Jambalaya, Anyone? The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call-New Orleans review!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call-New Orleans 2009William M. FinkelsteinWerner HerzogNicolas Cage, Eva Mendes, Val KilmerAbel Ferrara Bitter,Bitterometer,meter The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call-New Orleans(2009)
 

The sequel/re-imagination bug has appears to have bitten the artsy world of indie cinema with 2009’s “The Bad Lieutenant: Port of Call-New Orleans,” a new take on 1992’s underappreciated “Bad Lieutenant.” The original film, directed by veteran filmmaker Abel Ferrara with a blitz performance by Harvey Keitel, was a sublime study of an authority figure’s fall into the very vices he’s swore to prevent. Ferrara’s brutally earnest tragedy hardly seems apt to spawn a sequel. In the hands of German auteur Werner Herzog, “The Bad Lieutenant” series is reborn as an eccentric dark comedy about the extremes of an officer left unchecked.

Christina Aguilera stars in "Burlesque". Yet another lump of Hollywood crap.

Bitter,Bitterometer,meter Burlesque
 

How do you take an art form that has survived for years in relative obscurity, introduce it to a new generation, most likelymake it popular again and totally betray what the how the art form really should be treated? Make this movie!

Burlesque dancers dance and look damn sexy doing it. They DO NOT SING! We knew there was trouble when we saw Christina Aguilera in the notes of the trailer, but it gets worse.

Have we learned NOTHING from "GLITTER"!?!?!?!!

P.S. Is it us or is Cher starting to look a bit like a muppet?

I'm on IMDB!!!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, I'm listed as a sound mixer on the short indie I'm listed as a sound mixer on the short indie "Hate Crime"
 

Move over, Nolan and Bay, this half of bitter balcony is on your footsteps!!! Well, not quite. Last year I did a bit of sound mixing for Florida filmmaker Michael A. de Melo's "Hate Crime," a short done in two days in one of Nova University's conference rooms. I'm proud to announce that now one of your pals from this website has been listed as John Rojas: SOUND MIXER!!! Actually I'm the third John Rojas listed, my two clones have found success in the Camera and Electrical department and the other as an editor. While I realize that my name will never show up anywhere near the star-meter top ten, it's good to know somewhere in the vast IMDB universe a rarely seen page has all my accomplishments(1), which will always be cooler than some nerd (like zimbabwebob) who can't even put his name when they take a shot at your website. Now, if we can get corporate sponsorship...

Dinner for Schmucks: Not Much of a Meal, but The Flight of the Conchords Guy is Funny!

Bitter, Bitter Balcony, Movie Review, Dinner for Schmucks 2010David Guion, Michael HandelmanJay RoachSteve Carell, Paul Rudd, Jemaine Clement, Zach Galifianakis, Stephanie SzostakFrancis Veber Bitter,Bitterometer,meter Dinner for Schmucks(2010)
 

“Dinner for Schmucks” is another remake produced by Hollywood, proof that having a DVD player or a vast collection of movies are more important than a screenplay program for writers nowadays. For the American version of French director’s Francis Veber “The Dinner Game,” Steve Carell plays the good natured but social misfit Barry. Barry is invited to a special dinner by Tim (Paul Rudd), who meet each other after Tim accidentally hits Barry with his car. Tim, who looks to move up in his job, is offered the opportunity of a lifetime, but one that challenges his ethics. As for Barry, whose hobby is to make works of art with dead mice, is joyous of the RSVP by his newfound friend, unaware that the dinner he’s about to attend is an aristocratic gathering for the haves to ridicule the follies of some poor outcasts.
