Supremacy Review – Behold the White Trash!

 Hollywood  Comments Off on Supremacy Review – Behold the White Trash!
Apr 262015
 

White trash ruined America, just as it laid waste to many corners of the world. Now don’t you bonobos get me wrong! Blacks and Browns ain’t no Mother Teresas (Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu? an Albanian White c**t in reality, if you believe Christopher Hitchens). Pol Pot and his followers in Cambodia, Narendra Modi and his cow-ca-cola swilling Hindu vanar sena in India, the Madaras indoctrinated brain-dead Islamic Jihadist nuts of Terroristan (Pakistan), and Prabhakaran and his Tamil gangsters and child monster soldiers are merely a microcosm of the ugly face of Brown trash. Black genocidal wrath against Blacks in Rwanda is […]

Night Train to Lisbon – Worth the Trip

It was the title that spurred me to pick up Night Train to Lisbon (2013) at my local library. Not for me Iron Man 3, Kuch Kuch Hota Hain, Chennai Express, Terminator 27, Dabbang 25 or Avengers 65. No, no, no, can’t take that drivel no more! Night Train to Lisbon promised adventure, thrill and more than a hint of intrigue. Danish director Bille August directed the film based on Pascal Mercier’s eponymous novel. Problem with Indian Films The main reason I gravitate toward non-Indian films like Night Train to Lisbon is that most of our movies are set on […]

Furious 7 – Garbage 100

 Hollywood  Comments Off on Furious 7 – Garbage 100
Apr 032015
 

Me Bad! Me Terribly, Furiously Bad! Here I was smug in the fantasy that the trashiest films in the Milky Way came from my familiar precincts of Tollywood, Bollywood and Kollywood. Boy did I get disabused of my illusions today! All illusions shattered in the Walpurgis Night of Furious 7, amigos! Utter Garbage Imagine my revulsion upon encountering Furious 7 – Ceaseless, relentless fusillade of garbage hitting me square on the face. Cars leaping up from the ground (I swear on Allah) to destroy helicopters in the air. Cars leaping down in reverse from airplanes (I swear on Jesus) to […]

Kingsman - Unsatisfying Despite Colin

Are we going to stand here all day? Or are we going to fight? – Harry Hart (Colin Firth) in a pub at the beginning & Eggsy (Taron Egerton) in a pub at the end A valiant, heroic effort from Colin Firth can’t stop Kingsman – The Secret Service from turning into the proverbial Apples of Sodom. At least to these ol’ brown eyes! Firth never fails to send my pulse zipping and the British acting legend of King’s Speech and Railway Man fame does so here too in an uncharacteristic role, for him. The other screen-fillers (mainly Samuel Jackson, […]

Nightcrawler Review – Electric Night Thriller

 General, Hollywood  Comments Off on Nightcrawler Review – Electric Night Thriller

Think of our newscast as a screaming woman running down the street with her throat cut. – TV station News director Nina (Rene Russo) to Louis Bloom (Jake Gyllenhaal) in Nightcrawler Don’t you dare count me among the surprised when Jake Gyllenhaal has his hands full with trophies during the coming awards season for a superb performance in Nightcrawler. I’ve seen a whole bunch of Gyllenhaal films including the Oscar winning Brokeback Mountain (where our man played a gay cowboy and for which he got the Best Supporting Actor nomination) but I think Nightcrawler is his best performance in a […]

John Wick Review – Delightful Garbage

 Hollywood  Comments Off on John Wick Review – Delightful Garbage

It’s not what you did, son. It’s who you did it to. – Russian mob chief Viggo Tarasov to son Joseph in John Wick. What’s common to Bollywood and Hollywood garbage? Ha ha ha, elementary my dear kiddo. Both have a strong Indian connection. While the details of Indian connections to Bollywood garbage are no secret, few know of the Indian links to Hollywood junk. Hollywood’s latest piece of garbage John Wick is co-produced by Raj Singh, a Silicon Valley millionaire of Indian origin who’s lately been pouring money into several English films. I don’t know about you but it […]
