UK Weekly Top 10 Movies!

Week ending 10th February 2013

By Kirkiechick

 

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

8. Hitchcock, £606,817 (New)

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!

Wednesday Whimsy

Wednesday WhimsyBy: Caelrona

Hiya all! Another week, another blog post. It’s Wednesday again, and so here I am to bring you a dash of geek. This past weekend I went to see the new release Warm Bodies in theaters with a couple of friends. My popcorn was amazing, because we went to a theater with the flavored pop-corn salt thingies, and the movie was pretty good too. I mean, it’s nothing I’m super excited about, but it wasn’t bad at all, it just wasn’t as good as, say, Zombieland. It just had too much chick-flick in it to be something that I could really love. But anyway, I would hate to ruin it for those of you who have yet to watch it, so instead of telling you about it I thought I’d instead use it for inspiration. Between it and the new episodes of The Walking Dead airing this coming Sunday, I’m in a zombie mood. So here we have my Top 5 Worst Zombie Types.

02-06-13WW1

Number 5: Suiciders from Dead Island

These zombies are gross. The game booklet describes them thusly; “This poor creature trapped in a disfigured, pulsing form retains a semblance of awareness even though its instincts drive it to get close to an uninfected survivor and attack with a self-destructive explosion. Fighting suiciders in a confined space is or from close range is… suicidal.” So yeah, they are big, walking pustules of infection waiting to explode themselves to kill you, and if you survive the explosion you’ll be covered in their nasty infectious puss. Gross. Also they attempt to garner your sympathy by uttering a creepy ‘Help Me’ when ever you come near them. No thanks!

02-06-13WW2

Number 4: Rage Virus Zombies from 28 Day/Weeks Later

Zombies that can run? Screw that shit! If the zombie apocalypse ever happens then I want the dumb, slow, dead kind. I do not want running live ones!

02-06-13WW3

Number 3: Bonies from Warm Bodies

Now, I don’t want to ruin the movie for those of you who haven’t seen it, so I’ll keep this short. They are zombies that have peeled all their flesh off. That’s right. Skeleton zombies. Creepy as fuck. Oh, and they can run.

02-06-13WW4

Number 2: Mutations from Resident Evil

In basically every Resident Evil there are always weird mutated zombie-things. From the wall-crawling Lickers that bite Rain Ocampo in the very first Resident Evil movie, to the huge, muscled Axeman that Alice fights in the shower room of the prison in the 4th Resident Evil movie, to the tunnel-digging Majini also from the 4th movie. I dislike them intensely. Mainly because of their creepy factor, but also I just dislike the entire premise of them. While they have backstory and purpose in the games, they really just make very little sense at all in the movies.

 

02-06-13WW5Number 1: Reavers from Serenity/Firefly

The Reavers from Serenity/Firefly aren’t actually zombies, I know. But they’re cannibalistic, and kill everything so it is close enough for me have always kind of considered them as sort of zombies. Anyway, one thing is for certain; I absolutely, positively do not want able-bodied, running zombies who can think and use weapons and technology. That would be horrible.

 

There we have it! My Top 5 Worst Zombie Types. Of course there are individual zombies I dislike intensely, these types are my least favorite. Well, I should rephrase that. I enjoy watching them; they would be my least favorite kinds to have to deal with. but anyway,  all this talk of zombies has given me some cravings… No, not for human brains. For a zombie movie marathon! Or a zombie tv-show marathon… ooh, now I’m even more excited for the new episodes of the Walking Dead! I suppose I will survive the few days we have until the first one airs. Hopefully ya’ll can too!

