Director: Steven Quale
“ WOW! talk about a Gorefest!! FD5 is a perfect way to end off a horror franchise that has gone on for too long. FD4 was really terrible, but they redeemed the series with this made-for-3D blood and gore spectacular! Incredibly humorous as well, and there will be one death that you will not see and will make you burst into laughter. ” - jigsawkiller135

“ I know some people may be wondering why this is so high on my list as it was much hated. I havn't seen the original Conan so didn't have much idea wat it was about. I am a massive fan of gore and blood and this movie delivered spectacularly. If anyone wants to see a movie for only pure action, this is the one. ” - jigsawkiller135

Director: Kenneth Branagh
“ I love Marvel films, and this was a very cool film. I'm from Australia so Thor was released a week before everywhere else. BOO YAH! Aussie Chris Hemsworth does a real good job as Thor and the visual effects in 3D were great. However, I was thinking I would see something that holds up the same standard of Iron Man and IM2, but they still are the superior Marvel films. Still worth watching though, as it is thoroughly entertaining ” - jigsawkiller135

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.9/10 X

Story is great, but come on this is Marvel! I wanted to see better action and a more fun movie. ” - jigsawkiller135

“ this craps on the first JE movie so muchh!! Great and silly story and freakin hilarious!! My favourite scenes were when JE was chasing the chinese guy, and the men's bathroom scene. Worth watching for a good laugh. No crude humour here if that's what ur looking for, just a good old-fashioned sillyness ” - jigsawkiller135

“ I was expecting to see something more on the lines of Taken walking into this movie, but i was kinda disappointed. However, although this is not a insanely good action film, it is more of a thriller. I loved the twist at the end, and it is just a great film to waste a couple of hours. ” - jigsawkiller135

    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.8/10 X

“ the first time i watched this was in 3D. Then when it came out on DVD, i watched it also. In 3D, it is an awesome action movie with great fight scenes. In 2D however, it felt like a really average action movie. So if you want to watch this one, my recommendation is watch it in 3D ” - jigsawkiller135

“ Even though this one did have its moments, i didn't really enjoy it as much as the first one. I didn't find a lot of this actually funny. There is still some great humour in this one, and it is worth a watch ” - jigsawkiller135

“ I saw this one with high expectations as the trailer looked like it was going to be a wicked action movie. However, after watching this, it was just really average. I recommend to watch it only when it is on DVD otherwise you will regret it. ” - jigsawkiller135
Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X

Director: Rob Marshall
“ This movie was so *beep* I had a decision to see Pirates 4 or Insidious. And i made a really regretful decision. The jokes weren't funny, it felt like it had no rhythm, and Johnny Depp didn't feel like his usual character. If you feel like you have to watch this do so, but be warned it is really crap! ” - jigsawkiller135
