    Reservoir Dogs
    82%
    Marvellous debut from Tarantino, but certainly not close to the 100 percenter Pulp Fiction.
    Tarantino's acting is very weak in this (he probably peaked in Dusk Til Dawn) but Michael Madsen is cast, coached and directed brilliantly as the completely unhinged Blond.

    50/50
    8/10
    A well done film about a guy dealing with cancer. All light hearted (as can be) for the most part and well acted.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    Just finished watching THE SKIN I LIVE IN. Engaging, very light on script/dialogue but a reasonable watch nonetheless. 7/10

    Started to watch THE OTHER GUYS earlier too. Turned it off after 30 minutes. WillFerrell/10

    Comic-Con Episode IV: A Fan's Hope

    Awesome documentary (though it's pretty light on details of the show and just follows a few people from different walks of life with common interests as they participate in various parts of the con) with famous people, from the movie and comic worlds, talking about why they love it. Genuine feel good ending too. Very enjoyable super-geeky chill-out viewing.

    Cabin in the Woods - 5/10

    Like an episode of Buffy/Angel with better SFX. Definitely the work of Whedon - No proper explanations and a couple of genuine surprises don't make up for it.......bodes badly for The Avengers...

    Buried 8/10 They did a lot with so little to work with, kept me gripped throughout, terrific if a bit harrowing.

    On UK Netflix as well.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Battleship 3/10

    Featuring the most inept aliens in any film ever. It's also smothered in American military cheesiness.

    3 points for some nice effects sequences

    The Tournament

    Very silly, but quite fun to watch. Some good fights.

    The Horseman - 8.5/10

    An excellent low-budget Australian revenge thriller. Daughter gets caught up with a load of low life scum and ends up drugged up, in a porn film and dead. In other words, she's just had a real bad day.

    Dad finds out, goes on the rampage and takes them all out. This is a bit different from your traditional revenge film in two ways.

    1. Turns out the daughter did all of this (apart from the dead bit) of her own free will and was paid to do the film. This puts a bit of a twist on the story as dad goes on the rampage. Which leads me to...

    2. The quality of the acting. It really is stunning. The dad's wrestling with the fact he knows she did this of her own free will. Also when he's killing then nasty men, you can see that he really having trouble with it. There's also a scene which goes against everything a revenge film like this is about and makes it all the better.

    The film is also really violent. Fishhooks, blowtorches, bicycle pumps (that scene is really horrible but you don't see anything), crowbars, sledgehammers and the like are all out to good use.

    Well worth a watch.

    Happy Go Lucky - 10/10

    What a truly wonderful and uplifting film. Needed this after watching The Horseman.

    The first 15-20 mins is just non-stop funny. In fact, pretty much the whole film is hilarious from start of finish. There are a few serious issues that are dealt with and it does them really well but they are kind of fleeting and it soon gets back to the laughs.

    Not much happens but that's not the point. Story is of a primary school teacher who gets her bike nicked and has to take driving lessons. The driving instructor is played by Eddie Marsan and he's just brilliant.

    A proper mean, grumpy bastard you just hope that the main character's effervescent personality will break through his armour and he'll just cheer up, just a little bit. To say what happens would be telling...

    This is probably the best feel good film I've seen. I like this film a lot and if you're feeling down I defy you not to have a huge smile by the time this film finishes.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Timecrimes - 8/10

    Brilliant. I loved the film Triangle that came out a while back, they clearly lifted a lot from this. Excellent film.

    Cabin in the Woods. 8/10.

    About time we saw some brains up in this genre, provides a great frame for a traditional stupid horror film. Very funny in places, but skilfully switches between horror and comedy without messing up. Acting isn't always great, but most of it is competent and upwards. Only real gripe is the last act is telegraphed quite clearly, so it's a little predictable where it's going to end up, but it's still very enjoyable.

    The Divide       Not sure/10

    Strange film about a group of survives from a nuclear attack who are grouped together in a basement for the days/weeks that follow. 

    The film is beautifully shot but kinda ruined by the vouyeristic violence and brain dead characters. It's also more miserable than The Road and it's pretty obvious that Xavier Gens has little faith in humanity (guess he's still pissed about Hitman).

    Michael Biehn ftw though!

    The Thing (2011 version) 5/10


    Quite disappointed as I love the 1982 version as this new prequel is almost good at times. It's let down by some shoddy cgi and it's more a remake than prequel. There's a a lack of suspense and pacing which also brings the score down. I admit I laughed at the crude joke at the beginning

    Fortress 2/10 thought it was a sci-fi film when I downloaded it but it turned out to be this shit, had to watch it all even though it was piss poor.

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    How to Train Your Dragon - 9/10

    Lots of fun and looks great. Anyone who isn't smiling throughout has no soul.

    The Cabin In The Woods.

    The premise was actually more straight forward than I was led to believe but it still had some surprises and was most of all a lot of fun.

    Kind of reminded me of Drag Me To Hell too.

    Recommended.

    We Need To Talk About Kevin 87/100

    Its not a laugh a minute. What it does, it does well.
    I have to admit, I was expecting something bigger at the end, compared to what came.

    I was expecting some weird twist, like it was the mother all along that blinded her daughter in one eye, and put the small furry animal in the insinkerator etc.

    Sure, the slaughting using a bow and arrow is extreme, the idea, nothing is shown during the film, remember that.

    The film failed to anwser one question. Was Kevin born that way. Or was Kevin the result of his upbringing ? - Maybe the idea was not to anwser the question.

    the book (which is great btw) is this question. The mother examines her role in all the mess. At first its all kevin but it gradually evolves in to quite a deep anaylysis of herself and society. The conclusion is that they are both quite similar, and kevin homage to her, despite his action is quite moving. He looks up to her in some sort of form because she like kevin was not afraid to ask questions, but be quite cynical about the world. Which he learned from her, despite not seeming too at first.

    one thing about the book, is theres a massive twist which i can;t really see how the film could do. for anyone who read the book, how is the (its important that those who want to read the book don't read this bit!!) whole mother writing letters to her dead husband handled? or is it kind of written out of it?,

    probably going to get the usual abuse but here goes

    Sucker Punch - 9/10

    Loved it. great film with lots of angles. Its like a mature and intelligent Inception may have been more enjoyable due to the Jacobs creek Merlot.

    Star Trek First Contact - 9/10. Favourite trek movie. Picard Loses it big time. great film.

    That is all

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    I agree with both those, though I do understand the dislike of Sucker Punch as there is a lot to hate, but I love it :)

    Oh for goodness sake, I've caught my scrotum in my zip again - Margaret Thatcher, 1986

    CAVEMAN'S VALENTINE - 8/10 - Really unexpected, this one. Samuel L Jackson plays Romulus, a schizophrenic cave dweller in New York who, after finding a dead guy at the entrance to his cave, decides to investigate what happened.

    Really enjoyed it. I've not seen such a solid portrayal of mental illness for a while. The film has you guessing constantly about whether what you're seeing is real or just a part of Romulus' delusions. Jackson pulls it off perfectly, putting real venom into some of the rants.

    On US Netflix, worth a watch for sure

    Yes, that is definitely the merlot talking.
