Crop And Save
Bill Burr: Paper Tiger (2019)
So predictable it bores you to death - unless...
If you like "good old anti-PC" humour done in a really uncreative and predictable way, this is for you.
It ain't for me, which is a shame, he's been way funnier and more creative in the past. Oh well, can't win 'em all.
For edgelords only
It's just a bunch of tired old edgelord jokes. Really not my thing, but if you're into "offensive" jokes, I guess it might be yours.
(Not really just for edgelords, but honestly it's not far from it)
Simon Amstell: Set Free (2019)
Fun yet tame
It's more wholesome than shocking, more therapy than comedy and really more like listening to that one friend we all have that has had two beers too many and is sharing more than you like him to. It wasn't bad, just a tad tame.
It's a Hard Truth Ain't It (2018)
I wish it was longer
And that's the only negative thing about it. It's a insight into these mens lives and how they got to where they are at now. I would really have loved even more in depth stories, but maybe that's too much to ask of them, too private. I wish they would show these to some young people.
This is a documentary that shows the divide before and after the introduction of cell phones and social media, and the lack of laws that are in place. Throughout the documentary one is left with the question - is it a crime? Is it a crime in the eyes of the law?
We are led through one side, then the other, and I feel as uncertain as I did at the beginning about what really happened. Because things that I interpret to be jokes, or how young people speak, are taken 100% literally by the lawyers and judge. It's a very interesting case to study more if you are interested in law or true crime.
Kevin Hart: Irresponsible (2019)
Hart's low point
I have never been bored during one of Hart's specials before and I really was just waiting for the funny bits in this one. It feels forced, almost painfully so - and it feels like he's trying to find bits and pieces that won't offend anyone while still being funny - and he's failing. The charm and fun about him was always more about his comedy being believable, and now it just sounds like he's trying way too hard. A disappointing point in an otherwise very funny mans career.
Happy Family (2017)
Soulless attempt of a family movie
This movie has one good thing; cute animations.
Sadly the plot and acting (Norwegian*) and jokes all fall flat.
This movie could be called Dracula the incel or Fart jokes the movie, either way, your kids -and you- deserve better than this drivel.
The Bye Bye Man (2017)
The tagline is better than the movie
The tagline is better and more interesting than the movie.
The premise is interesting but with bad effects, less than mediocre dialogue and acting - the movie ends up going into the hall of shame.
If you want to watch a movie where you can smell the jumpscares a mile away, then fine, watch this. There is literally no other reason to.
The Meg (2018)
You wanted a sharkmovie - this is a sharkmovie
I was hoping for a kindred spirit-movie to Deep blue sea and I got it. I love everything in this movie, even the goofs. Yes, it's sometimes predictable, and yes, it's sometimes goofy, but honestly, don't watch a sharkmovie and expect and oscardrama.
It tugs on heartstrings, it spooks you, it makes you laugh, it's brilliant!
Summer of 84 (2018)
A retro horror beauty
This movie ticks all the boxes in retro horror that I like;
Scrappy bunch of misfits
Very normal neighbourhood
Possible serial killer
If you don't like movies that have these things, then this movie is not for you. If you enjoyed movies in the 80s-90s that have this kind of theme, then you will probably enjoy this.
Russell Brand: Re:Birth (2018)
As Russel Brand as it gets
He goes on an energetic rant about this and that, and if you have ever seen any of his appearances you know how this goes - he's up and down and here and there, and it's funny and that's what all about.
Trevor Noah: Son of Patricia (2018)
His best one yet
As uncomfortable as it is that he uses the n-word in his stories, he does so with elegance and in a way that always has a meaning. Son of Patricia was great, although I would've loved more about Patricia to be honest.
A fun bad movie for a no brainer-night in
If all you need is a movie that has some murders and some plot and works with popcorn ,then this is it.
If you need a good movie, with a good plot, excellent dialogue and top notch acting? This movie is not for you.
I enjoyed it, but that is the nicest thing I can say about it.
