Happy Pride Month!

Figured this would be a good time to finally put together a list of my top 5 LGBT movies. It's not an incredibly balanced list - leans pretty heavily towards the L. I'm hoping to expand this once I finally get my shit together and get to the tons of other LGBT movies that have been on my watch list forever. (Why must you be so rare and expensive, all the DVDs I want?)




Honorable Mention:
But I'm A Cheerleader
Year Released: 2000
Starring: Natasha Lyonne, Clea Duvall, Melanie Lynskey, Cathy Moriarty, RuPaul
Tagline: A Comedy Of Sexual Disorientation
One-Sentence Summary: A cheerleader suspected of being a lesbian gets sent to a ridiculously pink conversion camp, where she learns a lot about life and falls for a fellow female camper.
Happy Ending?: Yes

This movie is ridiculous...ly funny. Great cast, big gay crushes, lots of laughs, awkward heterosexual relations simulation, happy ending. What more could you want?

Dudley Do-Right is a 1999 comedy film that's based on a segment from The Rocky and Bullwinkle Show.

Plot

Dudley Do-Right's rival, Snidely K. Whiplash, becomes in charge of Semi Happy Valley. Dudley tries to save his city and impress Nell Fenwick. However Dudley gets fired so he gets mentored by a prospector named Kim J. Darling.

Dudley Do-Right got mocked for not being that entertaining, but I disagree with that. This film is tons of fun with several clever and hilarious scenes. The plot is interesting from beginning to end. This film succeeds at having a interesting plot and having great comedy. This film is mostly for jokes with a few sweet moments that are nice.

Cast

Brendan Fraser played Dudley Do-Right and it's hard to think of a better casting choice for Dudley than Brendan. Brendan was wonderful at making Dudley a likeable, charming, and fun hero. Alfred Molina is delightfully silly as Snidely. Sarah Jessica Parker played the damsel in distress parody character Nell Fenwick very well. Eric Idle is entertaining as the caring and eccentric prospector.

Lately I've been in a decade kinda mood. I've made articles for my favorite 90s and 00s TV series/movies and am in the process of doing a 90s movie one. Since there is no decent club for the 10s yet and it seems a bit presumptuous to make one now, I decided to post this article here. Of course I already made a poll that nobody answered, so logically making an article that nobody will read is the next step. Enjoy!

This was such a great movie. So great in fact, that I didn't even need a stellar cast to get me to go see it. The premise alone was intriguing. I know this is a remake, but I really have no desire to see the original. This movie was everything I needed and then some. It had a surprising twist that I didn't see coming either.

"The people you love, they're the only ones who can hurt you."



I love the White House. I love action. I love action movies IN the White House. I also love Gerard Butler and siege movies. And just America. Anyway this was a great fun movie. In television's greatest show 24, there was a series of episodes in which the White House was invaded by terrorists...

No need to clean your glasses. You read that right. I liked the Dirty Dancing remake.

First, I need to disclose that I have never actually seen the original Dirty Dancing. I tried about a week ago, after seeing a promo for this, but I only made it about half an hour in before skimming the Wikipedia summary and calling it quits. I know the original is regarded as a classic and has a lot of fans, so I mean you all no disrespect. It's just not my cup of tea. (Or slice of giant watermelon?)

Second, if you're reading this still thinking I'm joking about liking it, or came here wanting to troll, save us both some time and move along.

If you are unaware: Dirty Dancing is a 2017 made-for-tv remake of a 1987 movie starring Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze. The remake, which shall henceforth be known as Dirty Dancing 2.0, is in the form of a musical and stars Abigail Breslin, Colt Prattes, Sarah Hyland, Debra Messing, Katey Sagal, Bruce Greenwood, J. Quinton Johnson and Billy Dee Williams. It originally aired on ABC on May 24, 2017.

