Best Exotic Marigold Hotel - 6.5/10 exactly the feel-good, easy watching, people finding themselves plod I was expecting. Several national treasures going thru the motions.

Underworld: Awakening - 6.5/10 Someone swapped the scripts with Ressie Evil I think. It didn't hold my interest once I'd conviced myself the giant werewolf wasn't the fella from Coldplay.

Drive Angry - 8/10

Dumb fun. William Fichtner is very underrated.

Zero Dark 30 - Not my type of film but saw it for Jessica Chastain. Great film and fantastically directed. However Chastain's performance wasn't as oscar worthy as others have made it out to be. She is now crossed off on who i want to win the oscar, along with Helen Mirren.

The Hobbit

10/10 Have read the book at least 5 times, and was really excited for the movie. Have to say, they pulled it off. Awesome action and each of the actors fit the roles perfectly. Stunning scenery and fantastic CGI.

Easily the best movie of 2012 for me.

Going to see it again next week.

Dredd 3D, fantastic movie, Fantastic music.


Only bad point is the actual bad boss person isn't evil enough, I suppose they maybe did that as they didn't want to make Dredd look weak in anyway. (Make him look any less totally badass if you know what I mean).

It's a Wonderful Life (1946) 8/10 One of those movies that is shown almost every christmas, 'It's a Wonderful Life' started life as 'The Greatest Gift', a short story written by Philip Van Doren Stern in 1939 and published in 1945. George Bailey gives up on his lifes dreams in order to help the people of Bedford Falls fulfil theirs touching the lives of so many people along the way. But because of $8,000 of misplaced money George's life begins to crumble and just as he is about to commit suicide an angel steps in to show George what the town and the lives of its people would be like if he hadn't been born. Filmed in the middle of a sweltering July, 6,000 gallons of a new type of fake snow was used. Up until 'Its a Wonderful Life', cornflakes painted white were used to show snow. So innovative was this that the RKO Effects Department received a technical award from the Academy, but although the movie was nominated for five academy awards including 'Best Picture' 'Best Director' and 'Best Actor' it didnt win any. Great movie with a great performance from Stewart.
Fabulously informative review. Good to learn new things about one a my fav'e films of all time. I watched it over Christmas, of course. 10/10 for me.

Batman (DKR) - 9/10

On the blu ray they seemed to have increased Bane's voice a bit too much!

The Devils [1971]. Director: Ken Russell


Wild and crazy stuff from Mr Russell. Over 40 years on and Warners still won't let the director's cut get a commercial release.

Yesterday: Calamity Jane 10/10
Fabulous watched this movie time and again, Doris day is wonderful and Howard Keel looks handsome and almost trim. The songs are catchy and I know nearly all off them, off by heart.

Just finished now: Cemetry Junction: 7.5/10
The 1970's setting makes it feel like a spin off from 'Life on Mars', which I loved BTW. Loved the main character Freddy), the chap who played him (Christian something or other) really looked like he had time travelled back from the 70's, just to do the role. It had some real laugh out loud moments, some of the things Freddies family came out with reminded me of my youth.

Train To Hell (aka Night Train To Venice) - 1/10

Hugh Grant & Malcom McDowell. Has an IMDB average rating of 2.0 / 10, so I wasn't expecting much. But I expected something, anything. There was nothing except one of the most generous ratings on the entire site. I'd ask people to watch if only to placate me and satisfy some of the many questions it raised (other than what the hell am I wasting my time on this for) although most of them are rhetorical questions as there are no answers. Some of those low rating films are so bad, that they're mildly amusing. This was not one of those.

Life of Pi 8/10
Best use of 3D I've seen yt, movie was an excellent interpretation of the book. One of my fav books and am really impressed with how well they converted the story. Fabulous cinematography/CGI.

A Better World 2010 Danish film I've been meaning to watch for ages but caught it on Sky movies today. Fantastically written multi layered story based in Denmark and Nigeria. Story of two boys unlikely friendship tackling topics of violence, bullying and moral judgement. Fantastic. 10/10

The Hobbit Part 1 - 8/10 - The prequel to LoR. I was a bit worried about how they were going to stretch this book into 3 films. But what they have done is made it with a lot of action. I enjoyed it and the 3D has been done quite well. Some CGI moments were obvious but nothing that distracts from the movie itself.

Mr Nice 2010 - 5.5/10 - It's based on a true life story of a British drug dealer. It'll probably entertain college students more than I.
