August 24, 2012

The Best Film of the Summer

Moonrise Kingdom – It is funny, warm and features Bill Murray throwing a shoe at Edward Norton.

Best Performance in a bad movie that made you like the bad movie until you thought about it later  and realized the badness award

Josh BrolinMIB 3 – The guy is so good you forget the plot is terrible and that production had to be shut down for three months to make this film.

Best Vita Coco product placement/Close to jumping the shark award

The Dictator – Cohen needs to ditch the script and embrace spontaneity.

Best Character of the Summer

Loki – He catches arrows, leads an army and still manages to lose in spectacular fashion.

Dumber than dirt Award (I still like the director though)

God Bless America – Turn off the TV/Radio and read a book. Maybe that will stop you from going on a rampage.

Why did the guy who created the maps get lost award

Prometheus – This movie was suppossed to be smart. But, then the guy who created the greatest maps ever can’t find his way out of a catacomb.

Cast I’d like to spend more time with

Safety not Guaranteed – Everybody is just so nice. Fantastic little indie.

Safety Not Guaranteed Jake Johnson

Ouch, huh? and Oof award

Rock of Ages, Thats My Boy, Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, What to Expect When You’re Expecting, Friends With Kids

Funniest Movie of the summer and greatest cameo award

Ted – This film provides genuine big laughs that come from wonderful dialogue and moments. Also, seeing Flash Gordon takes shots with a CGI teddy bear is pretty aweswome.

Matthew McConaughey will finally get an Oscar Nomination and prove I was right about Lincoln Lawyer being a springboard/Finding a way to put John Leguizamo in this post award

Magic Mike, The Paper Boy, Killer Joe and Bernie…..Almost makes up for Fools Gold.
