The Dark Tower Movie Review

If this is tinsel town’s attempt to par down the series of eight books written by Stephen King into a more streamlined presentation, much is lost in transition. It is so thin on character development, that it is almost ghost like. If the intension was to create an on going movie franchise, it is a poor first salvo.   //   In the attempt to not overwhelm the viewer with detail, the filmmakers have relied too much on the audience being familiar with the book series by ...

Terminator 2: Judgment Day 3D Movie Review

. The film is filled with both technical flaws, like the motorcycle, young John Connor rides being a four stroke and the sound track blaring the sound of a two stroke (a completely different sounding machine) as well as lapses of logic (why not send the Terminator back earlier than modern day to stop the family line). It’s to the film credit that you just forget how preposterous the whole story line is and just enjoy the spectacle and humour. The humour is of special note as it just gets ...

Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets Movie Review

The film starts promisingly with a very clever introduction to its Galaxy wide leanings with a parade of ever more outlandish alien creatures. It brings to mind the Star Wars cafe scenes with all their variety of beings from outer space. The colour palette is also overwhelming, it’s like walking into a lolly shop with all of its over-saturated colours.   //   The film’s premise is pretty straight forward but that’s where the comfort of familiarity ends. The film ...

Despicable Me 3 Movie Review

Gru (Steve Carell) has settled into domestic bliss with Lucy (Kristen Wiig) and the girls but through circumstance has lost his job. That sting is eased by the discovery of a previously unknown brother Dru (Steve Carell doing double duty). The two unite and attempt to carry on with the family tradition. That tradition, being bad. Now that Gru is flying the straight and narrow, the humour resides in him being pulled back into a life of evil lite. Being almost unlimited in creating ...
