El Camino Christmas is a comedy about a young man who seeks out a father he’s never met and somehow ends up barricaded in a liquor store with five other people on Christmas Eve…
Directed by David E. Talbert; Dax Shepherd, Luke Grimes Jessica Alba and Vincent D’Onofrio play the main characters….
This one could be good but it could also not be. It has a seemingly understated quality to it that has me intrigued. The main reason I’m interested at all is Shepherd and Alba’s characters. Fingers crossed I’ll be pleasantly surprised.
Vincent D’Onofrio, Tim Allen, Kurtwood Smith, and Yimmy Yim also star.
Pierce Brosnan, Salma Hayek and Jessica Alba star in Some Kind Of Beautiful. A Tom Vaughn directed drama/ romance set in England and LA.
Some Kind Of Beautiful is unfortunately not the most well executed movie I’ve seen recently. Its ills include the dialogue, general execution – particularly the lines delivered by Malcolm McDowell and aspects of the story that just don’t make sense to me, in terms of the character’s motivations or lack there of.
I tuned in firstly because I was in the mood for an onscreen romance. Secondly I wanted to watch a movie that wasn’t too demanding of my attention and lastly, I love Salma Hayek, a gifted actress and all round very smart woman.
There are things I did enjoy about Some Kind Of Beautiful and they include the soundtrack, the relationship between the sisters and the sunny LA location. I love to travel, you see. Even when I have to do it using mainly my imagination. 🙂
Watch it if something about the movie strongly appeals or if you really, really must.
