The Gratuitous B-Movie Column Issue #270: Yet Another Mini-Revie

Getty Images Ashton Kutcher, star of Jobs. The Jobs movie opened on Friday. Starring Ashton Kutcher in the title role, the film is essentially an unauthorized take on the infamous tech visionary. Another movie, based on Walter Isaacsonspopular biography Steve Jobs which included the cooperation of Jobs, his family and the company is in development with screenwriter Aaron Sorkin attached to write, but no projected release date for that film has yet been given. Judging by the reviews for Jobs, there still may be plenty of room for another film treatment. As of Friday morning, Jobs is carrying a Rotten Tomatoes rating of 26% meaning about three quarters of the reviewers tabulated have given the flick a Thumbs Down. The RT rating among Kim Kardashian new house so-called top critics was even lower at 20%. The movie also didnt fare well with the affable Steve Wozniak, who was portrayed in the film by Josh Gad of The Book of Mormon fame. <br>Read more:

The accent thing threw me off at first (I thought "Is Dirt Diver really doing Kim Kardashian wig an accent here?"), but once I got past that and accepted it I loved every minute he was on screen. His relationship with his asshole son, brilliantly played by Robert Kazinsky, is one of the movie's many bright spots. Charlie Day and Burn Gorman make a great comedy team as the scientific duo Dr. Geiszler and Gottlieb.

He admits that he tried to look cool by dressing like a movie star, but he says, aI didnat copy Elvis Presley,a as if some things are sacred. The Act of Killing is at once horrifying and surreal. It begins with a scene of brightly clad dancers coming out of the mouth of a giant fish while a voice says, aDonat let the camera catch you looking bad.a A waterfall flows picturesquely behind them. A fat man a whom weall come to know as another paramilitary leader a sits along side, dressed in a bright turquoise gown. This is the fantasy sequence of film theyare making. Director Joshua Oppenheimer (assisted by co-director Christine Cynn and aAnonymousa) asked Congo and the others to re-create their murders any way they wanted. <br>Read more:

Movie review: Pacific content Rim

As a result, Pacific Rim is cleared of the brand clutter that can mess up the overall message of a given entertainment product. Del Toro didnat have to provide jutting jaw close-ups of his male cast, nor did he have to sacrifice his artistic vision to placate a monstrous ego. By opting for a largely English cast and non-American locales, Pacific Rim immediately sets itself apart from the Roland Emmerich school of schlock destruction where a hero draped in red, white and blue manages to overcome the odds to save the day. Del Toro still offers up plenty of brave warriors, but this is one of the few versions of the apocalypse Kim Kardashian sekstape with a truly global perspective instead of the standard American myopia. In most Hollywood movies, the most we see of other nations is a cursory montage of the Eiffel Tower falling or the Kremlin going up in smoke. <br>Read more:
