#240: Jeff, Who Lives at Home (2011)

WHEY! A special audio review for the Duplass Brothers’ Jeff, Who Lives at Home. Stick it in your ears, dears!

It’s nice to have friends, isn’t it? It’s even nicer when they’re willing to not only watch a movie with you, but also rustle up a little casual review of said film. I have such friends, and this is our casual review of Jeff, Who Lives at Home.

I must stress the blitheness of this review. We left our critical thinking caps at my doorstep, gorged out on sugary treats and OD’d on nicely labelled, but ultimate lacklustre brewskis. It’s pretty much inkeeping with this bonged-out film, to be fair. A post-mumblecore mumbler from the king mumblers the Duplass brothers. (Try to) Enjoy.

★★★★☆☆

Jeff, Who Lives at Home is available on DVD worldwide from Monday 17th September.

123: The Muppets (2011)

Sex faces, all round.

The second installment of my puppeteer binge is an all the more personal one. Although Being Elmo was an enjoyable, all-American documentary about the famously tickle-binging Sesame Street character, I’ve always sided more with the cheeky chappy meandering of the Muppets. That’s right, I’m a Gonzo boy.

This latest Muppets film from last year is made with fanboy heart and sincerity by director James Bobin, and writers Nicholas Stoller and Jason Segal (yes, he the actor). Delicately fondling the timeless characters’ of Kermit, Ms Piggy, Fozzie Bear, and even that grumpy blue bird Sam the Eagle, this is a fun, frolicking film which will appeal to kids and adults like.

In short, if you like nice things, you should see this nice thing.
