Baywatch

Did I already mention the weekend movie hierarchy around here?  Typically if we’re not watching one of the Tv series we go through, next request will be “Let’s watch a shit movie!”, so it’s either romcoms or disaster films, or ANYTHING starring The Rock.  This film was a magnificent exponent …

Killers

I’m not sure how we end up watching so many rom coms involving assassins, but my inability to lose myself in an actor’s performance and instead think of their past works had me thinking about Steve Jobs being an assassin.  Katherine Heigl is great fun, but this film really didn’t …

The Gentlemen

Guy Ritchie seemingly signs on all his current cool acting mates for another convoluted extensively-casted crime caper, this time with Hugh Grant, Colin Farrell, Charlie Hunnam, Matthew McConaughey et al.

Snitch

The combination of Dwayne Johnson, the phrase “based on a true story”, and an IMDB rating of 6.4 probably best convey what this tale of a construction company owner going undercover to free his wrongfully imprisoned son is going to deliver.  Severely fails the “Yeah, but you wouldn’t, would you?” …

Vigilante one-man-weapon film that’s a one-woman-weapon film starring Jennifer Garner.  I really enjoyed this, although it was very interesting to me how much my brain kept wrestling with the concept that she’d gone from Ordinary Mom in act one of the film to “five years later” in act two being …

Mr. Right

The Acting Range of Anna Kendrick heads up this oddball piece alongside Sam Rockwell, in which Rockwell plays a hitman with what can only be described as a fairly unconventional business model, and a very non-standard romcom situation comes into being.  Total poppycock, of course – but I thought it …
