An entertaining comedy that makes people laugh and feel good. Now that is what I call something special.

There is something that is nice about a movie that knows what it is and does not take itself too seriously. The Hangover is one of these films. Here is a picture that does not strive for greatness- it just wants to make you laugh. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that. Doug (Justin Bartha) is getting married in two days to Tracy (Sasha ...

And they call Eli Roth callous?

The FINAL DESTINATION franchise - never the most noble series (the first is the only worthwhile film, just) - hits what is thus far its low point in the David R. Ellis-directed THE FINAL DESTINATION. Further proving that the 3D bandwagon is not one in which directors hop on for the purposes of good filmmaking, this redundant continuation of the ...

I could watch this movie again and again -- so long as I concentrated only on the spectacular images.

Director David Yates's HARRY POTTER AND THE HALF-BLOOD PRINCE is consistently visually stunning -- a real feast for the eyes. The story -- not so much. Always entertaining but rarely more than mildly so, the movie takes over an hour of just taxiing around the cinematic runway before it attempts liftoff. The result is a movie that is never ...

Moments of brilliance, many more moments of boredom.

ennifer's Body comes loaded with a pretty big freight of expectation: it's Diablo Cody's first script since her Oscar winning Juno, for one thing, and for another, it's pneumatic robot-bait starlet Megan Fox's first high-profile role outside the Transformers films which demanded of her only the ability to look sweaty, hit her mark, and have really ...

Brüno

Genre: Comedy

The main problem with BRUNO is that this mockumentary isn’t as realistic or believable as BORAT.

I watched the R rated version on DVD – the version that had been prohibited in Australian cinemas. I wish I hadn’t. I was flashed a good 30 second screen shot of Sacha Baron Cohen’s penis shouting “Bruno” and I’m still recovering from the post traumatic stress of that frightful vision. The main problem with BRUNO is that this mockumentary isn’t as ...

If this isn’t enough to bring a tear to your eye, then you may have a heart of stone.

THE SECRET LIFE OF BEES is based on a bestselling novel by Sue Monk Kid. Like any novel of some given success it becomes a target for some Hollywood executive in the hopes of being a lucrative endeavour. In this case, I believe that one of the list of executive producers were the Smiths (Jade and Will). It had moderate success at the US box office ...

It many ways I suppose The 40 Year-Old Virgin is the birth of the bromantic comedy.

Shaun Henisey picks the Top 25 films of the decade. To view his other picks, click here. 25. The 40 Year-Old Virgin It many ways I suppose The 40 Year-Old Virgin is the birth of the bromantic comedy. There have been numerous rip off's of this formula (vulgar with a heart) over the last several years, but there are none that exhibit the spirit and ...

Few films have been as misunderstood as Stephen Spielberg's A.I.

50. A.I. Artificial Intelligence Few films have been as misunderstood as Stephen Spielberg's A.I. - Artificial Intelligence. Originally intended to be a Stanley Kubrick production, when Spielberg announced that he was taking over the project after Kubrick's death, the media and critical community were skeptical at best. I remember viewing the ...

A good try at Christmas humour but somehow it is lacking true mirth and good cheer.

Christmas draws nigh again and on its tail is a trail of Hollywood movie offerings released to lighten the pockets of holiday viewers. I missed the release of FOUR CHRISTMASES last year, but it has arrived on DVD this year on Santa’s sleigh. For some reason a lot of Christmas movies feature dysfunctional people in dysfunctional families, and ...

I realised I had gone through 90 minutes of horror without feeling any tension or fright.

On occasion, I do like to borrow a mindless movie about zombies/mutants who wreak death and destruction on the world, and I got exactly what I asked for – the mindless bit. The year is somewhere in the future, on some distant planet where a mysterious machine hidden beneath the earth is converting the dead and dying into killer zombies. Throw into...