Until next time,

Movie of the Month: Febuary 2013

By Hmsbeefnuts and Geeky Gem

Wreck-it-ralph_img

Hello and welcome to my choice of February’s Movie of the Month. This month it is the quite simply fantastic looking Wreck It Ralph. A host of Video Game cameos, and what looks like a whole lot of fun. Hopefully I am proved right, I have been looking forward to this film for some time. Check out the trailer below…

Well I have to admit that does look good doesn’t which made my pick even harder. There are some good movies out this month and I have to say I am finding this a hard pick. So I think I going to go with this Zombie movie starring Nicholas Hoult, Teresa Palmer and John Malkovich. I am of course talking about Warm Bodies.

wb

This a movie about a zombie who becomes involved with the girlfriend of one of his victims. It is with this that their romance sets in motion a sequence of events that might transform the entire lifeless world. I have to admit I knew very little about this movie before seeing the trailer bu the second I did I thought I wouldn’t mind watching that so my pick for this month is in fact Warm Bodies. As always here is the trailer for you all to enjoy.

Hiya all! It is Wednesday yet again, so you know what that means! I have taken a break from my video games to bring you another blog post. Now, I know that it is already the 23rd of January, so I’m a little late getting started on this, but I was recently looking at films that are going to be coming out this year. I gotta say, some of them have me pretty dang excited, so I thought I’d share them with you. Now, there are a lot of films coming out, and I’m pretty excited about a lot of them (I think 13 of them, at last count?) so I think I will probably limit this to a quick Top 5, as to not take up too much of your day. Anyway, let’s get started!

01-23-13WW1

Warm Bodies

Warm Bodies comes out February 1st, and I am super excited to see it. I’ve made my love of zombies known in previous blogs, but just in case you missed it; I freakin’ love zombies. Trailers of this have been showing on TV for a while, and they look really awesome. This is one movie I might actually drive the hour and a half to the nearest theater to watch on the big screen, because holy cow; ZOMBIES.

01-23-13WW2

The Host

The Host comes out March 29, and I’m fairly interested. I read this book when it first came out and it is a pretty good book in my opinion. If you haven’t read it, then I would suggest giving it a go, because despite being from the same author as Twilight, it’s actually decent. I have a rule about watching films to which I’ve read the book for, because usually the films are total crap compared to the books (there are notable exceptions to this rule,) so I am still on the fence about whether or not I will watch this, but I will be keeping my eye on it for sure.

01-23-13WW3

Fast and Furious 6

Fast and Furious 6 comes out May 24th, and I’m really looking forward to it. I know they might not seem like my type of movies, but I have always had a soft spot for the Fast and Furious movies. I like Vin Diesel in most things he plays in (in fact I can’t think of anything I don’t like him in,) and I am super excited to see Michelle Rodriguez back as Letty. I have a soft spot for Michelle Rodriguez, because she is so damn bad ass in everything, and almost always dies.

01-23-13WW4

World War Z

World War Z comes out June 21st, and I am super excited about it. I believe I may have mentioned my love of zombies before? Yeah? Ok, good. So aside from zombies, there is another reason I want to see this movie; I’ve read the book. Normally that would mean this movie would get crossed off of the list, due to that little rule of mine. However it looks like (from descriptions released to websites like IMDB) this movie is going to be a ‘loosely based on’ type of movie, so I am going to just enjoy it as a separate entity.

01-23-13WW5

Riddick 3

Riddick comes out September 6th, and this is yet another movie I am super excited about. I loved both Pitch Black and The Chronicles of Riddick, and I’ve been waiting for another Riddick movie since then. I cannot wait to see what this movie brings to the Riddick storyline. This one might actually pull me to a theatre as well.

01-23-13WW6

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug comes out December 13th, and like everyone else in the whole bloody world I am so excited to see it. The Hobbit, along with each of the Lord of the Rings books, are among the very few that I’ve broken my Book-or-Movie rule for and I have yet to be disappointed. The movies have all been epic, and I expect nothing less from this one!

 

Ok.. So it ended up being a Top 6. Sorry about that; I completely forgot about Riddick, and I just couldn’t push any others off of my list, so… Top 5 and a Bonus? Maybe? Obviously there are a lot of other movies coming out that I am super excited about as well. Just to name a few we have Thor: The Dark World, Star Trek: Into Darkness,The Seventh Son and The Wolverine. I don’t know about ya’ll, but I know that I am definitely going to be watching the movie releases this year a bit more sharply than I usually do, because there are some pretty awesome things coming out this year.

Until next time,
