LFF 2012 Line-Up

The London Film Festival is almost here - and the line-up is exciting stuff.

ParaNorman review

Slimy, spooky and very, very silly. Freak your children out it with as soon as possible.

Berberian Sound Studio review

Foley shit, it's awesome.

Samsara review

Cinema in its purest form - even David Attenborough wouldn’t talk over it.

Genius of Hitchcock

As the BFI's retrospective of the master of suspense continues, learn about all things Alfred.

To Rome with Love review

For all its flaws, there are bits that are bang-on, showing an unabashed love of silliness just for the heck of it.

Samsara Q&A

Ron Fricke and Mark Magidson decipher their stunning non-linear documentary, Samsara.

The Amazing Spider-Man Cupcakes

Our very own amazing Spider-Noms. IN 3D.

HUGE Hobbit banner sees Gandalf vs bear Print E-mail

Stop what you're doing and put aside five minutes. Now look at this HUGE Hobbit banner, which has popped up online over at Entertainment Weekly.


The Hobbit - Gandalf, Beorn


You can scroll and zoom through the whole ruddy thing on the EW site - and it's MASSIVE. But the highlight? Gandalf vs a bear. Or, to be more accurate, Beorn, the shape-shifter played by Swedish actor Mikael Persbrandt.

There's also lots of Martin Freeman, shiny sword Sting and and many sexy dwarfs.

I don't much care about Comic-Con, but if this steady stream of Hobbit posters and artwork keeps on coming, hell, they should host it every weekend.

Read on for the whole Hobbit banner. Then set aside another five minutes to wipe that drool off your face.

I hate Mondays. They're cold. They're grey. They're sleepy. They're miserable. And they - OH LOOK, A NEW HOBBIT POSTER FOR COMIC-CON.




I love Mondays. *happy face*

Stop showing me trailers and give me Lawless now Print E-mail

Like any normal person, I love looking at Guy Pearce's face with no eyebrows. But with the new Lawless trailer hitting the internet over at Yahoo!, the time comes when you just have to say: enough is enough, John Hillcoat. Just give me Lawless now.

Tom Hardy, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Clarke, Gary Oldman, Guy Pearce, Noah Taylor and Mia Waskowska will all wear hats and be awesome on Friday 7th September.


Introducing... the new RoboCop 2000 Print E-mail

Introducing the new XT-908. ED-209. And RoboCop 2000.

Thumbs up to MGM for Omnicorp's first promotional video - although we're still a long way off Weyland Corp's David.



Of course, if MGM want to make us excited about their RoboCop reboot, they just need to reprint that cast list again. Gary Oldman, Samuel L Jackson, Abbie Cornish AND Hugh Laurie? Yeah, I'd buy that for a dollar.


Which leads me to my latest theory on the whole RoboremakeCop thing. Let's be clear: it doesn't need to exist. At all. Even with that ridiculously good cast on board. So why bother at all? Not money, no. Movie studios would never reboot a franchise just for commercial gain. There's something more sinister at work...

Cool things in London that you should go to or not or whatever Print E-mail

One of the most annoying things in the universe (immediately behind Adam Sandler) is discovering there’s a cool event happening… the day after it happened. Equally annoying is being aware that something cool is about to happen… and you’re unable to get there.

So, brace yourselves for the most frustrating blog post you'll ever read. Here are some cool film things going on in London this week/tonight/very soon/yesterday. You should try and get to all of them – unless a. you don’t live in London, or b. your self-cloning/time travel experiment went wrong and now you have no legs.


Cool Thing #1: Designing 007 @ Barbican


Designing 007 Barbican


Let’s face it, you don’t need to hear my crap Lulu impression (again) to know what that it. And it’s at the Barbican Centre from tomorrow night – TOMORROW, THERE’S STILL TIME – complete with a load of concept art and technical drawings from Ken Adam, a first edition of The Man with the Golden Gun (a better novel than the film), some sexy automobiles (hello, Aston Martin) and, erm, that ice dragster from Die Another Day. Which presumably is there for comic relief.

The star of the show is arguably the ton of costumes on display (including Sean Connery’s Sinclair tux from Dr. No). But it goes without saying that the success of the event hinges entirely on whether they have this waiter’s suit from Tomorrow Never Dies...

Breaking: Jack Reacher teaser trailer filmed entirely at 45 degree angle Print E-mail

Tom Cruise, Jack Reacher

The first Jack Reacher teaser trailer has turned up online - and I can now exclusively reveal that the movie will be filmed entirely at a 45 degree angle.


In other words, it'll be like watching the first 10 minutes of Lord of the Rings over and over again for two hours. With a Hobbit playing the role of Gandalf. (On the plus side, film schools will be able to use the movie for generations to demonstrate how to use a low-angle shot.)



Read on for the Jack Reacher teaser trailer. And try not to laugh too hard when Tom steps out his Playmobil car and beats up half the population of Trumpton with his tiny, tiny hands.
