    I didn't like Micmacs at all. Generally I like Jeunet a lot, but this one was just irritating.

    @kalel Completely agree about the irritating part.

    Quite looking forward to his next film though: The Young and Prodigious Spivet.

    Star trek Into Darkness. It isn't what Star Trek used to be but I really liked it. Minor spoilers below.

    I loved:

    The Klingon designs, especially the articulated scout ships like great, tattered carrion birds. The whole primitive and alien feel for the Klingons was a refreshing rethink on their species, with just enough nods to the originals.

    The use of colour, and the bold decisions especially in lighting. Peter Weller's blue-lit eyes and Khan's blue cell are particularly clever - red is danger in this film (the Daystrom attack, the Section 31 bomb) but these guys are given just enough blue to make it ambiguous.

    Benedict Cumberbatch is absolutely brilliant. but I loved what they did with his role as well - the malleability of their trust in him and especially Kirk's flip flopping on whether to believe him, which has strong dramatic irony from what the audience (and old Spock) knows.

    Some of the set pieces were stunning, especially the space jump which was breathlessly intense.

    Bruce Greenwood's sideburns. Yes.

    I didn't love so much:

    The send up of teh end of Star Trek II, as acted by children. 'You'd better get down here' and Spock sprinting off the bridge had none of the controlled urgency of Kirk in STII. I liked more what they changed about the dialogue than what they kept in. And the warp core interior itself looked bonkers silly, although I'm hardly coming to that scene with fresh eyes.

    The unsatisfactory ending. Segue into a series?

    Still, 9/10, a better film than its predecessor (and Pacific Rim).

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    Interview with the Vampire

    I'll confess that I went through an Anne Rice phase many years ago, it started of course with the first novel 'Interview with a Vampire', while many might blame her for the current trend of turning them into teen romances, at least she kept them as monsters. Charming monsters perhaps, but still monsters.

    As with the book the film tells of Louis, a grieving and morose landowner from New Orleans centuries ago turned into a vampire by Lestat, it then tells the story of his life over the centuries. Brad Pitt does a reasonable job of the ever miserable Louis, as in Meet Joe Black he plays the urbane monster well.

    Tom Cruise wouldn't have been my first choice to play Lestat, he lacks the stature for starters. However he does play the role well and gets across the devilish fun of the character. There's a few other well known names dotted throughout the film. I think it's fair to say that they all ham it up a bit with their performances, but in context it works.

    In parts beautiful, in parts horrific, this is a decent vampire film and a lot of fun to watch.

    7/10

    Guilty pleasure movie for me. Cheesy nonsense really but it's a nice sprawling epic, and I'd take it over Twilight any day.

    Actually, worse than Labyrinth is Once Upon a Time in America as there's that whole scene where we end up watching her undress.

    This must be the place

    Sean Penn is a retired rock star (looks like a cross between Ozzy and Robert Smith).
    A deep character but depressed – he retired because some of his fans committed suicide to his music.

    He goes to the USA to see his dying father but arrives too late. He decides to track down the Nazi who tormented his father in a WW2 concentration camp. Lot of strange adventures ensue.

    I enjoyed it. The Sean Penn character is likeable and magnetic. Although he is ugly and softly spoken he is a ‘people person’ and liked / loved by many.

    Quite a sombre film as he attempts to ‘sort his life out’ but ultimately satisfying. Recommended.

    7/10

    Queen of the Damned

    Although it is the sequel to Interview with the Vampire this is a very different beast to the first film. Nobody from the original is in this and it has a much younger, more goth music video feel to it. In a sense that's not necessarily a bad thing as I quite enjoyed the music in the film.

    The story centres around Lestat who has woken after a century of slumber and decides to go public with who he really is. This angers the other vampires and makes him a target, meanwhile the queen of vampires has arisen and seeks to make Lestat her king.

    It's a fun watch even though it does stray into romanticising vampires, although they do remain monsters. The music video feel keeps the pace quick and punchy. Unlike the first film it lacks quality, the cast do a reasonable job, but no-one really stands out, except for Marius, for some reason I enjoyed his character more than the others.

