2020.09.01 20:59 thesndoubleop Finally watched Forgetting Sarah Marshall...
I’m sorry but I cannot understand how it gets as much praise as it does, especially on this sub. I’m a big fan of Jason Segel but this movie just felt aggressively mediocre from start to finish.
Since it wasn't all bad, I'll start with what I liked:
- Russell Brand. Saving grace of this movie for me. Had some really funny lines, great delivery, and overall just embodied the douchey, hedonic pop star really well.
- Some really solid side characters. Jonah Hill, Bill Hader, and Jack McBrayer all had funny moments and I liked a lot of the other hotel workers as well (bartender, luau guy, breakfast cocktail guy, etc.)
- Puppet rock opera scene. Fire.
What i didn't like:
- The plot was predictable. Oh the rock star rebound boyfriend is a slut? Sarah isnt gonna tour with him and have spindly legged fish net garbed babies? What the fuck! Who could have guessed? And woah! Sarah tries to get back with Peter, only for him to come clean and ruin his thing with Rachel? Shocker. As for the ending, I know we get to see Jason Segel naked but that doesn’t really take away from how predictable it is. It’s just trope plus penis and puppets. The whole thing is textbook romcom. As soon as Rachel is introduced the entire plot is laid out in front of you.
- I also had an issue with how heavy handed the symbolism was. Like the scene where Peter jumps in the water after Rachel, or when he’s arguing with Aldous and then gets mad and catches his first wave. That stuff was way too overt to feel powerful in terms of plot or character development. Have some subtlety.
- Mila Kunis. I really wanted to like her character. She was great in that 70s show but wow her performance in this was mediocre. Her dialogue with Jason felt corny and her character in general was unbelievably bland. I didn't think the whole “is she gonna go back to school” subplot was interesting. Also it’s not like there aren’t schools in Hawaii. If she wanted to pursue her education there she definitely could have. But instead she moves thousands of miles back to the mainland for a guy she knew for four days? Because he sent her a flyer for his rock opera? C’mon. Besides being hot this was overall a very forgettable performance for her.
- I'm sorry to say it, but Peter. Not a horrible character, and he had more personality than Rachel, but not one of Jason’s more likeable roles imo. Felt like a less interesting, more straight man/nice guy version of some of his other characters like Nick (freaks and geeks), Erik (undeclared), and Sydney (love you man).
- Unfortunately Paul Rudd's character was pretty average as well. It seems like he gets a lot of praise for this role but I didn't find him that funny (aside from the one “got any weed? Oh then let's go surfing” line). Don’t have a ton to say about him because it wasn’t a huge role but again, just a bit bland. And I’m usually a fan of his work.
Overall this was an exceptionally average movie with average characters, average acting, and an average plot. It had some redeemable qualities and made me laugh a few times but does not deserve anywhere close to the amount of praise it gets. I have preferred both Jason Segel and Mila Kunis in almost every other role I’ve seen them in. I’m probably gonna get hate for this but I really don’t understand why everyone is so attached to this movie. Am I missing something??
edit: did not double check about Apatow's involvement, he did not direct it.

I decided to come back since this generation topic is just so interesting. Anyways, this is my generation theory. This will be my take on how I view each generation, based on 8 year pure cohorts and 10 year spectrums. Some of you may have seen a similar post like this in the past, as this is a repost, since I deleted the original post, with added notable people, and percentages of each generation. For those of you who have never seen the original post, in my opinion, I feel generations aren’t very clear cut and don’t evolve overnight. I don’t think people who are 15-17 years apart will share the exact same generation traits. I believe in 8 year solid cohorts, where the years that make up the quintessential part of the generation can be found. For Baby Boomers, it’s 1950-1957, for Gen X, its 1968-1975, for Millennials it’s 1986-1993, and for Gen Z, its 2004-2011. Everything else in between is a spectrum transitioning from one generation to the next. With these spectrums, every year, traits from the previous generation start to die off and new traits start to form, which would help lay the foundation for the next generation. With that out of the way, let’s begin:
Soomer Spectrum 1940-1949 Classes of 1958-1967
Last cohort to have any Silent traits, and the first to have any Boomer traits. They entered elementary school after World War II. They were all born after the introduction of the television. The first half were born during World War II and the last four years were born during the Baby Boom. They primarily spent most of their elementary school years and childhood during the post-war boom of the late 40s to mid 50s. The first half were born during World War II and the last four years were born during the Baby Boom.

2020.09.01 09:04 youngbull316 If all generations were 18-19 years
Probably goes like this, based on how S&H and others grouped the generations:
Lost: 1890-1908 (parents to members of GI's and Silents; children to Progressives and Missionaries)
Older Lost: 1890-1895 (100% Lost, the "true" group, even though they are the older group numerically, based on S&H are grouped in the middle)
Famous people: Dwight D. Eisenhower, Colonel Sanders, Babe Ruth, Marjory Stoneman Douglas, etc.
Middle Lost: 1896-1902 (the numerical "core" of the Losts, but might have the first signs of any GI traits)
Famous people: Paul Robeson, Amelia Earhart, Walt Disney, Louis Armstrong, Charles Lindberg, Emma Morano, Duke Ellington, Al Capone, etc.
Younger Lost: 1903-1908 (still mostly Lost but have significant GI traits, to the point where at times might be the majority)
Famous people: Lyndon B. Johnson, Dr. Seuss, Lou Gehrig, etc.
GI's: 1909-1927 (parents to members of Silents and Baby Boomers, rarely Generation X; children to Missionaries and Losts)
Older GI's: 1909-1914 (barely have any Lost traits remaining, almost fully GI)
Famous people: Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Rosa Parks, Jesse Owens, Gerald Ford, Joe DiMaggio, etc.
Middle GI's: 1915-1921 (probably 100% GI and the absolute representation of the generation, still too early for any sign of Silent traits)

Millennials: 1984-2002 (parents to members of Generation Z/Homelanders and the post-Homeland Generation; children to the Baby Boomers and Generation X)
Older Millennials: 1984-1990 (the rise of Millennials, came of age right after 9/11, sometime in the 2000's, got to vote for either Bush, Obama, or both, and are probably the most liberal cohort of Millennials, compared to the middle and younger Millennials that possibly have a mix of liberals and conservatives, they have strong Millennial traits so while some of them have X traits, it is kinda weak compared to the Millennial traits that they have)

Older Homelanders: 2003-2008 (the rise of the Homelanders, are probably 100% Gen Z because they have very strong Gen Z traits but possibly still have some lingering Millennial traits, especially those in the very beginning; came of age during or after the Covid-19 pandemic, born during the Bush administration and after the establishment of Homeland security, which is the main reason for them being Homelanders, the oldest in K-12, being in middle and high school during the new CDC laws this new school year, and will not be able to vote until there is a brand new president in office come 2024 at the earliest)
Famous people: Jojo Siwa, Cash Baker, Matty B, Johnny Orlando, Sophia Grace Brownlee, Aidan Gallagher, Lizzy Greene, Olivia Rodrigo, Charli D'Amelio, Annie LeBlanc, Mackenzie Ziegler, Millie Bobby Brown, Noah Schnapp, Lauren Orlando, Grace VanderWaal, Ellie Zeiler, Lebron James Jr., Sky Katz, Casey Simpson, Francesca Capaldi, Sofia Wylie, Addison Riecke, Mace Coronel, EvanTubeHD, Honey Boo Boo, Ella Anderson, Isaac Ryan Brown, Gianna Bryant, Rosie McClelland, Ruby Rube, Barron Trump, McKenna Grace, Ava Kolker, Adelia Rose, Mason Ramsey, Trinitee Stokes, Ariana Greenblatt, August Maturo, Elias Harger, Malachi Barton, Jason Maybaum, Hayley LeBlanc, Mia Talerico, JillianTubeHD, etc.
