duff challenge

The Duff is a teen comedy about a “designated ugly fat friend”, who decides to change into a hot chick. Wait, are the 90s really back? No, no, they are not. Unfortunately, this film doesn’t evoke She’s All That, though it desperately wishes that it did. Please watch the video above for my full review.

4.5 out of 5

demolition man poster

Hello, beloved viewers, and welcome to another article from the least famous man you have ever met. Giving you my opinion about things you don’t care about, whether you like it or not. Today we are talking about the beautiful world of “Demolition Man”, played by that one actor, Sylvester Stallone. He’s a man who can scream throughout most of his acting career, and become one of the most well renown actors.

I can't believe that I've never seen, let alone, played this.-missemmamm

The movie starts out at the end of an unassumingly endless confrontation between the Demolition Man and Simon Phoenix (Wesley Snipes). This results in the deaths of several innocent lives. By the way, if your nickname is the Demolition Man you need to assume at least two things: 1. if you are in the police force and your constant actions give you that nickname….maybe you should be at a desk filing paperwork so you don’t cause the death of anybody, 2. the most obvious reason, YOU SHOULD NOT BE IN THE FIELD DUE TO YOUR CONSTANT RECKLESSNESS.

Having said that, do not get me wrong. I understand the pull to the audience. It was during a time when explosions and rippling muscles were what made classic cinematic masterpieces. Even today, it still does make for some potential classics, but I digress.

Due to the said death of several innocents, John Spartan receives a frozen sentence of many years. Though, he does end up getting his sentence cut short. This happens, when Phoenix blows up everything and kills everyone. Blows up and kills everyone…or like maybe, three people. This is a peaceful future where the biggest string of crime is graffiti.

Anyway, stuff happens where they show weird future stuff, like the three shells and Taco Bell being the only fast food chain left, resulting in it becoming high class cuisine. After conflicts and a scene of sex but, no sex, Spartan freezes and crushes Phoenix (aka Mr Murder Death Kill). This shows off to the other cops what he can do and he also exchanges bodily fluids with the token female cop. Shows the cops what to do and exchanges bodily fluids with token female cop (Sandra Bullock as Lenina Huxley).

There are some interesting things that I noticed, which they never really touched upon. For instance, is wife and his daughter, or rather just his daughter. You see, they do mention that his wife was killed or murdered or just in general, is not around anymore. But, they hardly touch upon his daughter or even let him know that she is alive. Maybe there is something that I missed, but I don’t know. I’ve only watched the movie once, and so maybe I’m going to catch something next time that I didn’t during my initial viewing, but, until then, I’m only going to assume that them not mentioning what happened to his daughter is either a cop out, or just general laziness.

NOW, here is why I love this movie. I am a man. I love explosions, unnecessary murder and guns. I can’t help it. It’s in my blood. It’s what i breath. It’s how I live. Boom, Boom, pow, and all of that other junk.

This movie really was fun. I’m 23. I feel kind of embarrassed when I say that I haven’t seen this movie before. According to missemmamm, the amount of incredible movies that I’ve never seen is shocking. I promise that I will see them, one at a time. But, I do feel like it gives me a unique perspective. The perspective of someone in my generation, who hasn’t seen a movie quite like the ones from ten, twenty, or thirty years ago. So, I want to type about these little treasures from a fresher look, from a later generation.

All in all, from the ramblings of a mad, intoxicated, 23 year old, I think I am going to give this movie, a 4.5 out of 5. The only reason, being that I do not know what the three sea shells are for….but i am still not sure if that is a good or a bad thing.

Warning: Spoilers Abound (for the first film, as well)

ht2 fam

Hello, children. Today, I have a special little story for you. Recently, missemmamm, my lovely temptress, and I decided to go see a movie. What movie did we go see, you ask? Well, keep reading and I might tell you. Man, you guys can be impatient sometimes, you know?

Anyway, we went to go see Hotel Transylvania 2. It’s that movie with Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg, whose names sound extremely close to each other. The fact that they both were musical talent on SNL also seems a little more of a coincidence. But, oh well, back on to my ravings of a mad man.

The story of the first Hotel Transylvania took place in the year whatever the fuck. Dracula builds a castle for the protection of all monsters, including his newborn baby girl, to save them from the horrors of the human race. As years pass, his child wishes to leave the castle and explore the world. Fearing for her safety, Adam Draculer builds a fake city using zombies as townsfolk to scare her from leaving. It works. Yada, Yada, Yada.

Andy Sandberg shows up and is like “dude”. The daughter, having never met another man her age, falls in love instantly. Now, the reason I’m talking about the story of the first movie isn’t really to give you a lot of backstory. It’s to show that this movie is already giving a bit of a racial undertone. Dracula is afraid of Andy Johnnystein because he is a human and humans are not to be trusted. Now, we don’t really see any hints of racism show up until his daughter starts to express her feelings. Dracula says that it’s unheard of, disgusting, and fearful. In the end, they fall in love. Dracula accepts Andy into his vampire heart and accepts his daughter is going to love him, regardless of his opinion.

Now, let’s turn to the second movie. I just want to point out that I know everything in this movie was in all good fun. I’m not trying to derail you from watching this movie, because I personally loved it. The message they were getting across isn’t the blatant racism, but how they react to it. It’s how in the end, it didn’t matter the race of species. Whether monster or human, mattered, but how they were able to accept each other, rather than just tolerate them. The story of the movie itself is incredible. The general racism in the movie is only there to show that in the end, none of it mattered. Then again, as I said, earlier, these are probably just the ramblings of a mad man who pays too much attention to these movies. Okay, now that that’s out of the way…

Now, fast forward a few years. The young couple are married. They have a half-breed baby, half vampire and half human. Now, I wont go into too much detail about this movie, except for a couple key parts. Mavis wants to move to Andy’s hometown. Dracula wants them to stay for two reasons: he wants to protect the baby from the outside world and he wants to try to get the child’s baby fangs to grow. Everyone believes the boy is human, but Dracula is determined to prove otherwise.

Okay, so there’s the general plot. Now, Andy’s parents are your typical suburban couple, who are now in the movie series to show their tolerance of monsters. Thinking they are abnormal and that their grandson shouldn’t be in that kind of environment, because they think that he is a human as well. Now to try to convince them to stay, they brought two “mixed couples” to show how “progressive there community is”. One of the couples was supposed to be a werewolf and a woman. The man who they thought was a werewolf just had a big beard. So, it was generally just typical monster profiling. There’s another scene, in which Dracula’s father made it very clear how disgusting he thought it was that humans and monsters were mingling together. There is actually a straight shot of his face saying that it’s wrong. That’s when it went from subtle to in your face.

Finally, at the end of the movie, the grandfather’s henchman, realizing that the baby was a half-breed, screamed his own personal disgust. After threatening his friend, the boys vampire blood awoke to kick some serious racist ass. Following, was an incredible fight scene of bats versus humans and monsters working together. The whole movie moving to a head, into a full blown race war, goddamn. Now, in the end of the movie, they won, kicking ass. Good triumphs over evil.

Like I said, I really, really liked this movie, including the art style and the story. Usually, whenever it comes to sequels, I’m very touch and go. However, this one really was an enjoyable ride. As I said earlier, I’m not discouraging anyone to see this movie. Racial undertones were definitely in it, but only to show a positive message that it is not okay to treat somebody differently. Whether they are human, monster, or unicorn.
