    I didn't dig the new Muppets movie until they did a reprise of the song from the first movie. Then I sort of bought into it more, perhaps out of nostalgia. I went into it expecting to hate it, and came out pleasantly surprised.

    I always thought the joke about the muppets was that they were these crazy, weird things in a human world and the humans didnt think that was strange (but the differences were played for laughs).

    Seen most notably by the fact that NOBODY thinks its weird that Segels brother is a muppet.

    The Empire Strikes Back 10/10, the best star Wars film made.

    Nah. The theatre was their own. All the guests were invited to their universe and get involved however they saw fit. Taking the theatre away from the muppets doomed the movie personally.

    Rewatching the tv show, it's even better. Some of the humour has lost its bite obviously but even today, it retains its uniqueness. There's nothing quite like it.

    The Godfather

    Simply one of (if not the) greatest films ever made.

    The restaurant assassination scene is masterful, especially the way that ambient noise is used to build tension.

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

    I can't argue your opinion. I can see where you're coming from. Personally though, after hating what had happend to The Muppets over the last twenty years, for me it was a significant step back in the right direction.

    Indeed. But the second one is better.

    One thing I really liked about The Muppet Show, was that the audience were muppets too.

    end of watch 6.5/10

    The acting from the leads was spot on, just found it slightly boring. Tbere is also a gangster girl in it played by what must be one of the worst actors I have ever seen

    Saw a few films at the cinema this weekend but was a bit unwell so I may be a little harsh on the first film I saw which was:

    Welcome to the Punch 7/10

    An entertaining film but I kinda fell asleep as I was suffering from the cold and I missed a bit of the plot. The acting was pretty decent by everyone and if I was less ill and more awake I think I would of enjoyed it more. However I have a feeling this is a film that will be quickly forgotten.

    Stolen 4/10

    A very average film that belongs back in the 90s and I have a feeling thats when it was roughly written for. There is some pretty big plot holes in the film and unfortunately Nicholas Cage isn't doing his usual over acting so its not as enjoyable as films like Conair. The main bad guy made me chuckle cos he was stupidly cheesy.

    Fuck. You. Fuck everyone who was involved with this movie. I hope you die in pain.

    I liked it. 2 was an atrocity but I liked 3. And Josh Brolin's Tommy Lee Jones is terrifyingly good.

    It was better than 2. I liked Macho Man Randy Savage and Scherzinger has a nice rack.

    Brolin aside (yes it was a good Tommy Lee; but that's not saying much because he's is a surly plank of wood no matter what the film), the film was just the first two storylines mashed together with an even shitter villian. This would have some lazy merit if the Smith/Jones partnership was actually amusing... but it's not. They don't act together, they both just do their own sterotype beside each other. By the time I got to the bit where O was doing Z's eulogy (about 5 minutes in) in a "funny alien voice" I just wanted to die. Die and kill all worthless human life so this horror is never again spoken of.

    I gave MIB 3 a 10 when it came out. I loved it, pissed all over the 1st 2 in my opinion

    amour
    Not quite sure why I chose to watch a film about some poor old sod looking after his progressively disabled wife. I suppose it must have been the Oscar nods and the directatorial pedigree. What you get is a fairly depressing, unflinching look at the indignity that old age and illness inflicts on you. Haneke seems to love to use very long takes, framing the scene, daring you to look away first. Can't say I particularly enjoyed it - but can't fault it as a piece of film making.

    Argo
    Pretty good. Probably would have enjoyed it more without the added expectation that winning 'best picture' gave it. Seemed a solid film, tension built up nicely towards the end.

    Pretty much how I felt about it. Worth a watch, but I couldn't sit through it again.

    Argo is a fair 7. They changed a few things from the real story to increase the tension, but when you already know it works out fine then it's never going to be tense really. I'd rather they stuck to the original tale. I enjoyed the acting but otherwise it was all a little bland and grey (sets, characters, the actual story). Glad I saw it at home; good Sunday afternoon film.

    Yeah, this is pretty much what I said about it (although I gave it a 6). There was nothing to actively dislike about it (apart from the tinkering with events, I suppose), but there was also nothing to really like about it either.

    The amount of forced tension building in Argo really annoyed me. Felt like an episode of 24 towards the end.

    Genuinely can't see how anyone could like the first 2 and not like this.
    It's funny in places and carried completely by Will Smith's charm and the special effects.
    Other than that utterly disposable. Just like the first 2.

    Friends With Benefits 69%
    Not as bad as I was expecting. I mean it has all the problems you'd expect from a chick flick about rich beautiful people in expensive loft apartments in New York. But Timberlake & Kunis are likable enough, the dialog was funny in places and the cheesy bit at the end was over and done with pretty quickly.
    Bearable then.

    We Bought A Zoo 61%
    About the most vanilla film ever made. But to be fair, about as good as your are going to get with something that has such dangerous levels of warm & fuzzy built into its DNA.
    Bearly bearable then.

    Salt 65%
    Again, just about watchable. She's not very convincing as a superspy and, I may have been debilitated though migraine, but seemed to be full of massive plotholes.

    God why did I bother this weekend.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    I know.

    I was/am sick & couldn't face any of the films on my list which are more challenging.

    So I put on films that the wife/kids would enjoy and I could safely fall asleep during.

    Didn't fall asleep for any of them though so ended up watching in full 4 of the most crushingly mediocre films ever.

    Ha, I found myself contemplating films like that today. Had a crushing migraine for most of the nit and morning which had reduced to a dull ache by mid-afternoon, and was looking for something I didn't have to concentrate on and could zone out to. Ended up with Kick Ass again. (9/10 still)

    Safety Not Guaranteed 7/10

    Enjoyable. Nice way to spend an evening, had that generic indie feel that can go either way but worked quite well with this, although in another mood it may have just irritated me.

    Good cast too. One of the subplots the main reporter man didn't do much for me and just fizzled out however and it never really reached a point where I thought it justified some of the hype it got.

    One major irritant though the fact that Belinda was alive completely invalidated everything we knew about the main guy (I'm terrible at remembering names) and why he was building a time machine at all. What he was going back for? Why 2001 still?

    Overall, enjoyable film with plotholes that didn't live up to the hype. Worth a watch though.
