interesting dramedy

I do disagree with the previous reviews for this film, it has an interesting premise and Charlize Theron is as watchable as ever. I know some people didn't like the ending but I thought it made sense and brought everything together.

Penny Dreadful: Series 1 Online DVD Rental

Enjoyable goth horror

Although it takes a little while to get going, once all the elements start coming together it moves a fair pace. It cleverly brings some new characters with literary classical characters like Victor Frankenstein and Dorian Gray. The real star is Eva Green who steals every scene she is in and although there are lots of sex and violence, there is nothing that anybody would find offensive. It definitely left me wanting to see the later series.

Enjoyable and slick

This is an enjoyable heist movie but the set up is definitely more entertaining than the final robbery. It doesn't quite have the zip of oceans eleven but better than the sequels.

Enjoyable poignent kids adventure

Your level of enjoyment may depend on your ability to suspend belief and accept all the coincidences that occur to bring both storylines together. The cast are great, especially Millicent Simmonds in the silent section from the twenties. Some may find it a hit cloying but it has a fantastical element I enjoyed.

Expected more

I really like Takashi Mike films, they are normally highly original and offer something different. This was okay but so generic, only offering glimpses of what he can offer in some of the fight sequences at the end.

Well acted but is there any more

I thought the acting was wonderful in this film, both actresses showing what can be done with interesting material but unfortunately it is just not funny anough. It tries too hard to be quirky and lost my interest as a result. There is a film called Edge of Seventeen which received less plaudits but is a much better film.

What's happened to Amy Schumer!

After Trainwreck I though Amy Schumer was going to add something different and edgy to film comedy but after Snatched and this I don't think so. It's generic, pointless and says nothing about body image of any note.

Truly awful

I understand that this is a children's film but I am sure they would be as bored as I was watching this mess of a film. The special effects are loud but manage to be uninteresting at the same time and the storyline meanders at best. Normally good actors appear to think they are in panto with performances that are just plain annoying. Avoid!

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Series 9 Online DVD Rental

As good as always!

Though it won't win over any new converts, fans will be happy that it continues where previous serious's left off. Larry David is as good as always, as the situations get worse so the laughs get louder.

One of the better recent comedies

Good to see that Hollywood can stil make decent comedies after recent attempts by the likes of Amy Schumer have bee n very disappointing. It has several genuinely hilarious set pieces and likeable performances, it may not be original but it has plenty of laughs.

Superb storytelling

This is what binge watching is for, a superb and disturbing tale of murder and abuse that builds to a superb climax. The acting, writing and directing are superb, it may be a bit wordy in places but see it through to the end.

Tense and entertaining

Taking a very simple premise, alien creatures hunt by sound so you have to stay quiet, the filmmakers have produced a truly tense movie experience. It helps that the family are very likeable and the acting excellent. There may be some slight plot holes but that does not effect the enjoyability factor. Highly recommended.

A real oddity

It's good that films like this can be made but I cannot think of a reason why it was made. Just watch Dave Allen sketches involving the church for much more laughs!

Watchable but lacks a spark

I have to say I knew nothing of the title character and his place amongst the civil rights battle and I am sure there is a better film out there. Chadwick Boseman and Josh Bad are great, its just avshame that the film did not serve them better. It ends up like a cross between To Kill A Mockingbird and Perry Mason, luckily the star power on screen saves it.

Dark fun

This may not be as satirical as it wants to be but it does have something to say about celebrity and the dangers of placing your life on the internet for everyone to see. Aubrey Plaza is great as the title character and shows that her great turn in Legion is no one off.
