Title=The Constant Gardener
Summary=Strong story with a great ending and a huge agenda. Unfortunately there’s style overload and both the agenda and the moral ending could have been toned down slightly to make for a much better movie. It also seriously needs an injection of pace to retain the audience attention. Weisz is superb in this, with Huston firing in another superb performance as a close second. A beautiful view of Africa in some of the scenes.
Title=Initial D on DVD
Summary=A good movie that really centres around the drift racing scenes which are superbly filmed and put together, there’s also great use made of the DTS track during the racing. The extras aren’t that strong and more around the cars and the racing would have been much better, and in English too.

Title=Freaked on DVD
Summary=A bizarre, absurd and funny movie. The DVD offering is packed with extras including an audio commentary and a full movie rehearsal, both very interesting to watch. The comedy is furious and off the wall, and a surprise to see from Alex Winter. Great performances from Randy Quaid and Keanu Reeves.

I loved The Muppets when I was a little kid. Man I would watch them every chance I had. The first couple of films still make me laugh like an idiot whenever I catch them on TV some night. Good times. The the muppets have lost a lot of their … [Read More]
