Wag the Dog

Studio: New Line Cinema
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: The president's personal fixer and a Hollywood producer join forces to make a fake war when the president is caught in hot water.


Last night I rewatchd one of my favorite political satires, and I wondered, in the age of Edward Snowden, Twitter, and more alternative news than anyone can hope to read, would it still hold up. Pleasantly, "Wag the Dog" is a movie that just gets better with age...[more]...

The Hateful Eight


Directed by: Quentin Tarantino
Written by: Quentin Tarantino
Cast: Jennifer Jason Leigh, Kurt Russell, Samuel L. Jackson, Bruce Dern, Demian Bichir, Walton Goggins, Michael Madsen, Tim Roth, Channing Tatum, Zoe Bell, Gene Jones
Studio: The Weinstein Company
Genre: Action, Crime, Independent, Western
Official Site:
Plot: A pair of bounty hunters and a prisoner take shelter with an assortment of questionable individuals in a haberdashery in post-Civil War Wyoming.


I'll be honest. As a Tarantino die-hard there was a moment in The Hateful Eight where I very nearly wondered aloud "Is that it?" It wasn't. One thing Quentin Tarantino knows how to do is subvert expectations and turn the movie you think you're watching on its ear. More often than not that means making an even better film than what I was expecting...[more]...

Black Mass


Directed by: Scott Cooper
Written by: Russell Gewirtz
Cast: Johnny Depp, Joel Edgerton, Benedict Cumberbatch, Adam Scott, Kevin Bacon, Sienna Miller, Corey Stoll, Juno Temple, Jesse Plemons
Studio: Universal Pictures
Official Site:
Plot: The true story of James "Whitey" Bulger, the informant for the FBI who became the kingpin of South Boston.


I have never seen Johnny Depp like this before. With the exception of maybe "Sweeney Todd" he's usually got a bit of mischief about him. And though James "Whitey" Bulger did game the system, the way he's portrayed, it was all business. And never is Depp anything less than convincing in the part...[more]...

Gary Poulter deserved the Golden Schmoe for Best Supporting Actor. However, only so many people have seen Joe.

The Interview


Directed by: Seth Rogen
Written by: Seth Rogen
Cast: Seth Rogen, James Franco, Lizzy Caplan, Randall Park, Anders Holm
Studio: Columbia Pictures
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: A TV show host and his producer are recruited by the CIA to assassinate a dictator.


Outside of Trey Parker and Matt Stone, I can't think of an example where a comedy that heavily features a real-life enemy of Americans was released DURING that same person's actual reign. Even "Doctor Strangelove" didn't use the real name of the Russian Premier. When they went to make this movie Kim Jong-un probably seemed like a safe bet. And from a narrative point of view, he probably is. I couldn't imagine this movie with Bashar Assad as the target, or Robert Mugabe. It had to be Kim Jong-un, for comedy's sake. I'm not going to comment on the controversy this stirred up, except to say I think Charlie Hebdo got it beat for free speech arguments. Now, let's look at the movie for what it is...[more]...

Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit


Directed by: Kenneth Branagh
Written by: Anthony Peckham
Cast: Chris Pine, Kenneth Branagh, Keira Knightley
Studio: Paramount
Genre: Action, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: The origin of CIA analyst Jack Ryan.


Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit is not a great movie. That's not to say it's a bad movie. In fact, up until the final act I was pretty well entertained. Chris Pine would've been the perfect guy to reintroduce audiences to the unlikely hero of Tom Clancy's novels. He's a PhD student who, in this movie, joins the Marines after 9/11, gets shot out of the sky before seeing combat, but still manages to save two of his fellow men in green. He meets Kathy Muller (Keira Knightley), a resident at Walter Reed who helps him through physical therapy, and later becomes his girlfriend. He also meets a no-nonsense CIA agent (Kevin Costner) who recruits Ryan to monitor the international stock exchange on Wall Street, under the cover of working for a Wall Street firm run by a paranoid middle-manager (a rather hilarious Colm Feore...[more]...

Top Five


Directed by: Chris Rock
Written by: Chris Rock
Cast: Chris Rock, Rosario Dawson, Gabrielle Union, Kevin Hart, J.B. Smoove, Jerry Seinfeld, Adam Sandler, Whoopi Goldberg, Anders Holm
Studio: Paramount Pictures
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: A comedian-turned-actor finds himself re-evaluating his career and life choices after making a passion project that doesn't measure up commercially, and his impending nuptials to a vapid reality star.


Top Five is the Chris Rock movie his stand-up fans have been waiting for. A movie equal parts comedy and biting social statement. In this case, the perspective of a once hugely successful stand-up comedian and actor who is struggling to remain relevant. Sound familiar...[more]...

