We've got the big reviews this week, we've got a couple of web-only reviews, and we've got some reviews that nobody else in town does. So let's get the fuck to it, shall we?
KICK-ASS 2 I've only grown to dislike this movie more the longer I've thought about it, and now I think I was too nice to it in my review. Which is strange, because it's not a very nice review. Anyway, Kick-Ass 2 is terrible, you should't see it, and here's some further reading on why it's "misogynist garbage."
PARANOIA Ned did not care for this movie. Which is fair! It sounds super boring! On the upside, Harrison Ford's character is named "Jock Goddard," which is my second-favorite character name this summer, right after "Stacker Pentecost."
JOBS Ashton Kutcher tries to play Steve Jobs. Paul says this works out about as well as you'd expect.
THE BUTLER The marketing materials are calling it Lee Daniels' The Butler, as if having the guy who directed Precious and The Paperboy is something to be proud of? Weird. Anyway, Zac says it's not as bad as it looks! Also weird.
ADJUST YOUR TRACKING: THE UNTOLD STORY OF THE VHS COLLECTOR H. Perry Horton interviewed the directors of this documentary about VHS-obsessed collectors. Here's where things get nuts: Those same directors interview H. Perry Horton... IN THE MOVIE. Whoa.
