Review: “In Dreams”

Some of the best films of the 90's have been serial killer films. From the completely faultless masterpiece that is "The Silence of the Lambs", through the dark twisting imagery of "Seven", to the slick writing and performances...

Review: “Supernova”

The film which nearly sent MGM bankrupt and has gone through so many edits it isn't funny has resulted in an average movie. In fact the first 40 minutes is quite entertaining as it sets up the characters and...

Review: “Elektra”

Just when you thought comic book adaptations had outlived their usefulness, along comes a film like "Elektra" to hammer that final nail into the coffin. Adapting a major comic hero like "Superman", "Batman", "Spider-Man", etc. is one thing because...

Review: “Coach Carter”

We've all seen this story many times before whether it be "Remember the Titans", "Dangerous Minds", "Varsity Blues", "Hoosiers", etc. Troubled kids in a dangerous neighbourhood find inspiration from a teacher with high morals and strong discipline. Along the...

Review: “Racing Stripes”

Ten years ago, the talking animal effects of "Babe" were eye opening. Today they're so old hat that no-one cares anymore, yet studios still spawn weaker and weaker clones with each passing year. Now comes "Racing Stripes", a tired...

Review: “Kangaroo Jack”

Some films you can tell from just the premise or a few seconds of footage that they're going to be shockers, and the majority of the time they're exactly as bad as you'd think. "Kangaroo Jack" was shot...

Review: “Just Married”

An awkward and woefully unfunny comedy, "Just Married" tries to grab laughs mostly out of people hitting each other in the nose more than anything else. The best comedies are the simple ones, and so 'Married' basically takes an...

Review: “Chasing Liberty”

Essentially a teen American redux of "Roman Holiday", the Mandy Moore rom-com is lacking both laughs and sincerity despite some likeable leads and picturesque locals. This first of two similarly-themed projects about the dating life of the President's daughter,...

Review: “Orange County”

Despite some good intentions and a decent coming-of-age story, 'Orange' is sadly bogged down by lacklustre jokes, poorly utilised celebrity cameos galore and decent if uninvolving leads.This is very much one of those ho-hum style comedies - there's nothing...

Review: “White Noise”

As effectively chilly as it is silly, "White Noise" is far from what you would call a smart or compelling thriller. Still, the whole point of these movies is to get you to jump in your seat a couple...

Review: “Impostor”

Originally to be one of three short films that composed the abandoned "Alien Love Triangle" project, "Impostor" was redone and reshot to add an extra hour or so of footage - and it shows. Coming off as a...

Review: “The Powerpuff Girls Movie”

The popular Cartoon Network show makes its debut at the cinema in fine form. Having never seen the show I was worried I'd be completely lost, however the creators have taken the smart choice of doing an origin...

Review: “Life or Something Like It”

'Life' proves pretty much what you'd expect. Despite a polished look and an amiable cast, the rather old-fashioned story can't help dragging up old cliches and unsurprising subplots along the way. What keeps this baby afloat is...

Review: “Murder by Numbers”

A surprisingly enjoyable if somewhat derivative and 'by the numbers' so to speak serial killer thriller, "Murder By Numbers" has enough good elements about it to keep it from being boring but still treads very familiar and well-worn ground....

Review: “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”

Great fun even if the appeal is somewhat more directed than usual, 'Wedding' is a mid-year delight that'll get a few (if not more) good chortles out of you thanks to its simple light-hearted story combined with an...
