  • The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 20 Jul, 2012

    Ok, I could waste your time and nit-pick, transcend into a rant about why its a good film, and why its not. Weigh up the odds and evens, but i'm not going to. Chances are you've already booked your tickets, or are planning on going within the next week or so. Film's devide opinion. We each have our own thoughts and feelings, and moods toward films. The Dark Knight Rises is a very, very smart, thrilling, enjoyable and emotional film. It is, in this reviewer's opinion, second to none, and is a truly brilliant end, to a truly brilliant trilogy.

  • Prometheus 2012

    ★★ Watched 06 Jun, 2012

Battleship is one of the funniest films released in a while accept there's no comedy in it, the film is just a joke in itself.

  • The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 13 Apr, 2012

    Cabin in the Woods is a complete breath of fresh air. Without spoiling any plot details, it is without a doubt an insane rollercoaster ride into the world of horror. The film takes every stereotype known to the genre, and tips it on its head pumping new ideas into an old and waring narrative. Packed with nods and homages, the film is a horror fans wet dream. Once over, its actually scary, hitting the mark with jumps and chills, and…
