If Captain America: The Winter Soldier is a spy film, The Amazing Spider-Man 2 is a chick flick. I’ve seen this movie twice. You might be thinking, “I remember you tweeting that you didn’t like it that much the first time and yet…”? Yes, but think about it. If I hadn’t seen this I’d have to see some ADULT film. Now, it’s been out two weeks so I should be able to vent and celebrate and all that without anyone freaking out, right? There’s spoilers coming up is what I’m saying.Details
Not only is the role of Murray in Fading Gigolo Woody Allen’s best role – and performance – in decades, the film’s initial scenes crackle with the economy, wit, and simplicity of Allen’s lightest soufflés. Unfortunately, writer and director John Turturro intends a deeper tale than these initial bites of joy suggest, and, stretching the metaphor, the main course has none of the bite of the hors d’oeuvres.Details
I’d gone to the multiplex to see Captain America: Winder Solider, which I really enjoyed. I had a little more time to kill so I went to see Divergent because it was the movie that was starting next. Yes, I paid twice. I’m a ComedyFilmNerd, and we hold ourselves to high standards. I hadn’t heard anything about it, so I had zero expectations.Details
At a slender 97 minutes, Filth, adapted faithfully from Irvine Welsh’s terrific 1998 novel, is 95 minutes too long. From the opening monologue by James McAvoy’s Bruce Robertson, decrying Scotland as the place that gave the world “deep fried Mars Bars,” you know you’re in terrible hands all around. Not only has that gag dated, so has the entire world these characters populate. Yet the film is set in the here and now, and its characters’ attitudes have moved from humorously cutting-edge to deeply offensive.Details
