20th Century Faux starts today
How are they?
Honestly they run the gamut from really bad and in bad taste to very funny and really clever. Because the films and their humor are all over the place I won’t presume to know what you are going to find funny. I will say that I found the shorter ones better than the longer ones (On Any Given Sunday excepted). I say this because the build ups tend to much too long for punchlines that aren’t up to it (say a dick pic).
Are they worth your time?
Taken as a whole yes. I was gifted and was able to see all 16 films in one sitting which I think worked better since it put me in a head space to appreciate the humor more. The ones that seemed disposable at the first worked better in context of the madness of the whole set.
20th Century Faux premieres today with the release of the first four films and pod cast about them. Four more will be released on each of the next three weeks along with a new podcast. To see them or for more information go here.
