Movie of the Week Catch Up: RIPD / Percy Jackson Sea f Monsters

Apologies, my movie blogs have been sparse. I had a few weeks when for one reason or another I missed my regulasr Wednesday movie trips with H, but I'm playing catch-up with these reviews, however brief.

Percy Jackson and the Sea of Monsters
Boring and formulaic despite having Nathan Fillion and Anthony Stewart Head doing just about as well as anyone could with their respective supporting roles. I quite enjoyed the first Percy Jacksion outing, so this was a bit of a disappointment, especiially since we went out of our way to find a movie theatre still showing it. Logan Lerman is personable enough but somehow failed to sparkle in this..

RIPD
Rest in Peace Department. A cop (Reynolds) makes a dangerous mistake, tries to correct it and the results are fatal. He finds himself assigned to the afterlife police department where his new partner is a crazy western lawman. Not as bad as it sounds. In fact, quite watchable for a Wednesday afternoon.outing, but the memory of it is fading fast. Ryan Reynolds is a bit forgettable, but Jeff Bridges adds a bit of sparkle to his role as the dead lawman. Kevin Bacon plays a convincing villain.

Comments

Kevin Bacon has made a very successful career playing convincing (baby-faced) villains.
