The Interview (2014)
One star. I could not figure out how to leave 0 stars.
I really was not expecting much from the least funny members of the "Jewish Frat Pack." I waited as the entire movie flashed before my eyes to laugh out loud once? To chuckle repetitively? I think it made me smirk twice.
Super Bad was a great movie but some of the same slapstick is used in this film and is "been done, laughed that."
The ruler of Korea was not upset that the film made him look like an idiot, Kim Jong-Un is ticked because he did not laugh at all watching this.
The reason this film went straight to Netflix was because it was terrible. Seth Rogen needs to move to a directing role or perhaps look outside the Jewish Community and find real writers who write solid scripts.
Broken City (2013)
The kick is up and it's wide left! No points!
Every character in this Ho Hummer is evil, a liar, or full of important information. I never get the vibe of believing any of these characters are real like I did in the movie The Departed.
I can tell you the storyline but then again, do I really want to waste my time? Watch one of the hundreds of cop/detective shows on TV and you've seen this one before.
The script is simultaneously too complicated and clearly defined, and none of it is really that interesting or unique.
Wahlberg always seems sort of startled and one step behind and his acting seems like acting. Crowe is crude behind his lame attempt at a NY accent (Casting Directors can't find acting talent in New York City for these roles? Aussie go home!)Zeta-Jones, although being married to Michael Douglas, is again underused as a supporting actress.
Every actor/actress in this movie has made and will make better movies.
I give 5 stars for the money and effort to make this a good one. Sorry, just can't give 5 stars out for free! Again I say, Put your money in purchasing script, producer, director and casting director and as little as possible on overpaid and overrated actors!
Daniel Day Lewis wins the election for an Oscar!
Daniel Day Lewis wins the election for an Oscar! D Day Lewis shows us all once again, how hard work and preparation mixed with raw talent can master any given character. The movie focuses on the 13th Amendment and the role Abraham Lincoln played in its creation. Sally Field is solid as his wife and Tommy Lee Jones performs his theatrical duties to perfection.
Spielberg shows Lincoln & our political system work in a legal and intimate fashion while maintaining the reality of the period. A well selected supporting cast certifies that audience members will appreciate the movie in its entirety.
For those movie-goers who loved Snakes on a Plane, Anaconda 3 and Rambo V, please do not see this movie. You will not like it nor will your Gum Chewing, Bad Make-Up wearing date...
The Watch (2012)
Sorry, Seth Rogen, You and your Troupe come out flat...
Seriously. I love you guys! Jonah Hill rocked in Super Bad. Vince is classic in Wedding Crashers and Swingers. Ben Stiller is stellar in Starsky & Hutch and Something about Mary. Seth Rogen, I've seen better writing on a Transylvanian Monks bathroom wall.
It's the same old Shtick. Vince using his standard Zoey Deschanel quirkiness and sarcasm. Ben is same old Ben (with gray hairs). Jonah is completely flat delivering some lines that I guess were supposed to be funny. I laughed once during the entire movie and chuckled only twice thereafter. 3 Stars for 3 laugh/chuckles.
Message to these guys: Quit inbreeding talent and use different actors and actresses who can offer a different comedic twist. I know there are starving performers out there who are as funny at more than half the price of these guys. Seth, you need a new scene. Move to England for a few years and write for new talent. What you have now is completely stale!
Oh! I almost forgot, THIS MOVIE SUCKS MUTANT DONKEY SPHINXSTERS!
Ben Stiller may have the Oscar for this one!
Finally, the painted blue boy, Ben Stiller, stars in a well produced/created/written (Jennifer Jason Leigh) production where the humor is not over done and the story is well crafted and true to life.
Without spoiling the movie, I will just say that it is one worth seeing. Ben will certainly be up for an Oscar for this one. If they closed the balloting today, he would win.
I have total respect for the eye of Jennifer J Leigh. The cinematography is crisp and tip top, giving you the feeling that you are actually in the movie with these well crafted characters.
I hope everyone who reads this will see this movie because I know that you will not be disappointed.
Again Ben and Jennifer should win some awards for this one. Perhaps Will Ferrell and Tina Fey will break from the lame mainstream Hollywood movie machine...
