    Watched End of Watch before which was very good. Watching Max Payne now which is very shit.

    I couldnt get away from that gangster girl and her awful acting. Although she doesnt feature a lot, it near enough ruined the film for me

    Scream 4

    Finally got around to watching this, and wasn't disappointed. It's pure fan service but as a fan this was a good thing. Loved how they moved the concept in-line with that's been happening in horror recently, and it was great to have Kevin Williamson back on board and his writing is as sharp as ever.

    Only disappointments was that Courtney Cox has become plastic, both physically thanks to some surgery, and in acting style, and her scenes were borderline embarrassing. All the chemistry between her and David Arquette was gone (for obvious reasons) and while they tried to allow for it in the script, they failed to make it work.

    Also, while the films were always at the tame end of the horror genre (and all the better for it), this one was pretty pathetic in those terms. The killings lacked imagination compared to the previous films and there wasn't a single scare in the whole thing.

    Those niggles aside though, there's a lot of good value in the film and if you do like the others then you'll like this. If you don't, then I definitely wouldn't bother.

    Safety not guaranteed

    Yeah, not bad. One of those indie comedies that has a nice premise and tone, and likeable characters, but ultimately doesn't really go anywhere. If you find yourself having to watch a romcom with the other half, then it's way better than your average Jennifer Aniston shit, but it felt like a missed opportunity in the end.

    At this point in her career 'Jennifer Aniston is shit' probably goes without saying.

    Resident Evil: Afterlife

    Got it from Lovefilm. Oh god, I wonder at myself, I really do. But I really enjoyed this! Why? I have no idea, I mean, the RE Films are shit right? Why do I keep watching them and not only that, really enjoying them?

    (a very guilty) 8 / 10

    Jack Reacher

    I enjoyed it, but the tone was all over the place veering from comic book fantasy to gritty violent thriller.

    Tom Cruise was obviously miscast and if I had any affection for the source material, I can imagine that would have pissed me off a great deal.


    The Guilt Trip

    Entirely predictable (the plot signposting is as blatant as it comes) and saccharine, but the banter between Seth Rogan and Babs just about makes up for it. Not especially laugh-out-loud funny, but a pleasant enough way to spend a couple of hours with the missus.

    The Karate Kid (Remake)

    Wow. I say remake but this is actually quite different to the original. Unfortunately, not in a good way.

    Compared to the original, the fight scenes were pretty dull and the story was a bit outlandish too. Jackie Chan was pretty good, but he ain't no Mr Myagi.

    I'd give it a 6/10, but I reckon kids who haven't seen the original would love it.

    Not convinced you are remembering the "fight scenes" in the original with 100% accuracy.

    Pitch Perfect 77%
    Watched for brownie points with the missus not expecting to enjoy it (it's about competitive acapela tournaments for fucks sake!) but really enjoyed it.
    The script is just cynical enough (without turning mean spirited) to counter act the cheese of the story and Rebel Wilson is brilliant.
    Aca-lot of fun.

    Evil Dead (2013) 9/10

    Really enjoyed this yeaterday and I even managed to get the missus to come along as well which surprised me. First of all, it isnt scary in the sense of impending horror, once the bad shit starts it just doesnt relent and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout. The character development is pretty non existent as well but tbh I didnt want to see it for the story. The gory bits are really gruesome and untrained horror fans might struggle with some of the scenes.
    If this wasnt a remake and came out as it stands today, I would give it a perfect 10 but it is just too difficult not to compare it to the original, which as well know is a great film.
    Many reviewers are saying that this film lacks the humour of the original but I always tbought 2 and 3 were the funny ones and the 1st was just a straight up horror. Overall it is one of the best horrors I have seen for a very long time and the news that there will be a sequel, plus Raimi is doing AoD 2 is great news for horror fans.
    As far as modern remakes go, this one is the best and I cannot wait for the blu ray

    Oblivion 4/10 or 8/10
    Pretty, no doubt, but lacking substance and entertainment… if you’re not a sci-fi fan. As a standalone film it’s got almost nothing going for it but some above average acting and some very pretty CG backgrounds. So 4/10 if you watch it like that.

    If you like sci-fi and have watched a shit ton of it then this film instantly gets boosted to 8/10, because it’s like the Where’s Wally of classic sci-fi shit. I had great fun tuning out of the so-so story and just picking on references, and I honestly look forward to watching it on DVD so I can hunt around for a few a may have missed.

