Babel 3/5 (C)

Starts off okay but after the first hour just drags. Doesn't seem to say much either and is somewhat predictable (although that may be due to what was shown in the trailer).

There are some good bits; the Mexican wedding, most of the Japanese story but even the latter doesn't fit too well with the rest of the film.

Assault On Precinct 13 3/5 (R)

(1976 John Carpenter Version)

A zombie film without any zombies.

The Actors 3/5 (R)

Enjoyable enough.

The Man Who Sued God 3/5 (R)

Enjoyable but the necessary fluffy ending was always going to be a disappointment. And shame about all the swearing!

The Long Goodbye 3/5 (R)

Great update of the Marlowe character but the slow pace drags the film out so that the many stand out scenes end up being too diluted.

Dead Poet's Society 3.5/5 (D)

It's an average film throughout but that ending is always going to get me, even this time when I told myself it wouldn't.

Down With Love 3/5 (R)

Spk Kids 3D: Game Over 1/5 (R)

The only good thing in this film is Sylvester Stallone's acting (which is a phrase I never thought I'd ever use) and some 3D effects (which are redundant without the glasses).

An awful film that ruins the Spy Kids franchise and further misrepresents gaming in the world of cinema.

Mrs Henderson Presents 3/5 (R)
