    Blazing Saddles is awesome but it's fair to say it loses its way in the last 20 mins or so.
    I like the fact that it knows comedies are hard to end and just goes crazy.

    Yeah Firefly should be left alone now. I love it, and Serenity, but nothing will live up to it. It's had a great wrap up anyway
    That's what I never understood about all the moaning. It actually got a film and a great ending, which most cancelled shows don't.

    Besides, don't loads of the main cast get killed in the end of the film?
    Yeah that they do.

    The story from Serenity was what Season 2 was supposed to be about anyway, so it really was a perfect continuation/wrap up.
    Really? It was decent enough considering it was a film rather than a full series, but the reavers reduced to mindless zombies due to a 'vaccine' gone wrong? There was more to the reavers in the series as they were made out to be much more. They pilot space ships and then switch to mindless horde mode.
    Its this 'plot reveal' which unfortunatley introduces plot holes

    We didn't find out about the preachers real background and there was no follow up on one of the best characters in the whole season, the bountly hunter from episode 14.

    99 problems and being ginger is one

    Joss said he was going to bring back the bounty hunter if it had been renewed. Such a shame.

    Like it or not, its the intended culmination of most plotlines.

    To be honest, a lot of shows could benefit from their last series being converted into a 90 minute movie.

    Some old screwball comedies still stand up pretty well. I still think that the first cinema scene in Sullivan's Travels is very funny.

    Dr Strangelove is one of the very best films I have ever seen, and remains very, very black despite the end of MAD and the fact that it's played in such a theatrical way. It's important to remember that while the characters are very OTT, the situation that arises in the film was considered to be quite likely. Nuclear strategists of the era considered it to be a far more realistic film than many straight nuclear war films released around the same time.

    As someone said, though, it is Kubrick, so it does polarise people.

    Paranormal Activity 3

    Paranormal Activity 1 and Paranormal Activity 2 were scary. Paranormal Activity 3 should maybe be re titled: Make You Jump Activity. The mum jumps out the wardrobe wearing a monkey mask. The Dad turns around and a girl is standing behind him. The Baby sitter says Boo into one of the cameras dotted around the house.

    10/100 Paranormal Activity 3 = utter pants..


    On a positive note. Iatleast I got to watch free on Netflix

    Alpha Papa.

    Not quite Alan at his best, but decent fun. I don't think they got his hair right in the film which is a shame.

    7/10

    Noah 7.5/10

    James Cameron's Titanic was very popular, because lots of people saw it and they like it, but I didn't like it because I like boats, and I don't like to see them sink, so I was very interested in Noah because it's pretty much the opposite of a boat sinking, because it floats rather than sinking which is a good thing for a boat.

    Noah is about a man called Noah who gets into tricky situations on his boat with his daughter who is a wizard and probably could have done more to help. Overall it was better than Titanic, not just because the boat doesn't sink but because it's got elephants in it.
    I read several reviews, they range from 1 to 10, but this is the best one I've read. Gotta see it for myself, I suppose.

    Just back from The Raid 2.

    Everything ramped up and extended, the gore, the violence, the camera work and the ferocity.

    Unfortunately the overblown story is also given the same treatment, and it takes an age to get going, with long, drawn out scenes of simplistic plot explanation breaking up the action all too frequently. The re-use of certain actors caused some confusion, along with two scenes that would've benefitted from some exposition.

    Thankfully, the finale restores some faith, but at over two hours there's ample that could've been edited out and spared my back killing me by the final third. After rewatching the relentless first this morning, the sequel is a tad too bloated for it's own good.

    Once it hits disc, with the advantage of cue and a comfy bed, it'll be an 8/10. But not until then.

    The Raid 2- 90%
    I liked it just as much as I did the first one. There's definitely a more satisfying story, and the fights/action scenes, of which there are plenty well spread out over the 2.5hr running time, are even more violent and well choreographed than the first movie's. (There was a lot of audible outbursts of excitement from the audience, at the more bone crunchy aspects of the fisticuffs)
    One thing I don't get is the criticism that Iko Uwais isn't in it enough. He's definitely still the star of the show, I never felt he was absent from the story or the action for too long. :/

    It's because he hates Mass effect 3, isn't it. Yeah, it bugs me too.

    Enders Game (6/10)

    Nowhere near as bad as I thought.
    Kind of feels like buying a game, but only playing the training mode over and over again, never trying the actual game itself.
    It all feels very pointless, but I admire how dark it is.

    Beyond Outrage - 8/10

    Sequel to Takeshi's Outrage from a few years ago, continuing the underworld politics of the Yakuza around five years later. Lots of plotting and scheming, punctuated bursts of violence, same composer with a stripped back soundtrack, and everything just solidly presented in it's slow methodical march to a resolution.

    Talk of a third to shore up a trilogy, but where to take it could prove awkward. Here's hoping.

    In my opinion, Takeshi Kitano is one of the best directors still alive - so it's really depressing to see him making these production line gangster films. Just retreading what people want to see from him, rather than taking chances on new projects.
    I'll be the first to admit his recent artistic efforts didn't really hit the mark, but I'd love him to keep trying.

    'Sonatine' is very near the top of my favourite films of all time.

    Man of Steel - 6/10 - Reasonably enjoyable though a bit too po faced in it's delivery. It was going for meaningful quite a bit and failed at that. I also think they could have skipped the Smallville bits as I just don't think there is any point going over them again. It also suffered from Lucas syndrome where there was far too much going on in a lot of the action scenes.

    Anyway overall I thought it was watchable enough though if they make another one in this series you have to wonder where they can take it given the level of threat in this one.

    Strangely, i thought the Smallville parts were by far the best and probably the only scenes with any charm and character.

    @Gambit1977 I just think I am overly familiar with the Smallville origin story. They could easily of left the origin a little more unknown and I think it would have worked. A vague hint at being adopted would have worked for me.
