    Snow White and the Huntsman

    I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. It's not a perfect film by any means but it has a story that makes sense, an appealing aesthetic look and good use of CGI. Theron's performance as the desperate and unhinged antagonist is very well done, and papers over the cracks that are Stewart's two facial expressions and Helmsworth's ropey Scottish accent.

    7/10

    Lawless - 7/10

    Not a bad movie but the ending seemed a little light. Although I guess it being based on a true story had something to do with that :) It needed more Gary Oldman too.

    Frenemy (2009) 6/10

    The whole reason for checking this out was because Zach Galifianakis (The Hangover) is on the cover, along with two other characters. Reality is, Zach Galifianakis is only in the film for one scene. Putting that to one side, the film has some funny moments. I wasnít sure what to make of Matthew Modine. He comes across like a cross between Harrison Ford and Dennis Pennis. To be honest, the script isnít all that.


    This is the cover I have.



    Both covers display Zach Galifianakis like he is a main character?
    Quick tip, Zach Galidinakis is only good in Bored to Death, Tim & Eric Awesome Show Great Job and Between Two Ferns.

    Everything else he has done (including the two Hangover sequels) is very mediocre.

    World War Z

    Not a whole lot to do with the book, and a bit too PG13, but still one of the better recent zombie flicks. The waves of zombies evoke a sense of panic and urgency usually lacking in these kinds of films.

    Also, the ultra-short incubation period does wonders for the tension.

    8/10

    The Manchurian Candidate (1962)
    I'm on an old movie remake trip this month, been watching the originals and have to recommend this film. I thoroughly enjoyed it!

    8.5/10!

    Oh and it's also the first film I've ever seen her in where Angela Lansbury doesn't sing or solve a crime!

    John Carter - 8/10

    Without delving into the lightweight, whimsical Martian factions and their fairytale stylings, I rather enjoyed this. Good cast, hamming it up in the right places, and a tad dark in others, slightly surprising for a Disney flick and a faint glimmer of hope for any SW films they'll churn out. A Flash Gordon for these times, I'd say.

    Inseperable - 8/10

    Right. Here goes. A Chinese office type (trading in medical prosthetics) begins to undergo a mental breakdown, full blown psychosis, where he imagines a new neighbour (Kevin Spacey) and begins to set out to turn his life around, which involves vigilante justice in superhero costumes amongst other capers.

    Phew. Utterly mental film, and it slowly unravels the plot as you watch, as well as your mind following it all. Spacey is a delight throughout, and the mind boggles as to how he's starring in a Chinese-language/produced film, but by god it works.

    A New World - 7/10

    Fairly well played drama following the attempts of the police to subvert the succession of a Korean crime syndicate after the chairman's death, and the undercover officer at the center of it all. Oldboy playing the veteran handler, and a decent cast wasted in typical gangster clichťs, with twists galore and punctuated with brutal violence. Standard stuff, but well crafted.

    The Campaign is pretty good - crude for the most part but occasionally sharp.

    Wolverine Origins - 65%
    Haven't watched it for a couple of years, and it wasn't quite as God awful as I remember. It made a nice change to watch a superhero flick that wasn't overly dour and ultra serious, like most others have been over the last few years.
    It has major issues (The total mishandling of Deadpool being the most annoying) but it's watchable. And at least Gavin Hood could keep a camera steady during the OTT action sequences, something that can't be said for a lot of other big name directors nowadays.

    World War Z


    Pleasantly surprised, to be honest. As a zombie flick it manages to avoid a lot of the associated cliches - characters, for the most part, are pretty rational and sensible (Very minor spoiler - Stuff like the troops riding bicycles to the aircraft and the fact that nobody tries to insist that they're absolutely fine whilst concealing an infected wound).

    Some extremely impressive wide, overhead shots of the chaos are mixed up with some nice close-ups of the action, and the film pretty much nails the atmosphere of mass-hysteria and panic that you'd expect. Only a few duff lines in the script and what seems to be a cameraman with hemophobia mar an otherwise smartly paced, fairly original and entertaining adaptation.

    Worth a watch if you can stomach Brad Pitt being cast as an attractive white dude who seems to be the only person in the world trying to save it.

    7/10

    I now feel slightly better about the cinema again, after Iron Man 3 and a handful of others not sitting right with me.

    Ace in the Hole - 8/10

    I stumbled across this yesterday, and after discovering it's actually considered a bit of a classic I decided to watch it.

    It's an old black and white film from the 50s, which I know some people have issues with. Kirk Douglas plays an unscrupulous journalist who moves to a small town in New Mexico after being fired from just about every big coastal paper. After a year of nothing happening, a man is trapped by rubble...

