    Captain America: The Winter Soldier (3D IMAX) - 8.5/10

    A most unexpected pleasure. Marvel have taken The Avengers most boring character and have crafted what is arguable their finest film.

    They've surrounded Cap with a bunch of excellent support characters and built up an intriguing plot which they all play a part. The villain of the film, the said Winter Soldier is a suitably powerful adversary and played very well.

    It's well acted and it's great to see Robert Redford kick back and have some fun. If you like a bit of Scarlett Johansson, well she's in it a lot too and not just as eye candy.

    The action scenes are extremely well done and are fast, tense and exciting. There's not that many blockbusters recently that get this right. So what if you can destroy an entire city in spectacular fashion? That gets dull quickly if not done right. It's good to see close quarters action scenes for a change.

    Two scenes within the credits. The one in the middle is very interesting. The one at the end of the film is rather predictable. However, Marvel have nailed it for this film. A thoroughly enjoyable watch.

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

    Most boring character?! He's probably the best, because he's the most strongly defined.

    Anchorman 2

    Nowhere near as funny as the first although there were a few genuinely funny scenes. Way too long aswell, too many comedies lately overstay their welcome.

    5/10

    I watched Man of Steel a few weeks back for the first time since the cinema. After moaning for years about how I wanted to see Supes punch a man into the sun, I was given exactly what I asked for and couldn't have been more bored by it.

    Watching him fight the CGI snake thing is awful, and when the final Zod battle kicks off I just wanted it to end!
    My mates at work loved man of steel. I fucking hated it, and I keep thinking. Have I missed something that they have seen?

    I think the problem he faces is having been in just one movie before The Avengers where there was somebody better than him in almost every way so it was only really his shield that sets him apart. Obviously it's his strategic thinking and what-not that's his most impressive attribute but that was boiled down to 2 scenes and about 20 seconds in the movie. He's probably one of the more interesting characters but in a series of superhero movies the main characters will be judged by most on their super powers and in that department Captain America is comparatively lacking. It seems that the latest movie helps with it all in some way at least though. I'm going to have to wait until next weekend to see it now though unfortunately!

    Yeah, probably going to get canned for this but fuck it im pished. Just watched:

    47 Ronin - 8/10

    Giving it a solid eight out of ten; I know it got fucking panned and there is undoubtedly a lot of less than adequate stuff going on here, but still I thoroughly enjoyed it. Well worth a watch after a few jars anyway...

    The Counselor: 2/10
    What a waste of time and money. 1 point for the cast and another for the standout performance from Ms Cruz's mascara.

    Completely agree. I saw it yesterday. Really great film. Had quite a Bourne vibe at times. A great blend of character stuff and some big action. The only downside - as ever - was the trailer gave too much away about the ending.

    Me too. It's a nice silly Sci-Fi B movie and they don't make many of that type of film these days.

    Escape Plan

    I wanted to enjoy this, Arnie and Stallone together should have been a lot of fun to watch. The premise is ok, Stallone is an expert in breaking out of prisons, the intro which establishes the character is actually pretty good. From there he's tasked with breaking out of a secret prison. He then teams up with Arnie who's another prisoner and things go down hill from there, both for sly and the film.

    That's not to say that it's completely terrible, it has it's moments. The interaction between the two leads is moderately amusing and the prison governor is good, although he's much better in Person of Interest. The prison set up is also well done. I guess that's the biggest disappointment, the components are there but it doesn't push to make anything with them. It drags on for a while and the ending is a bit predictable.

    Vinnie Jones continues with his everlasting role as a thug, although he doesn't look quite as menacing in tight black armour. Still, all in all it manages to be ok, I was mildly entertained, but it could have been a hell of a lot better.

    5/10

    Escape Plan - 4/10

    Just watched this again. Pretty much everything TechnoHippy said. I enjoyed it a lot more first time I watched it at the cinema. I don't think I'll watch it again.

    6.5/10 for me. It made me chuckle quite a lot, but felt a bit forced at times (the celeb fight at the end for example, didn't have the same impact 2nd time around) and was definitely 20 mins too long, but still worth a watch imo. If you liked the first, you'll like this imo.

    DO you think it is necessary to watch the first Cap. Am. movie before this one? I didn't watch the first due to having no interest in the character but I have heard a lot of good things about the new one.

    For continuity purposes I'd say yes, otherwise some things will be like, oh, ok, rather than oooooh.

    Yeah. Although I don't remember it being that good. His next film was Goldeneye and I was really surprised that he got chosen for it after that.

    Who knew, eh?

    @Mola_Ram

    You got my hopes up there as I shall be going to the cinema later this afternoon to see The Muppets.

    ... it is part of Cineworld and their 'Unlimited' holders only for the first week?!

    : (

    I remember watch Dredd and The Raid back-to-back last summer; so much awesomeness in a little over three hours.

    Yes, I know Mr. Mola Ram, you were not particular fond of Dredd ... boo-hoo.

    @CharlieStCloud Dredd was alright. I just didn't think it was the wall-to-wall awesomeness that a lot of people on here seemed to think it was. But then I've never read the comics, so maybe it just wasn't for me.

    Anyway, the raid was better. ;p

    The first one isn't that bad. I would certainly watch it before seeing the new one.

    The Purge 8/10

    Solid home invasion movie. The annual purge thing is just scene setting as the film is more of a commentary on the gulf between rich and poor and the prejudice this creates in lazy minds.

    The Great Raid 6/10

    Half hour too long but the action bits are well done. Thingy from Spiderman was average and predictably monotone in his performance.

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    I think I preferred Dredd to The Raid, but only just. I've never read the comics either (everything I know comes from the awful Stallone movie), but I liked it for being a gritty adult sci fi that gets straight to the point. No time wasted on introduction or explaining the world, just a day in the life of a cool character.
