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.

Forget the leaked version yesterday - the official teaser trailer for Let Me In is now online. And it looks quite good. Considering.

Considering this is a remake of 2009's best film, Let the Right One In. Considering that it's another Americanised take on a great foreign movie. Considering that no-one wanted this film to happen.

And yet there's something in the trailer for Matt Reeves' Let Me In that works. The location feels right, the casting is spot on (Kodi Smitt McPhee and Chloe Moretz look to be sinking their teeth into their parts), even the music sort of fits. 

From the looks of things, the tale will remain pretty much identical, with young outcast Owen meeting blood-sucker Abby on his local housing estate. Only to discover she's been his age for a long time. As their awkward relationship blossoms, things get darker and chillier, building up to one hell of a climax.

Tomas Alfredson he ain't, but Matt Reeves has clearly been doing his homework - lots of the shots here look the same as the original. Whether that makes it more pointless or not is perhaps debatable, but (and I'm surprised to be saying this) Let Me In could well be one of those faithful remakes that actually works. They do exist, after all. Remember Insomnia? Or The Departed?

Let Me In is released in October. Check out the trailer in our videos section, or read on for the full video.

It looks adequate, and that's about the best I can say. At least it's not some horrible McG re-imagining, but considering how similar the shots and atmosphere appear to be to the original (which I agree was THE best movie of the year) it just raises the whole "why bother?" question further. Matt Reeves hasn't pissed all over it (which is great - Go Matt!) but he hasn't so much as done his homework as copied notes off a class-mate and made a few changes so the teacher doesn't notice.

I'm at a loss as to why Hollywood feels the need to do this. If they think language is a problem, do an American voice-over. When Miyazaki releases a film it isn't subsequently re-made in CGI to please American audiences.
