The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)

Barrel of Laughs - 3.5/5
So I saw this film called 'The 40 Year Old Virgin'. It's a barrel of laughs isn't it? With a stellar cast including funny-men Steve Carrell and Seth Rogen you can't help but find this film hilarious. There's a guy in this called Gerry Bednob too! Add to this a title which tells you straight from the start that this is going to make you laugh and you've got yourself a movie. Now I won't pretend it's the funniest film out there but it is genuinely laugh out loud hilarious in places. Judd Apatow delivers his brand of comedy and it appeals to almost everyone.
I must digress slightly here as I remember what a friend said to me last night in the pub. What is Seth Rogen's main film? In popular films he features but rarely plays a big role. I know he was the main character in 'Observe and Report' and to a degree 'Pineapple Express' but somehow he manages to fade into the background. Everybody loves him but when I was asked the question I was like uhhhhhh... You probably think I'm crazy and disagree with me but it's something to think about.
Back to the film then. I didn't like Romany Malco's character Jay one bit and I don't think he was acted as well as he should have been. You put in the token black guy of the group and make him a stereotypical 'bitch' hunter. It's wearing a bit thin. Why not swap his character with Seth Rogen's? That could have made for some funnier stuff.What I liked about how this film was laid out however was that, in places, you could see the actors bringing in their own material and it's nice to see that, you know that the actors are having a laugh and this draws you in to having a laugh with them. Parts of the storyline sagged slightly and the ending did let it down a bit but overall I'd say it was a success.
Would I recommend it? If you want some laughs, go for it.

The Wolfman (2010)

Lacked depth - 3/5
So I saw this film last month called 'The Wolfman'. I'd heard that this film was, and I quote, 'quality' and so I was looking forward to it. Furthermore, as a massive fan of Benicio Del Toro, I was looking forward to seeing him in an action packed, gory horror film, the sort of film we haven't really seen him in before. But it was about as far away from 'quality' as you could get. I just didn't get into it. The action scenes were pacy and hard to get in to and the story lacked any real substance. His performance was amazing either. I expected this film to be very dark and have a few more jumpy moments in it; it was attempted by director Joe Johnston but to me it really didn't hit the spot.The best scene was probably Benicio transforming in front of a lecture room full of the best minds of the day and beginning a wild chase through London. The scenes of Del Toro attempting to track down the killer of his brother in the town are really just filling and get very tedious towards the end. Anthony Hopkins performed well and most of the scenes he was involved with were enjoyable.
Again, like 'Clash of the Titans', we see a film that doesn't live up to its trailer. They stuffed every last bit of excitement from the film into the trailer and left the film with little else to reveal. There were attempted twists to the plot line but you could see them coming a mile off. Now, before I go too far, this film wasn't awful. It was well made and who doesn't want to see Benicio Del Toro transforming into a werewolf? It was quite evident however that it was trying to ride on the back of the successful 'Twilight' franchise. And I can't stand 'Twilight'.
The special effects were probably what held the film together. They were impressive and it was evident that huge efforts had been taken during the making of the film to make the effect wow the audience. However, it is unfortunate for the makers that good special effects don't make a bad movie good.
Would I recommend it. If you like 'Twilight' then yes. Not for me however.

Step Brothers (2008)

Riotously funny - 4/5
So I saw this film last year called 'Step Brothers'. As you will know this film is hilarious. Will Ferrell is funny on his own but he seems to have this chemistry with John C. Reilly that makes something magical. Whoever came up with the idea for this film was a genius. Two forty something guys who still live with their parents paired up after a marriage and thrown into a life together. This film was always going to make people laugh.
What made this film so funny was that it brought us as an audience back to the days of our childhood. Scenes such as the one where Ferrell and Reilly decide to make bunk beds and remark that after doing so they will have 'so much more room for activities' brought me back to the days of running around the house with a friend with blind excitement at everything thought up to do.
I must admit the end it slightly stupid. Other than that however I can't fault this film. Kathryn Hahn plays Alison, the wife of Will Ferrell's brother superbly; she manages to be laugh out loud funny with every line she says. Adam Scott provides us with someone to hate as Brennan's brother Derek and it gives us great satisfaction when things don't go his way. Most of all this film is full of one liners: 'I'm gonna stab you in the neck with a knife', 'I'm gonna put my nut sack on your drum set' and of course the classic 'I'm gonna fill a pillow case with bars of soap and beat the shit out of you'. So if its a rainy day and you're in need of some cheering up, put this film on. Its one of those that you can play over and over again and notice new things every time.
Would I recommend it? Why have you not seen it already?

