    I too really enjoyed John Carter.

    I lurk. If I've spoken to you, I'm either impassioned, or drunk.

    John Carter was utter wank.

    Closest I've ever come to walking out of the cinema early.

    Hated, adored, never ignored.

    I just thought it was really really boring. I switched off after an hour.

    I seem to have an ability to squeeze some enjoyment from sci-fi, no matter how poor it is, but even so, I thought it had merit beyond my quirky viewpoint.

    Sorry for the thread hijack, but I thought a few of you guys may be interested in watching a short film I just finished.

    It's an eight-minute mockumentary called Interview with a Ghost, and stars Eurogamer's very own Martin Taylor in the lead role.

    You can watch it here:

    I'd give it an 8/10, natch.
    He'd make a good Arthur Dent.

    The Woman In Black

    Good old blighty shows those yanks who have lost their way how to do a ghost film. Excellent and creepy film, somewhat by the numbers in it's formula for sure but an intriguing ride and made my blood run cold a few times.

    Young Mr Potter puts in a great effort. I would say he is slightly let down in that sadly he still looks like young Harry so while he does the job well he is simply unbelievable as a grieving widower lawyer at times and in truth maybe miscast in this role but his does do a really good job other than that so it is forgiveable for the most part.

    Good plot, well shot, good cast A real nod back to ghost stories of old. Interesting ending to. Loved it.

    Expendables 2

    I like the bit where they shoot people.

    7/10

    Brave

    Wasn't quite what I thought it was going to be. I somehow was under the impression if was going to be a bit like Mulan or something but it was actually quite original (well, in some ways, plenty of extremely generic CGI Scottish barbarian types that are really feeling like a bit of a cliche now).

    Pretty good. Not quite vintage Pixar and it was all pretty predictable and by-the-numbers, but fun enough and zipped along nicely. One of those that's a "great kids' film" but doesn't quite transcend to being a "great film" like some do, which is usually what I expect of Pixar.

    7/10

    Hugo (3D) - 7/10

    Beautiful film, just a bit boring for the first hour. Picks up in the second half though.

    I heard Kermode review the new Tinkerbell movie(which my daughter *loves*) a few weeks ago and it pretty much applies to brave too. He said he couldn’t understand why it was getting a cinematic release as its basically just anaesthetic for kids, a DVD title to stick on on a Sunday afternoon to transfix them for 90 minutes while you have a nap, and it’s the same with Brave.

    Pixar movies have always been sweet, broad stories with something for everyone. Brave was purely a kids film and as such it was clichéd and massively predictable. It was a really good kids film and it certainly holds her attention more than something like cars 2, which she just ignores but you wouldn’t choose to watch it if your kids weren’t there, which you cant say about most of their back catalogue. Its, really, their first proper ‘Disney’ movie, with a princess they can stick on every bit of merchandise possible and add to a parade float.

    It felt more like a Cars for girls to me. You could almost see all the potential merchandise as the film went on.

    Brave is a little better than it is talked about, but it suffers by comparison to Up and WallE

    I didn't dislike it but you couldn't help but feel that How To Train Your Dragon and Tangled had done similar ideas better.

    It's not like we were comparing it to La Strada or something. The reviews were essentially "pretty good, not as good as Wall-E" which is fair, and didn't really deserve the "you're a bunch of pretentious wankers" card.

    Trouble with that type of kids film now is the main character is always an annoying huffy teen.

    I randomly caught 'Stupid Crazy Love' last night on Netflix. I really enjoyed it, mostly because they didn't go the easy route and make the teenage boy an annoying huffy twat.

    (Not that it's a kids film, thats just how my brain works)

    Wait Until Dark - Fantastic film, really enjoyable.

    Seconds - for about 20 minutes i had no fucking clue what was going on, then it all opened up and was a really good film.

    both get 9/10

    fuck all this modern cinema shit, watch some old classic films. some of the cinematography in the opening minutes of Seconds is amazing.
