My Top 5 Comedic Films

I have a stacked list of movies that fit under this genre. But I’m only going to list 5 of my favorites here. Like my other posts, I will not be adding the movies’ synopsis. Instead, I’ll comment on them, more like a critic with no idea of being one. Anyway, here’s my top favorite recent comedic movies:

Nacho Libre (2006)

1. Nacho Libre

Nope, that’s not Superman your seeing. Your eyesight must be blurred.

It’s Jack Black trying to fly.

This is my top favorite comedic film. Jack Black delivers again!

Kung Fu Hustle (2005)

Kung Fu Hustle (2005)

2. Kung Fu Hustle

Possibly the most funniest kung fu movie I have ever seen. Now I know Jackie Chan’s films are funny too, but this one just hit the spot.

Blades Of Glory (2007)

Blades Of Glory (2007)

3. Blades of Glory

The first time I saw this movie’s poster, I thought it was a gay film like Brokeback Mountain. Well, that’s because I didn’t get to see the trailer of this movie (:-P). One of my friends recommended this to me. I wasn’t expecting much, but boy was I kicked with laughter with this one.

Get Smart (2008)

4. Get Smart

The Rock is in this film. But I really don’t know if he was aiming for comedy or just offbeat comedy. Couldn’t really tell. But he was able to pull it off. A good movie.

Hot Rod (2007)

5. Hot Rod

This one will “smack destiny in the face”. Well, this film’s punch line delivered. A good movie worth wasting your time on. Hey, what else have you to do anyway?

Well, I know I didn’t explain much about the movies (lol). I just wanted to show my list. If you have list of recent movies in this genre, please send me a link or list your movies in the comments area. Criticism is welcomed here, but give a recommendation of a movie afterwards. Later. 🙂


Animated Movies

Are you tired of watching real people act? Or did one of your favorite actors have a poor performance scale in his/her latest movie?

Well, if you’ve said yes to any of the two questions, then you might want to try out some animated movies. No, this is not “anime” movies. Those are different. They don’t usually reach the big screen in theatres but sold in Japan Anime stores. These animated movies I’m talking about are movies with known actors giving voice-overs to animated characters (well, some movies like Kung Fu Panda; Jack Black as the panda). Maybe you’ll hear your favorite actor dubbing for one in one of the animated movies below.

Sorry, you’ll find no synopsis here. But I recommend watching them. Take a breather. Watch one.

My Top 5 Romantic Films

Here is a list of romantic/romantic-comedy movies I have watched so far:

Here is my Top 5 list:

(Sorry, I’m not posting the synopsis for any of these. You can Google-it for yourself. ^_^)

1.  My Sassy Girl (2001)

For some, The Princess Bride should be number 1. I like that movie very much too, but this movie just swept me away with the story. If you’re a die hard romantic, you’ve got to watch this. This is a Korean movie so you’ll have to find one with English subtitles. Don’t watch the English dubbed ones, they ruin it sometimes.

2.  The Princess Bride (1987)

Yes, this must be on the list. You can’t have a top romantic list without it. But sadly it’s not number 1. I usually see this movie on the number 1 spot on others top 5 or 10 list. This is a classic. Not that it’s old or anything, well the film is old, but the romance in this movie doesn’t seem to die. A must see times infinity.

3.  Stardust (2007)

A fantasy-romance movie with a very good story. Ever wonder what happens if you catch a falling star? This might give you an idea.

4.  Windstruck (2004)

Another Korean movie with the same leading lady in “My Sassy Girl”. The Koreans are making really good romantic movies these days. Their nation must be in the “state of love-mity” (love + calamity = love-mity… 😛 … criticize all you want, that word isn’t changing). Well anyway, this movie is somewhat related to “My Sassy Girl”. You’ll have to watch both for yourself to find out. Both films depict real world scenarios with a kick of comedy.

5.  Jack And Jill vs The World (2008)

I don’t know why this is here. I’ll try to change this last one when I remember something better. What? You want me to put “Batman: The Gotham Knight” here? But Rachel died!! 😯 … well anyway, back to the movie. This film is romantic in a more modern American way. You know how it is: Sex then romance, then more sex, then more romance.. sex.. sex.. yup, the American liberated romantic way. But this also has a nice story. A real world scenario with a little comedy. You’ll see.. ever see a guy talking to a pigeon?

I apologize for putting only my comments and what-not here. I just wanted to post my list.

I want to see your list of romantic films. List them down in the comments or send me a link to your post.

Criticism is welcome here. But leave recommendations or your list afterwards. Later! 🙂
