Cars 3 Movie Review

The use of the late actor’s sound bites from previous films is seamlessly integrated into the new edition. It shows a love and respect for that titan of the big screen that feels real. The film's message of dealing with the advancement of technology and feeling left behind by it is an interesting one given the context.   //   As always the animation looks fantastic and thankfully stays squarely in the animated world and resists the need to be photo realistic. It’s a ...

The Mummy Movie Review

The film is spectacular looking while not being that memorable in hindsight. It’s main thrust is action not character development but as an intro to the previous monster mayhem from many years ago, it remains to be seen if they can capture the charm of the originals. It was a simpler time back them and what was once frightening, now needs to be ramped up to make an impression with current audiences.   //   Next classic to get the reboot is suppose to be the Bride Of ...

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

In some ways, Captain Jack has his swagger back. It’s a silly return to the fun of the first film and doesn’t take itself too serious. Depp charts no new ground but his original idea of channeling Keith Richards and the cartoon skunk Pepe Le Pew still works well, so well in fact that his character has become ubiquitous. Pistol and Boo would be proud.   //   The cast this time features some fresh new faces, Australian actor Brenton Thwaites as son of Will, Henry ...

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword Movie Review

The casting is also spotty with Jude Law not quite inhabiting the role of the big evil, King Vortigern. He just doesn’t fill the role with near enough menace. Charlie Hunnam as Arthur also has moments where his glare reminds one too much of his definitive role as Jax Telller in Sons Of Anarchy. He is more successful as the alpha-male blonde wise cracking smart arse.   //   The film suffers from a too dark palette and the special effects seem to be missing that final ...
