    The Colour of Money, 1986 pool sharking sequel to The Hustler with Paul Newman and Tom Cruise. 8/10.

    Stylistically very 'of its moment' with the grundge and grime and muted pallete of the 70s still not completely covered up by 80s gloss. A slightly garbled plot as well, one where the twists are surprising because you've lost track of what's really happening in the first place. But there's no getting away from the three central performances and especially Newman's study in authenticity and defiance. Yes the Hustler is a better film but this one is perhaps more accessible because Tom Cruise is now so familiar to us. And look, he can actually act, even if his character is basically 'Tom Cruise turned up to 11, with all the aspie red flags that comes with'.

    Forest Whitaker as well, fuck me that's up there with Christopher Walken in True Romance for impact. Newman's roaring simian response is one of the most intense and honest scenes I've seen, seems that the 80s could do candour as well as anybody.

    I did expect more from Mary Elisabeth Masterantonio's knockers, and less from her hips.

    Another excellent Scorsese film.

    Gravity (3d IMAX) - 8/10

    Second viewing. I've not done this for a long time now but this is one of those films that needs to be experienced on a huge screen one more time. Doubt it'll have anywhere near the same impact watching at home. However, I'd love to see this with a director's commentary and a decent "making of" documentary.

    The forced plot grates a bit more as does Bullock but it's not that bad. However, there's one scene that made me LOL after watching...THIS

    Edit: Needs sound.

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

    Bad Boys

    Didn't realise it was Michael Bay's first ever film. All gone a bit downhill since then. It's an enjoyable enough fast cars and shit blowing up sort of film, a few great quotable lines, and Tea Leoni. Nothing of particularly great artistic merit but good fun nonetheless.

    78/100

    Starbuck or the French-canadian Delivery Man. 8/10

    Funny, feel-good and no Vince Vaughn. What's not to like? The emo kid doesn't have the face to be a proper emo though.

    Every girl I ever kissed I was thinking of a pro footballer.

    The Color of Money is about 3/10 when compared to the almost-as-good-as-The-Hustler, completely-different-to-the-movie novel.

    Jack Ryan - 70%
    Keira Knightley's funny mouth distracts, as do Chris Pine's numerous blemishes and moles, but once I got over that, I found it pretty enjoyable.
    It's not particularly action packed mind, which was actually OK, as Branagh seems to have lost the ability to direct good action scenes between Thor and this.
    But all of the high tech spy shit is cool, and the bad guy's dastardly plans led to an interesting overall plot.
    It's always nice to see Costner doing good work too.
    Worth a watch then, just don't go expecting loads of shootouts and fisticuffs, because there's fuck all.

    Prisoners

    Bloody hell this was harrowing. Thoroughly enjoyed it though, edge of my seat by the end. Superb performances from the two leads. Reminded me of Seven. Knock off a point if you don't have kids ;)

    9/10

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    Wolf on Wall Street, 7/10. Really enjoyed it, Leo was awesome as always. Some of the other cast was a bit hit and miss though. Shocked it was on for so long, felt shorter.

    Her, 8/10. Phoenix is amazing the way he can carry scenes all by himself, and just the whole film was a visual joy to watch. Arcade Fire did a good job on the soundtrack too. Scary vision of the future though ;)

    Damn that sorcerer! Twenty gold pieces and Im wankered on Rohypnol.

    Meet the millers.

    Funny, Jennifer looks in good shape for her age. Gets a little stereotypical later on but doesn't stop it from being funny. Once scene had me crying from laughing too much.

    Berbarian Sound Studio

    Perhaps was expecting too much.

    Wonderful atmosphere and an audio and visual treat, but.... I don't know... I'd have liked more of a story and something of a tangible ending. Just as the palpable, sinister ambiance started to build the credits rolled. Not every pic needs to spell out everything, but I found it unsatisfying.

    Almost feels like they had the idea of the setting and built a half story around it, to justify the style.

    Every chance I was a bit too tired to appreciate it though, and that I missed something.

    6/10

    He said if you don't have kids. Which sort of makes sense; in a film about a child being abducted and all.

    Because all us people without kids are inhuman fucktards who just laugh all the way through a film like that. Well, I know I do at least...

    Insidious Chapter 2

    I enjoyed the first film and the second is a decent sequel, it's far from the best horror film out there, but it is an entertaining watch. The story continues from the first film, but the family have moved into a new house, unfortunately strange occurrences and visitations continue to haunt them. Even more troubling is the fact that the father may not have returned from the other world, but something more sinister has taken his place.

    As I said I enjoyed this sequel, it continues the story in an interesting and entertaining fashion. The production values are high and everyone does a good job with their roles.

    The main flaw with the film is that it takes the ghost train approach of using sudden movements and loud noises to scare the audience. While it does this reasonably effectively I personally prefer a more considered approach of creepiness and tension. The shame here is that the film does go someway to building a sinister atmosphere, but then shatters it with a sudden bump.

    Still the film is what it is and that is a well made shock horror that is a fun watch, although if you didn't enjoy the first film then you're unlikely to enjoy this one.

    7/10

    If you mean "We're the the Millers" , and Jennifer's family name is Aniston, you totally misled me.

    Prometheus

    Either the shitstorm surrounding this flick was trolling, overanalysis or not living up to unrealistic, gargantuan expectations because I thorougly enjoyed it.
    Nothing revolutionary for sure but a solid flick nonetheless: entertaining, tense, well made and well acted; it ticked all the boxes as far as I'm concerned. I don't see what all the loose ends or plot holes everyone was on about are supposed to be either, extreme nitpicking notwithstanding.

    This film fits its purpose as an Alien prequel adequately as well IMO (though one could obviously debate whether Alien needed a prequel)
    Granted, there's still a bit of a gap between Prometheus' ending and Alien's beginning but nothing a tiny bit of suspension of disbelief can't solve. It's not exactly a glaring contradiction.

    It may have had something to do with the probability that any of the crew could have been outsmarted by the teenagers in AvP2. Among a litany of other travesties.

    Looked and sounded nice though.

    Ghostbusters 2

    Yes I'm on a bit of a film binge :) One from the golden 80's era still worth the watch although it doesn't have a patch on the original. The story meanders at times, the looming evil doesn't seem as menacing as it should and both the romance and the cheesy ending are occasionally cringeworthy.
    But hey, it's Ghostbusters.

    6.5/10

    The Act Of Killing.

    Giving it a score is demeaning. Quite frankly, it's an incredible film. Don't want to say too much. Go into it blind, but find the time to watch it

    Mitt - 5/10

    A documentary-maker follows Mitt Romney's two Presidential runs for Netflix, and while gaining phenomenal access also leaves quite a bit to be desired.

    This is covering six years and yet it's only 90 minutes long, and as a result significant chunks of time are missed out. We see clips of Romney's family saying they couldn't do another run after he lost the Republican nomination to McCain, but all of a sudden it's a few years later and we're going again? I struggle to believe there wasn't a goldmine of footage to be had from those discussions. There's also an acknowledgement, but no discussion of, the "47%" leaked speech. The incredible access (the camera is rolling on election night as they're writing his concession speech, for example) may well explain this though.

    Watching it it's hard not to think that Romney is a decent guy, even if I disagree with him politically (unlike Paul Ryan IMHO who makes a brief appearance near the end and comes across as, well, an insincere twat). It's difficult not to empathise with him to some degree and his obvious complex about living up to his dad's incredibly high standards.

    If you're into US politics it's probably worth 90 minutes of your time, but don't expect to come away with any great insights apart from "Oh, maybe some right-wingers aren't monsters after all".
