    Headhunters. 8/10, very good, slick and clever and unashamedly nasty at times. Difficult film to warm to though.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Headhunters does continue the Norwegian filmmakers' habit of having lots of faecal matter related shenanigans, which is 'nice'. After Dead Snow, I'd hoped never to see such things again. :)

    A Royal Affair

    (Danish film with English subtitles) - starring Mads Mikkelsen (he played Le Chiffre in the Daniel Craig Bond film Casino Royale).

    Really enjoyed A Royal Affair - a bit predictable at times but so well written and acted that it didn't matter. Lovely cinematography too.

    9/10

    (Recently released on Blu-ray and DVD).

    Skyfall

    Good story, good acting. Craig was excellent yet again, Javier Bardem was brilliant - i was hoping he would have been captured rather than killed at the end to use in the next movie in some capacity.

    They do seem to be taking Bond down the "Nolan route" (ie, more realistic) which i personally am ok with.

    Only let downs were the lack of a jaw dropping set-piece and the fact that MI6 apparently keep their most valued information on a single, laptop hard-drive :|

    Overall, enjoyable. A million times better than Quantum of Shite, yet not quite as good as Casino Royale.

    Headhunters 7/10

    Enjoyable but I didnt like the characters. American remake is on the way as well which I imagine will be crap.

    I think Stallone is a great. Probably the most under-rated guy in Hollywood.

    A Royal Affair was excellent. More people should see it.

    As you rightly point out, the performances were excellent from all the cast, believable and complex characters throughout the film (along with a couple of 'boo, hiss' villainy types as well).

    It also helps that the main actress (Alicia Vikander) is strikingly attractive in the film.

    P.S. Your "a bit predictable at times" comment's a little harsh given that it was based on real events...

    True, just thought I'd mention it. :)

    That aside, I'd still highly recommend it.

    Deranged

    Chronicles the Ed Gein case in a fairly graphic way for a 70's flick. Quite liked it but a narrator interrupts the flow of things once too often. I'd recommend Ed Gein (aka In the Light of the Moon) over this. Steve Railsback truly nails the role in that one.

    5/10

    There's Something About Mary

    I remember one of my early girlfriends dragging me into this back in the late 90's. Some very funny bits but ultimately boils down to a simple romcom. Not a fan of Ben Stiller though.

    6/10

    Take the plastic bag challenge to cure stupidity.

    Cold light of day - 7/10. Its alright. Nothing special. Could have done with more twists and turns to the story.

    Looper - 10/10

    We're doing well with Looper, Inception and Moon. Much better than the bloated mess The Dark Knight Rises was.

    Frozen - 6/10

    Three people get stranded on a ski lift and get a bit cold. Its a good premise, and as a skier quite a terrifying one that for the most part is handled pretty well. The groups reactions and then attempts to rescue themselves are things that I know I have definitely thought about when going up the lifts and surely 99% of others have as well. Unfortunately the premise is completely ruined when the wolves show up. There was absolutely no need for them. The situation/cold was enough. It didn't need anything else.

    The Shining - 10/10

    Still blows me away every time I watch this movie. It really is timeless too. Everything about the atmosphere, the incredible cinematography and the completely over-the-top soundtrack. This is a film that truly separates the men from the boys in film making, and one of Kubrick's very best. Also, Jack Nicholson - 10/10. Probably one of the most incredible and unsettling performances ever seen in film. Shelley Duvall also under-rated as the lady in complete distress. And that axe scene! Truly unforgettable film.

    Stolen - 1/10

    Nicholas Cage B-movie. Abysmal in all aspects. Predictable, terrible acting from everyone involved and just completely and utterly pointless. Not to mention the irritating Crimewatch-theme style music that seems to be constantly played out through the entire film.

    Fair review. I felt pretty much the same as you. Was definitely a surprise, I expected something poo! My brother to this day holds it against me for making him watch it (he's a sensitive soul!)

    Watching Snowtown this evening.

    Total Recall 2012

    I watched the first half of the movie but had to stop.
    Beckinsale pulling off the empowered super girl-power routine was just too much and I developed too much contempt for her role. I do hope she gets less screen time in the second part.

    What I really like about the movie so far is the cyber-punk setting - it's not Blade Runner but whoever did design it has done incredible work. Easily the best part of the movie.
    Just the bit where they show Obama's face on one of the cash bundles broke my immersion. Keep the funding more subtle, guys ;)

    Well I'm not finished yet but so far it could still get a 7 if Beckinsale's role dies quickly.

    I felt exactly the same, until about 3/4 of the way through. I actually found myself thinking 'how is this so badly hated?'...then I continued to watch :lol:

    Haha, yeah. ;)

    One other thing I liked was the fat lady part where everybody was thinking AHA! I remember that from the first movie incarnation.

    But even that was messed up by my standards. They should have focused the viewer attention on the guy and not on the lady, then the surprise would have been even greater for those who knew about the Arnold movie.

    But of curse, cater to the people who either didn't see the first one or have some memory leak.

    @Gambit1977 Actually I liked her very much, not (only) because of the 3 tits but she was a nice (as in personality) hooker. Much nicer than the "I give good wife" robot. She should have been one of the co-stars!

    Len Wiseman, I think it's really time for you to switch your girl and push a new young career. That 3 tits gal looks like a good fondle.

    :lol: very true!
    I just hate how Beckinsale is clearly given such focus because she's married to Wiseman.

    Have I missed the reviews, or are people yet to get round to The Master?

    Given all the love this forum has for Paul Thomas Anderson's leading candidate for 'The Worst Film Ever Made' (TWBB), I was expecting frothy-mouthed praised from everyone.

    I like the cast and premise of The Master, but after the dreadful experience of sitting though the aforementioned TWFEM candidate, I'm not sure I can trust him with my money.

    Interested in opinions and any comparisons with the film better left unnamed.

    Why look, it's a blog:
