If you did not enjoy Tarantino before this film then I believe INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS will change your mind about him. Although Brad Pitt's accent became annoying quickly it is still on my top-ten list. The "fire" scene is one of the most intense and creative scenes in movie history. Thank you, Tarantino, for making another great one.
Although I consider the concept of GAMER an interesting idea, I do believe it could have been portrayed better on screen. It's a movie where you'll walk out of the theater and say these words: "Well, that was pretty cool." However, you'll end up forgetting about the movie by the time you reach your next destination. Cool idea, great cinematography, but an overall decent movie at best.
Slightly cartoonish at times, but overall I enjoyed it. Bateman and Wiig provided good chemisty; however, J.K. Simmons and Koechner stole most of the laughs. A mediocre story mixed with occasional laughter resulting in a moderate review.
P.S.: I am very relieved that Kristen Wiig FINALLY played a different character!
"The Goods: Live Hard, Sell Hard" is what you would expect. It is just ANOTHER comedy that is perverse and filled with similar jokes provided in "Step Brothers" and "Talladega Nights;" however, this movie finds its way into your heart and can be inspiring in an odd way. On one hand, if you're a fan of the comedies listed above, I highly recommend it; nevertheless, if you aren't, don't waste your time. Regardless, Jeremy Piven is humorous but resembles the same character he portrays in "Entourage" making me question his staying power in Hollywood.
