While driven by charismatic performances from the terrific leads, 'The Love Punch' often resorts to the laziest approximations of old people humor.
It is likely impossible to watch 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' without grinning the whole way through. Even if you don’t connect to its themes or enjoy its story, the world that it lays out for the viewer is so full of life and humor that the smile becomes inevitable.
'Long Weekend' feels like the work of a filmmaker with no real investment in the genre. It feels like the production was given a series of pegs, and instead of choosing one, they decided to use all of them at once.
'Haunt' hails from that particular brand of horror movie that ignores good sense as it pursues an established formula. It is terribly uninteresting, the film simply unwilling to follow its story down its more logical avenues.
'DOTA: Nakakabaliw' is so bad that it feels like a scam.
As a whole, 'Bang Bang Alley' is more than worth a look.
'Rio 2' doesn’t seem to expect much out of its audience, and settles for being a delivery system for bright colors and radio friendly tunes.
What little distinction or energy 'Diary ng Panget' might have is lost in translation, the lackluster direction failing to serve the material.
'Saga: Curse of the Shadow' mainly ends up being pretty boring.
'Son of God,' can't justify its own existence. The material isn't all that good to begin with, but it is certainly better viewed within its original context.
