Shoplifters of the World

Drama, Comedy | Streaming: March 26 | Theaters: March 26 | IMDb

Starring: Helena Howard, Ellar Coltrane, Elena Kampouris, Nick Krause, James Bloor, Thomas Lennon, Joe Manganiello

Synopsis: In the Summer of 1987, four friends, reeling from the sudden break-up of the iconic British band The Smiths, embark on a night out of partying to mourn their musical loss. At the same time, an impassioned Smiths fan takes a local radio DJ hostage at gunpoint and forces him to play nothing but Smiths tracks. With the radio station playing as the soundtrack to their night, the friends go on a wild journey of self-discovery that will transform them forever. Featuring an incredible soundtrack – including 20 songs from The Smiths – Shoplifters of the World is a glorious ode to the craziness of the ‘80s and the power of music to change people’s lives.

 

Cody’s Review: A payoff aways if you’ll pay the price of admission. Shoplifters of the World is set to the tune of The Smiths, both in pace and character — not to mention several songs. Even if you’re not familiar with the 80s English rock band, don’t worry, you don’t need to like or even know the music to get something from this film… but you do have to be patient. Events are set into motion when news circulates that The Smiths have broken up, an event that would mean little to the average person; however, it’s heartbreaking to those that idolized the band, and it sends our characters out seeking a night of drinking and partying to mourn the end of something special. Meanwhile, another character establishes the soundtrack by holding a radio station DJ hostage and demanding a continuous stream of The Smiths for all that would listen. While things will change, the first third of the 85-minute runtime comes across as shallow, indulgent, and flavorless. Characters with less depth than a sheet of paper were going through the motions of recycled movie plots from the 80s and 90s — I mean, it’s literally based on the urban legend that inspired the movie Airheads, but also steals from or directly references The Breakfast Club, High Fidelity, and even Reality Bites. It takes a while to become aparant, but this is a tribute to some of the messages The Smiths told through music and interviews. It’s not until the halfway point that the storyline grows up and sends our hapless players crashing headlong into their own personal battles, daring them to become honest with themselves. In the course of a few minutes, the dissociation and angsty oh-woe-is-me attitudes cease to define their personalities, and we get to see they’re fighting just to keep it together. Cult clichès of the time, such as radio stations, copying pop culture styles, and meaningless acts of rebelion become cultural establishments. However, it also portrays the people and lifestyle in ways that feel very true to life. I’ve been at the same parties, talking about the same things with the same people, albeit a little over a decade later — and while I know it wasn’t that great, I still remember those times fondly. Verdict: I started out thinking Shoplifters of the World would be a massive disappointment, but ended up loving it. Despite being overwrought and contrived, it brings to life a niche fantasy of an entire generation in a way that is neither niche or fantasy. It’s not a particularly joyful movie, but it leaves you feeling better by the end because we all want to care that much about something.

The Incredible 25th Year of Mitzi Bearclaw

Donny’s Bar Mitzvah

Comedy | Streaming: March 23 (Amazon Prime and iTunes) | IMDb

Starring: Steele Stebbins, John DeLuca, Danny Trejo

Synopsis: Sex, drugs, and a dysfunctional family create the perfect storm for Donny Drucker’s Bar Mitzvah. We are catapulted back in time to the year 1998 as we follow a colorful array of characters from the perspective of a hired videographer. Donny tries to enjoy the evening while juggling his crazy mother, his teenage angst, and his new girlfriend, Handjob Hannah. Meanwhile Gerald, the MC of the party, is on a mission to stop the notorious party pooper Val Dho who is attempting to ruin the party. All that, plus: scandalous affairs, love triangles, spin the bottle, and a man with ranch dressing for hands. But as per tradition, all must be resolved before the big song at the end of the night.

 

Cody’s Review: What the **** did I just watch? Donny’s Bar Mitzvah is an outlandish twist on the found footage style, presented as if a 90s-era videographer with a VHS camcorder shot a bar mitzvah with an assortment of people we all wish we could un-meet. The whole thing feels like a series of Saturday Night Live sketches chopped up into a 70-minute movie, complete with unnecessary yelling, overused bits, and celebrity(-ish) cameos — including Danny Trejo and Noureen DeWulf. Most of the jokes are juvenille without being funny, but the few that do illicit a laugh will leave you feeling a little worse about yourself. The camcorder-style footage looks about as realistic as an early Instagram filter, and there are gimmicks like pop-out comments and exaggerated sound effects usually involving objects being pushed into or extracted from bodily orifices. Is it the worst thing I’ve seen? Well, no… I had to sit through Bridget Jones’s Baby last year, so the bar is set pretty low. But is there any time I recommend watching Donny’s Bar Mitzvah? Actually, yes. The next time you throw a big house party (with plenty of alcohol), set this to play on repeat. It’s full of weird conversation starters, not interesting enough to draw anybody away from the party, and dumb enough that you can plant drunks in front of it to veg out. Verdict: Yikes.

Cody’s Review: It feels like forever since the last great MacGuffin chase, but Dark Web: Cicada 3301 delivers in spades. Start with the structure of National Treasure, mix in the tone and clever repartee of Lucky Number Slevin, toss with a heavy dash of True Lies story archs, and sprinkle with a bit of The Usual Suspects — now you have a recipe for a great ride with plenty of laughs, intrigue, action, and most importantly, characters. The cast list isn’t as prolific as those other titles, but everybody plays wildly distinct and enjoyable personalities with many moments to shine. The core trio is so fun that makes me wish this were a TV series rather than a standalone film, or at least it should lead to some sequels. The story is fast paced, but manages to slip in computer hacking, art history, and the Illuminati without languishing on anything long enough to become dull. Dialog is swift and clean, with good comedic timing. It doesn’t have the staying power to become a classic, but it’s one of the few movies I can confidently say I’ll rewatch in the next year or two. Verdict: If it’s not already obvious, Dark Web: Cicada 3301 is a winner. The title sucks, but just about everything else is good.
