    I have no problem with Superman flying, so long as he doesn't look like he's on bad wirework while he does it. Same goes for flying martial artists - sometimes it looks cool, sometimes it looks like an amateur production of Peter Pan.

    That's my issue really - not that they're flying, but that it looks crap.

    One of the things that Chris Reeve doesn't get enough credit for is the way he makes the flying believable in the Superman films. He does so many tiny little things to create the illusion. He makes what is really very basic blue screen work look cutting edge. Same goes for the wire work.

    Talented Mr Ripley - Caught it for probably the tenth time. Can't quite explain why I rate it so highly, I think the casting is flawless but Anthony Minghella's (RIP) directing always gets me. His films are so lavish and dreamlike - alongside the darker plot, it just works.

    9.5/10


    Dredd

    I came to this with absolutely no idea about the franchise which might explain why it left me completely cold. Was hoping for better given how many on here liked it - a few decent action scenes but that was about it for me. Turned off with half an hour left.

    4/10


    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

    Amazing cast and loved the set design. I'm so glad this fell into the hands of Studio Canal and not a US producer who might have taken the quintessential Britishness out of it. Control talking about the possibility of a mole whilst munching on his toast was great!

    9/10


    The Illusionist

    The animated magician one, not the non-animated magician one! Edinburgh and Paris both drawn amazingly and the plot has lots of nice little moments but I think it could have been cut by at least half an hour - it feels like a long-running time for a silent film.

    7/10

    @FutileResistor good point. Well made.

    I also agree with the as long as it looks good sentiment. I do think cthd looks good though. Lung GU hustle is even better.

    Wreck It Ralph

    Somewhat predictable, but it's by no means a run-of-the-mill kids' animation. It definitely is standard fare in terms of structure, plot etc., but the important stuff is the sheer inventiveness of it. I was delighted by the beautiful visuals, the countless references, the little details. (For example, the video game transit system, or the HUD on the helmet Ralph dons at one point.)
    The casting is inspired (even Sarah Silverman, who I'm not a fan of) and the whole thing oozes charm.
    Lasseter's involvement shows - this isn't Pixar, but it may as well be, down to the introductory short film. It's no Incredibles, but it certainly beats Brave.

    8/10

    Beautiful film! This rarely happens but the ending got me all choked up. From the same director, if you haven't seen it already: The Triplets of Belleville.

    O Brother, Where Art Thou?

    Another one of those movies that I could just watch over and over and over again.

    8.5/10

    The Last Winter

    Nothing spectacular but the eerie atmosphere does make it very interesting.

    6.5/10

    Korean drama/thriller/horror that basically the least you know about it, the better. Utterly brilliant, lovely scenery, some interesting direction and a very good cast.
    8/10

    The Chaser
    Another korean movie, this time from the action/thriller stable. Again, it's better you know as little as possible going into it, but it's funnier than many huge budget hollywood or UK efforts of late. Some brilliant comedy in amongst a quite serious and sick ideas.
    9/10

    re: Wreck It Ralph

    I've been underwhelmed by the trailers for it, but it did review extremely well. Looking forward to watching it just for the game references. Hopefully it's funny enough to add some weight behind the knowing winks...

    re: The Illusionist

    Brilliant, brilliant film. It ain't half depressing, mind.

    Why look, it's a blog:

    Hollywood could really do with trying to emulate rather than up the stakes/rip off asian cinema

    In related news, there is apparently a remake in the works.

    Ah that explains, I kept thinking about it whilst watching The Illusionist. I thought Triplets had a lot more to it, but then again I'm not one for overly depressing cinema so maybe that's why I didn't love The Illusionist.

    haha, why does that not surprise me. No way will they match it, the chemistry in it is really sweet, and the way the film moves at such a pace...I just can't see it being anything but fail.

    Django-9/10


    What a great film this was. Some great dialogue as well which is pretty standard for a tarantino film. Only reason its not a ten is beacuse I felt it was about 1/2 hour too long

    Life of pi- 10/10

    I read the book a few weeks ago and loved it but the film is nothing short of breathtaking. I actually found it very spiritual and uplifting. One of my fave films in a long time

    The Thin Red Line - 8/10

    Really liked this. The only other Malick I've seen is The Tree of Life, which I really didn't like aside from Jessica Chastain's performance, so I was fairly apprehensive about this. It's sort of like a filmed version of an epic war poem. Equally beautiful and horrifying, with a terrific cast including the world's most versatile actor Woody Harrelson (and according to Wiki performances from guys like Martin Sheen and Gary Oldman were totally cut!).

    There isn't really a big plot (some American soldiers are fighting against the Japanese on a Pacific island during WW2, and that's basically it), but it suits it fine. It's about the characters, nature, and the horrors of war.

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

    It has all been said before, great movie, Christoph Waltz is superb. Though it does have the worst attempt at an Aussie accent ever.

    Such a good film, and the most accessible film Takashi Miike has ever made (Audition, Ichi the Killer, Visitor Q).

    I honestly thought he was trying to do South African for a while. It's amazing.

    Battleship 1/10

    Fell asleep after the incredibly boring first 30 minutes that seemed to go out of the way to make every character an unlikeable American stereotype. Woke up, saw some explosions and turned it off.

    Maybe I'll give it another go over the weekend.

    West Is West

    East Is East sequal and this time the majority of the film is set in Pakistan. Slightly more serious than the first with the occasional touching moment, but generally not as enjoyable as the first. If you liked East Is East you'll probably like this, but imo not as much.

    It was Australian?? Yeah I thought he was going for South African too, and that the other guy with him was Australian. :/
    Whatever it was, I think it could be the worst attempt at an accent an actor has ever attempted.. Ever.
    And that includes Dick van Duke and Don Cheadle.
    (I'll leave the auto correct, it makes the name even more fancy)

    Django Unchained 9.5/10. Absolutely fucking loved it. Waltz was superb, so was Foxx, so was DiCaprio. Didn't want it to end but left the cinema with a stupid big grin on my face. Ace

    Les Miserables 6/10. Beautifully acted but I found it a bit empty. The singing started to grate, I didn't like the cheeky cockney chappie and it seemed like a lot of fuss over a pissy little barricade in a huge city. Wish I'd spent the time watching Django again instead.
