Tower Heist – Everywhere
A bunch of old dudes and Gabourey Sidibe (Spelled her name right on the third try! Love you, girl!) go all crazy on some other old man who steals their money. It’s basically an incompetent Oceans 11. It kinda reminds me of an ensemble comedy action flick from the 80’s — Big Business meets Beverly Hills Cop? It’s like the opposite of Judd Apatow. Anyway, I’m feeling it. Eddie Murphy is in it, actually looking and sounding like Eddie Murphy, instead of an obese farting grandma or a donkey, so that’s exciting.
A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas – Everywhere
I seriously love this franchise, and the rest of the world agrees, so John Cho and Kal Penn will be making these movies on the regular until they’re dead. Which might be sooner rather than later because they’re put through the ringer. If they’re not making out with raccoons, they’re sticking their wangs in blenders. Guys, be careful! Rain appeared to enjoy it, here’s her review.
Martha Marcy May Marlene – Everywhere
The littlest Olsen stars as the girl with many names in this psychological thriller about a cult. It’s scary, slow, and sometimes scarily slow! John Hawkes, who plays Danny McBride’s hilarious older brother on Eastbound & Down, is completely creepy as the cult leader who looks at you sideways and all of a sudden you’re skinning a cat. Seriously, the dude’s got moves. Terrifying moves. If you’re in the mood to be scared shitless/possibly be a little bored, check it out!
Revenge of the Electric Car – Embarcadero
This sequel to 2006’s Who Killed the Electric Car? is more hopeful than the last documentary, but still depressing. If you’re interested in the sustainability of the American auto industry, you probably don’t read my re-caps, so why am I still typing?
