I like comedies. My favorite comedy that I’ve seen over a hundred times (and this is no exaggeration) is Rush Hour 2. My family and I watch every chance we get and we pretty much know every line in the movie. A good action comedy film can be so much fun but can have those exhilarating moments that you get with a classic action movie and Rush Hour 2 embodies that perfectly. My second favorite action comedy movie is now Tropic Thunder.
Starring the likes of Ben Stiller, Jack Black, and Robert Downey Jr. in a role that garnered him only his second Oscar nomination, Tropic Thunder is an insane plot that is written so hilariously, outrageously, and bluntly that it’s almost a miracle it was ever even made.
The Falcon and the Winter Soldier. I’ve been excited for this show for practically over a year. The series premiere has confirmed why I was so excited in the first place.
Sticking true to the theme that has made this series so intriguing (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) The Falcon and the Winter Soldier feels like a direct correlation to the movie, even providing blatant parallels to the structure of the story and the themes while also giving us something new thanks to the series delving into Sam and Bucky’s stories, two characters who have always been interesting but never given the full chance to shine.
Anthony Mackie is already taking full advantage of this opportunity to showcase his character under the spotlight. Already there is so much more depth to Sam Wilson in literally the opening scene of the show than his entire time in the MCU so far. It’s fascinating.
