GRAN TORINO, a film about a grumpy old-timer who begrudgingly becomes the local neighbourhood hero, is surprisingly one of the best films I have seen all year. Clint Eastwood has struck gold again!
It’s an absolute sin to find yourself bored during a thriller/action movie especially if it had all the right ingredients but was just blended the wrong way. Apart from a few fairly decent shoot-em-up scenes The International was a long-haul dizzy trip to nowhere.
Troublesome, rambunctious, and absolutely wild; this is Marley the very cute Labrador whose antics such as eating everything in sight including a message minder machine (yes, the whole thing!) supplied so much material that there was a newspaper column, a book, and now a film dedicated to him. Who needs Lassie when you have Marley to keep you laughing, and crying?
An overweight, sugar dependent, and over-dutiful mall cop who suddenly comes face to face with actual criminals might seem like the formula for a really good comedy but Paul Blart: Mall Cop just falls a little short as there are just not enough chuckles.
It’s so annoying when a film starts off quite interesting, leads into a dramatic action packed edge-of-the-seat middle, and then just fails miserably fobbing you off with an ending which is just ridiculous. It could have been so much more.
How can a man be the perfect boyfriend and hang out with the guys or be in tune with his feminine side without being a complete wimp? That’s the question that Peter Klaven, a lovely but socially inept, real estate agent desperately needs to find answers to. With plenty of laughs, cringy moments, and even a few revelations, this is one of the best comedies about male friendship to come to the screens in a while.
Murder, government conspiracies, love triangles, and oh so many twisting plots, all in a day’s work for brash newspaper reporter Cal McAffrey who uncovers it all; if only the life of an everyday hack was this thrilling. This film is certainly intriguing to watch as the suspense is well paced keeping the audience enthralled throughout.
The gorgeous and rugged Hugh Jackman is certainly great at getting his claws out in this action-packed flick but is let down by a rather rushed ending.
OK so there’s no real surprise with this film - there’s the arrogant photographer with commitment issues, the slighted and heart broken girlfriends, throw in a bit of Scrooge-like ‘this is your life’ moral teachings, and hey presto you have yet another romcom.
As one who thought that yet another addition to the ‘done to death’ Star Trek franchise would be a terrible idea I have to admit that this time the film has boldly gone where it should go.
