    Final Destination 5 - Really good. Possibly the best since the original, with lots of little touches fererring to the other films, like the restaurant being the US branch of the one in Paris from the original, or the picture of one of the cast at the rollercoaster. Much darker than the last one, and no saving of an entire bleeding cinema full of people without comment.

    The twist at the end is great too.

    And I know the question you're wanting to ask - yes the deaths are both gruesome and original. At least one is completely out of nowhere, and they're rarely what you think they'll be.

    Apparently, if this is successful, there will be back to back sequels made.

    Faster - good, but once it becomes obvious who the main villain is it takes a bit to long to get there.

    Super 8
    Good beginning, middle portion started to drag, the third act was terrible. Horrible ending. Cloverfield for kids.

    Rise of the Planet of the Apes
    Good story, excellent CGI. The trailer is pretty much a 2-minute summary of the film though.

    Cowboys & Aliens

    I was waiting a year for this because it's motherfunking Cowboys and Aliens going to the same dance. Aliens looked like some computer shooting game but was an overall fun film to watch.

    Conan the Barbarian- I had heard nothing but bad reports about this but came away enjoying it a lot, this Conan was a bit more Suave than Arnies Conan as well

    The Ward- shite

    FrightNight- not to bad, over all I think I still prefer the original but that might just be nostalgia.

    Star Wars on Blu-ray...just...WOW!

    I saw this when I was a kid and the prints were new in 78, but this is seriously crisp. You can even see Prowse's eyes through the mask and the red tint in Vader's eye sockets. The Tatooine sunset is just stunning as well.

    When done right - Airplane, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, The Naked Gun - they are excellent, but it's just rare they are done well at all. Even Mel Brooks and the Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker team lost it eventually, and they really were the masters

    American Pie: Beta House- meh........but it did have loads of tits Very Happy

    X-Men: First Class:- very good, it may have taken me a while to get around to watching it but it was worth the wait. James McAvoy is great as Xavier and I agree with all the hype around Fassbender after this

    Drive- Excellent stuff, probably the best movie I've seen this year, although I haven't seen much. Gosling is fantastic as well as Albert Brooks. I'm surprised it was as good, the trailers made it look like your run-of-the-mill action flick, but the reviews for it were fantastic. Highly recommended.

    Moneyball- Great. I'm also a baseball nut, so I'm a bit biased. I loved the idea of highlighting a baseball team with a low budget just because a lot of people think of the high budgets being successful (Yankees, Red Sox, Phillies). I could've done without the last ten minutes, and a useless piece of information towards the end, but overall, great.

    Warrior- Awesome. I'm quickly becoming a Tom Hardy fan, and Edgerton was great, as well. But it's really Nick Nolte who holds this together, and I'm rooting for him to score an Oscar nomination, and if he does get nominated, I'm rooting for him to win. A truly heartbreaking performance. The MMA scenes were shot very well, too.

    I thought Drive was phenomenal too. One of the best soundtracks I've ever heard for a movie.

    Warrior was quite enjoyable, and I agree about the performances and Nolte's potential oscar nod, but I thought it was too cliched and formulaic for my liking.

    The Adjustment Bureau
    I enjoyed this a lot, and I'd recommend it to most people. But as for the tagline "It's like Bourne meets Inception", er, no, it's not. The only similarities between this and the Bourne movies, in my opinion, are that they have Matt Damon are the lead male role and that's about it. But then again, it seems like anything Matt Damon is in these days is described as "Bourne meets (insert another film name here)".

    Blind Flight- excellent film about 2 men, one English and one Irish, held hostage in Lebanon during that countries civil war. I always remember my parents talking about Brian Keenan and even saw clips of him on TV but this film has given me the inspiration to read his autobiography which has been in our house for years

    50/50 - Excellent! Great performance from Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and this does a great job of mixing comedy with drama, without going too dark or too stupid.

    The Tree of Life - Pretty good but maybe not as good as I was expecting. It's one of the few movies where you have everything you need for a good film (acting, direction, writing, cinematogrpahy), but I just couldn't get into it. Pitt's performance was really good, though, I preferred him in this over Moneyball.
