The Andy Milonakis Show (2005)
My IQ drops 20 points while watching this show
"The Andy Milonakis Show" now represents the bottom rung of American culture. It involves a 29-year old posing as a 14-year old doing the most immature stunts imaginable. For instance, in one sketch, he walks up to people randomly on the street and asks them idiotic questions. Where's the originality in this? At least when Tom Green did random stuff in shopping malls or on sidewalks, a) he didn't pretend to be 14 and b) he put some effort into his humor. There's nothing witty or clever about this show. Any freak can make drivel like Andy Milonakis does. For crying out loud, he got his start putting his routines on the Internet!
As much as I am annoyed by Andy, I am even more disappointed by producer Jimmy Kimmel. This one time genius, who brought us the unforgettable Karl Malone segment on "The Man Show", has degraded himself to supporting no-talents. Way to go Jimmy. Your creativity will be sorely missed.
Napoleon Dynamite (2004)
Artistic while still absolutely hilarious
This is one of those comedies where you find yourself laughing non-stop. The person who wrote Napoleon Dynamite really played out the eccentricities of each of the characters. We have Napoleon, who lives with his chat room addicted older brother Kip at their grandmother's house, Pedro, a recently arrived immigrant who has an unusual way of getting to the ladies, Uncle Rico, obsessed with football and time travel, plus all the other minor characters, like the owners of the farm where Napoleon works. The popular students at Napoleon's school pick on Napoleon and Pedro for being nerdy, but unlike in the typical high school movie, this isn't overplayed. Rather, the movie focuses more on each of the character's personalities and how they live life.
This movie is like the 1986 Corey Haim movie Lucas if the people from Reno 911 made it. 10/10
While some of the segments on this show are unfunny (Time Pervs), most of them make me laugh so hard, I nearly have a heart attack. I like how they portray George W. Bush. I thought "George W. Bush's Punk'd" was one of the funniest things ever, seeing him wear a Donnas cap. I also thought the Yogi Bush skit was hilarious. When Yogi Bush sees the controls for the oil pump, he says "It's like one of them Nintendo games" and treats the controls like such. But nothing tops Samuel L. Jackson's PSAs, "The More You F***ing Know," where he goes nuts on some poor kids. No celebrity is safe from ridicule here, not even John Kerry, star of "John Kerry's Pro Snowboarder."
9 out of 10
Fainaru fantajî X (2001)
Brilliant work of art
This game really pulled me in. At first I was like, this is just going to be another video game. But I started identifying with the main character Tidus and his feelings for Yuna. I really liked how this game made me laugh at times and made me emotional at other times.
Final Fantasy X is in my opinion, a brilliant combination of Star Wars, Lord of the Rings, and the Golden Compass trilogy of books. It's like a romance novel for straight men.
My Boss's Daughter (2003)
Who cares if this is just an Ashton Kutcher vehicle? (Spoilers possibly)
Yeah, I heard all about how they delayed the release of this movie until Ashton Kutcher was popular enough. At first glance, this movie may sound like another "Gigli" flick. But it's certainly not that.
The key to understanding this film is that it's a comedy. I couldn't stop laughing during this movie. Whoever comes up with these jokes should get some kind of award. A coked-out owl named O.J. has to be one of the funniest things I have seen in any recent movie. And it's just incredible all the damage that gets done to the boss's mansion. Everytime something in the house breaks, you just want to burst out laughing and eagerly anticipate what's going to shatter next.
This movie may not be Oscar material. But it certainly is far from crap. And while the studio execs should not have delayed its release, you shouldn't think of this as a promotional tool for Ashton Kutcher.
Riven: The Sequel to Myst (1997)
An excellent alternative to drugs (POSSIBLE SPOILERS)
This game is trippy to the tenth power. The creators of this game are absolute geniuses. The world of Riven totally sucked me in.
First, there are the awesome graphics and sound. The world seemed so real. The various environments, with the odd sunner creatures and the puzzled villagers here and there, made me feel like I was on some true island fantasy world. Each island had its own unique beauty to it. Riven was a place where I would build my vacation home on anyday.
I also love the plot. The cold character of Gehn was so fascinating. How he tries to trick you and how he keeps his subjects under a tight grip. He's even hooked on frog extract!
The one thing I hated was how the puzzles were nearly impossible. You'd have to be John Nash to beat the puzzles without using a cheatbook.
But that doesn't really matter. Riven has this environment I've never seen in any TV show or movie. Well, I have yet to try Myst III: Exile. But Riven is just so colorful, so crisp, it almost makes me mad that I'll never actually be able to visit it for real.
I found this game at a library benefit sale for $3 (it was used). A very good deal for me. I was very entertained by the fantasy environment of this. It was a true escape from reality. Sure the graphics were quite cartoony. But nevertheless, I had a lot of fun with this. I recommend this to people who love a good challenge.
Most irritating show ever
This show makes The Anna Nicole Show look wholesome. "Banzai" consists of a string of retarded, unfunny "stunts," where the home viewers are supposed to bet on the outcome. Maybe if we got some prize money for every time we were right, this show would be worth watching.
Instead, the obnoxious stereotypical Japanese accents just make my head want to explode. How do the guys at Fox get away with this rubbish? If they replaced the faux Japanese "warrior" people with African-American plantation type people and renamed the show "Let Me Axe You Sometin'," the show wouldn't even air!
The folks at Fox need to get lobotomies and bring back quality shows like "Family Guy" instead of this unoriginal nonsense.
This is one the first network for men?
I expected to laugh when I saw the first episode of the revamped version of Ren and Stimpy. But it wasn't funny, just plain disgusting. Blatant gay sex? C'mon. I thought this programming was geared towards straight males. This show might fare better on Comedy Central. But not amidst shows like Stripperella and Gary the Rat, as well as reruns of Highlander and Baywatch.
Family Guy (1999)
What were the FOX CEOs smoking?
This is one show whose life was ended way too soon. Despite being Emmy material and one of the funniest cartoons ever, Fox had to replace this with Celebrity Boot Camp and Joe Millionaire garbage.
Family Guy is one of the few things in life that is more addictive than crack. After five minutes of one episode, you'll be hooked. Seth MacFarlane comes up with the craziest concepts. A talking baby bent on killing, a dog who loves cocktails, plus the funniest and most random dialogue ever. I liked this one flashback scene where Peter, who's 13 years old, asks his teacher, "Why did the dinosaurs die?" His teacher responds, "'Cuz you touch yourself at night." I was laughing so hard when I saw that scene!
Seriously, I don't know what Fox sees in pure rubbish like Paradise Hotel and Mr. Personality. I'm sick of shows where all the people are unfunny, unoriginal, supermodel material. Family Guy is absolute genius.
