Film notes

This covers two months

Prince Of Persia - 3/5 Fun
The Sorceror's Apprentice - 3/5 Better than expected
Aliens in the Attic 3/5
The King's Speech - 5/5 A better balanced and more thoroughly excellent film than I thought it might be; a little bit more than oscar-bait
The Time Traveller's Wife - 3/5 - now I know where Russell Davies got his ideas from
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo - 5/5 - wonderful and memorable. I liked it so much that I bought (and read) the trilogy it was based on. The next two are on order from LoveFilm.
Machete - 3/5 Silly
Race to Witch Mountain 3/5
Tamara Drewe 3/5 I want to give it more as there were some lovely moments but...
The Green Hornet 4/5 Did it for me
Monsters 5/5 One of the best sf/horror type films I've ever seen. Not perfect but a stunning achievement for $15k. We are the monsters - not an original idea but incredibly well executed. The only flaw was the occasional longueur, but I'm sure it will be one of my films of the year.
X-Men: First Class 4/5 Good, solid Marvel. Interplay between Eric and Charles gives it the extra point.
The Green Lantern 3/5 Competent, but it was DC...

  1. Have you seen Inside Job or Melancholia?

    Due to various changes in routine, I now see very few DVDs, but they are two that I am very much looking forward to and I'd love to hear your opinion on.
