The Raid Redemption
It's been a while since I enjoyed either an action movie or a martial arts movie as much as I enjoyed this one.  Lone(ish) cop tries to stay alive in a tower block full of violent criminals isn't the miost original concept but just like it's erstwhile and obvious forebear it's a whole lot of fun to watch.

Rammbock (Siege of the Dead)
A german zombie film made on a shoestring budget that is eminently watchable.  The acting on the most part is pretty primitive and some of the characterisation is decidedly odd.  There's a real sense of purpose hear though.  The film-makers really want to make something out of their limited means and for me at least they really succeeded.

REC
The slowest of slow starts transforms into one of the most wonderfully visceral scary movies I've seen in a good long while.  Made for the Spanish equivalent of the price of three packs of Tic-Tacs and a Pot Noodle, it's a blood-thirstily, blood-curdling zombie(ish) splatter-fest.  The only thing I struggled with is the whole single camera thing which is getting a bit old now (and was never that great an idea to start with) but don't let that put you off because this thing is fabulous.

REC3
This is a dead concept now.  The first was astounding, the second was poor, this one was just piffle.

Red Dawn (the new one. The one with that guy who was Thor in it)
The only way I could have felt any dirtier after this is if I'd watched it whilst sat in a bath of poop.
America, FUCK YEAH!

Run Fat Boy Run
Unoriginal, unfunny and unwatchable.
