While on holidays and over last few weeks in general I have seen a few films, While not as gifted as Gundam is at reviews here is my stab at a couple ;) Please not that a bad film islikely to get more said as it is easier to complain then praise when it comes to films.

Robocop (DVD)  Ok now I will admit I was one of the naysayers that thought this would either suck big piles of donkey cack or be average.
I was pleasantly surprised to find it was actually a fun movie.  Yes it is a reworking of the start of Robocop but some of it works, even if some dont.

Robocops' new body is faster but he cannot take as much damage it seems, which is why he is better armed now.  There are some scenes that made me smile (including the OCP salesman's response to hearing that Murphy had solved his own murder.  the scene has some good moments but it has lost the punch of the original film.  Mainly to fit in (I'm guessing) a future toy line of Robocop toys the film lost much of it's violent side to make it a 12 not an 18.  While there is a good story in there and some good acting, the lack of punch for anyone who has seen the original film is going to be a little off putting.  While a good film in its own way, it falls short as there is no sense of Murphy trying to find himself after they drug him to remove his emotions.  All of a sudden he gets them back because his son is suffering distress at the loss of his dad and the media attention surrounding his rebirth as a cyborg.

The biggest let down in the film for me was actually Samuel L Jackson with his tv show in the film which felt as nothing more then a guy who evidently was taking cash from OCP to further their ends, it's overblown and too obvious.

Overall I would give it 6 out of 10

How to train your Dragon 2 (3D cinema)
Anyone who saw the 1st movie will love this, its funny, and heartwarming in places, and even plucks at your heart when a major character dies, when they do its in a truly heroic manner.  The 3D works pretty well  The dragons as ever are epic and the fight scenes are amazing.

The only worry I have of this film is that after being so epic in scope, with the jokes, the heroics, showing just how powerful Toothless the Night Fury really is this...

Where the helldo they go from that ending? They have said that it was a trilogy but after that 2nd film I cannot see how the third will surpass it.

Overall Score 9 out of 10

Transformers AOE(3d Cinema)

Oh dear, Micheal Bay what the actual F**K have you done here?

Ok so the continuity issues first: No mention is made as to why Sam is no longer around,what we do get is talk about how after the last battle that resulted in Chicago getting smashed to hell, the Earth governments decide to cut all links to the Autobots and fight thier own battles but as a token for the fact that they have lost some of their own fighting for us,they were allowed sanctuary.  A CIA task force is set up to hunt down and kill any remaining Decepticons; and here is where it all goes cacky.

The CIA is a foreign intelligence agency that IS NOT ALLOWED TO OPERATE IN THE USA! So the taskforce instead would have been the NSA.

Leaving that aside, the US president apparently oblivious to the fact that this unit is in fact hunting down and killing all transformers regardless of side they are on, resulting in the brutal hunting down and MURDER of (spoilers) Ratchet who is the MEDIC in the Autobots with the least weaponry.

Never mind the boss of this unit is doing it so he can join a company trying to build transformers from their own remains.  (can someone explain tome why they cast Kelsey Grammer AKA Frasier as an evil CIA agent? He is way out of his league in this kind of his film!

Like other ppl have said the human family in this film and their interactions are kind of annoying in someways, Mark Wahlberg actually does a good job,but after the last 2 female leads being so string characters, his daughter in this film is basically there to look hot and scream constantly, her boyfriend? Ok he can drive, big whoop but he is a coward!

Then the other stuff. Dinobots? WHY? So HASBRO can sell more toys! Simple as that. Galvatron being basically Megatron again :yawn: 3 new autobots who are forgettable to the point I cannot remember their names and one of them even acts more like Starscream ashe is so self centered and selfish.  Prime himself in every movie is made progresivly weaker, WTF? This is the guy who tried for peace between the 2 races, but every single film he gets worse at fighting (apart from kicking the head in of a dinobot to make them follow him).

The £d works well and the action is good; but the film lacks pacing, cohesiveness,and for me apart from Bumblebee no characters togive a flying monkeys ass about.

It is time for a reboot of the series going back to the start and following the canon, it is clear over the films why they have not, so Hasbro can sell new toys, simple as that.

Overall 4 out of 10.

Need for Speed (MAJOR SPOILERS HERE)

Ok did not see this coming, I thought it would suck, but I love this film, flaws included.

I thought it was being rushed through after Paul Walkers' tragic death to fill the gap while they F&F franchise decided what to do next.  However, they did not sue CGI for anything other then the unveiling of the 1st hero car of the film the Ford Mustang (While not the same paintwork, they used the same colours as the GTR Paul drove in 2fast, 2furious).  Instead they used fake mock ups of the cars (built with the help of the companies that make the real ones) so they could get close in and do detail shots while racing and when the inevitable crashes happen they are real things flying through the air and exploding.

The plot is basic enough, 2 former school rivals make a peace deal for one of them to build the Mustang and take 25% of the profits for the one of a kind custom car.  After they sellit the aggrieved Dino feeling that the hero Tobey is a threat challenges him toa race for the full value of the car (how the heck you sell a Mustang for $2.7 million is beyond me frankly!

Ofc Tobey's mate Pete wants to race too and is helping Tobey win when he is rammed and flips his car.

Dino does a runner and Tobey is framed for the theft of the cars in the race.

Somehow he persuades the owner of the Mustang tolet him borrow it to violate his parole and try to get into the De Leon illegal race.  Cue high speed action as ppk try to stop him getting there, both the cops doing their jobs and others trying to win the bounty of a $2million Lambo if they stop him racing.

Ofc Tobey has back up from his buddies and the girl sent to watch him and make sure he dont steal the car.  But the police say he is wanted for breaking Parole and GTA? So what suddenly the Mustang was reported stolen???

Anyway the car gets junked, Tobey's ex who is married to the bad guy and is also Pete's sister leaves Dino and gives Tobey access to the hidden evidence from the race which he uses to save the day and bring Dino to justice, in a great race sequence where the copstry to stop the racers and fail a great deal.

The ending I do not fully understand.  HE goes back to prison for breaching bail AFTER proving he was framed and did 2 years for something he did not do?  I do not know how the US legal system works but that seems a bit harsh!

Despite some odd plot moments it has some fun, some romance and drama and some great action sections,well in keeping with the earlier NFS games.

Overall would rate it 9 out of 10
