I wasn’t expecting this to blow me away, and I wasn’t let down. Probably the best story of any Superman film (although not hard), but in the end just as forgettable. I’m sure fans will like it, but for me it was alright at the time... but I wont be bothered if I never see it again.
Easily the best comedy so far this year. Had me in barrel laughs, at points the comedy is relentless. The advert doesn’t do it justice, to be fair the probably couldn’t put the best parts on them. I’ll watch this over and over again for sure. Enjoy.
The first thing you need to know about Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland is that despite its title implying that it is a new adaptation of Lewis Carroll’s much-loved 19th century novels Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass, it is in fact a sequel. If you have never thought about reading these titles you should, for me they are a little like Shakespeare (a necessity of the English language). In Burton’s film Alice is now a 19-year-old girl who has forgotten about her childhood journey into Underland (she misheard it as ‘Wonderland’) and once more takes a trip down the rabbit-hole after ducking out on an engagement proposal that has been carefully arranged for her. Having now returned to the magical world that she thought was something she dreamt, Alice is given the mission of saving the Underland inhabitants from the tyrannical rule of the Red Queen. Perhaps this should have been called something like Return to Wonderland or Wonderland III: Wonder Harder!! Excellent costume and imagination to bring the characters to life, the red queen reminds me of Queenie from Black Adder. I almost forgot... Johnny Deep steels the show... again..
For a lot of people this is either one of the best Disney movies or one of the worst. There is about 40 animated Disney movies and my personal favourite will always be the mad world of Wonderland. I don't actually know why but to me this is what i always thought about as a child, a mad world where simply nothing made sense. It goes like dynamite at only seventy two minutes and in that they have an array of entertaining characters and a shed load of entertaining songs. To me it is the genius of Disney creating an entertaining look at a child's world. I think it is because of the Jungle Book that this is not as popular as some of the Disney Classics but you can't help but smile when you watch the Queen of hearts and the Mad Hatter being their own creative self's in the wonder of this amazingly clever gem
My favorite game adaptation with ease. Scary and freaky, its a horror that will have your cringing and hiding behind a duvet. Surprisingly impressive debut movie from the silent hill chain. Unfortunately the second movie is an embarrassment, which taints the brilliance of the first. Well worth a watch... but not on your own!!!!!
Mediocre effort even by the standards of video game adaptations, Silent Hill: Revelation 3D features weak characters and an incomprehensible plot with a shortage of scares. This one left me very much disappointed as a fan of the games. The first movie was brilliant... how did they mess this one up so badly.. even 3D doesn’t save it.. If you liked the first don’t watch this one, it will taint your view
Widely regarded as one of the most influential sci-fi writers of all time, the late Philip K. Dick (*Insert Despicable me giggle here) penned a surplus o thought provoking and accessible tales of futuristic societies, something that Hollywood has tapped into numerous times. One of the better Dick (*Insert Despicable Me giggle here) adaptations is Steven Spielberg's Minority Report, a star-heavy blockbuster that doesn't skimp out on intelligence or progressive visuals.
Tom Cruise leads this action/thriller where in the future police can arrest criminals before they ever commit any offenses!! operating as the thought police (and I thought bouncers where bad), the coppers have ways of catching potential deviants in the act of mental deliberation!!
The best moments in Minority Report show the officers crashing through ceilings unannounced and apprehending people who haven't done anything wrong. Imagine armed enforcers smashing through the walls of your living room every time you dream up another way of killing Robin Van Persi (Yes, I am an Arsenal Fan... yes I am bitter) unpleasant.. Right!!
Exceptional Sci fi stuff
After Episode one and two had been slated so hard by the media, it was fair to say people where thinking the worst of Three before it even came out. This is what this trilogy is all about, Anakin turning to the dark side and becoming the most infamous villain in cinematic history. They Delivered. Watching Anakin have his Vader suit fitted is arguably the best star wars moment of the new trilogy, and the scrap that went off prior to that with Obi-wan is unrivalled.... not to mention the Emperors and Yoda’s dule! One Laughable bit of acting from Ewan aside (I’ve seen him killing ... youglings) he really nails Obi-wan for me in this instalment. If I could change two things about this trilogy it would be to remove Jar Jar Binks and not to have Samuel L Jackson in the movies. And I was disappointed how easily Palpertine dispensed of the Jedi masters who came to arrest him... other than that... this is a gem for any Star Wars fan.
