DVD Spotlight: The A-Team

Reviewed by Peter Veugelaers © 2010
The A-Team DVD Review
image They were a foursome revered by high school kids. Hannibal Smith, B.A. Baracus, Murdock and Face – and everyone had a favorite. Memorably, someone had to pick Mr. T, the actor behind Baracus, and everyone identified, or was given, a character that fitted. The new batch of actors playing these now old hats has shoes to fill, indeed, except if you’re fifteen and don’t have a clue who Mr. T is.

Bradley Copper as Face, for reasons which have everything to do with his acting ability, is squared off with an agent who used to be his girlfriend (Jessica Biel), but I wondered where he got the time between tours of duties. Her antagonism towards him makes for the first sign of tangible conflict and that after a lengthy opening…more

Our First 7” Android Tablet is Now in Hand. First Impressions – Look out Kindle

We just got our hands on the Augen Gentouch 7” Android tablet today. A full review will follow after we spend the weekend playing. The first thing we did was to install the Kindle android app and this little 7” form factor is a better experience than the Kindle so far. How does it stack up against an iPad? We will let you know after a few days testing, but on first impressions, at 1/4 the price and running Kindle, Google maps, and as a twitter client, it is off to a great start.

Charlie St. Cloud

Charlie St. Cloud

image

Based on an acclaimed novel, "Charlie St. Cloud" is a romantic drama starring Zac Efron as a young man who survives an accident that lets him see the world in a unique way. In this emotionally charged story, he begins a romantic journey in which he embraces the dark realities of the past while discovering the transformative power of love.
Accomplished sailor Charlie St. Cloud (Efron) has the adoration of mother Claire (Oscar® winner Kim Basinger) and little brother Sam (newcomer Charlie Tahan), as well as a college scholarship that will lead him far from his sleepy Pacific Northwest hometown. But his bright future is cut short when a tragedy strikes and takes his dreams with it.
After his high-school classmate Tess (Amanda Crew) returns home unexpectedly, Charlie grows torn between honoring a promise he made four years earlier and moving forward with newfound love. And as he finds the courage to let go of the past for good, Charlie discovers the soul most worth saving is his own.

EN 5 Second Review: As much as we hate to say it, Zac Efron is not the problem with this movie, he actually does a quite good job. The problem is this sappy fantasy plays like a lifetime movie, not a theater movie. If Zac had not signed on no chance this movie makes it to theaters, lets hope he gets better material to work with in his next outing as he has the chops for it.

Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore

image In the age-old battle between cats and dogs, one crazed feline has taken things a paw too far. Kitty Galore, formerly an agent for cat spy organization MEOWS, has gone rogue and hatched a diabolical plan to not only bring her canine enemies to heel, but take down her former kitty comrades and make the world her scratching post. Faced with this unprecedented threat, cats and dogs will be forced to join forces for the first time in history in an unlikely alliance to save themselves – and their humans – in "Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore," a comedy that blends live action with state-of-the-art puppetry and computer animation. It’s time for the fur to fly.

EN 5 Second Review: . Amazingly entertaining for the under 8 crowd, anyone over 8 years old will find this movie horrendous and you will leave the theater dumber than when you entered. We implore you to turn away from the screen if you must take a group of children.
