Huge shoutout to Bryan James for breaking the two week dry spell here at 20 Something Awesome. Luckily for you all he does so in hilarious fashion. And with a little box sex.
What is in the box? Is it actually a castle? Is it merely just a McMansion? Is it simply just a box? Or is a metephor for life? Will anyone ever know?
Watch this short, but sweet video and answer for yourself.
If you ever watched a NAUGHTical Life video and thought, "that was slightly too short and offensive," this might be the video for you. This time, instead of Mick doing terrible stand-up we see him giving drunk advice on finding a job. He is clearly unemployed himself and at an emotional low. Somehow every piece of advice he gives just comes back to his ex-wife, in hilarious fashion.
If you've got the five minutes and like to laugh, watch it below! Enjoy it? Subscribe to him on Youtube.
The start of another month brings a solid stream of new movies and TV shows on Netflix Streaming. This includes the new Netflix Original Series, House of Cards. I gave House of Cards it's own post since it was deserving. Here are a few movies that didn't warrant their own post.
Director: John Hughes
Writer: John Hughes
Starring: Matthew Broderick, Alan Ruck, Mia Sara, Jnnifer Grey
Genre: Comedy, Drama, High School
Why You Should Watch It: If you haven't seen this movie before please follow these easy to execute steps:
Yes, I realize they will have died twice and seen the movie at minimum three times. That's all part of my master plan.
Director: Tom Shadyac
Writer: Paul Guay, Stephen Mazur
Starring: Jim Carrey, Maura Tierney, Justin Cooper, Cary Elwes, Anne Haney, Jennifer Tilly
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Why You Should Watch It: As a fourteen year old this was one of my favorite movies. Let's just say I was a Jim Carrey fan, but what pre-teen/teen wasn't during the bridging years of the new millennium? Slightly less silly than his Ace Ventura character, Fletcher could still bring the PG-13 crude and silly together like no one else. I haven't watched this movie in probably five years but I remember it holding up well. Then again this was one of my favorite and most quoted movies as a young pup. Watch it, and if you don't like it please come and yell at me in the comments second below.
Director: Dennis Dugan
Writer: Tim Herlihy, Adam Sandler
Starring: Adam Sandler, Christopher McDonald, Julie Bowen, Frances Bay
Genre: Comedy, Romance, Sports, Golf
Why You Should Watch It: I recently read a review of this movie by someone who first watched the film when they were far too old. That, and they were for some reason taking it seriously. It's a 90's Adam Sandler movie. You know, the guy who sings funny songs about Hanukkah and lunch ladies. The only thing serious about this movie, is the laughs! Boom, zing, zap! So if you have never seen this child-humor comedy classic, turn off your brain and have a few laughs. If you have seen it, and enjoyed it, watch it again and annoy whoever you're watching it with by quoting it throughout.
Director: Ron Underwood
Writer: S.S. Wilson, Brent Maddock
Starring: Kevin Bacon, Fred Ward, Finn Carter
Genre: Sci-fi, Classic, Thriller
Why You Should Watch It: Tremors might be Kevin Bacon's gift to the world. It might also be the greatest campy, desert monster, cult classic movie ever made. A dozen or so REAL characters encounter and deal with the wrath of a large worm like creature that can swim through the earth like a parasite swimming through your lower intestine. With a mix of laughs, Kevin Bacon, and some suspense this movie is definitely worth a watch.
