╬D Recommendation: "The Room"

“The Room” is our ╬D Recommendation of the week, Be Warn…this movie is so bad, its sooo good. We watch it so you don’t have to…but I recommend you should watch it at least once in your life.

LOWDOWN:
An American black comedy about love and passion, betrayal and lies. It depicts the depths of friendship and relationships in one’s life and raises life’s real and most asked question: “Can you ever really trust anyone?…Are you ready to see reflections of your life? A successful banker, Johnny, is madly in love with his fiancé, Lisa, and plans to be married next month. His plans take a horrid turn when he finds the truth about Lisa and the people surrounding him.

REVIEW:
Multiple drop off plots, awful diaolague, Horrific acting, but overal immensly entertaining. A massive bust at a dark drama that is terribly done, so bad that it was advertised as a black comedy when Wiseau never intended or wanted to market it as a black comedy. But really, it’s worth a view.

The Room is amazing! Not because of great acting, a great script, and a great director, but because of how awful it is! Tommy Wiesau wrote, directed, produced, and stars in this big beautiful mess of a movie. It is the ultimate “so bad, its good” movie. Go see for yourself especially with the RIFFTRAX track.

OVERALL: It’s not so much the bad acting, it’s the bizarre script, quirky characters, subplots that are mentioned, then never discussed again, an Incredibly odd and distracting soundtrack, Characters that are never seen again, football being played 3 feet away from each-other, And who can forget the chicken noises? Its a pretty damn hilarious movie, and even if you don’t find it funny, its still undoubtedly 10X more interesting than most films out there today

Movie Review: "TED"

Seth Macfarlene’s “TED” is our next selection for our latest movie review.

LOWDOWN:
Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane brings his boundary-pushing brand of humor to the big screen for the first time as writer, director and voice star of “Ted.” In the live action/CG-animated comedy, he tells the story of John Bennett, a grown man who must deal with the cherished teddy bear who came to life as the result of a childhood wish… and has refused to leave his side ever since.

Ted is a 2012 American comedy film, co-written, produced and directed by Seth MacFarlane, who stars in it along with Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis. The supporting cast includes Giovanni Ribisi, Joel McHale, Jessica Stroup, and Patrick Warburton. The film is the feature-length directorial debut of MacFarlane, produced by Media Rights Capital, and distributed by Universal Pictures.


REVIEW:
The film delivers a laugh a minute. Filled with 80’s references and a side splitting ongoing Flash Gordon joke that’s nostalgic and reliably funny, especially for 30 somethings like me. Ted is the friend I wish I had, funny, perverted and oh so huggable.

The movie is truly about friendship and coming of age and despite it’s shallow plot it executes it’s goal (making you laugh) with a comedic pace that definitely merits the time you’ll spend watching it. It will require some suspension of all reality on your part but then again what did you expect from a movie about a living, walking, talking, beer drinking, pot smoking, cursing, fighting and lady loving teddy bear?

The acting is good and Mark W. is amazing. (This film is definitely not for sheltered kids) and Mila Kunis gets prettier with age and did great as the girlfriend. I had a fun time. No boring parts. Great guest star “Flash Gordon”, (Sam J Jones) still knows how to party. Giovanni Ribisi does a super job as the creepy dad character. Even the narrater (Patrick Stewart) was funny!


OVERALL:
If I had to define this movie in two words, they would be hilariously awesome. Ted was just plain great, great story, great acting, hilarious jokes, and just an overally great feel to the film. Unlike many comedies nowadays this one actually gets you to care for the characters. Ted was just a great film. If you don’t enjoy crude humour then you won’t enjoy this at all. Every joke involved is crude, from rascist jokes, to smoking and drinking, to fat jokes, to every kind of crudeness you can think of, but what you have to realize though, is its a joke, nothing more, and frankly i found it absolutely freaking hilarious.

Movie Review: The Dark Knight Rises

This Week’s “On The Go” Movie Reviews selection is “The Dark Knight Rises“, the epic conclusion to the astonishing Christopher Nolan Dark Knight Trilogy.




LOWDOWN:

Having assumed responsibility for the crimes of District Attorney Harvey Dent in order to protect his reputation, Batman is chased into exile by the Gotham City Police Department. Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, the appearance of the mysterious Selina Kyle sets in motion a chain of events culminating in the arrival of Bane, a ruthless terrorist with plans to destroy Gotham City. With the future of the city at stake, Batman must emerge from his exile and confront Bane to bring about an end to his reign of terror.

REVIEW:

The TDKR is tightly woven with a thick and gritty story, full of action, suspense and surprises for our dearly loved Caped Crusader. The Dark Knight Rises most definitely leaves you wanting more but at least satisfied with a strong incredible and powerful ending. An entertaining and mesmerising masterpiece from Christopher Nolan with all members of the A-list cast giving solid performances throughout especially by Michael Caine and Joseph Gordon-Levitt who deliver very Powerful performances. I got to see a more human and emotional Bruce Wayne played by Christian Bale. TDKR shows bits from many of “Batman” comic storylines such as “No Man’s Land” and “Knightfall”. The best super hero movie I have ever seen in my lifetime by far. The emotional depth they put into every character was flawless, everyone had a back story you could relate to.  Its not every day a sequel surpasses the first movie and the final surpasses them all . The way they made every movie tie into each other was done masterfully. An epic conclusion to one of the best modern era trilogy’s.

OVERALL:
“The Dark Knight Rises” takes a seat at the adults table, while the Marvel franchises sit at the kiddy table. TDKR is dark, captivating, and entertaining to say the least. The action sequences are flawlessly executed, and the acting is in as high a gear as the Batmobile. Amazingly, awesomely, spectacularly, extraordinarily, stupendously mind-blowing splendid job from genius at work Christopher Nolan… everything in the movie is perfect as the Mona Lisa painting… trust me guys.. a must watch… Highly Recommended!!!
