Due Date (2010) “Due Date” fits perfectly into the common critic line, “you’ll either love it or hate.”  Unfortunately, for me it is the latter.  I found “Due Date” to be contrived, tasteless and excruciatingly not funny.  Now, just to make it clear, I actually watched this film twice just to make sure that I wasn’t in a bad mood or something.  Bad move.  I loathed it more the second time. The basis for the film is a road trip from hell.  To complete opposite type personality strangers are “forced” to drive from Atlanta to Los Angeles in a rental car.  First, there is no build up in the opening.  Poof, and all of a sudden, by random our two main actors get into a meaningless conflict on an airplane and are de-boarded and placed on a “no-fly list.”  Seriously, you take someone off ...

Unstoppable (2010) “Unstoppable” is quite an unstoppable force, but veteran action director Tony Scott delivers powerful wow factor.  While the outcome of the film is inevitable, the ride is worth the price of admission.  “Unstoppable’s” entertainment value is high, but its overall formulation is mediocre. The film follows a basic action/adventure film’s path.  Someone screws up in the opening, big disaster for a major corporation, failed attempts at staving off disaster, two heroes to the rescue.  That about sums it up, except for the corporate struggle and the wife with a restraining order suddenly worried about her husband that becomes a hero. The film is set in Southern Pennsylvania where train yards still reign supreme.  Chris Pine and Denzel Washington, Tony Scott’s go to actor for action/suspense films (“Taking Of Pelham 1,2,3,” “Déjà vu,” “Man On Fire,” etc.) are our two heroes who are ...

Wild Target (2010) If you are looking for a straight-laced, high-tech, perfectly constructed crime caper, well, this isn’t it.  However, if you are looking for a witty, British comedy, then “Wild Target” may just foot the bill. The film was a bust in its limited US theatrical run, scrapping in under $200,000.  It faired better in the UK, but it never approached the estimated $8 million creation budget.  Likely, reviews of its theatrical release scared off potential moviegoers.  However, now that it is on home video it is easy to pick up and give a shot, pun intended. Bill Nighy stars as Victor Maynard, an assassin for hire that is more comic than professional.  From the opening hits you can see that this is not an uptight hitman film, but rather a simple hit gone wrong with a comedic twist affair. Victor is nearing 55 years ...

Conviction (2010) “Conviction” is a bit of a “I can’t make up my mind about it” film.  It has its great moments, its good moments and its not so good moments.  Still, the impact of the story is there and the cast does a tremendous job of giving the audience a real sense of the time. The film is supposed to be about the story of Betty Anne Waters, a rural housewife with a brother in jail for a crime that he didn’t commit.  In the early 1980s, Kenny Waters was convicted of brutally stabbing and murdering a neighborhood woman.  The always close relationship between Betty Anne and Kenny provides for some tear-jerker moments.  It also is the basis for the film’s title – Conviction.  Betty Anne is determined to prove Kenny’s innocence and right a terrible injustice. I’ll admit that the story does ...

Thelma & Louise (20th Anniversary) (1991) When we think of Ridley Scott productions we think of “Blade Runner” and “Alien.”  But Scott also made a name for himself with 1991’s cinematic female adventure, “Thelma & Louise.”  Many have viewed this film as a turning point for women in cinema.  Still, there are others that insist that “Thelma & Louise” does nothing but bow to the whims of men.  You can decide for yourselves. “Thelma & Louise” brings together two powerful actresses in roles that are typically given to men.  Susan Sarandon and Geena Davis give performances that define a decade.  The transformation of these women that takes place over the course of the film is strong and solidly formed. Geena Davis stars as Thelma, a chaotic, busy with nowhere to go woman with a deadbeat husband.  Susan Sarandon is Louise, an uptight career waitress that is remarkably organized.  ...
