After watching Ghoul last night, I decided to kick back and watch something very different. Of course, that is usually a challenge, as I do not have that type of movie readily available. However, last night was different as we had a movie here on hand. That flick was the 2013 action comedy Pawn Shop Chronicles.
Plot/ A missing wedding ring leads to a wild-goose chase involving meth addicts, skinheads and an Elvis impersonator.
This is definitely not my usual selection, but I was in the mood for a comedy and this one fit the bill. Like a low-budget clone of the classic Pulp Fiction, this one was extremely disjointed with just enough incoherent related moments to somewhat pull it all together. The most impressive thing was that while it had some head scratching moments, the acting was solid and it was funny, disturbing and entertaining. It was far from perfect, as the scripting was uneven and the entire storyline spiraled downward in some bizarre manner as the film wore on. In the end, this one is not for everyone. Yes, will help pass some time and put a smile a face, but it will also turn some people off in a big way. If you want to see a low budget disjointed comedy, check it out!
