Hubies Halloween

‘Hubies Halloween’ is a 2020 Netflix comedy exclusive from Happy Madison Productions. Anytime you see Happy Madison Productions you know Adam Sandler is bringing the whole crew, I love it. It’s like watching ‘American Horror Story’ and seeing what character your favorite actor/actress is playing this season. ‘Hubies Halloween’ stars Kevin James, Steve Buscemi, Rob Schneider, Maya Rudolph, Jackie Sandler, and the Big man himself Shaq, as per usual as most his movies. Outside the normal crew it also stars Ben Stiller (Dodgeball), Kenan Thompson (Kenan & Kel), Tim Medows (Son of Zorn), Ray Liotta (Goodfellas), Michael Chiklis (Gotham), and Julie Brown (Modern Family). This cast is loaded.

‘Hubies Halloween’ follows Hubie (Sandler), a man who has been bullied by the entire town his whole life. Nevertheless, he still loves his town and feels it’s his duty to protect its citizens when weird things start happening on Halloween.

‘Hubies Halloween’ is a lighthearted, feel good, Halloween movie, think along the lines of ‘Ernest Scared Stupid’, but mixed with ‘The Warriors’, and ‘Halloween.’ Adam Sandler brings back his ‘Little Nicky’ style voice, which is a little annoying at times, it makes it hard to understand what he’s saying. I find Adam Sandler funnier without the voice, but some people might like it for nostalgia sake. I’m not one of those people. It’s also not as funny as I was hoping it would be, but in the end it pulls it all together, and teaches us to love one another no matter how different we are. I give it a 5.5/10

The King of Staten Island

‘The King of Staten Island’ is a 2020 comedy/drama staring Pete Davidson, which it’s semi based off his life. It also stars Bel Powley (Wildling), Marisa Tomei (My Cousin Vinny), Maude Apatow (Knocked Up), Bill Burr (F is for Family), and Steve Buscemi (Reservoir Dogs).

I’ll start of by saying Pete Davidson is a controversial guy, you either love him or hate him. I personally love him, he seems like such a down to earth guy, and I find his don’t give a crap humor hilarious. I first found out about Pete Davidson when Barstool Sports started making fun of him for having “Butthole eyes”, which Davidson addressed in his Netflix comedy special, it didn’t even phase him. Along side Davidson, ‘The King of Staten Island’ stars comedic powerhouse Bill Burr. Burr is on the raunchy side of comedy but is another hilarious comic, so naturally I figured this movie would be hilarious. It’s a bit on the long side it’s almost two and a half hours, and it’s different that what I was expecting. It’s not very funny, it has a few funny moments, but it is more on the drama side. Tomei, Davidson, and Burr really nail there roles, especially Davidson, you can’t help but love him and just want to give the guy a hug after this movie. It’s a must see this summer, I give it a 8/10.
