The Hit Man’s Body Guard

on 8-19-2017

This is a wacky body strewn romp of bullets, bodies and mayhem. Yes, it is mindlessly violent with another large group of bad guys getting killed by the good guys. Cars crash, motorcycles, boats and cars are used as get away vehicles of canal chases. It is fun, kinda. There are good humor lines and bit of a surprise at the end. Ryan Reynolds and Mr. Jackson seem to play will together. EXPEKT –...

Why Him

on 12-23-2016

This movie zoomed right past cute and landed in obnoxious, then stayed there. It kept fouling the language as the actors over acted and just plain had no believability….YUCK! I left long before the ending, so maybe it got better. I had to go into the lobby to clear my aura. It had so much talent to work with but settled of adolescent bathroom humor that just kept falling short of either funny or...

The Hateful Eight

on 12-29-2015

The characters are crusty. The laugh lines quick and plentiful, The script is clever. The actions are despicable and crudely funny. Death is dealt liberally and the scenery is spectacular. It seems ironic that all of those actions are taking place in such unrelenting beauty. Buckle up if you intend to invest 3 hours of your life on this one, as, it is quite grittily crude, in true Tarentino style. It is just like...

Ted 2

on 6-29-2015

I lasted 25 minutes in this one. Which is a new record for for me in these Seth McFarland movies. I recall walking out after about 15 minutes of the first one. This one again will not disappoint to disappoint you. It is not what I would call entertainment. It is more of a deliver system for profanity and potty humor set ups. Enjoy!!! EXPEKT-O-METER Before – 5, After- 4.5 > >...

Horrible Bosses 2

on 12-13-2014

Horrible Bosses 2 I really like Jennifer Aniston. She stinks in this movie. Gosh, did I say that? She is playing to who she is not. This is never a good idea for any actor. She just can’t seem to find this character, so she over plays her. That my friends seems to be the theme of this movie. It does not fly. The last 15 minutes is hilarious. I could not recommend the...

This Is Where I Leave You

on 10-01-2014

This Is Where I Leave You This is a drama masquerading as a comedy. There are some funny lines in it. It is about family disfunction on all levels. The son who didn’t grow up, homosexuality, marital infidelity, baby lust and all the crazies that may bring. It is kind of a love story as well. It left me a bit sideways about the whole movie, theme and script. Tina Fey is a charming...

Magic In The Moonlight

on 8-05-2014

  Magic In The Moonlight This is a Woody Alan directed story of two people finding each other. Well, so it seems, at least. The curmudgeonly professional magician played by Collin Firth is determined to debunk the fakery of a prognosticator in the South of France. He becomes impressed and then enchanted by the Emma Stone character. There are a lot of laughs and a peak at how the other half lives. I liked...

Planes: Fire and Rescue

on 7-25-2014

Planes: Fire and Rescue Darn, I wanted this to be great like the first Planes or Cars. It seemed to take itself a bit too seriously. Whereas the others were FUN! It is a trap to compare, I know, I know. I just wanted more snap, although it does have some good one liners. This has good life lessons of perseverance, loyalty and you can do more than you think you can but it...

Sex Tape

on 7-25-2014

Sex Tape This light porn romantic comedy kind of fell flat, for me. The acting was stiff and working too hard at being funny rather than actually being comedic. Sure, there were some laughs but the mood was too held back to fully bloom into a great movie going experience. It is such a ripe topic to work with. The couple makes a sex tape that gets accidentally turned loose on the internet. Cameron...

A Million Ways To Die In The West

on 6-28-2014

A Million Ways To Die In The West I had been anticipating this movie since I first saw the previews for it. Now, after seeing it I am greatly disappointed. It is crude. I would call it sophomorish but that would be an insult to sophomores. Seth McFarland wrote it, directed it, starred in it and produced it. So I guess the Seth McFarland humor is gutter trained and determined to want the world...

The Grand Seduction

on 6-17-2014

This movie was fun from beginning to end. There was laugh after laugh as a small, economically depressed town in Newfoundland tries to attract a new doctor. They need a full time doctor to qualify for a petroleum company recycle facility. They need jobs and hunch the new plant will bring back prosperity to their cozy little village in a bay. All conniving tricks are on the table. They do all they can think...

Blended

on 6-05-2014

“A coming of age romance movie for both young and old.”   There is plenty of schmaltzy story telling and a whole lotta heart in this movie. I was pleasantly surprised by this one. I am an on again, off again Adam Sandler fan. This time his teaming up with Drew Barrymore in this romantic comedy about two single parents getting together is a fun romp to be a part of. The acting feels...
