This trailer isn't selling us on this movie. It looks forced and formulaic. That said, there are tons of movies that follow a formula and are genuinely funny so let's not give up all hope on this movie. We need more great comedies and we can't keep putting this burden on Will Ferrel, Will can only do so much and its unfair of us to put Will on this pedestal of greatness of which he most definitely belongs and can do no wrong. We love you Will!!
How does one day of violence solve the issue of crime? That plot point alone is enough to want to see this movie. The only thing that looks weird, is that if crime is allowed on this one day and there are no repercussions then why would you wear a mask? Let's assume that everyone at some point (probably at Halloween) you've worn a mask. So you know how intrusive they can be to your overall peripheral vision. And that's the last thing you want to happen when you're in a poorly lit house with guns and knives is to not see your opponent. Sure it looks cool and scary but that's not going to do you any good when you trip or bump into something. So remember, function over fashion. That's your tip of the day.
VIOLET AND DAISY
This movie hasn't been blessed with the best reviews, but since we're basing our review on the trailer, it looks pretty OK. Sort of a Boondock Saints meets Leon: the Professional. And that would be one really great recipe for a movie. And that's how a lot of movies are pitched. It's Toy Story meets Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Boom! You know you want to see that movie. That's it, give us some paper we just came up with cinematic gold and we now we need to write our Oscar acceptance speech.
