Empire Records Fun little comedy about a group of twenty-something employees in an independent record shop. Hadn't seen it in at least a decade - forgot how good it was!

Skyfall. Overhyped mediocre `Bond` with an unconvincing baddy, unconvincing settings, unconvincing effects and an unconvincing ending. Saucy ladies though.

Scott, I saw it all from the start, it's one of a few, that had "All Action" in it from the start, well directed, and filmed.Wish I had recorded it, Still think RED TAILS, is/ probably going to be the best though this year. Jim. Lincoln .7
Red tails for me Jim, was quite a let down, i agree the idea behind the film is a good thing, but it didnt really show as much as id expected in the film, i felt it was just another CGI heavy unrealistic aircraft film, (IE the p51 that flips on its axis rather than actually flying like an aircraft normally does) i have met one of the original founding members of the Tuskeegee airmen (and his wife mildred, first black female pilot i believe) and listened to some of his stories, so i was expecting a lot more from the film in all honesty

Hi Scott, At least it was a "True" story, Yep, I agree with the CGI and the P51, but if you just ignore those faults, and concentrate on what the story was about, then it was not all bad. Show me any film, and I bet I could find some fault with it,:) Jim. Lincoln .7

Skyfall. Strange movie. Surprisingly static, even the action. The camera man I read loved b/w still photos. The story weird, hangs in the air, doesn't make an awful lot of sense, and is not terribly coherent. What's that stupid yellow thing on top of Bardem?? Still don't like Mr. Craig as Bond.

Avengers Assemble Meh. Some funny bits, but mostly a lot of yawn-inspiring action sequences. The giant flying space turds were the most yawnsome of the lot. Never Say Never Again The "unofficial" Sean Connery Bond film. Not bad, really. Liked the nods to the fact that Connery was getting on a bit to be playing such a physical role again. Not sure whether or not it was better than Thunderball, though!

Noticed a DVD titled 'Cockneys v. Zombies' in my local Morrisons - is it as crappy as it sounds, or is it so awful it's good ? Anybody seen it?

I've heard it's not as bad as it sounds. Not as bad as Strippers Vs. Werewolves, by any means!

The Living Daylights Dalton's first outing as 007 - not bad. Good fun, great gadgets and fight sequences - especially the fight on the Hercules at the end (although the close-ups clearly show a C-123!).

Licence to Kill Bond goes rogue in the hunt for revenge against the bad-ass drug dealer who maimed his best friend. Great stuff - Robert Davi is a great villain in this one.

See No Evil, Hear No Evil... 1989 comedy film directed by Arthur Hiller and produced by Marvin Worth. It stars Richard Pryor and Gene Wilder. Seen it many times but it's a classic.

The Road - John Hillcoat. Finally got to see this extraordinary, spare, nihilistic film. Brilliant! But, I understand, a very toned down adaptation of the book!!

Superman On blu-ray. Still a great film, but the blu-ray does tend to show up some of the flaws quite badly. 8/10 Sleepy Hollow Tim Burton's Gothic horror. Great fun. 7/10 Jaws On blu-ray. This is the restored version that was shown in cinemas in June. Still as awesome as ever. 10/10

Skyfall x 2 Second best Bond film ever, after Casino Royale. Best Bond ever, no question - Craig is the man. Gambit Fun matinee, packed with giggles and laughs. Not spectacular though, I might advise others to wait for it to appear on DVD Moggy

The Whisperers 1967 I can't believe that such a wonderful "kitchen sink drama" can have passed me by for so long, but I hadn't even heard of this film a week ago. Fantastic performance by Dame Edith Evans as the paranoid and lonely old lady, living in poverty and near squalor, dependant upon the National Assistance Board for new shoes "these let the rain in, you see", fantasizing about the money which will one day come to her. Great support from Eric Portman as her reluctantly returning husband (the Welfare twists his arm) and Ronald Fraser as the dodgy son. Shot in black and white, amongst the grimy clearance areas of mid-1960s Oldham, making it very local and special to me. Definitely a keeper!