Mel Gibson Directs a movie that outraged the Church so much they tried to ban it. Whatever you think about religion and Jesus, this is actually worth a watch. A graphic movie that offers an insight into crucifixion in a time before iphones. The religious stuff gets in the way a bit.. but that’s what the movies about, so no complaints. I don’t see the need for it to be in Latin... subtitles really not needed for this. Worth a watch once, but never again
For some reason when this came out the Church kicked off... I found a snip it online of some of the guff they started spinning :
"Ghost" is a very engaging film. It presents a view of the after-life which is a mixture of fact and fancy. When compared to the Orthodox understanding of what happens to a soul when separated from the body, there are a number of elements in the film which are accurate and a number which are false. These elements in and of themselves pose no great problem for a believer. What is problematic is the overall thrust of the film.
Always worth a chuckle when a religious groups start imposing views on a fictional movie!
Massive love story that women still love today... bit soppy for me but I certainly see the appeal. The pottery wheel scene is one of the best known love scenes around and for that I guess this is a classic.
Shoddy horror with some awful acting... about as scary as newborn baby duckling. I actually hat this with a passion
A father has a mid life crisis in suburban America and negates as much responsibility as possible. A little bit of a strange feel to this one but your soon engrossed in the lead character. The job application tickles me every time “what are you looking for in this roll?” “the least amount of responsibility as possible” provide some memorable comedy moments. Not for everyone this, but a decent enough watch if you fancy something a little different!!
A man with AIDS is fired by a conservative law firm because of his condition, he hires a homophobic small time lawyer as the only willing advocate for a wrongful dismissal suit. Tom Hanks excels in every role and he really is mesmeric along side co-star Denzel Washington. Touching on a Taboo subject of the 80’s this helped highlight others ignorance and dogmatic views. The Scene with Tom Hanks when he is listening to the opera track is probably the best scene he has ever done. An excellent movie, but I can see this wouldn’t be to everyone’s liking!
A seventeen-year-old aristocrat (Kate Winslet), expecting to be married to a member of royality by her mother, falls in love with a kind but poor artist (Leo DiCaprio) aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic!! I remember there being a lot of emphasis on the CGI when this came out, at the time is was a wonder on the big screen and it still holds it’s own now. This Tragic love story rivals that of Romeo and Juliet bringing tears to many an audience. This deserves all the plaudits, Oscar’s and awards it receives, a true master piece of the 90’s. Celine Dion’s single my Heart goes on was at number one for too long though... A bucket list film in every sense
This classic was made in 1939 and was one of the first movies ever made in Technicolor! This is without a doubt a bucket list movie. Maybe the most loved movie by all generations, it’s warm fluffiness will soon have you humming ‘follow the yeallow brick road’ or Screeching ‘somewhere over the rainbow’ in no time. In 200 years time people will still be watching this movie.
Honest comedy about a married couple who are turning 40. Funny in parts, and the story is ok. Watchable on a Sunday afternoon with the Mrs... but you’ll forget you watched it by the next day
I think it’s safe to say Zombie movies have been done to death, so I was sceptical about this even with Brad Pitt as the lead. These zombies take no prisoners, fast moving and relentless they tear the place up in quick time! Some of the filming at the start is a little annoying, shaky cam is not my thing... but that soon changes when they manage to get off the street. Jumpy throughout and some impressive zombies make for a very good film.
A wonderful Christmas tale about a boy and a snow man. The simplicity of this makes it work, wispy sketches roll into one another whilst a classical orchestra and choir boy do the rest . On every Christmas eve without fail... a short, but I had to rate it this bucket list film!
THE reason I was unable to go in the sea as a child.. in fact getting me into a swimming pool was just as hard. This chain of movies probably hasn’t helped the plight of this highly evolved predator, but what a movie. I think if you look up the term Blockbuster in the dictionary this movie will be the description. Once this was a chilling thrill / horror.. now it’s rather amusing!
