July movie update

These are the films that we have received from Lovefilm.com and watched on TV and at the cinema over the past few months (since the last update) - with my ratings out of ten from my movie list on IMDB... there have been quite a few!

Hellboy 7
Thriller with some great effects and a comic edge. The sequel has been added to the lovefilm list.

Le goût des autres 6

Running on Empty 7
A good story that featured River Phoenix who was a fine actor... it's such a shame.

A Good Year 4
A painful Russell Crowe "comedy" which came close to being switched off early.

Vicky Cristina Barcelona 5
I like Woody Allen films (though Matchpoint was a car wreck) and this is just not very good. If it were from a new writer, it would never have been made - and the narrator was so very annoying.

Velvet Goldmine 6
Worth a view if you remember glamrock. A bit weird and arty in places.

High School Musical 3: Senior Year 5
If you like the other 2 films, you'll love this. I couldn't get into it. Zac Efron is a pleasant sight though.

Last Chance Harvey 7
We watched this and the next film on holiday. This one is light and fluffy... the next dark and depressing.

Revolutionary Road 7

Eagle Eye 6

Broken Flowers 7

Juste une question d'amour 8
A very good gay film with cute out gay actor Cyrille Thouvenin.

Postcards from the Edge 6

Iron Man 7

Defiance 7
Dodgy accents, but a thrilling true story.

Star Trek 7
I know the treckies are divided - I thought it was fine.

Everything Is Illuminated 7
Pete liked this a lot - and it was pretty impressive.

Bottle Rocket 5

The Ice Storm 7

Rushmore 6

New to this blog? Take a look here


  1. Rushmore is fucking ace dude, it's never a 6, no way comrade!

  2. I'd stretch to a 7, but no higher! I think we had a bit of overkill on Wes Anderson films at that point.

  3. You watched High School Musical?!!!

  4. I am a broad Church. Actually, I could see it was a fun romp a bit like Grease (It's the word you know). But didnt have the quality songs.

    (It was Petes choice though!)

  5. Yeah, yeah, blame him indoors...
