Movie Reviews: Von Ryan's Express + Wreck-It Ralph + 2 others

Von Ryan’s Express (1965)
This WW2 POW escape movie has poor logic, no torrent of sense and stars Trevor Howard, Frank Sinatra and James Brolin. The POWS plan to escape by hijacking a fright train and going to Switzerland. There is no sensible eloquence and this was unflattering and full of catastrophic lack of judgement. There is also a lack of ethical behaviour and this was less than optimum and was deliciously awful and inexcusably ghastly. I was not greatly impressed by this. BTW they escape. Most of them.

Best Line:
“If only one gets out, it’s a victory.”

Wreck-It Ralph (2012)
An arcade game bad-guy is tired of living in a dump and being disliked by people. So he goes on a quest cue recognisable games, a moral message and trips into various other gamescapes. This was okay but did TPTB not know that the song 'Shut Up And Drive' isn't about driving?

Best Lines:
“I hate you.”
“I get that a lot.”

“Candy coated heart of darkness.”

“Old but cool.”

The Butcher Boy (1997)

Atonement (2007)
