Comedies anymore seemed to have "evolved" into people walking around saying the most random thing possible. Throw in some cussing and a bunch of sexual references and you have yourself a blockbuster. Some of these formula comedies pull it off decently where they don't seem like complete clones of either Anchorman or Dumb and Dumber, but for the most part there is nothing memorable about them other than a scene or two.

I guess I just find funny realistic situations more my type of humor than just random one-liners. Or maybe it just the actors that are in all these movies that I don't find funny since some of my favorite comedies are things like Marx brothers, Abraham/Zucker, and Brooks movies which are basically nothing but random one-liners and absurd situations.



You forgot that the really big budget ones can afford a famous cameo acting completely opposite to their traditional image. That or the Dan Band singing at a wedding.

If the Dan Band is in a movie, regardess of suckiness up to that point, I will give it a good rating.

Definitely. I can watch The Hangover, or whatever that movie was called about the kids trying to bring alcohol to a party and laugh a bit and generally enjoy it a little, but I always end up wondering how they make hundreds of millions of dollars and being very happy that I didn't spend the money to see it in the theater. I feel like the people who are spending their money on these crappy comedies are the same people who think lolcats are hilarious. Unfortunately, they make up like 80% of the population.

Into The Wild - 8.5/10 - Really enjoyed this. Great story, great characters, great soundtrack. It was a tad long, but that's really my only complaint.

Don't forget to have Seth Rogan's p.o.s fat friend attached, I think you get a 1½ for 1 deal with both of them.


My screenplay is about me and a friend during the civil war, we collect the bounties on each other but shoot the other guy off the hangman's noose. Then we chase a fortune buried in a grave, and some creepy guy with a moustache is trying to take the fortune for himself.

Clint Eastwood can play me, it's called Plot Plagiarism II; Electric Bugaloo. ;-7

The following goes for all genres. I think a lot of people give movies crappy reviews because they forked out a bunch of money to go to a theater and feel like the movie wasn't worth the small fortune they invested in it. And rightfully so. That's why I rarely go to the theater. 2012 was god awful, and I said as much. It was a crappy 4 dollar rental, had I spent $25+ to see it in the theater I would have felt like I was rapped in a crap filled hot tub time machine.

Which is exactly why I won't be running out to the theater to see Hot Tub Time Machine.

I don't go to a theater more than 6-7 times a year. Doesn't stop me from watching a ton of movies, though.

Great movie. ;-D

I've seen this one a few times; I'm still not tired of it.
