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

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.

So over the weekend, we all heard about how Javier Bardem was lined up to play Q in the now-definitely-on-its-way Bond 23. Bardem has now spoken to the LA Times about this reported offer of a major role in Sam Mendes' Bond film, and confirmed it all: "I’d be playing Bond's nemesis, yes... but it's not that obvious. Everything is more nuanced. It's very intriguing... They're changing the whole thing, the whole dynamic."

Which means one of things: either Q is now the bad guy, which is a direction I'm surprisingly comfortable with, or Javier Bardem will be the second Academy Award winner to play a 007 villain after A View to a Kill.


What could possibly go wrong?

Ok, I promise I'll stop posting stuff about James Bond films from now on. Except, you know, for every single month of the next two years...
