Man Of Steel - Awfull, they had the flying dragons from avatar flying round and shooting ray-guns at the start, what???? Agent van Alden appearing as General Zod, didn't help the film. Rubbish/10.

The Lone Ranger- Aside from being a bit too long,i found my attention wavering occasionally, this was very enjoyable, nice touches of humor throughout and a wonderful finale, money well spent.
A diddddle diddle diddddle diddle diddddle diddle did dint 8/10.

Watched the recent "Rambo" flick. Had never seen it before today, but I thought it was alot of fun. Lots of action and over-the-top sequences.

Is it still playing? My my, what a long runner....

Quatermass 2

Ah - British science fiction cinema at its finest. A whip-smart script with some lovely eerie touches, this is the favourite of the hugely commendable Quatermass trio. 10/10

Escape from Tomorrow

Latest film festival 'sensation' or whatever. A newly-fired family man wants one last good day at Disneyland, but his day falls apart amidst hallucinations and poss. mental breakdown.

Shot on the sly at Disneyland itself, the initial intrigue gives way to too much wilfully vague weirdness that stretches a thin idea further than it can bear. A shame, as the film is at its best when it's at its most focused (the ex-princess, for instance), and the promising theme of real fears in a 'real' fantasyland runs throughout. Also letting it down is the harsh B/W photography which is often messy and indistinct. Some interesting images emerge, but it's not the visual treat the makers perhaps intended.

What works best is the acting. A believable everyman, wife & kids - they are that tetchy family in front of you in the queue. They deserved something a bit more defined and decisive.

Fans of Berbarian Sound Studio (a similar sort of thing) could well enjoy this, but, like BSS, it left this viewer somewhat underwhelmed. 5.5/10

The Bad News Bears (1976)

Terrific baseball film with Walter Mathau coaching a team of inept, foul mouth kids.

Chasing Ice

For such a grand and important topic this documentary managed to feel pretty slight. It was still good though and had some fantastic pictures.

The Big Year [2011]. Director: David Frankel

Light-hearted drama about bird-watching obsessives.

Awaydays - 6-7/10.
A football hooligan film with a focus on the friendship between two boys, set during the late 1970s, but I couldn't help but feel I have seen it all before, such as I.D., The Firm, Green Street, etc. I admit I had a problem telling two actors (Carty and Elvis) apart, which affected my viewing. Production design is great, though. (Awaydays is available on BBC iPlayer until this Monday).

Bad News Bears (2005) (LINK)

This remake of the 1976 original was pretty good. Billy Bob Thornton was great as the alcoholic baseball coach. The kids on, the other hand, were not so great. The kids in the original film were far better than the ones in this remake. But it was still fun to watch.

Those creatures are cannon, they're from the original Superman comics


Behind The Candelabra

Michael Douglas just superb as Liberace, and Matt Damon equally as good as his young lover. Without doubt the campest film I've ever seen, with some hilarious guest appearances (Particularly Rob Lowe as a plastic surgeon). Funny, shocking and sad in equal measure, this was quite superb.

9/10

Man Of Steel

I really enjoyed this, not quite up there with Donner's superlative double whammy from the late 70s but a massive improvement on Superman Returns. The scene where Superman takes flight for the first time was truly breathtaking, and the fight scenes and oil rig rescue were some of the best cgi-drenched set ups I've seen.
Only weak points were Costner as Dad (lacking the warmth & charisma of Glenn Ford) & Michael Shannon as Zod. I found his portrayal way too one dimensional and was yearning for some of Terence Stamp's camp humour.
Still, a great reboot, here's hoping Superman Vs Batman can take things up another gear.

8/10

iiuc SvB will open with Batman kicking Sups ass all over the place for 20mins, and the rest will simply be Sups huddled in a corner crying like a little baby.

No Way Out - 8/10. Surprisingly enjoyable. Totally worth the hassle of watching it on BBC iPlayer.
