ReelViews for movies with cinematographer 'Javier Aguirresarobe'
With expertly crafted high seas disaster sequences, "The Finest Hours" feels more like a summer spectacle than a winter throw-away.
The film, which captures the feel if not the full charm of the written stories, comes across as an autopilot low-scare monster movie targeted at 7 and 8-year olds.
"Poltergeist" once again raises the "why bother?" question that accompanies about 95% of remakes.
Although at times overwrought and overtly manipulative, the film as a whole is like a kick to the gut.
