Ted Review

Assuredly, fans of Family Guy will find enjoyment in Ted, as it is co-written and directed by Seth McFarlane. I, myself, am about, oh, a 75 % fan of Family Guy. It’s generally funny, but sometimes I feel like the jokes are just for Seth, and no one else. That being said, Ted is still as broad in it’s comedy and often low brow, but perhaps there are less jokes that require you to be in Seth’s head.

Prometheus Review

Expectations. Sometimes expectations has much to do with how we feel about a film. And Prometheus, oh, how we have been given expectations about you. But if that were all that troubled us, one could perhaps wrestle our way past it. But to be given such a visually beautiful film, one that asks grand questions, one with all the elements needed for brilliance, and still come out with that empty feeling? Well, there’s more going on here than mere expectation.

Safe Review

I like Jason Statham, it’s no secret. I’ve championed the Crank movies enough, particularly Crank 2, for their unique style and near comic book bending of reality. Even the Transporter movies have their action genre delights. However, Safe, even with its’ old school action set up and play, doesn’t have the inventiveness or even the chops of director team Neveldine and Taylor to save it.
