Review: Pain & Gain

It’s an unsettling, almost shameful thing to admit, but Michael Bay has made a good film. It’s a film that, of course, features explosions, scantily clad women and spinning cameras. He’s not become an entirely different person after all. But in Pain & Gain, the true story of a mid-90s plot by Miami bodybuilders to kidnap and extort their way to the top, Bay has made an action-comedy that’s exciting, hilarious and, crucially, self-aware.

That this film has it tongue lodged firmly within its cheek becomes clear in the opening five minutes. We see Mark Wahlberg’s fitness trainer Danny Lugo attempt to outrun a Swat team in the most lethargic slow motion ever before a ‘Six months earlier’ preamble tosses us into a sun-drenched world of muscles and bikinis, where you needn’t have a personality when you can spout self-improvement mantras; and where value

Katy Perry's "Roar" Lyric Video Is an Emoji Dream; Critics Compare Song to Sara Bareilles "Brave"

Katy Perry's
Omg, did you see the lyric video for Katy Perry's new single "Roar?" Text all your BFFs, because it's an emoji dream! Yes, K.P. got a lot of help from those cutesy graphic symbols in spelling out her uplifting lyrics on the screen of her iPhone. Some of Katy's non-emoji, people pals also help out in getting the song's "I am a champion, and you're gonna hear me roar" message across. Texts from "Shanny" (Shannon Woodward), Ferras, "Johnny Wu" (aka stylist Johnny Wujak), "Mamma Mia" (Mia Moretti) and "Skeet" (Young Skeeter) and a few other friends help to spell out Katy's powerful lyrics, which she reads while eating breakfast, sitting on the...

Film Review: Clever Cast Can’t Quite Save Crazy ‘Pain & Gain’

Chicago – Michael Bay’s “Pain & Gain” tells such a ridiculous story that it has to be true. Based on the infamous case of the Sun Gym Gang, a trio of bodybuilders who committed some unspeakable, bizarre crimes, “Pain & Gain” nearly works through the sheer charisma and talent of its A-list cast. A bloated running time, Bay’s problems with pacing, and a pretty juvenile script hold it back from truly clicking but there is enough manic energy to this larger-than-life story that it could practically numb one into thinking it connects as well as it should.

Rating: 3.0/5.0

“Pain & Gain” will inspire film goers to consider who might have done more with the same story. What would Joel & Ethan Coen’s “Pain & Gain” look like? (It would have been a dark, comic masterpiece and the lead role probably would have been played by Michael Stuhlbarg). What would Martin Scorsese’s “Pain & Gain” feel like?

Michael Bay Artificially Inflates the Already Insane Yet True Events of Pain & Gain

Daniel Lugo (Mark Wahlberg) believes life has cheated him. Doesn't America promise riches and luxury to people who deserve them? He's worked hard to build his body into a hulking knot of muscles; success should follow. But Lugo—the lead in Michael Bay's neon-noir ode to Miami, muscle tone, and the modern American dream—is stuck as an underpaid personal trainer at Miami Lakes' Sun Gym, where he boosts the confidence of customers far less chiseled than he and dreams of a better (read: richer) life.

Inspired to be a "doer" after a seminar featuring inspirational speaker Johnny Wu (Ken Jeong), Lugo turns his newfound patriotic zeal into action. He rounds up two accomplices: fellow body-obsessed gym buddy Adrian Doorbal (Anthony Mackie), whose steroid use has "messed ...

David Henry Hwang: Chinglish Longacre Theatre, NYC

Chinglish is the word coined for those humorously bad Chinese-to-English mistranslations found on signs, in electronics manuals, etc. That sort of thing is hardly exclusive to China (there are plenty of examples from around the world here), but thanks to the first-world economic implosion, China is where the stakes are highest now. The new play by Chinese-American playwright David Henry Hwang (his first on Broadway in 13 years) is built around both this crucial transition and mistranslation. Bring your opera glasses, because being able to read supertitles has never been more important.

Our hero lead schlub, Daniel Cavanaugh (Gary Wilmes), opens the play alone, explaining to an unseen conference audience the secret of his business success in China. As his business is signs, this talk includes memorably mistranslated examples, most prominently "Fuck the certain price of goods," which makes perfect sense once it's

Video: Jean Claude The Gumming Zombie

When a toothless Frenchman finds himself the latest victim of a zombie plague, he is befriended by an overly-wholesome family that belongs more in a 1950s sitcom than the world of today -- except that Father’s hobby is black magic rather than golf, and Granny has a thing for guys from “the continent”, even if they’re not quite among the living…

All this an more in queer filmmaker Johnny Wu's, Jean Claude The Gumming Zombie, a send-up of horror and comedy cliches. Johnny mixes and matches conceits as far apart as radio plays and Old Yeller to tell an inventive and distinct film.
