Crop And Save
Crash and Burn
Well what can I say, the commercial made this film look interesting. But be warned: it is overlong and plodding...so much so that it seems to last for hours on end. Trouble is, the only interesting portion of the film is at the beginning with the plan hitting a storm and then all the mechanical mishaps. Unfortunately there is one long film to try to sit through. I like Denzel. I really do. But he too much of a likable guy to carry off the druken pilot character that the entire film hangs it head on. You can figure out the story line and the ending way before it happens. The characters are lifeless and cardboard cut outs. I cannot understand why FLight was nominated for any awards. So this film is not my cup of tea. It seems to be liked by many. I just found it dull.
A Christmas Story 2 (2012)
You can't go home again
Here's proof that you can not go home again . This film is totally heartless and soulless....so pale in comparison to the original which has evolved into a modern day classic. There is good reason this film went straight to video. Please do not waste your money on it. I had a cheap rent from amazon.com. I thought it might cheer me up ...having the flu and all.
Back is our Ralphie now at 15 and he wants a car for Christmas. The old man will not spend 40 cents per pound for a turkey so he is involved in some subplot to catch a fish for Christmas dinner. Part of the problem with this video is the incredible number of subplots...each more uninteresting as the others; including a candy cane fight at Higbee's, a Santa who walks out on the job, poor Randy getting dressed up in tons of layers to go outside, and a love interest for Ralphie. Even the "leg lamp" shows up for an encore.
A Christmas Story 2 looks like one of those made for TV films on SYFY or Lifetime. The sets are cardboard...but then again so is the acting. It makes "The Santa Clause 3 and 4 look like art films. Costumes are barely period. I dare you...I double dog dare you...to watch the preview. You will see exactly what I mean.
Someone was out to make a buck. But then, that is what Christmas is all about.
Funny...I want more
Very short episodes (about 3 minutes each) and iffy production values but this show has a natural funny charm. I only wish there were more episodes even though the writers seem to be running out of ideas. The first season is much better than the second. You will recognize many actors in bit parts throughout the run of the show. Handsome Owen Marshall is charming and funny as a straight man living is a world that has gone gay. From boy bands to fanny packs to straight pride parade, the show offers a satirical viewpoint on "coming out in America." Sadly, the gay characters are all a bit to the extreme, while the closeted straights are the new normal.
Lots fo Yawn, Little Whoof
Not totally awful since there are a few hot guys scattered throughout the film. But a weak script with even weaker acting and very sluggish direction do not make much of a film. Yes, In know it is an indie, but let us stop making excuses for indie films. The film revolves around the Tyler character and his coming out in the bear scene. Everyone in the film is so crazy over this Tyler guy but he just is not all that. Highpoint of he film, if that is what you want to call it, is a hilariously bad scene of Tyler learning how to bowl. The marketing department promotes this film as channeling the Sex in the City series. Not even close. Another subplot has to to with a character who wants to get his stomach stapled. And yet another subplot is about a bear couple trying to decide if they want to "open up their relationship." All in all, the is movie that goes nowhere and is deadly boring along the way. My advice: go rent anything but this film
Butch Camp (1996)
Butch Camp is Bad Camp
An amateur production filmed in Chicago with with lots of stereotypes. From dykes with bikes, to cross dressers to bitchy queens, the fill is a complete guide to gay stereotypes. The film goes on way too long...you will find yourself looking at watch...A LOT. Bad script. Even worst editing. Lousy acting. The film half of the film is barely passable, the second half is terrible. Just turn off the DVD and go do other more important things...like ironing. Paul Denniston is a likable sort but cannot carry a film. So called comedian Judy Tenuta is embarrassing to watch. Her segments seem to have been filmed separately and inserted into the film randomly. The rest of the cast should look for a new line of work...acting is out.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)
You forget Sarah because this movie drags on and on and on
Maybe this movie would have worked with a better cast. Maybe this comedy would have worked if it has a sense of humor. As it stands, Foregetting Sarah Marshall is a totally forgettable film that will leave you wondering how it ever got made. It is kind of like several comic strips taped together to make a story.
Totally miscast is Jason Segel who makes a poor choice for a leading man. How did he get the part? Oh, he is the screenwriter. Why do we need to see him nude umpteenth times in film...and shots of his "johnson?" He is just not a comic. Jason is the weakest link of the movie just as he is on the TV show "How I Met Your Mother."
A waste of film...and your time.
Gee, I need to write at least ten lines but can sum it up nicely: THIS MOVIE IS A PIECE JUNK AND NOT WORTH YOUR TIME. What were they producers thinking when they green lighted this mess. It is one of those films that make you feel embarrassed for the cast and want to kill the writers. No redeeming values. No comic value. Lousy acting. I could go on and on. Such is the sorry state of gay cinema. Let's see, the plot device behind this film is a content to determine who can screw and get screwed the most during spring break. As impossible as it many seem, this film makes "Justin Loves Kelly" seem like a work of art. No need to view this film. You have been things to do with your life.
Summer Catch (2001)
Summer Catch is not much of a catch.
Nothing much here but a nice little movie about baseball. Yet another film that looks and sounds like it was supposed to be a made for TV movie. The movie's saving grace is "eye candy" Freddie who looks great in - and out - of uniform. Make this film a drinking game: down a shot every time the writers find another way to get Freddie naked, shirtless or running around in his underwear.
Lots of minor characters with uninteresting story lines. The trailer makes this film seem like another teen sex romp but it really is more focused on baseball.
The Promotion (2008)
Much Ado About Nothing
Take a moment to watch the credits.
See all the people involved in this movie? Did not one person have the guts to say "this is a real stinker." All in all this movie is waste of film...and a waste of your time. You will find yourself thinking " Maybe something is about to happen. But nothing does. The movie plods along and has a serious lack of funny. There is major talent in this film but they have nothing to work with. The film appears to be made with a first draft script...maybe they planned to do rewrites but ran out of time.
On a positive note, the scenes filmed in Chicago make the city look great. Everything else in the film is ca-ca. Note to costume designer: Next time you get a film, take some time to make sure the clothing fits the actors.
Do not buy the DVD. Do not rent.
Goldfish Memory (2003)
Goldfish Memory...It's more fun to watch your goldfish swim around in that little bowl
I can sum up this movie with one word, "YAWN." Hardly interesting at any level, Goldfish Memory is a long, tedious look at the loves and loses of a group of Dubliners. And that would be group of people you have little reason to care about. I cannot understand where all these positive write ups came from - friends of the producers no doubt.
This little production is bit better than most of the films showing on the "here!" channel. But that is not saying much. My best suggestion is to turn the film into a drinking game. Down a shot everything the director cuts to a shot of a goldfish or goldfish bowl. You will be passed out on the floor in 20 minutes. And with a film like Goldfish Memory, you could consider that a blessing.
