A prequel of sorts to JM Barrie’s Peter Pan. And not a very good one either. Some interesting production design, but that’s about it. A poor script, misjudged performances, and evidence of a post-production salvage attempt. A disappointment.
A corporate stork and a young woman have to deliver a baby. Though intermittently hilarious (the wolves are good, and there are some beautifully random jokes) this is an odd beast with a complicated set-up that has little inner logic. The usual heartwarming lessons learned, though.
Electrical power workers battle their demons, and sometimes, power cuts. Ho-hum drama which can’t decide if it’s interested more in blue-collar soap operatics or in Hawksian camaraderie under pressure, ending up focusing on neither.
Patterned after the success of the peerless Muppet Christmas Carol, this romp through the RL Stevenson classic is less certain, but there are enough jokes, production detail, and exuberance to pass muster, plus one great song (“Cabin Fever”).
Three children journey with Peter Pan to battle Captain Hook in Neverland. Okay minor Disney cartoon with one unfortunately dated song and dance sequence. A greatest-hits version of the story.
Some sharp moments, but on the whole a little flat. The story is more off key than the usual efforts, but it’s a melody you’ll be all too familiar with.
Fun film where a teenager enters a secret fantasy world and uncovers a dark plot. Incredible VFX, action and cast. Plenty to like here! Some clumsy scripting and a hint of a disingenuous plot occasionally get in the way, but very watchable! :-
