Wizzums’s Film Reviews
221 Films have been rated or reviewed by Wizzums.
- Black Swan (2010)
- Portman\'s performance is sometimes the only thing that keeps the film from being almost laughably melodramatic.
- Aliens (1986)
- A successful genre change makes for a fine action film, but it fails to match the greatness of the first.
- Crazy Heart (2009)
- Bridges is brilliant, and Gyllenhaal almost matches him, but otherwise the film treads through convention after convention.
- Pirates of the Caribbean 3: At World's End (2007)
- The entertainment and charm that was found in the first film is almost completely lost here in a needlessly over–complicated and ultimately stupid plot.
$10 $5, $10, $24.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95
- Pirates of the Caribbean 2: Dead Man's Chest (2006)
- Still entertaining, but the plot begins to drag.
$10 $5, $19.95 | Blu-Ray $24.95
- Pirates of the Caribbean: Curse of the Black Pearl (2003)
- Hugely enjoyable. Depp and Rush are great.
- DVD $24.95
- Heat (1995)
- De Niro and Pacino are good, but it is the stellar shoot–outs that lift an all–around solid film.
- Schindler's List (1993)
- A rich, powerful and haunting experience with an excellent cast, including an incredible Fiennes. Well worth a look.
- DVD $29.95
- Scarface (1983)
- Pacino is entertaining, and the film has some great moments, but it is very patchy in both pace and quality.
$20 $10, $20 $15
- Life of David Gale, The (2002)
- Spacey and Winslet\'s considerable talents lift an already solid, if a bit predictable, thriller.
- DVD $14.95
