Movie Diary 5/23/2017

Baywatch (Seth Gordon, 2017). A movie relentlessly makes fun of the TV series it is based on; the expected rancid humor results. Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron, and assorted beach bodies are the human-like figures that star. (full review 5/26)

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales (Joachim Ronning, Espen Sandberg, 2017). The fifth movie in a franchise. Some of the spectacle is actual spectacle, so we can certainly say that. (full review 5/26)

The Trip to Spain (Michael Winterbottom, 2017). Third movie with Steve Coogan and Rob Brydon traveling, eating, and goofing. A little less interestingly morbid than the previous chapter, but probably funnier. (Some extended riffing on Roger Moore now stands as a fitting RIP.) (screens at SIFF)
