kidd_reviews Why haven't I reviewed anything in over a week? Probably because everytime I look at that list I see #TowerHeist is next. And I just sort of lose my desire to review a movie. But oh well, I'm ripping off the band-aid now. I'm making Tower Heist sound terrible, but it's not. It's just that I really can't think of a movie I feel more passive towards than Tower Heist. It's the most OK movie I've probably ever seen. It's about Ben Stiller and a group of people that work at this apartment (hotel?) building called The Tower, when the owner gets arrested after losing all of their money. So they decide to basically go to his apartment and take a bunch of gold he has to get their money back. It's just a generic, mildly funny and entertaining heist movie. It's like Ocean's Eleven except Ocean's Eleven is awesome and directed by Steven Soderbergh. This is directed by Brett Ratner, who's basically known for making generally OK-mediocre, disposable movies. And this fits right in. There's nothing about Tower Heist that I hated, or even strongly disliked, but there's nothing I loved, or even really liked. It's a good food movie I guess? Like if you want to order a pizza and watch a simple, easy movie while eating, this is a solid bet. When the strongest thing I dislike in a movie is its obnoxiously generic score, that sounds like discount elevator spy music, the movie's really not that bad. Eddie Murphy made me laugh a few times. There were a couple of scenes that had genuine tension, especially one in particular involving a crane, and the last shot of the movie actually gave me chills, which I wasn't expecting. But overall, Tower Heist is probably the most OK, forgettable, time-filler movie I've ever seen. It's not bad, it's not good, it's just kind of there. Just decently entertaining whatever. I'm glad this review is over. C+ 3d

  •   chichiwawawa @moeco623 ウチの階下の人はお部屋を貸し出してて、フランス人カップルが気に入って長期で住んでます。彼女のお家はお洒落で綺麗だし、小さいけどお庭もあるからなあ。ウチは全然ダメです。モノ多過ぎて収集ついてないし ロンドン、高いですからね〜。名が通ってるようなホテルでも、スイートならともかく、普通の部屋は「使用人の部屋?(友人談)」な感じらしいです 日本だと古くて安くても、清潔感あって、アメニティ揃ってて滞在しやすいホテル、多いですけどね。英語も頑張って下さい 5d

Anyway, I do love this pic of @gabby3shabby & this was another one I did for her birthday earlier today. #gaboureysidibe #empire #teambecky #americanhorrorstory #towerheist #thebrothersgrimsby #precious #beautiful #happybirthday 3w
