The power of salsa

CUBAN FURY

Nick Frost plays Bruce, a man hiding from himself and his passion, the dance of salsa. His co-worker Drew, Chris O’Dowd, is a jerk who goes after the new boss Julia, Rashida Jones. Will Bruce allow the fire of salsa to once again burn inside him?

This is a very funny movie with great characters. The only thing I didn’t like is Chris O’Dowd plays a jerk, and I love him and I don’t like seeing him be mean like that.

The Trip

Standard


So these two comedians/impressionists travel through Northern England to review restaurants. For me this movie was a bit low on the food porn in spite of the fact that eating was a major part of the story.

It was fun and the country side beautiful, but I didn’t get into it that much, probably because one of the characters is a total jerk. I didn’t like him and I didn’t sympathize with him. The other guy was pleasant, but would slip into impersonating celebrities constantly which got a bit old.

I don’t know, for me this just didn’t work, but it might work for you. Check out the trailer and see.

Also I would keep it to older teens and adults for sex, language, and drug use.

British Awesomeness

Wild Target Stars Bill Nighy, Emily Blunt, Rupert Grint, Martin Freeman, and Rupert Everett.

Oh, did you need more? Really? That cast and you just didn’t run out an get it? Odd that. Well okay. Bill Nighy plays a hitman who is devoted to his mother and extremely anal retentive. Emily Blunt is his target, whom not only can he not kill, but winds up protecting. Rupert Everett is our bad guy, and of course he’s wonderful. He hires Martin Freeman to kill them both. Rupert Grint is an innocent bystander who get sucked into all this mess.

It’s hysterical in that sarcastic laid-back British way. I laughed a lot. This is a movie I could easily watch more then once.
