Movie Review: The Joneses (April 16, 2010 – Limited Release)

Director: Derek Borte Screenplay: Derek Borte, hemorrhoids Randy T. Dinzler Release Date: April 16, for sale 2010 Actors: David Duchovny, Demi Moore, Amber Heard, Ben Hollingsworth, Gary Cole, Glenne Headly, Lauren Hutton I was a bit spoiled entering the theatre by reading the synopsis to the film, so I think I will give everyone fair warning that THERE WILL BE SPOILERS in this review – starting NOW. The Joneses are moving into a beautiful large home in a small town. The Joneses consist of Kate (Demi Moore), Steven (David Duchovny), and kids Jenn (Amber Heard) and Mick (Ben Hollingsworth). They’ve decorated their new home in amazingly beautiful and current furniture, dressed in the latest clothes and holding the newest gadgets, enough to make any neighbour enviable. But they aren’t the core unit and happy bubbly family they seem to be. They’ve in fact been hired by a company to self market a specific number of products by their clients and make their neighbours, their new friends and schoolmates want what they’ve got. Steve is the rookie of the unit, constantly knawed by his conscious and being fully aware that he is pretending being someone he’s not. He tries to make […]

Movie Review:Death at a Funeral (April, 2010)

Director: Neil LaBute Screenplay: Dean Craig Release Date: April 16, treatment 2010 Actors: Chris Rock, viagra Martin Lawrence, Luke Wilson, Tracy Morgan, Zoe Saldana, Danny Glover, James Marsden, Columbus Short, Peter Dinkling, Keith David, Regina Hall, Ron Glass Based on the British film of the same name (remake) Based on the amusing British original film of the same name, Death at A Funeral is a movie full of misses rather than hits. About a upper class wealthy black family who has recently lost their head of household — their father, Chris Rock plays the older son (Aaron), and Martin Lawrence plays the younger son (Ryan), who is a household name by writing not-so-good books. They’re about to have a wake for their dad, and their very dysfunctional family and friends start to arrive. But before the funeral can really begin, things start to run awry. With a huge star cast including Danny Glover, Zoe Saldana, James Marsden, Regina Hall, Keith David, Ron Glass, Keith Dinklage, Columbus Short, Loretta Devine, Luke Wilson, Tracy Morgan, one would hope that this comedy would be funny, but it retains none of the British humor in this not-so-good remake. The jokes that are made aren’t […]

Movie Review: Kick-Ass (April, 2010)

Director: Matthew Vaughn Screenplay: Jane Goldman, pharm Matthew Vaughn Release Date: April 16, website like this 2010 Actors: Aaron Johnson, Clark Duke, Evan Peters, Nicolas Cage, Chloe Moretz, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Mark Strong, Lyndsy Fonseca Based on the comic of the same name by Mark Millar Chloe Moretz completely steals the film as a 12 year old martial arts and firearms expert that also happens to be a superhero. I mean, even writing that seems kind of kick ass, you know? Kick-Ass quite possibly might be the best superhero movie since the Dark Knight, but in a completely different, almost endearing way. Aaron Johnson plays Kick-Ass, the alter ego of plain and geeky (and apparently invisible to girls) high school student Dave Liezewski. Thin and timid, Dave with his two friends Marty (Clark Duke, from the recent hilarious Hot Tub Time Machine) and Todd (Evan Peters) enjoy comic books, fooling around all the while finding themselves being taken advantage by the “mean guys” in the neighbourhood. Dave, wondering why no one ever decides to become a superhero after reading and watching so many superhero stories, decides to become and invent his own superhero…. “Kick-Ass”! In the meantime, in another part of […]
