The Overnight



Overnight_poster

Directed by: Patrick Brice
Written by: Patrick Brice
Cast: Adam Scott, Taylor Schilling, Jason Schwartzman
Studio: The Orchard
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: After moving to Los Angeles, a married couple with a young son meet another couple with a young son and have a wild night together. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/05/10/iffboston-2015-review-the-overnight/

Review:

It seems sort of strange that sex is still a taboo as if it isn’t something we all experience. In cinema, it seems like the less serious a movie takes sex, like Animal House or American Pie, it seems to go over a hell of a lot better than those films that try to examine it. Shortbus and Shame don’t exactly have mass appeal despite being pretty damn interesting. It seems like movie-goers are more comfortable giggling like middle schoolers having just seen their first sex ed video than actually have their sexual hang-ups challenged in anyway. Director Patrick Brice tries to fix that by taking it seriously and not seriously at the same time...[more]...

Mad Max: Fury Road



Mad-max-fury

Directed by: George Miller
Written by: George Miller
Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Zoe Kravitz, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, Courtney Eaton
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Action, Adventure
Official Site:
Plot: Max teams up with a group of women to flee a vindictive tyrant

Review:

Tom Hardy replaces Mel Gibson in this crazy, satisfying feature length action sequence . Teaming up with Charlize Theron's badass Furiousa, Nicholas Hoult's scene stealing warboy, and a group of underused by charming when they need to be female slaves. George Miller outdoes himself with every explosion and car impact and creates the most memorable villain of any Mad Max villain, thanks to original Mad Max baddie, Hugh Keays-Byrne. The only thing I have bad to say about it is Hardy isn't Mel Gibson. 99 times out of 100 I couldn't see Hardy being a lesser actor than Gibson, but there was something effortless about his Max. Max was mad, sure, but he was sly. Hardy was more like a Terminator, almost featureless in tone. Hardy played Max like a wolf, but Gibson was a fox.

Hot Tub Time Machine 2



Httm2-poster

Directed by: Steve Pink
Written by:
Cast: Clark Duke, Rob Corddry, Adam Scott, Gillian Jacobs, Craig Robinson, Kumail Nanjiani
Studio: MGM
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: The boys jump back in the hot tub and travel to the future.

Review:

I was surprised how much I liked this movie. I wasn't crazy about the first one either, but I think Rob Cordry, Clark Duke, and Craig Robinson are incredibly funny and have great chemistry. The previews and the interviews are always so great, but once they are saddled with a story it all seems to disappear. It is still not great, but it at least deals with some repercussions of Lou changing the world at the end of the first one. And it is done so in a surprisingly compelling way. If nothing else, the ending montage of them in the hot tub going to multiple timelines could have worked as a funny short film by itself.

Furious 7



Furious-7-poster-3

Directed by: James Wan
Written by:
Cast: Vin Diesel, Paul Walker, Tyrese Gibson, Michelle Rodriguez, Jordana Brewster, Jason Statham, Djimon Hounsou, Tony Jaa, Kurt Russell, Ronda Rousey, Elsa Pataky, Lucas Black, Chris 'Ludacris' Bridges
Studio: Universal Pictures
Genre:
Official Site:
Plot: Dom and his crew are targetted by their previous antagonist's vengeful brother

Review:

Jason Statham is utterly badass in this villainous Terminator esque role, but Paul Walker's untimely death is a burden on the movie itself and the other actors. Vin Diesel especially seems to have lost what made Dom great in the first place. His talkative and charming street kid has been replaced with a quiet, stoic bore. And even the scenes he was able to finish, Walker just seems to have turned off his personality. The action is still top notch, especially the finale opera of explosions and car dodges. But the former energy that has kept the series going is completely sapped from the interconnecting scenes. No amount of mugging by Tyrese can make up for it. And for that matter, why the hell did they get rid of Leo and Santos. They were always pretty funny.

