Silver Streak (1976)
December 31

I decided to end the year with a fun movie. This movie had everything it needed to be a success. It was funny, had big names and had thrills. I wasn't expecting Richard Pryor to appear an hour into the movie, but his appearance was worth the wait. Definitely the best Pryor/Wildor movie. I just want to say that this list was a fun experience and I will be doing this again in 2013.

December 31

Ever since I heard about this movie I have been wanting to see it. If I saw it earlier then I probably would've been a bit disappointed. It is a good movie, but it is flawed and isn't as great as it could've been. Aaron Johnson was good though.

Very funny movie. This was known to be the first gross-out comedy, but unlike most movies of that kind the gross-out humor is clever and it also doesn't just rely on that kind of humor for cheap laughs.

I decided to watch another Coen Brothers movie before the year ends. This is a good movie, but it doesn't reach the level of greatness as their other films for me. The acting is good, so is the script and like all their movies it has a really good soundtrack. It's not their best work, but I might revisit it years from now.

I know most of you are surprised I hadn't seen this yet, but when I was really young I had no urge to see it, but the older I got the more interested I was in seeing it. I just never got around to seeing it, but today I thought it was about time that I finally watch it. I don't think I ever seen a kid's movie as heartfelt and powerful as this one. I also never knew how talented Drew Barrymore was as a child. This was a great movie that I'm glad I finally saw.

Just as good as the first one if not better. Wednesday Addams steals the show in this one and is one of the reasons why these movies are so good.

I wouldn't say it's funny as The 40-Year-Old Virgin, but it still had a good amount of laughs. The main problem I had was that Katherine Heigl could be annoying sometimes.

Since this was leaving Netflix on the first of January, I decided to watch it while I still had the chance too. I'm really glad I did. Natalie Portman's performance is probably the best I've seen from her. She is one of my favorite actresses, but I've never seen her pull off a performance like this. I also thought the movie was very weird and sometimes unpredictable. If there are any flaws in this movie then I couldn't find them.

I was looking for something to watch on Netflix and when I saw this on there I thought I should finally see it. I thought it was disappointing. The character development was very poor in my opinion. Some of theme were horny nerds and some of them just weren't likeable. The script really wasn't impressive either. One thing that bugged me was how many party scenes there were. Does a movie like this need that many? The reason for my generous rating is because I really didn't think this was a bad movie and there were some things I liked about this movie like Fincher's direction. This was just overrated and overhyped.

I knew about this one for years, but had never seen it until now. I thought that this documentary was very educational since I don't live in America. This documentary was funny, thought-provoking and sometimes shocking. There were a couple things that keep me from giving it a perfect score, but this was a great documentary and makes me interested in seeing Morgan Spurlock's other work. (Except that One Direction one he's working on.

This was an awesome movie. Everything about this movie was great. Jamie Fox is really good as Django and everyone else is good too. Like all of Tarantino's movies the dialogue is great and the action scenes are too. The movie is already an instant classic in my book. This is one you should see in theaters because this is worth every penny.

This is the worst buddy cop movie I've seen so far. There were only 3 funny jokes in the whole movie. The movie would actually be funnier if Kevin Smith wrote the script.
I also thought that Tracy Morgan was painfully unfunny in this movie. I have officially seen every movie Kevin Smith has directed. I hope Clerks III will be good since it's his last movie.

When this came out it was known to be Kevin Smith's worst movie until Cop Out was released and took it's place. After seeing it I thought that it did not deserve the reputation it gets as a movie. It may have it's flaws, but I thought it was touching and a different movie for Kevin Smith to make. I really liked George Carlin's performance too. If you're a fan of Smith's work then I would give it a chance.

Cedar Rapids (2011)

What a letdown. All I wanted was a funny movie and I got about a few mildly funny laughs. What's worse is that this is a critically-acclaimed comedy. Step Brothers and Mallrats get bashed by critics but this one doesn't? I also didn't like John C. Reilly in this movie. He is a good actor most of the time, but in this he was just an obnoxious douchebag. Even though this movie was 88 minutes I still think this is a waste of time that I'll never get back.

