    Enough Said 80/100

    Enjoyable middle aged romantic comedy with a good script and performances from Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini.

    Spent most of the film just feeling a bit sad about the fact James Gandolfini won't be in anything else though.

    Halloween movie night at home for -cerberus-!

    Village of the Damned (1960)

    Loved every minute of it. A tad bit too short for my liking though. Saw Carpenter's remake back in the 90's, didn't think much of it...

    8.5/10

    ---

    The Collector

    Tense & gory, just not very memorable...

    5/10

    I'm enjoying myself, albeit in a 'forever alone' kind of way but that doesn't really matter :lol: Up next are The Fall of the House of Usher (1960), Dead Birds, Devil Dog, Trick 'r Treat & Halloween (1978).

    Watch the sequel 'The Collection'. It's just as bad but has an awesome scene at the start.

    I quite like the collector and its sequel, but I don't know why.

    Trick 'r Treat is pretty rubbish.
    If you can, see You're Next, great fun.

    They're shit even as torture porn though because there's not much of it. That scene in the nightclub though is an unbeaten cinematic masterpiece.

    @-cerberus- I actually really liked Dead Birds. Seen it a few times now. Michael Shannon and the guy that played Elliott in ET. In fact, may make the wife watch it with me tonight.

    @BillCityfingers Aye, lovely little indie horror flick! Shat a few bricks when I saw it alone for the first time eight years ago. Pay close attention during the opening sequence; that's the set of Spectre, the secret/ghost town from Tim Burton's of Big Fish ;)

    The Fall of the House of Usher (1960)

    First time seeing this gem, thoroughly enjoyed it. One of the most atmospheric films I've ever seen! The lighting, the sets, the paintings on the walls of the mansion, ... All very impressive!
    The only thing that really bothered me was Mark Damon: not only is his acting terrible but I thought he was terribly miscast. He looks like a bloody figure skater lacking onscreen presence.

    9/10

    Dead Birds

    I've been watching this one nearly every Halloween night since the DVD was released. You can tell the had to work with a limited budget and it's rather slow-paced but I won't hold that against it. Disturbing story, intensely brooding atmosphere, creepy creature design... Highly recommended!

    7,5/10

    Thor: The Dark World

    It was alright.

    ... the best scenes is when Loki and Thor are chatting and/or fighting together.

    The closing scene is super-duper great!

    Why, oh why do they have to use a famous landmark in a capital city (London) to have thee final showdown?

    Boring.

    Anyways, I think it deserves three stars so, in this weird reality of 'out of ten', a 6/10 shall do.

    loki 2. The dark world.


    So, fun, very much. Will never watch again but not because its terrible as its really enjoyable . Hiddlestone the best thing in it again. Never felt the universe was under threat as it was outskirts of London and assholegard which no one cares about.

    Sadly Kat dennings spends the whole film in a thick coat hiding her wonderful assets.

    The after credits scene midway was fucking abysmal and looked like doctor who.

    7/10

    Chasing Ice: 8/10

    Wow: a documentary revealing the extent to which glaciers are retreating. Hate using the word, but this is the perfect use case to describe something as 'sobering'. It was also stunning to watch: there's a sequence showing a massive chunk of ice 'calving' off, and the scale of it is incredible.

    Night of The Living Dead Blu-Ray: 90%

    I've seen probably 100-150 horror films in my time and revisiting this classic with mostly enhanced visuals reaffirms my believe it is the best Zombie movie of all time, and easily into the top 10 horror of all time too.

    A flawed anti-hero, racism and for me the most convincing 'as live' TV reporting ever seen in cinema.

    Of course there are instances of ham-acting but it is 1968.

    Forever a classic never to be beaten.

    Trick 'r Treat

    Trick 'r Treat has become a regular on Halloween night for me. While I've always enjoyed watching it, I think I'll be skipping it next year. It's just too memorable for its own good, in my opinion.

    7,5/10

    Halloween

    Must've seen this one fifty times or so and I still love it! First time watching the blu ray though... Quite impressed with the image quality I must say, but the 5.1 audio track is a mixed bag: ambient sounds and music are well-balanced but the voices, not so much.
    Will watch it again tonight with the commentary track on :)

    9,5/10

    It really is a stunning film. Beautiful and really saddening.

