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 South Korean girl fights to keep her pet super-pig from the hands of a multinational corporation. Utterly enthralling ET/Pete’s Dragon variant for adults, drawing on Gilliam, Jeunet et Caro, early Besson, Buster Keaton and Studio Ghibli, yet is an original too.
An immortal witch-hunter tackles an ancient foe. At times well-directed, but this is nevertheless a muddled and uninvolving action fantasy effort which suffers from convoluted plotting, an underpowered villain, and decent actors phoning in performances.
A demonic superhero battles neo-Nazi occultists bent on unleashing interdimensional chaos. Gorgeously-designed though shallow action fantasy clearly in love with its world and protagonist.
A mortal becomes embroiled in a war between Egyptian gods. Campy and intermittently spectacular, this is still two hours of character actors hamming in front of variably-lit greenscreens.
The younger brother of a noble prince is a reluctant quest participant. Handsomely-mounted stoner fantasy romp, with a good cast struggling to make the most of a weak script. A handful of funny moments if you’re feeling indulgent, but that’s about it.
Humans and renegade orcs band together to save a world. Lovingly-made, detailed, and well-shot for 3D, this is nevertheless a standard greenscreen-heavy sword and sorcery flick which offers little by way of originality in either its characters or story.
