London films

Well, I’m back from yearly London cinema trip, and as such, I thought I’d give a run down (i.e. mini reviews) of the films that I watched whilst I was away…

Films watched:
X-Files: I Want to Believe



Like a boring TV episode of X-Files multiplied by 100.

3/10

The Incredible Hulk


A vast improvement on “Hulk”. Incredible – No, Good – Yes.

7/10


Wanted



Silly adolescent wish fulfilment actioner. Fun, but slightly insulting.

6/10

The Dark Knight



Excellent sequel, and possibly the best superhero movie to date.

9/10

For the Dark Knight, I’d also like to add that I managed to catch it twice whilst I was away, once at the IMAX. I’d also quite happily go and see it a third time, the only thing that’s stopping me from doing that is the knowledge that I’d have to sit down and watch it in the crap excuse for a cinema that we have here. Anyway, watching it at the IMAX has convinced me that I MUST go over to London again to catch Watchmen when it is released on the IMAX… It really is a stunning cinema experience (more so that specific scenes of The Dark Knight was filmed in IMAX format).

I have also watched the following yesterday:

Daywatch


Inferior sequel. Flash, but largely nonsensical and boring.

5.5/10

Not a big fan of the Spiderman films?

I like them (especially Spiderman 2)... I just don't there quite a good as some people make out. Certainly not as good as Batman Begins and The Dark Knight IMHO
