The film “Alice’s Restaurant” is an avant-garde snapshot of 1960’s counter-culture

You can see anything you want at Alices Restaurant

“Hi, howya doin? I’m Arlo Guthrie and you’ve probably listened to or heard about a thing called Alice’s Restaurant.“

That is the beginning of the narrative that is spoken at the start of the movie, Alice’s Restaurant, and also used as the trailer for the film as an explanation of what the movie is and how it is based on Arlo Guthrie’s song of the same name.

2014’s Need for Speed movie is much more than just a marvelous Shelby Mustang

Need for Speed Movie

Sure, it’s about a video game, and those kinds of movies don’t typically hold much water but 2014’s Need For Speed movie contains a plot no more or less complicated than the plot from any of the NFS games, which I played many many times.

And it has the combined superpower of a young Rami Malek, Aaron Paul, Dominic Cooper, Imogen Poots, Kid Cudi, plus the amazingly talented and brilliant Michael Keaton, and the show-stopping cars you would expect it to have.

Agent Winchester’s Quick Review of Anna

Anna, directed by Luc Besson, cast/has three legit stars in it: Helen Mirren, Luke Evans, and Cillian Murphy. After a failed relationship ends suddenly, she is recruited by the KGB. After a year in training and two in the field, she learns the promise of freedom after five years of service is a lie. She is also a successful model between jobs, and working dual professions is hard on her.

Under the thumb of the KGB, including her handler, Alex (Evans) and intelligence officer, Olga (Mirren), she is a precise and methodical killer.

Agent Palmer’s Thoughts on Destination Wedding or This Post Can’t Be Ignored Because Then the Entire Internet Would End

Destination Wedding

Destination Wedding is an interesting and superbly written film. Written and directed by Victor Levin, this film is more than the sum of its main title Destination Wedding, but it’s “unofficial title” says a lot more about where it’s at, “Destination Wedding or A Narcissist Can’t Die Because Then the Entire World Would End.”

It stars Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves who are both fantastic, but it’s the script that speaks to me in the most incredible way.
