    Django Unchained 2012

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 11 Apr, 2015

    I don't know what else to add to this movie. I've seen this a bunch of other times before (though this is the first I've seen this in years) and you all know how great it is by now so I'll just say this:

    1. Jamie Foxx and Christoph Waltz make for the best Ebony & Ivory type duo since Gibson/Glover from the Lethal Weapon franchise.

    2. Samuel L. Jackson is the biggest show stealer; not just because he was almost…

    Around this time two years ago, word got out that Ryan Gosling was directing his first film and I couldn't have been more excited. One of my favorite actors directing a movie in my hometown starring my favorite Doctor Who guy? Sign me up!

    Then, two years passed. Two years since, I stopped being a Doctor Who fan, I stopped sipping the Gosling koolaid, and after a while, I lost hope that this movie was even getting released. In fact,…

    Paul Walker has one of those filmographies that are filled with enough crap films that make you realize that he deserved much better compared to the consistent solid performances he gave.

    This is one of those crap films.

    I really wish he had a better agent before he died.

    I've lost track of how many times I've seen this movie and it still manages to be one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.

    Just when Miles Teller was becoming one of my favorite rising stars in Hollywood, this movie made him out to be the most annoying prick in movie history.

  • Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain

    Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain 2013

    ★★ Watched 05 Apr, 2015

    Missing the "fire" of Kevin Hart's usual stand up and in between the overlong, dumb scripted opening and the crying thing at the end that felt too staged to feel genuine, it's a mostly lackluster stand-up. There are some very funny parts here, but Hart misses more than he hits unfortunately.

    Feel-A-Round is probably the funniest movie sketch I've ever seen.

    That sketch alone is reason enough to see this insanely funny movie.

    You know how they say you shouldn't make funny faces all the time or your face will stick that way forever?

    I think that explains Renee Zellweger's face.

    Not sure why Jim Carrey's face still looks the same.

    Movie 43 2013

    ★½ Watched 04 Apr, 2015

    A couple years ago, one of the biggest critically acclaimed casts in movie history, comprised of Hollywood's biggest award winning actors, came together in one of the most widely hated movies to come out in recent memory.

    Almost immediately upon it's release, the reviews were scathing and critics everywhere wondered just how a script like this could lure in any actor. My only guess could be that the actors were promised skits that were the quality of classic Saturday Night…

    Two Night Stand 2014

    ★★ Watched 04 Apr, 2015

    Miles Teller: that kid's going places. Unlike this film, which went nowhere for 90 minutes; or at least nowhere you don't expect it.

    Analeigh Tipton: I never paid much attention to her in previous films (I think I've only seen her in Lucy and Crazy Stupid Love) but she's a lot better than I would've expected her to be. Even if her character is as bland as a stack of potatoes. Then again, so is her co-star.

    Still, the lovely…

    ★★★½ Rewatched 27 Mar, 2015

    Not quite as funny and definitely not as good as I remember it when I used to see it over and over again years ago. Some of the wish episodes drag for far too long and the Raquel Welch bit felt even more pointless and random than I remember it being. Not to mention it's really dated in some parts, which I suppose should be expected out of an almost 50 year old film. However, after a bit of a…