Poor mans dirty dancing – thought this was going to be good, it wasn’t. Not for me this one
Loved this as a teenager! It’s dated now but it still brings a smile to my face when I watch it. Bill.. to Neo.. now that’s a big leap! Fun back then, not so much now... but still enjoyable!
It’s so bad it’s watchable! Not sure how to rate this one... it wasn’t Big when it came out, although the cartoon was one of the best of it’s time. Probably better off sticking on the transformers movie!
The first film I saw at the cinema!! To this day it’s still as magical and fun for children, I guess that’s the magic of Disney, timeless. If only more children’s movies where made in cartoon, a dying art form unfortunately. Childhood classic and should be on a bucket list!
Fantastic movie if you like the clubbing culture, heart warming at the end and actually bought tears to my eyes. One of those movies you’ll watch time and time again... on a Sunday... with a come down...
Clubbers movie based on the 90’s trance scene. Follow a group of friends as they embark on another drug filled weekend. Some funny moments and even funnier if you can relate to the film. Bit of a cult classic, to this day people still shout ‘I Said... NICE ONE BROTHER’.
Have you ever tried to sing the Star Wars theme tune into Indiana Jones and then into to Superman tune and back?? Impossible!! Classic film for the whole family, and still as enjoyable all these years on. I’d love to see a Lara Croft V Indian Jones movie... both going after the same relic or something!!!
I am a pussy when it comes to this type of movie. Psychological supernatural stuff wigs me right out. Scary enough if you like this sort of thing... not my cup of tea though
Everything about this film is alright, average, middle of the road. CGi, it’s alright, didn’t break any barriers. Acting, it’s alright, nothing new or our out standing from the Smiths. Story line, it’s alright bit cheesy. I’m not sure if I was disappointed or not, it was ok as movies go, bit like I am legend – could have been better.
They need to stop with these..each one brings a new low.
If i didn’t know better I’d say Scorsese has known or knows gangsters. His insight to the life style is awesome and he really delivers a brutal film. A must see if you like gangster movies. I hate Sharron stone, but with that aside it has an all star cast (most of which where in Goodfellas). It’s one of those movies where you wish you was ‘that guy’ bucket list film.
Great entertainment for the whole family. I love this movie and would recommend it to anyone. Not what you expect, and very funny in places. Hope you enjoy this as much as me
Set in ancient Rome, Russell Crow is stripped of his life and forced to fight as a gladiator. Some fantastic sets and costume make you forget about the fire extinguishers and watches you see throughout the movie (seriously, someone needed sacking for the errors in this movie). Although some of the acting is a little corny, the story has enough about it to captivate you. Good fun and a little bit moving at times.
This one really pushed the boundaries of Si Fi. If you watch this movie today the only thing out of date is the music. I remember being to young the first time I watched this, it is a very slow movie but beautifully wrapped in futuristicness (think I just made that word up). For any Si fi fan this is an absolute must. Spoiler alert *** If you have seen this movie before, try watching it with the thought that Harrison Ford is also a ‘synthetic’. Bucket list film, and in my top ten
The follow up to the hugely successful alien movie decided to have a change of tact. This time instead of being hunted, they are hunting with a team of commandos. Not as suspenseful as the first movie, but as jumpy with far more action. Brilliant follow up.
Chilling space thriller! The tension in this movie has never really been replicated for me, and thus is in my top ten of all time. The aliens couldn’t be more vicious, and adding acidic blood was a master stroke! Various spin offs came from the first movie, but for me it’s only about alien or aliens. Bucket list movie, still as good today.
As a fan this really pushed all the right buttons. Action packed from start to finish it ends with a flurry. With a massive revelation that (for some) you couldn’t see coming, it’s possibly the best movie. It’s a shame we have run out of books to screen.. but I have a feeling this won’t be the last we here from Harry Potters world!
Part one of the Deathly Hallows is the darkest movie of them all. Gone are the little kids we grew accustomed, these are young adults mean business. Setting up part two is the name of the game here, watch the others leading up to this first.
