The Kids Are All Right

The kids aren't just all right, they're great. This is amusing, honest stuff. With lesbians.

Burke & Hare

More fun than having your leg chopped off, Burke & Hare is about as deep and historically accurate as an ipod.

Tron Night: The Verdict

The verdict on Tron Legacy's 23-minute preview. Hint: it looks awesome.

Despicable Me

Likeable fun with a lazy conclusion, Despicable Me shoots for the moon, steals it, then lets it go again. Above average, but below Pixar.

Best Movie Pumpkins

With Halloween scaring kids across the country, here are the best film-themed carvings to stick in your window.

London Film Festival

All the reviews and interviews you could possibly want from this year's LFF. Plus some stuff about toilets.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

An epic adventure of fluffy, George Lucas proportions. Derivative, but thrilling.

The Social Network

A convincing case for a 21st Century Charles Foster Kane, The Social Network is a courtroom drama of petty politics and understated genius.

LFF Toilet Quiz

The official BFI LFF Toilet Quiz! Spot the bog, name the cinema. Simple.

Brief Encounters: The Social Network

The cast and Aaron Sorkin chat about Facebook, Faust and summing up a generation.

The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud

A slushy piece of drivel that should drop the third and fourth word of its title.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Money Never Sleeps isn't the wake up call it wants to be, but it's a safe bet more than a bail-out.

Let Me In is...

Paranormal Activity 2 is out and Saw 3D is imminently upon us - yes, it's Halloween again and rather than list the scariest horror movies or discuss Let Me In vs Let the Right One In (again), I thought we'd go for something a tiny bit different.

As anyone who's every carved a pumpkin knows, it's frickin' difficult to do well, especially if you're aiming for a cinematic likeness. Which is why we've rounded up the best movie pumpkins on the internet to give you some solid inspiration before you start cutting out orange holes. It was either that or kidnap Neil Buchanan and force him to make a Horror Movie Art Attack. And this was far easier.


Death Star - spotted a long time ago in a hotel lobby by Jason Reitman, this fully operational vegetable is a great example of attention to detail, boredom, and a waste of hotel money.



Gremlins - anything orange that has Gizmo on it is clearly made of awesome. And pumpkin. 



Ghostbusters - who you gonna call? The person who made this so you can congratulate them. At the moment, this is more exciting than the prospect of Ghostbusters 3.






King Kong - get a load of this flaming yellow monkey. We just need a Godzilla pumpkin to smash it into.




Stormtrooper - there's certainly a Star Wars thing going on here. Which shows you what kind of people carve pumpkins every year: geeks.



Boba Fett - this carving captures the manly muscles of the universe's best bounty hunter. Phwoar.


  The Joker - nothing quite says jumping on the bandwagon like something featuring a picture of Heath Ledger as The Joker. But hey, this is healthier than one of those annoying t-shirts.

Where the Wild Things Are - just when you thought Maurice Sendak's story couldn't get any cuter...




Thanks to Maniac Pumpkin Carvers for some images.
