Savages

There are many reviews for Savages available online from critics far more eloquent and accomplished than I. So I wanted to forgo the review and take this opportunity to share the lessons I learned from this wild beast of a film.

But first I can’t resist offering a brief comment regarding my opinion of the movie in the form of a recipe. Savages is three and a half quarts of spectacularly brutal drug trade violence and suspense. Add in two tablespoons of “war on drugs” satire. Take a fresh pinch of Benicio Del Toro psychopath and mix it in with a dab of hilariously corrupt John Travolta. Grind up the lives of 3 people deeply in love before tossing in. Bake the entire concoction for 131 minutes in the Laguna Beach sun. The final dish should entrance, excite, and terrify you. It will be beautiful and haunting. Dare I say it willI be the best dish you’ve sampled this summer. Don’t forget to serve to a chilling Salma Hayek drug kingpin. Or maybe it was don’t forget to serve chilled? Regardless one bite will delight. The sensation is not unlike the tears of joy too many jalapeños bring.

Another Banana Scoop week with some minor changes here and there.  A new month here and I wish I had more upcoming changes.  There are a couple of major things I’m trying to keep under wraps, but of course, I wanna keep them as surprises.

A month or so ago, I reviewed Captain America: The First Avenger and labeled it as a decent superhero flick that ultimately broke no new ground in the genre and then proceeded to give it 2/5 Stars.  So after watching Green Lantern, I want to do either one of two things: Raise The Cap’s score or give this one an even more dismal rating.  This is a result of me realizing that I might have realized that Marvel is doing their superhero franchise more credit than I give out because with Green Lantern I witnessed just how bad you could make a superhero movie.  With more green screen then actual green in a movie about green aliens, Green Lantern embarrasses itself with weak writing, a rushed plot, and a hero that just might be trying a little too hard.
