Hello there! The number one has changed again this week. We have Wreck –It Ralph moved back up to the top spot. I went to this film and I really enjoyed. It is has a great story appealing for adults and children alike. Let us see what the rest of the chart brings.

Wreck

 

1. Wreck-It Ralph, £3,420,196: Total: £18,624,692

2. A Good Day to Die Hard, £1,646,541: Total: £8,192,198

3. Mama, £1,512,297 (New)

4. Les Misérables, £765,367: Total: £37,804,139

5. I Give It a Year, £632,195: Total: £5,084,998

6. Cloud Atlas, £544,725 (New)

7. This Is 40, £473,915: Total: £2,288,475

8. Song for Marion, £456,714 (New)

9. Django Unchained, £427,027: Total: £14,541,950

10. Beautiful Creatures, £398,401: Total: £2,170,260

 

At number 2 we have A Good Day to Die Hard. It is a good film if you just want mindless action and not much story. It is a Die Hard film what are you expecting? At number 3 we have a new entry with Mama. A scary film telling the story of two children who go missing on the day that their father kills their mother. Their Uncle spends five years looking for them. They are found in a cabin in the woods, but have they brought something back with them? At number 4 is Les Miserables still bringing in audiences. Best to have your hanky ready! At number 5 we have I Give It a Year. The British romantic comedy is making people laugh with its unconventional type of love story. Number 6 is a new entry with Cloud Atlas. I really enjoyed this film. It took a while to get used to the storyline jumping back and forth across centuries. A visually amazing film. At number 7 is This is 40. It seems this sort of sequel to Knocked Up hasn’t done as well as the predecessor. We have Song for Marion at number 8. This is a film for the Grey Pound, unfortunately not doing as good as previous films like Quartet this year and Exotic Marigold Hotel last year. At number 9 we have Django Unchained. Still bringing in audiences with its different take on a western. At number 10 we have Beautiful Creatures for the teens and fantasy lovers.

 

I hope there is something for everyone in this chart this week. That is your top ten films for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!

Hello there! Welcome back to the chart for this week. The children’s current favourite film Wreck- It Ralph got toppled by one of the big Valentine’s films, A Good Day to Die Hard. The fifth instalment for the Die Hard films brings into the mix the wayward son of Jon McClane. Let us see the rest of the chart for this week.

 Good Day To Die Hard 5 film 2013 movie poster large

1. A Good Day to Die Hard, £4,551,116 (New)

2. Wreck-It Ralph, £3,436,400: Total: £10,516,665

3. This Is 40, £1,229,352 (New)

4. Les Misérables, £1,126,168: Total: £35,968,027

5. Beautiful Creatures, £1,109,167 (New)

6. I Give It a Year, £1,014,707: Total: £3,685,804

7. Django Unchained, £685,389: Total: £13,707,266

9. Lincoln, £483,397: Total: £6,964,023

10. Flight, £472,983: Total: £4,181,690

 

At number 2 we have Wreck-It Ralph appealing to the adults and children. It does look like a fun family film. This is 40 is at number 3. Touted as the sort of sequel to Knocked Up. This film tells the story of two of the characters first seen in Knocked Up. They have reached the age of 40 and life is full of children and trying to grab me time away from the spouse! The film was released for Valentine’s Day, which meant many couples went to see this! At number 4 we have Les Miserables still bringing the audiences in. I suggest you catch the film before it leaves the cinema. We have a new entry at number 5, Beautiful Creatures. It is the season of the witch. Some critics have touted this as the next Twilight series. Fans of the Beautiful Creatures book series would deny this! The film tells the story of a girl approaching sixteen who is a Witch. She will be chosen for the light or the dark. She has fallen in love with a boy and this impending doom endangers them. At number 6 we have I Give It a Year, a British comedy about marriage. Number 7 we have Django Unchained still pulling in the audiences. A brilliant film from Tarantino. Number 8 is a new entry with Sammy’s Great Escape, a children’s film about the story of two turtles setting out on a journey to rescue their Grandparent turtles from a zoo. Lincoln is at number 9. The film does look like an amazing historical tale of President Lincoln. At number 10 we have Flight, an emotional charged film about the amazing feat of one man which is shadowed by his personal demons.

I hope there is something for everyone in this chart this week. That is your top ten films for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!

