From the Cradle to the Slave.
Was always a possibility that a Quentin Tarantino made western could fail dramatically, but thankfully he reigns in the cheesy b-movie homages to a large extent, playing it pretty much straight forward, sure we get the odd throwback like calling the ranch CandyLand but nothing like his usual style, ohh and the less said about his cameo the better.
Must be stated its an in-name only version and nothing like the Franco Nero original.…
"Because if there's one thing we've learned from penny dreadfuls... it's that when you find yourself in a place like this, you must never be a candy-ass."
- M. Gustave ( Ralph Fiennes)
The endearingly twee tall tale of Grand Budapest Hotels even grander concierge M Gustave, and Zero Moustafa the bell boy who became his most trusted employee and loyalist of friends.
Gerry Anderson roles out his familiar faced marionettes for another sumptuous slice of comedy, with lashings and…
Fantastic, visually and aurally flawless... its the best video game cut scene you've ever seen.
I'll be honest theres very little wrong with the whole production the cast, script & pacing are all so fine tuned, to as near comic book action perfection as you could ever hope to see. But here lies Avengers only real flaw, it feels more like a mass made production line product instead of something lovingly created by hand.
Nolan's script could have done with some heavy duty viagra to get this substandard entry to Rise...
Poor third outing in the Dark Knight trilogy, suffers drastically by the weak central villain (surely Bane's nothing more than an henchman) and unimaginative setup of yawn terrorists blowing up the city. Nolan even uses the infamous 'Death or Mau Mau' joke at one period when a kangaroo court asks Commissioner Gordon if he wants Death or Exile.
Its a shame it ends…
"There are NO rules: There's NO government, NO baby sitters, NO bedtimes, NO frowny faces, NO bushy mustaches, and NO negativity of any kind... And there's also NO consistency."
- Princess Unikitty (Alison Brie)
Generic legoman Emmet is reluctantly thrust into the heroic shoes of a master builder, to help fight off the threat of president businessman's evil globalization plan to glue the pieces of Lego's ever changing multi universes together.
Lego Movies plot and gags lack consistency but its…
And the winner for the worst Oscar nomination ever is... ?
Why did people rate this so damned highly, its not got a believable character in the whole damn movie. Its like a check list of every schmaltzy/moronic movie idea...

dancing competition [x]
romantic moment he chooses wrong girl [x]
comical black side kick [x]
It should have been called 'Billy Elliot Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, while looking Pretty in Pink'.
"Dear Suzy, walk four hundred yards due north from your house to the dirt path which has not got any name on it. Turn right and follow to the end. I will meet you in the meadow."
Jared Gilman as Sam
Wes Anderson proves again he's got the midas touch, only everything he touches turns to quirky. Moonrise Kingdom is basically a romanticized children's tale packed with Hollywoods heavy weights. Its about an unliked orphan scout named Sam (Jared Gilman)…
I loved Peter Jackson's original Lotr's trilogy, maybe I wasn't in the right mood but "The Hobbit" bored me senseless, the two and half hours felt like five. We follow Bilbo, Gandalf and a band of merry dwarfs who have set out to recaptured the last dwarven kingdom Lonely Mountain.
The cast are fantastic Martin Freeman made a great lead, Ian McKellen was again fantastic as the grey wizard, and it was a treat seeing the likes of James Nesbitt…
I watched it in a massive year end backlog viewing session, of movies I was expecting I'd include in my favorite films of 2012. Looper just missed out, but it was still a movie I was glad to have caught. Joseph Gordon-Levitt has matured into a very gifted actor, and this ones another that he really shines in.
Not going to say much, was an entertaining time travel crime movie. Slightly muddled and a little too pedestrian at times, and not really in the same league as similar themed movies like Twelve Monkeys or Timecrimes but well worth investing 2 hours of your time on.
