Anvil! The Story of Anvil

Reviewed by Dr_Faulk

  • Currently 4/5 Stars.

There's something melancholy about a band who've spent thrirty years trying to get that "big break", but ultimately "Anvil" is about doing what you love for no other reason than love itself. Very enjoyable.

An splendidly lovely story. Women of all ages should love it. Prince Albert kicks ass.

Watchmen

85% Dross. There are brief moments of excellence that shine through, only because the source material is so good. But ultimately, Zack Snyder has ruined a perfectly good opportunity to adapt the seminal "Watchmen" to the big screen. Maybe worth a viewing for Rorschach...

Twilight

Featuring some of the most constipated acting ever committed to celluloid, this film almost crashed and burned for me. But it didn't, for some reason. Good enough for teenagers who fancy each other. Grown-ups need not apply.

Australia

Baz Lurman goes over the top once again in this includes-the-kitchen-sink epic. Lots of good moments, and probably the only film that made me want to visit Australia.

Perfectly acceptable TV movie detailing the antics of a remarkable enough group of people who escaped Nazi persecution. Action is fine. Acting is fine. But it never really brought me to the edge of my seat.

It's a Wonderful Life

Utter rubbish with a terribly misleading title - not a single fire-spewing zombie spider or killer cyborg cop to be found. Thankfully, most of the people involved in this film are dead or too old to stand in front of a camera. Go rent "Pineapple Express" instead.

I'm giving this an extra star because, while watching it, I was in a very 'beige' mood, and it hit on some ideas I found quite interesting and touching. In saying that, it's a slow burning film, pitched as an action disaster romp, of which there's very little. -1 star for the rest of you, and probably wait for the DVD.

Tough.

Quantum of Solace

Reviewed by Dr_Faulk

  • Currently 2/5 Stars.

Singularly boring. An overly simplistic and very poorly told story that cannot be saved by the *horribly* directed action sequences. In an age of so many successfully revived franchises and sequels, this is one of the biggest disappointments in cinema.

Rickey Gervais plays a dentist who can speak to the dead. Oh, and he also tries to be romantic. DNL (Did Not Laugh).

At one point, I my brain turned into a very sugary custard. I came home wanting to be a cheerleader. Love it for with it is, people. This knows what it does and it does it extremely well.
