    The Bay

    Not bad as 'found footage' eco-warning gory body parasite mutilation horror films go.

    Mr. Brooks 7/10

    This is a properly fucked up (in a good way) film that caught me off guard with just how weird it was. Kevin Costner plays a serial killer who doesn't like killing but is schizo so listens to his murderous alter ego "Marshall", brilliantly played by William Hurt. Things get progressively more fucking weird as the film goes on and almost climaxes in a shocking and surprising ending but actually the ending is even more disturbing when you start to think about it. Presumably things were engineered for a sequel that never materialised. A hilariously naff corridor shootout didn't ruin my enjoyment of this film. Worth checking out.

    The Uninvited ?/10

    I started this without realising Emily Browning was in it. It promptly went off after her expressionless visage appeared. It seems to me being able to emote is something an actor needs. Her career is baffling to me.

    Oblivion
    Sumptuous looking. And quite fun. Won't say anymore.

    I was off work with a dirty cold yesterday, so I decided to catch up with some of the shit that my wife wont watch:

    The Man With Iron Fists:

    Absolute garbage. The trailer makes it look like its going to be awesome but it sucks megaballs. Its meant as an homage to 70s kung fu but the problem is that none of the main cast can fight, so the fight scenes are all wank and really badly put together, with the fight co-ordinator apparently unable to decide whether itís a proper old skool kung fu movie or a wire fu spectacular. It ends up being neither and quite, quite shit.

    The only highlight in the entire film is a fat looking Russell Crowe as an opium smoking, whore hopping British soldier, chewing up scenery and spitting it out with gay abandon. Hes the only person who looks like hes having fun, especially compared to The Rza as the titular Man With Iron Fists who is a dour personality vacuum, sucking the life out of every scene he is in.

    3/10

    Silent Hill: Suffix

    Cant remember exactly whats its called but some girl runs around with Jon Snow out of Game of Thrones while Trinity off the Matrix tries to hunt them down for 90 minutes. The plot makes barely any sense at all. The girl out of the original has split up her soul or something, so Trinity has to drag the new girl back to Silent Hill to kill the original girl.

    Sean Bean makes an appearance as the girls dad, continuing his tradition of being utterly incapable of doing an American accent and, given how terrible this movie was, it was absolutely no surprise to see Malcolm ĎIíll do ití McDowell make a late appearance as some crazy old dude.

    In mitigation for all of this awfulness, the monster design was really good and the film looked great. If the director had a better script to work with, he may have knocked up a decent movie but, as it stands, its incomprehensible but good looking shite.

    Also, im not a big expert on the Silent Hill games, but im fairly sure Pyramid Head wasnít ever reduced to some gimpy bodyguard of the heroine.

    2/10

    Prometheus - 5/10. Late to the party, but what a disappointing, disjointed film. Looked lovely and tried to create the claustrophobia of Alien, but can't help but think there was some poor editing that meant scenes made no sense and broke the little tension there was. Shame.

    Oblivion 7/10

    Good looking and entertaining Sci-Fi starring the 7ft Wee-Man.

    The "twist" can be seen a mile off but its a fun ride.
    Only downer is the phoned in Morgan Freeman performance, which leads me onto my next review.


    Olympus has Fallen 9/10

    Brilliant, the best Die Hard film to never have a die hard title. Its far fetched but its brilliantly done, great cast, brill action and Butler Kicks ass.

    Nice to see an action flick with a harder edge as well, with some good old fashioned bloody gun play on top of the big bangs.

    One of the best recent action flicks I've seen

    But again Freeman is phoning it in.

    I saw Oblivion yesterday and thought it was dogshit/10. Slow and plodding. Confusing plot that makes no sense. I even feel asleep in the cinema and I never do that.

    Well designed, though.

    Dark Skies 2013

    Another horror from the Insidious/Paranormal Activity people. Except nowhere near as good as their previous efforts. And it has aliens in it.

    ball-bags/10
  • Deleted user 13 April 2013 11:24:35
    hate these trailers that because someone has produced it they tag their name onto it.

    Dark Skies has hardly anything to do with James Wan

    Man of steel is guilty of this...........Chris Nolans had fuck all to do with it, yet they name drop him and the dark knight in the trailer.

    remember the film Sanctum having Avatar and James Cameroon splodged all over the poster too.

    Django Unchained.

    8/10.

    Its not a western, get that out of your head before you watch, this is a story centered around the slave trade.

    Its typical Tarantino, perhaps not as good as Inglorious Basterds, but well worth a watch.

