True Romance (1993)
Seen this film so many times now, its such a good film so I never get bored, has one of my favourite scenes(the hotel room stand off) in any film in at the end.
I've seen this film before as well but I was showing it to my girlfriend for a laugh because she used to have a weird stalker.
There Will Be Blood (2008)
Not really sure about this film, it was good but I'm not sure I'll rush to watch it again straight away, however I wouldn't refuse to watch it again as it wasn't a bad film. The acting is great, with really convincing roles and you really get a feeling of knowing a lot about the character and feel the depth of their story. The story itself was also very interesting, a very well put together movie.
This was a good film, and I can't believe I've only just seen it for the first time! Great performances by all the cast and full of action.
The only reason I watched this film was because Woody Harrelson is in it. Can't say I was really expecting much from the reviews I heard but anyway it turned out to be alright, I would watch it again, just not anytime soon. Some fairly good action scenes in it, Josh Hartnett is great as well.
Jackie Brown (1997)
Been meaning to watch this for a while since I find all work by Quentin Tarantino amazing, however this film seemed a bit lacking of the usual spark in his films, not sure what it is. Maybe its that there wasn't enough killing :D. Great soundtrack though, Across 110street seems to match Jackie so well, the airport scene seems sort of iconic in a way.
I'd seen bits of this here and there but never all the way through in one go and tbh I probably wont be again anytime soon. The film was alright. Although I've liked James McAvoy in other roles, he just didn't seem to suit this one and I found him to be really annoying throughout the film and that somewhat ruined it for me.
Æon Flux (2005)
Both the acting and storyline are kind of lame and so, this film gets a 6 star from me, due to a few decent action scenes and of course the main saviour of the film, the smoking hot Charlize Theron, who is probably the only reason most people watch this film!
American Gangster (2007)
Was pretty good, quite long winded but it was carried well so that you don't notice the length of the film. Great acting of course.
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)
Anything with Marlon Wayans, Channing Tatum and Dennis Quaid in is bound to cheesy as, which it was, but other than that the film redeemed itself with some pretty good action scenes.
Had this on DVD a while and have been meaning to watch it, many people told me not too because its really bad, but anyway I watched it and tbh it wasn't the worst thing ever, but it wasn't really goo either, the acting from Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, was, to be fair, terrible, however shes smoking hot so she gets let off, the most confusing thing though, is Shia LaBeouf's acting seems to bhave got worse when compared to the previous film. All in all it gets a 6/10 for having lots of fairly decent action(which I'm a sucker for).
Watched this with my girlfriend, we've both seen it quite a few times so weren't fully concentrating on the film...
Tango & Cash (1989)
Was sitting with my girlfriend and her mum, and her mum put this on, so obviously I had my doubts as to how good the film would be but it turns out she actually has good taste in films! This film is pretty full of action, and has two great action heroes to carry it out!
Mr. Popper's Penguins (2011)
Wouldn't normally watch stuff like this, but it had Jim Carrey in(who is hilarious in everything!) and so I watched it and it actually turned out to be good, and I enjoyed watching it, especially with the family :). Combines Jim Carrey's humour with some good old family fun!
Love Actually (2003)
Watch this film every christmas with my family. Its a great christmas film, one of my favourites. All the cast fit their roles perfectly, with my personal favourite being Rowan Atkinson's character, closely followed by Bill Nighy's. The whole story is actually really well thought out with all the characters linking together nicely.
The Expendables 2 (2012)
Been waiting to see this for a long time since I missed it at the cinema. It didn't dissapoint! Packed full of action and great characters. Don't think it tops the first but I still really enjoyed it. Probably a film thats not for everyone but a must if you love action packed films! All the new characters get great introductions as well.
The Truman Show (1998)
Saw this film a long time ago, thought it was good then, just haven't seen it for ages. Saw it in hmv for about a £1 so bought it straight away! Great film, Jim Carrey is great in everything to be fair and this is no exception, some good laughs to be had from this film, with some great lines. Some emotional scenes as well, an all round great film, another one all the family could enjoy.
A Clockwork Orange (1972)
This is a good film however I have the same criticism for this film that I have seen in most reviews of it, whats the point of it? Having said that, I'm not one to ask questions about a good thing, and this is an amazing piece of work, a masterpiece maybe, albeit a very strange masterpiece. Acting is top quality, theme is controversial, but great in the same!
The Boondock Saints (1999)
Not really sure about this one, I'd put it between 5 and 6 stars if I could. Doesn't really seem like a serious shooting film but it has a few fairly decent gun scenes. Some pretty terrible acting in this, find myself really wanting to punch this David Della Rocco guy...
Home Alone (1990)
Classic Christmas movie for me, have to see this every year. Great movie!
A Grand Day Out (1990)
Always loved Wallace and Gromit, and I was searching for something to watch on Tv and this was on, seen it so ma ny times before thanks to, recording, video, dvd and TV but its still great!
The Wrong Trousers (1993)
This was on straight after 'A Grand Day Out' and so couldn't change the channel. Think this one might actually be my favourite Wallace & Gromit film.
Watched this for the first time, kind of late I guess since it was about the 21st ;P. Wasn't bad, but it wasn't really that good either, just kind of like all the other end of the world films, massive disasters all around the world and a small group survive.
Watched this early in the morning on Christmas day, a rewatch of course as I've seen it numerous times before. Not quite as good as the first, but still the second best in the Home Alone franchise!
Seen this film so many times, especially the second half (got the extended version on DVD and so its in two halfs), some great batlle scenes. This film is the second third to a masterpiece of course.
Taken 2 (2012)
Finally got round to watching this. Liam Neeson is great, as usual, however it feels like the film lacks the spark of the first, its still a pretty good film though. Packed full of all the action and kidnappers getting their ass kicked that we all loved in the first Taken.
The Mask (1994)
One of my favourite films ever, so funny, Jim Carrey at his greatest in my opinion. Such a good film.
