Old fashioned and quaint, ´Swiss Family´ is a slow burner, but has a certain charm. It lacks in the way of much story or action, but good chemistry among the actors, a regular gag rate and strong production values keep it afloat.
Some questionable pacing and direction aside, this 90s Turner adaption of Hugo´s classic makes for an adequately moving melodrama. Really, the main strength here is the leads, be it Patinkin´s sympathetic and child like Quasimodo, or a wonderfully edgey yet paternal Harris as one of the more flawed Frollos out there.
Tacky and lacking in all the wrong areas, ´War Gods´is a sad end to Torneur´s distinguished career. Price and Tomlinson try, and the sets are not half bad, but a dull script, idiotic characters and a lack of fun kill it dead.
A simultaneously sweet yet also dour period tale of youth, ´Au Revoir´is an effective period drama. The strength of its young cast is complimented by a very restrained directing approach and an atmosphere of increasing fear, masterfully controlled by veteran filmmaker Louis Malle.
A sweet, amusing and often poignant lookback at a slice of film history, ´The Artist´may be Oscar bait, but one with actual charm. Stellar casting coupled with a flawless recreation of silent cinema make it entrancing, as does some smart writing dealing with the transition to talkies.
Too compressed and often in a hurry, 'Neverland' is never boring, but it squanders its great cast and premise with indecisive, clunky storytelling and a lack of charm or humour. And the mediocre action and lax CGI don't exactly help matters either.
While it may not be as groundbreaking or stylish as 'Sherlock', CBS' offering still offers an engaging crime procedural with a new dash of zany humour. Miller's mania and Watson's straight face make for a solid team, going from addict & helper, to mentor & apprentice and then to friends & equals.
Slick, smart and stylish, Mad Men is one of the most engaging dramas in recent TV memory. Of course, having a rock solid cast with Hamm on fine form, along with stylized production values and an evocative, Saul Bass-esque opening certainly go a long way too.
Expanding the show's mythology, alongside the characters, the second season offers up more technobabble-laden ghoulish treats. There even more of a sense of heart thanks to the evolving, and ultimately tested, relationship between the Bishops.