    Oh, and not since ChloŽ Moretz in Kick Ass have i seen a performance steal the show as much as the brilliant Christoph Waltz does.

    From Barry Lyndon to...

    Knocked Up

    Wife and I really enjoyed this. Enough genuine belly laughs; the characters were endearing whilst just about managing to stay on the right side of shmaltzy.

    The most pleasantly surprise I've been with an American comedy since 'The 40-Year-Old Virgin'.

    7/10

    Zack and Miri make a Porno should be next on your list then! I really enjoyed it, but then, I'm a big Kevin Smith fan.

    Knocked Up and 40yo virgin are 2 peas from the same pod imo. Occasionally funny and as you say, just the right side of schmaltzy.

    Trance - 8/10

    Latest film from director Danny Boyle is pretty damn good and not entirely predictable.

    The plot is about an auctioneer who steals a painting and some very bad men want to know where it is. Problem is, he's got amnesia after a blow to the head and can't remember where it is. It's a pretty simple setup but the plot goes off in all sorts of unexpected ways.

    This being a Danny Boyle film it looks blooming marvellous. The soundtrack is really well suited to the film and probably worth getting in itself. It's also perfectly cast but poor French actor Vincent Cassel must be fed up of playing bastards. He's very good at it though. I'm not a massive fan of James McAvoy but in this film he's superb and I'm starting to like him now.

    Well worth a watch but you'll obviously have to suspend some disbelief when you're watching it.

    Oblivion (IMAX) - 7/10

    Tom Cruise stars in this decent sci-fi film which tries a bit too hard to be a bit too clever. Excellent special effects though.

    For some strange reason this films plot kind of reminded me a bit of WALL-E from Pixar. Tom Cruise IS Jack. One half of a two person team who are there to extract Earth's last resources as the people of Earth move onto a different planet, due to nuclear fallout making the planet inhabitable.

    The first thing to say about this film is that the visual effects are excellent all the way through. The IMAX is put to good use really capturing the vast, empty vistas. The action scenes are also well handled with lots of frigging lazer beams going pew-pew everywhere.

    It's quite a slow film at first but it's nowhere near as boring as the opening of The Hobbit. The plot keeps things interesting during this time. As the story progresses things get ever more complex. It does get a bit too clever for it's own good but if you go with it (and I did) you'll likely really enjoy it.

    The acting is pretty good. Mr Cruse does indeed have a good surgeon and hot Ukrainian babe (is there any other?) Olga Kurylenko shows up to spice things up a little. Morgan Freeman pops up to say "Hello" and is very much an extended cameo.

    Is the film worth seeing? It's probably worth it for the effects alone. I enjoyed it but I would class this as a film I don't think I'd watch again. It's not flawless and once you've seen it once, I don't think there's much to make you want to see it again.

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

    Interesting, I really disliked Knocked Up, primarily on account of the two female protagonists, who were so appaulingly badly written that I ended up just getting irritated everytime either one was on screen. I know it was a guy (or bunch of lads?) trying to write female characters, so perhaps I should give them some slack, but it just really infuriated me. In fact it is actually what has stopped me checking out 'This is 40'.

    Ah well, each to there own :)

    I fancy an old school thriller tonight; something Patriot Games or Clear and Present Danger -esque. Any suggestions welcome.

    It doesn't get any better than LA Confidential.

    If you're up for something even more old school - and French - watch Rififi. Not only is it a good thriller but its the greatest heist movie made yet.

    The Grey - 6.5/10

    This film was up and down more than Russell Brand's pants. We get long, drawn-out and unnecessary scenes, we get an unnecessary sense of importance, shockingly poor CGI wolves and wolf-puppets, and a poor ending. That said, there are moments of brilliance. Notably the bit on the plane was incredibly well done - that scene being far more edge-of-your-seat than Denzel's 'Flight'. Technically, it looked absolutely glorious, had a fantastic orchestral soundtrack and really shows off your surround system. But it went quickly downhill after the first 30 minutes, and for that it gets an only slightly-better-than-average 6.5.

    The Master 2013

    Didn't entirely understand this weird film, about a yank sailor returning from ww2 an alcoholic, then joining a cult. Somehow kept me watching right till the end though :confused:

    WTF 6/10 Maybe higher if you can understand whats going on...

    Just watched it.

    It's not too Christmasy.†

    Didn't like it though.† Big mess of a film with horribly middle of the road voice acting from just about everyone (especially Jude† Law).

    Kids have put it straight back on though. So they loved it.

    Brap, brap, old chap.
