Those Who Can't - Amazon Originals Pilot

Those Who Can't - Amazon Originals Comedy Pilot Poster
Recently I posted some of my thoughts on the recent Amazon Comedy Pilot Episodes for Zombieland and Alpha House as well as the concept of the pilot scheme itself.

I only got chance to watch a handful of these pilot shows myself, but here are my thoughts on the third one - Those Who Can't.

Alpha House - Amazon Originals Pilot

Alpha House - Amazon Comedy Pilots Poster

Yesterday I posted some of my thoughts on the recent Amazon Comedy Pilot episode of the Zombieland TV Series.  Needless to say, I was probably more impressed with the concept of Amazon opening up these shows to streaming audiences to get a vibe for which shows might get a possible green light than the Zombieland show itself.

I watched a few other comedy pilots around the same time, so in this post I'm going to give some brief thoughts on the second show I watched - Alpha House staring John Goodman.

Zombieland TV Series - Amazon Originals Pilot

Zombieland - Cancelled TV Series Poster

Okay, so it was a few months back now, but Amazon/LoveFilm were running a Pilot season where you could stream a bunch of new 20-30 minute comedy shorts, then submit your feedback and influence which ones get made into a full season.

Probably the most high-profile or most recognizable show from the list was the Zombieland pilot - a 29 minute comedy based on the movie staring Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Emma Stone & Abigail Breslin.  Sadly none of those stars appear in this pilot.  So here are are some of my thoughts on the hopeful show.

My Sex Life in Movie Titles - Which One Are You?

My Sex Life in Movie Titles - The movie poster for The Break-Up just about sums up this post with Jennifer Aniston in bed with Vince Vaughn

This week on twitter there was a fun little "Trending Topic" called #My Sex Life In Movie Titles.  There were lots of funny suggestions by the people joining in the conversation who seemed to find a common theme of failure in the bedroom with movie titles such as Clueless, Home Alone, 40 Year Old Virgin or Gone in 60 Seconds.

On the other end of the scale there were the optimistic movie titles like The Dark Knight Rises, 127 Hours, I Am Legend & The Longest Yard, or the just plain dark but very funny ones such as There Will Be Blood or You're Next.

Needless to say, there were some hilarious responses but a lot of people seemed to be saying the same movies over and over, so I decided to take some of their best ideas and create my own comprehensive list of Sex Life in Movie Titles here.
