Megashare Final Destination 5 (2011)
Survivors of a suspension-bridge collapse learn there's no way you can cheat Death. This film was brilliant, the storyline didn't seem to have any plot holes in it and the deaths were more gruesome than ever! Certainly A Lot darker and serious than some of the previous ones! And the Special and visual effects were brilliant, I wasn't expecting much considering the last film had rather cartoon like effects and a terrible storyline but I was very pleasantly surprised the acting was considerably better as well, and The ending, well it was brilliant I mean everyone's been saying how good it was and how they didn't see it coming, well it really was but also when you hear about it all over the internet you kinda work it out :L But still! It's the best of them all! if there is to be another one then Steven Quale must direct!? I mean finally a change of director and someone with fresh ideas!!! the endings have all been the same for all the other films! It gets boring, but this certainly gives the final destination franchise a better name! this films had me on the literal edge of my seat, Where you think something's going to happen... then...... no..... wait...... Yes! it's so intensely gripping and a cool must see film!
Director: Steven Quale
Cast: Nicholas D'Agosto, Emma Bell and Arlen Escarpeta
Megashare Despicable Me (2010)
Despicable Me, the new animated from produced by Chris Melandandri, who also produced Ice Age: The Meltdown and Horton Hears A Who, is one of the summer's stand out movies. Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Miranda Cosgrove, and Russell Brand are perfect actors to lead this at times hilarious, at times tear jerking animated tale. Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Danny R. McBride, Julie Andrews and Jermain Clement make for a worthy supporting cast. Gru (voiced by Carell) is a evil genius who only wants to win the affection of his cold-hearted mother (voiced by Andrews), something he has NEVER had. His only friends are Dr. Nefario, a aging scientist (voiced by Brand), and his army of minions (voiced by directors Peiere Coffin and Chris Reneud, and Jermain Clement), Twinky like creatures with both one and two eyes, it varies. When a mysterious newcomer named Vector (voiced by Segal) steals the Great Pyrimid of Giza, Gru decides to pull off the greatest heist EVER: stealing the moon! Then, three orphan girls, Margo (voiced by Cosgrove), Edith, and Agnes (both voiced by newcomers who names I don't know.) The three of them don't hit it off with Gru instantly, but they see him as the first real parent they've ever had. Gru slowly begins to warm up to the girls, and they're interactions make for some truly heartfelt, and also hilarious moments. Case in point: Edith: Are these beds old bombs? Gru: Yes. But, they are very old and highly unlikely to blow up. Try not to toss and turn. Despicable Me pulls off something almost unheard of: a film that is enjoyable for both parents and children that does NOT involve humor centered around bodily functions, or violence. Final grade: A Plus infinite number of times!
Director: Pierre Coffin, Chris Renaud
Cast: Steve Carell, Jason Segel and Russell Brand

