There really was no need for a Bad Santa 2 as the original has become a holiday cult classic and it has been 13 years since. Sure, it does have the mean streak that made the first popular, unfortunately the humor mostly falls flat.
Broad Green has announced the date and released artwork for the comedy, Bad Santa 2: Unrated starring Billy Bob Thornton, Kathy Bates, Tony Cox and Christina Hendricks and directed by Mark Waters (Mean Girls, Vampire Academy).

Our Brand is Crisis isn’t a bad movie per se but it’s one with some identity issues. Personally, it might’ve worked far better as a satire on American politics but they decided to use the country of Bolivia as a stand-in. This is the type of movie that screams rental, not much more.
Warner Brothers has announced the date and released artwork for the political drama-comedy, Our Brand is Crisis starring Sandra Bullock, Billy Bob Thornton and Anthony Mackie and directed by David Gordon Green (Pineapple Express).

Entourage: The Movie isn’t bad in the same way as films like Transformers: Age of Extinction or Muck are but instead it’s just a self-indulgent flick where Hollywood stars can rub shoulders with one another and have a good time with it. That said, I suppose if you’re a fan of the series, which I was at one point for the first few seasons, this might be satisfactory if only because it’s serves as an extended episode.
U Turn is not one of Oliver Stone’s strongest films, although it is one of my favorite of his (taking into consideration I’ve never been a big fan of his), but features a great cast and fantastic performances by Sean Penn and Jennifer Lopez. The Blu-ray distributed by Twilight Time might be limited in features but the video and audio transfers might make it a worthwhile purchase, though as usual, it’s not a cheap release.
I can understand how many would dislike and even hate Armageddon because there are plenty of reasons why it should’ve failed, but as someone who doesn’t have too many guilty pleasures, I’ve allowed this to be one of them.
