UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

 By Kirkiechick

I am back again with the weekly UK Cinema Chart for the week beginning 27th August 2012. This week has been a slow week. In the cinema industry this week is seen as one of the slowest weeks of the year for releases, the first week after the summer period ending. So let us see which films were buzzing this week:

1. Total Recall, £2,493,230 (New)

2. The Watch, £2,235,933 (New)

3. Brave, £1,604,163 :Total : £17,940,622

4. Ted, £990,842: Total: £28,122,651

5. The Possession, £979,192 (New)

6. The Dark Knight Rises, £759,838: Total: £54,535,548

7. The Bourne Legacy, £714,020: Total: £9,895,086

8. The Expendables 2, £376,319: Total: £5,546,276

9. Keith Lemon: The Film, £370,735: Total: £2,531,902

10. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, £287,969: Total: £7,086,728

Brave has been knocked off the top spot with new release and remake film, Total Recall gets the top spot. The film has also been released in IMAX. This has most probably helped the film get the top spot this week. It is a fast paced action film. I went to see it without seeing the original version. I felt this was best because I could view this version as separate. I do recommend the film but it did feel like the film was lacking from some plot points. In second place is the new Ben Stiller comedy, The Watch. On first glance the film seems like a silly comedy about a group of guys forming a neighbourhood watch group only to discover they have to protect the neighbourhood not just from crime. Brave drops down to number 3. Ted is still doing well at number 4. The Possession is a new entry at number 5. A jumpy horror film keeping audiences on the edge of their seats. The Dark Knight Rises is still staying in the top ten at number 6. The Bourne Legacy is still bringing in audiences at number 7. The Expendables 2 is still explosive fun at number 8. Keith Lemon: The Film has dropped down to number 9. This film will probably drop out the top ten next week as audiences seem to be bored of the persona that is Keith Lemon. Closing the top ten is Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days.

I hope you guys check out Total Recall and The Possession this week. I highly recommend them. Until next time happy cinema viewing.

UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

By Kirkiechick

I am back with the Film Chart. There have been a couple of new releases but Brave is still number one. Ted is sitting comfortably at number 2.

 

1. Brave, £2,371,691: Total: £13,259,610

2. Ted, £1,692,883: Total: £25,620,707

3. The Bourne Legacy, £1,596,289: Total: £7,828,435

4. The Dark Knight Rises, £1,378,717: Total: £52,534,102

5. Keith Lemon: The Film, £1,196,310 (New)

6. The Expendables 2, £1,028,904: Total: £4,316,173

7. The Three Stooges, £509,324 (New)

8. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days, £424,206: Total: £6,217,366

9. Ice Age 4: Continental Drift, £331,851: Total: £28,381,351

10. The Imposter, £252,170 (New)

The Bourne Legacy is in third place. The Dark Knight Rises sits at number 4 and is still strong in the chart. I don’t think this film will be leaving the Top Ten for awhile yet. Number 5 sees a new entry with Keith Lemon: The Film. This has surprised me as reports are people have been walking out before the end saying how terrible the film was. I think we may see a sudden dip for this film in next week’s chart. The Expendables 2 is comfortably making money. The Three Stooges is a slapstick comedy for the family, a reinventing of a comedy act from decades gone by. Diary of a Wimpy Kid: Dog Days and Ice Age 4 stay in the top ten as the school holidays near the end. The Imposter is a documentary about a 16 year old boy from Texas who went missing, appears three years later in Spain. Is he really the missing boy? I believe this film has been an unexpected hit and has appeared at many film festivals this year.

Until next time, enjoy your film watching

Movie of the Month – August 2012

By Geeky Gem and Hmsbeefnuts

We are now in the month of August, which is hard to believe. This means that All Geek is nearly eight months old already. This must mean that it is time for a new movie of the month. when sitting down and having a look at the movies due to grace the big screen this month, one thing became clear. There isn’t much coming out this month that I really fancy.

However one movie has caught my eye, it comes from the mind of the man who bought us Family Guy and American Dad! It will mark his first feature film, this man of course is Seth MacFarlane and what is the movie I hear you cry?

Ted, as I said this is MacFarlane’s first feature film and I for one can’t wait to see what he can do. I am a huge fan of Family Guy and have been for some time. Ted comes about as the result of a childhood wish, John Bennett’s (Mark Walhberg) teddy bear, Ted (Voiced by Seth MacFarlane), came to life and has been by John’s side ever since – a friendship that’s tested when Lori (Mila Kunis), John’s girlfriend of four years, wants more from their relationship.

As always here is the trailer for your viewing pleasure.

Ted sure looks good, but as I can’t choose it, perhaps it is time for me, Hmsbeefnuts, to try and pick something else. Two films stand out to me, The Bourne Legacy and The Expendables 2. I’m going for The Expendables 2, despite the fact the that fucking Orange advert with that twat from The Inbetweeners plays before every fucking film I have watched for like 3 months now. Stallone, Schwarzenegger, Van Damme, Lundgren, Statham, Willis, Crews, Li, Coutre and Norris. That is a lot of man right there. The first movie wasn’t that great, but it was a fun night out, this looks more of the same to the power of ten.

Here is the trailer…..
