For the week of 7/9/2013 on Can’t Stop the Movies!

This Week On - The HostThis week is our return to form here at Can't Stop the Movies.  A trio of DVD reviews are on the way.  Look for Spring Breakers on Tuesday, The Host on Wednesday, and Admission on Thursday.

Andrew and Kyle pick up their look at the films of Oliver Stone with South of the Border, a documentary on the tumultuous governmental transitions in South America.

This weekend, Guillermo Del Toro attempts to return some enjoyment to the giant robot genre with Pacific Rim while Adam Sandler and director Dennis Dugan look to expand the epic Grown Ups saga with a sequel.

On Sunday we take a slight break to share appreciate figures important to us in media.  Ryan started off with Steven Spielberg in the first installment, and Andrew will talk about his love of Elias Koteas this week.

  1. By the way. Pacific rim looked GORGEOUS. The cast did something of a shaky job but there were things to admire about the movie. Specifically it looked awesome. Did I mention how good it looked?

    Of course there were various plot holes to deal with, there were technology misnomers abound (Nothing as bad as tony stark building a particle collider in his basement but still,) and, of course, there were very silly acting to deal with but it was still somewhat enjoyable. I look forward to seeing what Andrew thought of it.

    Also don’t see world war Z. Unless you want to see some very humorous zombie acting. Otherwise don’t see that movie.

    Don’t stop the movies!

    • I wish I took a closer look at things before posting them. So many mistakes X_X

      • No worries Austin, we love your comments here. I have to echo just how good Pacific Rim looked. I was worried that it was going to be hard to follow from the trailers but del Toro put his usual loving touch on everything and there was genuine heft to the fights. I didn’t think it was too bad in the plot hole department, but I did leave wondering how the split-pilot interface would work if the load is shared but still entirely on one hemisphere.

        Even with Ryan’s somewhat faint praise I’ll be skipping World War Z for now. I may give it an obligatory year-end look but that’s about it.

        Don’t stop the comments either 😎
