4/10: Get Hard
Friday, June 12, 2015

Another throwaway comedy from Ferrell? yeah pretty much. Despite the fact this guy is mega famous and has made some solid movies, his filmography is top heavy with throwaway garbage, literately littered with trashy flicks. I find it weird that three of his worst movies happen to be about various sporting events, ice skating, tennis and NASCAR racing.So lets be honest here this movie is simply one big stereotype, one big cliché, every angle is nailed well and truly...almost to an offensive level. Put simply, Ferrell plays a rich successful businessman who works for a large company. He has it all including a mansion, flashy automobile, slick suits and a hot fiancée, he is on top of the world. Then as quickly as his lavish lifestyle is presented to us, its all torn down as he is accused of corruption. He now has 30 days until he goes to jail for the next ten years. In desperation he...

10/10: Absolutely Great
Monday, March 30, 2015

James King (Will Ferrell) is an extremely wealthy hedge fund manager, engaged to his fiancée Alissa (Alison Brie). His car washer, Darnell Lewis (Kevin Hart) is married to his wife, Rita and is trying to put their daughter Makayla in a better school away from the bad neighbourhood they live in. James meets Darnell when the latter accidentally frightens James in the parking lot because he assumed Darnell was going to rob him, when he just wanted to give him his keys. James makes a speech about how he got to his success, and to inspire Darnell to go for his. He pulls out a big wad of cash, only to pull out two singles as a "tip" for Darnell.Alissa hosts an engagement party for herself and James. She gives him an electric guitar as a gift, and she invites John Mayer up on stage to perform. James performs alongside Mayer momentarily until the cops storm in and arrest...

1/10: Just Awful
Wednesday, May 6, 2015

Will Ferrell and Kevin Hart have teamed up together for their latest comedy project called 'Get Hard' with enough double entendres for two movies. There are a couple of similarities from 'Trading Places' and 'Nothing To Lose' here in 'Get Hard', but nothing really seems genuine or charming enough to remember this film much beyond two minutes after viewing it. Etan Cohen (not to be confused of the Coen Bros.) steps into the director's seat for the first time, but has written screenplays such as 'Men In Black III', 'Tropic Thunder', and 'Idiocracy'. Clearly, he has some writing talent, but with 'Get Hard', it seems like he just let Ferrell and Hart do their own thing, which can be outrageously funny at times, but can also run off on long tangents, which often happens with this movie.This movie survives and fails by its overdone racial, gender, and sexual humor, all of which has been done many times before...

3/10: Get Hard?........Get Lost
Thursday, April 16, 2015

When millionaire hedge fund manager James is found guilty of fraud and bound for a stretch in San Quentin, the judge gives him 30 days to get his affairs in order. Desperate, he turns to Darnell to prep him for a life behind bars. But despite James' one- percentage assumptions, Darnell is a hard-working small business owner who has never received a parking ticket, let alone been to prison. Together, the two men do whatever it takes for James to be prepared and, in the process, discover how wrong they were about a lot of things........including each other. Kevin Hart is quickly becoming this generations Pauly Shore, good on TV, but his films are getting poorer and poorer, and it's becoming clear now that he hasn't the star power that the studios would like you to think.But it's not his fault, he has screen presence, it's just that the material he is given...

1/10: A whole movie about how funny it is that men get raped in US prisons
Sunday, March 6, 2016

So the whole plot of the movie is, that it is perfectly normal to get raped in a US prison. And as we learn at the end of the movie: this is also perfectly fine if it happens to the bad guys. It's so fine we can all have a good laugh about it.In a time of the false Rolling Stone mass rape story, in a time where rape culture is seen everywhere except when it happen to men, in a time where we have countless "survivors of rape" in a "rape culture", in a time where "Hunting Ground" was made....in this time it is perfectly fine to make a comedy that circles around only one thing: that it is normal and really funny to get raped as a man in a US prison.Definite, there is a rape culture in many countries. It is about how normal it is that males get raped in prison and...
