A very well-shot, well-acted, engaging film that unfortunately had an ending. And I don't mean that in the cliche "I didn't want it to end!" way.
A feature length film written by DERRICK Comedy group, including Donald Glover from NBC's "Community". At times, it feels like you're watching an internet short, because you kind of are. But it's fun and consistently funny. Recommended.
Freaks & Geeks: Disc 6
I'd never seen all of these - now I have, so cross that off the list. It's pretty unbelievable that this was canceled after one season, but if you have a high school TV show where the characters aren't constantly fucking each other, you're asking to get canceled.
Hot Tub Time Machine
Very well done. If you're skeptical, don't be. Enjoy hearing Rob Corddry spout suck gems as, "Here's a question. Was it morally wrong for me to exploit my knowledge of the future for personal financial gain? Perhaps. Here's another question. Do I give a fuck?" Enjoy Crispin Glover, too.
Will Ferrell: You're Welcome, America...
Uhh, a little long. Maybe a lot long. Maybe it had a very short expiration date for its funniness, and I missed it. I dunno. This part was great, though:
Pickup on South Street
This is a 1953 noir - there are spies, Communists, stool pigeons, coppers, and microfilm. Plots involving stolen microfilm are always solid, even if they usually leave you wishing for microfiche instead.
Only Angels Have Wings
A sometimes cheesy, sometimes dramatic Howard Hawks movie - the kind where women fall in love with the protagonist (Cary Grant) for no good reason (other than the fact he looks like Cary Grant). "Screwball Drama" might describe it best. That genre never really caught on, for good reason. Still, there is enough intentional and unintentional humor here to recommend it.
World's Greatest Dad
I spent a sick afternoon watching this. It's got Robin Williams, but it's not terrible? It's about an English teacher whose asshole son accidentally kills himself. The asshole son is quite funny, right up until he dies:
I thought this was going to be a "funny for parents" movie, but was pleased to find it was funny for all. I really wish I paid full price for this instead of "Dinner for Schmucks".
Louis CK - Hilarious
You can (and should) watch this for free at EpixHD - whatever that is. It includes an extended rant on technology you may remember from this Conan interview that went viral:
Monty Python: Almost the Truth
Good if you want to learn how the group came together, how "Holy Grail" and "Life of Brian" were conceived and shot, or just remember how awesome Monty Python is. I hadn't thought about this sketch in years, and now I'm back in business - the laughter business!
