You knew the buzz around the Green Hornet had to be bad when they moved the release date to the death month of January and it turns out that the reviews hold up to the bad buzz. As for The Dilemma, I can’t remember where I read it, but someone mentioned that Vince Vaughn looks very much like Kevin James, which is quite true and disturbing.
The Green Hornet The Dilemma
The Green Hornet Directed: Michel Gondry Starring: Seth Rogen, Jay Chou, Cameron Diaz, Christoph Waltz, Edward James Olmos, David Harbour, Tom Wilkinson Trailer
Synopsis: After goofing off on his dad’s money most of his life, a wealthy man decides to fight crime after his father is murdered.
My Take: It doesn’t seem super original with all the other superhero movies that have been made, but it still looks like a lot of fun.
RT Score: 45% RT Consensus: It’s sporadically entertaining, but The Green Hornet never approaches the surreal heights suggested by a Michel Gondry/Seth Rogen collaboration.
The Riches Channel: FX Time: 10/9c Premieres: Tue, Mar 18 Starring: Eddie Izzard, Minnie Driver, Noel Fisher, Shannon Woodward, Aidan Mitchel, Todd Stashwick, Margo Martindale, Gregg Henry, Jared Harris Trailer
Synopsis: The family witnessed an accident that left another family dead. They took their identities and rich way of life by moving into their new house in a gated community. Everything came to a head last season and the family is hitting the road, but the family got too used to their rich life and aren’t sure they want a life on the road again.
My Take: The show was a slow going last season at the beginning and a bit out there at times, but it did get better. Eddie Izzard and Minnie Driver really sold the show. I loved how they pulled off what they did and then how it all came crumbling down at the end. They have quite a mess to get themselves out of this season.
