Saw this yesterday. Funny as hell. I used to say that Ferell really needed to stick to cameos because he always shines in those but after Step Brothers I've been doing a slow 180 on that. I'm digging him more and more in starting roles.

Funniest part of the film for me may be the part right before a debate when Galifianakis tries to talk smack and Ferrell just owns him. Really funny film. I think I may have laughed more than I did with TED to be honest.

 That part was damn funny.  "That's what nuts feel like."

Btw, what up homes?  Watchu been up 2?  I thought you stayed in CR living it up in the Montezuma or Manuel Antonio beaches.  Y you come back yo!?

LOL yeah maybe in 4 or 5 years. I don't got it like that to stay over there yet. Plus to be honest not sure I would, there's still a sense of insecurity when I think about living abroad and a tad sense of betrayal, yeah silly right.

Anyway got back mid-week. Just catching up with family (you maniacs included), news and movies too. Got another week off so I'll be spending a lot of time in the theater this week.

Nah man, perfectly normal feelings I would say.  But as far as insecurities, when mofos be getting shot for watching a movie here, I guess it really don't matter where you are at.

I've been hitting the theatres hard after the shooting man, that shi.t got to me.  Let me know what you end up seeing. Since then I've seen The Dark Knight Rises, The Watch, Magic Mike, Step Up Revolution, Total Recall, Hope Springs, The Campaign and Bourne Legacy.

Planning on going at it hard the rest of the year.  Let me know if you up for some friendly competition bout who sees more.  No prize or winner for this challenge, just the knowledge you know wtf you talking about when you talk bout X movie since you've seen  it and other cats haven't.

Cool, I usually catch at least 1 film a week under normal circumstances.

I plan on catching all the ones you mentioned not sure about Hope Springs. Already saw Magic Mike when it came out, cool flick, not as deep as I expected. Also want to see Killer Joe badly, I love the occasional dark comedy.

 Hope Springs I caught cause the old lady wanted to see it.  I find old people trying to get laid disturbing.  Ain't bad flick but probabably a wait for video.  Tommy lee jones was funny though.

Magic Mike was cool, surprised how much I liked it.  But the ending was balls.  Dude is broke but at least he got the girl?  That's bs.

I wanted MM to show more of the bad side of the profession. Not enough McConaughey being prick and aging loner still relying on his looks. Or the old stiff guy that couldn't even dance trying to hang on. Not even the young guy facing some real repercussions for his turn to the wild side.
Still a good flick though all in all. I got a kick from some of the guys at work actingtoo macho to see the flick

Btw, I'm putting it out there right now and opening myself for some jokes but I'm looking forward to Pitch Perfect

hanso 8/12/2012 5:30:23 PM

Lol, no joke son, I'm catching pitch perfect too.  I like Anna Kendrick and doesn't like hearing no diggity acapela style?  

That old guy was Kevin Nash from the WWE.  Dude trying to. Be an actor now.  Couldn't dance for shit.

For all of the posters who stated Will Ferrel can't act and always plays the same character I suggest you watch Stranger Than Fiction, Everything Must Go, and Melinda and Melinda.  All three are comedies in a way, but Ferrel actually plays a character with depth and you almost forget for 2 hours that he's Ricky Bobby or Ron Burgundy.  Many comedians have played serious roles with limited success.  Williams in Insomnia and Carrey in the Truman Show are prime examples.  So before you bury the guy, at least watch some of his films that weren't main stream comedies.