Project Almanac



Project-almanac-poster-gallery

Directed by: Dean Israelite
Written by: Andrew Stark
Cast: Amy Landecker, Jonny Weston, Sam Lerner
Studio: Paramount
Genre: Science-Fiction, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A mechanical whiz-kid finishes his father's time travel device

Review:

Another in a long line of found footage movies that are starting to bore me. Clearly they have a big enough budget that the mechanism of a home camera isn't needed to hide the budgetary constraints and only serves here as a gimmick. That said the movie was far better than I thought it could be. A likable lead with occasionally likable supporting cast members deals with the time paradoxes and "wings of the butterfly" type changes. It is often funny and usually adventurous, and it would probably be a lot better if it was just simply shot like a regular movie.

Welcome To Me



Welcome-to-me-xl

Directed by:
Written by:
Cast: Kristen Wiig, Tim Robbins, James Marsden, Wes Bentley, Joan Cusack
Studio: Alchemy
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Independent
Official Site:
Plot: A social outcast uses lottery winnings to fund a Oprah like talk show.

Review:

A strange darkly comedic and dramatically compelling turn by SNL alum, Kristin Wiig. Her socially awkward Oprah fanatic uses her lottery winnings to fund a talk show for a struggling TV channel. The movie is never better when it is showing the actual show that Wiig has created, a weird Lynchian version of Oprah that looks more like performance art (but isn't since we see Wiig's behind the scenes thought process) that develops Wiig's character more magnetically and comedically than the waste of scenes between those of the show do.

Chappie



Chappie_poster_robot

Directed by: Neill Blomkamp
Written by: Terri Tatchell
Cast: Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, Hugh Jackman
Studio: Sony Pictures
Genre: Action, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A police droid is given artificial intelligence and raised by bankrobbers.

Review:

Chappie is the third in a line of movies by South African Neill Blomkamp that highlights sci-fi ideas in the shanty desert towns of South Africa (technically Elysium doesn't but it might as well). Blomkamp surprised with District 9 and has consistently gotten the most out of what I imagine are shoestring budget effects. His usual co-star, Sharlto Copley, mo-caps and voices the robot Chappie with undeniable charm. Unfortunately Blomkamp surrounds him with some fairly unlikable supporting players, especially the overbearing rap duo known as Die Antwoord. Blomkamp unfortunately reprises more of Elysium than District 9, that is he only barely scratches the surface of cool sci-fi ideas and philosophizing and backs it up with a pretty but mostly unsatisfying action movie.

Me and Earl and the Dying Girl



Me_and_earl_and_the_dying_girl

Directed by: Alfonso Gomez-Rejon
Written by: Jesse Andrews
Cast: Jesse Andrews, Thomas Mann, Olivia Cooke, Nick Offerman, Jon Bernthal, Connie Britton, Molly Shannon
Studio: Open Road
Genre: Drama
Official Site:
Plot: An awkward high schooler and a gravely sick girl strike up a surprising friendship. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/06/12/iffboston-2015-review-me-and-earl-and-the-dying-girl/

Review:

Quirky coming of age comedies are a dime a dozen. It probably has something to do with the old adage, “write what you know,” and most young filmmakers know what it’s like to be the young quirky hero of their own story. Just like romantic comedies and slasher movies, these movies are the kind of easy paint-by-number stories that anyone can do and can be made to look good to just about any audience. The thing about Me and Earl and the Dying Girl is it rises about the phoned in siblings by doing what last year’s rom-com Obvious Child did: remember to be good...[more]...

Beyond the Reach



Beyond_the_reach_xlg

Directed by: Jean-Baptiste Lonetti
Written by: Stephen Susco
Cast: Michael Douglas, Jeremy Irvine, Ronny Cox
Studio: Roadside Attractions
Genre: Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: After a hunting accident, a hunting tourist decides to get rid of his local tracker

Review:

Michael Douglas is as good as he's ever been, but they don't exactly give him much to do. Whatever it is, he makes the best of it. The thriller is a bit simplistic with plenty of cheap ploys. It is really nice looking, but that makes it feel too staged and fake. Unfortunately, the movie doesn't know how to end. And screws it up a few times.

