Gemma Bovery, Fatally Romantic

Gemma poster

Looking for a very cool romantic comedy for a night out, then look no further. Gemma Bovery opens today in select theaters and has a very good plot that will keep you intrigued, romantically tangled and completely entertained. At first I thought “Madame Bovary” the novel by Gustave Flaubert, a steamy sexually charged book that titillates and sets minds in forbidden dreams. Actually as the film opens there’s a direct relationship to the winsome story, but only in the mind of a man who in the twilight of his life has romantic thoughts and an imagination as impetuous as Flaubert.

SPY, a Novice Undercover

SPY poster

 

Just when you think you’ve seen the funniest comedy of 2015 up pops Spy a hilarious silly movie that entertains big time. The scrappy little film with a lot of raunchy dialogue had me in stitches from the outlandish beginning to the very last scene during the credits. Since it stars Melissa McCarthy, you may think I’m referring to her as she most always provides a good laugh, but how about pairing her up with the likes of Jason Statham. No way you say because he’s an action star and why would he be in a comedy? Well, it’s genius that he’s cast in Spy as his performance gets so off-the-wall that it takes the film to another comedic level.
