  • LFF 2016: Free Fire

    Movie Review | Matt Looker | 16th October 2016

    Remember that sequence in Spaced, where Tim gets out of a bind by initiating a pretend shootout with finger guns, safe in the knowledge that no one in the near vicinity can resist joining in? Ben Wheatley's new trigger-happy triumph plays out exactly like that, complete with stylised slow-mo, only with real guns, real bullet wounds and with it all carrying on for a real long time.

  • If Microsoft made Chappie

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 4th March 2015

    Remember how annoying Office assistant Clippy was? Now imagine him voiced by Sharlto Copley. "Ay, ewe look like you're roitin a fockin' littah!

  • Maleficent

    Movie Review | Becky Suter | 28th May 2014

    Getting over your first love can be tricky. When your heart has been torn from your chest and ripped to pieces in front of you by the cruel hand of fate (or by your childhood sweetheart), it's easy to believe that true love only exists in fairytales, particularly when you're standing outside their house at 2am, barefoot and screaming "WHHHHYYYY?!" Agony aunts will often offer up cheery advice such as "Take up a new hobby!" or "Try a daring new haircut!" My advice after watching Maleficent would be to get a set of leather horns, some red lipstick and go all 'bad witch' on his ass. Revenge has never looked so good.

  • Elysium

    Movie Review | Neil | 9th August 2013

    There is a point in Elysium when Matt Damon's character Max DeCosta suffers a massive dose of radiation in an accident in his workplace. At that moment the film looks like it could go one of two ways: either it's a lengthy commercial for a "no win, no fee" claims handler (don't do it Max, go to Citizens Advice), or it's a superhero origin story, and Damon is about to slip into some lycra and kill people with his granite-hard man boobs. You'll be unsurprised to read that Elysium is in fact neither, which is great for those of us who hate those ads, but less good for anyone who was hoping for MaxMan: Tits Of Thunder.

  • How to make Elysium appeal to the under 12s

    Movie Feature | Ali | 11th April 2013

    Move mouse over image to maximise box office

    It's the ultimate buddy movie! He's a man with machine parts, his partner is a robot... who just wants to be human! Directed by Shawn Levy!

  • Well, the first trailer for Elysium looks POWERFULLY XTREME

    Movie Trailer | Luke | 10th April 2013

    Jokes. Seriously though, it looks chuffing great, even if it doesn't feature a dog and an orangutan in space.

  • A-Team interview: Sharlto Copley

    Movie Feature | Ali | 25th July 2010

    So a while back, I was asked to interview the guys behind The A-Team (everyone except Liam Neeson) for a magazine article. I figured I might as well post the entire things this week for you fine people.

  • Explosive new A-Team photos

    Movie News | Ali | 15th January 2010

    Explosive because they feature an explosion. Just in case you were worried there wouldn't be any explosions in the movie. At least we now know there will be at least one explosion. Phew.

  • The A-Team movie trailer

    Movie Trailer | Ali | 11th January 2010

    Thought remaking The A-Team for the big screen was a dumb idea? Wait until you see the first trailer. Tanks! Planes! Tanks in planes shooting other planes? Why the hell not!

  • Sharlto Copley to play Howlin' Mad Murdock?

    Movie News | Matt | 10th September 2009

    The offers come flooding in when you're riding high at the box office - if you believe the rumour (and frankly, we're not sold), Sharlto Copley is being lined up to star as Howlin' Mad Murdock in the new A-Team flick.
