  1.  They're filming midgets!

    Posted: 

    Firstly In Bruges is a gangster film. It's also acted brilliantly, funny throughout, intelligent and just one brilliant film in every way. It's slow yes, but you don't really mind because the chemistry between each member of the cast and the way the film progresses, it's worth your time without a doubt. I can't recommend this film enough to people.

  2.  Disney Classic No. 15.

    Posted: 

    Growing up this was one of my favourite films despite being made 37 years before I was born. It follows a Cocker Spaniel named Lady, with her well off and very loving family of Darling and Jim Dear, but when it's announced the there is a baby on the way, things start going wrong for Lady. This is, in my opinion, Disney's best Classic and one of Disney's best films to date still. Including one of the most memorable scene's in cinema history with the dinner, this is the one finest Disney moments ever, coupled with one of the best restorations onto blu-ray I've seen it's really hard to believe this film is as old as it is. Amazing sound quality and the picture and colours on this blu-ray are beautiful. Lady and the Tramp on blu-ray is just a must buy for anyone with a blu-ray player really, no matter how old you are.

  3.  Mad Men in the 1920's with violence!

    Posted: 

    HBO's Gritty masterpiece that is Boardwalk Empire centers on 1920's Atlantic City during Prohibition when alcohol was outlawed and Atlantic City's very own corrupt treasurer Nucky Thompson, seeing the whole situation as one big business opportunity, begins working to tighten his firm grip on the city, but it also brings his attention to a bunch of violent rivals and FBI agents who will stop at knowing to in force the law and keep alcohol off the streets and out of peoples mouths.

    Everything about this show is amazing, the writing in each episode, the acting from everyone, the highlight being Stephen Graham as Al Capone. The thing that made me really excited about this show was the fact that the one and only Michael Scorsese directed the very first episode of this masterpiece of a show.

  4.  Fantastic

    Mad Men is a show that most people won't be instantly attracted too, but after half the first season you'll be drawn to it due to the subtle, well scripted and performed show that will unravel itself in front of your very eyes. It can be a pretty dull show at first, but once you give it a while, you really get invested in the life of Don Draper (John Hamm) and the many executives that are closing in on him. After winning the Emmy Award for Outstanding Drama Series four years running, I couldn't not buy the first season and see what was going on, and I don't regret it for a second, will definitely be buying the second, third and fourth seasons ready for season five later this year.

  5.  Best Film of 2011

    Posted: 

    One of the biggest surprises of 2011, and one I regret not seeing in the cinema so much. Drive is a near perfect movie, with a brilliant story that's got style, well paced, drama and the biggest surprise, A LOT of graphic violence which actually fits well within the film and the story, and it never feels that the violence is there just for the sake of it. Acted perfectly by the whole cast helps to create this very real, gritty world of a stunt-man/part-time getaway driver and brings it to life. As a whole this has to be one of the best (if not THE best) film of 2011, very stylish and a very original take on the Gangster/Thriller film while also including a scent of a love story, which fits perfectly into it as well. If there is any film you must see, then this is it! You'll be mad to miss this!

  6.  Better than I thought

    Posted: 

    While this film is a fantastic visual experience with top notch effects, and action that doesn't really seem to stop, even their not in the fantasy world, it just isn't very original in story and the characters were not developed enough to actually care about them and what their going through. Despite all this, it gets 4 stars because Snyder's direction is very good, plus the fantastic visual effects and amazing set pieces makes this film worth a watch, but I doubt it's a film most people will be seeing again anytime soon anyway.

  7.  The Pussay Patrol goes out on a high!

    Posted: 

    Just like I said in my reviews for the shows first, second and third series, and like how every other reviewer has said, The Inbetweeners Movie carries over EVERYTHING good about the show and puts it into a full hour and a half film.Just like the show, it is definitely one of the funniest films of recent times. A full juicy hour and a half entertaining film with a story line that is so similar to the series but still very entertaining, with their characters going on a lads holiday and continuing to be relatable, that are again played brilliantly by the four main guys! Just like the series was, this film a personal highlight of 2011 for me, and I'm pretty sure it was for an awful lot of people too. A must buy for every British lad.

  8.  The funniest show ever ends!

    Posted: 

    Just like I said with Series 1 and Series 2 and basically like how every other reviewer has said, The Inbetweeners Series 3 continues to be one of the funniest shows of recent times, and ends on a HIGH note. Again, full of 6 good, entertaining story lines with their characters continuing to be relatable, that are again played brilliantly by the four main guys! Just like Series 1 and 2 was, this show was the highlight of my Thursday nights, and I'm pretty sure it was for an awful lot of people too.

    If you missed it on E4 or just want to relive the laugh-out-moments like I do then this won't be a waste of your pounds, that's for sure!

  10.  Fantastic

    Harry Brown is one fine piece of filmmaking. The title role, of Harry Brown, is done amazingly well by the one and only, Michael Caine, who is unfortunately residing in a run down council estate full of teenagers and gang members who happen to mess with the wrong man!

    The story follows Harry Brown's quest for revenge after some of the youths from the estate kill his best friend and find the people who are responsible, while dealing with the loss of his wife as well. Although the story does seem a little far fetched, once watching you will see that the film is made in a realistic way and highlights a lot of problems that are plaguing London and other areas of the UK right now.

    This is one of the best British films of recent times, and one of the most realistic too, making it a must watch. If your not planning on watching it for the story or the subject, just watch it for Michael Caine's performance, as it has to be one of the best of his amazing career.
