Iron Man 3…

Iron Man blew me away when I first saw it. Iron Man 2 was good, but not as good as the first. Iron Man 3 was better than Iron Man 2, but not as good as Iron Man or The Avengers movie, in my opinion. Don’t take this as a major criticism, because all of […]

Oblivion…

Just got back from watching Oblivion… I was a little bit reluctant about going to see it because the trailer looked awesome, which these days tends to mean the film is terrible. Fortunately that wasn’t the case here. The film was great. Visually fantastic, with a pretty good story. Why can’t we have a few […]

Django Unchained…

I’ve delayed watching Django Unchained for a few weeks, mostly because it is 3 hours long and I struggle to sit for that long in the cinema, no matter what film I’m watching! Let me start by saying I’m a big fan of Quentin Tarantino. He’s obviously a smart guy. I like the dialog in his […]

Bullet to the Head…

After boring myself to tears watching The Hobbit, I lost my cinema mojo for a while. I’ve struggled to motivate myself to get involved. Tonight I decided to give Bullet to the Head a shot ( ouch ) at revitalizing my cinema spirit and you know something? It did it! Stallone is a low grade hitman. His partner […]

The Hobbit: An Expectedly Boring Journey…

I’ve been delaying going to watch The Hobbit for a while because I knew it would leave me bored and with bed sores on my ass. I was with some friends the other day and they had watched the 3D HFR version and said it was cool. One of the guys said he would like […]

Skyfall…

While writing this I am singing the Skyfall theme in the style of a bad pub singer, kinda like Vic Reeves would do. I couldn’t face queuing and all that jazz during the opening weekend of Skyfall, so I went at lunchtime today instead. I’m an old git, so Sean Connery will always be the […]

Looper…

Looper is not, “This years The Matrix”, or whatever crap they put on those posters. It’s easy to be blasé now, but The Matrix was totally amazing when it came out, before they could ruin its legacy with the sequels… So now I’ve managed your expectations, it’s worth saying that Looper is a pretty decent film. […]

Resident Evil : Retribution…

What do I really want out of a Resident Evil movie? Milla Jovovich running around kicking ass. Lots of Zombies. It should be virtually indistinguishable from the other movies. With Resident Evil: Retribution, I guess 2/3 ain’t bad. I like the fact the previous 4 films are virtually interchangeable. My biggest criticism of this film is it does things […]

Total Recall…

I’ve just got back from watching the re-spin of Total Recall. I was a fan of the Arnold version, but that was 22 years ago (Wow!), so I though it was worth a watch to see what they had brought to the table. As you would expect, some bits are very similar, but there is […]

The Expendables 2…

I was dissapointed in The Expendables, but I hoped they would make another film and try to get it right this time. I’ve just got back from The Expendables 2 and I’m glad to say they got it completely right this time! If I’m honest, many of the elements of this film are the same as the […]