The Wild (2006)

Relied on the Laughs 3/5
So I saw this film today called 'The Wild'. Despite a very basic storyline which lacked any real imagination, Disney managed to come away with something watchable. Saying that however, it was only until about an hour into the film that I realised I had seen it before. Not the most memorable flick ever it seems. It didn't lack in stars; Disney packed in Kiefer Sutherland, William Shatner and most impressive of the lot, Eddie Izzard. Izzard's character Nigel provided much of the comedy throughout the film and kept the film going in scenes where it otherwise would have lagged. Jim Belushi's character Benny also had the same effect but on a smaller scale. Izzard was certainly the shining light in this one.
Screenplay writers Ed Decter and John J. Strauss deserve praise for the script. It certainly did not lack pace; with both Izzard and Belushi's wit shining through in a quick-fire comedy. No it isn't the funniest film you'll ever see but believe me, without the hint of gentle comedy, this film would definitely have been one to miss. With it, Disney manages to make another ok family film. It's no 'Lion King', but it will have to do.One point to add; if you watch this you may agree that, at times, it feels like parts are copied from both 'Madagascar' and 'Ice Age'. Just saying.
Overall I would have to describe it as a good kids film, with moments that will occasionally make adult laugh. Nothing overly impressive but its not one to avoid.
Would I recommend it? I guess so.

Clash of the Titans (2010)

Lifeless - 3/5
So I saw this film today called 'Clash of the Titans'. I'd seen the trailer on TV and though that it looked ok but I felt it was not worth seeing in the cinema. Well at least that is some money saved because I would have been very disappointed had I gone. The main thing the trailer seemed to put out was the special effects in the film. Well where were they? I seem to remember a giant scorpion bursting through some sand in the trailer? Maybe I missed it but I don't recall that shot even being used. The scenes in Olympus, well they were terribly done. Why was everything so brightly lit and distorted. Furthermore, what was director Louis Leterrier doing trying to make parts of the film funny? Why even add those two weird hunter guys? And why send a force of ten men to go and defeat Hades?There was a distinct lack of any soldiers in that city, did anyone else notice this?
The ending was shocking! All the way through I was thinking, well at least there will be a battle of epic proportions between Hades and Perseus. When did that happen?!? He managed to banish him with a fair amount of ease I thought. You know what really grinds my gears about this film? The inclusion of Nicholas Hoult. Why on earth was he cast. He is about as far away as you can get from a warrior and his acting left much to be desired.
As did the acting of the rest of the cast. Was there any stand out performances? No. You might expect something from Fiennes or Neeson, but they were equally as bad as the main man Sam Worthington. I'm trying to think of something good to say about this film. Hmmmmmmmmmmm....... the giant scorpions were slightly cool. That is literally all that comes to mind.
Would I recommend it? No, I'm very glad I didn't pay to see this film. And delete off the planner.

Repo Men (2010)

Law's Finest Hour - 4.5/5
So I saw this film today called 'Repo Men'. I'm not a big fan on Jude Law; films such as 'Sherlock Holmes', 'The Holiday' and 'Enemy at the Gates' have totally passed me by without making much of an impression. You'll see why I would say that this was Jude Law's finest performance to date. Had I been the director his name would not have even passed my mind. He just doesn't seem suitable for an extremely gory action thriller with some stunning fight scenes. Forest Whitaker maybe, but not Law. However, he managed to blow me away! He was hardcore.

This film totally captured me from the very beginning. With a futuristic film about a subject that needs some explaining to the audience of today, it is important to reveal the main storyline quickly. Within minutes we understood the plot and were ready to see where it would take us. It managed to take us on a thrilling journey of bloodbaths, 300-esque fight scenes and even romance. This film packed everything in. It could win an award based solely on its superb soundtrack which, like the casting of Jude Law, is surprisingly effective. Not to mention the MEGA twist right at the end. That was a stroke of genius.

