Late Reviews: Pineapple Express & Tropic Thunder

I’ve been slacking. This isn’t a reflection on how I felt about the movies but I just didn’t have it in me to write comments about a movie. Anywho…

Pineapple Express

I was kinda disappointed. I enjoyed it and laughed alot but it was clearly a movie written through a series of puff-puff-pass sections as there were parts where the plot just disappeared. Plus, any movie that can’t find anything funny for Gary Cole to do has committed a crime against comedy gods.

That said, Danny McBride is quickly becoming the guy who steals every scene he’s in.

The best thing for me was seeing James Franco get a comedic role. just because he’s a pretty boy who looks like James Dean doesn’t mean he should be doing dramas. Anyone who watched Freaks & Geeks knows how funny he could be in a laidback way.

Tropic Thunder

Now this movie was hilarious. There were definitely parts where it dragged but when it was funny, it was asthmatically hysterical.

If Heath Ledger doesn’t get Best Supporting Actor for The Joker, I hope Robert Downey Jr. does (although I’d like to think Hollywood would flinch at nominating a guy in blackface no matter how inoffensive I found it). Better yet, Tom Cruise should get the nomination
