21 Jump Street
That was pretty surprising.
Channing Tatum's comedic ability was something else I don't think anyone was expecting either.
Cabin in the Woods. I had high expectations, but they were blown away. It's easily one of my ten favorite horror movies.
The Grey- much more emotionally harrowing and mature than I was expecting. I didn't know it was going to stare death in the face the way it did.
21 Jump Street- it was funny.
The Avengers. I expected it to be good but Whedon wowed me.
The Dark Knight Rises: I expected it to be great and Nolan wowed me.
Chronicle- I didn't think it looked that good in the trailers. The story caught me by surprise.
Jeff who lives at home- I hadn't heard much about it and had low expectations. The performances were better than I expected for the low budget.
Also 21 Jump St was funnier than I could of imagined.
For all the post hype of 21 Jump Street being so hilarious I actually didn't find it all that funny.
It was a good movie but nowhere near as funny as some make it out to be. The performances were really good though and it was entertaining but it wasn't laugh out loud funny.
I might actually have to switch to this. I liked Cabin in the Woods more, but I did go into that expecting to like it. I thought 21 Jump Street was going to suck hard, and only watched it because my brother picked it up at Redbox and told me I could borrow it since it was already going to be a day late. It wasn't the funniest movie ever, but it was pretty damn funny.
If you walked out a hour into the movie, then I'm guessing you missed why everyone loved it and are calling it a redefining horror movie. A LOT of stuff happened that made flaws and cliches early on make complete sense. I loved it and feel it'll impact the genre the same way Scream did, maybe even more so.
Did it deserve to get a higher tomato meter score than TDKR and others, probably not. But it was a great flick!
The Cabin in the Woods and The Hunger Games.
Yeah... I'm going to have to go back and agree on 21 Jump Street. Now that was a complete suspire in the best way. I was dragged to it, and left completely satisfied and with a new respect for Channing Tatum.
I kinda was expecting 21 Jump Street to be funny and I said before that after the Dilemma, which was awful but I thought Tatum was good in, that Channing Tatum should do more comedy.
I'm going to go with Chronicle. I didn't expect that movie to be good and it ended up being great.
So far for me:
21 Jump Street
The Three Stooges
Regarding The Dilemma, isn't it weird that Channing Tatum was the funniest part of that movie, considering comedy is what Vince Vaughn and Kevin James specialize in?
21 Jump looked utterly horrid..yet was pretty dang good
Yet Avengers was tough to pull off...and they nailed it.
Cabin in the Woods
The Hunger Games
Probably 21 Jump Street
The Grey was surprising because I thought it was gonna be a balls to wall action film with Liam Neeson punching wolves but it was actually a good, well made, well written, well acted movie
Yeah, that exactly what I thought it was gonna be too. Then... whoa.
Both of these as well as 21 Jump Street.
I'm not a Whedon worshiper so I didn't know what to expect with Cabin but I absolutely loved it. As a huge horror movie fan it brought a smile to my face.
The Hunger Games I wasn't interested in at all with all the comparisons with Battle Royale(which I love)but I gave it a chance and it was pretty damn good with some great acting.
21 Jump Street I was weary about because of two reasons. One of the reasons was Channing Tatum and the other was that it was another movie based on an older television series. I was actually laughing my ass off quite a bit with this movie and I agree with a lot of other people that said Tatum should stick to comedies for now.
Chronicle just for the fact that I thought it was going to be a **** cluster like Hancock.
21 Jump Street because I never knew Channing Tatum was so damn hilarious.
Yeah, I did forget Three Stooges. That **** was insanely accurate to the originals.
Except it had Snookie.
Yep, and he was the only character in the movie that was actually funny.
21 Jump Street
I will never make fun of Channing Tatum again, he has surprised me big time this year
21 Jump Street, MIB3, and Ted all surprised me. I have yet to see Magic Mike, and seeing Steven Soderbergh's name attached got me interested. Good year for Channing Tatum.
