    John Dies At The End - 6/10

    It gets a bit shit at the end but till then it's pretty good.

    From the directory of Phantasm and Bubba Ho-Tep, this is as quirky a story as you'll get. A drug "soy sauce" can send it's users through time and dimensions. Through this, the main characters learn that they are humankind's last hope against a dark and sinister force.

    I really enjoyed this film to a point. It's has a very oddball nature and you're never really sure what's going to happen next. Kind of like the first viewing of Donnie Darko. The pacing is good and the banter between the two main characters is superb.

    It's all going along rather nicely until a particular part of the plot about 20 mins from the end. It's not that it gets too 'out there' but it sets something up but doesn't seem to know what to do with itself. It's a bit of a mess. A shame really as it could have been an excellent film.

    I do like director Don Coscarelli. He wrote and directed The Beastmaster. which, we all fucking know, is the best fucking film ever :D

    Iron Man 3. 8/10. Very funny and I have a man crush on RDJ.
  • Deleted user 5 May 2013 23:37:15
    The only things I enjoyed about Iron Man 3 were the jokes and Ben Kingsley. Everything else was disposable, one-time junk. Overlong too - seemed longer than its 130 mins.

    I'm bored of one-time junk films. Seems to be FA in the line of blockbusters that merit a re-watch, yet the hype machines seem to get better and better.

    I tell a lie - the best thing about IM3 was the trailer for Fast & Furious 6, with a Ford Escort Mk1! Couldn't believe what I was seeing. Can't believe I'm considering going to see it, not 'cos of the baldy heads or anyone else, but 'cos of a favourite old car. Looked fab.

    Just this week bought the book of this to read. Didn't even know there was a film.

    Liked Bubba HoTep though so look forward to watching this when I'm finished with the book.

    Jack Reacher 68%
    Kind of enjoyed it but man Cruise is badly miscast. Not read the books so not from that point of view, he just isn't at all intimidating, and roll really requires intimidating.

    Parker - 7/10

    Well, it's The Stath. So you know what to expect. A couple of stand-out scenes, including an awesome fight in the apartment. But Jennifer Lopez made it almost unwatchable for me, with haunting flashbacks to Maid in Manhattan. Ugh.

    Safe Haven - 6/10

    Well, it's a Nicholas Sparks movie, so again, you know what to expect. Clichés and Mills & Boon style soapy fluff. It's also got an annoying bit at the end where you find out she's been friends with a metaphorical ghost of his wife or some shit. Yawn. It's also probably not giving too much away to say it rips its main storyline from Sleeping with the Enemy. But Julianne Hough is incredible to look at throughout, so it still felt like time spent wisely.

    @Blaketown - My stance is that just because something is about horror tropes, doesn't mean it has to be scary, to me it was a satire.

    I don't really find most horror films scary tbh, but I enjoyed the writing in this so much, it was ridiculous fun. Each to their own.
    Pretty much how I saw it. Watched it last night, thought it was great. I did watch it without any preconceptions though, knew nothing other than it was written by Weedon So knew it would have something about it. Great stuff I thought. Original, clever and well written. 8/10

    7 Days (2010) 7/10

    “A doctor seeks revenge by kidnapping, torturing and killing the man who raped and murdered his young daughter.” - IMDb

    (from the Dvd cover)
    ***** “Some sequences of torture make Saw look like kid’s stuff” - Gorezone Magazine

    I found the film dull. It is French language with subtitles. The positives include, the film feels well made and acted. There is no twist, no crazy (some might say silly) Saw ideas. It is plain and simple, a doctor takes revenge on the killer of his daughter by doing a bit of damage to him using his doctor skills, and it all takes place over a period of 7 Days. I’m not too sure why the film is an 18 as it’s not all that graphic. It is slow going. I did like the fact that it comes across like something serious. I’ve seen better films.

    A couple of scifi Netflix jobbies over the weekend, War of The Worlds and I Am Number Four. Both entertaining fluff, the latter of which intrigued me enough to seek out info on a sequel, which ain't happening.

    7/10 a piece.

    Lake Placid - The Final Chapter

    Silly, but not as much fun as it should have been. Piss poor CGI doesn't help.

    I am glad that it isn't happening. I Am Number Four was a textbook example of a bland, soulless cash-in on the latest teenage craze (Twilight, in that case). You could tell that nobody cared about it - not the director, and especially not the actors.

