8.5 Headshots/10


Right Now, The World Needs A Hero


Directed by Jody Hill

Starring Seth Rogen, Anna Faris, Michael Pena, Ray Liotta

Release Date 2009


Whats it about?

A security guard and his team try to catch a serial flasher


The Movie

Observe and Report isnt the full of laughs movie that the trailer made it out to be. It is however, a very funny movie if you can find something to connect with.. or just enjoy the sense of humor. Its such a over the top movie becasue the job it portrays is alot of the time taken way to seriouslly by the workers (a security guard).. which is what makes the movie good. The supporting cast is great as well. All of his security team and mall employess play great dumbass characters. Seth Rogen is the character that he usually is and plays very well. I guess I liked it more then others becasue me and my buddies have done the type of job and can connect with how dumb the situations that a guard can get into. Overall good for a once over (unless you enjoy the sense of humor like me then many veiwings) even if you are disspointed by how the trailer made it look. Take it as a mindless comedy/drama about a mindless job and you'll find something you like.


Violence Report

Some very funny fist fights, a great bullet hit


Eye Candy

Some boobs in the changing room, the guys checking out hotties walking by..and Anna Faris dresses like a ho the whole time


Verdict

Great sense of humor, great random violence, lots of great quotes

 


Law Abiding Citizen Review

7.25 Headshots/10


The System Must Pay


Directed by F. Gary Gray

Starring Gerard Butler, Jamie Foxx

Release Date 2009


Whats it about?

10 years after his family is killed and himself left for dead, Butlers character starts exactly revenge on everone that allowed the criminal to be free


The Movie

Well, to start off I really like Gerard Butler and Jamie Foxx is usually really good, and I also like revenge films.... so this had that going for it right away. The story itself starts off as most revenge films do with a horrific act happening to a regular joes family. That scene is a hard one to watch espcially if you have a family of your own. After that the revenge part of the story takes off when 10 years later Butler starts teaching his lesson to the law that let him and his family down with light sentences. The plot moves nicely and is acted out well. The reason I gave this a 7 out of 10 was  becasue I felt no sympathy for Foxx's(the attorney) character and thats what the film tried to make you feel... he didn't deserve any and in the end the film tried to twist the justice back to the hero of the film.. which in my opinion totally ruined the message it tried to get across. Overall top notch acting, good plot, but marked down by a stupid ending and fate for the real hero of the film Butler.


Violence Report

This movie brought the revenge in brual fashion. Lots of cuts, shootings, burns..alot of blood makes this a good violent romp


Eye Candy

We get a ho have naked but other then that nothing


Verdict

Great acting, great violence, good plot. Character resolution wasnt what I had hoped for. Still good for a viewing but nothing really to bring you back for a repeat.

 


Big Fan Review

Posted on June 18, 2010 at 1:35 AM Comments comments (0)

7 Headshots/10


Directed By Robert D. Siegel

Starring Patton Oswalk, Kevin Corrigan, Michael Rapaport

Release Date 2009


Whats it about?

A super fan of the NY Giants takes his fan status to a different stage when he's beaten up by his favorite star and has to deal with it.


The Movie

If you expecting a big comedy movie (seeing that its in the comedy section and features 2 comedic actors)then you will be let down at the lack of big laughs... but not at the quality of the movie that plays out. Its a drama centered around a 40something super sports fan that mixes his sunday fandom into his everyday life which kinda makes him not see the world for what it is... which leads to some bad decisions (following a sports star to bad neighborhoods?) and finally to the final dumbass move he makes that leads him into a dark stage in his life. The story itself plays out well and keeps you entertained through likeable characters and thoughtful writing. Oswalks character clearly has some problems which are portayed well in the film weather its him spending his work day writing what hes going to say to his favorite sports talk radio, to arguing with his mother about staying up late.  All in all its a good story with good acting/writing. The bad decisions would be cliche in a horror movie but here they work because they show what the character is..... a big fan.


Violence Report

Oswalt gets a beatdown by a huge football player. Its kinda sad scene seeing a huge dude beat up a little guy


Eye Candy

Some strippers but no nudity


Verdict

Good story made better by likeable characters. Has a slower pace but is worth a watch
