    Lockout - 79/100

    Thoroughly enjoyed this. Pretty typical sci-fi action thriller/prison riot movie but Pearce's character was awesome. Some ropey CGI early on but otherwise nothing much I could really complain about. Would love to see a sequel. Would definitely be interested in a game with the lead character's personality.

    Skyfall

    And another. Contemporary Bond done by the numbers as far as I'm concerned. Nothing to write home about, nothing to complain about.

    While nowhere near the excellence of Casino Royale, Skyfall certainly doesn't fail to entertain.
    Bardem delivered his best villain role since No Country for Old Men however as far as I'm concerned; definitely the highlight of the film. On the downside, the whole "Bond is getting old" thing - esp. the juxtaposition with Q - and Dench's overexposure began to grate rather quickly for me.

    7/10

    Only God Forgives

    This is one of those arty pretentious movies, y'know heavy on the symbolism, light on dialogue. As shown by another mighty fine shop dummy performance from Gosling. In fact you could probably watch this on mute and not miss much. I glad I didn't watch it with the wife, she would've out-WTFed me.

    Weird. Just fucking weird out of ten.

    Give yourself £5 or ½ gig, you're worth it.

    Robocop (1987) - 10/10 - One of my favourite films growing up, all the talk of the remake made me want to watch it again & it's just fucking phenomenal. The blend of violence & satire is pitched perfectly, the cast are all great, the effects still hold up pretty well, it's just a brilliant film. I don't think any director other than Verhoeven could have pulled this off as well as he did.

    The Wolf of Wall Street - 9/10 - Absolutely loved this, DiCaprio is fucking amazing. 3 hours completely flew by.

    "mighty fine shop dummy performance" :D

    I quite liked it. Not as good as Drive, but definitely worth watching. It constantly looked the business too.

    Outpost 11

    The blurb for this looked interesting so despite the bad reviews I 'd read I thought I'd give it a chance and I'm glad I did. Don't get me wrong this film won't set the world alight, but it has an interesting premise and while it doesn't quite deliver it does do enough to provide an entertaining watch.

    Outpost 11 is set in an alternate history where steam power still rules the world and Britain and Prussia are fighting the second 100 years war. The war is global and in an isolated base deep in the arctic circle three British soldiers are monitoring Prussian radio communications. There's a mysterious power core on the base and strange events start to put a strain on the three soldiers.

    The biggest problem with the film is the production level, it lacks polish. The three actors do a reasonable job with their roles and their descent into madness comes across well. The lack of budget is very evident and while it doesn't prevent the film from telling its story, it does prevent it from really shining. In many ways it feels more like a play than a film with the intimate setting and character led development.

    All in all I enjoyed it, it didn't realise its potential but it did enough to keep me watching and overall it did have some interesting ideas and some excellent moments (like the spider alliance).

    The Dyatlov Pass Incident

    Getting a bit fed up with this fake documentary fad now. There are some tense and claustrophobic scenes that managed to keep me interested but once the CGI creatures start to appear it all goes down the shitter.

    Aftershock

    This film is an average exercise in shock horror and gore, once it finally gets going. Unfortunately it takes half of the film to get going, so long in fact that I almost gave up. The set up isn't anything special, there is a group of men enjoying themselves in Chile, going to parties, clubs and seeing the sights. They meet a group of girls on a similar trip (with one exception, the miserable woman in the group) and go to the party of all parties.

    It's at this party where things finally get going in the form of an earthquake, things then go rapidly downhill for the party goers and the residents of the area. Pretty much everything that could go wrong then proceeds to do so.

    The film isn't terrible, but its not very inspired either. When it gets going it's brutal, but it not in an imaginative way, it just piles on whatever could go wrong. The production values are decent, the cast do a reasonable job, but nothing really stands out. It's on ok watch, but I wouldn't really recommend it.

    This has become my favourite Burton film with ease (and I do like most of his productions) It oozes charm, the animation is top notch and the design of the world an characters is particularly notable. I kept thinking back to the first half of Wall-e, presumable because of the bleak and lonely athmosphere.

    The sole bad mark - if one could call it that - would be the simplicity and naivety of the plot, although that's somewhat of a Burton staple I suppose.

