Conan The Barbarian (3D/2D) (2011) “Conan The Barbarian” needless to say is a remake of the original cult classic starring Arnold Schwarzenegger.  I was never really a fan of the original film, and unfortunately the remake doesn’t merit any increase in interest in the series of Conan films. The film itself lacks a consistent nature.  There are a few riveting moments, but they are far outweighed by the dull and contrived moments of the film.  The events unfold without logic.  I lost count how many times the film bounces from one sequence to another with no logical explanation as to how the characters came by the knowledge. The plot is a simple revenge story.  Conan longs to take revenge for the death of his father by an unnamed conqueror.  Of course, the information needed to avenge his father’s death falls into his lap many years later.  There ...

G-Force (3D/2D) (2009) This a review of the 3D version of “G-Force.”  See the 3D Video section for updated information regarding this title’s 3D quality.  The remainder of the 3D release is identical to the previous “G-Force” Blu-ray release, including audio options and special features.  This package simply includes a Blu-ray 3D disc in addition.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, ...

Jurassic Park (Ultimate Trilogy) (1993/1997/2001) It is hard to imagine what the film experience would be like today without the creation of “Jurassic Park.”  It was instrumental in the development of digital visual effects.  And still, done in 1993 contains better CGI work than many of the modern films.  Spielberg has been just as influential in the filming process as digital effects.  His creation truly made us believe that dinosaurs roamed the earth. There is a plethora of information out there on the Jurassic Park trilogy and so great time on the subject will not be spent here. For comparison, reviews of the DVD releases of the three films can be found at the following links. Jurassic Park The Lost World: Jurassic Park Jurassic Park III The original Jurassic park film is by far the most popular and most original of the trilogy.  The story is developed in a better fashion ...

Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (3D/2D) (2011) I couldn’t believe it when I heard that a fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean film was in production.  I thought to myself, what are they thinking?  How is that going to work?  Could it actually be any good?  It seems that you should always go with your gut instincts.  This is the perfect example of what not to do with a perfectly fine trilogy. The filmmakers have capitalized badly on a good name.  “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” is an effort to try an copy all the successful moments of the original films into one.  This results in a slow moving, horribly written story film.  I sat through this thing trying to figure out what the purpose of everything was.  What is the ultimate end goal here? So, the just of what I can figure, we have Jack Sparrow (I ...

Green Lantern (Extended Edition) (3D/2D) (2011) Growing up, “Green Lantern” was not one of my comic book staples.  I was familiar with the story but really only through the cartoon.  Still, I was pleased to learn of the creation of an action-packed, motion picture.  Those hopes were dashed along with everyone else’s once the picture was actually released. Don’t get me wrong.  I think there are some nice moments in this film, but it ultimately fails to deliver action for action-junkies, and it fails to capture the essence of the Green Lantern saga for comic book fans.  This really isn’t surprising given the turnout rate of these blockbuster comic book adaptations.  Still, I think we can all agree that we want some substance. “Green Lantern” is plagued with mediocre and at many times over the top performances, weak scripting, often times cheesy CGI, and just overall bad representation ...
