Kevin Smith’s “Tusk” is the epitome of an amusing joke that goes on for too long. Worse than that, it’s the sort of joke that doesn’t know what sort of gag it wants to be.
In “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” Michael Bay faces a challenge that George Lucas is ever to familiar with. Replacing costumes and puppetry with animation.
With a cast including Chadwick Boseman, Nelsan Ellis, Octavia Spencer, Dan Akroyd and Viola Davis, Taylor uses both young acting talent and more seasoned veterans to help craft a story around James Brown’s thoroughly interesting life.
“Guardians of the Galaxy’ is a giant step for Marvel. After spending nine films focusing on Earth, the studio leaves the blue and green planet behind and gives audiences a tour of the stories and characters that exist beyond our planet’s reach. And it is all very weird, smart and wonderful.
“Obvious Child” is the most fun you are likely to have this close to an abortion, and that’s a promise.
When we think about the “old west,” our minds always gravitate towards the excitement and adventure, the outlaws and the opportunity. We never really think about it long enough to realize how much it would actually suck to live back in the 1800′s, especially in the old west. “A Million Ways to Die in the West” is Seth MacFarlane’s ode to just that.
The X-Men have existed together as a franchise since 1963 and have amassed countless fans in that time and Bryan Singer has only added to these numbers when he helped bring the mutant crew to the big screen first in 2000. Now seven films in, Fox has worked for the last decade and a half building their cinematic universe with some misses and stumbles along the way and it is all brought together in “X-Men: Days of Future Past.”
“Neighbors” begins as we meet a married couple Mac and Kelly Radner (Seth Rogen and Rose Byrne) with a young newborn who are stuck in between the phases of wanting to keep the party going and wanting to slow down and enjoy their new family. When the house next door goes up for sale, a fraternity from the nearby college buys it and immediately has a loud party the first night, much to the dismay of Mac and Kelly. They struggle with what to do because they want to be the “cool neighbors,” but also know that they need sleep. Teddy (Zac Efron), the president of the frat, hopes to win them over by flattery and camaraderie so they will not call the police, but when that doesn’t work, all hell breaks loose.
Removing the satirical elements of the original “Robocop” and focusing on a more grounded, emotional story with improved action is not a problem in and of itself. Doing these things poorly however presents more problems than one would imagine.