Middle Homelanders: 2009-2014 (100% Homelander, the zeitgeist of the generation, too early to possess any new generation traits; born during the Obama administration, being the youngest group in K-12 during the coronavirus pandemic outbreak last school year, so they are the last to truly, vividly remember life before it but grow up mainly after it and will probably all start high school long after this is all over, some of the last to actually remember life before the 2016 election)
Famous people: Gavin Thomas, Christiano Ronaldo Jr., Riley Curry, Blue Ivy Carter, North West, etc.
Younger Homelanders: 2015-2021 (the caboose of Homelanders who are in-between Z and the next generation, having strong traits of the next generation while still primarily being apart of Gen Z; don't remember life before President Trump, and barely know life before the coronavirus, especially since none of them were yet in kindergarten preceding it, largely born during the tail end of the Obama and Trump administration)
Famous people: TBD (Too young to analyze)

I’ve read articles where it’s stated that many women are opting to remove their breast implants after problems with breast implant illness, some plastic surgeons have stopped performing breast augmentations altogether and are focusing on explanations (implant removals). I’ve also read that the trend is for smaller implants. It doesn’t seem worth doing at all after reading stories about breast implant illness. Also, these icons have been very successful with their small breasts.

2020.07.13 23:44 sorryimveryhigh Mila Kunis has been a Hollywood MK ultra slave since she was 14
Mila Kunis famously lied about her age when she was hired for that 70s show, she was actually about 14 when the show started. When you consider some of the themes, and that a lot of her scenes were of her making out with a fully grown Ashton Kutcher you’ve gotta wonder how that’s even legal.
Why was a 14 year old immigrant allowed to mingle with fully grown Hollywood adults?
Look at her name Mila Kunis, MK = MK ultra? She dated Macaulay Culkin and we all know what he thinks about pedophile celebs. My guess is like most Hollywood couples their pairing wasn’t an accident, they probably bonded because of shared trauma
Now Mila is married to Ashton Kutcher, a man who she made out with on film from ages 14-20, if that’s not grooming idk what is. Meanwhile Kutcher has spoken about publicly against human trafficking and the exploitation of children(either feeling guilty, or being used to push the ideas that actors care)
Also just a bonus Ashton Kutcher was in a movie called Butterfly Effect
🦋 MK = Mila Kunis

2020.06.23 17:03 autobuzzfeedbot 15 Actor Couples Who Enjoyed Each Other's Company So Much, They Worked Together
Link to article
- In How I Met Your Mother, Robin's insufferable co-star Sandy Rivers is played by Alyson Hannigan's husband.
- Gob's wife in Arrested Development was played by Will Arnett's real-life wife, Amy Poehler.
- And Will returned the favour a few years later by guest-starring as Leslie Knope's ~awful~ blind date in Parks and Rec.
- But they weren't the only off-screen couple on the show – Tammy II was played by Nick Offerman's wife of 17 years, Megan Mullalley.
- Nick and Megan obviously have great chemistry both on and off-air, because he guest-starred on Will and Grace twice, as two different characters!
- In Brooklyn Nine-Nine, the puzzle master that Jake gets jealous of is Melissa Fumero's actual husband.
- And Joe Lo Truglio's wife had a tiny cameo in the episode where his character, Charles, is planning his wedding.
- In the episode where Pam gives birth in The Office, the lactation consultant who touches her boobs is her real-life husband.
- And Carol, the real estate agent who dated Michael, is Steve Carell's actual wife, Nancy.
- We all know how this partnership ended, but back when they were a happy couple, Brad was a guest star on Friends, where he played the co-founder of the "I Hate Rachel Green Club".
- And Brad wasn't the only hubby to make a cameo on the show – Courteney's other half David Arquette made an appearance as Ursula's stalker.
- Back to How I Met Your Mother, where Lily's clingy ex Scooter was played by Neil Patrick Harris's off-screen husband.
- HIMYM is clearly a show that supports couples, because Cobie Smulder's husband also made a cameo as Marshall's work colleague.
- We all know that Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher met on That '70s Show, but she also had a guest role on Two and a Half Men.
- And finally, Mrs Browns Boys – where the on-screen daughter of Mrs Brown is the off-screen wife of the actor who plays her!

2020.05.30 21:23 tonnie_taller That ‘70s Show Almost Had A Bigger Love Triangle Subplot
Read more on WordPress https://ift.tt/3ch1Sxz
The original plan for Eric Forman, Donna Pinciotti, and Steven Hyde was a lot different when That ’70s Show
was still in early development, and it included an ongoing love triangle. The characters, played by Topher Grace
, Laura Prepon, and Danny Masterson, respectively, made up half of the young group at the center of the Fox period sitcom. They were joined by Michael Kelso (Ashton Kutcher), Jackie Burkhart (Mila Kunis), and Fez (Wilmer Valderrama) as the teens facing the trials and tribulations of growing up in small-town America during the ’70s.
As the group grew older, their love lives became a key focus. It was established early that Kelso and Jackie were together and that Eric had a major crush on his next-door neighbor, Donna. Unfortunately for Eric, Hyde also had feelings for Donna, which came into focus during _That ’70s Show_season 1. Over the course of that first installment, Hyde put himself out there to catch Donna’s attention. Not only did he learn to dance just for her, but he also tried to make a move which was met with a slap. In the end, Donna ended up with Eric and the two embarked on an off-and-on relationship
that lasted for the duration of the series — but the show almost went in another direction.

When _That ’70s Show_was still in the development phase, there were talks of having Eric and Hyde engage in an intense rivalry to fight for Donna’s affections. This would have kicked off a love triangle subplot lasting longer than the debut season. Instead, the writers decided to go in another direction for better character development. That didn’t stop the tease of the love triangle prospect, but considering the matchup between Eric and Donna in season 1, the notion was quickly pushed aside.
Though it was interesting to see Hyde wear his heart on his sleeve while interested in Donna, his home life became a more compelling focus of the series. Love triangles are often viewed as clichés and the same would have been said with two best friends vying for the same girl’s attention. Hyde made his move, but realized he and Donna were better off as friends. This opened the door for Eric and Donna’s complicated relationship to carry on as a subplot. It also allowed the series to focus on the issue that arose after Hyde’s parents abandoned him
. Rather than pin Eric and Hyde against each other, the Forman family welcomed Hyde with open arms.
Despite not giving Hyde an opportunity to date Donna, That ’70s Show
did reveal an alternate reality where the two ended up together. In the season 4 premiere, “It’s A Wonderful Life,” Eric envisioned how Hyde and Donna would have ended up together if his friend kissed her first. Hyde would have turned Donna into a rebel with piercings, tattoos, and clothes just like his. She would have also wound up raising their child alone since Eric believed Hyde could have ended up in jail. Of course, Eric was exaggerating when it came to that alternate reality but it was always made clear that Hyde and Donna were never a romantic match.

2020.05.24 23:09 finnagains Unexpected Movie Masterpieces to Watch in Quarantine - by David Sims (The Atlantic) 10 April 2020
Some were blasted by critics, some flopped at the box office, and all are ripe to attain cult-classic status.
