Beach, The

Rated 3.0 Like him or not, Leonardo DiCaprio makes this silly film watchable and even moderately enjoyable at times. Granted, that’s not a glowing endorsement. Leo, as we are now so fond of calling him, travels to a forbidden island, where he gets to smoke dope and play Gameboy all he wants. I enjoyed the scenery in this picture, loved the soundtrack and laughed my ass off. The film became truly bad when Leo descended into madness five minutes after he was left alone in the jungle (I almost bust a lung laughing when he hissed like a cat at some girl). It’s often bad, but I still liked it a bit. It’s not as good as the original Lord of the Flies, but it’s much better than the remake. Somehow, I don’t think I’m convincing you to go see this picture.