The final instalment provided more of the same, however this one went on a little longer than needed. I felt they didn’t need to drag the ending out so much, 10 mins would have been enough.. not 30 mins. I think this one was more for the hardcore fans, which I welcome, far to often movies sell out and ruin things. Looking forward to watching these on the Big screen in 3D one day!
Following up the first instalment Frodo continues his perilous journey through middle earth. Once again the scale of this movie is breathtaking. I just love the artistry with the costumes, and the sets are outstanding. Some impressive CGI in this one too.
Amazing fantasy adventure that I found better than the book!!! The film eliminates the drivel the author was so instant on, and yet captures all the details with extraordinary sets and costume. The word Epic was invented for such movies. If you like Elves Dwarfs and Wizards... this is the movie of all moives!
agreed - utter pony
There was no bigger movie when I was in the playground at school. Everyone had the sticker book, and swapsies was the name of the game. Not many movies prior to this had attempted to integrate cartoons with real people on screen, it worked very well. Lovable Characters throughout this is a good old fashioned classic – begs the question why a sequel was never done?? Kids will still love this today... might rent this out now!!
Will Ferrell and co go mental on screen. I’m not sure there was actually a script for this, I’m guessing they adlibbed the majority of it. Hilarity ensues as always with Will Ferrell at the helm. If you like over acting and stupidity with cutting edge comedy, this is for you! sunday afternoon with a pint!
I went to watch this a second time in the cinema, it was that good. If you like family guy’s humour this will tickle you. good cast, very good script, hours of fun!!
A bucket list film for me!!!
This is where it all happens, it’s taken four or five movies to get to this point. Dark times ahead for Potter and co. Personally my fav out of all of them. Again it adds the right amount of comedy to the action and the plot is flying along. Best of the lot!
The first instalment of Harry Potter is reasonable, although a little light hearted for me (unlike the half blood price). If your going to watch the Potters then it’s a must see, be prepared to invest some hours watching all 7? Movies! The worst out of the lot, but still watchable
Not sure I agree with Andy’s comment above. The Scene when the dog dies bought a lump to my throat. This film’s CGI was lacking compared to other movies out at the same time. Good concept, although not one of his best fims
If you like the first and second movie... don’t bother watching this one... woeful plot (if you can call it that) & acting. Avoid like scabies
Alex Garland’s the beach is still one of my favourite books. The transformation to screen was always going to be tricky, but it was better than expected. It’s not often I buy a sound track to a movie, with artists like Moby, Faithless and the All Saints (rubbing my hands on my knees) it also makes for a good purchase. Worth a watch, but be warned you will end up booking a holiday shortly after!!
Touring his much acclaimed Dangerous album at the peak of his career, MJ does what he does best. This will send shivers down your spine, and for those younger ones who missed the King of Pop, it offers a great glimpse into his genius. Fantastic from start to finish.
A very interesting fly on the wall documentary following the worlds number one DJ, Armin Van Buuren. Although this is still only available in Dutch, you can understand the majority of what is going on. Access all areas and see what it’s really like for the modern day rock star. (check out the super slow mo of yours truly)
Imagine, Armin’s first ‘Armin only’ night taking all the tracks from the album and performing them live. One unforgettable night captured on DVD. A must for all trance lovers
Armin unleashes footage of his Mirage tour. One for trance lovers only. Some excellent productions and live performances. Also spotted myself in the crowd
Another one that always seems to be on around Easter. Grew up with this one, in fact my Dad wanted to call me Spartacus when I was born, luckily my mother stepped in and prevented me from being bullied. I’m told that for the time the graphics where cutting edge, and it still holds a majestic feel to it. Enjoyable, once a year!!
Cool fantasy film (more for lads perhaps) set in ancient Greece, Sparta is threatened by an Evil oppressor. Follow the story of King Leonidas as he takes a small platoon into battle to face hordes of villains. Loads of super slow mo battle scenes set against an almost graphic novel back drop. Good film and looking forward tot he sequel
I classic for some... but not me. The plot is ok, the acting is poor, it’s slower than the ride in Florida and you just want it to end (the ride and the film). Kids may still like it, but I bet they would rather watch Ben 10.
