We've been on a bit of a bender film-wise in the past week. Here's the quick run-down of what we've seen since Tuesday: (max rating 5)
Ella Enchanted -- nice twist on an old tale. good solid family-friendly fare. I'd buy it if I found it at a good price. Rating: 4
Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events -- great sets. great concept. annoying adult cast (youth actors were great!). acceptable entertainment, but wouldn't rush to see it again. Rating: 2.5
In Good Company -- nice. amusing. unoffensive. took the road less travelled and surprised me. I'd watch it again. Rating: 3
Shaolin Soccer -- amazing cgi/effects. funny and silly. definitely original. I'd buy it if I found it at a good price. Rating:4
Shaun of the Dead -- funny! not as gruesome as I'd expected. Definitely, I'd watch it again. Rating 3.5
We still have Jersey Girl cued up to watch.... we'll see whether that comes to pass or not.
