The World's End

I don't think I could have asked for anything more from the trio of Edgar Wright, Simon Pegg, and Nick Frost. Their loveletter to genre filmmaking is given the ultimate conclusion as a group of pub-crawling friends combat body-snatching aliens and the apocalypse all for the sake of consuming booze. God this movie is fun.

I wouldn't suggest Magic Magic to those who can't handle claustrophobic moments. Anyone who has been forced to hang out with a group of people that you find bothersome will appreciate this to an extentas the lead character, played by Juno Temple, suffers a nervous breakdown from her newfound "friends." The most memorable thing about this film is Michael Cera playing a character almost too odd to figure out.

The Incredible Burt Wonderstone

With the exception of Jim Carrey wonderfully stealing scenes as a douchy Criss Angel/David Blaine hybrid, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone is a pretty hollow comedy with very few moments that brought me genuine laughter.

Pain & Gain

Michael Bay continues his underwhelming streak with Pain & Gain where he actually attempts to tone down the CGI explosions and tell more of a story. Terrific. Except Bay still manages to work in his overstylized slow motion shots, his trademark misogony, and buckets of testosterone. Supporters of this movie say that Bay is self-aware and winking at himself. Personally, I don't think Michael Bay is capable of that that level of originality. Pain & Gain just seems like Bay doing his usual routine. At least Dwayne Johnson has his moments.

You're Next is being hailed as the next groundbreaking horror movie. It is almost aggravating how not fresh this movie is. I will recognize it for keeping me engaged. With that aside, You're Next is pretty sadistic and I failed to notice the "fun" and "humor" that the critics are referring to. The amateur performances from the "mumblecore" alumni cast was also rather distracting.
