I have a new policy when it comes to watching films. It’s very simple but it has really changed the films I watch and enjoy. Here it is: I don’t want to know anything about a film before I watch it; I don’t want to know who directed it, stars in it, where it was made or what language it is in.
Now obviously this means that I watch a lot of crap.... [Read more of this review]
Phwoaar. Now this is a movie. Tom Hardy plays Ivan Locke, a concrete farmer, a man who pours concrete and not only that, he that he might just be the best God-damned concrete farmer on the planet on his way home to his loving family before the biggest commercial pour in European history. Then he receives a call.

20,000 Days on Earth
Before I start to discuss 20,000 Days on Earth, I must disclose my Nick Cave fanboy status. From the very first listen he provoked a very teenage level of devotion and hero worship from me. I own all of his records, have read all of his books and bought far too many of his t-shirts. I am gay for Cave and only Cave.

In an era where so much of what we see on the cinema screen has been digitally enhanced to the nth degree, Hossein Amini’s The Two Faces Of January appears as something of a curiosity.

We absolutely can’t wait to see Ted. It’s the story of Johnny (Mark Wahlberg) a regular guy who falls in love with a girl (Mila Kunis). The thing is, he’s constantly dogged by a rather special friend – a hard-drinking, pot-smoking teddy bear that came to life as a result of a childhood wish and just won’t leave.
It’s... [Read more of this review]
The Expendables 2 Full Trailer
Can you say “KABOOOOOM!!!”? Introduced by Sly himself (who seems to have some trouble getting the name of his movie right), it’s big it’s loud, it’s got massive explosions, it’s got more testosterone than you can waggle a bicep at, it’s got Jason Statham delivering some great one-liners (“I now pronounce...