Welcome back to the film chart for this week! We have a new entry this week! Les Miserables has been knocked off the top spot! In its place we have what could become a classic children’s film, Wreck-It Ralph. Released for the half-term holidays to entertain the children. The story of a baddie computer character who decides that he isn’t the bad guy and does not want to be that anymore. He decides to game jump to become the hero! Let us see the rest of the chart for this week.

wir

1. Wreck-It Ralph, £4,526,380 (New)

2. Les Misérables, £1,640,857: Total: £33,456,340

3. I Give It a Year, £1,450,023 (New)

4. Django Unchained, £1,073,775: Total: £12,407,764

5. Flight, £925,049: Total: £3,186,967

6. Warm Bodies, £895,509 (New)

7. Lincoln, £809,196: Total: £5,916,579

9. Life of Pi, £462,559: Total: £28,098,112

10. The Impossible, £351,193: Total: £12,751,395

 

At number 2 we have Les Miserables still making audiences cry. I know of people who have gone to see the film several times. I think this film will be in cinemas for awhile yet. Number 3 is a new entry with I Give It a Year, a comedy about a couple who marry within a year of meeting each other, set off on married life. It seems they are struggling in their first few months of marriage and go to counselling, will their love survive? At number 4 we have Django Unchained, a brilliant film and not for the faint hearted or the easy offended. Quentin Tarantino has made another classic film! At number 5 is Flight. A human emotion story that will tug at the heart strings. Number 6 is a new entry with Warm Bodies. This film can be described as a zombie rom-com. I saw this film this week. I enjoyed it. It was funny and an easy watch. Number 7 is Lincoln, bringing out the older generation for this film. It did win the Best Leading Actor Bafta at the weekend for Daniel Day-Lewis. Number 8 is a new entry with Hitchcock, the story behind Alfred Hitchcock’s film Psycho from the 1960s. The film has quite a cast with Anthony Hopkins, Helen Mirren and Scarlett Johansson. At number 9 we have Life of Pi still sitting strong in the cinemas after two months. I really recommend this film. At number 10 we have The Impossible, another film which has been in the cinemas for awhile. Some scenes have disturbed audience members, some have even been sick or fainted. This may be a film to watch a home when it comes out on DVD and not in the cinema.

 

I hope there is something for everyone in this chart this week. That is your top ten films for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!

1. Les Misérables, £2,785,143: Total: £30,137,493

2. Django Unchained, £1,696,391: Total: £10,308,028

3. Flight, £1,401,214 (New)

10. Movie 43, £396,833: Total: £1,581,864

At number 2 is Django Unchained. I went to see this film last week. It was an amazing film. It was quite violent and not for the faint hearted. I do recommend you check it out. At number 3 is a new entry with Flight. Starring Denzel Washington as a Commercial Pilot who lands his plane after technical problems. Investigations in the crash bring up other issues. This film is a human interest story. At number 4 is Lincoln. The film is nominated for many awards. Go watch this if you want to watch a historical film. Number 5 sees Life of Pi still hanging in the chart. It is a wonderful film. The Impossible is at number 6. In places the film is uncomfortable to watch. At number 7 is Zero Dark Thirty. It is a long film and contains a lot of scenes of torture. At number 8 is Monsters, Inc 3D. A lot of people are thinking this is the sequel to the first one, when in fact it is the first film re-released in 3D. Number 9 sees a new entry with Bullet to the Head. Starring Sylvester Stallone as a hitman who tries to get retribution for the death of his partner. At number 10 is Movie 43. From the audience who are coming out of watching this film there are no words to describe it. Apparently a really bad film!

I hope there is something for everyone in this chart this week. That is your top ten films for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!

Welcome back to the chart! Snow has melted away from most of Britain by the end of this week. This meant that the cinema audiences ventured out again. Les Miserables is still at the top spot of the chart! I finally got to see the film and it was very emotional. If you don’t like musicals then this film isn’t for you! Let us see the rest of the chart!

