Well, I found out that someone else actually reads this blog (hi Steve!). So that brings the count up to a whopping 4 people! Now I feel somewhat obliged to post something. And since I seemed to have skipped the April addition of movies, here they are. A common theme throughout these movies was that most of these movies were sloooow. Action movie? Slow. Oooh a thriller. Slow. It was like an April Golden Shower of films. And I don’t mean in that golden Oscar sort of way.
Rubbish. I’m all for action packed implausible movies, but this was ridiculous. Christ, they could have taken any one of a thousand crazy taxis and made it to their destination in minutes — and would it have saved me 2 hours.
You, Me and Dupree:
Meh. It was cute. The periodic eye candy kept me interested (and I don’t mean Owen Wilson’s ass).
The Great New Wonderful:
A boring disparate set of stories that never came together. Weak character development. They really shot themselves in the foot naming this piece of shit.
This was actually pretty slow with a lot of boring parts. I can’t imagine how a child or someone with a short attention span could sit through this. The story was cute and the animation was, of course, fantastic. And of course, Jeremy Piven played an agent.
It took a good hour to figure out who exactly was the protagonist in this movie. Oh Kiefer, why oh why did you do this movie?
Lucky Number Slevin:
Ok, good ending. Bad everything else. This quite possibly the most boring and slow "thrillers" I have ever seen.
Keeping Up with the Steins:
Cute movie, but I found it a little mesuggina. I guess Jeremy Piven is officially type-cast as the agent.
Very interesting account of the events of Flight 93. Honestly not quite sure what else to say.
A Prarie Home Companion:
Holy cow, what a piece of crap. I hate the radio show. Putting a face to the sounds did not make it any better for me.
An Inconvenient Truth:
I bought a Prius 3 days ago. Nuff Said. Any questions?
Failure to Launch:
Pathetic. Predictable. Flaccid.
Slooooowwwwww. I guess that’s why it got an Oscar.
One of better Woody Allen movies. Not nearly as shitty as Match Point (oh that sucked). Still a boring piece of shit though. Perhaps a scoop of shit, if you will.
