    It's still nowhere near as bad as you say it is.

    I just watched it Doug and it really didn't blow me away, probably 5-6/10 for me. I'm sure it was a lot better in the cinema.
    I personally think watching it at the cinema, especially an IMAX in 3D, elevates this "entertainment experience" to a 9 or 10.

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

    It's mediocre. Just like all but one of Soderberg's films.
    And as others have said, that's the worst sin in creativity.

    Gravity

    I've been looking forward to watching this, I'd heard many good things about it and I'm always up for a good space film and I'm pleased to say that I wasn't disappointed. The film starts with Sandra Bullock as a mission specialist repairing the Hubble space telescope, George Clooney is an experienced astronaut on his last mission. He's enjoying his last spacewalk and sharing some banter when disaster strikes. The Russians have shot down one of their own satellites and the debris starts a cascade event with other satellites being damaged and creating more debris in orbit.

    What we have here is a spectacular disaster movie, the graphics are stunning. The opening shots with the Earth moving slowly below is simply awesome. I can see why the film has been nominated for so many awards for its special effects, the film captures the feel of being in orbit very well - as far as I can imagine it anyway :-)

    The story is ok, not anything special but is solid and the two leads do good work with their role. George Clooney is usually good to watch and is his usual charming self in this. It's been a while since I've seen Sandra Bullock in action, but in this she's playing a more mature role than I've seen her play before and she does a cracking job of it.

    All in all I enjoyed watching this a lot, it's exciting, well paced and stunning to watch.

    8/10

    Gravity

    This film didn't interest me, I assumed it was going to be a mindless blockbuster - on par with something like Transformers. I couldn't be more wrong. Absolutely nail-biting and thrilling. Really enjoyed it and the visuals are superb. Highly recommended.

    8.5/10

    Now don't get me wrong, I like you, but you aren't a good writer. You've written many words but they aren't good ones and they don't deserve to be in the order you put them. That's why I'm scared of what you're doing with Frontier.

    12 Years A Slave
    Films based on historical events have always interested me. Many of my favourite films are based on real events: Downfall, Schindler's List, Mississippi Burning, Dances With Wolves etc So it was with great interest that I watched this film. Wow. What a huge disappointment. Everything on paper says I should love this film. But it has no soul. It's basically Hostel set in 19th century America. There's so little character development, there's very little in the way of storyline and the film is so enrapt in a binary narrative that it becomes tiresome.

    Schindler's List is a masterpiece because it expertly contrasts the depths of the human spirit, and shows how a society can become blind to the suffering of others and how we can easily dehumanise those who we consider separate - something we are all guilty of, I think.

    The biggest problem with 12YAS is that the focal point of the film appears to be the gratuitous violence. Any sensitivity or emotion is discarded in favour of showing the viewer a relentless parade of lynchings and flayings. The slave owners are largely presented as rabid lunatics, whilst the slaves are shown to be martyrs and scapegoats for their masters' whims.

    The film is much too heavy on the violence at the expense of building any real connection for the characters with the viewer because it's just so relentless in its cruelty. We just aren't permitted to view the characters beyond their binary roles of slaves and masters. Brad Pitt's role was so safe and self-congratulatory that it felt weak and "forced".

    Is it wrong to say that I found Django Unchained to be a vastly better film?

    5/10

    In the mood for political satire? This is the one to watch.

    Isn't Gravity 900p though? That said, the Sandra Bullock looks almost identical to the real Sandra Bullock. Skin textures are virtually perfect.

    Dallas Buyers Club 8/10 very good all round but not what its hyped up for.

    The Colony 6/10 wasn't expecting much but it was ok just a bit short.

    Iron Sky 7/10 Nazis flying saucers bad acting lol did enjoy it though
    ;)

    I used to be a gamer like you, then I took an arrow in the knee.

    The most recent Solaris has Natascha McElhone in it. Which makes it worth watching.

    The Descent 7/10

    Fun watch! I really enjoyed the combat scenes, looks like they had a lot of fun with it. What up with the Falmer? Is it just a coincidence that the feral humans have more than a passing resemblance to Skyrim's Falmer? Probably.

    So that ending. Am I to assume that, Sarah went crazy and killed her friends? And all the creature shit was just a manifestation of her crazed state?

    Like A New Hope (and all that follows). Everything after Leia gets stunned is a dream and in actual fact she had just stolen her dad's ship, gone on a joyride and he dragged her back home. She imagines everything to escape her boring life.

    What? No. The crawlers were real, but she never escaped. Unless you saw the US version where they don't put the last scene in so that she does.

    But she doesn't.

    The film was released 5 years before Skyrim, so coincidence is more than likely. From what I've just read, the Falmer are just Skyrim's version of Orcs from The Lord of the Rings.

    Yeah, that scene juggling for the sequel was a bit weird. Whilst I love the first one I can't actually remember pretty much anything about the second. Shame it was made really as the crazy theory is a much more interesting discussion.

    The soundtrack is the main reason I still watch the Soderbergh Solaris quite regularly. There's also a BBC Drama called A for Andromeda (featuring Tom Hardy just on the cusp of getting bigger movie roles) that I watch for pretty much the same reason.

    For the 8th night in a row i didn't sleep due to this bladdy illness, so decided to rewatch Misery and The Mist.

    Misery is a film i loved in my teens back when it was released, and its still really fun. I do find it all ends rather abruptly with no build up but the journey is fun, black as can be, entertaining and thrilling. James Caan does sarcasm and hatred really well too. 9/10 (nostalgia meter going off the scale!).

    the mist.
    watched this again as apart from Shawshank ive never really 'got' the whole Darabont love in. And i know a lot of people rate this film, but to me its just a tv movie level script with poor production and half the cast of the walking dead (2 now dead in the show due to being crap!). The fx are passable if not a bit shit, and the 'dark' ending is pretty naff to be honest. I mean they literally drove for 5 minutes and then gave up :D 5/10

    edit: i should mention in regards to Darabont, i don't like The Green mile.
