    Brother Nature 2016

    ★★½ Rewatched 09 Sep, 2016

    Lots of great comparisons to make to other fine movies: What About Bob? Planes, Trains and Automobiles or John Hughes catalog. Not nearly that good but clearly swinging for those fences. Not going to be your new favorite comedy but you will leave it running in the background when it airs on TBS. Solid cast, decent (albeit predictable) script and many chuckle moments between friends.

    I can't help but think this role would be better served by someone 5 years older and 2 feet taller BUT Radcliffe does a nice job of filling the role. His outbursts whenever he felt about to get caught always felt like a flash of brilliance.

    On the whole, a fairly disturbing film if you think about it in the context that these people actually exist and that our current US political climate is probably fanning their flames.

    If I were a more eloquent individual I could wax on about how powerful and important this movie is. The story of such a huge dissent told while it is happening is a bit unreal. I wish there were some uplifting message at the end about governments reigning it in but I saw none.

    Must see for anyone. Period.

    Remember when movies used to try to create entire scenes with CG and it looked awful? Like, so bad you wondered how anyone could look at it and come to a positive consensus that their money had been well spent? Insane. We are no longer in that time for sure.

    Beautiful looking movie. Other worldly, LITERALLY. I even enjoyed the 3D aspect of it - not something I really ever budge on.

    The book is better but that's no surprise.…
