DVD reviews: No Strings Attached and more

No Strings Attached

Cast Natalie Portman, Ashton Kutcher, Cary Elwes
Director Ivan Reitman
Rating 4/5

Kutcher and Portman play Adam and Emma, two acquaintances who have been bumping into one another for the past 15 years, but have never done anything more than talk. Suddenly, after one night together, they agree to start a casual fling, thinking they can do it with... no strings attached! But – spoiler alert! – such arrangements rarely work out for the best, and things fall apart when love gets in the way.

e+ says A sweet romcom, with a fantastic supporting cast bringing the LOLs.

It’s Kind of a Funny Story

Cast Keir Gilchrist, Zach Galifianakis, Emma Roberts
Directors Ryan Fleck, Anna Boden
Rating 4/5

A teenager, who checks himself into a mental health clinic for some time out, finds an unlikely mentor, a potential new romance and a new start.

e+ says A bit out of the ordinary, but this one truly has substance!

Sniper Reloaded

Cast Billy Zane, Chad Michael Collins, Richard Sammel
Director Claudio Fäh
Rating 1/5

When his team is ambushed by a sniper during a UN peacekeeping mission, sole survivor, Marine Sergeant Brandon Beckett teams up with the expert sniper who trained his father to find the shooter and settle a score.

e+ says Probably best for hardcore Billy Zane fans only.


Cast Ryan Phillippe, Val Kilmer, Will Forte
Director Jorma Taccone
Rating 3/5

It's been 10 years since his wife was murdered, and US Army special operative, MacGruber, has sworn off a life of war to embrace the peace, man. But when he's told that his country needs him to find a nuclear weapon that's been stolen by his arch nemesis, Dieter, MacGruber knows he's the only man for the job and assembles an elite team of experts to hunt down the thieving villain and bring him to justice.

e+ says If movie spoofs are your thing (and they are ours!), then this extended SNL sketch will be right up your alley.
