Hobo with a Review

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 13 November 2015 12:53 (A review of Hobo with a Shotgun)

Rutger Hauer's brilliant in this film, which is satisfying to say since it hasn't been said for decades. This time we get to see him in a no-holds-barred ass-kicking exploitation movie that was wrung about from the ho-hum effort of 2007's Grindhouse double-bill.
The coolest thing that came out of that double bill was the trailers and the strangest/still very cool thing was that two of these trailers actually becomes films, with 'Machete' somehow still getting money to have a sequel.

The Less Than Great Buck Howard

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 8 November 2015 03:14 (A review of The Great Buck Howard)

A movie with great potential that falls a little flat. But Emily Blunt and Tom Hanks, with limited screen time, keep it interesting.

More Precocious Than Precious

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 8 November 2015 02:25 (A review of Precious)

Not sure why all the hype; but there certainly are some interesting aspects to it. Sibide and Patton are stand outs while Mo'nique's overrated performance is so ridiculous it's comical.

A Whistleblowin' We Shall Go

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 8 November 2015 02:08 (A review of The Whistleblower)

A frustrating movie until the end, and then we still aren't completely satisfied. This is a difficult subject matter to watch but Rachel Weisz, whose performance seems stiff at first, makes this movie very digestible and enjoyable, despite the subject matter.

More Semi-Producers

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 4 November 2015 01:25 (A review of The Producers)

Why do producers still think people like Broderick? A lesser effort than both the Broadway stage version and the original film from the 70's. The funny parts are still in the songs, but besides that they take up about 6 minutes of the film.

Delivery Me the Same, Man

Posted : 1 year, 9 months ago on 1 November 2015 12:26 (A review of Delivery Man)

Basically the same as the original (see my 2012 list for more), scene by scene and most of the dialogue. The difference maker is, of course, Vince Vaughn. He keeps this role under control (is this good or bad?) and proves he is a much more skilled actor than Patrick Haurd.

TV Junkie

Posted : 1 year, 10 months ago on 21 September 2015 11:48 (A review of TV Junkie)

What starts out as a unique telling of a man's life through the video has shot turns into a depressing but effective dive into the destructive world of drug use while providing for a family.

Rick Kirkham's ego is a little much but it's also fitting.

クズリ

Posted : 1 year, 10 months ago on 21 September 2015 11:24 (A review of The Wolverine)

Certainly better than the previous 'Wolverine' effort. I like how low key it was for such a movie, but I still wasn't really satisfied. By the time we get to the Silver Samurai I'm thankful we reached the climax and have now had my fill of X-Men movies.

The acting is possibly the best I've seen from the series, with a more believable Japanese cast than the US 'stars'.

Rewind This! You Won't Regret It

Posted : 1 year, 10 months ago on 21 September 2015 06:30 (A review of Rewind This!)

A fun documentary on the age of VHS, its impact on the industry, and the people who can't let the format go. It's an entire culture that loves the video life.

At times it seems like a struggle to find emotional qualities and rewarding aspects of the subject; but other times it really makes you yearn for certain days of yore.

View from the Toilet

Posted : 1 year, 11 months ago on 10 September 2015 02:13 (A review of View from the Top)



A corny, paint-by-number script with wooden acting. One-expression Ruffalo brings nothing, Applegate brings nothing and Paltrow let's us know, once again, she is not a valuable actress to the film community (but of course she'll continue to get roles). Not even Mike Myers could make this good.
