Day 225: Sausage Party (2016)

Sausage-PartyIf there was ever a concept for a movie that sounded absolutely ridiculous then today’s film would definitely be that. The film that I chose for today is none other than the new animated film Sausage Party. All a piece of food, beverage, or product at a supermarket ever dreams about is being chosen so that they can go to the other side with the customers. What they don’t realize is the horrors that await them and one sausage by the name of Frank (Seth Rogen) tries to warn them as he too looks for the truth about his existence. The film also stars Jonah Hill (The Wolf of Wall Street) as Carl, Kristen Wiig (Despicable Me 2) as Brenda, Paul Rudd (Ant-Man) as Darren, Edward Norton (Birdman Or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)) as Sammy, Danny McBride (Eastbound and Down) as Honey Mustard, Craig Robinson (Hot Tub Time Machine) as Grits, Nick Kroll (The League) as Douche, Bill Hader (Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs) as Firewater, James Franco (This Is The End) as Druggie, Selma Hayek (Desperado) as Teresa, Michael Cera (Scott Pilgrim Vs The World) as Barry, David Krumholtz (Slums Of Beverly Hills) as Lavash, and the film was directed by Greg Tiernan (Thomas And Friends) and Conrad Vernon (Monsters Vs Aliens).

840906_185Spoiler Alert: There may be information contained in this Article that could potentially spoil the plot of the film so continue with caution or do not read any further if you do not want to know.While Sausage Party could either be the stupidest idea in the world that is just funny as hell or it could be the dumbest idea and movie. While I thought that it was definitely one of the funniest movies of the year, it definitely was a propaganda film for Seth Rogen and Co. The film is propaganda for Rogen and co to basically say FU to religion, sexual stereotypes, and more. The whole film, they believe that the God is allowing them to be chosen to go to the other side which is supposed to be glorious, but Frank ends up discovering that it’s not all that it’s cracked up to be and that there isn’t a God after all in his opinion. He treats the rest of the food like their all cattle because they refuse to go against their beliefs. Then there’s the innuendos like Sammy the Jewish bagel trying to get along with Lavash who is obviously middle eastern because he believes that Heaven contains 72 bottles of virgin oil. Then there is something special at the end that is his FU to people that are tolerant to people who choose to live a different lifestyle sexually. One of my favorite characters in the film by far is Douche who tells you like it is and drinks other products to get “juiced” up. One of my favorite scenes with him is when we see a pic of a women’s camel toe and he is describing to everybody how awesome it’s going to be to be inside her. Yes the film is VERY SEXUAL so be prepared for that and NO this is not a film you bring your young child to. Besides all the propaganda, I really loved the film and that is why I am going to give it an A- for a final grade. The propaganda and politically incorrect jokes is actually makes it funny in my opinion.

Day 203: I Saw The Light (2015)

dates_header-nowplayingI am a huge fan of films that are based on true stories because there is nothing better than things that actually happened. I am also a huge fan of music biopics because I am such a huge fan of music and so I took the opportunity to watch the film I Saw The Light for today. The film follows the legendary story of country music legend Hank Williams (Tom Hiddleston) who died at the age of 29. The film follows Hanks rise to fame in the short amount of time that he recorded music. The film also follows all of the hardships and problems that the fame caused with Hank whether it be his health or the hardships it caused on his marriages. The film also stars Elizabeth Olsen (Captain America: Civil War) as Audrey Williams, Bradley Whitford (Billy Madison) as Fred Rose, Cherry Jones (The Village) as Lillie Williams, Maddie Hasson (God Bless America) as Billie Jean Williams, Wrenn Schmidt (Our Idiot Brother) as Bobbie Jett, Will Beinbrink (Sin City: A Dame To Kill For) as Jim Denny, Josh Pais (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Dore Schary, David Krumholtz (Slums Of Beverly Hills) as James Dolan, and the film was directed by Marc Abraham (Children Of Men).

download (2)Spoiler Alert: Just in case, I am issuing a spoiler alert in case you didn’t want to know any information. So,proceed with caution. I wanted to start off by saying that I was very impressed with Tom Hiddleston and his acting in the film. He pulled off the southern accent like a champ and he sang all of the songs in the film and Elizabeth Olsen did as well. The whole time I kept thinking Loki is getting it on with Scarlet Witch, but it was a weird relationship (a lot of fighting). She was one of those wives who believes she had talent even though people were telling her she didn’t. That put Hank in a very tough spot. The most incredible stat is that Hank had 36 hits in I believe a six or seven year period. Think about that stat and look at artists today, it’ll take a lifetime for most to do that. Hanks life was in shambles and the film really explores that in depth more than his music itself. One of the questions I had for a while was why wasn’t Hank allowed back at the Grand Ole Opry and why was he kicked out in the first place? Apparently according to the film itself, it had to do with his drinking habit which is what Hank was sadly known for. It’s actually a very good film that any fan of biopics, country music, or Hank Williams himself should see it. I am going to give the film an A- for a final grade.
