Hugo (2011) 8
A visually stunning film with a sweet story. The two young actors were superb – overall, great entertainment in a very stylised Paris in the 1930's.
Weekend (2011) 5
Meant to be a gay “crossover” film. Both Pete and I were not impressed, especially with one of the characters who was simply annoying and stereotypically gay.
50/50 (2011) 6
A comedy drama that cynically used cancer as the main theme. It would have been a far better film without the childish comedy.
The Adventures of Tintin: The Secret of the Unicorn (2011) 7
Amazing animation and the story zipped along, though was a little silly. Some people said that they couldn't follow the story – I had no problem!
Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002) 6
Strange movie about US gameshow king Chuck Barris. It didn't help that I had never heard of him.
The Four Seasons (1981) 5
Old movie about a group of friends. Nothing to see here.
Sordid Lives (2000) 2
Meant to be a classic gay film... it was truly awful. It felt like a student-made movie with some awful acting and crap story. Avoid.
My Week with Marilyn (2011) 6
Not as good as I had hoped. Not much happens, but the acting is fine.
The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 (2011) 5
Some terrible acting but at least there were plenty of shirtless twinks. At least there is a story this time round as there last film seemed to lack any narrative!
Welcome to the Rileys (2010) 6
Tony Soprano makes some strange decisions to help a prostitute – seemed too far fetched to me.
The Ides of March (2011) 5
Political drama by George Clooney which seemed a bit up it's own ****. The UK equivalent would be a film about a bi-election in Sheffield South. Very very dull.
Midnight in Paris (2011) 5
Woody Allen disappoints me time after time. Yet again his characters are just walking cliches (yes, another author has personal problems, but this time in Paris). Silly time travelling story with really lazy script writing and perhaps one laugh. Like the past few films, it's begging to be a 30 minute comedy play with some co-writing help.
