Mr. Nobody by jaemskeray

More like Mr. Nobody should watch this movie, ayo!  So, Jarred Leto is an old guy, and he cant die in his flashbacks in the past, but he can die when he’s old in the future.  In the sci fi future, when Jarred is old, humans figured out how to not die.  But somehow Jarred is the only person who CAN die, which is strange because he keeps having flashbacks to when he is younger and when he can’t die.  Like he keeps on getting into terrible accidents and not dying.  His character is obviously a moron, because he keeps on putting himself in these perilous situations where, by all accounts, he should be a dead man.  But, not only does he somehow keep living, but in his flashbacks he keeps switching between 3 different timelines, 3 alternate lives where he has 3 different hot wives.  So he’s just this stupid lucky moron.  And this is all done in a manner that is very frustrating to watch because you don’t care about any of the characters, there’s just nothing to hold onto in this movie.  Anyway, yeah, there are other bad parts, poor acting, terrible accents, I could go on.  It reminded me of Atlas Cloud, which I hated.   Unwatchable

Vegucated is a documentary about a vegan lady who asks 3 strangers to become vegan for 6 weeks.  She then proceeds to tell / show them all the shitty things about the food industry in the US (see my post of Food Inc.).  And that is really hard to watch.  I had to stop the movie a couple of times.  So, the 3 people all loose a bunch of weight and drop their blood sugar levels.  Lets all become vegans, I’m serious, at least try a bit?  Worth Watching.

Food, Inc. by jaemskeray

Food, Inc. is a documentary from Robert Kenner about how we get our food in the US.  The film shows that the corporate industrialization of our food manufacturing is a) bad for the environment, b) unhealthy for and exploiting the consumers, c) dangerous, unhealthy and abusive to the employees, and d) torturous to the animals we kill and eat.  But now that we have this information, 5 years after the movie came out, whats the fucking point?  The movie says we can vote with our grocery list and choose organic!   But, even the organic companies are having to adopt big industrial farms practices just to keep up with the industrial farms (Vegucated).  We could all become vegans, but thats literally not going to happen, not that I am not going to become vegan, maybe I will, but everyone isn’t going to become vegan.  Then, there’s the close relation between the corporate food companies and our politicians, the lack of education on proper nutrition, the economy making it hard for poor people to make healthy choices, and technology drawing the more fortunate away from a public discourse and into the comfort of our homes in front of our devices to write blog posts about the world’s injustices that do little but make ourselves feel better: shit.  So, what do you think? Worth Watching

Pandora’s Promise by jaemskeray

The documentary about nuclear power says that back in the 70s and 80s the oil and coal companies saw nuclear as a threat.  So, they said it as unsafe (which it is if it is not handled properly); and promoted wind and solar as safe and clean alternatives.  The way they did this was through posing as environmentalists or clean energy companies.  They did this was because they knew a fact that many people still don’t know, that solar and wind power, although clean, cannot give us enough energy because they are fickle energy sources dependent on the weather.   They knew that every time you set up a solar or wind power plant to run a city, something has to power that city when there is no sunlight or wind.  And if its not nuclear, then its oil and coal.  So, just think about that: the expansion or solar and wind plants actually means the expansion of oil and coal.   Screw the oil and coal companies for playing the American citizens and screw them for causing the global warming that will inevitably kill us all for their petty greed.  Not only do I think its a required viewing but I feel that we should research this further, and possibly invest in and support nuclear power.  Required Viewing.

The Grapes of Wrath by Thomas

This is the definitive “social issue” movie — when we watched it in high school, after reading the novel, the teacher emphasized how much the story had been simplified and Hollywood-ized. But this time I kept thinking how bold the movie is, for its time.  Worth watching.


The Grapes of Wrath

Her by jaemskeray

Her is a movie about a man who falls in love with his computer OS.  It takes place in a futuristic utopian pristine city where there are no poor people or dirt, I like Thomas’s Blade Runner in the day time comment.  Thats kind of an interesting thing about this movie, most sci fi takes place in a dystopian society, an upsetting or frightening version of the future.  But this is a very stylized vision of our future, kind of like a white people’s problems sci fi.  But, it was really entertaining, very well acted, and very artful.  Worth Watching.


In A World… by jaemskeray

In this indie comedy, Lake Bell is a girl trying to follow in her dad’s footsteps and break into the voice over movie commercial business.  The only problem is shes a girl, and its a male dominated industry.  Not even her own dad, a legend in the industry, is willing to help her out.  You know why?  Cause he’s jealous.  I really liked this comedy.  I think Lake Bell wrote this movie, I look forward to more from her.  Worth Watching

So, the problem with reviewing stand up comedy specials, is that there is no story to describe.  So, its all about how much you like the person and their jokes, which means its really just a reflection of the reviewer, more so than just a regular movie review.  That being said, Im gonna continue reviewing them because I do manage to watch a lot of them since they are shorter than normal movies.  I like this comedy special.  I think John Mulaney’s self deprecating humor is funny.  And if you like me, or my sense of humor, then you will probably think that this for the most part is funny.  Worth Checking Out.


Reggie Watts Why $#!+ So Crazy? by jaemskeray

Reggie Watts is silly.  Very silly.  This stand up comedy special ain’t your momma’s stand up comedy special, if you know what I mean.   And if you don’t know what I mean, well then I will elaborate.  I mean that in your mother’s time, probably the 1960s, things just weren’t, well, as silly as this.  I mean, maybe they were, but it was just, you know, different.  You know?  Like, Reggie, he speaks to us.  Like, with a public address speaker system and everything.  And sometimes he stops speaking, and instead, he’s singing.  And these songs he sings, they are, in a word, silly.  He’s like, nonsensical; BUT it makes perfect sense to us, you know, our generation, cause, well, thats what we are about.  You know?  Or, maybe we are, I don’t wanna label it or nothing.  But, you know, its like, cool. —  If you liked that, this stand up special is Worth Checking Out.  I definitely enjoyed this stand up, just for the man’s creativity alone.  Here’s the album.

Brian Posehn: The Fartist by jaemskeray

How could a title that is so funny be such a bad movie?  Maybe its just me, but I don’t want to hear about the gross things you think about and do with/to strippers and prostitutes.  That makes me majorly uncomfortable and sad for you.  It doesn’t make me happy, which is why I watch stand up comedy.  But I guess thats why I stopped watching it.  Unwatchable.
