    Dark Tides

    On Sky at the moment and starring Oscar winner, Halle Berry.

    Don't bother. Dialogue is poor. Story predictable and incoherent.

    The Horseman - 4/10 (or 40% for the purists).

    Aussie revenge film about a guy who takes issue with a gang of pornographers who drugged his daughter, blah, blah, blah. It's Death Wish with comedy accents and a bit more cock and ball torture.

    Absentia - (Netflix) - 85%

    Another example of misleading box art and two stars hiding away something of a little gem of an indie suspense/horror movie.

    When filtered through A Better Queue it appears as one of the better rated horror movies on Netflix.

    Well made and acted, falls a little flat towards the end, but well worth a watch.

    Skyfall (2012) 8//10

    Watched the Blu-ray. In short, found the film to be better than Quantum of Solace, not as good as Casino Royale. The story is so so. I was slightly disappointed by the amount of slow scenes, and only really recall one epic moment, and that was the chase involving the digger and the train. The lack of gadgets and a bond girl didnít help. Didnít rate Naomie Harris and found her somewhat plastic. The appearance of Javier Bardem was the biggest surprise, as I like him a lot and never knew he was in Skyfall.

    The most bond-esque moment during Skyfall had to be the moment Daniel Craig floats towards the casino, surround my lanterns and huge dragon heads. Really loved all that stuff.

    With Bond films I really look forward to seeing the intro sequence. The Skyfall effort is good, although the sections that depict underground with brick pillars looked cheap. I loved the dragons!



    Edit: The stunt credits list is huge. Really don't recall seeing that many people do stunts.

    World War Zed 5/10

    Truth be told I don't like or appreciate anything zombie-themed and only watched this because I'd heard some of it took place in Cardiff. No zombie battles down chippy lane disappointed but I enjoyed some of the political commentary during the Israel sequence.

    @B0rked_Gamer don't think any of it was filmed Cardiff? Although chippy does look like a zombie apocalypse† on the weekend :D.

    Life of Pi - 9/10

    Stunningly beautiful film. Its films like this that show what HD/3D was made for.

    John Carter - 75%

    The Bluray has finally dropped in price so I picked it up for a second viewing and I'm still surprised it didn't do better on release. I thought the JRPG crowd would have gone bananas for it as it's basically Final Fantasy on Mars in places with the airships, city design and girls with swords.

    It's a shame the sequel will never get made as I quite like the characters and world but I suppose I can always read the books or comics to fill that hole.

    Flight. 7/10

    Predictably, it nose-dives at the end. Felt way too obvious, and occasionally tedious. Happily it's only two hours long, not the two and a half according to the lovefilm listing.

    Tucker and Dale vs Evil

    It is in the "so bad it's good" territory, but only just. The play on the "evil dead" premise is clever, execution much worse. It's mildly neat and somewhat entertaining, but never crosses into brilliance, despite showing some promise now and then.

    I find it hard to score, because I enjoyed it, but it left me emotionless, apart from a very slight arousal.

    5/10

    Cube

    This is a lot of fun to watch. It's based upon a simple idea, a group of people wake to find themselves in a maze of rooms. They have to find their way through the maze to find the exit. Unfortunately for them some of the rooms contain traps. Some of these traps are quite nasty and imaginative.

    The film manages a good balance between the visceral horror of the traps and the mounting pressure of their situation. It's a low budget film, but that doesn't matter as it is the story's simplicity and the balance of characters and their interactions that makes it an excellent film.

    With my Producer's hat on I'd say it would make an excellent game as well.

    8/10

    The acting in Cube is so bad I couldn't stand to watch it for more than 15 minutes. I think it's probably maybe almost certainly the worst acting in anything I've ever seen.

    I've seen worse, but yeah, the acting was pretty horrible. Still liked the movie though.

    The prequel ruined the series for me, it didn't fit with the previous film at all. The sequel was fun, I'm watching it now.

    I've always likened the Cube trilogy to the Japanese Ringu trilogy.

    The first was great and a stone cold classic. The sequel was awful and did nothing new or interesting at all, just tried to be bigger and more action packed. The prequel just messed with the story by trying to explain things which didn't need explaining and ruined what was good about the original.

    I agree with that except for the second feel, the added dimension did add some interest, making it entertaining, but not as good as the original. It was indeed just a rehash, but an interesting one.

    No guesses for which film I have just watched :-)

    Cube 2: Hypercube

    This is a fun sequel to the original film, unfortunately it isn't as good, but still worth a watch. The story remains the same, a group of people find themselves trapped in a maze of rooms. Again the rooms contain some fiendish traps that provide the same visceral splendour as the first film.

    Like the first film it's the characters that provide the suspense and help reveal the mystery of their situation. The main difference to the first film is the cube itself, it is slick development from the first maze, and brings with it some cool traps and effects.

    Overall it's an ok watch, however if you haven't seen the original then make sure to watch that first.

    The stuff they shot in Wales is apparently the new final scenes, the ones they reshot after they realised their original ending was godawful. So I found out by Googling just now.

    The Avengers

    I just saw it again on BR. Still loved it. The final battle sequence had its problems, but mostly I appreciated knowing what was going on, and where everyone was in relation to everyone else. This is something that you do not get from, say, a Michael Bay film. Even though they may look similar, they are not.

    And the characters were each given time to shine. Apart from Scarlett Johansson, who just seemed to be there to look hot or something, because she felt really out of place with the assorted superpowered people.

    And the Joss Whedon dialogue didn't annoy me so much, which was nice. That was one of the issues that I've had with his other films (eg. Serenity), where everyone is an overly clever asshole trying to out-wisecrack everyone else, which got tiring. In this, the wisecracking assholes are mostly the characters who are supposed to be that way (ie. Robert Downey Jr), and the others are more toned down.

    The characters fit, basically. And it's fantastic watching them together, with the bickering and all of that. It just works, even though it probably shouldn't have given how many characters and stories are involved.

    It works, and is enormously entertaining. I look forward to the sequel.

    9/10

    Possession (1981) I didnít get it/10

    ĎAn unsung masterpieceí - Mark Kermode

    Looks dated, but thatís to be expected. Audio hasnít aged well, although the camera work is interesting, and the acting good. Special FX are impressive. As for the story, I didnít get it, i think I got where it was coming from, sort of.

    Shoot 'em Up

    Splendidly silly. It goes from zero to mental in less than a minute and stays there until the end. This is one ridiculous set piece after another. It starts with a shoot out while trying to protect a pregnant women, he then has to protect the new born baby. Add to the crazy gun play we have the lovely Monica Bellucci as a lactating prostitute (the baby has to feed!).

    It's exactly what the title says and nothing more. A high octane and very silly action film. Great fun to watch.

    7/10

    If anyone with Sky Movies is looking for a film to watch tonight, I notice they've just added Hitchcock's Lifeboat - a stone cold classic.

    Shoot 'em Up is awesome. The filmaker's had their plan and they couldn't give a fuck how anyone might have thought of it. A carrot kill, FFS. How much more brilliant can it get?

    Apparently they filmed stuff in Falmouth. I did see a load of vans and filming equipment around when they were here, but didnt see anything in the film I recognized.

    Seven Psychopaths

    Not as good as In Bruges, but much better than I thought it was going to be. Great to see Christopher Walken in it, but Sam Rockwell stole the show. Some great scenes, and loved the way some elements intermingled, but still felt emotionally lacking compared to In Bruges.

    3.5* or 7/10 or 70%
