It’s the near future and because overpopulation has started to triple the planet the government has outlawed having siblings. And by “outlawed” I mean to say “they’ll maybe kill your extra kids”. This poses a problem for Willem Dafoe when his septuplet granddaughters are born. Let’s take a look.

Murder on the Orient Express is one of the most famous murder mystery stories ever so I’m actually kind of shocked that they haven’t remade it sooner. It’s here now though, with a cast of thousands of famous faces and a really terrible song choice. Let’s watch!

Keanu Reeves loves two rings in this movie: his sweet ride and his sweet puppy dog. Then Alfie Allen comes along and takes one and kills the other. Too bad for him it turns out Keanu Reeves has a degree in ass kickery with a minor in shooting people in the face.
Movies, Reviews / Comments Off on Review: The Grand Budapest Hotel
Wes Anderson is a film maker with a distinct voice. He tells stories with emotional cores and often tells them using characters that don’t always seen to want to, or even know how to, express those emotions and sets them in a world that is just over the border into absurdity and littered with all kinds of fine detail, interesting colour palettes, and now stop motion.
Basically he crafts a whimsical world and then populates it with non-whimsical people.
In any event, The Grand Budapest Hotel may be his best film yet by virtue of the fact that it’s probably the most Wes-Anderson-y film he’s made to date, but in the best way possible.
Out of the Furnace is a movie that, on paper, looks like it should be amazing. Christian Bale, Forest Whitaker, Sam Shepard, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, and Zoe Saldana are all talented actors and Scott Cooper’s previous film, Crazy Heart was a solid effort which earned it’s lead actor an Academy Award.
That’s on paper though. Unfortunately if you’ve seen a trailer for Out of the Furnace then you will not be surprised by anything that happens in the movie. In fact, even if you haven’t seen the trailer you won’t be surprised by anything that happens in the movie.

Wes Anderson makes a certain flavour of film. I like to call it “Wes Andersony” because he’s the only guy that makes that particular flavour. The Grand Budapest Hotel appears to be the most Wes Andersony film yet. Let’s watch!
