    Stoker.

    Brilliant. Deliciously dark film that is all the better for going into it without any knowledge as to what it is.

    Fantastically shot, great performances and the story is really well told.

    Highly recommended.

    Humming Bird

    Bit of mess tbh and the film can't really decided what it wants to be, and just turns into Statham punching people in the face. The love story is also awful and makes no sense at all.

    Had high hopes with Steve Knight doing this and promising a film where Statham can show his acting abilitiy rather his fists.

    3/10

    Man of Steel

    Possibly the most sterile experience I've had in the cinema for many a year.

    Maybe that's being a touch harsh, as there's about 1/4 of semi-interesting stuff in there (the flash-back moments mainly), but it really felt as though the writers and director horribly misjudged the tone and design of the film. There was virtually no threat or emotion present, and the climax was laughable in its execution. Did anyone at WB actually watch the last half an hour before they released it?

    The biggest thing it had going for it was acting as stark reminder of just how great the original trilogy was (Superman 4 doesn't exist to me) and how underrated Christopher Reeve was in the role.

    4/10

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    @Blakester for me, all of Zack Snyder's films have that same sterile, alienating vibe. There's something about his style -- be it his approach to visuals or what, I'm not sure -- that empties films of their emotional grounding and soul. It's hard to describe.

    Always felt that way as well. I was on the Snyder hate train when he was announced for Man of Steel but the last trailer looked great along with the fantastic music. The film however is cold like his other films.

    The Stone Roses: Made of Stone - 10/10

    The Stone Roses played a bit part in my life when I was at university and they are my favorite band of all time, so this review is going to be ever so slightly biased. IT'S FUCKING AMAZING!!!

    Now that I've got that out of my system, I'll try and focus on the film itself.

    This is Shane Meadows love letter to The Stone Roses. The main focus in the film is the reunion after 20 years and the build up to the Heaton park gigs.

    Meadows digs up some great archive footage from where they were just kids hanging out together. He pretty much covers their entire story and covers the bust-ups and the problems they had with the second album.

    The film though doesn't dwell on the negatives however and there's some absolutely terrific footage in there.

    The rehearsal of Waterfall being one of them. It's just great to see the band having so much fun together and you can tell they're absolutely loving the music and totally getting into it.

    The other highlight is the Parr Hall gig they did in Warrington. Genuinely laugh out loud funny at some of the interviews with the people at the gig and to hear the crowd pretty much drowning out Ian Brown's singing.

    The film finishes with their magnificent rendition of Fools Gold at Heaton Park. The set list had a couple of *newie* tracks in there. None of which made it to the final gig. Still, at least they're working on something new and I can't wait to hear it.

    I was fortunate enough to go to the Heaton park gig and this documentary brings back a lot of fond memories both new and old. I think I got something in my eye a few times whilst watching this. For anyone who loves The Stone Roses, this film truly is a joy to watch.

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

    The same here, I keep on thinking about it, but not to sure I could put myself through watching it again. Is the Berlin wall of any real significance to the story?

    Miami Vice 5/10, almost the definition of the vacuous shallow action film. Like Bad Boys but without the sass and Will Smith somehow being charming.

    Colin Farrell wears very baggy clothing throughout which I guess is supposed to be a nod to the original or something but just make it look like he's really let himself go. And I honestly laughed at the body doubles they shipped in for Jamie Foxx and Naomie Harris - a 400 pound steroid gorilla and some sagging porn star with the most gigantic arse, they could have both been white and it would have been less jarring. Plus blah blah drug smuggling blah blah undercover blah blah Miami blah blah explosions.

    Don't bother.

    Hansel & Gretel

    7/10 its alright. It is a standard vampire hunter flick with witches instead, but its okay. How he discovered insulin I do not know. Maybe I missed that part? Enjoyable if predictable romp.

    I enjoyed Miami Vice as much as you can enjoy a movie where you can make out literally no dialogue for the most part. Nice soundtrack and pretty pictures though.

    Prometheus (2012) 6/10

    Now all the hype has passed, I thought it was about time I checked out the film, the Blu-ray to be precise.

