Who better than the guy who showed us gangsters being businessmen [Scorcese], to show us bankers being criminals?

Watch this film if you are a fan of the genre because it will be fun, but I don’t think you’ll be sleeping with the lights on.

Kick-Ass 2 // Review

Wednesday, July 31st 2013

See it if you like schoolgirls with swords, fast-paced fight scenes set to cool music or funny one-liners.

It’s the return of Kirk’s merry band of interracial, international, interstellar space cowboys...

He’s a millionaire playboy with the kind of reputation that would make Charlie Sheen’s biography read like Cider with Rosie

Before you can say “Fe Fi F-Oh Fu…” there’s more giants than you can shake an IMAX camera at, and they’re not happy.

A Good Day to Die Hard // Review

Monday, January 7th 2013

"Does Tarantino go too far? Hell yeah, and that’s why it works!" - Smiley reviews Tarantino's latest

The Hobbit // Review

Wednesday, December 5th 2012

Peter was in, Guillermo was out, and before you could say, “are you Tolkien the piss?” it was shot, edited and split it into THREE films!

007, the suave secret agent with Britain in his heart, blood like ice and the collective libido of plentyoffish.com.

Wednesday, September 19th 2012

Nolan took the darkest side of the knight for his Batman trilogy and now we get Dredd - the lawman that puts the mental in judgemental.

Ted

Wednesday, August 8th 2012

Meet the beer swilling, pot smoking, stripper loving, foul mouthed, un-cuddly toy that is Ted.

The Dark Knight Rises

Chronicle

Friday, February 10th 2012

A group of three teenage friends develop superpowers, and what starts off as an amazing discovery soon starts to corrupt them

The Muppets

Friday, February 10th 2012

Muppet Treasure Island starred TIM CURRY for Fozzie’s sake, giving some of the best acting the world has ever seen to, essentially, someone’s right hand!

The Grey

Liam Neeson heads up a group of oil rig workers whose plane crashes in Alaska.

Coriolanus

Friday, January 6th 2012

Make it your new year’s resolution to get a bit of culture and start with this adaptation of a lesser known Shakespeare play...

Underworld: Awakening 3D

Friday, January 6th 2012

Kate Beckinsale returns in PVC for the fourth instalment in the Vampire/Werewolf series.

Shame

Friday, January 6th 2012

It’s written and directed by UK artist Steve McQueen, so it should be “arty”. And by that I mean borderline porn!

The Iron Lady

Friday, January 6th 2012

"It looks like this film is in much safer hands than the coal mines (again, ask your dad)..."

MIssion Impossible 4

Tuesday, December 6th 2011

Crazy stunts and explosions galore - definitely one for the action fans.

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Tuesday, December 6th 2011

My initial distrust for US remakes gives way when faced with the idea of David Fincher directing, and with a soundtrack from Trent Reznor. If it doesn’t work, you can always just shut your eyes.

Sherlock Holmes 2

Tuesday, December 6th 2011

The plot thickens as Robert Downey Jr. returns as the world’s most famous fictional detective. I prefer Columbo personally, but the last one was pretty good.

The Thing

Tuesday, December 6th 2011

Atmospheric horror remake, lots of snow and blood – sounds like last Christmas.

Happy Feet 2

Monday, December 5th 2011

The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1

Wednesday, November 2nd 2011

"Glittery vampires, werewolves with six packs, yet somehow less than six nipples..."

Wednesday, November 2nd 2011

Real Steel

Tuesday, October 11th 2011

Rocky with robots. Surely there will be a montage, probably it will this time involve welding. Awesome!
