Actual conversations I had with my 2 and a half year old son, Jack, while watching this:
Jack: Who dat?
Jack: [Looks confused.]
Me: I don't know. He's a god like Thor. Or maybe a demigod ... [trails off realizing that mentioning a real villain like Dr. Doom would just upset the boy.]
Jack: Watch something else?
Me: Dude, this has Iron Man and Hulk and Captain America in it ... eventually.
Jack: Where's Hulk?
Having already acknowledged that my rating might be inflated due to yesterday's Rollergator incident, I still feel it's my duty to recommend this movie to anyone who's a fan of stuntmen doing crazy shit. It's not quite as berserk as Arizal's movies due to the fact we have laws in the U.S., but it's pretty close.
The first five minutes are a little wonky, but then the film kicks into 10 straight minutes of action bliss. It starts of with…
This might be the most unwatchable movie I've ever seen. I watch a lot of really terrible crap, so I realize that that's a fairly bold statement. But Rollergator is completely inept in its filmmaking, 99% offensively unfunny in its humor, and comprised of about 5 minutes of plot and 80 minutes of unintelligible dialogue.
A movie like Birdemic: Shock and Terror transcends its awfulness because the lack of talent involved inadvertently turns the film into a Lynch-ian nightmare even…
Turns out that when I get up at 6:00 am on a Saturday, the best movie I can think of to watch is one starring Master P. Actually, I was hoping to watch some Rudy Ray Moore, but Netflix pulled all the Dolemite movies and somehow I thought this would be a good substitute. [Please note that I have seen this before.]
Master P was clearly heavily influenced by Friday, going so far as to cast Tiny "Zeus" Lister and…
1) It's been scientifically proven that this is the funniest movie of all time, so we don't need to have that conversation any more.
2) I thought jive was an actual language until I was maybe 13.
3) For some odd reason the visual gag of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar being pulled away from the cockpit wearing his Lakers gear and goggles is one of my favorite jokes in the movie.
4) This movie is rated PG but has boobs in it,…
I'm not going to pretend like nostalgia doesn't play a big part in my love for this movie, but I will defend every actor as being absolutely perfect in their role.
Sure, the love story crap is kind of weak, but Bob Ueuker makes up for any and every possible problem one could find in this movie.
Wife (as credits roll): What, I gotta take a class on this now?
Under the Skin is easily the most fascinating and audacious film I've watched in the last year. I love to be challenged by a film, and this one asks a lot of its audience while simultaneously not really caring what anyone thinks. Director Jonathan Glazer wears his influences on his sleeve, but melds them into an experience unlike anything else.
Ultimately, the repetitive nature of the story…
Marking this as "watched" seems like kind of a cheat because I spent a large portion of the run time just sort of spacing out and not really paying attention.
It started fine, but when the naked lady shows up and the dude filming is just whipping the camera like an idiot I realized that this movie sucked. There was some other scene where the way it was being filmed didn't make any goddamn sense, but I was probably looking…
