The Yes Men Fix the World
- Sorry skjerva. I can totally see what these guys are trying to do, and I guess for some nice socialist bonding it works, but for the most part the whole film just felt like an elongated of Penn and Teller without as much charm. I suppose it's nice enough for a documentary, and it serves its purpose of taking on the free market, which raises some genuine concerns, but for the most part the subject material is completely passable and mostly forgettable. The film has a few high moments, and the in between scenes are fun to look at, but it gets formulaic and dull at times despite being rather riveting in other scenarios.

- Here is another film that I have very little to actually discuss. The story here is pretty damn captivating and mighty great when it actually focuses on the John Malcovich, who gives one Hell of a performance, and does not concern itself with the silly romance between Colin Hanks and that other lady the film is pretty great. Nothing revolutionary or anything, but a nice bit of escapist enjoyability with a few heavy themes. Sadly, the Hanks discovering himself and the Buck Howard resurrection stuff is handled far too predictably and the visual stamp on the film is nothing to gawk at, making for an ultimately lack luster film. Sure you can do considerably worse, and there is a good deal of enjoyment to be had, plus the actual material here is pretty great as is the supporting cast, but ultimately the film falls flat.
