Genova

Genre: Drama

I found it too slow and contrived for my liking.

GENOVA is an interesting study of how the sudden death of a family member can affect the dynamics within that family. Starring Colin Firth, this independent film is set initially in the cold winters of Chicago before moving to the warmer climes of sunny Italy – Genova. The opening sequence is of particular interest. A mother (Hope Davis) driving ...

It's one full of witty lines that'll keep you smiling most of the time.

AWAY WE GO, by acclaimed director Sam Mendes, is his most different movie. All of his other pictures (REVOLUTIONARY ROAD, JARHEAD, ROAD TO PERDITION and AMERICAN BEAUTY) are in-your-face, big films, full of very dramatic moments. They have their funny bits, but their underlying tone is always dark and foreboding. In a complete change of pace for ...

I found the characters very annoying and too angry for my liking.

If I had to pick a movie about shopping mall security to watch it would not be OBSERVE AND REPORT. Starring two likeable comic actors, Seth Rogen and Anna Faris (who I thought was hilarious in THE HOUSE BUNNY), I was particularly disappointed with the final outcome. Like PAUL BLART: MALL COP – the other popular mall security movie of 2009 – the ...

For present-day horror movies, "Trick 'r Treat" is a shot in the arm.

It's with a palpable autumnal atmosphere, seamlessly interlocking screenwriting, superlative cinematography and a regular upending of expectations that Michael Dougherty's "Trick'r Treat," a Halloween-set horror anthology in the spirit of George A. Romero's classic "Creepshow," qualifies as the year's strongest horror movie. First and foremost, ...

One of the silliest attempts at movie humour to hit our screen.

I’m not sure where to begin with this movie. Frankly, I’m almost at a loss for words after viewing LAND OF THE LOST (2009) and being bombarded with images of one of the silliest attempts at movie humour to hit our screen. I should have seen this coming, after all it stars Will Ferrel, but even this is considered pretty low in the long list of ...

Alan Rickman gives another wonderful droll performance.

If you are expecting a road movie, mixed in with wine and melodrama, BOTTLE SHOCK is not another SIDEWAYS. Wine and the California Nappa Valley are probably the only things these movies have in common. BOTTLE SHOCK is set in 1976 during a period of time when the emerging wine industry of California was trying to find an identity for itself, and ...

As Sam tries to kill the time until his contract is over, he starts seeing things.

"The power of the moon," intones the narrator in what appears to be a television commercial advertising an energy company, "the power of the future." It's a future of clean energy, thanks to a certain mineral on the moon. On the dark side of the moon, a lone worker named Sam Bell (Sam Rockwell) toils away, fixing any problems with the huge helium...

Orphan

Genre: Horror

The year’s most laughably overwrought horror hit.

If you see only one movie in which Vera Farmiga plays the distressed mother of a creepy child, see JOSHUA. A diabolical little SOB with the mind of a little-league Hannibal Lecter, Joshua kicks the crap out of Esther, the precocious little twerp at the center of ORPHAN. Lacking the earlier film’s wit, style and psychological acuity, this is the year...

Genuinely unsettling and authentically unforgettable.

After years of going out of my way to avoid it, I finally got up the nerve to watch Takashi Miike’s infamous 1999 horror film, AUDITION. My excuses for not seeing it were a) life is too short, and b) it sounded like something that would give me post-traumatic stress disorder. I decided to take the plunge when Quentin Tarantino named it one of the 20...

An unoriginal but thoroughly refreshing horror.

"It's fucking nuts! I know that." Such is a line of dialogue spoken in Patrick Lussier's My Bloody Valentine revamp and such is a fitting description of the movie itself. Humorously fun in a way that the recent, piss-poor Friday the 13th retread can only ever hope to be, director Lussier's slasher throwback embraces drama-as-parody while diving ...
