    Movie Review | Ali | 28th December 2006

    Boxing day; not a day traditionally associated with boxing by any means, or indeed any physical activity of the sort. No, in my borough, the day after Christmas is spent slumped on the sofa, consuming whatever's left of the family's confectionary, picking ones arse, and, if you're feeling especially adventurous, keeping the eye...

    Movie Review | Ali | 9th August 2006

    Time was, a completely CG film was a cinematic rarity, something that could be cherished and enjoyed as a genuinely original experience, a piece of work that represented the pinnacle of technology in the industry and could be embraced in the same way our parents and grandparents first took to regular cel-based animation. These ...

  • You, Me And Dupree

    Movie Review | Ali | 21st July 2006

    You, Me And Dupree is a film that is almost instantly forgettable. Even now, a few hours after watching it, I'm struggling to remember character names - it's that slight.

In this movie, weddings are awash with attractive, vulnerable, slutty young girls, raucous mus...

  • The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou

    Movie Review | | 27th February 2005

    Look up the word 'quirky' in your dictionary and chances are, there will be a nice little picture of Wes Anderson staring back at you, in his quirky glasses and with his quirky hair. It's probably not a label the guy will be happy with - it's one step away from being called weird - but with movies like Rushmore and The Royal Te...

  • Starsky & Hutch

    Movie Review | Ali | 6th September 2004

    Pre-conceptions at the ready everyone, it's another needless remake of a seventies TV show that no one asked for, needs or is willing to tolerate. Or is it? While film purists may scoff at a big screen outing for the cardigan-wearing cops and claim it represents yet another nail in the coffin for original movie making, the res...
