  • Casa De Mi Padre 2012

    ★★★ Watched 20 Mar, 2012

    This is an interesting movie. It was funny, but subtle (at least for a WIll Ferrell movie). Most of the actors played their characters straight and allowed the absurdity of the production be the source of humor.

All I can say is if you haven't seen this movie, go get the Blu-Ray immediately and watch it, and if you haven't seen it in years, watch it again.

    This film might not garner any Oscar nods or year end best of lists, but for pure ass kicking enjoyment, it's a definite pleaser. The beautiful Gina Carano excels in the physical aspects of the movie, even though some acting classes wouldn't help. But you don't watch this movie for the acting or the character arcs, you watch it for the action. In that sense it delivers. Soderbergh shoots and edits this movie with cat-like agility and makes the wise…
