21 Jump Street (2012)

Storyline: Two immature cops get sent to a local high school after there’s been a death caused by a synthetic drug unknown to the police. There they are supposed to “infiltrate the dealers, find the supplier”.

Actors: Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, Dave Franco

My review: This movie was on TV, so I decided to watch it although I wasn’t really that interested in it. It was actually a positive surprise. I mean, the jokes aren’t that original, but the whole idea (more or less), as far as I know, is. The characters were not my favourite, though. There were a few quite funny twists around the end, and I didn’t totally didn’t suspect the guy who turned out to be the supplier in the end (probably because I didn’t think about who could be it…). What I liked a lot, was that the nerds weren’t totally weird, other than in so many other films. And that the cool guys were all real nature guys (except for the selling-drugs part, I guess ๐Ÿ˜‰ ). It was a little, well… dumb at times, but I didn’t really expect it not to be. At first I totally didn’t get that one of the guys turned out to be Johnny Depp, but as soon as he spoke, I was really surprised! Oh, and there’s going to be a part two (22 Jump Street) in summer, but I don’t think I’m going to watch it. I know this is a little shorter than usual, but anyway: good film if you need something not uncomplicated, funny and easy-going.

Something I love about this film: The (NOT) exploding trucks and the nerds. I thought they were way funnier than the “cool” guys.

My rating: 7.5/10

Ferris Bueller’s Day Offย  (1986)

Storyline: Ferris Bueller is a master of his own kind in getting away from school. But this time the principal is determined to catch Ferris to show what a bad example he is.

Actors: Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara

My review: I don’t know how to start. I love it. It’s funny and what I like a lot about it, is that it’s something “new” (well it was when it was made).

The characters are pretty cool, I couldn’t imagine any other actor getting Ferris Bueller like Matthew Broderick. I haven’t seen him in any other films though. And Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara- we didn’t hear much of her after that, did we?) looked really pretty in this although she wore shoulder pads. As for Cameron, I thought he was a little… weird. In a nice way. But I still can’t get used to the 80’s clothes. Whoa. Not good.

I really don’t know what to say about it right now… It’s just awesome, the “Save Ferris” hot air balloon, the dance/sing scene (although it was pretty clichรฉ), all of Ferris’ idea’s. The soundtrack went pretty well with it. The only thing I didn’t think was that funny, was Ed Rooney. I don’t know why, but I just didn’t like him.

Something I love about this film: Charlie Sheen’s appearance. They made him stay up 48 hours before filming to make him look as realistic as possible. Well, it worked ๐Ÿ˜‰ But I also love when Ferris plays the clarinette.

My stars:

Humor: 9/10

Love: 5/10

Action: 4/10

In All: 9/10
