  • Top 10 films of our lifetime #2: Children Of Men

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 25th September 2014

    I bloody love a good apocalypse. I think if I were a director, being given the chance to ruin the world and set up camp at ground zero would be like being a kid in a sweet shop: so much potential for iconic imagery, so many stories to tell, so many angles. In Children Of Men, Alfonso Cuaron tells the biggest story - the imminent extinction of mankind - yet manages to make it small and personal at the same time. And, true to form, he captures some unforgettable imagery along the way. I hope the real apocalypse looks this good - Ali.

  • Five special celebrity guest stars review Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 10th October 2013

    It's the done thing these days to have an expert review a movie for your website.

With no astronauts in my rolodex but a fervent desire to do a smug celebrity guest star review, I found the following five people who had the faintest tangential relationship with the film's subject matter. Enjoy!
