ZOMBIELAND (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Zombieland—
creative and different—plays out as one of the better movies of 2009. This film creates a surprisingly good acting team of Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg. The single faux pas in the storyline comes toward its conclusion with a manipulated scenario where Wichita and Little Rock make their way to a carnival in California, deliberately start all the lights and carnival machinery while in the middle of a Los Angeles-sized Zombie population. The audience, at this point, asks, ‘Really?’ The scene, 'a little fun' in trade for 'a sure death wish', comes off as a thinly disguised story manipulation to allow Tallahassee and Columbus to save the day and win their girls. That artifice costs film enjoyment. However, Zombieland still creates interest in Director Ruben Fleischer’s (producer and writer of The Rob and Big Show on MTV) creative work and asks for a sequel that involves Woody Harrelson and Jesse Eisenberg cast together.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Ruben Fleischer for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Ryan Kavanaugh, Rhett Reese, Ezra Swerdlow, and Paul Wernick for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: 406 (Amber Heard), Bill Murray (Bill Murray), and Clown Zombie (Derek Graf).

PONYO (Theatrical Release Japan 2008)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.8|5.0 Starsìì

Different, fresh, clean. Ponyo has a certain kindness written throughout the story, a not-quite-definable gentleness that laces the works of Director Hayao Miyazaki. It is not one of his best works, but it starts out well and holds it course throughout with some slow spots (i.e., when a bubble-encased Ponyo (voiced by Noah Lindsey Cyrus) is finally freed by her siblings). The movie contains a few scenes that appear to need more explanation; but overall, this is a great movie for young people. Ponyo definitely creates a desire to follow more of Director Hayao Miyazaki’s work. Kudos to Noah Lindsey Cyrus and Frankie Jonas for outstanding voicing of dialogue.

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Despite the lower star rating given this film, the gentleness of this director's stories magnetically draws audiences to his movies.

THE UNTOUCHABLES (Theatrical Release USA 1987)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.3|5.0 Starsìì

The Untouchables—
a good gangster movie, not a great gangster movie—is a poor casting choice for Kevin Costner. He seems weak and ineffective in nearly every scene while Sean Connery is not fully right for the script. Connery’s sleek, smooth-talking, no-nonsense James Bond manner creates awkwardness for this storyline. The good casting choices are Robert De Niro as Al Capone where he plays a strong part. Unfortunately, this movie does not begin to pick up pace until the end of the movie when Agent Oscar Wallace (played by Charles Martin Smith) is killed. The big shootout toward the end of the movie is well done and probably the best part of the whole movie.

Al Capone (Robert De Niro) owns Chicago. Eliot Ness (Kevin Costner) is assigned the formidable job of stopping Capone.

Thank you to Director Brian de Palma for directing efforts. Thank you to Producer Art Linson for making the film possible.

UNDERDOG (Theatrical Release USA 2007)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.5|5.0 Starsìì

Underdog
becomes a fair to middling family movie with the predictable happy ending. James Belushi seems miscast and does not perform with his usual style in this film; the script needs significant improvement to raise the quality of the movie.

Film Poster Courtesy of Wikipedia

Storyline

Underdog (Jason Lee), a beagle serving the police department makes a mistake that results in him being ‘on the streets’. He is picked up and transported to an experimentation laboratory. When he tries to escape, he overturns chemicals which give him super powers of strength, hearing, speed, and smell. A retired policeman finds him and the story begins.

Additional Thanks

Thank you to Director Frederik Du Chau for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producers Todd Arnow, Eric Ellenbogen, and Bob Higgins for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Shoeshine (voice of Jason Lee), Dr. Simon Barsinister (Peter Dinklage), Dan Unger (James Belushi), Cad (Patrick Warburton), Jack (Alex Neuberger), Molly (Taylor Momsen), Mayor (John Slattery), Polly (voice of Amy Adams), and Riff Raff (voice of Brad Garrett).

OLD DOGS (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.0|5.0 Starsìì

Old Dogs
is plagued with poor casting choices and awkwardness. It’s not your normal Disney movie. Robin Williams and John Travolta do not cast well together. Travolta is an action/drama/singer/star personality. Williams is a comedian personality. One or the other cast in this movie is a good choice; both of them together are not good choices. Seth Green as a supporting actor is not a good casting meld either. Old Dogs could have been so much better with different crew on board. Old Dogs begins as a good story concept; but, the storyline is not well portrayed. The camp scenes and the scenes where medication pills are mixed and sorted seem awkward. Surprisingly, the movie made profit at the box office.

