    It's nazis in space of course expectations are low, I just didn't realised how low they needed to be :)

    Really can't see how the word hilarious can apply to Iron Sky though, the only thing I laughed at was the downfall meme other than that I just cringed through most of it and I'm someone quite partial to a bit of silly comedy.

    Maybe I was just in the right mood when I put it on.
    I'm quite partial to a cheese-fest.

    Deja Vu

    Deja Vu is a thriller about a terrorist attack that blows up a ferry filled with a Navy crew. Denzel Washington plays an ATF agent who helps the investigation. He's invited to join a special team that has the technology to view into a fixed point in the past.

    It's an interesting premise and while it follows the laid out path it's an excellent watch. Denzel Washington is always fun in action, the support cast less so, but they're not too detracting. The bad guy was interesting (I enjoyed watching him in Person of Interest), I would have liked to have seen more of him in the film.

    The film starts well, but unfortunately loses it's way near the end. To be blunt it goes all Hollywood, which kind of spoils it the good work from the beginning. I didn't mind the intent, but they should have tried to follow the parameters they'd explained earlier on. It would have been more difficult to accomplish, but would have made a more interesting story.

    Overall it's not a bad film, in fact it's quite an entertaining watch, but it could have been so much better.

    6/10

    We're The Millers - 6.5/10

    Jennifer Anniston plays a stripper. A good one at that.

    If you really need to know more then the plot centres around a pot dealer who creates a fake family, so that he may may move a huge shipment of weed across the Mexican border.

    It's one of those lewd, crude comedies whereby by the end of the film, the characters have undergone some kind of journey and become better people. There are the usual knob gags, swearing and the same old stuff you've seen before.

    It's not half bad though and there are some very funny scenes in it. Nothing that'll have you busting your sides with laughter but it'll make you laugh a fair bit. It has the usual outtakes at the end with one being particular hilarious.

    2 Guns - 5.5/10

    Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg have the chemistry and the one-liners, but the film lets itself down with an average, seen it all before script.

    This has been hyped up a bit as being a new kind of Lethal Weapon type action film. It nowhere in the same league as that but it's watchable enough.

    Two different agents get set up, they then team up and try to find out what's really going on. I really didn't care when it came down to the climax of the film.

    If it wasn't for the chemistry between the lead actors, it would have been a poor film. The action sequences are fine but they hardly get the adrenaline pumping. There's nothing you've not seen done better many times before.

    I did like the characters though, so I wouldn't mind some kind of sequel. Just hope they put some money into the script.

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

    @Trowel remake! Haven't seen the original. I assume it's 500% better than what I watched.

    Django Unchained

    This is a fun film, not one of Tarantino's best, but well worth a watch. Jamie Foxx plays a slave freed by a bounty hunter and they team up to try and free his wife who is still being kept as a slave. Don't be confused by the cover, this isn't a western (although it has western film elements).

    It has a lot of humour throughout and is a strange mixture of silly and serious. For the most part the balance is spot on, but in places it makes the film drag a bit. Django is a decent character, a little bit larger than life, but the bounty hunter who rescues him at the beginning stole the show for me. He is a lot of fun to watch.

    Leonardo Di Caprio does a good turn as the Southern plantation owner, but Samuel L Jackson plays his usual character as the main house slave. It works really well. All in all it's a recommended watch.

    Noted the absence of this film in this thread (or I don't read it enough) sooooo..

    The Lone Ranger 70%

    It's the unoriginal-blockbuster-in-a-dustbin.

    It really does seem like every idea anyone involved ever came up with has been chucked into the (dustbin) mix, resulting in a film which seems to mix-up/confuse genres and styles (and pace, and plot..), but never keeps still long enough for you to get a close enough look at them. Actually, it does get a bit static mid-film, but when I finally noticed it picked up the pace again. It felt shorter than 2.5 hours, although a re-watch will probably drag.

