Epic Movie (2007)
Makes a good teaching tool
If you're looking for a teaching aid to demonstrate how *not* to do almost any kind of humor in a movie, then this is perfect. This movie is virtually laugh-free.
I saw this movie when I was a young teen and I thought it was fairly entertainingbut now I realize the errors of my ways.
In fact, this movie is a piece of tripe. The gags are not just unfunny, they are incompetent. The writers/directors expect us to find it funny that they throw reference after reference in our faces, in place of original humor. It's acceptable to use references to other movies as humor, but they obviously don't understand that to do that you must you must well, let's just say only a certain, gifted few can write comedy well.
The best thing I can say about this movie is that it's well made.
Killer at Large (2008)
Some of the facts in this movie are inaccurate. According to the end, 112,000 Americans died because of obesity in 2006, but in the late 1990s the number was almost three times as high as that.
I'm not saying obesity isn't a major social issue, but I do think Steven Greenstreet shouldn't have ended with failure instead of success stories. Now, even when I so much as hear this film mentioned, I feel like I have to get far away. It contains a lot of good information but even writing this review is giving me PTSD. The one good thing about its tonality is that it inspired me to do something (which this film tries to discourage), and that is why I'm making my own documentary.
