  • Review: Poseidon

    Review: Poseidon

    Rating: 2 out of 5

    Short version: Do yourself a favor and rent the orginal version.

    The cast of PoseidonBased on how Poseidon, the remake of the 1972 disaster-film classic The Poseidon Adventure is doing at the box office, I’d say that most people are going to agree with my review. I’ll only touch briefly on the nausea that the creation of yet another movie remake brings to me, and here, once again with good reason.

    For those of you young ‘uns, The Poseidon Adventure was released way back in 1972, and it was one in a string of very successful disaster-themed movies produced by Irwin Allen. It starred Gene Hackman in his prime and a handful of other actors who were popular at the time, including Ernest Borgnine, Stella Stevens and Shelley Winters. The plot was simple: Rogue wave flips ocean liner and a small group of folks try to survive by making their way to the bottom (now top) of the ship, hoping to be rescued.

    Review: Greg Behrendt Is Uncool


    2.5 out of 5

    Short version: Although you might expect that people in their forties would find this funny, it will probably be funnier to folks in their twenties to whom forty seems infinitely far away.

    Greg Behrendt is UncoolNow I’m sure I haven’t lost my sense of humor because I just watched a comedian parody President Bush and although I voted for him I found it laugh-out-loud funny.

    This DVD, not so much.

    “But why are you rating it 2.5 stars?” you may ask… Basically because upon a second viewing it did elicit a few chuckles and when I step back and look at it, I imagine that if I was in my early to mid 20′s I might actually find his routine a lot funnier.

  • Review: Underworld: Evolution

    Review: Underworld: Evolution

    Rating: 2 out of 5

    Short version: Convoluted and confusing, but with the coolest looking vampire I’ve ever seen on screen.

    underworld-evolution-thumb.jpgAlthough the first Underworld was not a cinematic opus, it was actually kind of a fun popcorn movie. Kate Beckinsale was fairly impressive in the first film as a female action hero, and she had her moments in Underworld: Evolution as well, although here I thought she got lost in the muddle that was the script and served more as eye candy (yeah, yeah I know, that’s why she was hired) than an effective heroine.

  • Review: Fantastic Four

    Review: Fantastic Four

    By Vic Holtreman


    2 out of 5

    Short version: You’ll forget about this terribly miscast movie (that is *almost* made bearable by Michael Chiklis and Chris Evans) as soon as you leave the theater.

    Jessica Alba as Susan StormIn this post about the Fantastic Four movie, I said:

    It’s the first one [trailer] that actually shows the tiniest bit of depth as opposed to a low cleavage, snappy dialogue, special effects bonanza of a movie.

    I’m here to tell you that the “tiniest bit” is all you’re going to get in Fantastic Four as far as depth of character. On the bright side, Michael Chiklis (as “The Thing”/Ben Grimm) and Chris Evans (as Johnny Storm) both do a great job individually and as an ever-arguing pair. On the other hand, when the best performance in a movie comes from the off-screen puppeteers manipulating a latex mask, you know you’re in trouble.

    I suppose I should get to a few details about the movie…
