G-Force (2009) There isn’t much to say about “G-Force.”  It is a relatively thin film that offers entertainment for kids.  The film takes the same spy kid genre story and hands it over to talking guinea pigs.  Despite low ratings by viewers, the film did take in about $140 million at the box office.  That isn’t too shabby. “G-Force” stars three guinea pigs, a fly and a mole as super spies that have been trained by a forgotten department of the Federal Bureau.  When their funding is about to be taken away, they embark on a mission to gather intelligence that the FBI has been unable to get for two years.  After a somewhat less than stealthy mission the guinea pigs successfully retrieve the data.  However, when the Bureau shows up for an inspection, the data is found to show nothing at all.  ...

Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian (2009) In 2006 “Night at the Museum” captured imaginations.  Bringing the Natural History Museum of New York to life was inspiring.  The success of the film has spawned a sequel three years later.  While the majority of the cast returns, they are all an underwhelming part of the story. “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” is somewhat exciting, but suffers from the typical sequel syndrome.  The story is very disappointing.  It is uneventful and rather chaotic.  Right from the start the story is unexpected.  It is two years after the end of the first film and Larry has left the night guard position to start his own company that creates gadgets.  This isn’t what any viewer would expect the way to movie to start, leaving you somewhat disappointed from the start. When Larry finally revisits his pals at the museum, he ...

Godzilla (1998) “Godzilla” is Roland Emmerich’s 1998 blockbuster bust.  There is no denying that Emmerich has created some of the most visually stunning films.  “The Day After Tomorrow” and “Independence Day” are not known for their wonderful stories, only for their visual styles.  “Godzilla” wasn’t a bust at the box office, having raked in over $130 million.  Still, that doesn’t mean this was a good movie.  It was seen simply for its visual effects. “Godzilla” suffers from a lame story, horrible dialogue and a lack of intuitive moves.  Over the course of 139 minutes I lost count how many times the actors just stand and stare blankly at Godzilla or his hatchlings in front of them.  Have they ever heard of running?  Aside from the amount of screen time wasted on those shots, the film wastes more time on tricking Godzilla with mounds ...

Blue Thunder (1983) "Blue Thunder" is another one of the those movies that you end up asking yourself, "why did the studio choose to release this obscure title on Blu-ray?"  The film is not as bad as Sony's earlier released, "No Way Back."  However, the film gets pretty close.  There isn't really anything in the movie to keep your attention.  It is entirely predictable, but in the end, who cares. The film stars Roy Scheider, someone who has continued acting over the years, but has not been noticeable in anything by "Jaws" and "Jaws 2."  The film also stars a young Daniel Stern.  Neither gives any type of convincing performance, nor does anyone else in the film.  Colonel Cochrane (Malcolm McDowell) is also quite annoying. "Blue Thunder" follows Officer Frank Murphy (Roy Scheider), a pilot for police helicopters and his partner, trainee Lymangood (Daniel Stern) ...

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (4 Movie Boxset) The "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is perhaps one of the only action adventure sagas that is limited to a couple generations, in terms of the originals.  I grew up on the turtles animated series, the original cartoon, not the plethora of remakes that have gone around.  I collected all the action figures and still have them in mint condition.  I played the Turtles game on my Gameboy and Nintendo systems.  I believe I even have some of the original collector's cards.  When the movies came out in consecutive years, 1990, 1991, and 1992 they were hit among my age group.  Then, the turtles disappeared, not to be heard from again until just a few year ago.  The cartoon was resurrected and a CGI feature was created. This rebirth has inspired the younger crowd of today.  The youngsters have even become aware ...
