Jack Black is attempting a serious role?! About time.
It’s Wednesday! Films exist! We’re all poor! You know someone on Orange? You know someone on Orange! We take some time out of our busy schedules (looking at Wyld Stallyns t-shirts on PriceDrop TV) to discuss what you should and shouldn’t see on this, this Wednesday, this holy night. Please do join in.
When will Jack Black stop playing lovable slackers who inexplicably bust out at least one musical number per film? Gulliver’s Travels is pretty much exactly what you’re expecting it to be – adequate, and absolutely nothing more. Excellent visual effects and some well-crafted supporting performances save it from total failure, but all this film really manages is to remind you that in Hollywood, as in Lilliput, bigger isn’t always better.
Everybody knows Christmas is a time for cinema, but this year there aren’t many fresh festive treats being served up. So in the spirit of charity and knowing what it’s like not to want to talk to your family, we’ve scoured the charts for December and found the films most likely to placate your clan for most of the festive season. Did someone say ‘eye-popping CGI and childish plotlines’?
