A Missed Nostalgic Reunion

Posted : 1 year, 10 months ago on 27 November 2015 06:35 (A review of American Reunion)




Not much of a plot here, essentially a series of scenes attempting to make us laugh. It's like "Grown Ups" but actually funny at times.

I still found this fourth entry interesting as I have grown up along with the characters, with me being only a year younger than them I can relate with the characters and where they are in life, with each film.

What's next 'American Death'?  I'll still watch it.

Life on Four Strings

Posted : 1 year, 10 months ago on 26 November 2015 02:23 (A review of Jake Shimabukuro: Life on Four Strings)

A documentary on the master of the ukelele himself. This doc takes a beautiful look into an interesting man and the effect he has on the music world. As a production it ends up being mediocre and relies completely on its subject.

A Sapphirical Movie

Posted : 1 year, 10 months ago on 26 November 2015 01:01 (A review of The Sapphires)

A fun, true story from Australia with great singing moments and likable characters who keep you smiling throughout.
 I was not impressed with the direction and the unnecessary parts that weren't based on the real story. Mainly, how does a soldier get the chance to just follow his love interest around Viet Nam, as if he were a college dropout in the USA?

Not Enough Said

Posted : 1 year, 10 months ago on 25 November 2015 11:39 (A review of Enough Said)



Fun, charming script but nothing real original about the story and it's quite predictable. What makes it watchable are the well-cast leads and nicely developed supporting characters.

Hobo with a Review

Posted : 1 year, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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, 11 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.
