  • Planet of the Apes 2001

    ★★ Watched 29 Jul, 2014

    At least it wasn't shot for shot remake, more of re-imagining.
    It wasn't terrible and kept my interest for the running time but didn't do any special or different. It is strange blend of all the previously 'Apes' films with a bits The Defiant One and numbers westerns thrown in.
    Wahlberg is very bland , Roth plays scared snarling ape, Bonham-Carter plays pouting ( weirdly sensual) ape and random black actors play gorillas. The look and feel is very Burton but the running jump apes along with inclusion of a chimp really didn't work for me.

  • 22 Jump Street 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Jul, 2014

    I had so much fun with this. Its is silly , predictable , some of same jokes, themes & actions. The whole film breaks the 4th wall, takes a few swings at Hollywood and doesn't give a fuck. Great opening that it builds on, the chemistry is still there, Jillian Bell is awesome in a small role. Stand out scenes for me were the Tripping scene and when ever Deputy Chief Hardy was on screen. I cried with laughter at least 4 times, even the credits were funny.

  • Lake Placid 1999

    ★★★½ Watched 15 Oct, 2013

    A really fun throwback to the 'Jaws' monster era. The chemistry between the main characters works , one-liners are funny and the effects still look fine.
