Crop And Save
August Rush (2007)
This was a good movie. I saw it at a special premiere screening for academy members only, in Burbank. The cast did a good job and so did the director. My favourite part of the movie was the soundtrack which is really, really good! I always enjoy movies where the actors actually sing the songs themselves (not just in musicals but actors in films such as Walk the Line, which is an amazing film). Music is obviously a very big part of this movie and carries it for the most part but when you consider the movie as a whole it feels a bit lacking in the story department. All of the performances are good and like I said they sing their own songs themselves and do it well. A solid effort.
Community is a fantastic comedy series. As far as recent comedy shows I think it ranks right up there with Arrested Development as one of the best modern comedy shows and even should be considered among the best comedy TV series of all time. Not saying it's at the very top but it does deserve consideration. A lot of people --- mostly older people --- will not get the kind of humor that is offered in this show. It's very off beat and surreal and introspective. The comedy mostly comes from the characters. Jeff Winger who is going back to an awful community college to re-earn his law degree after his employers found out that he didn't actually earn one in the first place and he was disbarred. The hippie chick Brita who is Jeff's romantic interest and who is into every vegan/peace/environmental/feminist cause that comes her way. Super pressured to succeed innocent girl Annie. The two wackiest characters of all are a football star in high school (same school as Annie) who isn't the brightest bulb in the box and a wannabe filmmaker named Ahmed who is constantly turning their everyday adventures into TV shows, often narrating them or taping them for his bizarre film class projects. An older super sweet Christian divorcée who tries to keep everyone together and everything harmonious, and Chevy Chase is back in his old hilarious form in a new role, as a full of himself, totally out of touch and inappropriately racist/sexist/elitist, pompous heir to a napkin fortune. The characters around them like the Dean and their Asian-American Spanish teacher are also great. Check this show out and you might not get it but if you do you will probably be immediately hooked like we were!
This Hour Has 22 Minutes (1992)
How S***ty has this show gotten?
I can't believe this show hasn't been cancelled yet, as bad as it has gotten over the past many years the last 2 to 3 years have been just pathetic! The cast is tired and old, by that I mean they are doing the same old characters and jokes. The writing is obviously terrible with really bad jokes you are probably already thinking of the punchlines for before they get to them on the show. They just have turned completely into Royal Canadian Air Farce and that should be very embarrassing for a show that once was so much better than that with sharp writing and a great cast that could do many characters and didn't keep doing the same things over and over. I am so tired of looking at these people on this show, they need new blood, new actors and definitely new writers too because these people obviously just don't care any more, but after 20 years or however long it's been who can blame them? They took forever to cancel Royal Canadian Air Farce so please CBC before it gets any worse cancel this show or replace everyone with new people who have new ideas!
Con is a terrible show. Why are they running it again? When I came on here to complain about it I figured it was just a bad new show and now I find out that it was on in like 2005? Maybe that helps explain why it seems old and unpolished but why on earth are they rerunning this again when judging by how bad the show obviously is and all the negative comments and votes here people obviously didn't like it so why are they rerunning this again? they should bring back new episodes or reruns of flight of the conchords or something else instead, or old kids in the hall or Monty python or sctv, comedy channel here in Canada just can't seem to get it together, all their shows suck.
I Watched This
I wish they had it on TV. I loved it when I was a kid and my mom introduced me to it, I remember I hated Happy Days the real show but this animated show I loved for some reason and especially Fonzie. Fonzie could just punch things and make them work, etc, I remember I wanted a black leather jacket and slicked my hair down for Halloween and I used to try to fix stuff that was "broken" by punching it, like the TV. Really my dad would just turn it on when I punched it but it was fun. I wish I had pictures, I must have looked like a tool. Anyway this is turning into a thing about my life instead of the show but there's not much to say, like the other reviewer said it's just Happy Days for kids, with the same characters etc, just silly stories and adventures. Great show for family/kids.
The Night Listener (2006)
I thought this movie would be a watch-once-and-discard, straight to DVD type video that I would probably regret watching. I got it for 99 cents at the almost empty Blockbuster that's going out of business on the corner, from the discount bin. Instead I was pleasantly surprised by a pretty good movie. It's not great by any means but it actually did keep me guessing, which I like because most movies are way too predictable. Because it's not a big Hollywood movie you know anything is possible, and you think you have it figured out but aren't quite sure. The acting is very good by everyone and especially Robin Williams who plays it pretty cool in this role. He is a pretty good actor in more dramatic and emotional stuff when he wants to be. This movie's worth seeing.
Dan for Mayor (2010)
Seriously, How'd This Get Renewed?!?!?!!
This is one of the worst shows on TV. I know that a lot of people were gaga over Corner Gas but this show just sucks! For one thing if they were going to do another show about Hank Yarbo from Corner Gas why not just keep doing Corner Gas instead? Because that show had other characters in it that were interesting and funny. Instead we have Hank Yarbo as Dan who runs for mayor despite the fact he's a drooling idiot to try to impress his ex-girlfriend. He's the same character! Also the other characters are all terrible and terribly acted, none of them are funny and the jokes are all terrible too. Wow what is coming to Canadian TV?
Comedy Inc. (2002)
Get It Off My TV
This show is so terrible that I am 100 percent sure that I am now stupider for having watched it at all. This show is so badly acted and written and awful in every possible way that I can't believe it actually was put on TV, it looks like the CBC just gave a few video cameras and 20 bucks for props to a group of idiots who thought they were funny and told them to make a show. Nothing on this show has ever been funny at all, the entire show is a waste of time and money and who is going to give me back the couple of hours I have wasted watching this show and trying to figure out how and why it made it onto TV? I hope that it is over and that they never rerun it again.
Patch Adams (1998)
Patch Adams is a good movie and it is good for audiences of all ages, if you like Robin Williams you will probably get a kick out of this movie. It is dramatic like a lot of parts that Robin Williams has been playing for many years now in efforts to win awards etc instead of just doing crazy comedies, but there are also a lot of funny parts in it and the drama is not hitting you over the head too much even though it is about very serious subjects like sick kids who are passing away from terrible diseases. There are unexpected parts that I won't spoil and touching parts and also parts that are very funny, like Robin Williams talking with and entertaining the sick children.
Arrested Development (2003)
Arrested Development was an awesome show and I still can not believe that they would actually cancel such a great show as this. It won and deserved to win even more, tons of awards. It was the best comedy series I have seen on TV in a very long time and all the actors were perfect in their roles right down to just the small guest parts they would bring in, the style and narrative was awesome. I can't wait for the movie to come out but I'm afraid it won't be as good, other shows that got cancelled too soon like Futurama and Family Guy have been less good or even terrible since they came back so I hope the same thing does not happen to this brilliant TV show.
