Most sarcastic show I've ever seen.
I only knew David Cross from Arrested Development (which I loved by the way), I had no clue he did also stand-up comedy. So this was his first show for me and even though I thought it was a bit slow in the beginning I quickly changed my mind when I realized what a genious he is. I love sarcasm, it's my favorite kind of humor, but I never witnessed a more sarcastic show as Making America Great Again. Absolutely everything he says is sarcasm, the kind that makes you think about essential things, truths that don't like to be divulged. After reading thirteen reviews on here (12 bad ones and one good one) I'm not surprised at all that so many people hated it. You have to have some intelligence to understand his sarcasm and sadly the world is full of dumb and ignorant people, which shows in the negative reviews. But everybody is entitled to it's opinion, that's how it works. Anyway, if you like sarcasm and if you have a higher IQ than the average caveman there's a high chance you will enjoy this show.
Long Lost (2018)
Twisted and intriguing story.
Long Lost has some good things going for it. The best thing would be the plot, that is innovative and interesting at the same time. It changes from the same boring stories we're used to. The story is intriguing, it will keep you guessing what's going on, and it has some sexual tension building all the way through the movie. The acting wasn't bad at all, with some twisted characters that made it worth watching. The actual ratings it get are a bit harsh, it just deserves a higher rating.
The Hole (2001)
A bit predictable, no real mystery to me here.
Overall The Hole isn't a bad movie but in my humble opinion they could have made that story better. My wife liked the movie a bit more than me, she scored it a seven what in our family means we would watch it again but I wouldn't go that far, a six looked more appropriate. A mystery/thriller has to have some suspense, which I thought lacked in The Hole. I figured the whole thing out after half an hour and I'm not a new Sherlock Holmes or so. It was just a bit too predictable and the actors can do better normally, all of them were not that convincing. But it's watchable, perfect to kill time if you have enough of that.
Still not very convincing.
The first stand-up comedy I watched from Hannibal Buress was Comedy Camisado from 2016, I gave it a five star rating as I wasn't impressed at all, but I said I would give him another chance and watch another show of him to see if it was still that bland. Unfortunately it is, Animal Furnace is slightly better but still it isn't that great. I don't know what it exactly is, maybe his stage presence that makes him looking very shy. He barely looks the audience in the face, he has more a stare that looks upwards like he's trying to remember his lines, it just doesn't feel very natural. His jokes vary from mediocre to good, there's actually not one joke I remember and I just watched his show yesterday, so that's already not really a good thing. To me Hannibal Buress lacks stage presence, he's much too static, not interacting with the audience, and his jokes could just be better. I'll give it one more try with another show but I fear that will be the last one as I can't really see progress.
Pitch Black (2000)
Vin Diesel, not immediatly a guarantee for success if you ask me.
I normally do like these kind of movies, sci-fi with a bit of horror, like Aliens, so I had high expectations for Pitch Black. But there are problems with this movie. First of all you have Vin Diesel. With all due respect he's just not a good actor, he has the charisma of an amoeba. What people see in him I will never get. But it's not only him, the storyline is full of plot holes, little annoying things that make no sense. I'm not going to say anything about it, don't want to spoil a movie, but you'll figure it out by yourself when you watch it. It's a mystery to me why this movie gets such a high rating. I wish I liked it more but it's not the case.
Daniel Isn't Real (2019)
I was expecting a boring movie considering the ridiculous low ratings from some ignorant reviewers.
Rating this movie with the lowest score possible is just ridiculous. People should think a bit about it before rating movies, as a one star movie is just awful, almost unwatchable, and in this case Daniel Isn't Real is certainly watchable. I get it that not everybody will love it but just rate it honestly. If you like movies like Donnie Darko (2001) or Split (2016) you should enjoy this one as well. The other two mentioned are way better, no doubt about that, but Daniel Isn't Real has some good moments. The acting was good, really can't say anything bad about that even if I tried my best, the story is certainly entertaining to follow, the cinematography was way better than I expected it to be. Just do me a favor and rate your movies correctly, stop with those perfect tens for average movies, and certainly stop with insulting one star ratings for movies like this one.
The Acid House (1998)
Trippy like Trainspotting but not better.
