But did they make a mistake in putting Julian Assange on their jury?

Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

Rooney Mara is fantastic in this delicate, sun-soaked Western

Review: About Time

Ever since I was a boy, I always wondered about voice-overs...

Film review: Wadjda

Every now and then, a film comes along that changes the world. Sometimes, you don't even realise it's doing it.

World War H – or hate’s not all that

What do Shyamalan, World War Z and Man of Steel have in common? Hype - and hate.

"Hi! I'm Dan Aykroyd! Check out this exclusive look at Yogi Bear! Only on Yahoo!"

Hit pause right there. There are moments on screen when you can literally see someone's soul die.

Yes, just after the poster turned up and depressed us all, the trailer has bungled its way onto the internet (at Yahoo! if you didn't guess) and ruined everyone's childhood. The significant drop in the population aside, Yogi in 3D is pretty much what you'd expect: unfunny slapstick, furry CGI animals, and lots of stupid talking.

The best thing about it is, surprisingly, Justin Timberlake, who seems to actually get Boo Boo's voice bang on. Everything else, from the live-action cast to the point-and-laugh pratfalls, well and truly sucks.

A kleptomaniac bear who lives in the woods wearing a tie? This trailer reminds us why it was so good that Wes Anderson did Fantastic Mr Fox in the first place. Oh look! He's running for a train! The train's a lot faster than the bear! He's still running! He's wearing a tie! Laugh Out Loud!

Again, the video's over at Yahoo! Movies (lucky them), but you can just read on to see the whole thing. And you can see the poster too.
