    After iron man 3 checked out "kiss kiss bang" bang, great fun very watchable and dialogue ia great. Plots a bit nuts but i believe this is the point. Well worth a sunday afternoon watch.

    8/10

    "I saw devil"

    Very intresting revenge film, starts off vey well but the last act is a drag and the whole thing feels a bit pointless and avoidable.

    6/10

    Life of Pi

    Visually spectacular, despite an over-reliance on ropey CGI.
    Aside from some arresting scenes - a lifeboat drifting in an ocean of stars, for example - I thought that the best-looking parts took place in Pondicherry, at the beginning.

    (The effects look good, but often lack weight and seem 'wrong'.
    I think they alternated between live action and CG for Richard Parker: at times he is utterly convincing, and yet at others, he looks like he stumbled straight off a Star Wars prequel.
    Also, the whale looked ridiculous).

    The novel is immeasurably better, as is often the case. The film lacks dramatic weight and loses a hell of a lot in the translation. Still, it's a good visual representation of the book, and it does retain some of its spirit.

    7/10

    Source Code 7/10

    Gets itself a bit confused in places, and the whole Source Code project is nothing more than a sloppy fit around the groundhog day aspect, which in itself is incredibly hurried and solved with unsatisfactory speed and convenience. But somehow it holds it together, the characters are unfussy, and the movie doesn't linger for too long, drifting away amicably.

    Les Visiteurs (1993) 8/10

    Been meaning to see this for years, and now I have. Jeno Reno is his usual great self. In short, the film see’s a pair of Medieval types transported into the future and encountering stuff they are no used to, telephone’s, cars, toilets, that kind of thing. Their aim, to return home, to the 12th century. What I loved, other than the humour, was the fast pace of the story, which never lingers for long from one scene to the next.


    While the image above shows the correct ratio, my DVD cover look's squashed vertically, and the person to the left of the yellow car is missing (out of frame) not to mention image has been flipped. It is the ARROW FILMS release. Also, the film picture is square frame ratio.

    Here it is: (ARROW FILMS dvd cover)


    Should have gone for the Blu-ray with it's ratio of 2.35:1

    It makes more sense now. ARROW FILMS simply took the VHS cover and squashed it, fools!

    Primer

    As a simple story about 2 friends making an amazing scientific discovery and how they deal with it, I found it very enjoyable. It felt quite realistic, which is probably what they were going for. The strain on their relationship as they take the discovery to the limit and beyond is really well played out.

    There's also time travel but I didn't even attempt to follow it in the last half hour. It's also quite an interesting take on that though, that isn't afraid to leave you to figure it out yourself.

    8/10

    Starlet - 9/10

    Finally, a bloody superb indie amongst the dross !

    Tells the tale of a 21yo Valley girl*, and the unlikely friendship she strikes up with an 80something lady, after purchasing a Thermos from her yard sale.

    Don't read any more about it, and go in blind like I did and it slowly unravels it's little secrets in magnificent fashion, although as a warning for some it is extremely slow and languishing in pace. It takes it's time, but all the better for it imo, some truly great moments and scenes.

    *(Ernest Hemingway's great-grand daughter !)

    That's the best Primer review I've seen. Even better than the xkcd timeline.

    Good Day To Die Hard - went in with low expectations, wasn't really disappointed. Not quite as terrible as I'd been lead to believe, but still not anywhere near good.

    It also suffers from the Dark Knight syndrome of everything happening with perfect timing despite the utter randomness of the whole thing. Such as when the guy is killed in the sauna. How did they time it so that phonecall A) happened when he was there and B) at the exact moment he was getting a massage?

    In fact, the entire plot basically makes no sense. There are so many double and triple-crosses (which, ironically, are predictable as they come) it makes you wonder why they bothered going through the whole charade in the first place.

    The more I think about it, the more I dislike it. Which probably means this isn't a film you should be thinking about. Which also means I dislike it more anyway.

    @meme Not only did you not post a review of the film cover (or poster in this case) but you also posted spoilers. Shame on you. Shame on you

    ;)
  • Deleted user 15 May 2013 16:00:30
    I did consider spoiler tags, but the plot is so wafer thin it doesn't even really matter. It would be like spoiling the ingredients list on a packet of crisps.

    The Big White (2005) 8/10

    Not a classic, but entertaining all the same. Funny at times, slightly morbid at others. I’ve always found Robin William’s odd. The appearance of Woody Harrelson really livens things up. Towards the end of the story, when the loose ends are tied, one of the characters is shot dead, the film then proceeds with the remainder of the characters continuing on their merry way, complete with the type of music that might suit Trigger Happy TV. Odd.

    Ok I can't resist. About to watch Hansel & Gretel. I know it's supposed to be absolute shite (in a pre-boil bag).

    But I just fancy it.

    Keeping my expectations low.

    Going in!

    I quite fancy it too. Think it may be a guilty pleasure flick.

    Why does blacksea keep posting posters?

    It's surprisingly gory, though that's about all I can remember about it. It's a good background film.

    One of my favourite films of the last few years. Great script and performances. Took me by surprise too, which is always good.
  • Deleted user 15 May 2013 19:35:48

    Anything with Gemma Arterton is worth a watch, at least once. Alice Creed is about the best thing she's done. She has nice boobies too. HATED Tamara Drew :(

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

    Nothing to do with Arterton in a tight bodice then. Oh no.
