    Tower Heist

    Plodded along, zero laughs, didn't care for the characters.

    5/10

    Safety Not Guaranteed

    Quite enjoyed this whimsical, indie, light hearted rom com. The is he/isn't he mental keeps you guessing right till the end.

    8/10

    Argo - 6/10

    Adequate in every sense. The acting is fine, the directing is fine, everything is fine. You'll have a decent enough time watching it, but I'm baffled as to how it received such rave reviews and won so many awards. Ho hum.

    Jeff, Who Lives at Home - 8/10

    I didn't really know about this when I found it, but the cast of US TV sitcom actors didn't fill me with confidence. However, it's a brilliant little movie. Jason Segel plays Jeff, a 30 year-old slacker still living at home with his mother (played by Susan Sarandon). Ed Helms plays his somewhat more successful but twatty brother.

    My only complaints are that it's a bit too short (it's only 83 minutes) and the storyline with the mother just kinda stops and as a result it feels a bit superfluous and only there to get them all on the bridge at the end.

    I was definitely a bit misty-eyed at the end too. Definitely try and catch it if you haven't seen it.

    Moonrise Kingdom - 9/10

    Fantastic, and the best Wes Anderson flick I've seen (so better than The Royal Tenenbaums, The Darjeeling Limited and The Fantastic Mr Fox). The kid actors are great, and everything about it is nigh-on perfect. The only minor issue is that Bruce Willis felt like a little bit of a miscast. Very funny and charming apart from that, though.

    Oh, I watched The Master as well. Much like There Will Be Blood after the first watch, I'm not really ready to have a definitive opinion on it yet. TWBB became one of my favourite films after the second watch though!

    My instinct is that it's a very good film but not quite up there with Blood. Phoenix, Seymour Hoffman and Adams are all brilliant but it's kind of lacking a big performance like the one from Day-Lewis that towered over Blood. Pretty sure there's not as many iconic moments in The Master either.

    Max from stenders new missus with the fish lips gets her tits out (they're better than her face) but ultimately its a story that's been told in 3 movies previous, and this one has a twist different to the last 3.

    Jessica Bile; she used to be fit; in an incoherent story about abduction. Dross.

    I watched Robin Hood last night and I have to say, it wasn't as bad as I'd been led to believe. It does sag in places and the last half an hour has some ridiculous moments in it especially Marion and Friar Tuck being in the final battle and in the final battle I don't really understand why they didn't just stay on the cliff and lob arrows at them. They weren't exactly going to get up those massive cliffs very easily, were they? but for the most part there wasn't too much incongruity or moments that annoyed me.

    Crowe's accent was pretty funny through much of it as it went from grumble core, mancunian, Welsh, Scottish and standard English. For the most part he did pretty well and I enjoyed his band of merry men.

    So, it was an origin story, are there going to be further Robin Hood films or did the floppiness of the film negate such an eventuality?

    Thanks for the tips mate.
    I watched Unforgiven the other day. Man what a belting film. And i mean belting. I didn't want it to end.

    Clint Eastwood is a right badass. I loved the chemistry between him and Morgan Freeman. And the ending where clint nails them guys in a bar and confesses to how evil he really was. And the part where he says "Im gonna walk outta here and anyone who tries to shoot me is gonna die" or something to that effect. and then he just rides slowly out of town. Man that was epic.

    I was constantly wondering during the film "was Eastwood as evil as what people say he was? Did he kill women and children? And his speech at the end was biblical.
    What an amazing western. Im slightly ashamed i haven't watched it until now actually.

    I have The Wild Bunch here which i am just about to watch and will definitely watch them 3 films you named as your favourites over the next couple of days.

    Thanks for the reccomendations. And I really must watch True Grit too. That does look brilliant.

    I may be becoming a western fan :) Its great when being 32 years old you suddenly discover a new genre of film you like. Ive seen about 6 westerns this week. Every one of them highly enjoyable.
    So many films to watch, so little time.
    No problem. :)

    Don't forget Yojimbo and the Dollars Trilogy. Yojimbo is currently haggling to work its way into my favourites list.

