For all who dared to go to the "Jackass 3D", there are three most important advices in order to spent good those 94 minutes.
1. Lovers of intelligent cinema, mannered young ladies and blondes, as well as persons under 18 years will have nothing to do here. The first will unlikely appreciate the humor, the second and third one will be in a position close to the shock, and a quarter will want to repeat the trick itself, but I note that in each case, there are exceptions.
2. Come with a big company to make even funnier.
3. Do not even try to comprehend what you saw, but it is better not load brain with superfluous thoughts.
Now about "Jackass". The initial splash with Beavis and Bathed flatly declares the nature of the film, and at the same time, a mockery of the accursed 3D is a pleasant feeling of solidarity. Initial and final titers demonstrate the power of new-fashioned format, but at the same time, it is not so difficult to see that it was used in the movie many times, thus the ideological message from Beavis and Bathed was ruined.
"Jackass" has no plot and it would be strange if it was. From the first till the last moment you will see clips from Jackass stunts from the team. I must say, they do not lack imagination: pulling a tooth with a help of Lamborghini, the fight against buffalo and sheep, flying in a toilet stall, violent midgets and much more. Sometimes they go too stick, but their actions are still greatly amused.
So if you follow my three advices, you'll either avoid insulting waste of money, or spend very fun and rewarding time.
P.S. Jackass are already wealthy people, their shows have been broadcasted at MTV, and now they have skillfully earn a very serious amount of money due to huge box office.
Last week in the U.S. has been released a new comedy by Peter and Bobby Farrelly "Hall Pass", so that directors are already planning their next film. Given that shooting of the film "Three stooges" has not formed, producers are considering to revive the heroes of their debut comedy "Dumb and Dumber" in the sequel.
Painting with Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels became the first brothers’ movie in 1994, firmly occupying cinemas around the world. Tape with a budget of $ 17 million in worldwide box office has earned 247 million. Heroes of the film - two friends, who are pursuing a pretty girl to give her a lost diplomat, but it turns out that she threw it specifically to deliver the security deposit for the kidnapped husband.
Being in Australia, with promo visit for "Hall Pass”, Peter and Bobby Farrelly said that would not mind to shoot a sequel. "If we can agree with Jim and Jeff, you can get a good continuation. By the way, we are working in this direction. We started thinking about what would happen with these dope in 20 years. We hope to come up with something worthwhile for the sequel. "
Jim Carrey has long been attributed to the "Three stooges". After the "Dumb & Dumber" actor starred in Farrelly brothers’ comedy "Me, Myself and Irene." Jeff Daniels did not cooperate with brothers anymore, but spoke warmly of working with them. Sequel to "Dumb and Dumber" to date is written in the section of rumors, but given the low fees of recent tapes by Peter and Bobby, there is a chance that producers will want to return to familiar characters.
Charlie Sheen, on whose initiative was discontinued production of the ninth season of "Two and a half men" in connection with the scandal between him and the creator of the show Chuck Lorrie, said he was ready to return to work, only if his fees would be increased by 50%.
Charlie Sheen demands from producers to increase his fees (3$ million per episode), which are the highest on television, since according to him, he is waiting for an apology: "Big apologies. They have to kiss my feet".
Production of the ninth season was halted last week, but Sheen denied that this happened because of his comments: "I'm not angry, I'm patient."
"Everyone things that I must beg guide me back my job, I'll answer that they will beg me to come back. I’m a man of my word, so I’ll finish my work on the show. Even shoot at the 10th season, but now, when I’ve treated from psychological trauma, it will cost 3 million per episode ... As you wish. "
Being the highest paid actor on television - $ 2 million per episode - Sheen believes that he is underpaid, if we calculate how much earns the series channel CBS.
"I'm tired of pretending to be the common man. I'm tired of pretending that I'm not fucking rock star right from Mars, and that people just cannot know me better. I do not expect this from them. You can not monitor my progress, with the usual brain. "
Sheen said that Colin Farrell, Mel Gibson and Sean Penn have already offered their support. He said he had been clean and sober during the interview, because "drug test will not lie”, however, the question of when he got drunk the last time, hastened to reply: "I do not remember what's the difference?" Sheen argues that recovered from addiction with the help of his mind. The actor explained that he turned to drugs and alcohol because of boredom and a desire to see things differently.
