  • The Grand Budapest Hotel

    We’re at the point now where, to a certain extent, we know what to expect from Wes Anderson. A charming screenplay, delightful production design, exquisitely composed cinamatography, and a barrel of actors we all wish we could take out for gin. The Grand Budapest Hotel delivers on all counts, as we knew it would, but…


  • Psychoanalysis… in 10 Easy Films

    Psychoanalysis has been tormenting society with its uncomfortable conclusions about your mum for the last century. It has had a huge influence on film, giving filmmakers the opportunity to explore the dark dank recesses of the human psyche while still entertaining with vague references to “penis envy” and “momma’s boy”.

It’s a real treat.

  • Top 10 Best Superhero Actors. EVER.

    This summer, you can hardly move for superhero films – and Green Lantern aside, we’ve seen most of the stars before. All the classic heroes have had a fair few outings with different faces by now, and if there’s one thing we hate about competition it’s not knowing who’s the WINNER. Feel like arbitrarily deciding whether Michael Keaton’s better at being grumpy than Christian Bale? Good.


  • Top 10 actors who should be cast as a superhero

    There’s no such thing as a predictable superhero casting – all the best Avengers, X-Men and otherwise pumped-up persons are unlikely characters who stumble into their crime-fighting alter egos just as unexpectedly as do the actors cast to play them. With so many A-list actors now boasting a brush with superheroism on their CVs, we’ve come up with a few new suggestions…
