Help! (1965)
Watched on: 1/1

Very fun film if you're a fan of The Beatles although it's not their best film. I prefer Hard Day's Night or Yellow Submarine over this. But it has some good jokes, good songs and a decent plot.

A great movie! It's a really good mystery movie with great performances. Great characters too, Lisbeth is such a badass. It kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time. However, it was very strangley paced, sometimes it felt as though it were going too fast, and other times it felt as though it were going too slow. But overall, a great movie.

Hall Pass (2011)
Watched on: 1/3

This movie was awful. It was boring, gross, unfunny. It had maybe one or two laughs in it, but other than that, it was just a bunch of guys trying to get laid. It also has tons of odd scenes added here and there to make you think that it has heart, but it doesn't. Avoid this movie.

Fargo (1996)

Classic Coen brothers. If someone wanted a basic introduction to them, this would be the perfect movie. It's got dark comedy, violence. What more could you possibly want?

Surprisingly funny. I didn't think I was going to like this movie. I thought it would be an American Pie situation (everyone my age loved that movie, I hated it). But I was surprised, it was a pretty good satire.

Idiocracy (2006)
Watched on: 1/6

This was a rewatch, but this movie is just as funny, if not funnier the second time around. More people really need to watch this movie, it's amazing. It's also scary how whats happening in real life is shown in this movie. When you think about it, Tosh.0 is basically "Ow My Balls". Wont be long until "Ass" comes out.

Great movie, really loved the ending. Christian Bale was great as Alfred. But, it was kind of confusing, especially the begginning when Alfred is reading Robert's diary entries about reading Alfred's diary.

The Cable Guy (1996)
Watched on: 1/7

If you don't think that Ben Stiller is a comedy genius then your logic is flawed and you can not be trusted. This movie only further prooves how amazing Ben Stiller is. He takes the comedy stereotype of a character being on the borderline of just goofy and clinically insane, and changes it by making the character literally insane. Hilarious movie.

Remember when Tim Burton cared about his movies? Remember when his movies were about outcasts that we all could relate to becuase he himself could relate to them so well. Remember when he wasn't just milking his Johnny Depp, Danny Elfman children choir, Helena Bonham Carter schtick? Those were the good old days.

This movie was okay. I was kind of biased about it because I don't like Kristen Stewart or Ryan Reynolds, but it was better than I expected. Their performances were, of course, nothing special. But Michael Cera, I mean Michael Cera, I mean Jesse Eisenberg was alright.


^Easily the best thing about this movie!^

This is actually a really funny movie, shame not a lot of people have seen it. This movie is the most stereotypical movie ever. Every stereotype in movie history is presented in this movie. Stereotypical cop, stereotypical bad guy. But it's got some great scenes and really funny lines.

The Palm D'or, a best picture nomination, really? This movie was a mess. The first hour is a jumbled mess of God knows what, and then in the second hour they realize a plot is nessecary. When they get the plot going it's just a coming of age story set in the 50's, and it's done really well. So why couldn't that be the whole movie, why do you gotta go all philisophically apeshit on us?

What a stupid movie, although I don't really know what I was expecting. It's like one of those internal struggle movies, except you can't take it seriously because the internal struggle is a fucking beaver puppet. Also, you have to sit through the annoying son's story.

Well, it wasn't terrible. It had some funny lines and moments, but overall a forgettable experience. I was also hoping for some more 80's nostalgia, like in Hot Tub Time Machine. I just really like the 80's.

I don't think I need to say how hilarious this movie is. They need to make more movies like Spaceballs. Wouldn't it be hilarious if they re-released Spaceballs in 3D? Or if they made a bunch of poorly written, poorly acted prequels... never mind.

Bad movie. The animation was great, but the story and the jokes all sucked. I didn't even like the main villain, and he was played by GARY OLDMAN! Way to go Kung Fu Panda, you somehow made it possible to make a Gary Oldman character unbearable. If you really want to watch a Kung Fu Panda movie, for some weird ass reason, stick to the first one.

They went full retard with this one. It was chock full of gross out humor. So if you're into that kind of humor, I guess you might like it. But I hated it, it's unfunny, poorly acted and how the fuck does Thadeous, a one-dimensional loser character, get Natalie Portman (who, by the way doesn't show up until half way into the movie and she's completely unnecessary, clearly only there to be a love interest)?

I like Vince Vaughn, I think he's a funny guy. I think it's funny when he does that thing where he just keeps fast talking about absolutely nothing, that always cracks me up. Unfortunately, a lot of his movie's suck, this is one of those movies. It get's kind of depressing, which really wasn't what I was expecting from this movie. Also, what was the deal with Queen Latifah's character?

Great action movie, the best of the series (so far[?]). It had action, suspense, and even just the right amount little humor(I mean, Simon Pegg is in it so you're gonna expect a few laughs). It's probably the best action movie since Inception.
