    I loved how Pesci still got to go full psycho, even though his character was quite mild mannered in comparison to his brother.

    The Look Of Love - 7/10

    A version of Paul Raymond's story, the person who bought up most of Soho property and opened up the UK's first strip club. He then went on to launch Men Only, Mayfair and Escort adult magazines.

    Got to admit, the source material is pretty damn good. Director Michael Winterbottom teams up with Steve Coogan again but I'm not sure how good an impression Coogan does of Raymond.

    The films not that great at the start. It's a bit slow and boring and Raymond gives snippets of his life story to the camera. Though it was going to be a terrific bore.

    That is until Tamsin Egerton comes into the film as Fiona Richmond. Her entrance is something along the lines of the a UK version of Cameron Diaz's in The Mask (not as bad as I've made it sound. Really). She is just stunningly beautiful in this. The whole film lifts with her presence but it's at this point the film's plot kicks into gear and things start to happen. Lots of Tamsin naked and getting up to all sorts of naughtiness.

    I don't know how accurate the story is but it's good drama. Googan plays Raymond like he's a cunt but you do get to see other sides of his personality. Other support comes from Anna Friel and Imogen Potts, neither of which is camera shy either. However, it's Tamsin who comes out the best in this. Makes the kind of impact that will probably see her film career launch big time.

    She's got the looks and the posh tottyness for Lara Croft.

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

    Les Miserables (99.9%)

    It takes a little while to get into with the music initially seeming to lose clarity of words for delivery of the story, but that quickly passes and for the 2:30hr I was glued to the screen and completely drawn in by the enjoyable tragedies that layer and unfold.

    The passion conveyed by each and every competing stake holder in the story made it quite feel special as the plot unfolded in a way I wasn't expecting from my preconceptions. I'm sure many people will have a marmite reaction with it depending on their like for musicals, their religious upbringing as that might result in story subtleties being less meaningful in respect of the time period. But for me it was a fantastic viewing experience I'd thoroughly recommend.

    Silver Linings Playbook. 8/10, would have been 6/10 but for that scene (and no, not the one with her doing her thing, the Excelsior scene).

    It's a film about the challenges of being mentally ill where the main character stops being mentally ill halfway through. It's a redemption story about finding out what's important where everyone ends up on your side through coincidence rather than you earning it. It's well acted, well directed and extremely well scored but I can't lose the cynical undernote of a film playing to win at the Oscars. And sadly, under it all, it's Dirty Dancing 3: Philadelphia Nuthouse Rock.

    Nice to see Robert de Niro remembering what it's like to be an actor though.
    The more I think about this the more of a bad taste it leaves. I'm taking this down to 6/10. Very very overrated.
    The only recent film that seems more like it was made purely to win awards is one that I've seen the trailer for, but can't remember the name, where two gay men, one of whom is struggling to come out, adopt a disabled child.

    No crying, but the film really taps into the family unit mindset for all the characters that makes characters convincing and easy to empathise with. Crowe is brilliantly cast in his role(as are the others), so I say he does well, and his singing fits the role he plays.

    You promptly 'unfriended' her right?

    Maybe it was the forced, unnatural silences between the driver and that lass he'd just met, shoehorned in to create 'mood'.

    /didn't get what all the fuss was about Drive

    I actually thought the relationship between Driver and Irene was one of the most beautiful and believable ones I've seen on a screen in recent years.

    The 'unnatural silences' weren't actually unnatural, for those two characters (and this is my reading at least) because they have such broken pasts and they're usually ill at ease with strangers that everything felt right between them. No need for words, and the silences were not uncomfortable, rather they were entirely comfortable. (I am a firm believer that when you are truly at ease with someone - whether that's a friend, lover, or family member - there is no such thing as an uncomfortable, or unnatural, silence).

    I think the relationship between them was hugely intense, and so much more believable and natural than a lot of forced relationships in other films full of quirky/kooky characters.

    I get that some people may not like the style it was shot, but for me it was a perfect portrayal, and I thought Gosling and Mulligan were fucking fantastic in this!

    I like both the actors, but their scenes together just didn't ring true at all for me. Also later on when he completely pulps that fella's head in the lift she didn't seem to mind too much that it turns out he's a fucking psychopath. I thought a lot of the violence in the second half was extremely unpleasant and totally unnecessary actually. Just not my cup of tea I guess.

    I thought the long silences were there because Gosling's character had aspergers.
    Anyway I didn't mind. Silence is better than filing the air with inane banter.

    Understood - the violence can be jarring I guess.

    I actually recall that Irene recoils from that moment in the lift, and it effectively puts an end to their ever having a meaningful relationship.

    I just double checked the synopsis on imdb to be doubly sure, and that is the case yes.

    Well not really. She looks terrified, but then is seen at the end hopefully knocking on his door. Definitely didn't strike me as believable, but each to his own :)

    Tomb Raider - 5/10

    At least it tries to be Tomb Raider. There are a few puzzles that they solve, a bit of platforming, big globe things they have to scale which blows up at the end...

    Ms Jolie is at her physical peak in this film and she is about as good a Lara that you would get at the time. Daniel Craig's accent annoys.

    The first action set price in the mansion is pretty good. The whole film just seems a bit hollow, lifeless and not especially engaging.

    I do wonder why two were only ever made, whereas the Resident Evil films just keep on coming.

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

    Probably because Jolie went on to bigger better things while Milla Jovovich has found her level.

    @craigy No. I might have led you to think that because I've referred to the character Driver ;)

    Pacific Rim 9/10

    Spoiler free.
    Its Robot Jox crossed with Godzilla and its fucking awesome.


    The sheer scale of this at times simply amazes, characterisation and plot goes out to the window as its all about monster robot mash ups. This is so much un Del Torro like feels like a Roland Emmerich film at times. At one point i was having a monster vs robot nerd orgasm..

    The introduction of the Jaegers into action was stunning. Gotta be seen on the biggest screen possible with the biggest bucket of popcorn.

    Forget the so so Trek and the overblown Iron Man, the summer of carnage starts with this.

    Apart from the rather shit car chase.

    But great film, the staggeringly brutal violence and the tender love story of two lost souls.

    The soundtrack is fucking epic too

    That is if you like electronic music with a heavy 80s influence. My girlfriend really doesn't so she disliked the music and found it a bit dull and she also said it was trying to hard to be instructive.

    I was fine with it though, I like the music of Drive and really like the film. If anyone thinks the pauses in Drive are difficult you should go watch some Pinter.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    What shit car chase?

    The 180-turn was a bit cheesy and at the start of the movie, when they get chased by the helicopter, the motor sound is off but other than that?
