  • mother!

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 11th September 2017

    I've had nightmares like mother!, proper sweat-drenched, bolt-upright air-gaspers that have left me shaken for hours. The ones where ordinary, mundane events turn hellish in an instant. The ones where your loved ones are there too but they're in on the bad juju, their blank faces betraying the feverish insanity you feel. Mother!, the new movie from Darren Aronofsky, is the closest a film has ever come to replicating one of those bad dreams; how quickly the drip-drip-drip of reason gushes into madness, how helpless we are in the face of our own demons and how it's always the ones we love that hurt us most. That exclamation mark in the title does not signify a comedy - it's the kind you see shortly before you plummet off a cliff.

  • Extrapolating Nick Nolte's physical degradation from this Noah set pic

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 14th January 2014

    Darren Aronofosky has announced that Nick Nolte had joined the cast of Noah, and tweeted this pic as proof. From this image, we can assume that providing ADR causes Nick Nolte severe physical discomfort, thus we can extrapolate what he might look like by the time his stint in the sound booth is over.

    And this is accounting for 14 hours sleep a night and a two-day-week.

    Movie Feature | Matt | 26th September 2012

  • Black Swan

    Movie Review | Ali | 24th January 2011

    How to describe Black Swan? Ballet-based lesbionic headfuck just about does it - there certainly aren't too many pigeon holes you can bash this particular peg into. Though it touches on a number of genres and encapsulates several themes, Black Swan is best viewed as a horror movie - a slow creep into insanity that's touching and terrifying in equal measure.

  • Angelina Jolie gives us wood

    Movie News | Ali | 1st March 2010

    Fnar fnar. Angelina Jolie has opted out of the sequel to Wanted to make a movie about a pair of newlyweds who build a timber empire during the Depression. There is no punchline to this joke.
