I'm so sorry for not presenting a proper MOVIE WEEKEND today. I've been so busy, so I'm going to make this post easy and tell you about two movies you should not see. I don't want you to waste your time; however, if you saw these movies and liked them, then
The first movie is called The Last Ride (2012, PG-13, Available on DVD).
It's 1952. A young man is hired to drive a very drunk Hank Williams to a couple of shows. We know how that turns out. Nothing much happens on the way, except a fight or two.
The Last Ride earns The Janie Junebug Seal of Disparagement.
Our second movie is The Words (2012, PG-13, Available on DVD).
Yes, I know that's Bradley Cooper on the cover of the DVD or the movie poster or whatever that is that I
What is this movie about? I'm not sure. This young hottie named Rory (Bradley Cooper) wants to be a writer. It's not working out for him. Then he discovers a manuscript, passes it off as his own, and it's a big success. But the past catches up to Rory when The Old Man (Jeremy Irons) who wrote the book confronts Rory. Meanwhile, we see scenes with Clay Hammond (Dennis Quaid) presenting a reading of a book of his own about Rory stealing The Old Man's words.
If you saw this movie and you understand the plot, then will you please explain it to me? The Words earns The Janie Junebug Terrence Malick Seal of Disapproval because I totally did not understand his film, The Tree of Life.
I promise that next week I'll have movies that are MOVIE WEEKEND DOS. In other words, they'll be worth watching.
Infinities of love,
