    Black Hawk Down - 88%

    Great film, I don't think many of people that saw it when it first came out were that bothered about it, but on a recent watch, really enjoyed it. Plus theres alot of actors that you point at and say "that guys from....."
    Pretty much action all the way through, with instense struggle.
    The film may have been a bit one-sided in its view, it was abit too much 'MURICA!!! But either way, a good film.

    Troll Hunter - 6/10

    Found this on netflix the other night & gave it a watch. Actually rather enjoyable in a Blair Witch type style. The CGI for the trolls was a bit ropey in places, and they showed them much too early in my view but was all good fun.

    Acting was a bit of a mixed bag but the best bit of the film was probably the scenery tbh, Norway is pretty stunning in places.

    Gravity - 9/10

    First of all, I can't emphasise enough that this has to be seen on IMAX in 3D. It's nothing short of breathtaking. I've seen a few films in 3D (including Avatar) and none of them have remotely convinced me of its worth as something that adds to the film-watching experience. But, Gravity has done it. It's the film the industry has been waiting for, IMHO.

    The only thing I would say as a cautionary note is that it should maybe be missed if you have bad vertigo (although only bad, bad vertigo). I'm not a fan of heights myself, and there were definitely a couple of moments that gave me that unpleasant tingly feeling in the hands.

    It's an incredibly visceral, terrifying experience. It's not a horror film per se, but it brings out a similar reaction in the viewer. You'll be tense and feel sick with dread for large portions of the film (this is a good thing, by the way).

    The visuals are some of the best I've seen in a film. It's constantly incredible to look at. The detail is astonishing, it's consistently great work from Cuaron and the rest of the team behind this.

    Bullock is mainly impressive despite a couple of Shia La Bouef-esque "NONONONONONONONO" moments. I fully expect her to be nominated for all the big awards, and probably win some too. Clooney is Clooney (I like him, so it wasn't a problem).

    The first reason I've taken a point off is that there are a couple of cheesy lines which aren't in keeping with the rest of the film, particularly in the final third or so. The other reason is that the characterisation is a little bit weak and actually kinda superfluous, particularly with Bullock's character. Her being a loner with a dead daughter felt a bit clichéd to an extent. Also: Once Clooney was out the film it occasionally did that annoying thing in films where people voice thoughts they would otherwise keep in their head. I understand why they did it, but I don't really need to hear Bullock say "I hate space". It didn't feel right.

    Bonus point for there being no aliens.

    I enjoyed it for the pretty, but the musings on life and such felt a bit trite. I much preferred Sunshine's spin on that sort of stuff (well, at least the first half of Sunshine).

    Great film - the acting is fantastic and the story moves along at quite a pace. There's a turning point that a lot of people (including myself) will see coming but it doesn't bring down the film nor dampen its' impact. Quite a little history lesson, too!

    8/10
    Randomly watched this a few days ago also.

    Agree with you - it is a great film though I, personally, didn't see it all coming together as it did. Fantastic cinematography - felt like I'd been travelling at the end, in all kinds of ways.

    Highly recommend.

    @TheSaint Of course it's fake, it's made by the same guys who directed a few of the Paranormal Activity movies...

    Yup, Gravity is amazing. I was completely blown away by it. One of the best films I've seen at the cinema all year.

    Dredd

    I enjoyed watching this film again, I was a big fan of the comics as a youngster and this a decent adaptation. As well as that it is a decent action film. It's set in the future where most of America is an irradiated wasteland, Mega City One is a vast city housing most of the remaining population. The city is rife with crime, things are so bad that the judges are empowered as judge, jury and executioners as needed. A new drug called slow-mo (which also provides a nice reason for some of the special effects) has hit the streets and as part of this three pushers are murdered. Judge Dredd and a rookie called Anderson investigate the murders and find themselves trapped inside the block. They then have to battle their way out.

    The set up is very similar to The Raid (another excellent action film) and while the story isn't particularly unique it is sufficient to keep things interesting through the film.

    For me the real problem was the setting, it didn't really fill the fantasy created in the comics. It has glimpses of it, but for the most part is little different from a modern environment. This in part reflects the low budget for the film.

    However it's strengths far outweigh that minor complaint. The main plus for me was Dredd himself, Karl Urban does portray the character I imagined while reading the comics. The other characters are also well played, Anderson contrasts well with Dredd as the rookie judge being assessed.

    This is a fun film, worth watching even if you don't know the comics and a fair adaptation if you have.

    8/10

    Gravity was the first film I believe that truly warrants watching in 3D.

    Batman - The Dark Knight Returns Parts 1 and 2 (animated)

    Really enjoyed this. One of the better animated super tales. A faithful adaption in many ways of Millers Graphic Novel but with some extra Supes thrown in.

    Ronin

    It's been a while since I last watched this and it was just as good as I remembered it. This is a top notch action thriller. A team of freelancers with different talents is put together and tasked with retrieving a case. As can be expected from a thriller things go pear shaped quite quickly.

    The film does everything right, De Niro and Jean Reno work well together and pretty much steal the show, but everyone else does a good job in support. The weak link is Sean Bean, but he does provide some light relief.

    The story unfolds at a good pace with some interesting twists and turns along the way. The action may be occasional and brief, but as with the rest of the film is well done. It also features one of the classic car chases in film through the streets of Paris.

    It's also nice to see something like this not on the streets of a US city, it changes the dynamics quite a bit. The streets are narrow making for tighter action, the blend of nationalities also plays into the story.

    This ranks as one of my favourite action thrillers and stills stands out in its genre.

    9/10

    The Wolverine Extended.
    Missed it at the cinema on the back of origins being dire BUT this was great actually. Violence turned up a bit and an alright yarn. Pleasantly surprised.

    I really enjoyed Gravity but echo the negative points highlighted by Tom. it just detracts that little bit from an otherwise excellent and engaging film. Not a massive negative, just took away a bit.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    I think the main reason this movie was underated is a horrible original with Stalone. The movie itself is better than all of those Thor/Xmen/Transformers and so on
    Underrated? Everyone on here has jizzed all over it since it came out.

    I personally didn't see what the fuss was all about. But then I haven't read the comics.

    a) the movie was under-rated outside of EG, obviously.
    b) "thing I had absolutely nothing invested in doesn't resonate with me" shocker ;)

    Well, there are plenty of movies I've liked where I haven't read the source material. With this, he seemed to spend most of the movie not shooting people, and the bits where he was shooting people were nowhere near as exciting as, say, The Raid.

    It wasn't bad or anything, but I really don't understand all of the 9-10/10 scores it's been getting from people on here.

    But eh, whatever. People like what they like. Good for them! :-)
