Movies: Earth to Echo (PG), Hercules (12A), The Purge: Anarchy (15), Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (12A) and Odd Thomas (DVD – 15)

Earth to Echo (PG) – what’s it about? A town’s folk are being relocated due to the building of a motorway – strange things start to happen and a group of young lads set out on a journey on their last night together where they discover an extraterrestrial friend in the process!

Very cute – and funny – I found it pretty funny anyway – the kids do stuff that you kind of did or would have done in the situations – it’s a really nice family film – and it has an alien – so all good there...kinda like an ET story really.

Hercules (12A) – what’s it about? Hercules the demigod has completed his 12 labours and become a mercenary with the assistance of a group of warriors – he is hired by the king of Thrace to defeat a tyrant (no not that kind of Tyrant :P)…

If you want to look at lovely buff men in skimpy clothing then you’ll be highly disappointed – if you though however want to see more of the logical reasoning behind the Hercules myth – and lots of (moderate) killing and violence then you’ll like this one…

The Purge: Anarchy (15) – what’s it about? The annual Purge takes place – and people begin to question the government and the Purge itself…the story follows a group of individuals…can they survive the night?

Are you feeling cleansed? More killing and surviving and violence and people running for their lives – the Purge is awesome – it’s not extreme grossness but a nice helping if survival horror – I like the Purge…Purging is fun…but being Purged is not so much!

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes (12A) – what’s it about? A continuation from Rise of the Planet of the Apes – humanity is near extinction – the intelligent apes have taken up residence – the humans set out to work with them to ensure their own survival but will the whole thing end in war???…

More apes and story and stuff like that – I was thinking in this man these movies are stupid – they’re about apes taking over the world – but if you shed reality for a bit then it’s good – good continuation and gap filling to the story – with a nice sized handful of action thrown in – gives this one a nice stirred in mix…it’s just like a cake…with added ape fur…

Odd Thomas (DVD – 15) – what’s it about? Odd by name and odd by nature – he can see dead people and does something about it – he stops the baddies and all that jazz – but with the increase of lurking creatures – he knows something big is going to down – can he figure out what it is and stop it from happening???…

This is pretty cool – dude it’s like as funny as crazy people in a nuthouse – a good mix of story – odd plot and weird stuff happening. I like it – one of those random surprising movies that you don’t expect to be any good but it turns out to be a bloody goldmine! What more can I say without spoiling it – just its good – so go check it!
