True Grit(2010)

Great modern western from the Coen's.

The Game
The Game(1997)

Mixed reviews of this. I loved it.

Twelve Monkeys (12 Monkeys)

One of Pitt's classics. Gilliam took his cigarettes away to help him become a delirious, crazy goof.

Scarface
Scarface(1983)
½

Absolute classic!

The Hangover Part II
½

Fell asleep Zzz. Should really give it another chance.

Enjoyed the hints to the sequels that will follow, but they could have done better with this.

Limitless
Limitless(2011)
½

Despite the plot-holes, fresh and enjoyable.

Devil
Devil(2010)
½

Phonebooth-esque thriller. Nicely told story and good plot twist. Far from perfect but totally enjoyable.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

A bit rough round the edges. Fantastic premise but they just didn't quite get this one right.

Bad Teacher
Bad Teacher(2011)

Wasn't what I expected. Crude and vulgar. Screen writers missed something here, should have been a lot funnier.

Life in a Day

Feel good docu-drama. Different concept that worked quite well.

Horrible Bosses

Hangoveresque funny, laugh-a-minute comedy. Good quotes and some big names make this a must see.

Machete
Machete(2010)
½

Big name, B grade awesomeness.

Memento
Memento(2000)

Excellent concept, but does it come together?

Seven Pounds
Seven Pounds(2008)

Smith is great - despite major plot holes.

Stander
Stander(2004)

Excellent portrayal. Again, strange to see familiar surroundings through a film.

Jumanji
Jumanji(1995)

A timeless take on fantasy becoming reality.

Madagascar
Madagascar(2005)

A fun film with recognisable voices. Not quite my cup of tea however.

Faith Like Potatoes

The acting left a lot to be desired, but an inspirational story nonetheless.

Quantum of Solace

Getting more and more far fetched.

Elf
Elf(2003)

Nothing funnier than over enthusiastic Will Ferrel.

Four Christmases

Average really. Missing a cameo from Ben Stiller.

About a Boy
About a Boy(2002)

I love watching a film set in familiar surroundings.

Zack and Miri Make a Porno

Standard Kevin Smith. References to Clerks noted.

Special
Special(2006)
½

Strong performance from Rapaport. Loved the plot. Underrated overall.

Pan's Labyrinth

Very dark and a bit slow. A little over rated.

Junior
Junior(1994)

Lame, but the highlight; seeing Emma snog Arnie.

Kindergarten Cop
½

Trying to give Arnie some new direction, but he is a one trick pony really.

The Air I Breathe

Strong performances from a big cast.

Raising Arizona
½

Another classic Coen take on funny America.

The Hudsucker Proxy
½

Classic Coen collaboration.

Trainspotting

Finally watched it! What an excellent film.

The Incredible Hulk

Norton, surprisingly suited the role.

Stardust
Stardust(2007)

Not a fan of the genre, made worse by seriously miscast De Niro.

Wayne's World

Put Mike Myers on the map

WALL-E
WALL-E(2008)

Saw this with low expectations, but it really is very well done.

Gosford Park
Gosford Park(2001)

Big cast ensemble, mediocre plot.

Jacob's Ladder
½

Definitely one of the most underrated movies ever. Tim Robbins is outstanding. This film is open to many different interpretations, and you could get something out of it every time you watch it.

The Big Lebowski

Classic comedy, man. Gets deeper everytime I watch it. A handful of classic quotes. "That rug really tied the room together man."

Iron Man
Iron Man(2008)
½

Predictable, enjoyable. Sticks closer to the comics than most conversions.

I, Robot
I, Robot(2004)

CGI for Smith to hustle.

I Am Legend
I Am Legend(2007)

Ruined by the last minute change of plot to suit Hollywoods bank account.

The Boy in the Striped Pajamas (The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas)

Hands down the best novel to film conversion! Like the book, the story will stick with you for a long time.

Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind
½

Despite what I think of Jim Carrey in dramatic roles, I have only heard good things about this film.

The Dark Knight

Terrific! Heath Ledger was born for this role.

Proof
Proof(2005)
½

Very good from Paltrow.

Over-hyped, over-rated.

Freedom Writers

Excellent! Moving! Very well played by Swank.

The Illusionist
½

Norton is excellent as always!

Grindhouse
Grindhouse(2007)
½

Grind house
?noun Slang.
1. a burlesque house, esp. one providing continuous entertainment at reduced prices.
2. a movie theatre that shows films throughout the day and all or most of the night.

I am not much of a cinema goer, they are expensive, gross, dirty, and I hate that kid that sits behind you and kicks your seat, giggles loudly at every joke and rustles his Maltesers packet at every conceivable opportunity.
Having said that I think I will have to kick my cinema-phobia and see this film the way it was made to be seen ? at ?The Movies?.

Ghost Rider
Ghost Rider(2007)

Another Marvel adaptation... Yes please!

Fun With Dick and Jane

I like slap stick Jim Carrey.

Pointless storyline

300
300(2007)

Awesome concept

Cloverfield
Cloverfield(2008)

Could have been so much better.

