Julie Webster of “Teeth” commissioning fame/infamy is back again with another movie to bend our noodles. This one a criminally overlooked Ryan Reynolds movie, “The Voices”. Under the direction of Academy Award winner Marjane Satrapi, and joined by co-star Anna Kendrick, Reynolds really comes out swinging as a poorly understood young man with non-existant social skills just trying to find happiness in life. Unfortunately, for reasons both nature and nurture, his search is in vain, and the movie spirals down an ever increasing dark path. An impressive movie, and one worth watching if you don’t think Ryan Reynolds is capable of any kind of nuanced, interesting work. Just be warned, this movie is pitch black, and very uncomfortable in places.
Jim and A.Ron saw the latest kinda-sorta-Marvel movie, “Deadpool”, and found it defied their expectations. Rather pleasantly so. What we were expecting is some kind of Dumpuary disaster, and what we got was a slick, action packed, very hard “R”, very funny send up of the super hero genre. If you like movies in the “Cranked” franchise, or the latest “Kingsmen” flick, you’ll be right at home. If you want our general thoughts and opinions, as well as what we’re excited for in the “coming soon” trailers, you are welcome to help yourself, but we save the spoiler-filled deep dive for Bald Move Club members only!
