Impossible. Intelligent. Incredible. Inception is a 5 star film that dazzles as much as it boggles.

Twilight: Eclipse

Over-acted but not over-long, Eclipse is a step up from New Moon. This trashy horror romance has rediscovered something vital: a pulse.


Modern yet retro, Predators is the perfect fan-made beast: trashy, dumb and deliriously fun.


Kristin Scott Thomas continues to prove herself one of the best bi-lingual actresses around – when she’s English she’s very good, and when she’s French she’s faultless.

Shrek Forever After

You'll leave Shrek Forever After thinking it's a wonderful life. Mostly because you'll never have to sit through a Shrek film again.

Predators Special

Got Brody? Need mandibles? Celebrate all things alien, blood-soaked and trashy with our Predators Special.

Whatever Works

Far from ground-breaking, but Whatever Works is an enjoyable diversion from the empty void of meaning that is life. It's either that or jump out a window.

The Collector

A grizzly 90 minutes of grimly executed gore. The Collector is horrible, but highly gripping.

Wimbledon: The Hollywood Years

Tennis players and movie stars - it's hard to tell the difference. In a film called Wimbledon (if such a crazy idea were to exist) who would play whom?

Wild Target

Nice cast, shame about the script. Wild Target is an average hit, but Nighy's aim is as sharp as ever. Worryingly enjoyable.


"You like me so much more than you think you do". Elegantly awkward and emotionally honest, Greenberg sticks with you for hours.

Most Exciting Film of the Summer?

Latest Trailers

Director: Christopher Nolan
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Ken Watanabe, Cillian Murphy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Michael Caine
Certificate: 12A

So it's a masterpiece. Right? Right. Ok, that's the hype dealt with - the director easily meets it. It's hard to think of many film-makers who could pull off a twisting tale of dreams-within-dreams. It's even harder to name people who would think to do it in the first place. Inception is a bold concept, deftly woven into a thrilling tale, and cleverly wrapped up as a summer blockbuster. It succeeds on every one of those levels.

Oh, Leo. Leo Leo Leo. Leo in a tux. Leo out of a tux. I saw everything last night in Leicester Square. Except for that last part. And the fact that I was busy watching The A-Team next door. But our men were filming events as the stars stepped out in London for the premiere of Christopher Nolan's Inception.

The mind-bending sci-fi thriller, which is out in cinemas next Friday (trailers over here), dazzled the capital with its stunning visuals and wonderful cast. But it was the latter on show outside that won over the crowds, who gathered just to get a glimpse of Leonardo in a suit. And out of it too. (NOTE: That bit still didn't happen.)

The sexy Joseph Gordon Levitt, Ellen Page, Michael Caine, Tom Hardy, Marion Cotillard, Ken Watanabe and Cillian Murphy joined the director and DiCaprio to walk up the Inception-style grey carpet and saunter into the packed cinema. But hey, who wants to just read a list of names when you can watch our lovely video? It even comes complete with the World's Greatest Voice-Over Man.

And if that taste of Inception isn't enough for you - let's face it, it'll never be enough until you've seen the film at least five times - you can still drool over the pretty photos. Because nothing says drooling fanboy like a bunch of glossy pictures. Go on, keep reading for both of them. You know you love it.

UPDATE: Third Inception Trailer Online!

"Mr Cobb has a job offer he would like to discuss with you..."

It sounds innocent enough, especially when Michael Caine says it in the third (and presumably final) Inception trailer. But this is no ordinary occupation - Mr Cobb is a guy who steals secrets. From other people's minds. Using his magic dream machine briefcase, he gets inside your dreams and nicks information from your brain. 

It's a pretty damn nifty concept for a post-Matrix world, where buildings can collapse in on themselves, people can hover all over the place, and corridors twist and turn at a brain-melting speed. Cobb (Di Caprio) may have a tragic wife-related past to deal with, but Christopher Nolan's latest is not short of spectacle.

And the latest trailer is clear proof of that. Dazzling visuals and an impressive-looking cast are all on display here, with the first real public plot outline from Nolan's team - if you think I just spoiled the plot, go watch the video. If you already read our previous Inception updates, go watch the video. And if you've never heard of The Dark Knight's director, go watch the flipping video.

It was online over at the Inception viral site, Mind Crime, hidden inside the stage 2 game (walk around, find a movie theatre, walk in and hit space bar). But now, for the lazy fans, you can read on for the full high quality video.

Hold onto your briefcases, people. This is most likely the movie of the summer. If not the whole year.

Inception's IMAX Poster

If you didn't want to see Inception at an IMAX cinema, you do now.

Yes, this is the latest IMAX-ified poster for Christopher Nolan's mind-bending thriller thing, which appeared over at Yahoo! Movies. You can tell how crazy it's going to be by the number of people standing on the ceiling - that is, all of them. They're also all carrying briefcases or guns. Or briefcases with guns. Or briefcases with guns in them. Or -- you get the idea.

More interestingly, we also get what might be our first glimpse of Marion Cotillard in full-on Inception mode, showcasing balance skillz that rival those of Leo, Ken Watanabe, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Ellen Page (she's running upside down!).

Inception will twist your brain into tiny pieces in July. Excited? I couldn't possible comment. Mainly because I'm too busy sticking this poster to the outside of my house.
