    Dredd (2012) - 7/10

    Simple fun action flick. Decent set-up with a minimum of exposition and some great action sequences. Urban plays the role well and having not seen the original I found the uncompromising nature of the character pretty cool. His gravelly voice sounded much more natural than Bale's Batman. Very enjoyable, should probably watch the original at some point!

    Revolutionary Road - 8/10

    Enjoyed this more than I expected to. A great look at two people trapped within their own lives in 50's middle-America and how they struggle to come to terms with the fact the reality of their ideals is different to how they expected and their hopes/dreams are constrained by their responsibilities and societal norms. Thought-provoking and realistic/pessimistic (depending on your POV) view of the potential trials, frustrations and pitfalls of the 'traditional' life.

    Leo and Kate's performances were fantastic; very believable and they played off each other well.

    Jack Reacher
    7/10
    Odd film. Passed the time fine but seemed to be an odd mish mash of genres!

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    The Hunter (Netflix UK)

    Beautifully shot and quite poignant, I thought Dafoe puts in an understated performance.

    7/10

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Kate and Leo's performances in that film will always astound me. The rabid intensity with which they go at each other is something to behold. Must have been exhausting.

    Evil Dead - 8/10

    As horror remakes go this is more Dawn of the Dead than Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Doesn't have anywhere near the character of the originals but Jane Levy is just brilliant and it's about as good as could be reasonably expected

    A fine recommendation from this very thread. An interesting look at a serial killer.

    Bulla Big fat gypsy gangster - 7/10

    Its a comedy about a "kerazy" nuts gangster played by heathers bf in eastenders.

    It IS funny with panty of larfs; especially the midget stables and fighting.........its just that the 'keraziness' of bulla is a bit too ott and contrived, even within the context of a comedy about a mental gangster.

    It is good and worth a watch and not a waste of time but it thinks its funnier than it is. Strange one. Mixed bag.

    Spiderman 3 - 6/10

    Been a few years since I watched this and its probably the worst one. He fucks his mate up punches MJ and destroys his colleague through his decision to use the black suit.........but its all okay in the end and mj takes him back despite him being a nob end.

    Odd, you're literally the first person I know who's disliked it that much. Generally its gotten nothing but positive responses. I found it hilarious in places personally. Could have done with a bit of trimming here and there but overall, good fun.

    Haha I'm 24! My older brother has been moaning at me to see it for years but just never got round to it. Probably a contender for my top 10 films aswell so many good moments, well shot, Pesci is menancing aswell will have to watch it again soon! On a Scorsese session at the moment

    My wife didn't mind it and I might be being a bit harsh, but as Deckard1 says, it was too forced. I suspect I wasn't quite drunk enough. I liked the obvious cameo though!

    Watched Jack Reacher last night. The main problems with it were A) a lack of mystery (there was literally no ambiguity at all with regards to whether the sniper guy was innocent or not, so all the "detective" work to prove it seemed pointless) and B) a lack of tension. Reacher's setup as The Ultimate Badass, yet the universe itself strives to be quasi-realistic, meaning any action scenes are little more than an excuse for things looking cool than any actual narrative drive. Even just injecting a tiny amount of vulnerability to the character would have helped - even Bond has moments where he doesn't succeed or fucks up in some way.

    Aside from that it wasn't terrible (quite nicely shot in places), but I'd be very surprised if they managed to spawn another movie from it.

    Watched End of Watch before which was very good. Watching Max Payne now which is very shit.
  • Deleted user 21 April 2013 23:11:40
    I also watched about eight minutes of The Host before giving up with it. I think the girl who stars in it may be the worst actor in the history of anything, am-dram productions staged in church halls included.

    I read practically everything going, but it's only teen fiction that gets made into films nowadays. Plus it was newly leaked onto the interwebs and the wife wanted to see it, though it was a mutual decision to abandon it at the eight minute mark. I started farting around on the kindle before William Hurt's opening voiceover had finished.

    Please dont bother watching the original. I cant remember in my lifetime another movie that screwed over the original material and fans so much. He is supposed to be a hardass antihero who stops at nothing to uphold the law, not some blithering idiot who cant speak english and jeeeeez why oh why would he be kissing Hershey!!!

    The Impostor (2012) 6.5/10

    The Dvd cover is covered in ***** ratings, and having never heard of the film, thought I’d give it a go.

    The idea is interesting. Reality is, the film comes across like a documentary (which it succeeds in doing), 80% made up of people talking into the camera interview style, the other 20% consisting of footage that shows events. I found this off-putting. I went into The Impostor with great expectations, and came away thinking, it was ok, I’ll never watching it again, and I’ll sell the Dvd on.

    The weirdest aspect of the story has to be that it is based on fact. That is the most fascinating aspect of the story.

    I wasn't sure if it was one of those films that goes all out to be clever and persuade the viewer 'this really is based on a true story' or it was simply a film based on real events.
