Trolls is one of those half-baked animated features that might feature nice animation, it’s something that’s probably geared more towards kids and has little to offer their parents; on the plus side, the voice acting wasn’t bad.
In Time is a movie that had so much but squandered a great idea with a half-baked screenplay, thinly written characters and a plot that is more in line with a Bonnie & Clyde/Robin Hood story than anything else. Justin Timberlake isn’t bad as the main lead while Amanda Seyfried looks good but her character isn’t fully developed, The biggest asset the movie does have going for it is Roger Deakins cinematography, otherwise this is more or less an entertaining movie, but that’s about it.
While Friends with Benefits doesn’t have the same kind of magic or quirkiness of Easy A, it’s still worthwhile to check out. Timberlake and Kunis share on-screen chemistry and even though the script embraces the same clichés it opening mocked early on, I still found the film to be funny. As far as the Blu-ray is concerned, the video/audio are good and the features, save for the features, are unremarkable.
By no means is Bad Teacher a good film but Cameron Diaz, as well as Jason Segel for his limited part, gave it their best in spite of a script with few laughs and a flat plot that never really came to life. The Blu-ray itself has an OK set of features but good audio/video transfers. I suppose if you’re a fan of the movie, it might be worth checking out… but only via rental.
