Review Revue: Hellboy II vs. Meet Dave vs. Journey 3D?

Watch and see what the critics are saying!

by | July 11, 2008 | Comments

There are three movies opening in wide release this week, but who are we kidding? Hellboy II: The Golden Army is riding the biggest wave of buzz. Watch this week’s Review Revue as we discuss how Guillermo del Toro‘s fantastical superhero sequel is faring with the critics, and if there’s any hope for the competing flicks of Brendan Fraser (Journey to the Center of the Earth) and Eddie Murphy (Meet Dave).

Guillermo del Toro returns to his beloved Hellboy franchise with a second adventure of epic proportions, forgoing the real-world evils of the first Hellboy for decidedly more fantastic fare. But challenging the horned comic-book hero for this weekend’s ticket sales are new films from fellow A-listers who’ve built up considerable box office cache. Journey to the Center of the Earth stars the hammy Brendan Fraser in a 3-dimensional family adventure filled with dinosaurs and various projectiles; Meet Dave reunites the hammy Eddie Murphy with his Norbit director in a star vehicle about tiny aliens on Earth who live in a spaceship shaped like Eddie Murphy.

Without further ado, watch the Review Revue!

And you won’t want to miss the Review Revue next week, as we discuss the critical response to Mamma Mia, Space Chimps, and Batman’s highly anticipated return to the screen, The Dark Knight!
