A heist-thriller by any other name is still a heist-thriller.
In I Origins, writer/ director Mike Cahill uses the old cliche ‘The Eyes Are the Mirror to the Soul’ to make something relatively original.

I cannot give a film a pass simply because it is fun to watch. There are plenty of really bad films that are fun to watch, but that doesn't make them good films. Which is why to some degree it pains me to give the latest entry in the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise a modestly negative review. It almost gets everything I like about the series right, but once you leave the theatre it will dawn on you that what you just saw wasn't all that great.
