Movie Review: TED 2

3

Directed By: Seth MacFarlane
Produced By: Jason Clark, John Jacobs, Seth MacFarlane and Scott Stuber
Written By: Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild
Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Seth MacFarlane (voice), Amanda Seyfried

Ted 2 picks up at Ted (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and Tami-Lynn’s (Jessica Barth) wedding, which we quickly learn is taking place just six months after John (Mark Wahlberg) and Lori (Mila Kunis) were divorced.   The thunder buddies seem to be on opposite sides of the emotional spectrum, and then we’re distracted by an extremely dragged out musical sequence during the opening credits. The film then picks up one year later, where we see Ted and Tami-Lynn’s marriage seemingly falling apart. Ted is convinced the only way to rectify their marriage is to have a child. There’s just one small problem…Ted is not anatomically correct. After a failed attempt at collecting Tom Brady’s sperm, John volunteers to be the couple’s sperm donor. John and Ted begin to joke around in the donor room and John ends up covered in rejected sperm, thus ending their plan to have Tami-Lynn artificially inseminated.

This issue seems minimal when, after attempting to adopt a child, Ted discovers the state of Massachusetts believes he’s property rather than an actual person. The couple is unable to have their own child, unable to adopt, Ted is stripped of his job at the food store and their marriage is annulled. Facing defeat, John convinces him to fight back. They seek out a civil rights attorney and are introduced to a pot smoking Sam (Amanda Seyfried). The trio engages in research, re-enacting dances from The Breakfast Cluband smoking pot in the local library. Unwilling to lose, Sam turns to one of the top civil rights attorneys, Patrick Meighan (Morgan Freeman), who agrees to meet with them in his office in New York.

In New York, they meet with the Meighan, and he turns down their case. Clearly upset, Ted runs away from John and Sam and heads right for the New York Comic Con. He’s captured by Donny (Giovanni Ribisi), the creepy janitor, who has been co-conspiring with the head of Hasbro to mass produce Ted dolls. Wanting a Ted of his own, Donny duct tapes Ted to a table and is about to cut him open to see what makes him tick when John and Sam arrive and save him. Donny chases John, Sam and Ted through the awesomely nerdy Comic Con!

As with the first Ted film, there are the literal laughing out loud moments and there are the somber, almost corny moments. In typical Ted fashion, expect borderline inappropriate racist jokes and an abundant amount of F-bombs throughout. Despite some dragged out scenes, I’d say it was a decent sequel. Amanda Seyfriend was a nice addition, and the cameos by Tom Brady, Liam Neeson and Morgan Freeman were great! Mark Wahlberg is hilarious and it was also nice to see Johnny Drama as a security guard at Comic Con. If you enjoy crude humor and repeat offenses, Ted 2 might just be for you.

Ted 2 was released in theaters on June 26, 2015. Check it out for yourself, and let me know what you think!

EL ARDOR, JULY 17, 2015:

14A visually sumptuous adventure about a mysterious man who emerges from the Argentinian rainforest to rescue a family from ruthless land-grabbers bent on stealing their farm, Ardor is written and directed by Pablo Fendrik (Blood Appears, The Mugger), and stars Gael García Bernal (No, Motorcycle Diaries) and Alice Braga (I Am Legend, City of God) working together for the first time since their collaboration in Fernando Meirelles’ Blindness.  Ardor made its world premiere as an Official Selection at the Cannes Film Festival.


Long Synopsis:

When fires sweep through the forest near their property along the Parana River, a tobacco-farming family goes on high alert. João suspects the fire is a result of slash-and-burn tactics by thugs intent on acquiring the farm he shares with his daughter, Vania, and her partner, Jara. Help arrives in the form of Kaí, an enigmatic stranger.

When the violence of the land-grabbers’ assault catches the family off guard, the men force João to sign over his farm and kidnap Vania. Undetected by the assailants, Kaí goes on the offensive but with the hornet’s nest now stirred, Kaí, Vania and Jara must decide how far they will go to preserve the farm and their vanishing way of life.

EL ARDOR, 17 DE JULIO DE 2015

Ardor es una aventura espléndida a nivel visual sobre un hombre misterioso que emerge de la selva argentina para rescatar a una familia de unos despiadados desforestadores que están decididos a robarles su granja. La película fue escrita y dirigida por Pablo Fendrik (La sangre brota, El asaltante) y está protagonizada por Gael García Bernal (No, Diarios de Motocicleta) y Alice Braga (I Am Legend, Ciudad de Dios), quienes trabajan juntos por primera vez desde su colaboración en Blindness, de Fernando Meirelles. Ardor tuvo su premier mundial como parte de la Selección Oficial del Festival de Cine de Cannes.

Sinopsis Extendida:

Cuando el fuego arrasa con el bosque cerca de su propiedad junto al Río Paraná, una familia que tiene una plantación de tabaco entra en alerta roja. João sospecha que el fuego es el resultado de una estrategia de tala y quema implementada por unos rufianes que están decididos a apropiarse de la granja que comparte con su hija, Vania, y su socia, Jara. La ayuda llega con Kaí, un enigmático extraño.

La violencia del ataque de los desforestadores toma por sorpresa a la familia y los hombres obligan a João a ceder la propiedad de su granja y secuestran a Vania. La presencia de Kaí pasa desapercibida y este ataca a los agresores, pero ahora que el avispero está alborotado, Kaí, Vania y Jara deberán decidir cuán lejos están dispuestos a llegar para preservar la granja y su forma de vida, que está desapareciendo.