Storyline

Seven years after their divorce, Vicki (Kelly Preston) shows up again in Dan’s (Robin Williams) life, tells him her twins are his, and asks him to watch them while she does jail time for being an activist.

Thank you to Director Walt Becker for directing efforts. Thank you to Executive Producer Garrett Grant for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include: Charlie (John Travolta), Zach (Conner Rayburn), Emily (Ella Bleu Travolta), Amanda (Lori Loughlin), Craig (Seth Green), Jimmy Lunchbox (Bernie Mac), and Barry (Matt Dillon).

Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

No. Many of the movie’s scenes seem unnecessary to moving the storyline along. That, combined with poor casting choices, makes this movie a poor pick for an evening’s entertainment.

DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE MORGANS? (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 1.7|5.0 Starsì

Did You Hear About the Morgans?—
I don’t know where to start. Well, let’s start with Sarah Jessica Parker. She is so off the wall in this movie that the other actors cannot function well. The movie does not portray the acting talents of Sarah Jessica Parker, Sam Elliott, Mary Steenburgen, and Hugh Grant. The dialog is poor; camera shots pitiable (i.e., the scenes where the ‘bad guy’ is finally caught). The writer and director, Marc Lawrence, seems to have formulated a strangulated relationship between his roles. His end product shows that fact. This movie is a total drop in the bucket, seriously.

Attorney Paul Morgan (Hugh Grant) and Real Estate Agent Meryl Morgan (Sarah Jessica Parker) witness a murder and are hidden out in Ray, Wyoming under a witness protection program.

GRIDIRON GANG (Theatrical Release USA 2006)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7
|5.0 Starsììì

Gridiron Gang
is actually a good movie. Based on a true story, the film shows how juvenile detention camp boys can make something of themselves through the hard work and positive discipline found in playing college football. The concepts of winning and losing fairly, belief in self, and trust in others become focal points of the movie. The storyline plays well until the football game training. It slows at this point until the team begins playing with college football teams. From that point forward, the show is on an upswing that gradually increases through the conclusion of the story. This movie provides another good performance for Dwayne Johnson and Xzibit.

Ben Meyers’ rating: 1.4|5.0 Starsì

The Warlords
begins at the level of a two star movie. By the end of the first twenty minutes, it drops to a one star movie. The Warlords seems to drag on and on and ON. Rather than being a GREAT Chinese movie, it ends as a 'ho-hum' movie.

CONGO (Theatrical Release USA 1995)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.5|5.0 Starsìì

Congo
is a bona fide C-grade movie that works despite all its flaws. The storyline is simple, completely uncomplicated and very predictable. Ernie Hudson is too confident for his part as Captain Munro Kelly. Tim Curry is awkward as character Herkermer Homolka (i.e., when he starts to insist that he wants to find diamonds). Joe Don Baker as character R. B. Travis, while interacting with Laura Linney as character Dr. Karen Ross, completely botches the proper reaction to the massacre of part of their team by unknown gorillas. The introduction of a talking gorilla is awkward.

When a testing team does not return from the jungle, Dr. Karen Ross (Laura Linney) activates their remote camera, finds the camp ravaged, and loses camera contact after something knocks over the camera.

CATS DON’T DANCE (Theatrical Release USA 1997)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.4|5.0 Starsìì

Cats Don’t Dance
is fair entertainment work with some comedic elements. The introduction plays well until Danny, the cat, arrives in Hollywood; then, the story seems to fall apart little by little with only a few scenes that seem ‘cool’ or interesting. It’s like the writers borrowed from other movies and mixed scenes and dialogue to make a ‘cookie-cutter’ movie. With the exceptions of the Noah’s Ark scene, Darla Dimple and her butler scene, and Max scenes, there is little in this movie to pique interest. The movie lacks charisma and charm. The single film highlight is the comedic coupling of a sweet Shirley-Temple-look-a-like with a very mean, un-Shirley-Temple-like personality. This unique rendition is well-executed by character Darla Dimple.

Danny the cat (voice of Scott Bakula), new to Hollywood, is lucky enough to land a movie part but angers Darla Dimple (voice of Ashley Peldon), the star of the film.