Megashare Unknown (2011)
A man awakens from a coma, only to discover that someone has taken on his identity and that no one, (not even his wife), believes him. With the help of a young woman, he sets out to prove who he is. Good movie. The plot seemed similar to Arnold Schwarzenegger's 1990 science - fiction action movie, Total Recall. If you were to change sci-fi action thriller to foreign intrigued mystery action thriller, change locations, Mars to Berlin, change Ronny Cox to Frank Langella, change free oxygen for all on Mars to lower cost corn development on Earth and change revolutionary hero, Quato to revolutionary scientist, Dr. Bessler. Total Recall was made nearly 20 years ago, many people may never have seen it or forgot about it. Retelling a story in Hollywood is nothing new in order to gain a contemporary audience. Maybe I'm wrong about the similarities, yet on it's own, Unknown is a very good action movie thriller and Liam Neeson has successfully step into action adventure characters with vengeance.
Director: Jaume Collet-Serra
Cast: Liam Neeson, Diane Kruger and January Jones
Megashare Warrior (2011)
The youngest son (Hardy) of an alcoholic former boxer (Nolte) returns home, where he's trained by his father for competition in a mixed martial arts tournament -- a path that puts the fighter on a collision corner with his older brother (Edgerton). Review: As a teenager, I'm definitely inexperienced in the world of MMA. But this movie is not about MMA, and that is set very clear from the start. Right from the start of the 2 minute trailer. So naturally I was ecstatic to take my seat in the theater. Tom Hardy (Tommy Conlon) delivers a moving and emotional performance of a man who has suffered greatly from the ones he loves, and from the field of battle, an all to real reality for people of today. While the younger Tommy suffered the loss of his mother firsthand, his older brother Brendan (Joel Edgerton)has put together a life that a man dreams of, yet is still haunted daily by his past. Only to have it threatened to be destroyed by the bank. Nick Nolte the alcoholic father of the two, has suffered years of remorse and regret from the abuse of alcohol and the neglect of his wife and children is trying to forge a bond but is meeting a stone wall with both of his sons. The fighting, though it is very well acted and shot, is not about fighting. It is the physical representation of the struggle between the three men, the struggle to forget and forgive and to move on. The demons that possess all three of these men are of such great proportion, the only way they can be relinquished is for them to come together. It hits home on such a high level on so many different subjects, that you will be floored into your seat as the credits roll in. An ABSOLUTE MUST SEE :)
Director: Gavin O'Connor
Cast: Tom Hardy, Nick Nolte and Joel Edgerton
Megashare Hugo (2011)
"The Invention of Hugo Cabret" concerns a 12-year-old orphan who lives in the walls of a Paris train station in 1930 and a mystery involving the boy, his late father and a robot. Review: From the very first minute, this film is breathtakingly beautiful and amazing. The art, cinematography, lighting, acting, story, direction, are all amazing. This film should be given multiple Academy Awards, especially for Best Director (Scorsese), Best Actor (Asa Butterfield), Best Actress (Chloe Moretz), Best Supporting Actors (Ben Kingsley & Sacha Baron Cohen) and Cinematography. The casting was superb, all actors were very believable, I loved everyone of them, kudos to Martin Scorsese for bringing out the best in the cast. The only criticism I can put forth, is that it is a little slow for children, my 11 year old son got a little fidgety at times, but still loved the movie in the end. "Hugo" is a masterpiece, a true work of art in film.
Director: Martin Scorsese
Cast: Asa Butterfield, ChloŽ Grace Moretz and Christopher Lee
Megashare Drive (2011)
A Hollywood stunt performer who moonlights as a wheelman discovers that a contract has been put on him after a heist gone wrong. User Review: You might hear one comparing this to a Tarantino film, but leave all worries at the door, this is an absorbing and tremendously unique piece of cinema from Danish director Nicolas Winding Refn. The reason it works so exquisitely well is because the film grabs hold of you and takes you inside this often dark and dream-like LA setting. So, when the end of the film hits, you feel apart of this film, and it's there to stay. This film also offers a Ryan Gosling like you've never seen him, speaking only when necessary, with tension and fury in his eyes. He's silent, caring, and ridiculously tough. Every line is delivered perfectly and every gesture is natural. I saw this at the LA Film Festival on a mammoth screen with booming speakers. The music only makes this film more unique. It is catchy and synchronized perfectly with the TRULY beautiful cinematography. This film is the BEST of its genre. I honestly cannot compare it to any other film, for it is truly that different. "Drive" is already the best of the year, because I'm POSITIVE no other film will haunt and invade me quite like this film has. This is not just a classic for its genre, but a beautiful and bold classic in general.
Director: Nicolas Winding Refn
Cast: Ryan Gosling, Carey Mulligan and Bryan Cranston

Megashare Captain America: The First Avenger (2011)
After being deemed unfit for military service, Steve Rogers volunteers for a top secret research project that turns him into Captain America, a superhero dedicated to defending America's ideals. Easily fulfilled and then exceeded all expectations. Can't wait for Avengers! Who would've thought years ago that ALL Marvel based films would rule the summer?!? Without question, Thor, X-Men First Class and now Captain America were/are the best movies of the summer. Nothing else has come close. If this summer movie season where the Olympics, I'd say Cap took the gold. First Class grabbed the silver and Thor finished fractions out of first with the bronze. Pirates, Hangover 2, Super 8 and Transformers finished out of the money and Green Lantern came up lame and didn't even finish the race. It's been a great summer. Everyone might as well label it correctlyÖ a MARVELous summer! I just loved Captain America. I thought it was smart and the impressive cast really delivered! This movie works on so many levels and makes you draw on just about all of your emotions. I don't remember when I enjoyed a movie this much!
Director: Joe Johnston
Cast: Chris Evans, Hugo Weaving and Samuel L. Jackson
Megashare Black Swan (2010)

