Devil’s DVD Advocacy: Thor

“I still don’t think you’re the god of thunder… but you ought to be”

Marvel Studios (the movie branch of the comic publisher) struck gold with Iron Man – a movie whose success they’ve been trying to replicate ever since. Does Thor once again capture lightning in a bottle, or is the thunder-god’s movie just a passing drizzle? Read the rest of this entry

Devil’s DVD Disappointment: Your Highness

Every now and then, I am pleasantly surprised at the movies. And, every now and then, I am devastatingly disappointed at the movies. I know I am biased to stoner movies and silly comedies. I really wanted to like this movie. I am a big fan of everyone involved in this. On paper and in the trailers for Your Highness, the movie looked funny and, you know, good. But, once again, Hollywood does the “let’s put the best parts in the trailer” move and they got me. With Your Highness, I was shocked and awed by how awfully terrible this movie is. Your Highness is 2011’s worst movie by a mile.

Devil’s DVD Advocacy: Black Swan

Black Swan is a movie about ballet.  Men and women dancing in unitards to orchestral music.  Ballet.  Wait…no.  It’s not about ballet. It’s about the principle of morality.  NO…BALLET!!!  MORALITY!!!  BALLET!!!   I’m really of two minds on the issue.
