Away We Go (2009) - 8/10
Extremely funny Comedy / Drama based around a couple finding somewhere to settle down with there first child.
Tron: Legacy (2010) - 6/10
Great special effects, good flowing story, but came away feeling like the film failed to deliver. 3D didn't feel all that 3d at all. Nothing compared to avatar 3D.
Black Swan (2010) - 8/10
Thriller - ballet dancer Natalie Portman is fighting for the lead role in a new act. Won't really say much more without spoiling it, few twists and turns make it a somewhat artistic and excellent movie. 8.5/10.
The Social Network (2010) - 9/10
The Facebook story, based on mostly true events. Interesting and gripping from start to finish. Unravels the truth of how it came to be one of the biggest .com's and shows all of the players who played a part it making it what it is today.
Donnie Darko (2001) - 9/10
Simply a great movie. Awesome film when I first saw it wanted to watch it again to pick-up on the clues. I remember the website where you had a code to enter - was awesome at the time.Stay away from the extended DVD, as it just simply gives you all the answers and thus once answered I didn't want to watch it again. It's one of those Sci-fi / comedies with a unique script.
A Serbian Film (2010) - 7/10
Never in my life, have I seen anything a fucked up as this film. I live by fucked up cinema, I love it, Japanese, Korean, French you name it, if it's fucked up i've probably seen it. This film makes the likes of Irreversible, I stand alone, three extremes look like mere episodes of sesame street. I couldn't believe what I was watching, no wonder it's banned worldwide pracitcally. Actually has an OK plot and quite well directed. Watch if you dare, my missus now has a damaged soul!!!
Gladiator (2000) - 10/10
Watched this again last night for the first time in a few years. It's just simply amazing. The story, cast, special effects all 10/10 scores. This imo is the best acting performance Russell Crowe has ever pulled off, I don't think he will ever top the greatness of Maximum Meridius. 10/10.
Unthinkable (2010) - 7/10
Completely missed this film until reading about it a few days ago. As mike mentioned like a longer episode of 24. Samuel L Jackson is one Bad ass interrogator, Carrie-Anne Moss plays the more social interrogator and yeah basically it's an interrogation movie with a not so Hollywood ending.
Centurion (2010) - 7/10
Set in Britain near the border of Hadrian's wall (between Scotland and England) around 117 A.D. Essentially about a Roman soldier that gets lost behind the picts enemy lines and the search and rescue team that go to collect him. Few surprises and plenty of violence.
Salt (2010) - 6/10
Not a bad film, but not great either. More over the top senseless action in parts with a fair few twists along the way. Oh and Angelina's moist box ....
Jerusalema (2008) - 7/10
Decent south african gangster film. Shows the rise to criminal fame of a hoodlum. Based on a true story.
The Other Guys (2010) - 7/10
Will Ferrell and Mark Wahlberg star as partners in this new comedy satire based in the New York Police force. Funny as fuck throughout, personally think it's one of Ferrells best. "Gators bitches better be wearing jimmys" haha.
[Rec] (2007) - 7/10
Real eye opener of a horror film, shot very "blair witch" style. Chilling and tense pretty much from start to finish. Watch this and don't for god's name watch that shight english remake "Quarantine".
[Rec] 2 (2009) - 6/10
Thought when this was announced it would be shight, but honestly felt it nearly matched the first. Really good relatively low budget horror film. Some "nail biting" moments. Definitely gonna be a third, let's just hope they get out of the apartment block next time :).
Dear John (2010) - 1/10
Can't believe my bird roped me into watching this. Dramatic Romantic shight of the highest level.
Inception (2010) - 9/10
Christopher Nolan definitely has done it again and made another exceptional movie. The concept of the film is based around the ability to enter dream worlds and sync up with other people. It's pulled off very well. The only downside I would say is the plot was a little over complicated, and yet very simple. It wasn't one bit hard to follow - I was hoping for a film with plenty of questions at the end like Memento. 9.5/10 New liverpool IMAX is shight btw, compared to IMAX it's absolute garbage.
The Book Of Eli (2010) - 7/10
Thought this was rather good film set in the world after a nuclear war. Really reminded me of fallout and had a similar feel to the game. Some good violence and has a bit of a twist in it which I thought was a little rediculous tbh.
True Story and a very decent adaptation of the book, thought it was a thoroughly depressing film , but very good cinematography made this film into a great experience. Imagine being completely paralysed except for the ability to move one eye and blink and this is used as a portal to communicate via a hospital carer. This will be a film I will never watch again but will ultimately stick in my mind for years to come.
Hot Tub Time Machine (2010) - 7/10
"Four guy friends, all of them bored with their adult lives, travel back to their respective 80s heydays thanks to a time-bending hot tub". Has some interesting time travel elements, guaranteed to have you pissing yaself by the end.
Four Lions (2010) - 8/10
Chris Morris's (Jam, Brass eye) latest venture. A comedy / drama based around 4 British Muslims that plan a suicide bombing act. For me it was a barrel of laughs throughout, some amazing one liners that had the audience in hysterics. Quite dramatic and serious in parts and really makes you wonder if this is what suicide bombers are like. Make sure you watch through the bits with the credits at the end.
