Attack of the Crappy Movies

Ok - maybe I am just a movie snob, but I am so sick of the stupid humor in movies and the fact that none of them have any sort of plot whatsoever. We spent weeks and weeks waiting on Hot Tub Time Machine to come up as available on Netflix. I watched about fifteen minutes of it and couldn't get past the overuse of the F word every other word. Is that really what film makers think is necessary to make a movie funny? I understand that sometimes it is quite humorous ... like the line in The Ringer "When the f*ck did we get ice cream?" Now that was funny. F-ing this and F-ing that throughout the entire movie is not funny. I gave up on Hot Tub Time Machine and went upstairs to watch an episode of Lie to Me (an intelligent show that has yet to even imply the use of the F word).

We also waited for weeks and weeks for the movie Cop Out to come up as available. If you have any brains in your head whatsover, don't even bother renting this movie. It almost took me an entire box of wine to get through it. At one point I was so bored with it that I actually started balancing the checkbook. How bad does a movie have to be when balancing the checkbook is preferable to watching it? Pretty F*cking bad !!!

Where are all the good movies? What has happened to Hollywood? Have you seen the movie Idiocracy - there is a scene in it where the latest popular movie is literally people sitting in the theater watching some guys butt up on the big screen. Is that where we are headed? If so then I am going to have to buy more boxed wine and open more checking accounts just to survive it.


  1. Oh, the answer is easy. Hollywood died with Humphrey Bogart, Katherine Hepburn, Cary Grant. That was Hollywood at its finest (on the big screen...not necessarily their personal lives). Those movies are the best!!!
