Movies: Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (12A), The Imitation Game (12A), 30 Days of Night (DVD – 18) and As Good As It Gets (DVD – 15)

Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 (12A) – what’s it about? The third movie in the Hunger Games saga, Katniss aids the resistance by becoming the Mockingjay…

Really if you liked the others ones this won’t disappoint – the usual stands though if you don’t like the saga then you know don’t watch it! It was great though to have a story with a lot more to it – more than just the games which are cool of course – but you know with it getting down to more well you know plot. I really don’t want to say too much as you know spoilers – but yeah check it out it’s pretty damn awesome!

The Imitation Game (12A) – what’s it about? Based on a true story – Alan Turing and his team try to crack the Enigma code used by the Nazi’s in World War 2.

Ok well I kinda thought this was going to be really depressing as it was a true story – and you know usually they are depressing (and usually something I don’t like watching) but this was actually really well made and though it touches on some subjects which are very sad – it doesn’t make you come away wanting to jump off a cliff. It was well made – and is worth a look if you’d like to see a problem solving movie…

30 Days of Night (DVD – 18) – what’s it about? A remote town in Alaska is plunged into its annual month of darkness – this time though they face a group of unruly vampires who are taking advantage of the no sunlight!

I really really really really love this film – it’s up there near the top of my list of all time favourite movies J - it has vampires and killing and blood and humans going crazy and really cool well stuff. I really like the way some of this was shot with the white snow covered in blood – it’s so effective! It’s a true vampire film – if you love vampire movies and haven’t see this one then you really really should stop what you’re doing and watch it – it’s so worth it…you wont regret it…well unless you expect some fagpire Twilight junk…then you’ll probably cry and hide behind the couch lol.

As Good As It Gets (DVD – 15) – what’s it about? A writer with OCD who isn’t a very nice guy ends up unexpectedly forming a friendship waitress and a gay artist.

This isn’t usually my type of movie at all – it’s a complete chick flick…you know a curl up on a Sunday afternoon with a blanket and bucket of ice cream and watch something that’s trash. I’m not saying at all this is a bad movie – but you get the picture of what to expect – it’s a romcom but it’s a good one – if that’s actually possible…anyhow I like this movie quite a lot – I’ve watched it a few times and if I’m ever in a “girlie” mood this is one I put on…it’s a nice movie – it’s funny – and sweet – and well a little odd.
