    Cirque Du Soleil - Worlds Away

    This is a simply stunning display of dance and acrobatics. The story is a simple one, a girl visits a circus and is captivated by a trapeze artist. He misses his jump and falls to the ground, she rushes to help him and he is sucked into the ground to a magical world. Yes it's a love story and a good one at that.

    For once (for me at any rate) story isn't king, it's the spectacle that kept me glued to the screen. All kinds of acrobatics are on display and presented in a fantastic way. There's syncronised swimming, trapeze, rope work, trampolines and all kinds of crazy machines and characters. It's a great mix of form and movement.

    All the way through the dance is accompanied by an excellent soundtrack that highlights the visuals well. The visuals themselves are also worth mentioning, there's a range of effects that adds to the experience. This is an amazing and beautiful show, you should watch it right now.

    10/10

    Just watched it and its a very average gangster movie with very cliche characters and every scene has been done before in better gangster films.

    Pretty well acted though and some of the shoot outs are good. Yeah and the 40s sets, etc were nice.

    A generously given 6/10
    Deja vu.

    Already had a similar, if slightly less bashy, conversation a page or two ago about it!

    ... you got around to watching Easy A yet, Little Miss Ignorant?

    Kill List

    erm idk%

    Immediate reaction was "well that was shit", but after reading the film's thread on this forum and being honest about being influenced by who I watched it with (girlfriend's mom and her boyfriend) going "what's going on? This is stupid" etc, I think I need to watch it again to see what others saw.
    I thought it was shit also. Unlike you, i couldn't bring myself to watch it a 2nd time, and have since sold the Blu-ray, yes the Blu-ray, i wasted cash, quite a lot of cash when Kill List arrived. Total bollocks film, with total bollocks production values, and crap acting.

    I mostly really liked Kill List, but it all fell down at the end a bit for me.

    Flight

    Flight is an excellent film. It starts with two disparate lives, the first is that of a pilot who is a drunk and likes to mix that with drugs and girls. The other is a woman trying to shake her drug addiction. The pilot flies an airliner while drunk, but when disaster strikes manages to save most of the passengers onboard. It's while he is in hospital that he meets the addict and the film follows their relationship and the crash investigation.

    Denzel is always good to watch in action and this is no different. In fact everyone does a great job in their roles. John Goodman as the drug dealer provides some light relief.

    The flight crash is really well done. The rest of the film lacks that excitement, but that's fine as it's not what it's about. The pilot's struggle with his addiction and the investigation is the core of the story and is well filmed. It's an interesting story and while it's not the most original tale it is a very good watch.

    8/10

    Wrath of The Titans.

    Just wasn't as much fun as the first which despite not being anything special was at least fun to watch.

    Hard to hear what was being said a few times and not very well directed.

    @Baihu1983

    I watched that last night and I wasn't that impressed but agree it was entertaining enough for dumb blockbuster.

    At least Sam Worthington didn't look like a marine in Wrath.

    I'd take the original Clash of The Titans over either of the new ones anytime.

    Seen this myself, while it's good, it is nothing compared to seeing Cirque Du Soleil show live. It's impossible to capture their genius on film.

    London Boulevard (2010) 7/10

    Expected more. It stars among others, the Ray Winstone, but he donít appear until 41mins into the film.

    Lead actor Colin Farrell comes across as distant, just like Ryan Gosling does during Drive. Next to appear is Ben Chaplin (you might know him from Game On) and he is pretty good. Then come a whole host of faces from the past, including David Thewlis, Anna Friel (from Brookside), Eddie Marsan, Sanjeev Bhaskar (heís been in lots of TV stuff), Matt King (Peep Show), Keira Knightley, the list goes on..

    London Boulevard is slow, filled with lots of typical London gangster stuff (you cunt.. and all that sort of talk), without ever really being interesting. It lacks something.

    Well I don't think that sort of language is called for at five to ten on a Sunday evening.

    Give yourself £5 or Ĺ gig, you're worth it.

    So very true. I've been to two of their shows and it truly is amazing.

    Before the first one i was thinking it would be silly artsy-fartsy shite but about 10 minutes in i was oohing and ahhing along with everyone else and i found the whole thing utterly captivating.

    I saw Ka live a few years back, utterly mindblowing - the stage is like nothing I've ever seen. Unfortunately it's the one that woman died performing in a few weeks back :(

    The World's End - 6/10

    Doesn't compare to the first two. Made me nostalgic for Shaun and fuzz. Wished it was just pegg and frost, the rest of the cast felt out of place. And frosts personality change half way through jarred. Really dragged in places. The premise just isn't as good as the other films. Terrible effects too.

    But it has its moments, and is consistently funny, just not as funny, clever or entertaining as the others. It had the whiff of middle aged men trying to recapture past glories, ironically. SHAME

    Kill list is great. A film doesn't need to be coherent and constantly telling you what is going on. It has one of the most oppressive atmospheres I can remember, and its also funny. Ben Wheatley is one of the best filmmakers around.

    The Perks of Being a Wallflower - 8/10

    Enjoyed this, another example of a film being different (and superior) to how it has been marketed. There were a couple of irritating noodley-indie-movie moments however - specifically Emma Watson getting somewhat overexcited about music in typical indie movie fashion, and also the standing on the back of a moving truck in slow-motion with arms open wide - also in typical indie movie fashion. Ugh. But everything else was very well done indeed. Well worth a watch.

    Trance - 7.9/10

    Well, I certainly enjoyed this. A quality head-fuck. Not sure I fully understood the end, and you really do have to suspend your belief to get through it, but all the same it yet another example of decent film-making from Mr Boyle. Oh, and luckily only one use of Boyle's signature irritating stop-motion effect through the whole film - and it wasn't on corgis either. Nice.

    I really hate to point this out, but that actually was the whole point of the film; I know you say "ironically", but when there have been interviews with Pegg, Frost and Wright saying that that is the point of the film, reflecting that they're knowingly in that exact position in their own lives, you're a bit late to the party. So, is it ironic that you think it was ironic, when they were actually reflecting on how ironic it was they were making this film?

    Trance blew my socks off, easily a 10/10, knew it at every minute of the film. Loved how it was put together. Clever, cunning, snappy. Fantastic.

    Then again, I like appropriate use of capitals, spelling, punctuation and grammar too, so I guess we're all different!

    Although that scene where Reeve switches between Clark and Superman in the space of 5 seconds and back again nearly steals it.

    I saw Pacific Rim at the weekend and I bloody loved it. Crap script with massive plotholes but didn't really make a difference when it was just so much fun to watch.
