THE SOLOIST (2009


Directed By: Joe Wright
Written By: Susannah Grant
Based On The Book By: Steve Lopez
Cinematography By: Seamus McGarvey
Editor: Paul Tothill

Cast: Robert Downey Jr., Jamie Foxx, Catherine Keener, Stephen Root, Lisa Gay Hamilton, Rachael Harris, Tom Hollander


The film is perfectly fine entertainment of a film that really doesn’t have a plot. Sure it’s a fascinating fact based story that may have been better explored as a documentary or maybe even better reading about it but the film leaves a lot to be desired as not much really happens except that it makes the main character feel better by discovering and trying to help a talented homeless schizophrenic . Which is pretty much the plot of the film.

THE WORST MOVIES I SAW IN 2009


Sure some of these had some value somewhere in there but it was not enough to make these film either good or enjoyable enough to not make you feel like you wasted your time. Some may even make you physically ill.

EXTRACT (2009)



Cast: Jason Batemen, Kristen Wiig, Dustin Milliagan, Ben Affleck, J.K. Simmons, Mila Kunis, Gene Simmons, Clifton Collins Jr., David Koechner, Hal Sparks, Tom Virtue

Written & Directed By Mike Judge
Cinematography By: Tim Shustedt
Editor: Julia Wong


No one quite does satire or the mundaness of life like mike judge. The fun of this movie is that like his show king of the hill it involves normal characters that see so real you could swear you know someone just like each of them but he then throws these characters into increasingly outrageous situations that are believable.
