    Film Preview: Laurence Anyways 1

    Laurence Anyways is a film about love

    4:20 PM — You may or may not have already heard about the third feature from Quebec's rising director Xavier Dolan about the effect of being trans on a heterosexual relationship.

    Preview: Sundance London

    4:07 PM — This month marks the inaugural edition of a British offshoot of one of the world's best film festivals. Far from a profit-inspired afterthought, the features set to be shown provide truly compelling reasons to get yourself a ticket, even if you don't live in the capital. 

  • Preview: Titanic 3D 2

    Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio cling to each other

    3:36 PM — The freezing waters of the Atlantic filled with desperate people. Hypothermia everywhere. Death fast approaching. Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio cling to each other for dear life, knowing there's little chance they will both survive the night ahead. James Cameron's Titanic is a three-hour epic of extreme sentimentality. But this kind of fare has made for some of the most memorable moments cinema goers have ever experienced, and in the case of the film retelling of the most famous ship sinking ever there's no denying it's quite an entertaining watch. Just don't tell anyone we said so.

    Film Review: Brothers 4

    Jake Gyllenhaal stars in Brothers

    12:12 AM — Brokeback Mountain star Jake Gyllenhaal appears in Brothers, the latest in a line of recent war movies that attempt to look into the psyche of soldiers as well as the effect that their absence, experiences and changed personas have on their families. However, the difference here is that this is just one facet of an incredibly complex film that deals with a multitude of themes.

  • Film Review: All About Steve

    Sandra Bullock stars in All about Steve

    12:05 AM — This loopy comedy caper about a nerdy crossword creator with a penchant for red cowboy boots will divide the audience firmly in two: you're either going to love it or hate it. Sandra Bullock dusts off her romantic comedy queen tiara and once again takes the helm of a fast-moving movie with throwaway one-liners and little resonance. If you're a rom-com sceptic at least you can rest assured that the experience will leave you almost as soon as you leave the cinema. If however, you're a fan of Bullock's quirky comedic heroines then you'll be booking a ticket for a second viewing.

  • Film Review: The Road

    The Road is out now

    12:02 AM — This month heralds the much-anticipated release of The Road. This adaptation of the seminal book by Cormac McCarthy certainly has plenty to live up to with the cult following of the novel leading to the usual poor expectations of the movie version. However, it appears that the critics will be silenced as John Hillcoat has successfully recreated the post-apocalyptic world that was so vividly, if sparingly, portrayed by McCarthy.

    Film Review: It’s Complicated

    Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin

    11:59 PM — It sure is complicated. This comedy love triangle comes from perhaps the best female-perspective comedy director in the business: Nancy Meyers. With an acclaimed CV of hits including The Holiday; What Women Want; and Something's Gotta Give, to her name you know you're in safe hands when you sit down to watch her latest Hollywood blockbuster offering. The cast list is nothing to be sneered at either as the Meyers name manages to snare the likes of Meryl Streep and Alec Baldwin onto the film set. The results speak for themselves and it proves that if you want to make waves in a genre that is rarely taken too seriously by serious film buffs then the least you can do is call in the acting cavalry.
