    The Alan Partridge film.

    Thought it was very funny.

    The Tourist - a bit hitchocky, quite good really... Angelina Jolie looks like Lady Penelope in it.
    A sig-nat-eur? What am I meant to use this for ffs?! Is this thing recording?

    Pacific Rim - which had sooo much potential and just didn't quite live up to it..

    Word War Z - which was pretty cool in places.. but didn't have quite enough killing going on..

    in fact... I think most of the "epic" movies I've seen in the last few years have failed to live up to the hype..

    Battleship etc..

    play every note as if it were your first

    Strippers vs Werewolves

    Much better than expected. Still awful, but enjoyably awful.

  • Iron Man 3

    Better than 2, not better than 3. I like the idea of Iron Man movies more than I actually like them, I think. The twist, which I wont go into for obvious reasons, was too obvious, but a good effort. 

    Overall I'd give it 7/10


    2001: A Space Odyssey
    First time watching the bluray on a big TV with 5.1 sound. Wonderful. Still ridiculously odd, but soooo amazing to look at and listen to. A proper classic for good reason.

    The "Abbey Road" of sci-fi movies?

    Just caught Elysium. Not a patch on the director's previous film, District 9. It was an obvious plot, which reminded me very much of Ben Bova's 1978 novel "Colony". Matt Damon is always good value for money but the rest of the film was clichéd cardboard rubbish. Disappointed as the premise could have been the cornerstone of an interesting and thoughtful movie, which is the whole point of science fiction.

    Watched my first film in about a year tonight:  Nightmare Alley. 

    I don't really do films but I'm not gigging and it feels really weird and I had this on DVD.  Anyway, Nightmare Alley wasn't all that but it was made in 1947 and cinematic conventions have changed since then.  It did have one good moment in it as the stage mentalist begins his psychic scam by "seeing" the dead daughter of a woman in the audience.

    Jack Reacher, last night.   Never read the books so had no background to the character which i know for some caused them a problem having Tom cruise as the lead.  Didn't spoil it for me, thought it was very good.

    I watched it just wanting to enjoy the film (I have read all the books).
    I thought that Reacher's lack of height seemed to be an advantage when he was chucking people over his shoulder.

    The Look of Love (Paul Raymond biopic) - Just OK. Period London is nicely done.

    A movie I want to see: The documentary (just out on Dvd) about Neal Schon of Journey looking for a new singer for the band and finding one (in the Philippines) on Youtube.

    Koyaanisqatsi, on DVD.

    Hadn't seen it for about 25 years... back then it seemed hypnotic and powerful. This time it seemed dated and pretentious. (And not just because a lot of the images are so clearly from the late 70s/early 80s.) Maybe the small screen doesn't do it justice, but I don't think it's just that.

    I watched Finding Nemo in Bluray the other day... It's stunning...

    I also watched and enjoyed Shoot 'em Up - a wonderously over-the-top and cheesy action film.  It's the sort of mindless action film Arnie would have done in the mid-80s - but with Clive Owen doing his pan-atlantic accent.

    Not a movie but I watched Tom Dowd and the language of music on Netflix.  Highly recommended.

    Cockneys Vs Zombies  typical zombie fillum, entertaining if you like zombie films, but set in east London, rather than LA/New York etc

     

    The West ham/Millwall hooligan zombie "fight" is entertaining for the few seconds it lasts.

    "Now you see me" - Preposterous from beginning to end, even if you're a fan of Dynamo (the magician).
    My advice: don't see it.

    Strippers vs. Werewolfs.  1/10

     

    how can film with a title that promises sooooo much be sooooo bad. Really really awful. Even the hotties prancing around in suspenders and high heels couldn't save it. Though of course I'll be watching it again.

    I thought it was very enjoyable! Not very deep or believable but a strong cast, good plot and well paced.
    All practice and no theory

  • Alan Partridge Alpha Papa - loved it

    Pacific Rim - was exactly as stupid as I thought it would be

    Elysium - after really enjoying District 9 I was quite disappointed by this one. And what is going on with Jodie Foster's ADR?!

     

    I just signed up for netflix so watched The Hobbit and despite all the average reviews I fully enjoyd it and will definitely be seeing the next one in the cinema.

    If your son is fairly young he might be able to suspend his belief for the whole movie but wouldn't have understood much of it.
    If he's a bit grown up he might understand most of it but will laugh at what he's supposed to accept as facts. :)

    P.S: if his name is dafuzz he'll find it very enjoyable (even if shallow and unbelievable). :D

    Unknown. Like "Taken" but with spies n stuff. It was ok. Liam Neeson just about saves it from being completely crap.

    I enjoyed the book, and the film is fantastic. Recommended :)

    Agreed. Probably the best thing Jake Gyllenhall has done.

    the 17 year old son. His pleasure in watching tv or film is to find fault so he might enjoy it then.
