From previews I had always assumed Super Troopers would be a bad comedy. Enough people told me they enjoyed it I decided to give it a shot when I had some hours I could donate to the Bottomless Pit of Bad Decisions. Surprise, surprise, I laughed through most of the movie. I just watched its sequel yesterday and still laughed at the jokes and pranks, both verbal and visual. Somehow they’ve managed to recreate the gonzo schlock humor of the likes of Animal House and Caddyshack and make it work today.
I knew very little of The Witcher lore other than a smattering of playing the video games. While I like Henry Cavill, I was wary because of the latest round of Superman movies, so I went in cautiously. I didn’t actually care too much for the first episode… it seemed “monster of the week” and the story presented as disjointed. I decided to watch one more to make sure, and there I found my hook. Loved the first season greatly. Cavill nailed Geralt and the Witcher world felt big, mysterious, and exciting.
