Pompeii (2014)

DVD- 1hr. 45min.
First Viewing
The visual effects are pretty good, but this is the type of "swords and sandals" movie that's been made a thousand times, and it shows. There's little life here, with a flat script and a bored cast (though Kiefer Sutherland's hammy as hell performance is pretty entertaining) that make things pretty impossible to connect with or even care about.

Occasionally funny caper that's quite watchable, but not at all memorable, and pretty lazy. Firth and Courtenay are game, but Rickman and, especially, Diaz overdo it, coming off as little more than caricatures. If there's one takeaway from this it's this; the Coen brothers should be the only filmmakers making Coen Brothers scripts.

Trying to riff on the cliches of the Y/A genre while also playing into them, Vampire Academy is only occasionally entertaining when it sticks solely to the former.

There's a great premise and a strong cast, but nothing is ever done with them. After a promising first half hour, the film pretty much devolved into a standard slasher flick/Alien-wannabe.

It's hard to talk about a movie like Walkabout. It's really more of a personal experience than a communal one; with so little dialogue and visual flair, it falls to the viewer to really suss out what he or she feels towards it. So I'll simply say that of my experience, it was just okay. I've never really ever been a fan of this style, so I was fairly averse to it from the onset. I can say that it was a visually stunning film though; one with various arresting images that kept me involved.

The premise is pretty amusing, as is Simon Pegg's performance, but it never really goes anywhere. It starts out strong, then devolves into a sporadic affair when the plot gets stretched too thin.

The story meanders at times throughout it's runtime, and the beats are all pretty expected, but Barney's Version is an often funny, surprisingly touching story about love and the passage of time. The cast is first-rate, led by one of Giamatti's finest performances.

It's a fairly minor effort, but it was funny enough, with some wonderfully oddball jokes, to hold my interest.

Essentially a feature-length version of a legal drama with A-listers; Fracture is a well-made but totally unoriginal crime thriller that benefits heavily from it's two leads.

Pattinson effectively sheds his Twilight image, but does so in a dull, tedious, indulgent bore that never effectively prods the subjects that it sets out to.

A well-meaning political comedy that aspires to be a modern day Capra film, but is just too bland and toothless to be it.

The leads play off of each other nicely, but they can't elevate a poorly written cliche-athon that is as dumb as a sack of rocks. I will admit though, there are a few good action scenes, but none are enough to overcome the shit plot.

The film starts off fairly amusingly, but it's clever premise wears thin as the movie goes on, quickly becoming a slog. The leads are game though, which accounts for much the film's, admittedly small, pleasure.

While it is a bit to slow and meandering at times, namely the beginning, when it kicks into gear it becomes smart, tense southern crime flick. It's also nice to see Cage doing some genuine acting again,

To Michael Bay's credit, The Island is infinitely more thought-provoking than his usual dreck. Unfortunately, however, it falls into many of the same trappings (casual sexism, racism, homophobia, etc.) of most of his catalog. The cast is okay, but most seem too stilted to break away from the pack. The action, as with most Bayhem inducing endeavors, is one of the few positives. Mostly though, the biggest problem here is that it's all just too boring.

Occasionally funny, but more often grating, Girl Most Likely features some solid performances, but rarely ever break for the indie dramedy mold.
