MOVIE 43 ( MA)
Stars: Kate Winslet, Hugh Jackman Director: Various
Available: Now on DVD and BD HOLLYWOOD gets it all sorts of wrong in this episodic “grossout” comedy which looks to make more of an impact through its vulgarities than it does with comedy. Sadly, only a few of the vignettes work, the rest … ( shudder) … you’ll want to forget.
HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS ( MA)
Stars: Jeremy Renner, Gemma Arterton Director: Tommy Wirkola
Available: Now on DVD and BD THIS thoroughly wasteful reinvention of the classic fairy tale characters at war with child- abducting witches could have been a fun trashy time, but sadly it’s a mess and diabolically dumb for the most part.
YOU WILL MEET A TALL DARK STRANGER ( M)
Stars: Naomi Watts. Anthony Hopkins Director: Woody Allen
Available: Now on DVD GOOD Woody Allen films are unmissable but a lot of the rest are instantly forgettable and this cold and unengaging romantic drama following the tumultuous love lives of three British couples definitely is sadly one of “the rest”.
THE SWEENEY ( MA)
Stars: Ray Winstone, Ben Drew Director: Nick Love
Available: Now on DVD and BD IN typical action movies, smarts usually take a backseat to gun play and car chases and this Brit action thriller about a tough- guy copper and his hardened entourage nicking bank robbers is no exception.
