    You were being too kind to the TR remake. On a sidenote, try getting the TR tv series called Total Recall 2070. It's old, but good with some nice ideas from what I (barely)remember.

    So many things wrong with it. Let's talk about design, or lack of it. Production design meeting probably went like this...
    "So let's have your ideas for production design, what about New Britain?"
    "Minority Report."
    "Great, what about the colony?"
    "Blade Runner."
    "Fantastic. Okay meeting over."
    The atmosphere is the best thing about that movie.
    It's not outstanding but it's way above average - especially in the set-up phase of the movie.

    The wife killer robot is the worst thing in it and the reason why she's part of this movie is because she did/does the director.

    Remember Arnie disguised as a woman from the original? Someone who looked like her came through customs and the dialogue was the same. But our hero was disguised as the next person in the queue with that hologram collar.

    The props, the production design. What they did with the rest is a different story.

    This. It takes aspects of the original dick stories for Total recall and blade runner and makes it into a series. Had so much potential shame it got cancelled after one series. I would have loved more of this.

    EDIT: oh and as for the hobbit, I found it annoying as you could not tell anyone apart in the fight scenes. One of the things in the big fights in the LOTR Aragorn, legolas and gimili all looked very different so in big fights you could pick them out quite easily.
    In the Hobbit since they are all dwarves its hard to differentiate who is who in the fights.

    Intouchables 8/10 Crap title, great film. French subtitled, with terrific performances from all involved, uplifting.

    Stealth - 7/10

    Suprisingly enjoyable flick about an ai controlled millitary drone gone rogue that leartns to feel emotion blahdeeblah blah.

    Its a rip off of a star trek episode (voyager I think) but its generally okay and very watchable.

    Terminator salvation. - 8/10

    I totally rate Christian bale because he puts his all into every role he plays (apart from those batman films which were gloomy poo).

    Just to see him in this kind of role is a rare treat and the film is enjoyable. It loses a point for the lack of the epic war that was supposed to be going on.

    Kick-Ass 2

    All over the place. It reminded me of a 12-year-old kid who swears and says DICK CUNT FUCK BITCH etc. as much as possible, so people can marvel at how grown-up and controversial and rebellious he sounds.

    But the novelty has worn off.

    Robot and Frank

    I enjoyed watching this a lot. It's a nice simple idea, Frank is an old cat burglar who is struggling with the onset of dementia. He has trouble looking after himself and is losing his memory. His son is trying to get him into a home, but Frank refuses, so the son buys him the latest in robot helpers. The robot is programmed to improve Frank's help, but initially Frank is hostile to the idea.

    The film progresses in a gentle manner, Frank warms to his new companion and starts teaching it some of the tricks he learnt in his days of crime. The film is about Frank's relationship with the robot, in parts it reminded me of the better parts of AI. The robot's character is on the face of it a simple one, it obeys it's programming, but is quite clever in how it resolves conflicts in the decisions it has to make.

    It's a gentle film, but a lot of fun to watch and even manages to provoke some thoughts and a few chuckles. The performances from the main characters are all solid, although some of the supporting cast aren't great, but not bad enough to spoil the film. A recommended watch.

    8/10

    Pain and Gain

    Based on the true story of idiotic bodybuilders who kidnap and extort their victims.

    Strange one. Probably the best film Bay has done since The Rock but it is a little jarring with the comedy when you consider the awful things these guys did. However, some of things they did were just plain idiotic. Decent performances all round especially from Dwayne Johnson.

    6/10

    Monsters University.

    Meh. Jokes fell flat, no charm, no interesting characters and just not a patch on Monsters Inc. Had a couple of laughs, but the slowdown near the end almost killed it totally and the kids were all getting fidgety.
    Outstayed it's welcome and proved Pixar don't get it right all the time.
    I wanted to see Planes, anyway. Maybe next time they'll listen to me.

