God Bless America (2011)
I'm feeling somewhat guilty about enjoying this movie.While I completely agree with the leading character's dismay and disgust at the celebrity-obsessed culture (which is no longer an American problem..it's gone global) and the inane tripe which fills our TV screens daily, I was a little uneasy at the - solve the problem by shooting the s**t out of everyone who annoys you solution, but at one point the movie even manages to poke fun at themselves concerning the "gun culture" problem. It was clearly cheaply made but well made, well acted and did make me laugh out loud on several occasions.Perhaps ill-timed due to recent events involving nut-jobs with guns, the victims and families of which have my wholehearted sympathy..I feel the passing of time may be kinder to this movie
Wrath of the Titans (2012)
Someone please release the Kraken on this movie
As an older viewer (I come from the days of what I lovingly refer to as my "plastic monster" movies, Jason, Sinbad, Land That Time Forgot etc) I am constantly in awe of the advances made in visual effects nowadays, so I looked forward greatly to the Clash of the Titans remake and all in all I wasn't disappointed.It had a some memorable moments and a fine cast, though it did seem to lack the sense of magic and wonder of the original (but maybe that's just me and my Peter Pan problem) The sequel to the remake promised to be even bigger and better...so what happened there then ? Why did I find I'd lost interest in what was going on (If indeed anything was going on) very early on. Most of the actors went through their paces with a kind of "ummm, getting paid big bucks,better do something" attitude, "Big" Liam and Mr Fiennes were pretty much strolling along and I found myself not caring who was off to find what,who had to help who to defeat whoever or who lived or died or how many times they died.Even the super eye-gouging CGI had me yawning by the end...P.S. The only reason I gave this movie a rating of (2) was for the addition of Bill Nighy (I find myself glued to his every facial twitch) as for the rest..I have gotten more excited by the words buffering - buffering!
