constantly laughing along for the length of the movie, with the cast unafraid to play around with their public personas.

a welcome return for the guiltiest of pleasures. you already know the story, it's just the skeleton to hang some outrageous stunts, fast cars, and very little clothing on. Turn on, tune in and try to deny you're enjoying yourself far more than you should be!

Star Trek Into Darkness

Excellent follow up to the Abrams reboot.

Iron Man 3

Taking the first steps for the super hero into a more realistic threat, the second phase of Marvel cinematic movies has certainly hit the ground running with a tightly woven script examining the impact of the events of The Avengers on the psyche of Tony Stark, and how he deals with it as only he can.

not as good as Knocked Up, and (in a similar vein to Funny People) not really a comedy either. Returning to the support characters from Knocked Up to see how the upcoming milestone in their lives, a week apart, is affecting them, their marriage and family. The film takes a little too long to reach a conclusion, if there even is one. While some jokes come off as mean spirited, the fact that it stars Apatow's real life wife and children add a degree of reality to the proceedings. See it, but be prepared for what it really is - not a comedy.

exhaustive review of the efforts by the CIA to locate bin Laden after the attacks of 9/11. Excellent performance from the central character, showing the changes the search made on her over a decade.

charming and nostaligic tribute to the 8-bit era with copious references to arcade classics and modern games

Life of Pi

one minor (and understandable) omission aside, this is as faithful an interpretation of the book as you could expect to see. The visuals dazzle early on, but fade to reflect the bleak expanse of the ocean, as it surrounds the two main characters All at once an examination of faith, of human perserverance and an example of what can be achieved using modern technology that was unthinkable less than a decade ago. Do not wait for the home edition, see it on the big screen.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey

  • Currently 4/5 Stars.

while not up to the standards of the previous trilogy, this is a welcome (if slightly over long) return to middle earth. Detailing the adventures of a young Bilbo Baggins, including how he came into possession of a certain ring, and displayed in the highest of fidelity, the young hobbit is reunited with Gandalf, and then introduced to the team of dwarves that he will accompany to their ancestral home. At slightly under three hours, there is a lot of filler material that perhaps should have been saved for the special edition release, but you do get the impression the real meat of the story is coming in the next two installments

Silent Hill: Revelation 3D

a two hour Marilyn Manson video starring a Michelle Williams lookalike, containing some nods to the source material and fanservice in the form of Pyramid Head. The game developed its themes and plot over several hours, and it feels shoehorned into the 90+ minutes here.
