    Rush - 9 - really impressive and I'm not an F1 fan.
    Life of Pi - 9 - stunning film, really breathtaking in parts. Excellent story too considering the situation.
    Captain Phillips - 9 - brilliant tension and extremely well shot. Love the end section.
    Prisoners - 8 - just went on a little too long but still very good. Impressed with Hugh Jackson and Jake.

    Big Trouble in Little China

    Finally got round to watching this. Excellent! Very silly, but lots of fun. Kurt Russell does a great John Wayne impression.

    Our month-long focus on indie games starts with my look at the PS4's best game (still): Resogun!

    Prisoners was great (apart from the too neat finale), the rest I didn't care for

    In my top 20 for sure!
    Still my favourite Carpenter film - and that's saying something with The Thing and Escape From New York to choose from.

    Completely agree about the Prisoners ending. Just really liked the other films because they were a little different and well produced.

    Henry V, the Brannagh version.

    Probably the 10th time I have seen this and it blows me away every time. It really is the perfect adaption, exactly true to the source while also working as a film.

    The "We happy few" speech as well is probably the best speech I have seen put on film. Every time I watch it I also notice more and more incredible actors, the film really is a who's who of legends.

    This and Much Ado About nothing are my standard go to films if people ever say Shakespeare is boring and the language is difficult.

    10/10

    @CosmicFuzz

    I think very few people can deny that Big Trouble in Little China is the greatest film ... ever.

    The rewatchablility value alone is ridiculously brilliant. Think I have seen the very film at least sixteen or seventeen times and I'd gladly watch it again tonight if I could! As much as I love Escape From New York, The Fog, Halloween and The Thing, it is Carpenter at his best when you see the crazy side of his imagination.

    ... on another note altogether, I am going to see The Raid 2 tomorrow evening! Looking forward to seeing all those bone shattering scenes very muchly.

    The Grey - 6/10

    Alien with wolves. Liam Neeson is convincing as gruff/sad wolf sniper. Should have focused less on the wolves, more on the people. Dermot Mulroney underused, I didnt even know it was him until he took off his hat. First fifteen minutes are really, really great, less so thereafter.

    I'd actually rate Prisoners as the best of that bunch. Really enjoyed it, a plodding, growing tension and utterly bleak.

    I was *very* underwhelmed by Rush, after everybody raved about it so.

    Curiously, I went back to this and, while I could still see how powerful it was, I felt it was spoiled by Branagh's yodelling overacting and strange predator mouth.

    Noble: We're going to die
    Other noble: There's lots of them.
    Brian Blessed: And we're all tired
    Ken: WHO'S HE THAT WISHES SOOOOOO!

    LB, you really are a massive geek.

    It's becoming my new favourite drum to bang, but I'm utterly bemused by the general reaction it. It was bordering on a made for TV film for me.

    I really enjoyed Rush. Not a big fan of F1 in general but I found it really interesting. Would have been great to have watched it all back then.

    I was really looking forward to Rush but I was a bit disappointed by it. I thought with Ron Howard involved it would have had a budget over that of a TV movie.

    I liked the drama. But the race sequences were crap - varying between 30mph trying to look quick via editing and some shitty post production work.

    The slightly cheap look aside, the acting was also very much TV quality from everyone apart from Daniel Brühl. The British bits are absolutely cringe-worthy. Those first few scenes almost had me turn it off.

    Hobbit Part 2:

    I was in favour of what they did in the first one. I like the expanded lore and thought it worked quite well.

    In this one... not so much. Everything had the arse dragged out of it almost purely to make the guy who finally kills smaug less of a faceless drone.

    You could easily hack this down to 100 fairly lean minutes. We dont need Kate off lost, we dont need the bard family drama, we dont need stephen fry and really dont need a million shots of CGI orcs.

    Trim the fat next time, ffs.

    6/10

    Prisoners was good wasn't it. Hugh Jackman overacted a bit perhaps.

    Dragging this into three films was a massive error.

    For the love of god can someone tell me when the Lego Movie is out to buy?

    It's the first question out of my little lad's mouth every morning. Even Siri is getting fed up of him asking :D

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    I'm with you there.
    It was about the standard of a Crimewatch reconstruction.

    The effects were fucking awful.

    :) you never know, she might just start streaming it for him if keeps asking!

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

    Time for another trip to the cinema?

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