The Hobbit: The Desolation Of Smaug (2013) Review

Yes! I got to see a big film at its premier night and it was great! Few Hobbits, Couple Dwarfs and a DRAGON! Smaug you scene stealing marvel. What more could you want? And in case you were wondering, yes the sequel is better than the first film. It had better flow, more action and you know stuff actually happened most of the time. It’s essential what you get when adapting the events of the book rather than the journey featured in the fist film. The characters are very interesting, got to know more of the dwarfs and a whole bunch of new characters that will feature in the last film, such as Bard The Bowman and Thranduil (Elf King). Out of everything featured in this film I must say that the visuals effects are by far the most stand out improvement over the first film. Smaug was a sight to see and worth the price of submission. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013) Review

Nearly didn’t see this film but luckily for you readers I did and do not regret it at all. A really good, entertaining film, November and December are looking like a great couple of cinema months. The first Hunger Games wasn’t all that great, it had potential and I did like some of it but it did miss the mark a bit. This film does wonders seeing its potential and going for it, changing directors seem to work for sequels this year. It’s a more thrilling story, it’s a well-paced and smartly presented film and if you are a fan apparently it’s more loyal to the book. It’s just winning on all fronts, or it’s as good as Caesars teeth are white. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

Gravity (2013) Review

Get out the road maps because those satnavs are useless now. Yeah that’s right Tim finally saw Gravity, about bloody time!  Wanted to see this for ages but for various reasons had to wait nearly a month. The film is very powerful and is visually beautiful with equally impressive character development. The 3D is used in a way that is extremely rare in most films, It’s actually used. Gravity uses no gravity to actually for once justify 3D as a cinema format, stuff floating around and what have you. Other than the visuals the other great aspect is the character development from Sandra Bullock, seeing her survive the ordeal this story portrays is a fascinating character study. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

Prisoners (2013) Review

I can’t seem to review this film without spoilers so be warned there are spoilers.  I have been convinced to see this film through bloggers and friends. Not the type of films I would review, various reasons for that but I did and it was a good film, it’s just not my cup of tea, great film just not one I’d watch again but I would recommend it to others. It’s a very thrilling film and if I had kids it would disturb me a great deal. The acting is brilliant and whilst the film is horrendously long the story is griping throughout. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

RoboCop (Trailer #1) Review

Holiday = Late Review.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!! Sorry it’s just haha oh my. Normally you would see me angry when they remake a classic science fiction film with this darker zero fun seriousness all modern takes do like Total Recall last year. But with this trailer I just can’t stop laughing, it looks bad but really funny bad so I’ll be watching this plane crash. If this trailer is a true representation of the film then we are going to have a lot of fun in February. Changing this review up as well, going to have a What I liked and What I didn’t like Section instead of Top Scenes. Enjoy the review and please tell me your initial reactions to this new trailer.

World War Z (2013) Review

World War Z is nothing special but it’s alright and whilst I won’t be seeing it again I don’t regret seeing it today. The story is the weakest part but the characters and acting was pretty good, some moments even made me laugh, sadly this was not on purpose and I nearly cried of laughter. Some warnings going into this film are that this isn’t a horror film nor is it an outbreak film, it feels more like an action thriller that happens to feature Zombie esq people (They shouldn’t run or climb). Anyway this review will not be a happy ordeal and I plan to put a few spoilers around the place so watch out for them.

Indiana Jones Trilogy Review

This trilogy review was picked by my followers and I would like to thank you for picking a good set of films yet again. Not too surprising that this trilogy won and let’s face it who doesn’t love Indiana Jones, it was easily one of the best trilogies ever made (TRILOGY!). I am not including that film that shall not be named, a clue though it had a stuttering fool and aliens. All three of these films are filed with fun and adventure and I am happy to be reviewing them. “Don’t look, Marion! Keep your eyes SHUT!” This was clearly referring to the newest installment I will also be having another poll to decide what Christmas films I should review for you guessed it Christmas. Again thanks for the votes.
