Collapse

Former LA police office, author and peak-oil activist, Michael Ruppert, shares his bleak vision for the future of humanity. You start out thinking these are the typical ramblings of a conspiracy-theorist, but his arguments are compellingly persuasive. By the end you are desperately hoping he’s a lunatic, because the terrifying alternative is that he is right.

Monsters

Gareth Edward's first movie. Very impressive considering the shoestring budget. Not at all what you expect - much more character-driven than action packed. More romantic drama, than horror, though there are definitely scares to be had here. Very well shot, and keeps the suspense up by not showing the monsters until necessary. Recommended.

Spy

Fun but instantly forgettable. If you don't like Melissa McCarthy, this isn't going to change your mind. Standouts are Jason Statham, playing against type as a bumbling idiot, Rose Byrne, as the villain and Miranda Hart, in (AFAIK) her first Hollywood role.

Arnie was good and it was moody and atmospheric, but this movie's fundamental problem stems from the fact that it is a zombie movie without any zombies....

The Raid

I haven't had this much fun with an action movie since John Woo's Hard Boiled. Amazing fight sequences and a high body count that doesn't let up from start to finish. What more do you want from an action film?

Skyfall

This what a great movie. I'm just not sure it was a great Bond movie. It just didn't have the sense of fun that I expect from Bond.

It's impressive that they made a show without a single likeable character. I want to punch all of them. These guys are idiots but not even in the cool, funny sense.

Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues

It was actually better than I expected (but I expected it to be terrible!). Some of the jokes miss their mark, bug when they hit you'll be laughing out loud. It was also cleverer than I expected with an amusing take on the rise of Murdoch journalism, and the rolling 24hr news machine.

Pacific Rim

On paper this sounded terrible, except for one thing - it came from the mind Guillermo Del Toro. This was the only reason I decided to watch it, and I was pleasantly surprised. As blockbuster monster movies go this one seriously delivers. The special effects are first rate, and it's really a lot of fun.

Performance wise, Idris Elba and Rinko Kikuchi and standouts. Del Toro favourite, Ron Perlman, has a small but fun role. The weaker links are Charlie Hunnam and Charlie Day, the latter serving as comic relief. Day merely does his usual "It's always sunny in Philadelphia" schtick which tonally doesn't sit that well with the rest of the film.

On the flip side the spectacle of huge monsters and robots battling each other while destroying the cities around them, is worth the admission price on its own. It's the ultimate Sunday night movie - unlikely to challenge you intellectually, but a perfect mindless end to the weekend!

Tennis

An engaging short film which stays with you long after its 23 minute running time. A sharp inciteful script, and a powerful and moving performance from Joseph Gilgun is sured up by Gourlay's solid direction. I look forward to more things from this director. Recommended.

Blue Jasmine

Every few years Woody Allen's newest film is trumpeted by the press as his "best film in years" - Wimbledon, Vicky Cristina Barcelona, Midnight in Paris - and while these films are good, when you finally get to watch them, they can't quite live up to the hype. Blue Jasmine more than lives up to it.

Cate Blanchett's Jasmine is one of the finest pieces of acting I have ever seen - a powerhouse performance. A touching portrayal of a woman holding on to life by her fingernails. The supporting roles are also first rate.

Blue Jasmine IS Woody Allen's best film in years, hell I'd even go as far to say that it could be one of his best films ever. At 77 years old he can still surprise us.

The Jungle Book

My absolutely favourite of the Walt Disney-era Disney films. Amazing songs and great characters. It also stands up well to the test of time. Trivia - This was the last film to have Walt Disney's personal touch before his death in 1966.

Oldboy

How have I only just watched this film? Absolutely breathtaking. The corridor fight scene, all shot in one take, is masterfully choreographed. I haven't seen the remake yet, but something tells me, it won't be a patch on this. Just watch it.

White House Down

Forget "A Good Day to Die Hard", THIS should have been the new Die Hard movie. With only a few changes this could easily have replaced Channing Tatum with Bruce Willis as John McClaine. Other that a few minor flaws, it surprisingly delivered all the thrills of a classic 80s action movie. Sure the plot was preposterous - but that's kind of what makes it fun. For pure DieHardian action this movie leaves you smiling.

The Internship

Nothing about this movie should work, and without Vaughn and Wilson it wouldn't. It is a credit to their chemistry as a double act, that they are able to elevate something which should be mediocre and make it thoroughly entertaining.
