The Many Faces Of Lee Byung-hun

This week sees the premiere of Terminator Genisys, and with it the honoring of a not-so-nice Hollywood tradition: that of taking one of the most charismatic Asian stars there is, and giving him/her just a few minutes of screentime (and... More »

Destroy All Monsters: It's All Fan Fiction Now

Next year will be the return of the Harry Potter universe in a big way: as if the kickoff of the new trilogy, Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them (written by author J.K. Rowling herself, and directed by 4-time... More »

Destroy All Monsters: James Horner And The Music Of Inspiration And Change

Film composer James Horner died earlier this week, as we've previously reported. I'm scarcely qualified to eulogize him, and others have done so elsewhere with great depth and insight. Tuesday morning, for my part, was a terrible process of remembering... More »

Destroy All Monsters: It's A JURASSIC WORLD, And Apparently I Don't Live There Any More

It's a potent image, as others have noted: a dangling great white shark, purpose-built to remind us of Jaws, being lazily consumed by a gargantuan CGI mosasaur, leaping out of the water at Jurassic World in front of a stadium... More »

Destroy All Monsters: Wane Of THRONES

There have only been two extraordinary sequences on Game Of Thrones this season (with one episode remaining), and they've happened in the last two weeks: the massive and surprising battle at Hardhome in episode 8, and the smooth and unsurprising... More »

The Many Faces Of Jason Statham

Paul Feig's comedy Spy is out in cinemas, and getting lots of acclaim, also, perhaps surprisingly, from critics. Our Pierce Conran even said it may stake an early claim to being the summer's best comedy. And while it is of... More »

Destroy All Monsters: EX MACHINA And Bro Culture

One of the cleverest choices Alex Garland's Ex Machina makes is in its presentation of tech magnate / robot inventor Nathan (Oscar Isaac). He is such a douche. The movie isn't even subtle about it. There isn't a moment Nathan... More »

The Many Faces Of Bill Murray

This week Cameron Crow's Aloha premieres, with - if nothing else - a stellar cast. Our Jim Tudor wasn't kind to the film, but note that in his review, he spent no vitriol on any of the actors. And in... More »

70s Rewind: EARTHQUAKE, My Favorite Disaster Porn

Before I knew anything about human sexuality, I had become far too intimate with disaster porn. That's because I grew up in the 1970s, when disaster movies fornicated freely with all-star casts and state-of-the-art special effects to deliver orgasms of... More »

Destroy All Monsters: The Problem With The TOMORROWLAND Thesis

I enjoyed Tomorrowland. There was a joy about the way Brad Bird shot the film that reminded me of early Spielberg, and if the whole thing ends up turning on the audience's willingness to believe that George Clooney has harboured... More »

The Many Faces Of Vincent Price

This coming week in May, horror legend Vincent Price would have become 104 years old, had he not died 21 years ago. A great actor in his own right, he was also blessed with one of the most beautifully menacing... More »

Destroy All Monsters: All We Have Are Our Bodies On FURY ROAD

In Mad Max: Fury Road, we get the great existentialist Western of our time. Save one character murmuring prayers in one shot to anyone who will listen, God is not in evidence. The movie is entirely bound up in human... More »

Learning From The Masters Of Cinema: Peter Bogdanovich's PAPER MOON

Perhaps best known as the film for which a ten-year-old Tatum O'Neal won herself a Best Supporting Actress Academy Award, Peter Bogdanovich's Paper Moon is a beautifully constructed Depression-era caper brimming with heart and powered by a pair of flawless... More »

The Many Faces Of Charlize Theron

Mad Max: Fury Road is putting the pedal to the metal in cinemas worldwide, and two things have become apparent. One: reviews so far are almost ridiculously positive. Two: everyone agrees Charlize Theron is awesome. Thing number two shouldn't come... More »

The Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad Worlds of MAD MAX: FURY ROAD

What will the future look like? In Mad Max: Fury Road, director George Miller and his fabulous team conjure up strikingly distinct landscapes for what is, in essence, a chase movie. Yet it's a chase movie with great empathy for... More »
