Made of Honor 新郎不是我
Patrick Dempsy, Michelle Monaghan
A role reversal of 97's '"My Best Friend's Wedding" "Made of Honor" could still have found a dash of originality, or romance, or cleverness but instead merely recycles the other movie leaving an overall sense of triteness. Dempsy does whip off his shirt quite alot though, which might make it worth it for some.
Meet Dave 大衛特大號
Eddie Murphy. Elizabeth Banks
Eddie Murphy's latest offering has a good premise but the humor is rather slapstick and predictable. Add in an annoying moralistic streak about the good ol' human heart and you're left with another sub-par offering from a very funny actor.
Fred Willard, and the voices of Ben Burtt, Jeff Garlin, Sigourney Weaver
The best film from Pixar since "Finding Nemo", "WALL-E" tells its tale with fanciful, visually rewarding images but little dialogue. A return to the heart of what Pixar does best, WALL-E is a well thought through look at the damage that may be done by human complacancy.
The Mummy:Tomb of the Dragon Emperor 神鬼傳奇3
Bredan Fraser, Maria Bello, Jet Li
Third installment of a pretty mundane series, Mummy 3 fails to impress, with over-loud action scenes and a painfully contrived script which falls apart after a moment's consideration. It lacks mummies but somehow involves yetis. Go figure.
James McAvoy, Angelina Jolie, Morgan Freeman
A brilliant opening action scene, but a huge swerve from the orginal comic book's storyline (removing all the superheroes and making the baddies goodies trying to prevent evil before it happens) means the film slows and only picks up again with an excess of gore and violence.
The Dark Knight 黑暗騎士
Christian Bale, Heath Ledger, Gary Oldman, Aaron Eckhart
The latest Batman installment is a good movie, it's very good in fact, but it still falls short of the hype. Heath Ledger as the Joker is highly entertaining, much more so than the surprisingly two-dimensional performance Bale turns in as the caped crusader.
Red Cliff 赤壁
Tony Leung, Takeshi Kaneshiro, Chiu Wei, Zhao Wei
John Woo's epic does not disappoint as grand narrative meets outstanding storytelling. The characters are injected with humor and modern sensibility. A cliffhanger of an ending is leaving audiences eagerly awaiting the sequel.
