Not bad. I have to admit im not a big fan of these old style (reservoir dogs) types of films, but this was OK. Nice to see Danny Trejo in a starring role. He often plays the bad guy sub-villain, and here he did a great job. Quite a few corny gags that didn't suit, and the bit with the strimmer, was im sorry to say just silly :p Not a waste of time to watch, but I very much doubt I will watch this again. I am very suprised De Niro was in this, Jessica Alba at an all time low as well I guess, and the film suited Segal, although his part was very insignificant. This film maybe to many peoples taste, but I give it 6 out of 10.

Get Him To The Greek

Oh dear. Another comedy that im afraid did not hit my funny bone. Definitely a giggle here and there, but a lot of the humour wasn't for me. I have to say I did enjoy the film, such a shame that almost the entirety of the film is the 2 main characters simply getting drunk and high. Now "HOW HIGH" was a far better and funnier film, along the same lines. Russell Brand was excellent, Jonah Hill simply wasn't able to shine. A mediocre film you may watch once, and il be generous by giving it 6 out of 10.

Resident Evil Afterlife

Yay I thought as I sat down in my seat. Can't wait. OMG I thought after about 15 minutes. Isn't this a Resi Evil film. Where on earth are all the special effects and gruesome creatures. Don't get me wrong, directing is great, effects are ok, and the whole movie was enjoyable, but, but, but. Someone forgot the nasties. A severe lack of any real gory action. And what suspense. The music completely let down the movie as well, losing it any credibility as suspenseful and action packed. Dear oh dear. What annoys me is I have the other on DVD, but there is no way I shall buy this, so collection ruined. Milla was great as usual, and I loved the speeding bullet effects towards the end, but sadly the only decent monster effects were a couple of peeps, and a couple of head-splitting dogs. 6 out of 10 because they kept Milla Jovovich and she was ace, but if there is another, I may completely skip it at the cinema after this poor attempt.



Not sure about this one. Very interesting the first %90 of the film, building up the relationship between Dren and her, um, parents. But blimey did it drag for me. Way way too long. And then the actual alieny action bits only lasted about 15 minutes right at the end. I doubt very much I shall watch this film again. Had I wanted to watch a family type of film I would rate this movie higher. But with an alien in it, I wanted a lot more.
I guess you do need to watch this at least once, but rent, do not buy as you will probably never watch it again. 5 out of 10 only unfortunately.


Shrek Forever After

Wow yes im behind the times. Only just been and taken the kids to see this one at a local little cinema. I have to say the originality of Shrek is still there. Brilliant film for all the family and one I most certainly will purchase on DVD when it arrives.
8 out of 10 from me, but a definite 10 out of 10 from the kids.


Vampires Suck

I so hate the actual Twilight films I though this would be great. Boy was I wrong. Maybe it did not appeal to my sence of humour but I thought it was simply a stupid film. Don't think I laughed once. If you want comedy don't watch this. If on the other hand you like really dumb stupid humour maybe this is for you.
A very low 2 out of 10 from me. I give it 2 because at least the characters were actually quite similar to the real ones.

Iron Man 2

Finally out on DVD. I love these good old action films. I hear theres a 3rd Ironman in production, and I hope thats true. The action is non-stop in this one, and the effects are awesome. Robert Downey Jr is excellent as always, but im sorry to say, I really did not like Scarlett Johansson. The armour that controls electricty was a brilliant idea, and the whip is one serious piece of kit. All in all a seriously good bit of fun, and not to be missed. Definately a 10 out of 10 for me.

Twilight Eclipse

Yawn. These Twilight films bore the hell outta me. But my 2 daughters love them. I honestly cannot see what there is that people like. Don't get me wrong, I love vampire films, but vampires are EVIL. Think this is all a bit too silly for me personally. My rating is 2 out of 10, but my daughters say 10 out of 10. Funnily my 2 boys agree with my opinion. Maybe this is one of those female only films heh.


Toy Story 3

Well only my kids watched this and their personal review is: BRILLIANT.
