Thank You For Smoking

Take a movie that would have felt fresh in 1980, sprinkle in some 2006 type annoying television-like storytelling structure, add a dash of excellent acting performances and you get this oh so haughty “satire.”

first of all, great idea about updating you movie and baseball blogs during the year!

so dan, what are you trying to say? I saw a preview for this when I saw Munich and I thought it looked hilarious. do you think I'd like it?

I totally agree. It felt a little bit like an HBO movie, but not even as deep as that. There's so much potential with the premise; unfortunately, possibility is basically where it stops.

You should be on TV or at least radio.

Assignment for you: Always attempt to capture a movie's essence in a one-multi-phrased-sentence.
