What I thought of… RIPD #Movie #Review

Leave a comment

So the other night I saw R.I.P.D. It was… ok.

We got it because the trailer made us laugh. The concept and storyline is pretty good. It’s kind of Men In Black meets Ghost Busters, but it falls short of both those classic feel-good movies by a) being extremely hard to hear (I swear all the actors were mumbling) and b) the script appears to have been dashed off the night before filming.

Real shame.

With the exception of Kevin Bacon it’s got a strong cast.

Here is the trailer, or you can watch it here.

Peter Jones started professional life as a particularly rubbish graphic designer, followed by a stint as a mediocre petrol pump attendant. After that he got embroiled in the murky world of credit card banking. Fun times.   Nowadays, Peter spends his days writing, or talking about writing. He’s written three novels; a Rom-Com (Romantic Comedy), A Crim-Com (Crime Comedy), and a Rom-Com-Ding-Dong (A sort-of Romantic-ish Comedy, with attitude). He’s currently working on his fourth novel, which - if it’s a musical - he’ll no doubt describe as a Rom-Com-Sing-Song. (Spoiler: It isn’t).   He is also the author of three and a half popular self-help books on the subjects of happiness, staying slim and dating. If you’re overweight, lonely, or unhappy – he’s your guy.   Peter doesn’t own a large departmental store and probably isn’t the same guy you’ve seen on the TV show Dragons’ Den.
