Why I appreciate and like this show.
I've been around the block a few times and one thing I have learned to appreciate is originality. In a television-land filled with mediocre humor copy cat shows (As an example, How many Family Guy rips off has there been through the years? American Dad, Cleveland Show, Bob's Burgers, etc. etc. etc.) Whether you like these copy cat shows or not, the fact is they are all the same style of humor. Whether you love the show or hate the show, you can't take away the fact that Tim & Eric Show is attempting to create something original and unusual, which is a very difficult thing to do. It is not the Genius of Chappelle Show, but it is the bizarre mood and weird tone of the show that makes it enjoyable, as opposed to the standard joke & punchline. My biggest suggestion, Don't Judge in the beginning and let the show grow on you and say to yourself when watching, is anyone else doing anything this gonzo, crazy or eccentric on TV? Tim & Eric is like the Doug Stanhope of TV shows. It's not for everyone.
We are realizing that Materialism does not bring happiness.
Spoiler Alert. In the United States we are led to believe by advertising that materialism and having a bigger house and shiny car will lead to Happiness. We are starting to figure out this quest for more "stuff" is misleading & does not bring happiness. Happy and I Am are both wonderful documentaries that offer a alternative message, that we are out of balance with nature (cancer is the only other thing on Earth besides us that takes more then is needed in Nature), and that more and more money does not lead to a happy life. The moronic review "Biggest load of crap" by Kiernan Holland motivated me to write this review and respond to his review. "It offers no scientific data" - There is a ton of studies being done on the subject and to say there is no scientific data is a blatant lie. forbes dot /sites/learnvest/2012/04/24/the-salary-that-will-make-you-happy- hint-its-less-than-75000/ learnvest dot com/2012/01/top-1-complains-they-cant-make-ends-meet-117/ These are two quick studies showing with empirical evidence supports the claims in Happy. If all Kiernan Holland got out of this documentary is that it did not delve into sex, some confusing and stupid tangent into drugs, and that it is bias towards Buddhism, take his review with a grain of salt.
Year One (2009)
First comedy I have ever seen that was completely silent for the duration.
This was the worst comedy I have ever seen. I read Ramiis made Black and Cera watch Mel Brooks History of the World for inspiration, and they were successful in that the jokes & humor felt completely dated and old. I am all for immature poo poo and pee pee humor when done in a clever and creative way such as Caddyshack's Baby Ruth, Something About Mary load in the hair, Dumb & Dumber kick his ass seas bass, Jackass shitting in a hardware store toilet, but Year One's disgusting humor was pointless and random. Black eating a turd for no particular reason and Cera peeing on himself when upside down in the dungeon was completely lame. What came to mind when I was watching this was a movie from 1981 called Caveman. I remember Caveman sucking when I was 6 and Year One was liking having to endure that same lame ass movie 30 years later. I was upset when I left the theater.
Donnie Darko (2001)
1 in 20 movies that start off great, have great, unique, and unpredictable endings
This was not one of them. I will give this movie a (generous) 9 because i did like it and found it, as an artist, very inspiring. Darko is a movie that sucked me in and i found myself on the edge of my seat while watching it. The intro of the dark bunnie in the golf course was twisted and awesome and the movie did a great job of retaining its dark, morbid and twisted feel.....until the end. Well, let me switch gears and say that i have found that one, it is hard to be creative or find a movie that is halfway creative and even harder to be original and unpredictable. Darko did a great job of being both original and unpredictable (in the beginning). Yet, soooo many movies suck you in for the first half, then have a totally disappointing and predictable ending. A masterpiece movie that comes to mind is Pulp Fiction, where as the movie is playing, you're thinking to yourself, what the heck is going to happen next? It's like being on a rollarcoaster. The difference, and the reason Darko is not a masterpiece, is because the ending crashed and burned, as do the vast majority of movies that start off great. The major turning point and downturn was the moment Frank the Bunny removed his mask. This most evil, twisted and mysterious character and ingredient in the movie, was a simple (goofy/dorky) human who was no longer scary or suspenseful. The ending also brought to mind 'Jacob's Ladder' where the main character (Tim Robbins) is critically hurt in Vietnam, he survives, returns to America and his life is played out until the very end, he is projected back into Vietnam at the pivotal point where he can either fight to live or let go and decides to let go.
