“There’s Hollywood Elsewhere and then there’s everything else. It’s your neighborhood dive where you get the ugly truth, a good laugh and a damn good scotch.”
(Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Super 8)
“Smart, reliable and way ahead of the curve … a must and invaluable read.”
(Down and Dirty Pictures Easy Riders, Raging Bulls)
“He writes with an element that any good filmmaker employs and any moviegoer uses to fully appreciate the art of film – the heart.”
–Alejandro G. Inarritu
(The Revenant, Birdman, Amores Perros)
“Nothing comes close to HE for truthfulness, audacity, and one-eyed passion and insight.”
(Salt, Clear and Present Danger, Rabbit-Proof Fence, Dead Calm)
“A rarity and a gem … Hollywood Elsewhere is the first thing I go to every morning.”
“Jeffrey Wells isn’t kidding around. Well, he does kid around, but mostly he just loves movies.”
(Almost Famous, Jerry Maguire, Vanilla Sky)
“In a world of insincere blurbs and fluff pieces, Jeff has a truly personal voice and tells it like it is. Exactly like it is, like it or not.”
–Guillermo del Toro
(Pan’s Labyrinth, Cronos, Hellboy)
“It’s clearly apparent he doesn’t give a shit what the Powers that Be think, and that’s a good thing.”
Director (The Punisher), Writer (Armageddon, The Rock)
“So when I said I’d like to leave my cowboy hat there, I was obviously saying (in my head at least) that I’d be back to stay the following year … simple and quite clear all around.”
–Jeffrey Wells, HE, January ’09
“If you’re in a movie that doesn’t work, game over and adios muchachos — no amount of star-charisma can save it.”
–Jeffrey Wells, HE
Friendo: “One of T.E. Lawrence’s old friends went to see the film when it opened in ’62. He was asked his opinion and said, ‘Well, at least they got the sand and camels right.'”
He gave us Next Floor, Polytechnique and Enemy. This isn’t Satantango or Tsai ming-liang – buy the ticket + popcorn.
I think you owe it to yourself, and us, to see this in the theater. Have the full Villaneuve experience before deciding how you feel (i.e. confirming that you hate it).
Is “Friendo #2” an 85-year-old suffering from an enlarged prostate? Because for what other demographic is going to a theater “torture”?
The movie’s either worth watching or not. “Friendo #2” seems to think it is, as long as it’s at home, with easy pausing for the necessary 19 or 20 bathroom breaks.
