    Resident Evil Retribution
    How Paul Anderson has a career is beyond me. Normally a guilty pleasure this one is just terrible. One or two nice shots, although one is nicked wholesale from the Dawn of the Dead remake.

    5/10 because Ada Wong is hot.

    It's sad that the general rabble can't differentiate between the goodness of Batman Begins and the clunkiness of TDKR.

    I guess this is how Resident Evil/Paranormal Activity/Saw films keep getting made.

    Get bent.

    Incidentally, BB is my personal favourite of the three (it also has the best soundtrack). BB is my TDK, so to speak.

    @Goodfella completely agree about Event Horizon. Very bizarre. Seems he realised he could make tons of cash with next to nothing. Including talent!

    Someone on here mentioned 2 more films followed by a reboot. If that is true, no doubt he'll still be producer meaning they'll still be the same old.

    Inbred - 8/10

    A lot of effort seems to have been made on the casting, which is excellent. The guy who plays the andlord is superb. This is a very funny gory as hell slapstick romp which is remarkably well done.

    Event Horizon scared the crap out of me when it was released. I saw it recently and it held up well.

    Young Adult.

    Overall tis quite good. Quite a lot of the film resonated with me. Decent script - even if some of the codyisms are a bit irksome but she can poke fun out of herself which balances it back out.

    Sort of nothing film plot wise, but a funny, acute look at being lost in the late twenties early thirties.

    7.5/10

    The Thing (2011) - 6/10

    What idiot gave this a 1/10 again? Whatever. This is a perfectly decent prequel to the superior Carpenter film. Sure the special effects can't compare with Rob Bottin and Stan Winston's work but this is, in my opinion, respectful to the '82 film.

    Total Recall 2012

    After watching for 38 minutes I totally recalled that my life was better 39 minutes ago and turned if off.

    And what is with the future and having to have lens flare in every shot?

    Almost everything in the film is nicked wholesale from other sources. It's one of the most soulless films I've ever watched, and wasn't even vaguely entertaining even in a "so bad it's good" kind of way.

    A View To A Kill - Worse than Die Another Day/10

    Makes Die Another Day look like Goldfinger. Any time Roger Moore has to do something strenuous like lift a cup of tea, it switches to his stunt double. I'm amazed he can even lift an inquisitive eyebrow.

    I switched off after what seemed like an eternity. Tayna Roberts in her nighty thing looked rather fetching. That was 30 seconds of the film.

    The plot is just fucking dreadful as is everything else. I did't even like Christopher Walken and Grace Jones, such is this films shitness.

    I'm not sure what they were thinking with RE: Retribution. It's not like any of them could be considered great films by any stretch of the imagination, but they were all at about the same level entertainment wise - until Retribution.

    What a pile of crap that is. It made me lose faith that the future REs will be worth watching. Some could argue that RE was never worth watching and I don't necessarily disagree with that, but I liked 'em.

    I haz watched: Sherlock Holmes 2, funny and not a bad story. A bit braindead mind.

    LOTR 1-3, I really love these films still. They still look good, and they keep me on edge even though I know what is going to happen. Roll on The Hobbit.

    Casino Royale: Yup, makes Skyfall look a bit meh. Its just so fucking good.

    Retribution has to be one of the worst films I've watched in a long, long time, and that's coming from someone who actually enjoyed the previous films in a guilty pleasure kind of way.

    It's like having fizzy shit sprayed into your face for an hour and a half.

    Wait a second here - I was confusing Retribution and Afterlife. I haven't seen Retribution. Please apply my previous comments to Afterlife.

    I hadn't realized Retribution was even released yet. Seems as though my aforementioned fears were met, though.

    It's out via internet ships.

    You know a film is bad when you steal it and still feel ripped off.

    To steal a joke as well, if people watched this on a flight they would have still walked out.

    American Movie 74%
    One of those documentaries about a group of characters so outlandishly divorced from reality that you begin to believe it's a mockumentary, like Spinal Tap. It's not. These are real people.
    Funny. But a bit tragic. But mostly funny.

    Indie Game: The Movie 71%
    Interesting to see the people behind the games. Most of them seem broken in some small way.

    Just watched it, not sure where you got the 'very funny slapstick' from but fucking hell the gore is pretty nasty. That scene in the pub with the injured guy and the landlord! :eek:
    Its a very dark humour I thought and doesn't take itself too seriously. Like when they are betting on the runaways and having to wear goggles for health and safety the pub called the dirty hole, scratchings...etc... I love horror like this and the guy who played the male care worker was excellently cast and the landlors just brilliant.

    Livid (2011) 7/10

    Not nearly as scary as I was expecting. Itís not scary at all. Acting is good, the film is well made, but the story? Iím not so sure there was a story. All in all, the film failed to live up to expectations.

    @B0rked_Gamer I agree with that. A film suffering the stigma of being a 'prequel' to a classic.
    I imagine even if The Evil Dead next year is half decent, it will be met with disdane.

    Saying that, Total Recall 2012 is pretty bad.

    Tried watching Resi:Rev the other night. Got half an hour or so in and i just couldn't be arsed any more. Sub-videogame-cutscene acting with obvious "THIS IS A 3D BIT" action scenes interspersed. Utter bilge.

    Watched the Expendables 2 last night. I enjoyed the first one as a dumb action film and this was the same but somehow much less interesting - 4/10.

    Steak Land - 6/10

    A vampire film which is not very scary, not very gory and not partially suspenseful or exciting. Yet it's quite strangely compelling.

    It seems to be a mixture of a number of different films. The main vampire hunter reminds me of Whistler from Blade. The plot is a mix of Zombieland and I Am Legend and the voiceover and teen character reminded me of Terminator 3 for some strange reason.

    It takes itself very seriously and the low budget plays in it's favour. It's got a great scene where a community gets torn apart in quite a unique way. Kelly Mcgillis shows up for a while and serves no real purpose to the story.

    It's got a few good ideas in there. Using vampire teeth as currency and there's a religious brotherhood that always seem to show up in post-apocalyptic films.

    However, all said and done, it's a slight above average watch. S'okay.


    As for the last Resi film, it was great when Mila was in her underwear at the start.

    Edit: Just watching a bit of Silent House on Netflix US. I've seen it before. Olsen's tits are fucking sensational!

    I didn't understand the spate of 10/10s following TDKR's release. It kinda sucked.* Compared to its predecessor, anyway. To be fair though, Cotillard's death scene was a masterstroke

    *it was ok
