Alvin And The Chipmunks 3: Chipwrecked (2011) Snooze alert.  That’s right, here is the third installment in the Chipmunk series.  Funny enough, it wasn’t until I thought about the film (as much as that is possible) after it had ended that I even remembered that this was the third in the series and not simply a sequel to the first.  That is how unforgettable these films are.  As beloved childhood characters I expected more care to be taken with the series. The Smurfs were given great treatment when it came to its feature film debut.  However, the Chipmunks seem to have been sluffed off as just a cash cow.  Given the reception of each Chipmunks film I am surprised that they keep making them.  It seems that it would be costing them money. Sufficed it to say, there are plenty of terrible and mediocre critic and fan reviews of ...

Angels Crest (2011) “Angels Crest” is another independent feature that longs to be something more than what comes across in the end.  The film has some merits, but most of it is “been there, done that.” The film is based on a novel, not exactly best-selling from what I’ve found.  Nevertheless, the adaptation to film is one of the big concerns for those that have read the book.  Not having read the book I cannot comment on this notion, but be forewarned. “Angels Crest” is a simple story.  A 3 year-old boy disappears in the middle of a blizzard after being left in the truck alone for 15 to 20 minutes by his father who goes in search of a deer.  A massive hunt for the boy ensues, only to find him the next morning frozen to death.  This is tough to pull off because ...

Descendants, The (2011) So, “The Descendants” was nominated for best picture and lost out to “The Artist.”  Barring the Academy’s choice of a film that was basically and independent, did “The Descendants” deserve the Best Picture award?  Personally, I think it beat out “The Artist” but I don’t think it is really worthy of being award the honor.  Then again, there are some other films that hold the distinguished award that shouldn’t have been made in the first place. “The Descendants” offers us viewers a look at a family in Oahu who are dealing with loss, betrayal, growing up and facing the future.  George Clooney portrays Matt King, a real estate lawyer on the island who when the film opens is dealing with his wife’s boating accident, leaving her in a permanent coma. Matt, essentially a workaholic, must begin to be a father to his ...

Melancholia (2011) “Melancholia” is an easy one to predict.  It is a clear-cut example of an artistic filmmaking piece tailored toward the filmmaker himself and toward to the general filmmaking population.  It has little impact on the general film-going population.  Sadly, many will not understand this film more than just its superficial side, simply tossing the film away. But “Melancholia” is so much more than just an end of the world epic.  It contains truth, emotions and awe-inspiring art design.  I’m not say that I myself absolutely loved this film.  I still think that it more of a director’s ego boost.  I’m not saying that filmmakers should predicate everything on making films than are drones just to appease the masses.  However, in that sense, this film will never see itself elevated to more than just a top-notch artistic independent film. I am not going ...

Three Musketeers, The (3D/2D) (2011) The industry felt as thought it were time for another three musketeers revival.  Forgetting about the distant past, Disney created a film in the 90s with Kiefer Sutherland, Oliver Platt, Charlie Sheen, et. al.  In 2000, our resident bad-guy doctor on “Grey’s Anatomy,” Justin Chambers in addition to Mena Suvari starred in Universal’s adaptation “The Musketeers.”  Summit has now gotten in on the action and created an offspring of what would happen if the previous two films were to spawn. “The Three Musketeers” is predictable from beginning to end.  In fact, I was floored by the amount of dialogue in the opening that was carbon copy that of the Disney version.  I simply couldn’t believe.  You could literally take the pages of the Disney version and apply the new actors and come up with the first act of this new musketeers’ ...
