Howdy folks!  It’s The Kendog!

Having just come from the latest James Bond Film “Spectre” I have to say one of the things that impressed me was the level of humor coming from Daniel Craig’s Bond this time around.  While not gut-bustingly over-the-top in the vein of the hope-I-never-see-it Jim Carrey interpretation of Bond, Craig’s superspy is not quite as dour as he’s been in the last few entries.  Speaking of Craig’s sense of humor, I ran across this almost by accident and laughed my rather large posterior off.  Imagine, if you will, what would happen if James Bond had to rent a car and the rental agent was none other than Stephen Colbert.   This is from a recent episode of Colbert’s “The Late Show.” Bonus points for Craig barely keeping it together during the long sketch.  Enjoy!  So Sayeth The Kendog!

It’s Halloween time again and you know what that means for movie lovers.  Time to sit in front of the television and re-acquaint yourself with some of the best scary movies you can think of.  Now I’m going to refrain from doing a standard top ten of all time list, instead choosing to pick ten movies you might not have heard of or might not think of as great scary movies, but take it from me when I say they’ll be worth the watch.  Some are classics, some are not, but all are good-to-great scary movies.  Enjoy!

Dog’s Movie House: “Our Brand Is Crisis” Slight Movie Benefits From Terrific Turn By Bullock!

“Our Brand Is Crisis” seems to be striving for a biting political drama mixed with some comedic moments, but Sandra Bullock’s latest seems to have trouble deciding what kind of film it should be.  Is it a political drama, social satire, slapstick comedy, or inspirational film about the emotional growth of a political mover/shaker searching for redemption.  In truth, “Our Brand Is Crisis” wants to be all of these things and the resulting soup has a somewhat diluted quality to it.  That said, this film is not without its rewards, chief among them a powerhouse performance by Sandra Bullock.

Dog’s Movie House: “Burnt” Slightly Undercooked Drama!

You know your enjoyment of a movie is problematic when you find yourself wishing you were watching a different movie involving similar subject matter.  As I watched Bradley Cooper’s latest, “Burnt,” I couldn’t help but think I’d much rather be watching “Chef” the delightful cooking comedy from last year.  Despite a good cast and lots of shots of delectable-looking entrees, “Burnt” suffers from an unsympathetic protagonist and a too-tidy resolution to problems that require more cinematic depth.  Continue reading

The Trailer Dog Park: It’s “Star Wars” Time Again!

Well in case you’ve been living under a rock, we’ve got a new Star Wars film coming in less than two months and the anticipation is mounting to a fever pitch.  The last time I can remember so much hype for a movie was. . .well, the last start to a Star Wars Trilogy. . .”The Phantom Menace.”  (And everyone knows how that turned out).  So I’ve got the new trailer for you, but I’m adding the one from “The Phantom Menace” to illustrate a point.  “The Phantom Menace” trailer was brilliantly executed and got everyone all geeked out just like the one for “The Force Awakens,” yet the movie (and the whole prequel trilogy, for that matter) underwhelmed.  Now I’m not saying this is going to be the case for “The Force Awakens,” but I always like to temper my expectations for any movie that is so massively hyped as this one.  Trust me, no matter how good this movie is (and I believe it’s gonna be a blast) there is no way it’s going to live up to these insanely unrealistic expectations.  Until December 18th, enjoy the trailers and anticipation.  So sayeth The Kendog!  Continue reading
