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

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.

Well that certainly isn't how I remember Jonathan Swift's novel.

Given a "contemporary re-imagining" by the guy who wrote Shark Tale, this disturbingly turd-like trailer shows us Jack Black arriving in Lilliput, town of small people. He's tied down because he's a big man (it's funny because he's fat). Then he becomes the town's hero and defends them against a Giant Robot (Chris O'Dowd fans look away now). And that's about it.

So we're bypassing Brodbingnag (town of tall people, where Gulliver is tiny), Laputa (the flying island) and Swift's other satirical societies in order to fully harness the hilarity as Jack Black does air guitar along to a miniature Kiss band. And plays table football.

The fact that this has Emily Blunt, Jason Segal, Billy Connolly, Amanda Peet, Catherine Tate and James Corden in it does not reassure me at all at this point. And that's saying a lot. 

Gulliver's Travels wades onto cinema shores on Boxing Day. For all its resemblance to its source material, this might as well be called the seasonal remake of Year One.
