TSP2016: Hail, Caesar

Oh, CGI. Boo.

So colour corrected.

Hail, Caesar. Ethan Coen. 2016.

Hm… on the one hand, this film is very much like if Mel Brooks wanted to make a Wes Anderson movie. On the other hand, there are fun scenes like the Gene Kelly sailor scene. On the fourth hand, there’s the horrible CGI-looking (even if it might not have been) version of the Busby Berkeley scene.

So… not firing on all cylinders, but have any Coen film ever done that? Very, very good-natured, though. It’s like almost very good.