    Overall it's entertaining enough, far from great but a fun watch.

    6/10

    The film is rather weak, though I remember really liking the soundtrack back then.

    One thing I actually enjoyed about Star Trek was the storylines. Piss poor in the latest one.

    Second the take on Klingons though. Thought it was good.

    From Russia with Love (1963) 7.8/10

    Not as good as say Dr. No or Thunderball. Blu-ray Picture quality is good, or as good as they could make it taking into account the source material. My biggest criticism would be the over use of the bond theme during the film, they really over do it. Something else, the opening sequence, plays the Bond Theme, not the theme From Russia with Love, which is unlike other Bond films. Instead they play From Russia with Love during the film. Sure the film is from 1963 and hasn't aged as well as either Dr.No or Thunderball (two other Bond Blu-rays i watched this week).

    Also lies. It plays an instrumental of the Matt Monroe theme that segues into the Bond theme, which loads of the films do.

    The Collection - 5/10

    Saw-alike torture porn/slasher film set in an abandoned hotel full of booby traps. And like the Saw films it's entertaining without actually being any good.

    Despite a hilariously awesome start featuring a nightclub and a giant set of lawnmower blades it never really did anything that hasn't been seen before and isn't as gory as these type of films need to be.

    The set up would make for a great survival horror game though.

    Pretty disappointing after District 9. Very formulaic, and shockingly boring for a sci fi action movie.

    The Hunt.

    Danish film about a man accused wrongly of abusing his best friends daughter.  We know he is innocent from the start as that is made very clear but the film shows how something like this can spiral out of control.

    Some really blood boiling scenes.

    Not an easy watch, but a cracking film with great acting and a tight script.

    9/10

    Edit:  Catch it on Netflix
    Great movie, thanks!

    It takes a slightly complex/subtle issue and portrays it with clarity.

    For example, the scene with the teachers perched together and trying to portray themselves as unimpeachable and impartial, and only doing the right thing, when in fact they are insidious cretins who can't resist the righteous satisfaction of condemnation.

    That could be a hard thing to portray, but because the protagonist is the accused and you're seeing it from his point of view it works really well. If they had chosen to make his innocence ambiguous throughout the film instead of clear from the start it would have ruined it.

    The parents have a sort of Pascal's Wager in the sense they can't risk giving the accused the benefit of the doubt because of the hideousness of the allegation.

    Reminds me a lot of the three kids from West Memphis who spent 20 years of their lives in jail for a crime they didn't commit (see the excellent Paradise Lost documentaries), in the sense that it shows the flaws of judgement we have when it comes to repulsive crimes.

    The end is also a great reminder of another important point in these situations, which I won't spoil.

    One of the most frustrating movies I've ever watched, and thrilling as well.

    9/10

    Annoying Kid Fucks Around In The Jungle Whilst Abusive Father Slowly Dies Of Boredom - 1/10.

    It's ironic that a movie about controlling fear to the point it doesn't exist is utterly devoid of tension. But there we go. It's also patently obvious at this point that the only reason Jaden Smith even has a film career is solely because he has a famous dad.

    Let's start reviewing movies with the titles they should have had.

    Billy Madison, but with rednecks and David Spade - 2/10

    Also known as "How does David Spade get work? Oh, right, because he's friends with Adam Sandler"

    This was randomly on TV in the background, and had pretty much everything you'd expect from those involved. Kind-hearted loser of a main character, hot woman who is head-over-heels in love with him for some reason. Cameos from Adam Sandler's friends and members of his family. Poo jokes. Christopher Walken. Racist caricatures.

    Good if you like that sort of thing, I suppose. Apparently many people do.

    Probably one of the funniest and ballsy comedies I have ever seen. Also superb acting from almost everyone in the film. It's also got some great one-liners: Police spokesman: Yes I'd like to confirm that we shot the right man... but it was the wrong man who exploded