I didn't know what I would think of this movie, since this was another Sofia Coppola movie, but it was actually better than Lost in Translation. Unlike that movie this one actually has a plot and has characters to care about. Still nothing great and I'm not sure if I'd go out of my way to watch it again, but it's great to know that it's better than I thought it would be.

I've been wanting to see this for a while. The trailer was intriguing and Quentin Tarantino's comment of the movie on the DVD cover was tempting. If I didn't lower my expectations a little bit then I would've been a little disappointed. It is a good movie. It was unlike anything Kevin Smith has done before and it's his most mature movie to date, but it falls flat from being his best movie. It is worth seeing, but don't expect anything great from it.

How come whenever a new Christmas Buddies movie comes out that is the Christmas movie the school watches when there are so many better Christmas movies in the world. The plot has been done before in a better movie called Elf. It was also mind-numbingly stupid. I mean Mrs. Clause getting locked in jail? How cliched is that? The humor is also unfunny like all Buddies movies. The reason for the extra star is because it is slightly better than Treasure Buddies.

This wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be, but it still isn't good. The main problem is that it barely feels like a Beverly Hills Cop movie. It feels like a movie about Eddie Murphy hanging out at an amusement park. Has some mildly funny jokes, but is worth skipping along with it's predecessor. This is so far the only John Landis movie I don't care for which is a shame because he is a good director.

My experience before the show was a bitch. The path to the theater was blocked so I had to walk and since the room the movie was in was being cleaned the staff made us wait outside in the fucking cold. It was more than worth it. Like all the LOTR movies they're visually impressive and proves that Peter Jackson is the king of blockbusters. It also had some humorous dialogue and when the movie ends it leaves you wanting more. Somehow it doesn't reach the same level of greatness as the LOTR movies did, but it is a great start to the trilogy and hopefully the other two will be better.

When this movie came out I avoided it because of my hatred for Zac Efron, but since it got positive feedback I decided to watch it. I should've kept avoiding it because this was terrible. Zac Efron was so bad that it made me miss Matthew Perry's character and I'm not even a fan of him. This is another body swap comedy. It wouldn't bother me so much if this movie was funny, but it isn't. This movie was around an hour and forty minutes, but it felt much longer than that. Please avoid this movie. It will give you a bad feeling after watching it.

Who would've thought that Billy Bob Thorton could really act? I already knew he was a good actor, but this was an amazing performance. His writing and directing are also good too. I thought that this was a well-made drama with an unusual ending. (In a good way of course.) I didn't give it a higher rating that 8 because I felt that it never reached the level of greatness to me, but it still is a good movie that made Billy Bob Thorton famous.

Since people were saying this was the best thing Eddie Murphy has done recently, I decided to watch it sometime. I thought it was a funny movie and is actually more entertaining than some of the other heist films I've seen recently. This is Eddie Murphy's best movie since Bowfinger. (Excluding the first two Shrek movies.)

Most of Eddie Murphy's new movies are ones that suck and this is no exception. Most of the jokes in the movie aren't funny. There are maybe 2 or 3 mildly funny parts, but most of this was painfully stupid. It also tried to do what The Truman Show did to Jim Carrey by adding drama to the movie, but it just doesn't work.

Very average heist movie and for a comedy it wasn't very humorous. (Although I thought the part where Woody shoots at that shark was funny.) Woody Harrelson is a good actor, but I felt he was miscast in this movie. This is one you're better off skipping.

I did think it was a good movie, but I do think it was a little overrated. The script wasn't bad, but nothing astonishing. One of the main problems I had with this movie is that I felt they robbed the casino a little too easily. The performances were great though. (Except for Julia Roberts. She was average.) Entertaining movie, but not the great popcorn movie everyone says it is.

I really liked this movie. The wrestling scenes were cool and I liked how the movie was about the life of an aging wrestler. Mickey Rourke gives a good performance in this movie and proves to me that he can act.