When artistic director Thomas Leroy (Cassel) decides to replace prima ballerina Beth MacIntyre (Ryder) for the opening production of their new season, Swan Lake, Nina is his first choice. But Nina has competition: a new dancer, Lily (Kunis), who impresses Leroy as well. Swan Lake requires a dancer who can play both the White Swan with innocence and grace, and the Black Swan, who represents guile and sensuality. Nina fits the White Swan role perfectly but Lily is the personification of the Black Swan. As the two young dancers expand their rivalry into a twisted friendship, Nina begins to get more in touch with her dark side - a recklessness that threatens to destroy her

Cast: Natalie Portman, Mila Kunis and Vincent Cassel

Megashare The Inbetweeners Movie (2011)
Four socially troubled 18-year-olds from the south of England go on holiday to Malia. Review: If you are a fan of the inbetweeners series, this movie will not disappoint you, it's 'brilliant'. Simon Bird, James Buckley, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas are the four cheeky teenage actors in this film. Simon Bird who plays the character of 'Will' begins the film with narrating about his life so far and talks to his dad about going on holiday with his three best friends, Simon, Neil, and of course, Jay. The four boys end up going on holiday and let's just say, have an adventurous time. Personally, i think this is one of the most hilarious films i have ever seen. I've watched every episode of the inbetweeners TV series, and couldn't wait until the film was released. I laughed the whole way through this film, i was quite nervous about it not being as good as i was expecting, but it didn't disappoint me. This is probably the best film i've seen, i went to see it twice at the cinema, it was that good. The whole audience were in stitches, from the beginning of the film, until the end. It was good to see other people enjoying it and laughing along. As the movie was the 'end' to the Inbetweeners, it really couldn't of been any better. The same characters were used, and the storyline was well thought out. I'll miss the comedy and the characters of this series; hopefully in years to come, they'll be a second film. I give this movie a thumbs up. 10/10.
Director: Ben Palmer
Cast: James Buckley, Blake Harrison and Joe Thomas

Megashare Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows (2011)
Sherlock Holmes (Robert Downey, Jr.) and his longtime trusted associate, Doctor Watson (Jude Law), take on their arch-nemesis, Professor Moriarty (Jared Harris), with the help of Holmes's older brother Mycroft Holmes (Stephen Fry) and a gypsy named Sim (Noomi Rapace). Review: This movie was absolutely fantastic. I have been waiting for it for what feels like forever now and it truly did not disappoint. The storyline was clever, the dynamic between Watson and Holmes was charming and beautiful, and the effects were incredible. Honestly, as much of a fan I am of the first movie, its sequel surpassed it and my overall expectation. Some the effects were unnecessary at times, but I really enjoy the style in which these movies are edited. It can be slightly confusing periodically, another reason to rewatch, still pay attention closely. Jude Law and Robert Downey Jr.'s chemistry was compelling and the supporting actors were on par. I laughed, I nearly screamed, and I even cried. Game of Shadows is gripping, exciting, hilarious,and even draws tears. You'll be cheering throughout and satisfied with the end. Too be honest, it is absolutely one of the best movies of this year.
Director: Guy Ritchie
Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Jude Law and Jared Harris

Megashare Easy A (2010)
After a little white lie about losing her virginity gets out, a clean cut high school girl sees her life paralleling Hester Prynne's in "The Scarlet Letter," which she is currently studying in school - until she decides to use the rumor mill to advance her social and financial standing. I attended a free preview of this movie and without having done any research on the movie and just based on a short synopsis, had pretty low expectations walking into the cinema. It's always great coming out of a cinema being pleasantly surprised by an enjoyable movie and that's exactly what happened! I've always been a fan of fast witty dialogue and this movie definitely delivers! Virtually every character in the movie whether minor or major seems to have something funny to say, and while there wasn't a lot of ROFL moments, there were quite a few LOL's throughout the movie! To me, it's one of those movies perfect for a Friday night to unwind from work without having to use too many brain cells (but enough so that you don't walk out of there thinking you'd wasted your time and intellect!) - it's one of those movies that i'll definitely be purchasing on DVD when it comes out!!
Director: Will Gluck
Cast: Emma Stone, Amanda Bynes and Penn Badgley
Megashare Contraband (2012)
