God Bless America
A very short while ago (last Friday night @ 10 PM to be exact), I watched Bob Goldthwait on Bill Maher talking GOD BLESS AMERICA. Soon to arrive @ theaters (as a small, very small indie release). Sounded like my kind of 'shock the monkey', push-the-envelope kind of movie. Imagine my shock when I saw it scheduled (before small theater # release) on HDnet (directTV) last night @ 8:30 PM EST. i watched it. I enjoyed it.
With all the hoopla on RED STATE (K. Smith), a short while back (and I did like RED STATE) -- I thought I would throw this movie out there for discussion. A masterful ANGRY movie! Very dark humor. Played in a somewhat realistic mode. Comments?
The only three movies that I have viewed this year as first release movies were John Carter 3D (twice) and The Avengers (@ first showing before the theater got crowded) in 3D on the biggest screen I could find (big budget blockbusters) and GOD BLESS AMERICA (small budget on my 73" HD set at home). All were very good and I enjoyed all three movies -- but after all is said and done... GOD BLESS AMERICA stuck in my skull the longest...
Good for Goldthwait! A new cult feature! A new MUST SEE...
