Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MOVIES - with Craig Miller

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.
