KING Of All Schmoes
|Directed by:||Luke Greenfield|
|Written by:||Luke Greenfield|
|Cast:||Nina Dobrev, Jake Johnson, Andy Garcia, James D'Arcy, Rob Riggle, Damon Wayans Jr.|
|Studio:||20th Century Fox|
It certainly isn’t the best written comedy to come around, or the most original. But I admired the simplicity of it and overall got a lot of good laughs from it. I think Jake Johnson is hilarious. Superb comic timing and delivery. And I think the Wayans dude did a nice job playing off of him. They make a decent comedy duo, as I had noticed previously on the show they're both on called New Girl.
Like I said, it’s not the funniest thing I’ve ever seen, or the most marvelously written. And it's just about as predictable as they come. But considering how I’m rarely that impressed with many comedies that come out these days, I had a lot of fun with this one.
|Directed by:||Jim Jarmusch|
|Written by:||Jim Jarmusch|
|Cast:||Tilda Swinton, Tom Hiddleston, Anton Yelchin, Mia Wasikowska, John Hurt, Jeffrey Wright|
|Studio:||Sony Pictures Classics|
I hold jazzy Jim Jarmusch in the same regard as I do David Lynch, in that I don’t consider them to be movie directors. I regard them as artists who just happen to use movie as their creative outlets. Yes, I hold Jarmusch very very musch. See what I did there?
Anyway, I sincerely respect his vision and style. Every since the Twilight movies conquered movieland, and hearing Twitards claim them to be the greatest “vampire” love stories, I’ve found myself on a personal voyage to discover better films of that subgenre. And I found that in Only Lovers Left Alive
I thoroughly enjoyed spending time with the vampire couple, played wonderfully by Tom Hiddleston and a Jarmusch regular, Tilda Swinton. The story was simple, but deeply enthralling. It’s obvious that Jarmusch is speaking through Loki’s character the most, who holds a certain contempt for commercial enterprise and the “zombies” of modern society.
This is a film that resonates and will likely stick with your thoughts many days after viewing it. For those looking to take a break from the flash/bang mainstream movies that sadly reign supreme, I highly recommend you give this a try.

My biggest worry going into this was that the groovy First Class kids would be pushed aside so that sneaky Singer could get his old X-Men gang back in the spotlight again. Afraid that it would lose the spirit of First Class and that everything that made the franchise fun and fresh again would be forgotten. But ultimately I think it was a brilliant way to blend the two together and was balanced out well. The always impressive acting caliber of McAvoy and Fassbender didn't suffer any lost screen time which I'm thankful for...[more]...
Can't afford the real deal right now babe, but here's a picture of it!!!!
