I went to see Predators this afternoon. I thought it was all jolly good fun. I can't be bothered writing some lengthy review. It kind of does what it says on the tin.A few twisty turns in there, plus it's always good fun to figure out who's going to get killed first.

Inception. At the moment it feels like one of the best movies ever made.

'FAQs about Time Travel' on BBC earlier this week. I was just about to go to bed when this came on. I like Chris O'Dowd so I decided to watch it and was pleasantly surprised by a film I'd never heard about. It's a somewhat dark comedy.

Harry Brown is really excellent. It's a bit more than a Brit version of Gran Torino. I kind of forgot that it was Michael Caine which takes some doing. The bit where he's sobbing on the sofa after is friend's death is really poignant.

I got Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen out of the library the other day (I wasn't going to pay for it). It was shite. It just turned into crash, bang, wallop CGI wallpaper. I didn't mind the first one. It was kinda playful.This stunk to high heaven though. Total dogshit.

There was an article about the real Henry Hill in Empire which was pretty interesting, so I thought I'd watch Goodfellas for the first time in about 10 years. What an amazing film. It's nearly flawless.The use of narration really drives the story along, and I love it when the pace picks up when he's seeing helicopters everywhere.The soundtrack is great too, and the attention to detail is staggering. That film really makes me hungry too. I'm having meatballs and pasta tonight, so I'm going to try the slicing garlic so thin it liquifies in the pan method.

And the Joe Pesci how am I funny scene is one of the greatest scenes in cinema history

It's been a month of pap for me. Recently viewed:

A Team: meaningless nonsense with action sequences so nonsensical they needed a commentary, but aware of it's own limitations and fun nonetheless.

The Expendables: horrible, nonsensical remake of the worst sort of 80s action movie. Very expendable.

Piranha 3d: As much soft core porn as action movie but saved from being totally unlikable by a reasonable (if unsubtle) sense of humour and at least 2 scenes (and 1 actor) ripped straight from Jaws ('homages', as they say).

I haven't been along to the Film Fans for several months now, as I tend to go to the Cornerhouse in midweek now, on the way home from work.

September has been a top month for films! I've seen three excellent films in the last few weeks: The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Secret In Their Eyes and Winter's Bone. All very different, but all very good.

The Secret In Their Eyes gets my nomination for the best film of the year so far!
