    Margin Call (2011) 8/10

    Not a bad little film, about the key people at an investment bank, set over a 24-hour period, during the early stages of the financial crisis, inspired by the events of 2008 when it all went to shit. These kind of films don’t normally interest me, but it stars Kevin Spacey and he has a habit of lifting any film. I found the ending kind odd. Given that most of the film takes place inside an office department, it couldn’t have cost all that much to make.

    Spring Breakers - 9/10

    Like, seriously good y'all.

    Subversive, funny, beautifully shot. Franco is crazy good. The scene where they all stand round the piano singing Britney is tremendous. Deserves a higher cult status than Drive, its a better film, and it highlights the moral vacuum at the heart of American society.

    Rambo (2008) - 7/10

    Love the gore and violence but it's just your straightforward action flick. Having him sent in with a team of mercs is a good idea as he's no longer the one man army.

    Not much else to add really. For me, all the first three Rambo films were great. This one is decent. Ain't no 12A shit going down in this one.

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

    Cockneys vs. Zombies

    How the fuck did I let myself watch this / 10.


    That said, there were an handful of funny one-liners. And it was nice to hear an all-British cast in a movie. Aaaand that's about it.

    @HarryPalmer Franco was super, but the film revels in the moral vacuum it seems to be critiquing, and that really annoyed me.

    Skyrim – It’s the first time I have seen it since I watched it at the cinema and I still rate it as the best Daniel Craig Bond. The only real reason im even commenting on it is that on Blu-Ray on a nice big HDTV, the CGI is absolutely garbage.

    The practical effects are all really good. Things blow up, people flip over and cars chase about in quite a spectacular fashion but almost every major CGI shot is distractingly awful. Daniel Craigs head on the motorbike chase scene looks like its one of those Van Wilder/Picard Gifs and all of the vapour trails, without exception are awful. When the woman smokes the fag in the casino and Bond and Silva face off on the frozen lake, the smoke/steam looks so fake it actually takes you out of the moment, such is the level of fakery, it would have been better to just leave it out and have people comment ‘No smoke from the cigarette derp’ on IMDB than leave it as is.

    I know its incredibly nit-picky, but in such a high profile movie its just unacceptable. When CGI is routinely used brilliantly in fairly mundane TV shows, there really is no excuse.

    The Hobbit

    I wasn't expecting much, but I absolutely loved it. Stunning locations, flawless special effects and a great cast of familiar and new characters.

    If I'm nitpicking, I would say that Martin Freeman barely strayed from the persona he creates for everything else he's ever done, and the film just kinda ends abruptly, when the momentum is heading towards the battle with the dragon.

    It has reignited my interest in the series and I'll probably go to the cinema now to see the next instalment.

    I'm interested to know just how much of Guillermo Del Toro's work is in the final film. Some of the creature effects (the Goblin King) seem to have his stamp all over them.

    85%

    Don't Be Afraid of the Dark

    Magic rat pixies terrorise Guy Pearce, Kate Holmes and a little girl who has the mumps. It's sort of OK, but it also really shit. Also Guy Pearce is really starting to get on my tits now.

    5/10

    He's the ONLY thing in it that's ok :lol: although his performance makes the film entertaining.

    Yeah I watched most of it the other day but fell asleep towards the end. He was OK in it, but I dunno, there's something that always makes me think, "Oh look, there's Guy Peace acting again". I never really buy him. I dunno if its because his accent is never quite natural. His face is also a lot more beadier than I would have liked.

    Yeah, me too! Maybe without Luc Besson on autopilot writing mode.

    I hated him in that gangster flick last year, about the moonshiners...erm...Tom Hardy and that transformers Jew were in it.

    Guy Pearce is an odd one. He seems to be having a great career in reverse.

    LA Confidential and Momento are great calling cards, Prometheus and Lockdown, not so much...

    He actually didn't need to be in Prometheus at all...very strange casting. Ok, he was young in the virals, but..

    I can see why it would rub people the wrong way. It's definitely up front and honest about its lechery, unlike something like Compliance, which I thought was disgusting.

    He will never top his 'tour de force' performance of 'Mike off Neighbours'.

    I truly felt his guilt and anguish when he dropped that bird off the back of his motorbike.

    The plan for Prometheus was/is to have one of the sequels be part prequel as well a la Godfather 2, hence Guy Pearce being old manned up.

    :eek: You know more than Ridley Scott! Are you in fact Damon Lindelof? :lol:

    I just think there could have been a better way of doing it, ie casting an old dude as the old version of Weyland and someone similar for the younger version.

    You would hope thats was the plan, otherwise its just inexplicably mental casting.

    Even the skit he did as a younger man for the promo wasnt worth all the flak he took.

    Don't Be Afraid of the Dark also had a brief appearance from Jim from Neighbours as well. I was hoping for some Des action as well, but alas the jug eared mook remains in hiding.

    Jim Robinson is in everything.

    In fact, i bet hes got one of those weird statistics as 'highest grossing bit part actor' or something.

    Clunky but great fun, thought the finale was excellent. One for genre fans though.

    Prometheus

    Finally got to see this since HBO was playing it. It started off well -- proper suspense-building scenes -- but then it went astray and I'm not entirely sure what to make of it after that. It felt like they had this great idea but had no idea what to do with it after the first half hour.

    68/100
