This show has been getting a lot of hate since it debuted, but I'd just
like to share my love for this show mainly just to get a positive voice
out there. I'm not saying the people who disliked it are wrong, but I
think this show has the potential to have a cult following, and cult
followings don't just happen when its fans are quiet.
Anyway, I think this show is awesome! The creator's could've just made another Spider-man cartoon that was a lot like all the other cartoons, but they decided to take a risk and gave this show a more comedic and cartoony feel. Every episode has a frantic pace and is full of all sorts of sight gags and breaking the fourth wall, making episodes funnier after multiple viewings.
While it doesn't have the character development and story arcs that the superior The Spectacular Spider-man had, you still have to admire it for doing it's own thing. It's full of creativity, has some great animation, voice acting and hilarious sense of humour so you can forgive it for not having some of the things The Spectacular Spider-man had.
If you enjoyed the unique style of Edgar Wright's masterpiece Scott Pilgrim Vs The World, you'll probably like Ultimate Spider-man since this show was obviously very influenced by that movie. Okay, Ultimate Spider-man completely ripped off Scott Pilgrim's style, but it's a cool style, so who's complaining? In conclusion, Ultimate Spider-man's zany sense of humour will surely make it a memorable addition to Spider-man's animated history.
Father's boy wasn't really a good movie. However, I can't really say
that I hated. It was just an average sitcom-type movie, but sitcoms are
still mostly enjoyable, even when average.
Things I liked about this movie: -It was short and sweet. It moved along at a good pace, and it was less than an hour long so it never dragged.
-Acting was mostly good.
-Characters were mostly fully realized, even if they were stock. I'd rather have a cliché character than a completely bland one.
-Had a good musical score. It wasn't a masterpiece, but it helped with the happy atmosphere of the movie.
-The comedy wasn't terrible. No belly laughs, but I've seen way worse.
Things I disliked about this movie: -Like I said before, there was no belly laughs in the movie. None of the gags were very memorable or imaginative, they were just there. Nothing above sitcom standards.
-And like I keep saying, this was just a sitcom. There was nothing cinematic about, nothing that justified putting it on the big screen. The plot could've been used on a thirty minute sitcom on the radio back then. In fact, being less than one hour, this just barely qualified as a feature film. It's like the writer just wanted to write a screenplay to pay rent rather than putting effort into making a classic movie.
I wouldn't really recommend it to anybody, unless if it happens to be on TCM and nothing else is on. Again, it's only a little under an hour, so you won't be wasting THAT much time.
This was one of the funniest movies I've seen in a while. Never before
have I seen a movie so tasteless, vulgar and hilarious at once.
Things I liked: -Witty, yet vulgar humour. It had every kind of thing that might offend or disgust people (sex, violence, bodily functions, swearing, sexism) and yet it managed to be completely hilarious. All the jokes worked, and they came at you non-stop.
-Great animation. It was very fluid, and the character designs were all beautifully ugly.
-It was creative. This movie contained some of the most messed up imagery and gags ever brought on screen. Only the greatest imaginations can constantly make you think to yourself "what the f*** am I watching" so many times in one movie.
-You just have to admire the courage the writers had to put some of this stuff in a movie. Like I said before, this is a completely offencive movie. But they still manage to make this entertaining and hilarious.
Things I disliked -It's not really something I personally disliked, but I'd just like to warn people to not watch this if you're easily offended.
But for those who aren't easily offended, and want to watch a funny, creative and entertaining movie, this is for you.
I'd first like to point out that if it wasn't for the newest My Little
Pony show, I wouldn't have any interest in My Little Pony at all. But,
since I was bored, I decided to watch the original theatrical movie on
Youtube, and, while it wasn't a great movie, it wasn't that bad either.
Things I liked: -The animation was pretty good, especially compared to the later series My Little Pony N Friends. There were some rather obvious animation errors, but overall everything moved smoothly, and there was quite a bit of movement.
-I also really liked the backgrounds. They were very detailed, and some parts just looked gorgeous.
-I thought the musical score was very whimsical.
