Movie Reviews: Bad Grandpa.5 + Jackass The Movie + The Mitchells Vs The Machines 👎👎👎

Bad Grandpa.5 (2014)

Johnny Knoxville in old age makeup goes on a roadtrip with a kid. Knoxville looks like Stan Lee in his makeup. He drives a golf cart into a water trap in this 'Jackass' spinoff. There is no intensity or tempo. Scorn is heaped on Knoxville by strangers. This means absolutely nothing. He and the kid do a malicious campaign to annoy. This was atrocious with a few laughs.

Best Lines:

“Penguin guy.”

“Kept generating footage.”

Jackass The Movie (2002)

Untold harm, destruction, pain and suffering are inflicted on idots – one of whom is a future mental case. Another is a future DUI. There are harrowing stunts as the gang shun dignity. The stunts escalate in frquency and potential lethality. This was once a defining cultural force.

Jackass – Where are Bam Margera, Johnny Knoxville et al now?

The Mitchells Vs The Machines (2021)

Katie doesn't fit into her family. She has been accepted to the California College Of Film. Her father is dismal, her mother is a doormat and her brother is an idiot. There is no broader discourse. The father is abhorrent and the robots take over which a grim theme.

This was inadequate and so obviously American. Katie is overlooked by her father. This was unfruitful. Family unity is simply not to be until it is. This was dismal and implausible. There is a lack of satisfaction. The father is a tool who undermines and ignores his daughter.

Nobody is motivated. There are lies, subterfuge and mendacity. Events conspire to distract from the robot apocalypse. It is absolutely unbelievable how very disheartening and sappy this is. There are unintended impacts by a tech saviour who doomed humanity. One cannot be scathing enough about this. Something has gone badly wrong. Things can and do get much worse.

There is a crisis the father is deeply unpopular. This was stagnant with no alleviation. There are vagaries. Happiness is increasingly unattainable. The father has reverential piety for himself. This casues impatience. There is pervasive danger and problematic impulses. This was loud.

Robots are calculating. The father is gruff and impatient. Robots plan a national victory. This was bright and the robots aren't of paramount concern. This was dreadful with ignored immediate implications. This was muddled. The father is useless and lumpen with a limited grasp on reality.

This was disappointing. Strange unsettling events unfold. There are absurd outrages. There are brutal, tense interactions. There is no hard naturalism or terrible sacrifices. Katie is a non-conformist. There is no reasonableness. This was sap. The father is challenged and held to account for the terrible hurt he has caused. There are no profound regrets. Anger is atriculated. He has had toxic effects. Danny McBride and Maya Rudolph and Oliva Coleman are part of the voice cast. This will have no cultural legacy. This was unambitious and disappointing. There is no intellectual force. There are emotional changes.

Intruder (2021) 1x01

Sam and Rebecca Hickey (Elaine Cassidy of 'Harper's Island') live in the West Country in this Channel 5 drama. Their paradise is shattered when 2 intruders break in. In a paranoid rage, Sam kills one. The couple then stage the scene to make it look like self defence. There are annoying people who can't act or make sensible decisions. The husband is a crazy person. These people are really bad. This was incoherent crap.

Seed Money

Adam Brody and Martin Freeman sweating on a treadmill star in this risible and utterly incoherent drama. People face moral scrutiny. There is shagging and not even bearably mediocre. There is a rancid money grubbing culture. Martin Freeman does a terrible US accent. This was not original and unseemly business goes on.

There are complicit authorities and I've no idea what is going on. This causes complete indifference and incomprehension. One will forever be in the dark as to WTF this is about. Activities that aren't legal or moral take place. This is acceptable cultural activity? There is no sense of threat. People are so legally entangled.

Egotistical men who need reputation fixes lurk. People are pushed to the limit. There is talk of money laundering and prohibted methods. This was not hailed or celebrated. This does not thrive. What is the end game? What is the big picture? This was dreadful and full of ungrateful useless people.

There are no ethics just unimaginable suffering. This was appalling. There is brute force and incompetence and reckless and irresponsible types. There is financial irregularity and no compelling anguish just reckless morons. This does not inspire confidence. There is an ignoramus and connections. This was chaotic and not eloquent. This was shocking inadequacy and there is no dignity. There are dreadful inhabitants and nobody is sincere sounding. There is no quality or effectivness.

Best Lines:

“Do you want to be my friend?”

“Thought you were better than that.”

“Me too.”

“You don't talk over me! You don't do that!”

“Considering who that money belongs to.”

“You don't like anyone.”

“Get out!”

“This is my house!”

“How about a job?”

“I'm out of cash.”

“Big suprise there!”

“Tried to atone.”

“Owe some very dangerous people.”

“I let that molly popping Key rat cum inside me for a year!”

Trial By Fire

Face, Hannibal and BA have finally been caught and face court martial. Robert Vaughn lurks being sinister. David Ackroyd of 'Deadly Lessons' and 'The Dark Secret Of Harvest Home' prosecutes. The military court is curmudgeonly. Will the gang be convicted for their violent and heroic action? The irritating new character Frank won't go away. This season was doomed to be brief. Why isn't Murdoch arrested? Stockwell (Vaughn) and his sunglasses lurks.

BA flips a table. The A Team do not help themselves. Faces from the past show up. Hannibal won't stop grinning and gurning. They face impending defeat as their acts are laid out in the relentless detail. The crime they were orginally convicted for was robbing the Bank Of Hanoi. George Peppard is given a few lines that shows he is a great actor. Menawhile Murdoch and Frankie walk around in camo being loud and stupid.

Hannibal and Face and BA do something stupid. Nobody has a military haircut. The trio are sentenced to detah by firing squad. David Ackroyd has a nice voice. This was okay.

“Ever watch 'Perry Mason' Face?”


Molly has paranoia and John has disapproval. This was old fashioned done in clockwork fashion and the characters and lines and plot are uncanny and weird. Goran Visnjic and Hiroyuki Sanada and Grace Gummer and Camryn Manheim co star. John is unseeing of Molly's distress.

This was not twisty or brilliant or absorbing or thrilling or powerful or ingenious or exciting or memorable. This was not even interesting. John is saturated with ambition and smug. This was not complex. There is deceit. Nobody is a once in a generation talent. Ethan is a robot not a child. Nobody has a personality. There is talk of a neuro virus and a faked death.

This was ridiculous artifice. People are unaffectionate. This was bleak and what are the astronauts seeing? This was barely intelligible. This lacks conviction. Nobody watches this with bated breath. Molly has brittle hesitancy. Molly's boss has spiteful triumph or does he? This was twee. Am I hate watching this already?

Molly's not very afraid. Are people talking about aliens? This is drifting into boredom and indifference. There is a secret. Will there ever be a conclusive explanation?

Best Lines:

“Secrets are mean.”

“We were the experiments!”

“Been dead for almost 30 years.”

“Had a psychotic episode in space.”

Wish You Were Here

Molly is lied to. Ethan is creepy and weird. John is angry people don't want Ethan near their children. John's co-worker is creepy and weird. John learns Ethan is a creepy freak and makes it all about Molly. Lord I hate him. Molly legs it. This was stupid.

Best Lines:

“Right and wrong decision trees.”

“Too much oversight for a covert programme.”

“He's a toaster with hair.”

The Russian Knot

Liz killed someone, the cliffhanger ending of 8x14 came to naught and Liz tries to prove Red is Russian or something. What became of the whole Ilya plot? Liz steals and fights her old team. Liz and Ressler face off. This was useless. Everything is about Red always. People are idiots.

Best Line:

“I am not the enemy here, he is.”
