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.

Alice in Wonderland
Really happy Tim Burton picked this one up!!
Alice in Wonderland
over 8 years ago

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..

Alice in Wonderland
Mad cap Disney action
Alice in Wonderland
over 8 years ago

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!!!!!

Silent Hill: Revelation

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

Minority Report
SCI FI Gasmssssss
Minority Report
over 8 years ago

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

Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
all a Star Wars fan wants
Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith
over 8 years ago

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.

The Passion of the Christ

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

Ghost
Woooaaaaa myyyy Daaarrrlllliiinngggg....
Ghost
over 8 years ago

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.

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!!

Philadelphia
over 8 years ago

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!

Titanic
over 8 years ago

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

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.

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.

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

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
over 8 years ago

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!

Pulp Fiction

Pulp Fiction
over 8 years ago

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.

over 8 years ago

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.

Black Swan
something a little different
Black Swan
over 8 years ago

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).

Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back
over 8 years ago

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

Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope
over 8 years ago

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.

House of Flying Daggers
Bruce Lee meets Romeo and Juliet
House of Flying Daggers
over 8 years ago

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.

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

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.

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.

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

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.

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!!

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!!

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
