[B]Post any films you have seen recently (cinema, DVD or TV) along with a short review.[/B]

Fast and the Furious 3: Tokyo Drift

7/10

Its rubbish really. The story is pathetic and the set pieces are unbelievable (the Japanese Yakuza settling a problem with some punk kid by having a car race? I dont think so), but the only reason you would go to see this film is for the cars anyway and the races all look great. It was as fun to watch as the other two, possibly even better than #2 and there is a nice surprise at the end for fans of the series.

If you are wanting some great acting, a heart wrentching story and some brilliantly detailed drama, then this isnt for you. If you want Japanese girls in short skirts driving customised sports cars then I think you'll love it.

Smurfs 2
More Smurfs. It's fair to say that if you hated the first one then you'll feel equally bad about this. The kids lived it, however. 6/10

Despicable Me 2
I still can't decide if this was better or on par with the first film. It's great, either way. The minions steal the show again, though. 9/10

Hopefully going to catch up on some other films as they're released on Bluray, as I wasn't able to go to the cinema when stuff like Star Trek Into Darkness and Oblivion were out.

Now You See Me: Quite inventive but totally ridiculous, didn't hate it but wouldn't recommend it either. 6.5/10

Lovelace: Not really sure what to make of this TBH, despite its subject matter it's not really about porn it centralises on a pretty unpleasant case of domestic abuse. Apparently it's fairly true(ish) to the real events it was based on, although I suppose most biopics are a little biased in some way. The acting in it is pretty good to be fair as is the recreation of the time period. It's quite sad stuff really, certainly wouldn't watch it again. 6.5/10

Alpha Papa wasn't actually too bad. Being a massive fan of the original series, I had very low expectations, but it definitely could've been a lot worse. Some funny moments, not the greatest film in the world, but it didn't disappoint anyway.

Jack Reacher...

Awful, to be quite honest. Entirely the wrong person to play the character, the plot was obvious and the script couldn't have been further from the books if it tried.

The books aren't the best written by any means, but they do at least leave you with something to think about. Mr. Cruise should be ashamed of himself...

Kick Ass 2: Ridiculously OTT ultra violent profanity riddled sequel....loved it! 9/10

The Conjuring: If that's based on a true a story I'll buy a hat just so I can eat it! 6/10

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone: I liked this and I'm not really sure why? Jim Carrey steals the show as a character which may or may not have been based on Criss Angel... 7.5/10.

Side Effects: Steven Soderbergh seems to have made a career making rather average films which desperately needed half an hour or so whipping out of them....here's another one. 5.5/10

Arbitrage: It's alright, nothing more, nothing less. 5.5/10

The Brass Teapot: Harmless enough nonsense I suppose, seen worse. 6/10

Pain & Gain: I'm going to need that hat again... Michael Bay's decision to portray a group of people who apparently carried out some rather unpleasant acts as likeable baffoons is questionable. Still, put that to one side and this isn't a totally funless experience. 6.5/10

Redemption: The Stath apparently wanted to prove that he is actually a serious actor capable of more than simply mumbling his way through brain dead ass kicking films. He should have stuck with what he knows. 4/10.

Parker: The Stath mumbles his way through this brain dead ass kicking film....hooray! 6/10

Trance: Not Danny Boyle's greatest effort but not his worst either. Wouldn't recommend getting up to make a cup of tea without pausing it as you will have no idea what the hell is going on. Pausing it is still no guarantee you will know what the hell is going on but it probably helps. Also features a very memorable scene featuring that rather nice lady from Clerks 2.... 7/10

Anyone else seen anything good recently?

The Heat - funny, feel-good film. Loved Melissa McCarthy in Bridesmaids and loved her in this, plays such a lovable character. Lots of f-bombs..

Had another watch of the Bruno movie last night - was laughing all the way through with some of the antics he gets up to and movie I can watch again and again.

How he had the guts to try and get kidnapped by the Taliban I'll never know! A must see.

Man of Steel.

Disappointing from a Superman point of view but ok as a standalone action Superhero movie. 7/10

Monsters University: Unsurprisingly it's not in the same league as the first one but it's still good fun 7/10

Evil Dead (2013): Not really a remake more of re-imagining, refreshing to see a film that uses old school make up effects and there's noticeably little CGI to be seen. Splattertastic fun but could perhaps of benefited from a touch of humour here and there? Although it was no masterpiece it was better than I was honestly expecting it be 7/10

Watched "The Campaign" last night, and it's the most I've laughed for a long time...

Just don't watch it with your mother!
