    Cobain: about a son 2/10: it was a bunch of interviews over some stock footage. An hour 40 of it. At least I assume as I fell asleep. A monkey could have made that movie.

    District B13 - 7.5/10

    Really awesome action movie. Parkour mixed with fighting. The story is decent, too. I didn't know there were any French movies like this really.

    Edit: And apparently the lead actor invented parkour! lol. That's nuts. I can believe it, though.

    And he looks almost exactly like Ted Mosby from How I Met Your Mother. It's amazing.

    Wait, how could that be? Parkour's history begins in France during the First World War with Georges Hébert.

    Well to be honest, David Belle himself said he learnt the training and way of life from his dad I believe so I used the words 'founded parkour' very lightly, in my head it's synonymous with David Belle made parkour mainstream along with co-founder Sébastien Foucan (the guy that does Parkour at the start of Casino Royale I believe).

    Brave (6.5/10)

    Saw it in 3D with Dolby ATMOS (couldn't really tell the difference in sound really, it was pretty subtle) Anyway it was an alright movie, miles better than Cars 2 but overall it didn't feel like a Pixar movie, more like a Dreamworks one. The story wasn't as original and fresh as the great Pixar movies. I was very impressed with how good her hair looks though haha.

    Equilibrium - 6/10

    Equilibrium is flawed, pretentious, and self-indulgent. Kurt Wimmer (Directer/writer) attempts to convince the audience into believing that the film is much more than what it really is. In actuality, the premise is just an excuse to show off a flurry of exaggerated, overblown, and laughable action scenes. Christian Bale was solid in his role as John Preston, while Sean Bean was once again under-utilized in his role. Shame. In fact, the best scene in the entire film would have to be the confrontation between Christian Bale and Sean Bean.

    Boys don't cry 7/10: I thought I was gonna like it more but it took a while for it to get going. It's a true story about a girl to boy transsexual who gets murdered. It gets pretty good about half way through but I barely got there.
