A History of Violence (2005) 8*
The name suggests some blood and gore, but this film is more than that. A gripping drama about a man thrust into the limelight after a robbery at his cafe.
Kick-Ass (2010) 7*
Another very violent film, but this is all comic violence. Silly, but good fun all the same.
Breathing (2011) 6
Unusual German film (a random pick) about an 18 year old youth in a detention centre and his stalled attempts at getting back into society.
The Hunger Games (2012) 7
Entertaining and interesting on many levels... you can read my thoughts here.
High Fidelity (2000) 7*
The Nick Hornby book that became a film - all about relationships and music.
The Grey (2011) 5
Long film that goes nowhere. Quite dull really.
The Players (2012) 6
French comedy starring the two same actors in lots of scenarios. Some bits very good, some parts really awful.
21 Jump Street (2012) 7
I laughed far more than I thought I would. My review is here.
Children of Men (2006) 7*
A really interesting take on the future where all women become infertile. A great idea that could have been taken much further.
Cinema Paradiso (1988) 8
The classic Italian film - not sure how I missed it until now. A feel good film.
