5. Tim and Eric's Billion Dollar Movie - I know Tim and Eric's style of comedy is very polarizing. You either love it or you hate it there is no middle ground. I don't fault anyone for hating Tim and Eric because that seems like the normal reaction while being a fan seems like you might not be playing with a full deck of cards. I just so happen to be a huge fan Tom Goes to the Mayor and Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job! so I was really looking forward to this movie. This movie shares the same problems I had with the Mr. Show and Kids in the Hall movie, in that there are funny bits but the humor and tone of the show just fails to translate to the big screen.
4. MIB 3 - I will say it was better then MIB 2 and Josh Brolin does a hell of a Tommy Lee Jones impersonation. Granted this movie wasn't terrible but it really seemed like they failed to make the most out of the whole time traveling plot, the fun Mad Men like MIB headquarters, and sci-fi gadgets and weapons that the MIB of the 60's would use. Another problem is Jemaine Clement is kind of hard to take seriously as a villain especially since he seemed to be trying to look like the Macho Man Randy Savage.
3. This Means War - I got the "pleasure" of seeing this movie during a flight. I get that I am not a fan of romcoms but even for a romcom this is just a bad movie. As much as I think Tom Hardy is an incredible actor I think he should avoid doing comedies as they seem to be his Kryptonite. Who thought letting McG direct a romcom about two CIA agents abusing their power to stalk the same woman was a good idea? I hate to say it but the only bright spot in this turd was fucking Chelsea Handler who played Reese Witherspoon's wacky friend. This movie forced me to make a fucking compliment about CHELSEA HANDLER so it is pure evil.
2. The Dictator - I had forgotten this movie existed until I looked at list of 2012 releases. Borat and to a lesser extent Bruno worked because it dealt with real peoples interactions to these characters that intentionally played into our stereotypes of Middle Easterners and homosexuals. Without the element of reality to justify these caricatures as a way to shine a light on the ignorance and preconceived notions these real people have when interacting with Sacha Baron Cohen's characters they would seem pretty racist and homophobic respectively in a scripted comedy playing off of actual actors. This is why The Dictator is an awful movie that I tried to block out of my mind. This would of been my clear pick for number one if not for ...
1. Foodfight! - I think this may be the worst movie I have ever seen! Again words can't do this movie justice so here is another link to the trailer -
If you have watched any show on NBC or any Universal Studios owned channel then you have seen an ad for this show:
Just wow! It looks like a failed pilot for a bad early 90's sitcom. It is like someone at NBC heard that Veep was popular and well reviewed but rather then actually watching an episode just assumed it was a wacky sitcom about the Vice President and not a political comedy from the same people behind In the Loop. So said mystery NBC employee figures that whats better then a Vice President and her staff? A President and his entire WACKY FAMILY and fat slovenly idiotic mooching brother/in-law living in the MOTHER FUCKIN' White House! They also have the nerve to have some unheard of critic claim that the show is not only comparable but better then Modern Family. Say what you will about Modern Family (I love it) but it at least has a basis in reality. Does anyone remember the short lived Trey Parker and Matt Stone show That's My Bush!? This is literally that show played straight!
I'm not saying Jonah Hill is my favorite actor but people seem to really violently despise the guy. Where does this hate come from? Sure the guy has been in some shitty movies like The Sitter, Funny People, and Night at the Museum 2. He isn't the first actor to star in a couple of bad movie. George Clooney was in Batman and Robin and The Peacekeepers. Sam Rockwell was in Cowboys and Aliens, G-Force, and Gentleman Broncos. Michael Caine was in Jaws: The Revenge and a ton of other shitty movies.
Jonah Hill has been in some really great movies like 21 Jump Street, Cyrus, Moneyball,and Superbad. Along with numerous funny roles in various Judd Apatow films like Forgetting Sarah Marshall and Knocked Up. Is it because in most of his movies he typically plays a smarmy asshole who acts like he is better then everyone else despite being a loser? Danny McBride basically plays Kenny Powers in every movie he is in and nobody gives him shit.
Just like Dane Cook hate I just don't get it. Oh and for the record I am not really a fan of Dane Cook but I do think he is leagues better then guys like Jeff "It ain't racist if a puppet says it" Dunham or any of the Blue Collar Comedy guys.
To be upfront I have not seen The Talking Dead and all this is based on commercials shown during The Walking Dead.
A post show is something you do after a sporting event or after a season of a cable based reality show competition like a Top Chef or Project Runway not after every episode of a cable series. I like The Walking Dead but does it really need a post show analysis after every episode? The show seems pretty straight-forward with very little subtext. It would be one thing if it was a heady drama like Breaking Bad, Boardwalk Empire, or Homeland. Hell even the other popular cable horror series American Horror Story: Asylum is more deserving of the post show treatment because of how fucking batshit insane it is. Seriously you got alien abductions, demon possession, Nazi-like human experiments, zombie creatures, and the season has just started. It makes the first "season" look like they spent all their time on a boring ass farm in comparison.
Is it not insane that food stuffs that are normally inexpensive are sold for an exorbitant amount at the concession stand of a movie theatre? Why should a mug of rooted beer and a vessel of popped corn cost more then the price of a ticket for a moving picture show? Preposterous, I say! Even the confectioneries such as malted mothballs and gummified bear fetuses are over priced. These robber barons who own motion picture viewing houses are making quite the profit on consumables. For one knows you can't enjoy the works of a master thespian such as Sam Worthington without a Royal Crown Cola and some warmed soft pretzeled bread.