The movie poster states that this makes Trainspotting looking like a mild-mannered youth comedy. I can see some resemblance here and there, the trippy way of filming, both movies based on novels by Irvine Welsh, or having Ewen Bremner acting in both, but Danny Boyle's trainspotting is just a bit better in my opinion. The Acid House is fun to watch though, who doesn't like to watch some white Scottish ghetto trash in their daily habitat? The Acid House is three different stories (segments), The Granton Star Cause, A Soft Touch, and The Acid House. Each story has his moments, some are better than others, The Acid House was the most trippy and crazy to watch, with an excellent Ewen Bremner (playing a junkie character is apparently what he does the best). The movie is a bit graphic, just the way I like it, but I can see some people (nerds and/or bible thumpers) getting offended. Anyway if you liked Trainspotting there is no doubt in my mind you will like this one as well.
More a book promotion than a comedy but pleasant to listen to.
Before watching More Fool Me I thought it was going to be a stand-up comedy so my mind was prepared for that. It's not what I got as it's more a book promotion than anything else. So not much comedy here, even though there are a couple funny passages, but it's always pleasant to hear Stephen Fry talk. He masters the English language (and some others) like nobody else and has interesting views on many topics so it is interesting to listen to him. His speech made me think about some essential things of life so for that alone it's worth a watch. Stephen Fry is an interesting person, one that stands out of the masses and that makes this speech not a complete waste of time but a speech where you could learn a thing or two, and learning a thing is always a bonus.
Sir, did you notice the lobster in your neck?
I wasn't expecting too much from this movie, horror and comedy mixed together isn't really the genre where you find a lot of gems. But in all fairness I was pretty surprised by the outcome. I had more laughs then with a standard comedy so for that alone it's worth the detour. The "lobster in the neck" had me in tears, that's going to be a cult phrase, for sure in my entourage. Storywise it is what it is, some people are entertained by this kind of stories (I was for sure), others will think it's ridiculous. The horror wasn't bad at all, the acting neither, but the humoristic touch is what makes this movie stand out from the rest. I recommend this movie, especially if you're a stoner and like an odd and weird story, nothing to take too seriously.
Let's Scare Jessica to Death (1971)
I think they tried to bore Jessica to death, me included.
I only watched this old movie because I read some very positive reviews about it on IMDb. Some pretending and I quote "it scared the bejesus out of me", sounded mysterious and promising, but the reality is that this movie is below average. Maybe fifty years ago it had something, which I doubt if to be honest, but to me it just didn't do anything. The acting is what to expect from movies from that time, it all looked forced and it's just not good. The story is very weak, not elaborated enough, not scary at all, in other words to me it's not a mystery/horror. The only mystery is how the hell did it got such high ratings? The horror is me wasting my time with movies like this one.
Definitely deserves a higher rating.
I have sincerely no clue what other reviewers thought that was confusing about this movie. I just don't get it. To me Johnny Frank Garrett's Last Word was much better than what I expected from a movie with a title like that. Simon Rumley did a great job directing this interesting story, the cinematography was spot on, made it all look very professional for a low budget movie. The way it was shot is better than most of the movies in this genre, the sound effects fitted perfectly to create an evil ambiance. The horror parts were certainly good enough to keep any horror fan watching it till the end. The acting wasn't bad either so to me this movie deserves a much higher rating than it actually gets. A good surprise for me.
Bert Kreischer: The Machine (2016)
One of those comedians I want to see all his shows from now on.
Surprisingly I'm the first one to review this stand-up comedy from Bert Kreischer. Surprisingly because I thought it was really good and I would have thought like minded people would do the same. I didn't know him before this show but I will definitely look up his other shows as The Machine got me in tears a couple times. My favourite stand-up comedians are George Carlin, Jim Jefferies, Ali Wong, Ricky Gervais, Jim Gaffigan, Ron White, Frankie Boyle, just to name a few. If one of those makes you laugh I'm pretty sure you will enjoy Bert Kreischer as well. He's really not afraid of some self deprevation, shirtless in front of an audience he brings his jokes in a way everybody gets his attention, some good hilaric stories, with good mimics and timing. I would pay money to go to one of his shows, it would be money well spend.
Not bad for 1984
I wasn't expecting much from this movie, considering its age and subject matter, but I have to say I was entertained. It was funny to see what they thought the future would be like back then. The two guys I found quite funny, yes its a bit of stupid comedy, but if you like that kind of stuff, its a laugh. And the whole idea they had about what happens in the future , where there are not men anymore and only women, of course its ridiculous, but an entertaining plot.
Deon Cole: Cole Hearted (2019)
Another good discovery in the stand-up comedy.
