This energetic refreshing film will surely go down as an absolute classic, remembered for the excellent script, fight sequences, humour, romance and the whole retro-gaming look and feel.

Loud, angry and oddly paced, The Expendables is billed as a 9-man movie, but turns out to be an okay 2-man bromance between Stallone and Statham with added guns.
Better than I had been led to believe with some excellent performances and engaging action sequences, Robin Hood goes a long way to erasing the memory of previous efforts while providing a visually pleasing experience.
Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince
An overly long missed opportunity that could have done a much better job at telling us a story and instead opted to skirt around all the stuff that made the book dark and thrilling.
While amusing in places this animated comedy doesn’t have much in the way of value for adults (unlike other movies of this ilk) and we didn’t rush out to get the next two.
Madagascar 2 – Escape to Africa
Laugh out loud funny in places, but never quite manages to reach the enjoyment value of the first one.
Enjoyable but silly in places, The International never quite gets away from the fact that it’s about the banking industry and yet still manages to entertain sufficiently to make watching it worthwhile.
Excellent chemistry between Owen and Roberts, combined with an interesting story, careful use of flashbacks, and some excellent supporting performances (Paul Giamatti is awesome) made this an enjoyable film (if maybe a little long) despite the critical backlash.
Cage delivers a good performance in this initially entertaining sci-fi suspense and the supporting cast is equally good, however the bizarre twist near the end leaves you wondering why you watched it in the first place.
Despite having a well trodden plot 16 Blocks delivers an exciting and entertaining 118 minutes filled with wise cracks, solid dialogue and decent performances.
