Robin Hood (2010)

Yay finally out on DVD. I loved Russell Crowe's performance in this film. An absolutely awesome film, you should not miss this. If you watch one film this week, watch this one. Acting is brilliant, directing is brilliant, infact the only thing not brilliant about it, is the fact its not longer :p Great for kids and adults alike, although I should say teens.

Oh Ashton is such a great actor who can do any role given. This film is awesome, for adults and children alike. A really weird twisted film this one, the plot that is heh. A quick wedding, and an ex-assassin on the run from being assassinated himself, together with his new wife. The film is full of fun and surprises, and is a great roller-coaster of a ride. Great for all the family, this film is a must-watch and because of that I give this a massive 10 out of 10.


Piranha 3D

Can it be, a remake better than the original. Well its true. These new piranha are dead vicious lol, And not only that the women are well fitter too. Kelly Brook, ooooooooooohhhh, nice figure. OK ok, its not original, but it bloody well done, and great watching. I can't wait for the next one, after all, with the ending on this one, there has to be a next one. I was impressed by the direction of Alexandre Aja, whom I remember from that late great film Mirrors. Can't give much of the plot away, but people get eaten, boats breakdown surrounded by piranha, and people get stranded. Completely typical of this type of film. Very well put together and wonderful to watch. For me an 8 out of 10. P.S Not one for the kids :D


The Other Guys

Darn was I disappointed when Dwayne Johnson was only temporarily in the film. After tooth fairy I was looking forwards to another silly film with him. BUT its not all bad. I really did enjoy the film. The start was absolutely brilliant, but it went downhill after that, ie once the 2 hardmen cops were killed off comically. Will Ferrell as always was excellent, but Mark Wahlberg really suprised me. I honestly think he played the part excellently, I didn't think he could do the comedy angle, but he pulled it off first-rate. I do have to say I enjoyed Cop-Out more, but this is an enjoyable romp. Keaton is definitely showing his age here, and im sad to say, I did not enjoy his performance at all. Il give this movie 6 out of 10.

Furry Vengeance

Excellent family film this one. Brendan Fraser as comical as ever. Yet to watch a Fraser film I didn't like. OK so not the funniest film, and entirely predictable, but the spoofs and goofs were not too far in-between, and the film kept me amused all the way through. My kids stayed all the way through as well, so a thumbs up from them. I would actually recommend buying this film and from me its a 7 out of 10.


Grown Ups

What a really stupid film heh. Really funny stupid. I have to say I really did enjoy watching this film. Adam Sandler was brilliant as always.
Be aware though thats its as heartwarming as it is funny. Its not a real comedy as such. Its actually a good film to watch with the missus/gf. Enjoy it because we did.

What a weird film. Can't say much more lol as I actually gave up watching it.


Nanny McPhee And The Big Bang

Loved the first and loved the second. My kids love both of them too. Yeah it probably more a 5-12 year olds cup of tea, but its still a great family movie. I bought this on dvd as its a definite classic that needs adding to the collection. I may never watch it again, but I know it will still bring my children many more hours of entertainment for years to come.


Prince Of Persia The Sands Of Time

Definitely a seriously over-hyped film, but it really is brilliant, least I think so. Plot is great, acting is great, and all in all an excellent film. I do think there were quite a few times where there could have been some more exciting action, but the action never stopped long enough, for me to contemplate giving up on the film. The only let down was the variety and quality of the CGI. Not a biggie, but oh so much more could have been done at the end.
And yes the end was one big let-down for me. Only going to give this an 8 out of 10 because I was seriously disappointed with the ending.


Hot Tub Time Machine

Still a great film. Rented this out on dvd last night and its just as good as when I went to the cinema. Brilliant acting, and brilliant casting. Not side-splittingly funny, but a great laugh with lots of innuendos, and the twist in the film was great. Such a unique film to be honest, as I have never seen a film with such a storyline. My kids didn't understand the humour, 15+ really, but I loved every minute. Definitely a 10 out of 10 from myself. If you don't agree just say so.


Knight And Day

Not a bad film at all. Lil ol Tom Cruise was excellent as Roy Miller, the secret agent, trying to stay alive. Lacking in the action department I felt, and there was little chemistry between Cruise and Diaz. All in all a great romp, but a different leading lady would have made all the difference. Sadly a 6 out of 10, and the kids got bored after about 10 minutes :p


The Sorcerer's Apprentice

I really enjoyed this movie. I do like Nicholas Cage, and he really did the trick in this movie. Jay Baruchel(Shes Out Of Your League) was also excellent. All in all a great family movie, and 1 for all to enjoy. Gotta be at least 8 out of 10 from me. My kids loved it too, so big thumbs up from them.



I only mention this film because I thought it was SOOOO BAD. Hopefully someone will disagree with me.

The Expendables

What a let down. Was looking forwards to Arnie being in a film again, and all he had was a walk on part. BAH. Film itself was not bad, but seriously lacking in action, what wiv all them hard guys in it. Why WWF star Steve Austin was in it god only knows, to make the names I guess. And Jet LI, I feel sorry for the guy, he was made to look useless tbh. He is amazing normally, and in this film there were too many stars and so little they were allowed to do. Statham and Stalone were the stars, as only they had more than about 10mins of acting in the film pffft. All in all not a bad film, but an ACTION film, nope, a standard action movie with actually less action than even The Last Action Hero lol. Well over-hyped. I give it 5 out of 10, and no I won't be buying this one on dvd.

Kids loved this film. Cough cough yes im a big kid :)  Ok ok its not original or great, but its an excellent family film. Due out on bluray soon, so am gonna definitely buy it, if not at least to get some peace from the kids. Personally I think its gotta be a 7 out of 10, but the kids say 11 hehe................Make up your own mind and see if you agree with your kids.



Wheres Arnie when you need him...........How the hell could someone cast Adrien Brody in the lead part. My god hes just so not big n muscley.   May as well have put good ole Jaden Smith in there. An action film full of wimps really. Film wasn't original, but was well put together and the effects were adequate. Obviously the film company spent most of the money on B grade actors. Don't get me wrong tho, Brody is a good actor in my book, just this film really didn't suit him well.
Worth a watch again, id say rental, not worth buying tbh. But its my own opinion of course. If you would buy this when it comes out on dvd then feel free to leave a comment.


The Karate Kid (2010)

Wow. I actually walked out watching this one. I was sooooooo bored. The film takes near 45 mins to even start. Who cares the kid(wow isn't Will Smiths son skinny lol), doesn't want to move to China. Damn film took so long before the training started, I forgot it was a kung-fu film. And the action. Did I blink? I missed it. Oh wait, maybe I had already walked out. Can't say much more, getting tired even thinking about this film ZzZzZzzzzzzzzzzzz.


The A-Team

What a pile of rubbish. Sorry folks but there is absolutely no comparison between this and the original. Quinton Jackson AKA BA Barakus is simply not in the same league a Mr T. Liam Neeson in my mind simply does not suit a comedic role, and seeing as he didn't appear to smile at all, you can see why. The film itself was not too bad, just very poor and misplaced casting. Worth a watch if you didn't watch the original series as it is quite fun. Steer well clear if you loved the original.



Oh what an awesome film. Went to watch it last night. I have to say I have loved Angelina Jolie ever since Tombraider and she just seems to get better and better. Miss this film at your peril.Oh and yeah, the twist at the end really wasn't a big suprise was it. And please Angelina dear, please do not go blonde again, she looked haggered and withdrawn. Black suits her deffo I think.
