Forgetting Sarah Marshall: Review

Whoooo! Forgetting Sarah Marshall people! Me likey this movie!
The movie is about Peter Bretter who's is a musician that does the background music for a popular CSI TV series and also happens to date the star of the show, Sarah Marshall. But when she breaks up with Peter , he is completely devastated. After a while he decides that he needs to get over her and goes on a vacation to Hawaii and checks into this nice resort only to find out Sarah Marshall is also there and she already has a new boyfriend in the form of a British rock star.
The guy who plays the main character in this is Jason Segal who some of you might know from How I Met You're Mother. This guy really knows how to do comedy and do it well. Matter of fact, Jason Segal actually wrote the screenplay for Sarah Marshal. No shit! He could be a great SNL writer cause Forgetting Sarah Marshall is funny as hell.
This movie is one of the funniest romantic comedies I've seen since The 40 Year Old Virgin. It's got a great cast of actors who are really hilarious together especially Russel Brand,Paul Rudd and Jonah Hill. The humor in this is great, I loved the CSI bits in the movie and that ending Dracula musical scene. And Sarah Marshall also had some really interesting characters that are realy likable. Also the waves of SNL cameos were a great boost to the film.
But there were times I thought the comedy went a bit too far to the point where they were Apatow crude. We have two scenes where Jason Segal is naked and we can see that little tic tac of a dick he has. This is what I hate about comedies where the filmmakers think that putting in crude humor is going to make the film funny. But besides that there's nothing much to complain about.
My favorite character i the whole movie was Aldous Snow who is someone you try really hard to hate cause he's a douche and he's sleeping with the protagonists girlfriend. But you cant help but like this guy cause he is just one of the coolest dudes you'll ever come across. He's that kind of guy you'd want to just hang out with and have a beer, cause he is a genuinely nice person and is stitchingly hilarious to listen to. but whats p with Russel Brands hair? Jesus whens the last time this guy went to the barber?
Damn Kristen Bell is just hella hella hot in this movie. I'd think any guy would find it hard forgetting her sweet ass. And it also helps that Kristen Bells is in a bikini or a mini dress for the most parts f the film. And its kind of sad that I'm only talking about her hotness cause she does do a pretty decent acting job in this.
And we have Mila Kunis here who's looking really pretty in this.I kept thinking her voice sounded so familiar, and then I go on imdb and find out she's the voice of Meg Griffin from Family Guy. Wow.. how can a girl as hot as Mila Kunis do the voice of such a nerdy girl? Anyway.. I liked her in the movie man. She's dyingly cute and I really like the her skin tone .... and also her boobs and legs.
It's a Judd Apatow movie people, so just brace yourselves for lots of crude jokes, random humor, and some really funny moments.

RATING: 6/10

The Strangers: Review

Now... Everyone knows, I hate horror. I can never watch horror films particularly ghost movies where there is that creepy factor. I watch all sorts of movies but I never ever watch horror. The last one I saw was The Ring and even that shit freaked me out. The person who invented the horror genre is one sick man. SICK! The only person sicker is the one who made me watch this film. Joanne Lie!!
The Strangers is a movie based on true events that took place in 2005 on a couple named Kristen McKay and James Hoyt. They're a couple who is going through some rough times in their relationship and were just hanging out in their summer home when 3 strange people in masks begin to terrorize them.
The story is predictable and repetitive. Psychos terrorize boy and girl, boy and girl run, boy and girl fights back, psycho catches boy and girl, psycho kills boy and girl, end of movie. This film had no plot, objective or reason. They never justified why the strangers were terrorizing the two leads. We never even get to see their faces for that matter. So throughout the 90 minutes, you just see the two leads running around screaming.
Liv Tyler and Scott Speedman try to do the best they can with the little material they have but overall the acting was flat. And the stability of the camera shooting the movie was worse than Cloverfield. Seriously, the scenes were so shaky. See even the cameraman was scared.
However, I can't say this movie was boring. To tell you the truth I was I was scared shitless. Maybe to those who watch horror regularly, this may be nothing, but for me, OMG I could have had a heart attack watching it.
 Now this isn't a ghost film. There aren't any flying sprites or moving furniture but the masks that these strangers have were just the freakiest things I've ever seen. I'm okay when I watch gory films like Saw where i know the character who's doing these bad things but what I can't stand is when I don't know anything about the antagonist let alone, can't see their face. It just sends chills down me every time I look at their masks.
 The main draw of the movie were the 3 strangers no doubt. The masks that these guys wore were freaky scary and it's gonna haunt me for many years to come. It's very disturbing when we find out the reason why they were terrorizing the couple. I was going, "WTF" and at the same time going, "Holy shit, these people are psycho!"
My favorite stranger was Dollface, who was the only stranger to speak in the movie. Was kinda surprised when I found out on imdb that Dollface was played by Gemma Ward. Holy shit! I didn't even know she acts. She's that Australian supermodel who dated Heath Ledger...... No wonder he died.
Please don't make me watch another horror movie again. please, please, please, please.

RATING: 5/10

Make It Happen: Review

So... this is one of those movies that's really horrible but i love the hell out of so please bare with me. I'll probably change my rating about this after a week or so once the hormones die a little.
OMG this movie is the sex! Hahaha man I made those whistling noises in the cinema throughout the goddamn show I thought the security was gonna throw me out!
So this movie is about Lauryn who dreams to be a successful dancer and takes up a job at a burlesque club to start out her career. The dance soon consumes her and she becomes well known as she discovers it to be the source of both conflict and self-enlightenment.
Make It Happen is practically the same as any other dance film we've seen. Girl has a dream of being a great dancer, girl has some drama in her past which holds her back, other bitches are mean to girl and dance better than her, girl works hard and becomes better than bitches, girl becomes goddess of sex, girl has some conflict, girl resolves conflict by dancing, end of movie.
What makes this movie tolerable is the dance scenes which are hella hella sexy. And I don't mean X-Rated like Showgirls but titillating enough to make you go "DAMN!" The film is kind of like Coyote Ugly only this time they show more skin, have longer, sexier dances and the main character is fruckin hot!
Mary Elizabeth Winstead. I love this girl. Kinda sad that she's stuck doing B-rated movies like Sky High and Final Destination 3. This girl could be a supermodel or something. I her acting great? No. Is her dancing great? No. Is her body-- HELL YEAH! She is one damn sexy chick.
The only person who upstages Winstead is Julissa Bermudez who is the bitch of the movie. And damn is she bitchy. But let's not look at her acting, just focus on those legs.. Thank you God! Her cabaret scenes were awesome as well, especially when she rips her red dress and goes all Elizabeth Berkley on the stage.
But other than the girls and the dancing, there's nothing much to look forward to in here. The storyline is so predictable it's almost funny how much they try to make it their own. The dialog is bad and so is the acting.
But I'm not considering any of that because I got what I wanted out of it. I got tits, I got ass, I got Mary Elizabeth Winstead.. now I need to go jerk.

RATING: 3/10 (Used to be 6 but I came to my damn sense)
