  • Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens 2015

    ★★★★★ Added 4

    Now I am excited- X-WING battles across the water, Lightsabers that stop you getting your hands chopped off, storm troopers that will be falling from the sky, tiny football robots and new characters to look forward too.
    Plus most of the old cast are back---yay.

  • A Most Violent Year 2014

    ★★★ Watched 22 Feb, 2015

    An incredible cast that gives out fantastic performances all the way.
    Some people class this as the next Scarface. Well the power and corruption are there and Issac does turn into a young Pacino. But it's one big yawn fest of a movie. Be warned as the pace is incredibly slow.
    Remember how Ben Affleck directed 'Argo' making his movie feel it was set in the early 70's, well J.C Chandor does exactly the same but an 80's feel (where…

  • American Sniper 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Jan, 2015 2

    Bradley Cooper is an exceptional actor and perfect to play the role of the best sniper in U.S history.
    If I decided in my younger years to be a solider, a sniper would be the role I would have gone for.
    It's great to have Clint behind the camera again but apart from the sloppy moments when Kyle is at home the war scenes are very intense.
    Not looking much into this before viewing I didn't realise this was based…

  • The Interview 2014

    ★½ Watched 26 Dec, 2014

    Congratulations Seth! You just created the biggest promotion movie to every single living person on earth without doing any promotion.
    I saw a teaser trailer quite a long way back and straight away thought this is heading for trouble. I hate being right!
    Plenty of films have portrayed the insane leaders over the decades taking the complete pee out of them for example...Hot Shots and Team America.
    But the difference with this one is Kim clearly has no sense of…

  • Taken 3 2014


    Bet you a LIKE he is on the mobile at some point through this movie!

  • Inherent Vice 2014

    ★★★ Watched 11 Jan, 2015

    PTA's magic is always there no matter what he directs. The visuals, direction,actors and cinematography is always done to perfection.
    But.....for me personally I really didn't like this as much as I wanted too.
    Maybe it was too much dialogue with most of it by mumbles. At first I thought it was a Tom Hardy/Christopher Nolan (Dark Knight Rises) moment trying to understand what on earth Joaquin was saying but by the time it got through half an hour I…

  • Still Alice 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Jan, 2015 3

    Julianne Moore has to get the Oscar for this one! An incredible performance which she spills out her guts on screen.
    An awful disease which can hurt an entire family's life later on.
    I know a lovely couple that are in their late 50's and the husband was diagnosed with it over the past year or so. He has started to deteriorate and it is so sad to see. This movie reminded me of him having the same memory blocks…

  • Comet 2014

    ½ Watched 13 Jan, 2015

    See that flash going over your head, that is not a's me....after erupting and taking off into space into thinking this film would get better after 10mins or so.
    One and an half hour of watching utter dribble. Sorry, if that was me and some geeky twat decided to steal my date he would be punched into outer space. Then we can call it Justin's comet not Hailey's.
    I can see the idea of what they tried to acheive through the film but they could of made it more interesting.
    Save your time and watch 'Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind', it's so much better.

  • Horrible Bosses 2 2014

    Watched 26 Dec, 2014

    Hear that people!
    It's another cash cow because the first one was original and very funny.
    So let's get another made with all the same cast and create some crazy script and get that sequel out before people forget how good the first movie was.
    That pretty sums up this sequel like most these days. Such a shame because the first 5mins was quite funny which did actually make me laugh.
    Sorry but Kevin Spacey couldn't even save this one because he was still banged up behind bars.

  • Foxcatcher 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Dec, 2014

    This would be the best 3D film ever especially for pop up.
    John Du Pont's nose of course!
    Hey Warner Bros! Looking for someone to play The Penguin in the next Batman instalment, please choose Steve.
    Incredible that Dupont had everything in life.Clearly mum brought him up over the many years and took good care of him. He doesn't have any brothers or sisters but just people around him that can smell the green around his nose.
    As the…

  • Dumb and Dumber To 2014

    ★★ Watched 26 Dec, 2014

    Ok! The first Dumb and Dumber had me in tears of laughter through the very start and I guess with everybody else.
    It had to happen to bring our two favourite characters back sometime over the decade.
    But why on earth recycle the jokes from the first movie and try and turn that joke back round.
    I couldn't place my finger on it but some of the magic was missing from the movie. Maybe it was Jim and Jeff trying…

  • Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 06 Dec, 2014 10

    Jake really excels himself into this role so well, I completely forgot it was him halfway through.
    Great to see Rene Russo back, what a tasty role she had and pulled it off wonderfully too.
    This is a great intake of how the media are so pushy to get their story before rivals intervene or get one up on them.Over the years thanks to the wonderful internet it has gotten slightly worse and isn't getting better. Censorship is another key…
