The Darkest Hour
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

The Darkest Hour is a cheesy, nonsensical alien invasion flick...that I had a lot of fun watching. It's like what would happen if you made a bargain bin version of Independence Day set in Moscow, stole the aliens from Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, sprinkled some Ghostbusters (Old school 80's films, not the shitty 2016 film), and the mixed it with a dystopian sci-fi flick. It's an odd blend, but I found it to be a fun guilty pleasure with plenty of over the top action, goofy acting, campy dramatic moments, and a handful of interesting ideas. If you're up for some cheesy popcorn entertainment,The Darkest Hour will scratch that itch.

Fantastic Four
4 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Hailed as one of the worst superhero films ever, it tanked the career of its director (Which also cost him his job as the director of a Star Wars film), was butchered to hell by the studio, and was also a financial flop. Fantastic Four is a pretty run-of-the-mill origins story, but with a darker color palette and is also super serious in tone. Still, despite all the bad reviews, I had enough fun with this version (I greatly prefer it to the 2005 film). It's stupid, poorly written, and the actors are left hanging, but for me, it had just enough camp value to elevate it guilty pleasure status. I liked the action scenes, I liked the interesting nuggets of character development, and it also gave me some good laughs (I love the indifference Reed's teacher has to his dreams and his world-changing technology at a science fair). I sure as hell can't recommend this to other people - only for people have extreme tolerance for stupid, nonsensical action films. I had more fun than I should have, but oh well.

Airplane 2 - The Sequel
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Aww...but I loved Airplane II: The Sequel. I won't deny that this film's greatest fault is trying to follow the original too closely, but it still had plenty of moments (William Shatner's role is fucking hysterical). Despite similarities to its predecessor, I think that this sequel has plenty of its own comedic bite. I think that this film is a worthy comedy in its own right and one of the most underrated comedy sequels ever made alongside Beverly Hills Cop II, Kick-Ass 2, and Anchorman 2.

Airplane!
Airplane! (1980)
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Airplane! is one of those films where if you're not having a blast and laughing your ass off, you're dead inside. It's the classic, forever quotable comedy that has hardly aged at all since its release in 1980. Hell, even the old jokes that don't make sense to modern viewers still manage to be funny (Like the odd reference to a coffee commercial from the 70's). It's a manic, over the top, crazy comedy that lampoons everything from airport disaster films (A common genre back in the 70's) to romantic dramas with other pop culture references. It's a glorious comedy that all other spoof films aspire to be like (Though few ever achieve the heights of this one) and it's easy to see why. If you enjoy watching comedies, Airplane! is not a film you can miss.

Superhero Movie
11 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

Though hated by critics and audiences, I must confess that I've always had great fondness for Superhero Movie. I enjoy it so much that I like quoting lines from it. Sure, it stumbles at some points due to some jokes (Who remembers the "Fave Five" cell phone plan?), but for the most part, I found it to be a very enjoyable, hilarious parody of the 2002 Spider-Man film (While also taking jabs at X-Men, Batman, and Fantastic Four). It's goofy, over the top fun from beginning to end because of the performances (Leslie Nielsen, anyone?), the very successful jokes ("You're nothing but an ugly, ungrateful little whore! Just like your mother!" "Who was that?" "My mother."), and its infectious enthusiasm. I have watched this film multiple times and I will continue to enjoy it as time goes by. It's one of my ultimate guilty pleasures in comedy genre.
