Short Reviews - August 2013

This month's theme: disgruntled restaurant workers that soil the food somehow before serving it to customers.  Can't get enough of that!

Clerks 2, Waiting, Fight Club, Road Trip, Casino - okay, so they're not all classics.  Oh, and Beavis and Butt-Head did it as well, serving fried worms to someone instead of fries.

Our Nixon - Hmm!  Interesting IMDb page.  So far it only gives the director's name.  Well, that's Nixon's legacy for you!  Full transparency.

(The) Mortal Instruments (:City of Bones) - I can't take any more of these worldwide bestsellers.

The World's End - No.... Can I not take one more apocalyptic comedy?  Besides!  It's a Pegg/Frost/Wright collaboration!  Way better than that last one... which was also good, I mean...

The Cake Eaters - Mary Stuart Masterson's a director now!!  And she's working with the NEW Mary Stuart Masterson of note Kristen Stewart.

Going the Distance and The Lie - Apparently, these aren't part of the same trilogy or anything, even though Kelli Garner plays a character named Brianna in both.

Grand Hotel - I know it's one of the TCM Essentials and all, but still... I just don't feel German enough to watch this movie.

Bad Grandpa - Ah, I can't remember the last time I laughed out loud at a mere trailer.  Excellent work as always, Jackass guys.
