Love and Other Drugs

Hathaway pushes her Disney princess past further away as the free spirited Maggie, with a medical condition that prevents any kind of long term relationship, while Gyllenhaal plays the same character we've seen the likes of Matthew McConaughey make a career out of. I think this may end up being remember as one of the first of the 90's nostalgia films (Maggie's apartment is straight out of Party of Five/Reality Bites) with the soundtrack to boot

Easy A

Olive embraces the reputation bestowed upon her as the result of a lie to her best friend about how she spent her weekend. Now hated by the Christians in her school, and loved by the outcasts who use her reputation to enhance their own, she's taught a series of lessons about how bad things can get, and how fast. Embroidering the scarlet letter A on all her clothes, and adopting a radically different style of clothing, Olive is forced to confront the results of her actions, and how they affect everyone in her life. This is going to be marked down as the breakout role for Emma Stone, who excels in the lead role.

A modern retelling of Planes, Trains and Automobiles. While neither lead character is as likeable as their forebears, it's still a solid enough outing. I would worry that Galifianakis is just going to be cast as "weirdo with a beard-o" for the rest of his career

The Social Network

Compelling re-telling of the creation of the largest communications development in the last decade, and one of the first films to get the atmosphere of an internet startup right. Working in IT, I do recognise myself, and colleagues in the leads.

Back to the Future (25th Anniversary Re-Issue)

timeless, classic, fun film. See it on the big screen with a bunch of friends.

Solid second effort from Affleck, proving he can act, even if it takes Affleck the directory to get the best from Affleck the actor.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

An awesome epic of epic awesomeness, effortlessly combining anime, video games, rock music, romance and humour. Quite possibly the funniest shoelace-tieing scene in movie history.

The Expendables

The greatest 80's action flick never made.

Inception

Needs repeated viewings to appreciate the sheer breath of this opus from a modern day genius filmaker.

Had my doubts about this, seeing as the original was such a huge part of my childhood. However, it pays tribute to, and expands on, the basic story of the original. Enjoyable, and at times quite touching movie. Recommended.

The A-Team

By all accepted movie logic, it should be terrible. The dialogue is stilted, the CG is ropey and the villain is unconvincing. But it's so much fun that all of that matters not a jot. I can't give it four, because of the weaknesses, but it's the best three star film ever!

surprisingly endearing comedy following the redemption of Russel Brand's Aldus Snow with the help of his biggest fan. Who knew Sean "P. Diddy" Combs was this funny??
