    Falling Down

    Without a doubt Schumacher's best film. Michael Douglas absolutely nails the lead.

    8.5/10

    ---

    The Skeleton Key

    Unscary. But I've got to admit that the ending is pretty ballsy for a mainstream horror flick.

    4.5/10

    ---

    The Hurt Locker

    Some pretty tense scenes... But what macho male posturing bullshit. :rolleyes:

    4/10

    People are bastard-coated bastards with bastard filling.

    You might have missed the point of Hurt Locker there chief. It's supposed to be about the macho male bullshit.

    Doesn't even make sense, 2 of the 3 leads are vulnerable as hell and Sgt James isn't exactly Marcus Fenix.

    @monkman76: It makes perfect sense, their general behavior turned them into unlikable characters. Except for the Specialist, him I liked quite a bit.

    Each to their own I guess but I thought Sanborn in particular was a superb character, I totally identified with him.

    One of my all time favourites, one of those films that if i catch it on TV, ill sit there and watch it to the end.

    Easily Douglas's best performance IMO and, like you say, easily Schumachers best, with maybe Phone Booth running it close.

    You've got 3 of my top 10 films there. That's not bad going :-)

    I've pretty much done my top 10 best & worst of 2012 and most anticipated of 2013. I'll stick it up here tomorrow sometime. Also, should it be one thumb up from Ebert? It used to be two but his counterpart kind of died didn't he? He could still give two thumbs up though unless he's lost a hand.

    Edit: Toying with the idea of seeing Les Mis tomorrow. I'm weary though. It looks kind of utter shit.

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

    Hobbit -

    Decent. Really happy to be back in the world again. I know the tone of the book is more light hearted, but i found the difference in between that and LOTR to be too stark. I found it quite weird. The fantasy side of it felt quite constrained in LOTR, or rather it had a purpose and everyone role was applicable to modern day life. (or too WW1). Hobbit was fantasy adventure and i like that, but it wasn't quite LOTR sort of depth and reality to the fantasy and probably too much wacky fantasy (which is odd as i like fantasty). I don't mind all the extra fluff, the Extended editions are popular and its clear people want it and to be invovled in the world and i don't mind them making a film to cater for that (As well as a studio making mega bucks out of it)

    Gollum, WOW, just lights up the screen, the cgi work into the eyes and the riddles segment, by far the best part of the film. Its enjoyable romp, just found the light hearted nature to be quite off compared to the LOTR. Way to many scenes though could have cut a couple out.

    7/10

    Zero Dark Thirty 10/10

    It's got spies, gadgets, electronic surveillance, espionage, CIA, black-ops, personality clashes, great actor performances and steals the great music from Syriana. If this was fiction it would be a great film. The fact that it's the hunt for Bin Laden from 2004 onwards gives it an emotional edge. Jessica Chastain is a certainty to win an Oscar. Fantastic film.

    Im a huge fan of Pixar's work but i just dont fancy watching Brave at all. I think its because of all them Scottish accents in it. I find the scottish accent really irritating.

    And i agree with the poster above me.
    Zero Dark Thirty is brilliant. 9/10.
    The middle section does drag a little but the first 45 minutes and the last 45 minutes are amazing.

    Bloody brilliant film.

    I also found Brave very disappointing. It started strongly enough and I was hoping for a fairly mature story about female emancipation that could explore the subject and go beyond simplistic "girl power" ideas, but it quickly abandons any such pretenses and becomes the story of a clumsy slapstick bear.

    The French Connection (1971)

    Very slow paced for modern sensibilities but when 'that car chase' kicks in the rest of the film gallops along.

    Gritty, realistic - I loved the contrast between the elegant well heeled european villain and the rough penniless cops.

    Gene Hackman is iconic in this - extremly physical role - he's always moving, stamping, chasing - not sure sometimes if the camera is following him or if he's pulling the fucker along after him by sheer force of kinetic will.

    Roy Scheider an inspired choice for Hackmans partner - an authoratative naturalistic buddy in an archetypal buddy film.

    The nhilistic view, the far from clean anti-hero - these themes have been done to death since the 70's and have had very much a renaissance in the last decade. But his was the cinematic progenitor of much that followed and would have been one eye-opening visual mindshit in the face on release.

    Seeking a friend for the end of the world

    I think this is supposed to be one of those quirky, life affirming films full of odd characters and surreal situations.

    I just thought it was irritating and bleak. Steve Carell has played this type of role too often and seems to be phoning it in and Keira Knightly was horribly annoying to the pint where their romance made no sense.

    Has a good scene in a roadside diner, but that was really the only highlight.

    Gangster Squad

    Generic? Yes. Revolutionary? No. Awesome? YES.

    Loved this film; everything from the cinematography, the soundtrack, the performances, the direction...all very, very strong.

    More action than I expected (in terms of fisticuffs, rather than gunplay) and one of the first scenes in the film with Brolin really sold this to me before the film really got going.

    Sean Penn was majestic as Mickey Cohen, a real menacing presence, Brolin was great as O'Mara, and Gosling as usual was great (I'm an unashamed Gosling fanboy). I didn't quite believe Stone and Gosling's scenes, but apart from that no complaints at all. Supporting cast was great too - very strong performances all round.

    I absolutely recommend this, it's a well put together film, with great action and pacing. The story isn't going to shock you, or give you much to think on, but I never expected, or needed that from this film.

    A lot of fun, and well worth a watch.

    Seeking a friend for the end of the world

    This is the type of tearjerker flick I loathe. I did have a laugh or two but the characters and the situations they found themselves in left me completely indifferent. Knightley's character annoyed the piss out of me.

    3.5/10

    The Lincoln Lawyer

    A must see for courtroom drama fans. Clever crime story, wonderful performances (McConaughey's ace in this one) and a nice little twist near the end. Thoroughly enjoyed it!

    The Impossible

    Powerful film based on a true story from the Indonesian Tsunami of 2004 on one of the Thai islands that was hit. Difficult to watch at times. If you have an ounce of empathy in you, you'll be smashed around in all directions emotionally.

    It has that rarest of qualities too - child actors that don't suck.

    Shame the musical score couldn't have been a bit more understated - the fact that this natural disaster caused misery on such a monstrous scale gives it more than enough depth without hollywood trying to make us 'feel on cue'...