With new cinema releases grinding to a halt in response to the spread of the coronavirus, I’ve used these weeks of self-quarantine to cast an eye backward over the cinematic canon, to rewatch old favorites, and to fill in viewing gaps. Now I’ve begun evaluating films that, for whatever reason, didn’t get a fair shake when they were released. Some were blasted by critics, and others simply made no impression at the box office; all of them are available to watch online, just waiting to become cult classics. The 30 films I’ve chosen as the most underrated are all from the past 25 years, and many belong to genres (rom-com, sci-fi, thriller) that are overlooked in serious critical circles. Some of my selections might seem obvious and others ludicrous, but all were made in the spirit of enjoyable debate and discovery.
the Box-Office Flops
Kino Lorber Archipelago (2010, directed by Joanna Hogg)
Joanna Hogg broke out in American art houses last year with her wonderful autobiographical work The Souvenir, but she’s been making terrific indie films for years. Archipelago might be her best. A quiet drama, it sees Edward (played by Tom Hiddleston, a year before Thor catapulted him to fame) gathering with his family on the remote British island of Tresco after quitting his job to travel the world. Many long-simmering tensions boil to the surface; Hiddleston (who is in most of Hogg’s movies) gives one of his best screen performances, and Hogg depicts subtle, polite infighting with humor and insight. No filmmaker has a better handle on the ridiculous foibles of the English upper-middle class.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Babe: Pig in the City (1998, directed by George Miller)
George Miller is the master of sequels. Each of his installments in the Mad Max series is innovative; his Happy Feet Two is quietly underrated. But he’s never made a follow-up as strange and beguiling as Babe: Pig in the City. Miller wrote and produced the first Babe, a charming, Oscar-winning success. In the director’s chair for part two, though, he turned the sweet fable of a pig who wanted to herd sheep into a grim fairy tale about life in the big city. The movie was a commercial disaster, but it’s a rewarding, beautifully designed work set in a fantasy city that mashes up landmarks from every modern metropolis. The plot, such as it is, follows Babe as he goes on a trip and mixes it up with more streetwise animal brethren (the director Noah Baumbach once said that the film’s closest thematic companion is Stanley Kubrick’s Eyes Wide Shut).
Watch it on: Hulu, HBO Beyond the Lights (2014, directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood)
A gorgeous romantic drama about the pain and pleasure of pop stardom, Gina Prince-Bythewood’s remarkable Beyond the Lights made little impression at the box office on release, despite a star-making turn from Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The actor plays a Rihanna-esque figure named Noni Jean who falls for a police officer (Nate Parker) and tries to escape the limelight. Prince-Bythewood, who also wrote and directed the incredible Love & Basketball, is one of only a few people in Hollywood still trying to film genuine love stories, and she deserves many more chances to do so on the big screen.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Cadillac Records (2008, directed by Darnell Martin)
The smartest music biopic from a decade full of them (including 2004’s Ray and 2005’s Walk the Line, to name a couple), Darnell Martin’s portrayal of the rise and fall of Chess Records was woefully underseen in 2008. The film digs into the exploitative dynamics at work in so many early rock-and-roll labels, examining the troubled relationships between Leonard Chess (Adrien Brody) and his biggest stars: Muddy Waters (Jeffrey Wright), Etta James (Beyoncé Knowles), and Howlin’ Wolf (Eamonn Walker). The film has a harder edge than its contemporaries, and the musical performances are particularly sensational.
Watch it on: Crackle
Cloud Atlas (2012, directed by Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski, and Tom Tykwer)
This is the most dizzyingly ambitious project in the Wachowski sisters’ expansive filmography. Adapting David Mitchell’s novel of the same name, Cloud Atlas encompasses six distinct stories, beginning with an 1849 naval adventure and zipping through the 1930s, the ’70s, and the present day before blasting to the clone-filled future of 2144 and ending in a postapocalyptic 2321. Members of the ensemble, including Tom Hanks, Halle Berry, Hugh Grant, and Doona Bae, play different characters in each story line, and the film jumps backward and forward through time to reveal surprising thematic links. As with many a Wachowski project, you have to make a few logical leaps to get on board, but if you can, there’s no movie experience like it.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime
20th Century Fox Film Corp. Down With Love (2003, directed by Peyton Reed)
This knowing throwback to the “no-sex sex comedies” of the late ’50s and ’60s (like the Doris Day–starring Pillow Talk and Lover Come Back) was too clever for its own good on release. But it’s a fabulous, entertaining, and singular creation, both celebrating and subverting the innuendo-filled rom-coms of yesteryear. An impeccably styled Renée Zellweger and Ewan McGregor star as lifestyle writers who form a friendly rivalry in 1960s New York. Sarah Paulson and David Hyde Pierce round out the cast, and Peyton Reed (who had just directed Bring It On in 2000) plays off the visual language of his source material in stylish, innovative, and cheeky ways. When you watch, be sure to stick around for the fantastic musical number over the closing credits.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Dredd (2012, directed by Pete Travis)
Perhaps the best comic-book movie of the past decade was Dredd, a gritty adaptation of the Judge Dredd series that was a financial flop on release. Set in a dictatorial future in which armored policemen are empowered to dispense lethal justice for almost any crime, the film takes place entirely within a colossal tower block, following Dredd (Karl Urban) and a new trainee as they do battle with a sadistic mob boss (Lena Headey). It’s a gruesome but smart movie, at once lionizing and satirizing the ruthless efficiency of its hero. The film was written and produced by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, Annihilation), who has since become one of the most exciting sci-fi directors working today.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Killing Them Softly (2012, directed by Andrew Dominik)
Killing Them Softly is Andrew Dominik’s brutal follow-up to his painterly revisionist Western, The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford. Also starring Brad Pitt, Killing Them Softly takes George V. Higgins’s hard-boiled ’70s crime novel Cogan’s Trade and updates it to the present day, following a mob robbery that goes wrong and the assassin (Pitt) hired to clean everything up. Dominik turns the web of competing criminal interests into a broad metaphor for the quagmire of the Iraq War. Killing Them Softly may have been too weird and slow for general audiences (it’s one of the few movies ever to earn an F on CinemaScore). But it’s bleakly funny and impressively acted by a cast that includes James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, and Ben Mendelsohn.
Watch it on: Netflix Kiss Kiss Bang Bang (2005, directed by Shane Black)
The film that put Robert Downey Jr. back on the map was critically praised but ignored at the box office in 2005. An extremely metatextual crime comedy, it follows a thief (Downey Jr.) pretending to be an actor who gets mixed up in a murder and goes on the lam with his acting coach, a private investigator (Val Kilmer). The story line is as complicated as it sounds, but the thrill of Shane Black’s film lies in his hilariously punchy dialogue and his skill at making the most convoluted plotting flow with ease. The movie reintroduced Downey Jr. as a leading man after he’d spent years struggling with addiction: He was hired to play Iron Man mostly on the strength of this performance.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Premium Rush (2012, directed by David Koepp)
David Koepp’s bike-messenger thriller is far more robust than that description might suggest. Set on New York’s crowded streets, it follows Wilee (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a deliveryman who picks up a package that’s tied to a criminal conspiracy; soon enough, he’s being chased around town by a crooked cop, Bobby Monday (Michael Shannon), who’s intent on taking him down. The story is told with unrelenting silliness, and Koepp translates Wilee’s brash confidence about weaving in and out of traffic into a visual roller-coaster ride. The highlight, though, is Shannon’s performance—he turns Monday into a living Looney Toon, gnashing his teeth and bulging out his eyes in fury with abandon.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Solaris (2002, directed by Steven Soderbergh)
Steven Soderbergh’s sci-fi opus was decried on release for daring to re-adapt a novel (by Stanisław Lem) that had already been turned into a film masterpiece (Andrei Tarkovsky’s sprawling 1972 work of the same name). But Soderbergh’s movie is a very different beast from Tarkovsky’s, stripping the story down to 99 minutes and focusing on the haunting romance at the center of the book. George Clooney plays Chris Kelvin, a psychologist haunted by the suicide of his wife, Rheya (Natascha McElhone). After hearing the mysterious distress signals sent out by a distant space station, he travels there—and finds Rheya, somehow re-created by the planet that the station is orbiting. The film includes stellar supporting performances by Viola Davis and Jeremy Davies, a beautifully understated score from Cliff Martinez, and some of the most compelling world-building in Soderbergh’s career.
