    Django Unchained - 8/10

    A little indulgent, but despite being a bit too long I didn't actually find myself not enjoying it for any great period so I can't say I minded it. It's certainly an interesting one though, a really odd mix of violence for pleasure and violence for displeasure. I could see me giving it a better score on a second viewing.

    I didn't. I watched the whole thing and give it a 6 a few pages back.

    I think he was referring to me. I did a fast forward on the final gunfight. That was all. I didn't say I'd gone through 90%.

    At first I was watching it as normal and then I had ended up on my iPad with the TV screen still in full view and the film running at normal speed. I did put in down a couple of times when the film caught my attention.

    What the hell does it matter anyway? If it would have clicked with me I would have sat there riveted. All my reviews are just what I though of it. If someone doesn't like Die Hard, Dredd or Kill List then it doesn't bother me in the slightest. They are not wrong or "cockbags".

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

    Felon

    This was really something! Didn't think I'd enjoy it at first as I'm not a big fan of Stephen Dorph or Val Kilmer, but I'm glad I gave it a chance. Very tense, wonderful performances, fairly unpredictable story. One of the best prison drama's I've seen in a while. Highly recommended!

    8,5/10

    Battleship Potemkin

    Sound was shit and it was in black and white so I couldn't see the colour - a sensible director would have filmed in colour.

    1/10

    Life of Pi

    Haven't seen it so...

    0/10

    I kid, I kid.. :)

    Killing Them Softly: 4/10

    Noir-ish and stylised thriller about a pair of guys who take down a card game. The whole thing is a metaphor for the recent financial collapse. The sauce is weak, and the metaphor is both nonsensical and heavy-handed. If you want to see a great film about the financial crisis, watch Margin Call instead.

    The Descendants - 5/10

    Really rather boring. I like George Clooney, and I really wanted this to be good because it was co-written by the guy who plays the Dean in Community, but I really felt this wasn't worth watching.

    I watched Ted on Friday night. If you don't like/hate Family Guy then avoid because it's exactly that kind of humour with it being a Seth McFarlane product. Personally I enjoyed it even though some of the jokes completely missed but I did find the weed batch names strangely hilarious - "Mind Rape", "Gorilla Panic", "They're Coming, They're Coming" and "This is Permanent". Plus Mila Kunis is amazing to look at so I rate this...

    I love the bit when he's driving to the party and the camera keeps jump zooming in on his face in time with the music :-D

    I love Ted.

    Still can't understand why they did that. The book, Cogan's Trade, was written in the 60s or 70s. Why stuff in the financial crisis shite?

    The Departed

    Brilliant and for such a long film you don't go away wishing 10 minutes were cut here or there. I really don't understand why anyone would rate the original (Infernal Affairs) above this as after watching both twice now it feels inferior in everyway (apart from maybe being set in a cooler place. Anyone disagree? 9/10

    Wreck It Ralph

    Fantastic opening but as soon as it goes into the Hero's Duty/Mario Kart worlds it goes rapidly downhill before picking up slightly at the end. Really feels like a missed opportunity - I came away feeling I'd watched a kids film and not a 'family' film - which is odd given the older demographic of proper gamers who would watch this. 5.5

    The Road

    Loved the book but seeing the story depicted in a film made it feel a lot grimmer. That bit with the humans trapped in the cellar made my skin crawl. I don't think I'm manly enough to watch these things. Bleak/10

    Midnight in Paris

    Watched it for the second time and now think it's right up there with his very best. I don't think I've seen a film which has managed to be so sentimental without ever verging on being cheesy. 9/10

    Apocalypto - 9/10

    First time I've watched it and loved it from start to finish. For a film with hardly any lines of dialogue it rattled along at a decent pace with no real lulls which was a pleasant surprise.

    Internal Affairs is what, one hundred minutes long?

    ... much more stylist, fast paced and most importantly, the end was shocking.

    How did The Departed go on to win the best picture (?) and best director at the Golden Globes when Infernal Affairs was never even nominated for the foreign film award?

    Nah, it just really runs me up the wrong way.

    Whilst I wholeheartedly disagree with your words regarding The Departed and Infernal Affairs, I do however stand by your side with Midnight in Paris ... I'd go as far as saying that it is one of Woody Allen's best film. The whole tale was a joy.

    Django (1966) - 7/10
    Fun violent western. Dubbing seemed terrible at first but I got used to it pretty quickly and just seemed to add to the fun.

    Hmm, not sure about this one! It was very complicated and I'm not sure I really understood it all. I've got a headache now!

