Pitch Black is a movie I just could not get in to, be it the sloppy/choppy quick editing, weird image stretching effects that were overly employed in the 1990s or the thin story and characters, it’s a film that has garnered plenty of fans.
on the surface Transcendence had plenty going for it but thanks to an apparently butchered script and a novice director, it turned something that could’ve been memorable into a laborious and tepid bore of a film. The cast is mostly wasted from the Depp’s malaise and supporting characters who are one dimensional and unmemorable while a veteran like Morgan Freeman is wasted and had a character who could’ve been cut.
The Hit List is a little better than I had expected going in but at the same time, it is just another direct-to-video flick with a Blu-ray release that has no features and good but unremarkable video and audio transfers. If you like Cuba Gooding Jr. and/or Cole Hauser and have 90-minutes to spare on Friday or Saturday night, then you might take a chance with this one once it comes down in price.
