The world could have used a great CG reimagining of William Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream. What a shame this isn’t it.
Still there are some good moments to be had from Strange Magic – Alan Cumming rocking out as the Bog King and Evan Rachel Ward flittering through several musical styles as Princess Marianne of the Fairy Kingdom come to mind.

Once again, Johnny Depp shows his talent for slipping completely into a character. What a shame that this character is almost completely unnoteworthy.
Mortdecai (the movie) wants to be a knowing send up of sixties caper movies, espionage thrillers and, possibly, the superb BBC series Lovejoy. Instead, it’s Johnny Depp plays the worst of Mr. Bean – in a Rolls.

It’s January – which means time for studios to dump all the crap they couldn’t release during the more competitive times of the year. But someone forgot to tell TWC-Dimension/eOne – they released what is almost certain to be a family classic this week: Paddington.

The Spierig Brothers have a distinctly skewed take on genre film – take their ‘vampires won’ film Daybreakers – and they make smart, unique entertainments.
It is only natural, then, that they’d adapt the ultimate time travel short story – Robert A. Heinlein’s All You Zombies – for film. It’s one of the trickiest time travel/paradox stories ever written and they persuaded Ethan Hawke (who also starred in Daybreakers) to take the lead role, a Temporal Agent who seems more suited to his job than anyone else.
Predestination comes to home video on February 10th. Extras include a ten-part making of documentary and a blooper reel. For further details – and a look at the trailer – follow the jump.
