Cinema Misfits Podcast, Episode 91: 22 Jump Street, Jersey Boys, and How to Train Your Dragon 2

ep-91-6n90
6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.

22-Jump-Street
22 Jump Street.  It’s actually more of a comedy about sequels than it is a sequel to a comedy.

Jersey-Boys
Jersey Boys.  If Da Man had his way, the title of this film would be Jersey Boy, or maybe The One Season, or possibly just Frankie Valli.

dragon-2
How to Train Your Dragon 2  Dragons may be creations of fantasy, but the reality is that this sequel holds its own against the original.  Hiccup, Toothless, and the gang are back together, and this is a flight of fantasy you’ll want to take.

Cinema Misfits Podcast, Episode 84: The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, American Hustle, and The Wolf of Wall Street

ep-84-6n90
6 ‘n 90!  Da Man reviews six films in ninety seconds.

Walter-Mitty
The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.  Mitty is an anonymous everyman who uses fantasy as a way to escape from his… important and creatively rewarding job at LIFE magazine?  And his… understanding and supportive mother?  Not to mention his…new girlfriend who thinks he’s terrific?  Wait a minute.  Is this Mitty’s real life or one of his fantasies?

American-Hustle
American Hustle.  It’s less about Abscam than the bad hair decisions made by men in the 70s.  Bale has an elaborate comb over, Cooper sports a self-administered perm, and Renner tops off his head with an impressive pompadour.  It’s a regular rogue’s gallery of unfortunate hairstyles.

Wolf-of-Wall-Street
The Wolf of Wall Street.  Even though Martin Scorsese’s stock soared with Hugo, creatively he now finds himself in a bear market with The Wolf of Wall Street.

My Week with Marilyn.  Forget about one week, judging by this movie, two hours would be too long.

Puss in Boots.  This prequel to Shrek definitely lays an egg–but is it a golden egg or a goose egg?
