Clueless Movie Reviews
While not as satisfying a cinematic experience as its predecessor, Star Trek Into Darkness is still a wildly entertaining ride that continues to keep the Star Trek franchise hurtling to new heights of fun and excitement, while still honoring its classic characters and iconic moments.
Lavish, decadent, and seductive, The Great Gatsby as a film is, at least at first, as irresistible to the eye and to the senses. It’s also strikingly uneven.
As far as eye-candy goes, there’s plenty to enjoy in Oblivion, almost enough, in fact, to fully distract you from how derivative and predictable the film’s plot turns out to be. Almost.
The Jackie Robinson biopic 42 is a beautifully shot, often entertaining depiction of an important moment in professional baseball, the breaking of the color barrier in the major leagues. It’s also harmless and, aside from Chadwick Boseman’s charismatic depiction of Robinson and Harrison Ford’s scene-chewing, pretty forgettable as a film.
Evil Dead, the remake of the 1981 Sam Raimi cult classic horror film, is a humorless exercise in torture porn that lacks any of the imagination or the fun of the original. It’s the worst thing that a horror movie can be: mindnumbingly dull.
In every measurable way, G.I. Joe: Retaliation is a vast improvement over the film it serves as a sequel to, 2009′s G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra. It’s a genuinely fun, well-directed and well-paced action yarn that should make adult movie goers happy while still selling plenty of toys.
Admission is NOT your typical run-of-the-mill rom-com, and that’s a good thing. It’s smart, original, and it sacrifices the goofiness you might expect from a Tina Fey-Paul Rudd collaboration for earnestness and genuine drama.
Gerard Butler kills lots and lots of terrorists threatening the White House and the president in Olympus Has Fallen, the latest stylish bloodbath of an action film from director Antoine Fuqua. If that’s your thing, you’re very likely to enjoy the film, which for the most part is well staged and slickly produced.
The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is anything but “incredible,” unless you’re talking about the level of disappointment you might feel assuming you sit through the whole thing.
Director Sam Raimi and the scripters of Oz the Great and Powerful appear to be well aware of the fine line needed to walk in creating a new work while still paying homage to the original. For the most part, the latest 3D wonder from Disney works.
