    Completely agree on The Hunt, great film and glad it was recommended before here as I likely never would've bothered with it even though noticing it on Netflix.

    Meanwhile...

    The Great Gatsby

    While I found it a bit light on story, VERY pretty despite the odd overdose of CGI, and the at times out of place soundtrack worked quite well for me. Definitely a Bluray showcase disc and quite entertaining (but not quite Oscar material for me).

    7.5/10

    The Iceman 6/10

    Based on. The true story of mafia hitman. Good and with some decent performances. Plus it has Schwimmer throwing his weight about as a hood in a tracksuit and dodgy tache. Recommend it if you like gangster films.

    Gravity: Pretty and tense but a bit meh/10
    I'm a bit confused by all the 5 star reviews from the press. It's very pretty and Bullock and Clooney are fine and it's tense at all the right points but the film left me cold.

    Silly in parts as well. I'd give it a perfectly good 7/10.

    Kingdom of Heaven (Directors Cut) - 85%

    I saw the 'theatrical' version of the film a long time ago. I couldn't remember most of what happened, however I recall being disappointed.
    I've been reading alot about the Crusades recently, and decided to give it another go. I read lots of reviews stating the the Directors Cut is a much better version, containing a massive 45mins extra footage taking the film time into over 3 hours. And wow, what a difference it made, there was much more character building and alot less confusion, the plot made alot more sense and I really enjoyed it. The plot, historically, was relatively accurate and I loved the more technical plot. There are a few things that I didn't particularly like. Unfortunately, Orlando Bloom is just ok in the film. Even though he did an alright job with the acting, he just wasnt very lovable as the main protagonist. There are some great performances though, Edward Norton as King Baldwin IV was engaging. If you thought the first film was ok and fancied a revisit I'd really recommend the directors cut, it really should have been the one shown at the cinema.

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

    The World End - 70%

    I was looking forward to this film for such a long time, and was actually quite confused by much of the story. It starts off light hearted and theres average comedy included, however it didnt provide many laugh out loud moments. The fight scenes were great, you can certainly see the director has included some choreography from Scott Pilgrim VS The World included and theres some very fancy camera work. Its in the final quarter that this film really falls down. A sort of complex set of arguments, that seemed unrelated to all of the previous storyline, and a slightly odd greater story that I think may have gone over my head a little. Then the ending just seems out of this world by comparison to the rest of the movie. It is probably what you'd expect from the guys who did Shaun and Hot Fuzz, however it just simply doesnt deliver, like the previous films did. A very odd one.

    Man of Tai Chi

    Strange stuff.. a predominantly Chinese film, directed by and featuring Keanu Reeves (!, as the bad guy), about Tai Chi and its use in an underground to-the-death fight club. Also has a cameo from Iko Uwais (the main guy in The Raid) and contains some good looking fights. I really didn't know what to expect but I enjoyed it.

    (7/10?)

    Aftershock - 5/10 at a push

    Watchable kind of, didn't really like any of the characters at all, no empathy, couldn't have cared less if they died, also stupid twist in it towards the end.

    When The Wind Blows - 9/10

    This is probably the bleakest film I have ever seen. The attitudes of the characters is gut-wrenching - "Let's sit in the garden for a bit, Dear." It was around 80 minutes long, but it felt much, much longer. It's a brilliant film but I don't think I will want to watch it again very soon.

    The Watch. The idea to 'adult' it up with swears sucked all joy and wit out of the film. It's basically a terrible Ghost Busters. 30 (Ayoade is quite good in it and it made me laugh three times). Also: I have no idea how Vince Vaughn gets work. The man is a charisma vacuum.

    Ruby Sparks. Quite a good antidote to all those films like Garden State where a lonely man meets a kooky girl who changes his life. Actually gets rather dark. If the ending wasn't absolute shit I'd give it a good 90 (it helps that Paul Dano is in it. He is an incredible actor who could bring gravitas to anything). Unfortunetely it should have ended 2 minutes earlier. 80. Really recommend it, though. It seems like it was overlooked on release and it's beautifully made.

    Hope Springs - 6/10

    Settled, rundown married couple seek guidance to pep things up from a small town counsellor .Meh. Hoped for more, but Carrel's subdued as ever, and TLJ sleepwalks yet again, leaving Streep as the standout. Kills an afternoon, but barely sparkles.

