    Just saw a trailer for Oblivion last night starring Tom Cruise and Morgan Freeman. It looked pretty good.

    Dagon - 7/10

    I've been meaning to watch it for ages but only just got around to it thanks to someone mentioning it in a comments thread earlier.

    Probably the best film based on a Lovecraft work I've seen and once it gets going after 10-15 minutes is suitably creepy and unsettling right to the very end.

    Well worth a watch and is actually on YouTube for those who are curious.

    Rose Red

    Better than I remember! Very campy, fairly decent performances and excellent atmosphere. Sadly, I didn't find it particularly scary and with a running time of approximately 4 hours, I don't think I will be rewatching it regularly. Still, I very much enjoyed it and recommend watching it at least once.

    7/10

    Contagion

    Seem some pretty scathing reviews on here for this. Its not that bad. Doesn't really get out of 2nd gear, but its watchable. Very muted, quite procedral. A couple of the plot lines are pointless, and it is get as many a listers to pick up the paycheck, but for the most part the film works even if doesn't go anywhere without much to say.

    5.5/10

    Lawless

    Shia LeBouf didn't spoil it like I thought he would. Good yarn.

    8/10

    And yes. That's as bad as it sounds.

    The Hobbit - An Unexpected Journey Filled With Utter Orc Turd and Awesomeness. Are you Tolkien the piss/10 A generous 7/10

    I saw this on the IMAX in HRF (Higher Frame Rate) 3D. What does this mean? It runs at twice the frame rate in order for the 3D to be much better than anything you've ever seen before. Ever. It's supposed to be crystal clear and give you a truly incredible 3D effect. Time for a deep breath here as this has a significant impact on the film. There are some major problems with the film itself but I'll get to that later.

    James Cameron tested HRF when doing Avatar and decided against using it. He was smart. What has the effect of totally loosing any kind of cinematic feel. It's all gone! It's like watching a HD documentary. The sets look like film sets. The fake beards look like fake beards. It's too clean and crisp and utterly strips it of the 'magic' of cinema. This is really apparent in the indoor scenes to the point of distraction. Anyone who's seen a blu-ray where they've gone totally OTT the DNR will know what I'm yabbering on about. It totally ground the film in reality and for a film of this kind, its not a good thing.

    Moving onto the film, the idea of turning what was originally a two part into a three part film series is a colossal mistake. The first 80 mins is a slow, boring, lumbering mess. They've reeeallly stretched it out. This is almost the running times of some films. A literal pain in the ass!

    In terms of the Hobbit story, it doesn't have any of the colourful central characters of The Lord Of The Rings. It's a totally unfair comparison I know but it still need to engage the audience.

    I did promise you awesomeness and this film does have it. There's a certain point where the film turns (at 8.40pm by my watch. Seriously, I looked!). The plot and action finally get going and things get up to a standard that's up there with the very best of the LOTR trilogy. Even the HRF shows off what it is truly capable of. It's jaw droopingly stunning. This is at it's best in the outdoor action scenes. The latter part of the film is incredible. What they've done with Gollum is probably worth the £13 it cost for the ticket.

    To sum up, skip the first hour and watch it at a normal frame rate on as big a screen as you possibly can. I want to see this again on a normal non 3D screen. The first 80 mins though is not making we want to rush and see it in a hurry.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Peter Jackson in meandering film shocker.

    Your description above is in line with what I would expect. The books aren't exactly straight to the point either.

    No doubt its good overall, but its not made for me I suspect.

    FCUTA!

    It's actually a bit shit in comparison to a film called The Resurrected(it's on netflix if you're wanna watch) a very straight take on The Case of Charles Dexter Ward. Have a watch if you're a HPL fan.

    @joelstinton my other half (who's a junior sister) really praised Contagion for its medical accuracy. After we watched it she turned to me and said "that's exactly how a pandemic would occur". I'd like to see it again, except some of the more gruesome bits I found tough to sit through.

    A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge: 5/10

    There's a giant vein of homosexual/bisexual subtext throughout the film, which completely diverted my attention away from the horror aspect of it. I wonder how many people got that when it first came out?

    @CosmicFuzz

    No. Or at least I don't think so. I got in a bit later and the lights were still on and they had a few trailers. If they were to show it, I would assume they'd have the lights off.

    One thing I will say about the HFR. Some of the effects look totally awesome.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Life of Pi: 95/100

    Absolutely brilliant stunning visuals, 3D that actually works (probably the best I've seen since Avatar), great acting, good use of humour and a genuinely moving story. Some people will be put off by the message, because they can't just accept a good story if it involves anything to do with religion, but it's a fantastic movie.

    In terms of adaptation of the book, I don't think fans of the book will be disappointed at all. I read it ages ago though, so there might be some things missing or added that I'm not aware of.

    Just checked the run time, apparently over 2 hours and it didn't feel like it at all, which is a great sign.

    I thought Contagion was really excellent.

    It is also the perfect blueprint for a proper World War Z film in it's depiction of multiple plot lines over different periods of time and across different locations.

    This. Was about an 8 for me. Really enjoyed it, firmly grounded in reality too. Much better than Outbreak.

    yeah i think that side works well, the whole process was interesting. The film was just basically that though, it could have done with an underlying theme/critique or something to take it to the next level . i agree though It was perfectly watchable/enjoyable though.

    looking really forward to seeing this. I enjoyed the book till the last chapter where it tells you what you should have been reading to some extent, so i wonder how they will handle that side to it if they do, but the trailer is fantastic.

    Did anyone else think Skyfall was going to do a "Home Alone"? Half expecting a paintpot to come flying over the staircase.

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

    Life of Pi! Very exciting. I'm struggling to reconcile the visual treatment the film has compared with what's in my head after reading the book, but I'm really, really looking forward to it. Every time I see the trailer I get a little teary.

    If you take what's been shown in the trailer as an example: the bit where you see the zebra escaping from the lower levels of the ship whilst it's sinking, I can see that being re-shown at the end with the zebra being replaced with the "true" mammal, so to speak.

    Director of Oldboy finishes his Vengeance trilogy, with a third film that isn't a patch on the previous two.
