Your guide to some of the new releases that are out this week. PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: DEAD MEN TELL NO TALES Supposedly this is the last film in the franchise, the fifth film based on a freaking amusement park ride in Disneyland. Don’t get me wrong, these films have been fun from the get-go but after five of them, it has become a little long-in-the-tooth to see Captain Jack Sparrow continually get into trouble, fumble his way through problems for two hours only to have it all work out in the end. This time Sparrow must once again deal […]Read On »

In the near-future world of ALMOST HUMAN, Fox Mondays at 8 PM, it is mandated that all police officers have android partners. However, there’s something special about Dorian (Michael Ealy), the android partner of Detective John Kennex (Karl Urban) – Dorian has emotions. Dorian also has a very concerned and inventive computer scientist advocating on his behalf, one Rudy Lom, played by Mackenzie Crook. Crook got his onscreen start as The Man in 1996’s THE MAN WHO FELL IN LOVE WITH A TRAFFIC CONE.

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Taylor Kitsch, Alexander Skarsgard, Brooklyn Decker, Liam Neeson, Rihanna, Jesse Plemons, Gregory D. Gadson Writers: Erich Hoeber & Jon Hoeber, based on the Hasbro game Director: Peter Berg Distributor: Universal Pictures Release Date: May 18, 2012 There is nothing wrong in basing a movie on a board game or a toy, or even an amusement park ride (for example, PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN). For one thing, it’s been done many times before by now, so there’s no reason to attack BATTLESHIP to be the latest in this line. There is something a little startling in BATTLESHIP’s physical […]Read On »

Many people absolutely hates the fourth installment of the venerable franchise featuring quirky pirate Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp). Yet, I didn’t understand what all the fuss was about. I thoroughly enjoyed ON STRANGER TIDES, which brought the series back […]Read On »

Rating: PG-13 Stars: Johnny Depp, Peneolpe Cruz, Geoffrey Rush, Ian McShane Writer: Screenplay by Ted Elliott & Terry Rossio, Characters by Ted Elliott, Terry Rossio, Stuart Beattie,Jay Wolpert Director: Rob Marshall Distributor: Walt Disney Pictures Release Date: May 20, 2011 PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN is a film series that I think could probably just keep going like the Energizer Bunny. People didn’t react as kind to the last couple of PIRATES sequels as well as they did the first film though. Complaints concerning films two and three (DEAD MAN’S CHEST and AT WORLD’S END)were that there were too many storylines […]Read On »
