ALOHA (2015): More Bradley Cooper Please!

More Bradley Cooper Please! It’s hard not to feel this way after his brilliant Oscar nominated performance in American Sniper (2014). Not to say that his new movie, Aloha is a similar kind of film, of course.

Writer/ Director, Cameron Crowe – the man responsible for the1996 hit, Jerry Maguire is back with the story of a celebrated military contractor (Cooper) who must choose between two love interests, played by Emma Stone and Rachel McAdams.

Love triangles are notoriously tricky, particularly if you’re the one to do the choosing. So lets look forward to seeing how things turn out for the parties involved in Aloha. Maybe we can get a few tips.

Jennifer Lawrence is no where to be seen in this one. But you will find two great comedy Actors in the shape ofAlec Baldwin (30 Rock) and Danny McBride of Pineapple Express (2008)This Is The End (2013) and other Seth Rogen/ Judd Apatow films.

Happy Aloha 🙂

SETH ROGEN’S This Is The End (2013). Funny? YES!

I learnt today that two close friends of mine do not find Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s This Is The End (2013) funny. WHAT?! I know. After coming to terms with their revelation, I made an effort to understand by running through the possible explanations:

  1. They hadn’t watched or enjoyed Pineapple Express (2008), Superbad (2007) Knocked Up (2007) or other great comedies by Rogen and Goldberg.
  2. They must not have been in the right frame of mind to properly appreciate the greatness. I believe that you have to be ‘in the mood’ for certain kinds of films (comedy, drama, action, etcetera) to get the best out of them.
  3. They were too tired to pay due attention.

Apparently none of the above explanations were correct, so I was left with the only possible answer. It’s clear. Something is very wrong with both of them. As such, trying to make sense of the situation would be a royal waste of time. And… I might need new friends.

What do you think? Did you find This Is The End funny? I’d like to think that there’s nothing wrong with you… 🙂
