    The Beasts of Southern Wild
    Let me first say, I still don't have a complete understanding of the film because this is one of those movies that leave wondering what you just watched in a good way, and something you have to soak in and think about, and also re-watch. The whole movie is almost played out like a poem with glimpses of action in my mind, with possible hints of some social commentary in it (Although it definitely is NOT about that). The metaphors play wonderfully, and it has a very weird and strange sort of power to it, and it really makes you see this entire world created through a child's eyes and how they would see it making it a wonderful achievement.

    Next, although the only acting you can really commend is Ms. Wallis (not trying to pronounce her first name) for completely carrying this movie at an incredibly young age, everybody is fine in it, but Wallis is fantastic. It is also beautiful to watch and for something with a budget of measly 2 million dollars its effects and visuals are very impressive.

    Now before I give the film a rating let me say not everybody is going to enjoy this movie, it requires lots of thought and attention (although it is fairly short so you don't need to give it for to long) and there are no parts where you can really turn your brain off and watch like a lot of movies. It is also one that you need to see multiple times to get a decent grasp at its meaning and impact, and it has a really great punch to it when you do. So with all that in mind I will give The Beasts of Southern Wild an 8.7/10

    The Reader 8/10, amazing story and once Ralph Fiennes gets on screen it's an incredible watch.

    Les Misérables - 9.5/10

    I actually really liked this movie. I liked the songs. The actors did a great job. The fact that they were singing all their parts live to the camera, instead of having it pre- recorded and lip syncing, I thought was amazing.

    Dredd
    Pretty much everything you see in the trailer is what you are going to get, it's an action movie to keep you entertained and will satisfy you if you are a Judge Dredd fan. However as for me who had never heard of Judge Dredd I found the opening typical action cheese, and Dredd sounded like he was the voice acting star of an FPS video game (not in a good way), but that speaks more for the script. However I can't get to critical on this since it isn't trying to be anything other than an entertaining hour and a half. (But definitely not an incredibly entertaining hour and a half, something you would watch on weekday night when you have nothing to do and nowhere to go) So thinking of that I will give Dredd 5.5/10

    Cloud Atlas

    9/10

    Incredible movie, but it sort of lacks a climax at the end, but that may very well be the point as it's about our lives, which will obviously go into new time ages. It was amazing though, loved it.

    Scott Pilgrim VS. The world

    2/10

    Just terrible. This retro-grade abortion of a film would leave even the biggest of hipsters begging for a swap to a justin beiber documentary.

    Watched Killer Elite last night, would give it a 7/10, I guess....Jason Statham seems to have a new movie out every month and though it had some big names in the movie, I can't really say it was anything special, but it wasn't bad either.

    Also saw a horror movie called Rosewood Lane the night before, I'd give it a 6/10, mostly because I actually thought the revelation of who the antagonist is was more interesting than I expected...but the rest of the movie was full of your typical horror movie crap like stupid characters, deaths you could see coming a mile away, and more stupid characters.

    Gangster Squad - 7/10. It's a solid action film, but nothing more. I didn't get attached to any of the characters at all, really. It had some great scenes in it though, and Sean Penn's acting was great, as usual. Ryan Gosling is always nice to look at. (;

    Seven Psychopaths 7/10...it's no In Bruges but still a decent movie and sophomore effort from Martin McDonagh.

    The Hobbit: 9/10

    Loved it.

    "This is 40"

    7.5/10, Another good comedy from Judd Apatow, though some parts get a bit too serious and some are just rather awkward/cringeworthy.

    But would recommend a viewing.

    Saw this with my girlfriend, I'd give it an 8/10. I became attached to the moustache guy.

    What was actually wrong with it? It wasnt as good as the books but then again, what is?

    Taken 2: solid 8/10. Better than the first imo.

    Penny Pinchers, 7/10 was quite good, would recommend to anyone who likes the genre.
