    Recently watched 7 psychopaths and it doesn't hold a candle to this. Brilliant film.

    Jack Reacher 7/10

    Finally got around to watching this. Was initially interesting during the making as I like the books and Tom Cruise is usually pretty good. But the reviews around the release put me off. But finally watched it thanks to having plenty of spare points on my XBL account.

    I rather enjoyed it. Cruise was good, the film stayed pretty close to the source material and it avoided some of the cliches I thought it might fall into. Not a brilliant film by any stretch, but I certainly enjoyed it while it was on.

    The Ten Commandments

    An epic film of an epic story. Charlton Heston plays a good Gandalf.

    8/10

    The Crow

    Just as much fun as I remember it. An excellent action and revenge flick.

    Dredd 6/10

    Entertaining enough but nothing more and don't think it would hold up well to a second viewing. Would have liked to have seen a sequel with more budget but that might be unlikely to happen.

    The actress that plays Cercei or however you spell that name, was good as Ma Ma.

    The Cabin in the Woods - 9/10

    Damn Joss Whedon can write, how he managed to turn this idea into a feaeture film I have no idea. It's clever, funny, tense and super entertaining.

    I was put off watching it by some sniffy reviews on here, saying it's not scary, or as clever as it thinks it is. But fuck that, I must have said "this is amazing" out loud about 10 times.

    'The Place Beyond The Pines'...

    More like 'a film beyond my patience'. I'm all for a good character drama but that was ponderous and disjointed. One of those cinema experiences where the whole audience seemed disinterested - some girl a few seats away resorted to taking photos (with flash!) of her feet to stave off the boredom. 2hrs 20odd minutes of my life lost.

    Also, the whole Ray Liotta section felt unnecessary.

    P.S. Ryan Gosling's 'staring blankly and not talking' thing is becoming a deal breaker for me.

    4/10 (the acting was solid, RG aside)

    Lots of negativity for Pines. I've not seen it yet though but I may just wait till this comes out on DVD/BR or streaming.

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

    Actually watched this on Bluray last night. Watched the 3D version in the cinema and was wow'ed by it, guess I didn't really expect much. Back then rated it 9/10 (the 3D was excellent IMO) but would probably have to lower it to 8/10 now.

    What I found a bit weird with the Bluray is that the image quality, while top notch for 95% of the film, was very grainy and low res in a handful of shots. As if they forgot to switch the HD button on for those...

    It was for really dark shots yeah. Really poor quality with lots of artifacts and purple blacks.

    Also the 4 Judge bikes towards the end was terrible CGI.

    I think In Bruges has just about the best dialogue of any film bar The Big Lebowski.

    Most of the criticism of it is about how it doesn't confirm to preconceptions. It's not scary enough, the "twist" was obvious, it's not clever enough etc. People wanted something they'd built it up to be, but watching it away from the hype helps I think. It's just a really witty bit off silliness that ends with the extinction of humanity, what's not to like?

    This. I must've watched Drive three times now just to try to work out what you people see in it, but I just can't. I think I'm okay with that though. Just as long as you lot mention if any future films have got starey Ryan Gosling in, that'd be good, ta.

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    3 times? I sometimes don't watch something all the way through once if I don't like it.

    It's entirely down to style, I think really, which probably means it'll date badly. It's going to be one of those films that loads of older people are going to go on about years from now and young people are either going to just not get it or pretend they do to seem to have some kind of integrity. Like Star Wars.

    @beastmaster - I thought it was awesome and was lucky that the screening I went to in Cambridge had an equally respectful and interested audience. Its certainly a slow film and the long, languid takes allow the characters to breathe.

    People who spoil others enjoyment should be kicked out straight away. Cinemas should police these things better.

    This.


    Life of pi.

    Hard one to score as I enjoyed the beginning then the middle really dragged.
    The final third picked up and the ending was fantastic, truly wonderful and gave me something to really think about.

    Not sure it's preconceptions.

    The film spends it's entire running length making reference to horror movies. To then not be scary has to be a fundamental failing of the film.

    It's fine but given there are loads of films that have done the exact same thing (clever concept, sharp script, deconstruct a genre), AND delivered on the scares better and been funnier, it has to be marked down.

    Dark Shadows. I enjoyed, although I'm not too sure what it was supposed to be, comic horror?
    The story was weak, but johnny Depp is always worth watching, good soundtrack. There are not many better songs than nights in white satin. :-)

    I don't mind a slow film but this felt like the longest waste of my time ever.I've never been so uncomfortable sitting in the cinema. Save your money and if you really want to put yourself through this, rent.

    4/10

    Oblivion

    Another slowish film but i really enjoyed this.Loved the whole look and style.The story is very simialar to Moon,starring Sam Rockwell.

    8/10 what big screens where made for.

    Evil Dead 2013 - 60%

    Soulless remake of the Raimi classic. Jane Levy's fantastic as Mia but the rest of the cast are too bland to make you care. It lacks the ferocious vitality of the original. Even though it's very well shot & gory as hell, it's just not scary in the slightest.

    The Last Stand

    7/10
    Fairly predictable but it passed the the two hours just fine and I enjoyed it for what it was. All quite low key to be honest though; most of the good stuff was in the trailers.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?
