Arizona Movie Review

Nuts in the Dust

Danny McBride is probably best known for his over-the-top comedy roles on cable television. In Jonathan Watson's "Arizona," he alternates between that persona and a very psychotic and scary individual. The mood of the film does likewise, careening back and forth between making you uncomfortable and making you laugh.

It's always difficult to mix genres, and comedy/thriller is as tough as it gets. When I think of that particular combination, I always go back to "An American Werewolf in London," which to me is the best example of when it works. In "Arizona" the two genres blend into one another within a single scene. It works better when a scene only features one genre. However, somehow "Arizona" is still great fun to watch because of the performances and the truly oddball plot.

The background for it is a failed planned community in Arizona that has fallen victim to the bursting of the housing bubble after the economic crash of 2008. Most of the houses in the development have long been deserted by their owners because they have failed to maintain their mortgage payments.

Sonny (Danny McBride), one of the remaining residents, is fed up. His wife has left him and he is in great debt. He goes to the local realtor to try and recover his investment because he blames the realtor for lying to him about the property he purchased from him. The argument turns physical and the realtor accidentally falls to his death. 

Cassie (Rosemarie Dewitt), another struggling homeowner who also works for the realtor, witnesses the incident. This sets in motion a crazed Sonny who cannot decide how far to go in order to silence Cassie. The rest of "Arizona" is a series of sometimes scary, sometimes funny incidents that involves a growing group of characters.

The net result for the viewer is confusion as to whether to be horrified or laugh at everything happening on the screen. This causes a tremendous lack of flow in the story. It's a series of stops and starts that never quite takes off in any particular direction. Despite this, there's still enough here to hold your interest, and some scenes are great fun. It's uneven black comedy, but it's far from being as dry and dusty as an Arizona desert.

Blue Note Records Beyond the Notes Movie Review

Hits All the Right Notes
It took me a very long time to understand that jazz wasn't meandering and boring. At some point I came around enough to at least appreciate it and even really like some of it, although I remain very far from an aficionado.
Blue Note Records is an American jazz record label established in 1939 by Alfed Lion and Max Margulis, two German-Jewish immigrants. At its outset the label was dedicated to recording traditional jazz and small group swing, but in 1947 they switched their attention to modern jazz.

Xbox Two release date rumours, design and more

Xbox Two release date rumours, design and more Microsoft’s Xbox One didn’t have the greatest launch – it was overpriced thanks to the ‘requirement’ of the Kinect (which has since been completely discontinued) and the requirement of an internet connection to function pushed many to Sony’s PS4. The console has improved substantially since launch, both in terms of features and pricing, and the introduction of the high-end Xbox One X has grabbed the interest of many.
