Chasing Amy is a close second. I thought out of the New Jersey trilogy that Mallrats was the weakest.
My only problem with Clerks is that the actors were so amateur/unpracticed at the time, and it's so dialogue heavy, that it almost felt like I may as well have just been reading the script to myself. I've grown to like the film though.

Chasing Amy just really annoyed me. I didn't like the characters and I thought Amy wasn't worth chasing at all.

That's the charm of the film to me. It gives it a sense of it being similar to just recording your friends having a conversation.

I watched In Bruges yesterday and loved it. There's some hysterical dark humour in it, and I really like the unique characters in it. It's got a heavy Coen brothers influence and that definitely is not a bad thing. I would highly suggest watching this one.

Yeah, I agree. It took me several times watching it over the years to warm up to it though. I originally thought all of the actors were pretty bad at delivering their lines. Just sounded phony.

Agreed. I saw that in the theater just b/c it looked semi-interesting and it turned out to be a really good film. Excellent performances

Frozen
I'm not sure why this movie is getting all the buzz it's getting. Not saying it's bad but it's just a sort of regular Disney movie. It had a few nice touches that might have made me rate it more highly but they were undercut by the presence of the frequent, terrible showtunes that took me right out of the movie.

The only one I thought was dreadful was the woman who did the detective work after the dead dude in the bathroom scene. She made trying to seem natural seem bad.

She's so bad it's kind of hilarious though.

Yeah, even though you addressed it near the end. It isn't really a typical regular Disney movie. It was more of a musical. If you aren't into musicals/plays then you won't like it. Also, I think the hype is warranted. The main song that everyone loves from it is a great song for little girls or anyone really to attach themselves too and be obsessed with. It has a great empowerment message behind it.


I finally got around to seeing Hangover 3 last night and it felt like having relatives come to visit and overstay their welcome. I'm so glad that is the last movie. They probably shouldn't have even made it to be honest. I was just so tired of all of those characters and the funny wasn't really there. I only chuckled a few times at certain lines but things that I'm pretty sure they thought was super funny left me with a deadpan face. I'm so glad I didn't pay money to see it in the theaters.

Typical Disney movies are musicals though, and I like a lot of them. I just found the music so bad it was distracting in this one.

I felt like the music in this one was far more than normal though. I don't feel like it was the typical Disney fare.
