  1.  My favourite film of all time.


    This film suffered from the presence of Slumdog Millionaire, otherwise, this would have absolutely swept the board at the Oscars. Just a stunning, incredible and magical film. The way Brad Pitt plays a 5 year old as an elderly man and vice-versa, needs to be seen to be believed. By far and away his best performance.

    Yes, its long. It's very long. But don't let that put you off because it really does fly by. You might have been watching it for 2 hours and 45 mins (at least you get your money's worth!!) but you'll still wish it hasn't ended when the credits role. Taraji P Henson is also brilliant as Button's adopted mother.

    Also, the perfect film for Blu Ray, the detail on Cate Blanchett and Brad Pitt's faces as they age is superb.

  2.  The 'club bangers' aren't really back...


    For starters, the best song on the album is Boom Boom Pow - not surprising really because that definitely would take some beating. There's a couple of good other songs, like Rock That Body, but there's a few too many tracks that you get the impression are just there to make up the numbers.

    It is still a good album though, if you're a Black Eyed Peas fan, you'll like it. One star given for Boom Boom Pow, one for Rock That Body and one for the couple of other good tracks. This isn't quite the big comeback we thought we'd get, but it's still one to add to your collection. Just don't expect everything to be up to the standard of the first two tracks.

  3.  A lotta bang for your buck


    JJ Abrams is an absolute genius. This is a visually stunning movie, packed with incredible SFX, a franchise-rebooting story line and an excellent cast that pays homage to the legends who took the roles previously. Zac Quinto and Chris Pine play their parts of Spock and Kirk respectively, superbly. There's a lot to come from the new Star Trek generation for sure and Blu Ray will capture this movie perfectly. Great stuff!

  4.  Just 'brilliant'.


    Well, let's get one thing said quickly: the acting's not fantastic from some of the supporting actors, but it's spot on from the people who count. It encapsulates teenage frustrations brilliantly, with so much more wit than half the stuff on TV.

    It's become one of my favourite shows on telly. For that price ^^ it's a fantastic buy. Just great, very funny TV.

    If you're a fan of Peep Show, you'll love it.

  5.  Absolutely outstanding


    One of the most enchanting and remarkable films of the year. The closest thing you will see to perfection in 2009 cinema. Patel's performance is brilliant - good to see a British actor in the main role that critics are applauding. The theme of 'fate' is normally cheesy, over-used and meaningless - Slumdog Millionaire explores the real meaning behind fate with impecable style. Just a brilliant, brilliant film.

  6.  Fantastic, incredibly unique.


    Unlike any film I have ever seen. It's quirky, it's bizarre, it's down-right weird... but it's completely and utterly brilliant. John Malkovich's performance is extremely under-rated (it's possibly his career best). The plot, according to Cusack's character: "You see the world through John Malkovich's eyes. Then after about 15 minutes, you're spit out into a ditch on the side of the New Jersey Turnpike!" It won't be everyone's cup of tea, but if you're into your off-the-wall, one-of-a-kind-ers, this is definitely something you'll enjoy.

  7.  A film of two halves...


    The first-half of Hancock lives up to the high expectations that come with any Will Smith film - it's witty and action-packed and is a really good watch. But the seriousness of the plot in the second-half hits you like a hard slap in the face, the comedy goes out the window and you're left with desperate scenes at hospital bed-sides. Like other reviewers have said, the 'twist' lets it down and marks the film's downturn. However, Will Smith fans will like it and it's still a good watch - it's just nothing special.

  8.  Good, but lacking sparkle


    A good movie to add to your collection, but don't expect any extreme thrills and a very compelling story. The inevitable (and predictable) big twist at the end of the film means it ends on a dull note. It's show-y and glamourous, but lacking in any bite. Good performances from some young actors and actresses though and I'd still recommend it to anyone who likes their Ocean's Eleven-style con movies.

  9.  One of the best shows on TV


    Not for the squeemish, Dexter is undoubtedly one of the most thrilling, compelling American imports on TV. It's dark - very dark - but Season 2 definitely lives up to the extremely high standard set for it by the first season. Michael C Hall's one of the most under-rated actors. Just brilliant TV.

  10.  Back with a bang!


    From the early plays of 'Ulysses' and the couple of tracks that are available on YouTube, the new material sounds brilliant. It's different from the old stuff, more synths but the same ridiculously catchy hooks as we're on the first two albums. As a big Franz fan, I'm impressed with the new work and really looking forwards to the release of Tonight. Thank God Franz are back!!
