Is Ted worth watching not high? Or would it make it better

What im saying is that i am a sucker for classic Westerns and usually despise the new Westerns (but still watch them just in case)... and this one delivered like a classic Western, able to bring back the old western style but yet mix it together with a modern effects and etc. It did not fall into the trap of making it boring or to violent. It carried the movie all the way through keeping the viewer entertained. The cinematography was amazing. The sceneries were spectacular and many of the shooting scenes were delivered with such excellence with the acting, directing but the cinematography brought those scenes and this movie to another level. The music was great as well. It did not become cliché but instead made you feel like you were back watching Clint Eastwood, Gary Cooper or John Wayne. It just captured me like no other western has in a while.

Co-Signing with the guys who saw TED... Seth MacFarlane with his Family Guy'esque humor playing Ted, automatically makes the movie hilarious... 8 of 10

You should watch the Proposition with Guy Pearce. It owns 3:10 to Yuma IMO.

Wild Wild West. just kidding.
Tombstone

9/10

Sheesh, this is one of the most intense films I've ever seen. Can't believe I hadn't seen this film until now. Really, really good.

Yup, perfect way to describe it. It's crazy that it starts out so care free and innocent with a wedding, buddies hanging out in their hometown, etc then without warning all of a sudden they're playing Russian Roulette with some crazy Viet Cong dude screaming 'didi mao!"

Great film with some all time greats- Deniro, Streep, Walken, Cazale (too bad he died so young, every movie he was in was a classic).

Safe House: 5/10
-Paint by #s action flick which is predictable throughout. A few cool scenes and Reynolds/Denzel are fun to watch, but you know how it ends before the first scene is done.

The Grey: 6.5/10
-Character driven + philosophical for a survival flick. Liam Neeson is truly on point. Really great atmosphere throughout and some good supporting acting. The wolves look good but relies on jump scares to inject life into scenes. No real climax hurts the film, intriguing ending.

Sherlocke Holmes Game of Shadows: 8/10
-Period piece buddy action/adventure with great acting from every level. The movie is long, over two hours, but so enjoyable that even goes by too fast. Cannot say enough good things.

I Am Number Four: 7/10
-If Michael Bay wrote Twilight. Really cool action scenes, low to no characterization, but great effects and pacing. Based on a book series so ending is appropriately climatic and leading. I am a sucker for entertaining if mindless action flicks (especially ones with Billy Bob Thorton) so my personal rating is 7/10, most people will have this closer to a 6 or a 5/10.

Breaking Bad Season 4: 9/10
-Not a movie, just a damn good TV series. Catching up for the opening to season five here soon.

Boogie Nights: 7.5/10

I didn't mind the first 3/4 of the movie but I thought the last quarter when everything started going downhill was excellent.

True Grit - B-/C+

Solid film but I don't get why so many had a hard on over it when it was in theaters. I would place it about equal with John Wayne version. I would see the sequel if they remade that too though.



Ted - B+/B

I went in with very low expectations and was pleasantly surprised. The jokes are hit and miss but I laughed more often than not. The plot is predictable and its obvoiusly a McFarlane product. I don't know how it would stand up to repeated viewings b/c many of the best lines were funny more for their shock value. Overall a solid R rated comedy.

The Raid: Redemption
Not bad, could have ended sooner though, the last 10-20 minutes of fighting could have been axed.
