HAIL, CAESAR: PRETTY TO LOOK AT, NOT SO PRETTY TO SIT THROUGH

It’s got a great cast and Technicolor visuals, but the Coen brothers’ movie Hail, Caesar! is as lame as the title. What could be more fun than a Hollywood studio loaded with stars and drama in 1951? The Coens drained most of the fun out of it with heavy doses of religion, morals and politics, but most of all, their elitist view of early Hollywood was just NOT FUNNY. It fell flat. Two redeeming features: Tilda Swinton’s Lilli Anne inspired suits, and a cute singing cowboy named Hobie, played by Alden Ehernreich (above) struggling to play a drawing room socialite.

    There aren’t any “heavy doses of religion, morals and politics”.
    There is satire of religion, morals and politics in this movie.

NEW UPDATE CHECK IT OUT - HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT!

  • HOLLYWOOD WHODUNIT:
    |

    This celebrity divorce came out of nowhere – the couple had seemed to be SO happy. Until, that is, the wife found out that her husband was quietly negotiating a settlement with a Hollywood madam. Her handsome husband had always had a wandering eye, but the forgiving wife flipped out when she learned that the Madam accused the husband of raping her and she threatened a lawsuit if he didn’t hand over some big bucks. ENOUGH she decided, and the wife immediately filed for divorce.
    Guess who!!!!
