secret life of walter mitty - not bad - went on a bit in the middle - obviously far fetched but a nice ending - 7/10

John Carter: 4/10. Annoyingly internally inconsistent and boring to boot.
The American: 7/10. Be warned, an action film this is not.

Reality is not based on definitions or word associations or quotes from a book. Reality is what you have after all the books have been put away and you keep your mouth shut. You don't need language to know reality. Anything that requires language to make itself known is not reality but the artifice of words, simply word associations, predicates on paper that can nowhere else be seen.

12 years a slave - gritty and harrowing. Nearly walked out twice as it was so brutal to watch in places. I also felt very uncomfortable throughout - which i believe the director Steve McQueen wanted to achieve.
I don't think there was a dry eye in the cinema when it ended. Superb film but not one for the faint hearted and take tissues if you do go. I really hope it wins best picture at the oscars. 10/10 for brilliance

Jack Ryan. 7/10- enjoyable and didn't really drag too much, shame it had kiera knightly in but but still good enough even with her there

Keeper of lost causes. Considering its only 97 minutes then its a very efficient and capable adaption of the book. Nordic noir thriller 8.5/10. Theres a scene where a big explain of some of the motivations and that is really beautifully shot.

Mud 6.5/10

Bit of a slow burner, but does keep the viewer interested.

The Chaser (Korean) 8.5/10

Another excellent Korean film- recommend to anyone who has interest in this genre.

The Limey (1999) - 8/10. Great photography of US west coast, LA and Big Sur area. A satisfying revenge thriller. The outcome is never in doubt, but it's an enjoyable journey. Using clips from Terence Stamp's performance in Poor Cow from the 1960s, to evoke his character's past, was really effective.

If you haven't seen it yet check out The Yellow Sea by the director of The Chaser. It's a great film.

That Awkward Moment: 3/10 (and that's being kind; avoid it).
Out of the furnace: 4/10. Very violent.
The Armstrong Lie: 6/10. A bit boring after a while but still revelatory.
Lone survivor: 5/10. Moral dilemmas explored passably well.
I Frankenstein: 8/10. By far the best of the bunch, although not in the least resembling RLS's book!

Elysium - 5/10 - A decent idea executed poorly, very slow paced with poor performances from some good actors.

The Lone Ranger - 8/10 - Actually really enjoyed this film, didnt expect to with all the bad reviews. Had a good story with some good comedic moments. And as usual you cant really fault Jonny Depp

Oldboy (the Korean original) - A classic although not perfect. 8.5/10.

I've not watched it in a few years and I'd forgotten some of the more surreal bits of it.