-The story was easy to follow, and it moved along at a decent pace.
-There were a few suspenseful moments. Adults should find these mildly amusing, children will probably find them exciting.
Things I disliked: -The characters had no interesting personalities. A lot of them just seemed to be filler, the rest only had one personality trait to go on.
-The villain was weak. She had no motivation, and she just wasn't threatening enough.
-The songs were really bad. They were mostly forgettable, and they were all sung my horrible singers. I'd understand if one of them was sung badly for comedic effect, they were ALL sung badly. It's like they couldn't afford any professional singers.
-The humor was really mostly weak. I laughed at a few lines, but the slapstick was mostly lame.
I'd recommend this to parents who were fans of eighties My Little Pony if they want to introduce the franchise to their kids. But if you want an animated masterpiece you and your children will both love, I'd suggest something from Disney.
I found Salt and Pepper to be a hysterically funny, well paced,
beautifully sixties spy spoof. I'm gonna start doing reviews in a
different style than I usually do, where I'm just gonna list the things
I like and things I disliked. I know I'm not the only one on here that
Things I liked:
-The two leads were hilarious and had great chemistry and interesting characters.
-Very cool jazz score.
-Very witty dialogue and some great lines. There was also some great slapstick gags mixed in there.
-Amusing action sequences. They may have not been the most exciting action scenes in the history of cinema, but they were certainly entertaining and well staged.
-The police inspector character was pretty hilarious.
-The sets and costumes were very awesomely sixties.
Things I disliked:
-Some people may find this movie to be sexist, since the two leads sometimes treat women as sex objects. There was also a couple of mildly racist jokes thrown in. But, the fact that the movie stars an interracial friendship should make up for all that.
Overall, I'd recommend this movie to anybody that enjoys action-comedies, especially ones that came from the sixties.
The Spanish Sword is one of those b-movies where most plot descriptions
would make it sound like an exciting action-adventure, but ends up
being a very dull stinker. Probably the main reason it's so bad is
because it's concept called for a way bigger budget than it probably
had. If any independent filmmakers are reading this, I just have one
piece of advice they're probably not telling you in film schools:
movies that don't take place in modern times in the modern world need a
big budget. Otherwise you'll just end up with this poor excuse for a
The thing that I most disliked about this movie was the incredibly wooden acting. Although to be fair, the actors didn't have a very good script to work with. The dialogue was very corny and the characters were so personality-less that they could barely be called humans. At least you could tell the actors were at least trying at times, but sadly couldn't bring in decent enough performances. But the bad acting and dialogue could be forgiven if there wasn't so much of it. Seriously, the movie had way too much boring dialogue scenes. I can't even tell you what this movie is about because the acting and dialogue was so distractingly bad I had a hard time following the actual story.
That's not to say their wasn't any action scenes. In fact, those were my favourite parts of the movie due to how hilariously bad they were. The swords were very fake-looking, and way too often characters died from having the swords being waved near them. I realize CGI wasn't invented yet, but it was so painfully obvious that the swords weren't even touching them. But I think the best one was the climatic fight scene which you can barely see because it kept cutting to an extreme long shot of two professional fencers fighting each other.
But not everything in the movie was bad. The cinematographer obviously had some experience. I've seen one too many b-movies where the camera did nothing but shoot the actors saying the lines. But the camera in this movie actually moved! The movie also had a pretty decent score. It wasn't a great score, but in movies like these you really need to appreciate what little competence the filmmakers showed.
I'd only recommend this movie if you're like me and find bad movies interesting. Otherwise, stay away from this stinker.
I just finished watching this movie, it was the first Jerry Lewis film
I've seen, and I'm already a fan of this comic genius. Three On A Couch
is full of gags from start to finish, constantly keeping the audience
laughing with Jerry Lewis' character's attempts to make three women
think he's three separate people. Jerry Lewis shows his talent as a
comedic actor as he plays all those characters perfectly, but also
awkwardly as though he's nervous that he might get found out. And yet
the awkwardness is so subtle that it's believable that the ladies don't
think something's up. He's also very deadpan in this movie, and at the
same time high energy in his gags, much like Charlie Chaplin. So, bravo
Jerry Lewis, you put on one heck of a performance.
