Three sentence movie reviews: Pain and Gain
I’ve discovered Filmspotting, a podcast where they have long (long, long) conversations about movies and I find this podcast enjoyable. Recently, there was controversy when one host picked this film to be in their top five while the other host was incredulous that it was liked at all. Having now watched the film, I can say it was NOT an enjoyable example of the dumb criminal film* as what was amusing at the beginning turned quickly into the movie equivalent of the criminal’s “stupid” repeatedly banging me on the head with a chair.**
Cost: $2.00 from Videorama
Where watched: at home with Matt.
*Good “dumb criminals” movies: Fargo, To Die For.
**Matt rather enjoyed it, though.
