A CHRISTMAS PRINCE: ROYAL BABY (Video Release USA 2019)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

A Christmas Prince: Royal Baby—an average ‘feel good’ film—ends the third film in the A Christmas Prince series The film is not outstanding and works more on television quality storytelling rather than theater production quality. Good work for Director John Schultz.

Storyline

The royal baby is on its way.

TROOP ZERO (Theatrical Release USA 2019)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Troop Zero—earthy, with undertones that may remind an audience of Beast of the Southern Wild—becomes a small diamond in the rough for entertainment. The film has been loosely written, almost disjointed, in a style that completely captures a possible life after Mom has passed away. Great acting comes in a casting package of Viola Davis, Alison Janney, Mckenna Grace, and James Gaffigan with guest star Mike Epps. Great work for Director Katie Elwood and Amber Templemore-Finlayson (credited as Bert and Bertie).

Storyline

A young girl dreams of being recorded on a golden record that NASA plans on sending into outer space.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Kate Ellwood and Amber Templemore-Finlayson for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Jenny Hinkey for making the film possible.

Ture).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Lovable film shows how to win on a deeper level when losing a prize. This is almost a watch again film with its own WOW! factor.

THE AERONAUTS (Theatrical Release USA 2019)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

The Aeronauts—based on a true story set in 1862 London—is an example of the advertising trailer being better than the film itself. Acting and action scenes are not believable nor are they particularly exciting.  So, the overall film is not a blockbuster; but it tells its story and is watchable to see what happens to James Glaisher, an early meteorologist who has a theory and is trying to prove his theory amidst cries of impossible.

Storyline

A man believes the weather can be predicted.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Tom Harper for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Richard Hewitt and Jack Thorne for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Amelia Wren (Felicity Jones), Pierre Rennes (Vincent Perez), Antonia (Phoebe Fox), Charlie (Lewin Lloyd), John Trew (Himesh Patel), James Glaisher (Eddie Redmayne), Ned Chambers (Robert Glenister), Airy (Tim McInnerny), Charles Green (Thomas Arnold), Arthur Glaisher (Tom Courtenay), and Ethel Glaisher (Anne Reid).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. It’s an easy way to think about efforts to establish weather prediction.

CATCH ME IF YOU CAN (Theatrical Release USA 2002)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Catch Me If You Can—classic Leonardo DiCaprio—takes the gold cup for entertainment. This fast moving, incredible story is one of DiCaprio’s best works, captures the imagination, and keeps its audience on the edge of its seats throughout its 141 minutes. Great work for Director Steven Spielberg as he skillfully brings to full bloom the acting abilities of Tom Hanks, Christopher Walken, Martin Sheen, Josh Brolin, and Jennifer Garner.

Storyline

A young man lives as a Pan Am pilot, a lawyer, and a doctor before his 19th birthday.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This biopic presents an incredibly fresh series of scenarios that peak and keep interest throughout. This is a ‘make the popcorn before the movie’ as the audience will not want to miss a single fast-moving segment.

THE TOURIST (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

The Tourist—features an unusual teaming of Johnny Depp and Angelina Jolie—has a wonderfully unexpected twist in its conclusion. It’s got a few dragging scenes such as the two boat scenes where everyone takes just a bit too long to shoot character Elise Clifton-Ward (Jolie). But, other than that, the film is more than a worthy watch. It reminds one of mystery, action, dramas of the earlier days of movie making and presents a welcome storyline.

Storyline

A tourist gets entangled with a woman who is under constant law enforcement watch.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Florian Henckel von Donnersmarck for directing effot. Thank you to Executive Producers Olivier Courson, Ron Halpern, Bahman Naraghi, and Lloyd Phillips for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Frank Tupelo (Johnny Depp), Elise Clifton-Ward (Angelina Jolie), Inspector John Acheson (Paul Bettany), Chief Inspector Jones (Timothy Dalton), Reginald Shaw (Steven Berkoff),  The Englishman (Rufus Sewell), and Colonnello Lombardi (Christian De Sica).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. The audience is presented with an eyeful of Angelina Jolie, who is paired with male lead, Johnny Depp. It is difficult to pair Jolie due to her overwhelming stage presence, but Depp manages to hold his own without an obvious struggle in this quite entertaining movie.

LA BAMBA (Theatrical Release USA 1987)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

La Bamba—well-done review of Ritchie Valens rise to musical stardom—is highly entertaining and gives good insight into the migrant worker’s lifestyle as well as an incredibly fast rise to musical stardom.  Worth a watch.