    A surprisingly searing document for the time, and Douglas is terrific.

    I think I'll re-watch the free BR copy I received with my PS3 before the new one comes out. I didn't think much of it either the first time. I'm hoping 'The Wolverine' is a much better film.

    Pacific Rim 9/10

    I loved it. Growing up as a fan of Gozilla films shown late night on Channel 4 in the U.K. and Mecha anime like Robotech aka Macross there was a good chance I would enjoy it but not a certainty as the abysmal Transformers film showed. I'm also a fan of Guillermo del Toro and he is probably the reason why the film works so well. He brings an attention to detail, feeling and humour that makes this film incredibly enjoyable; it's a simple action film that harks back to something older like 'Top Gun' rather than a more modern 'Inception'. We see well worn places and machines giving a feeling of realism with minor details adding to this like logos on the jaegars inspired by those from World War 2 bombers. There are archetypal characters but these are ones I cared for like in Star Wars, we also have the odd cheesy line in there too; I enjoyed their minor arcs and in particular the actress playing the young Mako was fantastic with her scene reminiscent of those from GDT's Pan's Labyrinth. Whereas Michael Bay turned a childhood series into a sleazy nonsensical mess, even in the context of giant robot beings, GDT brings a genre to life to meet it's full potential.

    Skyfall - 7/10

    On second viewing the second half of this film seems very, very silly. Perhaps a step back from the more 'realistic' Bond of Casino Royale. Also too long.


    Tomorrow Never Dies - 5/10

    Taut, but ultimately a bit flat.


    The World Is Not Enough - 6/10

    There is a kernel of a good film here, but the execution is messy to say the least.

    Monsters University 5/10

    Not a patch on the original, the concept is good, but the film is too focussed on the annoying Mike and not enough on the more likeable Sully. Whose character seems oddly disjointed, like a load of his story arc was cut out.

    Wasn't particularly funny, unless I missed a lot of the in-jokes because I haven't been to an American University and have only seen Animal House/Revenge of the Nerds a few times. Though the John Belushi inspired Art got a few laughs and the cabin scene was well done.

    All in all a disappointment, watch the trailer the best scenes are in it, along with a few scenes that aren't in the final film.

    Due Date. Funny enough I picked up that film at the same time as Frenemy, both for about £2 each. Due Date sounds a little like Planes, Trains & Automobiles, based on the gumph on the rear of the DVD cover.

    Evil Dead - 6/10 - Atypical remake that changed some of the original elements around but has no point in existing.

    GI Joe: Retaliation - 4.5/10 - Um...Yeah... Lame , bad writing yet some decent action scenes.

    Snitch 7/10 - A decent film and a good performance from dwayne johnson

    Pacific Rim. 9/10 for the spectacle and I suspect 7/10 once the dust has settled. Very much like GdT did Independence Day but in a good way. It also has the coolest Russians since Rocky IV, some near future helicopters with staggering lifting capacities and outstanding creature and mech designs.

    Great action, minimal shaky cam, and a little bit weird too.

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    The Debt (2010) 8.5/10

    Watch-able stuff. The story centres around a group of 3 people on a secret Israeli mission to bring to justice a notorious Nazi war criminal.


    The cover don't do the film much justice.

    Senna

    Just finished the directors cut, first time I have seen this.

    Excuse me, I have something in my eye...

    Skips some of my favourite memories, eg the saving of Erik and the flag found in his car, but I don't think they could have crammed more in without it being 10 hours long.

    Few reviews...

    Seven Psychopaths 8/10

    I understand what people mean when by "It's not as good as In Bruges" but at the same time, it's still a bloody great film. Sam Rockwell is excellent in it, quickly becoming of my favourite actors.

    I guess the fact it was all a bit "meta" might have annoyed some people maybe, personally I enjoyed that. Film goes along at a good speed, constantly enjoyable and never dull.

    All in all, don't understand the criticism. Not the masterpiece that In Bruges was, but not as far off as some would have you believe.


    Zero Dark Thirty 7/10

    Not a lot I really have to say about this one. If you like this kind of film then you'll like this, not groundbreaking stuff. The plot is obviously interesting stuff and the film tells it competently enough.

    There was one stand out scene for me, the part where Jessic is killed which I thought was really well done. Even though the outcome was so signposted, it wasn't dull and was actually surprisingly suspenseful.

    Other than that, nothing that really stood out. Perfectly enjoyable film in that genre, won't pretend to know enough to have noticed the accuracy issues but they're to be expected really. Doubt many people will go in expecting a full historical account.
