    Guardians of the Tomb

    ★★

    When a title refers to something, you expect there to be some obvious connection to what's actually in the movie. It's unclear whom or what the specific seven guardians of 7 Guardians of the Tomb are, although I think it refers to the story's collection of heroes, who number more than seven in the big picture, find their numbers increased and dwindled by the time they arrive at the tomb, and aren't exactly guarding a single thing in said tomb in the first place.

    The Party

    ★★

    Without the credits, The Party is a bit over an hour long. This is too long to be trapped with this group of so-called friends, as they argue, bicker, and fight through a dinner party from a hell of their own creation.

    Last Ounce of Courage

    ½

    This is the movie equivalent of a spoiled child having a temper tantrum, stomping around the room, and, through the whole thing, repeatedly falling down. It would be easy to be annoyed with the movie if it weren't so unaware of how damn funny its display of pointless outrage is.

  • Mortdecai

    Mortdecai

    Mortdecai is the stuff that inspires stipulations in wills, as in, "Have some basic decency on the event of my passing, and don't let people bring up that one movie." On the more positive side of things, it's also one of those movies that will likely be a, if not the, low point for everyone involved, which theoretically means that everyone here only has better things to look forward to in the future of their careers. Even so, this one is going to sting.