Watch it on: Hulu
Sunshine (2007, directed by Danny Boyle)
This stunning space-mission drama from Danny Boyle and the screenwriter Alex Garland might be the Oscar-winning director’s best film. A wildly intense thriller about a last-gasp effort to restart the dying sun, Sunshine pits an outstanding cast (Cillian Murphy, Michelle Yeoh, Chris Evans, Rose Byrne, and more) against a monolithic enemy: the star at the center of our solar system, which Boyle depicts as an immovable, godlike force. As the voyagers’ ship gets closer to the sun, everything on board goes more and more haywire, and Boyle—who can depict the onset of madness better than almost anyone working—dials up the chaos.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Talk to Me (2007, directed By Kasi Lemmons)
Kasi Lemmons, whose most recent work is 2019’s Harriet, has long been one of Hollywood’s most criminally unheralded directors, and Talk to Me never got the wide audience it deserved in 2007. It’s a biopic of the controversial Washington, D.C., radio host Petey Greene (Don Cheadle) that’s unafraid to be messy, reflecting its subject’s surprising rise to fame as someone who fearlessly speaks his mind on the social and political issues of the 1970s. The film is grounded by excellent performances from Cheadle, Taraji P. Henson, and Chiwetel Ejiofor, who plays Greene’s put-upon manager, Dewey Hughes.
Watch it on: Hulu, Sling What If (2013, directed by Michael Dowse)
Also known as The F Word (its title was changed in America for obvious reasons), this extremely charming slow-burn rom-com was unfairly overlooked on release. It follows two people (Daniel Radcliffe and Zoe Kazan) who become friends but spend the entire time wondering if they’d be better off as lovers. Many relationship hijinks ensue, but the movie works because of the performances at its center, along with energetic supporting turns from Adam Driver and Mackenzie Davis, who were both on their way to bigger, franchise fame.
Watch it on: Prime The Yards (2000, directed by James Gray)
Back in 2000, James Gray’s operatic crime thriller was dumped unceremoniously into theaters by Harvey Weinstein and ignored by audiences. Like all the director’s films, though, it’s well worth viewing, combining hard-boiled storytelling with graceful visuals. Mark Wahlberg gives one of his best performances as Leo, an ex-con who returns to the fold of his shady New York family and gets tangled up in city corruption surrounding the subway system. A shifty Joaquin Phoenix plays Leo’s ne’er-do-well friend who is embroiled in a dramatic relationship with a young woman (Charlize Theron), while James Caan is suitably menacing as Leo’s morally dubious benefactor. The Yards also showed the first signs of Gray’s considerable talent; he’d go on to make We Own the Night, Two Lovers, The Lost City of Z, and Ad Astra.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime the critical bombs
Warner Bros. Addicted to Love (1997, directed by Griffin DUnne)
All of Griffin Dunne’s films (including the delightfully bizarre Practical Magic) deserve more appreciation, but Addicted to Love is a personal favorite of mine, a largely forgotten romantic comedy that satirizes gooey Hollywood storytelling tropes. It casts Meg Ryan and Matthew Broderick, two stalwarts of the rom-com genre, as a bitter pair united by a hatred of their respective exes, who are now dating each other. Ryan and Broderick spy on their former partners and, of course, eventually fall for each other, but the film never sacrifices its acidic tone, even as their relationship turns tender.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Armageddon (1998, directed by Michael Bay)
If nothing else, Armageddon is a crucial cultural artifact: a portent of American culture’s jingoism in the 2000s, when blockbuster action sequences had the tone and tenor of Budweiser commercials. Where Michael Bay’s prior film, The Rock (which is much better regarded), had tapped into the U.S. military’s dysfunction and despondency post-Vietnam, Armageddon sees the country uniting to obliterate an evil asteroid by turning to … the oil industry. (It also spends a good chunk of time mocking post-Soviet Russia.) Despite the ridiculous plotting and Bay’s frenetic editing of every set piece, Armageddon is the clearest distillation of his macho brand of propaganda, designed to have audiences cheering by the end (against their better judgment). Listen to Ben Affleck’s gleeful commentary to triple the entertainment factor.
Watch it on: Hulu, HBO Blackhat (2015, directed by Michael Mann)
Five years ago, one of the great contemporary directors still working made a globe-trotting cyber thriller starring Thor himself and was completely ignored. Booed by critics and dumped by its studio into the doldrums of January, Blackhat made only a shocking $8 million at the domestic box office. Yet it’s a terrific entry in Michael Mann’s esteemed body of work (which includes other movies, such as Heat, Miami Vice, and Manhunter, that were underrated in their day). Chris Hemsworth plays a hard-bodied hacker who’s released from prison to battle a shadowy online terrorist; like many of Mann’s later films, Blackhat is a story of the analog world’s struggle to confront its digital future, wrapped up in a very masculine action saga. If you can, try to catch the director’s cut, which cleans up some of the film’s dense plotting and airs regularly on FX.
Watch it on: FX The Box (2009, directed by Richard Kelly)
This is the third film directed by Richard Kelly, a onetime wunderkind who burst onto the scene with the 2001 cult hit Donnie Darko. The Box is also his best, though few have recognized it as such. It was a bomb on release, getting poor reviews and the rare dishonor of an F from CinemaScore. But its wild ambition is second to none, spinning Richard Matheson’s mordant short story “Button, Button” into a paranoid 1970s epic—part domestic drama, part psychological horror, part sci-fi fantasy revolving around a NASA expedition to Mars and magic portals. This movie has short, simple scares that I’ve never forgotten, and a plot convoluted enough to obsess over forever. I live in hope of a fourth film from Kelly.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Constantine (2005, directed by Francis Lawrence)
Fifteen years after its release, this remains one of the best and cleverest comic-book adaptations ever made, and probably the most underrated entry in Keanu Reeves’s cinematic career. This is a horror thriller that dives into biblical fantasy, casting a varied ensemble (Tilda Swinton, Djimon Hounsou, Gavin Rossdale, and Shia LaBeouf) as various angels and demons doing battle in modern-day Los Angeles. Based on Alan Moore’s Vertigo comic Hellblazer, Constantine junks a lot of the established hallmarks of the character John Constantine (he’s supposed to be a witty Brit who looks like Sting), but that doesn’t matter. Reeves’s laconic style is a perfect fit for the cynical antihero, and Rachel Weisz thrives in twin roles as sisters on either side of an infernal crime that Constantine is called to investigate.
Watch it on: DC Universe The Counselor (2013, directed by Ridley Scott)
Of the seven films made by Ridley Scott in the past decade, none is more critically reviled than The Counselor, a knotty crime drama written by Cormac McCarthy and featuring an all-star ensemble that includes Brad Pitt, Javier Bardem, Michael Fassbender, Penélope Cruz, and Cameron Diaz. Summarizing its noir-ish plot, which revolves around the Juárez, Mexico, drug trade, is impossible, but the film is worth watching simply because there’s nothing like it. McCarthy’s florid dialogue and Scott’s hazy visuals are bewitching, and every actor gives an energetic performance pushed to ridiculous heights (one scene in particular, involving Diaz and a Ferrari, is hypnotically baffling). The Counselor is a dark acquired taste, but a deeply satisfying one.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Universal pictures The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift (2006, directed by Justin Lin)
After the success of the first Fast and the Furious movie, in 2001, Vin Diesel’s car-racing franchise struggled to stand out until 2009, when its original cast returned under Justin Lin’s direction for the surprise smash Fast & Furious. But the groundwork for that revitalization had been laid three years earlier with Tokyo Drift, Lin’s debut film in the series. Though Tokyo Drift introduces Sung Kang as the fan-favorite character Han, none of the series’s other beloved characters appears. Yet Lin’s skill with crisp action and quick-paced banter—built up in his fantastic breakthrough, Better Luck Tomorrow, which also starred Kang—makes this one of the best in the franchise.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Hulk (2003, directed by Ang Lee)
Coming off the resounding success of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, Ang Lee could’ve made any film he wanted. He picked an adaptation of Marvel Comics’ most tortured star, the Hulk (Eric Bana). At the time, the movie was seen as odd, mocked for its wobbly CGI, and suffered one of the largest box-office drops in history for a blockbuster after its opening weekend. Viewed now, given the cookie-cutter format of contemporary superhero movies, it’s a startling experience. Lee turns his film into a living comic book, zooming in and out of boxy frames and inventing a visual language that could’ve become an exciting norm for the medium. The story, which sees the Hulk doing Freudian battle with his demonic father (Nick Nolte) and unearthing dark family secrets, is bizarre, and thrillingly so.
