Kill the Irishman

Kill the Irishman is a so-so movie, but I'd still recommend it. It helps that this movie isn't trying too hard to be Goodfellas-lite, it even comes off that writer/director Jonathan Hensleigh said, "well we can't remake Goodfellas, so let me draw some inspiration from it and then do my own thing." Don't get me wrong, the critic in me wants to be a little upset that such powerful material wasn't made into an "A" film, but because of its escapist nature and the amount of fun you'll have watching it, it doesn't really matter if this is a "B" movie (after all, escapism and fun are what makes B-movies so beloved). I should add that I'm the kind of viewer who can also shrug off clearly choreographed themes and symbolism. I look at is a failed effort to dance around the literal, I don't get angry at filmmakers trying to at least have made an effort.

My other thoughts on the film are pretty short...

1. I don't want to delve too much into the premise because a lot of story will have you going "did that really happen?" and aside from some of that hokey religious symbolism stuff I just mentioned, the answer will usually be "yes." So yeah, avoid Wikipedia and Google searches.

2. Kudos to the casting director for the largest amount of character actors I've ever seen assembled- Linda Cardellini, Tony Darrow, Robert Davi, Vincent D'Onofrio, Fionnula Flanagan, Bob Gunton, Jason Butler Harner, Vinnie Jones, Val Kilmer, Tony Lo Bianco, Laura Ramsey, Steven R. Schirripa, Paul Sorvino, Mike Starr, Marcus Thomas, and it wouldn't be complete without Christopher Walken.

3. My final note, thank you god for giving Ray Stevenson his first piece of juicy legitimate acting since Rome. The guy is massively talented.

My Favorite... Books?!

Yes, I know the name of this blog is "Movies," but I've talked about television and lately I've been in a very literary mood, so I decided to share with everyone a list of my 30 favorite books from the past 30 years. I figured it'd be easier to look at the recent classics as opposed to trying to encompass all of literary history (and I include The Bible, Shakespeare, and other stuff as a part of that list) and I'm also leaving the list unranked as it's a bitch to put them in an order I'm pleased with. I should also add that this list is very adaptation heavy (as in a lot of these have been adapted into films), but films/TV are my forte so I suppose it's actually suiting that these are my favorites (whether I saw the film or read the book first doesn't really matter as each stands on their own). So here it is (with the plot synopsis taken from sites like Wikipedia)...

It has been a while since I've seen such a visually stunning style wasted on such a piss-poor story. In fact, the only reason I say "a while" is because I can't think of the last time I sat in awe of such a well-presented concept that is ruined through a mind-boggingly poor execution. I feel bad because this is the first movie by Neil Burger (The Illusionist, The Lucky Ones) that I genuinely disliked. The premise is actually very interesting. A writer (Bradley Cooper) takes a pill that allows him to access 100% of his brain's capacity. The drug helps him repair his relationship with his ex-girlfriend (Abbie Cornish) and leads him to Wall Street where he gains the notice of a big-shot corporate guy (Robert De Niro). Yet things get complicated and the pill's side effects begin to take a disastrous toll on its users.

Cooper can carry a movie. As much as I disliked the final product, he shows promise as a lead compared to his fantastic ensemble efforts in The Hangover and The A-Team. A problem is that a lot of the film is told through narration and Cooper doesn't necessarily have one of those voices that lends itself to voice-over. The whole cast (Cooper, Cornish, De Niro, Anna Friel, Johnny Whitworth) don't do a bad job, they just have the unfortunate pleasure of being part of such a poorly structured story. The movie moves too fast at times (even for one that is meant to skip around) and the scenes just get more ridiculous whether its the opening passive break-up or the vampirism-inspired finale. The audience I was with (and myself included) were laughing at moments that were meant to be deadly serious. The cinematography, editing, and score all led me to believe this was a serious movie and they convey the mood better than the storyline does.

By the way, kudos to the technicians who worked on this film because it seems they actually used brain power (excuse the lame pun) to come up with some very inventive moments, visually speaking (so some credit goes to Burger for his ambitious vision). The writer avoided any emotive moments so I can hardly blame the actors for falling flat when it's so clear that this story is doomed from the beginning. Speaking of the story, what exactly was the moral? By the time the end of the film comes around, the message of this movie is barely decipherable, especially as we see that Eddie Morra is one of the most selfish protagonists to ever waste my time and money.

Win Win

(Note: I saw an advance screening of the film. It comes out in limited release on 3/18.)

Thomas McCarthy has made his writing-directing career by taking ordinary folks that get in over their heads and need someone else from a different world to help them out. The result has led to memorable lead performances from Peter Dinklage in The Station Agent and Richard Jenkins in The Visitor. Win Win and its performance by Paul Giamatti is no exception. Yet, as this is McCarthy's first so-so film, I should remind anyone who reads this that a so-so movie from a guy like McCarthy is usually a damn good movie compared to usual mediocre stuff that sees a theatrical releases. Like McCarthy's other films, Win Win is feels very realistic and I'd even say in this case, very humane.

