Night at the Roxbury - Unique character that was unique even on SNL
Zoolander - Unique
Old School - Same
Elf - Unique
Anchorman - Same
Kicking and Screaming - Same
Bewitched - Unique
Talladega Nights - Same
Stranger Than Fiction - Unique
Blades of Glory - Same
Semi Pro - Same
Step Brothers - Same
Land of the Lost - Unique
The Other Guys - Unique
Everything Must Go - Unique
Casa Di Mi Padre - Unique
The Campaign - Same

He's 50-50. Half the time he plays the same character and half the time he doesn't. I'd say that's better than Zach Galifianakis and Seth Rogan. The bottom line though is...they're ****ing funny. If you don't find them funny so be it. I just hate the whole "he always plays the same guy" thing. Not everybody can be Gary ****ing Oldman.

I kind of feel this way about Chris Farley though he's far funnier than Ferrell. Ferrell's only funny role was the creepy guy in Wedding Crashers who wants his meatloaf

Now John Candy, he was a typecast guy who could truly act

I don't hate him for only playing the same guy. I love plenty of actors who do that, comedian or not. I just hate the character that Will Farrell plays.

Gotcha. I also made that list just to see for myself what his ratio was. You should watch Stranger Than Fiction and Everything Must Go. They're different.

Holy Motors

Holy Sh*t.


Please tell me one of you have seen this movie so that I can talk more in depth about what I just saw. Seriously. Holy ****.

F*ck Daniel Day Lewis. Denis Lavant should have been given an Oscar for what he did in this film. He was incredible. He was both emotional and physical in what is truly one of the strangest roles in the strangest movie I have ever seen. Yet! This movie was brilliant. It's the best yet most confusing and thought provoking film that came out last year. I don't even know how to describe it. It's basically a film about performers and the audience but the line between them is so think that you have no idea what is real, what is an act, or who the hell is even watching it.

It revolves around a performer who is brilliantly played by Lavant who is driven around in a limousine being carted to each performance. Every time he exits the vehicle the show is on. That's all I can really say because the film is such a mind f*ck that it's better to enjoy it knowing as little as possible.

Please. Somebody watch this so I can talk about it. Please.

Lynch/10

Argo

Did it deserve Best Picture? I can honestly go either way. I'll be watching the rest of the nominees excluded Les Mizz and decide for myself but for right now I'd say that it deserved a Best Picture is there were no clear cut winner among the bunch. I think that'll change after I see Amour. I enjoyed it though. The last half hour was tense albeit a bit cliche and generic in its use other getting you on the edge of your seat. John Goodman and Alan Arkin were ****ing awesome together. I'm going to look forward to everything Affleck puts out cause the dude can direct a film. Solid movie.

8/10

Same could be said for Adam Sandler, but I find that kind of comedy is better when you don't want to do a lot of thinking. That's why I like Sandler and Ferrell. It's more or less comfort comedy than anything, for me.

Well that and Will Ferrells five minute skit of two hours for a movie is absolutely hysterical. Hes really only had a few bad movies come out, sure his sophomore humor isn't ever gonna win him an oscar but he brings the laughs at least for me. I watched The Other Guys last night and it was awesome.

A good day to die hard by John Moore. I like Bruce Willis movies.
