Brad Pitt could soon hold the ignominy of presiding over the biggest flop in film history. World War Z, which originally had a budget of $170million, but has now ballooned to a reported $400million. That is a huge $100million more than Pirates of The Caribbean: At World's End, which is currently the most expensive film ever made.

Smartphones at Gigs? Now That's Dumb

Using your smartphone while you're at any event, you're not just ruining it for others, you're ruining it for yourself. That moment where you check your email, send a text, take a photo, make a call, you're giving in to your inability to concentrate for more than a moment.

If LFF is the Glastonbury of film festivals, then Sundance London is becoming the Latitude or Bestival. It is more intimate, cosy and it feels uniquely special. It provides an important distillation of the best of the independent scene and deserves to remain an annual event in the coming years.

Why are the French So Good at Horror Films?

Harriet Williamson

Out of the seething mass of horror films I have both endured and absorbed over the last four years, it is the French titles that stand out most in my mind. They refuse to be ignored. They are visceral, shocking and innovative and they stay with me long after the final credits are over.

While it has its problems, Black's Iron Man 3 is smart, funny and consistently entertaining, and serves as a reminder of just how fun blockbuster cinema can be when in the right hands.

Due to the advent of home video technology coinciding with a time of mass unemployment in the UK, many independent retailers began to spring up selling videos, which at the time did not have age restrictions and were not required to be classified by the BBFC.

Alice Charles

Directed by Susanne Bier, who shares a writing credit with Anders Thomas Jensen, this is a story about one woman's emotional awakening, a Norwegian Shirley Valentine if you like. It's not the story as it's also about a middle-aged man coming to terms with the death of his wife.

Film Review: Oblivion

Jack Pelling | Posted 12.06.2013 | UK Entertainment
Jack Pelling

Oblivion is an insultingly cynical, derivative and lazy clot of a film with clear aspirations for mediocrity; a meritless exercise in propheteering with a genuine contempt for its audience.

WE WENT TO WAR by Michael Grigsby and Rebekah Tolley

Rebekah Tolley

Our journey with WE WENT TO WAR started on a rainy afternoon in London in December 2007. In between developing project ideas with Michael, I was slowly making my way through his extraordinary five decade back catalogue as one Britain's great documentary filmmakers. Today it was 'I Was a Soldier' (1970), possibly the very first sustained treatment about soldiers coming home from the frontlines of Vietnam.

Citizen Ebert

India Ross | Posted 04.06.2013 | UK Entertainment
India Ross

A critic for the Chicago Sun-Times for forty-six years, the Ebert era has bracketed the better half of film history. Unlike the fanatical doctrines of Pauline Kael, the humility of his observations broke through the cultural feudalism of cinema snobbery to land right aboard the brains and the breakfast tables of the American family. With syndication in more than 200 national newspapers, his voice of easy reason trickled from Chicago to Hollywood.

Trance - Review

Although the film is a little untamed and features some baffling choices in terms of story, there is a lot within Trance to enjoy. Danny Boyle's stylish direction helps to smooth over the mistakes within the screenplay and results in a gripping, interesting and hypnotic crime movie that for the most part keeps the audience guessing.

Film Review: Trance

This mind-bending, psychological-thriller is a far cry from sky-diving monarchs and jitterbugging nurses, but Boyle hasn't completly reined in his penchant for spectacle.

Hollywood's Not in the Mood for Sex and I Blame the Pirates

Richard Taylor | Posted 27.05.2013 | UK Entertainment
Richard Taylor

It was reported by The Telegraph recently that 'sex has been all but eradicated from Hollywood scripts over the past 18 months'. Apparently sex scenes are being shunned in favour of dazzling special effects and tellingly, only two films containing sex and nudity made the box office top ten in the UK last year. So what is the reason for Hollywood's languishing libido?

In The House, which picked up the top award at last year's San Sebastian Film Festival, is a jet black, yet oddly playful comedy about a gifted teenage writer named Claude (Ernst Umhauer), who is taken under the wing of his bored French teacher, M. Germain (Fabrice Luchini).

A thinly-veiled Hangover rehash with fewer jokes and fewer interesting characters,  21 & Over aims for outrageous campus comedy, but finds itself enrolled in the remedial class.

British Indie Filmmaker Shares Roots, His Journey and Debut Film

Gregory G. Allen

There is nothing like social media that brings people together from different continents. Being an author about adversity and diversity, I was drawn to the story of indie filmmaker Marcus Markou from the United Kingdom. A man with a similar background to myself in the arts, I loved reading his blog about what he has gone through to get his film "Papadopoulos & Sons" made and into theaters for people to see it.

The Profumo Affair: The Making of 'Scandal'

I heard Mandy Rice-Davies on the BBC this week. She sounds in good shape. She's the survivor. Today is the 50th anniversary of the day when Conservative MP and secretary of state for war John Profumo told the House of Commons that there was "no impropriety whatever" in his relationship with Christine Keeler, a watershed moment in what we now call 'The Profumo Affair'.
