Movies Out Today
Heist - “Tower Heist” is what you would call a movie as a
non-descript title during production before a creative person has
thought of a better name. It’s like how “Almost Famous” was known as
“Untitled Cameron Crowe Project” and not changed until right before it
was released. Nobody ever changed “Tower Heist” to anything better, but
that will not stop Brett Ratner from making a serviceable, but not that
good, film. Hey, it’s what he does. This is the man who brought us
the “Rush Hour” trilogy, “Red Dragon” and “X-Men: The Last Stand.” What
do all of those movies have in common? They are all just okay--not
that good, but not that bad. “Tower Heist” has a pretty good cast: Ben
Stiller, Eddie Murphy, Matthew Broderick, Judd Hirsch and Tea Leoni. It
seems like it has to be a big hit. It’s even rated PG-13, which means
you can take your 11-year-old mentally disabled neighbor.
Very Harold and Kumar Christmas - Look, you already know if
you’re going to see this or if you’re staying home and watching
Kurasawa’s films. This film will probably feature lots of puking and
pooping. I tried to watch the second H&K film, but turned it off
after 10 minutes due to all of the gross out humor, of which I am not a
fan. I just don’t find most of it funny. I thought the “Harold and
Kumar go to White Castle” was okay. I was probably incredibly high when
I saw it. See this if you are a stoned Christian looking for a way to
celebrate Christman, but not soberly.
have been playing through “Dead Rising” for a second time and
re-watching episodes of “Psych” on Netflix. If you haven’t seen “Psych”
it is probably worth a watch. I really enjoy it. It’s really funny
and they solve crimes, which, I would like to think, describes me, too.
