The Secret Life of Walter Mitty [DVD] <b>DVD</b> ~ Ben Stiller
This remake of the Danny Kaye 1947 classic is Joy!

Ben Stiller has, over time, pigeonholed himself as "everyman", and appeared in many films full of fart jokes,toilet humour and over the top ridiculous characters. His innate talent was often buried in slapstick humour and I was expecting more of the same. How wrong was I. Mitty is seriously good.

Mitty is not only a film about unrequited love and dreams, but also the little man who somehow always seems to get the sharp end of the stick. The man who is of good character, good at his job, good to his family, but somehow misses out on the good things in life because of his lack of confidence and general fear of… Read more

3.0 out of 5 stars More of the same!!, 13 April 2014
An Unexpected Party was poor. Desolation is worse.

The middle film was always going to be difficult, even with enough source material, however as trilogy is already paper thin, and is little more than a filler to get us to part three, it's a real disappointment.

Just like Party, our time with these incompetent dwarves just proves what a useless bunch they are. Thorin Oakenshield leads his party from one avoidable disaster to another with boring regularity and must easily rank as the… Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars So bad its good, 9 April 2014
I'm just going to say it, this game is just another Alien title that will eventually be forgotten to the sands of time.
But having said that it's still a time of fun. The Alien AI is superb, they are capable of hidi g from you perfectly and jumping from wall to ceiling and moving flawlessly. Almost like watching a film, and almost like fighting a real Alien with actual intelligence.
Partly plating this game was just for nostalgia, I loved the Alien films as my review of them will show, and I couldn't resist to pass up the opportunity to explore the worlds myself, even if only in video game format.
The game just makes you play, its up to you to find the references, the… Read more
