    You didn't watch it, so you can't rate it. :p

    Machete Kills was fantastic.

    After Earth

    Jayden Smith is one dopey looking fucker, and he has none of his Dad's charisma. Story was pure crap as well.

    Shit/10

    The Last Stand. (on UK netflix)

    Arnie as a small town county Sherrif has to stop a Mexican Cartel Boss from crossing the border.

    Pure cliché but it does its job and kept me entertained throughout. Above average gunfights as well.

    7/10

    The World's End. 6.5/10. Weakest of the trilogy, but still had enough to make me giggle quite a bit. Very silly, but well worth a watch.

    As an aside, very disappointed with the Blinkbox streaming experience. After Netflix, that much variation in PQ was surprising. Netflix is virtually flawless over the same connection

    Halloween

    It's been many years since I last watched this and I enjoyed watching it again. It's a classic in the slasher genres and has inspired many imitators and remakes since its release. It tells the story of a young boy who murders his sister and then fifteen years later escapes from the asylum. He then returns to his home town and murders more teens the same age as his sister.

    It does show it's age in many ways, it lacks the gore of modern films (not a bad thing in my opinion) and it does feel a bit cheesey, although that's partly because it has been imitated so many times it lacks the rawness from its original release.

    The film also feels a little clumsy in places, but it does do two things very well. The first is Michael Myers, you never really understand who or what he his and comes across as implacable and very sinister. The other thing is the music, the title tune in particular is very effective and works well with the film.

    It might have aged a bit, but overall it remains an excellent watch and fully deserving of its classic status in film history.

    9/10

    An Adventure in Space and Time - 9/10

    Somewhat sentimental, but brilliant retelling of the origins of Doctor Who and William Hartnell's First.

    This is an absolute must watch, even for non-fans.

    One of the best realised dramas of the year.

    Fuck it - 10/10

    Trance - Philip K. Dick gone wrong(4)/10

    The gangsters didn't work. Only for Dawson's and McEvoy's sheer charisma and ability was this watchable. Some very nice shots from Boyle as always but this one felt flat, undercooked and gimmicky throughout. Disappointing.

    Drunken Master.

    It doesn't matter how many times I watch this film, it never seems to bore me. Lots of excellent fight scenes, humour and kung fu cheesiness.

    The Hunt (2012) - 9/10

    Excellent Danish drama about a teacher in a small village falsely accused of child abuse by his best friend's daughter. It's quite harrowing and difficult to watch in places. Mads Mikkelsen gives a brilliant performance as the teacher unjustly ostracised.

    Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa - 5/10

    I'm a huge Partridge fan but that was dull as dishwater. The reviews completely and utterly baffle me. There were a few amusing moments and very few moments of classic Iannucci writing brilliance, but they were... few. Sure it was good to see the old characters again, but the whole thing paled in comparison to I'm Alan Partridge, with more laughs in a minute of that series than this entire film. The sheer brilliance of Partridge was completely missing, and the 'filmic' nature of.. film.. just doesn't lend itself to Partridge. He should be seen annoying people at 50fps not 24fps.

    The Day

    The Day is a survival horror set ten years after the collapse of civilisation, a small group of survivors are trying to evade tribes of cannibals and survive. It's filmed in a style of many similar films with a washed out colour palette. The story is fairly simple with a couple of minor twists, but nothing too surprising.

    The group are reasonably well played, there's a good dynamic within the group, although how they managed to survive for ten years is a bit of a surprise. It's paced well with keeps going until the climax.

    Overall it's quite entertaining, but doesn't really stand out in any way. If you're after a post apocalyptic film then there are better choices out there and worse ones too.

    6/10

    Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa 5/10

    It's just not funny enough. Hardly laughed at all. There's just something ever so off about the character that made some of the comedy not ring true. I think the character has been off since his Mid-Morning Matters comeback, to be honest.

    Inside Lewynn Davis 7/10

    This is the new Coen brothers film set in the folk music scene of the early 60's. It's played very straightforward. Everything is about it is decent but nothing more than that.

    Snitch - 8/10

    Very solid 'based on a true story' flick about a guy who goes up against a mexican drug cartel to save his son.

    It leaves u to make ur own mind up about the new drug laws in the US and I quite like the big guy. (Can't remember the name. The Rock?)

    I just spent two hours watching children running around a cinema and listening to their incessant prattling and play. I may have occasionally noticed Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddlestone prancing around as well. Hard to tell.

    Not sure what to make of Thor 2 really, it was quite entertaining and a good spectacle. Good turns from most of the actors. I always like seeing Idris Elba being ace. So, pretty good but not exceptional, kind of preferred the first one I think.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    V/H/S (2012) 3/10

    Utter shit. Really tough on the eyes, as the footage is ‘found raw VHS quality’ and really over done.

    When a group of misfits is hired by an unknown third party to burglarize a desolate house and acquire a rare VHS tape, they discover more found footage than they bargained for.


    Issue’s I had with the film include:

    Before entering the house, these guy’s carry a camera the whole time to film themselves? Is that normal?

    They enter a house to obtain a VHS tape. They discover a pile of VHS tapes. Instead of taking the tapes out of the house and watching back at their own place, they decided to stay in the house to watch the tapes in the same room as the owner, who appears dead while sitting in a chair? - I wouldn’t want to be in that house longer than necessary.

    Seeing as the film is called VHS, and the quality of the footage is VHS, for some weird reason, one of the tapes contains footage of the type associated with Computers/Web-cams? For some weird reason, someone has copied to VHS web-cam footage, although the makers of VHS failed to give that footage the VHS look?

    As for story, there really isn’t any, other than a bunch of guys entering a house to watch VHS tapes. This simply acts as a hub to view VHS tapes, which are supposed to look badly filmed, as they are filmed by amateurs.

    3/10 as some of the gore effects look ok. They got the colour of blood correct. And there's tits!

    Aftershock - 8/10

    Silly fun but actually quite horrific in places. The first 30 minutes is fun with three guys going round clubs and picking up girls. Then the earthquake hits and things take a much darker tone though there's still a lot of humour in between the brutal deaths, dead children, and raping. The end though entirely predictable still made me laugh .

    I did enjoy the first story with the vampire. The rest were pretty shit.

    V/H/S 2 is actually a lot better.

    Hunger Games: Catching Fire

    A hard one to rate, having read the books and admittely was disappointed with the second one as not a lot really happened I went into the cinema knowing what to expect and enjoyed it. However the wife has not read the books, thought it was terrible.

    7.5/10

    Gravity

    Pretty good. Glad I went to the trouble of seeing it in 3D at the IMAX as it clearly massively enhanced the experience, although I do think it would stand up as a decent thriller in itself.

    The way it's shot is brilliant and I love the way there is no up or down for pretty much the whole film. Very clever.

    The one thing I could have done without was the stuff about her dead kid. Just such an incredibly obvious and unnecessary plot device that felt utterly crowbarred in, and didn't make me care any more about what was happening whatsoever.

    But otherwise really good fun and I felt quite battered by the end, in a good way.

    8/10

    I would have liked it to have ended 5-10 minutes earlier. The last few minutes reeked of being tacked on after focus group testing.

    Engaging enough but didn't really go anywhere. On the other hand Amanda Seyfried was actually kind of hot, which was surprising, because I've never really got the appeal with her.

    Gone Baby Gone

    Interesting film, well acted and makes you question what's truly 'right'.

    I was hoping it would end with her being trapped in the pod underwater, setting up the sequel to follow directly on.