Kill Me Three Times



Kill_me_three_times

Directed by:
Written by:
Cast: Simon Pegg, Alice Braga, Sullivan Stapleton, Bryan Brown
Studio:
Genre: Action, Comedy, Independent
Official Site:
Plot: A hitman stumbles on to a violent love triangle of sorts

Review:

Simon Pegg is charming as the hitman sort of just watching the proceedings going on, kicking his feet up and letting everything go to pot. The movie itself is a few decades too late. This looks, sounds, and even smells like the late 90s crime capers that followed in the wake of Tarantino's surprise success.

The Cobbler

Directed by: Tom McCarthy
Written by: Tom McCarthy
Cast: Adam Sandler, Steve Buscemi, Clifford Smith, Melonie Diaz, Ellen Barkin
Studio:
Genre: Comedy, Drama, Fantasy
Official Site:
Plot: A New York cobbler discovers that by wearing the shoes he worked on, he can become his customers. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/04/22/movie-review-the-cobbler/

Review:

There was time when I would consider myself an Adam Sandler fan. Billy Madison and Happy Gilmore were on permanent replay, while The Wedding Singer and Big Daddy snuck in a surprising amount of heart. Looking at his recent work, I struggle with whether I was just the right age to find his immature sense of humor funny, or if Adam Sandler’s sense of humor just happened to age like old milk. Sandler still gets in an impressive performance every now and then, but it is usually only when working with a director or actors outside of his usual circle of friends. Thomas McCarthy definitely fits that bill. His unusually slow paced dramedies The Station Agent and Win Win were some of the bigger surprises to come out of cinema in years. It seems though that McCarthy has accidentally made a regular Adam Sandler movie...[more]...

The Salvation



Posternot_available

Directed by: Kristian Levring
Written by: Kristian Levring
Cast: Mads Mikkelsen, Eva Green, Jeffrey Morgan, Jonathan Pryce, Eric Cantona
Studio: Zentropa Productions
Genre: Drama, Western
Official Site:
Plot: A Danish soldier trying to set up a new life in America seeks revenge for the murders of his wife and child. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/04/20/movie-review-the-salvation/

Review:

I see genres (and all subsets of subgenres) as experimentations on themes of the human condition. Each movie does their part to add to or prove wrong what came before it. One day, each of these genres will have a “concluding paragraph,” a film that satisfies all the themes and all the experimentations and finally come up with something concrete. So far, and this is arguable, I think there is only one subgenre that has truly found that conclusion: Westerns. And the conclusion is Unforgiven. Ever since then, the Western has had a rough go of it with a lot of homage obsessed modern attempts. Thankfully, a few still live up to the experiment. Kevin Costner’s Open Range comes to mind as does the Australian Proposition. The Salvation just joined their ranks...[more]...

You propose that all genres, as they are artistic discussions, will have a conclusive statement at some point. I find that proposition extremely interesting. And, I shall have to keep my eyes open.

Oddly enough, the Watchmen comicbook might have been that conclusive statement for awhile in the superhero genre. However, the movie had only so much of an effect. However, the printed superhero tradition and the current cinematic tradition might be two different animals.

Predestination



Predestination-poster-hawke

Directed by: Michael Spierig
Written by: Michael Spierig
Cast: Ethan Hawke
Studio: Sony Pictures
Genre: Crime, Science-Fiction
Official Site:
Plot: A young woman is recruited by a time traveling secret agent. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/04/07/movie-review-predestination/

Review:

