Moonrise Kingdom 4.5/5 (C)

Lived up to my high expectations from the trailer, one of the best films of the year.

Tabloid 4/5 (R)

Wow, this is all kinds of batshit crazy!

Hairspray (2007) 2.5/5 (R)

Didn't really do much for me, not entirely sure why.

The Fantastic Mr Fox 3.5/5 (R)

Did I mention how much I'm looking forward to Moonrise Kingdom?

13 Assassins 4/5 (D)

It takes an hour to get going but then it doesn't let up for a moment.

Knowing 2/5 (R)

Bad but interestingly so. And isn't the poster a spoiler?

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian 2.5/5 (R)

Mulholland Drive 4/5 (C)

Not as weird as I remembered (which is worrying me slightly).

Bedtime Stories 2.5/5 (R)

Strange but fun.

The Dictator 4/5 (C)

Return to form after Bruno and possibly better than Borat. The jokes just keep coming so when it occasionally falters there will be something funnier along in a moment.

Damsels In Distress 4.5/5 (C)

Apparently you will love or hate this film, I definitely loved it. Feels rushed towards the end would have loved it to go on for even longer.

Marley 4/5 (C)

Another great music documentary, loses focus towards the end (or was I just tired) but picks up for the emotional finale.

Avatar 3.5/5 (R)

It's no worse (or better) in 2D. The motion capture was always more impressive than any of the 3D and seemed more impressive not seeing it so soon after Pocahontas.

Final Destination 3 3/5 (R)

05 May 2012

Thor 3/5 (D)

Disappointing especially considering it was directed by Kenneth Branagh.

Captain America: The First Avenger 4/5 (D)

Perfectly fine piece of superhero blockbuster film making. Not sure why it didn't bust any blocks when it first came out.
