The return to form for Guy Ritchie

Well, close

The best thing about Rock’n’rolla is the music

The soundtrack is just plain awesome

Gerard Butler is excellent, and it’s always nice to hear his natural accent

Thandie Newton was a bit of a non event

The plot was ok

The lines weren’t as whitty, the characters weren’t as engaging

But it was a good night out, none-the-less

Tropic Thunder

Finally, a film that lived up to my expectations

It was everything I wanted the film to be

Clever script, witty dialogue and awesome cameos

Ben Stiller wasn’t too stupid (though I could have done without the Simple Jack storyline)

And Jay Baruchel had a great role, what a great opportunity

He was so cute in Undeclared and had a little role in Knocked Up

But he’s really grown up and come in to his own, as they say.

Not a bad looking fellow these days 🙂 He’s certainly grown out of his geeky phase

Tom Cruise was absolutely hilarious as the bastard Jewish film exec

Steve Coogan, left me speechless (I’m not going to spoil that one for you)

The best part is the false trailers at the start of the film which introduce each of the actors

I would happily have paid to see Satan’s Alley with Robert Downey Jr. (3 time Oscar winner) and Tobey Maguire (MTV best kiss winner)

Robert Downey Jr. completely steals the film with his Australian ‘Russell Crow-esque’ character who undergoes cosmetic surgery for his film role to become and African American
