JULIE & JULIA (2009) Weekly Pick + Review


Julie & Julia (2009) PosterJulie & Julia (2009)

It's Nora Ephron! It's Amy Adams! It's Meryl Streep!

Very good master of the obvious, action junkie 35 year-old kiddie - you have described the movie's "chick lineage" accurately and succinctly. Now go back to your buffo wings and let the adults talk.

FUNNY PEOPLE (2009) Weekly Pick + Review


Funny People (2009) posterFunny People (2009)

Ya know, what I really want to do is direct...you...to Adam, but it's only in 4 theaters to start due to some intern at Fox Searchlight who thought there were only 300 people in the US. M stands for million, not monkeys...well, maybe it could stand for monkeys in this case, but all in all, love the decimal buddy...be...the decimal.

SHRINK (2009) Weekly Pick + Review


SHRINK (2009) posterShrink (2009)

What happens when a screenwriter is left alone in Santa Monica, without a car, a cell phone or cash? Shrink happens. Shrink your expectations and sit a spell. That same screenwriter, Thomas Moffett, that wrote Frost (2008) with Steve Clark (writer and director). Now, you have to know, Frost was pretty good. Just how much Moffett wrote vs. Clark is unknown, but I don't think Clark directed it out of the park. It's kind of a Metropolitan meets Eyes Wide Shut depressive New York love triangle talking head indie superficial heart squeezer. It also starred the late and lovely Lucy Gordon (Paris, July 20th, 2009, suicide).

BRUNO (2009) Weekly Pick + Review


BRUNO (2009) PosterBrüno (2009)

Moröns unite! Borat style sensational low-brow...very-low-brow..."comedy" is back. It ain't easy being funny, writing funny or creating comedy, but there is an easy way out and the Borat/Bruno way is it. Gather up the most outrageous crap you can think, try to offend everyone (tried and true tenets of this type comedy), exploit the gullible and cater to the lowest not-even-common denominator and film it. This is the 2000s explicit extended cut version of the 80s juvenile hi-jink comedies.
