Episode 2: The Worst of ’09

We’ve already run out of ideas.  Second episode and we’re already resorting to old material.  So sorry.  So very, very sorry.

Actually, it was a quite lively conversation about some films that just didn’t cut the mustard this year.  Have a listen and leave us a comment at one of our various locations.

3-2-1: The Worst of ’09

Who isn’t looking forward to turkey this Thanksgiving?  We all are, especially the Tryptophan induced coma that comes from eating too much of it.  Here at The Devil’s Advocates Movie Reviews, we don’t always have a choice when turkey might be forced upon us. In fact, we’ve consumed our collective weight in turkey at the theaters this year.  So, we decided to bring you The Worst of ’09, with a Thanksgiving theme.   3 Turkeys (bad films), 2 Jive Turkeys (bad performances), and 1 Turkey Stuffed With Gym Socks (the worst of the worst).  See what we thought, and chime in with your own list.  Read the rest of this entry

3-2-1…The Summer Summation

Transformers: Revenge of The Fallen

As I sat with Mike & Veer Wednesday night after seeing Tranformers: Revenge of the Fallen, I realized while yes it is easy to point out all the flaws of this movie, you should just take it as the summer action flick it’s supposed to be.  Doing so will allow your inner teenage self to enjoy those big butt-kicking, transforming robots we grew up with and loved.

Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, No More than Meets the Eye (Devil’s Advocate Review)

Of the hyped blockbusters of 2009, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen was among the top of my “to-watch list” this summer.  Think about it, it has everything a summer blockbuster should have; action, adventure, explosions (It set a Guinness Book World Record in this category) and of course state of the art special effects.  In the end the movie suffers from the Michael Bay sophomore curse: poor acting and a storyline that leaves one scratching your head.
