Raunchy, vulgar, full of swearing and lots of horrible violence blowing peoples heads off. Even a scene suggesting and leading up to anal intercourse. And it would not be complete without a wife beater scene or two.
No not see this movie if you are a family that cares about morals and ethics.
Disgusting waste of money and time.
WOW! Still lookin' good @ 70; even the girls are still lively/lovely! Thx, Inlander, for the great DP pic!
"...who grew up in the San Gabriel Valley on the east side of Los Angeles" - a tad hyperbolic, no? This guy grew up in SOUTH PASADENA, not exactly the mean streets, k?
Boy George rockin' the Motörhead T. Tasteful yet unexpected .
Guess you never heard of David Bowie....
I saw them in Boise last week, it was definitely the best KISS show I have seen, and I have seen nearly all incarnations of the band. They sounded great and looked liked a band half their age! Paul was rolling around and jumping around, you wouldn't know he has had his hip replaced. If you never heard of KISS and this was your first show, you would have no idea, they were pushing 70!
The acting and comedy chops of each actress are more than enough to carry any movie; leave it to the ever sexist / racist liberals to focus on their gender versus their talent.
Great review for a brilliant film!
Isn't that why the documentary should be watched? So people can understand what was so very wrong about the entire situation and learn how to better choose our representatives?
Weiner is a loser. He will always be a loser and I don't understand why anyone would bother to make a film about him or even watch a film made about him.
Weiner is the poster-child of what is wrong in politics......
Hi, Rachel. I'm the author of the piece above, and while I agree that *Pitch Perfect 2* is far from a great film, there is no way you can say that the characters are "token." They may mostly be fairly stereotypical, but the situation for women onscreen is so bad that even a female ensemble of stereotypes counts as an improvement for female representation! It's really, really rare to see *so many* women in the same movie, and each depicted as individual people. And there are some notable *good* things in the film's depiction of women: there's a fat character who is depicted as sexual and as someone men find attractive, a woman who appears to get her fill of sex and love, and this is not treated as anything unusual. And networking among women is depicted as a positive and necessary thing: the movie features a professional mentoring relationship between two young women — a college senior and a freshman — which is not something we typically get to see onscreen. (I can’t think of another example.)
Movies about women don't have to be perfect: they just have to be about women! And unless you're going to demand that all movies about men *always* rise above stereotypes, it's not reasonable to expect the same from movies about women.
Why is the picture of the exemplary film to feature women Pitch Perfect? If anything, that film is the perfect example of how films so often feature women in completely token way. It checks off the "having female leads" box without ever having to write truly representative character that is more than a stereotype. I mean, I don't mean to sound like an asshole, but even the Honest Trailer guys think that. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-j8XXtwSO0
Amazing show in KC! ;-)
I still miss Terry a lot.
Conor from Dancing Plague doesn't pitch shift his vocals or "manipulate" them. That's all natural
The Local Pavlov EP was done with Gil, Bryan Coats (Black water Prophet) on drums and Ken Wolcott (the Hallows) Jeff and Travis joined after.
I have both there CD's. Love the Raven !
Wow. I just came from the movie and the exact reaction as the reviewer. What could have been was washed out by nostalgia.
This reminds me of Liverpool's Cavern Club made legendary by the Beatles. Way cool.
WOW! Still lookin' good @ 70; even the girls are still lively/lovely! Thx, Inlander, for…
