  • Meet the Parents

    Meet the Parents 2000

    ★★★★ Rewatched 31 Aug, 2015

    This movie pissed me off when I first saw it in the theater. But after a few viewings now, I find it hysterical.

    Owen Wilson is an immediate standout. "You might call it a... hopa?"

    Yeah this stuff is just not for me. This is not as angering and insufferable as Frances Ha, but it comes close.

    I'm sure it's intentional, but watching the way in which dialogue is delivered in this thing is like fingernails on a chalk board. No one ever has a reaction to anything. They're just waiting to say their next line as quickly as possible. It's like "Clerks" all over again without being remotely funny. The retorts come so fast…

    This movie beat The Pianist? Fuck you.

    The Adventures of Tintin 2011

    ★★ Added 16

    Incredibly boring with unflattering characters and attempts at comedy that had me eye rolling ever bit as much as I was checking my watch. No stakes, no story, no intrigue. Just a series of set pieces that, for the most part, linger on nothing of interest.

    The character of Tin Tin himself is as bland as he appears. Wish I would've skipped this one.
