  • Sherlock sticks BAFTA in pipe, smokes it

    TV News | Ed Williamson | 23rd May 2011

    One thing I like about the BAFTA TV Awards is how none of them is called 'Best'� anything. What's more British than that? It's like sports day when the kid who turned up with no kit and had to run in his pants still got a prize because everyone's supposed to get treated the same. If that kid were here today and not strung out on glue in a car park stairwell somewhere, he'd tell you the BAFTA TV Awards 2011 winners are all after the jump.

  • Kiss my face, Alan's back

    TV Review | Kirsty Harrison | 19th November 2010

    Fosters may be terrible watery slop masquerading as lager, but we should still stop and raise a glass of other available beverage to its makers in thanks for a couple of things.

  • The Other Guys

    Movie Review | Christopher Ratcliff | 21st September 2010

    Before leaving the house this morning to see Will Ferrell's 403rd high-concept comedy this century, I quickly glanced at today's Guardian, the film and music section to be more precise, where the esteemed film critic Peter Bradshaw gave The Other Guys an unprecedented 5 stars.

Not seen Armando Ianucci's sublime political satire? Click here, wait 1-2 days for delivery and come back smiling af...

  • Tropic Thunder

    Movie Review | Ali | 22nd September 2008

    It's been seven years since Ben Stiller directed a movie, poking fun at the conceited world of male models in Zoolander. Now he's jabbing at a target closer to home - Hollywood actors and their diva-esque behaviour. There's no danger of Stiller being castigated by his own industry, mind - he's not so much biting the hand that fe...

  • Night At The Museum

    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...
