  • Split

    Movie Review | Ali Gray | 19th January 2017

    Some actors go their whole lives without being offered a role as tasty as James McAvoy's character in Split. You've heard of roles being described as "scenery chewing"? In Split, M Night Shyamalan basically builds his sets out of beef jerky and invites McAvoy to tuck in. It's full-on Willy Wonka. As kidnapper Kevin who suffers from dissociative identity disorder (multiple personalities to you, me and I), McAvoy effectively has free reign of a buffet comprised of equal parts cheese, ham and bananas.

  • The Last Airbender

    Movie Review | Rob | 11th August 2010

    It's easy to ridicule M. Night Shyamalan. The ex- golden boy of Hollywood, with his clever, never-saw-it-coming twists, has been reduced to a laughing stock; his reputation in tatters after the atrocities that were Lady In The Water and The Happening.

  • Shyamalan's The Last Airbender to get shitty post-op 3D treatment

    Movie News | Ali | 23rd April 2010

    As long as filmmakers keep reaching for that extra 3D dollar, we'll keep Photoshopping dumb little 3D glasses on their characters' faces.
