I can't stand Jon Favreau as an actor. I hated his "everybody look at me Jon Favreau I am cool" in Iron Man, and so while the trailer for CHEF looked fun and cute, I've kind of been putting off watching it.
YOU GUYS. It's so fun. It starts off pretty okay and just keep surprising you by just getting better as it goes on. Jon Favreau is actually pretty good, John Leguizamo is John Freaking Leguizamo, Robert Downey Junior…
A scary and confusing place for teenage boys. What lies beyond the walls? We don't know, because nobody has ever come back. Maybe it's safer just to stay here. But we can't. The grown-ups have trapped us here and we have to figure everything out for ourselves and it hurts and I'm lonely and I can't tell whether I want to fight with the other boys or hold them at night and tell them it's okay to cry. Also, girls are weird and give us strange emotions.
YA writers, go home. We've hit Peak Puberty Metaphor.
Joss Whedon and Tony Stark were meant to be together. Joss Whedon and Thor, not so much. The man needs to learn to kill some darlings: I know you like your witty one-liners, Joss, but having a team of six superheroes all channelling Xander Harris in the middle of cataclysmic battle sequences just isn't appropriate. Still, an immensely entertaining film. See it in 2D.