    It’s a bit soulless – like its lead actor – and the action scenes were pointless (I swear they added them just for the trailer) but there’s some good stuff in here if you have the patience to watch it.

    The Place Beyond the Pines 9/10

    Thank you to whoever it was recommending this a few pages back (I think I described the trailer as Drive on motorbikes)
    The film is little to nothing like Drive and Ryan Gosling, Eva Mendes and Bradley Cooper get to flex their acting muscles in a rather fantastic film that is in turns quiet, loud and very beautiful. The direction is something to behold - ear crashing bike sequences, proper close ups of conversations - you feel like a fly on the wall of the character's lives.
    Very highly recommended.

    @Lotos8ter I remember being so upset when I saw the trailer - because it was a poor reflection of the film.

    Glad you enjoyed it, I thought it was a very thought-provoking film, with some superb performances.

    Casino Jack (2010) 8/10

    Kevin Spacey is excellent (as per usual). This is one of those Blu-ray films that sits in the budget section at Tesco’s for £5, which is off putting. I gave it ago, and it was worth it. When the shit hit’s the fan, It really hits hard. What make’s it all so much more entertaining, is the story is based on true events. The only downside is, once you’ve seen it once, there’s little reason to see it again. Come this weekend, I’ll exchange this along with The Imposter at Cex.

    Trouble with the Curve - 8/10

    Baseball drama with Eastwood as a scenery chewing, cantankerous ol' bastard of a baseball scout, whose failing eyesight and steadfastness to traditional methods are placing him in danger of being retired. High flying lawyer daughter Adams accompanies him for a crucial weekend to help assess a rising star, and bond. Badly.

    Lots of little sub-plots throughout, including some average Timberlake support, and all plays out very nicely indeed.

    Dirty Girl - 7/10

    Christ. Really struggling to find some decent films. Juno Temple ? Hmmmmm.....

    Temple playing the class whore in a retro (late 70's/early 80's?) comedy-drama, dumped into Special Ed for her antics. Teams up with a lardy homosexual, turns fag-hag, and brings him out of his shell during a road-trip to find her biological father, while struggling to find her own place.

    Sharp, biting script, hilarious at times, cheesy soundtrack and a complete surprise. Pity it loses that comical edge for soppy melodrama towards the final third, ending on a slightly stronger but clichéd finale. It's also gayer than gay, despite JT and a variety of shorts and hotpants.

    And an absolutely brilliant mechanic of 'the baby', the real star of the show. Had me in stitches.

    Agree completely with your review, except I still find Knightley attractive. Or I would if she stopped grimacing all the time. And ate a sandwich.

    Star Trek: Into Darkness 7/10

    As much as i Enjoyed the star trek reboot ultimately it was a pretty naff trek film with a muddled confusing plot and rushed action. But hey it looked good and the bloke who created Lost directed it so it made shit loads of money.

    This is a better film but the same criticisms also apply.  Why oh why are the space battle sequences so quickly edited that they become an incomprehensible blur of lens flare and phaser fire.

    Why do we only ever see the Enterprise for less than 3 seconds at fucking odd angles three inches in front of your face.

    Simon Pegg is still not funny.

    The music score is still missing/forgettable.

    The plot in this much simpler e. g.  Kirk is sent to stop the renegade cumberbatch against his own crews wishes, and he faces his Kobayashi Maru no win situation against a bigger better foe but this merely serves as setup for lots of trek action. But its action that simply lacks any real excitement or edge.

    Unfortunately no matter how hard it tries this aint no Wrath of Khan. Better than the first reboot but again for me something is missing.

    Oh yeah put the ray bans on its lens flare ahoy.

    It felt like a Bond film, which was good. Not great, but reasonably entertaining.

    The Five-Year Engagement - 3/10

    The worst film I've seen in quite a while. I don't know how much Atapow was involved as a producer but it leans (nay depends) heavily on what little Bridesmaids connection it can repeatedly wring out of a humourless script, to the extent that the actors seem to treat it as some sort of bland stage improv skit (especially Emily fucking Blunt, who has the leading lady charisma of a tea towel); it tells you a lot when the best actor is Rhys Ifans playing a Welshman.

    Do not watch this movie.
