Hot Tub Time Machine

Posted by Anthony H - April 2nd, 2010

As much as I love John Cusack, last night’s outing to the Alamo Draft House didn’t quite meet expectations.  It didn’t help that I was stressed, had just finished a very serious conversation and had only a lemonade in front of me.  I think I also prefer John in those more snappy roles where the dialog is machine gun witty-fast; where you know that most people in the theater are missing 65% of the jokes.  [don’t worry, I know you’re not one of them]  Bottom Line: Hot Tub Time Machine is a potty mouth movie of the same variety as Super Bad.  I have nothing against potty words unless they are unrelenting and obscure the dialog…which in my opinion is the case here.  I laughed a bit.  But only a bit.  Thumbs down.

Real Confusion in Fake Worlds

Posted by Anthony H - January 26th, 2010

If you haven’t seen “The Hurt Locker” you should, provided that you can handle the real world’s desperate lack of sense being mirrored in fiction.  The film is heroic, confused and heart wrenching without being super human, incoherent or falling into sobbing pathos.
