Hail, Caesar! is an interesting movie. I love the Coen Brothers and while I don't know if it's among the best, it's still very entertaining. I'm not too familar with old Hollywood but it's fascinating how all these different genres are presented and I would watch them as their own movies. There's a lot of love in how they honor some of these movies but it's also self aware about how cynical that world is. But overall, it has a nice story to it and George Clooney is hilarious in it. I feel like with a lot of these guys' movies, I'll appreciate it more the more I see it because it does feel a bit dense at times but I was still having a good time with it.

Three Fugitives



1989-three-fugitives-poster1

Directed by: Francis Veber
Written by: Francis Veber
Cast: Nick Nolte, Martin Short, Sarah Rowland Doroff, James Earl Jones
Studio: Buena Vista
Genre: Action, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot: A reformed bank robber is taken as a hostage by another bank robber as they go on the lam with the recent bank robber's daughter.

Review:

Three Fugitives stars Nick Nolte as Lucas, a reformed bank robber who gets caught on the wrong side of the law when he becomes Martin Short’s hostage as Short’s character Ned Perry attempts to rob a bank. You see that’s already funny because Nick Nolte’s so tall and Martin Short’s so short. A lot of the jokes at the beginning of this are just based on that and I would be happy with that if you just want to make a dumb comedy that can mine some some solid material from that. A more silly and broader comedy was on the horizon from my memories of watching this on cable since this was like a lot of the stuff I grew up on. If not for cable, I wouldn’t have the soft spot for these silly 80’s comedies that I have now. Even hearing David McHugh’s awesome jazzy/synthesizer (or jazynthesizer?) score was enough of a successful memberberry to make this a masterpiece as the opening credits rolled. But then the rest of the movie happened and while it’s not a total slog to sit through, it hasn’t exactly aged the best...[more]...

I like your reviews of lesser known comedies.

Reminds me when I saw these on TBS.

I've been watching Don't Trust the B-- in Apartment 23 on Netflix. Never saw this when it aired but it's good. It's really short so I'll probably be done in no time around when school starts. This is growing on me although the broadness is something that I'm getting accustomed to as it goes along. There's at least some laughs every episode and the jokes can be pretty out there but considering that a former American Dad writer created this, that's not a surprise. June and Chloe are fun characters and their relationship is weird but it's a good kind of weird. The James Van Der Beek works well enough although I never watched Dawson's Creek. But like Harry Hamlin, I like seeing him pop up in random stuff even if I never watched the thing they're most famous for. I like to laugh so this is good for that.

Also watched Other People with Jesse Plemons and Molly Shannon. I was really enjoying this one although it's not as funny as I thought it was but the drama was handled very well. It has some funny moments though like when the one kid does the dance routine for his dad's 60th birthday. Molly Shannon's pretty good in this and much like with Mike White's Year of the Dog, I wish she was a bigger deal as an actress. Jesse Plemons is pretty good as the son and the stuff that occurs with him is interesting enough. Like with Sleepwalk with Me, the comedy stuff is interesting to me especially since a lot of people from sitcoms I watch keep popping up in almost every scene and I can relate to some of it because my mom and I are so close that I could sympathize with what the family was going through. If my mom had to go through that, I would jump up in the air, find God, and give him or her a pedigree because cancer sucks balls. That's how much I love her. Other than that, it's not as heavy as...

it could've been as the laidback tone make it consistently entertaining and engrossing.

Just because I felt like watching something light, I watched Sleepwalk with Me, the Mike Birbiglia movie from a few years ago. I think he's grown on me when it comes to his stand up and he seemed to be pretty likable in general and it works a lot for this especially since he's always making bad decisions. On some level, there's something relatable and aspirational about how he starts to take chances in life and move forward in his career so that he can be at a more satisfying point in his life because that's something I'm trying to do in my own life so I can see but at a certain point, it gets really crazy when it comes to his sleepwalking and his stress. I don't know if it was the funniest movie ever as it was drier than I'm used to in my comedies but there's some laughs to still be had. And I feel the comedy nerd in me is very biased with all the stand up stuff that occurs in this movie.

I absolutely love "Sleepwalk with Me", and really Birbiglia in general.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story



Rogue-one-teaser-poster

Directed by: Gareth Edwards
Written by: Chris Weitz
Cast: Felicity Jones, Ben Mendelsohn, Diego Luna, Riz Ahmed, Sam Clafin, Mads Mikkelson, Alan Tudyk, Donnie Yen
Studio: Walt Disney
Genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy, Science-Fiction
Official Site:
Plot: A group of rebels attempt to steal the plans of the Death Star.

Review:

I can’t say that I’m the biggest Star Wars fan but I do still enjoy seeing them because I’m a human being. I loved the last one so I had my expectations high but still in check. It was nice to know coming out of the theater that Star Wars: Rogue One is a thoroughly entertaining time thanks to a more darker tone throughout. While the darker tone wasn’t a necessity since they were already pretty dark, it was still a welcome direction for the franchise. While it does have a darker tone, it doesn’t go so dark to get to the point of becoming misery porn so that’s good. But the good thing is that I forgot that Disney made this until the end credits told me so it’s at least trying to be different in some ways. Look, if you’re a fan of the series, just know a lot of what you like is still here. There’s a gang of people that have to come to come together to fight a common enemy in the form of an evil dictatorship, all the scenes of people going through desert cities, gleep-glop aliens, the thrilling bombastic score, the will they, won’t they tension between the two characters who happens to be fighting the Empire, and the literal Star warsing that we’ve all come to the love. Here, we’re introduced to a young girl named Jyn Erso, who joins the Rebellion in order to stop the Empire from completing the...[more]...

Because it's about to expire on Netflix, I finally watched this Danish movie called The Hunt because I heard some good things about it. It's an interesting yet frustrating movie to sit through mainly because of the subject matter and the events that occur to the main character mainly because of said subject matter. I really really loved it though and I can't believe that I sat on it for so long. Mads Mikkelsen was really heartbreaking to watch here and it's a weird feeling to have considering a lot of the other roles I've seen him do but he really pulled it off well. He's always great but this was still really impressive to see what he could do here. It's rather slow but I was never bored by it as I was so into how everything built up and how it came crashing down. So glad I finally checked this out and I think I appreciate Mads Mikkelsen more as an actor after this.

Fantastic movie. I completely agree with you and he sure did a great job with this movie. It can't have been easy and heartbreaking indeed.

Also saw Sing last night. I'm not that big into these animated movies but the boy cousin really likes them. Very few of those wow me. I think Zootopia is still the one to beat for me as far as animated movies from 2016 go but this is okay enough if you want to see animals singing songs. It's very harmless entertainment. Very few of the cover songs are actually really great and the plot is Cliche City but I didn't mind sitting through it. It was funny at times and Matthew McConaughey is fun as a koala.

First movie of the year was Sing Street. As a whole, you've seen all this before but there's still something to enjoy about it because it has a lot of charm to it and I like the kind of music the kids try to play in it. The high school stuff still worked well enough and I learned that 1980's Dublin isn't a place I ever want to go to school if I'm using this movie as an example. That 80's New Wave stuff is something I can get into because it's music I love listening to and the songs are pretty catchy. It's from the guy who made Once and I remember really liking Once. It made me feel good like that movie did and made me want to start my own New Wave band. This was a good time once I just let myself succumb to it and just let myself enjoy it.
