Yeah I'm just finishing watching them all the way through for the 1st time - great show! (apparently the actor who played one of the bosses from another mob family has died)

The Secret In Their Eyes - worth a watch, pacing was a bit confused but great performances

City Of God - gem of a film, funny, tragic & frightening - worth reading up on after watching

Knight and Day - didn't see it in cinemas given lukewarm reviews, but first hand opinion from someone with similar taste to me was positive. Recorded over Xmas and watched back over weekend.

Not a bad entry in the "action comedy romance" genre, but not as good as say Mr & Mrs Smith or True Lies in my view. Thought the very casual manner of Tom Cruise's character was probably what stood out, leading to some funny moments even as he's gunning down enemies and blowing up vehicles.

Don't understand the film title though - the Knight bit is explained, but I missed what Day refers to? More general criticism I suppose is that it's a touch too convoluted for this type of popcorn flick.

However, some good action sequences, although I'm not sure if intended as "heightened reality" rather than grittily lifelike (doesn't matter, as the film is meant to be bonkers and I thought the style suited it). Signs perhaps that director James Mangold will give us an entertaining visual experience for The Wolverine. And maybe Hugh Jackman will sing again, who knows.

Hugo - was ok if you can accept placing elements of a true story into a fictional setting. Kid actors were a bit annoying, the boy who plays Hugo looks like Gollum with a wig on & Chloe Grace Moretz can only do overacting with flared nostrils, overacting with awestruck grin and overacting with deep, meaningful gaze.

Anchorman The Legend Of Ron Burgundy - poor, found it immensely unfunny apart from the various news teams patrolling the streets in gangs ala West Side Story.

Pat Garret & Billy the Kid - pretty good apart from the fake blood. Unsentimental and avoids Western cliches to an extent.

i really enjoyed hugo fullstop..great fairytale. I like the child actor tbh and i just look at is as fiction only.. If it doesnt have any politcal points in a real come fictional story then i am fine with it. The films or tv shows that drag for me is when they put real political events into a fictional tale but do it for shock value and then it just ends up being propaganda..

anchorman is a love or hate film for most. I actually am one of the few that thinks its ok.. American humour that doesnt trancend that well i suppose.. A bit like the inbetweeners from this country i suppose.

GONW is one of my all time fav films.. Love DDL and dicaprio.

I saw Quartet at the weekend. I suspect it's a gentler comedy that some here might like but I really enjoyed it.

Many excellent performances. Pauline Collins topped the foursome for me. A delightful supporting role from Michael Gambon as well. Oh, and a cameo from the divine Sheridan Smith as a doctor - not totally convincing but as if that matters! Very Happy

Oh dear - not good, if that's all it is!

I assumed that the two lead characters were called K&D or would use them as aliases (and perhaps they did in an earlier draft of the script), so was left a bit perplexed when it didn't turn out to be the case.

I finally got around to watching 2001: A Space Odyssey. What a masterpiece it was. Kubricks best work IMO and it no doubt set the modern tone for this generations sci-fi films, hence why they have imrpoved from the silly martian invasions, etc.

I decided I needed to watch 2010: The Year We Make Conact as I heard Dr Bowman made an appearance. The theme of the film was different to the first. It was nowhere near as good, but still a good film to watch. 2001 needed a follow up and 2010 did just that.

I watched Gangster Squad the other night. Was slightly disappointed, as I generally enjoy films of this genre. The script was pretty weak, and I expected more from Ryan Gosling. Sean Penn was pretty good as Mickey Cohen, as was Josh Brolin as the main antagnoist

'Unknown' with Liam Neeson. Okay start, slow middle and then quite exciting, action type, similar to Taken ending with fights galore etc.

7.5 out of 10.

Festen - the original Dogme 95 film and second I've seen after Julien Donkey Boy. Wasn't sure what to expect given the subject (a 60th birthday party), thought it might be a load of pretentious w@nk but it was quite riveting. Convincing performances and pleasantly understated finale.

Gangster Squad today, too many characters and not enough time to get invested ointo them at all some very good spots by Penn in particular but only average overall.

5/10

Agree with you on Gangster Squad Thomond. I went to see it last week. Tried to be like 'The Untouchables' but because it lacked heart and depth with no character investment it ended up like 'Dick Tracey' in parts. So much potential, so disappointing.

Stand up guy. 5/10

I must be a sucker for pachino and walken.. But should have realised that anything pachino is in recently is below par.

Kind of enjoyed parts of it- But you truely have to suspend your belief for this film. Its shockingly bad in parts.

On the plus side- good to see them look so battered, and it has them in the film- its still interesting to see them!!.. Anyway if anyone needs a hit of one of these actors, seven physcopaths is the better option with walken(and that is only a 6/10- overyly confiused- one of them films that has clearly been influenced by Guy Ritchie- but the yanks cant quite pull them off)

edit just realised the director and writer(londoner with irish stock) of seven physcopaths was the same guy that did in brugge, and it is a completely UK production!!!should have guesed i suppose. Anyway although quite an interesting film and concept.. It didnt hit the mark like in brugge did!

Flight - either 7/10 or 9/10, i cant quite decide whether i thought it was an obvious ending or not!

Either way, a good film, well acted and thoroughly enjoyable!

Spartacus - hugely disappointing, especially considering it was directed by Kubrick (though it seems he didn't have full control over it) overly moralistic and sentimental, laughable action scenes & annoying soft focus whenever the female love interest was on-screen. Superb performances from Charles Laughton, Peter Ustinov & Laurence Olivier though.

