Tropic Thunder (2008) [R]-- W.I.P. Scale™ Rating: $14.25
Review-lite: If you like stepping in a little controversy, go see Tropic Thunder, but be prepared, honestly, to bring a legal pad and take notes for this film is truly a text book in and of itself when it comes to brilliance in filmmaking. A set of unexpectedly great actors deliver unexpectedly inspired performances under the direction of satirical genius Ben Stiller who has just relocated to a new time zone on the map of greatness with this unbelievable film achievement. You can buy the controversies and totally miss what this film is really about and what has really been achieved or you can spend the next few weeks pouring over your notes and realize what risks it took to make this movie and to stand by it in the end.
