Comments– This one surprised me. I didn’t even really want to watch it this weekend, but Bridgette insisted, so we did. But, to me, it was one of the better comedies of 2009! It wasn’t too stupid or forceful with the comedy like some movies can be. Instead, it told a great story of a guy who reminds me of my best friend. There really isn’t too much to say about this one, to be honest, it just did everything it was supposed to very well. Paul Rudd (Role Models, Knocked Up) and Jason Segel (How I Met Your Mother, Knocked Up, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) are really becoming two of my favorites with their recent outings. Very enjoyable movie that had Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk)! Good-Great.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
