Cinema Misfits, Episode 59: The Campaign, Looper, The Possession, The Odd Life of Timothy Green, and Get the Gringo


6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.

The Campaign.  Da Man pulls the lever for The Campaign, but the rest of the Misfits go “negative” on this political comedy.

Looper.  To be honest, the Misfits are more than a little confused by the whole time travel thing.  Where’s Mr. Peabody when you need him?

The Possession.  A better title might be:  Demon in a Box.

The Odd Life of Timothy Green.  Besides a complete rewrite, maybe what this film needs is a little Miracle Grow.

Get the Gringo.  Forget about Edge of Darkness and The Beaver.  Get the Gringo is Mel Gibson’s comeback film.  The only problem is, nobody knows, because nobody saw it.

Thanks for listening!  We’ll be back in two weeks.

  1. Couldn’t agree more with your review of the Campaign. What a waste of time. One of the worst movements of 21st century film is this idea that you just put a bunch of SNL alumni on screen, don’t bother to write a script and their charm will make for an enjoyable 90 minutes.
    Looper however while not a movie I loved on first viewing is one I would like to see again as I’m not sure I completely understood what happened. If I hadn’t already seen 12 Monkeys it would seem incredibly original, but if you’re going to be derivative I’m grateful you’re derivative with good taste.
