Emotional and Powerful, 28 June 2009

World Trade Center

directed by

Oliver Stone

World Trade Center is the tale of two NY policemen and their struggle to survive beneath the rubble of the collapsed World Trade Center.

A good script, good acting and good directing is what makes WTC an emotional and effective drama. Both Nicolas Cage and Michael Peña give wonderful performances, considering they are restricted in movement for the larger majority of the film. Bello and Gyllenhaal also give good performances in a side story which was really the heart of the story. Oliver Stone has done this brave story proud.

Finally some improvement, 28 June 2009

Leprechaun: Back 2 tha Hood

directed by

Steven Ayromlooi

After some very bad sequels, a Leprechaun film has been made which can happily conclude the Irish monster's saga. It might have a reference to the hood in the title, but hardly similar to the previous attempt. Here they have created a worthy sequel. There may still be the problems with some of the characters and their dialogue, as well as some obvious plot holes, but Lep 6 actually worked on building up the characters, as well as a back story for the Leprechaun. Speaking of Leprechaun, Davis also manages to finish of his Leprechaun story, with one of his best Lep performances.

Really has one main target audience, 28 June 2009

Down with Love

directed by

Peyton Reed

Unlike some romantic comedies, Down with Love fails to offer anything which would attract the opposite target audience. It's the usual story of 2 people stuck in a love storyline, with a lot of the dialogue based on innuendos. The film does hold something impressive, which is its design. The sets are beautifully made, and the film is shot in such a way, that it does feel as if it was shot in the 60's. McGregor and Zellweger are their usual best, but it's David Hyde Pierce who steals the best scenes.

Could be the worst Leprechaun, 28 June 2009

Leprechaun in the Hood

directed by

Rob Spera

Another weak entry into the series. The script is terrible and unless you are the kind of audience for the type of gangster hip-hop story lines, they you won't think much of the characters. They just become typical stereotypes and become most annoying than anything, although Ice-T does pull off a fair performance. Unfortunately, this is Davis' weakest turn as the Leprechaun, which is supposed to be the driving force behind the film. The end result makes possibly the worst Leprechaun film.

Passable as Enjoyment, 17 June 2009


directed by

Eli Roth

It might not be as violent and uncomfortable than it promotes itself to be, but Hostel is still a fairly entertaining film. Whilst basic, there is in fact a story featured, with the torture featured much less than led to believe. What it does succeed in very well, is the power to get the audience involved. You really get involved with the characters that much that you can't help but put yourself in their position. Not for everyone, but can be enjoyable for some.

Not as good as previous two, but worthy entry, 17 June 2009

Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

directed by

Jonathan Mostow

Jonathan Mostow had big shoes to fill when he took on the first Terminator film without James Cameron. Was the end result better than the previous two films? Not at all! Is it still an enjoyable film? Definitely! It might not have the same level of excitement that Cameron provided and Nick Stahl might lack in charisma as John Connor, but with Arnie back, T3 delivers a fantastic climax that it has all been leading up to.

Once Going, I Loved It, 17 June 2009

Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy

directed by

Adam McKay

Uproar erupts when Ron Burgundy (Ferrell) must share the news room with a woman anchor.

Like many comedies, Anchorman does have a slow start, but as it goes on, the jokes don't stop. Will Ferrell and gang have created such wonderful and hilarious characters who won't be forgotten anytime soon. Add to this, some fantastic cameos from stars such as Tim Robbins and Jack Black, and you have one of the funniest films of 2004.

You just ask WHY?, 17 June 2009

Leprechaun 4: In Space

directed by

Brian Trenchard-Smith

After three movies set on Earth, the Leprechaun now goes where no Irish monster has gone before; SPACE!

After a fun and entertaining sequel, the Leprechaun franchise has hit a big low. Deciding to send the Irish monster into space, the fourth entry includes a large mixture of bad acting, bad effects and just a plain bad script. Instead of enjoying the sequel, you just sit there asking "why?" not just for yourself, but also for the characters.

Chicago (2002)

Fantastic Fun, 14 June 2009


directed by

Rob Marshall

After murdering a man, Roxie Hart (Zellweger) is sent to the big house, where she must lie her way out.

Rob Marshall has successfully brought Chicago to the big screen with a well written script and fantastic musical numbers. The cast is perfect, with Renée Zellweger perfect as Roxie Hart and Catherine Zeta-Jones excellent as Velma Kelly. The number of locations are kept small, with the stage used for a number of musical numbers, but these are presented so well, that it is just a joy to sit through each song.

Better than Expected, 14 June 2009

The Number 23

directed by

Joel Schumacher

Interesting thriller which further shows that Jim Carrey can do more than comedy. The concept of the story might sound complicated, but you soon pick up on it. The story keeps you hooked in right until the end, and even when all has been revealed, it is still not over. Whilst it does suffer from some of the same problems than other similar films have, such as too much development for particular characters, but just sitting back, should allow you to enjoy this.
