Review: Despicable Me 2

Posted by Ben at 18:30 on 29 Jun 2013
Despicable Me 2
You could slap a three-star review on Despicable Me 2 and most people wouldn't complain, but whether you enjoy it or not depends entirely on two things: how much you enjoy the slapstick comedy of the minions, and how much schmaltz you can tolerate. The only way to give it a fair review is via the medium of chart.

Review: Rock Of Ages

Rock Of Ages
Power chords and rock ballads, permed hair and eye liner, bare tops and leather trousers... Rock Of Ages is a stone-cold medley of cheese and cliché. It riffs on dated guitar bands and power-anthems and it builds its city on dry ice and key changes. And yet... it still kinda rocks.

Yes, we know it's a terrible joke. Yes, we know someone else already made the same terrible joke. But the point is... er, we forget.

Review: Arthur

Arthur
How you choose to take this remake of Dudley Moore's 1981 classic hinges entirely on your tolerance for a certain Russell Brand. Granted, his Arthur 2.0 is a slightly toned-down version of himself, and the pelvic thrusts, sex-mad antics, swearing and prank calls to aging comedians are at a minimum, but if you outright don't like the bloke, a top hat, tails and a cane is hardly going to change that.

Let's play freestyle word association with Russell Brand. Ready? Go! Err... Ponce. Egomaniac. Twat? Mincing. Hair. Arrogant. Self-satisfied. Ponce? Hmm, done that one... Dandy. Pompous. Cad. Wordsmith. Flouncing. Umm... Funny?

Want to see more of Russell Brand hamming up his cockney lord act? Yeah, I'm undecided too. Still, as the new trailer for Get Him to the Greek shows, it might still be funny for a little while longer.

Your tolerance for this follow-up to Forgetting Sarah Marshall completely relies on how much you loathe Russell Brand, but if you can stand his 'Eck, I'm a right royal old rotter, me' act, it could be good for a few laughs.

Forgetting Sarah Marshall
For all the fuss surrounding producer Judd Apatow's comedies, there are some people involved in his movies that have been seriously neglected for their contributions. The 40 Year-Old Virgin wouldn't have worked half as well without co-writer and wax-resistant star Steve Carell in the title role; Knocked Up birthed not one but tw...
