Gangster Squad (2013)
Well worth watching
With the cost of a cinema ticket increasing recently, I don't watch as many movies as I would like to. In fact, I rarely watch movies because as a student, it's difficult to afford them.
I saw the trailer for Gangster Squad and was intrigued. I'm going to keep this 'review' extremely short. It's not as much of a review, as a recommendation.
The movie is about a gangster from the 40's and 50's called Mickey Cohen. I think the film is loosely based on facts. Sean Penn takes the role of Mickey and absolutely nails it.
The movie had a Scarface feel to it and was simply fantastic. With beautifully choreographed scenes and incredible gun-fights, it was a real throwback to the gangsters of that era.
I strongly, strongly suggest you go and watch this movie. Don't expect it to be the best movie ever, just enjoy it and you should come away feeling satisfied, like it was money well spent.
Thank you for reading, Enjoy the movie! I hope you like it as much as I did.
Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008)
What were they thinking?
I found myself alone, lonely, depressed. My girlfriend left me and I needed a movie to cheer me up. I searched the internet for a comedy film and I found that 'Forgetting Sarah Marshall' was rated highly. I purchased the DVD and it arrived within 48 hours. Boy, was I happy to receive a comedy movie. I couldn't wait for the movie to begin making me smile. It didn't.
The movie starts out showing the main character naked. Completely, naked. You see his genitalia which I can assure you - was not a nice sight. There's a reason most movies don't include scenes like that - because it's not appealing, not necessary and most certainly not funny.
The movie's plot was basically: guy loves girl, girl cheats, guy finds another girl, messes up. The end. The movie is 1 hr 15 mins long - and even that felt like too much.
Russell Brand, whilst he tried, came across as a bland, boring character and Jonah Hill (who played the waiter) couldn't even out this mess of a movie.
With an unnecessary shock-scene in the beginning, atrocious storyline, poor dialogue and lack of pace, this movie gets a 1/10 from me. If it wasn't for Russell and Jonah, this movie would be a 0/10 (if I could rate it so low).
Bottom line: Don't rent it, don't watch it. It's trash. If you ignore my message, then all I can say is: I told you so.
Thanks for reading. Now I'm going to try find another comedy to cheer me up, because this movie didn't.
