7,5/10 … The UK version is on my top 5 best/funniest sitcoms ever list, so I never watched this, the american version when it was first aired. And it took a while to shake of the ”let’s Americanize an already perfect show”. But when I forgot about the original, this is awesome. Especially the first 5 seasons.
I have no idea why Netflix makes it so hard to browse the different genres on their site. I started to look into it when it wanted to find movies from smaller countries in South America or the Middle-East but couldn’t in any easy way. Netflix will only recommend specific movies and genres if you’ve […]
I don’t know why but some artists death just hits me harder than others although I’m not that familiar with his older work, but Jerry Stillers passing on May 11th did. Maybe because I have proberly seen Seinfeld 10 times at least. He started his career in 1957, but I came to know his work […]
6/10 (Should have been 8/10) … I kind of love this movie, original, funny, but holy f**k was the lead women Betty Gilpin as Crystal, miscast. To me she completely destroyed the whole thing. Her body language, her way to deliver the lines all felt extremely constructed and absolutely 0% feel genuine or natural. Apparently she has 38 credits on iMdb, but I have only seen her in the smaller role in the TV show Nurse Jackie, and if I remember correctly, she did that just great, so I don’t think she’s a bad actress but sure as hell this was a miscast. So this could have been a 8-9/10 but since she has such a big part and killed it (not in the good sense) it goes down several steps. They should have gone with ….
So on this page I collect Movies/TV Shows I didn’t finish … because you know, life’s too short! I have so many movies and TV shows I want to see so I don’t have time looking through an entire movie that starts out bad.
10/10 … You could put this movie in the Sci-Fi, Comedy, Coming-of-Age or the Horror category, but to me this is just a perfect movie and I wouldn’t change a thing. It’s fun, it has some scares, it’s fast paced and even do the kids that the movie is about, are obnoxious little shits, you get to like them. A really original script and it seems strange to me that it took the director, Joe Cornish 8 years before he made another movie. The lovely Jodie Whittaker (as Sam) is just amazing and the always funny Nick Frost kills it.
Can he somehow adopt me, so he can be my grandfather?
3/10 … So I´m on a 1980’s T&A comedy bender right now, but crap like this is what can take me out of it and go on to the next topic. Extremely bad acting of 99% of the cast, slipping on banana peel comedy, boring as shit main girl and holier-tha-thou Scott (James Daughton), a director who doesn’t know when to end a scene or hide the boom microphone from being visible. Not even the nudity (or lack of) can save this one. Fuck this movie! Avoid!
8/10 … Only in a movie like this you can hear the now classic line from Betsy:
– “Bubba said we did it once but I was passed out so I can’t remember a thing.”
… The 80’s, not a #metoo movement as far as the eye could see.
8/10 … Betsy Russell (later known from all the “Saw” movies) as Tomasina ‘Tomboy’ Boyd is really beautiful, and why she’s called a “Tomboy” must be an 80’s thing. Just because she’s interested in cars, motorcycles, engines and not just dating guys, she’s a tomboy? WTF the 1980’s! 🙂
9/10 … So another Mr. Eisenberg movie, this one didn’t sound that inriguing when I read the storyline, I mean what can happen at a Karate school, he gets good at it!? … but holy f*’k was I wrong. But since I personally hate spoilers, and never even watch trailers. I will not tell you more, but be sure, things take a turn.
6/10 … Meep is the host of this podcast, and he is a very nice and warm host with a passion for 1980’s movies. And I really like people who’s not pretentious and can have a teen comedy on top of his best list and don’t feel the need to have something ”Oscars” there. When he’s joined by Jon Donahue it’s where it shines. Funny comments back and forth and both really passioned about movies. With that said, some episodes are unlistenable, like when he has his friend Jeffrey joining him. Try to listen to Episode 53: 1979 Movie Favourites, he has absolutly nothing to say and I couldn’t even finish the episode.
Here I collect every short review I made on Comedy movies. To see another genre look at the index page.
I’m the type of persons who hates spoilers, I more or less never watch trailers and don’t want to know anything about the movie more than the basic plot. So in that vein is also my reviews. They are more of short things that maybe can wake someones interest and make them discover the movie themselves.
