A movie review: By Lee Sonogan


A movie based in the ’50s based on a real story, Eddie Mannix, The main character played by Josh Brolin owns a film studio called Capitol picture studios. He manages and creates pictures with many famous people in it, starring in the scenes of movies in the movie. This movie has great imagery with the in and outs scenes of the movie. This Comedy/mystery movie portrays the movie business in a different way. With interesting scenes and plots to make you continue to watch the movie.

The list of celebrities includes Josh Brolin, George Clooney, Ralph Fiennes, Scarlett Johansson, Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Alden Ehrenreich, Frances McDormand and so much more.

In the movie, each celebrity plays an important role. Scarlett Johnsson plays an actress with a thick accent from smoking in the movie, I presume. Chatum Tanning appears in a musical scene as a sailor singing a song called ‘No Dames’. Tilda Swinton plays to characters as twins who are both rival reporters. And finally, Josh Brolin plays the main character as Eddie Mannix.


The in-depth view of how movies are made and managed creates an interesting film. Plus it’s funny from the jokes of bad acting in the past. This all-around movie even has creative imagery and music. You will be entertained and amused and even have a mirthless chuckle.

Now I know what the annoying coffee commercial was referencing. The movie makes a decent accompaniment to other activities which also don’t take much mental attention. The actors were all fantastic. But that’s not saying much since they were nearly all well known accomplished Hollywood regulars. If you’re a Coen Brothers follower you will have seen it already. If you’re not but you enjoy a little disjointed light-heartedness thrown into an equally disjointed tribute to Hollywood then go for it. If you’re neither I wouldn’t bother.  – LavishMango aka Melinda (Google Review – 3/5)