"I do not believe that, if I do something, then it will necessarily lead to that, as beautifully written in some books. I have reached the radical success, acting on my own program. TAA Instructions were written for ordinary people, people in whose veins doesn’t flow the blood of the tiger, who do not have the DNA of Adonis. "
Sheen says that now he is "at war" with CBS: "The defeat - not an option. They chose to fight a sorcerer." His plan for victory in this war is the following: "With zeal and concentration, with a fierce hatred ... You either love or hate. To live in the middle - do not get paid."
Describing his life "ideal" at the moment, Sheen said about how he is focused and excited about life and responsibility of "highest human destiny." He does not deny that he loves to have fun.
- Is it true that the project "Ghostbusters 3" exists and that you are the problem because you do not intend to sign a contract to participate in it?
Yes, I think I’m - the problem. Earlier, I used to represent a valuable thing, and now I’m a problem. Somewhere on my desk lies a script, but I have not read it yet.
- Why didn’t you read it? Because you believe that this crazy idea? In other words, the "Ghostbusters" were on top, you have done your work perfectly and want to move on?
Well, it looks like. I've filmed only in one sequel - "Ghostbusters 2" and the movie turned out not as thought in the beginning. Five years after the first part of the smart agents have brought us all together in one room and ... we really have fun together, I mean, Harold, Danny, myself and Ivan and some other people.
We had a conversation, and Danny and Harold came up with some ideas ... and invented the story, good story, I must admit. I even read a few drafts of a script that has been written by Danny, and the outcome was really cool. So I said yes. You know, we got the pleasure of working together. I want to say that Moranis, Potts – they are great guys that are nice to have deal with.
- So, how is your return to the third part? Does Ivan want to shoot the third "Ghostbusters"?
Yes, Ivan wants it, but ... I owe a debt him, you know. He was puzzled by the fact that I have no desire to participate in this project.
- How long is the script been lying on your desk?
Well, it’s not literally on the table, but somewhere nearby. How long? I do not know.
- In general, you are not interested?
Hmm, I'll get to it (the script) ... I have to do it - I feel at this lousy. I do not want to offend anyone, but it is not main problem that stands in front of me, so I don’t think about it too much.
You know, the studio is excited every 10 years. What they really need is to revive the franchise. I remember when the studio struggled for new "Ghostbusters" actors - Chris Rock, Chris Farley and Chris Crane ... Kris Kringle ... something like this (laughs).
- Do you evaluate this as a veiled threat: either you agree or we will find the new "Ghostbusters"?
This is not a threat, it’s a business - they want to do business with. And today there are people, who are ready to watch the new "busters" and love them because they are still very popular…
Rick (Owen Wilson) and Fred (Jason Sudeykis) - two old friends. Both are long-married. In the married life of each of them comes a point when they unwittingly begin to show fatigue outwardly from their wives. Those deciding to save the marriage, give their husbands a week of liberty, when they can do whatever they want and with whom they want. Delighted friends have already anticipated numerous intrigues, but suddenly found out for themselves, that they are not so brave and gullible, as currently thought.
Farrell’s brothers never cease to regale the audience with new tales of the restless idiots who in fact are nearly all of their heroes. Whether it is one-handed bowler Roy ("Kingpin"), two complete nerds Harry and Lloyd ("Dumb and Dumber"), a fantastic loser Ted ("There is Something About Mary"), schizophrenic, Charlie ("Me, Myself and Irene"). Only a film "Osmosis Jones" looks like different, but Farrell’s directed there only live game episodes (Funny animated scene was headed the other directors), just being in the traditional vein of creativity. Pleasure to the amateur, although some courage and some funny jokes allowed to avoid sharp critic.
Farrell's previous work was a remake of a well-deserved melodramatic comedy by screenwriter Elaine May "The heartbreak kid" running by relatives turned from a lovely swatch of the American new wave in the rollicking absurdity. Film "The Heartbreak Kid" did not become a hit, collapsed in the U.S. (and, incidentally, many of the previous tape duo), beating the budget only through the international dues. "Hall Pass” doesn’t base on the physiological drawbacks of the main characters.