    Raincoat 9/10

    An Indian film recommended to me by a friend. It's essentially a story of two separated lovers who meet up and can't bring themselves to tell the truth about their lives.

    It's a slow burning film, but its very well done. You feel both sympathy and irritation at these people and their actions.

    I think it's one of those that you will either love or hate, I loved it.

    The Prophecy

    One of my favourite films. Christopher Walken does a great job of being Gabriel and Viggo Mortensson makes an excellent, if brief appearance.

    This is quite literally the case. Look up the scandal about James Frey and the making of the book. It's the writing equivalent of a sweatshop - getting recent English graduates to write the book for him with no credit, royalties or rights whatsoever. James Frey in himself is controversial enough - he faked a memoir about drug abuse and jail time.

    Yeah, I read that article a while back about "James Frey's Fiction Factory", and the whole Oprah controversy. What a bellend.

    But aside from that, the movie is tripe. Aside from the plotholes and acting, everyone just looks so bored. Everything is so calculated, even the merchandise. It's completely cynical, so I'm glad that it isn't getting a sequel.

    An excellent film that is a cautionary tale about a young man who's doing ok and how meeting a woman ruins his life.

    Wall-E's character is well realised and the first part of the film is simply superb. After that it's merely ok, but does have a few smile moments.

  • Deleted user 6 May 2013 17:02:08
    I thought it was pretty terrible. Stylistically, it's a complete mess, as if he read Hemingway and McCarthy and just merged the two styles with little thought for the narrative reasons behind the usage.

    Cloud Atlas - 9/10
    I went into this knowing that it had massively polarized critics, that it was very long (3 hours) and that it had numerous separate plotlines (style/setting/period). I'd love to know what others thought, and I imagine it will have drawn a lot of criticism along the lines of being overly convoluted, new-agey, post-modern wank (etc.) but for what it is worth I absolutely loved it.

    It really worked for me. I felt invested in all of the intertwining narratives, I enjoyed the ensemble cast and performances, and it is truly beautiful to watch. I'd definitely recommend it, but perhaps best watched when you have quite a bit of free time one evening (and possible a bottle of vino).

    Michael Bay needs somef therapy. remember the inexplicable part in transformers 2 with John Malkovitch tickling a transformer? The whole movie is a reenactment of this nonsensical shit.
    Really that bad? It's had some decent reviews for a Bay film. Just curious but is The Rock any good? I thought he was the best thing in Be Cool when he decided to branch out a little bit.

    The Details - 3/10

    Ouch. The definition of a badly thought out plot, combined with a lacklustre script resulting in a piss poor suburban (black ?) drama. Spiderman 'Seabiscuit' Maguire plays a smug, got-it-all gynacologist, whose life slowly begins to unravel via a chain of randomly linked and bizarre events. There's even the obligatory 10min Ray Liotta bit-part. That's how poor this is.

    Oba, Last Samurai (aka Battle of the Pacific) - 7/10

    Loosely based WW2 historical drama following Japanese officer Oba, a survivor of the infamous Banzai Charge at Saipan, who subsequently retreated into the central mountain area with 50-odd soldiers, 200 odd civilians, and waged a guerrilla war against the US Forces for almost two years, long after Japan had surrendered.

    As factual as U-571, but entertaining nonetheless, and features a Ray Liotta bit-....... I jest. It's got the forgotten Baldwin clone instead.

    Friends With Kids 5/10

    Let my Mrs choose something on Netflix as I was watching Game of Thrones later. This actually started well - there was plenty of bite in the dialogue and it seemed quite interesting.

    But after half an hour the ball fell into the "rom com" rut and you could tell that it wasn't going to deviate one bit. And from then on you could guess every beat of the remaining time.

    Shame. There were some good performances - certainly better than a regular chick flick. But it didn't have the bravery to continue the good work done in the first half hour.

    Well done to the female lead though as she co-wrote and directed. And while I wasn't convinced by the plot she wrote some great dialogue, and got great performances from the cast. So she got it half right.

    Best Bond ever? Or just significantly better than the last one? Definitely the latter.


    Also, Beasts of the Southern Wild

    Didn't get on with this at all. One of those films that half convinces you that you're just not cultured enough to get it but ultimately you realise it's a load of old wank.

    4/10 - purely for the early scenes, which held a bit of promise.
