    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 27th August 2013

    In bringing to prominence the idea of the American Dream in his 1931 book Epic of America, James Truslow Adams wrote that it was "a dream of social order in which each man and each woman shall be able to attain to the fullest stature of which they are innately capable". In doing so he likely didn't foresee that one day a film starring Marky Mark and The Rock would distort the notion with glorious excess, suggesting that it is a hollow hope when misinterpreted by the ignorant. Or that I would steal his quote from Wikipedia and pass it off as serious historical research.

  • Despicable Me 2

    Movie Review | Ben | 29th June 2013

    You could slap a three-star review on Despicable Me 2 and most people wouldn't complain, but whether you enjoy it or not depends entirely on two things: how much you enjoy the slapstick comedy of the minions, and how much schmaltz you can tolerate. The only way to give it a fair review is via the medium of chart.

  • The Hangover: Part III

    Movie Review | Ali | 22nd May 2013

    Only now that it has reached its merciful conclusion, we can see that The Hangover trilogy plays out a lot like a night of drunken excess. To start with, everything you say or do seems riotously funny and original. Then, as the night grows old, the attention goes to your head; you begin to repeat yourself, and your humour takes on a nasty edge. Finally, three sheets to the wind and completely intoxicated on your own brilliance, you become boorish, hateful, unnecessarily violent, idiotic and completely unrecognisable from the man you once were. That's certainly how my Saturday nights usually pan out, anyway.

  • Community renewed for fifth season, negating pun I thought of

    TV News | Ed Williamson | 11th May 2013

    Community landed a 13-episode fifth season at NBC yesterday. This is splendid news, but it does mean I have no reason to use the headline 'Troy and Abed in the mourning' that I thought of a couple of weeks ago when I was pretty sure it'd be cancelled. Remind me when it happens and I'll throw it in somewhere.

  • Is Ken Jeong Hollywood's most irritating man?

    Movie Feature | Ali | 7th April 2013

    The new poster for The Hangover: Part III is here, and Ken Jeong looks more punchable than ever, even in two dimensions. Is Jeong the most annoying actor working in Hollywood? (Spoiler: he is).

  • Community: actually back for real this time

    TV Video | Ed Williamson | 4th February 2013

    On Thursday. Probably. Unless Chevy Chase takes out a last-minute injunction, or they bump it for a half-hour Days of Our Lives special or whatever.

  • BREAKING: Chevy Chase took this long to leave Community

    TV News | Ed Williamson | 22nd November 2012

    I don't know about you, but the last time I left my boss an expletive-strewn voicemail then dropped the N-bomb in front of black colleagues, they didn't let me hang around long. Still, he's Chevy Chase ... and we're not. So long, Pierce.

  • Community: The Complete Second Season DVD

    TV Review | Ed Williamson | 26th September 2012

    You'll have noticed that we don't do DVD Weekly any more. It's difficult - arguably futile - to maintain a weekly feature based on DVDs you haven't seen, especially when most of them are reissues of Boon. So yeah, we probably just won't bother covering DVDs from now OH WAIT HERE'S A REALLY GOOD ONE

  • Return of Community 3.1

    TV Video | Kirsty Harrison | 8th March 2012

    It's what we've been waiting for people... it's back like Mark Morrison, and unlike Mark Morrison - it's awesome.

  • DVD weekly: Chevy Chase, Zack Morris and the magic of TV

    TV Feature | Matt Looker | 15th November 2011

    Here at , we review the best of the week's new DVD and Blu-ray releases so that you don't have to. Not that you would - you'd probably just buy them and watch them. And maybe not even that. Still, WORDS.
