  • #LFF2013: Inside Llewyn Davis

    Movie Review | Neil Alcock | 16th October 2013

    "If it was never new and it never gets old, then it's a folk song," mutters Inside Llewyn Davis' titular muso between performances from a dimly-lit Greenwich Village stage. Those might just be the folkiest words ever uttered, but while they're perfectly accurate, they could just as easily be applied to the Coen brothers' best work. The reassuring familiarity of the Coenverse's unique characters, patois and situations, which sit at ninety degrees to reality, is one of modern cinema's greatest pleasures, and the knowledge that they could take you anywhere is never less than tantalising. Inside Llewyn Davis delivers that old magic in spades, and includes an award-worthy performance from a cat to boot. What's not to love?

  • Runner Runner

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 26th September 2013

    I was all ready to kick off my Runner Runner review with some killer gambling analogies: how it had an ace up its sleeve, or how the action left you flushed, or even that it was just a flop. However, to my consternation, I quickly realised there was no gambling analogy than could adequately describe something so utterly ordinary and unremarkable. In poker terms, Runner Runner is the player who wins an average stack of chips, bets moderately, cashes out even and leaves before the game gets interesting. If it were a poker hand, it would be a pair of sixes. Good luck getting excited over a pair of sixes.

  • Trouble With The Curve

    Movie Review | Matt | 24th November 2012

    I'm not a huge sports film fan and, to be honest, I'm less interested in baseball than practically any other sport. It's pretty much at the bottom of my list, just below dressage and kabaddi. And this movie isn't even about playing baseball - it's about a grumpy old man watching it and complaining about life. It's basically Moanyball. (*high-fives self*)

  • These In Time digital postcards are in-ticing (enticing)

    Movie News | Luke | 29th September 2011

    Justin Timberlake and Amanda Seyfried wish you were here...

  • Time is money, or something

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 24th July 2011

    Here's an extended trailer for In Time, a baffling sci-fi in which (*adopts Voiceover Man gravitas*) time is Earth's new currency. If you say so, Justin Timberlake!

  • Bad Teacher

    Movie Review | Ali | 2nd June 2011

    If you're going to call your movie Bad Teacher and openly invite comparisons to Bad Santa, you'd better make sure your Teacher actually is Bad, and not just... y'know, a bit shit.

  • Actual plot synopsis: Justin Timberlake gets to fuck Mila Kunis

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 16th March 2011

    Friends With Benefits. No Strings Attached. Spot the difference.

  • Bad Teacher trailer: Cameron Diaz is a naughty girl

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 23rd February 2011

    Cameron Diaz's new movie, Bad Teacher, has a red-band trailer. Let's just say she hasn't got a hope in Hell of passing her OFSTED inspection at this rate. And that's no laughing matter.

  • Yogi Bear

    Movie Review | Matt | 11th February 2011

    No one was more surprised than me when I sat down to watch Yogi Bear and was actually confronted with an utterly fantastic update of one of my favourite childhood cartoons. The gags kept coming, each as sharp and funny as the one before, as I giggled away in my seat like the 8-year-old me did all those years ago. Alas, I'm not talking about the abysmal Yogi Bear movie itself, but the brilliant new Wile E Coyote and Road Runner 3D short shown beforehand.

  • The Social Network

    Movie Review | Ali | 16th October 2010

    The Social Network is not a movie that sounds good on paper. The origin story of Facebook, the most ubiquitous website on the web? David Fincher ditching his serial killer chic to focus on an internet start-up? Starring Justin Timberlake? Dammit, where's the 'dislike' button on this thing...
