  • The Two Faces Of January

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 15th May 2014

    Now I don't want you to be alarmed or make any sudden movements, but I've read the book on which this film is based. Like, all the way through. I sort of remember it, too. Which is why I told the guys they could keep their X-Men and their Godzillas, because this week I be Highsmithin'. No, I wasn't invited to the other screenings, but I don't see how that's relevant.

  • Bachelorette

    Movie Review | Ali | 16th August 2013

    Imagine The Hangover crossed with Bridesmaids, then take away everything that made those individual movies great, then throw in a couple of extra assholes to fill the void. That's Bachelorette: a deeply cynical movie without a single sympathetic character that wastes almost every ounce of talent involved on a threadbare plot and a script with a thick streak of nasty humour running through it.

  • "One ticket to Upside Nmoo, please!"

    Movie News | Ali | 29th January 2013

    The perils of clever typography. (Upside Down poster via IMDB).

  • On The Road

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 11th October 2012

    I don't know me too much 'bout no fancy book-learnin', but I do know you can get away with a lot more fannying about in a book than you can in a film. After watching On The Road I was left with the impression that Jack Kerouac's book, from which it was adapted and which I've never read, was probably a disjointed, stream-of-consciousness kind of affair, in which traditional notions of narrative structure matter less than the overall mood. Well, good for you, Jack (*tousles Kerouac's hair*). But this is a book that's long been thought unfilmable, and it's easy to see why.

  • Today I learned: Kirsten Dunst and McG made a J-pop video

    Movie News | Luke | 14th March 2012

    TIL is a regular-ish item where we reveal how little we know about the magical world of movies, by showing you stuff you've probably seen before elsewhere. Basically it's an excuse to post old news. In that spirit; here's a video from 2009 of Kirsten Dunst prancing about dressed like Sailor Moon or some creepy shit like that.

  • Spider-Man 4 due in May 2011

    Movie News | Matt | 16th September 2009

    With the nightmares of a jiving Toby Maguire thankfully fading, we can now look forward to the next instalment of the Spider-man franchise. The webslinger's fourth big screen outing has been given an official release date of 5 May 2011.

  • How To Lose Friends And Alienate People

    Movie Review | Ali | 4th October 2008

    Toby Young is an asshole. His memoir, How To Lose Friends And Alienate People, is a self-penned documentation of the Brit writer's total lack of class and charm, following his disastrous stint at hoity-toity society magazine Vanity Fair in the late '90s. While overseas, Young systematically managed to insult, repel and repulse t...

  • Spider-Man 3

    Movie Review | Ali | 21st May 2007

    Spider-Man 3 is long. It's very long. In fact, before going to see it, you might want to check what time it finishes, because if you're anything like me (i.e. a dunce) and don't check the train times, you might end up stranded outside your local Odeon at 1am with no buses in sight and a minicab that's destined to eternally be ...

  • Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind

    Movie Review | Ali | 3rd September 2004

    They say the average human only uses 5% of his brain. Charlie Kaufman is certainly not the average human, and if scientific boffins were to poke their bits and bobs into his frontal lobe, I think you'd find the results to be most startling. The creative genius behind Being John Malkovich and Adaptation, Kaufman is the hottest ...

  • Spider-Man 2

    Movie Review | Ali | 2nd September 2004

    "With great power comes great responsibility." These words more than any others were hammered home in the first instalment of Spider-Man, an ethos passed down from his uncle that Peter Parker came to live by. Bizarrely enough, it became something of a motto for director Sam Raimi, too; the plaudits he received for th...
