Christopher Nolan wants better film preservation

Christopher Nolan is perhaps the number one most vocal supported for the continued use of film - both as a medium on which to shoot and display movies. He's shot all of his movies on film and he continues to advocate for IMAX as a higher qu...

Academy might return to five Best Picture nominees

Once upon a time, The Dark Knight was released, and when it didn't get an Oscar nod for Best Picture, the people were upset. "We have failed you," said the Oscars, "from now on, there shall be not five, but ten nominations! Nothing sha...

Jessie Usher to star in Independence Day 2

First things first: yes, there is still an Independence Day 2. That's a movie that is actually going to exist, not just one that will be talked about in rumours and hypotheticals. I know. I'm scared too. Will Smith's not going to deign the ...

Review: Focus

I love a good con movie. From The Sting to Ocean’s Eleven to Catch Me If You Can, the genre is as formulaic as it is entertaining. The secret to its success is a combination of familiar warmth and detached unpredictability: everyone...

RIP Leonard Nimoy (1931-2015)

Earlier today, news broke that Leonard Nimoy had passed away at the age of 83.  It's hard to put into words the personal importance of Nimoy's work. Star Trek wasn't just the show I watched as a child, it was my inspiration. It ta...

Flix For Short: The Boy Who Couldn't Sleep And Never Had To

Hey, I really like this. Essentially a proof of concept short from writer DC Pierson and director Dan Eckman (based on Pierson's novel), it's the story of teenage best friends who get into all sorts of trouble when one of them reveals...

Shaun the Sheep Review photo

Review: Shaun The Sheep

It's hard to believe that Shaun The Sheep is only Aardman's fourth stop motion feature film. The studio initially made its name in the UK with short films in the 70s and 80s such as Creature Comforts, but it was with the release of the fi...

Mission: Impossible 5's ending yet to be accepted

The best thing about the Mission: Impossible franchise is how each movie, regardless of quality, has been a unique expression of style from each of its various directors. Christopher McQuarrie is the latest in a series of interesting choice...

E.L. James wants control over next Fifty Shades screenplay

Fifty Shades Of Grey was a movie without a country. Sam Taylor-Johnson attempted to craft a feminist subversion out of the novel's infamous tale of abuse, whereas E.L. James wanted her work to be faithfully adapted, and clashed repeatedly d...

First Victoria trailer, a true one shot action movie

From Hitchcock's Rope in 1948 to Birdman, Alejandro González Iñárritu's movie up for Best Picture this Sunday, and everywhere in between, filmmakers have been consistently playing with the idea of a movie wit...

Chris Nolan and Rian Johnson discuss Interstellar

I wasn't a massive fan of Interstellar, with its insistence on hard sci-fi not meshing ultimately undermining the eventual shift to thematically resonant fantasy, but as a sci-fi film with ambition, I still care about it deeply. So, much to...

Severus Snape and the recut of the Harry Potter movies

I love fan edits. I'm a strong believer in the idea that a work of art does not become rigid and untouchable when released, but remains alive and malleable for as long as we allow it to be. They're always messy, and often incompetent, but ...
