Layer Cake:- Very good suprising gangster movie, that doesn't follow the same usual cliched path like many other wannabie Guy Ritchie gangster flicks.

Contantine- Bad bad bad bad, a very bad rip off to The Prophecy with bad acting, bad story, and very cheesy weapons against evil.

Gumball Rally - Very entertaining you could call it a prototype to the popular Cannonball Run, it's a shame they didn't do a sequel where they had to race back to New York.

Junkman - Not as good as Gone in 60 seconds, but had some excellent car crashes, yet the story was non existent.

I recently watched Mindhunters. That was an awesome film. Don't believe the critics on that one. It's like a cross of Saw and Assault on Precinct 13 (Remake).

As for The Longest Yard, I'll try to watch it tonight, considering I have a hockey tournament and a football game.

Watch out for 2 cameo's in Fear and Loathing.

lock, stock and two smoking barrels -not as funny as advertised, though a good movie none the less.

hitchikers guide to the galaxies. - different than I expected, pleasingly entertaining on the level of Mars Attacks.
I enjoyed both of them.

See Rushmore and The Graduate now!
The Longest Yard(2005 version)was funny until *spoiler* caretaker died, then it just dragged and draggged.
He died in The Original as well, but at least it didn't drag after.

I saw Lord Of War last night:
here are my thoughts:
Based on actual events, Nicholas Cage stars as Yuri Orlov, a globetrotting arms dealer, while trying to stay one step ahead of a relentless interpol agent.
While nothing great, the film is quite good, with good performances from the cast.
I'd say, don't listen to the critics, go see it.
It probably should have been trimmed by at least 15 minutes, since it runs at a long 122 minutes, but it's rarely ever boring.

If you like Wes Andersons other films(such as The Life Aquatic and Royal Tenenbaums) then you'll probably like it.

I watched The Life Aquatic last night. Not really sure what to make of it. I enjoyed it, but can't see myself watching it again. Had a similar reaction to Tenenbaums.

Well I neither loved it nor hated it... it was just a reasonable way to pass a couple of hours. Must check out the extras though as they look quite good.

My Son and I both watched it.  It was not as scary as hoped, but both of us thought it was very good film.  Not being as graphic and devilish with the head-twist, etc...was a bit of a letdown though.  I was hoping for a movie that scared the crap outta me.

Robots: Okay Film

Family Guy Movie: Awesome! It was hilarious.

Bubble Boy: Okay film.

Holes: Pretty good.

Bad Boys: Good action film

Sandlot 1: Okay film. I still love it back from when I first saw it in 1995.

Red vs. Blue Season 3: Funny stuff. Go to Gamestop and watch the first two seasons before you see this.

Electra Glide In Blue -

A very unusual 70s cop movie, in a way that it's very homo erotic rather than the hard boiled cops that they usually had in the 70s, still good though.

I watched the following movies with my nephew over the weekend.

Evil Dead II -

Excellent as ever after all these years, still funny but not as extreme as the first Evil Dead.

Army of Darkness -

IMO this will never be part of the Evil Dead series as this was aimed more at the kids market like everything else was in the early 90s and the same thing is happening now.  It was okay but still not as good as ED or ED II.

Blade -

Still cool, and the beginning is still excellent, but with bad CGI effects.

Blade II -

Even better than the first film.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show -

Funny as ever, Tim Curry is brilliantly cast as Frank.

Misery -

Like Silence of the Lambs this movie verges on campness even when it's supposed to be seriously scary but you end up laughing, like the scene where he uses his leg to trip her up.

Psycho -

The way horror movies should always be made, where everything is brightly lit, no false jumps, no messing, when something happens it happens, out of all those modern films he saw above, the only scene that made him jump was when the detective.....

Bubba Ho Tep -

Still funny, And Campbell and Davis are excellent in their rolls as Elvis and JFK.

Haught Tension - The biggest pile of shite ever committed to celluloid.

The film started off okay, the death scene at the beginning was a little silly, but I was willing to let that slide, but the so called twist made no logical sense whatsoever to the point of being beyond stupid.

This made the plotline of Plan 9 from Outer Space look like a masterpiece.  

This is your typical Eurocrap no logic horror movie that Argentio is famous for, where the gore is turned on full, but major plot holes are turned up even fuller.

I can't believe this has got rave reviews from critics and moviegoers; it baffles me when the same people slag off Paul W Anderson and Uwe Bowl yet praise this pile of donkey shite.

I don't mind a horror film that stretches the logic barrier, I love David Cronenberg’s strange and weird tales, but when this film does a Fight Club out of the blue, your left shouting at the screen WHAT???

Instead of being tense and scared, you just sit there dumb founded at how laughably bad this movie is. This film should be up for ridicule on the MST3K, it’s that bad.

Saw The 40 Year Old Virgin yesterday and thought it was an ok movie. Best deserves a 6 out of 10 for me.

Then today, I finally caught The Legend of Beggar Vance on TV and found it slightly above average. 6.5 out of 10.
