Superbad was freaking hilarious. It was pretty much two hours of "I smoked the marijuana like a cigarette" and you can't go wrong with that!

Superbad

Yeah, it was pretty hilarious. The one joke that didn't sit with me very well was the uhm... stain joke. Loved the '70s funk soundtrack, character development (maybe the first teen-centric movie where they actually function like real human beings... well, at least close to it.) and McLovin. Definitely worth a watch now or on DVD.

Rear Window

This was my first full Hitchcock movie experience and it was pretty good. The pace is a little slow by today's standards, but the dialogue and character development is what kept me watching. There's hot, there's beautiful, and there's Grace Kelly.

FECKING "HOT FUZZ".

Review: I saw this film for the first time tonight, and, while I can't help but think that a number of the jokes went over my head (plus I was watching it on a semi-choppy internet stream), I must say that I thought it was great. One of the most most absurd films I've ever come across, its parodies are humorous and accurate. It took me a while to get the "joke" of the film, but once I did, it all fell into place.

"That's not murder...it's ketchup!"

The special effects were wonderfully over-the-top, and the blood was humorously fake in a comic book kind of way. I adored the shootout towards the end of the film, and loved the intense camera work in the final store sequence. Of course, it didn't really need to be intense, but that's what separates Hot Fuzz from lesser comedies.

"You're off the f***ing CHAIN!"

The acting? Well, the acting fit the bill. It was atrocious from a standard viewpoint, but in this film, it ends up being delightfully campy. The facial expressions of Nicholas Angel were nothing less than hysterical, as he looked as if he were in utter disbelief at the most obvious new revelation. Of course, as a comedy, the jokes are supposed to be way up front, but most of the time I was either smiling or thinking to myself "DAMN, this is funny stuff!" without actually bursting out laughing (though I did about 5 or 6 times and 'd at least once), so I am dropping the rating accordingly. Regardless, this film is awesome.

"I feel I should say something smart"

"You don't have to say anyfing at all."


8/10

I loved Hot Fuzz...

I don't know why but the part where he runs through the fence had me laughing the hardest... I watched it several times over and over again...

Good Will Hunting

I forgot how good this movie was. Last night, I just sat in front of the tv and I was looking in my dvd collection and saw the disc. I thought, I haven't seen this movie since the movie theater.....so I played it.

10/10
Superb.
One of my top 10 of all time.

Agreed. That part seems to be one of the film's most low-brow moments humor-wise, but I laughed for a good 5 seconds at that.

Batman Begins

After the current activety surrounding the Dark Knight I decided to watch it again.
Easily one of the best superhero films out there.

"Superbad"

Review: I didn't go into this movie with terribly high expectations. The reviews for this film have been great so far, but the trailers did nothing for me, and it just seemed too vulgar. It is a vulgar film, but it gets bonus points for painting an accurate (as far as I can tell) picture of high school.

The plot: nerdy kids want sex and go to a party. Original? No, but the characters themselves save this film from being a boring retread. The acting is strong and convincing. Whoever did the casting should be proud.

The script, however, is a mixed bag. There aren't enough show-stoppingly funny moments, and the wittier, more subtle moments might be too obscene for some. The funnier first 1/3 gives way to a meandering, plodding second half and beyond, and I don't feel the film ended all that strongly.

What saved it? It was pretty darn funny. The McLovin B-plot was nothing short of excellent, and Seth was pure hilarity most of the time, though he occasionally crossed the line between amusing and obnoxious. I related to Evan the most, and thought his character balanced out the film well.

So, Superbad wasn't Supergreat, or even Supergood. It was more like regular good.

7/10

I thought the ending scene in the mall was great and captured the essence of the movie perfectly.

It's not that it didn't work, it's just that I didn't find it all that funny. Nothing after the last McLovin scene was all that funny, except for the credits.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who found it lacking.
