  • Django Unchained

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 14th January 2013

    I've seen Django Unchained twice now. After the second viewing, I looked back through the notes I'd made after the first, and realised that most of them were now useless. As with a lot of Quentin Tarantino's work, it takes more than one watch to fully form an opinion, but in this case I'd changed my mind almost entirely. I read back through them, crossing out complaints regarding its lengthy, meandering scenes and its jarring refusal to end at its obvious conclusion. But I understand these things better now for what they are: exercises in character development that make this one of its author's richest and most engaging works.

  • J. Edgar

    Movie Review | Ali | 17th January 2012

    One of the cardinal sins of film journalism is that you must never call a film 'boring' – professionalism dictates that there must be a more accurate way of singling out the movie's flaws; a more apt way of summing up why it disappoints. A dull script, perhaps, or flat performances. But no. There is no better way to summarise the ways in which Clint Eastwood's Hoover biopic fails: J. Edgar is just fucking boring. It just is. It looks boring, it sounds boring, it feels boring, it IS boring.

  • Films on TV round-up: More4 got mo' films, mofos

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 15th January 2012

    Hey, it turns out More4 show films as well as ... wait, what else do they have on More4? It's all politics and serious stuff, isn't it? I've no time for that, personally. All that thinking HURT ED HEAD.

  • An observation on J. Edgar

    Movie News | Ali | 26th November 2011

    I'm lucky enough to have awards screeners sent to my doorstep - or, more accurately, my letterbox - and sometimes the films haven't even been released in the UK yet. Look Mum, I've finally made it! Here are my first, unofficial opinions on Clint Eastwood's Hoover biopic, J. Edgar.

  • Trailer: J. Edgar is total Clint

  • Extraction: what Hollywood could and should learn from Inception

    Movie Feature | Ali | 18th July 2010

    Hopefully by now, you'll have already seen and begun to digest Inception. If you haven't, go and stand in the corner while I heap my shame upon you. Better, go and watch it, then go and stand in the corner. You can digest it while I heap my shame upon you.

  • Inception

    Movie Review | Matt | 10th July 2010

    Christopher Nolan is one stealthily clever bastard. While we've all been gasping at jaw-dropping trailers and trying to glean meaning from mind-boggling posters, the actual plot for Inception has remained relatively under wraps. Oh sure, it's a heist movie involving dreams, and you could always guarantee that Nolan would deliver a hefty dose of headfuckery with this subject matter, but you can check your assumptions in at the door - this is a film that defies all your expectations except for one: it is a work of genius.

  • New Inception trailer just because
