Watching this in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic was certainly interesting. It's day 13 of isolation for me and there's a line in the movie where a character asks the group if they understand "how long 5 days (quarantined in a single house) will really feel." Made me laugh.Anyway, I really enjoyed the movie. It's got a strong cast […]
Tim Heidecker's uniquely deadpan and flustered approach to alternative comedy is on full display in Mister America. Playing off of long-standing plot lines in the brilliant On Cinema at the Cinema web series, the mockumentary takes aim at the topic of troubled political campaigns. The satire is wonderful (if a little too on the nose in some parts) and H […]
According to my records, it's been 10 years since I've seen Minority Report. It holds up well. Spielberg tackling Philip K Dick's universe is a pretty unique mixture. Though Spielberg's eye for more fun adventure-style action kind of gets in the way somewhat. The fist fight between Anderton and Witwer in the automobile factory and the jet […]
Dig the concept. But the execution is pretty haphazard. Atrocuously awkward visual effects, zero chemistry between Biel and Cage, and the plot is nonsensical at times. The nuclear threat feels very much shoehorned into the story in a "let's make it like 24" way. (Funny too, since Thomas Kretschmann played a villain in 24 season 2 - the one wit […]
Sure, I had a really hard time buying into Matt Damon as a "bad boy congressman", but there's something to the general aesthetic and dialogue that feels so appropriate for Philip K. Dick. I applaud the movie for that alone because PKD's writing style has such a surreal and lived-in feel to it that translating it to film is really difficul […]
I remember seeing this when it first came out and being really disappointed by it. Revisiting it now, I thought "it can't be that bad, right?" Then I saw that the Farrelly Brothers directed it and that confirmed for me that, yes, it can be that bad. And worse.It's repetitive, dumb, and much more juvenile than it needs to be. There's […]
