  • Some casting suggestions for Game of Thrones

    TV Feature | Iain Robertson | 6th March 2014

    Game of Thrones returns for its fourth season in April and, frankly, I can't wait. Despite this very website placing it a measly 16th in its list of top TV shows last year, it's easily the best thing on TV. (The list was topped by something called "Breaking Bad" which, although sounding very interesting, hasn't got dragons or naked fire priestesses in it, so fuck knows how that's meant to be better.)

  • 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.

  • Rock Of Ages

    Movie Review | Matt | 10th June 2012

    Power chords and rock ballads, permed hair and eye liner, bare tops and leather trousers... Rock Of Ages is a stone-cold medley of cheese and cliché. It riffs on dated guitar bands and power-anthems and it builds its city on dry ice and key changes. And yet... it still kinda rocks.

  • Films on TV round-up: exes, excitement and explosions

    TV Feature | Matt Looker | 26th June 2011

    Ed's disappeared from the internet for the weekend so I'm covering his regular Films on TV throughout the week feature. Only I'm short on time, so I've done a rush job with far less research and far more nonsensical rambling. Shit, is it too late to still put his name at the top of this?

  • Awful Photoshop pun of the day

    Movie News | Ali | 24th April 2011

    Yes, we know it's a terrible joke. Yes, we know someone else already made the same terrible joke. But the point is... er, we forget.

  • Arthur

    Movie Review | Rob | 22nd April 2011

    How you choose to take this remake of Dudley Moore's 1981 classic hinges entirely on your tolerance for a certain Russell Brand. Granted, his Arthur 2.0 is a slightly toned-down version of himself, and the pelvic thrusts, sex-mad antics, swearing and prank calls to aging comedians are at a minimum, but if you outright don't like the bloke, a top hat, tails and a cane is hardly going to change that.

  • Win Get Him To The Greek on DVD

    Movie Competition | Ali | 21st October 2010

    Love him or hate him, Russell Brand will be thrusting his pelvis in your face for years to come. Commemorate/commiserate this groinal invasion by winning his new movie, Get Him To The Greek, on DVD.

  • Get Him To The Greek

    Movie Review | Ali | 4th July 2010

    Let's play freestyle word association with Russell Brand. Ready? Go! Err... Ponce. Egomaniac. Twat? Mincing. Hair. Arrogant. Self-satisfied. Ponce? Hmm, done that one... Dandy. Pompous. Cad. Wordsmith. Flouncing. Umm... Funny?

  • Red-band Get Him To The Greek trailer

    Movie Trailer | Matt | 23rd March 2010

    Want to see more of Russell Brand hamming up his cockney lord act? Yeah, I'm undecided too. Still, as the new trailer for Get Him to the Greek shows, it might still be funny for a little while longer.
