Ghost Hunters (2004)
Good for a laugh
I mean come on, the show is fake and their so called evidence would prove nothing in court, The only thing this show is good for is a few laughs as you see their reactions of supposed ghosts. And the other thing it's good for is seeing locations that you likely never would visit. The only reason to film at night and have all the lights off is to make it more spooky. Plus the add some spooky music to make it seem more exciting than it really is. Most of the show is just them walking around in the dark filming with night vision cameras looking for some paranormal activity. And most of this evidence is composed of some easily faked audio evidence. Most of this audio is just static but they say they hear voices. The video evidence is also nothing spectacular. Again easily faked or subjective.
But if you're looking for anything serious or profound regarding paranormal then I would look elsewhere.
Complete bore, Robot Chicken & Family guy does it better.
Oh my, what a complete bore of a movie.
Oh my where to start? Well first off is Dan Fogler who is this filthy looking long haired dude who looks way to old to be hanging with these guys. Then we have Chris Marquette who is this Star Wars nerd who takes it way too seriously and to throw in some unneeded drama we learn that he has cancer. Jay Baruchel plays the stereotypical nerd with glasses. Sam Huntington plays the only character who seems to have grown up at all. In fact I would have liked to see a movie about his character at the car dealership and his dad.
The road trip is composed of typical hijinks such as a fight between them and Trekkies, the gay biker bar, the getting high camp fire scene, getting thrown in jail and a side trip to Vegas. None of it laugh out loud funny. Most of it is just embarrassing.
The highlight is the cameos by Billie Dee Williams, William Shatner, .Carrie Fisher, Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. And when the cameos are the highlight you know that the film is a bore. You would think that they at least would throw in a George Lucas cameo. If you're going to make a movie about Star Wars you need to include the man who created it.
The entire cancer subplot wasn't needed at all. It simply doesn't work for me and actually seems forced into the story.
I swear I laugh more at the Robot Chicken or Family Guy spoofs than this movie.
Ghost Hunters International (2008)
Good for a laugh or two
This show is only good for a few laughs and that's about it. Otherwise it's mostly composed of watching them roam around in some locale while being filmed in a weird night-vision that gives them evil looking eyes.
In an average episode they will proclaim such things as "Did you hear that?" or "I think I saw something." or "I saw a shadow over there." No real evidence is really shown that really shows a ghost, it's mostly some so called audio evidence of a knock or some voice that is just about impossible to make out. The photographic evidence too is nothing of note as it's composed mostly of some shadow or mist.
Somehow it reminds me of the opening of Ghostbusters, where they are investigating the ghost at the library and when they encounter her they don't know what really to do and run out. Somehow I can imagine the same thing would happen to these guys if they actually saw a real ghost, they would run away in a heartbeat.
About the only good thing about the show is seeing locales that one will likely never be able to visit, and for that I give it 2 stars.
Nobody's Perfect (1990)
College cross-dressing film that drags.
A film that tries to be a college version of Tootsie but ultimately fails to make the grade. While the film attempts to tack on some serious moments, it feels forced and ruins the film's flow. For a cross-bending comedy it sorely lacks in that regard. I really only laughed at the physical exam scene, other than a few other moments that made me chuckle. The film just sits there, it's dull and not really funny.
Also the entire plot fails in that nobody can tell that Stephanie looks like Stephen. Stephanie just looks like a boy with a bad wig on and dime store makeup applied.
Ultimately the film fails to hit the ball out of the court.
King Kong (1976)
If you like King Kong as a sexual pervert, you'll love this version
Instead of the innocent, almost child-like beast in the 1933 classic or the last of his kind and platonic love in the 2005 version here Kong is turned into nothing more than a pervert who lusts after an air-headed actress named Dwan. And instead of bashing Dwan to the ground and stomping her to death, Kong and us are forced to hear Dwan spew some of the must gut wrenching dialog ever written. And Dwan sets back the liberation movement by 50 years with her dim witted and damsel in distress shtick. Dwan even enjoys it when Kong fondles her with his large finger and blows on her. Disgusting!!
And get this the villain is big oil. Boo!! Hiss!! The big oil exec, Fred Wilson, is our wimpy villain. This guy is so wimpy he hides behind the gate and barks orders to his men on the other side in their attempt to rescue the kidnapped Dwan. And he's almost as dim witted as Dwan when the oil find he's been hoping for turns out to be a bust he gets the bright idea of capturing Kong and bring him back to the U.S. in some stupid traveling attraction as the oil company's new mascot. Really? Smart move.
Then our human hero is Jack Prescott who has to be the most unlikable hero I've ever seen on screen. I really don't know how anyone can like a hero who sneaks aboard the ship via bribery, becomes a stowaway and lies and steals his way throughout the film. Plus he's the most arrogant, smug know it all ever.
And that's just the characters. Then you have the laughable effects that are hardly any better than your average Japanese Godzilla film. How this film ever won an Oscar for Visual Effects I'll never know.
I used to be able to find this film somewhat enjoyable, but as I grow older I find more and more wrong with it.
This is a King Kong sized turkey.
