Why It's Okay to Be Excited About Michael Bay's 'Ninja Turtles'

Rob Leane | Posted 29.05.2014 | UK Entertainment
Rob Leane

Before the trailer for the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie dropped, I was as sceptical as anyone. Michael Bay, this time as a producer, takes another 90s kids' beloved property and repeatedly, heartlessly milks it for cash, we all know the drill. Or do we?

Steve McQueen, one of the world's greatest actors and the man who brought the Le Mans 24 Hours to the silver screen, would have been 84 today. The ...

Film Review: Non- Stop

Carina Maggar | Posted 19.05.2014 | UK Entertainment
Carina Maggar

Non-Stop is a hybrid of Flight Plan, meets Red Eye, meets Snakes on a Plane, and it isn't nearly as good as any of those. As usual, Liam Neeson takes on the role of a troubled man who drinks far too much and has a constant pained look on his face (similar to that of constipation I'd say).

'Infidel - The Musical' Or the Valentines Day That Changed My Life

Arvind Ethan David | Posted 18.05.2014 | UK Comedy
Arvind Ethan David

THE INFIDEL was an IMPOSSIBLY difficult film to get financed. It was the hardest I have ever worked on, as literally every studio, financier, and sales agent in town passed on it at least once, and several of them, just to be sure, did so multiple times. The reasons given were various and inconsistent, but lurking behind them all we detected the same issue: a vague but powerful fear of a broad comedy about Muslims and Jews.

Katee has become one of the most recognisable actresses of the escapist genre. As feisty pilot Kara 'Starbuck' Thrace, she helped turn the revamped Battlestar Galactica into one of the most acclaimed dramas of the Noughties...

Review: The Lego Movie (2014)

Thomas Patrick | Posted 28.04.2014 | UK Entertainment
Thomas Patrick

A film titled The Lego Movie, which was based on the ultra-popular Danish multi-purpose bricks could so easily have been a glorified advert. In many ways it is, and in so many other ways it's much more.

If The Trailer For 'Gravity' Was Honest

We are, here at Huffington Post UK Comedy, huge fans of the Screen Junkies team. But never more so than right now - as the Oscar-nominated, BAFTA-winn...

The Academy Awards are closing up on us... it's time to bring on the glamour. February is indeed preparation month as talent gear up to look their sharpest for their arrival at Hollywood's Kodak theatre for the March 2nd event.

Don't Reject the Movie Remake, Sometimes It's Worth it

The Conversation UK | Posted 06.04.2014 | UK Entertainment
The Conversation UK

Should we worry about these remakes, or just enjoy the opportunity to see new versions of some of our favourite stories? If we listen to the vast majority of film critics, it seems we should be rather more than worried.

One of my New Year's Day rituals is to go through all the films I saw in cinema the previous year and compiling a list of top 10 titles. Yes, I realise I'm a bit late posting this, but here are my favourite films from 2013:

'Frozen' Is Almost Perfect, Except for These Two Things...

Mia Freedman | Posted 23.03.2014 | UK Entertainment
Mia Freedman

Brave's glorious Princess Merida walked that talk by rejecting the idea that a bunch of strangers should compete with each other to marry her. Instead, she competed with them to win her independence. Which she did. Go Merida. That's some impressive feminist ideology right there.

The Magic of a Film Club

I help run a film club; every second Thursday we show a film to a small audience of around 20 - 25 people. We put it on during the day so inevitably the audience is mostly made up of older people.

American Hustle - The Review

Roger Crow | Posted 09.03.2014 | UK Entertainment

I liked David O Russell's latest movie. Like Ridley Scott's similar American Gangster, it was sprawling, ambitious and featured a superb cast amid a 1970s setting.

The Most Disappointing Films of 2013

There were plenty of bombs, turkeys and over-rated smashes which either left me cross or emulating an indifferent Frenchman winning first prize in a 'So What?' charades contest.

In the near future, Joaquin Phoenix plays nebbish writer Theodore Twombly, who works for a website which sends "beautiful, handwritten" letters to order. After a bad break-up, he now lives alone and has a social life that's on the critical list.

The Hobbit 2 Review: Smaug is Bored and I Am Desolated

Having sat through the enormous letdown that is The Hobbit 2, I feel like I have breathed the dwarves' air; lived part of their life and was happy to have done so... for about two hours.

Sequels, Sequels, Straight-To-DVD Sequels...

For no other reason other than I'm a cinematic masochist, I suggest to my friend Benno we should watch a brace of seemingly unnecessary sequels, to find out what makes them tick.

Goats, Not Bagginses, Are the Real Heroes of the Hobbit

Victoria Martindale | Posted 04.02.2014 | UK Entertainment
Victoria Martindale

Sold out! Performances of terminator tank, hang tough, hit and run, dog fight, whiplash and eliminator are instant sell outs. I'm not talking about tickets for a new series of Gladiators but the way animals are treated in some of the highest earning Hollywood blockbusters.

Film Review: Klown and the Patience Stone Are Must See Viewing

Clive Botting | Posted 03.02.2014 | UK Entertainment
Clive Botting

The Danes hit the headlines with 'The Killing', 'The Bridge' and 'Borgen'. They also do comedy. KLOWN is a wonderfully outrageous comedy gem with assured performances and a finale of all time. It'll linger with you and you'll certainly chuckle after you leave the cinema.

They're Remaking Road House, but Have They Seen Road House 2? I Have

Ben Falk | Posted 26.01.2014 | UK Entertainment
Ben Falk

I was scouring the Internet some time ago and found out they'd made a sequel to Road House. I'm not sure why. The original came out in 1989, starred Patrick Swayze playing a bouncer in a hick bar and has been routinely included on "enjoyably bad" film lists ever since.
