        Watched 'Shoot em up' the other day...... what a truly superb film, no storyline to speak of but with the kind of gunplay that hasn'e been seen since the John Woo classics who cares ;D

        Not much else I can say about the film as I've covered it all....... storyline is around a baby that the bad guys want and Clive Owen protects

        Popcorn entertainment at it's very best

          Watched Norbit on Wednesday night......funny one really!!!!

          It isn't a conventional Eddie Murphy comedy with laugh out loud moments, it is more of a compassion comedy whereas you feel sorry for the main character instead of laughing at what is happening to him.

          Not a film to buy, but worth a rent.

            Finally got round to watching Hot Fuzz t'other day, after missing it at the cinema. It's taken even longer because my gf didn't want to see it, so it wasn't a priority rental as it was her account. Not anymore though!

            Anyway, it wasn't quite as good as I thought it was going to be. Don't get me wrong, it's still better than most of what hollywood churns out but it was just missing that 'edge' that they nailed so well in Shaun of the Dead and previously in the Spaced series. I love these guys but, it just didn't work as well as it must have looked on paper.

            Worth a watch though if you haven't seen it yet, the silly-ness is infectious.

              Mr Brooks..... the first Kevin costner film that I was actually able to watch and enjoy since the untouchables. A great little film about a serial killer, and the trick of the film is you actually like him ;D definately worth a rent

                Iron Man has been seen ;D

                If anyone feared that this film would be chessy..... fear no longer, it's like Marvel took notice of what was done in Batman Begins and tried to replicate that feel for their own billionaire.... this is Marvels first solely produced film, and it shows, Iron Man sticks so close to the comics you can just tell there was no whiny producer whoi was looking to make the film appeal to the masses.
                The entire cast is great and held together very well by Robert Downey Jr who is on top form. In short... you should see this film, not just as a stop gap till the dark knight is released but to enjoy a marvel hero movie done by the very people who created the comic.

                I give it 10 out of 10......... and don't forget to stay till the end of the credits

                  Went to see the film on Sunday and must agree dude....though not sure about the 10 out of 10 :-\

                  Film was lacking in a few departments but Robert Downey Jnr was fantastic as Tony Stark and made the whole thing worthwhile. They are already making a second which as i understand will be a little more full on.

                  The action scenes were fantastically scripted........but the end battle was a slight disappointment. Marvel did themselves proud with this one as it is one of the best Movie/Comic releases i have seen to date.

                    Saw Resident Evil Extinction at the weekend.

                    What can i say....what a disappointment....again. I like the Resident Evil films....although to like them you must pretend that they are not Resident Evil films.......which kind of deifies the point really.

                    The only good thing i could find was Milla Jovovic's skin.....never seen skin so smooth....this was on Blu-ray mind....so not sure if the same impact will be had on DVD :-\

                        I saw IRON MAN last night. What a fantastically fun film. Well-written and performed - Robert Downy Jr. turning in another great performance, the casting was spot on in this film - and genuinely entertaining. I had a similar feeling when watching Transformers for the first time, an almost giggly joy that made me feel 8 again! The CGI (done by the same company as Transformers) is seamless, they out-did themselves on this one.

                        I admit to not being well-versed on most of the comic books origins or story-arcs but this film has set up a lot of potential for the second, which, as system shock has mentioned, has already been confirmed for 2010.

                        I see your point about the end battle System, but I quite liked it's short and to the point approach. What else did you find lacking out of curiosity?

                        I highly recommend it and would score it 9 out of 10.

                          To be honest with you Amtiskaw, I didn't find the film disappointing in many departments really, and thoroughly enjoyed most of it.........actually so much that at one point forgot I was even in the cinema.....mesmerized. The one thing was just like any other movie, how there never see who the bad guy actually is. Obadiah Stane at a very early stage admits to selling these weapons to terrorists.....not to obvious :-\

                          But no....it was a great thrill to watch....the CGI stunning......and again Robert Downey Jnr was fantastic.

                          The question you have to answer now is: Would the film have been as good without Robert Downey Jnr.? Tough one

                            went to see iron man, not a bad film if you like the hero thing. the story gos something like this, man builds suit then builds a better suit then bad man pinches plans for suit and builds a bigger and better suit and they have a big suit fight at the end. ;D

                                My honest answer would be no, RBJ defnately makes this film. Without him as the main protagonist it would have been incredibly standard. His comic timing and witty banter just fills the Tony Stark character out perfectly. He has plenty of experience with similar aspects of the Stark character - Ex-alcoholic, 'playboy' etc - so has a lot of influence to draw on. I still can't think of another actor more perfect for this role.

                                To make a contrast, it's a little like what thought of the Beowulf film - I saw it in 3D which added so much that a 2D animation isn't able to, this therefore made a arguably mediocre film incredibly entertaining and enjoyable. RBJ is Iron Man's 3rd dimension, without him, the film would have been a bit flat. Just my opinion though!