Not sure if this qualifies, but I'll include anyway - The Dark Knight Returns Part 1 (latest Warner Bros Batman animated movie on DVD).

An adaptation of the groundbreaking Frank Miller graphic novel, which I can't believe I first read more than 25 years ago. This instalment covers books 1 and 2 (i.e. the first half of a 4 book series). Pretty good attempt, in that it's a faithful representation of the events and the look (to a degree) of the source material. Arguably, the intercutting of TV news footage is perhaps too faithful - although it's a good satirical plot device which adds colour to the semi-dystopian world and some of the lesser characters, it feels a bit overdone in this format.

As for differences, there's a noticable absence of the cold war backdrop, but that might come through in the next movie, as it's part of the precursor to the showdown in book 4. Something else which is missing is Batman's inner monologue, although there are references here are there - e.g. instead of him complaining to himself that he's so old that he needs to use his legs to climb a rope, there's a moment where he unsuccessfully tries to climb using his arms only.

The fights really come to life in moving pictures though, and there's a certain nostalgic joy in again seeing the story unfold but in a different manner. Roll on part 2 - bring on the Joker and Superman...

Quite funny that they chose Peter Weller to voice old Bruce / Batman. I'm sure that the book influenced Robocop (dispassionate and violent treatment of criminals, the aforementioned news footage and one particular scene involving a wall breaking and a gunman being pulled through it backwards, for example), and Miller has also been involved in that franchise in various guises. And now, the original Robocop is playing one of his literary ancestors!

The Grey

I actually enjoyed this even though i didn't think i would . The other characters could of been stronger to compliment Neeson more but overall it kept my attention and given the ending there could be a sequel

Life of Pi. I must say I didn't get it. Sure it was beautiful, there were some very picturesque scenes etc., but it was 2 hours of someone on a boat with a tiger - there's only so much interest you can get from that. CGI tiger was very good, 3D was ok, but not that necessary I thought. Don't get the fuss over the young actor who played Pi either. Meh.

Bat Girl 2 agrees in the strongest possible terms. Mrs Bat (who hasn't seen the film) recommends the book. Smile

Django Unchained - superb. Not my favourite Tarantino movie but still brilliant all the same. Waltz is awesome, I think he could take any script and keep an audience immersed

The Campaign - seen a bit of hate on here for Anchorman so wouldn't expect anything from it if I were you haters out there. Personally though I didn't stop laughing throughout (same with anchorman)

the BBC series is one of the best things I've watched for some time. Absolutely awesome! The films were good too though, have only seen the second one once, should try to watch it again. You seen Elementary? (the American version of the BBC series)

Interesting. I'd not heard much about it and purposely didn't read up on it. Nicely paced and Sam Rockwell did a fine job. My kinda movie.

Anyone here seen 7 Pounds? I'm thinking of watching it on Netflix. It never looked interesting to me at the time it was released so now somebody will have to recommend it in order for me to sit down and watch it.

Just read that. I'm installing some apps on the xbox. I think that proves I can't multi-task. Better leave that to women.

I meant to say "Going to borrow the Pursuit of Happyness off a mate soon, have you seen that one."

Still laughing at what I orginally wrote though.

But what I wrote is really funny. Basically I'm asking if you seen me go to borrow 7 quid off a mate soon, and you're looking at me like I'm crazy. Laugh

Zero Dark Thirty

Just felt like an extended episode of Homeland but still good. Not sure it's Oscar worthy though but then again aslong as it deals with 'Pro America Propaganda' subject matter it doesn't have to be brilliant now does it.

7.5/10

Django Unchained.

Loved it. Totally a Tarantino film, which much blood, guts and generally great performances from the main protagonists. Christoph Waltz is marvellous.

And Samuel L "Mutha****ing" Jackson uses his favourite word within 15 seconds of being on screen...

8.5/10

Wreck it Ralph 3D

Trust me this is an animated film for everyone. Loved every minute of it, if you've ever played a video game or still do then this is for you. Simply brilliant and made for everyone.

10/10

Woman In Black - bit formulaic & silly ending but was sufficiently creepy throughout to warrant a watch.

Django I saw on Saturday night and it is easily the best film I have seen in the Cinema since the Dark Knight five years ago. DiCaprio, Waltz, Jackson and Fox all do a great job. Jackson in particular had me in stitches at times. I don't count myself as a fan of Tarantino really but must admit that I admire his ability to take such a taboo subject matter and provide so many laugh out loud monents whilst still retaining the seriousness of the theme

Les Mis- 8/10 as a movie, though the review would take pages. It's effectively a mashup of the musical and book and mostly works (I like the 'added' material and the acting/sing-acting is phenomenal). Most of the cast are spot and though his voice is mediocre (not as bad as many have made out though) I like Crowe's Javert. However, though he is a better singer technically than Crowe, I struggle with Jackman's Valjean. He has a good technical voice but his tone in the middle of his dynamic range and top of his full voice register, doubled with a rather strong vibrato, doesn't sound nice, I actually prefer Crowe's maligned voice for about 70% of the numbers. Great piano, good forte, terrible mezzo-f/p voice.

Plus Samantha Barks is hoooooooot. And this is the only production where I don't find the characters of Marius and Cosette and thus a Heart Full of Love unbelievably irritating. Trust me, IMO that is a big achievement. And Javert is nearly as badass as he is in the book.
