    Hobbit 2 - 8/10

    Better than the first. Smaug is excellent. The ending less so. In fact, it was quite irritating.

    Gravity - Was expecting typical space bollocks, this wasn't. Amazing cinematography, great performances.

    9/10.

    Annual Michael Clayton watch. Love it.

    There are some books, films and albums that you know are good, but not classic or superb. But you love them anyway. This is one such film. Love the end scenes, Tom Wilkinson, etc.

    Is there anything Tom Wilkinson is in where he isn't good?

    Desolation of Smaug.

    Everything works - the original material, the bits taken from Tolkien's other writing and Jackson's own sense of spectacle.

    Smaug is superbly realised, but it's the performances by Freeman, Armitage and yes, even Lily, that make this shine.

    Prisoners 7/10

    Comes very close to being a Silence of the Lambs/Zodiac contender but fall short due to being too heavy-handed, too long and one cliche too many. Still worth a watch for sure and I'm sure there will be plenty of people who will love it.

    Last Stand - 2/10

    I don't know why I'm watching this. I've lost at least 20 IQ points wasting my time with this.

    Yeah I couldn't believe how much I didn't like it. Was so boring. I ended up leaving it on in the background and playing Persona 4 on my vita instead. Was a much better way to spend an hour and a half :D

    Hobbit 2: The Bloatening

    Far too long, too many unnecessary scenes, some semi-decent action sequences and scenery but ultimately more style than substance.

    Martin Freeman was ok again in a bumbling sort of way, my issue with the drawves again being that they are nothing more than a bit of unmemorable comic relief was borne out. Oh, and an unnecessary love story hacked on for seemingly no other purpose than to feature a female character in the film to appease the PC gang.

    Better than the first one, but, seriously, 9hrs worth of film this trilogy is going to be, roughly. It's already stretched, like butter scraped over too much bread, to paraphase Bilbo himself.

    It got really odd towards the end with Knoxville jumping off street lamps and wearing silly hats.

    Edit* Oh, and I just watched Fargo, which is obviously great. 9/10 for that.

    It's not for anything PC. It's for the viewing demographics.

    I really enjoyed the new Hobbit, but that love story was so tacked on it was absurd. It was painful to watch... which was a shame as I was really into it otherwise.

    Now You See Me

    This is a fun thriller. Four magicians team up to create a spectacular magic show, the highlights of which are some original heists. As they do so they play a cat and mouse game with the authorities and with an ex-magician who is dedicated to exposing magicians and their scams.

    As thrillers go it's not a very deep one, but it does have a few interesting twists along the way. What does stand out are the magic shows, they are a fantastic spectacle and the four magicians all contribute something different to the show. There's sleight of hand, mesmerism, escapology and illusions and the actors all do a decent job with their roles.

    I can see that some people might not be a fan of the ending,personally I liked it, it's nice to think that there's a bit of mystery to it. All in all it's a flashy and entertaining watch.

    7/10

    World War Z

    Really enjoyed this, as did my 13 year old son who said - "This is really gripping!"

    Watched the extended version via PS3 - don't know what was added, etc from the cinema release, and I haven't read the book so can't comment on what/wasn't missing or "right" from the book.

    A solid 75% - it was tense, but may be 1 too many close escapes from our main man?! Glad I made the effort.

    3/10. Pretty much meandering aimless confused garbage.

    Think of how stupid the average person is, and realise half of them are stupider than that

    I loved Prisoners. Some great performances from all the main players and it gripped all the way through. 9/10

    Edge of Tomorrow 7/10

    Based on the book All you Need is Kill.

    Hmmmmmm

    Ok so straight away the name of the film has been changed from the rather harsh "All You Need is Kill" to make it seem more PG-13 friendly.

    Good job the name of has been changed in my opinion as although the basic premise is there, this is only a feint outline of the book. Just think comparison of World War Z the film and the book, same premise very different execution.

    The time loop skill enhancement remains but thats where the similarities end, they play this more on a more grand scale interaction time loop, rather than just the final battle time loop like in the book.

    For me the biggest let down is the tech. In the book the mech suits completely incase the soldier and they wield big bombastic weaponry, and power swords which is still insufficient to fight the brutal Mimics.

    In this its more of an exoskeleton (think a bulkier version of Elysium).

    Just feels like such a wasted opportunity, to see some amazing futuristic military tech.

    Ultimately this is a film neutered by the inability to be brave and stick to the book, so instead of a brutal balls to the wall sci-fi war film (like the book), we get a flimsy disjointed action sci-fi epic.

    Worth a watch but not what it should have been. Plus the casting of Emily Blunt as Rita Vrataski the "Full metal bitch" is just off, shes far too pretty and slight in my opinion to be believable.

    Seven Psychopaths: 7.5/100

    I loved In Bruges so this was a no brainer. I didn't love it as much as In Bruges, but I still loved it. Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken were great in it, and Tom Waits was a nice bonus.

    Blue Jasmine 9/10

    Loved this. Blanchett was phenomenal and will surely be given a nomination come Oscar time. High society girl has her life come crashing down and has to move on with her life. Doesn't sound like much but the dialogue and characters are very well done and nicely realised. Although I've noticed that Woody has a thing for descriptive dialogue, where one character will walk on scene and announce, "Yes, so you asked me earlier about my time in X" or whatever, then go on to explain it. It's a jarring way of moving the conversation on and filling the audience in on necessary back story and it brought me out a few times.