Storyline

Insight into Ritchie Valens’ musical career and his personal life.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Luis Valdez for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Stewart Benjamin for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Ritchie Valens (Lou Diamond Phillips), Bob Morales (Esai Morales), Connie Valenzuela (Rosanna DeSoto), Rosie Morales (Elizabeth Peña), Donna Ludwig (Danielle von Zerneck), Bob Keane (Joe Pantoliano), Ted Quillin (Rick Dees), Buddy Holly (Marshall Crenshaw), and Jackie Wilson (Howard Huntsberry).

Yes. Beautiful music laces this biopic.

BEAUTIFUL BOY (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Beautiful Boy—educational—works the serious side of Steve Carrell to good effect. The film provides an early look at the acting talents of Timothée Chalamet. This film works on the somber, serious side of storytelling and will likely ring very strong emotional response for anyone involved in this same struggle. Great work for Director Felix van Goeningen.

Storyline

A young man gets caught up in drug addiction and his family works through the pain of trying to help him.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Felix van Groeningen for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Sarah Esberg and Nan Morales for making the film possible.

Yes. It’s worth a non-judgmental watch.

CREED II (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Creed II—almost as good as the first Creed (2015)—has the pump and feel of some of the training scenes from the Rocky films. The difference is the Rocky movies had incredible, unforgettable music that accompanied the scenes which served to intensify the realistic, grueling training. Despite this, don’t miss this film. Director Steven Caple, Jr. timed the scenes well with terrific camera work that caught the emotion of the moment. Terrific conclusion is worth waiting for.

Storyline

Rocky Balboa tutors a new heavyweight champion.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Steven Caple, Jr. for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Ryan Coogler, Michael B. Jordan, and Guy Riedel for making the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. This finishes the series and compliments the first film very well. Worth a watch.

LEONARD COHEN: I'M YOUR MAN (Theatrical Release USA 2006)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man does not do what documentaries are meant to do…shed a little light on the subject. The audience will see a few of Mr. Cohen’s performances as performed through other musicians and will leave with a somber, un-enlightened feeling. No real information is given…no real meaning to a life is expressed or applauded…there’s just an impression that asks: And, why was this documentary made? Did Cohen miss his real calling in life? Who was he?

Storyline

A documentary on the songwriter and performer, Leonard Cohen.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Lian Lunson for directing effort. Thank you to Kevin L. Beggs, Bruce Davey, Mel Gibson, Sarah Greenberg, Erik Nelson, Tim Palen, and Sandra Stern for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Himself (Leonard Cohen), Herself (Martha Wainwright), Herself (Beth Orton), Himself (Jarvis Cocker), Himself (Rufus Wainwright), Himself (Nick Cave), Herself (Perla Batalla), Herself (Julie Christensen), Himself (Anohni), Herself (Linda Thompson), Himself (Teddy Thompson), and Herself (Kate McGarrigle).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Maybe. This film does little to bring light to Leonard Cohen and does not show what he was all about. It's almost as if he never found his way and was lost somewhere along his way, not only to himself but to anyone who could have known him.

STAR TREK: THE MOTION PICTURE (Theatrical Release USA 1979)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Star Trek The Motion Picture starts fairly well, but after Captain Kirk gets into the Enterprise and begins flight, the movie is watchable, but boring. It seems they fly over a second ship for a very long period of time and then after a series of events, the film ends weakly. It’s almost like, “Let’s throw a bunch of patchwork quilt pieces into a box, shake vigorously, and see what comes out.” What came out was what went in because there wasn’t a good seamstress to make it into a beautifully patterned quilt.

Storyline

The Enterprise’s mission is to intercept an alien spacecraft.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Robert Wise for directing effort. Thank you to Producers David C. Fein and Gene Roddenberry for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner), Spock (Leonard Nimoy), Dr. McCoy (DeForest Kelley), Scotty (James Doohan), Sulu (George Takei), Dr. Chapel (Majel Barrett), Chekov (Walter Koenig), Uhura (Nichelle Nichols), Ilia (Persis Khambatta), Decker (Stephen Collins), Janice Rand (Grace Lee Whitney), and Klingon Captain (Mark Lenard).

ARTHUR CHRISTMAS (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

Arthur Christmas—computer animated film—plays on a new story that completely works. It presents a retired Santa, a reigning Santa, and the next in line to inherit the occupation all in one setting. The occupation passes down from Father to Son for generations. This movie is entertaining and makes a great child/adult share film for holiday season. The writing is well-done, dialogue well executed, has well-timed sequences. It entertains with well-drawn characters. This is a worthy watch for both time and money investment.

Storyline

One girl did not get her from Santa gift present and Santa’s son, Arthur, sets out to rectify the error.

