The Informer (15) – what’s it about? An FBI informer ends up going back to prison to help take down a crime boss and all doesn’t go according to plan.
I thought I’d go see this as where it looked alright and I have to say it was pretty good going, its not amazing but the story kept me entertained throughout. The story was well thought out and quite compelling, so it’s definitely got that behind it. It’s all about the crimes and prison life so if you find this interesting and like a bit of grit in your movies then you’ll probably like this one.
Zero Dark Thirty (DVD – 15) – what’s it about? The tale of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden.
I’m not sure with this one how much is truth or how much is just story written by the Americans to make the story into a good movie or make themselves look good. Yeah, its an ok movie, a bit of a CIA mystery with a bit of military and action thrown in. The story is interesting as where it focuses mainly around one agent and the people she comes into contact with, with them trying to find where he is located, which is not always done by pleasant means. Yeah if you like a good bit of America saving the day then probably check this out.
The Mask (DVD – 12) – what’s it about? Stanley is a bit of a doofus but ends up finding a magical mask which gives him cartoon like powers.
I thought I’d give this a re-watch as I haven’t seen it in years and yeah its goofy and funny and has a bit of a storyline to boot. Good old Jim Carrey – you know with most his movies what to expect – they are over the top, loud but pretty damn funny. Yep this is amusing but some is a little cringe worthy as it really makes you feel sorry for the guy. It is a little dated now but still is a pretty fun watch if you like cartoony type humour.
Zathura (DVD – PG) – what’s it about? Two brothers end up finding a magical game in the basement which sends them into space.
So this is the lesser known sequel to Jumanji, its very similar in that it’s about two siblings who find a game and it ends up sending all things chaotic until they complete it. This one though is a space adventure with aliens and robots rather than wild animals. Yeah its very similar in the feel and story but it is a good adventure film with some humour as well as a little suspense. Yep this is another one that is fun for all the family to watch, its not amazing but it is really enjoyable and a good little story, and if you or your young ones like sci-fi stuff then you’ll probably like this one.
