    Deadfall - 8/10

    A superb thriller which follows two siblings after a casino heist, their subsequent separation and their reunion at a family's thanksgiving dinner.

    This film has you pretty much gripped from the opening five minutes or so. The plot is decent is not entirely predictable. It has a superb cast and performances.

    The separation of the siblings and the way the plot follows them both to their reunion is really well handled. Their choices and how they reach their ultimate destination sets itself up for a great finale.

    There's something about the snow filled setting which adds something not only to the plot but the style of the film. It's superbly directed and shot.

    One of those films that wouldn't be a disappointment as a Friday or Saturday night out at the flicks. Recommended.

    Superman vs The Elite (Netflix US) - 8.5/10

    Wasn't really too sure about this when I started watching. I though I'd give it 10 minutes and see if it was any good. A superb animation film which was much better than I expected. Perhaps it was having a character in there called Manchester Black and a mention of Heaton Park may have had something to do with me liking it so much. But no, not really.

    Truth is, I though it was a superb story. Animation was really well done and the voice acting is great. Well, kind of. Just checked who did Manchester Black's voice and it's a UK actor Robin Atkin Downes. Probably making it sound more palatable for US audiences.

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

    Supershark. Superb acting, believable plot, and breathtaking special effects.

    The end was a bit short though, so I'll give it 7/10.

    So not very well then. Goodo.

    The colour of his skin etc obviously has nothing to do with it, but I am struggling to get my head around Cruise in the role. Will check it out once it hits Netflix etc. though.

    Psycho - 9/10

    Yeah, brilliant. Taken me far too long to get round to watching it.

    Gangs of New York - turned it off/10

    Really disappointed in this, had to turn it off after about 50 minutes. Honestly wouldn't believe it was a Scorcese film if I hadn't already known. It ooked really dated despite only being about ten years old. It was all very 90s: the way it looked, how it was shot, the music, etc. And, of course, since it was Hollywood doing something Irish it was all "to be sure, to be sure boyo" with flute music in the background.

    Spiderman (the new one) - 5/10 - Mildly entertaining. The CGI spiderman certainly looks a lot better than the last films as it does not look like an obvious animation quite so much. The new Peter Parker was kind of Ok and at least he did not have such a slapp-able face as Toby Maguire. He did look a little skinny though in the suit when it was not CGI spidey. He had noticably spindly legs. Anyway no idea why they bothered with a reboot as this added nothing new and it was overwhealmingly average.

    The Pirates 8.

    Purchased today during the food shop for the girls. I enjoyed it the most, not exactly the best film ever for small children. More full of sly humour aimed at adults.

    Mixed! I personally thought it was a pretty good and didn't mind the opening section. It's LotR lite. Like the book.

    Django Unchained

    In typical Tarantino style, over the top dialogue and violence but I really quite enjoyed this. Big fan of Christophe Waltz anyway.

    Only gripe is Tarantino's cameo. Why he insists on appearing on screen I'll never know.

    80/100

    Grosse Point Blank
    Great soundtrack good film.
    My favorite bit this time (as the last time) is peoples reactions to when Cusack tells them he's an assassin.

    Worth watching

    You gotta love the 90's, the era when smashing a TV over a guys head meant said head would end up INSIDE the TV.

    Seven Psychopaths

    It's a bit of a mess, with too many under-developed characters and many plot strands that don't really go anywhere. But this film is all about the dialogue and at times is genuinely laugh out loud funny.

    I expected great things as In Bruges is one of my favourite films, but unfortunately this just isn't in the same league.

    65%

    Django Unchained

    Just didn't do it for me. The times I wanted more character development (Django's training), it seemed to skip through at an alarming pace, and the times when I couldn't care less about what was happening (the journey to the mine), it crawled to a snails pace. Christoph Waltz simply rehashed his role from Inglourious (gawd knows how he bagged an oscar) and Jamie Foxx was largely anonymous despite playing the lead. Tarrantino has overused the word "nigger" so much in his films, that it no longer has any impact whatsoever. Maybe that was his aim all along? Regardless, he really needs to move on now.

    55%

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

    Oz The… Bleh Bleh Bleh… 0/10
    Some people told me the 3D was good in this, so I grabbed my niece and used her as an excuse to go see it. Those people were technically correct, but they are also cunts for making me see this atrocious film. Who is this film for? Surely it’s too childish and brash for fans of the original film (as in old people), and it’s definitely too boring for kids (my niece was falling asleep). Besides being boring, it’s also massively sexist; the entire plot revolves around the fact Oz one-night-standed one of the witches and that Glinda can’t do anything without a man around to reassure her. She’s got fucking (rubbish) magic, but she didn’t do anything until that dick bag Oz turned up? Fuck you, film.

    GI Joe Retaliation -10/10
    I’m a big defender of the first one; I thought it was fun. This one wasn’t. It didn’t make any sense (fine for an action film, but this was insultingly stupid), it was piss poorly acted (like worse than acceptable; I swear Bruce Willis winked at the camera at one point) and the action scenes were just tedious. Tedious. That bit at the end, where The Rock chases around some guy who sometimes sounded Irish and sometimes sounded South African, went on for like nine hours. Two aging, slightly fat men way past their prime failing to shoot each other and then rolling on the floor for nine hours. And the scene changes… what the fuck? Industrial… desert… Germany… underground… pine-y USA… snowy mountain… Japan… STOP IT. STOP. Pick one or two fucking countries and stay there, you lunatic film. I enjoyed nothing about this film, apart from the end… where they seemed to play out takes of scenes (not funny ones, but cut material) behind the credits which actually looked more exciting than the film.

    But I did learn something. When The Rock (whoever the fuck he was playing) goes to “the hood” (for some reason) apparently he’s black. The Rock is black? I thought he was just tanned!

    I think he's Maori or something. Not sure what difference that makes, but yeah.

    Roadblock is black, so maybe the casting people forgot to tell the writer and they just left the scenes in as is?

    /Joking, but also a real possibility

    He's half-Samoan I think. But seriously, Hollywood, please find a large black guy who's actually black. In fact... didn't the first GI Joe have an actual black actor playing a black character? Yes, in fact... it had two (Heavy Duty and Ripcord). I'm fairly sure having more than one character from the last film would have been cool (Duke dies within the first minutes... oops... spoilers!).

    Why do you care if they're "actually black", whatever that means?

    The Amazing Spiderman 67%
    Quite enjoyed this. More than I thought I would anyway. Still think Raimi nailed Spiderman in his first one. But as an attempt to set up a different universe to that one, this is entertaining I'm likely to check out another which I wasn't expecting to say when I started the film.

    Batman : The Dark Night Returns Parts 1 & 2 56%
    Boring.
    I don't think I like Batman as a character. I haven't enjoyed a Batman film since the Burton ones. I think my suspension of disbelief can be bought if a film is going to be fun. Batman hasn't been that for a long time.
    60s Batman is still best.
