Nightcrawler

Nightcrawler:  Gyllenhall looking like a month long coke binge helps being fantastically manic.

You have Jackass crazy with Johnny Knoxville and Steve-O kicking each other in the dick repeatedly. You have Beyonce's “Crazy in Love” and there's Gnarls Barkley's “Crazy” that makes your girl shake her ass. You have awesome crazy with Kiefer Sutherland and Charlie Sheen who if put together in the same room, would end the universe with their drunken shenanigans. You have racist Mel Gibson crazy and the scientologist representative Tom Cruise pulling out the cult crazy. There is Gary Busey crazy, Lindsey Lohan slutty crazy, and the standard Nicolas Cage flipping his shit crazy. A lot of actors have pulled off crazy on screen surprisingly well, but while Jake Gyllenhaal has shown that he has a decent amount of range, he still has some of the creepiest, most disturbed portrayals of crazy that I have ever seen. Nightcrawler sells the story through a very disturbed man, and with Gyllenhaal in the driver's seat, his madness throughout the film is nothing short of fascinating.

Fury

Fury: A gritty WWII film centering on a tank crew and Brad Pitt’s amazing hair.

 

You’ve seen the lukewarm trailer. You have seen the hair you wish you had. You’ve seen Shia Lebeouf’s antics in the news and filming. We have been through a run of bad reviews with games and movies here on the site and I was actually scared to see the film. But, it looks like for the moment that the spell is broken. Fury is out and while it is cliché a few times, it’s a pretty solid, if gritty war film.

Left Behind

Left Behind:  All Dogs Don't Go To Heaven.

Disclaimer:I am about to talk shit on one of the most beloved fundamentalist Christian plotlines ever made. I don't mean to take fire against religion or religion in general....at least not directly. This is not the Passion of the Christ here. This film legitimately blows donkey dick. If you do take offense to my stance, then for starters, you might want to leave since this is actually kind of mild compared to the other shit lining the walls around here. You could also just find it in your heart to....forgive....me?
