An exceptionally funny and subtly experimental work of snark, cynicism, and sarcasm, director and co-writer Armando Iannucci’s The Death of Stalin somehow finds a way to make the pain and suffering of millions of people into something worth uneasily laughing at.
Available this week on store shelves: Michael Cera plays a very familiar character in Youth In Revolt; Denzel Washington and Mila Kunis try to survive a barren future in The Book of Eli; and a look at Caddyshack on Blu-ray.
Michael Cera, I may not be an experienced manager, but I think you need to move on.
Hold on though. I have to say that Youth In Revolt was very, very good. Mr. Cera has obviously done this kind of schtick before, but his chance to play the bad boy in this particular movie makes for a pretty entertaining story.
New this week in theatres, Channing Tatum play Amanda Seyfried long-distance lovers in the romantic drama, Dear John; John Travolta and Jonathan Rhys Meyers team up as CIA operatives in the action film, From Paris With Love; and Steve Buscemi stars in the comedy Saint John of Las Vegas.
Happy 2010, everyone, and welcome to a brand new year at the movies. New this week in theatres, Ethan Hawke stars as a remorseful vampire in the action-horror hybrid, Daybreakers. Also in theatres, Michael Cera stars in the adaptation of C. D. Payne’s famed novel, Youth In Revolt; while Amy Adams and Matthew Goode lead the romantic comedy, Leap Year.
