So, as is always the case when a new Adam Sandler comedy is announced, I approached Funny People with caution. The poster was released a few months back, and it didn’t really give any insight as to what the film would be about. It is, however, written and directed by Judd Apatow, he of The 40 Year Old Virgin and Knocked Up fame. So I knew it had the potential to be good. Entertaining, if nothing else.
The trailer is now up on the YouTube, and I must say, the film comes across much differently than I’d expected. It has more f a dramatic element to it, but it still remains very funny. Take a gander at Sandler and Apatow’s Funny People after the jump.

That’s pretty much all I can say after reading Quentin Tarantino’s latest screenplay Inglorious Bastards. Grammatical and spelling errors aside, this is hands down one of the best scripts I’ve had the pleasure of reading this year.
I’m a fan of Tarantino’s work, but I am by no means what you would call a “fanboy.” I find some of his work – namely Reservoir Dogs and the Kill Bill saga – to be quite flawed.

Inglorious is genius because it tells a damn good story. While I won’t reveal any spoilers, I will discuss characters and plot points, so if you don’t want to know more, then don’t read after the jump. Continue reading
