TOMORROWLAND Doesn’t Quite Launch Into Orbit

E-mail Print PDF
Frankly, I doubt that Disney’s Tomorrowland has ever struck anyone as a great jumping off point for a movie. A ride like Space Mountain certainly makes sense, but a project about the plaza on which it’s located...? The Tomorrowland movie is a curious experiment that emphasizes mystery as it slowly reveals its grand...

Big New Releases!

Blackhat - Michael Mann is a well-regarded director famous for titles like Collateral, The Insider and Heat, but his latest big-budget effort flopped at theaters. It tells the tale of Hong Kong and US agents using a convicted computer-genius to help them hunt down an international cyber-hacking ring.

Well, it’s hard to imagine another action film of this or any year in recent memory topping the adrenaline-pumping, motor-charged, post-apocalyptic world of Mad Max: Fury Road. Some 30 years after the last movie featuring the character, everything has been updated and to some extent reinvented. Regardless, the end result is just as strong - it’s a nitro-charged thrill ride.

That’s not to say that director George Miller (Mad Max, The Road Warrior, and curiously enough, Babe: Pig in the City) hasn’t thrown a few new wrinkles into the mix. This is essentially a two hour chase that begins mere seconds after the opening...

‘Hot Pursuit’ lacks comedic sizzle

Rating «« out of 4 stars

Here’s a rather unfortunate situation. While every cast member of the new comedy Hot Pursuit is funny, the end result is a mediocre collection of hit-and-miss gags. It delivers a few chuckles during its short running time, but is the type of film that will be completely forgotten when you arrive back home.

Cooper (Reese Witherspoon) is a stiff and officious cop assigned with providing police protection to a man testifying in a high profile drug-trade trial. When mysterious mercenaries show up and fire rounds, Cooper escapes with the witness’ wife, Daniella (Sofia Vergara). The two heroines go it alone when they learn that they may be the targets of not...
