Retro Movie Review – Jackass 3D

Just in time for the holidays, another round of my favourite form of regression therapy, the Jackass franchise and this time in the now almost obligatory 3D (for sequels at any rate). Now matter how much one simulates the facade of maturity, expose them to juvenile pranks such as this and the boy who laughs at the basest of humour comes out. It almost becomes secondary weather the material warrants it or not, it’s just plain fun to be this kind of kid again. As for the now included 3D ...

Retro Movie Review – Knight and Day

The comic elements of this film provide the viewer with the most entertainment and Cruise is at his best when he tones down his more strident nature on-screen. Cameron Diaz provides just the right amount of wide-eyed innocence to sell her side of the story and together they actually have a fair amount of chemistry.   //   The story, as is the case in most films of this type (a tale of spies and double crosses) is almost completely preposterous and that really just adds ...

Retro Movie Review – American Made

Tom Cruise in one of his strongest roles in years plays Barry Seal, a pilot, government operative, drug runner and so much more. As the number of government agencies he works with add up, so does the level of insanity. The actual sequence of events in Seal’s real life differ quite a bit from the movie’s timeline but why let the truth get in the way of a good story and what a story it is.   //   As a period piece, the clothes, hair and music reinforce a time that ...

Tenet Movie Review

It has to do with a kind of time travel, the much is clear from the trailers but how it plays out is quite unexpected. It is largely impenetrable at first and much of the dialogue needs to be almost sensed as there are artistic discretions taken with sound production. The screenplay also lacks the character-driven influence of Nolan’s brother, Jonathan.   //   The main protagonist is played by John David Washington, of BlacKkKlansman fame and he has a lot to do. His is ...

Retro Movie Review – Baywatch

Getting the mixture of a cringe comedy just right is not an easy task as one person’s comic meal is another’s awful offal but Baywatch more than tickles the funny bone. It plays out just like bad American television, thin plot, thinner actors and The Rock. Mr Johnson gives good comedy and he and the cast look like they were having a right good time with the material.   //   Fans of bad cinema are out there and when you base a bad film comedy on a bad American ...
