By Clint Morris Hereâ€™s another film whose ostensibly been pocketed by â€˜Whereâ€™s Wallyâ€™ - because it, like its subjugator, blends in so well with the...
I believe the youth dancing culture that this film is geared toward will very much enjoy this movie.
You donâ€™t really need to bother with this one â€“ the extras are pretty much the same.
No more than something adequate to watch between commercial breaks.
Adam Frazier remembers Stan Winston, ponders a "Robocop" remake, and lays out some trivia
Kudos too to director Louis Letterier (''Transporter 2''), whose action-film skills really come in handy here. He's concocted his action scenes with flair and thought â€“ never serving up anything resembling padding. But Letterier also deserves praise for injection a lot of heart and human drama into his film â€“ something his earlier efforts have sorely lacked.
By Gareth Von Kallenbach It has been four years since Harold and Kumar embarked on their munchies induced quest for White Castle hamburgers. The...
By Davin Sgargetta Considering the seemingly ill-fated recent history of Australian Cinema, with a string of mediocre products in recent years, some might say that...
I donâ€™t want to go so far as to say that itâ€™s a good film, but I must admit, I enjoyed it. If you want an entertaining few laughs from a film and donâ€™t want to leave the cinema feeling cheated by a camp, far-fetched story, then give it a go.
By Clint Morris If thereâ€™s one thing you can say about Mark Neveldine and Brian Taylor, itâ€™s that theyâ€™re consistent. Their first film â€˜â€™Crankâ€™â€™ â€“...
One to catch on DVD, perhaps?
A â€˜dash of thisâ€™ and a â€˜dash of thatâ€™ usually works when cooking â€“ but not when making a Hollywood movie
Like most gag comedies, the filmmakers have thrown a lot of crap at a wall to see what would stick. More of it does than you expect, but only if you tone your expectations down accordingly. Of course, if you've paid money to see this, they were never too high anyway.
Letoâ€™s inspired performance is let down by a filmmakerâ€™s uninspired turn behind the megaphone and a hasty hand between the typewriter.
What should have been a gripping, keep-em-guessing political thriller with more star turns than the photo area on a red carpet is instead a rather run-of-the-mill action-thriller with no real memorable performances.
By Clint Morris This product may contain 'traces of nuts'. The one thing I've noticed about the Southland Shopping Center (in Melbourne, Australia) is that it's...
â€˜â€™Awakeâ€™â€™ is like a Transformer for two reasons â€“ firstly, thereâ€™s â€˜more than meets the eyeâ€™ going on within its controversial story, but more so, just when you begin to get comfortable with it as one thing it suddenly changes into something totally different.
By Guy Davis Despite what its title might lead you to believe, ''Jumper" is not the story of a warm, comfortable pullover. Okay, now that the...
Featuring terrific performances by Ryan Reynolds (I take it heâ€™s playing older here - - in real life he wouldâ€™ve still been in school in 1992) and Australiaâ€™s Isla Fisher (this girl is headed for the top, I tell ya!)
What saves â€œThe Bucket Listâ€ from being a film only your unfussy-Nana-who-hasnâ€™t-been-to-the-cinema-since-M*A*S*H would love is â€“ well, Jack and Morgan
By Adam Frazier Director James Gray (''The Yards'') has put together an impressive cast for his new cop drama, ''We Own the Night''. Mark Wahlberg...
â€œAugust Rushâ€ â€“ the latest in a long line of â€˜Why?â€™ efforts from the one-time king of comedy.
Burton & Depp re-teaming for "Dark Shadows", He-Man & Man-at-Arms re-teaming for "He-Man"!
Gellarâ€™s done a good job â€“ in fact, this might be her best work
A lot of work has gone into this puppy. Just a pity itâ€™s third-act didnâ€™t have a little more bark
I'm pleased to report that all played the game like it was 1980 again. Indy is back!
''Harry Potter'' had it. ''Star Wars'' had it. ''The Golden Compass'' tries hard to find it. With an impressive cast, some fun effects and an inventive story, all the elements are there. But the resulting mix, though often explosive, just doesn't have the fizz to make the grade.
In a breathtaking whirlwind of light and sound the â€˜60s Japanese anime, â€œSpeed Racer,â€ blasts onto the big screen with a distinctive flourish of energy only the Wachowski brothers can deliver.
â€œIron Manâ€ will be glad to know he isnâ€™t going to be a Comic Con attendeeâ€™s breakfast.
A toneless, unoriginal mess, it's symptomatic of the "throw money at a wall and see what sticks" of Australian movies ever since.
