Shazam might not be a top tiered superhero movie and not near my personal top even amongst DC’s lineup, but it is still a lot of fun and Zachary Levi embodies the role so well and can’t wait to see what he and director Sandberg have in store.
Dead Trigger is one terrible movie and one added to the list of bad video game adaptations. The acting is pretty bad but worse, just a mess of a production as a whole; no wonder this sat on the shelf for a couple of years.
Space Station is a fascinating and up-close look at the ISS and although it’s not terribly in-depth and likely was an amazing experience seeing it in an IMAX theater and in 3D, this is still worth checking out.
Silent Hill is certainly one of the better video game adaptations, and while that might not say much considering how much crap has been out there, I will say there are some genuinely good things about this one.
Escape Plan: The Extractors, and this might be faint praise, is at least better than the previous installment if only that Sylvester Stallone seem like he was the star. As it is, there is some fun entertainment value to the third entry.
The Poison Rose is just another failure in John Travolta’s ever fading career, and I say that with no glee or happiness as he has shown to be a fantastic actor so I can only hope a Tarantino or Nolan might re-vitalize his career one more time.
The Green Inferno certainly has its moments and not entirely unwatchable, but it does have many of the staples of an Eli Roth film, most notable wholly unlikeable characters, though I did enjoy Lorenza Izzo’s performance.
The Haunting of Sharon Tate was just a bad idea from the beginning and even if it didn’t poorly exploit the real life tragedy by interjecting an almost fantasy element, the technical aspects were pretty bad as well.
Batman vs. Teenage Mutant Turtles is a great mash-up for any fan but as someone who grew up in the late 80s and early 90s, this was a lot of fun even if the Turtles’ designs weren’t my favorite, but was able to ignore as the humor was on point.
The Entity to say the least is a unique and pretty graphic supernatural-thriller that features a brave performance from Barbara Hershey and although it’s far from perfect, definitely worth checking out.
Double Face is normally the kind of movie up my alley. The murder-mystery is a bit uneven with the pacing and editing, but even so, I did like Klaus Kinski’s performance and it did at least keep my attention through the end.
A Vigilante had good intentions but thanks to the slow and awkward delivery of a familiar story, that it was tough to sit through but for the wrong reasons. The only redeeming value I could find was Olivia Wilde’s emotional performance.
