    Kate Beckinsale is such a bad actress she can't even be bothered to convince me she's being electrocuted. Her "I'm being electrocuted" face is much the same as her "I'm conveying an emotion of some kind" face. Credit to Tanya Wexler for making a film even remotely entertaining while having to work around her leading lady, a blatantly cheap backlot set and a cliched hackneyed script. The scene where Kate is being chased through a hospital is actually very cool.…

    Dark Shadows

    I remember when a Tim Burton film was something kooky that the whole world would fall in love with. Beetlejuice, Edward Scissorhands, even his Batman (although I wasn't keen on it). But increasingly Burton's films have lost their way. Dark Shadows is a mess. Disjointed, rarely keeping any character continuity from one scene to the next. Its only saving grace is Johnny Depp's rather familiar central character. As per usual he throws enough heart into the performance that it stands…
