    Argo - 7/10

    It was well done and I liked it, however I felt it lacked any real tension.

    Despite trying desperately hard to inject tension at every conceivable moment.

    Byzantium - A vampire film by Neil Jordan (Crying Game, Mona Lisa), so you know its not exactly going to be Underworld, but I didnt quite expect it to be *that* much of traditional British Tale of Misery.

    Two female vampires live the most depressing existence you could imagine two immortals living, with the younger of the two desperate to break out of the shadow of the older one. She does this with the aid of the ginger guy who played Banshee in X-Men first class, whos irish accent was terrible in that, but fuck knows what he is supposed to be in this. It sounds like he has had a stroke and its incredibly distracting.

    But the mythology is good, bringing an interesting twist to the modern vampire and the story is generally well told. It drags a bit in the middle but its worth a watch.

    7/10
    I really, really want to see this, but purely because it was filmed in Hastings - setting for some of my favourite childhood holidays :-)
    Its worth a watch. As a sweetener, you get to see one of Gemma Artertons nips.

    Just watched it, excellent dumb action film. Stupid story and funny at points for the wrong reasons but lots of good fighting and plenty of fuck yeah team America moments. Plus butler's smoking.

    7.
    I got as far as the attack on the white house and was so bored by then I switched off. I've heard it's good when he's alone doing the one liners etc but I just couldn't take anymore. If such a massive assault scene can be dull as you know they've really mucked it up.

    Moon.

    Not quite what I wanted, but still a good flick. Not brilliant, but I enjoyed it. Mansell's soundtrack, as per, great.

    I quite liked Moon. I expected more, or something different to what the twist offered.
  • Deleted user 16 September 2013 18:33:34
    I thought it was brilliant. Probably my favourite film of the last ten years along with Let the Right One In.

    Thunderball(1965) 8/10 (Blu-ray)

    Iíve seen this before, the Blu-ray really adds so much more detail. Excellent picture quality. As with Dr. No (the Blu-ray) the audio has some issues, vocals are lo-volume, music and SFX are set too high. Good to see the use of real sharks, and not Cgi/Robot efforts.

    Needless things include, speeded up film footage used from time to time, scenes acted in front of pre recorded footage, which looks particularly poor during the end with the boat heading towards the rocks. Something else that was clearly obvious, during the scene that sees Bond swim past a shark in the swimming pool, it was clearly a stuntman during some shots. There are also some moments during some outside sceneís where there is dirt on the lens. Niggles aside, the film has aged well, not that I was alive back when it was made.

    It surprises me that 'it' is perceived as a twist.

    Great film. Big fan of Sam Rockwell

    Night Vision - 4/10

    A reality show producer ends up sleeping with a women and getting a lot more than he bargained for.

    If you watch the trailer for this film. it's quite deceiving. You get the impression that this is going to be one of those film where the dude gets tortured badly. It's nothing like that at all. If it wasn't for the constant bonking it would probably be an afternoon film shown on a TV channel you've never heard of. Or Netlix US which is where I watched it.

    The plot has good a good idea or two in there and it's not unwatchable. By that I mean I couldn't be arsed to do anything else. Not even select another film.

    Obsession - 8/10

    Underrated Brian De Palma film which tells the story of a wealthy businessman whose wife and daughter are tragically killed. Years later he encounters a woman who bears a striking resemblance to his deceased wife.

    This is one of De Palmas best films. As usual, it's got great camera work, a bombastic score and some tremendous performances from the cast. What is a bit different is that the plot is fairly straightforward. Not the usual levels of De Palma insanity here but John Lithgow is on hand to give the film some serious ham.

    An excellent thriller that's well worth watching. Special mention to the Arrow video blu-ray presentation both in the package and the transfer/extras. I can link to it but the page gives too much away with regards the plot, so I'm not going to.

    The Wild Bunch - 9/10

    Sam Peckinpah's classic western tells the story of an ageing group of outlaws and the men who are sent to hunt them down.

    The film really doesn't have that much a plot but it doesn't matter. This film is all about the characters, the atmosphere, the cinematography, the action and, of course, the violence.

    The shootouts in this film are bloody, brutal and still incredible violent, even by today's standards. The stunts (remember them?) are remarkable. One scene on a bridge is a particular highlight.

    One of the greatest westerns ever made.

    Star Trek Into Darkness - 7/10 Good film though i thought the ending was a bit of a letdown. Nice lead into the next film(s).

    Iron Man 3 - 3/10 Mainly for the SFX which were good as always, the film itself was awful. I loved the first movie and enjoyed the second but this one is a mess, the 'twist' was pants.

    This is the End - 9/10

    Deadly, best comedy ive seen in years. James Franco, Danny McBride and Jonah Hill were the standouts for me but everyone was in good form. Perfect film with a few drinks and a smoke

    Yeah, I didn't really see it as a 'twist', as the explanation seemed fairly obvious given the situation. That or he was just going loopy. I do think that, as with Source Code, it had a nice, but, somewhat unlikely, happy ending - in a sense.. It was about more than any revelation, which I did like.

    I liked the end - the sacrifice of one's self in order to help one's self, and how one's self recognised the futility in one's self and chose to help one's self instead.

    The Hobbit - UK Netflix - iPad - Headphones

    Laugh at the iPad reference in the title, but I think I have a valid point to make. Does the viewing medium effect the enjoyment output? I recently caught a bit of the Hobbit playing on a meaty screen at John Lewis and the visuals jarred with me. After watching it on the small screen, I think I enjoyed it more. At no point did I think this looks fake/CGI etc..

    Anyway, a bit bloaty and the handsome dwarves looked a bit out of place. Lovely set pieces though and nice to see the old characters again. Looking forward to part two.

    7.5/10

    It's more the channel as opposed to the medium. The medium is film.

    Sorry :p

    I hate clothes that come in small, medium, large etc. Why do that? Why not just put the actual size on, rather than a meaningless categorisation that isn't standardised?

  • Deleted user 17 September 2013 09:45:26
    It's even more ridiculous in the age of internet shopping. I need to know both the actual size, and also the fit (slim, baggy etc). Medium means fuck all.
