Starring: Jay Chandrasekhar, Steve Lemme, Kevin Heffernan, Tyler Labine, Emmanuelle Chriqui, Rob Lowe, Will Sasso, Brian Cox, Seann William Scott, Damon Wayans Jr., Linda Carter, Hayes MacArthurPlot: The borders between Canada and the United States have just been changed... also, a lot of other borders have been crossed.Review: So when I went into this movie, I was really afraid that it was going to be super crappy. I was terrified that it would be Anchorman 2, or even worse... Zoolander 2 (was it called 2lander?). I was skeptical right off the hop to be honest, but was VERY happily wrong with how it turned out.As with other movies, I'm going to do everything I can to not spoil this movie for you guys, but there will likely be some spoil seepage through the cracks. Not a pleasant thought, but here we are.The movies plot is pretty mundane with The main characters going into what is currently Canada, waiting for it to be "brought over" to American soil. But there are some other things happening in it, some drugs, some guns, some hookers, as we'd all assume from a cop movie.The soundtrack is pretty average too, some songs made by the Eagles of Death Metal, so if you like them you got that going for you.The things that really grab are the still very funny broken lizard guys, after Slammin' Salmon I was skeptical they'd lost it (Though i genuinely loved Club Dread, and thought Beer Fest was quirky and fun) and the amazingly cast/hilarious Canadians they got for the movie. I did not know Rob Lowe was Canadian (Spoiler, he's not.), nor did I know about Emmanuelle Chriqui, Will Sasso and Tyler Labine, so that was cool. Their French Canadian Mounties were phenomenal. There were a few parts of the movie that made me laugh so hard that I genuinely got a head ache.Spoiler!!!!!!: One of the scenes involves only the Mounties where Will Sasso is confusing Danny Devito with Danny Devito and it's angering Hayes MacArthur to the point that he storms out of the room, only to have Tyler Labine tell Sasso that MacArthur was right. Sasso then says "I know, I'm only doing this to fuck with him." Labine looks a little coy about it, but actually plays along a bit and I think confuses Danny Devito with Demi Lovato on purpose to anger MacArthur. 2 minutes of solid laughter.I think the best part of the movie isn't that we get to see all these guys again, but more that they all kept the spirit of the characters right. There weren't too many changes to characters, Farva is still a piece of crap that everyone hates, the chief is still a hard-ass who has the most fun. It's a very fun movie that lived up to the first one without going too overboard. Kept the plot simple and made it worthwhile. Too many sequels try to go way over the top and get even more dumb that the first ones (See the first movies I was afraid of this with).Full on opinion without spoiling, see this movie in the theatres, show support to the Broken Lizard team and make them some money.
Starring: Brian Cox, Emile HirschPlot: A father and son are tasked with performing an autopsy on an unknown person, but they find out more than they're asked of.Review: I am going to keep this review decently short as I don't want to give it away. But holy crap did I really enjoy this movie. Didn't hurt that I saw it in an old broken down (Ish) theatre, but this movie just hit on all cylinders for me.Emile Hirsch, who some of you may know from The Girl Next Door or Speed Racer does a great job as the son who is trying to get away from the business of dead bodies. He seems to be almost self aware of his role throughout the movie and plays his parts fantastically. Brian Cox is even better as the hard nosed father who is all about the business of dead bodies. He doesn't mess around and takes his job seriously.The colour were all done very well, with the Jane Doe being a luminous white that I almost thought could glow in the dark. On top of that, any blood not he body looks extra dark and violent because she is so white. The filming of the movie is done very well and doesn't try to aggrandize what it is, a small budget movie trying to do big things.The musical score in the movie was great as well, often times being very on the nose with what was going on, but other times being really subtle. They do that one type of music that's basically running fingers up a violin string until your ears need to be ripped off and it's done to perfection.A very scary movie that didn't have too many jump scares and wasn't long and drawn out at all. Don't get me wrong, there were some, but a lot of the movie was more reactionary towards creepy/supernatural things than jump scares.If you like horror movies, watch this movie. It's great and will not let you don at all. If you don't like horror movies (potentially like the two friends I saw this with), bring a scarf to cover your eyes, that helps I've been told.