Watch it on: Starz In the Cut (2003, directed by Jane Campion)
Every film Jane Campion has directed since her Oscar-winning The Piano (1993) is underrated and underseen, but In the Cut was perhaps her biggest flop on release. That was partly because it subverted Meg Ryan’s usual bubbly onscreen persona, casting her as Frannie Avery, an introverted English teacher who starts dating the detective (Mark Ruffalo) investigating a murder case in her apartment building. It’s a sweaty, grisly, and sexually charged thriller that swerves from strange comedy to gory horror from scene to scene. But that tonal whiplash is one of Campion’s smartest storytelling tools, properly rattling viewers and plunging them into Frannie’s mixed-up headspace.
Watch it on: Crackle Jennifer’s Body (2009, directed by Karyn Kusama)
This is the movie that landed Karyn Kusama in “movie jail” for almost a decade: a gleefully bloody teen-horror comedy that was undone by the high expectations for its script. The writer, Diablo Cody, had won an Oscar the previous year for her Juno screenplay, and though this follow-up had that film’s humor, its intense gore and flippant humor were too much for critics at the time. Fortunately, Jennifer’s Body is already being reevaluated as a trashy classic, a nastier update of movies like Heathers that turns the social competition of high school into a literal bloodbath. Kusama has also reemerged as a filmmaker, with the excellent indie horror The Invitation.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Universal pictures Josie and the Pussycats (2001, directed by Harry Elfont and Deborah Kaplan)
This knowing revival of the Archie Comics series was a failure on release, but has deservedly attracted a cult following in the years since. It’s a pitch-perfect parody of the manufactured pop pipeline in the early 2000s, watching as the chipper rock band comprising Josie (Rachael Leigh Cook), Melody (Tara Reid), and Valerie (Rosario Dawson) is run through the major-label mill. Parker Posey and Alan Cumming play perfect corporate villains, and almost every scene is suffused with ostentatious subliminal advertising, with au courant brand names crowding the frame. It’s a bitingly clever work, with a great power-pop soundtrack that includes contributions from the late Adam Schlesinger.
Watch it on: Hulu with Cinemax, Xfinity Jupiter Ascending (2015, directed by Lana Wachowski and Lilly Wachowski)
In the 2010s, blockbuster studio filmmaking made a hard pivot to existing intellectual property for its biggest movies: Star Wars, comic books, anything audiences might have nostalgia for. The Wachowskis, as they often do, went their own route. After giving cinema one of its greatest franchises in 1999 with The Matrix, the duo took a different direction in 2015 with a loopily operatic sci-fi epic rooted in nothing but their own imaginations. They were pilloried by critics. Jupiter Ascending is a wonderfully absurd space fairy tale starring Channing Tatum as a dog-man, Eddie Redmayne as an immortal arch-capitalist villain, and Mila Kunis as a secret princess who unwittingly owns the property deeds to our solar system. If you can get on this movie’s wavelength, you’ll find much to enjoy in its many flights of fancy.
Watch it on: Netflix
Non-Stop (2014, directed by Jaume Collet-Serra)
Since the surprise success of Taken in 2008, Liam Neeson has played a broken-down man forced to take the law into his own hands in countless mid-budget action dramas: Unknown, Cold Pursuit, The Commuter, Run All Night, and many more. Non-Stop is easily the best of them, partly thanks to Jaume Collet-Serra, a Spanish director who is one of the finest purveyors of modern pulp cinema (along with many Neeson movies, his other credits include The Shallows and Orphan). Set entirely on an airplane flying from New York to London, Non-Stop follows an alcoholic air marshal who gets caught in a deadly battle when a terrorist starts texting him. Perfectly befitting its setting, this thriller has the plot of the best kind of airplane paperback, with just the right number of twists and turns.
Watch it on: Sling Ocean’s Twelve (2004, directed by Steven Soderbergh)
Despite coasting to box-office success, Ocean’s Twelve was disliked on release for swerving in the opposite direction from the über-cool Ocean’s Eleven. Critics dismissed it as overindulgent, pretentious, and ultimately pointless: The heist plot is nigh-impossible to understand, most of the crucial exposition is entirely absent, and there’s a subplot in which the character played by Julia Roberts pretends to be the real Julia Roberts. In hindsight, though, the film is a perfect deconstruction of sequel logic, showing the difficulty of finding new directions for a beloved cast of characters. Where Ocean’s Eleven was all smooth style, Ocean’s Twelve is a knowing subversion that lays bare the ridiculous fallacy of movie-star charm. It also happens to be very, very funny.
Watch it on: Vudu, Prime Pain & Gain (2013, directed by Michael Bay)
Practically every Bay film has been dismissed by reviewers on release, and often for good reason. His high-octane storytelling style makes the simplest scenes of dialogue utterly hyperactive, and most of his recent efforts are about talking robot toys. But Pain & Gain was a sly departure for this director, a low-budget (by his standards) crime comedy that feels like a Coen Brothers movie on growth hormones. Based on a true story, Pain & Gain is about three bodybuilders (played by Mark Wahlberg, Dwayne Johnson, and Anthony Mackie) who embark on a harebrained kidnapping scheme for easy money; naturally, things quickly go awry. Bay doesn’t abandon his trademark energy, but instead deploys it as satire—these characters might think they’re in a flashy action movie, but their circumstances are far more mundane and depressing.

2020.05.01 16:01 tc182 TIL in 1998 Mila Kunis was cast in the FOX sitcom That '70s Show. All who auditioned were required to be at least 18 years old; Kunis, who was 14 at the time, told the casting directors she would be 18 but did not say when. She played in all 200 episodes of the show.
2020.04.13 02:06 Kisaaa Easter eggs: Show/Movie references
It’s an unpopular opinion but I enjoyed the show a lot more after Charlie sheen left and Ashton Kutcher came in (also prob doesn’t help he’s my main mans).
However, what really got me in the last few seasons was the random references to other shows or movies the characters were in etc
As an example, Mila Kunis referencing that 70s show of Ashton Kutcher referencing dude where’s my car but my ultimate fav:
When Walden (ashton) comes down the stairs after a wild party and says “this looks like Charlie sheen’s house” 😂
Feel free to post your fav references or one liners 👏🏼

2020.04.03 20:12 Ex__ Quarantainment Suggestion: Movies that take place in Los Angeles
EDIT: If something is missing, check the edits first.
Hello all! I don't know about the rest of this town, but I sure do enjoy movies. In this post I'm going to share a list of movies that:
A.) Are watchable, possibly even entertaining.
B.) Take place in Los Angeles. Some may simply have just a scene or two in Los Angeles whereas others are fully written for a Los Angeles setting. Some may even be fictional locations that were neverless filmed in and highly resemble the Los Angeles area.
Most of these are mainstream movies so no real gems in this list, but I encourage others to contribute in the comments. I realize that not everyone has watched everything, so I'll provide insight that assumes you haven't seen the film yet.
Movies that take place in a non-fictional Los Angeles setting
- Double Indemnity (1944) - Takes place in DTLA, the golden standard of noir, required watching IMO. Also, a great film to reference to trick people into thinking you have in-depth knowledge of cinema; trust me, I do it all the time.
- Sunset Boulevard (1950) - Takes place in Hollywood (duh), another noir classic with some gallows humor, required watching.
- Rebel Without a Cause (1955) - Generally takes place and was filmed in Westside, the quintessential James Dean flick, required watching.
- Beverly Hills Cop (1984) - Film opens in Detroit, but Acts II and III of the plot largely takes place in Beverly Hills. Vintage Eddie Murphy movie, probably the only movie in this franchise worth watching IMO. Has a 4k release.
- The Terminator (1984) - Film takes place all over Los Angeles. Great James Cameron flick, probably his best. Has a great melding of horror, action, and scifi. Also has a very welcome lack of John Connor and plenty of naked muscle mens for the guys and gals who like that.
