The Adjustment Bureau (2011)

It’s hard to pinpoint exactly why The Adjustment Bureau fails as a film. Based on the Philip K. Dick story “Adjustment Team”, George Nolfi’s adaptation is, from memory, quite faithful to the source material. But like many of the works of author Stephen King that have been translated to the screen, something goes awry. Perhaps it is the simple fact that some novels and short stories are not suited to celluloid treatment. But why is that?…

Battle: Los Angeles (2011)

My instinct with Battle: Los Angeles is to drive in the skewer, place it over an open fire and roast it until the skin begins to crackle. But I’m not going to do that. A film with a title of “Battle: Los Angeles” damn well better deliver a battle in Los Angeles. And that’s exactly what this film does. It offers no apologies for its by-the-numbers approach, and as an audience member with popcorn box and coke in hands, it delivers precisely what you’d expect…

Monsters (2010)

There is no doubt that Monsters has a most misleading (yet poetically relevant) title; anyone entering this film expecting to witness total CGI creature carnage will be sorely disappointed. Shot on a low budget, with many improvised scenes, Monsters refuses to show its hand until a stunning sequence towards the end,..

The Book Of Eli (2010)

I’m not immune to ridiculous twist endings, but The Book of Eli has a twist so preposterous, even avid fans of twist endings will scratch their eyeballs out in protest. A twist so outlandishly stupid, that even M. Night Shyamalan, the current champion of lame twist endings would shoot himself in the head just so he could later turn over in his grave…

The Adjustment Bureau

Sci-fi writer Philip K Dick has once again made it to the silver screen…loosely based on his short story, The Adjustment Bureau stars Matt Damon…

Moon (2009)

Comparisons to science-fiction classics such as Silent Running and 2001: A Space Odyssey are obvious – but even though the film borrows from not only those films’ concepts but their sensibilities as well, Moon exists in its’ own atmosphere. Key to the films’ success is Sam Rockwell, an actor that has consistently chosen interesting roles throughout his career…

Terminator Salvation (2009)

The first forty minutes of this film is extraordinarily good – so much so that I was reaching to take back the grenade I’d thrown at McG and offer a hand of gratitude. But the perfectly realised wasteland atmosphere, combined with the awesome hardware, is not enough to sustain the second half of the film. It is almost as if two directors were working on the movie, the first half being so out of synch with the second…
