Playing it Cool (2014)

download (1)

Playing it cool caught my eye cuz honestly I was bored and needed something to watch and it was there. Chris Evans is Captain America, Michelle Monaghan is cute, I tossed the movie on.

The movie is about A man who has never been in love and is tasked with writing a romantic comedy. While doing research to write it he actually falls for a woman, but because every movie needs some drama she of course is with someone. Honestly the movie is cliché as hell, almost to the point of being unbearable. From the grandfather that was in the Navy and met his grandmother right before shipping out all the way to tossing a rock at her window, and since it’s a comedy he even breaks the wrong window.

The movie is pretty funny at times, and the movie is entertaining enough, but the movie is just so cliché and awkward at times. The acting is top-notch, the story itself is just uninspired. However if you can simply accept that and watch the movie for what it is, it is pretty fun. The chemistry between Chris and Michelle is great and his friends are amazing. I would definitely watch it, but not if you are looking for something more than a distraction, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Special Correspondents (2016)

download (2)

This movie is going to be a like it or hate it situation, I doubt anyone loves it sadly. Ricky Gervais (Albert) and Eric Bana(Frank) play a news tech and a news reporter respectively in New York. Eric is a local celeb that is boss sort of hates and Ricky is a man doing his best that his wife, well his wife is a bitch he just doesn’t know it. Yet.

One day they are chosen to go do a report in Ecuador, the issue? Albert and his wife have a small falling out and in his despair he accidentally tosses the passports,and the tickets and the money. So basically he messes up a lot. This however will be the least of their problems as Frank decides to fake the entire trip.

This starts out pretty well, small phone call, some general info and computer and sound tricks from Albert. Then they invent a leader that other news agencies run with. This sounds like it can not get worse doesn’t it? Until they fake being captured. Yup, this movie takes all kinds of weird turns from bad to even worse. It actually gets even worse from there, but I won’t go any further. I actually really enjoyed the movie and do not understand the hate from many people. The script was nice and it was just different enough to be interesting. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Greg Davies:You Magnificent Beast (2018)

download

Greg Davies, You Magnificent Beast, but as he is quick to point out does not include himself. This older European man touches on everything from being a horrible teacher, but not a real teacher, a drama teacher as he points out, to how manscaping suddenly became a thing.

The show starts out a bit slow, at first I didn’t think I would like it and that is odd because I normally like that style of humor. It doesn’t take long however for him to catch his stride and by the end I was laughing quite a bit. Greg is a bit up and down tho it does seem quite by design more than being a hit and miss comedian. I can’t recommend his show for everyone, but for those that enjoy that over seas semi dry British/European style humor will enjoy it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

John Mulaney: Kid Gorgeous (2018)

John Mulaney, you silly, silly man. I learned a few things. For started I always thought he was gay. Turns out him and his wife are nothing alike. He tells you this during the pretty funny story of his wife saying its ok to make fun of her except to say she is a stupid bitch and he hates her. Everything else is fair game, and he does sort of find a loophole even for that. Wile not my favorite stand up of his, however this one is still pretty funny. He touches on topics from college to marriage, and is very much enjoyable. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Kevin James: Never Don’t Give Up

download

Kevin James is one of those comedians that is pretty much family friendly, and manages to make you laugh without resorting to swearing or offensive material. This stand-up is no exception. It is also quite possibly his best one yet. On topics ranging from getting his picture taken with strangers to his daughter repeating things he says at birthday parties at no point does he discuss things you wouldn’t want your kids hearing, but he doesn’t alienate adult viewers either. If you are looking for something the whole family can watch that will make everyone laugh, this could be it. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Ghost Team (2016)

ghost team

Ghost Team is an odd movie, it’s a comedy that isn’t funny but is not, not funny. The story is about a group of friends that decide to go on a ghost hunt, just like on their favorite television show. So they borrow ( well steal) some equipment, go to an abandoned place in the woods and start their hunt.

Things start getting weird pretty damn quick. There are voices, and images on cameras and electricity going on and off. Things are just horrible. It doesn’t take long for things however to get even worse.I won’t spoil that surprise for you tho.

The movie itself, isn’t bad. It does seem to try way to hard at times tho to be both edgy and immature at the same time and fails completely to do both. The movie simply isn’t good, which is quite upsetting for a movie with Jon Heder and Justin Long since both are amazing actors and are great in everything they do. Even in this they play their parts well, they simply weren’t given anything to work with. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

Hits (2014)

hits

Every so often I watch a movie that leaves me wondering what the hell did I just watch. This is one of those movies. The movie wasn’t bad, it was just weird as hell. Katelyn wants to be on The Voice and be a music star. She loves to sing and practices and even borrows money off her dad to get a guy to record a demo to send in, and does some less than lady like things in the process.

Speaking of her dad, he just wants the damn pot holes in the roads around town fixed. One of them is about to become a YouTube star, and it isn’t Katelyn. The movie has its ups and downs, with some fun moments and some serious moments. It also isn’t a great movie and is far from terrible. It simply exist. Dad has some less than memorable rants about the government where he sounds paranoid and Katelyn sounds like the usual stuck up brat. It is however entertaining at times. Realistically tho, there isn’t much incentive to watch this movie unless you are curious, there is simply better comedies out there. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
