Everything Must Go - Light hearted, yet rather slow comedy about a relapsing alcoholic played by Will Ferrell - and no there are no scenes where he's screaming. Somewhat different from his usual films, worth a watch to see his slightly more serious side.
Orphan - Really slow to pick up on this, for a modern Hollywood horror film I thought it was decent.
The American - George Clooney plays an assassin (with gunsmith skills on the side) who goes into hiding in some quaint Italian village, who's being chased by some Swedes. Not much dialogue, some nice titillation in it and that's about it.
Rise of the Planet of the Apes - First film I've seen in a UK cinema for years. Got absolutely violated by ticket prices (thought we'd save money going to a zone 2 cinema in London, and avoid central ones like the West End) and popcorn and drinks. Reminded me why I prefer waiting it out and watching movies in the comfort of my own home. I guess there are exceptions like Inception etc... Anyway film was okay, but certainly wouldn't have paid £20 + £10 on popcorn and drinks, for the liberty to watch it had I known. Liked the references to the missing astronauts on their first manned mission to Mars...

Punch-Drunk love - Nice to see Adam Sadler in something more arthouse/independent. Felt the musical score was rather too invasive in places, which in turn dominated the dialogue, much to my annoyance. Overall a decent romantic comedy.
X-Men: First Class - Loved this prequel/reboot, probably the best out of the four films for me. Fassbender stole the show for me.
Thor - Was a tad skeptical about this as Thor is probably one of the least favourite Marvel character for me. Liked the way it ties in and references the other ones... Roll on The Avengers.
Trolljegeren - Blair Witch with trolls. Has it's comedy moments... and no surprise that Hollywood has already picked this up for a remake due 2014.
Mother's Day - Home invasion movie, not bad. If you enjoy the recent remakes of I Spit on your Grave and Last House on the Left then you'll enjoy this.
Attack the Block - Didn't think it was as good as Paul if we're comparing alien comedies released this year. Some of the kids started to grate on me for a while. Overall watchable.
Just watched DRIVE not realizing who the director was. I was taken in right away and KNEW it had to be someone solid. I mean, who choses that font AND Badalamenti right? The film does taper off towards the end but I find that it's in keeping with the Driver's character... glad to have watched it.
BTW if anyone hasn't seen VALHALLA RISING you must.

Pauly Shore's Natural Born Komics Sketch Comedy Movie
Genius in parts but then in others you can tell why he's hollywood's most famous hack. thats kinda why I've always loved Pauly Shore, he's knows he's mostly talentless but he's like "fuck em all, this is America, I'll do what I want."
Sleeping Beauty -I was a bit let down by this . There are some interesting ideas thrown around, but nothing's explored properly, and many plot points are passed by. If it's all to be taken as an ephemeral snapshot of a certain life, without exploration of the long-term effects, then I suppose that this isn't so important.
Browning's (mostly) unlikeable character dissipates much of the sympathy you would normally have for a girl in that situation, though the performance is pretty solid. I think that I personally would have preferred a bit more of an exploration of the culture that led to the Sleeping Beauty Chambers, although the inference is probably that things like this always have, and always will happen, due to messed up human desires.
Worth a watch if you're curious about the concept, but not all that great.
