The Grand Budapest Hotel by jaemskeray

Set in a fantastical and dark pre WW2 Europe, this farcical murder mystery is about a hotel concierge, played by Ralph Fiennes, who is accused of murdering his anciently old lover.  The story is told from the perspective of the hotel’s lobby boy, whom Ralph takes a shinning to, and who is along for the whole crazy ride.  It was a bit of a slow burn at the beginning setting everything up, but once it got going, oh man was it amazing.  Visually, its the most beautiful movie I have ever seen, watch the video below to see how they made some of the shots.  Anderson’s best movie so far.  Required Viewing.

Did anyone know that they made another Predator sequel? In this one, a group of humans awake to find themselves being hunted by…well, you know the drill.  The movie finds some success by mostly parroting the original, re-hashing Alan Silvestri’s iconic theme music, and providing a few fun plot twists.  The casting is enjoyable and bizarre. (Adrien Brody as a muscle bound mercenary? Where did Topher Grace and Laurence Fishburne come from?) It’s surprisingly watchable — even worth checking out for hardcore Predator fans.
