  • Marvel's Cine-CHAT-ic Universe: Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)

    Movie Feature | Matt Looker, Ali Gray, Becky Suter, Ed Williamson, Luke Whiston | 25th November 2018

    Our semi-regular-certainly-far-less-regular-than-it-should-be feature Marvel's Cine-CHAT-ic Universe returns to take on The First Avenger Who Isn't Iron Man. Please enjoy the latest instalment of us talking about a Marvel film like it's never been done before in a format that really lends itself better to a podcast, but then we'd have to meet up and everyone's busy so then we're penning a date in the diary for several weeks' time which automatically makes it, like, a big thing and...

  • Stop shitting on The Matrix, adverts!

    Movie News | Ali Gray | 29th January 2014

    First Agent Smith was hired to promote General Electric Hospitals, now Morpheus literally sings the praises of KIA cars. What next, Trinity advertising tampons? "When I'm attempting to free the human race from the slavery of what they think is real life, I need to be able to think on my feet. The last thing I want to do is feel unclean... down there." (Morpheus via Empire).

  • #LFF2013: Mystery Road

    Movie Review | Neil Alcock | 1st October 2013

    For most of us, Australian cinema right now means stuff like Animal Kingdom, Snowtown and - at a push - The Sapphires, which is a state of affairs our barbie-obsessed upside-down cousins should consider fairly bonza. After all, it wasn't so long ago that their most notable cinematic export was Baz Luhrmann's Australia, a film whose very title The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw casually (and rather oddly) described as "flatulent". So it stands to reason that Mystery Road, a moody-looking crime drama from down under, could add another cork to the hat of Aussie film success; at the very least it seems unlikely that its title will be compared to an expulsion of fetid rectal gas. Although to be honest you never know with Bradshaw.

  • General Electric wantonly admitting they welcome viruses into hospitals

    Movie News | Ali | 14th April 2013

    Only a truly heartless corporation could allow Hugo Weaving's malevolent virus Agent Smith to wander their corridors of their hospitals unabated. Paging Mr Anderson, Mr Anderson to surgery! (via reddit)

  • Should actors be forced to watch their own movies?

    Movie Feature | Matt | 29th October 2012

    Hey Mr Actor-person, sir. If you're willing to take a huge vat of money in exchange for two hours' work, at least put the effort in to watch the results afterwards. What's that? No, you can't charge overtime for it.

  • Captain America: The First Avenger

    Movie Review | Ali | 22nd July 2011

    Even next to Thor, a movie about a space god with a magic hammer, Captain America: The First Avenger was always going to be one of Marvel's trickiest properties to do justice to. Here's what amounts to my review, in musical form.

  • Captain Team America has a trailer

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 24th March 2011

    I think I speak for us all when I say (*nervously tugs at collar*).
