    Oh dear. You hated it that much? I get shit to this day from some friends for recommending Kill List and The Skin I Live In. They seem to be love/hate kind of films though.

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

    The skin I live in is one of the best films I've seen this year. Truly surprising with wonderful performances...but can I get anyone to watch it? Can I bollocks!

    Vampire Hunter D

    Anime, 1985.

    Watched it with the terrible english audio and yet still it was somehow mesmerizing and fascinating. Dialogue in the movie is rather short and to the point and together with the stiff english dub I almost got a theater vibe with actors performing monologues.
    Together with the colours and style it felt quite surreal. The story is simple and it's fascinating how Japan in the 80s still was very conservative with its female characters. They have an independant streak and yet many classic feminine traits, quite refreshing.

    I give it an 8/10 but that's definitely very subjective.

    The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy (2005) 6/10

    It is a harmless enough film. While Iíve never read the book, I have read the follow up, The Restaurant at the End of the Universe, which was really rather good. Maybe thatís the film Iíd rather have seen made. The Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, the film, didnít really tick enough boxes. I did like Zaphod the robot, along with the Babelfish. For the most part the story lacked laughs - I was expecting a laugh a minute. While the CGI was impressive (IĎm assuming the crabs were CGI), the sets were merely adequate. I didnít know what to make of the film. I wasnít glued put it that way. I stuck with it, looking forward to the end.

    I liked The Skin I Live In. Watched it on Blu-ray. As for that other tosh Kill List - that's 2/10 stuff.

    Batman: The New One 59%
    Avengers: The Movie 84%

    I'm not really one for superheroes. I'm a pretentious twat. But the Avengers film was really good fun.

    The latest Batman movie was like Halo solo single-player (sterile old bloke has limited fun). The Avengers movie was like Halo multi-player with friends (crazy gang blow up bad guys whilst talking rubbish).

    Kill List is awesome 10/10. Teeth is the good version of Excision, Traci Lords should just go back to porn.

    I watched The Avengers yesterday. I enjoyed it a lot, but also feel like I need to watch it again to get a proper feel and come to a firm decision. I thought it was generally excellent if perhaps a little overrated; sort of like 75% territory. I do like Joss Whedon's work though and I missed some of the dialogue early in the film due to other stuff going on, so I hope and expect more substance and nuance will become evident when I next watch it.

    The Girl.

    Quite an interesting film , surrounding Alfred Hitchcock and Tippi Herden. I don't know much about the backstory to this, so i'm not really qualified to say how truth to the bone it is. So in it self is quite hard to rate.

    The film does lean.. actually more than that - in the camp that Hitchcock, whilst a genius - is unattactive, in appearance and personality. He is charmer, but laden with old ideals of women. He is dominating, and puts Tippi Herden through the physlogical ringer, abused in filming to get the best performance from her, and in her personal life abused to the point ,where hitchcock insists on sexual favours in return of her a movie star. Its not pretty. Whilst on the other hand, tippi is portrayed as really innocent and really goes through the sexually abused role. Hitchcock blindly falls in love with her in the midst of a heavy depression as his relationship of 37 years with alma breaks down, amongst issues with his own appearance and getting everything in life.

    So hence, the internet reaction as been quite spectacular, with people instantly dismissing this film as absymal because it does show AH in a really unflattering light. - But more so the extreme criticism is born out of people refusing to believe that this happened and instead on courtney love level of hate - dismiss tippi as being a rubbish actress and she has nothing to moan about because without AH she be nothing - ungrateful bitch etc. So that in it self is an interesting and relevant side story.

    The performances, are top notch, toby jones as alfred his phenomenal - and big kudos to sienna miller as well, probably her finest performance, by a long shot. The cinematography is good - mad men esq detail, with nods to classic hitchcock shots.

    Its hard to rate, because i don't know how true it is! But yeah i like some thoughts on this from other people!

    Yeah watched that earlier, I enjoyed it but it has some structural flaws and is very BBC, and I have a thing about films that just use a placecard sentence in order to justify trying to construct an actual ending. a (generous) 7/10 from me I think.

