Muddled Mess (Screen Zealots Review)


LOUISA SAYS:

Packed with a who’s-who of A-list stars, “Hail, Caesar!” is an utterly confusing and borderline mess of a movie. It seems like one very long and very confusing in-joke about the Golden Age of the Hollywood studio system.

The oddball script doesn’t make much sense even for those who are well versed in the history of Hollywood. I counted at least a dozen “WTF?” moments that left me scratching my head and wondering what the heck the intention of this movie is. It’s sort of an un...

Funny Sex Comedy (Screen Zealots Review)


LOUISA SAYS:

In what will inevitably be compared to teen classics “American Pie” and “Napoleon Dynamite,” Indian import “Brahman Naman” is a worthy addition to coming of age comedies. It’s a fun premise: a group of loser quiz team nerds in 1980s India are obsessed with sex and girls; the hugely likeable cast makes this movie soar. This funny film is part raunchy sex comedy and part educational documentary about the caste system in India. Interspersed with brilliant animated sequences (I want...

Vulgarity Not Comedy (Screen Zealots Review)


LOUISA SAYS:

“Dirty Grandpa” is crass, crude, rude, gross and just plain unfunny. Vulgarity should never be confused with humor, but it is here and the film is terrible as a result. I didn’t find the movie offensive but I did find it very sad: I’m sad for Robert DeNiro and Zac Efron for agreeing to star in this nasty, mean-spirited spring break bender movie. It’s poorly made to boot: the story makes zero sense and half of the joke set-ups quickly crash and burn. I’m sure the surf shop propri...

Good Genre Film (Screen Zealots Review)


LOUISA SAYS:

I don’t respond well to westerns but I love a good ass-kicking heroine, and “Jane Got A Gun” delivers just that. Try to ignore the miscasting of Natalie Portman as the titular Jane and relish the perfect casting of Joel Edgerton as a rancher who helps her defend her home against a gang of ruthless outlaws. Ewan McGregor, playing a campy sort of Black Bart villain complete with a giant black hat and horrendous fake teeth, is shamefully wasted here.

Director Gavin O’Connor seem...

Quality Animation (Screen Zealots Review)


LOUISA SAYS:

I’m tough on animated movies because as a fan of the art form, I expect quality all around. I frequently bemoan the current state of animated films, but I’m happy to report that the Kung Fu Panda franchise is still just as dependable and smart as ever. Our cuddly black and white hero Po is back, and this time he must train his fellow pandas in the art of kung fu in order to save the entire kingdom from ruin.

Excellent voice talent (from Jack Black, Bryan Cranston, Dustin Hoff...

Wasted Talent (Screen Zealots Review)


LOUISA SAYS:

Ice Cube and Kevin Hart are both immensely charismatic actors but their talent far outweighs the weak material they have to work with in “Ride Along 2.” They are both way too good to be starring in such junk. This terribly unfunny movie fails on every level possible. It’s not funny, it’s not exciting, the dialogue is abysmal, the lame gags fall flat, and a coherent plot is nonexistent. By the time the movie picks up some steam with a shipping dock shootout, it’s far too late for...

Captivating, but Harshly Depressive


'Anomalisa' is one of the most unique animated films I've ever seen. It utilizes proven methods of stop-motion animation and puppetry to engulf us in a completely realistic environment. The look and feel is almost exactly that of real life. This begs the question of "why present this story though animation?". Well, the visuals do add a significant level of engagement to an otherwise mundane plot. It allows us to focus much more heavily on the inner thoughts and emotions of the ma...
