Spring Breakers (review)

Spring Breakers (review)

Four chicks go to Fla for vaca and end up involved with a very funky gangster (James Franco with braids and gold teeth). There’s about 20 minutes of total narrative here. The rest is a montage of college partying (tons of T&A, blunts, booze and blow) and bad arty montages with repetitive VO. Franco is fun to watch as he chews the scenery with those goldies and even goes down on two guns,... »

Mental

There’s a family of 5 crazy girls…at least the girls think so. After their mom is sent away, dad hires a weirdo (Toni Collette) to watch them. Of course, she does lots more. This film desperately tries to be quirky and there’s lots of energy propelling it in that direction. However, it just turns out to be frantic and misguided. When things gets serious in the last 30 minutes, it becom... »

Gangster Squad

In 1949 Hollywood, a gangster from New York (Sean Penn) muscles his way into the West Coast crime syndicates. To bring him down, a renegade cop (Josh Brolin) assembles a team of outsiders (including Ryan Gosling). This is a time when everybody smoked and women were called “tomatoes.” This film’s elegant period style and suave, snappy dialogue verge on parody, but director Rubin F... »

Stand Up Guys

The film starts as Al Pacino gets out of prison after 28 years. He’s met by his best friend, Christopher Walken, and they spend one wild night before it’s Walken’s job to kill Pacino. Sure, the characters have names, but it doesn’t matter. This is an indulgent acting workout for the two leads (plus Alan Arkin in a funny smaller role). The dialogue is forgettable, the situat... »

Parker

Jason Statham plays himself: This time as a pro thief who gets double-crossed by his gang, causing him to seek revenge. It’s a pretty standard story with steady beats of action: lots of hand-to-hand, but not much that shows off his skills. Jennifer Lopez shows up to add some feminine charms, but the role is useless. Even though this is starting to sound negative, the movie is solid and never... »

Quartet

This year’s “Exotic Marigold Hotel” in so many ways: a group of (even more) elderly interact, look back at their lives and face the inevitable with pluck, grace and humor. This time, they’re residents of a home for retired musicians and opera singers. Everyone is preparing for the annual fundraiser, when a grand diva (Maggie Smith) arrives and, of course, refuses to sing. T... »
