The Impossible - the cheeky product placement at the very end deserved a 2-point deduction. No idea why Naomi got nominated. The visual effects re-enacting the tsunami were really impressive though 7/10

Cloud Atlas - the film complemented the book really well (starting from the narrative structure) The makeup for all characters was terrific - why the team didn't get any Oscar nomination is beyond me. It would be much easier understanding the film if you read the book before hand 8/10

Hurt Locker(2008) 8/10
Really late getting to watch this but it was on Channel 4 Saturday so gave it a go.I was pleasantly surprised, I expected it to be quite worthy and hard work, but it was excellently paced, shot, great script performances, REALLY impressed, well deserved its Oscar ahead of Avatar IMO.

Robot & Frank

Beautiful indie film about a guy suffering the early stages of althzeimer's who is given a robot to take care of him. It's funny, warm, hilarious and deeply moving. Wonderful film

9/10

Django Unchained - 10/10 - what can i say, Quentin Tarantino has done it again, a fantastic film, supurb cast, as you woukld expect from a Quentin Tarantino film, a high level of violance, gore and swearing, a few scenes were a bit uncomfortable but that aside i can't recommended this film highly enough

I feel sick at just remembering Ray with the hot nubile young officer and his y-fronts.

Once in head, it appears it's hard to erase... Yuck!



If you have any sense, I would avoid it. It's best not to get those horrendous pictures of Ray in your head in the first place.
Av a bang on thaaat.

The Sweeney (2012)

Oh dear. It's so bad I'm not sure where to begin. Ray Winstone phoning in another performance, just being Ray Winstone again( mumbles, the odd snarl, grunts)... Plan B is so inept at acting I'm gobsmacked someone hired him. Just give it up already, please. The storyline was thin and vague, the big set piece was a chase around a caravan park... the 'love' story between Ray & a hot nubile young officer was absolutely repulsive, particularly the endless shots of Ray's massive gut portruding o'er his y-fronts *vom*... what the hell were they thinking?????

0/10
So turns out Plan A wasn't to have singing talent OR acting talent.

Chalet Girl [2011]. Director: Phil Traill

7/10

An load of romance, comedy and sports movie clichťs crammed into an unfailingly amiable 97 minutes.

Blackout (2008)

Implausible thriller about 3 people stuck in a lift.

Ironically it offers little in the way of suspense.

Ray Winston shagging, definately 0/10. I don't need to see that.
No-one needs to see that ! Bet even his missus asks for the lights off before they go at it.

Not at all uplifting.
What a let down.

Rewatched Possession ('81) last night, staring Sam Neill and Isabelle Adjani. I'd recommend it to anybody. It follows certain 'horror' elements but it goes way beyond just being a horror flick and is one of the greatest studies in the breakdown of a marriage and the psychological destruction of the people involved in it that I've ever seen committed to film.

Sam Neill is fantastic in it but Adjani, as usual, completely owns the screen. When you think that somebody like Natalie Portman won an Oscar for her portrayal of derangement in The Black Swan and Adjani's performance in Possession went largely ignored by mainstream awarding bodies... the mind boggles.

Greedy - 1994 A comedy with Michael J.Fox, Kirk Douglas, the late Phil Hartman and the gorgeous Olivia D,Abo. Always makes me laugh.

21 Jump Street.

5/10. I'd have given it 7/10 for the first half as I quite enjoyed the concept and enjoy abit of juvenile humour.

Was surprised at the cameos.

]Open Range. A western starring and directed by Kevin Costner. Itís the story of four cattlemen who fall foul of Irish landowner Michael Gambon which results in Costner and Robert Duvall taking on Gambonís men in a shootout.

Itís not a rollicking, action packed western. Instead Costner takes his time to build characters and relationships so that you really care about what happens to them. Itís a beautifully photographed film and Costner clearly has an eye for detail and a love of westerns.

For me, the high spot of the film was Robert Duvall. He was simply wonderful as the tough, no-nonsense trail boss with a soft heart. He created a character with depth, wisdom, humour and dignity.

Itís a slow build to the shoot-out but when it happens itís one of the best and most realistic ever filmed and because of all thatís gone before youíll be rooting for our heroes.

La Delicatesse (2011)

I watched this on Netflix as it had Audrey Tatou in it. Form reading the sypnopsis nothing really stood out but at the end of the film my heart felt incredibly warmed and I had a big smile on my face. The French have the talent of turning something quite simple into something beautiful.

8/10

I'd recommend Delicacy if you haven't already seen it.

Season Of The Witch (2011)

Medieval knights talked like 20th Century Hollywood action heroes. Who knew?

It falls between two stools. Not enough humour to be enjoyably tongue-in-cheek and too boring to be entertaining dark fantasy. If you're after 14th century plague era sword-and-sorcery, I'd say Black Death is a much better option
