    The Purge

    Takes an interesting premise and does basically nothing with it, turning into a pretty straightforward home-invasion thriller after the setup. But it's mercifully short (just over an hour and twenty minutes) so that's something, I suppose.

    4/10

    Jack Reacher

    Well, that was better than expected.

    It was really just Tom Cruise being Tom Cruise and I'm sure if I could be bothered to deconstruct it there would be lots to complain about (noticed a couple of fairly large loopholes while watching it), but I went with the ride and quite enjoyed it.

    7/10

    Heist, Gene Hackman/Sam Rockwell film.

    7/10 - enjoyable but SPOILERS after the first time the film reveals that the gang's MO is to con people into thinking they're doing one thing when actually they're doing the other, the entire rest of the film is laid bare as one obvious misdirection after another.

    Still, I like watching Gene Hackman chew up scenery :)

    The Kingdom

    8/10

    I really enjoyed this especially the ending which started to feel claustrophobic and very tense.

    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.
    I caught most of it last night and it's still an absolute stormer. It's fucking brilliant. It still looks amazing, sounds amazing, and their execution of the 'twist' even when you know it's coming is so well done throughout that knowing the film backwards can't detract from the pleasure I get watching it every time.

    Agreed. Hadn't noticed the mistakes, but the opening scene is fantastic. The ending's pretty good as well.
    I've only seen the first scene. I thought it was typical Tarantino stuff, all very pensive and tense, but also entirely predictable so I didn't bother watching the rest.

    Also, what intentional mistakes, and why are they intentional?

    He basically makes every film awesome by his presence. The Firm is a perfect example, if it wasn't for Gene Hackman there wouldn't be a single likeable character in it. There's loads of examples of similar things, Enemy of the State only really gets good when he appears or is on screen. He's just brilliant.

    This probably sounds a bit snobbish but I see Jason Statham and I expect mindless noise and violence, which seems like it might be fun, but ends up being like putting pizza and booze in a blender, whizzing it all up and slurping it down with a big straw.

    Mind you I bet even that sounds appealing to some people.

    @TarickStonefire

    No particular reason. It could have done with a bit more gore to be honest and apart from brad Pitt the rest of the characters were forgettable . Was just a decent jumpy zombie film. Maybe a 7/10. Not as good as 28 days later.

    You know you're in trouble when Pitt's performance is the highlight of a film.

    (I actually like Brad, but I think he makes for a much better supporting actor than a lead.)

    Ip Man 2 - 7.5/10

    Neither as terrible as I though it was going to be or godlike, it's still a very entertaining film that reminded me of Rocky 4 in more ways that one.

    The story isn't as good and the whole school vs school thing seems a bit forced and there just to allow of the odd giant rumble.

    The film's fight scenes though are just incredible albeit not having the same impact of those in the first film. I also like the way they bought back some of the supporting characters from the first film in as cameos.

    The baddie boxer and the whole English thing pretty much went into pure caricature as the "foreign devil" which needs to be beaten.

    Very predictable but non the less entertaining. Loved the end was well.

    I can imagine the first film being semi-autobigraphical and it wrapped up pretty conclusively. However, I think this one was a sequel they churned out to get more cash and they decided to base it on Rocky 4.

    Those who have seen it will know what I mean. If you've not seen these then the first film is a must see. This one is a very entertaining weekend afternoon time passer.

    Katy Perry: Part Of Me - 10/10

    Seriously, this film changed my opinion of her. I always kind of liked her but wasn't really sure how packaged she was, but after seeing this I'm in her camp all day long. I think she's awesome, I love the songs, I love what she does for her fans, and I love how loyal she is to the people who've been with her since the start. Very moving.

    I even shed a few tears at one point. What's the emoticon for a red face?

    Enjoyed it. Felt a bit disjointed and some odd switches of tone. Would have liked a bit more on the aftermath but guess that's for a sequel.
    Also enough with handheld cam!

