Instant Movie Review

  1. It’s misleading to name your film Carnage if Kate Winslet vomiting on a coffee table book is the most violent thing that happens.
  2. My motivation for seeing Carnage was simply to get out of the house with friends. I didn’t do pre-screening research. Had I known it was directed by child rapist, Roman Polanski, I would have passed.
  3. Jodie Foster. Overact much?
  4. John C. Reilly. The whole doughy schlub married to a hot wife thing has been done to death. Not buying it anymore. Do something with that hair.
  5. These two couples had to meet because their sons had a fight that started when one called the other a “snitch.” Really? That’s the best you could come up with? You apparently live in the pansiest neighborhood in Brooklyn if that’s all you’ve got. Cut your losses and move on.

  1. I saw the play at the Gutherie and it was fantastic!!! I heard it had translated poorly to the screen – and now will definitely avoid it. In the play the fight was something way better than name calling but I forget what it was, but blood was drawn.

    • Yeah, I can see that. We were actually talking about how it would probably work on stage. It wasn’t “Drive” bad, I mean, it had its moments and did keep me entertained, but it was basically an acting exercise.
