Review: Office Christmas Party

Will you be laughing in Office Christmas Party or not?
When you see the names Jason Bateman, Jennifer Aniston, T.J. Miller and Kate McKinnon on the movie poster, you're aspecting the movie to be off the chain funny. The issue is that when we aspect the movie to be 'off the chain' funny, that we raise the movie to a higher standard. This movie was funny for sure, but because of the cast and the expectations I wanted the movie to be even funnier.

Kate McKinnon's character was the funniest character in the movie, now maybe that was because it seemed like she was playing a funny character from Saturday Night Live, or maybe (if you don't watch SNL and see her preform) it was because we don't expect her to be the funniest person on that script.

Jennifer Aniston and T.J. Miller as siblings was one of the funnier things in the movie. The things Jennifer Aniston did to T.J. Miller was so unexpected that you get caught up into it and find it funny.

The issue here was we didn't see the actual Office Party that much. Once the main character (TJ Miller) got sad, the movie quickly shifted to focus on him, and the party was left for us to be unwatching it. Yes, unwatching it. We probably missed the funnier party's of the party. Maybe this was on purpose, so you want to buy the bluray to see all the extras at the party so you can see what was missed.

All in all this movie was funny. I did find myself laughing at most of the parts. If youare willing to laugh at anything, you will like this movie then. Maybe just lower you expectations, then you will be willing to laugh at everything this movie has to offer.

Stay through the credits for some b-roll footage.

Review: Miss Sloane

Miss Sloane brings politics to the front line.
If you follow actors, then you know when you see Jessica Chastain on the bill for a movie, you might be thinking to yourself that this movie will be a good movie, and an award contender. You would be right on both accounts. Jessica Chastain is what makes this movie good. The way she carries her character along in the movie is what brings the movie to the fore front.

If you're thinking that you are over with politics after this elect, I would agree with you. I'm thinking this movie should have been released last year at this time, when the Presidential race was just starting. I'm thinking it will be hard to follow this movie after the craziness we all have just been through.

The beginning of the movie is hard to follow. It picks up really fast, which usually is a good thing because then it keeps the movie going. However, with a political drama, they need to slow down so the audience can catch up.

One of the issues I had in this movie is they had Jake Lacy have a southern drawl. To me it just seemed hard to believe as we have seen him in other shows without one, and it seemed forced. Think of his days on The Office. It's just hard to image Pete with that accent.

If you like Politics, then this movie may just be for you. If you are over all the politics after everything we have been through, then maybe skip this movie for now and catch it at a later date.