LEGION (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

Legion—gritty and bloody—launches its audience into the world of fighting angels with earth picking up the pieces. Great acting and surprise scenes with spiritual overtones mark this film as unusual and worth watching.

DRAGONHEART: A NEW BEGINNING (VHS Release Finland 2000)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.6|5.0 Starsììì

Dragonheart: A New Beginning—an improvement over the first film—still lacks that pizzazz that makes great entertainment.  Christopher Masterson (Malcolm in the Middle) works in this film. It is watchable, but not the best in the dragon films. There are two prequel films, one to be produced in 2020.

Storyline

A stable boy makes friends with a dragon.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Doug Lefler for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Hester Hargett for making the film possible.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. If one is intent on finishing the series, then this is the watch. But, Pete’s Dragon, the remake, is a much better entertainment piece than both Dragonhearts combined.

SEVEN DAYS IN UTOPIA (Theatrical Release USA 2011)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.8|5.0 Starsììì

Seven Days in Utopia, not a great film, but a good film with good ethical standards backing its storyline. Good work for Director Matthew Dean Russell. A nicely put together lunch watch that gives good reflection on principles to live by.

Storyline

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Matthew Dean Russell for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producers Rob Carliner, David L.

A HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS (Theatrical Release USA 2018)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

A House With A Clock in Its Walls showcases the acting talents of Jack Black, Owen Vaccaro, and Cate Blanchett. It is a movie easily missed that serves at the quality level of the Harry Potter series of films in its tremendous imagination, creativity, and freshness in presentation and in storyline. This movie highlights the directing skill of Director Eli Roth. It’s a WOW! Bravo! movie that has enough depth to deserve a second viewing to see what may have been missed in the first viewing.

Storyline

A young man helps his uncle find a clock that can end the world.

THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER (Theatrical Release USA 1965)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

The Sons of Katie Elder—classic western, John Wayne-style—is pretty well done. It’s not the best in the rank of high-end westerns, but it serves above the usual B-grade western flick. Good work for Director Henry Hathaway in working with this casting group. He caught and pulled the character out of the four boys well.

Storyline

Four sons come home to bury their mother.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Harry Hathaway for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Joseph H. Hazen for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: John Elder (John Wayne), Tom Elder (Dean Martin), Mary Gordon (Martha Hyer), Bud Elder (Michael Anderson, Jr.), Matt Elder (Earl Holliman), Ben Latta (Jeremy Slate), Morgan Hastings (James Gregory), Sheriff Billy Wilson (Paul Fix), Curley (George Kennedy), Dave Hastings (Dennis Hopper), Harry Evers (Sheldon Allman), and Minister (John Litel).

THE LOST TREASURE OF THE GRAND CANYON (Television Release USA 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.4|5.0 Starsìì

The Lost Treasure of the Grand Canyon—could have been a good story—runs on a linear, get-to-the-point  storyline and seems built to make a ‘buck or two and skedaddle.’ The film is plagued with unprofessional acting, low quality, thin story line, and general un-clarity in scripting. It seems to want to reproduce an Indiana Jones-style movie without the personality of Indiana Jones.

Storyline

Researchers find a lost city in the Grand Canyon.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Farhad Mann for directing effort. Thank you to Executive Producer Harvey Kahn for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Jacob Thain (Michael Shanks), Susan Jordan (Shannen Doherty), Marco Langford (JR Bourne), Stewart Dunbar (Toby Berner), Hildy Wainwright (Heather Doerksen), Dr. Samuel Jordan (Duncan Fraser), Isaac Preston (Peter New), Aztec Priest (Byron Chief-Moon), and Dr. Gilmore (A.C. Peterson).

No. Altogether, this is a poor production. Hopefully, Director Farhad Mann will do better in the future.

THE REPORT (Theatrical Release USA 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.8|5.0 Starsìììì

The Report seems like a propaganda film whose sole purpose is to sow seeds rather than entertain. The acting, however, is flawless, the portrayal beyond expectations, and the script exceptionally well-written. This movie serves an adult audience who desires deep intellectual engagement. Great work for Director Scott Z. Burns.

Storyline

CIA discovers secrets about the 9/11 disaster.

TREMORS II: AFTERSHOCKS (Video Release USA 1996)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Starsììì

Tremors II: Aftershocks—cool concept, but it seems like just another run-of-the-mill thriller—needs improvement on realism and the portrayal. The film does not need a sequel, but Hollywood as of 2019 makes four more movies to this film. Good work for Director S.S. Wilson

Storyline

An oil company hires Earl Bassett to eliminate Graboids.
