Tonight I have been to see Unstoppable, a heart-racing thriller where two men must stop a runaway train before it causes untold destruction.   Starting his new railway job, fresh-faced Will (Chris Pine) doesn't get a warm welcome from the old-timers. But he's forced to work with veteran Frank (Denzel Washington) when disaster strikes in the form of a runaway train. Unmanned, carrying hazardous chemicals and gathering speed, it's a metal leviathan destroying everything in its path. "We're not just talking about a train," warns dispatcher Connie (Rosario Dawson), "we're talking about a missile - the size of the Chrysler building". As the train races towards a heavily populated area, Frank has a solution: "The only way to stop that kind of power is to grab it by the tail and pull it in the opposite direction..." But can he and Will put this daring plan into action in time to save a trainload of children heading straight for the unstoppable runaway?

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows PT 1

Tonight I have been to see Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows PT 1
No longer a boy, Harry draws ever closer to his ultimate battle in JK Rowling's epic fantasy.
Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Ron (Rupert Grint) and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort's immortality and destruction - the Horcruxes. Without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Dumbledore, the three friends must rely on one another more than ever. But Dark Forces in their midst threaten to tear them apart. Meanwhile, the wizarding world has become a dangerous place for all enemies of the Dark Lord. The long-feared war has begun and Voldemort's Death Eaters seize control of the Ministry of Magic and even Hogwarts, terrorising and arresting anyone who opposes them. But the one prize they still seek is the one most valuable to Voldemort - Harry Potter. The Death Eaters begin their hunt for Harry with orders to bring him to Voldemort - alive!

Let Me In

Last Tuesday I went to see Let Me In a  haunting and provocative vampire thriller with a difference from the acclaimed director of 'Cloverfield'
Owen (Kodie Smit-McPhee) is a lonely social outcast. Bullied and tormented at school, he spends the icy days plotting revenge on his tormentors and the bitterly cold evenings spying on his neighbours. However, he finds his life changes when Abby (Chloe Moretz), a self-assured 12-year old girl, moves in next door with her father. They become friends and form a deep bond. But as Abby appears only at night and is seemingly immune to the winter weather, Owen starts to realise that she isn't quite like other girls. As a series of gruesome murders occur in the town, Owen must face the reality that his friend may in fact be a vampire. Mixing adolescent angst with pulse-racing horror, 'Let Me In' is a note-perfect US remake of the acclaimed Swedish film  'Let the Right One In'
