    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.
    I noticed that. It seemed to be less 'found footage' and more 'shaky cam' as the film went on. Still a great film though. Made me feel very fortunate to work in London.

    Resident Evil: ReTURDbution...

    How the director ever plucked the brilliant 'Event Horizon' out of his arse is beyond me. This film is like the Red Bull-fuelled dreams of a teenager who simultaneously discovered World of Leather and ate a gun made of cheese.

    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.
    Catfish, by any chance?
    I have seen Catfish, but that wasn’t the film I was thinking of. The film I’m thinking of, which I cannot remember the title of right now, was a hoax documentary. It told an interesting, almost convincing story. Two key moments which made me wonder included a scene that mentioned film being made from egg white, and another scene that digitally enhanced some text on an old photograph from blurred to being 100% in focus. All the same, it was entertaining stuff.

    Iron Man 3 (3D) - 9.5/10

    The best superhero film since The Dark Knight and it's just as good. Writer/director Shane Black and Robert Downey Jr. blast this one out of the park.

    If you've been looking forward to seeing this I don't think you'll be in any way disappointed whatsoever. There are plenty of doubters about Shane Black being involved as writer/director. He tries to be too clever for his own good, he's tries too hard with the funnies and he can't quit hack it as a top notch director.

    Whatever you think about him he's accomplished many things with this film but there are two highlights which really stand out.

    1. Robert Downey Jr.'s performance.

    As good as Heath Ledger's Joker in The Dark Knight. Despite what you think of the Iron Man films overall, his performance as Tony Stark was always brilliant. He's really comfortable in the role now and has a lot of fun in this one. The sarcastic personality and the huge ego are all there but there's a lot more to it.

    In an audience Q&A a young kid asked him what it felt like to play a hero to which he replied "I take it as seriously as Shakespeare". There are moments of heavy drama and subtlety and Downey makes it looks effortless.

    2. The script.

    Yes it has Black's trademarks in there but his style suits Iron Man. It does deliver some belly laughs and everything you'd expect from a great film of this kind. However, what he's done though is also made this the most unpredictable superhero film I've ever seen. This is also what takes it to another level for me. All of the characters are developed much further and get ample screen time.

    This is a summer blockbuster though and it there are certain expectations. The action sequences are spectacular, it's very funny, lots of explosions and Gwyneth Paltrow is smoking hot!

    Anything wrong with it? The 3D isn't used that much and it's okay. Just watch in it 2D on the biggest screen you can find. It doesn't take away the fact that this is one of the best summer blockbusters to come out in years. Man of Steel and the new Star Trek are going to have to be exceptional to match this. In other words, just as good.

    Also, even though the end credits seem to go on forever, it's really worth staying to see the final clip.

    No way.

    There's no way it's that good. What did you give Iron Man 2?

    White House Down 3/10


    Ok its the Roland Emmerich white house invasion film with the meat head Channing Tatum and Jamie Foxx.

    Let s put it this way its the PG13 version of Olympus has Fallen with naff CGI helicopters and gun play where people get shot but no one bleeds.


    I thought Olympus has Fallen was pretty dam good, griity and brutal whereas this is the less gritty teenage version with added CGI.

    Fucking avoid at all costs and save your money............. or go watch Olympus has Fallen.

    Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy.

    Really is a terrific film. I already said loads about it before. so yeah

    10/10

    The Amazing Spiderman

    Actually quite surprised by this. A pretty decent hollywood blockbuster. I understand all the whats the point of it, and it didn't really need a reboot, but it works. Andrew garfield is pretty good as PP (even though i thought he was too handsome at first to play him in a weird way), and it felt quite in line with the comic books. It was fun and not as serious as the pre release trailers made it out. The comic book violence (that avengers did so well) was equally as good here and made it alot of fun.

    Of course there were a few contrivances along the way that always stick out like a sore thumb, uncle bens death early on, and the almost total disregard of it afterwards being the obivious GAH moment. And the CGI was fucking awful (Was watching in SD though)

    Peter and Gwen Relationship (Sigh emma stone, you going to make someone a really happy bloke) was good.

    In a few years i think when it been out on dvd for a while and people can pick it up willy nilly, it be seen as yeah that almost as good as the 2002 version.

    Think they would mash together quite well, that done some things better, this done some things better.

    Not really needed, but yeah i kind of enjoyed it.

    7/10

    Can't remember for Iron Man 2. Probably be about a 5 Now. Up till Monaco it was really enjoyable. After that it got a bit dull. Didn't think that much of Whiplash. Had it's moments but I dont really remember any of the action sequences. Got to admit, I did like Black Widow and glad she got introduced into the Marvel films in it.

    It's the script that does it for IM3. In your words there are a few scenes where I went "No way!" In a good way. Off to bed now.

    Cheers for this beastmaster, it had been knocked down to my 3rd most anticipated summer blockbuster by Man of Steel and Star Trek but you've bumped it back up the list again. Cannot wait!

    @Beastmaster...

    Thanks for the review...

    I too was a little unsure of this, as i loved the first one but as you said, 2 went down hill fast about half way through.

    Really want to see this now..! Also i feel a little gay towards RDJ.

    Kill list - 6/10 - Really not sure about this one. It's rather good initially and seems to be building towards something but the conclusion just does not work for me. There is just not quite enough information to come up with a cohesive explanation for it all for me. Is Maskills character an antichrist figure of some sort? Is it just some mad cult that for some reason is focussed on Maskill and if so why did they pick him? I will say the atmosphere the film builds is great and it does make you think about it afterwards. The acting is also great from all the main characters.

    To be fair though I thought both Evil Dead & Iron Man 3 were stonking films. Holy Motors is well worth checking out too.

    Star Trek, Fast & Furious 6 are next months big hitters. Looking forward to Mud as we as it's had great reviews.

    Try and avoid films like The Three Stooges as much as possible. Just checked the Odeon website and they're already selling tickets for Fast & Furious. Not in any great rush to see it though.

    I really enjoyed it. On a par with the first film.

    I think it just took it's time (are films allowed to do that now?) and it wasn't boring. In some ways, it's a origins film again. Setting up relationships between characters ready for the next film (or Avengers?).

    Sam Rockwell? His character is meant to be a wuss. As for Scarlett Johansson as Black Window. She's hot and can kick ass. However, from reading the stories by Richard K. Morgan I would expect her to be a lot meaner. Emily Blunt would have been more convincing.

    There's only so much you can do with the film. It could have been a lot darker but they decided not to go that way too much. Rightly so imho.

    But the film was mostly Tony Stark and RDJ has totally nailed the character. One thing I really did like way they did pissed Tony Stark in Iron Man suit.

    Gets a very good 8/10 from me. Roll on Thor.

    BTW, there seems to be a couple of scenes in the trailers that don't make the final cut. No doubt show up on the BR.

    So Iron Man 3 is really a 6 once the giddy over excitement of it being new is gone.

    Cool.
