    I thought the Life of Pi book was heavy handed in its metaphor and got lost in act three, but there you go.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Conan the Barbarian

    The Arnold version from 1982. I was 12 when this was first released and seen it a few times over the years. I've finished reading Arnie's latest biography "Total Recall" and he talks quite a lot about the film in that and it reminded me to watch it again.

    His first blockbuster and full moody looks, lots of fighting and hardly any dialogue. I do like it though. Has a certain charm.

    80/100

    She has a nice chest.

    Fish fingers and chips pretty straight forward.

    Even if she were running towards the spaceship, she still would have been the best part!

    Snowtown 7/10

    Interesting little film with some good very performances. Understandably disturbing at times, not so much that its violent, just the overall tone of the film.
    A tough watch though and a hard one to give a score to.

    Tyrannosaur (2011) - 7/10

    Peter Mullan strutting around his local community as a jumped up has-been. He is going off the rails when he meets a female charity worker and they become involved in each others lives.

    Wasn't a particularly easy or positive watch but some good performances by the front two. I expect the entire contents of this movie are seen every week in a suburbs near you.

    It's just fucking awful.

    If you manage to sit through the entire film you're a stronger man than I am.

    Battlefield Earth is atrociously bad, and not in a 'so bad it's good'-way, no. It's absolute garbage. I'd rather watch The Stand again.

    Brighton Rock (2011)

    Decent, the last third pulls it together really well. Really dark film as well, sam reily , and andrea gainsbrough are terrific.

    Only problem is the seduction of andrea character is really week. She is easily turned off by the character at the start, but instantly falls for pinky, despite him showing flashes of pure evil within moments of meeting her. i understand her being young and naive, and pinky having to seduce her and marry her, but it jars a bit.

    havn't seen the original.

    6/10

    I've yet to see Prometheus. I'm sure i'll check out the Blu-ray some day, and on that day I will see more of Charlize Theron. Hell, for all I know I've see her in other films without noticing.

    Dark Knight - 7.5 / 10

    It was good but not amazing. Bane was stupid aswell, sounded like a posh dude with his balls being crushed.

    Charlize Theron was barely in the film, and she chould have just gone left or right. (trying to speak with no spoilers)

    The Hobbit

    Reminded me of King Kong - Jackson sure knows how to turn a simple and fun story into a long and boring one. Everything that is good about it is from the goodwill carried over from LotR. It looks great and it's nice to be back in that world. And there the goodness ends. Boring, terribly paced and obscenely long. When there is action it has little meaning due to a plot that feels of little significance compared to the previous films. And the worst part is that most of the good bits of the book have been done so I don't know what the others will be like.

    Batman Dark Knight Returns or Whatever the Last One Was that Everybody Decided to Take A Disliking To is Called

    Thought it was ok, quite enjoyed it for what it was. Not a fan of super-hero stories and comics, but it worked for me despite of or maybe because of that. I think it had an impossible reputation after Batman Where The Bloke that Died Was In It so it was always going to be disappointing. Hype is a double edged sword. Quite long, and I'm glad I saw it at home and not the cinema. Bloody loud though.

    That is a bit worrying. I've pre-emtively decided to wait till the whole lot was done before watching, and was wondering how he was going to string out a trilogy from the source material. Hmm. Guess I'll find out in 5 years!

    Amour - 10/10

    Elderly couple, the wife has a stroke and it tells the story of her decline. Excruciating to watch and impossible to take your eyes off. I cried in the cinema, don't think I've ever done that :(



    The Master - Not Sure/10... Probably about an 8 or 9.

    I love Paul Thomas Anderson's films and his style is all over this. The leads are amazing and the story is never less than intriguing, but I didn't take as much from it as There Will Be Blood. I found the ending a little unsatisfactory and considering what a long film it is, I don't think it explored the workings of the cult enough. Still, glad I saw it before it left the cinema.



    Incidentally, I saw this in the Odeon Studios at Leicester Square, has anyone else been?! It's a cool concept: five mini-cinemas in a tower, but why the hell do they have an enormous Costa sign above the door and cafe in the entrance. I didn't realise it even existed until the doorman pointed me next door.

    LoveFilm sent me two blurays recently.

    The first was Hugo, which I ordered on the back of all the awards it won. While the cinematography was very good, and I really don't generally have a problem with slow-paced films, the whole thing was exceptionally dull and rife with irritating historical inaccuracies. Plus and film takes a hit when they cast Jude Law, in my opinion.

    The second was Battleship. I would be lying out my ass if I said that I didn't enjoy that one. Stupid, entertaining and very pretty.

    Now...does this say more about me or the Academy?

    Ted 7/10. Its okay. It is quite funny but quickly falls into standard formula that isn't ironic. The funniest bits of the film are the narrative references to stuff outside of the film.

    It is funny but backs off from being a real side splitter ; which it could so easily have been.

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    I-bet-Tom-hardy-has-trouble-finding-scarfs-for-that-beefcake-neck/10 (that's a 5)

    Was okay. But yeah hardy is ripped. Not sure how he can move he's so beef. He's so beef in fact his bro is played by Shia lebeef!

    Quite violent which was cool but just didn't go anywhere. Guy Pearce was a nice shitty bastard of a villain. Almost comical.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    Or y'know, it was just worse than the other two. We are not all complete idiots that we'd be that affected by hype.

    Get bent.

    The Hobbit 85/100

    Better than I had heard it was going to be and only marked down for being very slow to get going.

    Having said that, taking into account that this movie is the first part of a trilogy that is likely to be around the 9 hours mark in total, I guess an hour spent setting the scene is actually quite reasonable.

    Action sequences were fantastic and it has the same feel as the LOTR trilogy, which I enjoyed. Naturally, the setting and SFX are awesome.

    I saw the movie in standard 2D and didn't even notice the controversial frame rate. (Not even sure it applies to the 2d version???)

    Just not happy I have to wait another two years for the story to reach it's conclusion!

    The "WHY IS IT SO LONG AT THE BEGINNING?!" question get answered constantly (with your answer), but people seem to constantly forget.

    Fairly sure 2D is 24fps only btw.

    And is it confirmed we're getting one a year? I can't remember how often the LOTR films came out.

    Get bent.

    Thanks for confirming the frame rate.

    The LOTR films were annual, but I've not actually heard when the next Hobbit movie will be out.

    Not saying you all were, so odd you should get so defensive. Fwiw I never rated the first one as particularly awesomez. The second stands out for lots of reasons, the 3rd is bold and memorable for it's audacity. The first was a much more conventional superhero flick from what I remember.
