    Deep Blue Sea

    Giant sharks eating Samuel L Jackson, Saffron Burrows, Stellan Skarsgaard and LL Cool J. What's not to love?!

    Superman

    Christopher Reeve's first (and undoubtedly best) outing as the Man of Steel. Still a great movie.

    Waiting...

    The lives and loves of a group of restaurant chain employees. Very funny, but a reminder not to **** off those who deal with your food...!

    White Men Can't Jump

    Woody Harrelson and Wesley Snipes play two basketball hustlers trying to get a big score on the street courts of LA. Forgot how funny this movie was.

    Jacob's Ladder.

    Quite an old film, but worth watching, quite deep, quite dark, but pretty good.

    A few recent viewings

    Apollo 18 (2011)
    Home movie styled, crappy camera type horror. Not too bad but the camera "interference" became quite annoying.

    Basic (2003)
    John Travolta and Samuel L Jackson in a complex, hard to follow military drama about a murder in the jungle. Worth sticking with (and rewinding a few times when key plot points are missed).

    Killer Elite (2011)
    Jason Statham and Clive Owen are pitted against each in this special forces thriller. Based on Ranulph Fiennes "true" story about SAS operations in Oman. Good exciting stuff with a few good twists.

    The Manchurian Candidate (2004)

    A remake starring Denzel Washington as the soldier trying to find out the truth about a Gulf War hero. Enjoyable thriller.

    Guns, Girls and Gambling [2011]
    Christian Slater, Gary Oldman

    The story throws Elvis impersonators, Indians, modern cowboys, a 6-foot-tall blond assassin, a frat boy, a corrupt sheriff and a prostitute into a chase for a priceless American Indian artifact stolen during a poker game at an Indian casino.

    Good fun to pass the time

    3, 2, 1... Frankie Go Boom [2012]
    Charlie Hunman , Ron Pearlman, Chris O'Dowd

    Frank Bartlett has been tortured, embarrassed, and humiliated by his brother Bruce -- usually on film -- his entire life. Now that Bruce is finally off drugs and has turned his life around, things should be different. They are not.

    Weird ,funny but not quite as funny as it sometimes think's it is,but enjoyable none the less

    Fright Night (2011)

    Well, I eventually caved and watched the remake of the 1985 vampire classic, and....

    ...it actually wasn't that bad.

    The scriptwriters monkeyed around with some of the plot points (for a start, the main character Charlie is NOT the one who finds out his neighbour is a vampire!), but they stick largely to the premise of the original. David Tennant plays the new version of Peter Vincent as a vain, preening Vegas entertainer, not the mild-mannered English horror movie actor of the original, which kind of works well in this version. The special effects aren't too shabby, and there's a good bit of blood and gore, but I found it still a bit watered-down compared to the original. Plus, it has no transforming vampires, which the original did well to incorporate.

    Verdict: 7.5/10

    Vamp

    Another 1980s horror classic. Still great fun, and while Grace Jones wouldn't be my first choice as an exotic dancer, she does make an awesome bloodsucker!

    Verdict: 8/10

    Zoltan - Hound of Dracula

    Dracula's faithful Doberman, Zoltan, is resurrected and, along with one of Dracula's disciples, journeys to America to find one of the Count's last remaining descendants in order that they can serve a new master. Cue lots of snarling dog shots, and a fair bit of gore from this 1970s horror, although the storyline is as bonkers as its title!

    Space Cowboys

    It stars Clint Eastwood, Tommy Lee Jones, and many other stars. It's about a retired astronaut who has to return to space for a mission and he insists on partaking in the mission with his equally as old counterparts. It was a pretty good movie, and I'd actually recommend it.

    The Jungle Book

    Amazingly, I had NEVER seen this Disney classic up until the other day! Not bad at all, in fact. Gotta love the King Louis number, though!

    The Raid

    Indonesian kick-assery as a group of armed cops storm a high-rise in downtown Jakarta which houses a crime villain and his gang of thugs. Not bad at all!

    Scum (1979)
    A hardhitting and brutal story of borstal inmates. This must have been pretty shocking in 1979 as it is still shocking even now. Great performances from future star. Not a barrel of laughs but compelling viewing.

    Final Destination 5 (2011)
    Survivors of a bridge collapse meet death in various ways. Pretty good actually but very gruesome.

    Goodfellas (1990)
    The true story of Henry Hill and his rise through the gangster ranks. A true classic. Joe Pesci, Robert be Niro and Ray Liotta at their very best.

    The Omen trilogy

    Classic horror film series about the birth of the Antichrist. The first is, obviously, the best, but the other two aren't too bad either, with some genuinely imaginative death scenes throughout!

    War Horse

    Undoubtedly now my favourite horsey film, this is Spielberg at his best. And yes, I needed a hanky or two towards the end!

    Elvira - Mistress of the Dark

    Madcap B-movie about a sexy horror film hostess who gets stuck in a small American town and proceeds to cause mayhem for the quiet townsfolk. Good fun, if nothing else, and Cassandra Petersen has EPIC boobs! :diablo:

    The Hurt Locker (2008)
    A squad deal with IEDs in Iraq. Excellent war film. Satisfying on almost every level

    Dark Blue World (2001)
    Two pilots from Czechoslovakia come to the UK to fight over a woman as well as fight the Germans. Nicely filmed war/love story. It's all there, humour, anger, sadness and Spitfires. Great stuff.

