I really enjoyed The Fighter. Christian Bale was very convincing as a junkie trying to relive his glory days while his brother had a real shot at a title. My only disappointment was that the movie ended before the Mickey Ward v. Arturo Gatti fights. They were the best offensive fights I've ever seen.

I was pleasantly surprised with this movie upon a second viewing the first time I saw it. I was bored to tears but this time I actually gave it a chance and really paid attention to what was being said/going on and it's a very smart political thriller imo.




Meh it was okay but I totally prefer the original for the cheese factor. They lose that when the movie is dripping in CGI.

I'm about as far from a trekky as they come, but I still love this film. It's full of the kind of depth, mystery and intrigue that's so lacking in a lot of other sci-fi films I've seen. Possibly my favourite sci-fi of all time.



I'd seen this a couple of times before, and I can see why I didn't really enjoy it so much. It certainly takes a lot longer to get going, and it's a much more complex story, but I loved it on the last viewing, so it just goes to show that all it takes is a little patience to enjoy this one. Not sure if it's better than the first film of the franchise, but it's definitely somewhere near that level.



Much, much better than I expected it to be. Really well written, great effects, and it literally had me wondering how it was all gonna end 'til the last few minutes. Good to see Adrian Brody taking on such an unusual role for him and making quite a good meal of it too.



Started really well, but I was practically dying of boredom after the first half hour or so. They killed off Steve Coogan's character too soon dammit!

I ended up watching this the other day and I love it more and more with each viewing.

I am a big John Carpenter fan but this and Starman were real low points for me

As for me recently:

I vaguely remembered this being OK when I saw it years ago but it is actually pretty crap. Prisoners are controlled by explosive collars linked to another (unknown to them) prisoner which is a half decent concept but it fails miserably on closer inspection

I guess nostalgia is not always a good thing. Although Mimi Rogers tight trousers did distract me now and again.