The Crazies (2010)
Crazy if you buy a ticket!
Terrible. If IMDb would let me just post one word I would have stopped at "TERRIBLE" and not wasted my time writing any further.
The movie is based on an original screenplay done in Germany in 1973.
There are too many ridiculous "saved at the last second" scenes. The character development was below average at best. The acting of the two main characters was good but the movie was awful. What a waste of film.
The director of Texas Chainsaw should have got a hold of this one.
I felt like I was watching a B zombie movie with a larger budget. WARNING: Do not see this movie. WARNING: Do not see this movie.
Why? It is lame. The best part of the movie is the end.
1 star each to the leading characters and that's it.
Shutter Island (2010)
Shutter in the Aisle
Let me start by saying Martin Score has made some great movies in the 20th century. It is now the 21st century and i think the old dog should just fund movies and let youth take control of all aspects of film making.
I hate the "1 liners" in this movie along with the overdone musical scores. sometimes silence and raw sound are better than an artificial orchestra.
I'm a Leonardo fan but his weak Boston accent made his character lame, like a boy trying to play a man. Mark Wahlberg would have been the obvious choice here. Ben Kingsley earns 3 stars to save this movie from zero. He's always solid.
This movie could have been excellent with a 21st century approach. I was waiting for Arnold Schwarzenegger to have a cameo and give some stupid one liner.
Sorry, this movie is weak.
The Wolfman (2010)
Woof Man! Sorry, not good.
This movie has its fair share of lows and minimal action packed highs.
Let's talk about the good things first. There are several well-crafted scenes which scare you. The special effects and gore are believable and effective. OK, that's about it.
The other 90% of the movie contains drab, run-of-the-mill acting. Benicio and Hopkins seem as if they're reading the script at times and without inflection or true meaning. (This will bore you, keep you uninterested and may even put you to sleep).
The Elfking from the movie Lord of the Rings, presents the only solid bit of acting. (They'll probably keep him for Wolfman II).
This movie fails to address how, why and when Werewolves acquired the gift of invisibility.
For Valentines day, if you want your girl to grab a hold of you, take her to see this movie. If your looking to see a good movie, watch the movie Crazy Heart, which is much much better!
Daybreakers is a decent movie
I knew this was a vampire movie. I wasn't expecting much. After a few stereotypical vampire traits and features are revealed (-1 star) the movie explores the fine details of what mankind would be like if vampires populated the earth.
I like the plot and characters. William Dafoe used to many nonhumorous one-liners that I thought were used in the early 90's as Arnold Schwarzenegger exhausted the supply and the demand for them. (-1 Star for one-liners).
The action is plentiful but some of the carnage and blood, which in this movie is precious, is too messy. If blood was scarce they would not have let it splash all over the place like a bunch of mindless zombies. (-1 Star for unreal bloodletting).
The acting is solid and I was entertained despite the -3 stars. I would not rush into theatres to see it, but it is definitely worth renting and viewing on a 46+ inch screen...
They won't let me give this movie a ZERO!
Where do I start? What should I rip on? Who should I say was the worst? What were they thinking? It is almost the year 2010. The "Musical" is best left in NY both on and off Broadway where it belongs. Yes, Moulin Rouge was a success and Chicago perhaps, but enough is enough. Please trim the fat in movie production and allow modern day movie makers to show their wonderful creations on the screen.
Kidman was out of her element in Rouge but pulled it off due to the crack-paced cinematography. In this movie, Kidman is exposed and fails miserably.
Day Lewis is way out of his as well. Maybe in his 20's and 30's he could have managed but not now. He stinks! Hudson is a B Actress in this one.
Penelope Cruz can hang her head high for a strong performance with limited resources including a terrible script and musical scores.
This is a horror film. Everything is terrible. Anyone who gave this movie more than 6 stars must work the company. The main purpose of the IMDb review to to WARN people to see a bad movie or TELL people to see a great movie. I'm WARNING all of you, listen! DO NOT SEE THIS MOVIE IT STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN! If this were a game of Bad Santa, this is the gift you don't want to get stuck with! It could be a comedy or a horror movie, you decide. LOL!
