Informant!, The (2009) "The Informant!" is a somewhat original film, but ends up suffering from the Hollywood blunder – overdoing the repetition of the second act.  Other issues also keep the film from becoming a terrific movie-going experience. "The Informant!" is based on the true story of the most publicized big business tattletale in US history.  Matt Damon plays Mark Whitacre, a business executive for the ADM corporation, a company that works with corn and lysine.  Whitacre is a biochemist by nature, but dragged into the business side. When Whitacre confronts the management about a mole inside ADM the feds are called in.  A series of unforeseen events begin at this point.  If you can stay tuned, the film will keep throwing curveballs your way.  The problem is, is that after the first few curveballs they being to all look the same and you stop ...

Serious Man, A (2009) "A Serious Man" is the latest from the Coen brothers.  While it may appeal to some people, I failed to find it more than mildly entertaining.  The film is based on the Jewish faith, and as a non-religious man myself, the use of faith as the basis for everything that happens becomes redundant. "A Serious Man" takes place in a 1960s Jewish community.  Professor Larry Gopnik is watching his life unravel right before him.  Therein lies one of my major issues with the film.  The character of Larry does nothing but "watch."  There is no action taken.  There are numerous points in the film in which I sit there going, "Why didn't he do this?" or "That would never happen." Larry is struggling from a son that is always pestering him to fix the dumb antenna on the roof (not a major ...

Cheaper By The Dozen 2 (2005) "Cheaper By The Dozen 2" was released two years after the original remake of the original 1950 comedy from which both of the 2003 and 2005 films are based.  The film defined the film definition of "flop."  It was a payday for the actors and that was it.  While attempts were made, the film fails to explain to audiences why they just paid to see this film.  Don't get me wrong, there are some funny moments in the film, but it is typical comedy sequel that probably should have been straight to video. In the first film we are introduced to Tom and Kate Baker (Steve Martin and Bonnie Hunt).  They have 12 children.  Life is chaotic, but in the end they all are family and stand by one another.  All the original cast members return in the sequel, albeit, some ...

Mel Brooks Collection, The (1970 - 1993) There are few names in the motion picture industry that are highly recognizable by the masses.  For more than 30 years Mel Brooks has been entertaining the world with classic parody films such as “Spaceballs,” “Blazing Saddles” and “History of the World: Part 1.”  And now, MGM/Fox has presented us with the chance to own the nine Mel Brooks masterpieces, and on Blu-ray no less. This will primarily be about the films’ audio and video qualities, however, first a little about each film. (The Twelve Chairs, Blazing Saddles, Young Frankenstein, Silent Movie, High Anxiety, History of the World - Part I, To Be Or Not To Be, Spaceballs, Robin Hood: Men In Tights.) The Twelve Chairs (3/5) After successfully writing for television, Mel Brooks made his first leap into features with “The Producers.”  (This is not included in the Blu-ray collection.)  MGM’s first ...

Extract (2009) “Extract” comes from Mike Judge, the creator of “Office Space.”  So, one might have high hopes for this comedic film.  Alas, those hopes are not dashed but certainly cut.  This film isn’t even in the same league as “Office Space.”  Still, “Extract” offers some laughs, but not much else. Jason Bateman stars in this film as the owner of an extract company, a company that makes different flavored extract like root beer.  His employees are complete incompetent and it is a wonder how he ever got the company off the ground with such ineptitude.  Lack of communication is what drives the force of this film and it is easy to say that it gets old after a while.  Jason’s character doesn’t communicate with his staff or his wife, and vice versa.  The only communication that goes on is between Jason’s character ...
