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

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.

December flew by in a string of weekend wake-ups. But while the cool kids were watching free films, the REALLY cool kids were eating cupcakes - the even cooler kids stole several cupcakes for their imaginary children.

With embargoes flying around like the lurgy, it came down to cupcakes to provide a metaphorical opinion outlet. So here are the definitive cupcake critiques for Gulliver's Travels and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. And no, Disney didn't offer up cupcakes to the Tangled masses. Meanies. I had to review a banana just to get the cupcake withdrawal out of my system.


Gulliver's Travels



The Voyage of the Dawn Treader



What Twitter said

(Before) "I fully expect this cupcake to be TERRIBLE"

(After) "Delicious. Better than Narnia cupcake. Lots of frosting, nice light sponge & tiny bits of glitter on top"

@robbiereviews: "YES!!!!! It wasn't just me!!!! (That loved the cupcake.)"


What Twitter said

(Before) "Cupcake for the win! #happyaslan"

(After, watching Love Actually) "Hugh Grant. Heathrow airport. VOMITS UP NARNIAN CUPCAKE"



What the film review said

"Robots and midgets and Jack Black. Oh my."


What the film review said

"Too much crap sinks the script." 


Cupcake verdict

Sparkly glitter is great on top of any food. Especially when it's edible and you're not expecting it. Complete with its pretty swirly pink icing and moist centre, surprise cake was an ideal climax to Sunday morning breakfast.




Cupcake verdict

The swirly pink icing returns with a vengeance, but the dry sponge wasn't all that delectable. Plus it was ruined by having a giant Dawn Treader logo stuck on the top. Nice sexy hand holding it, though. I'm like Nigella innit.