    I'm watching it again tomorrow so will have to see if things become clearer!

    In order of last to first, watched Fargo last night.

    Fargo 9/10

    Very good, would have been an 8 if it weren't for Buscemi I feel.


    Childs Play 6/10

    Believe it or not I have never seen a childs play movie. My GF said I had to see it as it was a horror classic! Not so sure but very watchable. Quite funny by todays standards but I can see how it would have been a scary prospect at the time of release. BTW I don't consider 6/10 a bad score, above average


    DeathProof 8/10

    A little strange for the first 40mins but like most of Tarantino' work, I think thats why I like it. Kurt played it well I have to say


    Django 9/10

    Want to give it a 10 but I think very few films deserve a 10/10 so might have to get it on BluRay before I make that decision. I'm very aware that i'm strange :)

    Resident Evil: Retribution

    Let's try no scores at all from now on.

    The first thing you notice about this film when it starts is the utterly stunning picture and sounds quality. When you've got blu-ray.com reviewing this and saying it's not only reference quality, it's the best looking/sounding blu-ray in the history of the format, that's quite some praise. It really is that good. The fight sequence in the snow is the highlight in terms of picture and sound quality.

    As far as the Resident Evil films go, I'm one of the reasons why they keep making them. Up until now, they've been guilty pleasures although the third Mad Max type one was bad. This one is by far and away the worst of them all.

    In case you've not seen any of the other films, they're all explained at the start. It then kind of sets itself up as a video game with different levels and boss battles. This is also explained in case you don't know what the fuck is going on.

    One way to describe this film is 90 minutes of gunfire. The film is just a constant barrage of gunfights as Mila and gang progress through the levels in a number of set pieces. None of them are particularly good. A car chase through Moscow is the best of a bad bunch.

    The fight sequences are dull and uninteresting. The choreography is just bland and it's always the same old stupid music when they kick in. I don't there's anything in here that they've not done previously. However, in all the other films there were scenes that broke up the action sequences and (in their own way) moved the plot forward and at least tried to do something with the characters. There's none of that in this film.

    It is just 90 minutes of constant gunfire and this becomes boring very quickly. But my god, the picture and sound is absolutely outstanding!

    I haven't seen the latest Resi but I thought the sounds from the Resi films were actually quite good. Some Manson Goth Rock seemed to work.

    The newest Resi is just pure shit. The previous films at least had a fun scene here or there but the only redeeming feature of Retribution is that it ends.

    @alexm

    I don't know why, but The Departed seems like a jumbled mess of scenes, as if they only picked certain bits from IA, and then made shit up for the rest of it. The lil' individual cuts for the stars to ham it up, the car park finale, the forced love triangle, all unnecessary, but most importantly the arc of the character change in Ming/Sullivan is removed entirely, and that's what IA was all about.

    So, it's a poorly executed remake, that puts Matt Damon, charmless fucking prick, into what was the important character, and that it doesn't star Chinese Bob Hoskins Eric "Fat Sam" Tsang, so yeah, IA for me every time.

    I thought it was excellent. However, I do think that by simply toning it down just a tad it could have been one of the greatest family movies ever. In that respect it's a bit of missed opp.

    Primer: 6/10

    I loved the style of delivery and how it insists that you pay attention and keep up, though I think some plot points escaped me, as it was a little too easy to miss them as they developed. Reading an explanation of the film I definitely didn't fully keep up with what was occurring. As a first directorial effort it's an ambitious piece of work, but one I don't have much enthusiasm for poring over in minute detail.

    I actually found Primer to be better on the 2nd and 3rd viewings, as things make a lot more sense and you can spot all the little signs as the story unfolds.

    Is it possible to like both IA and The Departed? I do! I think they're both excellent. It'd be boring if The Departed was just the same.

    I do wonder if they'll wrong out a 'Departed 2' in spite of the ending.

    I didn't get on with Infernal Affairs. It felt rushed, like it was trying to cram to much stuff. I'd take the slower more boring Departed every time.

    I think a lot of it comes down to which one you see first.

    Infernal Affairs is much better. And its ending is much better than the Departed which, being Yankee, had to have some positive spin to it all.

    The Hunger Games - 8/10

    Finally got around to fancying a chance with this and I'm actually quite surprised at home much I enjoyed it as a piece of entertainment. The special effects were pretty poor and off putting but that aside I was totally on edge at seeing how this would play out at the end. That to me is a good showing of having interesting and convincing characters with a decent plot.

    Looking forward to the next later this year.
