    21 Jump Street

    ★★★½

    A surprisingly fun and entertaining revamp of the cheesy 80s TV show. Jonah Hill manages to break out of his normal schtick and plays a character here, not the typical vulgar improv-a-thon he's usually seen as. The biggest surprise, however, is Channing Tatum, who proves to be useful for the first time ever. Buried under all the cardboard glowering and dimensionless machismo is a goofy guy with terrific comedic timing. Who saw that coming?

    JGL is just incredible in this. Oscars, you're so freaking boring for ignoring this.

    Anyone else miss Gene Wilder? He's said in interviews that he'd like to return to film, but that no one's sent him any worthwhile scripts. Hey, Hollywood, GET ON THAT. This is probably him at his most affable, charming self. He and Pryor had such great chemistry together.

    Fellowship may be the best one, Return of the King won all the accolades, but for me, Two Towers has more emotional highs. Still think the Ents are the best part of all the whole saga.