Since March 4 at the American box office will start cartoon "Rango" by Gore Verbinski, "Red State” by Kevin Smith, "Take me home tonight” by Michael Hawes, “Loong Boonmee raleuk chat" by Apitchatpon Virasetakun and other films.
In the American box office the main portion of attention went to large-scale animation project "Rango" with Johnny Depp from the creator of "Pirates of the Caribbean" Gore Verbinski and Philip K. Dick movie "The adjustment bureau". In the author's pocket were two Asian sensational tapes: South Korean thriller "I saw the devil" ("Akmareul boatda") and Thai drama "Loong Boonmee raleuk chat", which has taken the top prize at the Cannes Film Festival.
"The adjustment bureau"
Young and cocky Congressman David Norris (Matt Damon) running for the Senate and is a potential winner. But lost the election because of his youthful missteps, he goes into the men's dressing room to rehearse speech before an audience. There's a man meets a dancer Eliza (Emily Blunt).
Between them runs a spark clash with a kiss, and inspired Norris says the best speech of his career, once again captured the lost sympathy of the electorate. Subsequently, randomly confronted with Eliza on the bus, he understands that completely in love with a girl.
But on his path stands staff mysterious Adjustment Bureau, the politician said that the meeting with a dancer was to be held only once, and if he will continue to further relations with the girl, the organization insists on a more serious measures, up to full reset the memory of the hero.
Domestic Chameleon (voice and facial expressions of Johnny Depp) gets into Nevada desert, where he accidentally impersonating himself as heroic cowboy named Rango - threatens of the entire neighborhood.
Originally director Gore Verbinski had planned to make "Rango" a low-budget outlet following a large scale "Pirates of the Caribbean". As a result, the project became a heavyweight, whose cost slightly less than the same "Pirates." As the latest and most popular creation of director, "Rango" is based on proven genre scheme. If the saga of Jack Sparrow has been made in the key of the old-fashioned sea films (a la pirate stories with Errol Flynn), the cartoon is an ironic family western, built with the help of canonical moves and typecasting of the famous cowboy stories.
During the creation of animated pictures Verbinski tried to make the minor characters no less characteristic than the central one, inspired by an episode of "Wild bunch" by Sam Peckinpah, when the hero Strother Martin pulls off the boots from a dead man.
Critics have accepted the film with the great interest, calling it a superb and witty spectacle for all ages.
"Loong Boonmee raleuk chat"

Elite Thai director Apitchatpon Virasetakun long been known to the public only by participation on art-house festivals. Now, with victory at Cannes, he became popular among other known directors. "Boonmee" develops the same ideas of magic realism, mixed with portraits of Thai workers and rural social stratum. The idea grew out of the tape of the book "The man who remembers his past lives", written by abbot from Buddhist monastery Pra Sriparyattiveti.
"I saw the devil" ("Akmareul boatda")
The school bus driver (Min-sik Choi) and ingenious maniac, very brutally murdering young girls, made his victim the pregnant girlfriend of the agent of National Intelligence (Ben Hong Li). The man has to find a psychopath, deciding to revenge him. Every time, beating maniac, he would let him go, and then overtake again and again, risking to drop and lose sight of the murderer at all.
South Korea's barrage of non-standard genre movies in the past few years has manifested itself so clearly that it is impossible not to recognize the clear superiority of authors from this country over many other national cinemas. Beginning of a trend has put Joon-ho Bong with his brilliant "Memories of Murder".
"I saw the devil" is a thriller about the pursuit of a maniac, in his first half meticulously observant, many conventions of the genre (with some references to the movie "Seven" by David Fincher), and then turned upside down and transforms quickly into a parable about an advanced revenge.
Critics have reacted to the Korean movie with enthusiasm, noting the excellent camera work and producing skills.
Also in the American box starts comedy "Take me home tonight" by Michael Hawes, like last year's "Hot Tub Time Machine", has made a source of inspiration for the aesthetics of the 1980's. Among other premier films "Beastly" with Alex Pettifer.
