The Fifth Element is a mixed bag of a film with some great flare and style but then you add in Chris Tucker and his obnoxious character to balance all that good out. On the plus side, Gary Oldman, as outlandish as his character is, is a lot of fun to watch and Milla Jovovich provides a nice spark.

Zoolander No. 2 might’ve had good intentions behind the camera for Ben Stiller and its cast, but the jokes rarely landed leaving us with the stupidity of the original without any of comedy. I can’t say I had a displeasured experience while watching, merely indifference and counting down the time until it would finally end.

It’s not too hard to see why Survivor went direct-to-video and in spite of the best efforts of a (mostly) respectable cast and some decent direction from the director, the screenplay needed a few more passes to iron out the plot and, in particular, the characters who are laughably thinly written and just laughable all around. This movie is destined for the dump bin and with a few cuts, will air on Spike TV one day.

Resident Evil: Retribution is a lazy movie and one that despite a $65 million budget, felt so much smaller as the cast are contained more or less in one location (given Tokyo, Moscow and NYC were all computer simulations) but even so, situations are created that make no sense and you have characters who make decisions which not only defy logic but would’ve kept them out of unnecessary fights.

The Three Musketeers isn’t a great or even innovative movie but still somewhat entertaining. Director Paul W.S. Anderson “borrows” different styles done in better movies yet it still works while the cast is well done and mostly give adequate performances even if some of the characters are paper thin. As it stands, if you’re not a stickler for the source material, you might get something out of the movie; otherwise you’d be better off skipping.

Faces in the Crowd hardly breaks new ground in the genre, but it has a few things going for it Milla Jovovich turns in a good performance, the mystery aspects are at least compelling and what writer/director Magnat does by putting the audience in the main character’s mindset is unique and effective. The Blu-ray itself is light in features but is strong with the audio and video transfers.

Stone had the talent to be a special movie but it didn’t quite measure up especially with the screenplay. De Niro himself is sadly just OK in his role while Norton, as usual, excels playing a tormented character who you’re not exactly sure what to make of. You might find this to be good as a weekday rental otherwise wait to check it out on HBO in a year or so.
