Adam Sandler’s Movie Career – An Unbiased Look

A picture is worth a thousand words…so here are a couple of thousands words that I think show why he’s the creatively saddest and the most talentless person to come out of Hollywood.

You might say this is a biased look purely because I despise the guy as an “artist” but I think looking at how his movies have been rated by thousands of people (who are not me) is pretty unbiased.

These are the Rotten Tomatoes ratings of all the movies Adam Sandler starred in and all the movies his production company made.

Horror Movie Drinking Game

We all know horror movies are full of cliches (even the best of them). And in all honesty, these cliches are what make them horror movies, they’re what make them fun.

So why not add to the fun by turning your horror movie into a drinking game.

Drink every time:

I Want to Punch the Producer of Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star in the Face

As much as I hate to write a critical post about a movie, it has to be done. The movie I’m referring to is Bucky Larson: Born to Be a Star.

Who read the script to this piece-of-crap-to-be and thought it would make a good movie? I’ll tell you who: Nobody. I’m pretty? damn sure that even the producer – whom I will reveal later (hint: he’s an a**hole) – wasn’t dumb enough to think that this premise would make a good film. He most likely knew it would be a pile of crap but made it anyway.

If this doesn’t scream out “I’m a piece of crap pretending to be a movie” I don’t know what does

Summer 2011: Summer of the Raunchy Comedy

During the past few years, Hollywood has seen a big increase in the release of raunchy comedies (a.k.a. R-rated). Many people in the movie industry attribute this to producer and director Judd Apatow, whose hugely successful 40 Year Old Virgin was largely responsible for the influx of movies like Kocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Superbad and The Hangover and for plummeting actors like Seth Rogen, Paul Rudd, Jonah Hill and Zach Galifianakis from unknowns to household names.

You might argue that this was the summer of superheros since Thor, Captain America, Green Lantern and X-Men: First Class were released. However, although these movies performed fairly well at the box office, with the exception of Green Lantern (it had a budget of $200 Million but only brought in about $116 Million at US box office), I think their success was overshadowed by that of the R-rated comedies.

Trailer Trend: Spoilers

Most of us believe that spoilers are bad. We believe that if we know who Luke’s father is, Star Wars isn’t as good. If we know Snape killed Dumbledore, Harry Potter is ruined. Or if we know that Bruce Willis’ character was dead the whole time, it takes away from our enjoyment of The Sixth Sense.

A horrible trend in movies today is to release trailers that give away too much. Some give away big twists that are essential to the movie, while others pretty much show you the whole movie in two minutes.

I made a list of some of the most recent and high profile offenders that came to my mind. So if you haven’t seen any of these movies, this is your only warning: SPOILERS.