Yoga Hosers is a 2016 comedy film. The film was directed by Kevin Smith. The film stars Kevin Smith's daughter, Johnny Depp's daughter, and Johnny Depp.

The Plot:

Kevin Smith and Johnny Depp's daughters play a duo of store workers who are best friends. 1 night a bunch of trouble happens at the store. Some weird creatures and 2 dangerous guys show up. It's up to a detective played by Johnny Depp to help the store workers.

Yoga Hosers is delightfully eccentric. This film makes little sense, but that makes the film more creative and fun. I had more fun watching this crazy film than I did watching most recent films. Kevin Smith did a impressive job at making this film so good.

The Cast:

Kevin Smith and Johnny Depp's daughters are amusing enough, but the main scene stealer is Johnny Depp. Johnny played the same character that he played in Tusk. Johnny gets to be very entertaining character in this film. Justin Long is also very entertaining in this film. Justin played a yoga teacher who rips off Yogi Bear.

Going in Style is a 2017 comedy film. The film has some famous actors including Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin, Matt Dillon, and Christopher Lloyd.

The Plot:

Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin play a trio of friends who get ripped off by their bank. Michael Caine's character is at risk of losing his house so he and his 2 best friends team up to steal the money their bank owes them.

Going in Style feels like a television sitcom that's feature length, but in a good way. This film is meant to be a fun comedy starring talented actors and the film is good at doing that. The film has enough sweet scenes and enough fun scenes to be a good comedy film.

The Cast:

All 3 of the main actors are good in the film. Michael Caine gets the best storyline so he stands out as the best of the 3 leads, but the other 2 are good too. They work good as a fun comedy film trio. However the main scene stealer is Christopher Lloyd. Every scene that has Mr. Lloyd is funny. Mr. Lloyd plays a comedy relief character and he did a great job.

Actor Corlandos Scott
If you’re a parent with young children, then you’re always searching for quality movies your whole family can watch.

The new DVD/VOD release A Cowgirl’s Story stars Bailee Madison (from Good Witch fame) as Dusty Rhodes, a young teen living with her grandfather (the legendary Pat Boone) because her Army parents are fighting in the Afghanistan war. Dusty convinces her new friends to form an equestrian drill team to cope with her fear and helplessness that goes along with the territory.

Rising actor Corlandos Scott lends his support to the film as the local Detective, stepping into the storyline when the girls find themselves in trouble.

Parents might recognize this Alabama native from his appearance as a Union Solider on HBO’s Westworld; and horror fans will remember him as ‘Detective Loomis’ starring in the horror franchise films Hayride and Hayride 2.

Excited to now be part of this family friendly film, Corlandos Scott took time to answer a few questions:

Note: This review is dedicated to Peyo (the creator of The Smurfs) and to Bill Hanna and Joe Barbera (the creators The Smurfs animated show).

Smurfs The Lost Village is a animated film that's based on Peyo's Smurfs comics.

The Plot:

Smurfette feels like she's not a real smurf, because she doesn't seem to have a main personality trait and was made by Gargamel. She finds out about a place that has other smurfs. She, Hefty, Clumsy, and Brainy go check out the other smurfs, but Gargamel wants to steal the smurfs. It's up to Smurfette to discover who she is so she can defeat Gargamel.

The plot of this film is great. It's a inspring and cute film for children. The plot allows Smurfette to not have more clear personality traits. In fact she gets a better storyline than the other smurfs. It's not as complex as The Wind Rises, but it's pretty meaningful for a smurfs film. Gargamel's storyline of trying to get the smurfs makes the film more interesting and exciting.

I thought that since I did a list of movie that I love and are my favorites that I'd go a head and do a list of movies that I just thought were either boring or just plain bad. Now you may think they are great and that's fine but this is my opinion and I can't help that. There are going to be movies that I hate but that you may like.

