My Review of Killing Them Softly http://www.ryanhawbecker.com/2012/11/killing-them-softly-movie-review.html?spref=tw …
Why is it after only a month or 2 all the audio reviews don't work anymore. This is the third time tring to download a a review and hit with the "404 not found" error.
Brad Pitt is a phony
For anybody who's still check this post: The ONLY reason we don't have Brian on all the reviews is because it doesn't work to have more than 4 people on the mic at one time (trust me, we tried and tried). However, look for Brian to be our #1 fill-in guy when one of us needs to be out.
Ex: You can catch Brian in our recent review of "UNIVERSAL SOLDIER: Day of Reckoning"
The Assasination of Jesse James was a good fucking movie, yeah it was a little slow but still great, this movie was ok, I wish they would just make a Sopranos movie directed by Scorsese that would be awesome!!!!
I thought this was overrated. The cast is good to varying degrees but, while I don't mind dialogue heavy films, half of the dialogue (usually the first half dialogue in every scene) does not have a purpose. It could have been easily cut out and it would not have made a difference except better pacing. Also, the plot on paper is interesting with 2 dumb guys robbing the mob and the mob hires a hitman to take revenge but they overcomplicate it with needless dialogue and political references to the 2008 economic crash. When it finally takes off within the last 10 minutes, it suddenly ends like someone pulled the plug. While not a terrible film, it is a medicore film that has been overly praised by critics.
Killing ME Softly ... with boredom. So many critics out there praised this movie up the butt and I was a fool enough to listen to them and waste my money. You could have told this movies plot in thirty minutes if you scraped away all of the unnecessary and irrelevant plot threads, like a certain character whining about their wife for at least 20 minutes of screen time. There are all of these attempts at being artsy and different with editing and cinematography choices but it always distracts from what little story is there. It tries to pretend to be smart by shoving down the elections and the state of America down our throats for a cheap social commentary. Really, this is a stupid movie trying to disguise itself as a smart one. I kept checking the time and considering walking out but thought that maybe there would be at least one surprise from this boringly straight forward story. Instead there is an incredibly unsatisfying and abrupt conclusion and you're left sitting for a moment, wondering if critics are getting paid off for their praise. Minus a good cast and some pretty visuals that were totally unnecessary and self indulgent, this has little going for it.
Killing Them Softly? More like not killing them at all, I thought it would be a good mob movie, but it became a wave your finger at politics and watch some true hitman get caught up in a mess up of a poker ring who are ran by stupid people. This is some bullshit to me. It didn't help I got stuck next to people who couldn't shut up.Also if you want to hear losers talking about their dicks and fucking animals this is your movie, cause half of the movie is just that.
