    Oblivion - 6/10

    I like the idea of this film better than the execution. It had some really great concepts thrown in, but somehow missed the mark. A few notes:

    - I can't take Tom Cruise seriously in these kinds of roles. Just seems like a parody of himself now.

    - The music, done by M83, was basically a mix of Tron Legacy soundtrack (same director for both films) and Hans Zimmer. It was overly bombastic in scenes where it didn't need it. For a film that takes place in such an isolated and barren environment, it would have been nice to have some subtlety.

    - Morgan Freeman way underused. Also, hi, Jaime Lannister, what are you doing here!?

    - Visuals were the best bit. They did a really good job of establishing the world and I appreciated the use of practical sets.

    - I would have stayed with the redhead :p

    The Karate Kid (Remake)

    Wow. I say remake but this is actually quite different to the original. Unfortunately, not in a good way.

    Compared to the original, the fight scenes were pretty dull and the story was a bit outlandish too. Jackie Chan was pretty good, but he ain't no Mr Myagi.

    I'd give it a 6/10, but I reckon kids who haven't seen the original would love it.
    3/10 for me. All Kung Fu, terrible Kung Fu at that, and they somehow managed to nerf Chan's charm and humour. Awful.

    The Hobbit

    Not as good as I hoped it was going to be. It's pretty good, but the dwarves didn't seem right.

    7/10

    The Hobbit - 8/10

    Better than I expected it to be. Annoyingly had to watch it in SD so felt like I was missing out slightly. Way better than the first LOTR which bored me to tears (actually walked out of the cinema when I first went to see it). Can't wait for the next one which I will definitely be going to the cinema for.

    Pitch Perfect - 8/10

    Missus was desperate to see this. Hated me for not taking her to the cinema when it was out and rushed to the shop when it came out on DVD. It is basically Glee crossed with Bridesmaids. Which sounds awful (why I was avoiding it!) but it is in fact damn good fun and bloody funny at times.

    A History Of Violence (2005) 7.5/10

    It’s pretty good without ever being a must see classic. Maria Bello looks pretty hot. Checking on IMDb - seem’s I’ve dodged just about every other movie she’s appeared in. It wasn’t until the intro credits roll, Director David Cronenberg gets a mention. Seems kinda odd not to not mention such a big name on the Dvd cover. Instead, all it mentions is someone unknown to me called Viggo Mortensen.

    Was a film starring Liam Neeson, also known for his role in modern classic Taken.

    Aren't you the simple chap who mistook a documentary for a film?

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

    From what I could gather, it, The Imposter, was a documentary with a cast of actors, hence it felt like a film, and it wasn't until I Googled more info I discovered it was based on fact not fiction, as the documentary film came across like a possible hoax, as I had seen a similar hoax film in the past.

    The Transporter.

    Surprisingly fresh faced Stathe. But fuck me this film hasn;t aged well. Decent premise, just falls apart into a messy mess. Kudos to having the worst RPG house attack scene in history. Some of the hand to hand stuff is well done though.

    3/10

    Eastern Promises is Mortensen's best performance - which reminds me I've not seen it since it came out.

    @Trowel - Eastern Promises and History of Violence are two of my favourite films. The only fly in the ointment for EP is Vincent Cassell - I thought he was silly and miscast.

    So, End of Watch turned out to be excellent. The only downer for the missus was that she couldn't understand some of the dialogue from the gang members. But since the only word most used was "fuck" I don't think she missed too many nuances.

    Interesting way of filming it, too. Recommended.

    Yeah I really enjoyed it. Probably 8/10, losing a point for the utterly shit female gangster actress.

    Did I miss something or did they totally forget about the Found Footage aspect of it half way through too?

    By the time the shootout starts there is absolutely no attempt made to pretend somebody just happens to be filming something for some film studies course. There's just straight up a camera man in the room.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Strange film, difficult to watch at times

    7/10

    Surely the director must of known when she came to do her 1st scene that casting had made a big mistake. As I said before it just ruined the film for me