1. Dark Shadows


Now don't get me wrong I am a huge Johnny Depp fan but I know that not every movie that he stars in I will enjoy. I really, really wanted to like this film. I saw the trailer to it and I thought it was funny. Well, a couple of years ago, I watched part of it but for some reason I turned it off when Barnabus (Johnny Depp) was getting high with some hippies. Anyways, just a couple of months ago, I saw it again from that scene and before it even got to the end I just went to my room as I had been watching it with my parents. I thought it was boring, Chloe Moretz and Johnny Depp had some funny lines but other than that, it made me run away cause it was just bad.

This my review of the Ghostbusters. Ghostbusters had 2 films in the 1980s' and the new film came out in 2016. It's time to find out which Ghostbuster film is the best and which Ghostbusters film is worth being busted by the ghostbusters.

1984 film review:

The first Ghostbusters film of often considered to be the best Ghostbusters film which is understandable. This is my favorite 1980s' film. It's aged well due to its' clever writing, good pacing, and entertaining cast. The film is a comedy, but it also has adventure and excitement.

The Ghostbusters are a good team. I like all 4 of the members. Bill Murray and Dan Aykroyd are the biggest stand outs, but Harold Ramis and Ernie Hudson are pretty good too. Rick Moranis is a good comedy relief. Out of the 3 Ghostbusters films this one has the best plot. Also it has the best climax thanks to the marshmallow antagonist. If you haven't watched this film yet I think that you should check it out.

So far there has been 2 live action films in Disney's live action film series adaption of Alice in Wonderland. In 2010 there was Alice in Wonderland and in 2016 there was Alice Through the Looking Glass. I'm hoping for a sequel.

Here's what I want in Alice 3

Tarrant Hightopp getting more screen time.

Tarrant is the Hatter. He's the most entertaining character in the franchise. He's already gotten plenty of screen time in the previous films, but more of him would be great.

I want Time to return.

Time seems like a 1 film type of character, but he's a fun character who I want to watch more of. I'm not sure how to make him a important character again, but I trust Linda Woolverton to know how to bring him back.

I want Hamish to be the main villain.

Making him a bad guy in Alice Through the Looking Glass was fun. I want him to get a bigger role as the main villain of Alice 3. It would be cool if he found out about Underland (Wonderland) and tried to rule it.

The Wind Rises is a anime film that came out in 2013. This film is a masterpiece, but several people haven't watched it. Here are 5 reasons of why you should check out this film.

1. The romance is the best.

I usually dislike romance films. However The Wind Rises has the best romance storyline that I've ever watched. The couple (Jiro Horikoshi and Naoko Satomi) are a loveable duo. Their romance is heartwarming, emotionally moving, interesting, and believable.

2. The characters are good.

It's nice and rare to have a film that has no boring characters. Every character in the film is easy to like. The main, supporting, and even minor characters are enjoyable people. Jiro's a likeable and interesting protagonist, Naoko's a sweetheart, Mr. Caproni is a awesome mentor, and the other characters are pretty good.

3. The American version has a awesome cast.

The American version has 1 of the best casts ever. This film has some amazing people including my favorite actress, Emily Blunt. The film has other great people: Stanley Tucci, Martin Short, and William H. Macy. There's not any bad performances in...

Am I excited about the 2017 My Little Pony film? Well I'm nervouscited for the upcoming My Little Pony film.

A major problem I have with the upcoming film is that it's not a Equestria Girls film. Because of that I'm worried that Twilight sparkle's friends will be protagonists. I think that Twilight's friends are weak protagonists, but decent supporting characters. I'm worried about Sunset Shimmer not being in the film. How can you have a good My Little Pony film without Sunset? I'm hoping that Celestia, Luna, the cutie mark crusaders, and Starlight Glimmer don't appear in the film. I hope that Discord has a role in the film. I'm hoping the new villain is cool.

It's cool that Emily Blunt's in the film. Emily's my favorite actress and I'm sure she'll do a great job. Plus having Twilight and Emily in the same film is awesome. However I'm indifferent to the other famous people that are in the upcoming film.

