Sandra Bullock is just the best human being I've ever seen in my life. There is no situation through which she cannot laugh!

EWWWWWWWWWWWW. Adam Sandler... I'm just so sick of him! His comedy/the characters he plays are always the same, even in his "prime" on SNL. Occasionally he slips out of the mold and is actually good (like 50 first dates) but overall he's just terrible. Like Jack Black.

Adam Sandler was good, a long time ago. He's trying to make a comeback and his movies consistently flop because he's just not funny anymore. He's 90s funny, like Jerry Seinfeld and Kevin James... yet they continue to try and fail miserably.

I feel embarrassed for them.

I never found Sandler funny. Always found Seinfeld funny and probably always will. XD

(Also, can't wait for Skyfall! Seems a lot more Bondsy than Quantum of Solace did. Also, director was apparently inspired by The Dark Knight. ...Casino Royale + The Dark Knight? Two of my favourite movies had a baby! :D)

Adam Sandler was funny at one point - in the 90s - but has hardly ever been the same levels of hilarity of some of his peers. It's not hard to be funnier than a twerp like Sandler. I hope he learns a lesson from the Golden Raspberries he's getting, but he apparently has a new movie out. Not as abysmal as Jack and Jill but... still pretty damn bad. I mean, is Jack and Jill the worst movie of all time? If it isn't, it's pretty damn close. I remember laughing during the commercials - at how BAD it was. :-X

(I can't wait, either - especially after the non-Bond Quantum was so horrific. Skyfall is bound to be returning to Casino Royale form, the way QoS SHOULD have been)

Ssh, everyone. The more you talk about Adam Sandler, the more power you give him.

I gotta ask, is anyone watching Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun or Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo? I think these are two fantastic new ones, I really enjoy Sakurasou it just gets me and Tonari is one of the funniest things I've watched in ages!

OMG Is N-Ebody as exitd as I am!!!1???/!11??!11/!?!?1!

But seriously, it feels like a lot of actors are just that are incredibly obnoxious/are just bad at acting are just continually thrown into your face. Andy Samberg, (well, he was ALWAYS kind of obnoxious) Jack Black, Nicholas Cage...
Spoiler:






I mean, how are they still in movies half the time?

Why Hollywood?! WHY!?

Hey, I liked Nic Cage in Kickass! Yes, his facial hair was ridiculous, but that's not exactly something Nic can control. Poor man, he must be cursed. However, that's a topic for another thread. Actors like Nicky Cagey get roles because somehow they make a profit and sometimes they remind the public as to why they got roles in the first place, like the aforementioned Kickass.
At least, that's how I see it.
Rock on, Hollywood!

^^That's true, Nicholas Cage was okay in Kickass. Although his accent/mannerisms were weird, but that was the character, not him. :/

And now, if I may share a children's book with all of you.
I found this while browsing the internet, and it's a perfect example of why the world is beautiful. A tale of struggle, of a harrowing addiction, of wanting to fit in, of beauty...

Spoiler:

Revel in its might.

Also, you should read the customer reviews, they're hilarious.

Nicholas Cage can bite me. I really don't like him as an actor and I really wish they'd stop giving him roles because he's in a lot of movie that I'd like to see were he not in them.

Meanwhile you can criticise Jack Black all you want, but he was great in The Holiday. Man I love that movie.

The Holiday. My friends who all want to find a charming Englishman and move to a quaint cottage and drink tea LOVE this movie and they gasp when they hear you haven't seen it.



It's really just like this.

I'm afraid I have to say I haven't seen The Holiday either. In fact, I hadn't heard of it until I clicked on this thread. Oh, the shame!

Shame on all of you! Tbh though the charming Englishman isn't all that appealing. He has children and that ruins it.

I found the Jack Black / Kate Winslet story much more interesting!

Are you actually the Grinch? Like, actually? What did these poor children do to ruin the story, other than exist? Despite not having seen the movie, I am going to champion the cause to protect these poor children from your dastardly, hating ways.

Jack Black in that movie is probably the only thing he's done (outside of Muppet cameos) that makes me like him and think he's a good actor. It's like Jim Carey in Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind or Will Ferrell in Stranger Than Fiction. Why do terribly unfunny comedy actors make terribly unfunny comedies when they can actually act?

I can't imagine Jack Black in a movie like The Holiday. Idk why, when I think of Jack Black I just think of him being in those dumb comedies such as Nacho Libre. I can't imagine him in a romantic/comical film. I haven't seen much of his films though, so I can't really judge him.

The children themselves were actually pretty cute - it was more that he had to play the broken widower and single father of two and that was a bit of a downer. Plus I couldn't help but think "Cameron Diaz what are you getting yourself into? These girls will be teenagers one day and you're just gonna get a whole lot of doors slamming in your face and screams of 'YOU'RE NOT MY MOTHER!'"

Also Toshiro, look at Scarf's post for my answer to what you said XD. He was great because he wasn't being a Nacho Libre type character, it wasn't overdone lol

Has anybody else seen Dredd? I saw it at the movies a few days ago and it was cheesy as hell, yet it was actually a pretty decent movie. For what it was, it was much better than it really needed to be, and I was impressed that they actually took the effort to make it decent.
