I thought those two stared in more movies together. I loved Talladega Nights but I thought Step Brothers was funnier.Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly were hilarious in Talladega Nights. They were only mildly amusing in Step Brothers. With Holmes & Watson, they have reached their nadir.
Razzie Awards: Holmes & Watson named worst movie of the year
That sounds like the perfect "movie elitist" thing to do.Last night I saw "The FP" and "The FP2: Beats of Rage".
"The FP" is a very low budget film about gangs fighting for control of the liquor supply in a town using the "Dance Dance Revolution" video game. I thought it was probably going to suck, but it did not. It was very good. It is a collection of absurd cliches treated seriously. Everyone calls each other "dog" and "bro". There are ducks. It is funnier than it ought to be.
"The FP2: Beats of Rage" was released 7 years after the first one. It was funded through IndieGoGo by fans of the first film. Sadly, it wasn't as funny as the original, although it did have several very interesting design elements.
About 50 people attended this double feature instead of watching the Oscars. After the films we Skyped with the writer/director/star, Jason Trost. Each of us also received a free Bluray of the first film. They are selling for over $50 on ebay and Amazon.
First, I read people complain that the most popular films do not win Oscars because the Academy is elitist. It's a common theme in this morning's opinion pieces. So I'm not convinced that watching the Oscars is populist.Then what is the word for poo-pooing what the masses do, and instead doing something only the hardcore movie-philes would be interested in?
