Short Reviews - December 2015

The Bachelor - Well, I hate to say it, but... Chris O'Donnell's clearly no Buster Keaton.

Hellhole - Girl, get me out of this...

Jaws - I the only one who finds similarities between films like Jaws and The Silence of the Lambs?  In this case, the similarity is ... SPOILER ALERT... at some point, the hero finds a severed head in both movies.

Joy - According to the IMDb, Joy is the story of four generations of one family, and the woman who rises to become founder and matriarch of a powerful business dynasty.  In that case, I'm officially calling for someone to use the Sherman Anti-Trust Act to keep David O. Russell from making any more films with Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Lawrence, and Robert De Niro.

The Leisure Class - Haven't seen it yet, but it better be on celluloid film stock, that's all I know...

Lucy - As with Feckless or whatever the hell it's called... Revolver!  That's it.  Anyway, Luc Besson once again tries for greatness disguised as a bad movie.  Yes, it's Animal Kingdom rules among men, we get it.  Lucy's being hunted by cheetahs in her cheetah-print dress.  So ironic.... holy Crap!  He directed it?  Tell me more!

The Revenant - Similar to The Hateful Eight, but slightly different time period.

The Revenant (2009) - Very different from this year's Revenant.

A Royal Night Out - Rupert Everett returns from relative obscurity!

"The Shannara Chronicles" - This time, MTV's finally gone too far.  Too far from their original programming mission.

This Never Happened - ...hmm.  Is this Effie Brown's way of exorcising the demons from her "Project Greenlight" experience?

Two Weeks in Another Town - Sequel to The Bad and the Beautiful?  Kinda!!!
