A sequel being a cash cow, surely that is the definition of a sequel.

Don't think it's meant to be a plot heavy film anyway, things like story got killed off in this series with the awful second movie, so as long there is as little CGI as possible, decent locations and Tom Cruise doing his own stunts i'm sure it will be watchable, hope so as i have IMAX tickets booked for Sunday lol.

You want know about a bad movie.

What's Your Number - 2011 - 4/10


Only watched this as i was on a plane, had seen everything else, and wanted something light hearted since i'm not a great flyer.

Well this was not entertaining, not cute, not funny and i don't even think it even tries that hard.

Gave up with about 10-15mins to go as i just didn't care what happened, the only reason it gets a 4 is because Anna Faris runs about in her underwear a fair amount of time.

So has anyone seen this yet? I watched it last night and I must say its the only movie I have ever had to turn off. This was the most disgusting and disturbing movie I have ever seen. I didn't even get to the part where he starting making the centipede.

Really good film. Well worth the watch but do not watch the dubbed version.



Alright film but really not what I thought it was going to be about.



Another alright movie but I dare anyone to watch the final 30 minutes or so and not end up thinking, hmmm that film was quite a lot like Akira.

i remember seeing this when i was a kid, so when i came across this yesterday i had to get it. i picked up the ultimate edition on blu-ray. which came with a directors cut version and the theatrical release. such an epic movie. dont even bother with the theatrical release because so much content is cut from it. the directors cut is just awesome.

Last movie I saw was Rushmore, excellent funny movie, one of the best I've seen recently. Highly recommended. The main character and Bill Murray are priceless in this

No! But I've heard about it, it sounds too freaky for me. I hear A Serbian film is also highly disturbing.

I liked Drive too, it was a bit simple / underplayed in the dialogue though IMO. If you want to see some more good stuff from the same instructor, I can recommend watching his Pusher trillogy, it's in Danish, which I bet you'll find to be a funny sounding language. Great movies.

Been looking at this myself, is there a big difference between the print used for the Director's Cut as i hear it's not as good as the Theatrical, or is the DC so much better that the difference in quality shouldn't matter.

Incomprehensible plot, boring actions, wooden characters/acting.

Just save yourself two hours of your life and skip this.

By quality, you mean image or the content that was cut from it? the image quality is pretty good for a 27 year old movie thats been remastered for blu-ray. i watched the theatrical release first, then watch the driectors cut. the directors cut id by far the better of the 2 because it has all those deleted scenes in it.

The Hunger Games



Rating - 6/10

First off, I didnt know the movie would be that long (its 2Hrs 20 mins). Secondly for you to sit in a theatre for that long, the movie should have you glued to your seats. It does not do that. I kept looking at my watch for it to end. And yet it could have been so much better !!! The direction of the movie looks like the director was actually bored while making it and did not put in much effort. and it shows. The movie is dull and dreary. I would rather have read the series.

Watched Chronicle yesterday.

Didn't really exceed my expectations, which werent high at all.
It's an ok movie, fun to watch with a few buddies and a cold one, nothing too fancy.

The movie starts off rather slow, giving some insight into the characters background.
It drags a bit until the finale, which is kinda over-the-top, even for this movie's standards.

Overall an enjoyable experience, just don't expect to see something truly unique.

The Woman iN Black (2012)



i hate remakes!!!

i've owned the original 1989 version which was made for TV for like 10 years now and remains an absolute classic, the new one got CGI and Daniel Crapcliffe, it sucks.

avoid and watch the original!

Battleship (2012)



Rating: 1.5/10

There are very few times that I walk out of a movie feeling overjoyed at the time spent watching it, this was the complete opposite; I actually felt kind of violated.

The movie has some of the biggest plot holes I have ever seen in any film. I can turn off my thinking brain for some movies, but don't push it into "IQ of 15" territory. How the hell did they the millions needed to produce this movie? Even Skyline was a better alien invasion flick, and that was pretty low.

The action is plain old boring and completely idiotic... hell, the entire movie is nonsensical.

 Click to show spoiler



I want the two hours of my life back. Please, on principle, don't watch this and give them money and incentive to make more sh!t films like this.

Snow White and the Huntsman



Went and saw this with the wife Saturday. She liked it which is odd, because she rarely like anything these days. I thought I was pretty good and it wasnt the bore fest I thought it was going to be. Charlize Theron played the evil queen perfectly. But she should stick to roles that don't require her to fake an english accent. It's that bad. The other 2 did an ok job in their roles. Its was weird hearing Chris Hemsworth talk though, then I remembered he's from Australia.

7/10


The Cabin in the Woods

[IMG]http://andrewgforbes.files.**************/2012/04/the-cabin-in-the-woods.jpg[/IMG]

Pretty good imo. Typical horror movie is typical. I wasn't expecting much, but got my monies worth. Will add this to my blu-ray collection when it comes out.

6/10


Safe House



Got this yesterday on blu-ray. I thought it was really good. Lots of bullets and destruction are a win in my book. Denzel Washington did a remarkable job in this movie. As for Ryan Reynolds, I can't take him seriously anymore after the hot mess that was Green Lantern.
