Ted: A Flickcharter’s Movie Review

Nicholas Vargo

My name is Nicholas Vargo and I live in La Mesa, California, a suburb of San Diego. Even though the amount of movies I have seen might not show it completely, I am one of the biggest movie buffs out there - even though I know I still have many, many movies out there that I need to see. Still, my love of movies remain the backbone of my life. I have a BA in English from ASU and am currently looking for new work opportunities. Some of the other things I like to do in my spare time are playing Wii and even something as simple as organizing my movie collection. I hope to one day become a published film critic - if the job title is still available. You can find me on Flickchart as NicholasVargo, so feel free to add me as a friend if you like.

    How would you say the film delivered in terms of what the trailer promised? Wasn’t too taken by the trailer, but I’ve been reading more and more reviews that are pretty positive on this one.

      I would say yes and no. While both trailers do give you a sense of what it’s about, the subplots about Giovanni Ribisi and Joel McHale are never even hinted at, but yet the film is also way more than its trailers. It promises everything you got and way more in return. Still, I would have saw it even if the trailer was terrible only because Seth MacFarlane was due for a comeback. I also neglected to mention a number of its funny scenes because I want people to go in and see for themselves what’s so good about it. Despite my issues with Ribisi and McHale, I laughed hard and often.

      Hrm. Maybe I was a bit quick to dismiss it, then. Will still probably wait for it to go on video, especially since the next couple of weeks are going to be kind of busy in terms of the major releases. Definitely curious to see it, though.
