    Movie Review | Ali Gray, Arthur Gray | 5th July 2015

    I hold a special kind of contempt for people who indulge themselves in reviewing things that are blatantly not meant for them to enjoy; people who take pleasure in sticking the boot into something that is clearly aimed at a different demographic. I'm thinking the petulant one-star reviews of Kanye West's Glastonbury set, or Mark Kermode secretly enjoying giving the Entourage movie a kicking - everyone knows Kermode would rather stay at home watching The Exorcist with one hand in a pot of pomade and the other down his pants. You wouldn't send a Danny Dyer fan to review a Michael Haneke film, so why is the opposite true?

  • How Gravity should have ended

    Movie Feature | Becky Suter, Matt Looker | 12th March 2014

    WARNING: Contains massive spoilers. Also, dubiously sourced footage.

  • A few words on the Blu-ray release of Gravity

    Movie Feature | Matt Looker | 3rd March 2014

    Gravity may not have won many of the flashier, showier Oscar categories at this year's Academy Awards, but it still picked up the most trophies on the night. So what better reason - aside from the fact that I got sent a free copy in the post and feel obliged to do so - to talk about the film's DVD and Blu-ray release today?

  • Melissa McCarthy gains 30lbs in six months, changes eye colour

    Movie News | Ali Gray | 27th November 2013

    Still not quite sure why she has no ears, mind. (Context).

  • Five special celebrity guest stars review Alfonso Cuarón's Gravity

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 10th October 2013

    It's the done thing these days to have an expert review a movie for your website. The Hollywood Reporter had Buzz Aldrin give them his opinion on Gravity, FilmDrunk roped in an actual NASA rocket scientist for their review, while Digital Trends had to settle for two plain old astronauts, who hadn't even been on the moon or anything. With no astronauts in my rolodex but a fervent desire to do a smug celebrity guest star review, I found the following five people who had the faintest tangential relationship with the film's subject matter. Enjoy!

  • Better.

    Movie Feature | Ali | 24th June 2013

    First Melissa McCarthy offered a classy response to the awful Photoshop job on her film's UK poster, and now Fox have released this badass Mondo one-sheet, complete with actual-size actress. All in all, a good day for The Heat.

  • Amazing comment from Fox on the Melissa McCarthy slimming scandal

    Movie News | Ali | 13th June 2013

    It's the Photoshop scandal everyone's been talking about, including the Wall Street Journal, who got the preceding 'note' from a Fox spokesman.

  • Melissa McCarthy lost 30lbs on the Shitty Photoshop Diet

    Movie Feature | Ali | 7th June 2013

    "Hi! I'm actress Melissa McCarthy! You may remember me from Bridesmaids, or recent US hit Identity Thief! I'm here to tell you all about a new weight loss programme called The Shitty Photoshop Diet! It couldn't be easier!"

  • Movie maths: Weighing up the values in Speed

    Movie Feature | Matt | 18th October 2012

    Having recently sat through Speed – the greatest action film that isn't Die Hard or stars Nicolas Cage – again for hundredth time, I finally realised what's been bugging me about it for all these years. Basically... um... was it all worth it? But really though?

  • Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 13th February 2012

    September 11th, 2001. Pretty bad day, overall. But ten years on, 9/11 is beginning to take its place alongside the Vietnam War in inspiring a genre of American cinema in its own right, and the story of how the day unfolded and its aftermath resonated is taking shape through filmmakers' eyes. The wounds are still raw, but while there might have been cries of "Too soon!" when Oliver Stone and Paul Greengrass released World Trade Center and United 93 respectively in 2006, in relative terms these guys waited longer than Coppola did before Apocalypse Now. Stephen Daldry's Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close couldn't be accused of insensitivity: it's the first film I've seen to treat 9/11 as a historical event and look at the loss suffered in retrospect, rather than put you right in the middle of the clouds of debris or a doomed aeroplane.
