What you may need to know.

1. Bill Murray. Say no more.

2.
After spending the last decade mostly doing cameos, Wes Anderson movies and generally being Bill Murray, he’s back in leading man mode.

3. Bruce Willis, phoning it in to the extent he doesn’t stand unless its entirely necessary (call it James Spader Syndrome)

4. Danny McBride. Always a pleasure.

5. Directed by Barry Levinson – has it really been TWENTY-EIGHT YEARS since Good Morning Vietnam?

6. Yes, Murray’s doing a Christmas special for Netflix. And yes, it’s called A Very Murray Christmas.

7. Broadsheet Prognosis: We miss you, Harold Ramis.

Release date:
October 23

        It’s a turd. Overindulgent navel gazing shite. Oh how I really empathise with the world weary ennui of over privileged white folk. And the quasi mystical ending of ‘what did he say to her!!’ Jesus wept.

          Your one of those people. A simple i liked/hated it would do. I personally think it’s very good.

            Well, I couldn’t just say I hated it as it wouldn’t accurately explain why you’re wrong for liking it.

            I am fully with Mani on this one. Watching lost in translation is like doing the backstroke through a warm pool of fecal matter while being cheered on by hipsters in steampunk costumes.

    nice use of Nilsson’s “Jump in the Fire”

    Murray’s made remarkably few bad movies, unfortunately this looks like one of them.

      Garfield
      Garfield 2
      Hyde park on Hudson
      Ghostbusters 2
      The monuments men
      Get smart
      Charlie’s angels
      Wild things
      Larger than life

      The mans no stranger to taking a pay cheque like.

        The Garfield films were the result of an honest mistake though, in fairness to the man.
        A Joel Coen version of Garfield could possibly be good. Or possibly not.

            Contractual issues perhaps?
            Or maybe he misread the name in the script again, thinking they’d got Coen in to salvage the mess Cohen had created?

      2. Spaghetti Hoop

        I think he’s cast more for his drollness and smugness, less for serious acting ability.

    Bill Murray is the acting equivalent of Wes Anderson.

    Unarguably talented but omfg can the hipster please stop gushing with praise
