Playing For Keeps – Everywhere
Terrible generic rom-com that for some reason is being advertised out the wazoo. Also, if you’ve seen the trailer, you’ve seen the entire movie, because literally every single plot point is hit in that mess. Whoever cut it should be either fired or promoted. I can see nothing positive about this movie, so I’ll probably watch it on a plane one day and cry at the beauty of life, love, and how hard it is for attractive white people to find each other.
Waiting For Lightening – Metreon
Pretty routine inspirational documentary about a sports star. In this case, it’s skateboarding’s Danny Way, a guy who actively tries to kill himself everyday. Not gonna lie, I teared up a little over how Inspiring It All Is, but when I step back to think about it, it’s just pretty silly. But then, so is life. I mean, I’m sitting here writing movie reviews and I’m judging a bro who’s skating the Great Wall. I don’t know where all this twee emotion is coming from, I might still be choked up over the story of a white man conquering it all with a skateboard.
Hitchcock – Everywhere
Always wondered what it was like on the set of a Hitchcock movie? Well, you’ll never find out! But here’s second best, a look into the making of Hitchcock’s classic Psycho. I’m not sure who’s going to enjoy this — fans of the bald director will probably rather be watching one his classics with DVD commentary and those of us who aren’t crazy about his flicks probably just don’t give enough of a shit to pay $20 to see Anthony Hopkins in a ladies pear-shaped bodysuit putting on a weird accent.
Generation P – Embarcadero
It’s Mad Men but all crazy because it’s Russian. Based on Victor Pelevin’s popular cult novel about a meanie Russian poet who gets dragged into the world of advertising. Then, it turns into Crazy People on acid. I’m gonna call it a must-see.
