The Sitter (2011)
Another pointless waste of case.
Against my better judgement, I decided to sit through this disastrous, disgrace to the good name of cinema. I fail to see why, in this modern day, we are subjected to this kind of trashy, disgraceful garbage. There is no need for this film to exist, its humour, weak and un thoughtful. Its characters, 1 dimensional and entirely forgettable. Do not think me as harsh as I too enjoy the pleasures of mindless entertainment from time to time, alas this is far from entertainment, it seems as cinema evolves there are still many a mistake to be made, this is a prime example.
Put your hard earned money to better use yet if you find that you must see this, wait, it will surly fall in price soon.
A pleasant surprise!
I wasn't expecting much from this film but I was proved wrong. The story is fantastic showing how the apes begin to rise! There are lots of respects shown to the original film as well. The effect are fantastic and Andy serkis plays Cesar perfectly which wasn't surprising given his past performances. The thing I really like about the film is they didn't over use anything. For example when Cesar speaks he doesn't really say much through the film. Also the action isn't over the top which suits the film. James Franco was fantastic as was John lithgow. All in all there is fantastic acting accompanied with great effects and a great story line. A worthy instalment to the Planet Of The Apes films.
Battle Los Angeles (2011)
Destined for the bargain bins!
I'll admit my hopes weren't exactly high when I put this film on and yet I still ended up disappointed at how terrible it is!
Pretty average 'special' effects through out the film. Some parts were completely pointless Eg a scene where they cut up a near dead invader to find out its weak spot which is seemingly difficult to get to and they never use the info they learn.
The acting is pretty standard for this type of mindless action flick! Most scenes are based on marines running around mindlessly shooting in all directions. You'll see more organisation in a Call Of Duty game!
Not a great film and certainly not worth the money so wait a couple of months and you'll be able to pick it up for a couple of quid.
Taxi Driver (1976)
De niro at his best!
Being a fan of all Martins films I have to say that Taxi Driver is certainly one of his finest.
The film plays slowly and unfolds at a slow and steady pace and does not hurry. We follow Travis who is a loner and does not care too much for the people he meets on a daily bases and has a low opinion of the city on the whole. Travis works as a Taxi Driver and gradually gets fed up of what he sees every day so he eventually decides if no one else will help he will. He meets a young girl working the streets and decides to help her.
A nice steady film which heads to a fantastic conclusion and proves why Martin is ONE of the most important directors in cinematic history. Mr Scorsese you never disappoint!
The Adjustment Bureau (2011)
Hardly Bourne meets Inception
If your looking for Bourne meets Inception then you wont find it here.
The story is of a man trying to change his destiny and win the girl he is not supposed to be with.
Its has quite a slow place but it is a very good and original film. There is solid acting as usual from the fantastic Damon and Emily does a good job as his love interest. Though the film is original and a very good watch it isn't a classic which is a shame because all the parts are there if there was a bit more action and a bit more focus on the hidden world it would have been better. Worth a watch but certainly can't be compared to Bourne or Inception.
Wait? what part is this
The ending to the transformers trilogy is a pretty good film BUT its very similar to its predecessors.
The same basic story where Whitwickey must prove himself to help the auto bots struggle. The auto bots become ridiculously out numbered and out gunned but still manage to prevail over the evil decepticons. Its a tried and tested story which seems to be winning over fans.
Megan Fox's absence is felt which i was surprised about. Her replacement was flat dull and boring and brought nothing to the film.
Malkovich was a welcome breath of fresh air! The acting was pretty good through out and though repeated the story keeps your interest till the end.
The usual big metal robots smacking each other about and the good guys risking everything to save earth makes for a fairly good watch and a satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. Fun for hardcore fans and regular fans alike
A grand farewell!
I saw this at a midnight viewing in a packed cinema. Perfect way to say goodbye to a great series of films.
The film was fantastic and a great ending but people who have read the books will notice several points missing. Sadly some of the points that were included were cut shorter and were not done as much justice as they deserved.
Although there are some negative points to the finale for the most part fans of the book and films will be more than satisfied. A touching and complete film with lots of emotion and more action in this sitting then all its predecessors combined! It deserves multiple watches.
Goodbye harry potter! You will be missed!
X: First Class (2011)
First class film!
I really enjoyed this film. Its set in a time when Prof X and Magneto were actually friends! It gives you the back story of the duo and shows how the X-men came to be!
The good stuff: James and Michael do a fantastic job portraying the young Prof X and Magneto. The action sequences are fantastic. The special effects are fantastic. The story is fantastic. It explains how some of the X-men from the other films came to be and answers other questions like why is Prof X in a wheelchair. A great performance from Kevin Bacon and the entire cast! Also a nice surprise appearance...
The bad stuff: Not much to be fair! Some of the mutants were a bit lame. Also it ended! For fans and new comers alike you should love it!
Green Lantern (2011)
Another basic super hero flick
I did enjoy Green Lantern BUT it does has some very poor points to it.
The good stuff: Ryan Reynolds plays the cocky and arrogant Hal Jordan well much to the fact that in my opinion it suits him as a person. The world of the Lanterns if well done and looks nice. The special effects are pretty good and will keep you entertained and the story is okay if very predictable.
Tha bad stuff: The story is predictable and most of it has been done before. One thing that annoyed me is that after a ten man assault on the fear failed the lanterns seemed to give up and turn to the power of fear instead of using every lantern to fight the fear. The cocky arrogant hero has been done before.
All in all its a good film but don't go in with your hopes too high. Worth a watch but the summer has a lot more to offer!
Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010)
I had such high hopes for this film. Being directed by Edgar and starring Michael Cera it had to be good! And it was! This film is about Scott Pilgrim a boy who must defeat 7 evil ex boyfriends in order to freely date the mysterious Ramona.
The film has hilarious parts from beginning to end and Michael plays Scott incredibly well. Every side character is full of wit and charm.It also boasts an incredible soundtrack! It stays true to its comic book origins in the way its shot and plays out. Very funny and very original! I don't thing anybody should attempt to copy! You should definitely watch! 10/10!
