The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug
3 years ago via Flixster

actually not bad - a good continuation of the characters through the story and I was captivated throughout. But every good thing has to come to an end and I think its about time to put a lid on this one and do something different - perhaps go beyond Tolkein. Star trek meets the hobbit, now I'd pay to see that.

Elysium (2013)
3 years ago via Flixster

started off well and a really nice build up to the character in a dusty district 9 textured place. Matt did what matt does and this could have been Jason Bourne in scifi mode. The end of the film was the weakest with the iron man/terminator style fight and blow the shit up. The scifi setting was ancillary to the character which was a shame as I was thinking of keeping the disc in the collection.

Gravity (2013)

What a disappointment after all the hype. Yes the graphics were great - but it left me wanting a epic story.

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.
