Give me £5 I'm worth it.

The Hunger Games|
A reasonably entertaining knock off of The Running Man and Battle Royale. However it does over stay its welcome, you could easily shave 30 minutes from the cut and it be a better film.
Benicio Del Toro was great, but what a dire film cant believe how bad it was

I Saw the Devil - 7/10|
Decent Korean revenge flick, but a few too many inconsistencies and bizarre bits of scriptwriting to make it really great.
Harry Potter 1-3|
Bought the 8 film DVD set, watching it with a friend, so far its a bit slow and boring, both of us are noticing flaws here and there, but enjoyable and fun.
Eurogamer's local Canadian member. Eh?
Utter garbage. Sadly, Oliver Stone completely lost it. He hasn't made anything good since Any Given Sunday.
Shit. Pure shit.
Our Day Will Come (2010) 8.5/10|
Picked this up as part of a buy 3 Blu-rays for £20 in HMV. This was the 3rd difficult choice.
The black and red cover is deceiving to say the least and gives the impression of gangland warfare. The story is nothing of the sort. It is a film about two ostracised redheads. It really is quite original, and never became boring.

For those that haven't seen it, I thoroughly recommend wild Bill. It's Dexter 'press gang' Fletcher's directorial debut and it's bloody brilliant!|
The kid out of Son of Rambow is superb.

So poor, I couldn't believe it with the cast (apart from Stiller, as I don't like him).

A Tale Of Two Sisters - 9/10
Stunning Korean thriller/horror film that just freaked me the fuck out.
It's starts off with a girl in a hospital who clearly has been through a traumatic experience. She is then taken home by her dad with her timid sister, to have stepmom waiting for them.
You can tell that something really terrible has happened there. You just don't know what and it's doesn't do the big reveal till the very end. In the meantime, the film just cranks up the tension to the max and just doesn't let up.
There are a couple of scenes in this film which I could feel my temperature drop and I got goosebumps all over. What makes it all the better though is that it's not your typical "walking around a quite house waiting for something to make you jump" type scenes. In one of them, you know that something wicked this way comes but the way it's done is just spectacular. The other main scare is in a scene of total hysteria which is freaky enough in itself. Until...
The rest of the film is excellent in delivering the scares. There are the jumpy moments but most of the time it's what you may call a "creeper". It's up there with The Ring and The Grudge (of which the US remakes were very good films). This has been remade in the US as The Uninvited. I haven't seen that yet but it's meant to be crap.
Oh yes, and there's no "twist" ending either. You get to find out what really happened and everything just slots together nicely. Apart from the really freaky shit which freaked me the fuck out!
The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

|Absolutely loved Tale of Two Sisters. Sadly the first and only time I saw it was on a projector screen in a poorly lit room so there were bits I missed.|
Skyfall - 8.5/10|
Loads of fun, and nice to see in a year of such lackluster cinema. Completely though Ralph Fiennes was going to be the main baddie, just because he always is

OK, something very odd is happening where it seems like the last post dates back to July, but when I actually write a comment, it brings me to the most recent page with all the most recent comments.|
On the forum page, the last page is listed as number 1,910.
edit: never mind it seems to be fine now. Everyone back to their regularly scheduled lives.

|It's a significant bug really. I find it fairly surprising it's still around.|

You're not wrong though. The films I was most lokking forward to have gone as follows:
Prometheus - a mess (a pretty one, but still a mess)
The Dark Knight Rises - Solid, but failed to light my fire for some reason. (I do need to see it again now I've killed my own hype)
Skyfall - boring and Bond turned a bit rapey. (Bardem rescued it. Just.)
I'm now very worried for The Hobbit. Absolutely love the LotR trilogy, but with the splitting of this in to three films, a dull initial trailer and reports of the film technology making it look a little funky, I've grown very nervous. The more recent, better trailer has given me some hope; let's hope it's not just a fool's hope.
Why look, it's a blog:
