Triumph of meanness

  • Warrior, 2011

    Movie with high rating, but actually it is hollow and smelly as rotten tomato.

    Long story short, we have two brothers and their ex drunk farther who had usually to capitalism issues in the past. Drunk farther properly cared for their children, so do not care about education, and saw their future as fighters in entertainment fights.

    Fast forward to future and we see same brothers who become older but got same little brains. One is waiting foreclosure notice as he wanted big home and bankers did not tell them all details of his loan and modifications in advance. Being "smart" guy, instead of fighting capitalist who did it, he decides to get some money in capitalist sponsored entertainment fight, again.

    Other brother is completely different story, he got into imperialists invasion into Iraq... to get money. Got his unit and his new friend killed by... friendly fire, after this being mad at himself he damaged US tank accidently saving people lifes, and after this went dark. Like secret agent he got back into US under different identity and started hunting capitalists who sent him to this war, wait, err, nope, he just go drunk, beat people and his only dream was to get big money to send them to his friend widow, because widow did not get any compensation from capitalists. Most importantly, by participating in tournament he want to rip off Wall Street capitalist who makes it, do not ask me how.

    Two brothers are quite a pair as easy to understand. To solve all their problems they beat the hell out of cardboard fighters we do not are about. And finally they join to beat capitalist who made this tournament, err, wait, nope. They actually almost kill each other for this money to big entertainment of all capitalists. But almost, so with titles we still have high hope that capitalists and all stupid dudes will have good chance to see same show again in the future.

  • Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

    Another hollow movie without normal story and script, just some pretty pictures and CGI. All characters are, as usual, cardboard figures playing some hard to understand role in big budget disaster.

    More interesting is to understand amazing popularity of the book that is source (it is not accurate adaptation). As book is actually 25th variation of Harry Potter style child books. So, why they are so popular in capitalist countries? All of them have in common - some distant fairy tale place, some unusual children (main characters are also special), with some superpowers and some 17th-19th century style teaching and relations, usually also some horrible illogical villains are included and some magically won fight where few characters are always outnumbered and weak. All this is necessary elements of capitalists fairy tale for children. You are special, you can do anything without any materialistic foundation and knowledge, all current problems and horrors can be overcome by going to fairy place, do not go with society to fight your major real problems, keep it up with your friends and relatives, using magic you can always win, and if not win - loose not much. So, where is not such thing as independent press, including children one.

  • The Magnificent Seven

    This time studios don't want any risk, so they get some old remake of good film and make another remake. But this time they made sure to throw out all logic and reasons and replace it with horrible action scenes and same special effects.

    You need some completely utterly nuts capitalist, of course. Not usual one, no. Nut capitalist must not just exploit people he has, nope. He likes to shoot any people he see, at random, he also burns church while being in bad mood (place made by capitalists and one of main stands of their prosperity). He'll die painfully, in the end, of course, except this he has no purpose.
    You need six idiots who come to die for no reason provided, at least one had reason, but not told till the end. And you need bunch of people and few wooden houses to be killed and destroyed correspondingly.

    Now all is in place and real capitalists are getting your money for tickets and views of this utter garbage.
    They stole your money and your time, much worse crime compared to all you see in film.

  • Spectral

    As usual US is spreading democracy, with all same results, this time they bomb the hell out of Moldova. Funniest thing that whole film we won't see even one of their opponents. All we see is some abnormal ghosts that are... secret weapon of horrible regime. All the people on screen are just cardboard figures and all you really wish for them is to die faster. Especially this sick genius who made all and everything US army uses alone, in his spare time, with his bare hands and circular saw. Whole script, logic and attempts to somehow bring science words to this mess are horrible.

    It is not even 3rd rate film, it is something far far below.

  • Hell or High Water

    Another movie about two horribly stupid criminal idiots. Only good in all this is it seems that 50% of all income went to promotion and PR. All else is utterly bad - script is just awful and illogical, acting is bad, music is even worse.

    Whole film experience can be described in one picture:

    image

    It is rotten creaky almost non working mill.

