The Boat That Rocked

A film of two halves: one spent waiting to laugh, the other not laughing.

Monsters vs Aliens

Monsters! Aliens! Monsters! Awesome.

A Monster Smash

The ultimate showdown of ultimate destiny? You bet it is!


It's a load of old hooey, but Knowing carries its concept with conviction; gripping and portentous, it's a baptism by fire for dubious cinemagoers.

I'm Brian and So's Me Wife!

Michael Sheen - Britain's most prolific fraudster. Is your identity safe?

The Damned United

Another character-driven masterpiece from Morgan and Michael. Damned good.


A fun, romantic, old-school caper. They caper here, they caper there. Sometimes, they caper so much their clothes fall off.

Lesbian Vampire Killers

Comedy sound effects and a sword shaped like a thingy? This is a textbook example of polishing a turd.

Marley and Me

Marley and Me's saccharine story is low on laughs and high on sugar. Bring a vat of tissues. And some insulin.


Zack "the visionary director of 300" Snyder's epic achievement is an awe-inspiring spectacle...

The Young Victoria

Glossy and gorgeous, Britain's longest-serving monarch makes for a winning romance. God save the Queen. And all that.

Gran Torino

Eastwood's star performance rescues this cliched script: forget Dirty Harry, this is racist Clint. And he's milking it for every last drop.


An energetic debut from a British director, Hush is a thrilling tale of cars, girls and posters that go up in toilets. Gripping stuff.


Cute and lively, but lacking Pixar's spark: this is The Truman Show for the High School Musical generation.


Which vampire would you want living next door?

Monsters are awesome. Who doesn’t love Godzilla, the original man-in-a-muppet Japanese destroyer? Or that pulsating blobby thing from The Blob? Well, many 5 year old kids, for a start. They’ve never seen these classics – unless they had one weird upbringing. So this tribute to trashy terrors shouldn’t really appeal to them. But oh boy, it does.

My name’s Richard Curtis and I’m a pop addict – or, at least, that’s what we’re led to believe from his latest effort, The Boat That Rocked. He’s clearly made a huge effort in recreating his favourite era of illicit vinyl and pirate radio. But it’s not nearly as much as it takes to watch it.

With Dreamworks' Monsters vs Aliens stomping into cinemas, kicking up the dust of B-Movies past, it's hard not to get a little nostalgic for history's hairiest bad guys... Laced with trash and coated in cliche, they might have been cheesy, but who doesn't get frightened by a bit of brie? Especially when it's got Sharp Pointy Teeth and drools over your face.

But then the question arises: who was the best of the beasts? Then other questions join the frenzy. Questions like: Are they better when they're funny or scary? Colour or black-and-white? Small or big? Hairy or slimy? Why didn't Frankenstein have a small maggot sidekick?

And so, with a sentimental tear in our eyes we bring you the Ultimate Monster/Alien Showdown of All Time. Which of Hollywood's horrors will top the tournament and be crowned King of Critters? Enough pre-amble, let the bloodbath BEGIN.

Charismatic, arrogant, outspoken, Brian Clough is arguably one of England’s greatest football managers. His achievements with Derby and then Nottingham Forest remain, in many respects, unsurpassed. The Damned United is a partially fictionalised account of Brian Clough’s next move: a catastrophic 44 day stint at Leeds United.

Born in Newport, allegedly of human parents, Michael Sheen is a chameleon, seemingly able to take on the appearance, voice and mannerisms of anyone. Is your identity safe?

The only way to ensure your face, hair and voice aren't cloned is to learn how this man works. For your own protection and safety, here's a profile (a CRB, if you will) of Britain's most prolific fraudster...
