Lol one of those movies is not like the others.

Two, actually. Unless Yojimbo features sapient simians.

Doubt that the sun doth move,
Doubt truth to be a liar,
But never doubt I love.

MOON (2009) – Thumbs up!
No words Fantastic!

ALIEN - (1979) - Thumbs up!

The First Half is terrific and Fantastic! No Problems.

The Second Half is Basically looking around. SPOOKY ALIEN! Looking around… SPOOKY ALIEN! And that’s the rest of the film pretty much.

There is a bit of haunted house in space aspect to Alien. A whole lotta’ other movies have basically copied Alien since 1979. There was even a tv-movie knockoff set on an isolated oil rig a few years later.

Alien took some inspiration from Planet of The Vampires (1965), It! The Terror From Beyond Space (1958), and a pinch of John Carpenter’s Dark Star (1974) co-written by Alien scribe Dan O’Bannon.

Nacho Libre (2006) – 4/4

I recommend Gentlemen Broncos if you haven’t seen it yet. I consider it the capper of the great Hess trilogy:

  • Napoleon Dynamite
  • Nacho Libre
  • Gentlemen Broncos

I love Alien, but for all of its sophisticated production design and lavish budget, it’s essentially just a haunted house movie in space, albeit a really, really good one.

Maybe everything else is just a haunted space ship movie on Earth.

I watched 15 minutes of Tropic Thunder this morning and gave up.

What was the turn off?

The blue elephant in the room.

All of it?

I know it’s a parody but at some point I’m just watching jokes about fat suits and farts, hands blown off completely, etc. Maybe it gets better but I got tired of waiting. Switched to the start of Spotlight and it was a relief.

I saw it when it came out, don’t recall my impressions of it well. Don’t think I found it terribly clever either…

Those are things from movies within the movie. They’re supposed to be stupid and ridiculous.

Like I said, I know it’s a parody. I got it. I just didn’t find it funny to watch.

Best part of Tropic Thunder when I saw it in a theater was the group of people I overheard arguing over whether the trailers at the beginning were for real movies or not. 😛

Tropic Thunder is another great example of the theatrical cut being vastly superior to the extended cut.

The Disaster Artist (2017)

8/10

When I watched The Disaster Artist the theater messed up and started projecting the wrong movie. At first I thought that James Franco had made a really shitty fake movie just to extend the moral of “follow your dreams” but after a few minutes the theater realized that it was actually a real movie. I searched it up on IMDB while waiting for the theater to fix it and it had less than 10 reviews.

The movie looked like it was shot for 10 dollars, too.
