    Wanted
    Wasn't bad. Kept me entertained for a couple of hours, which is the main thing I guess.

    Wasn't bad, certainly isn't the weakest in the series, but really can't see where the story's going to lead to now. Guess we wait til next Hallowe'en and find out.

    Yeah it wasnt too bad either! not the goriest of the lot which is good, told more of a story, the ending was sad though... as I liked him... awww

    But I think the 6th and probably last one will see
    Spoiler:
    Hoffmann
    being tested and eventually killed in a rather gruesome way at the end, probably by Jill.

    I was thinking that too or that they both carry on Jigsaw's work. Anyone else watch Saw and think that Hoffman looked like Jim Carver from The Bill or was that just me?

    Had some free time on my hands to watched a couple of movies to see if I could "get" what's so fantastic about them.

    Billy Elliot - Nope, still don't get it. Predictable linear plot and outside of Julie Walters and the Dad the acting is sub par. My mum loves it as she's a 6th generation geordie. Maybe I'm too young to understand it. In any case, it's not as dreadful as the musical which is probably the worst thing I've ever seen on a stage after Dirty Dancing.

    Lost in Transation - nope, still plotless drivel and about as funny as a fart in a broken lift.

    Yeah maybe, but I can see Hoffmann meeting a rather nasty end in the 6th film!!! pretty cool bad guy though the look he gave at the end of the film made you go "you evil bastard!"

    Carver??? hmmm think that may just be you. hehe

    Saw The Forgotten.

    Was better than average, but yet another one that had a poor ending. Well built up but the finish just didn't feel right tbh.

    Halloween (2007) ***
    First half was pretty good, but it dragged on too much in the second half and lacked any real suspense.

    Quantum of Solace: Daniel Craig is brilliant in QOS. Turning Bond into a right bad-ass, action packed from start to finish. I look forward to his next 007 flick if this and Casino Royale are any indication. Was glad to see Jeffrey Wright back as Felix Leiter.

    Probably agree with everything you said...except the praise for Casino Royale. I grew up during the Roger Moore years and despite I have to say that I have never been as disappointed by a Bond film as I was by that (and, obviously Die Another Day - that was just an abortion of a film all round). For me CR has little plot, little to grab the interest and very little in the way of iconic moments.

    QoS...once you get past the fact that you know the scriptwriter was watching Bourne when he wrote the opening chase, and that Gemma Arterton was, for me, not just Christmas Jones bad, but Holly Goodnight bad, it was much more a bond film. And a damn good one

    Quantum of Solace

    Good action scenes, but apart from that, was a very dire movie and got bored after an hour.

    I actually quite enjoyed Quantum Of Solace. Having said that, I spent a fair bit of the film trying to keep track of who was dealing with who and who was double crossing who. And by the time I managed to figure something out, there were many explosions going off on-screen. Will have to see it again.

    Trainspotting
    Is definitely a film I can watch time and again without becoming bored of. Was slightly distracting watching it with my girlfriend who's doing a work placement in a drug rehab clinic and she kept pointing things out that had little or no relevance to the film.

    Didn't enjoy it. The first 5 mins were good but after that it got tiresome.

    American Gangster
    Very good. Might've been a tad too long, though I did watch the extended version so it's my own fault really.

    Dark City

    How the hell did it take me so long to see this movie? In one word, amazing. If you haven't seen it, see it now. But make sure it's the Directors Cut and not the original version.

    W

    I would have preferred something that wasn't so on the fence. Really you won't walk away from this movie with any different opinion of Bush, but I did enjoy the film nontheless. While Brolin is amazing in the role, its really Dreyfuss as Cheney and Jeffrey Wright as Powell that really steal the show.

    Hunger

    Didn't cover as much of the strike as I would have liked. For instance, the movie focuses only on Bobby Sands during the strike, almost to a point where the viewer thinks only he is on strike. Despite this though the movie is excellent. Very rough and brutal at times. Fassenbenders performance does a serious amount of justice to Sands sacrifice.

    Quantum of Solace

    Major step down from Casino Royale. I'm loving the new dark Bond, but don't like how the movie went back to the old formulaic bond movie style. The reason I loved Casino Royale so much was that it was so unlike any other Bond film. But it was pretty decent nontheless. Beats out the Brosnan movies by a mile, except Goldeneye.

    Pride and Glory

    Very forgetable and nothing I haven't seen before. But it is quite enjoyable all the same. Decent story, but its the performances that carry the movie. Farrell and Emmerich are particularly good, though Norton is disappointing and seems to keep playing every character the same way. Worth a watch though.

    I don't want to waste cinema money seeing this as I don't see how a film taken from Max Payne could be any good, even if it was lifted word for word. The whole fun of Max Payne was that it was so ridiculously over the top in its structure and portrayal. No film could capture that.

    Zach and Miri Make A Porno

    Haven't laughed as hard in months - seriously, if you don't mind something near to the knuckle, this is definately a great film.

    Right from the first few shots of the film (a generic street shot gone wrong, a coffee maker being switched on), you know you're getting a KS movie. But it never feels poorly shot - yes, it uses static camera shots, yes, there are multiple two-shots, but there's so much more happening on screen at times than Smith usually manages, from constant cock-ups by his "crew" to the surprisingly physical porn scenes. Apart from an ending that feels both rushed and slightly forced, the script and pace is great.

    Banks is great (I know it was written for Rosario Dawson, but just couldn't see it working for her) and Rogen is the most watchable I've ever seen him. Seeing Jeff Anderson as a positive guy is totally different to his Randall, but he pulls it off brilliantly - definately has his shit covered Laughing . Mewes was brilliantly OTT, but lets just say that you can have too much of him. Craig Robinson was hilariously laid back in his delivery, but was so spot on for that character. Traci Lords - well, you kn ow exactly what you're gonna get there, but lets just say that Katie Morgan - well - WOW! She'll never win an oscar, but was cast so well and packaged (and frequently unpackaged) so beautifully.

    Damn good film!

    I think that talentless, one-facial-expression, fat bearded c**t Seth Rogen should be hung by his buster browns for his juvenile shite films... but each to their own.

    Like I said, this is the most watchable I've ever seen him. Doens't mean I've really liked his other stuff. He is one of those "I have a niche" (aka I can only play one character) actors, but he actually does seem to stretch it this time

    Last night I watched

    School Of Rock
    I think I enjoyed this more last night than when it first came out. Could watch this movie a few times I reckon before it would start to bore me.

    Underworld Evolution
    This one was more my flatmates choice than mine, I was just being lazy and stayed sat in front of the TV. Didn't like this one as much as the first. Was probably just an excuse for Len Wiseman to have his wife dressed in a PVC catsuit for many hours a day purely for his own pleasure.
