    Yeah, but nick already covered why it works for Avengers but not for Bats.

    The Thing - 1/10

    Not even flame-throwers could rescue it.

    Premium Rush
    Too long, too kiddish, it's like BMX bandits without the cultural relevance...I guess guys working at a mobile store aren't as interesting though.

    Still, very likeable after the daftness, so 6/10

    And this is why you don't generally give prequels the exact same name as the film they're the prequel to.

    Safety Not Guaranteed - 7/10

    Watched out of curiosity on the back of the well circulated advert, and really didn't think I'd like it given so many of the indie movie cliché boxes are thoroughly ticked, but it's heartwarming and rewarding. However it was grating that the, otherwise well developed and structured, subplot is left completely and bewilderingly hanging in the air.

    Midnight Cowboy - 8/10

    Came close to giving up on it at several points early on, but by God it builds and builds.

    The Tourist (2010) 7/10

    It is all very well made. Acting is good etc. I liked the locations etc. The story is 7/10 at best. It lacked anything that made me really like the film. Best described as easy going family entertainment, lacking any real edge. As interesting as Jolie looks, I’ve never really seen her in all that many films, and the few films I’ve seen her in (Salt being another) have all bordered on bland. Her acting does little for me.

    First time I saw this I think I was about 16 years old. I remember thinking it was very thrilling.

    Now...

    The problem with classics are that they influence films decades on. So all those things that were fresh on first viewing is standard fare to me now more than two decades later.

    It's a good film. Great even. But time hasn't been kind to it. The obvious studio shots don't help. The ending is a mess.

    For fans of film

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Iron Sky

    This looked like just another over-hyped B movie, but turned out to be absolutely excellent.
    Very impressed. Looked fabulous, The acting was, if not Academy award level, then certainly acceptable. Decent story with plenty of laughs but without ever descending into 'Airplane' style stupidity.

    For $10m, or whatever it cost, it certainly showed George Lucas how to make an entertaining sci-fi blockbuster, because it kicked The Phantom Menace's butt!

    Amour 10/10

    Moving, touching, terrifying and elegant.

    An outstanding portrait of a couple dealing with old age and illness, loyalty and love.

    Outstanding, perfectly crafted cinema.

    Ah, that's coming to our indie cinema after Xmas. I already had my eye on it. Will try and see it now, 7/10 is enough for me...and I like Aubrey Plaza.

    Kill List

    Was quite enjoying it as a subdued but brutal hitman flick, then it goes all Wickerman out of nowhere and completely lost me.

    WTF?!/10
    I think you should spoilerise most of that tbh.

    Nolan films are the best superhero films. They shit all over others. Original Superman films are OK, in the fact that they are so shit it's funny to watch.

    Nolan films aren't superhero films though.
    They're comic films embarrassed to be what they are and are really just mob thrillers

    Dark Knight Rises - DNF/10

    Not sure what sort of sound system I'm supposed to have for this but it was unwatchable. One second the dialogue's coming out as a whisper, the next gunshots are cracking my windows. Oh, apart from Bane, who seems to have his voice on a different track altogether and mismatches the rest of the vocal work.

    No amount of system tweaking could get it to a point where I could hear anything with any consistency so I gave in. Tried it on the projector through the sound system and then resorted to the TV - dogshit.

    And that's ignoring the dumbass aspect-ratio changes as Nolan fails to make a decision about which fucking format to film the movie in. IMAX isn't suited to feature films on the whole but if you're going to go that way at least make a fuckign commitment.

    I won't comment on the film, I was too distracted by the nonsense above to be able to tell what was going on.

    I agree, the audio on Blu ray is appalling.

    As is the off screen deaths with neck snaps followed by screams about 20 seconds later :lol:

    I had the same issue with the imax thing for DKR, and yes, I did see it in an imax. Gimmicky shit that Nolan hypocritically claims to be above by not making his films in 3D.

    The last two Nolan Batmans had fucking awful fighting, Keaton looked less static. Take the car park from the start of TDK, block, punch, one step forward, block, punch, one step forward. It's like the drilled soliders from Army of Darkness.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    I like the final fight scene where everyone politely decides to fight one-on-one in neat orchestrated patterns.

    Apparently there was a stunt guy doing the suit fights in Begins so it looked faster, more ninja like and I think being a lot darker and sneaky helped that even more. Bale took over the fights for the sequels and it slows right down along with larger scenes and more light.

    One of many reasons daylight in TDKR was a mistake.
