In the Loop was recommended by a co-worker after I mentioned Peter Capaldi was going to be the new Doctor in Doctor Who. I had known that Capaldi was in a British satirical comedy show called “The Thick of It" but had never watched it before. When I learned that In the Loop was not only a spin-off of the show but easier to digest I thought it would be a great jumping off point.
In the Loop focuses on the British Minister for Internal Development, who makes a misaligned comment on a radio show in regards to war in the Middle East. This comment spins out of control by both the UK and US who latch onto the comment about an unforeseeable war. The film is heavily political while maintaining a clear point about the incapable political offices.
Peter Capaldi’s character of Malcolm Tucker (who he plays in The Thick of It) was fantastic. It’s a great character and well written, there are a lot of moments of the film that do drag on here and there that are saved by hilarious lines delivered by Capaldi.
In the Loop is not for everyone - the pace of the film is slow, but I thought it was a nice counterpoint to a lot of the in-your-face comedies I’ve been watching lately. I’ve made a point to go back and watch The Thick of It, along with Veep (also created by director Armando Inannucci).

I don’t usually like posting double trailers in a row - but this looks great. I’m not a huge fan of the stories in these films, but the action looks like it will keep my attention.

Wow - why can’t I get a Batman CG film like this? I’d be very happy with 90 minutes of this.
To be honest - I was let down by Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2. I had a lot of love for the first film, which came largely from the involvement of Phil Lord and Christopher Miller (Clone High, 21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie). Both Lord and Miller are absent from this sequel and the baton is passed to the director of “Open Season 3” and multiple TV writers who crafted what I’m sure was a screenplay that was re-written twenty or more times.
What we’re left with in Cloudy 2 is something that feels very “unlike” the first film. This sequel is less engaging and aimed toward a much younger audience. The puns are groan-inducing instead of funny, and the attempt to re-connect to the same energy and story of the first film doesn’t pay off.
If there’s something I can commend the film on, it is the animation - which is beautiful. The landscapes are impressive and the stylized designs lend themselves successfully to the rest of the world that the characters inhabit. This film is much more rich in colours and is fully fleshed out. I’d honestly recommend the film if you’re watching it with a younger crowd or need to babysit, but it does not live up to the impressive first film.
Finally nipped my ramen craving yesterday. Meg had the Shoyu ramen with gyoza and I had the Toroniku ramen. (at Hokkaido Ramen Santouka らめーん山頭火)

I’m sure that to a certain extent I’m a bad person for the fact that I can’t watch “Curb Your Enthusiasm”. Every time I see a clip, I find it very funny. I just relate too much to Larry David. I often see eye-to-eye with his arguments and get incredibly frustrated with the other characters in the show. It just hits too close to home.
Clear History feels like a long episode of Curb - Larry plays the same type of character and there are many familiar faces. The plot centres on “Nathan” (played by David), a marketing executive who leaves an electric car company that he started with “Will” (played by Jon Hamm) after a disagreement about the name of the car. Nathan changes his name and moves far away after finding out he had missed out on a billion-dollar idea. The rest of the film unfolds in very much the same way as a Curb episode with lots of complaining and contradictions.
I did enjoy Clear History and think as a shorter, packaged deal, I can stomach the same type of deprecating humour as Curb. If there’s one positive takeaway from the film it’s that I really want to now go back and give the show a second chance.
