    Annoyingly, some of the stronger issues (in the book) did not come across quite as well in the film however, it wasn't bad ... certainly one of the better films last year though.

    Go watch 500 Days of Summer if you haven't already seen it!
    Thanks!! x. I've just watched the trailer and it looks fantastic. I will rent it tomorrow when I return silver lining.

    If you say you are feeling 'super romantic' this evening, just you wait until after you watch 500 Days of Summer.

    Giving U.S. Marine Enlistment: The Movie exactly the same score as Cool Runnings should be a bannable offence.

    Evil Dead (remake) - 3/10

    Scary ? For 12yos perhaps, but I'll bet even they're too busy drinking and chibbing each other these days to bother with this. None of the comical awfulness of the original, and the played-straight angle bored me to death. Gore didn't exactly do owt either, bar that strong finish - a slight chuckle was raised.

    Die Straight Hard to Video - 3/10

    No. Don't film it in cheap looking HD video. Don't open with an excruciatingly long-winded 20min car chase designed for the ADHD generation (OHH IT HIT A CAR ! AND ANOTHER ! AND ANOTHER ! WOW !) Don't let Willis disappear into an OTT caricature of the McClane character (I'M ON VACATION !), nor cast a bland, lifeless, empty persona puppet as his son.

    And don't pay 'homage' to the previous films by including/plagirising ideas and shots left, right and centre, because there's nothing original rattling in your heads.

    Points are purely for the nicely filmed explosions, all three of them. And that's being generous.

    Hard Target 7/10

    Probably not worthy of a score that high but I'm binging on John Woo films at the moment and this was one I had never got round to.

    This was a very solid 90s action film, with a few John Woo flourishes and plenty of plot holes. Van Damme punches a snake in the face, bonus point just for that and bonus points for Lance Henrikson.

    Hangover Part 3 - 3/10

    Amusing in parts, but overall just not funny anymore. Theres no actual hangover, waking up after a hard night drinking and trying to piece together what went wrong was fun, but this story was just a bit "meh", not a patch on the other 2.

    Funniest part was after the credits role

    Sadly I agree, completely ruined it. The movie never actually gets into a "Die hard movie" groove and felt flat from start to finish. I actually turned to my girlfriend in the cinema half way through and said "what have they done, this is pish"

    Repeating "i'm on vacation" several times was a bit of a cringe. How they can look at the other 4 movies and come up with this turd is beyond me.

    Fresh Meat (2013) - 8/10

    This is brilliant. Tribeca film thingy on virgin.
    Lots going on for a film about indoctrination. Really fucking good. It is quite gory. The ending drops it a point. (Its the very very ending though)

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    The Great and Powerful Oz - 6/10. Nothing amazing about it, and nothing terrible either really. It was a very meh movie. I think that Franco just doesn't have the presence to make it work. The other characters were forgettable too. Maybe kids might like it...

    Cube - 9/10
    Hadn't seen this for about ten years. Low budget, sloppy script and dodgy acting aside, it's still a great movie. I refuse to watch the sequels on principle.

    Frequency
    An unlikely meteorological event allows a boy (now grown up) to talk to his father 30 years back in time. Together they set out to solve an old murder mystery.

    Nice twist on time traveling. Yes, it has some logical fallacies buurt it's rather entertaining. It also taught me to stop think of films made in the year 2000 as "quite recent".

    Well worth watching

    I really liked Frequency. But a lot of that had to do with that Dennis Quaid is always excellent. In everything.

    Also, his Doc Holliday is superior to Val Kilmer's.

    Iron Man 3 (3D)

    Losing its charm, and seemed incoherent in many places. Robot suits getting their rumble on can still be fun to watch, but I checked out of the characters before even halfway through this one. Shame. Much preferred Avengers Assemble, where Iron Man played more of a supporting role.

    6/10

    I somehow managed to sit through Southland Tales last night. I knew Donnie Darko was a fluke.

    What an absolute load of shite.

    The Bigfoot Tapes. 3/10. Straight up ripoff of Blair Witch but with less tension, less fear, less everything really. There are a few scenes where the characters just talk and nothing happens, and they can pretend as much as they like that it is for character building and depth and empathy and that but it isn't, it's just filler. Slightly neat twist at the end. Sort of.

    And what are you left with? Two shots of a CGI black shape with red eyes running. Wooooo, scary.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Gangster Squad - 6/10 - Pretty enjoyable though entirely predictable. They got the 40's look down well though and Penn was pretty good as Mickey Cohen.

    Jack Reacher - 5/10 - It started well but really ended up going nowhere we have not been before. Interestingly there seemed to be a couple of bits of dialog left in the script that implied Reacher was physically imposing which should probably have been cut out once a midget was cast in the role.

    The last stand - 5/10 - It appears Arnie has forgotten what little acting ability he had in the first place and he really is getting too old for this shit. It did have a few over the top entertaining moments though.

    Django unchained - 8/10- Thoroughly enjoyable throughout though could have done with a better worked out ending. Django getting caught and escaping to go back again to candy land just did not work that well. The film does take a hit once Waltz is gone as well though I did think Foxx was pretty good as Django.

    God Bless America

    Netflix (US) recommended this to me, and as it was written by Bobcat Goldthwaite who I've always liked I gave it a go without really knowing anything abou it.

    And I was very pleasantly surprised. It's a dark comedy - think Falling Down meets Kick Ass - and the script is extremely sharp and funny. A lot of it does feel a bit generic but it kind of knows it as well, often with references to the films it is borrowing from.

    Well worth a watch.

    8/10

    Definitely agree. The end section seemed an excuse for QT to shoehorn in another lame cameo. Takes the shine off an otherwise glorious film.

    Yeah it does feel like it was only there for the QT cameo. Also after what Django had just done the idea they would take him alive seems a little implausible. They needed to work out a way to end it at that point which I am sure they could have done.

    Still I did enjoy it overall. It's a fun film that just goes a little off the boil towards the end.

    If you like BG, have a root around on iTunes (or similar). He has a brilliant stand-up comedy album that he recorded a few years ago.

    The Raid

    Not really a fan of martial arts films so a lot of the "wow" factor of the fight scenes was lost on me. Plot was okay though.

    7/10

    I'll never get my Orc looking the same again.

    Watched this last night too.

    Love martial arts films though so I loved most of the fighting. Got a bit of brutality fatigue towards the end when they double teamed the little bloke and he kept getting back up over & over.

    There was literally no plot though.

    72%

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    What do you mean no plot? It was get to the top of the tower and take out some bad guy who had done something or other.

    All the best plots can be written in a single sentence where the only conjunction is 'and' ;)

    Alright if plot was the wrong word, then I change it to "the premise that framed the film was okay".

    The Omen

    A good film, although I couldn't but wonder what my old man would have if I'd tried any of that shit with him.

    8/10
