And the man who claims to idolise an arachnid deity isn't?

That's just silly

My sister's new found obsession forced me to re-watch and re-evaluate the lot recently, in preparation for the finale. Must admit I've gone from refering to them as a guilty pleasure to a genuine fan.

Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone (Columbus, 2001 ) 2.9/5
Poorest of the lot by a country mile; goonish child acting, some dodgy CGI and lashings of fromage.

Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (Columbus, 2002) 3.3/5
Better than the first; a great cameo from Branagh, a decent enough plot and a good climax.

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban (Cuaron, 2004) 4/5
Vast improvements once Columbus hoofed his rear end away from behind the camera. Probably my favourite of the lot, some great set pieces and refreshing break from the Voldermont story arch, and Gary Oldman would totally get it.

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire (Newell, 2005) 4/5
If you ignore the fact that it's pretty much a mystical episode of Saved By the Bell and can look past the shaggy hair and stroppy huffiness, it's a cozy, well crafted and fantastic looking addition to the canon.

Harry Potter and the Order of the Pheonix (Yates, 2007) 3.5/5
A two hour plus montage, that to me never really manages to establish itself as much more than filler and could have been trimmed of some fat. First introduction of Luna and Bellatrix though, so bonus points for that.

Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince (Yates, 2009) 4/5
Time for some of the more senior cast members to step up to the plate and show the youngsters how it's really done. Not all of the time though, Radcliff continues to move away from his peers and the highlight of the franchise is Harry off his chops doing this...

The third act is also the finest moment in the series IMO. I really love this more than I should.

Minor spoilers...

The equation for the third act's success is thus:

Time Travel – one annoying ginger kid (sorry PA) = Awesome²

Actually if my incredibly poor maths serves me...

(Perfectly Executed Time Travel – one annoying ginger kid (not as annoying than PA) whose mostly out of the third act) the Patronus Charm = Awesome²

This is how my sister's local pub is decorated at the moment



They're also selling butter beer, which is half a pint of Harp with a shot of Butterscotch schnapps in it.

90.   Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (Wright, 2010) UK/USA/CAN (Second View) 7.0 (+1.0)
This second viewing was more enjoyable than my previous, I didn't lose interest and found the whole film far more likeable and entertaining.

Is this an order of preference or just viewing?

Glad you enjoyed the 2nd one as much, though.

I love Michael Bay films. The Rock is one of the finest action films ever made, and I’ll happily sit down to watch Pearl Harbor and then a Bad Boys double bill any day of the week, and then round the evening out with a smattering of Armageddon. But the first Transformers film was a bit of a damp squib. Despite having no love at all for the Transformers of yesteryear, the idea of robots beating each other up appeals to me, and while I never expected the film to be great in terms of quality, it should at least have been great in terms or fun, and in this it was only partially successful. The sequel was in many ways, worse. It just gets tiresome after a while, repetitive action and lame comedy. And no–one will ever convince me that the transforming effects in the first two are good, they certainly aren’t helped by the fact you çan never actually tell what’s meant to be happening. It didn't help that, to me, they all looked the bloody same.

For the third film, the comedy is reduced and the stakes are much higher. It's the At Worlds End of Transformers. And for some reason I really quite liked it. A lot. More than the first two combined. It's still silly, badly written, overlong, and has some atrocious acting. Much of it makes little sense. I still don't know who half the robots are, the voices of all but three make it impossible to hear what's being said and the final battle is so choppy, it's easy to forget that there are actually two opposing side. And there really is only so much you can take of robots beating the stuffing out of other robots before you want it to stop. But I did like it. The effects are much smoother and the 3d (I had no choice) was superb, by far the best I've seen. Though I still couldn't help but laugh when everyone cried over the death of a robot I couldnt remember the name of.

It should, and did with the first two films, but I enjoyed it in spite of that. Kinda like Plan 9 being a masterpiece even though it's indescribably bad.

And there really is only so much you can take of robots beating the stuffing out of other robots before you want it to stop. But I did like it. The effects are much smoother and the 3d (I had no choice) was superb, by far the best I've seen. Though I still couldn't help but laugh when everyone cried over the death of a robot I couldnt remember the name of.


You're a lunatic.

Gimli, I'm so glad you've said all that because it's going to make my next review seem positively reasonable. 

Braveheart (Mel Gibson)

AKA the film where my taste appalls everyone else in the forum (well, apart from Gimli probably). I understand the bewilderment at Braveheart coming with the Best Picture tag, because it really doesn't deserve it. It's really just a Conan film with some lovely photography, a main character inconsistently written (he's overthrowing a country for the love of his dead wife! No, wait, he's doing it because he fancies the French princess!) and severly questionable history (the notion that William Wallace has laid his seed to be the next in line to the throne is particularly hilarious). However, it has a powerful sweep to it, a rugged and earthy beauty from first frame to the last and the violence is feral, bloody and nasty. The battle scenes crunch and smash splendidly and the supporting cast make up for Gibson's central performance. (4)

Actually no. No it doesn't. At all. Ever.

Well the 'appals everyone' bit was certainly bang on.
