In the last couple of years Bruce Willis has made about a half-a-dozen films that could be considered B-movies – most of which were fair-to-awful.
Once Upon a Time in Venice – the Blu-ray is in stores now – leans into the better than average zone. It’s a slight bit of noir-ish fun that finds the only licensed detective in Venice Beach trying to get his dog back – which is much harder (and more convoluted than you’d think).
Told from the point of view of a screenwriter (Chris Evans) who doesn’t believe in love anymore, Playing It Cool wants to be both hip and a screwball romantic comedy and never quite succeeds at being either – though it’s fun watching it try.
As one of the characters says in the trailer, ‘War is a first-person shooter.’ Good Kill is a unique war movie that looks at today’s drone warfare from the point of view of Tom Egan, a former combat pilot turned drone pilot, and asks just what does today’s warfare mean?
Ethan Hawke, January Jones, Zoe Kravitz and Bruce Greenwood star in Good Kill, from director Andrew Niccol (Gattaca). Check out the chilling trailer after the jump.
