Jeremy Lebens of Media Stomp wrote,"Every so often a film comes out and gets a ton of praise and positive buzz, even though the trailers looked like complete crap. I usually tend to wait these ones out for home video, but if I read enough positive stuff from trusted writers, then I usually find myself taking the plunge. Hanna was one of those films and what a disappointment it was. It felt extremely slow and boring with barely anything happening. The action was average at best and the story seemed to never go anywhere. The only redeeming quality of the film was the score, composed by The Chemical Brothers. I honestly think I would have been better off watching a blank screen while listening to the score. I should have trusted my gut instinct that was telling me to avoid Hanna as if it were the plague. Now I sit here with six dollars less in my pocket. Thankfully I saw this early in the day and didn't have to pay full price for a ticket."
LRA writes: Our efforts to avert disaster by avoiding this past weeks horrible offerings were only partially successful when our back up films turned out to be no better with only a couple exceptions. Other than Brian, who played a bit of catch up this week by explaining why both Hanna and Rango were two of last years best films, James and I found ourselves on the complete opposite side of the spectrum with our film choices which include the new fantasy/adventure Journey 2: The Mysterious Island and the comedy(?) Tim & Eric's Billion Dollar Movie. We also find some time to cover some recent television shows we have been watching as well as our thoughts on the 84th Academy Awards show. Featured music this week is from the album "Journey's Greatest Hits" and the "Rango" motion picture soundtrack.
