  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 2013

    ★★★★ Rewatched 16 Nov, 2014 1

    I'm so glad that after my disappointment of the overblown first hobbit outing that this second instalment has restored my faith in this trilogy.

    For those who know the story very well, like myself, probably also felt my frustration with the first film, we had dwarves and the trolls but we didn't even get to the barrels!

It's tense, fast paced and full to the brim with enough action and bullets to take down a small country. It has…

    A superb creation. Matthew Vaughn brings the previously little known comic book "Kick-Ass" to life on the big screen, and boy does he do a fantastic job. Kick-Ass follows the story of Dave Lizewski who's had enough of the bullies and takes matters into his own hands - becoming the wet suit clad hero Kick-Ass. The story is detailed with some excellent links to a huge number of films and comics. We are introduced to a host of great characters…
