    As with everything, the comics are better than the anime. Same with ghost in the shell.

    The first appleseed anime is OK, the other ones look absolutely gorgeous but are completely retarded in terms of story.

    What is a bloody good film is Ninja Scroll. I had seen it years ago but pretty much forgot all about it until last week when I found it in my flatmates collection. Brilliant film, easily one of my favourite animated films.

    Barry Lyndon. Kubrick period film (fops and frockcoats and duelling) shot entirely without studio lighting, he had to invent a new camera for the indoor candle lit night shots. It creates a visually unique and beautiful film, but one which is given to too much static inaction due to the camera apparently not being able to move. The story is as grandiose, arbitrary and rambling as all of Thackeray, and the film makes a good fist of bringing the core of the novel to the screen without dicking around with it too much. Leonard Rossiter is a wonderfully odd cameo as well, he cannot stop being a comedy actor even in a serious situation.

    An interesting film rather than an engaging one. 6/10.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Rock Of Ages

    Massive disappointment/10

    We've seen the stage show twice, and absolutely love it, so bought the DVD for Mrs Boo.
    Watched it the other night, thinking it was going to be great, and...

    ...it wasn't.

    Still trying to put my finger on what exactly went wrong with it, but I think the main thing is that while the stage show plays it for laughs, and everybody's very tongue-in-cheek, the film takes things a bit more seriously, and so characters like Tom Cruise's Stacee Jaxx, and his manager both come across as thoroughly dislikable, rather than camp fun.

    One to avoid.

    Safe House - 5/10 - Denzel Washington does that slightly deranged Denzel Washington character he pulls out from time to time. Mildly engaging thriller.

    War Horse – 4/10 Spielberg in full on schmaltz mode. It’s possible to predict every single thing that happens in the film before it actually happens as its entirely clichéd driven. It did have some quite good battles scenes though for the trench bits. Not so much the cavalry charge battle where they used thrusting swords to perform slashing attacks which I know most people are not going to spot but smacks of pretty poor historical research to replicate a particular type of fighting and then have them use their weapons incorrectly.

    The cabin in the woods – 6/10 – Quite entertaining though I thought it took a little took a little too long to break out of the clichéd horror story setting.

    The Dark Knight Rises – 5/10 – The worst of the Nolan films Batman films for me. I just thought it was quite dull and the dialog was really indistinct in places. I had real problems hearing what was being said in a number of scenes. I thought Bane was a pretty crappy villain and where did that voice come from exactly? A very odd choice.

    Immortals – 4/10 – Pretty dull stuff. Watchable enough if you like this type of film but it was entirely forgettable.

    The Thing – 5/10 – The new one of course. I liked the nods to the 1982 one but apart from those it missed the paranoia of that film and went a more conventional monster film route. The monsters motivations were also a little confusing. So it wants to head back to its ship at the end only when that iteration gets toasted it no longer wants to go to the ship when it could have easily wiped out what’s her face and got what it had previously wanted.

    Total Recall – 5/10 – Not that bad actually for a sci-fi action flick but nothing to raise it above average. The last shot also implies it did all happen at Recall (the Recall tattoo not being on his arm which is the last thing you see applied before we definitely know exactly what is real or not) which I am not sure hangs together that well given as that would then imply he is going to have fairly traumatic memories of his wife constantly trying to kill him. How would the person successfully integrate their Recall memoires back into their real life? It felt like a pretty cheap attempt at a twist.

    You are a pretty harsh critic, although I agree mostly with those I have seen as well. Question is, who makes you watch all those mediocre movies in the first place?

    There's a point at which 'burying yourself in work to help you cope with the tragic death of your wife' becomes 'risking your reputation by making a string of forgettable vanilla action films you are ill suited for'.

    Hope he comes round.

    Snow White and the Huntsmen

    Really quite bad. Blatant band-wagoning on Game of Thrones' success (and to an lesser extent LotR) and no substance whatsoever. Dismal performances from all the leads, especially Theron who seriously is just a pretty face, and whilst kind of being a fresh take on an old story, actually it wasn't really that fresh. Could certainly have been more imaginative.

    The seven dwarves were the only highlight, but even that may well have just been because the bar was so low by that stage (high and low dwarf puns unintended there).

    3/10

    Detachment
    I've been watching a lot of films on netflix recently and most were good this one really stood out. It's about a supply teacher working in a school full of shitty kids with shitty parents and more or less about the whole system and situation is shitty. Not an upbeat film but a good one.
    9/10

    Damn I just watched this based on your recommendations, and I sort of wish I didn't. Rather disturbing.
    Had its moments though, and that milf is pretty hot, didn't know she was a former porn actress had to look it up on the web. The main character I find creepy - a good choice of actress.
    A solid 8/10.