    Strong (enough) characters help, particularly Depp as Tonto. Yes, Tonto - not Jack Sparrow. You won't think of Sparrow when he gets going, as Tonto warrants some empathy, although he's perhaps a bit wooden, and Depp may or may not be phoning it in - who can tell? The Lone Ranger himself is Ok, but the other characters don't warrant a mention. Oh, apart from the horse. Hurrah. However, it's that sort of film.

    Bottom line: If you don't like Depp, don't bother. Otherwise, it's worth a punt.

    Confusing review? Good.

    Ted - 1/10

    Tedious,unfunny, repetitive, one-note drivel. I literally didn't laugh even once.

    On a similar note, last night I watched:

    The Inbetweeners Movie - 4.5/10
    Lacking any comedy at all really. Had one or two moments, but other than that it was pretty poor.

    Ted is shite.

    I did like the trailer trash name guessing though.

    The crude humour is just bizarre, why is it funny.

    There were a couple of moments like that which might have raised a smirk if they hadn't been in the trailer.

    Animal Factory (2000) 8/10

    Had this sitting on the shelf for years, and only just got around to watching it. The DVD cover does little to help the film, other than mention Willem Dafoe, who along with Edward Furlong do a great job of playing the part of two cons. The biggest surprise was seeing Mickey Rourke show up as Jan a cross-dressing make-up wearing con. As prison dramas go, Animal Factory is quite good, but no match compared to the brutal Midnight Express or Shawshank Redemption.

    How I Spent My Summer Vacation

    It's a decent enough action film and MG does play a good action role here.  I know he's a twat in real life, but he's friends with Jodie Foster, that's got to count for something right?

    Anyway, 7.9/10

    Righteous Kill

    Vigilante serial killer / cop drama.  Robert DeNiro is on top form in this, steals the show really, even from Al Pacino, who also gives a good performance. 

    8.5/10

    I sort of want to see it, and sort of don't want to see it. I've read it contains a lot of 'F' and 'N' words, and comes in at 3hrs. Inglourious Basterds disappointed me, as i found it somewhat boring. The Kill Bill films were ok in a fun way, but no match for the might of Reservoir Dogs, Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown, three films that made me like Tarantino. I thought it all started going wrong for Tarantino when From Dusk Till Dawn arrived. The first half of the film was excellent full on Tarantino, and the seconds half was total sh-t. It felt like two films bolted togather, it felt like Tatantino was having some sort of breakdown. Let's not forget that other film, Bullet Proof. That was Tatatino being 100% self indulgent, a total B movie. Heh.

    Dark shadows 3-10 depo is a very overrated actor

    Beautiful creatures 4-10 not a single beautiful part of this movie

    Silver lining playbook 9-10 Jesus this film is good, thought it was just going to be fluff but was actually well written/ acted

    It did bring up one issue though, Jennifer Lawrence was rather attractive and on a quick wiki search it turns out she is 24 with actresses getting hot in thier early twenties at what age does it get creepy for me to find them attractive (luckily I am only 28 but it must be weird if you have a daughter that age)

    The Hobbit

    As a fan of LOTR I've been putting off watching this as I thought it was going to be shit. Turns out I was right. Dull characters, dull story, and every scene was doused in shit CGI. One of the main strengths of LOTR for me is that everything looked and felt real. This just looks so fake. In fact it reminded me a lot of the Star Wars prequels at times.

    Pointless cash in of a film.

    Iron Man 3

    Was ok once it got going. There was way too much non Iron Man boring action in the first hour. It was a bit DKR in that respect. Took itself a bit too seriously, but eventually became a passable action film. But I'd kind of seen it all before as well. Meh.

    Because despite looking similar, one is a massive story that's been compacted (interesting), and one's a short story that's been bloated (dull).

    The Hobbit has got to count as one of the most cynical cash grabs in recent movie history.

    Watched The Good, The Bad and the Ugly for the first time yesterday. Fucking awesome. I really can't believe I had never seen it before. Excellent in High Def, Eastwood was one hell of a smooth fucker in this.

    I enjoyed The Hobbit first time i saw it but i've not been able to sit through it again. It's just too bloated, & they're actually putting out an extended cut of it soon.
