G Force

July 26th, 2009

 G Force is the latest Disney offering where the G stands for Guinea Pigs – three to be exact Juarez  (Penélope Cruz), Bucky  (Steve Buscemi) and the scene stealing Blaster (Tracy Morgan) with one more named Hurley (Jon Favreau) to be added later. In a 3-D mix of CGI rodents and live actors, they’ve been assembled by scientists Ben (Zach Galifianakis) and Marcie (Kelli Garner) as a crack cove ...

Orphan, not to be confused with he chilling 2007 offering The Orphanage, is laughably predictable. This was clearly fortified by the audience laughter experienced while watching this well constructed string of clichés. In a strong performance Vera Farmiga is Kate Coleman a fragile recovering alcoholic who feels the need to fill the void left by a still born child even with two subsequent well ...

The Ugly Truth

July 26th, 2009

The Ugly Truth has heavily promoted its dazzling stars Katherine Heigl and Gerard Butler. Although Butler’s biggest money maker is as the lead six pack in 300, lately he’s really shown his chops doing comedy both edgy and romantic. Here he’s kind of both as Mike, a TV host with a complete lack of a feminine side who does a salty cable men’s advice show in the nose bleed section of the broadca ...

500 Days of Summer

July 26th, 2009

500 Days of Summer - the name would imply about a year and a half in a tropical destination. Actually it refers to all of the days of a relationship between Summer Finn (the captivating Zooey Deschanel) and Tom Hansen (Joseph Gordon-Levitt – seen last year as a literal loose cannon in the Canadian thriller Kill Shot and formerly Tommy from 3rd Rock now all grown up and stretching his acting w ...

Waterlife is a bit of a misnomer since it documents the mortification of 20 per cent of the world’s fresh water, a large part of which rests in Canada. Using CSI-like graphics the producers outline a criminal juggernaut of desecration of The Great Lakes. Belugas in the St Lawrence are getting cancer at an alarming rate and the reason starts in Lake Superior where the Edmund Fitzgerald is a sm ...

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

July 19th, 2009

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince doesn’t do much half way but even clocking in at just under two and a half hours it’s still impossible to completely detail the brilliant plotting outlined in the book by J.K. Rowling. However it does deliver gloriously the gist of this sixth voluminous tome in the Potter series. Here the three Hogwarts buds - Harry (Daniel Radcliffe), Hermione Granger ( ...


July 9th, 2009

Bruno as fans (or victims) of Da Ali G Show know is the fictitious Austrian host of the most popular TV fashion show in a German speaking country that is not Germany. Like Borat and Ali G, Bruno is evil spawn from the fertile mind of Sacha Baron Cohen who has turned outrageously unacceptable behaviour into an art form that is universally embraced. He takes outrageous to a new level here, the ...

Moon takes the career of Sam Rockwell to astronomical heights as he completely carried this interesting little film not once but twice and ironically in both instances as a character named Sam. From an idea by Duncan Jones (son of David Bowie) who also directs this low key sci-fi thriller we’re stationed on the dark side of the moon in the distant future when the earth’s primary energy source ...

Public Enemies

July 5th, 2009

Public Enemies introduces a new millennium audience, probably for the first time, to household names that were criminals with rock star status almost a century ago. This new audience didn’t have the benefit of The Untouchables every week but thanks to MTV might appreciate the allure of the gangsta lifestyle to an oppressed population. During The Depression years and the early days of the FBI ...
