Clone Wars and X Files…

It was a bank holiday weekend in the UK, so I went to the Cinema a couple of times. I had already seen Hellboy II: The Golden Army in the week, so my choices were a little limited…

Start Wars: The Clone Wars: I was expecting this to be really bad, but it was actually OK. There is a lot going on and it looks really good. The biggest flaw in the film is it doesn’t really target any specific audience. It contains to much violence for young kids, but the “My Little Pony” moments will annoy adults. I don’t think I will ever watch the film again, but if it’s on TV or in a bargain bin at your local store, you might want to give it a go…

The X Files: I Want to Believe: I kinda liked the first couple of series of the X Files, then the formula started to bore me and I fell by the wayside. The film has been out in the UK for a few weeks and there are very few show times now, so it was sort-of accidental that I saw this film. I was actually quite pleasantly surprised. It’s less about “things that go bump in the night”, and more of a conventional thriller. If you are wanting aliens and UFOs, this isn’t the film for you. It’s basically a long, good quality, TV episode. That sounds quite damning, but it’s not meant to be. Compared to some of the drivel I watch at the cinema, this makes a nice change. More of a DVD/TV film, but a reasonable way to pass 104 minutes. 🙂

  1. My six-year old son was more than happy with Clone Wars.
    But then he (and my three year old daughter) also love Tom and Jerry cartoons. Animated violence seems less ‘icky’

  2. I took my boys to see Clone Wars last week (14 and 6). We had a blast and they really dug it. We are a pretty big Star wars house, though. I do tend to differ in my star wars opinions than many of my Star Wars fanboy friends though. I guess I just try to keep pre-conceived notions down and enjoy it. I’d love to see them continue the Clone Wars movies but I think this movie was a launch for the new TV Series.
