Born-again Bourne is refreshing

Saturday July 30, 2016

JAMES BOND or Jason Bourne - that is the question.

WHEN THE leading crew members of USS Enterprise in Star Trek Beyond are left deserted on an unknown planet, the usually unfazed Captain James T Kirk (Chris Pine) grows a little doubt.

TO THIS day, I have never seen the original Ghostbusters, so allow me to begin this review of the 2016 version by pretending it involves no duplication of the 1984 blockbuster.

THE MUCH loved children’s writer Roald Dahl in 1982 published an award-winning book called the BFG (Big Friendly Giant) which has been recently adapted as a theatrical live-action film directed by Steven Spielberg. 

IT’S BEEN a year of sequels and remakes that have really captured the heart and soul of the entertainment industry.

IT’S BEEN a heck of a week, and I thought it went by pretty quickly.

BEFORE I get judged for what will follow next, let me clarify something.

IT WASN’T that hard to choose the magic-theme heist tale Now You See Me 2 over horror thriller The Conjuring 2.

SOME THINGS are better left untouched.

And one of them has to be the Ninja Turtles.
