    Love Liza (2002) 10/10

    10/10 for Philip Seymour Hoffman’s performance.
    I think it's still his best. Great film. The suicide note almost had me in tears.

    The shot of Wilson heading down the middle of the road at the end. He must have just done it for real.

    All of that Science Vs Religion Vs Crazy Alien Shit stuff throughout raises it above your average braindead blockbuster for me.
    And the last rioting sequences, where the classical music kicks in, followed by the destruction of bloody Earth are pretty darned effective in their bleakness.
    it's a guilty pleasure in this household as well, not helped by the fact neither of us can stand nic cage....

    Great Expectations (2012)
    6.5/10

    Good, not great. Lots of characters sacrificed for running time. Helena Bonham Carter miscast. Pacing a bit off. Looked great, good performances, core story still cracking.

    Stand By Me - 10/10. I wonder what River Phoenix would have achieved had he not died.

    Full Metal Jacket. First half 8/10, second half 7/10.

    It took a little while to get used to it being in 4:3. First time I've ever watched it properly as an adult, too, and it's almost 2 films, really. Pretty good, though the action sequences looked slightly, and understandably, dated.

    The latter part was filmed in the London docklands IIRC

    watched this last night and its not too bad if you can put aside the ideological sparring. The bit where the kids are lifted onto noahs ark by angels then go running towards the tree of life did make me a bit sick in my mouth though.

    It ends up like Adam and Eve Begins.

    I've not read the book so I can't answer that. I'm not sure if the book explains where Heathcliff went or what he did to make his money, but that wasn't in the film.

    Dark Shadows

    I think I must have a metaphorical boner for Tim Burton. The structure and pacing of this film is all over the place but I just enjoyed the hell out of it. I think it's the richness and detail of the characters and setting that he does better than most, and I'm even willing to forgive him for using his films as a virtual casting agency for his family and friends.

    Seeing this, it makes me think he should go the whole hog and do his own live action version of Scooby Doo. He pretty much dressed his missus as Velma in this anyway.

    Also does that tree feature in all of his films?

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

    The Brothers Bloom

    Finally got round to watching this, and was nicely surprised (not that I should be as I loved Brick and Looper).

    Ruffalo and Weisz are particularly good in this, with a nice turn by Robbie Coltrane too, and Adrian Brody was very watchable in this, though I've never really been a fan.

    Nice quirky story about two brothers who from an early age become con-men, and it's a fairly elaborate (and often messy) plot based around their last job to take Weisz for her money.

    The style of the film is hard to describe, but it definitely has a charm of it's own; it's not a fast-paced action flick, but isn't a slow-burn either, I'd definitely recommend giving it a watch.

    8/10

    Same as the old film then. That's only half the book! I think there was a TV adaptation that did the same thing as well.

    I can see why they choose to ignore the second half, but it slightly annoys me that thanks to Hollywood half of one of the greatest novels of all time has now been made irrelevant. They'll probably edit the second half out the book itself at some stage...

    The Red Baron (some European film in English with a weird cameo from Joseph Fiennes). I have no idea how much artistic license was taken with this film, but the original photos at the end and the fact that almost all the characters are real lends it a great deal of authority. Excellent, I thought. Even the CGI wasn't shit and the dogfights were genuinely exciting, you really got the impression of what it would feel like to throw yourself around the sky in a flimsy contraption of canvas and wood. (At the risk of sounding like a twat, go read Yeat's 'Irish Airman' to get a taste of the serene fatalism of the characters).

    8/10, catch it on iPlayer before it goes.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    They all do. I think the only version of the whole thing is the one with Ralph Fiennes.

    Haywire - 6/10 - Fairly entertaining film of the super female spy genre where a small female beats the crap out of various big men. About on par with Salt.

    Underworld: Awakening - 5/10 - The underworld films remind me a lot of the Resident Evil films really in that ultimately they are pretty shit but reasonable entertaining for what they are. Kate Beckinsale as ever looks great in skin tight rubber.

    That's bonkers though. Hey, coming soon a big screen adaptation of the Hobbit where they end the story after escaping the Misty Mountains! I mean as if, lololol... what?

    The Hobbit 2D. Great to be back in middle earth again, they have taken a few liberties with the story but I'm not too bothered about that. Looks like they will be expanding the Necromancer side of things which should be interesting. Good cast, great adventures and a bit of fun. 83%

    The Orphanage,

    This film really got under my skin. Great acting, beautifully shot and a bit of a tearjerker. 87%

    The Angel's Share - 8/10

    Fantastic film, quite a bit different to what I was expecting.

    For all that it's a great film I'm not really sure that anyone outside Scotland will be able to make out everything that is being said without subs. Can anyone confirm/deny this?

    Correct, and at Pinewood Studios.

    I worked there for 4 years and Stanley Kubrick's production office is based there.

    The Tall Man (US Netflix)

    Jessica Biel suffers for her art in this social commentary on poor unbringing. Interesting moral message.

    7/10

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Poor as in poverty, or poor as in inadequate/failed parenting?!

    I like the random indie stuff you get on Netflix.

    Platoon
    Probably the best war film of all time. It touches on themes such as stag times, lack of sleep, incompetent officers and conflict within the platoon. Topic a lot of civis wouldn't know about. The fire fights are what you'd expect during a guerrilla warfare contact.
