Decided to watch this again since my gf hadn't seen it before. Not gonna lie, I enjoyed it much more the second time. The way it's directed keeps it interesting and doesn't really lack any attention grabbing material, it's thrilling and interesting the whole way through.

So, after assuming it was just going to be another of those films that I had to give a miss due to the impossibilities of organising teenage cinema visits I got to see Wreck-It Ralph. In short, it's not as good as Pixar at their best but it's still very, very good and if you have any love for Pixar's films then you should go and see it asap. The plot's good (although it could probably have done with a bit of editing), the characters are well-developed, well-rounded and genuinely sympathetic, the acting's great (Sarah Silverman being my favourite for managing to pull off one of those rare feats of an annoying character who isn't actually annoying, if that makes any sense to anyone but me) and the animation's absolutely superb. The fanservice isn't as much as I expected but it has its moments and all in all it clearly comes across as a labour of love rather than one of the shameless cash-ins Dreamworks have been vomiting out for the past few years now. I've heard a lot of people who don't at least possess some traits of nerddom claim that it wasn't very good or that it didn't grab their attention but those people are wrong.

I really, really enjoyed this film. It's extremely bizarre in so many ways and yet it's good. Tim Roth is a riot, and the surrealism in some of it really makes it much more interesting. Don't expect a riveting story, expect a bunch of great characters being put in bizarre situations over and over!

8.5/10

This movie was pretty bugged out, especially the "Pool Party" and "Lawnmower" scenes. It was a really dark tale. It was probably the creepiest horror flick I've seen since that Let Me In remake a few years back. Not too shabby

I don't know what you're talking about. The picture isn't there.

I thought it was a hell of a trippy film with a couple layers. I haven't seen it in ages but it's certainly worth a watch/rewatch.

Bad Kids Go To Hell


They really ramped up the whole cliche of hating all the characters in the movie and wanting to see them die slow painful deaths. After the first few mins. you stop caring about the characters and just want to know what's going on in the library that they are stuck in for detention. I didn't mind the slow motion shots but there may have been one too many.

I really need to look for the graphic novel though to compare it to the movie.

The Chronicles of Riddick, but I fell asleep in the last five minutes or so. It wasn't boring, I was just tired.
