A light, never too serious Canadian art-heist comedy by Jonathan Sobol is only 90 minutes long, but I enjoyed every minute of it. Leading actor Kurt Russell is a part of a great team starring Jay Baruchel, Matt Dillon, Terence Stamp, Katheryn Winnick, Chris Diamantopoulos, Kenneth Welsh, Jason Jones, and with this bunch there is never fun or style lacking. Very fast pace with almost impossible plot, makes it simply lovable!
The story of Crunch Calhoun (Kurt Russell), a third rate motorcycle daredevil and semi-reformed art thief will take you around the world. He agrees to get back into the con game and pull off one final lucrative art theft with his untrustworthy brother, Nicky (Matt Dillon). Of course, reassembling the old team, Crunch comes up with a plan to steal a priceless historical book... after the successful heist, his brother suggest another far riskier plan. They fail to realize each other's separate agendas when their plan goes opposite direction in this con movie about honour. You will always feel the possibility of the hovering revenge but you won't be allowed to forget that somewhere there are bonds of brotherhood.
If you have a spare night to watch a fun movie, choose this!
Bad reviews did not stop me from liking this romantic thriller directed and written by Paul Haggis, Starring Liam Neeson, Mila Kunis, Adrien Brody, Olivia Wilde, James Franco, Moran Atias, Kim Basinger, and Maria Bello, it offers three compelling stories which at the end melt into one.
Haggis followed his Academy Award winning formula from his film Crash, but this time he is dealing with relationships. Stories were told in Paris, New York and Rome, with each storyline following a different stage of a love relationship from the beginning, middle and the end. It wasn't successful result as Crash, but it has its own charm and artistic value.
I understand that many people will say that is dreary, but for me it had the right pace which allows the viewer to grasp some of the complexities of the emotions and their relationships. If you like solid directing, check it out!
I really enjoyed this comedy directed, written by and starring John Turturro, co-starring Woody Allen, Sharon Stone, Sofia Vergara, Vanessa Paradis, and Liev Schreiber. I really have no explanation why it failed at the box office and received mixed reviews from critics. I really thought at some stage that this was Woody Allen's movie, because the story was just crazy enough to hve his stamp! Dr. Parker (Sharon Stone), a wealthy dermatologist, mentions to her patient Murray (Woody Allen) that she and a woman friend (Sofía Vergara) wish to experience a ménage à trois and asks if he knows a willing man. Of course Murray, who is Jewish, and whose used bookstore has failed, wants to take an advantage of this situation and he convinces his friend and former employee Fioravante (John Turturro) to take the gig, as both are short of money...
Very light story actually had lots of substance under the surface, and Turturro really shows us a great skill to take stereotypical characters and to portray them in an offbeat and surprising way! I could not believe how funny those offbeat ways could be, and uniquely enjoyable at the same time.
Refreshingly different but still comfortably familiar with Woody Allen giving one of his better performances! Enjoy the sweetness and its silliness.
Sweet family comedy-drama written, produced, and directed by Jon Favreau, and starring Favreau, Sofía Vergara, John Leguizamo, Scarlett Johansson, Oliver Platt, Bobby Cannavale, Dustin Hoffman, and Robert Downey, Jr. Enjoyable Favreau plays a professional chef who, after a public altercation with a food critic, quits his job. His ex-wife has an idea for him to look after their son during the school holidays, and to start his own business - a food truck. He has his young son helping him in driving the truck back to L.A. while selling Cubanos in various cities along the way.
Lovely and sweet story for which Favreau wrote the script in only two weeks, after directing several big-budget films. His wish was to go "back to basics" and to create a film about cooking. And I am thankful for it! Food truck owner and chef Roy Choi served as a co-producer and oversaw all of the menus and food prepared for the film. Well made, with perfectly casted stars, the film grossed over US$45 million at the box office and was well received by critics.
If you love enjoyable, but sometimes shallow situations, lots of feel good moments and excellent acting and directing - do not miss this one.
Interesting story of this comedy-drama directed by Phil Alden Robinson wasn't enough for a positive review. Even with stars like Robin Williams, Mila Kunis, Peter Dinklage and Melissa Leo, there was so much missing. The story follows a physician who accidentally tells her obnoxious patient that he has a brain aneurysm and has only 90 minutes to live. Of course, panicking, the guy is trying to right his wrongs, racing around the city.
A remake of the 1997 Israeli film The 92 Minutes of Mr. Baum, written and directed by Assi Dayan, it had enough originality but lacked directing skills and direction, as well as rhythm and reality.
I am glad that film lasted only 83 minutes, I am not sure that I could last a minute longer!