Ok, so some parts of the plot didn't make too much sense. Why, as an employee of The Union, would Law have to pay for his heart after being shocked by a faulty piece of Union equipment? And how do they legally repossess the organs? These thoughts remained with me for only a few minutes. Then I was sucked in by another amazing murder. It would have been easy for this film to run away with futuristic idiocy, but it managed to stay true to the storyline surrounding Law's family. It needed this element to keep it believable.

Would I recommend it? Make it the next film you watch.

The Last King of Scotland (2006)

A Powerhouse Performance - 4/5
So I saw this film last night called 'The Last King of Scotland'. I'd seen the film previously, and very much enjoyed it, but this time round I realised just how good this film is. Forrest Whitaker deserves a lot of praise, he delivers a powerhouse performance as Idi Amin, capturing his charm and tact as well as his explosive anger and denial. The accent was top notch too! For a film that is based on true events, it is important that the actors adsorb you into this and make it seem like you could be watching a documentary. Whitaker certainly manages this. James McAvoy must also be praised for his part in the film. When put up against an angry Amin, McAvoy effectively produced an image of a scared little boy. In the scene where McAvoy threatens to leave but Whitaker persuades him to stay with an embrace, you can really feel the power Amin had over his advisers. Although scared of Amin, Dr. Garrigan (McAvoy) shows no fear of speaking his mind, one reason why Amin took to him so fondly. McAvoy captures the brash, confident side of the doctor well also.
The director Kevin Macdonald and screenplay writers Peter Morgan and Jeremy Brock also deserves praise for the way they captured the spirit of the African nation Uganda. With scenes that will shock you, and scenes showing the wondrous beauty of the country, it seems they set out to show the ultimate effect of Amin on the people of his nation. You could feel the effect of this from the very start of the film. Genuinely shocking scenes of mutilation and torture only added to the 'realness' of this film. It is certainly a movie made to shock, and the fact that it is based on true events also adds to this. It was a triumph of a film and superbly cast.
Would I recommend it? Buy the DVD today!

What To Look Forward To In 2011

Thought I'd have a quick break from reviews to take a look at what is coming soon and, more importantly, what is worth seeing. So hang onto your hats and get excited for what you can expect in 2011!
'Battle: Los Angeles' looks like it may attract a lot of attention when it comes to cinemas in March 2011. The film brings an alien invasion to LA, with a Marine force battling back against them. From what I have seen this film will be an attempt to mirror the success of 'District 9', and being a lover of the aforementioned flick, I am dying to see this. Unfortunately the only acting prowess we have to look forward to is Aaron Eckhart. Put a Wahlberg or a Foxx in the driving seat and I would be slightly more enthused. Still definitely one to watch though.
Are we excited about a film of the popular children's fairy tale 'Red Riding Hood'. When I saw Gary Oldman on the bill I certainly was. When I saw that the film's director will be Catherine Hardwicke however, I immediately closed the page. I'm sure here will be plenty of teen fans queueing for this take on a classic fable, but I will be avoiding it like the plague.
Ever wanted to see a superhero action film directed by Kenneth Branagh? I'm sure it has never even entered your mind. But 'Thor' will be hitting the big screen in April 2011. With a so far unknown Chris Hemsworth playing the lead, we have to hope that co-stars Natalie Portman and Anthony Hopkins will bolster the performance. It will be exciting to see just how the new guys does however. May wait for this on DVD, but I would still love to see it.
'Pirates of the Carribean: On Stranger Tides'.....PASS. The third one was bad enough. Take out Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley and you make it, somehow, even worse Not interested.
One I will definitely be in the queue for will be 'The Hangover Part II'. I just hope, with part one being as genius it was, that Part II won't go the way of so many sequels and fall by the wayside. This one has Bill Clinton in it! Get in the queue now!

