    Dredd (again) 8/10

    Argo - 6/10

    Silver Linings Playbook - 7/10

    Great, but not future-y enough, dry and dull though proficient, and what-the-hell-was-that but enjoyable, in that order. Was really looking forward to Argo too, but it just didn't grip me at all. Knowing the outcome and the faux-tension probably didn't help, and I can't help but compare it to funnier and more outlandish Charlie Wilson's War. Just a bit too serious.

    SLP was a surprise though, with so many jumbled up bits combining into something cohesive, bar the typical finale. Mental health, bookies, the NFL/Eagles, knackered families and a dance contest. Yep, it's that bizarre.

    And Dredd is Dredd. Really awful pin-sharp/grain effects on the BR aside, it's as good an attempt as we'll get
