  • Love And Other Drugs

    Movie Review | Matt | 20th December 2010

    When does a rom-com stop being a rom-com? When it's R-rated? You'd think that the very definition of such a certification would ensure that the usual saccharine sentiment is swapped out for something more substantial. Unfortunately, no amount of F-bombs, extensive nudity and scenes of distressing drama can save this film from all the well-known romantic comedy trappings. So, essentially, this is just When Harry Fucked Sally.

  • Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time

    Movie Review | Ali | 22nd May 2010

    Movie rule of thumb #1: if Jerry Bruckheimer's name is on the poster, check your brain in with your coat. Prince Of Persia is typically undemanding summer blockbuster fare - all SFX and stylish set-pieces, but very little in the way of substance. I'm not complaining. These movies have their place. But if you're making a big, dumb movie that invites you to switch off and enjoy, then don't over complicate the plot - Pirates Of The Caribbean did it and Prince Of Persia does it too. It's a Bruckheimer trait.

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 2nd November 2009

    YouTube, of all places, is home to the first trailer for Mike Newell's Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time videogame adaptation. What say the judges? Well, it's very... beige. And there's lots of sand. That's good, right?

With titles like Independence Day and Godzilla under his belt, Emmerich is showing no signs of satisfaction and craves yet more destruction of major cities around the world (showing a particular dislike for New York).
