Thoughtful tweens and teens interested in history and unusual adventurous stories of kids their own age should love this, but adults may find the lightness of the tone off-putting. I’m “biast” (pro): nothing
I’m “biast” (con): nothing
I have not read the source material
(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
I haven’t read the Markus Zusa novel this is based on, but what ended up on the screen makes me suspect that it might be one of those unfilmmable books that should probably have been left alone. On the one hand, this is a tale of a tough, plucky young girl — that alone is rare enough to be cheered — who loves books and loves reading, which doubles the reason for applauding it. On the other hand, this is essentially a kids’ movie about life in Nazi Germany, and it ends up being »

Battle Creek is the next series from Breaking Bad creator Gilligan. David Shore serves as showrunner and last week cast fellow House alum Kal Penn as a detective. The logline: “When two detectives with very different world views are teamed up, they must answer the question: is cynicism, guile and deception enough to clean up the semi-mean streets of Battle Creek, Michigan in the face of a complete lack of resources; or is the exact opposite true – it takes naïveté, trust and a boatload of resources? »

Our voyage through history's underappreciated films arrives at the year 2008 - another great year for lesser-seen gems...
For some, 2008 will be memorable as the year of The Dark Knight, with its astonishingly unhinged turn from the late Heath Ledger. Alternatively, it could be remembered as the year a legion Indiana Jones fans left cinemas glum-faced, having sat through Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull.
Elsewhere, Meryl Streep and Pierce Brosnan sang and danced on a Greek island in Mamma Mia!, while Will Smith played an alcoholic superhero in Hancock. But as usual, 2008 offered plenty of watchable movies outside the top 10, which is where we swoop in - like Hancock after a bottle of gin.
So as usual, here's our selection of 25 underappreciated films from the year 2008 - starting with a British horror film starring Michael Fassbender...

It’s safe to say that Hammer have undergone quiet the significant transformation in recent years. They have set out their stall in bold fashion, and with The Woman in Black gave us the definitive film version of Susan Hill’s classic chiller.
As well as broadening out the brand to include novels, from the likes of Jeanette Winterson, they are doing much to honour their name and clearly define themselves as a true leader in modern British horror. So with The Angel of Death (Susan Hill’s follow up to The Woman in Black) waiting in the wings we have the delights of The Quiet Ones to come, and we’ve got the first look at the poster for the film.

There’s been a bits-and-pieces feel to Matthew Modine’s big-screen career of late, with worthy roles in chunky projects like The Dark Knight Rises insufficient to satisfy a fanbase he built up with breakthrough turns in Full Metal Jacket and Memphis Belle. Happily, for anyone craving a dose of pure, uncut Modiness, he's soon be popping up in Steve Jobs biopic Jobs and according to Variety, he’ll be joining Olivia Williams in Altar, a new British horror earmarked for Toronto’s Frightfest in SeptemberThe pair will play an American artist and his English wife and see them fixing up a country pile with a very dark past. There may be shades of The Conjuring, The Woman In Black and other classic haunted house tropes in that back story: a Satanist who sacrificed his wife had been driven to madness by her ghost – a lot of bad feng shui »
Daniel Radcliffe has been making bold strides in the years since Harry Potter came to an end, choosing movies that cross a wide array of genres, and his latest choice sounds like another great move, with the actor attached to star in Douglas McGrath’s Brooklyn Bridge.
