Rapture Palooza from writer Chris Matheson (Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure) and director Paul Middleditch (Separation City) is a lot like the old “Donny and Marie” TV variety show from the late 1970s.  The difference is that Donny and Marie were “a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll” and Rapture Palooza is a little bit Dogma, a little bit of Shaun of the Dead, with some stoner comic relief stirred in.

Butter is one of those brilliantly written films that is a joy to watch.  Screenwriter Jason Micallef’s script was so good, it won him a prestigious Nicholl fellowship in 2008, one of only five such awards handed out to writers by the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences.  Now his script has been brought to the big screen and the finished product is a real winner.
