Django Unchained

I love stories like this that build the characters in exquisite detail. slightly subdued for tarrantino and he's going loopy with the silly monty-pythonesque scene with the hoods - funny though it was.

Star Trek Into Darkness

Because the star trek tv franchise sets the bar so high in terms of production quality it sets an even higher bar for movies bearing its name. This film had its grin moments when for example you first heard the voice of scotty and the other recognisable voices from the past. I loved the opening sequence and the red forest and the characters that inhabited that world, I wish it had continued in that vein. When you strip it down this is a poor version of Good vs Evil placed in a Star Trek setting. And while that fits the 1960s style of morality portrayed in the TV series, the rest of the world has moved on ever since Lost and an opportunity to reinvigorate the genre and create a truly memorable film has been sorely missed. The appearance by the great Leonard Nimoy himself was quite unnecessary. Not a keeper for me.

I'm a fan of M Night Shyamalan, ever since unbreakable. What MNS is able to do is convey emotive feelings., there are points in the film where I did get lump in my throat. The story is very very simple , too simple perhaps, and clearly an attempt by WS to thrust his son into the acting limelight. The things is that WS is a seriously good natural actor and JS is outshone by dad, even though WS doesnt do a lot in the film. The CGI is pretty appalling an unrealistic, which is a shame as it could have lifted the movie. Its not a bad movie, just a watchable forgettable one.

I was expecting something a lot more from this film. I thought this was the weakest of the iron man franchise with some strange on-the-wall perspectives at the start that didnt work for me, a very confused baddie and a plot more akin to superman saving the president. Sure there were some awesome graphics and RDJ can do no wrong with the awesome pepper by his side, but it just felt somewhat wrong - maybe it was just the weak baddie.

visually beautiful film with a twisting plot that has some similarities with moon [2009] with blue-washed Tron styling. It wall worked very well up to the point of meeting the alien - A less than imaginative tetrahedron. Excellent film otherwise
