4.0 out of 5 stars Our Idiot Brother (2011), 24 Jan 2014
This review is from: Our Idiot Brother [DVD] (DVD)
There seems to be some issues with the release of this movie over here in the UK, but now that it was finally released to dvd over here I had to make sure to check it out & im so glad I did!

It begins with Ned (Paul Rudd) selling drugs to a police officer, resulting in him going to jail for 8 months but upon his release his girlfriend has now moved on and kicked him out of their house so he must return back to his family, his mum and 3 sisters! I really liked getting to know the different lives of the 3 sisters, Zooey Deschanel played a laid back lesbian who has loads of roommates, she was sweet and funny and probably my favourite sister. Elizabeth Banks was a workaholic journalist trying to work out the relationship with her neighbor, just friends or more? and Emily Mortimer was a wife of a movie director and mother of a young boy who Ned makes a great connection with making for some really sweet funny scenes throughout the movie.

The strongest thing about this movie was the great character developments you really felt like you got to know all the characters really well and there wasn't many that you didn't instantly like. Focusing mainly on Ned and his troubles and trying to build the relationships with his sisters but then also showing all the side plots of each sister and what they are going through was really great and kept the story interesting but it also did a great job at joining them together.

I highly enjoyed this and would recommend it to anybody, don't let this one slip by you unnoticed.


Gambit [DVD]

Dvd ~ Colin Firth

3.0 out of 5 stars Gambit (2013), 24 Jan 2014
This review is from: Gambit [DVD] (DVD)
Being a fan of both Cameron Diaz and Alan Rickman I decided to give this movie a chance, Colin Firth is always very hit and miss with me but in Gambit I found him to be okay.

Alan Rickman is an art collector who employes Colin Firth to check out different paintings checking that they are not fake, however Colin Firth feeling he is not making enough money from this is working on the side with a man who recreates famous expensive paintings then trying to sell them on to Alan Rickman for his collection. In order to pull this off for a famous haystacks dust painting he must hire Cameron Diaz to act as though the paining is hers in order to sell him this fake.

The movie takes a few twists and turns but is rather slow however it did surprise me in that I enjoyed it more than i thought i would and got more laughs from it than i thought i would have. Cameron Diaz plays a Texas cowgirl which adds some comedical value to the movie when shes put in these situations with these high class business people & fancy hotels.

If you want something your not going to have to think about a lot that you can just sit back and relax then this will do for you. A Rainy Sunday afternoon movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars Date Night (2010), 24 Jan 2014
This review is from: Date Night [DVD] (DVD)
I've been putting off watching this movie for a while and when I finally got around to it I wish I would have watched it sooner!
Not the biggest Tina Fay/Steve Carrol fan but I enjoyed them both in this movie & it made me laugh more than a few times.

Our two main characters are a married couple with two kids afraid they are getting stuck into the same routine that may one day lead to a divorce as they have seen happen to their friends, In hope to change things up a bit they go into the city to the new top fancy restaurant but are unable to get a seat as all reservations have been made and its fully booked, In a spontaneous moment they decide to take somebody else's reservation who hasn't turned up. This then results in an hilarious action packed night been mistaken for a couple who have a USB that everybody is after and can get them into a lot of trouble.

I really loved the character Tina Fay played in this, that's where i got most of my laughs from but I know for sure I will be watching this one again and I would recommend it to a friend, I think both male and female, young and old will all be able to get a kick out of this!

4.0 out of 5 stars Percy Jackson and the lightning theif, 10 Sep 2010
I wasn't really expecting that much from this film but i really enjoyed it and i thought it was great. If you like films like harry potter or narnia those kind of fantasy films then you will probably enjoy this or if you are interested in greek mythology then i would recommend watching this. I gave it 4 out of 5 because i don't think its one of the best films but its still great and i look forward to seeing any of the future follow up movies. I haven't read any of the books so i can't compare the movie to the book but yeah so even if you haven't read or heard of any of these books still give the movie a go :)

I was really looking forward to this film and then when i finally got i and watched it i didn't find it that great at all and it couldn't really seem to hold my attention it was rather boring i don't think it really had much point to it, i guess if you really like these type of films and you can get this really cheap then maybe give it a go but i didn't think it was very good at all really.

Offered by DVDBayFBA
Price: 2.73

4.0 out of 5 stars Twilight - New moon, 10 Sep 2010
This movie was good i enjoyed it, i probably enjoyed it about the same amount as the first one i can't really pick a favourite, however i do think there are better movies than these but i did enjoy this movie i think this one has a bit more depth than the first one and i wouldn't recommend watching this one if you haven;t seen the first twilight movie so make sure to watch that one before seeing this one or of course reading the books. i really love the music in the film and i think the actors do a really great job.
At first i didn;t want to watch the twlight movies because of all the big hype about them i didn't want to get sucked into it and don't usually like vampire movies or things like that however i did go ahead and watch them and did find myself enjoying them so if you arn't sure or think you don't like these type of movies i would still recommend watching them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shutter island., 10 Sep 2010
This review is from: Shutter Island [DVD] (2010) (DVD)
i love this film its amazing one of my now all time favourite films, i have always loved leonardo decaprio in movies and thats why i chose to watch this film and i'm really glad i did because now i have watched it about 6 times. The story and plot to this film is just amazing and if you don't like watching horror or scary movie's i would still recomend this movie as it isn't very scary and the storyline and acting is so great everybody should see it.
Definitely my favourite film of 2009 can't recommend it enough just make sure you watch it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Up, 10 Sep 2010
This film certainly catches all of your emotions it can make you cry and laugh within the space of 10 minuets, all the characters are really loveable and its a great film for all the family i watched this film with my family and all 5 of us enjoyed it and were laughing throughout. One thing which i really thought was amazing about this film is there is about 5 minuets where it shows the life story of the old man from when he was young to when he is a old man and all the way through that no words are used yet you know exactly what is going on and its just such a great moment in the film.
The film also looks wonderful on blu-ray with great picture quality and sound, defiantly one of the top pixar movies.

(500) Days of Summer [DVD] [2009]
Dvd ~ Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Price: 9.47

5.0 out of 5 stars 500 days of summer., 10 Sep 2010
This film is amazing, its very different and unique from other films that are similar the boy meets girl love story type films, it's done in a really interesting way with the days not going in order but going back and forwards all the time and it works really well, the film is also told from the male perspective which is something a bit different as well. One of my favourite things about this film is the music i love the music in the film it makes it even more great another thing which i love about this film without giving anything away is the way that it ends different than how the usual films about love end.
Overall 5 out of 5 film i loved it and would recommend it, one of my favourites of 2009.