    Picture quality is good as is to be expected. Special FX are impressive, and I loved the locations inspired by HR Giger. For me, this is where the positives end. For the first hour I found the film boring, and the second hour wasnít much more interesting either, thank god there wasnĎt a third hour to endure. I went into Prometheus never expecting anything to do with Alien, as I knew Iíd be disappointed, and planned to take the film as a stand alone film. I did find myself comparing it to the original Alien, the way the characters emerge from their sleep in those pods, the crew meeting up, there being one black person, it closing with a single female against a monster, not that there was anything like the same amount of tension compared to the closing moments of Alien. The cast was pretty naff too, and failed on every level to match the cast of Alien. As for the Alien right at the end, even that didnít look right.

    All in all, and big thumbs down. Iíll be selling the Blu-ray as I doubt Iíll want to watch it again.

    Not as good as the first one, but those minions are still awesome.

    Changed my ringtone to a minion one. I love those little guys.

    Nonsense. This shits all over the first film which had a woeful first half.

    Better screenplay, taut writing, not an ounce of screentime wasted, sharper dialogue, superior comic timing, and entertaining from start to end. I completely lost it at that music video riff.

    Absolutely superb piece of entertainment. They basically took all the good things from the first film - the second half of the film basically - stripped away anything that was even remotely padding, completely discarded that boring as fuck first half and dialled the entertainment value - slapstick, dialogue, minions, Agnes, Gru+Lucy - up to 11.

    Best of all, after a long time a whole bunch of us friends went together. About 7 of us and we were all pissing ourselves by the end.

    Gobbledygook!

    I have the exact opposite view. I thought the sequel was 'bigger, louder, more gags, more minions' but less charm, less genuine warmth, and less of what made the original appealing to me: Grue going from from despicable villain to reluctant father.

    Sequel had too much going on. I was bored by the villain, fed up with the overused minions, and after a while, I thought the entire thing turned into dull, saccharine crap. No interesting character growth (except for Grue getting over his fear of women, which was sweet), no sense of peril, and utter predictability throughout.

    I didn't hate it, but it's not even in the same league as the first.

    Opinions, eh?

    4/10
    This was just lame. First one was ok fluff but this was so toned down. Had none of the crazy shit of the other film (didn't feel like it anyway); though at last it didn't have the comic relief buddy this time round.

    You dare to strike Scurrcules!?

    @Scurrminator The film took itself far too seriously and turned into a bit of joke for me. The first had the right tone of cheeseyness but this was trying way to hard.

    @khaz Agree with everything you say here and it seemed most of the audience of the cinema did as well considering how loud they were laughing. I would add that it was a stark contrast to This Is The End, which had only a few minor laughs in its entire runtime.

    About the first black player to play in the National Baseball League in the States in 1945.

    Pretty decent film with Harrison Ford hamming up screen as the owner of the Dodgers. The downfall for me was the actor playing Jackie Robinson was a little bit weedy compared with the actual person.

    Chasing Mavericks - 7/10

    Already available in the US on Blu-ray since February, but saw it at the cinema this week. I thought such delayed releases were a thing of the past. The surfing scenes are absolutely fantastic and there were solid performances throughout. Although a few liberties are taken with the story in typical Hollywood fashion, I cannot understand all the negative reviews.

    Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters

    It's competent enough and fits in well with the post-modern movement of retelling classic fairytales in cinema, but it has no real spark. Some neat ideas which basically fall flat and a plot which has no structure and just unravels.

    That said, it's entertaining and managed to hold my attention throughout, so it's not all bad.

    Not a patch on Red Riding Hood, for instance.

    6/10

    Reading about all those gritty comic book adaptations.
    Gritty fairy tales.
    Gritty Star Trek.
    Yep, it's gonna be gritty Star Wars, you'll see.

    I was thinking, what else is there to repackage and sell in a gritty fashion.
    Turtles...
    And quelle surprise, there will be a gritty version with Megan Foxhole.

    If somebody wanted to make a satire about all that gritty movie reimagininnn it wouldn't be recognized as such - just another gritty movie.

    @Dangerous_Dan


    Star Wars is a sequel not a reboot, so will be in the same style as the previous films.

    And Turtles actually began life as quite a gritty and satirical comic, so it would be nice to see that side finally realised in a film.

    However yes, generally there's too much gritty these days.
