DVD Tuesday: Kick-Ass Kicked Ass!
Kick-Ass didn't do nearly as well as I hoped and expected. Still, it's a hell of a lot of fun and Chloe Moretz found the role she was born to play (albeit at an incredibly young age which probably spells disaster for her career). To all the Nic Cage haters out there, I point you to the wonderful character that is Big Daddy! While The Ghost Writer wasn't a complete return to form for Roman Polanski, it was a solid thriller with an obvious but still satisfying twist of an ending. To any who doubt that Pierce Brosnan is a solid actor, check out this or, better, The Matador. A Prophet was very long and very foreign so it scared away a good amount of people from the theater. It is one that is definitely worth finding on DVD. Just be sure to clear a long Saturday.
