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 ...

I Am Number Four (2011) "I Am Number Four" is D.J. Caruso's latest sci-fi/action/suspense/thriller.  With Caruso's career his products have been hit or miss.  "Disturbia" was a pleasant surprise.  Though the plot was fairly predictable, especially given that it was based on Hitchcock's "Rear Window."  Then "Taking Lives" fell flat.  "Eagle Eye" was more of a mixed bag, remarked as brilliant by some and horrible by others. "I Am Number Four" lands more in league with "Eagle Eye."  Teenagers will likely find the film to be exciting.  However, the film does fall prey to incredibly slow first and second acts.  Every time it seems as if the action is going to break out on screen the reigns are pulled in and the scene falls flat on its face.  This continues until the climatic battle in the final 20 minutes or so, when it appears that producer ...

Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows Part 1 (2010) By this point, a decade after the initial film’s release, we have come to understand how successful and how undeniable the Harry Potter saga has come to be in our culture.  No other film franchise has been able to reach the level of success that Harry Potter has had.  Other studios have tried with films such as “Percy Jackson.”  Even the “Twilight” series has failed to capture the audience that Harry Potter has. From the very first film, through the last to be sure, the cast of these films has brought us to the edge of our seats.  Using our imaginations while reading the books was terrific, but it is great to see them acted out for us.  It is like reading Shakespeare and then watching the Shakespearian play.  At the same time it is also true from the first film ...

Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader (2010) Growing up, the CS Lewis Narnia novels were among my favorites.  I was quite pleased with the first and second Narnia films, the first more than the second.  However, when it comes to the third, the film has lost its since of adventure and fantasy.  But the bigger problem with “Voyage Of The Dawn Treader” is the additions made to the film versus the book. With the “Harry Potter” series it is all about what to leave out of the film versus the book.  With this third Narnia film it is the opposite.  The writers have added many elements to try and make the film for adventurous, but they weren’t needed. At the end of the second film we learn that Susan And Peter have grown up and learned all they can from the land and won’t be returning again.  They make ...

Tron: Legacy (3D/2D) (2010) Note: This review is based on the disc contained in the 5-disc “Tron: Legacy”/“Tron” Blu-ray package. I don’t know about you but I was fairly nervous when the studio announced that a sequel to “Tron” would be released in 2010.  I pretty much knew what to expect when it came to the visuals.  The studio would pull out all the stops and create a digital grid worthy of a 2010 sequel.  However, what would the story be like?  Would the characters be complete?  How would the first and second movie tie together?  Would there be a tie?  Would this be yet another crash and burn sequel?  The questions are endless.  However, when I sat down and viewed “Tron: Legacy” in 3D most of those worries disappeared. Disney has managed to pull off a sequel 30 years after the original that nicely ties ...