    Had Astro Boy (the CG one) on earlier today, and it did a pretty convincing job of pulling off an impression of Pixar. Not really my thing, but the OH liked it and he is by his own admission ignorant of its origins. Seemed quite surprised when I explained it was an adaptation of a Manga/JPcomic hero. He liked the robot freedom characters, if his giigle-to-scene ratio is anyting to go by, so probably a good bet or standaby if you have kids.]

    Watched Temple Grandin this afternoon as well on Sky Atlantic, with Clare Danes in the lead. My obvious bias towards the subject matter is a definite contributing factor, but even our relatively "only good music is dubstep, COD is amazing, as are others and introduce interesting new mechanics. Having 3 expansions to launch at game design, a general despisal of reviews prompted him to rise again.

    @joelstinton - I thought it was excellent, Siena Miller and Toby Jones both superb performances and really well done. I understand that Hitch did ruin her career, basically keeping her to the 7 year contract and refusing to let other directors cast her. Its a fascinating slice of an industry with a very dark underbelly that still exists today.
    The Birds was shown on ITV3 afterwards - very interesting to watch it in juxtaposition with the BBC show. Seeing Hedren walking into the pet shop in the first scene and Hitch with his custom cameo walking out at the same time was a real thrill.

    I rather like it, but wouldn't give it more than a 7. Although I did watch it after Bloodlust, which is sublime. Have you seen it?

    The Hobbit 65%

    Somehow it was quite bland. Most of the time I had a feeling that I was watching some sort of deleted scenes pastiche from LotR. Only proper scene was the one with Gollum and Bilbo.

    One of my favourite Arnie films and a cracking swords and sorcery adventure.Like all good things it comes with a fair slice of cheese and quality music.

    I like them but can't remember either well enough to comment on scores. Also I probably rate them a bit higher than they deserve because of the Yoshitaka Amano influence. I'd recommend watching Blood: The Last Vampire too, tis rather good.

    The film isn't a patch on the TV series, which is definitely worth seeking out . You should however, take the time to read the books.

    Cormanís World (2011) 10/10

    A tribute to Rodger Corman, writer, director, producer. Mainly of drive in movies, exploitation stuff. 60 years in the business and over 200 films to his credit. Itís such entertaining stuff to watch. Thereís Rodger himself, along with various otherís who have either worked with or been inspired by him, including Robert De Niro, Jack Nicholson, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino and many others.

    I picked up the Blu-ray by chance, the DVD would have sufficed. Whatís interesting about Rodger, is he started as an engineer, quit and became a movie maker. He didnít go to film school. Without Rodger, there (probably) would be no Jack Nicholson. Whatís amazing about Rodger is he had to adapt to an industry that was forever changing. He funded his own films, he didnít want to work for anyone. He succeeded. It reminds me a little of the games industry, 8bit, 16bit, 32bit etc - Forever changing, some adapt, some fall by the wayside.

    The one Corman film I can say I loved back in the day, before Iíd even heard of Rodger Corman, was Death Race 2000 (1975). I watch it years later than 1975. Even then, he was working with the likes of Sylvester Stallone, David Carradine.

    At the end of Cormanís World, thereís a film award ceremony. Rodger receives a life time achievement award. In the audience is George Lucas, Jack Nicholson to name a few. Quentin Tarantino hands over the award. Itís great to see.

    The most moving moment has to be Jack Nicholson breaking down during the interview. It seems he owns so much to Corman. Only during the interview did it hit home.

    Total recall - 8/10

    I really enjoyed it. Its silly but I loved the Fall thing and there are glaring plot holes such as the no zone raid and the impossibility of constructing the fall but I dunno I just liked it a lot.

    It's cheesetastic, but still a million times better than the new one. PS

    Looper, like Inception, is another example of a geek premature ejaculation

    Looper - 45 minutes of clumsy exposition to set up what's actually a pretty neat concept, which is then utterly squandered in the second half as the plot goes nowhere.

    Yeah, where've I seen that before?

    King Arthur 2/10
    It was the newer version.
    What the fuck was that? Completely ripped the legend to shreds, didnt bother with giving Arthur an excuse to fight and put that pouting, ugly bitch in it. Who the hell let this happen? Fight scenes were o.k.

    Dredd 7/10
    Gets extra points for Dredd never removing his helmet. It was just like the comic, liked the slo mo shit. Overall pretty good. Will look forward to the next one.
