Nothing bad at all to say about Woody Allen's latest and masturbatest.
A very very VERY simple film with a very very very simple message. Kind of like reading a children' pop-up book. *Click sound* nice.
I haven't read the novel, but I could tell they had several difficult decisions with what to focus on and what to cut out. For the most part, I feel like the film delivers. Woody Harrelson and Lenny Kravitz were puzzling casting choices, but were actually on point - Kravitz completely surprised me.
So this TRUNCATION was a nice two and a half hour VACATION.
Oops I forgot to review this piece of pristine artwork. It's like a serious art critic failing to comment on the Mona Lisaaaaaaaaaaaaaa (you're tearing me apart Mona Lisaaaaaaaaaa).
Beautiful movie, really really excellent. Nothing bad to say here. I give it 12039/10.
It''s like better than like H&K2...but that isn't saying much because that movie like....blew the Donkey's balls. All 3 of them. And since we're continuing to talk about this DECENT movie as if it was GHANDI...let's just say this: now that I have your attention, the new flixster format SUCKS THE DONKEYS BALLS TOO (all 4 of them).
Dayyyyum this movie was so average I couldn't even find it using flixster's search function.
This movie was hole-ier than a bag of doritos with the bottom busted open. And not hole-ier as in 'We Need to Consult the Pope'...I mean HOLE-IER as in they be plot holes left and right, Sajak.
The movie was witty and as far as the dialogue is concerned, well-written. However, the overall story structure and plot left a lot to be desired.
There's one scene in particular that sums up the movie perfectly:
Paul Kemp (Johnny Depp) is driving Sanderson's (Aaron Eckhart) Corvette through the back roads of Puerto Rico with the smoking hawt Chenault (Amber Heard) in the passenger seat giving him fake handjob, boner-inducing knee grabs to influence the speed of the automobile. As the vehicle speeds through the beach scenery, it quickly approaches a complete dead end with nothing but ocean in front of them. Kemp slams on the brakes, stops the car inches short of the drop-off, and then gets out of the car. Chenault is so turned on that she attempts to make out with him, but he awkwardly looks away. And thus, the scene ends.
This scene = the movie's many subplots, all branching off in different directions, hands going on the knees for some boner possibilities, but then slamming on the brakes in every possible way so that nothing reaches a satisfying conclusion. Everything, even the movie's ending, just stops short of orgasm. Blecko.
Giovanni Ribisi was on FIRE as the crotchety Moburg. Another on point performance. He has aged like fine cheese.
Stand back, boys, there's gonna be a HORSE WAR.
Sentimental sugar baby those tears be flowing outta yo eyeball sockets like milk outta the loose, shaky carton.
Great tour de force by Rooney Mara. Almost called her Maya Rudolph. That would have been an oopsie daysie.
Okay, this Dragon Tattoo of a movie stayed in my mind long after the credits finished rolling. I had to level this juicy monster out at 4 stars. Even keel. Fincher strikes again like a C-O-B-R-A commander.
I feel compelled to give this movie 4 stars. This flick was what Love Actually TRIED to be. Of course, we all know, that that piece of shit failed miserably.
Crazy Stupid Love was in fact the first movie in the history of Hollywood (besides perhaps James Bond) to portray a guy that gets laid a lot as NOT being an asshole. Wow how refreshing! You mean Ryan Gosling's character could actually be someone looking for happiness and just not finding it...and not treating women like garbage? Wow. Unheard of!
Fuck you, Love Actually, this movie insults your manhood to the core.
