Fresh off of this year’s Sundance Film Festival, the fantastically weird sci-fi comedy Sorry To Bother You. The synopsis from Anapurna Pictures reads “In an alternate present-day version of Oakland, telemarketer Cassius Green (Lakeith Stanfield) discovers a magical key to professional success, propelling him into a macabre universe”. I love original movies and this definitely fits the bill in offering a much different perspective all while looking hilarious. I’m jealous of those who got to see this at Sundance and also this year’s SXSW Film Festival. For the rest of us, Sorry To Bother You will be released on July 6th, 2018.
The problem with this one was that the only character worth caring about was Kong himself. There way too many characters here which made them difficult to care about and made the story go in many different directions, however, the great cast did the best with what they had which admittedly wasn’t much. The film definitely nailed Kong and his world which at least made it bearable to watch. I also missed the post-credits scene. (original review)
This had a great cast but this romantic comedy was ultimately sunk by a mediocre script, extremely convoluted story, and several tone shifts within a sub 90 minute running time. (original review)
