(mx) wrote: Not the best zom-com; not even the best zom-rom-com. Still: a nice Jewish girl comes back a week after her death, triggering a full-scale zombie apocalypse in an affluent (and very Jewish) LA suburb, and the only 2 things that calm them down are A) eating people and B) smooth jazz...It DEFINITELY has its moments..
(nl) wrote: Mount Everest just moved into my pants.Val gets out of jail after twenty-eight years and is picked up by his good friend, Doc, who was on his last mission with him when he got caught. Doc gives Val an overview of his surroundings and resources and Val has visions of living his life to the fullest; maybe doing one more job, and making something of his life outside the joint. Doc is hesitant but not completely resistant."Tomorrow became today.""It usually does."Fisher Stevens, director of Just a Kiss, delivers Stand Up Guys. The storyline for this movie is actually really good and unfolds better than I anticipated. Pacino's acting as the main character is a little too much at times, but Walken as Doc is wonderful and the character is very well written. Alan Arkin, Julianna Margulies, and Craig Sheffer also gave solid supporting performances. "I hope the commode is to your liking."This was a movie I came across on Netflix and thought it may be worth a viewing. It was just okay at the beginning with some entertaining interactions, but the story unfolds pretty well. This actually reminded me of a better version of the recent Equalizer film."Your jab still looks pretty good."Grade: B-/B (7.25)

(au) wrote: A crappy mixup of Gremlins and Toy Story from the guy who brought us Gremlins. Isn't equal to the sum of its individual influences and instead just feels like a retread with an attempted satire on the military and testosterone laden figures for kids.
(it) wrote: The coen brothers tackle Hollywood and the art of screenwriting in this drama movie. The protagonist is suffering from writer's block and he meets some interesting characters along his journey in Hollywood. You never know what direction this movie will take next and that is part of its charm and its what we have come to expect from a Coen brothers movie.
