Sherlock Holmes (2009) Sherlock Holmes is the greatest detective who was ever created, with the possible exception of Perry Mason.  Just kidding.  This film seemed to pass unnoticed.  Not much noise was made when it was announced for production and it is disappeared from theaters fairly quickly.  Critics have mixed thoughts on the film, and for good reason. "Sherlock Holmes" has some good acting.  That is what the film has going for it.  However, the film suffers in the plot arena.  It is not attention grabbing.  It could have been, but the filmmakers let too many moments slip away.  The audience drifts in and out of this film. The plot is a somewhat original connection between spiritual beliefs and science.  However, at times this film feels very much like "The Prestige."  Holmes is hired to hunt down Lord Blackwood, who has been on a killing ...

Fourth Kind, The (2009) Paranormal activity has probably the biggest cult following in the history of mankind.  According to this film, there have been over two million documented reports of alien or paranormal activity, ranging from abduction to encounters to sightings.  While a great number of these reports can easily be proven false, there are some that truly boggle the mind.  "The Fourth Kind" is a tale of one such story. There are a number of "ghost" shows out there such as "Ghost Hunters" and "Most Haunted."  These shows never, ever show anything that is astounding.  It is always a bunch of feelings and technical gizmos that flash.  The only way the events on those shows can be remotely believed is by being there in person. "The Fourth Kind" is different.  And, it is a different type of film that blends the ...

Whiteout (2009) At the outset I was hopeful while watching "Whiteout."  However, as time dragged on so did the film.  The film has had a complicated history and it shows in the final film.  "Whiteout" is based on a limited comic and the film's story is just as limited. The film was shot in a miserable Antarctic setting.  The cold and misery shows on the actors.  The actors also seem to start showing signs of a busted movie as time wears on.  This is supposed to be a suspenseful film, but the mystery is dull and the turn of events of predictable. In "Whiteout," Kate Beckinsale portrays a U.S. Marshal, Carrie, who is stationed by her own choice in Antarctica.  She is punishing herself for a botched drug bust, which ended up not even remotely being her fault.  She wastes her does taking reports ...

A Pefect Getaway (Unrated Director's Cut) (2009) “A Perfect Getaway” is a mystery/suspense thriller that doesn’t keep up the mystery or suspense.  Obviously the filmmakers were trying to throw twists and turns in the story to keep the audience guessing.  However, the filmmakers forgot to make us care enough.  The actors aren’t developed enough for the audience, we don’t sit on pins and needles or jump at the “starling” moments. “A Perfect Getaway” is the story of newlyweds honeymooning on a Hawaiian island.  Turns out that there has been a gruesome murder of a newlywed couple on an adjacent island.  Cliff and Cydney are the newlyweds.  They are headed for an 11-mile trail that leads to a dead end beach.  Along the trail, the couple meets Nick (Timothy Olyphant) and Gina (Kiele Sanchez).  The film then spends too long with the couples trying to decide whether the other ...

Angels & Demons (2009) A lot of hype was made about “Angels & Demons,” over a year before its theatrical release.  It seemed that every time the television channel landed on a program like Entertainment Tonight, they were always covering the latest news about the film.  “Angels & Demons” is the sequel to the blockbuster bust, “The Da Vinci Code.”  Both films are based on the novels by Dan Brown. “The Da Vinci Code” was highly anticipated, but ultimately a letdown.  It is difficult to turn a complicated book into a movie, but the filmmakers took too many liberties with the story arcs.  Unfortunately, the same goes for “Angels & Demons.”  There are many holes and jumps in the story.  To compare, the Harry Potter books have been turned into films that capture the audience.  While numerous items have been changed or removed from the ...
