  • Robin Hood

    Movie Review | Rob | 15th May 2010

    The first time Ridley Scott made a big budget, historical epic with Russell Crowe, it worked out really rather quite well. Scott tried again five years later, only this time he roped in Orlando Bloom. That didn't work out so well. The lesson there is, don't work with Orlando Bloom. Now it seems Scott has learnt his lesson and got his Gladiatorial mate back for another historical/fictional jaunt, but this time, with bows, arrows and a Yorkshire accent (or something like it).

    Wake up, Robin Hood is robbing from the rich and giving to the poor again. No seriously, it looks better this time.

    Movie Trailer | Matt | 16th December 2009

    Robin Hood is back and, in addition to his mad archery and bow staff skills, he now has an inappropriate rock accompaniment — 'cos everyone knows the Sheriff of Nottingham can't stand the clang of electric guitars!

  • State Of Play

    Movie Review | Kirsty | 26th April 2009

    Let's say for argument's sake that Paul Abbott's 2003 mini-series State Of Play wasn't watched by everyone, and that many people will be coming to Kevin Macdonald's complex thriller completely cold, with no prior knowledge. Sitting comfortably? Let's begin. Cal McAfferey (Crowe), an old school investigative journalist for the...

  • American Gangster

    Movie Review | Ali | 28th November 2007

    Released bang in the middle of Oscar season with the lip-smacking prospect of two of Hollywood's finest actors going toe-to-toe in a gangster epic, Ridley Scott's latest picture promises much but struggles to delivery its weighty payload. American Gangster is a lengthy, character-based rise-and-fall story that pits Denzel Washin...

  • 3:10 To Yuma

    Movie Review | Ali | 16th September 2007

    The Western is in fine fettle at the moment, with flicks like The Proposition, Three Burials and yes, even Brokeback Mountain bucking the trend. The latest grizzled gunslinger to mosey into town is James Mangold's remake of 3:10 To Yuma, a more straightforward Western with nary a gay cowboy eating pudding in sight. In fact, it's...