    Also, There Will be Blood. Its not a typical western at all, it probably isn't one but it has very much to do with the way the old west was run and how it was literally build on top of blood, guts and oil.

    And any film by P.T.Anderson is nothing short of brilliant anyway.

    I just finished reading Blood Meridian. Reckon that would make for a pretty unconventional Western.

    Oh well, one can hope for something not-awful.

    Though I guess much of the appeal of McCarthy is more in the prose, which wouldn't really translate to film unless you had the Kid reading out a monologue or something.

    No Country for Old Men and The Road are both pretty good (although the latter kind of pointless). But Blood Meridian strikes me as unfilmable in a similar way to AtPH.

    Taken 2- Shit
    Didn't mind the first one, but this one was utter bollocks. There were 2 fights, each with 1800 different angle cuts in their one minute runtime. And for the other 88 minutes Neeson was either counting to himself, or his Daughter was throwing grenades in the streets, so that Neeson could incorrectly calculate how far away she was by using the speed of sound...

    Yeah, I suppose you could just film the story and make something decent out of that. But it still probably wouldn't be a good adaptation, as the story is disjointed and not really the point anyway. It could be a good film, but pointless.

    Heh, but I do like to wonder who would be cast as Judge Holden. If they resurrected Marlon Brando and made him shed a few kilos, possibly.

    Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins - 6.5/10

    I saw this at the cinema back in '85 when it was called Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous. Loved it then and I think it's a decent film now.

    Despite having a bit of flat direction from Guy Hamilton, a couple of the action set pieces are good. The one with the dogs chansing after him and the Statue of Liberty in particular.

    The banter between Fred Ward and Joel Grey as his Korean trainer is good too.

    Not the greatest film ever but one that could probably do with a remake if anyone ever gave a shit.
    OMG.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. I've been trying to remember this movie's name for YEARS. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
    Glad to help :-)

    The Pink Panther (1963) - 8/10

    What a superb films this is. Blake Edwards can do great slapstick comic direction, The visual gags are superb as is the dialogue. One scene with Clouseau just walking out of a building had got three belly laughs in it. The bedroom scene is just great physical comedy and timing. They really don't make them like they used to or remake them any good.

    I would like to score it higher but this film lacks two things. Chief Insp. Charles Dreyfus and Cato. The sequels are, I think, better. Not only are these characters introduced but Sellers also is a lot more confident in the role. And they are funnier.

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

    There are much better ones than this :-) Ginger Snaps and Dog Soldiers are my favourites.

    Quite a watchable drama about some bootleggers during prohibition.

    70's werewolf movie The Beast Must Die is pretty funny. It also includes a 'werewolf break' at the end, where you discuss who you think is the werewolf (I guessed it right, winner). I do feel sorry for the werewolf though, someone's dog in a big furry suit.

    Legally Blonde (I know, I know) - 6/10

    Actually pretty good for the first 2/3, but loses momentum in the courtroom when it should be its strongest scene. Certainly not a patch on My Cousin Vinny.

    Out For Justice - 8/10

    A quintissential "so bad it's good" movie, by way of Steven Seagal. He and other members of the cast deliver surprisingly good performances, and the fight scenes are deliciously brutal and efficient. The story is complete nonsense, yes, but I doubt even the writers expected anyone to take it seriously anyway.

    Highlights: Steven Seagal speaking Italian, the eponymous bar scene, Shannon Whirry's cleavage, any scene with the antagonist's slutty sister Patti.

    Identity (2003) 6.5/10

    Total mixed views towards this. On the one hand the acting is good, and on the other, given some of the events that unfold, the characters responses seem unconvincing (maybe the script/director is to blame). On that level the film is a bit plastic, maybe made for American audiences. The story is a who done it (or whoís doing it). Ultimately, who really cares, as I didnít as a viewer. Paris, played by Amanda Peet looks stunning. Other than 2012 (2009) Iíve managed to avoid every film she has appeared in.

    £1 for the DVD, so not a total loss. On the back on the DVD box it clearly states among the Special Features: Alternate Ending. Iíve looked, and it donít appear to be there?
