    Warm Bodies. I wasn't expecting much given that it's ostensibly a teen romance comedy with zombies tacked on, but the execution is both funny and clever. It manages to avoid being overly sentimental, which is no mean feat given the subject matter. Well worth a watch. 7/10.

    Warm Bodies.

    R meets Julia. R is a zombie, he belongs to the zombie clan. Julia belongs to the human survivor clan.

    So R(omeo) and Julia fall in love and have to overcome the differences between their rival families. I can't give a rating because I only watched 20 minutes.

    Creep

    Creep is a fairly decent low budget British horror movie. A young woman takes the last train and finds herself trapped in an underground train station after being attacked. She is then stalked by a mysterious who is killing everyone she encounters.

    It's a good watch, the suspense builds nicely. It does suffer from some dodgy acting and stupid decision syndrome, which is a shame as the rest of the film is very well done. It balances the gore and the creepiness well, in some ways it reminds me of The Descent, but not as good.

    It has a similar claustrophobic feel and using the underground as a setting works well. The loneliness of it adds to the film. Well worth a watch.

    7/10

    Looper.

    This wasn't what i was expecting. Which is a good thing in a way. A great premise, a nice mix of b movie action (the constant shotgun shots were great and funny) and actual depth to the movie which i didn't think it would have in regards to what is at stake but with the kid and the mum as well. I did spend quite a bit of the film wondering where it was going, and i wouldn't say i was totally absorbed by it, but the last 30 minutes gives it quite a punch of an ending, and constantly offers something to you, its quite generous.

    Not sure how i'm going to rate it yet. i would say a 7.5 for now. But i'm still thinking about it.

    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.

    Pretty much a British version of Carlito's way

    Dredd

    Quite enjoyed this. Mega City One was more Croydon than futuristic city for the most part but once inside the block the fact it looked more like a guys dressed as Dredd going to convention in 2013 rather than a grim future went away and I settled into a great action flick with Urban playing a decent, if a little underwhelming, Dredd. Rest of the cast were forgettable but served their purpose.

    All the slow mo shots were a bit poo. While explained with the drug I found them tediously dull only there for a 3D viewer to go "ooooh" and "Aaahhhh" at I imagine. Hasn't that rubbish died off completely yet?

    Still 3D nonsense aside a surprisingly good outing for Dredd. If they do a sequel I hope they up the production values though.

    The Wolverine

    Really flawed but it's refreshing to see a superhero films that is both character-driven and self-contained. More like this, please, but better.

    6.5/10

    Watched a few more over the weekend and now have time to get my thoughts down.

    Angel (1984) - 7/10

    The everyday story of a 15 year old honours student in high school who earns her money at night as a prostitute on Sunset Blvd. Not to be confused with the excellent TV series of the same name.

    This was one of those films that came out in the 80's which got the same kind of notoriety as The Exterminator and become one of the films that you had to see on VHS, especially if you were 15 like I was when this came out.

    Watching it now, it's not half bad and quite possibly ripe for a remake. Most of the characters reminded me of other people. Typecasting ahoy!

    ChloŽ Grace Moretz - Molly
    Christian Bale - The psychotic nutter
    Sam Elliot - The guy who looks like Sam Elliot
    Jack Lemmon in Some Like It Hot - The drag queen and Molly's pimp. That may take some doing though though.

    It's quite grizzly in places and the subject matter is controversial, even by today's standards. As far as 80s revenge/sleaze/psycho films go though, it's good. There are a few sequels, so I'll end up watching these at some point soon.

    Parker - 4.5/10

    The Stath! Vick Mackey from The Shield! J Lo! What a combination! What an exceptionally average film!

    The Stath extends his range in this film by disguising himself as a priest and putting on some make-up early on and even has hair. Do not be alarmed. He's soon back to his baldy best and beating people up all over the shop.

    I've no idea how close it is to the books on which it's based on but he's potentially got himself another franchise here. The plot is about The Stath looking for revenge.

    The main problem I had with this is quite simple. Not enough of Michael Chiklis. Sure, there's the dull, plodding plot, J Lo being J Lo, a lack of tension and it all being totally predictable . However, had they had more of Chiklis vs The Stath, the film would have been so much better but the plot didn't allow it.

    I'm a big fan of The Stath but a few of his recent films haven't been that great. He's got a couple more films coming out before he revs it up for Expendables 3 and Fast & Furious 7, so here's hoping things improve. I'll watch them regardless.

    Pusher (2012) - 7/10

    The UK remake of the Danish original is a very good film which sees a drug pusher in a world of shit after a botched deal.

    I can't say how it compares to the original as I haven't seen it. The plot is very good though and this version is well acted, paced and has the right mixture of tension and humour.

    It's interesting watching his world turn upside down and how he tries to get out of the mess he's in. All the characters are bastards though but I couldn't help mostly liking them. Certainly worth a watch if you want a slightly different take on the whole gangster genre.

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

    I actually was watching Parker as an in flight film and had to miss the end as they turned off the entertainment for landing. I was not at all bothered. Says it all really.

    Berberian Sound Studio 9/10

    Excellent creepy movie only let down by a somewhat weak third act and a shit title. If after watching too much Hollywood dross you want to be reminded what good film making is, this is the movie for you.

    Django Unchained - 7.5/10

    Good story (despite the predictable fate of the characters) and acting. Violence was wonderfully stupid, so much so I was laughing during the final fight seen. Not a western fan nor was it anything new from Quentin (he's quite predictable), hence not a higher mark. But it kept me entertained and didn't feel that long.

    End of Watch - 7.5/10

    Nice to see the regular street cops getting a look in. No superheros. Nicely shot, gritty and cool soundtrack, but predictable ending. The foreshadowing and family build up was quite cliched.

    Star trek into darkness - 9/10

    Watched it on high quality 'DVD' and its fucking ace.

    Its an extended episode of jim kirk at his best. Dunno what u lot were all whinging about pages back. This is pure star trek. Might be an alternate timeline but it still fucking great.

    Dredd 8/10

    Wasn't a major success and most people I know hated it but I thought it was pretty good and will no doubt watch it again.

    A Bittersweet Life (2005) 8.5/10

    Really good. Slick, with super polished fight sequences. Got to admit, I found the twist at the end hard to take, and didnít want to believe it. Then again, it made all that went before make more sense.

    The World's End - 7/10

    I'm a Pegg fanboy and I'll concede this wasn't their strongest work, but I still enjoyed it thoroughly. Weakest of the trilogy but enough to keep me very entertained for a few hours.

    The Flying Scotsman

    2006 sporting drama with Jonny Lee Miller and Brian Cox. Fact based and all about Graeme Obree who was an amatuer cyclist who broke some world records on a bike he built himself, partly from old washing machine parts.

    He broke the hour record and other track pursuits. Very complex guy who suffered from really quite bad depression.

    I have also read book of same title and the film's not bad, especially if you're into cycling.

    70/100

    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.
    As a kid of the 80's I just don't understand why the studios continue to release all these trashy remakes that completely miss the point of the original film. Apart from of course to squeeze a few quid out of the audience.

    Dukes of Hazzard, Knightrider, etc.
