I saw Ted tonight. As much as I like to shit on everything Seth Macfarlane does I thought this movie was actually pretty funny. I'd give it a 7.5/10

Family Guy and American Dad are very hit-or miss, but I thought Ted was fucking hysterical. I laughed my ass off throughout (I'm also one of the people that Macfarlane is targeted with the obscure references. I almost peed myself at the Brandon Routh, Sinead O'Connor, and especially the Flash Gordon references so that is definitely a part of why I loved it so much.) It wasn't quite as funny as 21 Jump Street, but it was definitely an elite comedy imo.

So I was pretty busy yesterday with family stuff and didn't get on here, but the night before I saw Spidey 4 and MIB 3. Spidey 4 was pretty good. It is definitely darker than the first three films with Tobey Maguire (who was OK as Parker, but a bit of a dweeb, if you ask me) and Kirsten Dunst (who is severely overrated in every possible way). There were also some incredible POV shots where the camera shows what Spidey would see as he is swinging through the air. The fights were pretty good. The villain was so-so. The story line with Gwen Stacy was nice to see. The Denis Leary role (Gwen's father, police chief) was very well done. I also liked how they started exploring Peter's relationship with the father he barely knew.

...and believe it or not, there was some decent acting as well.

However, the real surprise of the night was MIB3. I saw the first one and liked it well enough, but was never a huge fan. I could understand the appeal, but it really wasn't the type of movie I often found myself in the mood to watch. I saw bits & pieces of the second one on cable over the years, and it seemed almost too silly for me. So, I wasn't expecting much from this one. However, it turned out to be really good. The Josh Brolin character was brilliant, and without giving anything away, it was nice to see what the character of Agent K was like before he became such a sourpuss. The ending of the movie was fantastic. I really enjoyed the film, and would definitely recommend it to anyone who liked either of the first two.

I am about to leave to see Spidey 4 and Nat I saw MIB3 and thought it was average but really boring. Taking Tommy Lee Jones I thought was a bad move but alot of jokes I thought fell through.

For the love of god it's not Spider-Man 4, it's a fucking reboot. And it was nowhere near as good as the Sam Riami movies (even Spider-Man 3). While I thought they acting was excellent for the most part, they just didn't capture how I feel Spider-Man should be. It just didn't feel right. Not to mention the typical horrible Hollywood perception of high school and the lackluster CGI.

This Spider Man was way better than the first 3 ones they did. Spiderman 3 is one of the biggest dissappointments I've ever watched.
