Wear A Moustache And Stand In A Hole: Thoughts On “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Wear A Moustache And Stand In A Hole: Thoughts On “The Grand Budapest Hotel”

Myke Johns and Kristina Ackerman discuss the trailer for The Grand Budapest Hotel.

MYKE

More than most things, I want for Wes Anderson to stop.

Meeting Evil

Meeting Evil

In which Jason is joined by Johnny Carroll for a review of the trailer for Meeting Evil.

J: According to the synopsis, Meeting Evil is about when “depressed suburban family man John Fleton offers to help a stranger with his car and is sucked into a surreal, nightmarish murder spree.” That seems like quite a jump, from emergency roadside assistance to nightmarish murder spree. “Well, the spare tire was flat, so we just started killing people.” If the only thing between you and a murder spree is a can of Fix-A-Flat under the passenger seat, you just might be a murderer.  Did anybody else read that in Jeff Foxworthy’s voice? Jeff Foxworthy being one Blue Collar Comedy Tour with Larry the Cable Guy away from a murder spree of his own.

Moonrise Kingdom

Moonrise Kingdom

In which Jason and Kristina of Knuckle Salad discuss the trailer for the movie Moonrise Kingdom.

J: Wow, this movie has it all. Little girls in bird costumes, old compasses, kids writing notes to each other on custom stationary and Ed Norton in a Boy Scout uniform. It’s like the deleted scenes from The People vs. Larry Flynt in an alternate universe where Hustler magazine is about the top sellers on Etsy. According to its synopsis, Moonrise Kingdom is about two twelve-year-olds who fall in love at summer camp, make a secret pact, and run away together into the wilderness. I had a crush on a curly haired girl at 4-H camp when I was twelve. She never smiled and got pregnant in the tenth grade. I guess she would have gotten pregnant even sooner if she hadn’t scowled so much.
