Taxi
Taxi (2004)
2 years ago via Flixster

While it is wrong to judge a book by its cover, Taxi will most certainly make you question this idiom. From a loose, uninteresting 'plot' (if you can call it that), the characters are one-dimensional and poorly executed. The soundtrack is a sub-par combination of mid-2000s predictable Top 20 hogwash and other bubblegum pop tunes not worth a damn. The only hope with this film is that it enabled natural selection to take place in the office of some Hollywood executives in L.A., thus freeing us from a world with more banal films like this one.

Crazy, Stupid, Love.

I would be lying if I didn't say that this movie was better than I expected it to be. It's funny, quirky, and makes relevant pop culture references. The ending is, sadly, incredibly predictable - but that's to be expected. However, much of the dialogue comes off as disappointedly flat. Furthermore-without spoiling the ending-there are a lot of disturbing social messages conveyed by the "morals" taught in the film.

The Cabin in the Woods

I am trying to imagine the best way to review this film without spoiling anything; I'll leave it to this: it's not at all what you'd expect. Great acting, awesome plot, and an unsurprising soundtrack. Seriously, though, as the description says, "f you think you know this story, think again."

The problem with 'Ted' isn't that it's unfunny - it's that it's uninteresting. Imagine a few real-life episodes of TV show Family Guy with a continuous plot-line, but take out much of the flashback humor and intriguing dialogue. The real question is why this had to be nearly 2 hours long.

That's My Boy
That's My Boy (2012)

Unfunny, predictable, and an all-out assault on viewers' intelligence. Sandler somehow finds a way to make jokes about pedophelia, incest, and other sexual deviances seem old, boring, and unremarkable. Do not watch this film, unless you want to hear nearly 2 hours of Sandler speaking with a speech impediment.
