  • Hereafter

    Movie Review | Ali | 27th January 2011

    Hereafter opens with a tsunami. Despite some occasionally shaky CG effects (correction: occasionally shaky Oscar-nominated CG effects), it's a powerful, harrowing scene, particularly in light of the recent worldwide floods. It's also quite apt, as the following two hours of Hereafter can only be described as a tsunami of boredom - you'll be helpless as waves of indifference crash down on you and you're overcome by a strong torrent of sludgy dialogue. Before long, the afterlife starts to sound pretty damn appealing.

  • The Bourne Legacy won't actually feature, er, Jason Bourne

    Movie News | Ali | 10th October 2010

    A fourth Bourne movie is definitely going ahead, but won't actually feature Jason Bourne. Yep, it's going to be the Halloween III of the franchise.

  • Trailer for The Adjustment Bureau

    Movie Trailer | Matt | 13th May 2010

    It's a sci-fi film based on short story by Philip K Dick, but you wouldn't know it from the title. It might as well be called Blank Shrug Yawn.

  • Green Zone

    Movie Review | Darren | 17th March 2010

    Before the dust has even settled on the Iraq war, several filmmakers have cast their lens in the direction of the conflict and raised pertinent questions about what is essentially an ongoing crisis. That is unprecedented, considering war movies of the past are typically made a considerable period after the conflict has been done and dusted. No film this year will be as politically charged as Paul Greengrass' stirring and unflinching war movie.

  • Greengrass and Damon are Bourne free

    Movie News | Ali | 28th February 2010

    Paul Greengrass and Matt Damon have effectively cut their ties to the Bourne franchise, but they are still talking up a reboot. Hey Hollywood: reboot this. (*points to computer*). It needs a system update, motherfucker.

  • Ponyo

    Movie Review | Darren | 18th February 2010

    Spirited Away introduced a larger audience to the majestic works of Japanese anime genius Hayao Miyazaki, lifting the profile of the studio he founded, Studio Ghibli. Since then, the many magical yet ecologically conscious animated features within Miyazaki's impressive back catalogue - like Pom Poko and Nausicaa Valley Of The Wind - have been redistributed and are now readily available in high street stores.

  • Invictus

    Movie Review | Matt | 9th February 2010

    Nelson Mandela is one of those inspirational political figures that makes for great fodder when it comes to Oscar-baiting season. Throw in a stirring account of underdogs rising to their sporting challenge and you have the perfect Academy Award film, right? Maybe, but there is such a thing as 'too much substance over style' and Invictus falls into this trap, ultimately suffering from its own importance.

  • Bourne 4: kiss Greengrass goodbye

    Movie News | Ali | 30th November 2009
