Raindance 2013 line-up announced

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.

Up house top

Ok, this is too cute not to mention.


As you may already know, I spend my day job hunting through stories about housing markets and other curious property news and came across a mad man - in, of all places, The Daily Mail.

Called Jonathan Trappe, he's a cluster-balloonist (easy there, Grandma) who attached a couple of hundred helium balloons to a tiny house and took off into the sky.

OMG, IT'S JUST LIKE THAT FILM UP. Except without the incredibly sad montage at the beginning, the stupid talking dogs and that horribly forced narrative structure that had nothing to do with the first half of the film.

So in other words, this is exactly what Up should have been. It's even in 3D.

Trappe is now planning to do the same thing again after raising some attention (and funds) with his house stunt - but this time across the Atlantic in summer 2013.

Expect it to be adapted in a blockbuster starring Dwayne Johnson and Michael Caine by the following Autumn. Journ3yD to the Sky, anyone?