My Little Pony pretty much always has beautiful animation and awesome songs so I'm looking forward to the upcoming fim's visuals and songs.

It's time to discuss the greatest film series ever. The My Little Pony Equestria Girls has 4 films and it's time to review them all.

Equestria Girls review

Summary: Pony Twilight Sparkle goes to the human dimension to get her princess crown. She becomes friends with human versions of her friends and they team up to stop Sunset Shimer.

Review: My favorite Equestria Girls film. Twilight's my favorite character and this film lets her shine. The jokes about her being a human are hilarious. Her friends work better in this film, because they hog less screen time. All of the characters are decent or better, even Flash is a pretty good character. The film is cute, amusing, exciting, and tons of film. 10 out of 10!

Rainbow Rocks

Summary: Sunset Shimmer has stopped being a villain and is helping Twilight and her friends stop the new villains: the Dazzlings. The Dazzlings are taking over the school and it's up to Twilight and the others to stop the Dazzlings.

Ocean Waves is a romance anime film that was made by Studio Ghibli. Although it got really good reviews on Rotten Tomatoes some Studio Ghibli fans consider this film to be 1 of Studio Ghibli's weakest films. This review is about if I agree with the Studio Ghibli fans.

The Plot:

The film is about Taku, a young and nice guy. His best friend Yutaka. They get a new classmate named Rikako. Rikako is a impolite girl, but she's pretty which makes Yutaka get a crush on her. Taku doesn't like Rikako's harshness. However after spending some days together Taku cares about Rikako. Taku struggles to get along with the harsh, but somewhat likeable Rikako. Also Yutaka gets mad at Taku which puts their friendship at risk.

I usually don't like romance films, but this film is a good exception. This is 1 of Studio Ghibli's best written films. Not as masterful as When Marnie Was There, The Tale of the Princess Kaguya, and The Wind Rises, but the plot is good. The film did a good job at proving that looks are nice, but not the only important thing part of people. Taku doesn't love Rikako just for her looks. He loves her for who she is unlike Yutaka.

The Secret Life of Pets is a 2016 animated film that was made by the people that made Despicable Me. The film stars Louis C. K., Jenny Slate, Kevin Hart, and Albert Brooks.

The Plot:

Max is a dog who had a happy life with his owner Katie until Katie gets a second pet named Duke. Max and Duke start off as rivals who get lost from home, but eventually team up and try to get home. Gidget, a dog that has a crush on Max tries to find Max and a villainous bunny named Snowball is after Max.

The main plot of Max and Duke is okay, but Gidget's scenes are what make the film good. The subplot of Gidget is the film's best storyline and has the film's best scenes. The film combines cute stuff and comedy pretty well.

The Characters:

Max is pretty cool and well voiced by Louis C. K. and Duke is eh, but okay. Gidget is my favorite character. Gidget is adorable and makes the film better. Gidget is really well voiced by the very funny Jenny Slate. Snowball is my least favorite character. Kevin Hart is a decent actor, but he was annoying as Snowball. Snowball's a weak villain and his constant screaming is annoying. Pops and Chloe...

Masterminds is a 2016 comedy film. The film stars Zach Galifianakis, Kristen Wiig, and Owen Wilson. The film got mostly bad reviews which is normal for comedy films. The film is a adaption of real life events. I'm not joking.

The Plot:

David Ghantt (Zach Galifianakis) is a Loomis Fargo worker. Despite being engaged he has a crush on of his co-workers (Kristen Wiig). His crush has a greedy friend (Owen Wilson) who wants to rob Loomis Fargo. David robs Loomis Fargo and tries to get his crush to date him and avoid getting arrested.

The plot of this film is actually good. The plot is unique enough to be interesting. The plot is good enough to make this film entertaining. The plot is really good for most of the film. There's a subplot involving David dealing with a hit man that was kind of boring, but the rest of the plot is really good.

