It'd be a crime not to. Probably the sweariest movie ever?

The original Taking of Pelham 123.

Great film. It was a real treat to see the subway stop I get off at every morning circa 1973. Shaw and Matthau were grand.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen

Was good, looked pretty. I went in expecting it to belike the first so the humans did not irritate me so much, infact i found it quite amusing at parts. It was maybe a tad overlong, just 15 minutes trimmed off would have made me a bit more comfortable and if they had maybe decided against one awful, cheese moment near the end.

Worth a watch though, instantly better than the first and it nearly made me shed a wee tear.

I love this film. It use to be my 'flu movie'. When I had it, I'd watch it. Haven't seen it in a long time but I will again. All performances are great - Shaw, Matthau, Balsam, Elizondo and everyone. I miss actors like that. They only seem to pop up in Deadwood.

I love the sneeze at the end. Best face ever.

Charlie Wilson's War

Simple and entertaining account of the US's involvement in the Afghan/Soviet war told in a Ron Howard-esque way for people who possibly wouldn't have much knowledge of it. It's decent enough, the actors are all as solid as you would expect them to be but the inclusion of Ned Beatty reminds you that it could have been just as simple, more entertaining and a hell of a lot more poetic than it is and then it could have been an important work on a par with Network.

Even though she did very little I really liked Julia Roberts in this. This should be the most important point in her career so far, it's just a pity that women over 40 never do anything interesting, certainly nothing anybody would want to see a film about, so any great roles will probably be few and far between. On the bright side, that does mean more parts for dildos like Megan Fox and co.


Mamma Mia!

The actors are great, the choreography is decent and it has a nice energy but the script is shoddy, it looks cheap and the songs are really unimpressive interpretations of the so-so originals. OK, I suppose.

Martyrs (2008)

Pretty grim, but at least it has a point of sorts.

Role Models

Much much better than I'd been led to believe. A return to form for Seann William Scott and a very funny turn from Paul Rudd. Some good laugh out loud moments even though I watched it alone.

Has Seann William Scott ever made a bad film?

A visit to the IMDB listing would suggest yes. But also, on some level, no.

What kind of percentage of the runtime were robots actually on screen for?

In the first one, they barely seemed to be in it at all. And even when they were, they were being all slapstick and treading on lawns/"pissing" on people.

This is true.

Robots per screentime was good, and the robot slapstick was actually funny this time round.

I think the appearance of the Decepticons was better in the first film though, destruction of the army base and all.

The robot screen time is much greater, helped by the sheer volume of them in it.

I'll write a better review tomorrow, but on the whole, I loved it.

Oddly, my Transformers-obsessed friend (he rivals you, Glenn), hated it.

He adored the first one, I think he saw it 9 times at the cinema. He's been a fan of Transformers since before the G1 cartoon started, and has dozens of the toys. But he was checking his watch and wanting this new one to end.
