Are you a Watcher? Or a Player?
-Bunch of folks
I had little to no interest in seeing Nerve ever since seeing the first trailer. Honestly I've been making fun of it since seeing the first trailer, but lack of selection at the multiplexes led us to seeing it.
Surprisingly it had a ton of potential that I hadn't bothered to think of. There's the obvious delving into the dark side of how far people are willing to go for…
I trust you.
Found this little gem when I went exploring deeper into the NetFlix horror section and basically ignored the "Suggestions for You". It's an indie film from first time writer/director Perry Blackshear... hell he shot it himself too.
You figure out early on that the entire film is a build up to the end, keeping you guessing just how this god damn thing is going to end. We meet Wyatt (MacLeod Andrews) and soon realize that he…
If you only do what you can do, you'll never be better than what you are.
The fat panda Po voiced by Jack Black is back dealing out some more kung fu for the masses. You can clearly see the love of classic kung fu movies bursting at the seams when you watch the Kung Fu Panda movies and that's one of the major reasons I like them so much.
It's cute, it has a great style beyond just…
You change your hunting ground for a few years, and everyone forgets how the Law works.
Disney's quest to adapt their former glories to live action has gained enough momentum that I can't see where it might end, but after Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent and Cinderella I really wasn't looking forward to any more of them. Best case scenario I thought some might turn out ok, hopefully none of them will be too awful.... and hopefully most of…
Once you see that shit... it'll fuck you up for life. Good luck! Have fun!
Seth Rogen and the boys are back taking a look at the other side of the coin that they first brought up in This Is the End. If you've seen both films and don't know what I'm talking about, look at it this way: both movies basically have a character saying "Hey assholes, you've got it all wrong!" but from two completely opposing religious…
Good night, blue cheese!
Ok now I'm convinced that the socio-political commentary that really first started in The Purge: Anarchy was never writer/director James DeMonaco's idea because he doesn't seem to understand it much less be capable of pulling it off. He pulls off a dumb film that tries to present itself as something much more.
I think the commentary was never his idea because in the first film the story is about a rich/upper class white family…
You're all right man! Not like Teddy! He's a dick juicer!
A unique time travel(ish) premise with a lazy trope setup; meteor crashes on Earth, weird shit happens, which is fine. If you have a unique enough take on something, go ahead and have a meteor cause it, no one will care or remember the initial cause. Night of the Living Dead created a horror sub-genre and that film barely mentions what MIGHT have caused what's happening in that…
It would be a terrible mistake to go through life thinking that people are the sum total of what you see.
Me and Mrs. DuLac are suckers for these types of movies. When you reach a certain age (we're really not that old) you recognize yourself and/or your family in these types of films. Families only coming together during funerals and weddings is probably more common place now then it's ever been while "dysfunctional" is the norm and…
A hard drinking French-Canadian trapper by the name of Jules Vincent (Stewart Granger) wins the heart of a Native-American singer (Cyd Charisse) with his charm and the help of his newly found orange kitten. All that really happens, in a bar no less.
So the film starts off ridiculously entertaining already before even hitting it's real plot and that's Jules Vincent being on the run from a hard nosed Mountie (Wendell Corey) in the Canadian wilderness…
Sigourney Weaver is going to help us!
The once mighty PIXAR was often compared to Studio Ghibli, partly because John Lasseter would mention their influence on the studio at every chance he had, but as far as storytelling goes the comparisons were arguably well deserved as you could count on PIXAR for the strongest and most original stories coming out of a Hollywood studio... at the time. Fast forward a decade and their latest film is their 5th sequel…