Les-Miserables-Multi-Character-Movie-Poster-Large

1. Les Misérables, £4,016,611: Total: £24.618,896

2. Django Unchained, £2,419,846: Total: £7,185,499

3. Lincoln, £1,657,337 (New)

4. Life of Pi, £1,119,570: Total: £25,957,044

5. Zero Dark Thirty, £1,052,845 (New)

6. The Impossible, £1,006,477: Total: £10,777,332

9. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, £623,889: Total: £51,020,811

10. The Last Stand, £538,867 (New)

At number 2 is Django Unchained. Tarantino has done it again. He has wowed audiences with his own style of film. Number 3 is a new entry with Lincoln, Daniel Day-Lewis plays the American President during the time of the American Civil War. A period piece for Steven Spielberg and nominated for 12 Oscars. Number 4 sees Life of Pi sitting strong in the chart. It is an amazing film! Number 5 is a new entry. Zero Dark Thirty comes from the director of The Hurt Locker. This new entry tells the story of the ten year hunt for Osama Bin Laden and the capture of him. At number 6 is The Impossible. Not for the faint hearted as some scenes are quite graphic. Number 7 is a new entry with Movie 43. A series of short films starring some big names in Hollywood. A loose storyline of a producer pitching ideas for a film. Apparently quite rude and crude. Number 8 sees the re-release of Monsters, Inc 3D. Number 9 sees The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey still in the chart. Number 10 is a new entry and a comeback for Arnold Schwarzenegger, The Last Stand. A drug leader breaks out of jail and races to the Mexican border where a sheriff and his rookie staff are the only ones which stand in his way.

I hope there is something for everyone in this chart this week. That is your top ten films for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!

Hello there! This week’s chart and the progress of films have been hampered by the bad weather. Snow falling over parts of Britain last Friday caused disruption. I know where I am some of the cinemas didn’t open and some closed early. It was amazing to see people still turning up to watch films when they had been advised to not undertake unnecessary travel. I guess going to the cinema was necessary travel for some! On to the chart now, the top spot still sees the film Les Miserables sitting strong. Let us see the rest of the chart!

 les-mis-poster_hugh-jackman

1. Les Misérables, £4,406,828: Total: £17,360,303

2. Django Unchained, £2,801,312 (New)

3. Life of Pi, £1,201,163: Total: £24,147,499

4. The Impossible, £1,092,754: Total: £9,118,833

5. Gangster Squad, £791,799: Total: £3,890,342

6. The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, £765,437: Total: £49,997,203

7. Monsters, Inc 3D, £681,247 (New)

8. Quartet, £335,518: Total: £5,904,503

9. Jack Reacher, £212,540: Total: £9,126,695

10. Parental Guidance, £206,060: Total: £4,224,758

At number 2 we have a new entry from the director Quentin Tarantino. Django Unchained is the new offering from him. It has a stellar cast and sees Leonardo Dicaprio as a nasty character, which is a change for him. It is the story of a slave, Django (the D is silent) who is freed and hired as a bounty hunter. He sets off to free his wife from slavery. At number 3 is Life of Pi. The film is amazing! Please everyone go see this film. Number 4 is The Impossible. Tissues at the ready for this human interest story. Gangster Squad is at number 5. I went to see this. I really enjoyed it. There were a few plot holes and I think they were a bit economical with the historic truth for the conclusion of the film. Number 6 is The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey still sitting strong. At number 7 is Monsters, Inc 3D. A re-release of the original Pixar film but in 3D. The sequel is out in the summer. There aren’t many children’s films out at the moment. At number 8 is Quartet for the older generation! Tom Cruise is still bringing the audiences in with Jack Reacher at number 9. Number 10 is Parental Guidance, which I think is doing well due to lack of other children’s films out on release.

I hope there is something for everyone in this chart this week. That is your top ten films for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!

Movie of the Month: January 2013

By Geeky Gem and Hmsbeefnuts

Well it is very nearly our birthday here at All Geek to Me, its been one whole year since Hmsbeefnuts and I decided to share our geekyness with you all and since then we have grown. New bloggers joined us in the form of KirkieChick and Caelrona, we’ve also had guests blogs from Ammzy. All of this has been great but I am sure we’ll write more about that on the day it’s self. Who knows, any way back to the matter in hand Movie of the month, last year Hmsbeefnuts took all the odd months and i had the even months. This year we have switched things up. So for our first movie of the month for 2013 i give you Django Unchained.

Django-Unchained

This is the new movie from Quentin Tarantino, you know the guy that Killed Bill, From Dusk til Dawn. You know him, anyway he also wrote the screen play for this movie and it stars Jamie Foxx and Leonardo DiCaprio. It tells the tale of Django who with the help of his mentor, a slave-turned-bounty hunter sets out to rescue his wife from a brutal Mississippi plantation owner. Now from what I have seen of the trailer it looks really good, I like Tarantino movies and this one looks really good. I shall say now more so here is the trailer.

