Seven Psychopaths is one of those movies that makes its intent clear. It’s about crazy people who do crazy things. Luckily, even if you can use your brain to figure out the general direction of the film, there is still enough that will surprise and delight you.
We're a month away from the seventh season premier of the USA network's long-running hit show Psych. Executive Producer Steve Franks gives us a few details on what to expect in the upcoming season, including a strong shift in tone at the beginning of the season.
In an era of endless sequels and reboots, we have become increasingly tolerant of how far movie makers will stretch for an original idea. I suppose it’s up to movie audiences to tell them when they've gone too far. Nazis are invading from space? OK. It seems more plausible than Abraham Lincoln fighting vampires.
Do you ever feel like you just want to watch a bad movie? The problem, it seems, is that bad movies are almost always certain to be boring as well. Thankfully, there is a solution to this dilemma; it's called The Ice Pirates. It's in the same sci-fi vein as Star Wars but reeks from the influence of 80's pop culture. A more accurate label would be train crash. You just can't look away.
Like Kevin Costner, Mel Gibson, and Robin Williams, the 2000's were not kind to the film career of Eddie Murphy. Somewhere along the way either because of the films he was in or the characters he repetitively played, he fell out of favor with audiences. Beverly Hills Cop is a good reminder why we fell in love with him in the first place, and why he was and arguably still is a great talent.
Earlier in the week I got the chance to check out the latest Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis comedy, The Campaign. While it bobbles slightly at the beginning of the film, it pulls itself together quickly, and ends up just as funny as you hoped it would be.
