  • Cheat Sheet: Daniel Craig

    Winner of Esquire Magazine’s coveted Best Dressed Male award in 2006 and achieving 7th in Elle Magazine’s 15 Sexiest Men poll in 2007, Daniel Craig is known for little else. What’s that? James Bond you say? Never heard of it.

  • Jack Falls

    Jack Falls is a stylish gangster thriller that, unfortunately, doesn’t live up to its promise. However, you can create your own drinking game by playing ‘spot the gangster movie-stereotype’.

  • Coming Soon: Kick-Ass in the UK

    Matthew Vaughn’s upcoming adaptation of the Mark Millar comic Kick-Ass has been picked up for UK distribution by Universal – which is damn good news as far as we’re cocerned. Vaughn, who previously produced Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, and directed 2004’s well-received Layer Cake, has been plagued with difficulties in finding a UK distributor for the film.
