While I don’t really have a problem with CBS and their reboot of Hawaii Five-0 but MacGyver is one that really doesn’t work both in terms of its style and the performances, most notable Lucas Till who just doesn’t look quite right in the role.
The Osiris Child: Science Fiction Volume One actually is a half-decent enough indie sci-fi flick, although I’m not a fan of these multi-parters where we may not know the entire story will be wrapped up. The performances are pretty good, though, and this is probably worthy of a rental.
Red Dawn wasn’t an awful movie and even though the cast, Hemsworth especially, to their best with what they were given, it’s one of those movies that you will forget a day after seeing it. It’s not so bad it’s good and it’s not so good that you’ll want to boast about it to friends or family. I’m not entirely against remakes particularly if it’s remaking something that wasn’t that great to begin with but make it worthwhile and there the filmmakers failed the most.
Immortals actually isn’t too bad of a movie. It’s got some good action scenes, the style director Tarsem employs is at least a little different from those that have come before and the acting is fairly adequate as well. The Blu-ray offers up some decent features and the audio and video transfers are both excellent.
