Hancock
Some laughs...not many.
Some nice effects...not enough.
Some good set-pieces...too few and way too far apart.
Unfortunately these are all in the first half. The second half is complete nonsense.
I watched it whilst laid up with a stinking cold.
It did it's job...just.

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 2
A terrible end to the series.  The director has managed to squeeze every bit of tension, humour, pathos and excitement that was in the book out of the movie.  I thought the final book was a real achievement that beautifully tied up all the threads throughout the series and allowed Harry to become the, very human, hero he needed to be.  This was just a series of set pieces that allowed no emotional connection whatsoever.  Dreadful.

Hell Ride
Tarrantino produced Hells Angels movie that with the exception of Vinnie Jones is well worth a watch.  It's done on the cheap and is another attempt at the Grindhouse audience.  It's better than his Death Proof - which is a very watchable film - and manages to be entertaining throughout it's rollercoaster runtime.

Hitman
Bald guy with a bar code tattooed onto the back of his head travels the world killing people. Not exactly incognito and not exactly any good.

The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey
Did I ever tell you about the time we...?
Do you know about...?
Have you heard...?
How to make a short kids book into a 6 hour, 3 movie epic.  Flashbacks and protracted fight scenes with liberally sprinkled with extra flashbacks.
It was a pretty looking and enjoyable sort of romp though.

Hobo With a Shotgun
Rutger Hauer marking a serious career low by playing a vengeful and heavily armed homeless person.  Lot's a OTT blood 'n' guts 'n' gore and not much else.

The Horde
French zombie movie in which a group of revenge bent cops get trapped with the gang their hunting in a run-down tower block during a zombie outbreak.  It's a very violent attempt to genre mash and it's not entirely successful but it is pretty well made and kept me watching to the end.

The Hunger Games
Do yourself a really big favour and go and watch Battle Royale instead (but whatever you do don't watch Battle Royale 2).
