4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable movie to watch.., 20 Oct 2014
This review is from: Escape Plan (Amazon Instant Video)
Typical stallone and Shwarz movie... I enjoyed it!!!!

A professional 'break out of jail', tester of secure prisons, gets set up.. with a more 'secure' prison that's off the grid..

The plot was interesting, though done before, the scenes are 'staged' , yet thoroughly enjoyable.

3.0 out of 5 stars Special deal on batteries; half price!!!!!!, 11 Oct 2014
This review is from: The Watch (Amazon Instant Video)
Not as bad as the reviews; I watched it BECAUSE of the bad reviews!!!

The store boss, starts a neighbourhood watch group to 'catch' the guy that murdered his security watchman at the store.

The acting, not stellar, some scenes appear to be unscripted! ; not clever comedy, save for the Costco store 'going up' in flames. Some scenes are funny, and the movie cannot(and should not) be taken seriously. Hotshots movies are better and funnier to watch, that said, this is easily 'watchable', and easily 'not memorable'. Bad taste jokes centering around Aliens and 'crude' comedy.. I don't know how many times they mention their male appendages, but that's the only thing some actor men can adlib, when faced with no script..

The four main men do not really have 'on-screen chemistry', and what MIGHT have been interesting scenes, come across as bland, and characterless, Vince tends to raise his voice, as if to make up for the lack of this..

I laughed at some of the scenes, and, understanding that it was going to be a small 'cast', decided to carry on watching to see how they resolved it.

Not a film I would 'recommend', it's a forced storyline.. worth watching, no, but watchable and made me laugh in a few places....

3.0 out of 5 stars Confused 'teen' movie, that's funny in places..., 5 Oct 2014
Disney style crudeness... lame jokes, interestingly dumb plot, however character actors fit, and are kinda funny. It is an interesting movie and easy to watch, even though some of the 'jokes' are crude, and schoolboy tasteless.. it's a film you can imagine a group of teens have dreamed up.

It is Texas Jew' film, which makes the content all the more 'wrong'.. I can't say I would recommend it to anyone easily offended, or even say it's an 'okay' movie to watch. I have issues that it is morally wrong to promote this type of a movie with 'jew' cited in the title of the makers, and although the jokes, and sexual comments are 'wrong' in that respect, it is sooooo Disney, it would seem wrong to kick up a fuss about it.. unfortunately it has acceptance of anal sex references. But for these completely understated inappropriate references, it would have been an okay movie to recommend to families, but you can't. and it is so 'lame' that it comes across as a children's / teen movie.. so has lost its audience with the content.

A confused movie... that adults may find ok to watch ; it is funny in places.. just don't take it seriously..

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining & watchable, 4 Oct 2014
This review is from: They Wait (Amazon Instant Video)
Refreshingly simple and engaging.. it kept me watching. It is not a great cinematic movie, but you do feel for the characters involved, even though it is a simple movie.

A couple and their young son go home for a funeral, only to be interrupted by spirits that have not found rest, due to some foul play. The parent(s) then have to find a way to save their son or lose him forever. It centres mainly around a large work basement, and where bones are stored......which makes the scene choice a little limited and repetitive, however the female heroine, saves the day, by seeking guidance from an elderly Chinese 'guide'.

It was watchable, mainly entertaining, predictable scene swapping (one minute you see a ghost and the next its gone)and although repetitive, okay to watch, and is not really a horror movie, but more a walt Disney afternoon movie..

Entertaining & watchable

3.0 out of 5 stars Predictable & ok - if you aren't expecting much, 2 Oct 2014
This review is from: The Ward (Amazon Instant Video)
Predictable Psych Ward Drama; with a ghoul!!

It's ok to watch, however the 'ghoul' is somewhat horror dummy.. and laughable on occasion.. as if the only thing a 'ghoul' can do is 'growl' in fancy dress..

The scene shots are ok, typical one flew over the cuckoos nest setting, but without the great character actors, which is a shame. The Doc is kinda creepy, in a 'clean' disney style'.. the acting is not that great & as a result I think they missed a great opportunity to make it more realistic, instead of cardboard.. That said, it is watchable, and not too unpleasant.. which makes it an ok movie to watch .

*spoiler**
Watchable, but not 'great', interesting, but not brill.. with an ending that shows that all patients need is not ECT treatment, but to jump out a window and they are miraculously 'cured'.. happy ending for a movie horror.. predictable end shot.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nice, 28 Sep 2014
It's a nice if a little corny movie; for watching with the family...

Milo doesn't want to be born; he doesn't like the world and is scared.. and is encouraged to go & take a peek first... he still doesnt' want to go, that is until ...... (can't spoil the ending!!).

Worth a watch on a slow Sunday..

5.0 out of 5 stars Bravo.., 27 Sep 2014
Beautifully cast, well written, & elegantly filmed..

The characters, ebbing out of one family in the main, are so well cast they are riveting to watch, anxieties are heightened in the ebb and flow of life, where personal life dreams & wants come to the fore...inevitably leading to major life changes, yet so subtle & carried out with ease, none is treated as dramatic as it may have been, they are shown with a smattering of grace and comedic value.

Anthony Hopkins plays an elderly 'gent', desiring youth & longevity, not wanting to give in to aging, heads off for independent living, until he meets with a young lady... ..he seems oblivious to the fact he is running from his wife, only to return when his youthful new wife is caught cheating &he comes to face the reality that his 'dream' is no longer trustworthy and safe.. and the very thing he had wanted; is shallow.....This is but one of the relationships which are focused upon. All of them are a delightful gift waiting to be explored.. and this mixes and drifts in and out with the other relationships within the family and the other characters they meet as they are all connected, running through & joining the well constructed and worded script....

This film showcases a mix of a few whose lives are intertwined, and covers the relationships within what might have been a normal socially acceptable family, yet here they are, merging with the occult, ending marriages to run away with younger woman, and trying to 'be' more interesting people than they were originally - wanting happiness .. wanting to 'live', wanting 'more', wanting 'something'... , changing who they are, and their behaviour.. all are in 'need'.. as they cope with the longer term disappointments of their lives and seeking change, searching for that 'happiness'.. & it all appears to be thoroughly acceptable..

Bravo.. to a film well constructed, and filmed..

Classically entertaining, excellent acting, and casting, and a wonderful peak at a cascade of hope and dreams, and settling...

The scene setting is good, and the scenes quite beautifully timed, and so well acted that you want them to last forever... all the relationships are highly believable, the comedy tone cla

1.0 out of 5 stars Timed Out!!!!, 25 Sep 2014
This review is from: Wildflowers (Amazon Instant Video)
Watched about 20 minutes worth; and couldn't bare to watch it any longer.... I guess it is a movie you have to be in the mood for... For what its worth the first 20 minutes are as dull as dishwater, painful for the lack of sense in the plot (why doesn't she give Sabine the book back??? ).... and a little poetry whilst painting... where's this heading??? Who cares...