Do not be mistaken by the “man with a gun going toward something so impossible only he could stop it” movie poster. Predestination is not a run and gun kind of movie, another in a long line of modest budget thriller starring a well-known actor (going all the way back to Taken). It is a decade-spanning character piece posing as a slow burn thriller, and it is based on a classic Robert Heinlein short story “-All You Zombies-.” It stars Ethan Hawke as an unnamed temporal agent working for a secret agency who has been circling back and forth through time trying to stop a terrorist. Hawke’s ping-ponging between lead actor and character actor suits him well here turning the same character for all intents and purposes into completely separate characters, varied by time. He reteams with his Daybreakers directors Michael and Peter Spierig. Their genre pedigree allows them to create a beautiful looking and well-conceived time travel continuity resembling an even more knotted version of the Mobius strip while ever so slightly exiting that genre comfort zone with keen questions of identity...[more]...

Genre: Comedy, Crime, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A seemingly mild-mannered factory worker receives evil messages from his talking pets. http://houseofgeekery.com/2015/04/04/movie-review-the-voices/

Review:

If there was anyone I thought was in dire need of their own “McConnaissance,” it was Ryan Reynolds. I’m sure many would line up to disagree with me, but between Buried, The Nines, Chaos Theory, Fireflies in the Garden, and a few other lesser seen work there is plenty of potential. I thought Reynolds would be in the middle of one right now. He had set up quite a few projects with auteur filmmakers. Unfortunately, Atom Egoyan’s The Captive failed to compel, and I am afraid The Voices will do the same...[more]...

No one could question Joe Lynch’s dedication to the B-movie concept. He paints with blood, bullets, and babes. He hits all the line items from a checklist bound to make the most casual viewers stand up and go “AWESOME!” Look no further than his LARP-ers turned bona fide demon hunters flick, Knights of Badassdom. Like Knights…, Lynch creates something that only seems like half a movie though...[more]...

Cast: Julianne Moore, John Cusack, Robert Pattinson, Mia Wasikowska, Sarah Gadon
Studio:
Genre: Horror, Independent
Official Site:
Plot: A girl with a secret throws a number of Hollywood players into chaos

Review:

So, the long lost hidden family secret.The aging starlet in her mother's shadow. A rising star already too egotistical to deal with. A new age guru who is mostly a hyporcrite. The limo driver who really wants to write and act. David Cronenberg parades a number of Hollywood satircal archetypes through a barrage of anti-Hollywood cliches. It is only his competence of tone and visuals that makes any of this worth watching. It is otherwise void of new ideas.

Wild Card



Wild-card-poster-debut

Directed by: Simon West
Written by: William Goldman
Cast: Jason Statham, Sofia Vergara, Milo Ventimiglia, Anne Heche, Max Casella, Hope Davis, Stanley Tucci
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Action, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A security expert looks for his way out of Vegas

Review:

WIld Card is not what you think it is going to be. Yes, it is a Jason Statham cheapie action thriller with some very arobatic action scenes, but there is more to it. A very vague attempt to be something more.Something better.I can appreciate that. I really can. There is a lot of time between fight scenes that usually have Statham acting self-depricating about his own toughness, playing cards trying to make enough bank to make a break for it, taking a young millionaire who wants to toughen up under his wing. It is definitely one of Statham's better performances, requiring him to actually do some acting. The guy has the kind of screen presence where he can play a more emotionally complicated kind of tough guy than we are used to seeing in these kind of movies.

The Wolf of Wall Street



Wolf-of-wall-street-poster1

Directed by: Martin Scorsese
Written by: Terence Winter
Cast: Leonardo DiCaprio, Jonah Hill, Kyle Chandler, Jean Dujardin, Jon Favreau, Matthew McConaughey, Margot Robbie
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Official Site:
Plot: Rise and fall of a wall street money man.

Review:

So many of Scorsese movies are about the rise and fall. Enter a confident go-getter who knows how to work the system.He climbs the ladder quick and starts cutting corners when he thinks he can get away with it until they hemorrage money and power at quicksand speed. DiCaprio plays his most over the top character yet, as does pretty much everyone involved in the movie, to a fault. It also helps make it all the more funny, the extra push After Hours was missing.
