Another one I saw this week:

Salt - 6/10

Generic action film made better by Angelina Jolie not having to get her rack on screen every five minutes and doing some half-decent acting/action scenes. Pretty enjoyable, if predictable spy stuff. Definitely worth a watch for some of the slick action.
Sorry I can't agree. The 'plot' just made me cringe. There were some decent action scenes I admit but I was not caring enough to pay that much attention.

Gets a 4/10 from me.

Now, Robin Hood, Men in Tights!

That's 7/10 all over. Retro lols. Very stupid and lots of stuff I'd never noticed before in the script. They even said "see you in #2" which never happened hahaha. Also, it has a Patrick Stewart cameo in it who does an English accent then suddenly goes Scottish and a Maid Marrian nip-slip near the end! It was a kids movie!

Expendables - 5-6/10

Needs better one-liners to be a good action movie. These were terrible. Fighting was pretty good but that's ALL it is. It might as well just be called a UFC movie, but with guns. I also didn't realise how much Arnie sounds like he's had a lobotomy.

Just watched shooter

8/10

Solid movie, which is something I didn't expect at all.

What I expected even less is how hot Kate Mara is

holy crap

Very, very funny. Plot gets in the way by the end but still hilarious. Wahlberg is especially awesome it. Would definitely go see it again right now.

So glad i didn't watch this at the cinema, can't work out what all the fuss was about personally. And it's certainly not worth going back to the cinema to watch the extended 3d edition either.

We've got a pile of cash, a shitload of this stinking weed ...and a traffic warden.
What are we doing with a traffic warden?

Love that film.

What a wonderful thread this is!

Allow me to add my 0.002 cents:

Movie: Machete
Rating: 7/10
Reason: a very enjoyable bit of nonsense. Perfect for a background movie or watching with a few mates while discussing other stuff. Also: does exactly what it says on the tin: awesome mexican slaughters people with awesomesauce and a machete. You pretty much know what you will get with Robert Rodriguez

Movie: Salt
rating: 5/10
Reason: i had high hopes for this movie, and the beginning felt like a good build-up to a bourne-esque ending, and then after she saved the russian guy the whole movie just flatlined for me. It wasn't terrible, but there were no suprises, and the whole thing just was a big /care for me. It wasn't BAD though, just never really bothered to be any good.

Movie: The Expendables
Rating: 1/10
Reason: what a load of drizzle. It's clear that Stallone wrote and directed this, because the whole movie felt like listening to him talk. I can't really seem to think of a single moment in this movie where i was actually entertained.

The real reccomendation for you all:

Movie: Perfume: Story of a Murderer
Rating: 10/10
Reason: This is a movie about smell. That seems a bit absurd, but somehow, the movie uses the fact that you can hear and see a movie, but never smell it, to it's advantage. In much the same way that a book gives you the word "splendour" and you are free to imagine wonderful things, this movie wields sound and visuals and even plot to make your mind imagine beautiful smells.
It's well-acted, well-narrated, has a fantastic soundtrack and some really tasty redheads (if i was a superhero, redheads would be my weakness ).
Whatever you do, do NOT watch a trailer before you decide to watch this. The trailers ruin it all. Just fegging watch it!
EDIT: And despite what you might thin from the name, this is NOT a girly movie. It actually equires quite a bit of stomach to watch now and then

Movie: Scott Pilgrim vs The World
Rating: 8/10
Reason: A very funny and enjoyable film with plenty of memorable moments. Not an all time classic, but definately one to watch if you want a good dose of comedy and some over the top action. Plus Ramona (played by Mary Elizabeth Winstead) made me fall in love because she is so cool.

Description in one sentence: "Huge worms with teeth come out of people arses"

I've always liked this film. It's a Steven King so I will be buying the book if I can find it anywhere. It's 3 from Amazon at the moment. Well worth it in my opinion.

Wall Street 2

Fair acting from Mr. Beef, though I couldn't help laughing at some scenes.. There was a scene where a dead character is shown as a reflection in a mirror, that was awful. Story was engaging until the end, when the entire plot was saved by something ridiculous and the characters really shouldn't have accepted it. Haven't seen the original.

(Everyone looked tired and worn out, which works for the main guys, but the main girl looked like she just finished crying before every scene, it was a bit much.)

Would've been 7/10 if it had a sad ending, 5/10 as is.

Anyone else looking forward to the Facebook movie?

Watched Resident Evil 4 the week before last. I enjoyed it but I think that's only because I'm a big fan of Resi, the plot was a bit weak though the action was solid.
Saw The Other Guys last week; I loved it. The tuna and lion piece of dialogue is priceless, those who have seen it will know what I mean!
Also saw The Town yesterday; seems relatively unknown but it was No. 1 in the US chart last week and I can see why, very good film.
