The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (2013) – Review

4 Stars

Ben Stiller proves himself an extremely talented force behind the camera, and never before has he been so appealing as an actor. The Secret Life of Walter Mitty is a tour de force, a fantastic film with a dynamite cast, subtle humor and amusing riffs on action-films and advertising. This updated retelling of the 1955 film was originally to star the rubber-faced Jim Carrey, when that fell through Stiller picked up the project and it’s hard to imagine anyone else inhabiting the character or directing the film, it’s that special.

Next of Kin (1989) – Review

2 Stars

Next of Kin has the feel of a forgotten Steven Seagal picture. It has all the usual motifs that accompany the WB/Seagal pairings from that era, a cop with revenge on his mind, a loner working on the force but treated as an outsider due to his beliefs, and the presence of the mafia. However, Next of Kin stars Patrick Swayze, who sports the Seagal-like ponytail, as Tucker Gates, a hill-billy turned Chicago detective. When his younger brother (Bill Paxton), is murdered, Tucker’s older brother, Briar (Liam Neeson), arrives from back home to carry out revenge Kentucky-style. Swayze is caught in the middle between upholding society’s law and siding with his family.

Neighborhood Watch Teaser Trailer – No Aliens Yet

Neighborhood Watch is probably the most strangest plot for a film with this cast that’s come out in awhile. It’s almost a mismatch. Ben Stiller, Jonah Hill, Vince Vaughn and Richard Ayoade (from the BBC’s The IT Crowd) play four suburban guys who come together to form a neighborhood watch group, but only as an excuse to escape their humdrum lives one night a week. Sounds like we’ve got a funny premise there, but then it takes a turn for the weird when they accidentally discover that their town has become overrun with aliens posing as ordinary suburbanites, they have no choice but to save their neighborhood — and the world — from total extermination. It almost seems like too much. Regardless this teaser trailer shows us absolutely nothing about the film except for the logo and jackets of their neighborhood watch group. Check it out below and let us know what you think.

Top 5 Best Jennifer Aniston Movies

Jennifer Aniston rose to superstardom from her role as Rachel on the long running and much beloved television show Friends. Her cinema career has been mixed. Trying to launch herself as a feature star ended in a string of failures, but soon Aniston found her stride taking indie-type flicks, smaller roles and playing opposite of established movie stars. She’s had a part in 23 movies that have gone on to gross over $1.2 billion domestically. Her latest film, Wanderlust, opens in theaters everywhere Friday February 24, 2012. Because of her smaller roles it is difficult to say that all 23 of those films are Jennifer Aniston movies, thus here’s a few runner-ups that were left off this list because of a smaller role – She’s the One, Office Space, He’s Just Not That Into You, Marley and Me and Horrible Bosses. Enjoy this list of the top five best Jennifer Aniston movies. Author discretion is the final criteria used to distinguish these best Jennifer Aniston films.

Leprechaun (1993)

Box Office Gross: $8,556,940     Adjusted: $0

Jennifer Aniston made her film debut in this horror story about a psychotic, six-centuries-old leprechaun on a murder spree throughout North Dakota. This low-budget horror flick is one of my favorite guilty pleasure movies.
