I’d like to take a second to publicly thank Jerod Brennen, my friend since high school who first made me watch Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead 2” (on VHS, no less). And I’d like to personally recommend “Dead Snow 2: Dead vs. Red” to Jerod and anyone else who enjoys this sentiment.
The poster for the American release of the German-language film “Wetlands” boasts the following Buzzfeed-y blurb (from, um, Buzzfeed): “The most WTF, NSFW movie at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.” If that seems like hype, I would say it actually understates it.
For me to drop a one-star review on a movie, it has to be more than just bad. It has to be a massive disappointment. It has to be a huge waste of potential from talents who know better — which all but guarantees a minimum 1 1/2-star rating for Adam Sandler films. Welcome to my one-star review of David Fincher’s “Gone Girl.”