The Cast:

David is a weirdly likeable protagonist despite doing some bad stuff. Zach Galifianakis does a good job at playing David. David is a very funny guy. Kristen Wiig is pretty good as David's crush. Owen Wilson is very charming and entertaining as the main villain. Kate...

I watched The Lego Batman Movie. It's a 2017 animated film that's a spin off of The Lego Movie. Is this Batman film hilarious and heartwarming or is it a bad comedy film? Please read the review to find out.

Plot:

Batman (Bruce) is still sad about his parents being gone and because of that is a loner. Robin wants to be Batman's son. Also the Joker is putting Gotham City in danger. It's up to Batman to accept Robin as his son and stop the Joker.

The film has both silly and drama scenes. The drama of Batman dealing with his parents being gone and moving on to a new family is well done, but the comedy ruins this film. Batman is a immature goofball for most of this film. He's unlikeable until the climax and his jokes aren't that good. The Joker's plot is a excuse for a bunch of unfunny jokes that make Batman and Joker's rivalry feel like a romance.

Characters:

Until the climax Batman is obnoxious and not that likeable. He's too obnoxious to be a good protagonist. Robin and Alfred are okay. Batgirl is my favorite character, because she's quite cool. I wish the film was starred Batgirl instead of Batman. This film's...

Neighbors and Neighbors 2: Sorority Rising are comedy films that star Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron. The first film was released in 2014 and the second film came out in 2016.

Neighbors review

This film is about Mac and Kelly Radner, 2 parents who deal with a fraternity that lives next to them. The fraternity's leader is Teddy Sanders, a fun loving troublemaker. Mac and Kelly become rivals with Teddy and his friends which causes lots of silly antics.

This film is good. The film is enjoyably silly. Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne, and Zac Efron give good performances. The film is almost always entertaining. It's not a masterpiece, but it's a very entertaining comedy film that I recommend. Special mention goes to the scene where there's a Robert De Niro party which is so cool, because De Niro is awesome.

Neighbors 2 review

The Radner family deals with a sorority. The sorority is filled with females. Teddy helps the females at first, but he eventually teams up with the Radners to get rid of the sorority.

There are several good films that sadly didn't get that much money and got bad reviews. This list is about 5 good films that should be more popular.

5. Ted 2

Ted 2 got mixed reviews, but I consider Ted 2 to be Seth MacFarlane's best film. This film leaves out Mila Kunis' killjoy character so it's more fun than Ted 1. The film has plenty of funny jokes, good acting, and fun characters.

4. Mortdecai

Mortdeaci is a 2015 comedy film that stars Johnny Depp. This film lets Johnny Depp shine with goofy energy. This film really shows how much fun Johnny Depp is. He has excellent comedic acting. This film is 1 of Johnny Depp's best films.

3. Alice Through the Looking Glass

The 2016 Alice in Wonderland film. I really like it for the same reasons as the 2010 film, but this film benefits from having a better plot. The film is a cute friendship film between Alice and Tarrant. It has good characters, great acting, and impressive visuals.

Pokemon is a popular anime show. The show has various films. This review is about the original Pokemon film. The film is a classic to Pokemon fans, but was hated by critics.

The Plot:

Special mention goes to the 10 minutes that got edited out of most versions of this film. The scenes that got cut out involve Dr. Fuji's dark plot. He was trying to bring his deceased daughter Amber back to life. Amber eventually got cloned and became Mewtwo's best friend, but she died. These scenes are some of the most well made scenes of all time. It's weird that 2 characters that barley have screen time (Dr. Fuji and Amber) have a far better plot than any of the heroes of Pokemon. This film is the only film that got me to cry. Watching Dr. Fuji's marriage fail was tear worthy, but Amber's death is the saddest I've ever been at anything fictional. Overall these scenes are sad, but are fantastic.

