Crossing Tmnt with a much-loved board game is a brilliant idea, right? Well, after this, Matt's wife might disagree...
Unpacking the Monopoly box, I started to get a bit excited. Granted, this is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Monopoly, a fair reason to be excited, but it was also because it had been so long since I last played the classic board game Monopoly and I couldn’t wait to get a game going. Monopoly is so fun.
Monopoly have been doing ‘themed’ sets for a while. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is very much the Park Lane of my favourite things, so this was one I was particularly keen to have a look at. It’s based on the current cartoon show from Nickelodeon, which is terrific and comes highly recommended.
Over Christmas, I sat down versus my wife for a game of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Monopoly (I know, »
Review Matt Edwards 14 Feb 2014 - 05:56
In writer/director Spike Jonze’s latest film Her, Joaquin Phoenix plays Theodore. With a divorce looming, Theodore finds himself forming an unexpected bond with new computer operating system OS1, who goes by Samantha (voiced by Scarlett Johansson). Samantha is programmed to learn, so she’s discovering the world as Theodore and her work out how their relationship could work. Running alongside his relationship, Theodore observes the difficulties his friend Amy is experiencing in hers.
As a plot synopsis, that doesn’t quite capture what happens in Her. It’s not really a film that lends itself to a neat summary, nor is it one you want to read much about before seeing. In fact, if you want a quick is it good or not, »

Update: Images now gone at request of lawyers acting for Paramount Pictures.
Update: We have had to remove these images at the request of legal people.
“Oooooh!” reads the transcription of our reaction to these images.
Last night, Comic Book Movie dot com broke these images of models, apparently from the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles movie. This is our first proper look at the character designs. A wonky-looking Halloween costume suggested to be based on the movie Turtles did leak last week, but we didn’t think you’d be interested in seeing it on account of it being a particularly rubbish Halloween costume.
Images Taken Down At The Request Of Paramount Pictures
These models certainly seem to fit with the design descriptions we’ve read. Obviously, we’re happy to be corrected if we’re wrong, but we think these are legitimate. »
• 2014 in film preview: sequels
Prepare yourself for the attack of the colons. A week ago, Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones came to a cinema near you, and in 2014 you can look forward to Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, 300: Rise of an Empire, X-Men: Days of Future Past, Transformers: Age of Extinction, Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Nativity 3: Dude, Where's My Donkey?, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, The Hobbit: There and Back Again – all of them episodes in ongoing franchises, and all of them with a colon in the middle of the title.
If that weren't dizzying enough, there are three more films released in January alone that use a colon, but which aren't part of a series. »

Interview Matt Edwards 3 Jan 2014 - 15:03
Let me get this right out of the way: I did not want to leave at the end of this interview. I wanted to stay and talk to Spike Jonze some more. There are a few reasons for this. One is that Spike Jonze has had a long, interesting career. There’s a lot to ask him about. He’s directed so many notable music videos, some great feature films (Being John Malkovich and Where The Wild Things Are) and has been a part of the Jackass team since its inception.
Then, there’s that Spike Jonze is so much fun to talk to. Eloquent, friendly, enthusiastic and inspiring. This may rank amongst the most unprofessional things said on Den »
