Welcome to the Jungle

…we’ve got fun and games. Ok, there’s a little fun, but not a lot; and there are games, but they’re dumb. WttJ is a movie about a boy becoming a man; it’s a YA Novel for the SOUL. Chris (Nick) is an extremely competent beta who learns how to become an extremely competent alpha. The only thing wrong with this movie is its pacing. The acting, set, and costume design are all good. The gags are hit or miss, but when they hit, I laughed. The whole thing is pretty self-aware and it makes it a better film.

Milk Money

Milk Money is a movie about a sociopathic child who manipulates everyone around him. If you like set, prop, and costume design that’s aggressively early Nineties, then this is the movie for you. If you like Ed Harris being a doofus and falling in love with a whore he’s known for like…a day, this is the movie for you. If you like Malcom McDowell playing an English mobster, with strong accent to boot, then this is the movie for you.

We’re doing a new format this week (hey another new format). Instead of watching the movie in real time we are doing a 10-20 minute recap of the plot with our commentary in between. We hope you like it. But if you don’t, I’m sure you’ll let us know.
