Crop And Save
Great story, but left more to be desired
Let me first say that I liked Sunshine. But towards the end, It got a little annoying, not to mention confusing. But I really was not a fan of where the second half of the film goes. Don't want to put in any spoilers, so I'll just say that... the situation changes. I liked how it was shot in the part although some of the cuts in the last half were a bit too much. Constant going and stopping was a bit much. The characters were great though. Very Danny Boyle. The sci-fi aspect was amazing, It has a very Event Horizon or Sphere feeling. It also made me feel at times very claustrophobic. Lots of movement in an enclosed space ship. anyway Still, it was a good movie and well worth watching.
Employee of the Month (2006)
wasn't horrible, but could have been a lot better.
I figured employee of the month would be either a great comedy or simply a joke. It ended up being both. The parts I laughed at, were hilariously funny. The problem was that the laughs were few and far between. Most of the laughs hover around the supporting characters and not the leads. Especially not Simpson. She is basically just thrown in, has very few lines, and mainly just takes up screen time. Cook is good, but I think he was too tamed by having to stay inside the guidelines of a pg-13 flick. If it was R, I think it would have been a lot better. Throughout, I kept thinking of ways I would have improved specific scenes. Adding slight movements to increase the effects, changing the camera angle or using different background music. Overall, employee of the month is good for what it is, but I wouldn't rush out to the theatres to see it. My suggestion, wait for DVD.
Jimmy and Judy (2006)
What the hell were the film makers thinking?
I've seen a lot of bad movies lately, but HOLY HELL!!! When I first heard about Jimmy and Judy, I was mildly interested. Two young (rolls eyes) lover go on a violence and destruction rampage. Kinda a new NBK or Bonnie and Clide. Well it was far from any of those classics. J & J is just persistent boredom. Long shots of NOTHING!! Annoying ?acting? by furlong, random nudity, horrible tattoos. OH GOD!! the TATTOOS!!! Okay, heres a game you can play while watching this movie. Each time you see a fake tattoo (looks like they went to staples, bought a 12 pack of sharpies and colored in some tribal crap. Awful.) take a drink. Aside from the tattoos and the acting, the entire thing being done in a hand cam by the characters gets old FAST. It felt constantly forced and not natural at all. SPOILER: One shot in particular that I laughed at was towards the end after Jimmy gets the crap kicked out of him by the commune people. Let me set the stage: the guy just had a beating to within an inch of his life; he comes to at night and grabs his CAMERA turns it on and carries it with him as he stumble around to get to his van and back to the house to kill people. Now, maybe I'm crazy, BUT... If I was just stomped by about a half dozen large hillbillies, when I came too I really don't think my first act would be to reach over and turn on my flippin handy-cam. Spoilers over.
Final thoughts: Skip Jimmy and Judy unless you want to laugh at a horrible story, boring and pointless directing, and Ed Furlong looking like a fool.