- Die Hard (1988) - Takes place in Century City at the Fox Plaza (has a fictional name in the movie). This and Die Hard 3 are the only ones worth watching IMO, especially since Die Hard 3 had McTiernan return to direct. Excellent action film, probably one of the more intelligently written films of that genre you'll find. Has a 4K release
- Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure (1989) - Takes place in San Dimas, in the San Gabriel Valley. Early Keanu vehicle, has a cameo by George Carlin, a sick ass montage with Extreme's Play With Me, and is a good time to watch. This is a fairly distilled 80s film with all the 80s tropes, but still holds up IMO. Good thing to watch if you're planning on catching the sequel later this year.
- Pretty Woman (1990) - Takes place in Hollywood and Beverly Hills. A classic romcom rags to ritches film, it was a indication of shifting attitude sin filmmaking due to the romantic female lead being a bona fide prostitute. Stars Julia Roberts, Richard Gere, and presumably, Richard Gere's hamster, although uncredited. Solid flick and features a badass chick ballad "It Must Have Been Love" by Roxette.
- Boyz N The Hood (1991) - Takes place in South Central. John Singleton's (RIP) magnum opus. Themes are centered around fatherhood, institutional racism, and gang culture. A very early example of when Cuba Gooding Jr. was tolerated on screen and when rappers were starting to take prominent feature film roles. Great cast all around, including Laurence Fishbourne and the very lovely Angela Bassett. Required watching.
- Terminator 2: Judgement Day (1991) - Takes place all over Los Angeles. For better of for worse, this film changed cinema forever with its extensive and innovative use of CG. Another stellar cast, one of the most celebrated action films of all time, and that is in spite of the unfortunate presence of John Connor. I should tell you now, after you watch this one, you should know that the franchise ends here. There are no more films in the franchise, and there's no need to Google that, just take my word for it. Anything you see that suggests otherwise is just a deep state conspiracy designed to trick you. Has a 4K release that has a contentious reputation.
- Bill & Ted's Bogus Journey (1991) - Takes place in San Dimas again. This film is honestly garbage. The plot is even more non sensical than before although Death is very funny. Has a cameo by hot Pam Grier and Primus performing Tommy the Cat. Worth a watch to prep for the sequel at least.
- Resevoir Dogs (1992) - Takes place in Eagle Rock. The breakout film of our Blessed Lord and Savior Quentin Tarantino, praise be to him. This is the movie with the scene that gets parodied a lot, the scene where MR. White tortures the cop to the tune of "Stuck in the Middle with You". It was ridiculously well cast and has the trademark Tarantino dialogue and semi non-linear storytelling. It has some misteps in the shooting and acting of some of the scenes, but was one of the most successful independent films of all time, and was able to briefly convince the world that Michael Madsen could act.
- South Central (1992) - Takes place in South Central, of course. Another afro-centric film set in South Central that has fatherhood as a central theme, along with gang, drug, and prison culture. Great film all around, with some complex character writing. An Olver Stone produced film that has Glenn Plummer starring. It actually holds a 100% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, although with only 6 reviews, albeit one of which is the main man Roger Ebert.
- Menace II Society (1993) - Takes place in South Central. The antithesis to Boyz N The Hood. If the central theme to Boyz N The Hood is to show the role a strong father figure plays in the upbringing of a boy in the hood (!), this film shows an outcome where said father figure is not present. It also portrays the protagonist as a morally grey character, which is refreshing. You pity him, but also don't make excuses for him. Stars a young Larenz Tate and Jada Pinkett-Smith, along with MC Eiht (Rapper, also voiced Ryder in GTA: San Andreas).
- Pulp Fiction (1994) - Takes place all over Los Angeles. The magnum opus of our Blessed Lord and Savior Quentin Tarantino, praise be to him. Simply put, you are not allowed to live in this town if you haven't seen this movie. A master class in neo-noir. I cannot sing its praises enough, and honestly, I don't have to. Y'all mtherfuckers undoubtedly already know what's up. Required watching. Has a 4K release.
- Friday (1995) - Takes place in South Central. This film is, arguably, one of the best comedies of all time in my opinion, and I will die on that hill. The humor ebbs and flows with a supreme organic quality. There is likely never a joke in this film that isn't going to make you laugh. Huge cult following, a breakout film for Chris Tucker back when he was worth a damn, and definitely Ice Cube's best work. Required watching.
- Clueless (1995) - Takes place in Beverly Hills. Stars Alicia Silverstone and Stacey Dash before she absolutely lost her fucking mind. Fellas take note, this is a good one to add to your repetoire to score some points, as well as broaden your horizons. Has a solid cult following as well.
- Heat (1995) - Takes place all over Los Angeles. This film was highly anticipated due to it being the first time Al Pacino and Robert De Niro appear on screen together and it didn't disappoint. Also has Val Kilmer and Jon Voight, as well as a young Natalie Portman. This film was criminally snubbed by the Academy, one of the more wretched sins they've committed. The action sequences are well choreographed and in particular, the sound editing and the gun choreography are superb (they actually use the sights when aiming). Heavy recommend if you have a home theater AV set up. Has a 4K release.
- Swingers (1996) - Takes place in Hollywood, although a large part of Act I goes to Vegas. Breakout film for Jon Favreau, Vince Vaughn, and Ron Livingston (main character of Office Space). A guy film if there ever was one. A great one to watch after a breakup or if you're jaded from dating in Los Angeles in general or if you're prepping for a weekend excursion to Vegas. Also a great Unintentional Period Piece for the 90s (yeah I linked to TV Tropes, fuck your schedule). Required watching for the fellas.
- Jerry Maguire (1996) - Takes place in both Los Angeles and Arizona although primarily L.A. A solemn reminder why Tom Cruise still has a net worth. I want to hate him so much, but I unfortunately can't, thanks to this film. Also stars Cuba Gooding Jr, Regina Kind, and Renee Zellweger. Solid flick despite some cliche.
- L.A. Confidential (1997) - Takes place in Los Angeles, promintently in Hollywood. A significant accomplishment, a ridiculous ensemble cast that included 90s Kevin Spacey, Guy Pearce, Russell Crowe, Kim Basinger, Danny DeVito, and more, this film got nominated for a ton of awards, although it lost most of them to gross ass Titanic. Required watching.
- Liar Liar (1997) - Takes place Los Angeles, mainly DTLA. Personally, I think this film is the best example of Jim Carrey's style of humor done RIGHT. In his other films, his over the top acting just comes off as grating after a while, but in this film it doesn't really get old. It's also one of the first films where he did more than just his usual slapstick and physical comedy and actually applied his acting ability with emotional depth. Film's humor still holds up and is a great and easy watch.
- Boggie Nights (1997) - Takes place in the San Fernando Valley, aka the Porn Capital, and is very fitting for the movie's subject matter. Another stellar 90s film that broke a ton of rules and has it's own style. Huge ensemble cast including Mark Wahlberg, Burt Reynolds, Julianne Moore, Heather Graham (why is she so perfect?), Don Cheadle, Philip Seymour Hoffman, William Macy, John C. Reily, and MORE.
- Jackie Brown (1997) - Takes place all over Los Angeles, mostly South Bay. The first film made by our Blessed Lord and Savior Quentin Tarantino, praise be to him that features a linear storyline. Was conceived as an homage to blaxpoitation films of the 70s and very fittingly stars Pam Grier, the star of Foxy Brown. It has another ensemble cast of Samuel L Jackson, Robert De Niro (playing against type), Michael Keaton, Bridget Fonda, and more. Not groundbreaking work, but very solid film.
- Rush Hour (1998) - Takes place all over Los Angeles. The first of the trilogy and the only one worth watching. This is back when Tucker still had something to offer on screen. Was a farily fresh take on the buddy cop dramedy formula that was undoubetedly stale by the time this movie came out. Has some good Jackie Chan stunts and good laughs. The scene where Chan and Tucker bridge their cultural gap is actually fairly endearing. Soundtrack was also fire, I had it on cassette back in the day. Franchise stops here though.
