Invention of Lying, TheInvention of Lying, The (2009)
2 stars (Good Try) The plot idea was fine but it lost steam and appeal after a while.
Legend of Baron To'a, TheLegend of Baron To'a, The (2020)
2 stars (Good Try) Some will find it funny some will find it silly.
DVD $29.95
Man Who Fell to Earth, TheMan Who Fell to Earth, The (1976)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) Its main attraction is that it is highly original but it loses some of its impact by spending too much time on the love interest – quite a bit of which had nothing to do with science fiction.
Mr. BrooksMr. Brooks (2007)
2 stars (Good Try) Unusually Demi struggles a bit in this. Having the Costner and Hurt "characters" on screen together is a bit clumsy at times but I suppose it is better than having two Costners.
DVD $15 $11.25
Queen of Sheba's Pearls, TheQueen of Sheba's Pearls, The (2004)
3 stars (Good Enough) It has some delightful touches of offbeat humour sprinkled here and there in an interesting screenplay. It is performed by an interesting mix of a cast which includes the great character actor Peter Vaughan.
Adventures in BabysittingAdventures in Babysitting (1987)Recommended
3 stars (Good Enough) It may not have worked but for the casting of the appealing Elisabeth Shue but there are some great Chicago street locations.
Centre StageCentre Stage (2000)
2 stars (Good Try) Just watch the dancing bits.
Kings Go ForthKings Go Forth (1958)
2 stars (Good Try) A bit dated but bearable.
DVD $19.95
PhotographPhotograph (2018)
3 stars (Good Enough) The low key performance of the two leads is just right. The male patiently surviving onslaughts from his nagging grandmother whilst the female is at all times beautifully non effusive. Soppy romantic screenplay writers can learn a lot from watching this.
DVD $29.95
Professor and the Madman, TheProfessor and the Madman, The (2019)Recommended
2 stars (Good Try) Good production values. However, there was a lot of mumbling behind beards and it wasn't that easy to follow the screenplay but because the synopsis sounded interesting I hope to read the book.
DVD $24.95
