KING Of All Schmoes
|Directed by:||Kimberly Peirce|
|Written by:||Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa|
|Cast:||Chloe Moretz, Ivana Baquero, Julianne Moore, Judy Greer, Portia Doubleday, Alex Russell, Gabriella Wilde, Ansel Elgort|
|Genre:||Drama, Horror, Thriller|
Finally someone added the one thing that the Carrie story didn’t have, or need. CGI. Along with the new cast of course, the digital effects are basically the only thing holding this waste of time back from being a complete carbon copy of the ’76 original.
Besides the petty box office cash they milked out of the familiar title, there’s just no need for this movie to exist. No, it doesn’t draw more from the book to enhance the storyline. No, the modern day setting doesn’t offer any benefits. And no, the computer graphics don’t present any benefits. Make no mistake, this movie is POINTLESS!
Julianne Moore overacts her part as the mother but still manages to remain just as forgettable as the rest of the supporting cast. Save for Judy Greer of course, because Judy Greer is a fucking GODDESS and can do no wrong, not even here.
And the most redeeming factor of the film is of course Chloe Moretz. This won’t go down in history as her finest performance, and she seems a little too pretty to be taken seriously as a telekenutty outcast, but she made the role her own. All you pervs out there will be happy to know that not only is there a shower scene, but you finally get to see Hit-Girl blasted and covered in warm liquid.

|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.
