Seven Psychopaths. Some good performances, but a bit of a mess. 6/10.

Let Me In 8/10 (Lovefilms) - It's about a young boy and his new love interest whom is not as she first appears. I really enjoyed it and really would recommend it.

Fear Island 5.5/10 (Lovefilms) - A group of teenagers getting killed off. I found it completely predictable which greatly ruined it. I think these sorts of stories have been done to death now so something 'more' is needed.

Shelter 6.5/10 (Lovefilms) - with Julie Ann Moore who plays a psychiatrist with a new patient and a rather unusual curse. It was entertaining enough.

Dredd 9/10 It's about a future world where crime is high and there are not many law enforcers who act as policemen, judges and executioner. This is about one particularly good law enforcer and a new rookie. Upon re-watching this at home, I still love it!

Dr. Who and the Daleks - 7/10 - very enjoyable and underrated film, yeah i know the doctor in this is a human but you know, i like peter cushing, the way ian Chesterton is portrayed in this is weird, he is a bit of a bumbling idiot in this one

The Woman In Black - Even though Daniel Radcliffe doesn't look old enough to be a lawyer and father of a four-year-old, I really enjoyed this. Eery, suspenseful and a good ending.

8/10

Amour - 8/10 - Trintignant deserved the Oscar nod as much as Emmanuelle Riva. Beautiful movie.

Les Miserables - 8/10 - Thoroughly enjoyed it but a bit long. Loved Anna Hathaway and Sam Banks. Still can't see the appeal of Eddie Redmayne...

Flight 10/10 The best film I've seen for a long time that doesn't rely on a stream of OTT-ness to engage you.

Underworld, Awakening. I liked it, although it lacked the darkness, and depth of others in the series. I still rate it 8/10 as was an enjoyable film.

Somers Town [2008]. Director Shane Meadows

8/10

Meadows followed up "This is England" with this low-budget, black & white, light-hearted feature, expanded from a short during production. Commissioned by Eurostar and filmed in the area of London adjacent to St Pancras, then undergoing development as the new rail link with Paris (there's a brief 8mm colour sequence shot in Paris at the end).

Les Misérables
Got to be honest, I hate musicals, the film was longer than a piece of string and I had no idea what the heck was going on – I had to read up on the plot when I got home haha… – but the casting was better than the piece of work I recently had on me arm… Visually it also looked impressive – the sets, costumes, directing, camera work and so on were all top stuff. There’s also some well known people acting their socks off and singing throughout and that unknown little girl that’s in the film is actually pretty good! As much as I love music and as well put together as it is, I cannot get over the fact that it’s a musical which doesn’t appeal to me (Mrs. White loved it though!) that being said it’s not a bad film, very well acted (or sung) and put together. Has to be said, Hugh Jackman can sing the clothes off a nun... To quote Homer Simpson: “brilliant! I have absolutely no idea what’s going on…..” 5.5/10 (mainly because I don’t like musicals. Everything else is good though)

Enchanted. Good, but wouldn't recommend it though.

Ted - 200 Farts & a car chase. Utterly woeful 1/10

Meant to watch it last night but got too late. Ended up flicking through to find the Confessions of Plumbers Mate & Driving Insructor on Movies 24. Dreadful films, as bad as you can get and the IMDB ratings of 2.5 /10 is generous, but was keeping an eye out for Robert Lindsay, Elaine Paige and Biggins.

The single one thing you take for granted when you watch a film & a British 70s tawdry sex comedy was the previous flick you've seen 24 hours earlier is that it's some sort of improvement. This had the unique achievement of being even worse.

It's just woeful IMO & I grew up through the 80s and loved them. The supposed jokes are futile, just farts, f*cks & wank1ng, characters uninteresting & little if any plot. Two or three scenes are so cringingly bad you wonder how they ever were even suggested.

Easily in the worst 10 of my 800+ ranked films and beneath Robin Askwith & his chums.

Dark Shadows (2012) - 8/10
Really fun. I've never seen the show it was based on, so I can't comment on how well it was adapted, but I love Tim Burton's style and I always enjoy his films.

Snow White and the Huntsman (2012) - 6.5/10
Entertaining. Well directed and (mostly) well acted, but the dialogue felt quite awkward in places. I really liked Charlize Theron's Evil Queen.

Gave Kristen Stewart a fair chance as I've only seen her as Bella (who is such an awfully written character), but I wasn't overly impressed. She was still quite bland, although she did better as "Action" Snow White than "Innocent" Snow White. Once again, I'm not sure if it was the one-dimensional writing that let her down, or if she's just not a great actress.

Shame about the affair, because if there is a sequel they've lost a pretty good director and kept an actress who's passable at best, IMO.

Seven Psychopaths - 7/10

Worth watching for the performances from Sam Rockwell and Christopher Walken alone.
