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.

It's hard getting through every day knowing that there's no new Flight of the Conchords to look forward to on TV. But Jemaine Clement fans can rejoice, because he's in cinemas this week as Rio's naughty bird, Nigel.

An unhinged malcontent, Clement's psychotic cockatoo is pretty much the best thing in the whole film, especially because he gets his own song (written, naturally, by the Conchords singer himself). 

It's a great bit of casting - the raw sexual prowess of New Zealand mixed with all the menace of Disney's Jafar. Oh yes, he's so good at being bad that my nephew had to go to the toilet out of pure fear. No surprises there: Nigel's meaner than the rhymenoceros and the hiphopopotamus put together.

Read on to watch Nigel's song. Then click play to watch it at least another four times. 



Like an abandoned school, I have no principles - genius.
