Burke & Hare

SF: Black comedy is my thing, so this should of been just perfect. Plus I adore half the cast and they filmed next door to me, alas I was rather under whelmed so a sad 4/10

50 Eggs: Very forgettable. Not particularly funny but harmless entertainment. 6/10

DonkeyB: n/a

Overall - 5/10

Legend of the Guardians: The Owls of Gahoole

SF: I love Owls. The animation was lovely and story wasn't that exciting and it take a while to get going but I rather liked it. 6.5/10

50 Eggs: I don't have much to say about this, it was pretty boring really. Why did the talking owls have Australian accents? That's just unrealistic. 4.5/10

DonkeyB: n/a

Overall - 5.5/10

SF: I rather enjoyed the pace of this film. Thought the characters could do with fleshing out a bit more. However has some great sequences just missing that spark. 5/10

50 Eggs: Boring for the most part. These guys are supposed to be genius robbers but they basically just hold up a bank and scarper. Oceans 4/10

DonkeyB: Total shit. 2/10

Overall - 3.67/10

The Social Network

SF: plot wise I wasn't expecting much but West Wing guy has a way of writing that made the whole film strangely compelling. The soundtrack worked perfectly, the witty dialogue was engaging and overall I can't complain even if I loath Facebook. 8/10

50 Eggs: The Facebook move turned out to be brilliantly excellent. Riveting stuff with great performances from Jesse Eisenberg, Andrew Garfield and the supporting cast. 10/10

DonkeyB: Its Aaron Sorkin, what's not to like? Funny, witty, tense. Justin Timberlake is a bastard, so is the guy who invented napster and now they are forever the same person in my head. 9/10

Overall - 9/10

Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps

SF: this whole film was predictable, boring and unimaginative. Lacking the dark edginess of the original. Sorry but Shia LeBouf was rather dull as the lead. Not to mention it's exhaustingly long. 3/10

50 Eggs: Didn't live up to the excellent trailer. Uninspiring and Carey Mulligan is annoying. Stupid bitch. 5.5/10

DonkeyB: Bad Oliver Stone. Worse Shia theBeef. I liked the soundtrack though. Susan Sarandon (boo hiss) is in it, with her for a mother and Michael Douglas for a father figure its no wonder Mr Beef's character is off the rails. 5/10

Overall - 4.5/10