Make no mistake, this is a class. It really is Latin History for Morons, and I was glad to be educated.
John Leguizamo's dancemoves, impressions and speeches, spiced with the story of his family, really moved me, in between laughs.
I had to google stuff, I added books to my goodreads-list after this, a must-see and an exceptional show.
Joe Rogan: Strange Times (2018)
Some jokes, not worth it for me
Like, I can agree that he has some punchlines here and there, but the rest of it is so dull. The audience doesn't respond like most audiences do either, instead of clapping etc at his statements, they just wait for the punchline and that makes it less funny. You don't get the element of surprise.
D.L. Hughley: Contrarian (2018)
Mostly good, some curveballs
I enjoyed most of this comedy special, D.L. Hughley has a playful and fun way to do stand-up, and I laughed a lot. Some curveballs,meaning it wasn't everything that was funny to me, but it was overall a very good show, and I recommend it :)
Daniel Sloss: Live Shows (2018)
Dark topics and hearty laughs
Daniel Sloss easily jumps from topic to topic, effortlessly stitching the show together - going from jaw-dropping topics to heartfelt comments in the wink of an eye.
I hope there will be more!
Who is this show aimed at?
I have watched it all, and I really am confused. It seems to aim for the feminists with some of the jokes and then to the very opposite with some jokes, and I feel that it's very hard to find out who the characters really are, because of this - the continuity seems very far off sometimes. I finished it, but I must admit, I don't see how this show can get better, it is very wobbly.
And honestly, isn't the Mindblowingly Stupid Character-trope really overdone by now? I think this is where I leave this show, and honestly I have no idea who I would recommend it to.
Ricky Gervais: Humanity (2018)
It's like twitter being read out loud, except not funny
I honestly was bored out of my mind. His delivery is very full of himself and even though I appreciate the effort made to poke fun at himself and that, it just never really makes me laugh.
Not my sense of humour, I guess.
Feast in predictability
I enjoyed the first ten-fifteen minutes of the movie, and after that everything was painfully obvious. What a shame.
Also, are you allowed to be that stupid and still an astronaut? Yeah, don't waste your time on this, there are better movies out there - even though there are some pretty shots now and again.
Tig Notaro: Happy To Be Here (2018)
It's been a while since I've seen a stand up comedian that does this good a routine without being a d-bag. I laughed a lot, and it was a cute, fun routine, - very wholesome fun - not kicking up or down, just good quality fun. I look forward to her next routine!
Queer Eye (2018)
Keep your kleenex close
While I would like a queer eye with more queer diversity, I loved this. The fab 5 in this round are good at working with people and seeing them, and they seem to make everyone in their path happier. Keep your kleenex close, you are gonna need it. Fills the heart with hope and love. Enjoy.
Marlon Wayans: Woke-ish (2018)
It's Marlon Wayans. You know what you get.
If you like him, you'll most likely love this.
He's on point and over the top in a way that makes you laugh so hard you feel your lungs are about to pop.
He has excellent variation and none of the bits feels too long, and I hope he makes more specials like this, cuz he is truly hilarious.
Chris Rock: Tamborine (2018)
Not his best
While there were funny bits, he doesn't even resemble the levels of funny that I've seen from him before. He was on point with his racial issue topics, but at some points it felt more like one of those heartfelt clips on facebook, with cheesy music, than a comedyspecial. I chuckled a couple of times, but that was about it.
Maybe the lack of audience reaction at times made it even less funny than it actually was, I'm not sure. All in all, wasn't that good, but it could have been worse.
Step Sisters (2018)
Man, I wish this had worked
The actors are good at the premise they're given - I really want to see more from the leading lady, she has nuance. Like bring it on 2 this is cringy, but unlike bring it on 2, it doesn't seem to make fun of the stereotypes, the stereotypes are just ...there.
I was entertained for the most part, - and I give it 2 extra stars for the pure skill of the dancers - but if you have another movie you can watch - do it. This movie just isn't that good, some of the things in it range from an attempt of lol, to a catastrophic "they left that in there on purpose??".
