Retro Movie Review – The Hitman’s Bodyguard

Jackson as the hitman tries his best to drop more F bombs than any of his other films and Reynolds delivers a Deadpool lite performance that shows how well he has a handle on comic timing. Salma Hayek, who has little screen time but nonetheless gives Jackson a run for his money in the profane stakes, plays the incarcerated wife of the hitman.   //   The story simplified to its core element is just a soon to be buddies road movie and almost all the characters are comic ...

Retro Movie Review – Jackass 3D

Just in time for the holidays, another round of my favourite form of regression therapy, the Jackass franchise and this time in the now almost obligatory 3D (for sequels at any rate). Now matter how much one simulates the facade of maturity, expose them to juvenile pranks such as this and the boy who laughs at the basest of humour comes out. It almost becomes secondary weather the material warrants it or not, it’s just plain fun to be this kind of kid again. As for the now included 3D ...

Retro Movie Review – Knight and Day

The comic elements of this film provide the viewer with the most entertainment and Cruise is at his best when he tones down his more strident nature on-screen. Cameron Diaz provides just the right amount of wide-eyed innocence to sell her side of the story and together they actually have a fair amount of chemistry.   //   The story, as is the case in most films of this type (a tale of spies and double crosses) is almost completely preposterous and that really just adds ...

Retro Movie Review – In The Loop

The film is predominantly dialogue based and a lot of the humour is quite quick so attention must be paid but it’s a hilarious world to enter. A place where everyone has their own agenda and is not afraid to do what ever they can to make things happen. Morality and virtue definitely take a backseat to self-serving and narcissistic behaviour.   //   The television show’s documentary style and handheld camera look is mostly kept intact as are the chances for the actors ...

Bill & Ted Face The Music Movie Review

First, it must be said that the initial appearance of Bill (Alex Winter) and Ted (Keanu Reeves) slightly jars the senses with how old they actually look but that soon plays into the film’s storyline. The movie years have not been kind to the duo and their successes and failures are laid out for all to see.   //   It’s their daughters this time out that actually become the heroes of the day and Billie (Brigette Lundy-Paine) and Thea (Samara Weaving) have engaging ...

An American ...
