Shadowlocked - These films put the 'suck' in 'success'...
Despite countless negative reviews - such as this one - The Hangover 2 has, as of last Sunday, become the biggest grossing R-rated comedy of all time. Surpassing its predecessor by a cool $20 million, the sequel is yet another addition to what I like to call the 'cash-condors' - a film that manages financial success despite its ugly looks and/or content. Inspired by the 'only-a-mother-could-love& #39; appearance of the Californian Condor, these films share much in common with this unfortunate bird of prey. Both are vultures (either through family or financial ties); both reproduce at a young age (six for the bird itself, and probably between 1-3 years for the greedy, corporate film studios); and both have increased their numbers drastically in the last couple of years (all of our film choices have occurred within the last 9 years).
One can find a quite revealing, fascinatingly candid admission by Steven Spielberg on a documentary for Indiana Jones & The Kingdom of the Crystal Skull featured on the film’s DVD release.
Indiana Jones 5 is indeed still on the way, and according to Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy, Harrison Ford can't wait to make it.
Daily Video Game writes: "Amazon is featuring various Blu-ray movies on sale under $5 right now for those who are looking for new Blu-ray movies to watch this weekend on a budget."
