Review: Ain't Them Bodies Saints

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

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.

When they said stylised, they really did mean stylised, didn't they?

Andy Serkis and Jamie Bell look nothing like Hergé's Tintin. Then again, Tom Hanks looked nothing like The Polar Express, so who's complaining? I'm still warming to this bizarre blend of cartoon style and photo-realistic motion capture. Then again, Peter Jackson and Steven Spielberg together can hardly cock this up.

The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn is out next October with Simon Pegg, Nick Frost and Daniel Craig in the line-up. Spielberg's directing it, and describes it as "contrasty" (technical term) and claims it owes a lot to film noir and Brechtian theatre. Because Brechtian theatre always had a dog in it. 

(Thanks to Empire for the images - they had the exclusive first look.)
