The Two Faces of January
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Slow and uninvolving psychological drama adapted from the Patricia Highsmith novel - the author of the far superior The Talented Mr. Ripley - set in Greece, an American expat (Oscar Isaac) becomes fascinated with a married couple full of secrets (Viggo Mortensen, Kristen Dunst). When murder becomes involved, he helps them to escape but has a hidden agenda himself. Compared to Ripley, this is stagnant material. Dunst was a bright spot, but the 2 male leads' interaction held no tension and the outcome...predictable. The Greek isles are beautiful and the best aspect to this thriller without thrills...

Witching and Bitching
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A seriously funny crime caper meets witch coven with an excellent sense of humour & some thrills too. The opening heist involving pop culture characters (Spongebob Squarepants with an uzi and Jesus Christ robbing a jewelry store of gold) made me chuckle. When Jesus' son, Sergio is being carrier from the heist and firing guns at the police...it's my style of comedy - dark! Then here come the witches (some in drag) & some very sexy (Carolina Bang - what a name and so hot in black leather). The combo of gore/comedy reminds me of Peter Jackson's good work (before the LOTR/Hobbit trite) like "Dead Alive" or "Meet the Feebles". The body count surprised me and the self-kidding moments at the end of the film are great. Loved it! *** 1/2 our of 4-stars!
