We’re back with the Weekly Ricochet and we’re opening with a flipping epic pic of Batman from The Dark Knight Rises. Christian Bale is pulling his fiercest, most comic book-like pose ever as The Bat. I love it. We’ve had a lengthy trailer from both The Amazing Spider-Man and The Avengersisn’t it time Chris Nolan gave us The Dark Knight Rises one? Continue reading

Whatever your view, we can all agree it’s a great excuse to roll out silly feature, so The Shootening is taking a look at the greatest love of all – The bromance. We’ve all heard the saying – Bros before females (no sexist/misogynist language here, please), but what of those poor unfortunate types who know not what this love is? Well, don’t worry we have the top five examples neatly listed for you below.

As the year comes to an end, those lucky bastards at The New York Times Magazine have managed to get together a collection of the year’s most notable stars for a special video gallery entitled “A Touch Of Evil”. A gallery where each of those shining examples of humanity have chosen a theme and character to portray their inner-villain. Let’s take a look.

We’ll start with Rooney Mara because I like her best. Continue reading
