The Young and Prodigious T.S. Spivet

I wanted so bad for this movie to be awesome. And don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t awesome at all. There are some great moments, and some great cinematography, and some great acting. There are also a lot of weak moments, strange plot points, and just plain bad acting. Newcomer Kyle Catlett, who played the titular character, was fantastic. The rest of the cast was hit or miss, and, unfortunately, mostly miss. The pace of the movie was all over the place. We’d spend a ton of time on something seemingly unimportant, to quickly fly through a major plot point. It was just a pretty sloppy flim, to me. I do think it’s still a movie worth seeing. There were some really interesting and fun parts, but this thing could’ve been pretty amazing and just missed the mark.

Hurricane of Fun: The Making of Wet Hot

For the most part, this documentary is pretty interesting and fun. It’s really cool to see big stars like Bradley Cooper (a kid fresh out of college) talking about his experience working on his first feature film, and it being such an awesome movie like Wet Hot American Summer. It makes you wish you were a part of this team. They’re having such a great time together. At times things got a little annoying, as I imagine a room full of funny people wanting to constantly be funny would be. But if you’re a fan of Wet Hot, you should check out this doc. It’s only about an hour long, so it won’t take up too much of your time.

Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation

As far as M:I movies go, this is one of them. Just kidding. It’s a fun movie, as fun as any of them, I guess. (Except M:I:III. It easily stands above all the rest.) There are a lot of cliches throughout, but that’s to be expected. There are some really funny parts, and some great action scenes. You know what you’re getting into when you go to one of these movies. You like them, or you don’t. The end.