The Hurricane (1999)

Inspired - 4.5/5
So I saw this film a few months back called 'The Hurricane'. It features one of the coolest Hollywood actors alive today, Denzel Washington, who buffed up amazingly for this film. Although it is evident how much physical training Washington undertook for this film, I would argue that the mental training he pursued to play a factual character with such intellect made the film what it was. The key to this film, as with any film based on real life events, was for Denzel to cease being Denzel and to become Rubin 'Hurricane' Carter. Washington seemingly managed this with such ease, making this performance truly magical.
Now as we know, the film is well documented for being loosely based on the true events. The fight we see at the start which in the film is portrayed as being fixed for racial reasons was a cause for the film to eventually be sued by the opponent Joey Giardello. If you had not heard of Rubin Carter before the film however, or if you had just heard his name in passing, these faults are of little importance. The fact is the film is a work of genius. Maybe it doesn't portray events exactly as they happened, but what films based on fact do? A certain level of embellishment is allowable if it will benefit the film and go on to inspire the audience. It certainly inspired me. This is the type of film that, after finishing, you immediately go on to look up Rubin Carter on Wikipedia. It has to be done. Carter becomes your hero for those few hours without any prior knowledge of his existence. Much of the credit for this must certainly go to Washington for his splendid performance.
Inspiring is what this film was intended to be and inspiring was what it was. The soundtrack helped, with Bob Dylan's song 'Hurricane' heavily featured, helping the audience relate the film to real life. Incorporated into the film were black and white films of the controversy surrounding Carter's arrest which again related the film back to the real events. Very effective.
Would I recommend it? Most certainly. Get your computer ready for when it finishes too.

Do The Right Thing (1989)

Thought provoking - 4/5
So I saw this film called "Do The Right Thing'. My first Spike Lee film and it was definitely enjoyable. It basically tells the story of the hottest day of the year in a suburb of Brooklyn, with separate story lines that merge and come together. We see the day from different racial perspectives including the black community whose protagonist, Mookie, provides Spike Lee with his very understated acting role. We also see the stereotypical Italian pizzeria family, led by Sal Fragione who was brilliantly played by Danny Aiello. The film also paved the way for both Rosie Perez and surprisingly, Martin Lawrence. So we're beginning to think a mix of races like 'Crash', but with more laughs and the classic Brooklyn attitude thrown in.Commonly listed as one of the greatest films of all time, and described as a significant cultural film by the U.S Library of Congress, we can see how important this film really is.
As previously stated, the film contains a combination of different story lines based on the individual characters. However, what Lee cleverly does is tie each story together with a common character. He doesn't say much, but Radio Raheem (Bill Nunn) is a pivotal character. With his boombox constantly thumping out Public Enemy's 'Fight the Power' he manages to annoy just about everyone. It is this character who provides the culturally sensitive ending. After a fight with the Italians in which his boombox gets destroyed, the police are called to the scene and Radio Raheem is killed in the melee. This causes a violent attack by the predominantly black crowd on the pizzeria and the subsequent lighting on fire of said building. This film certainly provides a form of social commentary and you can see Lee's frustration towards black injustice spilling out onto the screen. Quite suitably, the film ends with quotes from both Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X; showing Spike Lee's mixed feelings towards both peaceful and violent protests against oppression.

Would I recommend it? Have a quick history lesson and then go for it. See what you notice.

Beowulf (2007)

Best action animation ever - 5/5
So I saw this film a while back called 'Beowulf'. I had previously read the description and was like, yeah this sounds pretty sweet. The DVD cover also drew me in, and did not in any way lead me to believe it was an animation. So, after about five seconds into the film I was disappointed. I thought there was no way an animation could do justice to the age old epic poem that is 'Beowulf'. Boy I was wrong.
I have literally never seen an animation like it. It contained arguably more gore than your average horror! I suppose you can get away with more when animation is involved. However, the action still took my breath away. After the first scene of fighting between the fearsome Beowulf and his men and the genuinely gruesome monster Grendel I was gobsmacked. How could they create an animation like this? It was utterly fantastic. Add to all this an A-list cast including the likes of Anthony Hopkins, Ray Winstone and John Malkovich, whose role I actually didn't enjoy, and you can see why I found this flick so encapsulating.
The ending was possibly one of the greatest scenes I have ever laid my eyes on, and no, I'm not joking. Hugely cinematic scenes were created to great effect. If you haven't seen this film, just try to imagine a naked Beowulf leaping, sword outstretched, at a dragon, plunging the sword deep into the dragon's neck and sliding down the length of it and then half severing his own arm to enable him to pierce the heart of the dragon. Pretty cool right?
Now I'm not sure just how accurate to historical fact this film really is, but that is the beauty of the original poem. It was very much an embellishment of possible truths of the time. In my opinion the film captured this magic, the sort of magic that only comes from mis-truths and from overestimating the facts. The film certainly captured the excitment surrounding myths and legends of the time and it could not have been done better.
Would I recom..GO AND SEE IT!!!

