Far better than the disappointing second film, this takes the characters back to the race tracks of America. Shamelessly riffing off Rocky 3, 4 and 5, this is a great piece of family entertainment. Not Pixar’s best, but still a cut above similar fare.
Still defying all expectation, this evolution of the story is a far more direct affair, with a simple revenge plot driving the action forward. Superlative characters, beautifully shot; this series is an example to all how to handle a major franchise.
Somewhat confusing big screen adaptation that clearly suffers from trying to cram seven books into two hours of screen time. What’s here is decent enough, but when it shares more in common with The Last Action Hero, you wonder what all the fuss was about.
Misjudged mocumentary that tries too hard to be funny, as a group of mismatched assassins attempt to kill off the deadliest assassin who ever lived. This desperately wants to be a Christopher Guest film, but fails on most levels. Disappointing. 😦
Solid, if unspectacular, courtroom drama with a whiff of made for TV about it. Reeves is good as the attorney fighting for the innocence of his young plaintiff, but there is nothing too surprising here. Will pass ninety minutes if you have them spare. 😐
A documentary team investigate a supposedly-haunted asylum, the site of a reality show gone wrong five years before. Straightforward jumpscare found-footage horror sequel (to Seven Nights of Darkness), effective for an hour before collapsing in on itself, storywise.
When a sex game goes wrong, a woman has to fight her demons. Solid adaptation of the Stephen King novel which, though it fumbles its last revelation, is well-acted and which cinematically sustains its potentially unfilmable premise.
