Really interesting well told story shot over a 12 year period. More hard hitting for me in my very early 40's rather than a young 20 year old. Or at least the group of early 20's who were sitting behind me bored off their rocker. Check it out

I was really looking forward in seeing this. The problem for me with so well known comedian actors is I just could not get to grips with their straight acting roles and the accents that many of them put on again did not sit well with me . Brendan Gleeson again stole the show such a great actor. Do check it out but go in with low expectations for best results.

NOAH going to see Noah reminded me of being a young child. At christmas time there was always this one toy that you wanted, then got but felt cheated and disappointed after a big build up. This film is just the same for me . Great trailer but the film itself was nothing at all to match it. Average story line, far too long and just really lacked a bit of spark. A shame really

certainly for a younger audience, loved the last one that came out but failed to get swept up into this one i am afraid. In saying that my 7 year old daughter loved it . For me it was more like a episode than a movie

I really got pulled into this film, excellently acted from start to finish and a story line to match. Well worth a trip to the cinema

I'd buy that for a dollar, yeah they managed to get a few of the original great lines in to this remake. Not a bad remake but nowhere near the style of the original back in its day, even though it is badly dated now. Do I see 3 of the present day ones being made ? No not a chance. Hope it does well in the box office, but it will not smash any records.

Brilliant film loved it from start to finish, the three hours just flew by. Leonardo DiCaprio stole the show for me. All I could think about after was where can I get those Lemon's and not a scratch on the car. For me the best sequence in the film . Hilarious.

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Hobbit 2 reminded me why I loved the first 3 Lord of the Ring movies. It had it all the original brilliance of those films while maybe half a hour too long for me, I would have been tempted to pause the film and stretch my legs but realised that was'nt possible. I would reccomend the 2d version, 3d i feel is very dull visually . So yes forget about the first hobbit as lets face it it wasnt great and go see this one, it's back to it's very best.

The clips of this make it look like a comedy, not really though. Really good story and very well told from start to finish, if you want to see something different and are older than 18 and my word I am check it out

There are things you do for your children from time to time that you are going to regret. While this wasnt one of them but it was very close though all the same Not a great flick, lost its way towards the end for me. Possibly wait for DVD

Gravity 3D

A Lot of hype surronding this film, before I saw it the trailer really did nothing for me so I went in with low expectations. Yes the 3D is good as good as was Avatar, the story line is based obviously in space but also deals with loss. Enjoyable flick but I would'nt go rushing out to see it all the same.
