It’s time for another episode of The (title pending) Movie Podcast with Tank and Fogs!
In our box office round-up, we have plenty to say about the disastrous performance of “John Carter”, and then for our featured reviews, we discuss “21 Jump Street”, and “Casa di me Padre”.
Inspired by “Casa de mi Padre”, our featured discussion this week is focused on the career of Will Ferrell. Tank and I break down our impressions of him and discuss our opinions on most of not all of his major roles. From his days on SNL through the huge successes of “Anchorman” and “Talladega Nights”, we go over it all!
So be sure to check it out, you don’t want to miss hearing Tank try to speak Spanish!
With “Casa de mi Padre” opening this week, I thought it would be a good opportunity to turn to one of our “What do you think of ___” discussions, this time, Will Ferrell.
Will Ferrell can actually be a pretty divisive comic. There are a number of people who love his movies and consider his best comedies to be classics, and then a number of others who think either he’s a one trick pony (playing the same character over and over again) or just don’t find him funny.
The Tank and I go over our feelings on his career tomorrow on (title pending), but I wanted to hear how YOU felt. Do you think Ferrell is an insane genius? A hysterical clown who can crack you up by reading a soup recipe? Or does he rub you the wrong way? Maybe his movies fall flat for you, or you feel like he’s just doing the same silly stuff again and again and again.
Which ever side of the fence you want to fall out on, we want to hear it! What do YOU think of Will Ferrell?!
Will Farrell goes to Mexico, fights drug barons, speaks spanish, sings by a campfire and gets into gun fights. It’s a silly (and funny) enough concept as it is, but he and his team put together a movie that mocks the low production values of the genre, and then take some extreme liberties by moving the film occasionally into the surreal.
It’s a high risk comedy. If it connects, you’ll likely find it hysterical. If you don’t, you’ll likely think it’s a travesty.
One thing is for sure though… Will Ferrell haters need not apply.
January and February are behind us now… this weekend marks the start of the 2012 Spring Movie Season!
While it doesn’t quite have the huge blockbusters of the Summer or Holiday seasons, March has turned into quite a nice month on the Hollywood release calendar. There’s plenty of big budget flicks and star vehicles to look forward to, and it all kicks off this weekend with “The Lorax”!