Although I will admit that some of the jokes didn't work. Some of them went on just a tad too long. Although they don't hurt the movie much. Also one thing I thought the movie should've done was make the three women more developed characters instead of just one-dimensional straight-men. Only one of them showed a personality (the athletic one), the others just seemed to have personalities described but not shown.
Judging by the low score and the fact that it was featured in a book called Fifty Worst Movies (or something like that), I'm guessing this is one of Jerry Lewis' lesser movies. I haven't seen any of his other films so I can't say if Jerry Lewis fans will enjoy this, but I'd definitely recommend it to people who want to watch a really funny movie.
Blake Edwards brings his unique style of humour into this epic,
hilarious slapstick comedy. Although it does have some brief dull
spots, not unlike It's A Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (Which it was
obviously influenced by), the moments of comedy were brilliant. The
film used lots of elaborate, expensive sight gags to phenomenal effect,
with cartoony sound effects from sound effect pro Treg Brown, best
known for his work on Looney Tunes cartoons. But the real scene stealer
here is Jack Lemmon as the hilariously over-the-top Professor Fate.
Professor Fate was just so silly and cartoonishly evil that one can't
help but love him. Jack Lemmon said each of his lines with no indoor
voice and tons of ham, and is probably among his greatest performances.
Also memorable in this movie is Natalie Wood as a quirky, over-the-top
feminist who never seems to stay in one outfit for more than a scene.
Aside from the brilliant comedy, this is such a completely gorgeous production. It's beautiful period sets and costumes lets one become completely engrossed in the film's universe. I also really enjoyed the vibrant colours and beautiful cinematography.
But like I said before, their are some dull spots. Some might see this as a good thing, as it lets the viewer breathe after some really wacky humour, others might see this as padding to make the film longer. I personally didn't mind, since their was enough eye candy on screen to keep me amused.
I would recommend this movie to fans of Blake Edward, and anybody who enjoys slapstick comedy.
This cartoon started off rather slow. Like most cartoons from the era,
it had some surreal images, but not a lot of jokes. And then about
halfway through the cartoon, the real gags started coming in fast, one
right after the other. After a slow build-up, we get to see Porky and
some other less famous character help a woman move out all her
furniture. We get lots of really creative slapstick gags that you'll
only find in a cartoon. The music score was also especially epic, a lot
more than in other Looney Tunes cartoons. It made the movers' task seem
more dramatic, which of course makes the jokes more funny.
If you enjoy thirties cartoons, then you'll surely get a kick out of this.
This is the first time reviewing a movie featured on MST3K, but I do
not let Mike and the bots influence my opinion on the movie. I have
seen some pretty good movies on that show, and the hilarious riffing
just enhanced it. This movie, however, was really bad, like most movies
featured on the show.
I think the worst thing about this movie is the pacing. Basically a guy finds some statue thingy, which he uses some kind of weird science to determine it's from the future, and then nothing really happens for half the movie. There's nothing wrong with a slow- building thriller, but there's no tension in the first half. Sure we get some pointless subplot about a love triangle or something, but this is a movie obviously marketed as a sci fi thriller. How about some thrills? Those of you patient enough to get to the titular "Terror" will at least be treated with some cool make up effects, which is basically the only reason I gave it a three instead of a one. But other than that, the second half doesn't have much thrills either.
But enough of the pacing, let's talk about some of the filmmaking. Like I said before, there's some good make-up near the end. But the person wearing the make up was in a really stupid costume, but I can't really explain much more without ruining the film. There was some on location shooting that appears to be shot at night, without much lighting, so it was too dark to see what was happening at times. There was also lots of padding, with pointless shots of driving and walking, and a couple over long scenes with a scientist and a time machine being, uh, scientist-y. As for the acting, it was wooden, but the average amount of wood you'd find in a b-movie.
I would recommend the MST3K episode, but this movie is probably unwatchable without it.
