The Kids Are All Right

The kids aren't just all right, they're great. This is amusing, honest stuff. With lesbians.

Burke & Hare

More fun than having your leg chopped off, Burke & Hare is about as deep and historically accurate as an ipod.

Tron Night: The Verdict

The verdict on Tron Legacy's 23-minute preview. Hint: it looks awesome.

Despicable Me

Likeable fun with a lazy conclusion, Despicable Me shoots for the moon, steals it, then lets it go again. Above average, but below Pixar.

Best Movie Pumpkins

With Halloween scaring kids across the country, here are the best film-themed carvings to stick in your window.

London Film Festival

All the reviews and interviews you could possibly want from this year's LFF. Plus some stuff about toilets.

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Ga'Hoole

An epic adventure of fluffy, George Lucas proportions. Derivative, but thrilling.

The Social Network

A convincing case for a 21st Century Charles Foster Kane, The Social Network is a courtroom drama of petty politics and understated genius.

LFF Toilet Quiz

The official BFI LFF Toilet Quiz! Spot the bog, name the cinema. Simple.

Brief Encounters: The Social Network

The cast and Aaron Sorkin chat about Facebook, Faust and summing up a generation.

The Death and Life of Charlie St Cloud

A slushy piece of drivel that should drop the third and fourth word of its title.

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

Money Never Sleeps isn't the wake up call it wants to be, but it's a safe bet more than a bail-out.

LFF: 127 Hours Print E-mail

Director: Danny Boyle
Cast: James Franco

How do you follow up an Oscar for Best Film? Chop James Franco's arm off is how. 127 Hours is the true story of climber Aaron Ralston (Franco), who enjoyed hopping around Utah canyons in 2003 until he found himself the wrong side of a massive rock.

Director: Greg Araki
Cast: Thomas Dekker, Haley Bennett, Chris Zylka, Roxane Mesquida, Juno Temple

"What the Jesus?" "It's nuttier than squirrel shit!" That's how young people talk in movies. You can tell because they sound cool. Smith (Dekker) is a young person. He talks like that. He sounds cool. He's also gay. And has an uber long fringe. Which of course means that he sleeps with a lot of people.

Directors: Henry Joost, Ariel Schulman

When people first heard of a Facebook movie, this is the kind of thing they imagined instead of The Social Network. But even they couldn't have expected such an unsettling and poignant piece of cinema.

Director: Sofia Coppola
Cast: Stephen Dorff, Elle Fanning

Johnny (Dorff) is living the life of a Hollywood actor at full speed. But in between the booze, the parties and the endless sex, he's running on empty. He spends his ageing existence driving round and round in circles going nowhere. Literally. At least five times. Then Cleo (Fanning) enters his cluttered hotel room and things start to change gear.

Director: Jalmari Helander
Cast: Onni Tommila, Jorma Tommila, Per Christian Ellefsen, Tommi Korpela, Rauno Juvonen

People in Finland are weird. They live in small houses in the middle of the mountains and chop up pigs for a living. Then, when footprints appear on their rooftop and dead bodies turn up, their children automatically presume it's Santa Claus.

LFF: Howl Print E-mail

Directors: Robert Epstein, Jeffrey Friedman
Cast: James Franco, Jon Hamm, David Strathairn

"You can't turn poetry into prose." That's what said of attempts to censor and rewrite Allen Ginsberg's Howl upon its publication. But that hasn't stopped Robert Epstein and Jeffrey Friedman adapting it into a movie. Taking on the controversy surrounding Howl's lewd content, they follow a court case debating the legitimacy of it's label as Literature. No prizes for guessing who wins that argument.

Director: Lisa Cholodenko
Cast: Annette Bening, Julianne Moore, Mark Ruffalo, Josh Hutcherson, Mia Wasikowska

It's not easy being a lesbian. Especially when you're raising a family of sperm-donated kids. Jules (Moore) is feeling the strain of a long marriage, caught between the control-freak clutches of Nick (Bening) and the easygoing sexiness of Mark Ruffalo. Naturally, things soon go up the proverbial creek without a dildo.
