This review is right that the movie sizzles most when Gosling is on screen. Unfortunately, he's not on screen for all that long. I kept hoping and even assuming that he would come back as a ghost.
Casa Video has great customer service. I was looking for the Japanese film Survive Style 5+ on DVD. Apparently the previous copy had been damaged, so the staff on duty made a note of it and one week later it was replaced with a new copy.
There's also a lot of eclectic movies available at Casa that aren't available anywhere else—not all movies have yet been converted to a digital format, especially the eccentric odd-ball good stuff.
I am moving to Tucson in a couple weeks and I am so pleased to know this establishment exists and is healthy. I experienced a similar store in my former location: locally owned, comprehensive inventory, friendly staff and comfortable atmosphere. Why is this an anomaly? This is a testament to the quality of life in Tucson. Cheers.
It was terrible. I totally agree
Aw, come on, Bob. Come on, come on, come on, come on. We BOTH know Spring Breakers is a great movie!
It is too bad the Dupnik doesn't enforce the law with the same vigor as Joe. But you all know he is nothing more than a puppet for the Democrat Party.
Thanks, Colin Boyd, for writing about this film and thanks to the TW for publishing the schedule that the film is showing at the Loft.
East Valley NewsNet, go piss up a rope, jodido. Your are the pig.
Fantastic review. Dead on. During the movie, I went to the bathroom and texted, "This movie is horrid. I'm going to hurt myself."
Your line about the "screensaver" look is perfect. There was no magic in this movie. Black magic, maybe, because somehow I was tricked into wasting 16.00 for me and my son.
Ah yes, the "tacky" taste of American Movie goers....
That scene was FUNNY!!!
"Hollywood ... please ... don't squander McCarthy's talent."
Ya mean the crapping in a bathroom sink talent?
Midroad 3...if you see it on TV someday, watch the Naomi Watts sketch...then switch it off or run away from you TV set.
Was interested in seeing this before the movie critics started weighing in, but the reviews have been so universally bad, I think I'll pass.
Hollywood script writers ran out of good ideas several decades ago. When does "Battleships II" come out???
Hey Sara...I think this film is a lot "smoother" than The Hurt Locker. I didn't notice any shaky cam getting on my nerves.
I'd like to see this, but am wondering if it was filmed in the same manner as "Hurt Locker"...with the handheld cameras? I had to walk out of that movie before I got physically sick. Thanks!
Hi Matt -
Well, for starters, all films are manipulative. Can you name one that didn't ask you to believe something based only on the story it was telling? And while I didn't like the film nearly as much as Bob and agree with you about the strength of Hathaway's performance, I'm not in the 'sappy bullshit' camp with you. I just didn't feel anything larger than a healthy respect for it, but as a production and spectacle, Les Miserables is exceedingly well-assembled.
Anne Hathaway's one-take performance of whatever-the-fuck-the-song's-called is most likely the coolest thing in this 'film', however, the rest of this is just sappy, manipulative bullshit.
Anyone (including Bob Grimm) wanna feedback to me?
It's perplexing to me how Jamie Foxx continues to get jobs despite his defense of Michael Vick's dogfighting operation.
