Peppermint is by no means perfect but it was the perfect action vehicle for Jennifer Garner who gets back to her kick ass routes dating back to the Alias TV series. Here the fights are brutal and hard-hitting and the performances are good enough to make an entertaining action yarn.

The plot for Men, Woman & Children does get heavy-handed towards the end and Garner’s character is more caricature than anything, but despite its flaws, and even though this is hardly Reitman’s strongest film, it’s still a job well done.

Draft Day isn’t a great movie and probably ranks in the bottom half of sports films, but there’s some entertainment value and Kevin Costner helps to elevate the material far beyond what it deserves. The direction is at least interesting by Ivan Reitman and the supporting cast, albeit not well utilized, is respectable.

Catch Me If You Can is a cool and energetic crime-drama featuring great performances, a fascinating main character, an amazing score and excellent direction that holds up quite well today. The Blu-ray itself has some basic but informative features while the audio/video transfers make this a worthy upgrade over the DVD version.

Arthur is certainly a fun little romp, but ultimately, I feel a lot of people will dismiss it simply because it’s a remake and it stars Russell Brand. While maybe not a purchase, I’d say give it a rent. The Blu-ray itself doesn’t have much in the features department but the audio and video are both good.

Valentine’s Day may be a two-hour cliché but at the same time it’s fairly harmless and might please some people out there, but for me, I like my romantic-comedies to have, oh I don’t know, a little comedy thrown in there. I know… that’s a silly thing to expect. The Blu-ray itself is also a disappointment with a merely passable video transfer, a decent audio track and some subpar extras, most of which are exclusives.

As a comic book fan, in general, I found Elektra to be one of the most mundane and average comic book movie ever. There’s nothing really memorable, such as an action sequence, nor the performance from the lovely Jennifer Garner. However, Elektra does make a good time-waster and a film you don’t have to think about… at all.

I’ve never really been a fan of “The Office”, either the British or the American version. I just never really “got” the show and the advertisements never appealed to me. Everyone I know says how great the show is, but I just don’t have the free time to watch the show in whatever season it’s in at this current time. Ricky Gervais tries yet again to break into American audience’s hearts with his latest farce, The Invention of Lying. Sadly though, like his past films, the movie isn’t funny […]

Ricky Gervais, creator of the British “The Office” – which in turn produced the hilarious American version – continues his minor assault into cinemas. Following a supporting role in 2008’s Ghost Town, he takes front and center stage in this clever philosophical comedy which unfortunately kind of runs out of steam…
