    Iron Man 2008

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 30 Oct, 2011

    This is one of the best comic book movies I think I've ever seen (save for The Dark Knight, obviously). It's also one of my favourite films. Definitely recommended if by some cruel twist of fate, you haven't seen this film.

  • Rush Hour 2

    Rush Hour 2 2001

    ★★★★ Watched 20 Oct, 2011

    This is one of the few silly comedy films that I genuinely enjoy. All three Rush Hour films are worth watching.

  • Tucker and Dale vs Evil

    Tucker and Dale vs Evil 2010

    ★★★★★ Watched 21 Oct, 2011

    This is an incredible film. It is to massacre films what Shaun of the dead is to zombie films. This is easily the best film I've watched this year.

  • Hudson Hawk

    Hudson Hawk 1991

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 Oct, 2011

    This is a stupidly fun film. It's crazy confusing at points (then again it was 4am) but I like it that way. The comedy is similar to that of Hot Shots, but delivered by Bruce Willis, which is awesome.

    Definitely worth a watch

  • Green Lantern

    Green Lantern 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 01 Oct, 2011

    Even when being watched on a plane this film is awesome. It's pretty honest to the original comics and where things were changed, they were changed to good effect.

    It took me a little while to realise that the final 'boss fight' was actually happening though, because, as in Transformers 2, there's a little too much awesome. You need some non-action-packed bits inbetween fights to be able to distinguish properly between fight scenes and epic fight scenes.

  • Predators

    Predators 2010

    ★★★½ Rewatched 18 Oct, 2011

    I fell asleep half way through because it was 2am, but this is still an awesome film. WAY better than the AvP films. Great cast.