One of Arnies first films (if not the first) and boy is he Big! This time Arnie has a sword as his weapon of choice, meeting other barbarians along his path he sets out to avenge his murdered mother... as you do. A classic in the same realm as predator and Commando.
Over the top, silly, outrageous fun from Mike Myers and co. By far the best of the three movies. Goldmember is Mike Myers best film to date in my opinion, roll on number four!!!
The Ultimate Arnie movie. Story : Daughter is kidnapped and he goes mental in his quest to get her back. If you like your movies 80’s, then this is the one. Arnie’s early movies sit proudly in m collection.. I hope you does a few more in his life time! if you not a fan of Arnie... don't wacth this
Probably the most anticipated film in cinematic history. This film was off the pulse of what star wars fans wanted. Although it boasted a decent lightsaber fight, it also boasted the worst character to grace the star wars world in Jar Jar Binks. Jar Jar aside, it was good to see star wars back on the big screen and when it came back round in 3D, the pod racing was wkd. If you view this as one small piece to the whole picture, you won’t go wrong.
Eddie Murphy when he was good! As with most 80’s movies of this type, the plot is weak. Cops chasing bad guys made interesting by Murphy’s antics. Decent sound track and fun at the time. Worth a watch if it’s on TV late at night
A firm staple of any 80’s child, Ghostbusters was HUGE. Dunnnanaanaanernaaa dunnnaannnnanerrrnanaa Ghostbusters!!! Spinning a sequel it begs the question when a new 3D effort will come out. A Random bucket list movie, but none the less.... it’s on the list!
Funky idea from Spielberg (think it was one of his), and another blockbuster of its time. A mystical creature that can’t eat passed a certain time (always wondered about time zones... or what time it could start eating again?!?!?) else it would turn into a gremlin... Critter mayhem that at the time was quite scary. Good old 80’s nonsense
Fasted passed Kung Fu comedy capper. Personally I can’t stand Jack black, it’s only his voice in this film though. Watching cartoon characters have it Kung Fu Styleeeeee is awesome... kids (and BIG kids) will love it. Well worth a watch on a Sunday afternoon
Madagascar cashing in and running out of ideas. Could have been a whole lot better, tried to introduce some new characters – failed. The penguins offered the most comedy. Disappointing considering one and two where so good!
Like most I don’t go out of my way to watch the show, but if it’s on a watch it. I don’t think they should have bothered making a movie. some funny moment, but not enough... thirty mins of Simpsons is enough... over an hour zzz zzz zzz. One for hardcore fans
MJ in his prime. Has any other music artist made a movie based around a load of there hits?? This for all you may think of the King of pop, was and still is ground breaking (as you would come to expect from him). If you liked the Bad album then you should watch this if you haven’t already. The King maybe be dead, but the legacy lives on.
Paranormal activity has that Blair Witch feel about it. It’s watchable, but mainly as I found common ground with the lead male. Overrated spook creating spin offs. It’s about as scary as sticking the news on.
The Hunger Games trilogy made for a very compelling read. I always worry how these things will translate, and although it is a fairly decent effort it falls some way short of expectation. Books are seldom beaten by screen adaptations and this is no exception to that rule. I’d recommend read the book first, before watching the movie.
An 8 for the book and move combo.... 7 only for the movie!
This is in my top three for sure. Quentin Tarantino delivers arguable his best movie along with an all star cast. This was the movie that put Samuel L Jackson on the map, I very fine performance indeed. John Travolta also had a welcome boost from this film, and the duo play the most lovable gangsters of the 90’s. The scripting between Travolta and Jackson will compel you to rewind and view again and again. This movie slots together like a jigsaw and each scene tells it’s own little story contributing to the larger picture. Tarantino’s finest master stoke. A bucket list movie.
