Sadly, Joseph Kosinski’s Oblivion failed to disprove my opinion that Tom Cruise should just stick to Mission Impossible films.
In my attempt to catch up with my incredibly belated reviews, and try to clear the backlog; I’m writing very short reviews on some of the more disappointing films that have come out over the past few months. Next up: Silent Hill: Revelation 3D
It’s been a while since a good musical graced our cinema screens, so is Rock of Ages worth the wait? In short; no. Not even Cruise’s performance can save this one.
It’s with regret I have to retract my previous statement: Friday/Saturday night action films are capable of being just incredibly bad. Gone was awful, Lockout wasn’t bad, and Safe is probably the most boring film I’ve seen at the cinema since The Devil Inside.
There’s nothing quite like settling down to an action packed thriller, even if it does have its faults, on a Saturday night. Amanda Seyfried’s new film Gone, advertised as a suspense thriller, is nothing short of boring and is certainly on the short list for worst film of 2012.
I don’t think I’ll ever learn that just because someone credible features in a film, it certainly doesn’t make it a good one. Yet again, I experienced this disappointment with The Cold Light of Day
The 2011 Oranges and Sunshine explores the true story of Margaret Humphreys: a social worker who uncovers the most significant social scandals of recent times. Does it manage to entertain whilst getting the facts across?
Even though it is nominated for an Oscar in the category for best picture, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close has been subject to fierce criticism by the critics. Is it really as mawkish as everyone makes it out to be?
I can’t quite believe I’m reviewing Jack and Jill..
Unfortunately my mantra “Every Ewan McGregor film is a good film” lets me down once again in Steven Soderbergh’s Haywire
