Every year at this time one is left to ponder, why do we still have daylight savings? I bet you’re pondering it right at this moment. If you’re like me, and I’m sure that you are, you hate it. I got suckered by it twice this weekend, once Sunday morning as well all did and then again Monday as I woke up at 8:30 am (on the old clock), friskily jumped out bed, ready to take on the day! Of course it was 9:30. Lost another hour I did. Dang. We can thank the Germans or the farmers or the German farmers for this nonsense. Why don’t we just stop? Someone stop the madness!
Great week for releases it is. Are you sitting comfortably? Then we’ll begin.
Alvin and the Chipmunks 4: Road Chip – I guess they needed to make another one of these blasted things. What else is Jason Lee going to do to pay the bills? I also guess that a road chip is a piece of chipmunk poo? That probably sums up the movie right there.
The Big Short -Excellent comedy (yes comedy – it’s made by Adam MacKay who made Anchorman and Step Brothers (but don’t let that stop you from watching this fine film) – dealing with the housing bubble and all the confusing corruption thrust upon the people by the big banks. Why aren’t those pricks in jail? Has a great cast, Pitt, Carrell, Bale and our favourite baby duck, Ryan Gosling.
Brooklyn – No it’s not a film about beards and hipsters and kombucha but the tale of an Irish woman moving to NY in the 1950s where she falls in love and stuff. Heard very nice things about this very nice movie.
Carol – Mentioned this fine film last week but we have it at both stores now.
Game of Thrones Season 5 – More dragons! More boobs! More beheadings! More! MORE! (Word of caution – we’re still waiting for most of our shipment to arrive – looks like Wednesday. Our apologies)
Sisters – Two funny ladies – Amy Poehler and Tiny Fey are a couple of siblings (the title kind of gives that away) who decide to throw one last party before their parents sell the family home. Hilarity, I presume, ensues.
Spoils of Babylon – Hilarious little mini-series finds siblings Kristen Wiig and Tobey McGuire driving everyone bonkers with their crazy love for each other. I wonder if that means what I think it means. Part of me hopes so. Will Ferrell adds to the yuks.
Steve Jobs: The Man in the Machine – I guess it has been a few weeks since we’ve last seen something on Steve Jobs. I mean seriously, how many projects to we need on the man? I can only hope that he at least fights a bear in this or goes to outer space or fights a bear in space. Space Bear! Directed by Alex Gibney (Going Clear – Scientology doc) so it has that going for it.
