Overly scripted on the the meeting of the father? Kyle Chandler had less than 10 minutes total screen time ... and it was a reveal.
The killers depicted in the film are considered heroes in Indonesia. Impunity persists in Indonesia for these crimes and for later ones committed by Indonesia's armed forces from the invasion and occupation of East Timor and to ongoing violations in West Papua. Human rights groups are supporting an appeal from survivors for the Indonesian government to acknowledge the truth about the 1965 crimes and to apologize and provide reparations to the victims and their families.

So, every comedic star EVER is partying at James Franco's house. Suddenly, a giant pit full of magma opens in the backyard, emitting hell-spawn. No, it's not DOOM 5. It's "This is the End." I frankly can't conceive of how it was made, because every single member of the cast is an A-List celebrity. My best guess is that they weren't in it primarily for the money, as they all seem to be having an absolute BLAST! Which is the biggest reason why this film works so well-- It's obviously not forced. It's like watching all your favorite stars at play.
This movie is tied with "We're the Millers" as my favorite comedy. 5/5
I'd have to totally disagree with this article. Al Hoff says, "No news here: This sequel is just as unfunny and puerile as its predecessor." Incorrect! Actually, it should win a Grammy. Somehow, it's even worse. 0/5
I was one of the (apparently surprisingly few) people who really enjoyed this movie. While the poop and fart jokes DID detract, they were thankfully few-and-far-between, actually. I particularly enjoyed how there's an entirely NEW baddie group, a la the Batman or Spiderman movies. It WAS aimed more at children this time, which accounts for the poop, farts, boogers, etc. that most people (myself included) could've done without, but for every roll-of-the-eyes there were 4 or more laughs, and 80% is a B or solid C. 4/5
This review by Al Hoff pretty much says everything that I was planning on saying. A GENEROUS 1.5/5.
Just saw "We're the Millers." Easily the funniest comedy since "Superbad." The main thing of note is, despite what every review that I've read has said, it's not all that "extreme" or "vulgar." I went with a friend rather than Mom because of how "over-the-top" it was supposed to be. If you read the ratings factor under the "R" it goes on for 4 or 5 lines. That gives a TOTAL misconception. I think that what got censors so up-in-arms was that it was MALE nudity, so let's scare off as many prospective moviegoers as possible. It's just a funny scene that, if taken out, would kill one of the best jokes of the movie. Easily 5/5.
I attended with a not-so-picky partner, who's happy with most any action or superhero film. Even NSP partner found the movie lacking. Me, who likes something with plot and characterization and who stupidly purchased a ticket on the hopes that something touted on NPR might be good, disliked it. Since we were in the last row, I read my email, wrote responses during movie, so it was not 100% wasted time.
Meh, I agree with this review. I kept yawning. They could've cut out about 45 minutes and it would've been better. Go see Star Trek or the man of IRON instead!
Don't listen to reviewers - go to this movie! It is very well done with the exception that the fight scenes are too long. IT IS WORTH THE PRICE OF ADMISSION!
Henry Cavill plays Superman to perfection.
i am so there
eek -- you are right, of course. He is alive. I'll amend the text. thanks for pointing it out!
I don't think Hayao Miyazaki is dead (you called him "the late")
Yes the first act is the strongest but this is a film that shines it's entire length. Ryan Gosling stands out even in the scenes he's not in and the writing,score and the way it's film convege with the story to create a moving work of art.
I m done with your paper The Place Beyond The Pines is an American masterpiece
On the Road unreadable? Kloman probably wanted more parentheses. At least Ginsburg turned out OK.
Kloman, You should probably be a little more considerate and respectful of the movie's source material. The book is neither "unreadable," nor will we "waste time" reading this work that is generally considered a gateway to a new style of literature as well as a new reality for many. Who are you to disagree, you ask. Who are you to proffer an opinion at all. And nice us of Wikipedia. Simply ridiculous, City Paper.
Finished watching a well-thoughtful plot, "jumbled," activism movie, Promised Land," today, 4th, Friday. I very much liked the movies' message on "fracking," the possible affects on environmental contamination of well- water/land pollution consequences! Promised Land vs Marcella Shell "reveal," illustrates a environmental issue/solution facing a war-torn nation trying to resolve an internal energy crisis in "real time, the year 2012," ;majority of Pennsylvania citizens live in economic hardship, hunger, poverty, and yes, unemployment,too. The movie reflects on the issues related to Marcella shell liquid chemicals being crudely used to extract natural gas, among the wasted clean water, pollution and contamination by carcinogens (radioactive particles) that can not be ever cured out of biodiversity in our lifetime..anyway.... state of Pennsylvania, Time upon a once a watched a Likeable change in the play " New York Minute," the director tweaked this play... got the message out on a disease in 1992; the death-causing diesease promoted the director to help in AIDS Awareness; Directors have an edge for updating the public; Pennsylvania Promised Second, for fortune is an imbalanced way of benefiting from this type of mining when you can incur water pollution that affects your health and your neighbors' health,too. So anyone benefiting from a scheme to hurt the fresh water... will pay heavy fines...now, that everyone has more monies from the profiteers, the fines for causing water pollution will put many people into court, and fined accordingly...lethal water pollution is serious..and it takes money to fix a leaky faucet as well as irretrievable land and water damage. thanks Gus for making the movie relevant to an important issue on helping to save clean water and protecting a fragile Eco-system that we all live in... .. www.cleanwateraction.org
Totally disagree - it was hysterical!
This kind of crap is the equivalent of the ubiquitous North Korean propaganda vilifying the United States military. Judging by what we use as "entertainment", maybe they have a case. With all the political ads we just had attacking China, Brazil, Colombia, South Korea, I guess the time is ripe for some pretend war-mongering.
