A must to watch at Christmas time. My favourite Christmas film. John Landis said in an Interview that America doesn't think of Trading Places as a Christmas film, but it sure is.
It's a film that keeps on giving, every time I watch it I see something new... This time is was a young Gus Fring from Breaking Bad in prison.
A superb film which gets better the more you watch it. 5/5
Kill Dil, not Bill... Not s bad Bollywood film but this was different from other Bollywood films, the storyline wasn't great but the soundtrack was awesome. No wonder the BBC Asian Network keeps playing the song below. 3/5
If there's ever a franchise that's more ridiculous and over the top than The Expendables it's this. Doom 3 is so over the top the writers mush have been smoking some serious stuff.
Anyways.. Apart from being over the top I really enjoyed the film even though the story was exactly the same as *Spoilers* The Prestige. 3/5
Another Time Loop film which was based on the 30min short. It's very dated and quite obviously made for TV. Still the concept works and the story is pretty good. It even has a staring role for Mr Selfridge himself - Jeremy Piven! 3/5
p.s. this image below helps explain how the Box works. 4/5
Just brilliant! funny, funny and then funny again. Ice Cube really comes into his own in this film. it's stupid, wacky and way over the top but I wouldn't expect anything else for Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum 5/5
It's quite an iconic film as it contained one of Marilyn Monroe's most famous scenes. The Subway Dress
Otherwise the film is ok but clearly dated, people talking to themselves.. Seems a bit odd now but I imagine it to be perfectly normal in the 50's. I'm glad I've watched it as I can now see how modern day films have captured ideas and inspirations from these classics. 3/5
It's actually a good film and great for kids. It had my son glued for at least 15 minutes. The cast is great (real people and muppets).
I stand by my previous review that if you suspend disbelief in reality then you'll actually enjoy the film. 3/5
IMDB rated Go 7.3 which isn't bad for an IMDB rating, but to me, it's 10/10 or 5/5. That's the beauty of rating my own films as they are all relative to me and the time I watched them.
I first watched Go back in 1999 in the cinema and it brings back great memories of the of a simpler time.
Go was groundbreaking at the time with a new concept of film where the same story was shown from different peoples perspective.
With some brilliant dialogue and an awesome cast it has to be 5/5
P.S. I've still got the VHS original of the film
A unique and interesting film. Set slightly in the future (far enough to make it futuristic but not far enough so you can't relate to it) and it's a story about a guy who's a bit down in the dumps and lonely.
The futuristic AI part of the film is almost irrelevant as the undertones to the story are about Theodore seeking companionship, but it's always nice to the the future in movies.
Joaquin Phoenix who plays Theodore is a brilliant actor who's character reminded me of a slightly less nerdy Leonard Hofstadter from The Big Bang Theory.
In short, guy falls in love with Siri and she dumps him. 4/5
