The Wiggles: Wiggle Bay (2002)
My son has watched it about 100 times !
A fun little movie with the Wiggles (of course). Lots of lovely songs that your children and you will soon be singing along too. The movie moves along with a nice pace with a fun (but silly) plot. My son loves this movie and wants to watch it every evening when I'm working on my PC.
A minor annoyance is the actual acting ability of the various Wiggles. Mostly it's fine, but some scenes are particularly "stilted". The red Wiggle in particular when he's commenting on a gift that Dorothy receives is a real low point.
But.. if you're under 5 you're going to love this movie.
Utter crap unfortunately
This movie was so painfully bad, that despite all my better judgment I actually made it through to the end. All that can go wrong in a movie did- utterly terrible acting, predictable ending, discontinuity, did I mention that my dog can do a better performance? Finally, for a movie whose title is quite obvious in meaning, the actual "trios" is over in about 30 seconds, shot in what seems like soft focus and barely warrants the rating the film got.
I highly recommend this film if you have obnoxious family members visiting (or friends), who refuse to leave your home, as a last ditch effort to retain your sanity.

Resident Evil (2002)
Gore, glorious gore.
Fast. Furious. Fabulous!
If you are a fan of the PlayStation game of the name, then you will NOT be disappointed. Unlike most other movies that are based on games (ie. Wing Commander), Resident Evil is so close of the game that it scared me more than the nasties on the screen. Okay, so the plot is a tad thin, and the memory loss thing is just a bit too convenient, nevertheless I enjoyed the rollercoaster ride that this movie provided.
In a nutshell its blood, gore, sexy ladies and damn nasty zombies. The movied played out as nicely as the game and so I figured it was a good way to spend a almostly drizzly afternoon.
Maybe I missed something while munching on my popcorn
I have hoped for a lot from this movie, but maybe I missed something while munching on my popcorn. Yes, the acting was fine - but the disjoint time-line / story-line had me wishing I'd gone for a chock-bomb. Maybe its also an American thing or my lack of familiarity with the whole civil rights movement from the time - but unfortunately this movie left me quite confused. 1/10.
Cruel Intentions 2 (2000)
The worst movie I've seen so far in 2002
I think that the comments from most of the other reviewers speaks for itself. Basically the story line is a rehash of the first movie. The acting is poor and quite simply unbelievable.
This movie is quite simply one of the worst I've seen. Do not waste your time seeing it.
Life in a Day (1999)
Science gone wrong
To be honest, I wasn't paying a great deal of attention at the beginning of this made-for-TV movie. I had other things on my mind, dinner, work etc.
However, as the movie progressed and our protagonist was faced with some real issues (test drugs on animals to save a loved one etc) I began to pay more and more attention to the actors. As a previous reviewer has commented, the plot is not new. Mary Shelly still does it best. But, I did enjoy the development of the young lady Jasmine from your girl, to beautiful woman and beyond...
This tv-movie was never going to change the world, but it'd recommend it if you are between meals and need a change of pace. 7 out of 10.
A fab mix of science fiction and romance
If you are a fan of H.G. Wells and like the odd spot of romance then this "made for tv special" is for you. I saw it on the Hallmark Channel over the span of 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
The format is reasonably simple. Set in post-WWII, Wells is visited by an "up and coming star" lady, a supposed journalist, who comes to quiz the famous author on an old science chum. This in leads to Wells relating a number of stories that he played some small part in well over 50 years ago. All of the stories are short, lasting about 40 minutes screen time. They mostly revolve around time and its a wonderful exploration on its varying effects on people.
Thrown into all of this is Well's love interest. A charming lady scientist who urges the great writer onto bigger and better things.
All in all this is one of the better 'made for telly movies' that I've seen. A decent cast, nice settings and a good script. I gave it a rare 10/10.
Sure the sound is on the dodge. Sure the acting is a tab below that of a drunken hamster. Sure there is one too many close ups that seem to last forever (ie. the guy blown up in the shed).
But nevertheless if you are a die hard Dr Who fan I defy you not to enjoy this movie. What with Daleks, Tardis, and a good dose of "EXTERMINTE" thrown in, who could complain.
Lilian's Story (1996)
While I haven't read the novel (which by all accounts is quite good), there is little good to be said of this film. I'm not sure if it was the incoherent flash backs, or the real "Aussie" acting, that most had me reaching for the remote control.
So, unless you are a big Ruth Cracknell fan and can stand the tedium this film has to offer, it is, unfortunately, best forgotten.
I Don't Buy Kisses Anymore (1992)
Seinfeld all over again
Okay so if you like George from Seinfeld then you are going to enjoy this movie. Jason Alexander as Bernie Fishbine is the ever lovable George all over again. With all of his usual hang-ups over weight, getting a gal, and generally being a grown up Charlie Brown.
Although this movie is almost a decade old, it's sentiments are pretty much universal. That is, it is the tried and true formulae- boy meets girl, boy falls for girl, girl hurts boy, boy forgives girl and the rest is history.
All in all a good rainy day movie. Bring a big bag of popcorn and some Bacci's - they go well with this flick.
