The Hole

SF: Gremlins for a new generation, a bit scary a bit adventure. I have to admit one bit really freaked me out adding to the intrigue. 7/10

50 Eggs: Narrowly beating Super 8 for best nostalgia movie, and one of my favourite films of the year. Homely, scary and cool all at the same time. 9/10

DonkeyB: n/a

Overall - 8/10

Winter's Bone

SF: Harrowing is the best word to decribe this film. I felt awful after watching this, in fact that's part of the trouble, all you can do is watch. The sheer inhumanity of Ree's situation coupled with the excellent direction really make this film totally gripping. It is not one you enjoying watching, it leaves you rather miserable but the performances are superb. 8/10

50 Eggs: n/a

DonkeyB: Oh so good. One of the films of the year. 9/10

Overall: 8.5/10

SF: A bit unnerving at points but overall a bit blah, wouldn't watch it again. Ok so I did jump once I admit it. 4/10

50 Eggs: A bit stupid but fun, creepy in parts and an interesting premise. 7/10

DonkeyB: Surprised I liked it as much as I did, but the reveal was a bit too obvious. 4/10

Overall - 5/10

The Other Guys

SF: I must have been in a good mood as I really laughed for the first hour but the last 40 mins dragged. Overall does what it sets out to - buddy cop and fun but still a bit odd. 5.5/10

50 Eggs: There are some funny bits in this, like The Rocks cameo and some extended ad libbing, but overall it seems a little bizarre. Would probably be better second time round. 5.5/10

DonkeyB: n/a

Overall -5.5/10

Resident Evil: Afterlife

SF: the worst of all RE films and that's saying something. The opening is pretty good but overall a bit boring and why does Alice lose her powers! 4/10

50Eggs: Better than the other RE's, and more faithful to the games in some ways, but ultimately a bit on the pants side. 6/10

DonkeyB: n/a

Overall - 5/10
