    Just finished The Limey

    Very watchable flick, enjoyed the non-sequential cuts and general style of the film. Nice and snappy as well, with barely a wasted second of screen time.

    Can see why it (presumably) struggled to find an audience at the cinema, but thankful that it's received recommendation in the years since. Been on the 'to watch' list for far a while and didn't disappoint. Thoroughly recommended!

    8/10

    On the weekend I caught:

    Ironclad

    Can't argue with the £3 I paid for a DVD copy - it was worth that for a one off watch - but for some reason I was expecting something more believable. In my mind I was expecting a gory, medieval equivalent to Zulu, but it was more throwaway popcorn affair. It sat quite oddly, as though it wanted to be something more than an action film but didn't know how to go about it.

    Decidedly average.

    6/10

    Paul Giamatti was ace though.

    Total Recall (2012)

    Ok. I quite enjoyed the first half, it went at a good pace, stylish, albeit humourless, and a bit stale. The second half, or last third is a cluster fuck of shitness. How many times do you allow the same people to live without it getting silly? In fact the last whole third is nine lives for several characters all put together with over brash hollywood ending.

    Went from a 6/10 to a 4/10. So a 5/10 :)

    .Olympus has fallen - 7/10

    Its original Die Hard in the whitehouse but with political slapstick.

    The president has liberal leanings, fucks it all up and then the right wing sort it all out.

    Funny as fuck... So far. Still watching it. Yep. No oblivion type plot reveal. Loads of plot holes and the usual corny american schmulge at the end.

    Should be categorised as an 'action comedy', or 'gerrard butler finally sells out to a morgan-freeman-in-the-whitehouse' film.

    Finally sells out? Gerard Butler sold out somewhere around the Tomb Raider movie.

    It's not a review. It's a live blog feed.

    If you can read this you really need to fiddle with your forum settings.

    Yeh, I think Brian Cox is awful. A hammy, overrated actor.

    And his portrayal of Lecter was terrible, contrary to popular opinion.

    I did enjoy his 'Wonders of the Universe' programme though. He makes learning fun. And he's so dreamy.

    He's the kind of person I'd take great pleasure in winding up in a very childish way until he snapped.

    The space one that is.

    Spring Breakers - 2/10 absolute stinker of a movie, girls are hot, which must be the only reason James Franco signed on for this. The character he plays is laughably bad. Think I'm in love with Vanessa Hudgens.

    Brian Cox is brilliant, heathens.

    Edit: Different adjective.

    Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 - 7.5/10

    Not as good as the first (which I would give a solid 9) but still managed to surprise in terms of humour and creativity. Gorgeous animation and environments, and possibly one of the cutest and most colourful films I've seen in ages. The story isn't as strong, and the side characters are given less to do this time round, but, being a huge fan of the first film, it's a worthy successor.

    Though I may have a slight bias since I personally know a lot of people who have worked on this film :p

    Sightseers - 90%

    Very dark, very funny. Thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Going to go back and watch Kill List again as a result.

    Matador (1986) 8.5/10

    Original. I watched the Dvd, and the opening scene picture quality made the film look older than was it is. After a while, I failed to notice this, and stuck with what is arguably an original story. The picture quality seems to improve over time.

    For sure not the sort of film you could watch with your parents in the room. Take the opening scene - it features the lead male masturbating to a video showing a horror film.

    Don't get me wrong, i liked it, but it failed to tick enough boxes. Maybe the next time I watch it, i might like it more, or maybe less.

    Over here, some rate the film 1/10 - which is harsh

    Rush - 7/10

    Really satisfying telling of the story - both leads are good, but Daniel Brühl is really great. The race coverage is very visceral and the feeling of peril is really well played. There are a few moments of awful "British telly"-ness, though given some of the supporting cast, that's to be expected. Overall a good, solid film.

    Bully (2001) 9/10

    Based to a certain extent on a true story. The acting is second to none. It's great to see a film full of unknowns. It's gripping stuff, never a dull moment.

    White House Down - 5/10

    Decent popcorn flick. Far too long at 131 minutes. Best part of the film for me was when Lance Reddick appeared on screen. You could play cliche bingo with the amount of them in the film, although I think they were putting them in on purpose.

    As far back as I can remember I always wanted to be a ninja.
