El Camino Christmas (2017)

Netflix Original

Director:

David E. Talbert

Starring:

Vincent D’Onofrio

Tim Allen

Jessica Alba

Plot:

The project, scripted by Melfi and writer Chris Wehner, is about a young man (Grimes) who seeks out a father he has never met and, through no fault of his own, ends up barricaded in a liquor store with five other people on Christmas Eve. The story takes place in the fictitious town of El Camino, NV.

Review:

Giant cluster fuck the movie. Everything that can go wrong basically does but it’s not funny in the slightest. So if that’s what you want this holiday season, a shootout in a gas station liquor store, involving incompetent cops, and a whole lot of booze then this is the movie for you.

It was depressing.

Tim Allen seemed to be phoning it in, though everyone else was pretty good. Vincent D’Onofrio did a bit of overacting, well maybe not, his character was a fucking asshole and a drunk so who knows. Ending was not very satisfying, though, I appreciated the epilogue. It was not a happy Christmas movie.

2/5

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Plot:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

Review:

So Sin City has a lot of nostalgia attached to it. It was the movie my husband and I went to see on our first date. So we were both looking forward to a sequel, for the last nine years.

Personally I think they shouldn’t have waited so long to make a sequel. The actors were noticeable older and the fact that they didn’t/couldn’t get the original actors for a few parts sucked.

That being said I liked the look and feel of the movie. The action scenes were great and, even though Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character was stupid, I liked his story line.

Men are weak in Sin City. They may be able to beat the shit out of people but the real power are the women.

Least favorite part of the movie was the Dame. In a movie filled with over dramatic characters she stood out and I didn’t like her.

My husband summed the movie up when he said it was a cautionary tale of men thinking with their penises.

3/5
