For some reason I this is the only way I feel like 'reviewing' these days:
BARBERSHOP: Marginally entertaining, one (me) wonders if the humor would have gotten a boost w/ an R rating. Still though, moderately enjoyable and quite harmless.
A MIGHTY WIND: Let's see what's wrong w/ this one: no character development, boring musical numbers, woeful lack of laughs, and the cheapest joke ever-- Shearer's cross-dressing resolution. What the hell happened w/ this one? Willard is funny as always though, provided the only laughs.
MATCHSTICK MEN: Because I've seen, you know, movies before, the *twists* were seen coming four score and seven years before they happened. I really hate Ridley Scott.
MORVERN CALLAR: Lynne Ramsey = female David Gordon Green. Technically wonderful and acted to perfection. The story almost meandered out of my reach, but I still enjoyed it.
THE TOWN IS QUIET: And I am sleeping.
THIRTEEN: The end of the 2nd act is weak *RIMSHOT!* but it wraps up nice and there's some good acting by the ladies. I felt dirty watching the Kip Pardue scene.
8 WOMEN: I don't know what to make of this one. Campy, stilted, insane, goofy, and just plain bonkos. Ozon clearly knows this, so I can't fault him for it. Lordy, did little Ludivine grow up fast.
PYROKINESIS: Japanese 'Firestarter.' Seriously. Nice effects of people being burned to to a crisp, but otherwise quite dull and not one that will be remade soon. But who knows.
EDIT: Haggard grammar.
