Charlie and Boots was a reasonable little roadtrip comedy. Not too in your face, had a reasonable script and acting.

Terminator: Salvation - they killed Sarah Connor Chronicles for this?! WTF?! Seriously, WTF?! Would have been a better film if the main twist hadn't been placed squarely in every single trailer I saw, but still not that good. The ending doesn't work on multiple levels and even if they'd kept the original 'good Terminator kills everyone including John Connor in the last two minutes' ending, it still wouldn't have been good or interesting.

Action in the North Atlantic - good little war movie, set on a cargo supply ship.

Kingdom of Heaven - Quite good.

War Wolves & The Other Side were almost the right sort of crappy, but not quite. Both have inspired moments, but mostly they are a little less than you'd hope for.

Iron Man 2 was fun. No more, no less.

Sin City - is was nice the see the opening ten minutes at last. Great little flick, and true to the comics.

300 - Good, like how stylised the visuals were, though quickly got over the murky brown sheen.
