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

The Interview



Interview_poster_franco

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

Review:

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



Jack_ryan_shadow_recruit_ver2_xlg

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.

Review:

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



Top_five_poster

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
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.

Review:

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]...

Tammy



Tammy_ver5

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.

Review:

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



2008-all_the_boys_love_mandy_lane-1

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."

Review:

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



Under_the_skin_us_poster

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.

Review:

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



2-guns-denzel-wahlberg

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.

Review:

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



Wolf_of_wall_street_ver4

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.

Review:

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



Thisistheend-character2

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

Plot: James Franco's house becomes a fortress against the elements in what could be the End of Days.

Review:

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]...

Gangster Squad



Gangster-squad-ban

Directed by: Ruben Fleischer
Written by: Will Beall
Cast: Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Emma Stone, Nick Nolte, Anthony Mackie, Michael Pena, Robert Patrick, Giovanni Ribisi, Frank Grillo
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Drama
Official Site: www.gangstersquadmovie.com
Plot: Inspired loosely on the LAPD outfit that brought down Mickey Cohen.

Review:

When it was first announced, with the cast (in particular Sean Penn, who I pegged as being just right for playing the role of Mickey Cohen) I was excited. I've got a soft spot for gangster movies, and gangster history, and Meyer Harris "Mickey" Cohen has only really featured in a supporting capacity in movies like "Bugsy" and "L.A. Confidential." That this movie was allegedly based on articles written about that time in the L.A. Times sounded promising. And while it may have sounded like "The Untouchables" on paper, surely, because this was true (and because the real Untouchables barely got in a scrape with Capone), it might actually be the kind of film I was waiting for...[more]...

Man of Steel



Manofsteelsymbolposter800

Directed by: Zack Snyder
Written by: David Goyer
Cast: Julia Ormond, Michael Shannon, Diane Lane, Kevin Costner, Amy Adams, Russell Crowe, Henry Cavill, Laurence Fishburne, Harry Lennix, Christopher Meloni
Studio: Warner Bros
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comic Book, Science-Fiction
Official Site: www.manofsteel.com
Plot: Superman origin story.

Review:

Starting out of the gate, I really liked this movie. I'd stop short of actually "loving" this movie, but I did really like it. There's a lot of good stuff here, and I was a little surprised how fun it was, since in this day and age you cannot always count on your super-heroes to be fun. At the same time, if this thing WASN'T fun that would be a violation of the cardinal rule of a Superman movie. So, good job Mr. Snyder on keeping my mind occupied with the spectacle here...[more]...
