I’ts a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World (1963)

 Greed is a trope used in the realm of fiction to be associated with drama, and usually involves some very thematic elements to it. Yet the theme really has not been associated with the genre of comedy. Enter the 1963 film “It’s a Mad, Mad, Mad, Mad World”, a comedy that showcases a lot of […]

St. Vincent (2014)

 This movie opens up with our main character telling a very dry joke, which sets up the tone for the rest of the film. “St. Vincent” is a comedy that puts focus on one grumpy old man trying to come to terms with his life. The resulting effort is a gem of originality that has […]

Big Hero 6 (2014)

Comments

  1. I disagree on both of your 2 worst movie choices. The knowing was definitely entertaining with an interesting plot, although the end could have been better. Paranormal activity was interesting and certainly not the worst of 2009!

  2. Paranormal Activity could have been great… but it wasn’t scary. It just wasn’t. I went to the movie a second time, high, and it STILL wasn’t scary. And Knowing? Alex Proyas is a great director… but this really sucked. They were aliens, everyone dies, and the kids are taken to their planet to frolic and live happily? What the hell?! Rose Byrne also sucked in this movie, which is awkward since she is usually good. Also, The best movies have changed: 1. AVATAR. 2. Moon.

  3. I have yet to see Moon or Inglorious
    But I will soon.
    I didn’t like the two movies you listed as worst but I don’t think they were the worst.

    I completely agree that Inglorious Basterds is one of the best of 2009. It has a little bit of everything, Action, Romance, Thriller.( well at least to me)
    I also agree with Knowing, though it had one of those “end of the world” sort of script, in my opinion those types of movies are a hit or miss. And Knowing was definetly a miss.