This is one of those movies that is always on over Christmas. For me this isn’t good enough to be a classic, but something about it has made it stand the test of time. I do like a good bit of CGI, I just think kids are missing out with it. Look at how successful the Muppets and sesame street where. This movie has those good old fashion costumes and puppets, still great a great fantasy movie (with some mild peril) for kids.
An interesting view into the psychotic world of a ballet dancer who is obsessed with the lead role in black Swan. I don’t now why I am surprised, Portman’s ballet performance is fantastic. As always transferring ballet to screen is seldom an easy task, this film offers just the right mix of cool young fun with contemporary art. Well worth a watch (even if it’s only to see Natalie Portman & Mila Kunis get it on).
Decent enough film delving into the realms of time travel and the knock on effects of messing with it! Produced sequels that I haven’t seen. Worth a watch if nothing else is on.
How do you follow up the best film ever made in history? Simple, you pen the second best film ever in history. When Empire hit the big Screen people where literally camping outside of cinemas, the most anticipated film of all time shook the world with closely guard script and the mother (or father) of all twists. The clues in the tittle, this movie is darker than a New hope. Some star wars fans will tell you this is the best movie.. it’s hard to argue with them, not a lot in it
Lets put it to the vote!
Click the ‘like post’ button if you think it is better and not like post if you think it is worse!!
It’s fair to say I have watched this movie over a 100 times. Without doubt the best Sci Fi movie in history. The Star Wars brand has been dominating the global markets since ‘oh before you was born’, and continues to take in generations with various spin offs and new movies. Filmed in barns with essentially air-fix models they produced an extraordinary film light years ahead of it’s time. In life you have a few people that have never seen Star Wars, and then everyone else.
Number one bucket list movie
Number one film of all time
Extremely artistic movie in terms of colour and set production. You never associate martial arts films with tragic love stories, this one rivals Romeo and Juliet. Set in ancient China, a young sheriff looks to infiltrate a mysterious terrorist group known as the house of daggers. One of the strangest love triangles ever screened. The martial arts are phenomenal, however they do occasionally do the ‘floating in the air’ stuff that the Chinese seem to love. Fast subtitles, not one to watch after a beer!!
Visually this film is stunning on the big screen. It’ going to be interesting watching this back in 2D as I doubt it will hold my attention. In a nut shell they stole the idea from Big Fish, changed the story and chucked in some amazing visuals. I can see why it was nominated for so many awards, but I won’t be rushing out to pick up the Blue ray
You have to see this to believe it – any movie called Kung Fu Flid that has the slogan ‘unarmed and dangerous’, & ‘Bruce Lee with flippers’ is a must see. Low budget British martial arts movie. Terrible acting, dodgy plot.. awful script – it couldn’t get any better.
Love it. Love it. Love it. Whenever I contract man flu I whack this film on (after Star wars, obviously). This is one of those movies that slid under the radar a little. Great movie for kids (or big kids), oh the 80’s.... such a simple time.
Bucket list movie
I don’t get it – it’s alright, i never want to watch it again though. One for the ladies maybe? go and play pool downt he pub instead
I named my first Dog Willow after Warwick Davis’s character. The Definition of Willow is A machine with revolving spikes used for cleaning cotton, or a tree. My Japanese Akita was none of the former. A movie in the same realm as Labyrinth, this cult classic whisks you off on a majestic journey through mystical lands and creatures. They simply do not make movies like this anymore, for all CGI is worth at times I just want to see a puppet. As our reluctant dwarf sets off to protect a special baby (never thought I’d scribe that phrase) you fall in love with his grumpy demeanour.
Bucket list film. Top marks
Martin Scorsese, enough said? Brillianty slick movie with an all star cast, this modern day mobster movie stands apart from most. Intersting perfomances from Leonardo Dicaprio & Jack Nicholson offer a differnt style than you’re used too. Some great twists and with an ending you can not predict this makes for a great watch.
Old school isn’t the word! Any movie that kicks off with a Public enemy tune pumping in the back ground gets my vote. Two hip hop college kids (Kid and play) end up having the party of all parties. keep 8 mile, this movie has the original rap battle shizzzzle going DOOOOOOOOOWWWWWNNNN. This black American comedy was a staple through my teens, and yes I did want that afro!!!
