The Boat That Rocked

Awesome soundtrack, great performances, especially from Ifans and Hoffman. Sadly Rhys Darby gets pushed to the background slightly - would have liked to see what he could have done with more space. Movie lacks a protagonist so it can feel a bit messy, but the music is fantastic and its great to see all these amazing actors together on screen...

Monsters vs. Aliens

It's a kids movie so don't expect too much. Seth Rogen's character, Bob is the most fun character although Hugh Laurie and Kiefer Sutherland do amazing voice work with lesser characters. Digital 3D so it's no Coraline, but still entertaining.

Stellar performances from Sturgess and Kingsley in a gritty, as real as it can be portrayal of the life of an informer. Worth seeing just for the amazing performance from Sturgess.

Not what it was supposed to be, not by a long shot. The funniest parts are when Paul Rudd says something ridiculous and the obvious ad libbing. Tries to be in the vein of the 40 Year Old Virgin and fails. As much as I love Paul Rudd, perhaps he is just not a leading man... Mildly entertaining...

Entertaining, and a good way to spend a Tuesday afternoon. Never had much time for Zac Efron after the HSM fiasco but he is actually not too bad in this movie... Maybe I should not have judged him so harshly. Don't go expecting this movie to change your life or for it to be another "13 going on 30", but its silly and fun, and sometimes that's what we need...

Kiera Knightly sticking to what she knows best - peiod films that allow her to be pouty. That said, however, her character in this film is a bit more fiesty than others that she has played and that's what makes this film different.

Whil it is nice to see Simon Pegg in Hollywood and not playing an instantly liked character, Jeff Bridges was sadly wasted...
