saw some truly guff films this week
One about a dope smoking/dealing guy paying his shrink with weed – I cant even remember the title – it got turned off so quickly 0/10
Burn After Reading – with Brad Pitt as a gay personal trainer, John Malkovich as an ex-CIA analyst, Tilda Swinton as his bitchy wife, George Cloony as a serial womanizer and a few others. Some funny moments, but mostly, awful. John Malkovitch is truly weird in a way that wasnt actually funny, the plot was so lame, hard to follow and really boring and I just couldn’t see the point. Brad Pitt was funny and provided just about the only moments of joy in the film. 1/10
And the last and final guff film of the week – Journey to Center of the Earth. Jules Verne must be turning in his grave. Where do I start with this film? Hollywood needs to get real – its so cliched and shiny in a predictable love interest, terrible set, corny moment (the glowing bird bit – ffs, what were they thinking!) and unbearably happy ending kind of a way that I almost stopped watching it. An awful film make along the lines of Indiana Jones but with a tiny fraction of the skill and imagination, a dreadful, nasty, stereotyped, lacklustre, hideous example of “family blockbuster” 2/10
so – what next?