Rambo: First Blood (1982)

Fair play Stalone - 3.5/5
So I saw this film the other day called 'Rambo: First Blood'. Never having been a fan of the stereotypical Hollywood muscle men (Schwarzenegger and Stalone), I found myself deprived of some of the worlds most famous films. As of now I am without knowledge on both the 'Terminator' and 'Rocky' film series. I decided to start with the 'Rambo' collection, and although I wouldn't say I'm turned onto these types of films, Stalone's performance was certainly better than I expected.
Stalone certainly managed to get the most out of a role that demanded little actual talking. He epitomised the estranged Vietnam War veteran coming home to find how much life had changed; you could feel his inner anguish. I did feel slightly awkward in places watching this film from a modern perspective however, as scenes of a rampaging brute blasting his way through a town are now, regrettably, not only confined to the screen. You couldn't really make this film now could you? Think about it.
So I've been partially swayed by Stalone and have opened up a realm of films that I would now like to watch. After a while however, I was slightly bored. The lack of speech did wear a bit thin by the end. As did the total inability of Teasle's (Brian Dennehy) police force to shoot straight. How many times do you want to miss? Slightly unbelievable, but then I suppose we are supposed to believe that John Rambo is more war machine that human.
Now I'll tell you what I really didn't like. The End! Having a man such as Rambo simply walked out of the police station by Richard Crenna, whose role as Trautman incidentally is probably the most boring and unemotional film character  I've ever seen, straight into the arms of the law. Lame.
Would I recommend it? Only so you can say you've seen this famous film. Not because you will be blown away by it.

Rescue Dawn (2006)

Some shocking scenes - 4.5/5
So I saw this film the other day called 'Rescue Dawn'. I thought ok, so Christian Bale plays a fighter pilot who is captured in Vietnam and then one day escapes, fine. You can probably guess what I imagined when I read the description of the film; I pictured an all out action with a heroic Christian Bale leading a daring escape. What I got was a darkly comic Bale playing a character obsessed with escape and, some could argue, bordering on madness by the end of the film. I was surprised, but in an extremely good way. I longed to see the thin and fragile Bale we saw in 'The Machinist' (2004) and that was exactly what we got. It seems that, if you need a lead male who can play both muscle men ('American Psycho' (2000)) and characters who can only be described as unhealthily thin, you choose Bale.
The comedy in the film can only be described as dark, with attempts to make light of the situation that faces the prisoners. The script stemmed totally from Bale, every speech was carried by his fast paced intellectuality. Unfortunately one of the main detractors of the film was Jeremy Davies. You may remember him as Daniel Farraday in 'Lost' and in this role he excelled, with his husky, slow voice building up the drama necessary in a TV series such as 'Lost'. However, I found that in 'Rescue Dawn' he was using a dialect that sounded like whispering in a foreign language. I really wanted to like his character but I just couldn't.
So far so good, but the film needed an edge. We certainly got it with the genuinely shocking scenes showing the torture of Bale's character Dieter Dengler and a very unexpected decapitation of Dengler's escape partner, which pretty much came from nowhere. BAM. Head on the floor without any hesitation. 'Rescue Dawn' managed to shock me and make me laugh, I didn't expect either.
Would I recommend it? Without a shadow of a doubt. Bale at his fragile best.

Logan's Run (1976)

Severely awesome - 5/5
So I saw this film a few months ago called 'Logan's Run'. And ohhhhhhhhhhh my god you have to watch it. I was excited before it started and was sure it would live up to my expectation of being a fairly cheesy 70's sci-fi adventure. It had surpased all my estimations by the end. From the first shot of what is obviously a small model of a futuristic city, I knew I was going to enjoy this film.
Combine a masterpiece storyline from writer William F. Nolan in which life ends at the age of 30 with the mysterious Carousel ritual, which we come to find out is just murder, and a prick of a Sandman, played by Michael York changes his stripes and falls in love, scantilly clad characters and a scene in a futuristic sex shop and you've got yourself a movie. You can add in an amazing shot of York and the wonderful Jenny Agutter wading up a river towards Washington DC, an incredibly cool but uncoordinated silver metal robot and wicked sci-fi music to boot.
As a virtual noob to the world of sci-fi but a lover of post-apocalyptic films such as 'The Book of Eli' (2010) and 'Children of Men' (2006) I was most captivated by the scenes in a destroyed Washington DC, and found myself blown away by the special effects of a movie which is almost thirty years old. And I was turned onto sci-fi forever.
Would I recommend it? Hell to the yeah. Watch!

