"Irresistible" is hardly a hard-hitting political satire and while it is funny enough, with Steve Carell and Rose Bryne in its cast, I expected a lot more. The story of a Democratic strategist helping a retired veteran run for mayor in a small, conservative Midwest US town, has some unexpected turns in its ultimate message about the political campaign system in America.
Everyone seems to enjoy to story of quirky Bernadette (Cate Blanchett), so I it appears that I am in the minority in my lack of connection with the character, who I did not find sympathetic at all. Instead, my sympathies and frustrations lay with her husband and daughter, which made the already slow story drag on once it really got going with its story of Bernadette's disappearance and subsequent epic adventure to rediscover her creativity.
"Greenland" is a film about an extinction level asteroid event which leads to chaos in the search for shelter for there to be any hope of humanity's survival. It is an intense ride of many twists and turns but ultimately offers nothing new to the genre. Still, it is an entertaining watch and Gerard Bulter does a decent job as the story's protagonist.
A small mission to Mars crew faces the impossible consequences when an unplanned passenger is discovered…. "Stowaway" had so much potential in its cast (including Anna Kendrick and Toni Collette) and concept. It starts promisingly (plot holes aside), however, it drags along to a predictable but unsatisfyingly abrupt ending.
