    Fun little comedy about a group of twenty-something employees in an independent record shop. Hadn't seen it in at least a decade - forgot how good it was!

    Skyfall.
    Overhyped mediocre `Bond` with an unconvincing baddy, unconvincing settings, unconvincing effects and an unconvincing ending. Saucy ladies though.

    Red tails for me Jim, was quite a let down, i agree the idea behind the film is a good thing, but it didnt really show as much as id expected in the film, i felt it was just another CGI heavy unrealistic aircraft film, (IE the p51 that flips on its axis rather than actually flying like an aircraft normally does) i have met one of the original founding members of the Tuskeegee airmen (and his wife mildred, first black female pilot i believe) and listened to some of his stories, so i was expecting a lot more from the film in all honesty

    Hi Scott, At least it was a "True" story, Yep, I agree with the CGI and the P51, but if you just ignore those faults, and concentrate on what the story was about, then it was not all bad.
    Show me any film, and I bet I could find some fault with it,

    Skyfall.

    Strange movie. Surprisingly static, even the action. The camera man I read loved b/w still photos. The story weird, hangs in the air, doesn't make an awful lot of sense, and is not terribly coherent. What's that stupid yellow thing on top of Bardem?? Still don't like Mr. Craig as Bond.

    Avengers Assemble

    Meh. Some funny bits, but mostly a lot of yawn-inspiring action sequences. The giant flying space turds were the most yawnsome of the lot.

    Never Say Never Again

    The "unofficial" Sean Connery Bond film. Not bad, really. Liked the nods to the fact that Connery was getting on a bit to be playing such a physical role again. Not sure whether or not it was better than Thunderball, though!

    Noticed a DVD titled 'Cockneys v. Zombies' in my local Morrisons - is it as crappy as it sounds, or is it so awful it's good ? Anybody seen it?

    I've heard it's not as bad as it sounds. Not as bad as Strippers Vs. Werewolves, by any means!

    The Living Daylights

    Dalton's first outing as 007 - not bad. Good fun, great gadgets and fight sequences - especially the fight on the Hercules at the end (although the close-ups clearly show a C-123!).

    Licence to Kill

    Bond goes rogue in the hunt for revenge against the bad-ass drug dealer who maimed his best friend. Great stuff - Robert Davi is a great villain in this one.

    Thumbs up

    See No Evil, Hear No Evil...

    1989 comedy film directed by Arthur Hiller and produced by Marvin Worth. It stars Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder.

    Seen it many times but it's a classic.

    The Road - John Hillcoat. Finally got to see this extraordinary, spare, nihilistic film. Brilliant! But, I understand, a very toned down adaptation of the book!!

    Superman

    On blu-ray. Still a great film, but the blu-ray does tend to show up some of the flaws quite badly. 8/10

    Sleepy Hollow

    Tim Burton's Gothic horror. Great fun. 7/10

    Jaws

    On blu-ray. This is the restored version that was shown in cinemas in June. Still as awesome as ever. 10/10

    Finding Nemo

    My long time favourite Pixar movie, only to be replaced by....

    Up!

    Which held the top spot for quite a while, too, until....

    Brave

    Still good after the third or fourth time...!

    Skyfall x 2

    Second best Bond film ever, after Casino Royale. Best Bond ever, no question - Craig is the man.

    Gambit

    Fun matinee, packed with giggles and laughs. Not spectacular though, I might advise others to wait for it to appear on DVD

    The Whisperers 1967

    I can't believe that such a wonderful "kitchen sink drama" can have passed me by for so long, but I hadn't even heard of this film a week ago.

    Fantastic performance by Dame Edith Evans as the paranoid and lonely old lady, living in poverty and near squalor, dependant upon the National Assistance Board for new shoes "these let the rain in, you see", fantasizing about the money which will one day come to her. Great support from Eric Portman as her reluctantly returning husband (the Welfare twists his arm) and Ronald Fraser as the dodgy son.

    Shot in black and white, amongst the grimy clearance areas of mid-1960s Oldham, making it very local and special to me.

    Definitely a keeper!

    Star Trek (2009)

    Great fun, and a great reboot of the series. Can't wait to see what the second installment has to offer!

    Salem's Lot

    OK, technically a mini-series, this is based on a book by Stephen King. A writer moves back to his home town, only to discover a lot of weird goings-on, centering around a house at the edge of town. Cue James Mason and a Nosferatu-esque Kurt Barlow.

    Pretty good, but fairly gore- and scare-light. Well, for me, anyway!

    21 Jump Street

    Genuinely very funny revamp of the 1980s US cop drama series.

    The Sitter

    Jonah Hill again in this one, which was a lot better than I thought it would be.

    Cross of Honour

    Based on the true story of a German bomber crew shot down over Norway by a FAA fighter, with both crews eventually finding a cabin high in the mountains in which to try and survive, forming an unlikely friendship in the process. Not bad at all, actually.

    Team America - World Police

    Hadn't seen this in years - still hysterically funny! "You are WORTHRESS, AREC BARDWIN!"

    The Dawn Patrol (1938 version)

    Starring Errol Flynn, Basil Rathbone, and David Niven as Royal Flying Corps fighter pilots on the Western Front in World War I.

    Still hugely watchable and enjoyable, although the fact that it was filmed amid the barren hills of (presumably) California makes it a little less believable at times.

    I'm surprised that Hollywood filmed it as a British Squadron, rather than one made up of American flyers - perhaps the inevitability of war in Europe had something to do with the decision?

    Gotta love a rotary engine - brrrp, brrrp, brrrp!

    The Man from Snowy River

    Epic Australian adventure film, starring a young Tom Burlinson (otherwise better known as "Fanny" Barton in Piece of Cake).

    Die Another Day

    The worst of the Pierce Brosnan Bond films, the film is still watchable, but it feels like a giant video game at times.

    Kill Bill Vol.1

    One of only two Tarantino films I can watch without feeling physically violent towards the man. The other being Vol.2.
