  1.  Save your money

    Posted: 

    Due to all the hype surrounding this film, I was really excited about seeing it. Unfortunately, it fell flat. Sure, it ticks the boxes to win a few Oscars, but don't let that fool you.

    Firstly, the story is average. Due to the short length of the film, there isn't really much chance to get to like or know the characters, or even set up any form of plot. So it's hard to feel any emotion for them during the events of the film.
    Secondly, the 3D. Very very poor. There's a few rare moments where you're reminded that you're actually watching a 3D film. But other than that, there isn't much happening. You get constant shots of earth, which are incredibly clear, but after a few times, you realise it's the exact same shot used over and over again.

    One positive about this film is the sound. It's incredible. But is that enough to spend that much money, definitely not.
    If you insist on wanting to see this, rent it on Blu Ray. You'll save money and disappointment.

  2.  Crashed and Burned

    Posted: 

    We all know how good the film is, so I'll keep the review purely about the 3D. Even though my expectations weren't overly high, as it's an old film, I was still excited about seeing this in 3D.
    Unfortunately, it was a bit of a let down from the start. I haven't seen the Blu Ray version so not sure what the quality of that is like, but this is just purely terrible. As another reviewer says, it looks like a VHS version. There are two or three plane scenes where they fly across the sun where the 3D is at it's best and the picture is crisp and vibrant. But other than that, there aren't many other good things about this version. It didn't take my breath away..

    I wouldn't recommend this version to anyone.

  3.  Not a bad film. But bad Quality.

    Posted: 

    I'll start off by saying that this was the first time I've seen this film, so I'm not sure what the picture quality was like on DVD. But on this Blu-Ray version it was about 2/10 and that's being generous. But in a way, it kind of added to the effect of the film. Not sure if that was the intention though..

    Now, onto the film.. It has the usual start to a horror film which I personally didn't think it needed. I was slightly worried to start with that the subtitles would be distracting but I was on the edge of my seat a lot throughout. Despite the actual lack of violence and blood there is still an incredible amount of suspense! For 5 quid, you can't really go wrong. Recommended if you enjoyed Eden Lake.

  4.  Do You Here The People Sing?!

    Posted: 

    This isn't usually my type of film, so I wasn't expecting to be blown away. But I was. I found myself smiling, laughing and dare I say it, even slightly teary during this remarkable film. It honestly couldn't be any better. The story, the music, the casting, the costumes... all perfect.

    Hugh Jackman and Samantha Barks were the standouts for me, closely followed by Helena Bonham Carter and Sacha Baron Cohen! But overall the whole cast were incredible (yes, even Russel Crowe, who's not vocally great, but it's hard to imagine anyone else playing that role).

    The Blu-Ray picture and sound are fantastic, so make the purchase, sit back, turn your speakers up to full volume and enjoy this incredible masterpiece. You wont be disappointed.

  5.  Possibly the worst Wrestlemania ever!

    Posted: 

    Unfortunately, I spent 17 pounds watching this on box office. I've never felt so let down by a PPV. It was just a 4 hour bore fest with only 1 decent match being Punk vs Undertaker. The rest of the PPV just seemed to lack any preparation which was summed up in possibly the worst main event I've ever seen with Cena vs Rock.
    Don't waste your money, like I did!

     Worth A Watch

    Posted: 

    After hearing so much hype about this film, I eventually decided to see what all the fuss was about. Unfortunately it was a bit of a let down.

    As another reviewer stated, Affleck's attention to detail with the film was excellent and he should definitely stick to directing more. But his acting is still as wooden as an ark which, for me, let the film down. No wonder he wasn't nominated for an Oscar!

    It took some time to get into, but as the film went on, I became more intrigued with the plot. But despite the incredibly tense ending, I was still let disappointed.

    It's far from the masterpiece that it's made out to be and I definitely wouldn't watch it again.

    My advice: It's worth a watch but rent it first!

  8.  The Dark Knight Falls

    Posted: 

    If you're an avid Batman maniac you'll be buying this film no matter what.
    But if you're not, ignore all the reviews claiming this is the best film ever made! From a neutral perspective, it's far from that.

    I very much enjoyed the Dark Knight so was looking forward to see what this film would be like in comparison. Unfortunately it's a let down.
    I thought the Tom Hardy performance was massively overhyped, Ann Hathaway as Catwoman has nothing on Michelle Pfeiffer and I'm still not convinced by Christian Bale as Batman. He's a good Bruce Wayne but when he puts that mask on, he's too 'Solid Snake' for my liking.

    Also, I'm not a big fan of these spaceship type vehicles that seemed to have made their way into this trilogy. I was under the impression that they were tying to bring a bit of realism into the superhero franchise. Seeing Batman jump into a spaceship and fly around the city, takes that effect away, slightly...

    For me, the overall film was messy and it even started to bore me at times. There were some good scenes that no doubt look great on Blu Ray, but if you're not a massive Batman fan and just looking for a new film to watch, I'd recommend renting this first.

  9.  Finally!

    Posted: 

    I've been waiting for this film to come out on Blu-Ray for ages! When you compare this to the DVD version you can instantly see, just how incredible this transfer is. A crisp and colourful picture make the action scenes look amazing! That, with fantastic audio to match, compliments the phenomenal soundtrack!

    If you like this this film, buy it in Blu Ray! Truly outstanding!

  10.  This Is How It Was Meant To Be!

    Posted: 

    This is the way Ian Fleming intended James Bond to be. For me this portrays his books more so than any other James Bond film.

    As another reviewer has stated, this films dares to do something different and it works incredibly well. Daniel Craig plays Bond to perfection. You see that he is actually human, and not just an invincible action hero. Which gives the audience a more emotional feel towards the character and more connection to the film.

    With a few twists, the brilliant introduction to some old characters but with new faces, lots of humour, action packed scenes and the outstanding performances from Judi Dench as M and Javier Bardem as Silva, this film is a MUST SEE!
