I'm Still Here

Committed and convincing, I'm Still Here is a brave and unusual piece of cinema. Fascinating.

The Other Guys

There are flashes of brilliance in this frantic Ferrell vehicle. The Other Guys never shoots to kill, but it frequently finds your funny bone.

Tamara Drewe

Intelligently titillating, Tamara Drewe hides its smarts under a hedgerow of filth. Unassuming, undeniably fun.

Going the Distance

Drew and Justin make sparks fly in this natural, likeable movie. Unlike most rom-coms this year, Going the Distance is worth making the trip to see.


Mumblecore meets mainstream without making a masterpiece. Painful and heartfelt but rarely funny, Cyrus is good but it's no Greenberg.

On the Carpet: Going the Distance

We run amok at the premiere with Justin Long and Drew Barrymore...

The Runaways

A run-of-the-mill rock biopic elevated by its quick script and great cast. Forget mopey Bella: Kristen Stewart rocks.

The Last Exorcism

The Last Exorcism blends belief, doubt and humour to produce some seriously scary cinema. Until the dubious ending.

An Education: Cinema's Top Syllabus

With kids back to school and education funding cut, what's the best way to educate your child? Cinema.

The Switch

Ill-conceived but entertaining, the year's second sperm donor rom-com leaves no embarrassing stains.

Scott Pilgrim vs the World

Mature, childish and one of the most energetic things ever put on celluloid, Scott Pilgrim speaks to its audience. It says words like: Love. Life. Nintendo. And Canada.

A Link to the Past

Loved Scott Pilgrim's retro soundtrack? Here's Hollywood's best music, 8-bit Nintendo style.

The Hole 3D

A proper horror for kids big and small, The Hole is a great relief after The Human Centipede. Friendly fun to freak out the hole (ahem) family.

500 Days of Summer - Sort of Print E-mail
Written by Ivan Radford

Right in the middle of making 500 Days of Summer, Marc Webb clearly had twitchy fingers. A fever, if you will. And the only thing that could cure that fever? Cowbell. In the absence of any cowbell, he instead directed this wonderful music video for She & Him's "Why Do You Let Me Stay Here?"

It has Zooey Deschanel dancing with Joseph Gordon-Levitt across a deserted bank's floor - making up for her absence in the film's lovely music number (where Joseph dances up the street, post-sex with Summer, in a fit of exuberant, unadulterated joy). Speaking of which...

Well, the BFI IMAX was packed to the rafters (and those rafters are very high, folks) with fans eager to see the epic imagination of James Cameron, no doubt soon to be crowned King of 3-D. But what can be gleaned from 15 minutes of footage? Can you really get a sense of what might unfold in a few months time? Probably not, but hey, let's give it a bash.

  Someone mugged you and stole your ticket?


  You don't know what Avatar is?

  James Cameron's sci-fi 3-D epic which hits the UK on 18th December,  

  is trailing 15 minutes of footage today up and down

  Movie history, you say? Yes it is.

Yes, yes, fanboys, I know: Tarantino is the greatest thing since that period of time before Reservoir Dogs came out. What was it called? Oh yes, the early 90s. But, after 17 years of this great thing, can anything top Inglourious Basterds? In short, yes. Yes it can.

Disorderland: Mental Illness Goes to the Movies Print E-mail
Written by Ivan Radford

It happens to all of us when watching a film. A axe-wielding guy shoves his head through a door, tattoos himself a fresh memory, or perhaps jumps up and down on Oprah's sofa. It happens and you think to yourself: "Yeah, he's crazy". No wonder, then, that cinema, every now and then, delves into its bag of disorders for a fresh take on mental illness. Conditions, after all, make for educational movies, raising awareness of social issues. Or they get cheap laughs, reducing symptoms to a series of cute eccentricities and gross-out gags. Either way, it helps to be able to see the forest for the Gump, to separate the tics from the truth, the science from the scientology. And so here's a brief flight back over Hollywood's cuckoo nest, reminding us what we've learnt from cinema's showcase of syndromes.
