End of Watch. You have to suspend disbelief regarding the handheld camera element, but a decent Training Day sort of film, without being as good as Training Day.

Fame (2009) - 2/10
Surprisingly dull and forgettable. There's more life in Into Great Silence than this, for god's sake.

Rollerball (2002) - 2/10
This is what 'lolwut' was invented for.

Death Race (2008) - 4/10
Note to self: do not watch any more remakes for at least a month.

Please be good to me tomorrow, Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (2011), Homicide (1991) and Control (2007).

The Hindenburg. 7/10. Interesting movie, can't see it getting a remake anytime soon.

Anchorman - Absolutely hilarious.

Great cast of cameos from a few funny men.

I can't believe I haven't watched this before now.

8/10.

The World's End (LINK)

This film was extremely disappointing. I loved "Shaun of the Dead". I enjoyed "Hot Fuzz". So naturally I thought this film was going to be as good as those. Instead we got a badly thought out idea turned into a very bland film. There are some laughs but not enough to save it.

it's only been 2 years since the Lauren Lee Smith tv-movie version so methinks they'd have to wait a wee bit longer.

The Last Days On Mars

Awful sci-fi, about a team of astronauts who stumble upon some bacteria on Mars that, wait for it, turns them into zombies!!!! Utterly naff.

2/10

The Place Beyond The Pines

Really enjoyable drama set in 3 parts. The final act dragged slightly and lost momentum but overall a mostly engrossing experience with some neat twists & turns.

7/10

Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn - 7/10
I'm not keen on animated films, but it's Tintin! I hadn't seen this type of animation before and it was creepy as ****. At times, it seemed as if there were real actors wearing cartoon-like masks. Took me a while to get used to it. In spite of that, I found the film surprisingly entertaining and rather fun.

The Gleaners and I - The stuff about gleaning is interesting and it has a lot of good stuff to say about wastage and charity but Varda's own interjections are at best distracting and worst pretty irritating. 6/10

Philadelphia - love it. It never feels syrupy or sentimental and I don't think Hanks has been better. Denzel's great too. 8/10

Conan the Barbarian [2011]. Director: Marcus Nispel

7/10

Lacks the mythic qualities of the John Milius 1982 film but Jason "Khal Drogo" Momoa is far more convincing in the title role than that Austrian bodybuilder. Unfortunately this film flopped so Arnie is supposedly back in the next film in the franchise.

Fortress [2012]. Director: Mike Phillips

5/10

Direct-to-video WW2 movie. "No B-17s were harmed in the making of this picture" as they were all CGI. The swearing and boozing seem very 21st Century but the combat scenes work well enough on a limited budget.

Deception (2000) with Ben Affleck, Charlize Theron, James Frain and Gary Sinise.
Enjoyable if highly implausible movie. Affleck isn't really tough enough for this kind of role. Theron surprisingly good. Sinise excellent as a vile sadist. Frain excellent too but doesn't have enough screen time. 8/10.

Quantum of Solace

Brutal Bond Biffs Bully-Boy Baddies in razor-sharp 'Royale resumption. Craig-haters - choke on it. He f*ckin' rules in this. 8/10
Yay! I have this on dvd to watch so am really looking forward to it now! I loved Daniel Craig in Skyfall

Chopper - 10/10

Very very darkly funny.

American History X - 7/10

I understand that it is probably a pretty good film, but it is completely devoid of any humour whatsoever that its hard to watch tbh.

Gravity - 10/10

It was brilliant, actually brilliant. It looked and sounded incredible (in 3D)
