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.
