RIPPA

MAY 2015 MOVIE THREAD

Recommended Posts

Bamboozled was kinda like Spike Lee doing a 21st century update of Ellison's Invisible Man. Didn't completely work, but I admired the ambition. Tommy Davidson really stood out to me.

Great White Hype is fucking hilarious, one of my favorite sports films.

Hulu sent me an offer for a month free, so I turned it on in order to watch a couple of Criterion selections. I will try to post what I can see in this thread.

Noah sucked. Some of it was gorgeous, but it was dumb. And the whole subplot that Noah has to kill a baby? Come on, man.

A high school senior instigates a social pecking order revolution after finding out that she has been labeled the DUFF - Designated Ugly Fat Friend - by her prettier, more popular counterparts.

 

Did the people making the movie notice that the girl playing the "ugly fat friend", well, isn't? 

 

Presumably this was produced by the same people who didn't notice that in she's all that the lead actress is clearly a stunning fashion model even before she takes off glasses.

C'mon, Reed, she's wearing overalls...she's obviously ugly and fat. :)

 

 

Apparently they're rebooting She's All That.

 

I look forward to them putting Selena Gomez or Megan Fox in the lead and everyone in the school treating her like she's Quasimodo because she has a pony tail and wears flannel.

That's how I felt watching it recently. You sit there and it's like "what the fuck did he just say? Seriously?" For my money the black/white buddy cop thing is done way better in Die Hard With A Vengeance, and they take race on properly.

Full disclosure, I cannot have a TV playing and pass by Die Hard With A Vengeance and not stop to watch the whole thing.

Die Hard with a Vengeance is awesome and doesn't get nearly enough love. Also, Ludvig Borga is in it for about 15 seconds.

Die Hard with a Vengeance has been on a lot lately...and I stop to watch it every time.

Don't forget glasses. We all know only outcasts wear glasses.

Thoughts about "Duff":

1) What's the veejay Duff up to?

2) The porn parody starts with "Up the ..."

3) The title reminds me of the DGUSA stable the "Dumb Ugly Fucks."

The DGUSA stable was the Dirty Ugly Fucks.

I used to watch this show where Rachael Leigh Cook was playing an FBI agent. It was really unrealistic, she kept arresting these sleazy bastards and not one of them ever tried to hit on her character even slightly... or even mention that she's too good looking to be an FBI agent and she should be a model or an actress or something. Even though she looks exactly like Rachael Leigh Cook.

Regarding that poster for the Duff, one, y'all are sleeping on the boots she's wearing. Obviously DUFF material. Second, is the dude in that poster an undercover cop trying to infiltrate a drug dealing ring because that guy looks like he's in his 30s.

To be fair, Mae Whitman's got a history of playing "Hollywood Homely" characters.

That's a good description.

I'm still a little troubled by it. She probably doesn't have a problem with it so maybe I shouldn't care, but I seem to recall her being a little bigger on Parenthood. She's obviously lost weight of that's the case. Taking a role where you're supposedly "fat" feels wrong. It also send a pretty fucked up message to some kids who watch that thinking that person is supposedly fat.

Seriously: if DUFF isn't a satire and you don't have at least one or two characters point out "um, people realize she's not actually fat, right?" this might be one of the grossest teen films I've heard of.

 

Man, no wonder teenagers are so fucked up.

The actually say in one of the trailers that DUFF isn't literal (I am assuming its in the movie too)

And when Dr. Ken says that he was a DUFF, it serves to reinforce that point. I think that it'll be hammered home multiple times that she's not fat.

I'm pretty sure this board just put more thought and discussion into the movie than anyone involved in the making of it ever did.

This is the kind of go-get-em-tive-ness that's been lacking in this thread for a long time.   Rippa should be an example to ALL OF YOU!

 

 

I'm the least of the libraries problems

 

Somewhere between dick drawings in tables of contents and hobos arguing with the turnstiles over who was in line for the bathroom first.  "Goddamn you, tin man, I'm made of flesh and I need to go NOW!!!"

Angus is fucking awesome

 

And it has a great Greenday song in the soundtrack.

 

Anyone who does not love Angus is dead to me.

The Last Boy Scout's virulent misogynism is just about as bad as 48 Hrs.' virulent racism. Actually, worse.

 

48 Hrs is still win.

 

Last Boy Scout does not have any scene in it as awesome as Reggie Hammond vs, Rednecks at Torchy's.

 

No line in LBS is more awesome that Lack Of Pussy Makes You Brave.
