JJ Abrams

So I’m not against having information out there, but I’m thrilled I didn’t know what Skyfall was when I saw it. I’m thrilled that I didn’t know who M actually was at the end. They were great things in that movie because they ended up happening as the movie intended. I’d love it if we can allow people, at least for the first week, to go see Star Trek and not feel like ‘yeah I know that’. Just have a little bit of surprise. … Continue readingJJ Abrams

The Stars of Argo

That’s what’s great about art, it’s so subjective. Ultimately it’s the judgment of the people that will say whether or not something’s good. So I can sit here and say I love Argo, I think it has a lot to say and it’s very effective, but my opinion on that isn’t really important. The opinions that counts will be the people who either go to see it or don’t. … Continue readingThe Stars of Argo

The Dark Knight Rises

The cinema gave the awesome scope of Gotham city and the world beyond a vibrant new life, drawing you deeply into Nolan’s world. And the ground-shaking sound system bought every detail to life, from the thrumming rotors of Batman’s new air vehicle (The Bat) to the metallic musicality of Bane’s voice (Tom Hardy), every word dripping with malice and violence. … Continue readingThe Dark Knight Rises

One by one the stars of Marvel’s The Avengers arrived and made their way down, waving to screaming fans and enduring the barrage of media scrutiny about their clothes, the roles, the future of the franchise and more. … Continue readingThe Cast of The Avengers

Iron Man

But a funny thing happens about halfway through the film. You realise that — Like Hulk — you haven’t seen a lot of Iron Man mayhem. And the reason is because (gasp!) you genuinely do like the characters, and their stories are as interesting as the obligatory action. … Continue readingIron Man

Sunshine

And we’re not talking about the world of the Millenium Falcon or Enterprise here, either. We’re talking about the real world where space travel is a dark, claustrophobic pursuit, pressure searing the nerves as surely as the people you’re stuck with for months on end. … Continue readingSunshine

Danny Boyle

Each film’s a two or three year process. You’re constantly reading and trying to catch up with the material but that’s a good place to be because you’re a bit uncertain at times. You have to do it and you have to learn how to do it and I love that process. … Continue readingDanny Boyle
