  1.  A surpise hit.

    Posted: 

    .From the brilliantly executed effects of the crash (yes,its all plausible,everything that happens is based on actual crashes and situatation,And yes, big alirline planes CAN be flown upside down,its been done) to the superb acting from all concerned,and great script.Highly recommended.

  2.  slight disappointed in the blu ray transfer.

    Posted: 

    North by Northwest - made in 1959, The Magnificent Seven - 1960,Doctor no - 1962, in fact,any of the Connery Bond films, all look superb on blu ray.So i waited with baited breath,really looking forward to the Great Escape blu ray treatment (as its one of my favouritre films,from child to adult). To be honest, i was slightly disappointed.Yes,compared to the normal DVD, its way better.fills the whole screen as well.But its not perfect.Slightly 'fluffy',nowhere near the perfect clarity and sharpness of,say,Connery Bond films, so it cant be argued that a film of a certain age cant be transferred perfectly.Still, happy enough with this, just initial slight disappointment.

  3.  A Willis Turkey.

    Every now and then,Bruce Willis makes a turkey.This film is one of them.I gave it a good 45 minutes before i gave up and turned it off.I dont know what it was trying to be, but i found it boring,and i didnt care for any of the characters.

  4.  Good film in its own right.

    I've seen the 3 Bourne films - the Matt Damon ones.I bought them,They are brilliant.So i was hesistant when i heard about this.Which i why i rented,just to see if it is any good.I left my preconcieved ideas at the door,and watched it.Straight away, i 'got it'. I think peoples problem with this,is they think its a continuation of the previous 3,That Jeremy Renner is a Matt Damon/Jason Bourne replacement.No,he isn't.This story, is travelling alongside events from the third film,with a different slant - that Renner's character is an 'enhanced soldier',involved in a programme that is a branched off one from Bourne's.Once you accept that, an enjoyable film unfolds.Yes,its a bit slower Than Damon's films, so what? Solid performances from all the actors,good solid story.I for one enjoyed it,and look forward to the next.If you are not sure, just rent it,have a watch, make your own mind.

  5.  Brilliant Blu ray.

    Posted: 

    Bought this,as i loved it as a kid,and love it as an adult.The blu ray transfer is fantastic - the colours are glorious and clear..Sound,unfortunetly,isnt stereo (they managed it on the blu ray of psycho), but never mind.The reason i gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the extras,which are even less than the blu ray of the first Peter Cushing Dalek film.. All there is,are 2 7 minute interveiws,one with Bernard Cribbins,the other with someone i have never heard of.Then there is the 'restoring of' doco,which is both boring and bland.Techs,talking in technobabble, for,its seems,the hell of it,quickly bored me,quite frankly.That aside,a great blu ray.

  6.  Superb Blu ray.

    Bought this,as i loved it as a kid,and love it as an adult.The blu ray transfer is fantastic - the colours are glorious,especially on the planet Skaro.Sound,unfortunetly,isnt stereo (they managed it on the blu ray of psycho), but never mind.The reason i gave 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the extras.'Dalekmania' is an ok doco, but the 'restoring of' doco is both boring and bland.Techs,talking in technobabble, for,its seems,the hell of it,quickly bored me,quite frankly.That aside,a great blu ray.

  7.  A missed opportunity.

    Posted: 

    This was basically a joke stretched into a film..but the joke wasnt there in the first place.Visually, it looked good.Acting was ok, but soon becomes so-so.And it took itself way too seriously.And yes, its to be watched with a pinch of salt,but some scenes were just laughable.Avoid.

  8.  It has Mr Bean in it - say no more.

    Posted: 

    Just what Connery was thinking when he agreed to do this is anyones guess.In short,it's absolute rubbish.A blatant copy of Thunderball - but a poor version of it.Connery creaks around,unconvincingly.Then there is the added irritability of Rowan Atkinson, bumbling around,apparently adding the comedic element,but failing,and making this film very cringing.It wasn't made by the James Bond people, and it shows.Truly awful,no respectful James bond fan (or any other kind of movie fan) would have this turkey in their collection.

  9.  Disappointing.

    Posted: 

    Really enjoyed the latest movie,so i was looking farward to this.How disappointed i was.A typical bad game spin off from a film.It was even a totally different story.The graphics were so-so,the game play very clunky, even a 5 year old would be disappointed.I gave it 15 minutes before turning off..Dont waste your time and money on this rubbish.

  10.  50/50

    Now, i loved the lord of the rings trilogy.Even the extended versions improved on perfection.Then there was this.I was really looking forward to this.And for me, its 2 films in one.The first,is the first half.Pleasant at first,it becomes utterly boring,and drags along at a snails pace.So boring in fact,i found myself looking through my phone.Long,drawn out dialogues,that to be honest,didnt really needed to be there.For a good hour and a bit,i was debating on switching off.Then there was the second film - the second half.Yes,it was nothing new,Hobbits and gandalf and friends fighting orcs,but it was a welcome change of pace.Great effects,great fighting scenes,i just hope the next 2 films (1 book turned into 3 films?) arent as bloated,and that Peter Jackson doesnt over inflate dialogue,and nearly sends the audience to sleep,as the first half of this film did.