I didn't know Deon Cole before this show but I will for sure look out for his next shows from now on. Physically he reminds me a bit of Lionel Ritchie and a bit of Eddy Murphy but then much better build. He's quite agile during his show, which I like, it's much better then a static performer, it creates a good interaction with the audience. His jokes are sometimes subtle but certainly effective, but most of the time it's very straightforward, the kind of comedy you like or not, in my case I liked it a lot. There are a couple passages where he starts preaching a bit, and that was to me the weak spot of his otherwise excellent show. He should just stick to bringing his jokes like he did most of the show and he will for sure never fail to entertain.
Annabelle Comes Home (2019)
I like all those movies, The Conjuring, The Nun and Annabelle so give me more.
I see a lot of people complaining again, whilst in fact there is not much to complain of. What did those people expected to see? To me this next movie from Gary Dauberman is like all the others, Annabelle, The Nun, or even It, it's entertaining, certainly for this genre. There are the obliged jump scares, some good creepy characters, the soundtrack is spot on to add the necessary ambiance that lacks in so many other horror movies. Nothing beats good sound effects in a horror movie, to me it's the key point, and in this movie it just works very well. The acting was also good so again no complains here. I'm not scared of any horror movie, so that's not where I get my thrills, I just like to see my wife getting scared, that's funny as hell, and Annabelle Comes Home delivered that perfectly for me.
A Dog's Breakfast (2007)
A bit cheesy but a good laugh.
David Hewlett did a good job writing and directing this movie. The story isn't flawless, could have been better, but overall A Dog's Breakfast is a guarantee for some good laughs. His acting and physical appearance reminds me of Will Forte from The Last Man From Earth. It's not as funny as that amazing show but it's certainly worth a watch. A nice unexpected little twist gave this movie a better ending than I expected. Don't expect a high budget comedy though, it's all very simple but it works.
Soul Hunters (2019)
The ULTIMATE crap! Rigged by fake reviews.
We have a new contender for worst movie ever. I watched thousands of movies and this one is definitely in the top ten worst movies I ever watched. Unlike the fake reviewers on here that only reviewed this movie because they are friends with somebody that participated in this garbage I reviewed thousands so you've been warned. From the first second of the movie you already get that nasty feeling you made a big mistake here, and if you're like me, watching every second once you started watching a movie, no matter how bad it is, you are definitely going to need a vomit bucket. The acting is out of control bad, it's cringing to watch. The script looks like it's written by some bible thumper, it's beyond bad. In fact the whole production is bad, the cinematography looks amateuristic, the soundtrack couldn't be worse, there's just nothing good about this movie. I laughed more than a few times, not for the comedy, but with the bad quality of this stinker. Every time you think a scene couldn't get worse they managed to make the next one worse, that's the only achievement they made here.
Terminator: Dark Fate (2019)
I'm still waiting for a bad Terminator movie.
I don't know what's wrong with people nowadays, they're just too spoiled in their daily lives, too critical about everything, always having an opinion about things they don't even understand. What were the negative reviewers expecting from this movie? Why do they even watch it if they are so done with it since Terminator 2: Judgment Day from1991? I agree that they will never reach the same level as the second movie, or even the first Terminator, but this fifth movie is certainly not the worst. Terminator movies are always a guarantee for some good action scenes, quality CGI's, and a story that is fast and entertaining. So is it also with Terminator: Dark Fate. Some actions scenes are over the top (especially the ones were 'normal' humans are involved as no one would ever survive any of those scenes, or at least be seriously injured) but if you can get passed that you're in for two hours of wild entertainment. Maybe some things don't add up in the story (how can Arnold Schwarzenegger grow a beer belly for instance?) but I don't pay too much attention to that, I just relax and enjoy the ride. As a Terminator fan I will stop watching it when it's badly done and in this case it wasn't so bring on the next one if there ever will be one.
If you're not Indian it's going to be a difficult show to appreciate.
I'm surprised I'm the first one to review this stand-up comedy. I would have thought that at least a couple Indians would have done it before me. I'm pretty sure they would like it much more than me as his show is full of Indian references, things I don't know anything about and so his jokes are sometimes very difficult to understand. His language is also not the easiest thing to understand for an European like me and an American like my wife. Even though it was subtitled I still thought it wasn't easy to understand. The jokes that I did understand weren't that great, they just don't work if you're not from India. I doubt he would have success anywhere else than in India, for that his show is just to regional.
The bad things about this movie are the negative reviews.
