It’s looking like 2014 will be a great year for Kevin Hart (About Last Night). Ice Cube joins him in the new comedy Ride Along for lots of laughs and some action as well. Anything Kevin Hart touches turns to comedic gold these days and it doesn’t seem like his Midas Touch will be leaving anytime soon. I will be going to the theater to see this film. Check out the preview below and let me know if you will too.

The dynamic duo who brought you Shaun of the Dead and Hot Fuzz have a new doomsday film coming to a theater near you on August 23rd. “Five friends who reunite in an attempt to top their epic pub crawl from 20 years earlier unwittingly become humankind’s only hope for survival.” (Source) I absolutely loved Shaun of the Dead – it’s on my top five for zombie movies – and Hot Fuzz wasn’t too shabby either. So I am definitely excited to see this film. Simon Pegg and Nick Frost just seem to have the perfect formula for writing and starring in action/comedy films so it’s always a pleasure to see them act together and give us something new. You can always count on four key elements in a Pegg-Frost film: laughs, booze, explosions and chases. And by that decree I have truly become a fan of their films. I can’t wait to see this movie as it blends three things I highly enjoy: beer, comedy and killer robots. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think of The World’s End!

Taking a cue from The Hangover trilogy, Last Vegas is a tale of four best friends who embark on a Las Vegas bachelor party for their friends’ final “hoo-rah” before his wedding. But, it’s not the plot that makes this film so appealing to me. It’s the all-star leading actors and their quirky antics in one of the greatest places on earth, Las Vegas. Although this film is clearly a Hangover for an older generation, I believe its alcohol induced comedic moments will appeal to a younger audience of twenty-somethings as well. And with this much talent in one film, it will be an experience to see these guys let loose like never before and interact and compete with the younger generation. As a fan of all ridiculously over-the-top party movies I can definitely say this movie looks appealing to me and it must be noted that nothing says comedy like a drunken Morgan Freeman in a chic nightclub. With four amazing actors under its belt and a slew of liquor induced mishaps and Kodak moments, I think this may be one of the funnier old guy films of the decade. But, don’t take my word for it. Watch the trailer below and post a comment underneath to let me know what you think.

This may come as a surprise to you, but I highly enjoyed the 2010 animated comedy, Despicable Me. For an animated film, it definitely provides the laughs and excitement of a live action adult comedy. Not only is Steve Carell’s accent amusing, but those quirky little minions always seem to tickle my funny bone. This is why I am so excited to see the upcoming sequel Despicable Me 2. Promising to provide more laughs, new characters and of course the family structure from the original, Despicable Me 2 could be one of the best animated films of the year. But, don’t take my word for it. Check out the trailer below and let me know what you think.

So what happens when you mix The Breakfast Club with Night of the Living Dead? You get the campy zombie film Detention of the Dead. As a huge zombie fan, I generally like most films about the “living dead” and I try to watch as many zombie films as humanly possible. So, of course I will have to see Detention of the Dead, no matter how corny or mediocre it may appear from the trailer. I am like the Ash Ketchum of zombie films, “I have to [watch] them all”. So, check out this trailer and let me know what you think.

This will probably be the funniest movie of the year. With an all-star cast like that how can it not be hilarious? Watch the trailer and tell me you don’t laugh.