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

    Senna: 10/10

    I'm no fan of the sport, but I have not watching something so thrilling in a long time. Touching, and profoundly moving.

    Thor: The Dark World (3D IMAX) - 7.5/10

    A very enjoyable sequel which continues Thor's story some time after the Avengers left off. This time Asgard is faced with threat which could destroy it. Thor to the rescue then...

    The film is a bit of a darker affair than the bright and cheery original. The baddies are Dark Elves, who's leader is played by Christopher Eccleston. The plot is about something or other that the baddies want and the goodies need to stop from happening. None of the Dark Elves are really that interesting or standout in any shape or form though.

    Luckily this doesn't matter too much as the film is very much the Loki show. The films good when he's not in it but Tom Hiddleston steals every scene his in as the mischievous Loki and the film's much better for it.

    The two main performances and the chemistry between Thor and Loki is superb. Both actors fit the roles perfectly and the script gives them some decent situations for them to be at each others throats.

    The film, although slightly darker in tone is also very funny. Some great one liners and visual gags. I found it a lot funnier than the first one.

    Special mention to the special effects. They are superb throughout. I wasn't expecting spaceships and those give the film a bit of a different feel from the original.

    As per usual, there's the scenes with the credits. There are two with this one. the first about midway through is pretty damn good, although I didn't know what it was for until it clicked later. More good for what it is as opposed to what it does. The final one at the end of the credits isn't that great but still mildly amusing.

    If you like these Marvel films then this is more of the same. No bad thing really.

    Edit: UK product placement abound. A bit odd seeing it but quite nice all the same.

    If it wasn't for Tom Hiddleston as the mischievous Loki, both Thor films would be decidedly average.

    ... the guy who plays Thor looks the part, but isn't 'Thor-like' in his stormy/shouty personality you read upon in his comics.

    I HAD to leave as soon the credits appeared because my car was already twenty minutes pass the two hour mark (for parking) so, could someone briefly tell me what happened in those extra scenes please?

    Ta.

    @CharlieStCloud

    First bit was a clip from Guardians of the Galaxy. The second is back to Thor. He comes back to Jane. They snog. Cut to shot of the beast thing that came through portal into London that looks the the dog from Ghostbusters chasing birds. That's it.

    Oh, thank you!

    ... doesn't sound like I missed much there.

    Forgot to say, I beamed like a loon when we saw Loki take form of Captain America.

    World War Z

    I enjoyed reading the book this is based on a while back and was excited to learn a movie was being made of it, unfortunately this isn't a good film of the book, but it is a decent zombie film. The story follows a familiar pattern for this type of film, there's an outbreak that spreads rapidly and humanity is turned into zombies.

    What this film does better than most is drive home the possible worldwide scenario for this story. It showcases some incredible set pieces on a large scale for a zombie outbreak. In fact this is the film's strongest point, some of those scenes are simply fantastic to watch.

    The pacing of the film is pretty good, it gets going quickly and keeps the pace up throughout, although there's a minor stutter near the end. The story might not be anything that hasn't been seen before, but the telling of it is slick.

    Brad Pitt does a good job as the lead, it's far from his greatest role but he works well as the focus of the film. The book is more a collection of tales from around the world telling the history of the outbreak, the film follows a similar globe trotting pattern, but in a more singular fashion, just following the single lead character.

    Overall this is a fun zombie film, it's sense of scale and high production values sets it up a strong member of a crowded genre, but is well worth a watch.

    7/10

    Upside Down

    Two worlds with separate gravity look down on each other but for various reasons the citizens are kept apart until a pair decide to fall in love, blah, blah.

    It's worth watching just because some of the visuals and scenes with switching gravity are actually really well done. The info dump right at the start and a painfully slow opening 20 minutes make it hard work though.

    4/10

    Iron Man 3 7/10 Surprisingly enjoyable, loved the twist and Ben Kingsley in particular, good stuff,and I'm the exact opposite of a superhero fanboy usually.
