  • Skyline trailer #2 is much better

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 29th September 2010

    It'll still probably be awful. But fun all the same. Because even the worst alien invasion films are better than a punch in the dick.

  • Boner alert: True Grit trailer

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 27th September 2010

    The Coen Brothers reteam with The Dude to out John Wayne John Wayne? The first True Grit teaser trailer is this way, cowboy.

  • Skyline trailer hopes you've never seen an alien invasion movie before

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 11th August 2010

    It's been at least 36 hours since the last alien invasion movie was released: high time for another close encounter. Of the turd kind? (*ponders*)

  • The Brothers Bloom

    Movie Review | Chris | 7th June 2010

    With The Brothers Bloom, writer/director Rian Johnson (Brick) firmly cements his reputation as one of the most original and daring cinematic voices of his generation.

  • Brothers

    Movie Review | Kirsty | 24th January 2010

    Is it just me, or has there not been a good comedy out in months? Thanks very much, Oscar season, for a series of thoughtful, harrowing dramas that put you right off your popcorn in the harsh, cold light of day. Yeah gang, let's all go to the movies on a Friday night! That'll be fun! (*sigh*)

  • The Book Of Eli

    Movie Review | Darren | 23rd January 2010

    Perhaps it's a reflection on the slightly darker times we live in, but cinema has come over all post-apocalyptic as we enter 2010: vampires preying on the few remaining living in Daybreakers; Viggo Mortensen battling for survival in a grim new world in The Road; and the forthcoming Legion will feature a retelling of the end of days. So much for entering the New year with a sense of optimism. The Book Of Eli furrows all too familiar post-apocalyptic territory with a grim vision of the future that is entirely bland and rather phoney.

  • Ninja Assassin

    Movie Review | Kirsty | 21st January 2010

    There are three irrefutable things in life; death, taxes and the fact that ninjas are cool. Ninjas speeding around Europe on a one-man vendetta to take down all other ninjas armed only with a knife and Hollyoaks hair? Ice cold, friends, ice cold. That's the premise of the latest martial arts action-a-thon from James McTeigue and The Brothers Wachowski.

  • Ninja Assassin red-band trailer

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 25th November 2009

    Warning: only one ninja was harmed in the making of this trailer. The rest... were killed.

  • A Serious Man

    Movie Review | Anna | 21st November 2009

    According to the Shr'dinger's Cat paradox, if you put a cat in a sealed box with a vial of poison that has a 50-50 chance of being released and killing the cat (sorry cat lovers), then until the box is unsealed, the cat is neither alive or dead. It exists in both states until the box is unsealed and the cat is observed to be one thing or the other.

  • Burn After Reading

    Movie Review | Ali | 19th October 2008

    Just nine short months after No Country For Old Men was released to critical acclaim and just eight short months after it bagged the Best Picture Oscar (among others), the Coen brothers present a film that couldn't be more different in tone. There are similarities - like Llewelyn Moss, the central characters here are forced into...
