Wow JUNO was the best movie! It made me LMFAO! The humor was brilliant! Like when shes like "That condom makes my boyfriends junk taste like blackberry pie!" Its not just the humor its the way they say it because the acting was great and I loved the music and the story line. It was simple and I loved it! and it seems to me that your more like a star wars guy and I never even heard of the movies that you posted up there. LMAO the Line "Your eggo is preggo!" Cracked me the FUCk UP!
Yea dude, I got dragged to that thing with this chick when it was in the theaters. Here I am expecting to round the ol' bases in public ( don't knock it 'till you tried it ) and the bitch gets sucked into watching the damn thing! So there I am, time's passing like I'm being shot at in the matrix, and on top of not getting much that night I had to deal with the audience of puppets, laughing when their masters pulled the string.
Super gay. Juno sucks. Right on man.
thanks for enlightening me I was sortof thinking of watching it, but you saved from a pit of doom, at first i thought your review was just an immature 14 yr old but now after watching a sneak peek 5 minutes, I see that the review was real. thank you, nice jewknow joke lol
I thought it was a good movie. A little different from what I've seen before, but nonetheless a good movie.
You are the minority. If you are saying that Juno sucks and its jokes are not funny, then why did it get the Oscar for best screenplay.
I know it wasn't the best movie ever, but it wasn't terrible. I don't recall the phrase,"Hes the cheese to my macroni," ever being in the movie. You did not put any detail on why the jokes were not funny. Actually it looks like you didn't see the movie at all! All you said was a dumb-ass reference to JFK getting shot.
There were funny jokes. For instance, when the adopting mother said how hard it was to adopt, and Juno said, "they pretty much put babies in those t-shirt guns, and shoot them out at sporting events."
So, actually watch the movie before hating it.
Concluding and summarizing: You suck!
Well now, i haven't seen the movie yet (my opinion might turn out to be the same as yours), but you called the movie a piece of shit, and gave about 2 examples of why. Bad review.
this was more of a rant than a review, as a review would've left a positive insight to balance it out.
Never seen it. But, really, your reviewing skills are awful. But, whatever. opinions are opinions.
read above, then ingest rat poison.
sorry. i can't quite understand you. i'm on my hamburger phone.
Careful, that's no hamburger!
Didn't see Juno, and not gonna see it. Cause I think it sucks. Saw the previews, don't care.
And yes, I'm saying it sucks before I even bother to watch it because I'm that guy who's not afraid to admit that I've seen previews and thought in such a manner. To backtrack to the most recent thought I've had when performing this action, "Hey, this movie looks like shit. I'm not gonna see it because I think it sucks already."
In short, much agreed with your thoughts.
You bring up some valid points, most of which I disagree with, but that doesn't make them any less valid. I happen to really enjoy the movie. My biggest problem with it was the overuse and "trying to hard" ways to make Juno seems all hip with her cool lingo's. I felt like that was overused slightly. Besides that, she was an adorable girl with a heartfelt story. I really enjoyed myself throughout the entirety of the film.
You are entitled to your opinion though.
Well, I'm not going to bash you for not liking the movie and then insult you in some infantile, asenine way, but I think you kind of missed the point of the humor.
"Then I was subject to cruel torture of horrible dialogue, clearly trying to impact pop culture." Well, actually I think the point was to make the dialogue the antithesis of pop culture, making the characters out to just be a bunch of huge losers TRYING to be cool, and utterly failing, thus humor. In effect, each individual line was deliberately bad writing, taken by itself, but it was the level at which each line played off the previous one that made it well written DIALOGUE.
As for bad acting, I don't think that's right at all. Acting is just adhering to the director's vision of the script (which, hopefully, adheres to the author's), which I think the actors did flawlessly. Bad acting, on the other hand, is when each actor brings a radically different mood to the movie, and they all just end up clashing with each other and failing to create a harmonic tone for the movie. The brilliance of the acting in Juno was that all of the actors presented dramatically different characters while making them all mesh together.
Personally I didn't really go for the story, either. But it was refreshing to see some really good acting and witty dialogue amongst all the crap the "superstars" assail us with daily. But hey, not like you have to like it. And I'm with you on Event Horizon.
Oh thank god!! I dont think i could take one more "Best movie EVA!!!" from anyone... and if I did I'd probably throw up on them... I havn't seen it but it gets to a point where you hear so much about it (especially if it doesnt even look that good to start with) that you want to die every time some one mentions it. every one who I talked to about it was trying to convince me it was so great... but no matter how much they try to make it sound good it sounds even worse.
It's like having your parents tell you over and over "DrUgs R BaD 4 YoO" (god I hate that) and it just makes you want to do drugs just so that they shut the fuck up.
It just looks so bad on the adds I feel empty and dead inside when I see it (and that doesnt happen often.)
and for all you people saying "Oh Ur soooo lame! U hvnt evn seen it yet! Its sooo coool and funnny!!!" Dont bother trying... you'll just make the Hate bigger...
Concluding, and summarizing: I hate Juno
sorry... really had to get that out...
Juno was okay. It tried to be too indy though
I wouldn't exactly call an Academy Award winning movie with a worldwide gross of 200.000.000$ a flop. And about the "He's the cheese to my macaroni." I agree that line is the shit but come on, she's just 16 for God's sake.
Anyway I think your mistake was thinking it would be like Superbad after seeing Michael Cera and not considering the fact that Academy would never give an Oscar to Superbad -which was awesome, McLovin ftw- type films. And If you say Starship Troopers was brilliant, you shouldn't be going to movies like Juno in the first place.
I couldn't even watch the trailer. I closed my eyes.
dude, i totally agree with you
It was alright. one of those examples of a movie getting so much hype that people either go in and try to convince themselves its absolute brilliance, OR try and find absolutely everything wrong with it in an attempt to denounce said hype.
the writing was nice, i was expecting more actual comedy though. 40 Year Old Virgin was a much better hyped up comedy movie
Its slightly better than Alvin and the Chipmunks.
