’50/50′ combines cancer and comedy

’50/50′ combines cancer and comedy

Typically, when the main character of a film is dying of cancer, you can’t expect a lot of laughs in the script. That’s not the case with 50/50, which combines comedy and drama in a way that emulates the natural ebb and flow of emotions in real life to create a film that is both touching and witty. Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays 27-year-old Adam, an all-around good guy who eats right, exercises and still ends up getting … Read entire article »

Paul taps into shared geek knowledge

Paul taps into shared geek knowledge

Any movie written by Simon Pegg and Nick Frost, starring Seth Rogen and Kristen Wiig and featuring a scene set at Comic Con is right up my alley, so naturally, I was very excited for Paul. The film is a hilarious mixture of E.T. and Pineapple Express with a little Shaun of the Dead throw in for extra flavor. … Read entire article »

Rogen flips the script in The Green Hornet

Rogen flips the script in The Green Hornet

When you think of a comic book hero, the first name that pops into your head probably isn’t Seth Rogen. In fact, many things about The Green Hornet aren’t exactly conventional. The script was penned by Rogen and pal Evan Goldberg, who also wrote Superbad, and directed by Michel Gondry of Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind fame. This unconventional team is exactly what makes this film feel new and different from the Iron Man explosion fests … Read entire article »

Funny (real) People

Funny People is not exactly a comedy. It’s not really a drama or romance either. It’s a little combination of all those things and that’s what makes it feel so real. In a far more true-to-life plot than anything the writers of Entourage could ever dream of, Seth Rogen plays Ira Wright, a struggling comedian living in L.A. who befriends comedy superstar George Simmons, played by actual comedy superstar Adam Sandler. … Read entire article »

Trashwire’s Wil Chinchilla will cover SXSW 2009

Last year’s SXSW was simply an amazing inspiring pilgrimage to the hippie Mecca on the south side of America. On behalf of Trashwire.com, I am able to go to the 2009 festival, and this time experience helps a lot. Not only was the 2008 festival filled with tons of great films I did not get a chance to see, there were also so many panels, conversations, and many events going on simultaneously. … Read entire article »

Kevin Smith reaches comedy climax with ‘Zack and Miri’

After returning home from seeing Kevin Smith‘s new film, Zack and Miri Make a Porno, for the second time, I was a bit disappointed to see the relatively low rating for the film on Rotten Tomatoes. A 66% fresh rating? That’s only three points higher than Clerks II! Even Smith’s self-professed worst movie, Jersey Girl, has a 40% fresh rating. Did the people who gave those ratings watch the same comedy that I saw? Zack and Miri seems to follow the recipe for a great comedy. It takes one part View Askew cynical humor, one part Seth Rogen, a sprinkle of familiar faces from the Judd Apatow universe, and a little bit of romantic comedy sweetness, all garnished with a dash of full-frontal Jason Mewes, to make something that achieves what … Read entire article »

‘Pineapple Express’ a killer bud comedy

‘Pineapple Express’ a killer bud comedy

The great “Movie Stoner Duo Hall of Fame” includes Cheech and Chong, Jay and Silent Bob, Harold and Kumar, and now Dale and Saul, the main characters in the ridiculously funny Pineapple Expresss. The brilliant team from Superbad is back with a brand new stoner comedy that is weird, outrageous and bizarre, all while being incredibly funny. Like Superbad‘s Seth and Evan, this time our dynamic duo is Process Server Dale Denton (Seth Rogen) and his … Read entire article »
