    Started to watch the latest Star Trek film, Into Darkness, a while ago and I don't know if my televisions speakers are up to it, but the voices are so very quiet on the normal optimal movie volume yet during the action scenes, it becomes unbearably loud.

    ... all I was doing was holding the remote control and adjusting the volume accordingly every time someone speaks and turning it all the way back down again when the action scenes take place.

    Turned it off in the end once John Harrison started firing at the Starfleet HQ during their emergency meeting; volume up, volume down, volume up, volume down and so on and on.

    Not a fan of Simon Pegg as Scotty anyway.
    Your TV should have an option in the audio settings to automatically regulate the volume.
    I had to put that on as a lot of modern blockbusters are quite badly mixed in terms of sound effects to dialogue.

    Pacific Rim

    Really shit. Action bits are like a big budget episode of power rangers, acty bits are just bad. That said, I stuck with it because I have a soft spot for stupid action films, but that probably reflects badly on my tolerance of shitty movies rather than acting as any form of recommendation. Probably better when you're drunk.

    33/100

    Dawn of the apes - 40/100

    Well shot with some decent music but riddled with clichés and sub par acting. Just watched the first one and amazed in the drop in quality.

    Indeed it does. I remember thinking two things at the time: "this film is really shit" and "did they cast him because of the depth charge bit, or did they write the depth charge bit because of him?"

    Such a poor film though, strong sense of "video game movie, phone it in, nobody gives a shit"

    Man of Tai Chi - 6.5/10

    Keanu Reeves directs and stars in this film. Decent fighting scenes save this film from being total drongo.

    Keanu plays Bad Neo. A evil man who organises fight club events and raises the stakes as the fights get more and more dangerous.

    Sometimes, just sometimes, Keanu gets away with showing off how truly awful his acting is. Not in this. The is utterly, magnificently awful in ways you cannot possibly imagine. Probably worth watching for his bad guy laugh alone.

    However, I really enjoyed the fight sense which pits various styles against each other. The Man of Tai Chi is one of the people Keanu selects to be in his club and finds himself a rapidly rising star. Loss of innocence and greed both play a part in the somewhat flimsy plot.

    No matter how awful Keanu is in this though, I did start to smile for the right reasons when he finally decides to kick some ass, and starts going Bad Neo.

    As a first directorial attempt, it's not really that bad. Whoever did the fight choreography did an excellent job. Much better than 47 Ronin.
    I thought it was decent, myself, even though the plot was incredibly generic. I think Keanu starred as the bad buy in order to raise the film's profile and get the cash to make it. Tai Chi guy is damn good.

    Raiders of the Lost Ark - 10/10

    Sorry, i grew up with this film. I cannot give it anything less.


    Guardians of the Galaxy - 9/10

    Really sci-fi, more than i was expecting. Great fun, great visuals and some very funny moments.
    Give it a go.

    The fights in Man of Tai Chi are awesome and filmed in continuous shots rather then quick edit Bourne mode that you get a lot.

    I was watching this BBC3 to, absolutely 10/10 they really do not make 'em like that anymore...might knock a mark of for making me look silly though, was being all film geek smug and telling the mrs of the cobra reflection only to find they fixed it :)

    Bar a some dodgy green screen here and there and a blatantly painted backdrop in one scene it looked quite special in HD to, may look at the blu set for the indy films.

    Guardians of the Galaxy - 8/10

    Not perfect, but bloody great fun. Space opera that isn't afraid to be itself, and doesn't see the need to be all serious and grimdark just to prove something (cough Superman cough).

    Everyone's good in it. Chris Pratt is excellent as 'Star Lord'.
    Sadly Zoe Saldana is married, although on the plus side that doesn't actually make her any more ridiculously out of reach for me than if she'd been single.

    Doesn't stray from the formula but that's not a bad thing. Funny as fook all the way through. Me and my mate had different opinions on whether it was better than the first but regardless if you liked the show and the first film you'll still love it.

    And I think this might do very well at the box office. Went on opening night last week to Guardians and walked straight in to a cinema a quarter full. With this we had to join a queue that started quite someways outside the cinema for half an hour just to get in. Was fooking rammed.

    7/10

    Yeah, the first is one of the most successful British comedies ever. Second one will hopefully do well, I loved the TV show and first film (final series was a bit weak). Although there doesn't seem to have been much marketing for this film, saw a poster on a bus for it last week and was surprised how soon it was out!

    All I've seen is that 'fire wankers' teaser, which was brilliant :D

    I didn't mind the first film, but like a lot of these series that make it to the big screen, it felt like the same jokes stretched out over 90 mins. Definitely had its moments though and appeals to my juvenile sense of humour.

    I had heard bad things about this movie so I never bothered with it before but I actually kind of enjoyed it. The script and acting were cack, I didn't bother following the story but the movie definitely delivers in terms of giant robots fighting giant monsters. I just wish there were more robots.

    2/10 if you are watching with your missus or expecting a storyline
    9/10 if you like robots fighting monsters

    I can't help cracking up when they dance-walk across the empty club. It's painfully reminiscent.

    Still an amazing film. The only two bits that stick out for me are the kind of thing they didn't bother with pre-VHS - when repeated viewings meant folks started to notice stuff.

    They both involve the truck. The truck explosion is completely devoid of people. It's like the busy city just suddenly emptied.

    Secondly the drag behind the truck - again, suddenly we're away from anyone and there's not much backdrop. Feels a very empty separate scene from some of the camera angles.

    But these are super-nitpicks and the kind of thing one only picks up on for watching the film for decades.

    Curious, I have seen a lot of plugging for the second film. They have been on TV loads doing interviews. There was even a fucking stupid talking-head thing last night where they talk about how funny all the episodes are.

    You are a factory of sadness.

    The amazing spider-man 2: 7/10
    standard block buster film that wasn't as good as the first one on the reboot and not anywhere near as good as the 2nd in the Raimi versions.

    I looked it up after because I was baffled. Seems they got rid of it for the DVD release. They left in the blue van reflection and bouncing slab of rock though :)

    @Maturin

    The truck scene not only clears people it filmed in different locations to. Raiders has loads of these little mistakes, actually fun to pick them out or hear about them.

    One of favourites is the self repairing porsche in commando .

    Ha!

    I loved that episode. Sheldon's world crumbling when he can't think of any reason How Indy made any tangible difference to how the story pans out with him being there.

    The amount of times people have brought that up in conversation without actually referencing the Big Bang theory as source.

    It's spread like wildfire
