Silver Linings Playbook “Scores On Doors”

SCORES ON DOORS

Wow! What an honest, refreshing dark take on the rom-com, fabulously directed
by David O. Russell (The Fighter), with great cinematography & great acting, the
young Lawrence facing off against veteran De Niro in one scene had me purring.

With on screen chemistry between Cooper & Lawrence rivaling that of
Bogart & Bacall and old timers De Niro & Weaver both producing the goods
Silver Linings Playbook is a wonderful movie that is emotionally funny,
sometimes stressful but by the time the end credits role I guarantee you will
be grinning from ear to ear – 8.5/10

This Means War “Mini-Review”

DIRECTOR
McG
CAST
Tom Hardy, Chris Pine
Reese Witherspoon, Chelsea Handler
Abigail Spencer

Two CIA Agents Foster (Pine) & Henson (Hardy)
who are also best friends begin dating the same
woman Scott (Witherspoon), to win the girl both
break protocol and use the agencies technology
to sabotage each others dates, all this whilst
trying to bring the bad guys to justice.

I like McG as a movies director his movies
always have lots of action, high on thrills
and usually have a great soundtrack, take
CHARLIE ANGELS for example – a good
quality movie that has the lot – so I must ask
the question WHAT WAS HE THINKING
when taking on this pile of movie rubbish?

Reese Witherspoon I can accept in this type
of movie but why TOM “RocknRolla” HARDY the
guys who’s appeared in Bronson, Inception and
Warrior would want to appear in this juvenile,
predictable & pointless rom-com is beyond me.

OVERALL
I would highly recommend anyone who reads
this mini-review TO AVOID this movie.
The action scenes are dreadful, McG’s direction
is down right lazy and the dialogue is some of
the worst I have witnessed in a movie for a
long time – & also Chelsea Handler is in it!
4.5/10

21 Jump Street “Mini-Review”

DIRECTED
Phil Lord and Chris Miller
CAST
Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill
Brie Larson, Ice Cube, Dave Franco
Ellie Kemper, Rob Riggle

Schmidt and Jenko are former classmates
who meet once more at a police academy.
The two help each other graduate & become
partners and assigned to park duty.

One day on the job and desperate to get some
real action they attempt to arrest a local
drug gang – well I did say attempt and for
Schmidt (Hill) and Jenko (Tatum) it all goes
terribly, yet comically wrong.

The movie 21 Jump Street was based on the
late 80’s TV show of the same name that
starred Johnny Depp and ran for 5 seasons.

The talented Jonah Hill not only starred
in this movie but also co-wrote the script.

The pairing of Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum
seemed to produce good onscreen chemistry, and
seemed to be a great fit for their respective roles.

There was also some neat little roles for the likes
of Ice Cube (Ghosts of Mars) and the likeable
Rob Riggle (The Other Guys) both impressed.

OVERALL
21 Jump Street
is a better than average
comedy, with a clever witty script and a
fabulous movie soundtrack, well worth a
trip to your local theatre.
7.5/10