The movie has an interesting premise, so stick with me for a minute. The film follows a lawyer, Giamatti as Mike Flaherty, who also works as the wrestling coach at his local high school to make money on the side. He's married to a wonderful wife (Amy Ryan) who he has two kids with and is surrounded by two trustworthy friends- his assistant coach and fellow lawyer (Jeffrey Tambor) and a former high school buddy (Bobby Cannavale) who (if I remember correctly) works in real estate. Through a series of circumstances, Mike gets to know his dementia-ridden client (Burt Young) who is suddenly visited by his grandson, Kyle (newcomer Alex Shaffer), who is trying to get away from his drug-addicted mother (Melanie Lynskey, whose character is represented by a lawyer played Margo Martindale who is currently playing the villain on this season of FX's Justified). It turns out, Kyle is good at wrestling and joins Mike's team, and I'll stop summarizing the film from there as the film actually has a number of sub-plots going on, but that should give you a taste as I mainly want to get across how impressive the cast is.

I don't think I have to say anything about Giamatti as an actor, he is almost always at the top of his game. Unfortunately, a lot of the movie needs to be carried by Kyle and there is only so much Shaffer can do with this monotone character. I mean, Shaffer plays it well, but this character and even this story, struggles to keep one interested for the full ninety minutes. It's a shame because Shaffer shows promise and he holds his own with the other actors (he reminded me of Keir Gilchrist from last year's It's Kind of a Funny Story). The film has a lot of heart, just not anything unique to make me want to invest myself in the story. That being said, and as I mentioned before, McCarthy's effort isn't to be completely disregarded. He has such a great handle on characterization and the way he must direct his actors to get such great performances- I'll still always be excited whenever he has a new film coming out.

Battle: Los Angeles

I became interested in Battle: Los Angeles for several reasons. Director Jonathan Liebesman (The Killing Room) and writer Christopher Bertolini (The General's Daughter) both described the film as Ridley Scott's Black Hawk Down meets Neill Blomkamp's District 9, those being two of my all-time favorite movies. I said "there was no way they could accomplish something that would even look like that." Then came the well-edited teaser and theatrical trailers. I quickly changed my mind about the film as being just a 'pre-summer blockbuster', since my reaction was, "oh, that looks just like Black Hawk Down meets District 9." The trailers made the film look like it would have action-style of Scott's film mixed with the the emotionally wrenching nature of Blomkamp's. Well, the final product sure as hell attempts to have those qualities and although it hits below the mark its creators set for it, it's still not too shabby of a film.

For those who aren't aware, the film (obviously set in Los Angeles, California) follows Michael Nantz (Aaron Eckhart), a United States marine who is second-in-command of a unit that is placed on the front-lines against an alien invasion. The film takes on the style of grainy images with shaky camera-work. Now, I don't have a problem with that, but it does make me wonder if we'll continue to see such fast-paced editing and cinematography used in mainstream American films and whether or not we'll return to sequences that look more staged.

The film's problems... are numerous. Overall, the characterization is very impersonal. A lot of the actors (Michelle Rodriguez, Bridget Moynahan, Michael Pena, Lucas Till, Ne-Yo, Aisha Tyler, Noel Fisher, Ramon Rodriguez, and others) all try to put on their best game-faces, but they don't do as good a job as Eckhart (and let me go over his phenomenal acting filmography just to remind you how awesome he is- In the Company of Men, Any Given Sunday, Erin Brockovich, Nurse Betty, The Pledge, The Missing, Thank You for Smoking, Towelhead, The Dark Knight, and Rabbit Hole). Even then, there is one scene that is just not that well-written where Nantz recites the names of these marines he let down (the most significant character development in this movie is represented here). The scene unfortunately falls flat, but that's okay, as there are about five other "let me inspire my troops to have faith in me scenes" in the entire film.

Another problem is that both the protagonists and the antagonists aren't that unique. The marines can be told apart by their accents and a few quirks here and there, but the enemy is poorly characterized compared to the Mogadishu villains from Black Hawk Down and the South African government officials in District 9. It also took my eyes a while to get adjusted to the aesthetic of the film. Not to say the special effects varied, but there would be a ton of shots inside a helicopter that look cheap and then we'd go outside to something that is halfway between a matte and a real environment. The action becomes repetitive after a while and the script is full of cliched jargon and dialogue.

So with all of this negative talk, why did I say I enjoyed it? Simply put, the film makes up for its shortcomings with its grand scale. The film takes you through quite an adrenaline ride and the tone that runs throughout the film just keeps you interested (it helps that Brian Tyler did the score, he kicks ass week-in and week-out on the action-procedural remake of Hawaii Five-0 currently on CBS). The movie is full of excitement and it doesn't let up for a second. I'd compare it to recent films from the past two years like Joe Carnhan's The A-Team and Tony Scott's The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, as in that critics are making them out to be a lot worse than they actually are. Yes, the film doesn't live up to its potential, but when all of the elements of the story have already been well-explored in other films, the filmmakers at least make up for that with some fun escapism.

My Favorite Asian Films

So I decided to get as much into modern Asian cinema as I could, watching as many different films from as many different directors as I could. I'm going to continue my East Asian Directors marathon, but I've seen most of the films already and I'll just be using the marathon to comment on the films themselves. School of course takes up a lot of my time so it might be a while before that, but here are the 41 Asian films that I liked (with varying degrees) from the years 2000-2010 in alphabetical order.
