Black Knight (2001)
on Wednesday, December 5, 2012
December is Time Travel Month for Phil Buni, because screw Christmas! (Also, he did his Christmas specials back in July.) First up is Black Knight, a comedy where Martin Lawrence, one of the least funny actors of our time, works at a Medieval Times-style theme park, but then ends up traveling back in time to the actual medieval times! Did you notice how many times we said "time" in this description? It's a theme month!
“Sci-fi fans looking for boilerplate action might be bored by the long stretches of exposition and introspection, but that’s precisely what makes the movie memorable.”Safety Not Guaranteed (2012)
“Without the hook of the internet-famous ad, it’s doubtful that many people would have heard or cared about this sporadically funny and rather unassuming film.”Detention (2011)
This meta-mashup movie stars Josh Hutcherson and Dane Cook in a high school comedy/drama that morphs into a slasher movie, which them morphs into a sci-fi story involving body switching, time travel, and the end of the world. Sure, given the time of year, there are other movies more appropriate for Phil's Time Travel Month, but no way and no how is he reviewing any movie version of A Christmas Carol.The Time Traveler’s Wife (2009)
“In the movie’s defense, it tries to dial down the pedo vibe, but it’s a bit futile when the source material is this inherently creepy.”Time Changer (2002)
It's the belated final episode of Time Travel Month! Phil Buni looks at Time Changer, a really poorly made Christian sci-fi film where a professor from 1890 gets in Captain Stubing's time machine and travels to 2002. There, he's horrified to discover that America is no longer the god-fearing country it never was. It's hilariously awful!S. Darko: A Donnie Darko Tale (2009)
“It’s clear the filmmakers saw Donnie Darko, and literally no other movie ever made.”
