Hmmm, funny Will Ferrell or Will Ferrell trying to be funny? Actually, I probably answered my own question because I'm not sure I've liked any of his (comedy) movies but love his SNL stuff.


Agreed. It was the same way with Jim Carey. Even when they're in movies it seems like they're playing sketch TV characters, and it just comes off as awkward because you're watching a movie, not sketches.

Paul Rudd is the almighty exception. That guy works great in everything. Because he's so damn dry and subtle. No theatrics.

Ha, true enough. Maybe the pacing is just right because there's only so much you can take in one sitting.


I think it helped a lot that the movie was under 90 minutes too. Normally I complain about short movies but for this movie it was perfect.

Watched Soldiers of Fortune today with Sean Bean and holy crap was it a terrible. Good thing I saw it for free but it was awful.

Yes. And you had to watch everything twice. You would see him get on a plane and then watch the CIA sitting around monitors watching a video feed of him getting on the plan and saying "omg, he just got on a plane!"

Its too bad you're still a prick with a stupid gimmick.

Sounds like I'll pass on it. Running away gets old.


It's even worse when a movie poorly attempts to copy it, like the Hulks.

Saw Wall Street for the first time. So good that I didn't want it to end. It's the first Oliver Stone movie I liked (Scarface confused me, probably because I was too young at the time to understand it and The Doors went on and on to the point of boredom).

Is "Money Never Sleeps" any good? Letting the viewer decide what happen to Bud Fox and Gordon Gecko at the end of the first movie seemed good enough not to have a sequel.

Money Never Sleeps isn't too bad; I'd say you can't go wrong at least giving it a viewing.

I love that flick! 8-)

"You slip me the $2, I'll slip you the weiner! I don't have the cash! Well then I don't have a wiener!"

"Nobody leaves this place without singing the blues."

Brenda: Chris, it really scary in here. I just saw two people shoot out a bald chineese lady with no pants on and there's a guy outside who wants his suspenders and slippers!
Bum: GET OUT OF MY HOUSE!
Brenda: You just moved!

"Would a playboy Centerfold have nothing better to do on a Saturday night than to show up at a frat party with a bunch of kids?"

"That's the sweetest thing anybody's ever said to me! Wanna go to bed?"

"Nobody fucks with the babysitter!"

Tucker and Dale vs Evil. Awesome movie.


Can't wait to check that one out!

J. Edgar was so bad, I don't know why I sat through the whole thing. I guess I was hoping for some redeeming quality but no, the whole thing just sucked. I couldn't tell at all exactly what the message of the movie was supposed to be because it was just all over the place. When you want to show a man in a certain light, don't keep changing the position of the lamp.

Man, I want my time back.

Tucker & Dale VS Evil - Definitely, as good as people have said it was. Tyler Labine was hilarious (I was a fan of Reaper :( so I know he is).

It was an interesting twist on the slasher genre. An entertaining horror comedy. "These guys are dying around my property!"

Beetlejuice. If I treat it as a comedy, I thought it was fun. But a damn shame that Burton didn't utilize Keaton more, or at least in a slightly different capacity.

Paul Rudd is my absolute favorite comedic actor. His delivery of lines is incredible and has me laughing out loud 99% of the time. It's like he doesn't even try.

Goya's Ghosts. Enjoyed it. A tad slow at times but some strong performances.

Sherlock Holmes: Game of Shadows. Even more forgetable than the first.

Has anybody seen the new Total Recall? Is it a fun movie to go see? Most agree it isn't better than the first. But some are making out the first to be this cinematic masterpiece which I don't think it is. Any thoughts CAG's?



I have not watched it nor want to, but I follow 1 simple rule with 80's - early 90's remake and ripoffs.

All classics from that era are served with a bit of cheese, the remake/ripoff better have actors be able to or willing to pull that off, if not, than I know its going to be a bad movie that I don't want to see.

Most classics from that era pretty much has 1 outlandish concept and everything logically flows after that 1 concept, no matter how rediculous it may be. It is up to the actor/actors that makes that 1 concept believable.

Highlander/Adventures in Babysitting/Coming to America/The Terminator/Die Hard/The Princess Bride/Willow/Back to the Future/Ghostbusters/Ferris Bueller's Day Off/Big Trouble in Little China/Gremlins


Current trend is try to make the 1st outlandish concept as believable as possible with logic and explainations and it fucksup the whole movie because they all try to go back to it with explainations and crap and add cheese in between, the actor has to do it motherfuckers.


Only way I can see any recent action remakes of an 80's movie be good now is if the Rock is the star. Check out the "The Rundown", if that was made in the 80's he would be one of the biggest stars now.

Tucker and Dale was pretty funny, totally turned that crazy hillbilly type of horror movie on it's head.

Ip Man 1&2

Expendables 2
Better than the first, but that was not a great movie.. This one was okay, mindless action all the way through. I feel like with Chuck Norris being a part of the line up being quite a big deal in my opinion that his involvement should have been kept a secret. That would of been awesome.

Also everyone quoting lines from each others films got kind of old after a while, but ah well.

I'm going to let you in on a little secret. Every day, once a day, give yourself a present. Don't plan it. Don't wait for it. Just let it happen. It could be a new shirt at the men's store, a catnap in your office chair, or two cups of good, hot black coffee.

Thunderbolt and Lightfoot was on PBS last night. A fun movie, especially when you have Clint Eastwood AND Jeff Bridges.
