Yay movies I have never seen before!
Movie 43: Mon July 25th:
Fundamentals of Caring
Directed by: Rob Burnett
Starring: Paul Rudd, Craig Roberts, Selena Gomez, Jennifer Ehle
It was a nice comedy. Dark humor, but with a feel good tone. It reminded me a lot of Jeff Who Lives at Home. Paul Rudd and Craig Roberts work very well together and I really hope to see them together again soon. Selena Gomez did really well also. I really liked this movie and I am glad I watched it.
Movie 44: Tues July 26th:
Directed by: David F. Sandberg
Starring: Theresa Palmer, Gabriel Bateman, Maria Bello, Alexander DiPersia
Honestly, I loved the short a lot, but I may like this movie more. It is dumb and predictable, but it was fun. The characters weren’t as stupid as they usually are in horror films, and ‘Diana’ was done really well. Plus, the boyfriend was a badass and good character. Props for that guy.
Movie 45: Wed July 27th
Da Vinci Code
Directed by: Ron Howard
Starring: Tom Hanks, Audrey Tautou, Jean Reno, Paul Bettany
God this movie is so boring. It’s not my first time watching it, but it was the first time I was able to get past 30 minutes in without sleeping or turning it off. I love Ron Howard as a director and I love the cast, but it’s too long and boring. I hear Angels and Demons is better, so maybe I will watch that soon.
Movie 46: Thurs July 28th
Now You See Me
Directed by: Louis Leterrier
Starring: Jessie Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman
Again, boring as hell. Too much happening that I just didn’t care about. If you want to watch a movie about magic, watch The Prestige or, hell, watch Arrested Development. I love this cast, but damn did that movie suck.
Movie 47: Fri July 29th
Patton Oswalt: Talking for Clapping
Stand up special of Patton Oswalt
I love Patton Oswalt. He is my favorite living comedian and I am so happy I FINALLY got to watch this. I really enjoyed this special and I really hope he is doing well. He may be one of the greatest entertainers out there. Keep doing what you are doing and I hope you and your family are doing ok. The world loves you Oswalt family.
Movie 48: Sat July 30th
Directed by: Paul McGuigan
Starring: Daniel Radcliffe, James MacAvoy, Jessica Brown Findlay, Andrew Scott
This movie was stupid as hell, however I had a pretty ok time watching it. The cast is so random and good while being ridiculous. It isn’t bad, but I can’t consider it great either. It is like watching Van Helsing, if it was actually entertaining. It’s not on the same level as Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (which I love) nor is it on the low level of I, Frankenstein. It’s right in the middle. Props to Radcliffe and his hunchback simulating abilities, by the way.
Movie 49: Sun July 31st
God Bless America
Directed by: Bobcat Goldthwait
Starring: Joel Murray, Tara Lynne Barr
I am very glad I ended the week with this movie. I loved it. Bobcat is a great director and this is an awesome follow-up to World’s Greatest Dad. Joel Murray is a great actor and I loved every single episode he was in Mad Men and Tara Lynne Barr is fantastic in this. It was a lot of fun and it was like watching a GTA movie. I can’t wait for Goldthwait’s next film.
