    A cashite. Off the back of positive reviews I was hoping it'd be a guilty pleasure, but it's a completely derivative rom com, awfully scripted and totally mis-paced - there are several occasions where it genuinely feels like a key plot development has been cut, not least the numerous times where the girls burst into a spontaneous routine which happens to be perfectly synched and harmonised.
    SLANDERER!

    It was a fun movie!

    *blush*

    Honestly, I thought it was perfectly watchable and deserving 7/10

    Gravity

    Visually beautiful. 3D is superb.
    I love the aesthetic of 'grounded' sci-fi like this; hopefully there'll be more of this type of film in the future.

    It's a shame, then, that they had to Hollywood it up so much. Some senes are cheesy as fuck. Needlessly so. Also, I'm no astronaut/physicist, but some of the events are questionable. The music is annoying and intrusive. Pulled me out of the film on several occasions.

    I was slightly disappointed, as this wasn't the 'revelatory' experience it was heralded to be... but the reviews on EG prepared me for that, so I ended up enjoying it for what it is. A tense and immersive space movie.

    6.5

    Basically - dialogue & characterisation meh, Clooney ok. Cinematography great.

    World war z.

    Miles better than I was expecting, was finding it very tense. Shame it takes a nose dive in the final forty minutes, luckily the first hour and twenty minutes were great fun.

    7.

    Hotel translvania.

    Again better than expecting and I was expecting it to be terrible.
    I cried.

    Elysium - 3/10

    Kind of proved to me that Neil Blompkamp(or however you spell it) is a bit of a one-hit-wonder. This is a tired mess of incredibly predictable cliches and tropes (the minute the dying child is introduced it's painfully obvious that Matt Damon will sacrifice himself so she can live instead of him), coupled with an overall setting that doesn't even make a lot of sense (So they had a fuckload of those medical units just sat in shuttles for no reason? They let people and workers die just because "oh, don't breathe on me Mr. Poor Person?). It's filled with massive plot holes and thoroughly illogical nonsense for the sake of hammering home the "OMG THE 1% HATE THE 99%" message beyond the point it needs to be. And the camera work is diabolical. The final fight between Damon and Sharto Copley cuts and shakes the camera so much they might as well have just pointed it at the floor the entire time.

    Production design is nice, but almost entirely lifted from District 9 anyway.

    Zero Dark Thirty - 8

    It was actually extremely strong throughout, despite being rather long at 2.5 hours.

    I particularly enjoyed the build-up and set piece showcasing the invasion of Bin Laden's compound. Up there with the most intense 'war' scenes I have ever seen. Largely, I think, because even if fabricated at all, you know that something along those lines actually happened.

    Some of the torture scenes were a bit morally ambiguous as well as actually being a little boring. Hence the lost marks.

    Bravo all round though!
    I couldn't stand it, it's only got worse in my memory. Ally McBeal: The Jihad Years.

    The end sequence is good, but I found it to be one of the most disappointing films of recent years. It'll teach me for believing the hype.

    The conjuring

    3 / 10.

    Exactly he same as all the other films of this type. Family moves into home. Non scary stuff yadda yadda. I nearly fell asleep virtually nothing happened and when it did I might have been watching a repeat of all the other nondescript possession/ghost films.

    Utter crap. 2 hours I'll never get back
    What environment did you watch it in?

    Did you watch it at night? In the dark? On your own. Not fiddling with your smartphone?


    I found the last 20 mins or so a tad hum-drum but it scared the crap out of me at times.

    I've seen hundreds of horror films but I'm finding as I get older they shit me up more and more (same with horror games). Don't know why.

    Sesh.

    Yeah, is a bit rubbish. I wasn't expecting an action film. A somewhat interesting drama with a tense ending but it was totally boring, even the end.

    This is a great film in places, unintentionally funny in others. Second time I've seen it and actually liked it better this time than my original viewing. Some nice ideas and the omnipresent big band music has a bizarre and unsettling effect.

    Keep swithering between 70% and 80%...

    Sod it. 75%

    Burn After Reading - 9/10

    Simply brilliant stuff. I've seen it for the third time now and it's still excellent entertainment. Silly but still intelligent stuff at the same time.


    Jiro Dreams of Sushi - 9/10

    As recommended over here in this lovely thread. Fantastic documentary. And as always when you watch a good documentary it leaves you with new thoughts and the feeling you've learnt something. I'm close to giving it full marks now that I think about it.

