Dirty Grandpa: Average Guy Movie Review

Before we start I don't want to hear a load of crap about how this will never live up to De Niro's classics. This is not a review of Robert De Niro or his career, it's a review of his latest film Dirty Grandpa.

The film is about a widower (De Niro) who convinces his grandson (Efron) to drive him to Florida in an attempt to regain his youth (have sex) and show his grandson how to have fun. De Niro and Efron work well as grandfather and grandson, watching De Niro misbehave and humiliate Efron is hilarious. Watch out for Efron doing the Macarena! It's no Oscar winner but it is a fun film about remembering to enjoy life and not to let others make your choices for you! That said, if you watch Dirty Grandpa expecting Oscar material you're clearly an idiot...watch the trailer. The goal of this movie is to make people laugh, and maybe cringe. Both of which this movie achieves. 


Told you you'd cringe!

I went to the cinema expecting to laugh and that's exactly what I did. They haven't tried to make this movie more than it is; a very funny comedy about life, family, growing old and remembering to have fun along the way. If you want to watch a movie that isn't too serious and will make you laugh this is definitely a movie for you. My one complaint is that Danny Glover is only in one scene.

If this review helped or you liked the film please leave a comment and share this on Facebook and Twitter.

Breathe Easy: Average Guy Movie Review

Breathe Easy is an independent film, shot in multiple locations throughout ten countries. This global accomplishment took more than 20 directors roughly a year to make. Strange clouds have appeared in the sky across the globe and people are starting to behave in very strange ways. Governments are scrambling to deal with the crisis, but without knowing the cause, what can they do except...Breathe Easy? 



In a time when Hollywood studios can afford to film all over the world, it's easy for us to become indifferent. But an independent film shooting in ten countries including the UK, US, Australia and Hong Kong is an incredible achievement. And the results speak for themselves. Instead of focusing on one region or group during a global disaster - with small updates of events occurring elsewhere - the action is shared pretty much equally across all locations. It's an interesting look at how different people react to the same situation. Some will run, some will hide. Some will just ge…

Blade Runner: Black Out 2022 | Moustache Reaction

If you weren't excited about Blade Runner 2049 before, you certainly should be now. The longest and most informative of the three shorts, Black Out 2022 tells the story of a major event that had global consequences.
The roll out of the Nexus 8 - a new replicant with full human lifespans - saw the rise of human supremacy movements. These groups used the Replicant Registration database to identify and kill replicants. In response, a group of replicants sought to destroy the records, their actions led to the prohibition of their kind causing many to go into hiding.
Black Out 2022 is a brilliant piece of filmmaking! Not only is it well written, but the use of multiple animation styles make it both visually stunning and perfectly grounded in the Blade Runner universe. This spectacular short is a perfect bridge between Blade Runner and Blade Runner 2049.
Don't forget to check out the other two Blade Runner 2049 shorts:

Assassin's Creed - 1st January
