    Ip Man - 9/10

    "I want to fight ten men!". Holy fuck this film is just fucking fantastic. Not seen it before and it's got everything. A great story, superb acting from everyone and some of the most spectacular fight choreography I've seen.

    Will watch Ip Man 2 sometime soon.

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

    Prepare for disappointment. It's nowhere near as good as the first.

    Warm Bodies 5/10

    Different and rather muted. They basically ignore the zombie basics at rapid pace which is a bit jarring. Not enough humour or that many interesting parts. The Bonies were a neat side creation but just thrown in there. Didn't mind the premise but they could have gave it a bit more punch.

    A hot Kristen Stewart who could act was weird because it wasn't her.

    I didn't think Ip Man 2 was all that bad. Certainly not as good as the first, but I still enjoyed it.

    Oh for goodness sake, I've caught my scrotum in my zip again - Margaret Thatcher, 1986

    It's more of a brain dead ROCKY III action brawler with strong nationalistic themes. I think the other Ip Man is probably a better film than Ip Man 2.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Star Trek: Into Darkness

    Not nearly dark enough. Liking the alternate reality of the reboot. Liked the characters. Ambivalent to the story, and the escalating PERIIIIL! every ten seconds. Still enjoyed it.

    7/10

    Seems to be the general consensus that Ip Man 2 is shit. I've been advised to seek out a film called The Five Fingers of Death. Apparently it was called King Boxer (what a SHIT name) here in the UK. It's probably on YouTube in full.

    Robot & Frank
    I loved the realistic take on the near future. Having a household robot is described as something perfectly mundane. Slow understated film about a lot of things and with good acting.

    Sometimes it made me lol, sometimes it was heartbreaking, sometimes thought provoking.

    A tad too slow to be perfect but I'm still going to rate it as:

    A must see

    Plus it reminded me of the excellent website known as robot-frank.com

    Fight Club

    I just don't get this film. Or rather I do 'get' it, I know what's happening, know it's clever, like some of the twists and the fact that you can watch it a second time and see even more 'reveals' happening throughout...it just doesn't grab me.

    I think Norton, Pitt and Carter have all put in far better performances in other films, and while I don't dislike it, it just does nothing for me.

    Third watch now - I was sure on this one I'd understand the love. Failed.

    5/10

    Is there a character in the movie, who you can identify with or whose motivations you can relate to? That's often the reason why we like something or don't.

    Django Unchained - 8/10

    Long and felt slow at times because of it but was still fun. Needed more mysterious coffins.
  • Deleted user 20 June 2013 13:05:33
    I don't really see what's not to like in Fight Club. It's an interesting concept, whips along at a fair old pace, interesting characters and slickly written. It's not a bonafide classic but it's up there with the best films of the 90s.
  • Deleted user 20 June 2013 13:08:35
    Still one of Fincher's best films.

    I wouldn't disagree with anything there, other than the very last line.

    I don't dislike it, at all. I'm harsh with scores, so a 5/10 for me is arguably what it should be, didn't dwell up any bad or great feelings. It was just alright.

    One of the best of the 90s though, not for me. I appreciate it, I like what it's trying to do, or even does, it just doesn't do anything for me, positively or negatively.

    It does have Sammo Hung in it being awesome which does elevate it somewhat!

    I liked the Ip Man films, but the cheesy nationalism and melodrama sort of left a bad taste in my mouth. It's like China has caught up to 80s American action films.

    Make sure you do, lest I resort to linking to Rotten Tomatoes, Metacritic and IMDB ratings! I didn't feel the story was as good, and the villain of the film hams it up as much as possible, but it's still worth watching as the fights are well choreographed and the story is still alright.

    There is a massive whiff of pro china about it but it's always been that way in martial arts film imo. Be that Thai, Japanese, Chinese or any other derivations.

    Perhaps Fight Club doesn't date well but I remember seeing it in the cinema twice (2nd time was unintentional) and thought it was great at capturing what its like to be a young man on the cusp of the millennium.

    I'm not sure watching it 13 years later at home would seem so special.

    Jack Irish

    Bad Debts

    Jack Irish is an Australian thriller, with Jack Irish played by Guy Pearce. After losing his wife he quits his job as a lawyer and turns to doing odd jobs. When an old client is murdered he starts digging into what happened and is the way with thrillers discovers more than he bargained for.

    As well as the investigation itself there's other threads bubbling away in the background, the horse racing thread stands out as it has a couple of fun characters. Pearce does a good job with the main characters and the story progresses well.

    It's not an action based thriller, which I liked, sometimes it's nice just to watch an investigation unfold.

    Worth a watch.

    Black Tide

    Black Tide is another film starring Guy Pearce as Jack Irish, a part time investigator who gets himself caught up in another investigation. As before he finds himself in over his head. He's a fun character to watch in action and again it's good to watch the investigation unfurl without unnecessary excitement.

    The same background characters from the first film are back. The youth club in the pub, the dodgy horse racing pair.

    All in all a fun watch.

    7/10 for them both

    The Crow: City of Angels

    I loved The Crow, it was a fun revenge flick. I even enjoyed the third film, but this is a poor film. It follows the same pattern, the same basic story. A man and his son are murdered, he then returns to get his revenge.

    The main bad guy doesn't really cut it (although he does play a better bad guy in Firefly, so I'll forgive him for that) and Iggy Pop is mildly amusing to watch strutting his stuff, but the film lacks any charm. The lead is faceless and brings nothing to the party There's no decent one-liners and the fights are a bit rubbish. And the ending must have sounded better in someone's head than it looked on film.

    A pretty poor film, you should watch the original instead.

    3/10

    Dracula 2001

    While far from a great film it does have a few saving graces, first is the story. It's an interesting take on the Dracula legend, I especially liked the origin. It's also fun to see a young Nathan Fillion and Jeri Ryan in action.

    Unfortunately those points aren't enough to turn this into a decent film. It's not a terrible film, but if you're after some vampire action then there are better films out there.

    5/10

    The Chaser

    Brilliantly dark and violent thriller about an ex-cop turned pimp who needs to find one of his girls that's disappeared. The plot is unique in that the identity of the suspect is revealed early on, but it's the tension of the race to save lives before times runs out that makes this film a gem. Kim Yoon-Seok's performance as the lead is a excellent; he captures the range of emotions that this film takes you through with great skill.

    I have to warn people, though, that the level of violence in this is much more visceral than the Hollywood thrillers we're normally used to and the last 30 mins in particular may shock you.

    9/10