    Just thought - I was pissed off with the heavy emmitt traffic through Newquay, making us miss the first 5 mins of the film. Then after dropping the wife and kids off outside the cinema, I found the car park next door was rammed and had to go a few streets away then run to the cinema in the pouring rain. Probably didn't put me in the best mood for a film I didn't want to see anyway...So I'll maybe add a point or two tomorrow...

    3/10

    And if it ripped off 10 films... it would still be good production design.

    Btw. to make that clear, I'm not saying it's a good movie, I prefer the original. Although the old one hasn't aged that well. I saw it a few months ago and it didn't live up to the memories at all.

    Anyway - my point is, the production design is the best part of the movie - it's not outstanding but it's good. You find obvious similarities to two other movies and so that ticks you off - I didn't see those and so I see the production design just for what it is not hampered by the knowledge that they ripped it off. (according to you)

    On a side note, I also liked the three-breasts chick. She had more charm than both female leads combined - well, actually his wife had negative charm for me so that's not fair on Biel.

    @Daddy-Doom-Bar Agreed. It felt like one of those straight-to-video Disney sequels from the 90's.

    The Last Will and Testament of Rosalind Leigh

    I really enjoyed watching this, it has a real sense of dread to it. An old woman dies and her estranged son returns to the family home. He doesn't take the hint of it being one hell of a creepy house and inevitably the spooky stuff starts happening.

    What I liked about this is that it works the creepy angle rather than going for cheap shocks or gore. It took a little while to get going, but once it did it was an excellent ride. There was a moment I thought they were going to spoil the good work (don't worry I won't spoil it for you!), but I was pleasantly surprised that they handled it wonderfully/

    I also liked the metaphysical angle to the story. It keeps you guessing even after the final credits roll. This is an excellent horror film, well worth a watch.

    X-MEN

    Entertaining. Showing its a age a little bit now, but good entertainment with a bit of backbone. Pretty simple and reigned in, basically a two hour cartoon epsiode, but it kind of works for it.

    Trance, pretty good climax and good start but didn't enjoy the middle.

    Didn't like the female lead and it is probably Danny boyles worst movie.

    300 - 6/10

    Not seen it since the cinema, and though enjoyable it wasn't as good as I remember. The bits where they're not fighting were boring, and the bits where they are fighting were better in Spartacus.

    Auto Focus (2002) 8.5/10

    ‘A story about "Hogan's Heroes" star Bob Crane and his friendship with John Carpenter.’ - IMDb

    Picked this DVD up in Cex for 75p, it was worth every penny and more. The direction and acting are exceptional. Both Greg Kinnear and Willem Dafoe are excellent. Auto Focus is based on a true story. The DVD contains Bonus material including a documentary about Bob Crane.

    The story charts the downfall of Bob Crane (played by Greg Kinnear) who goes from successful radio DJ, progresses to television with hit show Hogan’s Hero’s, and meets John Carpenter (played by Willem Dafoe) who is into the latest electrical gizmo’s, which back then (the 1960’s) were things like Hi-Fi and huge video camera’s. Bob descends into a world of sex, thus destroying two marriages, his career, and ultimately his life.

    Harakiri, Death of a Samurai

    Tragic, overly dramatic, and fucked up.

    -The music is intrusive.
    -Either the acting is a bit wooden, or I'm not in tune with the cultural nuances of feudal Japanese society. (Which I certainly am not.)
    Whatever the case, I feel ambivalent about the exceedingly deliberate, solemn and ceremonial performances on display.

    +Cinematography is good.
    +Choreography is good.
    +Not a disposable action thriller like I half-expected it to be.
    +I quite liked it. It's definitely a downer though.

    6/10

    edit: apparently this is a remake of "Seppuku" (1962).
    The original is supposedly much better.

    It takes a while, but the third act is well worth it. ryan gosling as image, not actor, thats the best way to use ryan gosling in a movie.

    the kid who plays bradley cooper's son is also worth the admission alone.

    see it!