    The Fifth Element (1997)

    Bruce Willis saves the world in this fabulous looking Luc Besson sci-fi extravaganza. With costumes by Jean-Paul Gaultier it was never going to be a shrinking violet sort of movie. As it never takes itself too seriously it is never less than than great fun.

    Benicio DelToro's version of the classic Universal Studios monster movie. Good fun, if nothing else.

    An American Werewolf in London

    Classic. That's all there is to say!

    The Taking of Pelham 123

    The Tony Scott-directed remake of the 1970s thriller was pretty good. Haven't seen the original to compare, mind!

    The Day [2011]
    Five survivors in a post-apocalyptic world find a house to hole up in with gruesome results.
    I thought this was a very good intense movie. The 'twist' is obvious fairly early on but the tension is maintained throughout the film.Good acting and characters to care about. 8/10

    Taken 2 [2012]
    A father and ex husband must fight to save his ex-wife and daughter from the relatives of the men who he killed in the first film.
    Loses a bit of the energy of the first film but an enjoyable romp . 7/10

    Ginger Snaps

    A teenage girl gets bitten by a werewolf, and her sister attempts to help her with a cure. Entertaining little film. 7/10

    When the Wind Blows (1986)
    Raymond Briggs animated film about an elderly couple preparing for and coping with a nuclear attack. A very moving and emotional film. Beautifully animated. Not exactly enjoyable due to the subject matter though.

    Along similar lines,

    Testament (1983)
    A mother struggles with her 3 children after a nuclear attack. Very well done but ultimately depressing film about the human condition. Like "Where the Wind Blows", not an enjoyable film to watch but nevertheless utterly enthralling.

    Horrible Bosses (2011)
    Three friends conspire to get rid their bosses who are nasty to them. I had low expectations of this but actually it was pretty good. The horrible bosses themselves, played by Kevin Spacey, Colin Farrell, and Jennifer Aniston were particularly good.

    War Horse (2011)
    Much has been already written about this film and it was difficult to watch it without pre-conceived notions about it. Having said that it was very good indeed. Beautifully filmed and acted, we watched it to see if it was suitable for our 9 year old. I think it is and it will be good for her to watch it in the run up to Remembrance Day.

    Midnight Run (1988)
    Haven't seen this for years and had forgotten how good it was. Robert de Niro is great in it as is most of the supporting cast, the FBI buffoons, the incompetent mobsters and John Ashton as Marvin. Great stuff.

    Skyfall....

    not a bad way to spend 2 hrs on a cold Saturday afternoon. It's a bit disjointed with a mix between the "new style" Bond (high tech HQ etc....) and the older movies and it does seem to stear it to the next one (Craig has signed up for three more?) towards the older style. No spoilers, but M ends up in a leather panelled office with a fire place much like the late, great, Bernard Lee's in the Connery films.

    Bad guy with bad hair captures Bond and tells him some of his plans.... so some of the old films still lives on !

    A mate of mine thought that, since I clearly had a deprived childhood, I needed to be shown how cartoon movies used to be made, so we started with:

    The Sword in the Stone

    I didn't think this old Disney fable about King Arthur was much cop, to be honest.

    Dumbo

    This was better, although my mate disagrees with me that it's an allegory to homophobia and racism...!

    Casino Royale/Quantum of Solace

    Just preparing for what I'm told is the most awesome Bond film yet this weekend....

    Dog Soldiers
    Vamp
    Dracula


    Just some good, old fashioned Halloween fun.

    "Red Tails" I waited long enough for this to be on sale in the shops, and I thought it was a great film, and I will undoubtedly watch it again.
    I didn't realise Racism was as rife as it was during the War, but these Tusgagee pilots certainly proved their point.
    For the first time, a 10 out of 10. from me.

    I saw Red Tails in the cinema. Quite enjoyed it, really. Wasn't too fussed about the historical accuracy etc, and just viewed it for what it was.

    Film? Not quite! Show yes!! Precision dancing, annoying beat, Irish feet tapping mayhem, violin magic with the exceptionally long legged Celtic Women, yet Michael Flatley in ‘Lord of the Dance’ still captivates.

    Cat's Eye

    Three stories revolving around a lost tabby cat looking for a young girl whose life he has to save. Starring a young Drew Barrymore.

    The Uncanny

    Peter Cushing investigates three horrific cases where cats were involved in the deaths of people. Silly but fun little horror film.

    I would like to see Jason Statham play BOND, never have been too keen on Craig, he fails to have that "Hard man" touch that Statham has.

    I'm not long back from seeing Skyfall, as it happens.

    And I thought it was pretty bloody epic!

    Considerable improvement over Quantum of Solace, I thought, with some great nods to the originals.

    May well try and catch it on the big screen again soon!

    film about a squad of US soldiers as part of the anti WMD battalion in Iraq, trying to locate one of Saddam's Iraqi army general's to uncover the truth about the WMD program, interesting twist when the US Spec ops enter and start killing off the iraqi generals "colleagues"

    i did miss the first 20 minutes however

    7/10 from what i did see

    definitely worth a watch

    Derren Brown's Apocalypse
    2 part documentary
    god damn that had me hooked, very interesting indeed, i was on the edge of my seat/bed cringing at how good it was, excellent effort

    10/10 for that
