Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

Trying Too Hard

'Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates' has a decent comedy premise; a premise that is squandered on a spastic plot and undermined character development. Much of the events are a hodgepodge of routine cliches combined with severely over-the-top performances. The main four players are stretching their natural abilities in the wrong direction. Feels as if the "comedy" in this script was absent and everyone involved on set was meant to fill in the gaps with much improvisation. It becomes an apparent fact after seeing the added blooper reel in the credits. Most of the performers are just trying way too hard. Many of the situations are needlessly elongated with extra unfunny lines. Rarely did I get a genuine good laugh. I enjoyed the more …

Paranormal Activity 4 Review comment

That's exactly what I figured after seeing the trailers - I'll probably catch this when I rent or stream it.

Yes, I am definitely starting to like Joseph Gordon-Levitt movies.

Good call on Paths of Glory - finally got to watch it over the weekend. Now I'll have to pick up The Killing next time I go on a Criterion spree.

Mel should his roles better. At least this should bring him back from his personal setback.

I myself have thought of what might happen should the cast of Jersey Shore find themselves covered in blood and shoved into a shark tank. I guess I understand the message of God Bless American, but for a movie that's about two people fighting back against mean, rude and bigoted people, the entire film is a little mean-spirited for its own good. It's different, but a bit darker than what I was expecting.

I've also found that Netflix streaming actually has a decent selection of Criterion movies. I know I'm a collector at heart, but I was able to see Carnival of Souls, Slacker, Cul-de-Sac and I have Black Narcissus in my que.

I actually just started getting Criterion Blu-Rays recently - I admit, most of mine are just the standard DVDs. However, the ones that are in Blu-Ray are: Tokyo Drifter, Charade, Last Year at Marienbad, House, 8 1/2 and Solaris. I usually stick with DVD due to price, but I found that if I need to expand my collection, the local Barnes and Noble is the only place that has an actual Criterion section.

How would you compare this to The Dark Knight?

Moonrise Kingdom Review comment

So far all the Wes Anderson fans have loved this movie. I would have to say this is my favorite out of all his films thus far and, as things stand, I think it's the best movie of 2012.