    8.5/10 (I refuse to put in the obvious one there :p)

    Good film, I think Burton produced it, rather than directed. Shane Acker was the creative force, it's based on his short film, which is on YouTube.

    Robot & Frank - 6/10

    Did you want a robot buddy when you were a kid? Of course you did. How about wanting one when you're an old man with dementia?!

    Frank Langella plays, erm, Frank, whose son Hunter buys him a robot butler because he refuses to go to a home.

    It takes some turns that are unexpected when you look at the slightly twee poster, but it's all the better for it. The only problem is really Frank Langella, who had "phoning it in" written all over him throughout the whole thing IMHO. Maybe he's just like that in everything, I dunno. I didn't really enjoy his performance anyway.

    A nice little surprise with occasionally excellent shots that's let down by some weak lead acting. It's on Netflix if you fancy it.

    Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug 7/10

    There's no doubt that graphically it's a really enjoyable film, but it's really unnecessary that they split a rather short book into three 3hour movies. There's really a lot of generic and predictable scenes going on, which made me upset after watching it. During the film, it was pretty entertaining tho.

    A Case of You - 6/10

    Whiney sidekick from Die Hard 4 plays neurotic whiney hack writer, in predictable rom-com where he essentially stalks his targeted female via her Facebook profile. Just fake all the interests that she has and he'd be her perfect man, right ?

    Fairly average, only sparking into life with an outstanding selection of cameos and bit parts from Dinklage to Vince Vaughn, delivering one of the greatest lines in history:

    "You've got my wife and her whorepack cunt-bumping each other over this."

    I take it back what I've said about Robocop, watching it now and it still is pretty great, it's just the shoddy stop animation on ED209 that pisses me off.

    12 years a slave

    Was trying a little too hard to create "moments" at times but the story was told well and it was an enjoyable watch despite the source material.

    Frozen - 7.5/10

    I've seen this twice now, and it's a bit better the second time. The songs catch on more quickly and I enjoy picking out smaller moments that I missed the first time round. That said, I wouldn't label it as a 'Disney Classic' like so many others have been doing. Tangled was miles better, and just more strongly directed. Something about the direction in Frozen felt... flat.

    Glad the snowman wasn't an annoying character, and ended up being one of the best parts of the film!

    Rush - 8/10

    Good film. The marketing was a little misleading, as it seemed like the movie really centered on James Hunt, but watching it, it definitely felt more like Niki Lauda's story, even though it seemed like screen time was evenly divided between the two. Phenomenal job from Daniel Bruhl, especially after watching actual videos of Niki Lauda afterwards and seeing how accurately he was portrayed.

    The Butler - 5/10

    Pleasing enough, but oddly cast. Watching Forest Whitaker and Oprah Winfrey snog is something I'd prefer not to see. Also, John Cusack is President Nixon. WTF? Couldn't take it seriously.

    Wolf of Wall Street - 10/10

    After mulling it over, I've decided that I love this film, but probably won't watch it again for a while. I felt quite dirty for enjoying it as much as I did, and it took me a day for the feeling to really wash away. Leonardo Dicaprio is fantastic, and I think he really deserves an Oscar for his performance, even though he'll sometimes fall back into his "shouting is the same as acting" routine. Jonah Hill is also pretty great. The movie is just one giant drug.

    Also, I seemed to hold my breath every time Margot Robbie appeared on screen. Holy mother of God. It was like discovering the pink ranger all over again. JUST LOOK AT HER



    Also, she's 23, which I can't quite believe. She was probably 22 when they shot the movie. Dicaprio is almost 40 (which is also hard to believe).

    12 Years a Slave - 8/10

    Probably one of the more accurate depictions of slavery I've seen in a movie. Black slavery in America has always been a bit too sugarcoated in most films (I'm looking at you, The Color Purple) so it was grounding to see a much rawer depiction. Great casting all around, though Brad Pitt was incredibly jarring.

    Anyway... that's my novel of a post :p

    Ó mar salgado, quanto do teu sal
    São lágrimas de Portugal!

    Quantos filhos em vão rezaram!
    Quantas noivas ficaram por casar

    Ok, seriously.

    How can a film which uses a chewing gum analogy to explain demonic posession scare anyone let alone crapping pants?
