Week in Review: 3/13/16

Movies I Watched in the Last Week

1) Invisible Mom II - I watched this for my side blog.  It's dumbness is sadly not outweighed by its fun.

My Rating: 1 / 5

2) Kung Fury - Man, I hate feeling like I'm the asshole who's crapping on everyone else's fun.  But this is kind of an obnoxious movie.  There's some great comedy bits in here and a ton of excellent attention to detail, but the obvious use of CGI and the over-the-top video game effects end up taking away from the overall homage-iness of what it's trying to do.  After about ten minutes it falls too far down the well of trying-too-hard "OMG IM SO RANDOM AND WACKY" Internet-clever where it's trying to outdo itself instead of just be a story.  I see this being the kind of thing that's really popular for about two years and is remembered fondly, but in like ten years people will probably cool down and lock it in the same cupboard where they keep Numa Numa and the Star Wars kid video.  Timeless it ain't, even though there's definitely some great laughs.

Only 30 minutes though, so that's good.

My Rating: 3 / 5
