Diary of a Wimpy Kid 2
Click on the links to watch the trailers:
Almas Condenadas (My Soul to Take) - If you thought Wes Craven was just holed up doing Scream 4 then think again. Horror director Craven has been responsible for giving us some of the best fright-flicks made, Nightmare of Elm Street and Scream being some of the best. Unfortunately he seems to be resting on those laurels a bit with this release. My Soul to Take, is by all accounts, a limp, disappointing teen slasher film. Shame - many of Craven's fans are waiting for a return to form.
Diario de Greg 2. La Ley de Rodrick (Diary of a Wimpy Kid. Rodrick Rules) - The second adaptation of Jeff Kinney's books about a geeky kid called Greg. This installment tells the tale of Greg and Rodrick, his mean older brother, and what they get up to when they're left home alone for the weekend. Funnier and faster than the prequel apparently.
Hanna - Joe Wright's thriller falls a little flat and seemingly takes its lead from Luc Bresson's Leon. In this case Saoirse Ronan is the child trained up to kill by a German-accented Eric Bana. The film opens with the pair hiding out in some frozen landscape somewhere in Europe with Bana jumping on Ronan every two minutes to test her ability to fight off annoying people. She then finds out that she can go out into the metropolis, something that she's always dreamed of, but has to let her deadly enemy, played by Cate Blanchet know, by flicking a switch on something called transponder. Weird and also a little boring.
Insidious - Another horror film with stellar makers (this time the team behind Paranormal Activity and Saw), that fails to deliver. Using the age-old set-up of a young family in a haunted house, kid falls into a coma and his soul unfortunately goes somewhere else. Cue an onslaught of pseudo-scary, comic, undead characters. Then, in a move straight out of Poltergeist, an old, unassuming ghost-chaser appears with her two geeky assistants to try and chase out the baddies.
