    A watered-down adaptation that hides coyly under the sheets, 'Fifty Shades of Grey' is full of all sorts of sex, but it's still a hopelessly softcore erotic drama that fails to be even a fraction as titillating as the EL James books that inspired ...

    You have to hand it to Lana and Andy Wachowski: they don’t do things by halves. Fresh from blending dystopian sci-fi, period drama, posh-boy cannibalism and just about everything else under the sun in the gloriously insane ‘Cloud Atlas’, they’ve t...

    ‘Most of the successful people in Hollywood are failures as human beings.’ So said Marlon Brando. But what happens when their 15 minutes are up? It’s not like failure suddenly transforms former mega-celebs into humble human beings who can pick up ...

    If you go down to the woods today… you’ll find A-listers dressed like ‘Game of Thrones’ extras belting out showtunes. ‘Into the Woods’, the 1987 fairytale mash-up musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, has fallen under Disney’s spell, getti...
