QUICK REVIEW


The following is a list of films which I have recently watched and have yet to review. My system is only to review films which I have seen recently, as to ensure a fresh eye, rather than just randomly selecting films to review. If I did this, I would no doubt select films that I loved, which would be boring, or those I hated, which would be equally as negative. This way, all films get a fair chance, and films are reviewed when I get a chance. I have still rated them as I view them and have given them a one line review pending a longer and hopefully more interesting one in the near future.

  23. GIRL, INTERRUPTED 1999 7/10 “Gentle biographical film”
  24. WALK HARD: THE DEWEY COX STORY, 2007, 6/10 “Decent enough rock n roll pastiche. Not Spinal Tap though”

  26. BRING IT ON, 2000, 5/10 “Simple High School dance film”

  29. EMPLOYEE OF THE MONTH, 5/10 “Standard and wasted romcom, further damaged by poor casting, Jessica Simpson, anyone?”
  30. STAR WARS: THE COMPLETE SAGA (Blu-ray) 8/10 “A beautiful HD remastering. Just a pity that not all the films match it”
  31. CONFESSIONS OF A TEENAGE DRAMA QUEEN, 5/10 “Average Teen Comedy”
  32. THE DILEMMA, 4/10 “Very poor effort from all”
  33. THE GOOD GIRL, 7/10 “A decent indie comedy drama with an  equally good turn from Jennifer Aniston” 
  34. THE WEDDING PLANNER, 6/10 “Slightly above average Rom-Com with a hankering of the golden age.”

  38. SPIDER-MAN 2, 2004, 8/10 “The best of the trilogy”
  39. EDWARD SCISSORHANDS, 1990, 9/10 “Early Tim Burton as his very best”
  40. HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON, 2010, 9/10 “With it’s strong emotional anchor and real  story over gags, this is surely and animated classic up there with Toy Story and UP”
  41. HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 3: SENIOR YEAR (Extended Edition), 2008, 5/10 “Disappointing. The second film is certainly the best, encapsulating the fun which this one lacked.”
  42. POSEIDON, 2006, 7/10 “Well paced adventure which whilst being more exiting that Allen’s 70’s classic, was nothing like as ground breaking” 
  43. BIG, 1988, 7/10 “An 80’s Classic, and a great reminder as to the fact that Tom hanks was a comedic star long before he became the Hanks of today.”
  44. PERCY JACKSON AND THE LIGHTNING THIEF, 6/10 “More exiting than HP, but that’s about it.”
  45. SWEET HOME ALABAMA, 5/10 “Simple, predictable but not a bad chic flick”
  46. DAYLIGHT, 1996, 6/10 “The film which heralded the revival in disaster movies. Still watchable, but has been surpassed with ease…”
  47. GALAXY QUEST, 2000, 8/10 “A brilliant pastiche on Star Trek fandom. Great fun”
  48. HANNAH MONTANA: THE MOVIE, 2008, 6/10 “Not bad film version of the hit TV show. Might take itself a little to seriously though…”

  50. AMERICAN PIE 2, 2002, 7/10 “Not a bad sequel but on the precipice of a vertical drop in quality…”

  59. BRAVEHEART, 1995, 9/10 “Though somewhat inaccurate, well told, performed and directed. I triumph of propaganda cinema”
  60. HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE, 8/10 “Not my favourite, but still one of the better installments.”
  61. HARRY POTTER AND THE ORDER OF THE PHOENIX, 8/10 “The beginning of the David Yates era and when the franchise picks up both pace and a more unified theme.”
