Ted

Ted

Starring: Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis, Laura Vandervoort, Giovanni Ribisi

Director: Seth MacFarlane

Release Date: 13 July 2012

 This might be the most offensive movie on my list and maybe the funniest. That is if you like raunchy humor and sophomoric humor. Which I do. This is the first live action movie written and directed by Seth MacFarlane the man behind Family Guy, the Cleveland Show and American Dad. MacFarlane also provides the voice for, Ted, the animated bear in the movie. He also did the acting for the bear that was captured via motion sensor cameras.

 The premise is real simple. What if you had a Teddy bear that came to life as a kid and promised to stay with you all of your life? But then you grew up…well sort of. Ted and John, played by John Mark Wahlberg lead a charmed life until John decides it is time to grow up. Well, John’s decision to grow up is encouraged by Lori the girl of his dreams whom he just began dating. Lori is played by the lovely Mila Kunis who played Jackie on the Fox sitcom, That 70s Show, and also voices the character Meg Griffin on MacFarlane’s hit animated comedy Family Guy.

 I really am looking forward to this. I enjoy Family Guy immensely and Ted seems to have a similar style as far as comedy goes. I have also read that this movie isn’t just an excuse for raunchy comedy it also has a heart.

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
