    I saw Catching Fire and Spaceballs recently. Catching Fire was extremely well done, and since they had a better budget for it, it definitely outdid the original Hunger Games movie. Everyone here already knows Spaceballs. It wasn't really funny at all.

    There must be some, at least as far out as the distance of the Moon, which isn't hanging around the Earth because it likes the view.

    Based on what was available at the point when I reached the cinema, I watched Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues on Monday. Good and funny film, very entertaining.

    Not seen the first one.

    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

    A significant improvement on the first movie. Excellent performances and set pieces and it all moved along much better.
    Smaug himself was a marvellous piece of CGI, voiced with great gusto by Benedict Cumberbatch.

    I saw The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug it was ok but was a let down on the LOTR films. The effects were also odd. It made it look like a theatre/drama production in some scenes and a documentary in others. but I did enjoy it despite it being too long and weird effects

    Went to a free pre-release screening of Dallas Buyers Club.

    Not a subject matter that normally screams out to me, 1980s homophobic rodeo rider goes to hospital with some injury and is diagnosed with AIDS - at the time only referenced as a "gay plague", and told he has thirty days left.

    Someone who I strongly suspect was Matthew MacCon (I've no idea how to spell his name) naughey and Jennifer Garner. Impressive movie.

    Last film I saw at the cinema was.... 'RoboCop'.

    Pretty good actually! Not to be seen as a remake of the 1987 original, but a modern re-telling of the story. Great visuals, great acting and an exciting story. Not bad at all.

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    I think this is the best MCU movie after Avengers. It has an excellent supporting cast and a solid story with great visuals.

    This movie is pretty average I think. I felt very long, the story is widely known and although there are some differences much of it is still ridiculous. The acting is decent though and the visuals are not bad, the rock monsters are the most interesting and original thing brought to this version of the Bible story but they aren't around very long.

    I wouldn't advise paying to see this, it's a DVD or TV movie.

    I'd figured that. Reviews that I saw gave it two out of five stars. Sky Movies then..