Not really a film you need to see at the cinema, and if you haven’t already been you probably won’t get to as this film is understated. Remember the first time you watched Goodfella’s, take that ‘wow this is cool’ feeling and multiply it a few times. One of America’s deadliest contract killers of all time tries to balance his ‘working’ life with his home life. Some seriously great acting will send chills down your spine, and the hero/villain (you decide) is just EPIC. Almost gave this a 10, but due to Ross (from friends) being in the movie I couldn’t do it.
A film very close to Spielberg’s heart Based on true events of world War two. This film hits home the atrocities the Nazi’s inflicted against the Jews. Hard hitting, factual drama with a genuine hero. This one really will bring you to tears.
Truly one of the greatest movies of all time, coupled with an amazing sound track. As a DJ I use the sound track every weekend, surprising how integral a movie can become in your life! More pelvic thrusts than a work out with Mr motivator, this film will have you swinging your hips and singing a long in no time. Come on admit it, you’ve tried to do the lift with your mates after a few jars!
Popular Rom Com with the ladies... for me though, utter garbage. I was forced to watch this... much better Rom Coms on the market.
As a proud owned of an adult size Buzz Lightyear outfit, it’s safe to say I am a fan. Tom Hanks takes the lead as woody, Andy’s best friend and favourite toy. Brilliant Brilliant Brillant film. If you haven’t seen this with your kids, give them up and report yourself for child abuse. They don’t get much better than this
Marvel going mental and giving it’s fan what they want... loads of Super hero’s all in one movie! Some brilliant comedy moments involving the Hulk, quick and witty and aimed at the fan base. Good film if you like that kinda thing
poor poor poor film. Your better off with Scream... could almost be the same film other than the story – what am I saying!! why do i have to give this a one star!!!!!
not even one to watch once - stick pins in your eyes instead and abvoid at all costs
Basically cowboys and Indians. One of the first 3D films to make you gasp, by far the best 3D movie of all time. The slight and subtle undertones of this movie are thought provoking, although you wont be thinking about that the first time you watch it. One of the most colourful films I have ever watched, just a shame Sigourney Weaver is in it for me. Bench mark movies in my life time – Star Wars, Titanic, Avatar.
A must see
Who knew that Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor could sing? This movie (if we assume all star wars films are just one) is in my top five of all time. A fresh idea making a musical with modern day music, tunes such as smells like teen spirit and like a Virgin will have you bopping along to this beautiful but tragic love story. A modern classic – don’t be shy, try the Moulin rouge!
Typifying the 80’s Cruise does what he does best: he’s a good pilot, but not the best pilot... a tragedy happens, he becomes the best pilot and wins the girl. This model fits most early cruise films i.e Days of Thunder : he’s a good racing driver, but not the best racing driver... a tragedy happens, he becomes the best racing driver and wins the girl. Classic love story, classic sound track, classic.
After the guff that was Iron man two, three was nearly served a curve ball. Gratefully though I was compelled be the hype and it didn’t disappoint. Plenty of Iron man stuff going on to keep the fans happy (after all this is his film). Good effects, story and acting make a well polished end to a trilogy (maybe). Like this, watch any other Marvel super hero movie
Tom Cruise rocking another SY FY movie (why have the Si Fi channel become dyslexic?). This one sits some place between the Matrix and Minority report, decent enough story with a few twists and turns (albeit a little predictable). Plenty of futuristic gadgets and imagination going on here. Best line of the year to so far ‘Fuck you Sally’.
Cool kids movie with a splash of adult humour thrown in. This one is aimed at the younger child, plenty of chasing and bashing of heads.. and yet still enjoyable. Father daughter story based around the ‘end of the world’. Good visuals, good story – Sunday afternoon with the kids sorted!
