UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

Week ending 14th October 2012

By Kirkiechick

Welcome back to the chart! This week has seen Taken 2 still holding the top spot and beating off any competition. Let us see how the rest of the chart is faring up this week!


1. Taken 2, £3,743,046: Total: £14,495,284

2. Hotel Transylvania, £1,734,231  (New)

3. Sinister, £1,259,405: Total: £3,698,363

4. Looper, £1,175,220: Total: £7,566,485

5. The Perks of Being a Wallflower, £397,869: Total:£1,546,290

6. Ruby Sparks, £299,382 (New)

7. On the Road, £218,738 (New)

8. ParaNorman, £212,810: Total: £5,617,162

9. The Campaign, £170,286: Total: £2,108,212

10. Untouchable, £144,432: Total: £1,301,345

The number 1 is still Taken 2, from all reports the storyline isn’t great but it is a decent film enough to pull in the audience. Number 2 sees a new release and a children’s film, Hotel Transylvania. The story of a vampire who creates a hotel for monsters and will not let his vampire daughter leave to see the outside world. No humans allowed! A human does turn up and falls in love with the vampire daughter. It looks funny and not just one for the children! Sinister is holding strong in the chart at number 3. I went to see the film. It was very jumpy! I do recommend! Number 4 also sees Looper holding its ground in the chart. Another good film! The Perks of Being a Wallflower is at number 5. It is a sweet film and charming to watch. Number 6 sees a new entry, Ruby Sparks, from the makers of Little Miss Sunshine. A cute looking love life film. On the Road is at number 7, the film version of the book of the same name by Jack Kerouac. The classic 1957 book was the inspiration for road trips and exploring one’s self throughout the late 1950s and beyond. ParaNorman drops slightly in the chart to number 8. I highly recommend. Comedy The Campaign is sitting still in the chart at number 9. The French film Untouchable drops slightly in the chart down to number 10.

That is your top ten films for this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!

UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

 Week ending 7th October 2012

Welcome back to the weekly chart! There are a few changes in the chart this week. A new number one doing well and it is a sequel. So let us see how things are in the chart.

1.Taken 2, £7,378,048 (New)

2. Looper, £1,519,503: Total: £5,412,102

3. Sinister, £1,435,722  (New)

4. The Perks of Being a Wallflower, £827,983  (New)

5. ParaNorman, £797,754: Total: £5,263,993

6. The Campaign, £389,287: Total: £1,675,159

7. Brave, £304,735: Total: £21,570,349

8. Resident Evil: Retribution, £286,350: Total: £1,519,851

9. Untouchable, £245,343: Total: £964,308

10. Hope Springs, £190,860: Total: £3,563,199

Taken 2 comes straight in at number 1. It is a sequel to Taken, starring Liam Neeson as an ex CIA agent whose daughter gets kidnapped by an Eastern gang using girls in the sex trade. The first one was very violent and a 15, this sequel has a lower age rating of a 12A so families can go. I’m personally disappointed for the lower rating and feel that there should be more violence. The story this time around shows there is a consequence to Neeson’s character killing all the men he did in the first one. At number 2 we have Looper dropping from the top spot of last week. I went to see this film and thoroughly enjoyed the time travelling tale. I recommend! Sinister comes straight in at number 3. A jumpy horror from the makers of Insidious and Paranormal Activity, starring Ethan Hawke as a writer who moves into a house whilst he is writing a horror story and discovers a terrifying secret. Number 4 sees the teen drama The Perks of Being a Wallflower, starring Emma Watson from Harry Potter fame. ParaNorman is at number 5, one of the few children’s films out at the moment. It is such a heart warming film, go see! Will Ferrell comedy The Campaign drops slightly in the chart to number 6. This comedy hasn’t been as successful as other Will Ferrell comedies. Brave is still in the chart at number 7 and has been in the top ten for a consecutive ten weeks. Resident Evil: Retribution has dropped considerably down from last week’s third position to number 8. Apparently it seems that this film in the Resident Evil series isn’t interesting fans and audiences. The French film Untouchable goes up a place from last week to number 9. At number 10 Hope Springs still hangs in there in the chart. The older generation is keeping the film in there.

That’s it for the chart this week. Until next time happy cinema viewing!

So another month flies by, and we are already in September. Crazy times. It will be Christmas before you know it, and I love Christmas, at least I used to. I’ve had 3 shitty Christmases in a row, so this year, I’m planning to have a great old time. Anyway, enough about my festive plans, and onwards to movie of the month! There have been some great comedies this year, I have enjoyed Wanderlust, Ted, 21 Jump Street and even had a some time for the Dictator. I have yet to see The Watch, but it looks like it might be worth your time too, however, this months Movie of the Month is going to be a comedy that looks like an under the radar gem.

The Campaign brings Will Ferrel into direct conflict with Zack Galifinackis, and it looks like this meeting of comedy minds has produced a rather hilarious film. No film in which a grown man punches a small child can be a bad thing, I refuse to believe it. Check out the trailer below, I’m hoping that this film will be a classic on the level of Anchorman or Hotrod. Now I know it probably won’t be that good, but it might be as good as Blades of Glory, and that will be good enough. Of course it might be shit, but then, you have to take a punt on these things don’t you?


I’m not going to lie to you but this month has been really hard to find a movie I wanted to pick for my choice. Beefnuts has already told you about his movie pick for this month and I have to pick the other movie I think you should see, its been a tough one I can tell you that. There is very little out this month making the pickings rather slim to say the least.

 However I have manged to pick a movie I think you should give a go and that is Dredd.

In a violent, futuristic city where the police have the authority to act as judge, jury and executioner, a cop teams with a trainee to take down a gang that deals the reality-altering drug, SLO-MO. With Karl Urban taking on Dredd this looks to be a good bit of movie fair. I will tell you no more but leave you to watch the trailer and see for yourself.
