This could have been a flimsy excuse for the Lonely Island boys to string together a bunch of unfinished joke songs around a loose plot, but they took it seriously enough to write a real story with a real character arc and string together a bunch of unfinished joke songs. Luckily those songs are very, very funny.
R.I.P. Maximus, soggy bones syndrome took you too soon.
While watching this movie I found myself asking three questions over and over: Who is this for? Why did they re-make Land of the Lost? Why am I watching this? The original TV series first aired in 1974 as an adventure show for children. Which means anyone who watched it as a kid would be in their early to mid 40s when this came out in 2009. Are they supposed to be busting a gut at these jokes about dinosaur…
There's too much to say about why this movie sucks, so I just want to focus on the casting of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. I think it was a huge mistake and her atrocious acting would dull the character even in a good movie. It's hard not to assume that she was chosen purely because she's a hot model type and for no other reason. (Maybe the billionaire husband?) Because it certainly was not due to her acting chops…
I had seen two John Carpenter movies prior to this one: The Thing and Ghosts of Mars, and my reactions to each could not have been more different. The former was an absolute joy and the latter alternately a joke and a chore. I knew Ghosts was considered a fluke in Carpenter’s career so I still had high hopes going into Halloween, especially since it was seemingly so highly regarded by the horror community.
And wow did it live up…