  • Jason Bourne

    Big PR, big marketing money and actual result that is more appropriate for some heavy drug users young virgins crew of five 17 year olds.

  • Infiltrator

    Fairy tale on how brave US guys organized and later "uncovered" drug finance scheme being inside larger drug traffic scheme made by .. another official US guys. But, of course, all is shown differently.
    Movie also try to show you how not so bad guys are this big criminals.

  • Sausage Party

    Imagine authors of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs who got their dose of bath salt and multiplied it by ten.

  • Under Suspicion, 1991

    Again criminals and police. Again only interest is someone's money. Lot of parasites fight for money, love for money.

  • The Shallows

    One woman, one pretty seagull, and one always hungry shark eating everything including steel.
    If you are bored and want to kill some time, it'll do, otherwise it is... shallow.

  • Bastille Day

    Better version of Triple 9. Now stupid guys are robbing crypto currency from gold vault. I am serious. From time to time someone shoots, someone drive cars. All other time was spent on dialogs produced by 4 year old sun of director.

  • Triple 9

    Criminals again. Now lots of idiots robbing things and getting killed. Avoid like plague.

  • A History of Violence, 2005

    Film about crime and criminals. Due to some overacting and few cheap tricks it wants to look important, look something more. But it is not.

  • The Man Who Knew Infinity, 2015

    Film about quite unusual and talented Indian mathematician. As usual I suggest to check some real story http://blog.stephenwolfram.com/2016/04/who-was-ramanujan/ as film is adapted with added non existing dramas, constantly bringing up god while ignoring many core subjects. Big issue is full miscast on main role as Dev Patel replays his role in Slumdog Millionaire and fit poorly in all the story despite trying really hard.
    Script is also of quite poor quality for such film.

  • Sicario, 2015

    Highly prized shitty film. As you know, now to get some reward you do not need to make some good scenery and shoot good film. Instead you can just buy some reviews, get some other via connections and instead of film make horrible sunset landscape moving slideshow with some drone shots in between. And why you need here female in leading role who have zero purpose and is overacting like cheap theater actress, I have no idea.

  • Les Visiteurs : La Révolution

    One of the worst sequels ever made (it is 3rd film in series, with two being good fun things, but with big pause).
    Absolutely horrible script and execution.

  • The Bronze

    Fun thing is that it is not bad film. Until you hate curse words or await children comedy. Scenery is written by leading actress for herself and it shows :-) Film has certain style and worth to watch.

    And it has sex scene, so you could wax your carrot at least.

  • Flaskepost fra P

    Film about idiots. Idiots in police, religions idiots and one idiot with scissors also related to religion.
    So, boys and girls, stay away from capitalists police, religion and idiots, it is time to start reading Lenin's works.

  • The Nice Guys

    Bad non dark non comedy. Big money went to cars, some action and lots of drugs for writer and director.

  • The Legend of Barney Thomson

    Good dark comedy made intentionally meaningless. Some dialogs really deliver.

    It is also recommended to watch Saving Mr. Banks right after this, as contrast shower.

  • Hardcore Henry, 2015

    Fully and absolutely meaningless fps shooter like film shot on gopros. Some of parts are properly planned and remind you of good first person games, but overall it is big waste of time.

  • The Road Within, 2014

    Three real nutcases go to sea. This is all story in single sentence.
    All else is from kind of "look how they managed to swear", "look how we must feel compassion", etc
    Not bad, but completely meaningless film.

  • Terrordactyl

    Now we have company to Zombievers.

  • 10 Cloverfield Lane

    Real pinnacle of meaningless stuff.
    Authors had been in full blown depression while writing and shooting this stuff, but luckily (for them, not us!) they found pile of good, really powerful drugs. And it shows.

  • The Road, 2009

    The Night is Dark and Full of Terrors. Not from this, but fit.

    Real triumph of idealism and individualism. Mix and match of all fears of developed countries middle class.
    Emotions instead of logic, crime instead of work, god instead of science.