After that the film has some good scenes including Mewtwo betraying Dr. Fuji and briefly working for Giovanni. However the film stops being good when the main plot comes. The plot is Ash trying to stop Mewtwo from getting rid of humans and Pokemon. It's frustrating...

When I was younger my favorite film series was the live action Alvin and the Chipmunks film series. Although I was a casual fan I became a obsessed fan later on. I loved this series for a few years, but in 2016 I realized that I wasn't a super big fan anymore. Recently I noticed that my reasons for loving these films were silly. Well here's my review of the films.

Alvin and the Chipmunks (2007)

The Plot: David Seville adopts the male chipmunks to save his career. David learns to consider them his family, but Ian Hawke wants to use the male chipmunks for money.

The Review: The plot is cute enough. Jason Lee and David Cross play the human characters goodly. However the chipmunks aren't that interesting and funny. Not that much happens in the first half of the film so the editing isn't that good. The film isn't terrible, but it's not great.

The Squeakquel

The Plot: David's cousin Toby takes care of the boy chipmunks. The boys go to high school and rival Ian's female chipmunks to help the school's music department.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Out of the Shadows is a 2016 action film. It's the sequel to the 2014 Turtles film. I was eager to watch this film, because it's the first turtles film to have Krang, but is this film good?

The Plot:

It's up to the 4 turtles along with April and Casey to stop Krang from taking over the world. Well there's more going on than that. Some of the side plots include: the turtles not getting along with each other and Casey trying to prove he can be a quality detective. Plus there's Krang's helpers.

The Krang storyline is cool despite the film focusing too much on Krang's helpers. The other story lines are boring. The film stops being interesting when it focuses on the turtles, April, and Casey. Overall the plot is kind of weak.

The Characters:

3 out of the 4 turtles are boring. Michelangelo is the only pretty good turtle, because he's funny. April O'Neil is boring and very poorly played by Megan Fox. Casey is also bland. Will Arnett is a fun comedy relief and Laura Linney is cool as the police boss.

Fifty Shades Darker may have also dropped the same day, but JWC2 is the more erotic of the two.
NO SPOILERS!!!

Daddy Keanu is back again to play my multi-dimensional baby John Wick! I've never squealed so hard for a sequel in my life.

First off, if you haven't seen the first John Wick, I strongly urge you to immediately because my review will mean nothing to you. When I first watched John Wick, I was blown away. One of the most pure action movies of the past decade, it was an extreme roller coaster ride of emotions from the very beginning. You cared about this man because he just lost his wife, then some thug steals his car and *gasp!* KILLS HIS DOG (which btw was the last gift his wife ever gave him). The entire world is shook when John's name is mentioned, even the grisliest of crime lords. A massive killing spree happens resulting in one of the greatest movies of our time, and ends on enough of a cliffhanger to leave you wanting more.



Enter in John Wick: Chapter 2, which starts off right from where the first movie ends. John finds his car and he proceeds to utterly destroy it by killing everyone who dares to try to stop him from taking it. This is just one of many (and I mean many) tense action...

Some films have memorable quotes that I always look forward to listening to. The following list honors the five film quotes that I love the most.

5. "Survival of the Fittest Leonard!" - Foodfight!

Said by: Mr. Clipboard

Although Foodfight! isn't a very good film I love Mr. Clipboard. He was delightfully eccentric. I love this quote, because of how amazingly odd Christopher Lloyd said it.

4. "You're mad, bonkers, but all the best people are." - the 2010 Alice in Wonderland film

Said by: Alice's dad, Alice

This quote is pretty much perfect for Alice in Wonderland. I love how it starts off seeming like a insult, but the quote turns out to be a compliment.

3. "It's okay to cry. Just know that I love you." - When Marnie Was There

Said by: Marnie

When Marnie Was There is 1 of the most emotionally impactful and heartwarming films ever made. That quote is so touching and I adore it.
