tinker tailor soldier spy-
go's without saying this is the one that right now looks set to sweep the oscars. oldman will get his and i the film will certainly win art direction plus has a great shot at cinematography, best director, adapted screenplay and best film. mark strong could be in there for support also. beautifully crafted film terrific high class stuff.
9/10


midnight in paris-
very enjoyable throwaway guff, definately woody allens best for years and years. loved all the cultural nods and references. in owen wilson allen has finally found someone that plays him better than he does.
8/10

Could you please give a brief review of the film based on the film's own merits and not if appeals to the Oscars or not?

Midnight Cowboy - 10/10

One of the GOAT movies for me. Dustin Hoffman's performance

Surpisingly I really enjoyed Midnight in Paris proabably because it was so different and I loved the concept of him travelling to his favourite time period each night.

Blue Valentine: 8/10
Really good, dark movie. So orgininal showing how a relationship can break down over time without either person doing anything really wrong such as cheating.

I'm contemplating whether to watch Blood Diamond, A Beautiful Mind or Donnie Darko tonight if anyone has any suggestions.

all solid movies

beautiful mind > donnie >>> blood diamond

diamond is probably the most entertaining, beautiful mind is the most boring, and donnie makes you think a bit

I reviewed Point Blank somewhere in this thread. It's kind of a grittier more realistic version of Taken. I really liked it.

Heavenly Creatures was good but the 95% rating makes it seems much better than it was..

I, Robot - 80%.
The 2nd part of the movie was overdone. The pacing was perfect up until the halfway point, then it seemed like they were just trying to make the movie longer without adding any substance to the content.

The (new) Thing. 7.5/10

It got panned pretty bad by critics for not offering anything new, but it did a great job of re-creating the feel and setting up the 1982 version. I thoroughly enjoyed it as a fan of the 82 version.

Lifted - 6/10 (NETFLIX)

Good family movie, but in the movie there was way to much singing going on. Some ways to improve this movie would be putting more drama to the movie. Some examples would be the mother being raped, or the son being beaten by the grandfather while his mother watches. It was good in the beginning, and middle, but the ending was unbearable. The kid had one heck of a voice in the first 3 mins of the movie. They used the same songs he sang in the beginning in the contest (recycled) and that was noticed. Movie could of been something.
