    And yet I thought it was quite a lot better than either of the 'Titan' films.

    God they've made some shit 'epics' in the last few years.

    Which one?

    Because I won't accept any lower than 98% for the 1978 version.

    (In fact, I won't accept any higher than about 35% for the 2004 version so either way I'm affronted)

    Battleship

    It was pretty boring. I expected it to be a big, dumb, action-filled, typical Hollywood summer blockbuster, which it was, but the film was so utterly paint by numbers that I couldn't suck an ounce of enjoyment from it.

    I could from Brooklyn Decker, though. Holy crap! She gets a 100 out of 100.

    The movie gets 50.

    Comes a Bright Day 8/10 British thriller, understated and well played, a nice surprise.

    Flight 6/10

    Enjoyable enough with some really gratuitous Nadine Velazquez front bum at the start but a bit muddled. Elements of disaster movie, love story, addiction and courtroom drama all rolled into one. Worth a watch, no more, no less.

    Butter (US Netflix)

    A film about an adopted young girl who ends up in a butter carving contest against the wife of a former multi-winning champion at the town's annual contest.

    Doesn't sound that great at all but it's actually not that bad for the first half where it's pretty funny. It's got a decent cast (Jennifer Garner, Ashley Green, Olivia Wilde, Alicia Silverstone and Hugh Jackman) and although it's based around a butter carving contest, it's not really what it's about.

    Olive Wilde steals the show as a stripper who doesn't have a heart of gold. She gets all the best lines and also gets to have a lesbian scene with Ashley Green, Most of the humour and 'good stuff' is in the first half of the film.

    The second half descends into the usual schmaltz and then some. About the time both Olivia and Ashley are no longer needed and are only in the film for fleeting moments. That's probably just a coincidence though.

    Overall the film is something a bit different from what I usually watch. It's perfectly watchable and at times very funny. Although it does retain some of this humour in the second half of the film, it's probably not really worth watching unless your a big fan of Olivia Wilde.

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

    Argo 9. Excellent, very tense and I enjoyed it so much more because I didn't know the story but knew it was from a true one.

    Now either flight or drive for 3rd time...

    The only thing that I found wrong with that film was Denzel sucking his teeth constantly like they were about to fall out.

    The thing I found wrong with that film was everything after the crash.

    Argo. Simply brilliant. The feel of the period is completely spot on, and Affleck really is a superb film maker. Weird, I used to totally dislike the fella and his movies.

    Mr Affleck is turning into a superb filmmaker. I have yet to see Gone Baby Gone but I've read a lot of good things about it. Seems as though a lot of people here like it.

    Not long till he shows up again in Terrence Malick's To the Wonder which looks magnificent.

    Curious Case of Benjamin Button

    Not seen it before, really enjoyed it although not much seemed to actually happen at any point through the film.

    What annoyed me was that it is slated as a PG13+ so I watched it with my lad and other than a couple of bloody scenes all was going well. Until Benjamin turns into a kid and throws the F-Bomb around in one scene right towards the end of the film.

    Very petty fault and probably my own fault for sticking with it but a hearty 6/10 for a tale that sort of told a 3hr story and ended up being the short-story that it originally was.

    Oh, but Tilda Swinton - phwoar.

    @beastmaster definitely watch Gone Baby Gone mate. It's quite hard going but very very good.

    Tilda Swinton is dual gender. Surely?

    Ummm, I'm guessing no. Although in her case I could probably overlook such an issue.

    The Thing (original)

    Creepy, disgusting and hilarious all in one!
    Also, Kurt Russell!
    I will never forget the husky scene.
    However, from its status as one of the top horror movies of all time, I expected a bit more.

    I think part of the failure is mine - I'm a bit late to the party with iconic films like The Thing and Alien (I like Alien better). They've influenced pop culture & cinema so much that seeing them now takes away some of the impact.

    7/10

    Skyfall - 8/10

    Lovely to look at, but nowhere near living up to the hype. Didn't feel like a Bond at all to me - far too much of a focussed plot around M with none of the mystery and conspiracy of any of the classic movies. I mean.. no secret volcano bunkers! Really! That said, it was fun, in a Die Hard 4.0 kind of way. And now M has gone, they can get back to the proper stories again.

    Also couldn't stand the abysmal acting from Eve Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) - she seemed weak and very out of place, almost like she'd stepped right out of Holby City to join the Skyfall cast at the last minute. Maybe more at home in Doctor Who than Bond. Definitely no chemistry between her and Craig, felt forced and awkward.

    Brave - 7/10

    Felt a little more Dreamworks than Pixar, but still in the upper echelon of computer-animated movies. Not enough chortles for me, but the GF certainly seemed to like it. Perhaps she wants to be a ginger princess?

    I concur, but couldn't really tell you why....

    Just something about her, especially in that film.

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

    FYI, Carpenter's Thing is not technically "the original" as it's a remake of The Thing From Another World (oft referred to as simply 'The Thing').

    It is an amazing movie. I really need to see it again!

    Why look, it's a blog:

    Hotel Transylvania

    Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack) keeps Pixar honest. Brilliant.

    I enjoyed it more than my daughter because it's very reference heavy.

    And thankfully Adam Sandler doesn't sound like Adam Sandler so you can eventually enjoy it.
