THE GOOD, THE BAD, THE WEIRD
For those that have been disappointed with the recent summer action blockbuster slate, consider The Good, The Bad, The Weird the antidote. The film is a Korean tribute to spaghetti westerns, set into motion by a classic MacGuffin: a treasure map. Three strange dudes go after the treasure, and chaos ensues. It’s a simple, unchallenging format—but holy hell is it a load of fun. The film offers just the right blend of old school style and off-the-wall Korean humor, and the action set pieces are as creative as they are brilliantly choreographed. So often we’re forced to endure an incomprehensible flurry of trashing limbs and nightmarish editing, but The Good, The Bad, The Weird keeps its action grounded by setting the stage early, and always letting you know where the characters are as they violently pummel through it.
Available on Blu-ray? Yes.
Notable Extras: DVD & Blu-ray – Cannes highlights and a making-of featurette.

sex-and-the-city-2-trailer-1

The holiday trailer flood continues today with three new clips for one film that has a large, eager audience and two that, to be fair, probably don’t. Sex and the City 2 was inevitable, given the success of the first film, and this is the first footage from the second theatrical reunion of Sarah Jessica Parker, Kim Cattrall, Kristen Davis and Cynthia Nixon.

Michael Patrick King once again writes and directs; he produced the show and wrote, produced and directed the first film. The trailer is a lot of glitz and promise and some shots of Morocco, which was the production’s second location choice after Dubai refused to allow filming. I didn’t see the first film, though I often got a kick out of the show. Unless I’m told that there’s some of the harder-edged comedy of sexual politics that made the show interesting, I expect I’ll skip this one, too. Not that it’ll have any trouble attracting a massive audience.

After the break, some depressing stuff from J-Lo in The Back-up Plan and Brendan Fraser in Furry Vengeance. Read More »
