Tarantino once talked about how re-watching Dazed and Confused was like catching up with old friends and that's how I feel watching Rush Hour 2. Rush Hour 1 was a bit more drama and realism and Rush Hour 3 was a little too much comedy but was Rush Hour 2 was JUUUUUUUUUUUUST Right. The perfect balance of comedy and serious action.
Chris Tucker is on fire and Jackie Chan is in his prime, you can definitely tell the two of them have a good friendship even off screen and it makes for a better viewing when they're on screen.
Normally I find action comedies have fairly so so action set pieces but even after all these years i'm still super impressed with the Bamboo wall action sequence.
The only stain on the movie is Brett Ratner who hasn't exactly had the best time since this movie was released.
Lastly, I could watch the bloopers of this movie all day long. Here's the link for those of you who want to see.
Mine is 10 things I hate about you.
I can't think of a stronger run of consistent funny episodes and jokes than the 4-7 seasons of Always Sunny. Many of the episode concepts themselves to me are absolute classics (albeit, some used in other shows previously, but Always Sunny always took them to their most depraved extremes). You have the Gang Wrestles For the Troops, Charlie and Mac: White Trash, The Nightman Cometh, etc.
And then you have individual jokes within the episodes that are so memorable and creative to me, I really have to give the writing staff alot of credit.
From THE TRASH MAN gag in the Wrestling Episode, to the "Philanthropist" jokes in the Charlie dating episode.
I love all the Always Sunny seasons (with the strong exception of season 13), but Always Sunny Seasons 4-7 will always have a special place in my heart. Don't think I've ever laughed so hard at the a TV show watching these for the first or second times.
I love dry wit - fawlty towers, have you been served, red dwarf, the podcasts now show, news quiz. Leslie Nielsen but British would be awesome.
Finding british shows I'm the us without vpn for region spoofing isn't easy.
when I watch this show I just seem to expect to take it completely serious, which is why I think the jokes are so great because they generally catch me off guard
like the episode where sam is stuck in groundhog day, I started off taking the episode seriously and then laughing my ass off at dean's various deaths, and then back to serious at the end.
just one of the unexpected qualities that I like about the show
I remember seeing trailers for the show and thinking it looked pretty dumb. Kaitlin Olson just playing Sweet Dee in a different setting. Eventually watched the show and was pleasantly surprised that it was a far better show than the trailers led me to believe. Olson does play a similar character as Mackenzie Molng, however through the course of the show the Mick does learn to care for her new family, in stark contrast to Sweet Dee and the other characters in Always Sunny. The whole cast is comprised of funny characters who I grew to each love as I watched the show. My favorite being Alba, who hands down has the funniest one liners in the show. I was so sad to learn it was canceled by Fox and hadn’t been picked up by any other network. I guess the show was too good for Fox. I’m very sad to be nearing the end of my rewatch. Can anyone recommend any other comedies I should check out?
