The Rum Diary (2011)

ImageDirector: Bruce Robinson

Writer: Bruce Robinson

(Based on a novel by Hunter S. Thompson)

WOW!  One of the more dull and pointless movies I can recall seeing.  Pretty much nothing happens in it, it isn’t dramatic, it isn’t funny, it isn’t interesting.  Watching this I am surprised it even got a wide theatrical release.  I know Depp is a big star but just based on the films merits there is just nothing there.  Apparently it sat on a shelf for three years or so before it was released.  That sounds about right.  As uneven and flawed as Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas is at least it went full force with the crazy.  Great cast.  Boring movie.