    Adore - 7/10

    Australian drama, with two lifelong friends living blissfully on the coast. Except one begins an affair with the other's son, only to be replicated in return, sparking massive changes.

    Funnier viewed as a confidence battle between Robin Wright and Naomi Watts. Watts is lovely, but the honours go to Wright for being proud to flaunt, forgoing the 'flattering' shots (favoured ? :p) by the former. Typically soapish drama, but with the kinky direction, it's considerably darker in tone. Weird but engaging.

    Prince Avalanche - 3/10

    Ehh.....? "Paul Rudd's salute to Texas road maintenance workers" is the closest description I can think of, that tries far, far too hard to be arty/indie, almost forced past the point somewhat. Follows two workers as they repair a forest road after a huge fire in '88, with 'quirky' dialogue, 'colourful' encounters with strangers, and a helluva lot of 'scenic' pan shots with the empty instrumental of some 'cool' band who scored the film.

    Bar one standout performance from 'Moses', and scarce gags, it's a fairly difficult watch.

    McCanik - 7/10

    SEE WHAT WE DID ?! Don't let the poor title disuade you, as this bleak tale of David Morse playing his favourite, "broken down cop" is pretty decent. Enough twists and reveals as you work through the plot, and Morse revels in a safe role, with decent support from a few faces.

    Hadn't seen it in a long time. I doubt a better heist film exists. The silent final thirty minutes is a masterpiece of film.

    Catching Fire: 95/100

    Enjoyed it quite a bit, made some sense out of few niggles I had with first one. Docked 5 points for not explaining one or two things that only book readers would notice leaving me having to answer a few questions for girlfriend who hasn't read books but has seen first film a few times.

    I saw this when I was about 6, thinking it was going to be similar to The Snowman.

    Is this the 80s animated film with a sweet art design?

    /googles

    That's the one. Yeah, bleak as hell but I love the film. Its a very British film; I can't ever imagine it being made anywhere else. Only a British film could ever approach what the film is talking about in such a straightfoward manner.

    Yeah, I read the book when I was quite young and, even though I didnt really understand about radiation poisoning, you just *know* they are in trouble.

    I only watched the movie a few years ago, possibly when they did the slightly crappy Snowman 2: The Snow Dog and it is such a weird experience. Typical britishness in the face of utter horror.

    On a side note, I love Raymond Briggs. Fungus the Bogeyman and Gentlemen Jim should be required reading.

    Thinking it might be like The Snowman is a fairly epic mistake. For something in that realm you should watch Grave of the Fireflies.

    Well, it's also by Raymond Briggs and has an identical visual style because of it, so it's a reasonable error for a six year old really.

    The Brothers Bloom - 3.5/10

    Hugely disappointing film from the director of Brick and Looper.

    Even though it's got a great cast, I didn't find the characters or plot that interesting.

    Superman 4 - The Quest for Peace - 1/10

    I had forgotten how truly awful this film is. What happened to the budget? Had the sequels flopped that badly that nobody was interested? I suspect it was may have been more to do with nobody being interested in a story about Superman riding the world of nuclear weapons.

    The opening titles sequence looks cheap and it just get's worse from there on in. Even John Williams seems to have lost interest and farted out the score.

    The plot is about Superman riding the world of nukes and Lex creating Nuclear Man to destroy Superman. There's one scene where Superman gets all the nukes in a net in space and flings them all into the sun.

    Okay, it's a Superman film and therefore you have to have some suspension of disbelief. However, where on Earth (or anywhere else for that matter) did he manage to get a net big enough to fit in all the nukes?

    The editing is also terrible. There's one scene where Supes runs and jumps into the air. You can see Reeve on the way down from his jump before it cuts to the scene of Supes flying in the air.

    Is there anything good in this? Not much. Christoper Reeve's performance is brilliant as always. There's also a scene in which Lois and some blonde bimbo double date Clark and Supes. That is a very well put together and funny scene. The rest of the film is garbage.

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

    Jagten (The Hunt)

    Impressive though a bit far-fetched in places.

    8/10

    Lord of the Flies

    Absolutely fascinating and full of symbolism. Also, this would make a great RPG game!

    8/10
