I have a whole slew of movies to review because I have seen several in the past few weeks, but I as I don’t have the time to get to them all right now, I will just do a couple.
Black Snake Moan was a lot of fun. When I gave it a preview review I expected it to be fun but was cautious that it might be a letdown. As it turns out, BSM lived up to the billing. The premise itself was so strange that it was instantly intriguing. The acting by Samuel L. Jackson, Christina Ricci, and yes, even Justin Timberlake was top notch.
How can you not like a movie about an old black blues man that chains up a sex-crazed white girl to break her wickedness?
RATING 8 out of 10
Firehouse Dog is a fun little family film shot in the Disney style. The premise is silly, the situations are over-the-top, but the warm fuzzies come in abundance. If you are a dog lover then you will enjoy the heck out of this film. If you have kids, they will love this film. If you are a diehard cinephile looking for Citizen Kane… keep walking. Being a fan of warm fuzzies – both the four-legged and the heartfelt kind – I really like it.
I thought there was a bit too much toilet humor and although I am a huge fan of a well-placed fart, I don’t think Firehouse Dog needed so many. One very nice touch was alongside the credits they ran pictures of the dogs owned by the cast and crew.
