Swiss Army Man (2016)

It started with a fart joke.

And yet, Swiss Army Man is a lot more than a simple fart joke, and it’s not just about a highly functioning zombie that doubles as a Swiss Army knife and has some unusual skills. But if I were to summarize what the movie is about, those are the exact things I would mention first. Fart jokes and a formerly dead person whose farts can make him jet ski and whose erect penis doubles as a compass.

Now You See Me 2 (2016)

now you see me 2I can sum up Now You See Me 2 with one word – disappointment. Disappointment that I didn’t like the movie, and that it’s such an unsuccessful attempt to recreate the appeal of the first movie.

Plus, with the premise taking place in Canada, and with the production being shared with Ireland, What If differs from the typical US rom-coms (thank god!) and shows us realistically how two people should really actually fall in love!

There are a few spoilers waiting for you.

There are number of reviews waiting to be written, including Gone Girl and Radcliffe’s cozy romantic comedy What If, but I figured I’d break the thread of good reviews with something different. Horns is the kind of movie that succeeds and fails at the same time, it does some things perfectly, others not so much and then there’s that awful ending that pretty much spoils the whole experience… and yet, it’s still quite alright.
