Entourage

LET’S HUG IT OUT BITCH! Because Vinnie Chase and the boys are back in town! Entourage is back and this time we are taking it to the big screen ladies and gentlemen. For those that don’t know, Entourage was a series on HBO that revolved around an actor who made me big and brought his friends from New York with him out to Hollywood. Loosely based on Mark Wahlberg’s adventures and life in Hollywood, It ran for 8 seasons, some say 2 seasons 2 long, and was kind of defined as Sex in the City for men. John Campea, formally of AMC Movie Talk, called it Lifestyle porn which I think is a very accurate explanation of what we love about this franchise. Yes I said franchise, because I hope that we get Entourage 2, because this one is that good.

Entourage pretty much picks up a week or two after the series’ ends. Now I won’t spoil anything, but it follows the efforts of Ari Gold, played by Jeremy Piven, as he tries to secure more money for star client Vinnie Chase, played by Adrian Grenier, for his over budgeted directorial debut film. The entire cast returns from the show including Kevin Dillon, Kevin Connolly, Jerry Ferrara, Perrey Reeves, Rex Lee, Debi Mazar, Constance Zimmer, and Emmanuelle Chriqui. Among them new comers include Billy Bob Thornton, Haley Joel Osment, Kid Cudi, Emily Ratajkowski, Ronda Rousey, and Mark Cuban (Cuban is just a brief cameo, but it’s Cuban, I’m mentioning him.) Among them, you also get numerous cameos that I will not spoil here, but believe me, there are too many to count.

The film is a lot of fun. It really goes back to the basics of the show, and just puts you in the lives of these characters. I’ve recently been rewatching the series’ in anticipation for the film, and it really reminded me of the first and second season, which I think was best. The cameos, the party’s, the one liners. They are all there, and all fun. It also does a really good job of both hinting at minor details from the show, while also giving you a lot of through backs. It even takes the time to use small but effective dialog to tie up all loose ends and questions a true fan of the show would have while watching

That said, you don’t have to be someone who watched the show to enjoy this film. It definitely helps, but it isn’t a complete necessity. Through clever dialog and plot devices they catch up and give you everything you need to know, and it helps in making the film very enjoyable, even for the casual movie going audience.

As far as negatives go, I can honestly say I do not have too many. And the ones I do have are a little nitpicky. There is not a real underlining threat in the film. Throughout the show Vinnie is always faced with a good amount of drama that he must overcome and deal with, I never felt worried for him throughout this. There is a minor storyline with E that really gets invested and into it, but is wrapped up very quickly. The film is rated R, as should be, but the show had its use of language. However, I didn’t feel we lived up to the vulgarity of the show. As far as naked girls go though, they definitely lived up. There is also one minor continuity issue that being a crazy fan that I am I picked up on, but it’s not that big of a deal. I won’t tell you, I’ll let you see if you picked it up.

Other than that, Entourage is a great freaking movie. It was so much fun. I was literally smiling from ear to ear the entire film. I got to see it early for a press screening, and I enjoyed it so much that I will be going back to give the film my hard earned cash to support it. And I suggest you do to. You will not be disappointed. I’m giving Entourage and full .5 bonus for doing such a wonderful job taking me back into that world. With a score of 4.2 plus its bonus, that is going to be a 4.7 on the Jeebus Scale. So what say you Jackass Nation? Are you excited for Entourage? Where you a fan of the show? Who is your favorite character? Mine is of course, Ari Gold.

The Jeebus Score explained

The Jeebus score is out of a possible 6 points. Films are giving a max of 1 point each for Acting, Entertainment, and Casting, and a max of .5 for Dialog, Cinematography, and Direction. There is also a possible bonus up to .5. Any film between 2.5 and 4 is considered a good film. 4-5 is a great film. Anything over 5 is an incredibly amazing film. To get a perfect score of 6 a film will pretty much have to be The Empire Strikes Back or The Godfather.

The boys are back in town!

The Iconic action stars of the 80s are back again. And this time they brought along even more fun. 80s, 90s, and even todays stars! The Expendables is a franchise that keeps growing in numbers. They are not known for their story driven cinema, or their Oscar winning performances. Its action. Nonstop, popcorn fun, action. I don’t go to these films expecting to be blown away by the script. Just the fun of seeing the stars I grew up on kicking ass! And that’s what they have delivered. The worry, is that now, The Expendables going into their 3rd film, have gone from a hard R rating, to a PG-13 in an attempt to broaden their audience. A risk if you ask me. I am the demographic for these films, if they try to gain a younger audience, they risk losing the audience they have. So was the risk worth it, well, I’d say yes it was.

This go around the Expendables return, Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Randy Couture, Terry Crews, and Arnold Schwarzenegger. This go around they are joined by the likes of Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, Kelsey Grammer, Kellun Lutz, Ronda Rousey, Glen Powell, Victor Ortiz, Robert Davi, Mel Gibson, and Han Solo himself, Harrison Ford. Once again written by Sylvester Stallone and directed this go around by Patrick Hughes. After the first 2, I love both installments. And actually believe the 2nd is better. The puns are great, the action if awesome. And the 3rd installment doesn’t really disappoint.

The story follows Barney Ross, as he trades in his old brethren for a younger team, in hopes to spare the lives of his Expendables. He goes up against a founding father of the Expendables, Conrad Stonebanks (Gibson) after the extraction of Stonebanks goes wrong, Barney and must once again enlist the back up of his brothers at arms.

Right of the bat, Gibson is the best thing about this film. He tows the line of crazy and psychopath so well, proving himself to still be one of the premier actors in the game. I for one hope this resurrects his career because it was fun seeing him again. There is a scene toward the middle of the film where he explains his motives to Stallone, it is almost chilling to watch Gibson upstage everyone.

If Gibson is the best part of this film, Banderas is a close second. As a nearly comic relief character, he channels his Desperado days and adds immense amount of humor and fun. You don’t know whether you want to kill this guy or die of laughing yourself. Rousey was used perfectly. Think Gina Carano in Fast 6. Snipes looked great, and makes me hope for a Blade 4. Harrison Ford takes over for Bruce Willis in this role, and actually doesn’t phone it in like Willis’ Church character in the past.

The PG-13 rating doesn’t necessarily hurt the film. Yes there are times when you wish there was terribly fake blood spatter. But they don’t skimp on the action! however if you watch closely you kind of see that there was probably blood in the original cut and makes you think there will be a director’s cut DVD.

There is an actual bit of character development in this film. The 2nd act of the film spends most its time developing the newbies, and Banderas. Problem is, that’s not why we are there. I want random explosions. I don’t necessarily need the details. It almost drags a bit in the film, but then the 3rd act hits and we back to what we want from these films.

In the end, if you want deep story, logic, and believability, then yes you are going to whine and cry about this movie. But if you can sit back, and enjoy the stars we grew up and some new faces, doing what they do best, then you are going to have a Good time at the theater. That’s right, thanks to a .2 bonus for a throwback Arnold “Get to tha choppa” line, I’m giving Expendables 3 a Jeebus score of 4.1.