Walk the Line
½

Great portrayal of Cash's life. The film does run for about 20 mins too long though.

Miss Potter
Miss Potter(2007)

Not something I would choose to watch, but it was cute and heart warming.

Run Fatboy Run
½

Despite this film having a predictable ending the story was lightly humorous by going off course at times. However, this film lacked personality.

Déjà Vu
Déjà Vu(2006)
½

A little far fetched at times but very entertaining.

Superbad
Superbad(2007)
½

It's in the name.

Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang

Funny storyline, well backed up by good performances and hilarious dialogue.

Sunshine
Sunshine(2007)
½

2001esque...

The Queen
The Queen(2006)

An excellent portrayal of events. However, storyline was a little anti-climatic and Sheen was an inappropriate casting.

Stranger Than Fiction

This one didn't keep me interested all the way through, however was surprised at the good performances from each of the lead actors as they were in different roles from that which you would associate them.

Inside Man
Inside Man(2006)

Disappointing, other than the performances.

Casino Royale
½

Personally didn't think Craig was very Bondesque, and seemed quite unbelievable at times.

The Pursuit of Happyness

A touching true story with a satisfying conclusion.

Ocean's Thirteen

Hollywood payout on sequels to milk the market... Not to say that it wasn't an enjoyable movie experience.

Hot Fuzz
Hot Fuzz(2007)

Enjoyable Shaun of the dead "sequel". Watch for the unmissable scene...

Blades of Glory
½

Cheesy Ferrel comedy.

Night at the Museum

A very fun children's movie for people of all ages. Was very enjoyable.

The Holiday
The Holiday(2006)

Not ever really up for a chick flick, but every now and again I get persuaded to watch one. Then afterwards I realize why I am never up for it.

The Number 23

Not completely satisfying.

Atonement
Atonement(2007)
½

Typical girly novel conversion, with "surprise" twist...

Children of Men

This film was very touching and had a riveting conceptual approach to the future.

My Best Friend's Birthday

QT's style is very evident, although somewhat unrefined.

Evan Almighty
½

Light humor, not to be taken seriously.

1408
1408(2007)
½

Really good psychological horror. Not the best Stephen King conversion, but definitely worth watching.

Resident Evil: Extinction

Hollywood killed another one.

One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest
½

Powerful. This made Jack Nicholson's career.

Shaun of the Dead

An original zombie flick. British comedy mixed with a dash of some B grade goodness. Result, hmm, pretty good.

Death Proof
Death Proof(2007)

Awesome! Entertaining and action packed - Whether you like Tarantino or not, this is what movies are all about. Not to be taken seriously, just enjoy the directors attempt to entertain and take it for what it is.

Planet Terror (Grindhouse Presents: Robert Rodriguez's Planet Terror)

Excellent B-grade action. Great work Rodriquez. They could have made more of an impact with the missing reel - I don't feel like I missed anything.

The Bourne Ultimatum

Very good. Found it a little far fetched at times. Why does this guy not die?

Superman Returns
½

They could have done way better with this!

Transformers
Transformers(2007)
½

Would normally have not had an interest in this, but have heard some good rumors.

Was really well done, excellent CG Imagery! Let down by the predictable, cheesy plot.

Vacancy
Vacancy(2007)
½

Gets an extra half a star just because I love the genre. Not a particularly good film but good intentions. Beckinsale is hot, and Wilson does well, but a limited and predictable plot line doesn't help the cause. The director tried to use every scare tactic possible.

Zodiac
Zodiac(2007)

Hoping this will be decent.

Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End

Can't beleive I went to watch this. Might as well have been animated. Yawn.

Spider-Man 3
Spider-Man 3(2007)

Cheesy, hollywoodified and not as spectacular as expected. Venom was cool though!

Alpha Dog
Alpha Dog(2007)

Wow, Timberlake can act!

28 Weeks Later...
½

I am always one for a good zombie flick. This movie had great potential, but I personally think it wasn't done right. And what was with the zigzag walk from Canary Wharf to Regents Park? Just as eerie as the first! Empty London is enough to freak anyone out!

Friday
Friday(1995)
½

I know you don't smoke weed, I know this; but I'm gonna get you high today, 'cause it's Friday; you ain't got no job... and you ain't got shit to do.

The Untouchables

Great cast - but I got bored.

Basic
Basic(2003)

The first time I watched this I missed 10 minutes about halfway through, and was utterly confused by the finish.

Dude, Where's My Car?

[Jesse and Chester have tattoos on their backs that say "dude" and "sweet."]
Jesse: Dude! You got a tattoo!
Chester: So do you, dude! Dude, what does my tattoo say?
Jesse: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Chester: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Jesse: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Chester: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Jesse: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Chester: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Jesse: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Chester: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Jesse: "Sweet!" What about mine?
Chester: "Dude!" What does mine say?
Jesse: "Sweet!" What about mine?
[later]
Chester: [angry] "Dude!" What does mine say?
Jesse: [screaming] "Sweet!"