The Invention of Lying (2009)

Just for the tearjerker moment - 3.5/5
So I saw this film a while back called 'The Invention of Lying'. After previously entering a Ricky Gervais film with skepticism at how well he could actually act and then being nicely surprised by the performance ('Ghost Town' (2008)), Imade sure not to begin this film in the same frame of mind. However, I probably should have. Where 'Ghost Town' excelled, 'The Invention of Lying' fell down.
Ok, so you're gonna write a film about a world where everybody can only tell the truth. Fine. But why does this mean that people sporadically spurt out anything contained in their head? Just becuase people can only tell the truth, it doesn't mean they say whatever is up top. That's just stupid. And that was what struck me at the start of the film. At first I was like, 'yeah this is funny, but where is it going?'. It turned out that it was going nowehere fast. The orginal sense of hilarity that you get through people blurting out whatever they think, mainly at Ricky Gervais' expense, is soon replaced by a feeling that the writers stuck to the title of the film and had no way of diverting themselves from convincing us that in this world, nobody can lie. We get it! Stop shoving it down our throats. However it was nice to see how Jennifer Garner's character began to break free of the constrictions of a society with very little opinion. Also I automatically dislike Rob Lowe after the way his character, Gervais' more talented colleague, spoke to poor Ricky.
So the film wasn't great, but Gervais' acting skills; at times they stunned me. The scene where his mother is on her death bed, I have literally never been so moved by an actors tears as I was at that point. How does he do it? Of course this movie contains Gervais' off-hand style of comedy which is present in just about everything he does, but what struck me most was how he seemed to have grown an emotional style of acting. He held the film together, it needed him.
Would I recommend it? Hmmmm yeah, but I'd say you should watch 'Ghost Town' first.

The Social Network (2010)

Pretty Good - 4/5
So I saw this film a few days ago called 'The Social Network'. Billed as one of the top movies of 2010 the film certainly had huge prestige at the time of my watching it. I had extremely high hopes for the film, yet by the end I found myself a tad dissapointed. I found myself questioning what so many people seemed to agree on, that 'The Social Network' was indeed one to watch from 2010.
From the outset I found myself bombarded with the hyperactivity we have come to expect in speech by screenplay writer Aaron Sorkin. I am sure that if he was to read this, he would find it complementary, because I am sure it was his aim to manifest a character that affected the audience in this way, and I applaud him for this. However, at times the dialogue went on a journey of its own, losing me as a viewer. I'm sure this was not what was aimed for.
Jesse Eisenberg's character Mark Zuckerberg was cast beautifully. He epitomised the type of person that we have come to label as a computer geek. Quite rightly too I might add. But the character was not one that an audience could warm to, he had very little likeability. Again, we were always meant to feel this way towards Zuckerberg, and although we would not take sides against him in the flash forward scenes that showed the two law suits taken up against him, by the end of the film we saw a dark side to Zuckerberg's nature after he effectively cut Eduardo Saverin, played ably by Andrew Garfield, out of the Facebook enterprise. Furthermore, as a viewer from England, I found myself in possession of an intense jealousy towards Eisenberg's character; I was jealous of how intellectual he was and at the same time I was jealous about the purveyed life an American scholar in a school such a Harvard leads. I'm sure you will know what I mean when I mention other characters that gave me the same feelings. I'm thinking of Denzel Washington's portayal of Rubin Carter in 'The Hurricane' (1999) who astounded us with his intelligence in a stunning film, the witty Paul Finch, played by Eddie Thomas, in the orginal 'American Pie' (1999) and 'National Lampoon's Animal House' (1978) which was one of the first to reveal to us here in sunny England the out of control, party lifestyle that is led by many US students. Whether these depictions are based on truth or wildly overestimated, it doesn't really matter. They still make us jealous.
Would I recommend 'The Social Network'? Yes, but with caution.

Oh, I didn't see you there. Welcome.
