I guess this is one of those movies that gets the one top hat rating but doesn’t go to the Most Unclean list. I guess someone might like this, but I sure didn’t. I realize that it is difficult to make a decent movie where everything takes place in one or two rooms (like this one) but this has to be one of the most boring movies that I have sat through in ages. I dipped into the “Thriller” queue on iTunes to get this one and I am not sure how the distributors think they can pass this off as “thrilling” – but I guess they did make three bucks off of me today. The acting? Not good. The dialogue? Not good. The setting? Ok I suppose. Pacing? Not good. Excitement? None. Well – something mildly exciting happens at minute 57. The score? Not good. The line delivery by the actors? Not good at all. The big twisty scene in the little one room hotel room where the “wingman” is telling “the husband” that he boned “the wife” and she hears and asks who he is talking to and he says “myself” and she believes him? Not good. The movie called Nowheresville? Not good.
An FBI accountant is given a field position because he botched something at a casino sting. This job requires him to sit in a hotel room for at least three weeks recording and listening to the folks in the other room, waiting to hear when “some money” is going to be dropped off. It should not surprise anyone that it’s the casino money from his previous, unfortunate assignment. Through the walls he hears them arguing and soon she’s knocking on his door. He reluctantly lets her in and soon they are in love and planning on stealing the loot and moving to Buenos Aires. Nothing at all happens for the next 30 minutes until the money shows up and the event I mentioned in the first paragraph occurs. We then get about one minute of un-thrilling action and plod to the end. For real, I got so bored during this that I started repairing a Christmas figurine and that was more eventful than Nowheresville.
NOTE: Hi everyone!! Thanks to some crafty thinking and swift decision making from @jeffreytjohnson I finally have working internet again and a functioning keyboard!! GOD DAMN!!! I don’t know HOW in the fucking world you guys do this shit on your phones….! #insanity
Anyway – THANK GOD!!! Thanks for all of the feedback on SHITFEST the other day! I got a bunch of commitments so now that I have a working machine, let’s roll with starting in July! Normally, my OCD and I cap things off at a clean month, but, let’s get loosey goosey and just roll with it as long as they keep coming in. If it’s only ten entries, it’s only ten entries, but everyone is going to get their own day even if we have to roll over into August. I still don’t know about the opening act but we’ll think of something.
Let’s do this thing!! GO SHITFEST GO!!!
Here’s a teaser:
