    First time watching it for a very long time and it's another one of those moments when I remember that I love a movie.

    It's pacing, mood and tone are perfect. The photography is right up my street with so many cool shots. And the set-pieces are as good as they get - the bank heist is probably my favourite action sequence ever.

    For a film that's about the adult jokes, this movie looks pretty great - in some places it's downright gorgeous.

    It's also very funny. I don't find Vince Vaughan's antics quite as funny as some other people but the chemistry between all the main characters is extremely good.

    Blimey. I'd heard only good things about this and, boy, it didn't disappoint. Maybe my favourite film from the last three or four years. The subject matter, style and production design are right up my street. It paints a conceivable future and shows its potential pitfalls at the same time as making it pretty appealing. Despite this incredibly cautionary tale, I found myself wanting a disembodied Scarlett Johansson in my phone (who wouldn't, right?).

    My only thought that might be…

    The ride of the Rohirrim... totally amazing.
