Megamind Movie Review

Let me In Movie Review

There ought to be a law against what Hollywood is doing to the foreign film market.  Seriously.  It certainly is an artistic travesty to think or assume that just because a film, such as Tomas Alfredson’s Let the Right One In, is presented in a foreign language...

Saw 3D Director: Kevin Greutert
Writer
: Patrick Melton, Marcus Dunstan
Cast: Tobin Bell; Betsy Russell; Costas Mandylor

Well, it isn’t a prequel, but if you seriously think that everything has been leading up to the wooden acting that plagues Saw 3D, then you are sadly mistaken.  Sure, you’ll get answers.  You’ll get gore.  The 3D - while largely silly - isn’t a complete loss either.  Hell, you even get Cary Elwes again…just don’t expect much in the way of Jigsaw.  Too bad.  He’s been part of the fun of the Saw franchise chronology because – for John Kramer – death was certainly not the end, but his lessoning appearance in the series is dully noted in this the supposed final installment.  Yet, in spite of it all, Saw 3D does have its moments of cutting-edge fun, just not enough to keep the franchise propelling itself forward.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest Movie ReviewDirector: Daniel Alfredson
Writer: Jonas Frykberg
Cast:Noomi Rapace; Michael Nyqvist; Lena Endre

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest, The final movie based on Stieg Larsson’s wildly popular Millennium Trilogy, sadly rides off, not into a glorious sunset to bask in the proud achievement of having wrapped up the series on a high note, but rather into a hospital Intensive Care Unit to lick its bedsores. Director Daniel Alfredson and screenwriter Jonas Frykberg (who also collaborated on the second installment) should have been reminded to change the bed sheets and occasionally roll this yawner over.
