Slant Magazine: Your Highness Review

Slant Magazine: Like Pineapple Express, former American indie icon David Gordon Green's last stoner pastiche, Your Highness, is high on its own stupidity. He and his screenwriters bemusedly disdain the generic clichés they employ throughout their pot-and-swords-and-sorcery comedy because, well, they're stoners writing a stoner comedy.

I figured this one was going to be one of those rare comedies that gets super high marks from reviwers after all the hype leading up to its release for the last couple weeks.

Why is everything I actually want to see getting such low reviews lol...I already know Scream 4 won't get high reviews since its a slasher film.

Battle LA was like a last minute want to see, and it had all kinds of positive reviews. Yet I hated it lol.

A movie where people get slashed

DaThreats3415d ago

I know that, it means you actually see the body being cut? Like Halloween 2?

-MD-3415d ago

Slasher films are stuff like Halloween, Nightmare on Elmstreet, Scream etc.

Soldierone3414d ago

Slasher films are when one person/character kill other people in brutal ways. Usually teens that do something wrong like have sex, cheat, and lie end up dying.

Its basically all your horror films today.

2 and a half star ain't bad. Probably one of the most positive review out there for this "comedy"

Movies don't generally get the overly high marks that games do from their reviewers. Even Metacritic has extended the "green zone" for scores to go even lower for movies than it does for games.

-MD-3415d ago

I wasn't aware Metacritic did that. I've noticed movie reviews in general go all over the place and it's pretty common to have a game come out and score all 7,8,9 and 10's with nothing lower.

That's too bad about the reviews, I was really looking foward to the minotaur rape scene. Figures though, couldn't stand Pineapple Express.

Christopher3415d ago

With you on Pineapple Express. I'll be waiting a bit to see how this turns out.

JL3414d ago

I liked Pineapple Express, but I didn't think it was as completely awesome as many led me to believe.
