Is this really how you react to a trailer? Also, are you a person?



i change the channel for that commercial theyre trying way to hard with those commercials and the concept only worked as a tv show because they used attractive people and it was the 80s we didnt know any better.

i hate forced comedies the only person who does them somewhat successfully is will ferrel and even he can be fucking annoying at times.....many times. the kind of comedy they pimp nowdays is just so damn grating and a bit insulting to peoples intelligence.

What's the last top ten "intelligent" films you saw from 2011?

This is no different than any buddy comedy released since the 80's. Just because you're too stupid to see through the crap marketing and spot a decent film for what it is... well it means you're too stupid to see through crap marketing and see a good film for what it is.

I honestly don't give a shit if you watch it or not. But you're hating on something you don't know anything about and making decisions based not on the film itself. It's idiotic and there's nothing intelligent about it. If you don't want to watch it. Good for you. But the fact you're saying things are "forced" or whatever nonsense you're trying to get at, without having seen the film, it just makes you ignorant.

You didn't see it? You don't get to judge it.



ive seen enough movies to know easily whether I ( see what I said there I) will like it or not the film looks dumb as shit and Id never waste my time on it. I also get turned off by hollywood going out of their way to force feed actors and actresses down our throats one hit and then youre bombarded by an onslaught of films with this guy or girl in them and both channing tatum and that goofy guy are in that club.


ill get back to you on the 2011 list but first id need to ask do they need to have been released in 2011 or just films ive seen in 2011 period? i dont like alot of the stuff that comes out in america but i do love foreign films so once youve let me know what the criteria is ill set you up with my list.

and please dont compare this shit film with other buddy comedies youre gonna tell me this movie compares with lethal weapon, or 48 hours or dragnet? cmon man.........

I agree with this 100% if those two morons weren't in the movie I would gladly go see it. I can't stand being force fed shitty actor(s) because they were in one successful movie. Jonah Hill annoys the hell out of me so I could care less about any movie starring him. Honestly he ruined Get Him to the Greek and Moneyball for me. I don't blame the actors, I say make all the money you can while you can, but rather the studios. I guess also the stupid audiences who will go see a shitty movie because someone is in it. It can go the other way for people like me who avoid certain movies because of certain actors. Oh well in the end I think our opinions are of very little consequence.

Back on topic I saw John Carter today and I have to say I really enjoyed it. Its a shame that I don't think they will get make any sequels. The Lorax was much better than I expected as well and I would recommend it, especially if you have kids.

Young Adult was a great movie and I was totally surprised as I knew nothing about before we rented it.

I do the same thing. Oddly enough most recently for the same actor, switched to the news during commercial breaks everytime that COD commercial came on.

I guess when it comes to comedy, I have different tastes. Any episode of The Wire (far from a comedy) made me laugh more than a year worth of supposed "blockbuster" comedies. Then again, I'm a miserable Fuck, so to make me laugh you have to hide your comedy in some depressing shit. Schindler's List, where that kid hid from the Nazis in the bottom of an outhouse: CLASSIC!

Project X - For what it is, I really liked it. There really is no script outside of a huge, "oh shit" moment heavy party. Got quite a few good laughs out of it.

21 Jump Street- good. Lots of laughs
Project X- fun party movie. I get why it doesn't review well. It's a very straightforward party movie that goes overboard and then gets even wilder. If you expect that you will have a good time.

Lets see..

Super not my kind of thing, only watched because I was bored. I do get some enjoyment out of lame films like this. Didn't like Kick Ass either.

Fast Five same old thing, not great but not bad. Love how tough Dwayne Johnson is though.

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.

Awesome thing of you to do. Too bad there's nothing left for me to see (that I have any interest in). I go to the theater too much :lol:

I saw Drive and Hugo this weekend.

Drive was as good as the critics made it out to be. Nothing really happened for the first hour and almost no dialogue, but still felt it was entertaining and a bit hypnotic.

Hugo was charming and had some really nice moments, but I wasn't really thrilled with it.

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

Maybe next time you should send the code in pms to people who ask, so lurkers don't get to them first.

Finally got Drive from Netflix and watched it last night.

Thought it was very good. Strong performances, loved the score etc. The violence was a bit much for me though.

Game Change
It's on demand from hbo. Throw away your political affiliations and enjoy a great movie about politics. It would be a shame to ignore it due to someone's political leanings.

Moneyball.

Loved it. Reading the book on my Kindle currently as well. Interesting read as it gets into the stats they used etc.

Saw Tintin last night, technically impressive and a hell of a lot of fun. Captain Haddock made the movie. Surprisingly my younger sister - an animation student - seemed bored but I was thoroughly wrapped up in it.

Hoping to see Hunger Games this weekend. Haven't been to the theater since Captain America. I think I remember where it is.

21 Jump Street - I personally had extremely high hopes for this and don't really understand all the hate around it. Leaving the room because a trailer for it came on? That's a little ridiculous, don't you think? I absolutely loved this movie and haven't laughed that hard for that long in quite a while. My favorite movie of the year and without a doubt my favorite comedy of the last few years.

The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo - Atmospheric mystery, but slow.
I had to speed it up in VLC (sometimes up to x2 faster) and needed subtitles to understand the Swedes. Solid performances by all. And
