Original Sin (2001) "Original Sin" is the sensual film that Angelina Jolie lovers just adore.  Aside from that, the film is actually decent.  It has its intriguing moments and an outcome that is good once.  That inherently is the problem with the film for enthusiasts. "Original Sin" is not really repeatable.  The unfolding of the events and the resolution are good once.  After that, there is nothing to keep you in your seat.  During the first pass there were numerous tedious moments that should have been excised or at least shortened.  So imagine trying to sit through the film again once all the mystery has been unraveled.  Sure this is true of any film.  However, other repeatable films have an entertaining quality that allows you to watch it over again.  This film is missing that repeatable quality. Antonio Banderas and Angelina Jolie star as lovers ...

Red Riding Hood (Alternate Cut) (2011) "Oh my, grandmother what big teeth you have."  "Red Riding Hood" is extremely loosely based on the classic tale of little red riding hood.  And when I say extremely loosely based, that is an understatement.  Take away the red cloak and the grandmother and all we have is a "Twilight" spin-off about a village being attacked by a werewolf. This isn't surprising given that the film is directed by "Twilight" director Catherine Hardwicke.  "Red Riding Hood" fails so miserably it is hard to see how it was ever released.  The story was an easy pitch to the studio I'm sure.  But, where this film fails is its story, the writing, the casting, the acting and everything in between. If there is any saving grace to the film it would have to be Amanda Seyfried.  She is one of the more talented young ...

Hall Pass (Enlarged Edition) (2011) It is clear from the outset that "Hall Pass" is a "Hangover" spin-off.  And as with al Farrelly Brothers' films since their post-early days, the film is a big flop.  I just couldn't believe the lack of laughs coming my way.  I expected, and I'm sure most of you did as well, a bunch more hilarity. Of course I don't speak for everyone, but the consensus I found is that "Hall Pass" is unfunny.  You may chuckle here or there, but that isn't a good sign for a comedy.  The film is undeveloped and doesn't even approach the beginnings of the film's potential. Owen Wilson and Jason Sudeikis star as friends Rick and Fred.  They are middle-aged men who never grew-up.  They are each married but only have their heads turned by other women.  I'm sorry, but are you telling me that ...

Drive Angry (3D/2D) (2011) "Drive Angry" was not the huge success that it set out to be.  However, based on this release, the home video market might just be the ticket for "Drive Angry" to gain popularity.  More accurately, "Drive Angry" in 3D may be the ticket 3D needs to convince consumers to invest in the technology. The plot of "Drive Angry" is fairly weak.  There is a good story in there somewhere, but it buried amidst undeveloped characters and far too many subplots, which by the way never get answered.  That is my pet peeve when it comes to films.  If a storyline is introduced then it better be addressed and resolved by the end. In "Drive Angry" Milton is out for revenge for the brutal death of his daughter and son-in-law.  At the same time he is trying to rescue his granddaughter.  There is ...

Sanctum (2011) “Sanctum” is really, really easy to explain.  Think “127 Hours,” but turned Hollywood.  “Sanctum” is like someone in Hollywood said, “we need something to compete with ‘127 Hours,’ what other incredible life stories are out there?” The film is based loosely on Andrew Wight’s real life and death situation.  Unfortunately, Hollywood has taken its liberties.  It is surprising to see that Wight was a co-writer and producer of the film.  “Sanctum” has a good movie in it, but Hollywood’s pizzazz has taken its toll.  The film would have been much better had it just remained true to the original story and exaggerated a great deal. Frank McGuire is a nomad cave diver.  He dives for the thrill, adventure and education.  Caves are the last places on earth that have yet to be explored.  This isn’t exactly true, but we’ll go with it.  ...
