    Superman - Man of Steel

    It was ok, nothing special. Predictably po-faced and lacking in colour. The action scenes were boring and uninventive and hard to follow, which is unforgivable for a film of this kind with a character who can basically do anything.
    The shakey/hand-held camera effect irritated me within the first few minutes too. I don't understand why it was used for certain scenes at all when a static shot would have been more sensible. It's not dynamic or interesting like it thinks it is.
    The bad guy was quite good. Cavill was ok but not really pushed. Lois Lane wasn't slutty enough.

    6/10

    The World's End

    Stupid but quite funny in parts. It reminded me of Doctor Who, but I'm not a Doctor Who fan.

    6/10

    The plot really and the kind of enemy they encounter - Humans replaced with Robots, their personalities assimilated - that kind of thing, the general sort of campy, daft, sinister tone Doctor Who exudes too. Little England gone weird.

    Ghost In The Shell 2.0 (2008) Blu-ray Dispointed/10

    Blu-ray offers two options, none of which are satisfactory.

    Option 1 - Watch the original Ghost In The Shell (Ghost In The Shell 2.0) with Blu-ray picture quality with the addition of CGI. It seems a really odd thing to do, to take a film, and replace scene’s here and there with new CGI versions (of the original). The CGI is good, but like all CGI it could be better. The really odd thing is, is the decision to mix two different styles, hand-drawn and CGI ?

    Option 2 - Watch the original Ghost In The Shell, non Blu-ray standard, with a picture quality that fails to match that of the original DVD (I have the DVD also, and the contrast looks better on the DVD).

    I would have preferred a 100% re-master for the Blu-ray. If they wanted to do a complete remake using CGI, then do that.

    The American

    Quite enjoyed the slow pace and not much going on in this film. Maybe just in the mood for it and not knowing anything about it before hand. Terrific boobs on show as well. End was perfect.

    7/10

    IP Man - 9/10. I love a decent martial arts flick and this is bang on. It stays away from politics of the japanese invasion of japan and just basically says, "they invaded, killed lots of our people and caused starvation" and that's it.

    All about the kung foo and its great. There's another one on tonight on film 4. Ip man the legend of a grandmaster. 23.45. Ill be home just in time for it!

    Fantastic film, one of the highlights of the last few years for me, but then I generally love slow films. Very cool, very atmospheric, and with the cinematography you'd expect from a famous photographer shooting a film.

    @UncleLou

    Totally agree, Lou. Outstanding film, more people ought to have seen this movie.

    No robots, no people flying in the air, no werewolves, no spaceships, no aliens. Just a simple, well done film.

    Finally got round to watching Django and I love it.

    Great acting, great action, and quite funny too. As usual, Di Caprio is great and even Samuel L Jackson is pretty good.

    9/10

    The World's End
    7/10

    IT is quite funny once it gets going - several nods to their other films (cornettos, fence vaults etc) but the Simon Pegg is far too annoying in this - over the top and generally too much like an American trying to play the part of a brit. I think Star Trek had gone to his head. The rest of the guys were much funnier.

    The Conjuring - 7/10. What it does, it does well, but it's also been done dozens of times before. It sticks so rigidly to the possession horror template there's very little in the way of surprises, but it keeps up a good atmosphere anyway.

    Hot fuzz.

    Holds up very well, loved every second. I forgot just how brutal this is! Love the flying kick into an old. Women's face...

    9/10

    Shaun of the dead

    Not quite as good as I remember, a bit jarring as it splits between comedy and darkness. Still good thou.

    8/10

    With those rematches can't wait to see the third part of the trilogy tomorrow.
  • Deleted user 23 July 2013 08:39:07
    Not sure how balanced the torture stuff was. The message seemed to be very clearly "torture works and is really important" to me.

    Predators - 5/10

    Pretty bland stuff unfortunately. Kinda, slightly interesting-ish idea on paper, maybe, but the film ended up being uninspired and very predictable.

    The Japanese guy gets a samurai sword battle with a Predator, you say?! The seemingly normal doctor turns out to be a psycho, really, I'd wondered why he was part of a group of killers??! He came back for the girl, well I'm flabbergasted!1!one?/!

    The Raid - 9/10

    Much much better! Surprisingly stylish and pretty tight film. Kept the pace up and kept me interested throughout.

    I should hope so, considering it's about 5 minutes old.

    Funny, I think Shaun has just as many tropes as Hot Fuzz, just about a different genre and uses all the same tricks as well.

    It definitely has better comic timing though.

    I think Shaun of the Dead is the weaker film because I like and appreciate zombie films. The last half hour is pretty awful.

    Hot fuzz has perhaps one too many twists in it, but, for me, it hits the right comic notes again and again. One of those films where I laugh at new things every time I see it.

    i love hot fuzz, but as a westcountry man, it hits home quite a lot. Also i grew up watching stuff like midsommer murders which it parodies down to a tee. so yeah i love it.

    SOTD is great too though.
