Dwayne Johnson no longer has to affix the moniker “The Rock” to his name because we all know that he’s become a rock-solid force in movies.   

Faster (Review)

Action thriller lacks a surprising or thrilling punch

0 Comments · Monday, November 29, 2010
Dwayne Johnson races down dark and dirty alleyways as an ex-con hunting down the men who double-crossed him during a major heist and killed his brother. Director George Tillman Jr. channels his inner Tony Scott here, but the script lacks a surprising or thrilling punch, and Tillman refuses to race fast and furiously into the darkest and most dangerous corners that would have at least made for some real B-movie glory. Grade: D.  

The Other Guys (Review)

Ferrell and Wahlberg stretch beyond the routine buddy cop comedy

0 Comments · Wednesday, August 4, 2010
Desk jockey detectives Allen Gamble (Will Ferrell) and Terry Hoitz (Mark Wahlberg) stumble onto the heroic forefront in Adam McKay's latest laughfest collaboration ('Anchorman,' 'Step Brothers') with Ferrell. This is more than a straight-ahead send-up of the "buddy cop" convention, as Ferrell and Wahlberg burrow past the laughs until something almost recognizable and real emerges. Grade: B.  

The Tooth Fairy (Review)

Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson takes a step back in lightweight kid-friendly flick

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson continues to mine the kid-friendly project pool with this lightweight pitch about an arrogant aging hockey star, busted into the ranks of the tooth fairies (since Santa's been abused, it would seem the Easter Bunny might be next). Grade: D-.  

Planet 51 (Review)

Sweet story pays homage to past sci-fi icons

0 Comments · Monday, November 30, 2009
Many of the comparisons that will be made about this animated tale will focus primarily on the space-age science-fiction variety because it's packed to the gills with references to everything from 'The Day the Earth Stood Still' to 'Wall-E' and 'Star Wars.' But at its rather sweet core, 'Planet 51,' despite all of the who's-an-alien jokes being bandied about, the most appropriate and loving homage in the movie is toward the 'Back to the Future' series. Grade: C plus.
