Brave

One of Pixar’s best films, yet.  You’ll be quickly whisked away by Brave.  Perfectly executed.

Moonrise Kingdom

Wes Anderson delivers, again.  The story line is fresh and entertaining.  Perhaps most importantly, Anderson avoids simply mimicking his previous work.  That being said, this is definitely a film by Wes Anderson – that’s why I suspect many of us will see or have seen it.

9.5/10


King of Limbs

As if there were any doubt. Fantastic.


Behind the Curve: Noise

Noise (2007) stars Tim Robbins as a New Yorker that hates noise and decides to “do something about it.” It a quirky comedy that mocks it’s own characters when they become overly philosophical about what drives them to do what they do. It’s a fun little piece of film.

The cast also boasts Bridget MoynahanWilliam Hurt, and William Baldwin.

Captivating action. Great use of metaphor. And an incredible soundtrack.


Pineapple Express

Dir. David Gordon Green; Writ. Rogen, Goldberg, Apatow; Star. Seth Rogen, James Franco, Danny McBride, and Gary Cole

Another great comedy from Goldberg, Rogen, and Apatow.

I don’t think it was as funny as Superbad, but it’s the funniest movie of the summer.

Pineapple Express is like an Apatow Hot Fuzz in the building up to the conclusion. The less outlandish scenes in the beginning of the movie were the funniest. That’s where these guys’ comedic skill really shows, in the exaggeration of the relatable.

The movie is hilarious, especially in the beginning, while you watch a deadbeat Rogen and his drug dealer Franco hang around and freak out. In the end, it’s still funny, but it’s not the Apatow crew’s specialty.

Danny McBride performs greatly as Red. He really steals the show. McBride is the guy from the Fist Foot Way.

It’s good. Go see it. You should probably get stoned before hand.