It's always funny to read all those negative reviews from haters. Those basically come from people that are very hard to please or that are never satisfied. You could make the best movie ever, they still would feel the urge to bash it. Not that Us is the best movie ever, far from that, but as a horror/thriller/mystery it's sure as hell entertaining. Okay the story contains flaws, things that don't add up, and that's why it could have been better, but it's still good enough for a nice intriguing movie night. The acting was not bad at all, especially from Lupita Nyong'o when she played Red. Some haters hated the twist at the end, maybe it wasn't necessary, I thought of it, saw it coming, and still was satisfied enough with Us. If you just want an easy creepy movie then Us is worth watching. i don't regret watching it and I'm sure I won't be the only one.
I Am Mother (2019)
That's how you make an interesting sci-fi movie.
Good little sci-fi movie that kept my attention during the entire movie. I Am Mother is the perfect example that you can make an entertaining sci-fi without having a huge budget. The cast is very small, basically it's just two actresses (Clara Rugaard and Hilary Swank) and another (Rose Byrne) for the voice of Mother, but it's all it needed to make it interesting. They all did a good job playing their respective characters. It's the kind of stories I enjoy, post apocalyptic ambiance, robots and/or artificial intelligence taking over. It's all well done, intriguing enough to stand out from the rest, much better than some high budget science fiction movies. I can't see much people disliking this movie, not if you are into this genre.
Marriage Story (2019)
Not for me, too long, too simple, too boring.
I guess I have a completely different taste of movies when I see the high ratings Marriage Story gets. I can't say I did enjoy this movie, on the contrary. For that the story is much too weak, mostly boring to watch, and certainly way too long for the simplicity of the story. I won't say anything bad about the actors. Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver are good actors but that doesn't make it a good movie. As for the comedy, I suppose they meant how they made satirical fun about lawyers and the whole divorce thing, it wasn't great even though I think the same about that subject. I laughed maybe once or twice, the kind of laugh no one will ever notice. The end credits appearing on my television screen was the best thing of the evening, I was finally done with this one. Next!
Killing Eve (2018)
Captivating and entertaining.
My ratings are after watching the first season completely. Killing Eve is entertaining, never a dull moment, good action scenes, and decent acting. Jodie Comer as Villanelle steals the show, her character is the most interesting and Jodie Comer did a killer job playing her character. Sandra Oh, not the best looking woman (credits for British series that employ "normal" looking actors rather than the American "dream" people) did also a great job playing her character Eve Polastri. Storywise it's all entertaining, sometimes a bit far fetched or not making complete sense, but if you look passed that it's certainly entertaining. Looking forward to watch the second season to discover where they're heading to.
I can't say I enjoyed this movie, even not with all those goodlooking women shaking their bits.
Hustlers, inspired by true events if you have to believe them, but the truth is that I have serious doubts that this all happened like they showed us. Men (pathetic ones) losing big amounts of cash by watching women (goodlooking ones) shaking their ass and flashing their boobs, all that without having intercourse, that's just really hard to believe. Other than the story, that is pretty boring and repetitive, the only thing you get to see is a bunch of women being full of themselves, having giggling pajama parties by themselves, rather boring to watch if you ask me. As for the acting, it is what it is, Jennifer Lopez isn't and will never be a good actress, she has a killer body, certainly for her age, but acting is just not one of her skills. As for the moral of the story, if a bunch of men drugged women and stole all their money they would all be in jail, in this movie you just get the feeling the law isn't the same for both sexes.
As a documentary of an entertainer it fails to entertain.
I guess I'll be the first one to review this documentary about Robert Klein. To be honest it wasn't great, not the kind of documentary I enjoy. It's just way too repetitive, you basically just get extremely positive feedbacks from other comedians, that if you have to believe them wouldn't have become comedians if they didn't watched Robert Klein before their own careers. The storyline states "...this is a hilarious and poignant look at the life and career of Robert Klein...". Let me immediately correct that, it's not hilarious, far from it. When I watch a comedy or a stand-up comedian I want to be entertained, have some good laughs, in other words a pleasant time. In this case I barely laughed, wasn't entertained, and certainly didn't give me the feeling of having a pleasant time. You can't even determine if Robert Klein was a good stand-up comedian or not as you just get a couple seconds here and there from his shows. It would have been better with larger sequences of his shows, so we could have made up our mind ourselves. Now you just get an endless idolization by other comedians, that becomes quite repetitive and boring to watch. It's just not a good documentary about a man that probably deserves better.