CORALINE (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.7|5.0 Starsììì

Coraline—uniquely refreshing creativity. Director Henry Selick pulls off an attention-grabbing storyline that keeps viewer attention from beginning to end. Coraline does not present itself as a message movie, but the viewer is left with a clear understanding of the importance of real family, neighbors, and friends. Henry Selick comfortably moves through emotions of loneliness, despair, and losing all hope in the face of extreme evilness. This is a great movie for action-drama fans of all ages.

CLASH OF THE TITANS (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.2|5.0 Starsìì

Clash of the Titans
starts with a female voice narrating the history of the gods. Then, the story focuses on a fishing boat out to sea. The fisherman finds a casket floating close by his fishing boat and opens it to find a living baby boy lying on its dead mother’s chest. The fisherman raises the baby as his own son. At this point, the audience is engaged and interested. But from this point forward, the acting and the storyline race each other to see which one can reach the bottom of the barrel first. Clash of the Titans graphics are great; the story is great—a classic with an overall great concept However, Director Louis Leterrier was not able to pull the greatness of the story onto the screen. When leaving the theater, one of my colleagues said, “Not many people can take such a large scale concept and successfully cram it into an hour and forty-six minutes.” This is a case where more playing time is needed to expose a terrific story to the maximum. The movie rates as a lower two-star only because of the large scale graphics and the terrific monster fights. Without those, this movie can’t pull two-star rating. Definitely not a movie worth watching again.

HANNAH MONTANA: THE MOVIE (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 2.5|5.0 Starsìì

Hannah Montana
, the television series, is far more entertaining than Hannah Montana: The Movie. The movie’s opening scene promises so much and then dwindles into a multiple series of mixed, conflicting messages that are confusing to the audience. Director Peter Chelsom seems unable to realistically portray Hannah Montana’s true personality (i.e., as in the unrealistic scene when she first meets her former boyfriend). All flaws aside, Hannah Montana fans will most likely see this as a ‘have-to-see’ film and parents will not want to miss an opportunity to send their children to a clean, family film.

2012 (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.1|5.0 Starsììì

2012 takes a long time to start its ‘real’ story as the lead character, John Cusack (playing character Jack Curtis), takes far too long to realize the world has entered an apocalyptic stage. While outstanding graphics portray spectacular views of  a large American coastal city disappearing into the ocean, these same graphics overpower the film's great storyline. A surprise ending makes this movie a good action flick for apocalyptic film fans.

THE MUSKETEER (Theatrical Release USA 2001)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 0.7|5.0 Stars

The Musketeer
—a walkout movie—serves entertainment that makes one think: camera men are inexperienced and have not fully developed their craft, choreographer needs to work as an understudy to understand basic placement to enhance actors and the story they need to portray, and actors who may need to act in supporting roles for a while to move from unprofessional to professional. From beginning to end, the movie, unfortunately, dooms itself to failure. Director Peter Hyams' attempt to direct the final fight scene becomes laughably sad.

ARMORED (Theatrical Release USA 2009)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 1.5|5.0 Starsì

Armored
starts like any good movie should and plays well like any high three-star entertainment piece. Then Mike Cochrane (Matt Dillon) and Ty Hackett (Columbus Short) go to a hot dog stand and the viewer begins to realize there is not going to be much story to this movie. It almost seems like it wants to be a documentary. Then, to make things even worse, after the characters start discussing a bank robbery, the movie moves to a laughable warehouse scene where money is moved from two armored trucks into a hole in the wall with a homeless man secretly watching the monetary transfer. After the homeless man is injured, Ty Hackett gets a conscience and tries to make a getaway with the homeless man. The homeless man is dispatched and Ty Hackett tries to make a getaway in one of the armored trucks. The rest of the movie then proceeds to meander toward its final resting place in a process that includes approximately twenty minutes viewing Ty Hackett’s perils in a crashed armored truck beleaguered by his former outlaw buddies—Mike Cochrane, Baines (Laurence Fishburne), Quinn (Jean Reno), Palmer (Amaury Nolasco), and Dobbs (Skeet Ulrich). While Duncan Ashcroft (Fred Ward) and Eckehart (Milo Ventimiglia) play strong performances, Armored is a total waste of viewer’s time and a waste of good actors like Fishburne, Reno, Dillon, and Short. This is not the expected thriller, but more of an action drama with a script that couldn’t find itself. Director Nimród Antal couldn’t improve it. Hopefully, Antal will perform better with Predators.
