Same old not funny Apatow...
I really have been trying to figure out what exactly is it that people find funny in Judd Apatow's work and I still can't. It's just not funny, it just doesn't force one laugh out of me. None of it. How has this guy been able to create a career out of so many unfunny shows is beyond me. It's like listening to the actors say too many lines per minute and desperately trying to make it sound funny, but the material they're working with isn't helping them much.
I guess I might as well stop trying and agree to disagree with folks who like this stuff. Not everyone will find everything funny I guess, it's just sad how low the comedies have fallen. Awhile back, something like this wouldn't even be considered a comedy, let alone a "hilarious" one.
Paranormal Activity 2 (2010)
The question is - why?
The scariest thing about this movie is that they actually made it and in the end it just makes me want to ask why, oh why. While the first one was mildly innovative and provided a few scares and could actually call itself a horror movie, this one wants to be a carbon copy of the first one but fails miserably. It's a perfect example of greedy producers wanting to earn more money on account of the first movie, without actually caring what the sequel is all about or how many people who see it will feel like they've been fooled. If after all you want to see the movie, fast forward until the last 20 minutes and watch, unless you want to feel like an idiot because you just spent an hour and a half watching still images of empty rooms. Sequels... there's just something so terribly wrong about them these days, they used to actually make them for a reason.
A Nightmare on Elm Street (2010)
Why, oh why did they make this movie?
What is the freaking point of making this movie? I honestly don't understand. The only reason I gave it two stars out of 10 is because it reminded me that I have the whole Nightmare On Elm Street collection on DVD and that I should watch it again. I really wanted this to be a good movie for the sake of the original, so that new generations can see what it's all about, but no one should see this version, I really mean no one. What did they do? They took a few of the scariest scenes from the original and almost three decades and numerous generations of special effects later managed to make them look worse than they looked in 1984. Oh, and they added a few "F" words throughout the movie, I guess to make it tougher than the original. If anyone out there who is a real horror fan and wants to know what Nightmare On Elm Street saga is all about, skip this and get the 1984 version, as well as all the sequels. Even though they're not all of the same quality, every single one, even the worst one, beats this one by a mile.
