  • The Girl On The Train

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 7th October 2016

    Here's Emily Blunt on the Girl on the Train poster, looking suspiciously like she has more make-up on than she does in the actual film (again). She's very much the best thing about it, but still: if there's one genre for which I have a soft spot, it's the serviceable but unexceptional thriller.

  • Did they... Did they put makeup on Emily Blunt on the Sicario poster?

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 20th September 2015

    I've been walking past the poster for Emily Blunt's hitman drama Sicario for weeks now, but just assumed the one-sheet in Holborn station had been vandalised. Apparently that's not the case: every version of this Sicario poster has Emily Blunt made up to look like a Victorian prostitute.

  • Nine exciting new potential titles for Edge Of Tomorrow: Live Die Repeat

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 10th October 2014

    The Warner Bros marketing team have got themselves in quite the pickle with Edge Of Tomorrow. Despite being critically acclaimed and featuring the biggest movie star in the world in the lead role, Edge Of Tomorrow flopped in cinemas, leading to drastic measures - the title has changed to Live Die Repeat. We say this: IT HASN'T CHANGED ENOUGH.

  • Edge Of Tomorrow

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 30th May 2014

    "See Paris die!" In 2005, Warner Bros took a novel approach to marketing their horror remake House Of Wax: they knew audiences wanted to see the film's star, Paris Hilton, meet a grisly end, and they didn't shy away from spoiling her character's fate. You can't help but think, then, that Warners have missed a trick promoting Edge Of Tomorrow, a sci-fi time-loop thriller that sees star Tom Cruise killed in around 50 different ways, only to wake up very much alive the morning before. "See Tom die!" would get way more people into the cinema than "Live. Die. Repeat" and that's a shame, because Edge Of Tomorrow is a terrific action movie that deserves to be seen by as many people as possible. It's taut, twisted and blackly funny in ways that only movies in which Tom Cruise gets crushed under the wheels of a truck can be.

    LIVE. DIE. REPEAT. Right?

  • I just realised where I recognise Tom Cruise's running in Edge Of Tomorrow

    Tom feels so free! And so graceful!

  • Looper

    Movie Review | Ali | 10th September 2012

    I saw Looper on Friday last week, and rather than frantically post a knee-jerk reaction review as soon as possible, I thought I'd attempt something a bit different. I loved it and immediately wanted to froth about how it was the best sci-fi of the year and a genre classic in the making, but these sort of labels can only be correctly applied with time. Thus, I'm posting this feature with a blank space, in which my future self – 30 years into the future, as in the film – can write his considered opinion, discussing the longevity of Looper and whether it stood the test of time. Hopefully by 2042 time travel will have been invented and the Ali Gray in 30 years will be able to send back his review, giving us a unique insight into how Rian Johnson's film held up. Fingers crossed it works!

  • The Five-Year Engagement

    Movie Review | Ali | 20th June 2012

    I've been putting off my review of The Five-Year Engagement for ages now, despite having written notes at the screening I attended about two weeks ago. Exhaustion is about to consume me, so instead of putting the review off for another day, I'm just going to forget about the in between parts and fancy words and cohesion that comes with a proper write-up and just let you read my raw notes. Think of it as an interesting case study. Or, like a massively lazy excuse for a post. Sorry. Normal service will resume soon. Most probably.
