Movie Diary 8/25/2010

Takers (Jon Luessenhop, 2010). This is too easy to slap. And with good actors (Matt Dillon, Idris Elba, Zoe Saldana), too. There’s also a cameo appearance by a 30-year-old Macallan single malt, which is indicative of how this movie presents a coolness of stuff we should want to attain, and without which we will probably be unhappy in our rotten lives: tailored Italian suits, apartments of chrome and glass, and big black SUVs. Aren’t SUVs cool? Don’t you need one? Buy. Buy. Buy. Etc. (full review 8/27)