    Zero Dark Thirty - 8/10

    Really good movie - well paced, solid cast, cleverly shot. Only thing that annoys slightly is the way the story evolves by nature in a very regimented and diarised manner, but that would be impossible to avoid given the source material.

    +1 to this. She's got some guts too allowing certain things to be filmed. She gets news that her divorce has become final just before she's due to take the stage in Brazil(?). It took some character to go up and do that. Also, being filmed without her makeup on. Bit of a shock but still most definitely would. Well worth watching.

    On the subject of documentaries.

    Restrepo - 9/10

    Stunning multiple award wining documentary which two Vanity Fair journalists spend 15 months embedded in a platoon, on mission in the Korangal Valley in Afghanistan. The title of the film comes from an observation post named after a medic who was killed early in the campaign.

    The film starts off with shots of the soldiers before they are deployed. All fresh faced and full of optimism. A stark contrast to what they are in the interviews after the campaign has finished.

    The Korangal Valley is basically situated less than a kilometre away from Taliban positions. A hellhole in which the platoon was under file every single day in the 15 month campaign, which is totally unheard of.

    The film is really upsetting in places too. They show the reaction of the soldiers a few just after a friend of theirs is killed. It also follows a mission 'Rock Avalanche' whereby they go into uncharted Taliban territory and what happens to them when they get there.

    A powerful, haunting film that will stick with you for a long time after you watch it. Not an easy watch but shows the horrors of war much more effectively than most Hollywood films you'll ever see.

    Very, very loosely autobiographical. There wasn't any duel with a Japanese general, and I kind of doubt he would have been able to dispatch soldiers with guns so easily. He chose to be a policeman; he wasn't forced to. And his rent troubles might have been in part due to his opium addiction, which wasn't even hinted at in the movies. According to a former student, he used a portion of the tuition money to fund this addiction.

    None of this is a huge problem - dramatic license and all that. And they're fun movies! But if you're looking at them for historical accuracy, best look elsewhere.

    And as you said, the second one is like a Chinese Rocky IV. And it felt appropriately old-fashioned and cheesy to me. It's like they're just catching up to the '80s!

    Man of Steel - 8/10

    Could just have used a liiiitle bit more humour dotted around for my tastes, but serves as hopefully a great start for a decent series of DC movies. I actually found it a bit emotional at points and thought all the performances were pretty solid. Zods motivations were good, in that he wasn't just 'a nutter' but believed he was doing the right thing

    Life of Pi

    I have to confess I wasn't expecting much from this film. From all the praise it has received I was expecting something pleasant, but i doubted it would live up to the hype.

    Well I was wrong. This is an amazing film. It tells the story of an Indian boy and his life, in particular it tells of how he survived when the ship he was sailing on sank in the pacific. Everything about this film is perfect. It's wonderfully acted, beautifully filmed and the animation is superb.

    I loved the animation on the Tiger, he doesn't say much, but he's a great character. I loved the T-Rex moment :-)

    Quite simply this a great film, one I'd recommend to everyone.

    Red Lights 5/10

    Wasn't impressed with De Niro' performance, the set up was quite good and some good performances from Murphy and Weaver but really felt like they were thought of the last 25 minutes whilst filming. Could have been really good if they made the ending a bit more..........for lack of a better word SOLID

    Enemy of the State

    A fun thriller that I haven't watched in years. Everyone involved puts in good performance, but Gene Hackman makes it as he generally does. Will Smith is pretty good in this as well. It's about a lawyer (Will Smith) who accidentally receives a tape that shows the murder of a congressmen. It looks at electronic surveillance, which is appropriate considering the news at the moment :-)

    It's well filmed and an entertaining watch. The story is well paced and builds to an excellent climax. It's also a bit of a who's who for actors, there quite a few known names in there doing bit parts.

    Great fun to watch and probably one of Will Smith's better films.

    8/10
