3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing, 15 Feb. 2012
As the run of great superhero movies continue, more and more are making their way into production. Green Lantern is one of the 'big' heroes that most have heard of but unfortunately, this movie is rather mediocre. The storytelling is quite lazy, with the plot moving at a bit of a slow pace at times. Peter Sarsgaard acts well as the villain Parralax but the character itself isn't very menacing and, well, kind of boring. Special effects are very good but it isn't anything new although Reynolds digitally added suit isn't as bad as I heard it was. Overall, this is worth a look for fans, but I found it to be one of the more boring movies based on comic properties. Low end rental. 2.5/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun way to pass the time, 15 Feb. 2012
This was a flop at the box office and although it is far from being a great film, it deserved more attention than it got. As far as the cast is concerned, Rachael Leigh Cook and Tara Reid aren't really known for their acting prowess, but they definately suited their roles here and were well cast. Rosario Dawson stands out as being the better actress and again, is well cast in her role. I wasn't keen on Alan Cummings as the bad guy, but he was ok and I have to admit, I thought the boyband, played by Donald Faison, Breckin Meyer and Seth Green was quite a funny, if overplayed, addition. If you want a movie to waste away a couple of hours without much thought, this is worth a look. 3/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Effects have held up well., 15 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Jumanji [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Back in 1995 Jumanji was one of the most successful movies of the year, thanks in part to the cast of Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, Bradley Pierce and Kirsten Dunst but mostly thanks to the groundbreaking special effects throughout the movie. Now, seventeen years later, the effects still hold up reasonably well and don't look as dated as one would expect, especially the scene in which animals run amock through the town's streets. The story is a lot of fun and one that will please all age groups, and the dialogue manages to avoid being cheesy. Great family film that comes recommended from me. 4/5

3.0 out of 5 stars No real spark, 15 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Just Married [DVD] [2003] (DVD)
Slightly below average comedy starring Ashton Kutcher and Brittany Murphy in which neither puts in very good performances and the chemistry between them is unfortunately lacking. The story is quite formulaic and there are enough laughs to keep your interest but there are better similar comedies available that are more worthy of your time. For fans of Kutcher/Murphy only. 2.5/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Meh, 15 Feb. 2012
Before I say anything it is worth noting that before going into this movie, although I knew who Captain America was, I knew nothing about the character or his 'story'. Viewing the movie as an 'outsider' it must be said that Marvel did a good job as always with making the movie accessible to those unfamiliar, building the development of Captain America/Steve Rogers quite well. Unfortunately though, I found this wasn't as enjoyable as previous Marvel movies, but not bad. The story was rather average and the effects seemed to be missing a spark. Chris Evans, whilst good, just didn't have the screen presence to pull the character off as well as someone else would've done. The supporting cast of Hayley Atwell, Tommy Lee Jones, Dominic Cooper and Hugo Weaving were fine but the best performance here is easily from Stanley Tucci. Although it isn't as good as other Marvel movies, it is still an enjoyable enough watch and I do look forward to seeing the character again in The Avengers. As is par for the course with Marvel movies, make sure you stay tuned until after the credits for an additional scene. 3/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting concept, 15 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Limitless [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
I was drawn to this movie because of its interesting concept of a drug, NZT, that empowers the brain to work to full capacity, allowing users to do incredible things such as learn an entire language in hours, learn trading patterns to make large amounts of cash, and make you more focused on achieving whatever it is you want to achieve. As typical with this sort of movie, there are quite a few plot holes and one thing I didn't understand was with a large part of the movie being about the dwindling supply Morra possesses, why didn't he use his increased intelligence to make more of the drug? Still, it is fun, includes some good set pieces, the dialogue and structure is polished and the cast, including the likes of Bradley Cooper, Robert De Niro, Anna Friel and Abbie Cornish, are capable. Recommended. 3.5/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Hit and miss but worth your attention, 15 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Rat Race [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Very very average comedy. Some characters are completely miss (Cuba Gooding Jr and Whoopi Goldberg+daughter), some are hit and miss (Seth Green+brother, Rowan Atkinson) and some are hilarious in every scene (Jon Lovitz+family, Breckin Meyer and Amy Smart). Unfortunately the misses slightly outweigh the hits. I couldn't decide on a favourite scene but I narrowed it down to the 3.
1 - Jon Lovitz and family stealing Hitler's car from the Barbie museum.
2 - When they say to John Cleese (the casino owner) that he can't just give away $2m in a random game, he says "Yes I can, I'm eccentric" and does this weirded out type of cat purr and nobody else shows any type of emotion.
3 - The whole of the last ten minutes. I love the ending to this.
Very very high end of rent it, almost recommended. 3/5

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun way to pass the time, 15 Feb. 2012
As Jackie Chan was having success at the box office with the Rush Hour movies and Sammo Hung was enjoying moderate success on TV with Martial Law, Chow Yun-Fat had entered Hollywood with a little less huzzah with The Corruptor and The Replacement Killers. After Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon became massive around the world, he once again became a target for Hollywood and was teamed up with Seann William Scott for Bulletproof Monk. The pair have a good rapore on screen and the plot, although weak, is acceptable enough for it not to detract from the good action choreography. The acting is a mixed bag with nothing particularly outstanding, but Victoria Smurfitt is best in a smallish, but important role and Mako a close second, though he is criminally underused. As with any action film, there is also some laughably bad acting, in this case it is from Marcus Jean Pirae as Mr Funktastic. If you're after a way to pass the time without needing to put any effort into following what it is you are watching, this is a good option. 3/5

4.0 out of 5 stars Charming, 15 Feb. 2012
It's hard to believe that fifteen years have already passed since the debut of the Austin Powers franchise, but its held up quite well. Mike Myers does numerous characters brilliantly and Elizabeth Hurley puts in one of her better performances (admittedly not exactly an achievement) as Vanessa Kensington. With a good supporting cast that includes Will Ferrell, Seth Green, Robert Wagner, Mimi Rogers and Michael York, this first Austin Powers is a fun comedy that manages to take the mick out of the 60's/70's spy movies and culture whilst still maintaining its own charm and quirky catchphrases. Filled with sexual innuendo, the dialogue is funny throughout and the timing of the lines is brilliant. My personal favourite scene is Seth Green's character Scott telling Dr Evil he should just get a gun and kill Austin Powers instead of putting him on a very slow moving platform with one inept guard that is easy to escape. Basil Expedition is probably my favourite character and is an excellent little nod to the Bond movies. Recommended. 3.5/5

5.0 out of 5 stars Stay behind the camera Tarantino!, 15 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Reservoir Dogs [DVD] [1993] (DVD)
Reservoir Dogs is a phenomenal way to start a career as a director, showcasing Tarantino's talent from the off. Here, he assembles a great cast including Michael Madsen, Chris Penn, Steve Buscemi and Harvey Keitel for a movie about a heist gone wrong because one of the robbers is in fact an undercover cop. It has all your typical Tarantino trademarks, from the well written dialogue (the scene about leaving tips) to the perfect selection of music (Stealers Wheel picked for 'that' scene). If you're a fan of Tarantino's movies, then no doubt you already own this, but if not, it's a must-own. The only thing that annoys me is the fact Tarantino cast himself (albeit in a more minor role), and whilst he is one of the best directors ever, his acting leaves a lot to be desired. 4.5/5
