would have worked better as a shortz
there's some scientists off on safari in search of giant wasps -cue endless trudging with all the heavy lifting done by porters ( there is one shot of a white guy trudging behind the porters with a whip! these guys are being paid arent they? or is this guy gonna tame some lions?) anyway there is also a woman who spends an ungodly amount of time pressing herself against the lead dude for comfort...which after a time I found quite amusing. but really its terribly boring...simply put - not enough wasps
I'm giving it half a star for the pith helmets
so it seems a cia dude loses his daughter in some school shooting and wants to get the 2nd amendment repealed? or maybe to keep it? anyway he and his cohorts are going to need those guns as ryan phillipe is going to get in their way...big time
a star for being as dumb as fuck
a star for the scene where the head baddie has to tell everyone how bad bad-ass ryan actually is ( nod to seagal )
and a half a star for the kick-ass theatre major
mixed feelings on this one
first ( and obviously worth a star ) is the glorious colour of the children's hair
second -there is sarah snook ( give that woman more to do!) and now after googling her I find she's going to be in a new adaptation of Persuasion - heaven! automatic 2 stars for the giddy anticipation
and then there is the rest. a bit too close to the bone for me. and the all is forgiven ending...maybe…
now I'm just rebingeing all the chess bits where she wipes the board with her opponent -and the bit at the very end with the old men -and the bits where she dances...and when she swishes round in fabulous clothes... and all the rest...
1 for Anya
1 for her eyes
1 for sexing up chess
1 for her bff -tho I'd liked to have seen more of her
and 1 for the sheer enjoyment of watching a woman genius for a bleedin' change
There's a pouty Val Kilmer
There's extreme suspension of disbelief required as Tom Sizemore has multiple PhDs!
There's Benjamin Bratty
There's Terence Stamp finding god
There's Carrie-Anne Moss taking a shower, being ogled by Val, having to strip off to a tight white singlet for a nipple shot...etc etc
there is not a moment that is unpredictable
and there's iwatch laughing a few times, groaning, yawning and turning it off with just 10 mins to go...
rather enjoyed this - just wanted to give a shout out to Burn Gorman - I know I know - he always plays a period baddie but he's so good at them and he has such a wonderful name
so a star for Burn
and one for the charming Milly
and one for Henry's curls
and a half for the possibility of blowing up some lords...
food match - victoria sponge cake and earl grey tea
