Watchmen

Amazingly stylised movie, there hasn't been a film that felt so much like a comicbook world ever. I worry that it stays a little too close to its source material and non-readers might find themselves a little lost. Despite the violence being a little OTT I loved the film. Why can't all movies look this good?

The Secret of Kells

Played a lot younger than I expected, its really a kids movie at heart but the animation is wasted on the young. It's stylish and pretty to look at and that's why I give it 4 stars. Some humour might have made it a little less serious.

Unexpectedly brilliant movie about 3 boxers at a Dublin boxing club. It has zero budget but is all the more engaging for it. This is real Dublin, I can see the film being looked on by future generations as both an archive of Dublin and of modern film-making. See it now.

Very powerful film, telling the tale of 4 different brothers, each with their own problem in poverished Sao Paulo, Brazil. Tension slowly build towards the films end, every characters situation gets more engaging and then... nothing.. it ends with a very open-ended ending. It is left up to the viewer to decide what happens next. Its something I wasn't expecting and was slightly disappointed by, I really wanted to know the resolutions, either happy or sad. Besides that, this is a masterpiece, well worth seeing.

Flashbacks of a Fool

Nice boy becomes man style movie with an ageing Daniel Craig looking back on mistakes made in his youth. Very well acted with gorgeous cinematography, this is an engaging highly watchable drama with a toe-tapping soundtrack. Just be warned that Craig is off screen for half the movie, but his younger self Harry Eden definitely makes his presence felt on screen.

Much better than expected, Will Ferrells recent comedies have been very hard to watch but this is a joy from start to finish. Lots of laughs, best comedy out at the moment.

not as bad as the name and poster might have you believe. Its quite funny, cinema was dead though, so the jokes fell flat without an audience

Get Smart

If I was to compare it to other TV movies, its miles better than the avengers, not as good as Charlie's Angels. The cast are great but its hard to care, the story is a predictable spy romp, nothing new to see here.

Donkey Punch

This has all the elements to be a great film, with some slightly better direction they could have had a big hit on their hands, instead its just semi-watchable.

Kung Fu Panda

  • Currently 4/5 Stars.

An animation that puts story and script first and animation second. There have been too many toons lately featuring cute talking animals that just felt lazy, this is the opposite of that. It's clever and best of all funny. If I were to fault it, its the voice of the panda sounds too much like the voice of Jack Black, so it was difficult to stop thinking about the actor instead of the panda.

Incredible Hulk, The

Maybe its because I had no expectations but this movie was amazing. I guess the previous Ang Lee movie left a bad taste in everyones mouth but trust me, forget everything you know about the Hulk and go see this, its the superhero movie of the year (at least until batman anyway)

If you want to see sex and the city and its best, buy seasons 1 to 4, skip 5 and 6 and most importantly skip this foul smelling cash-in
