Movie Review: Bad Grandpa

Look, you know what you’re going to get out of Bad Grandpa.  Going into it I anticipated plenty of poop, child neglect, and horny old man jokes.  And that’s exactly what I got.  If anything, Bad Grandpa is sort of commendable in the fact that it pretty much delivers exactly what you’d expect.  No better or worse.

Lazy Movie Review: The Counselor

Premise:  Directed by Ridley Scott and written by Cormac McCarthy, The Counselor is a story about a lawyer only referred to as “Counselor,” who gets tangled up in some sort of bad drug deal or something?  Brad Pitt plays a cowboy or something?  And Cameron Diaz thinks she’s a cheetah or something?  I’m going to be 100% honest with you, I couldn’t tell you all the details of this convoluted story even if you threatened to decapitate me, which is something that happens like three times in this movie.

CARRIEvCARRIE

I saw the new 2013 remake of Carrie this week, and instead of doing a normal review, I thought I’d just compare it to the original like a jerk and see which one is better.  The Rage: Carrie 2 will not be discussed.  Ever.

Lazy Movie Review: Escape From Tomorrow

Premise:  A guy is informed that he’s losing his job while on vacation with his family at Disney World.  So he gets drunk and (possibly?) starts having weird visions, and there’s (possibly?) some big conspiracy.  I don’t know.  The plot is kind of a half-thought.  Escape From Tomorrow is more widely known as the film that was shot (mostly) at Disney World (and its many hotel rooms), without the permission of Disney.  I think at the current time, Disney isn’t taking any action against them, as to not give the film any more publicity.  Good move on Disney’s part, because this movie probably doesn’t deserve much more publicity.
