When you lead two different lives, it’s easy to forget what side you’re on.

My rating: 4 out of 5

Television made him famous, but his biggest hits happened off screen. “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind” is the story of a legendary showman’s double life – television producer by day, CIA assassin by night. At the height of his TV career, Chuck Barris was recruited by the CIA and trained to become a covert operative. Or so Barris said.

With no power comes no responsibility.

My rating: 3 out of 5

A calamity at Dante and Randall’s shops sends them looking for new horizons – but they ultimately settle at Mooby’s, a fictional fast-food restaurant. Free from his dead-end job (and lodged in a new one), Dante begins to break free of his rut, planning to move away with his clingy fiancé. Dante is ready to leave the horrors of minimum-wage New Jersey behind, but Randal – always the more hostile of the two – starts to become overwhelmed by his own rancor.

Tycker den första filmen är riktigt rolig. Hänger dock inte med på varför det först nu kommer en uppföljare? Men den kan man ju inte missa. Men jag tror att detta är en film man ska se i glada kompisars lag. Kompisar med samma låga humor som en själv och de bör gärna ha ett ganska stort filmintresse. Filmen har alltså låg humor och en hel del filmreferenser. Alltså ungefär som den första filmen. Med andra ord tycker jag denna filmen känns som en upprepning av den första filmen.

Some stories are real

Product Image: Lady in the Water
My rating: 3 out of 5

Apartment building superintendent Cleveland Heep (Giamatti) rescues what he thinks is a young woman from the pool he maintains. When he discovers that she is actually a character from a bedtime story who is trying to make the journey back to her home, he works with his tenants to protect his new friend from the creatures that are determined to keep her in our world.

Med denna filmen visar M. Night Shyamalan att han är en ganska ojämn regissör. Vissa filmer han gör är riktigt bra (The Sixth Sense, The Village) och några som inte alls är lika bra (Unbreakable, Signs). Denna ligger väl någonstans mittemellan de sämre och de bättre. Riktigt spännande historia men känns lite tråkigt utförd. Paul Giamatti är som vanligt mycket bra.
