“Wild Hogs” is a fun adventure comedy about a few somewhat grown-up friends taking a road trip for the old times sake. It’s a not a bad movie at all, but whether you’ll enjoy it or not depends a lot on your mood. Gladly, I was in the mood for some light entertainment. And I had a blast. While there are a few places which are slow or silly, there are enough of those that made me laugh out loud. Overall it was worth it.
4 out of 5 from me and a solid recommendation for Friday evening entertainment.
A few days ago I watched “Fargo” once again. I saw it before, but couldn’t help falling asleep somewhere in the middle. Thanks to many pints of beer beforehand. This time though I was hooked and watch it through. And I really enjoyed it.
Like most other Coen brothers’ films, this movie is funny and sad, easy to watch, but with something to think about. It is an atmospheric masterpiece with splendid visuals. The soundtrack is great as well. Lots of good acting. And somehow, while having very simplistic appearances an slow pace, this film feels rich and enriching.
5 out of 5, highly recommended.
