The Hangover Part III
RT on DVD & Blu-Ray
Inside Llewyn Davis
Good acting would not have served the material well, since it would have diluted the comedy quotient and made the campy elements seem cheap and cheesy.
| Original Score: 3/4
A flashy good-natured display of special effects and scare tactics so extreme they can only be taken for laughs.
The pop-up humor and smirkiness suggest Raimi's aspiring to the fashionable company of the brothers Coen, though on the basis of this strained effort I'd say he's overshot the mark.
Delirious, demented and diabolically funny.
Genuine, if bizarre, proof of Sam Raimi's talent and developing skill.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
If you know it's all special effects, and if you've seen a lot of other movies and have a sense of humor, you might have a great time at Evil Dead 2.
The acting is straight out of '50s B movies. The exposition is clumsy, the sound track corny, the denouement silly. Then again, who said bad taste was easy?