- American History X (1998) - Takes place in Los Angeles, mainly Venice Beach. If there was ever a film for required watching in these turbulent times, its this one. Story is about a reformed white supremacist and details the process of how misguided youths are indoctrinated to racist ideology as well as how institutional racism effects and stokes racial tensions. Also a story about the folly of vengeance. Superb acting by Edward Norton and I mean it, he's a real bastard in this one. Absolutely required watching.
- Memento (2000) - Takes place all over Los Angeles. Early Christopher Nolan film and as you can imagine, has been incredibly well received and has received widespread acclaim and an outstanding legacy. Go watch this shit if you haven't already. You will see the early markers of Nolan's cerebral signature style that went to make Inception.
- Baby Boy (2001) - Takes place in South Central. Another afro-centric film by John Singlteton, this film is a commentary on the negative aspects of contemporary black culture that are perceived to be limiting or holding back the development and betterment of black men. And before any reactionaries out there have something to say, it has nothing to do with racism. Stars Tyrese Gibson in the lead, although it was originally conceived for Tupac before he died. Also has Taraji P Henson, Snoop Dogg, and Monique, among others.
- Training Day (2001) - Takes place in South Central and Watts. The film that finally got Denezl Washington his Oscar after the Malcom X and Philadelphia snubs. Also stars Ethan Hawke, but who really cares? Has cameos by Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre as well, and a few other names you'll recognize. Great film, largely based on the Rampart scandal of the 90s. Plot is ok, but Denzel absolutely nails this movie.
- The Italian Job (2003) - Takes place in Los Angeles, most prominently in Hollywood. This movie is honestly pretty dumb. The cast is not bad at all, with Charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg, Mos Def, Jason Statham, Seth Greene, Edward Norton, and a couple other names. Theron and Norton put up the best performances, but it doesn't matter because the way the plot progresses is dumb as all hell. The most egregious of this is a split between Seth Greene's implausible hacking exploits and literally everything that has to do with that mechanic character. The reason why its even on this list is that despite the lackluster plot and acting, the film is pretty to look at and has some good shoots and action sequences. It's basically visual junk food.
- Crash (2004) - Takes place all over Los Angeles. Another drama with an ensemble cast with a uniqe style, great writing, well shot, well acted, and has a well deserved legacy, contentious as it is.
- The 40-Year-Old Virgin (2005) - Takes place in the San Fernando Valley, mainly Encino. Judd Apatow's breakout film, and IMO his best tied with Bridesmaids. Excellent humor that still holds up and features excellent acting by Steve Carrell. Manages to avoid some of the cliche of this style of comedy, such as in how Trish was written to be more than a typical love interest and how other characters were generally more complex and flawed. Also, a solid period piece for the mid 2000s.
- Knocked Up (2007) - Takes place all over Los Angeles. A very respectable followup to Judd Apatow's follow to The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Stars Seth Rogen as the lead with Katherine Heigl, it definitely still holds up. Leslie Mann and Paul Rudd are also brought back who later went on to star in a spin-off movie of their own that I haven't bothered to see because my sixth sense told me it was bad (I heard Megan Fox was in it). Very funny, although it being a romcom, we knew Rogen was getting the girl, so it suffers from being a bit formulaic.
- Superbad (2007) - Takes place in Westside. The quintessential teen movie of my generation and a perennial beloved favorite fo the genre. Stars Michael Cera and Jonah Hill and introuced Christopher Mintz-Plasse to audiences at large. I loved how unlike the John Huges era of teen movies where teens where always a part of some watered down idyllic suburbia, Superbad managed to show exactly the kind of shit tons of teenagers were really getting up to. Partying, sex, substance consumption, hormones, and the like. Obviously teenage millennials aren't a monolith, but I stand by this perspective. Required watching.
- Iron Man (2008) - Act II and III takes place in Los Angeles, mainly Westside and South Bay. Yes, the first one was in Los Angeles, although the setting was not at a focal point of the plot. Anyway, this is the film we all know and love (or hate) for spawning the MCU. Surprsingly enough, it still holds up.
- Blood and Bone (2009) - Takes place in South Central I think. This is a direct-to-DVD movie that is a guilty pleasure of mine and a cult classic. It stars Michael Jai White and Eamonn Walker (Said from Oz). Also has some appearances by a handful of MMA fighters, most promintently Bob Sapp. It's basically an ego piece for Michael Jai White. The plot is dumb and formulaic, the acting is cheesy, the score sucks, and the dialogue shallow and stilted. So why do I like this movie? The fight scenes, plain and simple. Seeing that big MF Michael Jai White destroy MFs is pretty fun to watch. Again, it's visual junk food.
- Black Dynamite (2009) - Takes place in Los Angeles. A well known parody, homage, and love letter to 70s blaxpoitation films, this one also stars Michael Jai White although in a much better role and far better written movie. Has tons of cameos by tons of comedians, most notably Cedric Yarbough who upstages them all. This movie is like Arrested Development turned up to 11 in that there are so many inside jokes, easter eggs, and references that it will take several watches to catch them all. The word "parody" is thrown around these days with absolute reckless abandon, so if you're confused on the concept, this movie should clear things up for you. Required watching.
- End of Watch (2012) - Takes place in South Central. A gritty cop drama presented as a fictional documentary, this one stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena. It tackles the themes of gangs and cartel violence. It's notable in that it doesn't focus on police corruption at all and instead shows the honorable and upstanding side of the police. A solid police procedural if you're tired of the gritty corrupt cop drama.
- Stretch (2014) - Takes place all over Los Angeles. Stars Patrick Wilson as the lead, with supporting roles by Chris Pine, Jessica Alba, and Ed Helms. Also has hilarious cameos from Ray Liotta and David Hasselhoff. An underrated comedy that I'm sure will reach cult status someday, it's a distilled contemporary Los Angeles adventure in a noir presentation and is a good watch.
- Nightcrawler (2014) - Takes place all over Los Angeles. Stars Jake Gyllenhaal. Movie is a commentary on MSM sensationalism and is worth every minute to watch. Got tons of awards including an Academy nomination.
- Dope (2015) - Takes place in Inglewood and Ladera Heights. Despite the R rating, it can be considered a teen movie for the Gen Zs and is definitely a coming of age film. It's actually really well written and has a great style to it. Stars Shameik Moore as the lead and Forrest Whitaker as the narrator with some other names peppered in, the plot is about a high school senior finding his identity while navigating his way out of a situation involving drug dealers. Heavily features 90s rap culture and referneces, so A+ for me.
- The Nice Guys (2016) - Takes place in Los Angeles. A solid buddy cop dramedy, which avoids the cliches with great writing and acting, courtesy of Ryan Gosling and Russell Crowe. Guaranteed future cult classic.
- Once Upon a Time in Hollywood (2019) - Takes place in Hollywood and parts of the Valley. Yet another solid offering from our Blessed Lord and Savior Quentin Tarantino, praise be to him. This is another one of his alternate history films, this time deling with the Manson family. The film is lead by Leonardo DiCaprio and Brad Pitt, with appearances from Kurt Russell, Al Pacino, Margot Robbie, and TONS of other names. Film has its controversies, no doubt levied by those who would rather walk in the shadow of our Blessed Lord and Savior Quentin Tarantino, praise be to him, than his light. A fun watch if you don't take the film too seriously.
Movies that partially take place in Los Angeles
- The Godfather (1972) - This film has a scene in the first act where Tom Hagen flies out to Hollywood in order to beseech Jack Woltz to give up the movie role for Johnny Fontane. The shots of old Hollywood are ddefinitely a treat to look at. I'm not even going to wast electricity singing this film's praises. I'm of the opinion that if you don't like this film, you are likely descended from a weak bloodline and actively holding the human race back with your undoubtedly meager existence. Don't @ me though.
