Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen
7 years ago via Flixster

It's hard to say whethe ror not this is better than the first film; as it avoids many of the pitfalls the original film had (most notably the Transformers being guest stars in their own movie, the decepticons show some vague signs of personality here and there) yet jumps head first into some new ones; most notably a tendency to devolve into sophmoric humor, with multiple cases of dry humping, a succubot and more besides. The plot isn't exactly going to set the world on fire, but the set pieces are visually spectacular, and there's enough footage of giant robots beating the crap out of each other to leave you immensely entertained. Worth seeing if you get the opportunity, but not good enough to go out of your way to see it.

The Thing

The film takes a while to get going, but when it does... man you could cut the tension with a knife. The prosthetic 'thing' effects still stand up 20 odd years on, and the 'head' scene is a particular stand out.

The Dark Knight

Batman Begins was an amazing film as, I'm pretty sure anyone who has seen it will agree - but it had the virtue of coming after the camptacular crapfest that were Joel Schumacher's Batman Films - and was thus made to look all the better because of it. The Dark Knight however, doesn't have that luxury, and, as a result, I went in to see it with high expectations indeed.

This film exceeded those expectations and went on to raise the already high bar for all comic-book films to live up to up another notch or two. Even better than the first one, TDK corrects most of the minor flaws that the first film had (Katie Holmes being replaced by Maggie Gyllenhaal for example) and goes on from there. The late heath Ledger goes out not with a bang, but with a thermonuclear explosion of armageddon-like capacity as he doesn't so much 'act' the role of the Joker as he does become it. Although I'd hesitate to call him the 'definitive' Joker - for after all, the character has, much like Batman himself, evolved over time - the performance he turns in is nothing short of brilliant, combining hints of the Nicholson-Joker's sardonic, semi-southern purr with his own brand of anarchic insanity. The little character touches ledger adds really bring the character to life and, as a result, he completely owns every single scene he's in. If he doesn't get an Oscar for this performance, there is no justice in the world.

Heath isn't the only one who turns in an awesome performance - indeed all the cast are on the top of their game here. but special mention goes to Aaron Eckhart as District Attorney Harvey Dent, whose performance throughout the film is completely flawless.

The best Batman movie made so far, this film is a must-watch for any fan of the caped crusader.

Kung Fu Hustle
8 years ago via Flixster

For a comedy it takes itself a little too seriously to be truly funny and as a straight-up martial arts film it's enjoyable, but lacking in the awesome ammounts of kick-ass factor. Definitely worth a watch, and certainly an entertaining enough way to pass the time, but nothing particularly special, IMO