Well that’s my pick until next month.

Geeky Gem

 

Hello, Hmsbeefnuts here, now I have had a look at January movies, and to be honest, there is nothing that takes my fancy quite like Django Unchained. The reviews I’ve read have been stellar, and I really think that Tarrantino is making his best films right now, with Inglorious Basterds my personal favourite Tarrantino Movie. Django looks equally as awesome, so I’m afraid that I’m just going to have to back up what Geeky Gem has said. That, or go and see The Hobbit again, because it is fantastic. Happy New Year!!!

   

Wednesday Whimsy

By @hmsbeefnuts

Thursday is named after the mighty Thunder God Thor, but today isn’t Thursday. It is Wednesday, and as we all know, Wednesday is named after the God of both Weddings and Retro Gaming, WedNES (sic). WedNES, was in the Greek Pantheon and was son of Zeus and the beautiful Princess Peach. Greeks would pray to WedNES on the occasions of weddings, or indeed, when they were experiencing a particularly hard level of Mario Bros. The usual offerings were a mysterious liquid called Gamerfuel, or some marzipan and icing. This of course is complete rubbish that I have made up, in order to start Wednesday off in a whimsical tone. With that done, onwards to some stuff!!!

June has started off quite well movie wise. Thus far this month, I have seen Snow White and the Huntsman, Prometheus and Red Tails. I have enjoyed all three, so that’s a positive. Next, I am very much looking forward to the re-release of JAWS. I have never seen this in a cinema, and very much want to, it is one of my 2 favourite films of all time after all. Please local ODEON Cardiff Bay. Please show JAWS. I will love you forever, well, love you more than I already do, which is a not inconsiderable amount.

Talking of Cinema, the subject of snacks enters my mind. What are your favourite Cinema nibbles? I know people who basically bring a full picnic into a movie, and others that don’t even sip a drink. Personally, I like a sandwich/hot dog, or nachos, I can’t stand popcorn, and a Pepsi Max or 7-up. When I was in the States, the cinema snack selection was vastly superior, chicken fingers and curly fries, with a refillable Mr Pibb, hell yeah. There is something so disgustingly amazing about the nacho cheese that draws me to it again and again, horribly delicious.

In TV land, I am finding it very hard to deal with the loss of Game of Thrones. It is far far to long to wait for Season 3. I will have to find a replacement show, and as it happens, Dexter starts soon, so I can replace Westeros for Miami. I know True Blood is back this week, and I really loved the first 3 seasons, but season 4 lost me, it was too much with the fairies and stuff. I haven’t yet seen the second (third?) season of Spartacus, so I will definitely be giving that a go, and Finding Bigfoot comes back soon too, so maybe it won’t be so bad after all.

I have bought a lot of Batman Graphic Novels in the past, not so many in the last year, but I have picked up the re-released No Mans Land Vol. 1 & 2. The Dark Knight Rises is supposed to be, at least slightly, inspired by these books, and so I will work my way through them before I go and see the film. I am also stuck half way through A Storm of Swords Book 1. I’m finding it such a chore to read at the moment, the more I write, the less I want to read it seems. Although I have been working my way through The Monster Hunters Survival Guide, by. A lovely book explaining how to kill, or subdue numerous monsters throughout the world, it is wonderfully illustrated, and I feel by the end of it, I will be fully prepared for every monstrous eventuality. My favourite chapter, has of course, been on Bigfoot.

Games were announced at E3, games that look amazing and I really want to play, and as with reading, I don’t have much time to play games any more. Nintendo’s E3 conference was a bit of a damp squib, although I still want a Wii U. I’m shocked that they didn’t announce a 3D Mario, Zelda, Mario Kart, Star Fox, F-Zero, Metroid, Smash Brothers, or Donkey Kong. However, New Super Mario Bros. U looks good, and some of the Nintendoland mini games look fun, but surely this game needs to come free with the Wii U, just like Wii Sports came with the Wii.

Finally, I will leave you with some awesome looking trailers for Tarrantino’s Django Unchained, and Disney’s new animation Wreck It Ralf. Check them out below, and catch you soon.