    Interesting little pop fact if true:
    Sean Connery's career was at such a low point when he read for the role that Columbia pictures refused to finance the film when director Jean-Jacques Annaud cast him as William of Baskerville.
    Brilliant film. Connery's easy-going character contrasts so well with the underlying tension and menace of the abbey. That scene with Christian Slater and the peasant girl... phwoooar. Hot stuff.

    I've got a couple to review as I've not been on EG recently.
    ------------

    World War Z - 2/10

    I normally really enjoy zombie films, and I was quite looking forward to this when it came out. Firstly, having read the book, I can confirm, its nothing like the book. Secondly and probably most importantly, IT WAS SOOOOOOO BORING!!! I love how the Dawn of the Dead remake mixed tension, comedy, gun-porn and issues regarding better to die or try and make it.
    I'm not going to go into too much detail, because I don't want to spoil it for those who want to watch it, but the zombies were very similar to the monsters in I AM Legend. They were overpowered, too fast, too strong, and seemed incredibly hard to kill. Not many of them were actually killed very often either. I'd actually say the main tension came from the end scenes. I could go on all day about the faults of this film. But if someone can tell me, how ONLY Brad Pitt and his woman friend, survived a plane crash after a grenade had taken out a plane, the plane happened to crash land in Wales which was handy, not only that, but the lab they were looking for happened to be round the corner from where they crashed. I mean come on, that is pure bullshit, as is the rest of the film. Rant over.

    ---------------

    Pacific Rim - 8/10

    I'm very familiar with the concept of this film, i've seen many japanese animes and read mangas which happen to be very similar. (Neon Genesis) *cough*
    The film itself was pretty enjoyable, I love mechs and monsters so I was very happy, I liked the cast, i'm a fan of SOns of Anarchy so liked the fact the Ron Perlman aswell as Charlie Hunnman were part of the film. The film was cheesy, I like cheesy films, action was good, epic visuals and the city destruction scenes were great. Also loved the monster designs, they were really well thought out and animated. The film is somewhat let down by the terrible comedy displayed by the scientists who were extremely annoying, the plan at the end was pretty rubbish. Plus, from the start, I thought to myself (based on the robots fighting style and the monsters they were fighting) why didnt the robots have better melee designs? Why arent their huge spikes on there fists, they do after all resort to a bar-room brawl fighting style. And then half way through the film it was like Oooo look, we have a sword! But all in all, good stuff. Its not gonna win any oscars, but I really enjoyed it. And if anyone can find where to buy Ron Perlmans shoes in the movie, let me know. They are so frikkin sweet!

    ---------------

    Seeking a Friend for the end of the world - 8/10

    I heard some pretty average reviews when I looked into this film, but I actually really enjoyed it. The concept is often one i've thought about just while i'm in my own world. In esscence its a rom-com in most ways, but if you watch it properly, theres a really interesting message, and its interesting to see how people deal with the inevitable apocalypse. It's a film that makes you think, and is very inspiring. It's not laugh out loud, but its not over mushy. Its just 2 strangers, on a road trip, and how they spend their last few days before the end. I thought it was a good mix of feel good comedy, romantic adventure, with that hint of depression thrown in as you know its all going to be over for everybody. Enjoyed it much more than I thought I would.

    Filth - 70% (FunnyDirtyBastard/10)

    I fear this may have been hyped up to me a bit too much by a friend and the reviews. It was indeed a good watch and James Mcavoy does a great job of bringing Bruce Robertson to the screen but it felt like there were a few too many holes for it to be completely brilliant.
    It's not often I get to say "It's not as good as the book", because I'm not particularly well read but... It's not as good as the book.

    One to catch on DVD.

    Spot on. The fact it turns into terminator is just abysmal. Terrible waste but at least Blomkamp could design some cool weapons for the next fps phenomenon

    There was a lot of hate for it when it came out. No idea why. I always really enjoyed it. People on this forum even tried to convince me that I did not really enjoy it the feeling was that against the film.

    It actually reminds me a lot of Blood simple. All the characters think they know what is going on but none of them actually do which is what causes things to go so horribly wrong. Everything that happens is due to misunderstanding the other characters motivations.

    Fucking rubbish. Big robots and nice SFX can't hide terrible monster design, awful cliche characters and nonsense acting and casting. Why is Stacey skaters brother Australian in it"??? Why not just you know, cast an Australian?

    @Gambit1977 - Although I actually like the monster design, the rest of the film was comically cheesy.

    And yeh, i can't help but laugh when people with broad Australian accents try and be emotional. Its just too funny.

    It made back over double it's budget. Is that considered a flop? (Not being sarcy)
