Probably Michael Rapaport’s most brilliant performance ever. No fucking lie. I thought he was a pretty damn good actor prior to this, but now…wow… amazing film. Anyways in “Special”, Rapaport plays Les, an unfulfilled meter maid who enrolls in a drug study for an experimental anti-depressant.  Soon after taking his first dosage, Les begins to develop an unusual set of skills.  With these new skills, he quits his job to fight crime as a superhero. 

At first I was incredibly skeptical because I wasn’t sure if it was to be a comedy or drama, but it’s what most would call a dramady.  Very humorous, but incredibly emotional.  Watch it, see for yourself.  It’s been out for a while in Europe, but recently made it’s way to the states. Check the trailer out after the break:

By the end of the trailer, I thought I pissed myself, but I realized I had spilt my coffee in my lap while watching. Just kidding though.

The movie “Street Fighter” movie is out, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme and Kylie Minogue.  This is going to be so fucking awesome.  I’ve been waiting for it ever since I played “Street Fighter 2″ on SNES two decades ago.  20 years later some jackass finally decides to make a movie…YESSSSSSSSS!! Check the trailer after the break.

UPDATE: Hope you got the joke Einstein. Two movies about an awesome video game that live up to less than what you just flushed down the toilet.  What a waste of film.

Everyone either has a racist grandparent or at least knows someone who does. The most common way explaining their disposition is “they were raised that way”. However, Gran Torino, Clint Eastwood’s latest endeavor, brings to light all the elements of the frustration of a dying generation. Eastwood turns in a knock-out performance as retired Ford Motor Co. line worker and Korean War veteran Walt Kowalski. He is the last of a dying generation in his Detroit neighborhood which is slowly being transformed into a gangland. When the gang violence hits too close to home, Walt decides to take matters into his own hands.

The cinematography is plain and realistic leaving no room for extravagant CGI sequences. It is story telling at it’s most simple and beautiful form with the familiarity of the view from your front porch. The dialog is crude, strong and enables you to feel every emotion the viewer is meant to. Eastwood’s performance is reminiscent of his Early days as Harry Callahan in the famous Dirty Harry series. Unfortunately, some of the other actors failed to live up to their co-star’s standard. Bee Vang proved unimpressive as Thao Vang Lor, Kowalski’s new and unwelcome neighbor.

Overall, a very powerful and moving film worthy of the accolades it is sure to receive. Definitely a must see.