    Also dug up the old Judge Dredd with Stallone. Don't know the comic and never saw this, so had a lot of fun. Very predictable and corny, but still enjoyable. Stallone's 'wooden' acting is funny. No surprise this got a Golden Raspberry award. 7/10

    I tend to use the whole score range so 5/10 from me is not actually a really bad score. It's just average. If I managed to watch the whole thing and it kept me watching but was nothing special that would get a 5 from me. As for the film choices I was just catching up really on stuff I had missed over the Christmas break and just ended up watching a ton of mediocre.

    Actually I watched so many mediocre films over the break I forgot two.

    Transformers: some subtitle that I forget (the last one whatever that was called) - 3/10 - Really far far far too long and there was some very odd acting from that Shia bloke in places. It honestly felt like it could have lost 50% of its running time and still felt too long. The replacement for what’s her face was pretty tasty though. In truth I only watched it because I had flu and did not want to watch something I might enjoy.

    Sherlock Holmes and the something or other - 3/10 - Tony Stark falls through some sort of time tunnel into the Victorian age but due to the limitations of time travel and technology he cannot take his Ironman suit with him. Some randomly assorted action scenes then take place.

    Up

    A true delight. I did not tear up at all anywhere in the film, and it's also hilarious. Fun fact: Carl is voiced by Master Vrook from KotoR 2.

    Edit: actual score 10/10. I can't think of anything bad. Maybe a few niggles but very enjoyable overall.

    @glaeken Please don't tell me your favourite film is Trainspotting.

    @Goodfella Yeah I have blind spots for acting non-entities and overly long film titles attached to mediocre films.

    @Kanjin Trainspotting is not my favourite film though it's certainly better than anything I have watched over the Christmas break.

    Arrietty (Studio Ghibli)

    A good telling of the arrietty story. Infact its really understated, which kind of works in it favour, and like all other SG films, it really nails the messages it wants to convey.

    At times the dialouge is a bit wooden (more to do with teh script i think), and i wanted it break out into SG spectacle, which it never quite did - but the story doesn't really allow that.

    But by the time they conclusion come, i appreciated its understated nature.

    7.5/10

    And the whole arrietty/borrowers thing is perfect game world material, suprised no one as tried to tackle the story, could be great fun.

    Have seen that Transformers - Something dark moon in cinema in 3D. And yes about 1h before the movie ended I started praying it would be over in the next scene and the following and the following....
    The only interesting bit were the first 15 minutes or so because it was my first and so far only 3D movie I have seen. 15 minutes was the amount of time until the cool effect feeling wore off and gave room to the bland movie. Oh well, the things we do for socializing.

    The Time Machine - 1960

    Well it's a nice movie and just down my alley. I like time travel movies very much and this one is probably one of the archetypes of it. If you don't mind cheap sets, except the time machine which is amazing ;), then this could be for you. There is suspense and if you have no idea what you are in for then it has this, "I wonder what's coming next and where he's traveling to vibe."
    I've also seen the remake which comes with better sets but doesn't catch the magic of the old one at all.

    8/10 if you are the right audience.

    Spent some of the holiday watching cheap horror DVDs - forgotten most of them already but Orphan surprised me by being 'not bad', provided you're the sort of movie watcher who can enjoy the slightly higher class of ridiculous cheese this represents. At least I can remember it, unlike the others I watched which have slipped into the black waters of memory never to be seen again.

    7/10 - provided you have snacks and a careless disregard for logic to hand.

    I don't know how the deaf girl from Orphan can live with herself. All she had to do was say something in the beginning and a lot of tragedy could have been avoided.

    A View To A Kill - 2/10

    I've been working through the Bond films in order and fully intended to keep a running score of them but forgot to write them down after the first few. I only mention this as background as I can't imagine anyone ever watching this one as an isolated viewing, it's just fucking awful.

    The action scenes lose any impact because it's clearly a stunt double in every fucking scene. There's a moment where Bond high kicks a guy in the face at the bottom of some stairs and it's blatantly not Roger Moore. I know in hindsight people have criticised him for carrying on too long but surely someone must have thought a guy who can't do the most basic of action movie stunts should be fired.

    I can live with the campy nature of the previous (Moore) Bond films and even the massively over the top Moonraker but A View To A Kill is just a bad film, badly directed, acted and executed.

    The 2 points are for Christopher Walken doing the best job he could with the shit he was served. MORE POWER!

    I had to switch it off, it was so utterly abysmal. Makes Die Another Day looks like Goldfinger. Stunt double showed up every 10 seconds for Roger Moore.

    The Hobbit (second viewing) - 3D IMAX HRF - 7/10

    From a "very generous" 7/10 to a proper 7/10. I got used to the HRF very quickly and I kind of settled into the slow build-up, knowing it was coming.

    I also got to see the Star Trek preview and the new Man Of Steel trailer in 3D IMAX. Both were considerably brilliant.

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