Michael R (gb) wrote: Dramatic, emotional and full of sci-fi visuals that amaze the eye. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes is smart and that's where it's true strength lies. This film is a blockbuster that has an actual story to tell and that story is exactly what elevates it above other films striving to accomplish what it has accomplished.

Doctor S (jp) wrote: In a movie starring Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, I assumed that it had been written by Tina Fey and/or Amy Poehler, so I was surprised to discover during the end credit crawl that it was written by the director Michael McCullers. Surprised because of his on-target capturing of both female sensibility and Tina Fey-style humor. She plays a character, career-minded health food chain VP Kate Holbrook, not far removed from her 30 Rock alter-ego Liz Lemon, while Poehler plays surrogate mom wannabe Angie to her strength of mouthy mania often seen during her SNL days. The film isn't fall-down hilarious, in fact co-star Dax Shepard gets the most laughs as Angie's idiot loser boyfriend, but unlike most comedies that sputter it remembers to develop the story to conclusion, thereby delivering consistent entertainment value for all 100 minutes. That's helped by a smashing supporting cast including Greg Kinnear, Steve Martin, and Sigourney Weaver! There are also some nifty turns in the story, one I saw coming but two others I didn't. Baby Mama champions modern society's alternative parenting options while simultaneously finding the absurdities inherent in the situation, led by two of today's leading comediennes in what I'd describe as a 'compassionate comedy.'

Dane W (au) wrote: Fire On Mystic Island is almost a weak film with unimagnative new characters and slow start, but is saved with 45 minutes left giving enough action and heart.

Vanessa B (gb) wrote: You can get lost at times watching this movies with all the different side stories happening, but at the end you'll agree it was a good movie. Funny, definitely strange at times, you'll scratch your head at the end credits, but you'll definitely like it at the end.

Blake P (fr) wrote: The fact that "Sheba, Baby" is the worst of the Pam Grier starring blaxploitation classics, the others being "Coffy," "Foxy Brown," and "Friday Foster," is not the fault of Pam Grier herself but the fault of William Girdler, a hackish director who doesn't seem to know what to do with his larger-than-life star. Flat and uninspired, "Sheba, Baby" feels like the reject younger sister of its aforementioned siblings, attempting to copy what made the others so great in the first place but, what do you know, ends up coming across as a little girl lost in search of a personality for prom. It is lucky to have Grier, who, despite meandering material, maintains a winning sense of humor and maintains a screen presence still able to knock us out even if the action around her is drivel. Her Sheba Shayne is perhaps the most perceptive and self-respecting of the women she played in the mid-1970s - a private detective with a keen eye for bullshit, she uses wit and courage in ways other than useful seduction. Sheba is currently living it up in Chicago, where she is admired and desired; professionally, she is at her highest point. But she is brought back to her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky after her father is beaten up and threatened by a band of criminals who plan on stealing his insurance business right out from under him. Sheba isn't the kind to sit back and hope for the best - she scoffs at anyone (namely her father himself) who doubts her because of her genitalia - so she cuts corners of the law and looks for the bad guys attempting to swipe her family's livelihood herself. But after tragedy mares the investigation, her sleuthing escalates to near action heroine levels. Scratch that - she makes Angelina Jolie look like Jan Brady on a school night. And yet, despite Grier's dedication and our pure enjoyment of simply watching her, "Sheba, Baby" lacks the aliveness of the Holy Trinity, all of which stand as some of the best films in the blaxploitation cycle as a whole. While they all garnered cheap thrills greasy but nonetheless successful, "Sheba, Baby" is stuck in a middle ground of average worsened by a pedestrian director. If Grier wasn't starring, I'm sure the film never would have been made - it is all too obvious of a cash-in regarding her box-office stamina. Good thing "Friday Foster" stepped in as the grand finale and brought its protagonist a role worthy of her talents. Otherwise, I'd be having a mental breakdown in the corner of the room, and we wouldn't want that, now would we? But while "Sheba, Baby" is neither bad nor good, it certainly isn't a waste of time. Couple it with "Cleopatra Jones" or some other tame exercise in 1970s black cinema as a double feature you'll be all set for an entertaining movie night. I just wish it weren't so middling - Grier deserves better, and blaxploitation wasn't nearly long enough of an era for second chances.
