Movie Review: A Star is Born

Great movie to watch on DVD.

I enjoyed the movie but was annoyed by so many details. Maybe I was looking for errors in filming when I saw the bad of peas wrapped around Lady Gaga's hand disappear or when Sam Elliot moved between scenes. It was annoying.

Bradley Cooper tried too hard to maintain that Kris Kristofferson gravelly voice. It was forced and at times he forgot to gravel. Lady Gaga acted as well as she did in American Horror Story, not very well. She has incredible talent but acting is not one of them. Her rise to fame was fast, too fast, and cheesy. But then again, what can you do when attempting to cram too much into 2 hours? 

I loved the music except for the cheesy hip hop songs by Gaga. "Maybe it's time" was my favorite although I think he sang it 3 times without the gravelly voice. 

It was a great movie for a night at home on DVD.

Movie Review: Fahrenheit 11/9

Democrats, do yourself a favor and watch Fahrenheit 11/9 on 11/7. Until then, donate the $7.00 ticket price to a candidate and take the 2 hours you would have spent watching it and phone bank or block walk for your favorite candidate. In the end you will be doing everyone a favor. Including yourself.

Republicans, do us a favor and go watch what you did to this country by supporting trump.

I don't like Michael Moore. He tends to exaggerate, hijack issues, blame everyone else, and offer up facts based upon incorrect timelines. He didn't disappoint with Fahrenheit 11/9. If you need encouragement to go block walk or phone bank or volunteer to do something for the candidate of your choice, go watch the first 10 minutes. It documents the last hours of election night. It hurts. A lot.

Moore goes on to blame the media for making money off the horrible situation we are now in while he is making money off the horrible situation we are now in. It's vintage Moore. He hijacks the teacher strikes across the country and the March for our Lives movement, although I have a hard time faulting for him since the more attention they get the better. In typical fashion Moore blames "the establishment" and claims, incorrectly, that Bernie Sanders was robbed by framing his message around eye catching film editing. Moore has an agenda. His movie serves him well.

He concentrates on the Flint Michigan water crisis claiming, incorrectly, President Obama didn't declare an emergency for the area. He also claims the army used Flint Michigan for "target practice" implying live ammo was used. It wasn't but he uses cleverly edited clips of night time drills and trains carrying tanks, even though tanks were not used.

As I said, I don't like Michael Moore. If you are inclined to watch this, do so after the election. Until then, get off your ass so we can fix the horrible situation we are now in.

Movie Review: Papillon

Find the original 1973 movie on DVD featuring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. Rent it. Watch it. Save yourself $9.53.

In the original movie they were able to show how the human body would deteriorate after years in solitary confinement. In the new one Charlie Hunnan, at the end of the movie looked like he did at the beginning. Somehow he had all of his perfect teeth, his sanity, and a nice haircut throughout the movie. It was almost laughable to see Charlie coming out of a 5 year confinement and slowly turning into the camera looking as if he was in for only a few days. They really missed this moment. In the original I can remember McQueen sticking his head out of his cell, spitting out a tooth, and laughing in a crazy way. There was nothing in this movie that showed the aging of Charlie.

His acting was just so-so but you expect that from Jax...I mean Charlie. He can't seem to get out of the Sons of Anarchy role. Contributing to this Chibs from SOA, Tommy Flanagan, had a very short cameo. Charlie was the right person to play Steve McQueen. At times, maybe on purpose, he actually looked like McQueen in a few scenes.

Wasn't worth 2 hours and $9.53 especially at AMC with no reclining seats.

Movie Review: Mile 22

Wait for it to hit DVD.

This is an action packed movie which could have been a lot better if I had sat in the last row or the film director had invested in stabilizers for his cameras. This wasn't a very memorable movie, to the point I cant remember much about it and for good reason. It just wasn't that good. The ending added a great twist that made you wonder "What the hell was that about?" and "Why did I pay $8 to see it?" and "Where the hell did I park my car?". Memorable.

Mark Wahlberg was saddled with a character with anger issues and mental conditions, the exact characteristics needed in a FBI/CIA agent. (not!) Besides flying off the handle and long winded explanations to his adversaries and team members, he has a bad habit of snapping a rubber wrist band to control his outbursts. It doesn't work very well and it was annoying. Very annoying. Throughout the entire damn movie! For god's sake take a downer!

One of the best part of the move is Rhonda Rousey. She was knocked off early so we were spared her horrible acting abilities. Rousey has a habit of looking like she is faking a bad ass snarl on her face right up to the point she gets her ass knocked out, twice. She needs to stick to the WWE where bad acting and fake snarls are requirements for a wrestler.

Overall this was just a notch above a straight to DVD movie.
