The Hunting is one of those films which perplex me as to why they exist at all; quite why a minor 90s B-movie warranted a sequel I don't know. And although the original Screamers may have "borrowed" some ideas from Aliens, The Hunting is about as shameless as Paris Hilton on a tequila and nose candy binge (Hell, even Bishop makes a cameo appearance). It does manage to build on the original idea providing improved effects and better narrative momentum and is a perfectly serviceable sci-fi B-movie itself despite once again featuring no familiar faces (apart from Jana Palaske, whose resemblance to Scarlett Johanssen is almost spooky...) and the fact that the ending is even more ridiculous than the original. A decent enough diversion but given the choice between watching this and the REAL Aliens for the umpteenth time there's only one real choice.

(br) wrote: Brittany Murphy and Dakota Fanning star in the fun, lighthearted comedy Uptown Girls. When the daughter of a former rock star loses her trust fund she's forced to take a job as a nanny for a rigid, uptight 8-year-old girl. The story is rather formulaic and the characters are a little cliche, but Murphy and Fanning have great chemistry together and are able to elevate the material. Additionally, the film has a nice message about the trails and bonds of friendship. Uptown Girls is pretty much a by the numbers buddy comedy, but there's also some charm to it too.
