ONLY GOD FORGIVES

More nastiness from director Nicolas Winding Refn. It's painful to watch Ryan Gosling sleepwalk through this horrible mess. High camp: pure crap. No no no.

Ricky Gervais's BBC4 TV mini-series brought to us via Netflix. It's good, mainly because of Kerry Godliman. Kinda funny, ends well: yes! 
 

BOY

07/13/2013

 

Taika Waititi's sweet coming of age dramedy, set in 1984, about a motherless impoverished New Zealand child coping with the return of his absentee / recently paroled father. Beautiful, loved it, but not subtitled and the accents are charming, but dense: put your headphones on for this one!

Coming of age on the Mississippi River tale from writer/director Jeff Nichols (Take Shelter.) I don't love the steadicam, but yes yes yes: loved it!

THE CAMPAIGN

It's funny, crude, and fun to watch: yes!

Bi-Polar Disorder never looked so good. I love Bradley Cooper, but not Jennifer Lawrence, so this was awkward... Unless your a fan of Robert Di Niro, and/or wonder what Chris Tucker has been up to besides Rush Hour: pass.
 

CASA DE MI PADRE

Funny telenovela spoof. I love Will Ferrell, Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal, so yes, see it.

 

KLOWN

Hollywood is SO going to remake this hilarious social comedy about two men, a boy, and the women in their wake on a canoe trip / "tour de pussy".  Danish TV stars Casper Christensen and Frank Hvam spin-off their TV show, and team-up to write, and star in this future Danny McBride vehicle.
 

EVERYTHING MUST GO

It's okay. More of a drama than a comedy. Will Ferrell makes it watchable.

CEDAR RAPIDS

07/20/2011

 
How long is this Man-Child obsession going to last? And in how many movies will Ed Helms  portray a character in a doomed relationship who falls in love with a blond prostitute? Not many laugh out loud moments, a slight quirky film with John C. Reilly: so therefore you must see it.
