Wick-Quoting #49: Crazy, Stupid, Love.

“I’m going to help you rediscover your manhood.  Do you have any idea where you could have lost it?”

=======================================================

I didn’t have any sort of strong interest in watching Crazy, Stupid, Love. (from now on referred to as CSL).  The trailer didn’t show any sort of promise, besides the fact of having Steve Carell and Emma Stone, both being very funny people.  So I was shocked at how entertaining the movie actually turned out to be.  CSL is a lot similar to Bridesmaids – not because the stories are the same, but because both are not as popular romantic comedies that are actually topnotch in their genre.

Michae... I mean Steve Carell pulling on some moves

It is no surprise that the cast of the movie helps with the entertainment – after all, Steve Carell and Emma Stone both starred in successful romantic comedies themselves (The 40 Year-Old Virgin and Easy A respectively).  Steve Carell is always fun to watch, although in this movie he plays more of a middle aged loser than a goofy guy.  All the other actors are alright too and the kid actor, Jonah Bobo, is surprisingly not that bad.  He is not one of those kid actors who make you cringe.

The couple in question

The situational humor is pretty good in CSL and there is one moment in the movie where all the separate stories come together, creating a pretty awesome scene of confusion, anger, and awkwardness. Even though I find some parts of the story to be a bit shallow, the movie still is touching and runs on the ideal of giving second chances.  So despite the awful trailer, give CSL a second chance and watch it.  The movie is guaranteed to give you some good laughs.

Wick-Quoting #47: X-Men: First Class

“Let’s just say I’m Frankenstein’s monster. I’m looking for my creator.”

=======================================================

I must say, the trailer for X-Men: First Class was “eh” and my attitude towards it was “eh.”  But it is spectacular; even if you are not into Marvel comics, it will still entertain.  Why is X-Men: First Class so much better than the recent superhero movies that are coming out nowadays?  It is because the movie focuses a lot more on character development along with its flashy graphics and story development.

The first group of X-Men

The film is a prequel to the X-Men trilogy, centering on the early days of Magneto (Michael Fassbender) and Professor Xavier (James McAvoy).  Both characters interact with each other very well, one being more funny while the other more bad ass. Who knew Professor Xavier had a sense of humor?  And there were a couple of interesting cameos, including Hugh Jackman returning as Wolverine.

He has hair!

The main thing I don’t like about the movie is Mystique (Jennifer Lawrence) – she is very annoying as a character.  She is Professor X’s little (adopted) sister, yet she has romantic feelings for him?  After he rejects her, she moves on to another guy, then after that, she sides with the group who attacked her teammates?  I guess her personality matches with her ability – a person with multiple faces.

Call me Magneto

The movie reminds me quite a lot of Star Wars: Episode III, (when Anakin turns into Darth Vader) cause you know what happens to the characters (who ends up on which side) but you don’t know how it all happens.  Like Star Wars: Episode III, X-Men: First Class can be considered a nice success, making over $320 million so far.  However, unlike Episode III, First Class is a movie worth watching.