Fast passed action from the crew of the star ship Falcon. Building on the previous movie they delve deeper into Luke and Hans relationship (can’t bring myself to type sp*k and K*rk). I have to admit it, this film was brilliant on the big screen, the 3D added to the whole thing as apposed to being the thing (as with a few movies out recently). Plenty of frank exchanges with Han and Luke, this will have the Trekies purring like a hyper drive taking you from Tatooine to Coruscant. One of my top films this year
I remember the summer this came out on the big screen, I managed to get myself grounded for setting a field on fire, in fairness it wasn’t really my fault... I was trying to catch a pheasant and things got out of hand. The same can be said for the Goonies (less the pheasant). Spielberg (for me) was producing his best stuff back then, and this one is a firm classic. Be honest, you’ve seen this movie and you’ve made your fat friend do the truffle shuffle!! Epic fantasy kids stuff – enjoy.
Great comedy and very well written. Hilarity ensues as family dynamics cause mayhem at a family wedding. Well worth watching with a bottle of wine on a Sunday! Like this, try meet the Fockers.
Worst film I have seen this year. Avoid.
I felt mislead by the advert... the part where Leo is banging on about changing the future and messing with time!? No, just me? Having never seen the original I had no idea what to expect ‘old sport’, and much to my surprise I was taken on mystical love story that in my opinion dragged a little. That said, this made a great cinematic spectacle with the 3D setting it off. Amazing set productions and costumes, visually one of the best films of the year. Worth a watch, but watch out, it drags at times!!
Better alien abduction films on the scene that's for sure. I found at times i wanted this film to move on, and when a movie is an average 97 mins long that's not a good sign! saying all of that, if you like this type of thing its alright. My verdict, watch it with your mates when having a beer on a Friday night in (but don't pay for it)
I forgive you for thinking that this film looked stupid from the advert, maybe another over the top American bunch of garbage... as easily to forget as Margret thatchers death. Well, i was wrong, and on so many levels. This film has everything, a bit of over the top action, a brilliant story scripted as well as the next best film. Washington turns in a performance of the highest order as only he can. Not exactly a fast passed film, but nor does it need to be. A future classic for me, although no real benefit watching it on the Big screen. Enjoy!!
Good wholesome American comedy that pulls at the heart strings at times. Really enjoyable watch with some great moments that will make you spit you popcorn across the room. Son mother humor always has legs and this one runs a marathon in record time leaving you feeling good. Barbra Streisand pulls off a brilliant performance, and she will have you making comparisons to your mum and other mothers you know within moments. Sunday afternoon with a hangover. Oh, and Barbra Streisand pulls off a brilliant
3D in the cinema - Brilliant... at home on a Sunday afternoon, mmm I'm not so sure. It does well to pay homage to the original, whilst it is fluffy and the colors are vast and engaging, it just isn't good enough... Disney had a great opportunity here and i feel they missed it slightly. Enjoyable enough on a Sunday afternoon, and the kids will love it *Dads will love it also! 4 stars for 3D, 3 stars for 2D
This is an all time classic and a personal fav! Although dated now Jim Henson’s crew (Muppet's) coupled with George Lucas (Star Wars) unleash a wonderful fairy tale. David bowie turns in a great performance, the same can not be said for his tights! Classic cult childrens movie with plenty of feel good factor. If you Like this film then try Never ending story, or Willow
Is this the best sequel of all time or the worst?? This film is unrivalled in action (once it starts) – no other movie has an hour and a half of nonstop adrenaline action that includes some of the best car/bike chases in cinematic history, epic martial arts, and effects that at the time stood out way beyond the next best film. And yet it does not offer anything new that makes you think ‘WOW’, nor does it set up the final instalment for anything other than a diabolical ending! Mixed thoughts – but a certainly in my top ten of all time (ahead of the first matrix). Like this then try Oblivion or Minority report
!WARNING! THIS FILM WILL MAKE YOU BLUB. This film really pulls on your heart strings, and as a true story it certainly adds to the despair you feel for these people. Really moving and capped off we an excellent performance from Ewan McGregor. This might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but if your into amazing true life accounts then this is a must!
'As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster' A true modern gangsta classic. Gangstas doing gangsta stuff.... E P I C. Probably one of the best of all time and actually based on a true story. One of the coolest movies of its time, and still as popular today as it was 23 years ago. like this then try Pulp fiction - Reservoir Dogs - Casino
