A bunch of great release this week including an adorable robot, some actors turned soldiers and the return of Jack Bauer.
Pick of the Week: Tropic Thunder
Tropic Thunder is neck and neck with Step Brothers for the funniest movie of the year. Ben Stiller directs and stars as Tugg Speedman, an Arnold like Action Star who is the lead in the fictional Tropic Thunder movie alongside Robert Downey Jr’s oscar whore Kirk Lazerus and Jack Black’s comedian bad boy Jeff Portnoy. There’s some great supporting performances by Danny McBride, Matthew McConaughey, Brandon T. Jackson, Jay Baruchel, Steve Coogan and Nick Nolte. Argueably the best part of the movie though is Tom Cruise as the pissed off, overweight movie producer Les Grossman. There’s an unrated and regular version of the movie and there’s audio commentary from Downey, Black and Stiller. The best special feature however is probably “Rain of Madness” the fake documentary about the fake movie “Tropic Thunder”. German documentarian Jan Jurgen talks to the stars to find out the inside story on the most expensive movie ever made.
