  • Allied

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 21st November 2016

    Brad Pitt, I have decided, is too handsome. My reaction to more or less anything he does on screen these days is instinctively: "Yeah, but this character wouldn't look like that. No one does." In Allied, which is fine and all that but a bit daft, he marries Marion Cotillard while looking amazing then grows suspicious she is a spy while looking amazing, and I can't shake the feeling that all of this looking amazing is part of a comfort zone out of which he's unprepared to step.

  • Behind the scenes pics of The Walk prove it does not walk the walk

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 20th February 2015

    Heading to cinemas in October of this year is The Walk, a dramatized version of Philippe Petit's death-defying wire walk between the Twin Towers, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt. Vanity Fair have just released behind the scenes photos that make you not want to watch it.

  • Flight

    Movie Review | Matt | 29th January 2013

    As with every year, the Best Actor Oscar of 2013 will no doubt be given to the actor who has portrayed the greatest character affliction. So let's tally up: Bradley Cooper had mood swings, Joaquin Phoenix had um... something, Daniel Day-Lewis had... a beard? And Hugh Jackman sang. A lot. Lucky then for Denzel Washington who plays an alcoholic. Also, pity poor John Hawkes for not even getting nommed.

  • Disney pop mo-cap in Zemeckis' ass

    Movie News | Ali | 14th March 2010

    Last stop for The Polar Express. Disney have shut down Robert Zemeckis' motion-capture studio ImageMovers Digital studio, meaning you won't be seeing his corpse-eyed puppet people any more.

  • Back To The Future III ruined forever

    Movie News | Ali | 3rd January 2010

    A video that ensures you'll never be able to watch the end of Back To The Future III in the same way. Damn, Doc Brown has some crazy-ass genes...

  • Robert Zemeckis thinks Robert Zemeckis worthy of an Oscar

    Movie Feature | Ali | 26th November 2009

    And the award for Only Person Who Still Believes Performance Capture Is The Future goes to...

  • A Christmas Carol

    Movie Review | Rob | 16th November 2009

    A Christmas Carol is one of the most well-known and much-loved stories of all time - a story that's been adapted so many times that it's hard to get particularly excited about a fresh take. So, when it was announced that Robert Zemeckis was going to make yet another version, using the same motion-capture technology he used with The Polar Express and Beowulf, it registered with a tremendous meh. A Christmas Carol without the Muppets just doesn't seem right.
