    I really liked Clooney in Gravity. Bullock, though, was true to her namesake.

      OK you are right, he was quite good in it. But his smile gives me the heebie jeebies.

        • The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2

          I enjoyed it. A few unpredictable moments, which is impressive given the genre and it's target audience. While this wouldn't be remembered as one of greats when people think of epic Sci-Fi / fantasy sagas, I did enjoy the series and I do think this last chapter finishes things nicely

          Score:
          6.5/10 (as a movie)
          7/10 (as a series)


          The Good Dinosaur

          Think the opening sequence in Up - the part before the movie properly started - and you get the entirety of this dull yawn-fest. But what I don't get is who this movie is supposed to be aimed at. There's scenes that seem badly judged for kids watching (fight scenes, aggressive language), yet the rest of movie is far too childish for adults. And the whole thing is far too dull for anyone to watch in one sitting. I'll admit I'm not generally the biggest fan of Pixars to begin with (Monsters Inc was pretty cool though), but even my son - who is obsessed with dinosaurs was board senseless with this film. The one good thing about this movie is the CGI backdrop - which is amazing. But sadly the characters look too cartoony against the photo-realistic scenery. Which leaves me wondering if this movie was just intended to be a demo of some new in-house software - like those fancy demos that graphics cards used to come with - that accidentally got turned into a film. In any case, don't bother. Not even if you've got kids who like dinosaurs. Just don't.

          Score: 3/10


          The Wizard

          80s family movie. My wife used to love this when she was a kid and since it features computer games (at times it actually feels more like an advert for Nintendo than a movie!!) and is suitable to watch with the kids, we thought we'd throw it on one afternoon. It actually turned out to be quite a fun film. Very much a product of the late 80s, but still enjoyable even without the nostalgia element.

          Score: 7/10

          • The Judge 2014

            Superb film although quite long >2hrs.

            Robert Downey JR at his best possibly?
            I am not losing weight! I'm getting rid of it. I have no intention of finding it again!

            • Insurgent

              Basically just Divergent part 2. Not as good as the first movie. While it did have some nice moments, it was pretty naff on the whole. However I've seen much worse.

              Score 6 / 10.

              • Deadpool....

                A grown ups Marvel Film..... thoroughly enjoyed it but the wife did not like all the sarcasm ( very much like Blade Trinity ).....thin story line but Ryan Reynolds was actually very good...

                Score 8 / 10

                • The Jacket - 2005 Psychological thriller/horror with Adrien Brody, Keira Knightley, Daniel Craig and Kris Kristofferson - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0366627/
                  I only know it because parts of it were shot at an old Hospital near me, and this was my 3rd viewing of it.

                  I've seen The Butterfly Effect referenced when talking about this film but I've never seen that so can't compare.
                  The whole aspect of altering? the present through the future though was well done and just an all round good movie to me.

                  Score 8/10

                        It was quite good for about an hour and then it turned to poo, same old ending seen in many other films.

                        • Been hitting the DC straight to DVD archives after enjoying both the second season of DareDevil and the latest Batman, plus looking forward to Suicide Squad. Ploughed through a load of Batman/Superman/Justice league films and think my favorite was Batman Vs the Elite if only for the atrocious English accent of Manchester Black and his frequent use of a word that the Yanks don't count as rude but you can be sure as hell is in the Aria swear filter.

                          Rhymes with "banker".

                              • Went and seen Suicide Squad this afternoon and was not all that good. It wasn't terrible mind you just not as good as it could have been.

                                I'd only give it a 6/10.
