Quick Thoughts: South Park Episode 225 (Cash for Gold)

South Park continues its long-lasting, finger pointing antics in a bit of a brief commentary on the whole jewelry and gold business with this week’s episode.  The laughs can still come, but it’s far from a guarantee.  There’s ambition to the episode, but it all feels too short-lived for the its own good.  Ultimately, the episode is just another ripple in the show’s large pond.

Quick Thoughts: South Park Episode 224 (Reverse Cowgirl)

The last season of South Park was a bit of a rough ride, going through many of the expected obscurities with a few serious moments and more than a handful of negligible moments.  But now we’ve entered season 16 of the often raunchy show which, thankfully (and like a proper season opener), brought enough laughs and jaw-droppers to keep anticipation for the rest of the season up.  You could call this episode (Reverse Cowgirl) one of the ultimate spins on the term “toilet humor.”  And because this is satire, it wouldn’t be complete without references to society and culture.  Some of it’s arbitrary, but at this point, you either expect or watch South Park for that exact reason.

Quote Review: Hall Pass (2011)

“I think I can do better.”

Not since Envy has a “comedy” left me so bored and unable to even begin mustering a smile that it’s almost an accomplishment in and of itself. There’s nothing to really spoil with this borderline travesty of a movie since it’s all so ridiculously predictable. The most surprising quality of Hall Pass is how it comes so close to insulting both gender demographics–in fact, it doesn’t even take its time getting to this despicable low. Even the jokes are humorlessly crude and crass, leading to a sad example of a film that disgusts more than it amuses, but bores and aggravates more than anything.
