  • The Jungle Book

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 15th April 2016

    Will they... will they be singing? The 1967 classic animation is so embedded in the public consciousness that it's difficult to know what to expect from this live-action retelling. What will the life-like animals look like when they talk? Will Mowgli look just like cartoon Mowgli? Will Baloo at any point wear coconut shells and a hula skirt? And what of the songs? Those legendary earworms so infectious that it's going to be hard not to resort to punning references throughout this entire review? Thankfully, Jon Favreau delivers a film that is just as wonderful and captivating as that original classic, and he does so by concentrating on the bare n-... the basics. He concentrates on the basics.

  • The Monuments Men

    Movie Review | Rob Young | 21st February 2014

    Last summer I remember reading about George Clooney and Matt Damon playing basketball at a Cambridge council-run gym. They posed for photos, were called 'lovely people' by the manager and basically had a cracking time in south Cambridgeshire. And while in my neck of the woods, they shot scenes for The Monuments Men at the Imperial War Museum, Duxford: a joyful place I was often taken as a child by an over-eager father keen on Spitfires, but less keen on buying me an Airfix model of one.

  • Hyde Park On Hudson

    Movie Review | Matt | 2nd February 2013

    Bill Murray is great, isn't he? Is there any other person in the world with whom you'd rather have a chance encounter? He's like a mischievous uncle that you'd want to hang out with all the time; you could have a laugh and be sarcastic and pull funny faces. And then you'd introduce him to your friends because he's so cool and he'd get on with them too, sometimes even meeting them when you're not there and he'd probably make fun of you then and they'd laugh because they all like him better than you anyway and... actually, that would be awful. Fuck Bill Murray. That mad, magnificent bastard.

  • Let's play Wes Anderson Bingo!

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 14th January 2012

    The trailer for Wes Anderson's new movie, Moonrise Kingdom, has just been released. Because I literally knew nothing about it, I decided to play a little game of Wes Anderson Bingo.

  • Films on TV round-up: dystopian and Dickensian

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 11th December 2011

    Yes, I know X Factor's over for another year. But while you wait for the inevitable 'Let's get the Damien Rice version to Christmas number one instead' Facebook groups to spring up so you can join them and feel like a proper music fan again, fill the time with some films on TV instead.