Directed by: Ben Falcone
Written by: Ben Falcone
Cast: Melissa McCarthy, Susan Sarandon, Gary Cole, Allison Janney, Mark Duplass, Toni Collette, Nat Faxon, Dan Aykroyd, Kathy Bates
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: After wrecking her car, losing her fast food job, and finding out her husband's cheating on her, Tammy runs off with her alcoholic grandmother.


There are scenes and lines throughout the movie "Tammy" where I found myself chuckling. Yes, Melissa McCarthy is playing a variant of her ignorant blowhard, kind of a female Chris Farley, but this is her most down-to-earth, realistic portrayal of such a character. For starters, Tammy works at a fast-food restaurant, and still lives in her home town (in Kentucky, I think, though filming took place in my home state of North Carolina). The opening scenes are actually pretty funny as she's fired by her boss (co-writer, director, and husband Ben Falcone), and proceeds to act exactly the way we would like to act in her shoes...[more]...

All the Boys Love Mandy Love


Directed by: Jonathan Levine
Written by: Jacob Forman
Cast: Amber Heard, Anson Mount, Whitney Able, Michael Welch
Studio: Senator Distribution
Genre: Horror
Official Site:
Plot: "There she is boys, Mandy Lane. Untouched, pure. Since the dawn of junior year men have tried to possess her, and to date all have failed. Some have even died in their reckless pursuit of this angel."


From a horror standpoint I'm not sure anything disturbed me quite as much as the opening sequence, wherein Mandy Lane (Amber Heard, in a case of perfect casting), being ogled by every boy in school, is invited to a pool party by a jock a-hole, who later kills himself trying to prove his love for her by jumping off his roof into the pool at the encouragement of her nominal boyfriend Emmet. It's one of those bits of foreshadowing that caught me off-guard because that stuff actually happens. After that the gears of the genre begin to turn...[more]...

Under the skin


Directed by: Jonathan Glazer
Written by: Walter Campbell
Cast: Scarlett Johansson, Paul Brannigan
Studio: Film4
Genre: Horror, Science-Fiction, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot: A beautiful alien roams Scotland in search of male victims.


I'm not a big fan of Jonathan Glazer. "Sexy Beast" is a pretty good movie that manages to pay homage to the likes of "The Long Good Friday" and "The Hit" in spite of Glazer's arty pretentiousness, and pacing issues that keep it from being great. "Birth" has tremendous acting, but neither the story, nor some of his jarring editing choices, did much for me. So naturally, "Under the skin" is the perfect vehicle for his talents--a slow-paced, largely improvised mood piece that pays homage to '70s art-house giants like Andrei Tarkovsky, Alejandro Jodorowsky, and Stanley Kubrick...[more]...

2 Guns


Directed by: Baltasar Kormakur
Written by: Blake Masters
Cast: Mark Wahlberg, Denzel Washington, Paula Patton, Bill Paxton, James Marsden, Fred Ward, Edward Olmos, Patrick Fischler
Studio: Universal
Genre: Action, Crime
Official Site:
Plot: Two undercover agents - DEA and Naval Intelligence - find themselves unlikely allies after a bank robbery puts them in the crosshairs of a drug cartel, the Navy, and a CIA accountant.


The buddy/action genre was king in the late '80s and early '90s, before it turned into parody, and subsequently was swallowed up by comedy, with the work of Edgar Wright, Adam McKay, and Paul Feig having a lot more in common with the buddy vibe of something like "48 Hrs." than most straight entries. So "2 Guns" gets points for just trying. But it also deserves credit for actually being entertaining...[more]...

The Wolf of Wall Street


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: The rise and fall of Wall Street broker Jordan Belfort.


Sex, drugs, and greed permeate every corner of the screen for the full three hours on this fifth collaboration between Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, and my personal favorite. "Wolf of Wall Street" feels cut from the same cloth as Scorsese's best collaborations with Robert De Niro. Like "Taxi Driver," "Raging Bull" and "King of Comedy" it deals mainly with the psychology of one man, but like "Goodfellas" and "Casino" it also tackles the epic story of a criminal enterprise. "Goodfellas" in particular shares DNA with this tale, as both Henry Hill and Jordan Belfort started out at the bottom and worked their way up. But while cocaine was the downfall of Henry Hill, for Belfort, it is only the beginning...[more]...

This is the End


Directed by: Seth Rogen
Written by: Seth Rogen
Cast: Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, Jay Baruchel, Emma Watson, Jonah Hill, James Franco, Jason Segel, Paul Rudd, Michael Cera, Martin Starr, David Krumholtz, Mindy Kaling, Rihanna, Kevin Hart, Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride, Craig Robinson
Studio: Sony
Genre: Action, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: James Franco's house becomes a fortress against the elements in what could be the End of Days.


If you are a fan of Judd Apatow movies, and the majority of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg's scripted films, then you will probably enjoy this one. While not necessary, knowing some of the references in their filmographies doesn't hurt...[more]...
