    Yeah I thought it was bollocks mostly. Aliens on ice with far less menacing baddies and the increasingly hilarious Liam Neeson being increasingly hilarious. Watchable, but really nothing special. 6 is fair.

    Get the gringo

    Not what I was expecting when I saw the trailer. I thought it looked a bit like payback at 1st. Nothing like it but still a good watch

    7/10

    Hobbit 1: I liked it. Im an absolute sucker for lore and mythology so all the extra guff suited me just fine.

    Its just really nice to be back in that world again, all the visual and audio cues, its like being wrapped in a warm blanket.

    On the downside the opening does drag somewhat and it is a shame that they have taken a kids book and made it play significantly older but it doesnt pull the rest of the film down.

    Also, I watched it in 2d, so it looked great. (on a side note, our local cineworld seems to be shifting back to primarily 2d showings where possible. Seemingly the audiences are actively avoiding 3d now).

    8/10

    Looper 6/10.

    It starts out as a fast paced sci-fi film with some good ideas, then the farm becomes the main setting and the movie becomes really dull.

    The ending was shit too.
    I can agree with that, it was a let down.

    I've just watched taken 2 and that was also a let down.  It seemed to be missing everything that made the original so good.

    Excision 2/10

    Hollyoaks with some gruesome scenes tacked on. A waste of time.

    Quite a good thriller, although the ending was a little obvious.

    Ok, it had a couple of moments that made me wince.

    Seven Psychopaths - 8.5/10


    The new film from the writer/director of In Bruges. It's not quite as good but it's a fresh, original film that's very funny and violent.

    The plot is about dognappers who end up napping the wrong dog. One of the characters (played by Colin Farrell) is a Hollywood writer who's doing a screenplay called Seven Psychopaths.

    In much the same way as In Bruges, this is a very hard film to categorise easily. It's also pretty difficult to say who's the best actor in this as everyone gives it there all and they are all exceptional. Although Sam Rockwell gets the most laughs.

    The script is sharp, witty and laugh out loud funny in a lot of places. It's also really quite dark and violent in places, so it's certainly not an all out comedy.

    If you liked In Bruges then you'll enjoy this. This is the sort of film where Colin Farrell excels and not the utter garbage that is the remake of Total Recall. However, if he has to make a film like Recall to do a number of smaller films like this then the trade off is worth it.

    The exploding head scene is worth the trip to the cinema alone.

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

    Slither - 6/10

    Utter B movie toss with Nathan Fillion. Very Stuart Gordon-esque with schlock horror effects and plenty of one-liners. Not a good film by any stretch of the imagination but certainly watchable.

    Basically The Jacket with different actors and in a different place. I like.

    7/10, 8/10 if you haven't seen the other one.

    Batman: Dark Knight Rises

    Loved it at the cinema. Thought it was great because it focussed more on the character of Batman/Waine rather than the combat and gadgets, undeserving of a lot of the criticism and only just slightly inferior to the Dark Knight, mainly due to no Joker/Ledger.

    Watched it on Blu-Ray last night. Boring. Had trouble staying with it, found it all very dull, Bane was just a dull enemy with a ridiculous voice, more of its foibles became noticeable and irritating and the ending still annoyed me (still think it should have ended on Alfred nodding and smiling at the camera and then...roll credits).

    More to the point, the audio is all over the place. Some dialogue is inaudible, some of the explosions lack any punch at all, some of the fight scenes are ridiculously loud (punches were louder than some explosions) and more to the point, no matter how quietly I turned it down, Bane's voice was fucking ridiculously loud.

    I was obviously either far more forgiving the first time round, it suffers badly from not being on the big screen, or it just doesn't hold up to a second viewing. Or all three.

    4/10 (down from an 8).

    Can't remember the name but a zombie film in which dennis hopper basically owns the surviving humans in a tower block, just like tenpenny tower in fallout 3.

    Its an engaging and fresh approach to the zombie thing.

    Do zombies breathe though? If so the whole thing falls apart and warrants a 3/10. If they can't then its a solid 8/10

    Jack Reacher - 7/10

    Better than expected, it's grown on me during the day since I've had time to distance myself from Cruise, and instead reflect on and appreciate the strengths of the story and the unusually refreshing and satisfying conclusion.

    While watching it I have to admit I was getting a little too hung up on the fact that Cruise has sculpted it into a "Look at how ace and sexy and not short at all Tom Cruise is still" movie, and that there's a bit too much 'humour' which at times sits uncomfortably within the story arc (the bathroom scene, argh...).

    Additional credit for the crunching car chase.

    The Hunter

    Willem Dafoe is asked to hunt the Tasmanian Tiger.

    I may be drunk, but this is the best film I have seen in my life.

    Prometheus - 8/10

    Really enjoyed this, surprised after all the negativity. The slow pace allowed it to breathe and drip with atmosphere, but there were plenty of gripping and tense memorable scenes too. Looked genuinely phenomenal in 2D on my Panasonic GT50 plasma too. One for the collection.

    Total Recall 2012

    Thoroughly forgettable, much like the first movie but without the comedic quotes. And once again it's yet another movie where Ms Beckinsale fails to get her jugs out. I give it 50%.

    The Hobbit 3D HFR Version 7/10

    Ok the film as a start was pretty good, felt like putting on some old comfy slippers.

    But the 3D "yet again" added nothing and i fucking hated the 48fps HFR.

    The best way I can think to describe the quality of the 48fps image in The Hobbit is this: It looks like an ’80s-era home video shot by someone who happened to be standing around on set while The Hobbit was being filmed.

    It made everything looked like an epsiode of BBCs Merlin. It just made the fake look more fake. Instead of the romantic illusion of film, we see the sets and makeup for what they really are.

    Next time I'm 2D at 24fps

    The Brothers Bloom - 85%

    Charming con caper from the director of Brick and Looper. Warm, stylish, funny, candyfloss. I really enjoyed it. Probably perfect for people who would like to like Wes Anderson films but find them too awkwardly stylised.

    P.S. must be comfortable with Adrien Brody's nose.

    You mean Total Recall? The original is better, yeah, but only marginally. The hammy script means I spent most of the film cringing. And Arnie doesn't do hand-to-hand combat well, he was too bulky for it. The scene where he decks his mate and the henchmen after leaving Recall is about as graceful as watching a cow walking on ice.

    @localnotail I adored The Brothers Bloom when I saw it. I agree with each of your adjectives but would also add "charming".
    Was a film that could have been an hour longer for all I cared because I was just enjoying being with the characters.

    May have given me a slight man crush for Mark Ruffalo...

    9/10? Maybe 10/10 for me. Was just perfect for my frame of mind when I watched it, I think, so honestly wouldn't be able to think of any ways it could have been better.
