I wasn’t a huge fan of the show when I was a kid, but as the King of TV, I recognize the cultural impact it had on my generation and me and as an adult, the nostalgia it brings is of high quality. So as you might expect, I had high hopes.
Four Lions is a British movie you will probably never seen in an American movie theater because we are a fearful, stupid people. And that is sad. It is sad because Four Lions is a brilliant comedy about terrorists that completely disarms terrorism with humor. We can’t have that now, can we America?
You know, this movie has plenty of style, production value, and relevance for a comic book movie…IF IT WERE 1995. Unfortunately, for 2010, it is cheesy, and not in the ironic way, full of bad one-liners and a completely uninteresting script. Does anyone even know who Jonah Hex is? What could the percentage be of comic book nerds that not only know this character, but are also big fans champing at the bit for a movie version?
Who could properly handle a script about a divorced man that falls for a woman who has a 21 year old son that is WAY to close to her? You know, one of those mother/son relationships where she breast fed him until he was, like, five? Weird, right? And the son doesn’t want this guy getting to his mom; he wants to drive him away.
Is Knight and Day the beginning of Tom Cruise’s comeback?
For the first time ever, animated costuming should get a nod from the Oscars.
Twilight: Total Eclipse of the Heart nutshell Review: It’s better than the second, not as good as the first. But only because the first was the first. This is actually a pretty good movie.
It’s great to watch a documentary about something that you do which feels real and well done. This movie is a bit like Seinfeld’s Comedian, but better for me because she’s 45 years in and she shows that the “reason to do standup” doesn’t change…ever.
When a glowing review is “It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be,” you know it’s been a stupid summer for movies. So, yeah Predators is the one estuary that didn’t get that much of the BP spill.
This movie scrambled my brains so much I don’t have a clue as to what the fuck I’m talking about. Only to say that now I want to sneak around at 3am and put up 20-foot photos of myself on parking garages with a caption that reads, “Wanted for Treason.” just to see what kind of reaction it would get.
