    I'd give this 4/10, saved only by Kieron Culkin's camp comedy.

    Wolfman
    7/10
    Good film and nice retake on the old style of man x wolf. However it is a bit drawn out in some aprts, but overall enjoyable!

    As long as your watching them with a girl, it's not so bad.

    Back to The Future in an Omniplex digital screen. Oh what a treat... The big screen, the awesome audio and a theater full of people make such a difference!

    Shooter
    8/10
    Really like this film, Mark Wahlberg plays a decent role.

    Star Trek (2009)
    8/10
    Most "trekkers" really hate this film and if they could they would not just spit but jump up and down singing Ring-a-ring-a-roses on its grave. However, i like it, great space movie.

    Indiana Jones and the Kingdom
    7/10
    Again, take it as it is. A film, ignore the past ones and you've got yourself a half decent film.

    The Jawel Of the Nile.
    4/10
    Great after dinner light film. Perfect 80's Soundtrack, reminds me a lot of Masters of the Universe ( the soundtrack ). Only watch if you like bad acting and rubbish graphics.

    Prince of Persia - The sands of time
    Rating: 5/10
    Comment: So I didn't like the games since Sands of Time. I have mates who did, though. I know that the prince looked somewhat like he does in game. But really, the only reason to watch this would be to see Ghandi be the bad guy, and some cool athletics but the "Hassansin" or WTF ever they were called. Add to that the fact that brokeback-heartthrob plays the prince, the princess is not SUPER hot, endless things they do in spite of saying "This would not work" 20 minutes earlier... just generally "MEH". You want Swords n Sorcery watch Solomon Kane. This one is about as good as Clash of the Shiteans. Except that it's SLIGHTLY cooler.

    The Proposition

    7/10

    Great story and acting but there was something missing that I can't put my finger on.

    Last thing I went to see at the pictures was Scott Pilgrim, and it was f**king epic.
    Easily 8/10 for all of the deep seating gaming <3

    I mainly watch anime though, just finished FMA, started FMA:B and also, Fairy Tail

    saw The Other Guys last night - defo 7/10, would be 8 if it wasn't for mark wahlberg's piss poor performance, there are so many other actors that could have partnered will ferrell 100 times better. Had me in stitches though, some great one liners.

    The Informant!

    7/10

    Yes it's a bit old but I just got round to watching it. Really enjoyed the storyline, was quite unpredictable throughout which kept me interested. Matt Damon's performance was really good as well. Plus points for the painfully cool early 90s supercars featured :D

    Toy Sotry 3 - 9/10

    I grew up on the first 2, and this third instalment didn't disappoint. The again, I honestly can't name one Pixar film I didn't enjoy watching.

    Mulholland Drive.
    7/10

    Not a bad film, just a tiny bit too pretentiously artsy for my taste. It weirds you out and loses pace on occasion, but on the whole, I found the story interesting enough and the actors appetisng enough to keep watching :)

    Book of Eli - 5/10.

    I admit I went into the film expecting something really good. As soon as I realised it was
    god squad
    , I really turned off the plot and it sort of ruined it for me. I was far more interested in post-apocalypse wasteland and whether fallout 3 had it right...!
