Film Reviews in 10 Tweets or less: Tropic Thunder, Cockneys vs Zombies and Drive Me Crazy

I know, I started this series and then last posted about it in February. I am the very definition of commitment-phobe. Anywho, even though I started listing the films I watch each month in my monthly round ups, occasionally I still live tweet my thoughts while watching them… So, you lucky people, here we go!

Tropic Thunder

220px-tropic_thunder_ver3Through a series of freak occurrences, a group of actors shooting a big-budget war movie are forced to become the soldiers they are portraying.

I remember the DVD of this being released while I was in my second year of uni and my house mate was going through a severe Robert Downey jr phase and I was convinced I would hate this movie. How wrong I was!
For some reason I had a craving to watch it again recently and decided to tweet some of my favourite lines from the movie… Sorry.

i don’t drop character til after i done the dvd commentary

the first time I watched this was in my second year uni flat with and she drew me a picture of Twigman for my wall of stuff

what do you mean you people? What do YOU mean, you people?!

you ma ma ma make me happy. Why don’t people quote this movie? It’s genius!

i’m a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude!


i need to watch Tropic Thunder more often!

Basically, if you haven’t watched this movie, you need to, it is silly af, but so, so, so funny and if you watch it with a friend, the inside jokes will be well worth it!

Cockneys vs Zombies

First thing you need to know about me, I have cockney in my genes. Second, I miss a good old bit of rhyming slang and regularly drop it into conversation, partly to confuse and partly to amuse. Either way, the subtle language of the cockney is dying out and we must preseve it. Thirdly, this was so bad it was bordering on genius.

Drive Me Crazy

Ok, so Sophie talked about this film in her podcast forever ago and I was like, I vaguely remember that from childhood but… Whatever, then  I saw it pop up on Netflix and I was like, you know what, let’s give it a go and well, it was so cheesey I felt my lactose intolerance flaring up, but it was an enjoyable enough way to spend an evening. Also I decided to tell Twitter about it too.

After hearing talk about Drive Me Crazy I am finally watching it!

i dont believe any of these people are in school

What a wild ride that was!
Tune in again at some random point in the future where I will live tweet a movie which will make no sense to a single one of my followers!
