Two movies to warn you about this weekend. There's no love for "The Big Wedding." In a poll of critics, the comedy earned the lowest scores in recent memory and as far as I'm concerned "Pain and Gain" is even worse.
"The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" is an all too ordinary comedy with too few laughs that manages to waste the talents of Steve Carell and Steve Buscemi playing 2 magicians who found a common bond as kids.
The film is called Oz the Great and Powerful, but it falls short of such a lofty title by being good enough but not great. Not exactly weak, but hardly as powerful as it should have been given the original Wizard of Oz is so beloved.
Fifty years of James Bond movies will be celebrated at the Oscars on Sunday, including a first-time Oscars performance by Shirley Bassey. She recorded three Bond theme songs (Moonraker, Diamonds Are Forever, Goldfinger).
A veteran star returns with a vengeance, which is not the same as saying his new film is good. Fans of the twilight series have a pale imitation to ease their withdrawal, and trust me folks romance can be a lot more exciting than the one featured in "Safe Haven."
The studio releasing "Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters" was so ashamed of the movie critics weren't allowed to see it until last night and having suffered through a screening of this worthless piece of trash I can certainly understand why those involved were so embarrassed by it.
