    I'm glad to see that the hobbit is the worst thing since Hitler.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Killer Joe

    Wow - what a film to start the year in with. Bit of a smack in the face and running in the opposite direction to all the good cheer emanating from friends and family on Jan 1st.

    That said - this is a family film to be fair just not your typical family film fare!

    Matthew McConaughey is brilliant in this. I hope he manages to follow this up quickly with some more deserving roles on the back of it.

    The brief road/bike scenes make me want to go back and check out Friedkins earlier stuff.

    Haven't watched The French Connection for decades. Feel like starting 2013 with a bit of 1970's for some reason...

    The Lord Of The Rings Trilogy (2001 - 2003)

    Epic does not accurately describe the sheer scale and emotional whirlwind of the 3 films. This is story telling at it's very best with some great casting.

    This film has enough man love to make the most heterosexual man homosexual.

    10/10
    I always considered myself heterosexual, but phwooar!! Aragorn is a stud. Even Frodo has his moments with that frilly hair. And that Elf guy that isn't Orland Bloom, hot stuff! Lol

    Taken 2 - 6/10

    Without wanting to resurrect the whole Taken debate that seems to pop up every 10 pages or so I'll just say I enjoyed this and move on. ;)

    Expendables 2 -6/10

    I think I prefer the first one, even though this has Norris and more Arnie and Willis. Van Damme is okay. More Charisma Carpenter may have saved it a bit.

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

    The amazing spider man

    Pea head made a good spider man. Everything else is bad. Dull as fuck story and possibly the shittest bad guy in any super hero film ever. Shit cgi goomba.

    Killer Joe (2011) 8/10

    For reasons unknown, or possibly reasons based on stuff I had read on the internet, I went into Killer Joe with expectations. Expectations of something really quite shocking, dark, even gritty. Killer Joe is none of those things.

    I liked Killer Joe for what it was - Comical. Joe himself is well played, in fact the whole cast does a stellar job. The film looks good, sounds good - I watched the Blu-ray. Somehow I expected more from the story. Maybe I expected something a little more serious, with more tension, something a little more like the excellent No Country For Old Men. The film is definitely worth a watch.

    One last note. The moment with the chicken leg, I really donít know what all the fuss is about. Itís really quite hilarious, all thanks to Killer Joeís performance.

    If you want Black humour, you could do worse than see Black Sheep (2006) directed by Oliver Rihs. Now thatís funny!

    Dredd (2012) 8/10

    I was not expecting much from this after the Stallone one from the 90s, but was pleasantly surprised! Nice, dark and violent, like the comic book!

    Life of Pi (2012) 7/10

    Never read the book, so did not know what to expect. Story was interesting enough, nice and colourful.

    Skyfall (2012) 7.5/10

    Never really liked Craig as bond, but Casino Royale was a good movie. I like the dark, gritty Bond (like the dark, gritty Batman).
    Probably on par with Casino Royale. -1 point for Adele song though.

    Tetsuya Nakashima's Confessions (2010) 10/10

    Casually requested this as an xmas pressie, after hearing some online word of mouth that it was worth watching. Wasn't overly enthused about watching it in a hurry, as it's (criminally) marketed as standard horror fare. The synopsis doesn't give any indication that it's anything more... and neither does the cover, particularly. Only the review quotes give any indication of how remarkable this film is.

    So i was all the more stunned to then see one of the most compelling pieces of film i've ever seen. Especially the opening 30 minutes, i couldn't look away. Couldn't miss a single line. The rest of the film matched up to the opening as well, and i didn't guess a single one of the masterful twists. Bloody excellent.

    Not for the subtitle phobic, though... very dialogue based.

    God i love Asia extreme!

    Kings & Queen (2004) 9/10

    Good film. Long film. Mathieu Amalric is excellent, Iíve started to watch more films with him in. To be fair, the entire cast do a superb job. As serious as the story is at times, it can also be very funny. Seeing Ismael (Mathieu Amalric) taken to a psychiatric ward against his will, and what happens during his stay is hilarious. This contrasts with Ismaelís ex, Nora (Emmanuelle Devos) who has to deal with her dying father, and is soon to be married for the third time. Towards the end of the film Ismael and Noraís lives once again intersect.

