    Man on Wire

    Good, but I hoped for a better portrayal of the magic of walking on thin air at 400m. Instead it ended up being a biography of a larger-than-life frenchman with an all-consuming obsession. Which, considering his accomplishments, is fair enough.

    7/10

    Fright Night (remake)

    Farrell's eyebrows perform well in this high school romcom with good action scenes and a tongue-in-cheek sense of fun. Almost instantly forgettable though.

    6.5/10

    Cabin in the woods

    Pretty good film. You could tell early on it wasn't gonna be your average slasher pic but it kept me guessing about what the end game was gonna be until near the finish.

    6.5/10

    Black Dynamite

    I was on a Youtube random video spree and watched an episode of the animated spin-off for this flick. It involved Black Dynamite killing a recognisable set of street puppets, who had turned to pimping and selling drugs. Yep.

    The film itself manages to spoof the Blaxploitation genre perfectly, lead actor Michael Jai White is hilarious in it. The whole concept is of his own making apparently, which impressed me a lot.

    All of the intentional f*ck ups, awful (yet amazing) script and bad camera work left in just add to the experience. Highly recommended.

    (You can watch the whole thing for free on Youtube! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CzDn5MEjcrI&feature=plcp)

    I listened to a podcast with Michael Jai White on it and he said the actors aren't just playing the characters in the movie, they're playing actors who are playing characters in the movie.
    For instance, he was "All-Star running back for the Baltimore Colts Ferrante Jones" who has been given his first movie roll playing Black Dynamite. One of the other characters is "a pimp who helped bankroll the film and so was given a roll in the movie".
    When they breaks character on the fuck-ups, they are breaking into these characters rather than themselves.
    Things happen in the film because the imaginary characters playing the rolls in the film refused to do something that was in the script and so the director (who also has a fake back story) had to improvise around it.
    All very meta.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    I listened to a podcast with someone else who said podcast hosts don't just claim that actors aren't just playing characters in the movie but they're actually hosting a podcast in which actors play themselves, all while being the host dressed up as a character.
    All of this is ultra mega meta.

    I re-watched American Psycho a couple of days ago. It's a great film but I don't really get the ending. It wasn't a great idea watch it after I had a crappy day at work, it gave me ideas. Ideas I would never act on of course...

    So he didn't kill all those people and just imagined it?

    Prometheus

    Finally got around to seeing this, Very lovely effects and photography, The actor playing David was very godo at protraying an creppy Android. I liked all the subtle mesages in it and the references to the Alien films. But overalI I found the film very disjointed, the dialogue was mostly shit, most of the characters were awful with some obvious exceptions. I did like Ridley Scotts subtle trolling of the audience with the whole is she or isn't an android shite with Charlize Therons character, I really couldn't care less. Ridley made sure there was enough evidence to support both theories to keep people arguing for years. The bastard.

    Whilst I love sci-fi, all the imaginary tech, gorgeous spaceship designs, finding out about humanity's origins etc... I found the rest of the film predictable and average.

    5/10

    I seductively endorse this message.

    (The Campaign: 6/10. Daft, but good laughs. Possibly closer to reality than one would like to think, particularly with the not-very-well-disguised Koch brothers.)

    Slap Shot - 6.5/10

    This was the first viewing for me and it wasn't as funny as expected. Paul Newman was good, but then I don't think I've ever seen him do average or less anyway.

    Fun afternoon diversion but The Goon is probably my pick for repeated viewings.

    Good question Kal. I detest Salt and Taken, so that leaves ATB and Prometheus, which is a tough call.

    Maybe Attack The Block for it's bang on social commentary.

    excatly the response i was expecting :D

    But seriously i did turn it off after 45 mins. Coudln't handle the brap brap brap and the bruv bruv bruv and blud blud blud.

    It has a couple of moments - where they call in at home and the parents give out there 'parent' reponses and when the guy falls of his scooter which made me laugh, but there wasn't enough satire to make me think they weren't doing anything other than glorifying the ways kids act. I have to agree with all the people with issues over the beginning. And then to pratically hold her hostage was.. /daily mail thoughts.

    The 80s was a great decade for movies.

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

    I agree. It gets a lot of undeserved shit from people who are a bit too gay for tarkovsky.

    Taken is an action film for the old folks. It's average personified.

    Your Highness

    ZOMG/10

    Bits of it were hilarious.
    Bits of it looked like it was a junior school drama production.

    How the hell did they get Natalie Portman, Zooey Deschanel and Charles Dance involved? Were they being blackmailed?

    Worth £3.75?

    Hell, yes.

    Yeah I couldn't get on with Taken. I did like his policy of killing everything that got in his way. He'd make a good FPS protagonist.

    Edit: typo.

    I started watching The Tall Man last night. Switched off after 20 mins.

    Oh, and as for Taken. Bring on number 3!
