Pacific Rim - 7/10

if you can put up with Sean Slater (from Eastenders) and Jax (from Sons Of Anarchy) duke-ing it out for the worst actor of all time award - to be fair they've been delt a dodgy hand re: dialogue - however Idris Elba's character makes it work - then this is an enjoyable romp about some monsters from another dimension being biffed about by some giant robots

deffo in B-movie territory for geeks - but i think this is what Gillieum Del Torro was going for

some spectacular set peices - though too much CGI at some points... and shame we didn't see more of the 'red' robot with 3 arms

Prisoners. Very enjoyable yarn, if a little bit too long.  Reminded me of Zodiac. Gyllenhall and Jackman are both good throughout. And it keeps you guessing right up to the end. A solid 8.

Office Space. Timeless classic.

It's bound to be a let-down.  I'll have a sniff round Sky when it comes on there, but I'll be prepared to move on after 10 minutes.

Re: **The Bedrock "Rate The Last Movie You Watched" Thread**

Watched Alpha Papa the other day, was actually quite good, some real laugh out loud moments and Coogan is on fine form as Partridge, ill give it a solid 7

Re: **The Bedrock "Rate The Last Movie You Watched" Thread**

So, my Hobbit – The Desolution of Smaug-review. If you’re interested. I try to keep this spoiler-free.

Loved it, but not wholeheartedly. This was the first Peter Jackson-movie that takes place in the Middle Earth where I was bored at times. Actually, just the one time. The scenes in the wood elves castle felt over long, and in need of editing. The whole Tauriel-business was pretty unnecessary, but I guess the movie producers felt that there had to be at least one female character in the movie. And the love triangle, please… Evangelina Lily is thankfully very nice to look at.

Also some of the CGI was pretty shoddy, which frankly shocked me a bit. In trying to make Legolas look younger they seemed to make him look older.

Now too the good stuff. Once more, the sets were amazing. The Lake Town and Erebor were pretty much exactly like I imagined them. They felt also very real. And Smaug was just fantastic! I guess that most of the CGI money went into making him, which is after all very important. And Benedict Cumberpatch absolutely killed it as Smaug’s voice (I do believe me motion captured a lot of Smaug’s movements too though). He’s perfect in everything. Beorn was also amazing. I felt the need to shout YEAH MOTHERFUCKERS HERE’S BEORN! when he charged from the woods after the company.

Too long didn’t read: Go see it if you love Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth, if you’re a Tolkien-purist, maybe not… There was very little faithfulness to the book. And they made a lot of stuff up. But hell, we got to see Angmar! That was the mountain prison Gandalf visited. It was actually a tomb of the Witch King of Angmar.

Ok, now you can start making fun of me for liking this sort of stuff.

Agreed. Watched this last night - nice and dark, had a Silence of the Lambs feel about it texturally, in parts. Gyllenhall knocking it out the park again. Always delivers intense, layered characters. Could have done with shortening the middle act and stringing out the tension at the end a bit, but overall a solid 8 as well.

John Digweed has two other brothers called Paul and Ringo

Re: **The Bedrock "Rate The Last Movie You Watched" Thread**

We're The Millers.  7.5/10

I didn't expect much out of this, but it actually surprised me despite the shite Hollywood ending.  Oh, and if Jennifer Aniston still gives you a stiffy, this is the movie for you.

Love Is All You Need. 8/10

It just goes to prove that Americans do shit chick flick movies and that they should take a cue from the Danes.  This had enough twists and turns, dark humour and schmaltz to keep everyone happy.  The writing is stellar and the odd bit of having a Welshman speaking mostly English, yet some Danish throughout whilst being spoken to in Danish was kind of cool and plausible.  Apparently the director won an Oscar for her previous film and it shows.  Great cinematography.

Re: **The Bedrock "Rate The Last Movie You Watched" Thread**

Hannah - Odd film, it wasn't sure if it was serious or funny, watchable enough though.

Re: **The Bedrock "Rate The Last Movie You Watched" Thread**

The Taking of Pelham 123 - 5/10. It's okay, I think it's meant to be funny, but it isn't

Re: **The Bedrock "Rate The Last Movie You Watched" Thread**

Man Of Steel - 9/10

though Henry Cavill (sp) was very good as Superman/Kent and the one from Boardwalk Empire (Michael Shannon) was really very good as Zod - chewing up scenery all over the shop

some very visually pleasing CGI and they had been joined up with the non CGI very well - not like in Pacific Rim where is was too obvious in places - the whole thing looked lovely in HD

story was good with enough back fill and content and set pieces - and a good ending [spoiler]killing Zod[/spoiler]

a shame i didn't get to see it in the pictures really - and rarely you can say that about a film these days

Nope. She liked the Hobbit too. But unlike Strudders she had very little love for Man of Steel. Neither did I though either. God that was boring and pompous.