    Whatís impressive about the film is that fact it moves along at a fair old pace as it has so much story to tell. The 2hrs 26mins soon passes.

    Really nice off-beat romantic comedy. Very good performances all round and beautifully shot.

    Mesrine: Killer Instinct (2008) 10/10

    If you are not French and donít mind subtitles then I can 100% recommend Mesrine, as its excellent. The action, acting etc is superb. I canít remember the last time I got to see an action film where the heistís are handled as convincingly.

    I happened to stumble across the DVD in Blockbuster Video for £4 and it was the box set that includes Mesrine: Public Enemy Number 1 which is Part 2 to Mesrine: Killer Instinct.

    @dominalien - Haven't seen Bloodlust yet. And absolutely yes, if it were a rather objective rating I'd give it a 5/10 or 6/10. But with the english dub which was somehow charming yet not very professional in the modern sense it worked great for me.

    I tried to get my hands on some Studio Ghibli movies and some of the cyber punk anime genre but I have to say that the older stuff on average is more to my liking.

    I watched Ghost in the Shell stuff which is very good, I got Akira but didn't watch it yet and I got my hands on Texhnolyze which is great if you like it a bit weird.

    Tried Mardock Scramble and although the violence and some of the setting is very adult (teenage prostitution) the overall writing and targeted demographic feel more like 15 year olds. Strange, haha.

    John Dies At The End. 7/10.

    Does the best it can with a severely limited budget. Loses a lot from the excellent book, but captures the spirit of it perfectly well. Coscarelli manages not to fuck it up, Clancy Brown has a nice little role, and the two leads do okay.

    The original Appleseed is not bad, it's by the same guy behind Ghost In the Shell.

    The Hobbit: 6/10

    Could have cut out the useless filler and made the movie an hour shorter. When it followed the book it was generally quite good, though there are dangerous levels of twee and silliness (which is pretty faithful to the novel I guess). Gollum scene was ace.

    Shudder to think how much padding there will be in the 2nd and 3rd movies since they're about halfway through the story by the end of the first.

    The Imposter


    Unbelievable documentary about some 23 year old french guy passing himself off as a 16 year old American boy who had been missing for 3 years. To the boys family. The boy looks completely different to him as well. Yeah.

    9/10

    Thanks for the info. But are you referring to the 1988 anime or the 2004 cgi movie or its 2007 sequel or the 2011 series?

    Edit: original like in origin, so the 1988 one I presume ...

    Total Recall (2012)

    A pleasant surprise. Taken as a straight-forward action sci-fi romp, it was competent, well designed and visually stunning. The last half hour was a bit of a stretch too far with the lead getting captured and escaping way too many times.

    I was also pleased it wasn't a direct remake of the original, although there were many nods back to it - two weeks lady being a particular favourite.

    Would have been a solid 75% if it wasn't for the lens flares. Dear God, please let the lens flares stop.

    70%

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    I've owned a copy of the original Appleseed for years and it is very good. Make sure you don't watch he newer version though, it is terrible.

    What did you make of the allusions to the brother possibly killing the boy the imposter was impersonating?

    I dunno. It's a tough one to call, but if I was pushed on it I'd say they did it. Something just not right about the whole thing.

    did a quick search on youtube and CGI is not really my thing. So in conclusion, the 1988 one looked good while the other stuff did not with the XIII one being the worst.

    In my short research I also stumbled on Serial Experiments Lain which looks promising as well.

    Yeah that's the one, as L Franko points out, the newer ones aren't so great.

    Edit:
    I didn't think that much of Serial Experiments Lain, I can't remember it that well but I think it had some decent ideas but way too much filler and a slow meandering pace plus a load of philosophical/existential stuff that didn't really make a lot of sense. If you're still interested though you can have my copy, I don't plan on re-watching it :p

    Appleseed was out in '88? Christ on a bike does that make me feel old. Always loved Vampire Hunter D and Akira. Ghost in the Shell is good.
