Movie Review – Stowaway

Director: Joe Penna Starring: Anna Kendrick, Toni Collette, Daniel Dae Kim, Shamier Anderson Year: 2021 Stowaway is like Arctic (Joe Penna’s only other feature film) combined with Life (a space adventure film that I thought was much stronger than the throw-away treatment it was afforded).  With Arctic, Penna was able to give us quiet action

Movie Review – Your Highness

Director: David Gordon Green Starring: Danny McBride, James Franco, Natalie Portman Year: 2011 News flash; Danny McBride isn’t funny.  Of the “ganja gang” of comedians like Franco, Rogen, Jay Baruchel, Jonah Hill, Evan Goldberg, Judd Apatow, etc, he’s the least funny by a mile, and his entire persona just weirds me out.  He’s cocky, icky,