- The Usual Suspects (1995) - Has the scene with the attempted assasination of Kobayashi set in L.A. and the raid on the boat in San Pedro. The film that beat out Heat in 1995, this film has 90s Kevin Spacey and is praised for it's writing, pacing, and famous twist, as well as several iconic scenes. Even manages to make a lesser Baldwin brother watchable.
- Kill Bill: Volume 1 (2003) - Act I takes place in Pasadena, where The Bride encounters Vernita Green. This is an film brought to us by our Blessed Lord and Savior Quentin Tarantino, praise be to him. Has significant amounts of trademark Tarantino style and pays homage to several genres, as Tarantino is wont to do. Has a dope ass anime sequence leading into Act III, which definitely helped further accelerate maintstream acceptance of anime in Western audiences. A fun watch.
- Sideways (2004) - The scene where Miles picks up Jack takes place in L.A. Sideways is an independent film that did very well and brought Paul Giamatti a solid leading role and much acclaim. The film itself has some undue prententiousness to it (it's about sommeliers so what do you expect?), but if you can look past that, it is a solid watch and also serves as a virtual tour of the California coastline.
- Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2009) - The vast majority of the film is actually in Hawaii, but it begins and ends in L.A., presumably Hollywood. Stars Jasaon Seigl, best bae Mila Kunis, Kristen Bell, and Russell Brand, with a few other SNL appearances. This is definitely another guy romcom that is good to have for a breakup. Its humor also holds up very well.
- Get Him to the Greek (2010) - A film that goes to several locations, but begins and ends in Los Angeles. Stars Russell Brand and Jonah Hill as a loose spin-off to their Forgetting Sarah Marhsall characters, with Nicholas Stoller still directing. Despite a very regrettable portrayal of male rape and the almost equally regrettable casting of P. Diddy, it's a decent enough watch to get a few laughs out of it, especially if you like Russell Brand's brand of humor.
- Inception (2010) - The very first dream layer the team enters is in DTLA. Also, the plane they're all on is headed to Los Angeles. Considered by many to be the best of Nolan, this is a film that is cerebral representation of dealing with grief all in the guise of a sci-fi action thriller. Stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Ellen Page, Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Marion Cotillard, and a few others.
Movies that take place in a fictionalized Los Angeles
- Blade Runner (1982) - Takes place in a dystopian Los Angeles future. Movie is a sci fi classic directed by Ridley Scott and starring Harrison Ford. The plot is centered around rogue synthetic humans and is a forerunner in the human vs. synths plotlines that we've seen time and again since. Has a huge legacy and got a bona fide sequel 35 years later.
- Back to the Future (1985) - Takes place in Hill Valley, a fictional city in California, but is filmed in and resembles San Gabriel Valley cities such as Glendale and Pasadena. Back to the Future is so popular that I'm not even going to bother typing more than that.
- Back to the Future Part II (1989) - Alnternates between a high technology future and a dystopian future in Hill Valley.
- Back to the Future Part III (1990) - Takes place in a frontier version of Hill Valley.
- Demolition Man (1993) - Takes place in a dystopian alternate timeline of Los Angeles, that become San Angeles in the future. This is another guilty pleasure of mine. Stars Sylvester Stallone, Sandra Bullock, and Wesley Snipes, among others, with a bit role for Robert Schneider. The movie is pretty bad, but still entertaining. The acting isn't bad at all, in fact Snipe's gave a great performance and the humor is really good. However, the films aesop is not very subtle, especially with Leary's little rant. They may as well just write "political correctness is bad, mkay" on a baseball bat and beat you over the head with it. Still, a fun watch.
- There Will Be Blood (2007) - Takes place in Little Boston, which is near Signal Hill and referenced in the film I believe. There Will Be Blood is, in my opinion, the best Revisionist Western we've had to date, and is renowned for it's superb writing, unconventional story telling, Daniel Day Lewis being Daniel Day Lewis, and the cinematography. Absolutely one of those movies you can watch several times and find something new to like.
- Blade Runner 2049 (2017) Takes place in a dystopian future in Los Angeles. Sequel to Blade Runner after 35 years, and was an excellent followup. I wonder if this is some kind of a record?
Thats it for my list. Don't feel like proofreading it, so I apologize for any grammatical errors. Be aware that I can't think of or remember EVERYTHING. Also this isn't meant to be an encyclopedic list, so there are some films I left off intentionalyl ebcause I didn't feel they were what I considered watchable. That being said, I'll edit in any film that's commented below, but don't blame me if you watch it and it sucks ass.
EDIT: Swimming With Sharks
(1994) - Another one I forgot. Stars 90s Kevin Spacey and Brett from Pulp Fiction. Decent watch, if not a bit over the top with the ending. Up in Smoke
(1978) - The original stoner comedy. Stars the comedy duo Cheech and Chong. Excellent watch and they do a good performance of Earache My Eye. In fact, the entire soundtrack is dope. Definitely worth a watch. Car Wash
(1976) - Solid comedy, stars Richard Pryor, and spawned the song of the same titled that charted heavily in the 70s. Had a really stupid remake that I think Aftermath records produced named The Wash
that is not at all worth mentioning further. Set It Off
(1996) - A bank heist film on the surface, but really the black woman's answer to Thelma and Louise. Stars Jada Pinkett-Smith, Vivica A. Fox, and Queen Latifah as a lesbian waaaaaaay before she officially came out. u/Cribbit
has further decreed that Bosch (Amazon Prime) and Barry (HBO) are further required watching for continued Los Angeles residency. u/SoCaLABoy

2020.03.30 02:13 RightLifeguard1 Mila Kunis (that 70's Show)
2020.03.19 11:22 thaiwifefinder Mila Kunis Biography
Film and TV on-screen character Mila Kunis came to distinction on the sitcom 'That '70s Show.' In film, she's co-featured in such hits as 'Overlooking Sarah Marshall, 'Dark Swan' and 'Awful Moms.'
Who Is Mila Kunis?
Entertainer Mila Kunis was conceived in Chernivtsi, Ukraine, in 1983. At seven years old, she moved with her family to Los Angeles, where she started taking acting exercises. In the wake of showing up in a few TV ads, Kunis handled a co-featuring job in the Fox sitcom That '70s Show in 1998, which prompted voice work for the animation arrangement Family Guy. Kunis has since delighted in a fruitful big screen vocation, gaining notice for jobs in Forgetting Sarah Marshall (2008), Black Swan (2010), Friends with Benefits (2011), Ted (2012) and Bad Moms (2016), among different highlights.
Kunis dated Culkin for a long time, before their "genial" split was declared in mid 2011. A long time later, while showing up on Dax Shepard's webcast, she admitted that their separation was unquestionably more troublesome than initially depicted, saying, "I f****d up."
In 2012 Kunis started dating entertainer Ashton Kutcher, her long-term co-star and on-screen beau from That '70s Show. In March 2014, news sources started detailing that Kunis, 30, and Kutcher, 36, were locked in and Kunis affirmed they were expecting a child in an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in May. The couple invited their child little girl, Wyatt Isabelle Kutcher, on September 30, 2014. In 2015 Kunis and Kutcher were hitched over the Fourth of July weekend at the Secret Garden at Parrish Ranch in Oak Glen, California, as indicated by People magazine. On November 30, 2016, Kunis brought forth their subsequent kid, a child named Dimitri Portwood Kutcher.
Regardless of every last bit of her prosperity, Kunis, who didn't have the foggiest idea about an expression of English when she previously showed up in the United States, says she hasn't overlooked her foundations. She lives in Los Angeles, not a long way from her folks, and when she visits, regularly communicates in Russian with them.
"We resulted in these present circumstances nation with actually nothing, thus any degree of accomplishment is imperative to us," Kunis has said. "[My parents] never needed me to turn into an entertainer since it's such a temperamental and flighty calling. At the point when you're migrants, and you need to buckle down for everything just to endure, it's just characteristic that you stress over having a steady activity and salary. In any case, I think currently they're pretty much persuaded that I'm doing entirely well and they don't need to stress over my vocation prospects any more."
