Pineapple Express (2008)
Close to unbearable
this is a horrible and close to unbearable action "comedy". The script seems to have been written in 5 minutes and and was apparently never re-written or even proof read and was put straight into production. While the actors were hanging out on the set and smoked pot they sometimes even shot some film from time to time which was then roughly assembled and released to millions of theaters. Then gullible and simple people all over the planet went to see it and thought it was absolutely hilarious. Why did these young people love this movie so much and rated it a 7 on IMDb is because young people have grown up with "hilarious" American comedies like "Anchorman", "Hot Tub Time Machine", "Super Bad" and so on (the list is almost endless). By the standards of these movies "Pineapple Express" is equally amazing and hilarious. To people who know what a truly well written and funny comedy looks like it is a complete travesty though.
This is one of the best shows I have ever seen on Television. Mike White's writing is hilarious, heartfelt, depressing and the most truly enlightening pieces of art ever shown on television. This show is a masterpiece. Laura Derns "Amy" is a truly multifaceted creation. It's easy to to slap the term "crazy" on her and I don't believe she is crazy at all. She is a manifestation of the way many people feel in today's world. Helpless, confused, yearning for love and the meaning of it all. Amy especially wants to be good and do good in the world. To contribute in a positive way to give her own life meaning. It is very hard to engage real change in the world today especially when money rules all even at a time where climate change and economic breakdown shows that change is badly needed most companies will continue to chase the almighty dollar while facing certain doom in not too many years to come. I also think many people will think of Amy as crazy because she dares to yearn for change and is not above it to actually attempt to do something about it (whether its wrong headed or not is not the question here) One of the most amazing things about the show is that we hear Amys thoughts which many times may seem delusional but at the same time make total sense. She truly wants good things for everybody and the world. She single-mindedly wants to achieve change in herself and everything and everyone around her. Its a heartbreaking show that is often very funny and very dark. We should all be like Amy but we don't have the guts so we laugh at her and call her crazy. But who is the truly crazy one?
Fast Five (2011)
Waste of time, money, brain cells...shall I go on?
I have no problems suspending my disbelieve but this movie pushed it too far. I like the Transporter and Crank movies because they are ridiculous but also very entertaining but this movie was a piece of crap. The whole "Safe" pulling sequence was so horrible and stupid I couldn't believe my eyes. Also the movie is boring, the acting and the script are insulting. Who ever really likes this movie has some serious problems or is 5 years old. Sorry but its true. People who think movies like this are good are the reason Hollywood will continue to make drivel like this. ........................................................(My tenth line starts here.)
The Final Cut (2004)
Interesting premise but gets seriously muddled as the movie goes on. The ending is a MAJOR letdown. Subplot about Williams childhood is useless since we and he already know what happened.
The only truly interesting thing about this movie is that even though it never gets mentioned in the movie, the world the movie is set in is apparently in the future or a alternate world altogether. There is no more Oil to had in this world and therefore plastic does not exist anymore. Everything is basically made of wood. Computers, keyboard, TVs... pretty cool.
