GI Joe: Retaliation
It’s very unlikely that this will feature in my top ten come the end of the year, however I can’t deny having some love for it’s predecessor. It was cheesy, over the top and had the worst Scottish accent since Robert Duvall in A Shot at Glory, but it was fun and a had a strong cast. The sequel was supposed to see the light of day last year, however a decision to post-convert into 3D (yay he screamed sarcastically) and re-shoot a lot of the film to include more Channing Tatum, pushed the release date back almost a year. This won’t be The Godfather Part II, however at best it might just match The Expendables Part II.
The Lone Ranger
Johnny Depp stars in a film with Helena Bonham Carter and Tim Burton isn’t directing? If this film was released last year I’d wager it was a tell tale sign of the Mayan apocalypse. Instead it’s Gore Verbinski that has taken the taking of converting the classic TV series for a modern audience. Armie Hammer takes the lead as the Lone Ranger himself; however it’s Depp’s Tonto that caught most people’s attention. Stylistically it’s looking great, with a supernatural theme running through it, the film proves to be interesting at least.
