    Robocop (2014) 2/10

    SHIT!!!!

    Sorry I tried to like it.

    For me Robocop 1987 is an action classic nasty and brutal, wrapped in black humour and satire. So maybe I'm coming from a biased viewpoint.


    The new one lacks soul, sure the production design is more modern and shiny, but putting him on a bike just made me think of Street Hawk..........cue the Tangerine Dream theme tune.

    Whereas 87 robocop looked mean and heavy the new one is sleek and moves fast. Which just looks totally wrong. In the 87 Robocop you actually felt Alex Murphy was now a machine, the coldness the slow heavy exaggerated slow walking gait the robotic voice etc.

    In this new one it feels like he's just man in a bullet proof suit, buzzing round on a bike.

    Even the action is muted down to PG-13 via the inclusion of robot vs robot shooting so no blood just bangs.

    Everything in this is wrong, remember how the gang sadisticly and slowly blew Weller apart with shotguns and guns in the 87 version, in this its a quick car bomb. All the small details are just quickly glossed over.

    There is not a single thing this does better apart from the better ED209 effects. Even Keaton, Jackson and Oldman are phoning it in.

    Robocop fans will watch it but keep in mind its shit. I bet Verhoeven is pissed.

    WHy do action films now have to be totally non violent?

    Exactly what I thought when I watched the trailer.

    Star Trek VI The Undiscovered Country.

    This is how a Trek movie should be made, an almost perfect film. The right level of energy and action, with it's many humorous moments. The performances are spot on, Christopher Plummer was superb as the Shakespeare loving General Chang. Iman was good also, as well as David Warner as Chancellor in a small role. Although he was in the lead role, William Shatner never tries to dominate the film and gives the film a real good balance with a fine performance alongside his real best friend as WoK showed, not what the last two Star Treks have been digging at (I might be wrong here).

    Kirk: Where's that damn torpedo?
    McCoy: It's ready Jim, lock and load!
    beep beep beep...

    Fabulous stuff. 10/10.

    Sure the old Trek films varied in quality but I really fucking despise the new ones with a passion. They are just crapping all over the Trek legacy

    Agree with everthing you have said. I love the first one, hasn't aged brilliantly but it was the 80's man...you had to be there ;)

    As for action. Rambo (IV) was at least full on 80's style violent, like it or lothe it.

    My last viewing was World War Z totally enjoyed it, I know that is not cool to say, but I have not read any of the books, nor do I know anything of the lore. Me and the woman, curry on laps, kids in bed, movies on demand, job done :)

    Star Trek Into Darkness - 75%

    Just watched it. Thought it was alright to be honest. The final action piece went on a bit too long, but overall I quite enjoyed it.

    2 Guns - 7/10

    Formulaic but it was a fucking blast. Great chemistry between Denzel and Marky Mark, very reminiscent of Lethal Weapon.

    Gravity (2D :p) - 3/10

    I'm guessing the 3D adds the missing 'depth', as this turned into an average rollercoaster ride pretty damn quickly. Even thought at points it'd turn into something more metaphorical......but no.

    Might do lots for the medium of 3D, and immersion, and Bullock's self esteem via the numerous changing scenes, but I was expecting something far greater than the empty black void presented before me, given the glowing praise abound.

    Oscar talk ? Pfffff. Technically perhaps, but certainly nothing else.

    The Family - 3/10

    Oh dear. Besson gets worse by the film. Cue DeNiro as former Mob man in WPP, settling into the family's new French locale. Cue clichéd cultural differences, an under utilised cast, and TLJ looking more despondent than ever before.

    The less said about the school-age, teacher seducing (and up-against-door fucking) daughter, who turns to killing henchmen, before running and screaming like all damsels in a satin virgin-white dress during a chase sequence.......christ. A jumbled mess.

    The Art of Getting By - 5/10

    Standard coming-of-age, teenage love, angst and smart arsery blah, blah, blah....

    Functional, but with a delightful soundtrack that had me rummaging for albums I haven't heard in years.

    The Internship

    Did not laugh one. single. time. As a comedy (ok I know it was *really* meant to be a promo vehicle for Google but still) it failed miserably.

    And the constant pimping of Google products and the underlying message that all jobs are shit except for them made me sick.

    0/10

    Luckily got it as a free rental offer. Read the reviews on Imdb and most were pretty much in line with what I experienced tonight, although a mate told me it was not too bad. Will tell him to get his humour sensors fixed.

    As a documentary about what life is like at Google it's probably not too bad, as I see the same cut and paste smug hipster twats outside their office (and right next to my apartment block) kifflom-ing each other IRL on a daily basis.

    I dunno, I have a friend who works at the Sydney google office, and it's been anything but fun for him. Even with all the cool stuff.

    And if he's any indication, many google employees find that movie enormously embarrassing.

    @sirtacos

    Not seen The Cove so can't compare (though I'll keep an eye out for it). But given blackfish had videos of people being attacked and dying, I suspect it's a little more gruesome. Dunno. Blackfish will be on t'iplayer for a few days yet - go watch it and let me know!

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    Moneyball - 7.5/10. Do like Brad Pitt as an actor, and thought this was a  decent watch, it could have been exceptionally dull given the subject matter.

    The Wolverine 3/10

    Does nothing to develop the character. Could have been anyone running around. Super predictable too. Has all the cliches, including an over stylised Japan.

    Yeah I liked this as well, the fights were fantastic and the way they shot them was brilliant, they really flowed rather than being edited together afterwards. Proper old school Hong Kong martial arts movie but with decent production.

    The Hunt

    Havn't been so gripped by a film in a long time. Hugely impressive. Its a hard watch though, the film is a about a nursey worker , ex teacher who is wrongly accused of child abuse - so its pretty heavy in its themes. Not only does it show the destruction of a man life, but the film also deals with the other side of the coin in such a way, you can see why the community turns on the main character. The last scenes i thought were extraordinary, the traits of several characters were wonderfully captured in just mere seconds of footage.

    Its wonderfully shot, and the script is tip top, every line i hung on.

    Highley recommended 10/10
