X-Men: Days of Future Past

I'm not the biggest X Men fan, but this was a well thought out and fantastically told tale with decent acting. Very enjoyable as a stand alone film.

Fantastically fiendish fun! Angelina was born to throw on some horns and stalk the woods with her trusty staff. Fantastic looking and well thought out, it doesn't completely shun the villainous side, but just explains everything properly. Lovely!

BOOOM! BLAST! KABLAM!!! Jon Snow Vs the Volcano - as someone who loves that time period and history of Pompeii, this is right up my street! Dodgy looking, terribly cheesy, but enjoyable!

The Other Woman

Well the First Wives Club was released in 1996 - suppose in HollywoodLand that means Time for a Remake! What could have been a clever, witty, great piece of classic comedy with some slapstick moments became a bizarre mash of I'm not sure what. Married lady (Judd Apatows wife in real life and Paul Rudd's in every other movie) finds out her husband has been cheating when his girlfriend (Diaz) arrives at his house. With this they form a friendship, I think, to take him down on his cheating ways. They then find out he has another lady, cause why not... the not pretty, rich, sleazy guy - who could resist? Terrible chemistry between the actresses made it hard to believe they were friends in this film on or off screen. A real mess of a film, watchable if nothing else on, but not worth full price ticket. Extra star cause I have a soft spot for Judd Apatow and Paul Rudd and the pranks they pulled on the bad man in this film.

Divergent

Extremely faithful to the book, but still lacking that ooomph of darkness and angst that should be entagled in fighting for what you believe in. Kate Winslet steals the show as the villain overlord wanting to make everything proper and kill Divergents. Enter our Divergent, Tris, a cherub faced little dote with perfect hair throughout. She learns to kick all sorts of ass and get twisted up with topless boys (swoon/giggle) as she gains independence and freedom from her days of being selfless and mirrorless. She even gets a tattoo - badass! It looks great, the city looks proper disheveled from the wars and battles on Earth, which sets up nicely for the sequels - I assume. And the story ticks along nicely with some great scenes of your own fears becoming reality - but not really. Which is the bit where the dip occurs within the book as well as the film. They happen, but not really, it counts but it kinda doesn't. A long haul film - enjoyable and worth a watch for fans of dystopian futuristic teenage novels and lets be honest, aren't we all?

About Last Night

Bor-Ring! And somewhat offensive to people. Warning; spoilers ahead...who am I kidding, you're not stoopid enough to watch this, the little woman made me go! Boy and Girl get the roide - they meet up the next evening for a proper date and bring their friends along, so that it doesn't seem like a date. The friends meet, get along and fall into the most boring relationship on the planet. They move in together, he has to buy a dining table (this is nearly the deal breaker) they say I Love You (after moving in) and then when male realises that female is sucking his will to live (dinging room table) he thinks they need to sort things out; he buys a puppy. The poor dog is dragged through another hour of almost cheating with ex, getting a job as a bar man, a negative pregnancy test and eventually breaking up cause they're not happy - again, that dining room table!! Their friends keep getting the roide, while dressed as chickens (new fetish I learnt about) and in the end trick them into getting back together. BAAAAAAAAAAAAADly acted, Badly scripted, just Bad. I feel shame from having seen this!!

The Lego Movie

Funtastic!! Great little story about how one person, no matter how unassuming or interesting can really change the face of the planet, how everyone is special in their own way! as lame as that sounds; its shown truthfully in this film. As truthfully as it can be having Batman, Wonderwoman, Superman, Green Lantern, TMNT, Lincoln and every other character your imagination can come up with, as the star filled cast have plenty of fun with their characters. Fantastically filled with witty dialogue and fantastic models, creations and every brick/bit you ever stood upon barefoot in the dark. In a cinema packed with children/families/young fathers; not one child wasn't enthralled or quiet. Lego knowing all too well how much we bitch and moan about "Uhh, we need plain Lego, we can build ourselves not all this LOTR character made Lego. There's no imagination or heart and kids suck these days, blah blah blah... The computer games?? Oh they're fun, but they're not as good as my own imagination of playing with the blocks" Lego sure showed us who's still boss!

RoboCop

Entering the screen, I figured this was going to be a complete mess of a train wreck of a film mashing well known one liners into a guy within a black steel suit. Nearly right! Missing the action, blood, crime, cursing and all the other bold things expected from a cop film, we see RoboCop (not unlike Iron Man on Batmans Bike) looking for those that left him the floating head that he really is. There was something missing, Cornish was a bit bleh and Oldman channeling his Commisioner Gordon to no end, we see camera jerking and trying to be high tech gizmos (Iron Man) while Keaton does a weird Batman/Beetlejuice/Evil hybrid thing thats a bit all over the place. Still, they tried! If they had a 15s rating; maybe things could have had more effect.

The cast; my god, the cast tried! Dire and forgettable... I really can't remember what it was now. Frankenstein Vs Gargoyles?
