Compared to the first, this sequel is seriously lacking awesome and likeable characters (actors). Eva Green can fuck off for all I care. Bitch is punch-worthy as hell and always plays the same fucking annoying characters! Sullivan Stapleton is also the worst choice for a strong general type character. Bah.
On top of that, there's very few of those "FUCK-YEAH!" moments I came to love from the original.
Nonetheless, it's still very enjoyable and very violent CGI porn.
Watch it in 3D.
It's the first film since Avatar that honours itself by bathing in glorious looking 3D effects.

Dead End focusses on a family who are travelling on Christmas eve. They have been taking the same route for 20 years, but on this occasion, the father decides to take a different one. Big mistake! From then on, nothing goes right.
It's a little hard to take the characters seriously as they seem to overact (and overact) to everything.
You might not think that a low-budget picture with this kind of cast could be scary…

It's no secret that some of the best horror movies of the recent past have been independent productions. American Mary is no exception.
Katherine Isabelle has star quality. It is simply impossible to take your eyes off her as she's absolutely captivating.
First in Ginger Snaps, and now this.
She turns in a wonderful performance as Mary Mason, a talented surgical resident who finds a rather unusual opportunity to use her medical abilities.

The aftermath of some war - I realise that might not be very descriptive, but I had a hard time figuring out where or even when this was supposed to take place. The future perhaps? - is that young girls are forced into prostitution. Angel witnesses her sister being murdered with her own eyes, and is then taken to one of these brothels, but due to being mute, is set about turning kidnapped women into junkie prostitutes.…
While we can't necessarily expect a film to be truly unique anymore, we still like to see old themes with a fresh twist. I'd say Lovely Molly has a bit of both.
The premise is not new, but it's certainly interesting. There's some disturbing imagery towards the end of the film, and a scene that had me leaning forward in the dark, squinting, just to be sure I was truly seeing this. But…

All the boys may love Mandy Lane but all the boys won't love this film.
Most boys would probably say that Amber Heard is one of the most stunningly beautiful actresses out there and you could potentially watch this film with the sound turned off and still fully enjoy it.
But people such as myself, people who might not be such a big fan of the blonde, will most likely still agree with the first…
I perfectly understand why most people say it's bad, but I don't understand the direct hate.
Sure, it's written and filmed with the elegance of an elephant, but it's not downright terrible. I think I spotted some pretty good ideas in between all the bad ones.
I feel like the biggest problem here is the misuse of such a great cast.
Justine Waddell is pretty boring. Christopher Plummer is rather wasted. Jonny Lee Miller looks and acts like he doesn't…
This is probably the film I feel most nostalgic about. It is very easy to spend the entire film pointing out bad edits and plot holes, but no matter how objective I try to be, I just can't.
Jurassic Park has a certain sense of wonder and awe about it that most adventures lack.
The story is not devoid of intelligent conversation, the characters are likeable, and the soundtrack is simply amazing. But that the computer animation still looks great…
There was a point while watching Cube 2 that I found myself thinking it was half as good as the original, and therefore it deserved half the rating I gave Cube. Which would have been 2½ stars. I was even ready to up my rating to 3 stars.
But much like any "A Nightmare On Elm Street" or "Friday The 13th" sequel, this is one of those continuations where I find myself wondering if the people who made the sequel…
