Disaster Movie

Posted by Chalky on Sep 19, 2008 in Film, Review |

Tonight, I decided to take myself off to the cinema as I hadn’t been for a while and it might break up the monotony a bit. My aim was to go and see a really pointless comedy because at 8pm on a Friday, I’m not really looking for something insightful and intelligent (who am I kidding, it doesn’t really matter what time of what day, I’m still below insightful and intelligent!).

My plan was to go and see You Don’t Mess with the Zohan because that adequately met my needs of being both un-insightful and stupid. However, after only being out for a month, it seems that it’s already been pulled from the cinema! Unfortunately, I didn’t find this out until after I’d arrived! So instead, I decided to go with Disaster Movie.

Many people say that these kind of movies have had their day and it’s time for them to die a death. Whilst I agree that they are starting to get a little tiresome, a bit of satire is always good fun. The only problem for me was that I’d hardly seen any of the films that were being represented!

Films included:

  • Juno
  • The Incredible Hulk
  • Batman
  • The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
  • Superbad
  • Indiana Jones
  • Hellboy

They also did parodys of Amy Winehouse (which I found particularly amusing), Jessica Simpson and Hannah Montanna.

Overall, I thought it was alright. Probably not as good as some of the other films, I’m not sure if it’s done too well at the Box Office either. But, if you’re looking for a film with some mindless humour to cheer you up a bit, this should satify your needs!
