Watched Arnie in "Last Stand" at the weekend. What can I say? Things get blown up, there's lots of one liners and shooting! It's Arnie alright! For non Arnie Lovers 4/10, for Arnie Lovers 7/10.

Agree completely with Trevor's review/thoughts on "Rush." Great flic. Sprung for the "D Box" (motion seats) option for wifey and moi. Only way to go, if available. Gimmick or not, really adds to the experience.

Watched "The Heat" on the plane to England last week. A simple plot of a mismatched pair of police officers having to work together so nothing new there but I enjoyed the performances.
Watched "District 9" on the way back yesterday. I'd heard it was a good film so had high expectations and I certainly wasn't disappointed. I thought it was brilliant. Highly recommended.

If you've even a remote interest in mountaineering (vicarious in my case), "The Summit" will blow you away. Extremely well done dramatic feature length documentary about the ill fated August 1 2008 K2 climbing disaster. 18 climbers reached the summit that day. 7 made it down alive.

Watched The Lone Ranger the other night with Johnny Depp in it. Not a brilliant movie, but had some fun parts. Depp channelling Jack Sparrow into Tonto the Comanche.

Great if you liked Thor 1 and The Avengers.
Thor 1 is slightly better though overall, Thor 2 has a few issues but some really great moments and genuinely laugh out loud funny at times. My issue is the 'big bad' it's the usual problem for Superhero movies but Iron Man 3 for example handled it with a really smart twist which was refreshing for the genre. Thor 2's problem is that the 'threat' is bigger than the one in Avengers. In that film the world was under threat, in Thor 2 it's the whole universe yet somehow Thor manages to deal with it on his own. Makes you wonder what kind of threat they'll need for Avengers 2! Anyway don't let logic get in the way of good entertainment, there's certainly plenty of that on offer.
Best 3D movie (OK maybe after Avatar) or should I say best use of 3D in a movie is last year's Dredd. Good in 2D. Great in 3D. Check it out. Tron legacy deserves a mention - the real world is 2D, the computer world is 3D which is a cool idea even if the plot is pants. Gravity is said to be another that uses 3D really well. Quite a rare thing, with most 3D films you forget it's 3D after a while because they don't do anything with it.

Gravity in 3D is a sight to behold - hands down the best 3D film I've ever seen. As a feature film however it's poorly paced and makes quite a few missteps. I'd say its more accurately described as a "short film" despite the running time of 90 mins.
Having said that, it's definitely something that can't quite be experienced at home (no not even with a 3D Tv...), so I recommend everyone to catch it in theatres while it's out there.
Jonny - I have an unopened Dredd 3D on my shelf. Only seen the 2D version and loved it. Gritty! Awesome film. Can imagine the slow-mo scenes are awesome in 3D.

After Earth. Started reeeeeaaalllly slowly and Jaden Smith is annoying, hamming up being scared a little too much. But an enjoyable film, well made and a reasonable plot. Worth a look on DVD. 6/10.
World War Z, despite scaring the bejesus out of me in one scene it's been edited too much in trying to form a story from the book, which is essentially a series of diary entries from lots of different people. It's disjointed in places and the story suffers for it. However. That said if you like Zombies you'll like the fresh outlook on them that comes from the book. Overall 7/10 if you like Zombies 4/10 if you aren't.

Hmm, I would suggest a few old movies like for example:
- 7 samurais.
- Cat people.
- Meetings with remarkable men.
Speaking of new movies, and of course as this is Lotus forum - driving: Rush. I've not seen it yet, so how is it from a movie point? And how from a driving point?

This is the end, on DVD. James Franco, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen etc etc all playing versions of themselves (as we see them or as we seem to think they are like) during the Armageddon. It is gruesome in places, hilarious in others and quite unexpected. Very enjoyable. 8/10
p.s watch out for the huge number of cameo's including Emma Watson, most of whom die in gruesome ways!
