Open Season (2006)
A waste of time.
As the standard of animation continues to rise, its a shame that the quality of the features produces spirals downwards! Open Season is a prime example of how great animation doesn't make a good film. The film is completely let down by its voice actors.
Boog is obnoxious and selfish, and in no way likable. Its not Martin Lawerence playing the character, its simply him turning up and being himself. Same goes for Ashton Kutcher who voices Boogs friend.
The jokes are few and far between and the entire thing is a disgrace, acting as a quick buck for Lawerence and Kutcher.
The studios should give some real thought to hiring professional voice actors, rather than actors, who at best have limited talent as it is.
A great disappointment
I was a great fan of the West Wing and as such thought I would enjoy Studio 60 just as much. At first glance the two shows are very similar, both being produced by Aaron Sorkin.
However Studio 60 is a great disappointment. The characters are egotistical and in many cases plain annoying. Harriet Hayes is a prime example, all she does is go on about how she is not in love with Matt Albie (played by Matthew Perry).
All in all a great disappointment. I hope they don't cancel the show, but rather cut most of the cast and get some new writers in. I feel Sorkin may have been a one hit wonder with West Wing.
An amazing film, second only to Gladiator
Im not a fan of CGI, and to be honest I've never wanted to see the likes of Sin City, so you as you can imagine, I wasn't particularly looking forward to seeing 300.
From the outset I was amazed. The film is nothing short of amazing, the story is well told and heartfelt, the acting is absolutely top notch.
The tale of the 300 spartan warriors that faced the invading Persian over 2000 years ago, and from the outset we are introduced to the brutal spartan society where strength is valued above all else.
The battle scenes, of which there are many, are again amazing, and told beautifully.
This film is second only to Gladiator. Don't listen to anyone that says otherwise, see it.
Trys to be too much
If this film were a person it would go around telling people how clever it was.... often indicating that it was not.
The film is a complete waste of 2 hours, filled with bizarre moments and a central character that is nothing but annoying.
A few intriguing characters appear (for example the boy who works at the grocer), but they are quickly lost in this film, which attempts to stun the audience with its surreal moments and imagery.
This film clearly displays everything that is wrong with French cinema today.
Avoid at all costs.
Children of Men (2006)
An Amazing film, a must see
Children of Men is nothing short of amazing. The film depicts the UK in the year 2027. For the last 18 years not a single baby has been born as mankind has been struck by infertility. As society slowly unravels we glimpse a nightmare future where homeland security and terrorism are one and the same.
Without giving too much away, the film is amazing. It shows a very realistic view of London in the future, a gritty and urban realisation.
The special effects are astounding, while being very subtle.
Clive Owen plays Theo well, showing the right amount of emotion and being the reluctant hero.
A wonderful film that should not be missed. See it in the cinema if possible.
So much promise, so little delivery
I was expecting so much more from this film, but it failed to deliver. Adam Garcia has gone down hill to star in something like this.
The plot was over complicated, and the ending seemed to drag on far too long. After overcoming obstacle after obstacle, I realised I just didn't care if they won or lost.
Rosanna Dawson is completely wooden in this performance, and has no chemistry with Garcia. The only bit of entertainment comes from Garcias band of geeks, however even this isn't enough to save the file.
Plot holes are major and massive, such as using technology that is far too advanced, and being able to get an entire marching back onto the high security premises of another company!
Avoid this. Watch Office Space instead.
