My fav films 2014 – the best laugh

when a Vampire has to do the dishwashing

WHAT WE DO IN THE SHADOWS had me literally rolling on the floor laughing my proverbial behind off – this can be embarrassing in a crowded cinema, so brace yourselves. As funny Vampires go, THERAPY FOR A VAMPIRE gave me some hilarity too. I did leave the movie theatre with a wide grin on my face after PING PONG SUMMER , and my “evil-smirk-award” goes to NIGHTCRAWLER, with MAPS TO THE STARS as a close second. As best Deutsche Komödie I remember MÄNNERHERZEN UND DIE GANZ GANZ GROSSE LIEBE – and some very funny short films such as US-short PENNY DREADFUL and Norwegian “road-movie” HAIKEREN about two guys literally running circles around each other. WISH I WAS HERE had its funny moments, and – as Oldies go – R.I.P.D. was quite a chuckle.

Not so much, huh! Why is it so hard to make us laugh? I bet my next wrap ups about what made me cry – and what made me think – are much longer …
