Swiss Army Man: A WTF Movie With an Unexpected Sweetness and Cool Extras!

swiss-army-man-dvd

There are movies that come out of nowhere and delight some while totally disgusting others. A movie that features a flatulent corpse and a suicidal castaway might just be that.

Swiss Army Man has come to home video and it gets the kind of package a WTF movie deserves – including a commentary track so that answers the question, what the heck were they thinking?

IMPERIUMfinalposter

Daniel Radcliffe is having quite a summer what with Swiss Army Man and Now You See Me 2 being two of the better films of the season.

Swiss Army Man: Way More Than a Just Boy and His Farting Corpse Jet Ski!

swiss-army - aw crap he's dead

Even before we meet the odd couple who constitute 95% of Swiss Army Man, we are given hints of the oncoming oddness through the credits as various ‘send help’ notes drift by on increasingly curious and elaborate vessels – including one that ends with the exclamation, ‘I AM SO BORED!’

Then we get to the meet incredibly uncute between suicidal castaway Hank and waterlogged corpse Manny and the fart and penis jokes commence – but if you stick with it, Swiss Army Man becomes a vehicle for existential angst, meditations on love, friendship and life itself (however twisted and insane they might be). It might even be considered a superhero spoof (but I’m not saying another word about that – Except the word superpowers…).

Flatulent Trailer: Swiss Army Man!

swiss_army_man_poster_large

I haven’t seen the U.S. trailer yet, but the Canadian trailer for Swiss Army Man lives up to the film’s plot – a suicidal castaway finds a flatulent corpse on a beach and it saves his life.

Seriously.

Paul Dano (Love & Mercy) plays the castaway and Daniel Radcliffe (Horns) is the corpse (insert acting joke here…). Check out the hysterical trailer after the break. Swiss Army Man opens on July 1st.

Igor – I Mean Victor Frankenstein – Not Worth The Wait!

victor-frankenstein-reimagining

When the movie Igor was announced and James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe were attached, the premise – the story of Frankenstein told from the point of view of his assistant, Igor – I thought, ‘What a great premise!’ When the film’s title was changed to Victor Frankenstein, I thought, ‘That kinda makes sense – everyone knows who he is; almost no one really thinks about Igor.’

Then we got a cool a trailer and a few really cool clips. It was all good. And then it all came crashing down. Those cool moments form the trailer and the advance clips? They’re pretty much the sum total of the movie’s good moments.

The Trailer… IT’S ALIVE: Victor Frankenstein!

Victor-Frankenstein-Quiet, Please

It’s here and it’s alive! The trailer for the story we all know – told by the man who witnessed it all, Igor Strausman! Victor Frankenstein stars Daniel Radcliffe as Igor and James McAvoy as victor Frankenstein.

For a very different take on Mary Shelley’s classic tale, check out the American (introduced by McAvoy and Radcliffe) and UK (darker, moodier) trailers for Victor Frankenstein after the jump. Victor Frankenstein will be in theaters on November 25th.

Horns: Joe Hill’s Book Makes a Good, Creepy Movie!

DSC_0058.NEF

Horns is based on the novel by Joe Hill. It stars Daniel Radcliffe as Ig Perrish, broken-hearted young man who is believed by everyone in town to have raped and murdered his girlfriend, Merrin Williams. Things get weird when he awakens after a night of serious drinking with horns beginning to grow out of his forehead.

Written by Keith Bunin (In Treatment) and directed by Alexandre Aja (The Hills Have Eyes), Horns is a deeply disturbed, bleakly funny and frequently scary little film that gives Radcliffe another quality role.

What If The F Word Was Friend?

what-if-daniel-radcliffe

What If is the latest movie to tackle the question of whether a man and a woman can just be friends. Its subjects are Wallace (still, a year later, not able to get over a horrific breakup) and Chantry (an animator with a great boyfriend). Titled The F World everywhere except in the U.S. and the UK, the film is actually more deserving of the bland new title than the edgier original.
