the third ad break came on and afterwards they repeated the previous 10 minutes we already saw!
Knew it would be, just like Anchorman and The Hangover. All shit.
Cheer up sad sack
these films all get advertised wrong as great comedies and they're not. They have depth to them and great relationships between characters. The friendship between Jonah Hill and Michael Cera in Superbad is so sweet, especially when they go to bed drunk near the end and talk about their friendship, very touching.
Anchorman is properly shit though, agreed.
all the clicking of "abandon!" "abandon!" does no good once "reply" has been clicked.
that is all.
its mindless comedy and it does mindless comedy very well
it just failed to amuse me, I hate random "humour", see: "I love lamp", for fucks sake!
that's RANDOM humour
it does what it does very well, its great for groups of people to watch and just casually watch & is a film that has belly laughs in it... it's a comedy, if it makes me belly laugh then it's done it's job.
it's not as simple as Anchorman, yes it is relatively simple but they still do and say things which take imagination, Anchorman does not. It lacks my kind of humour.
but your post is just awful and wrong on every level. It makes me want to agree with untrue more.
all the bits with mclovin and/or the police are objectively hilarious
It's no American Pie
other than that, OMG michael cera <3 4 eva
other than that, yeah, kinda blows.
Like at the beginning, I thought "Fucking hell, this is hilarious!", but then it just continued along at the same pace and I got kind of sick of it. Emma Stone is really pretty though. Even with her stupid fringe.
but it turns out there isn't a Channel 5+1, even though all their rubbish sub-channels have +1s? So I watched Jurassic Park III on SyFy+1, which apparently is a real channel.
Jurassic Park's sequels don't get enough hatred. They make Robocop 3 look like Godfather 2.
where they establish with about forty two seconds of exposition that, contrary to all the other films, Raptors have extremely sophisticated communications skills, which they then handily show off in just about every scene they're in.
It's hella stupid but it's pretty fun at the same time. William H Macy being chased by dinosaurs!
well done me, that's why it's called Jurassic Park III. Duh.
You're thinking of the second one, anyway, which is the one that ends with the T Rex going on a rampage across downtown San Diego.
If only because I can't imagine it can be worse than JPII. That said, JPII is still a Spielberg film so it's a lot better than most other sequels.
it has Vince Vaughn before he became irritating and Toby Ziegler and Goldblum being a smuggo again and a T Rex going on a rampage in downtown San Diego.
It's probably also better than the book, which in many ways was just the inverse of the first book.
Well he definitely had to bring Malcolm back but Hammond dies in the book and is alive in that film too.
The San Diego bit is the part I really don't like: the film's feeling too long by that point anyway and it just feels like no one remembered to make an ending for it. The set pieces are good, though, like the bit with the bus on the cliff.
He claims he was only "slightly dead" or something and that news reports have over-stated it. He never really dies 'on camera' though, it's just mentioned in passing.
Hammond dies in the book (eaten by compies) but not in the first film and he doesn't come back.
The book just seemed really aimless, there was an underlying point somewhere about evolution and prions but it felt to me a lot like Crichton wrote it because he new they'd make a sequel and that way he could get something out of it in the process.
He dies. Okay, I guess it's like the last line of the book so it's almost like he didn't write, "and then suddenly he came to again," but still! :D
Yeah Hammond getting eaten, that's right. I just wondered because his scene in the 2nd film is pretty important so I wasn't sure how Malcolm would be put back on the Island otherwise. I guess his character is totally different in the first book so it wouldn't have happened that way.
the second book is actually quite different. InGen goes bankrupt after being sued about the yahoo by everyone involved and the Costa Rican government and Site B is abandoned and forgotten about.
I'm struggling to remember the specifics of the book as it's been probably a decade since I read it, but I think the reasoning for him going there is pretty similar, but I think in the book's case it's a colleague that discovers the island and goes there rather than his girlfriend. There's none of the stuff with the hunters there capturing dinosaurs (so none of the T Rex stuff happens either), although the guy Nedry was working for in the first book (Dodgson?) reappears there at the same time and tries to steal eggs to sell off-island. They also discover that the dinosaurs are all infected with a CJB-variant and doomed as a result.
the inflight entertainment was full of films I hadn't seen and wanted to see.
Instead I just watched all three JP movies. DINOSAURS :)
but not nearly to the extent and style they are in JPIII
I could have come up with those dirty references in my sleep.
OH MY GOD YOU PERIODED ON MY JEANS FUCK!!!1!11
...Yeah thanks that'll be a blockbuster and several million dollars please? Cheers.
Superbad isn't a work of genius, OR a pile of festering turds. It's merely okay. It has some good laughs. But it's mostly a bit weak. Like 99% of everything, it's fairly mediocre. Okay. Alright.
But I guess if we just admitted that we wouldn't really have anything to talk about anymore. SUPERBAD IS A TOTAL PILE OF SHIT MCLOVIN MY ARSE.
It has a few gross out jokes, but most of it is dialogue driven and the gags come think and fast =- I notice something new everytime I watch it.
"When you look into his eyes, it's like the first tine you heard the Beatles" is one of my favourite lines of any film ever
funny, warm and quite sweet under all the knob jokes and swearing. When Cera is mistaken for some guys brother and has to sing to the potheads = lovely stuff.
I prefer my comedy a films a bit more joke-based though.
with dodgy dancing :)
the police officers: less so
