I'm generally easy to get along with, but I really don't like when people get made fun of. I like movies and (alternative rock) music, and I like to go to concerts quite often. My favorite part of the Pittsburgh City Paper is Savage Love.

    Until the lyrics come to the forefront, it TOTALLY sounds like it keeps repeating, "Boner, boner, I can see your boner." But then the main singer ruins it by over-dubbing, "Aura, aura, I can see your aura."

    Re: “This Is the End
    So, every comedic star EVER is partying at James Franco's house. Suddenly, a giant pit full of magma opens in the backyard, emitting hell-spawn. No, it's not DOOM 5. It's "This is the End." I frankly can't conceive of how it was made, because every single member of the cast is an A-List celebrity. My best guess is that they weren't in it primarily for the money, as they all seem to be having an absolute BLAST! Which is the biggest reason why this film works so well-- It's obviously not forced. It's like watching all your favorite stars at play.

    This movie is tied with "We're the Millers" as my favorite comedy. 5/5

    Re: “Grown Ups 2
    I'd have to totally disagree with this article. Al Hoff says, "No news here: This sequel is just as unfunny and puerile as its predecessor." Incorrect! Actually, it should win a Grammy. Somehow, it's even worse. 0/5

    Re: “Despicable Me 2
    I was one of the (apparently surprisingly few) people who really enjoyed this movie. While the poop and fart jokes DID detract, they were thankfully few-and-far-between, actually. I particularly enjoyed how there's an entirely NEW baddie group, a la the Batman or Spiderman movies. It WAS aimed more at children this time, which accounts for the poop, farts, boogers, etc. that most people (myself included) could've done without, but for every roll-of-the-eyes there were 4 or more laughs, and 80% is a B or solid C. 4/5

    Re: “2 Guns
    This review by Al Hoff pretty much says everything that I was planning on saying. A GENEROUS 1.5/5.

    Re: “We're the Millers
    Just saw "We're the Millers." Easily the funniest comedy since "Superbad." The main thing of note is, despite what every review that I've read has said, it's not all that "extreme" or "vulgar." I went with a friend rather than Mom because of how "over-the-top" it was supposed to be. If you read the ratings factor under the "R" it goes on for 4 or 5 lines. That gives a TOTAL misconception. I think that what got censors so up-in-arms was that it was MALE nudity, so let's scare off as many prospective moviegoers as possible. It's just a funny scene that, if taken out, would kill one of the best jokes of the movie. Easily 5/5.
