After watching "Chucky" back when I was a kid, I've always been afraid of movies where toys are alive. Heck, I still get nervous when my nieces and nephews watch all the "Toy Story" movies! I just find it so creepy, the thought of inanimate objects moving and speaking. But when I saw "Ted," my perspective changed!
The movie was hilarious, to say the least! It was crass, outrageous, and downright offensive. Sorry not sorry but it was my kind of humor! I initially didn't plan to watch it because of the premise—a talking teddy bear? I'm out!—but my autograph-hounding forced me to go to the premiere. He's been going to these sorts of things for a couple of years now, meeting celebrities and getting their autographs. Not gonna lie, when I saw the huge stars he's gotten autographs from, I started getting jealous. So I figured I'd join him this time and see him in action.
As I expected, red carpet premieres were loud, hectic, and kinda annoying. Even though I was starting to think that I'd like to try my hand at autograph-hounding, seeing all that craziness in person instantly threw me off! It wasn't until I saw how my cousin enjoyed his passion that I thought that it might be interesting.
He had no qualms approaching the cast members of the movie, even though they were big-named celebs! I was most impressed at how wasn't intimidated by Mark Whalberg at all. I mean, the guy looks buff on screen, but in real life? He was jacked! It probably doesn't register as much in pictures and on-screen but seeing him in real life, you could tell he can beat anyone to a pulp if they cross him the wrong way. Luckily for my cuz, Wahlberg was in a good mood that night. Well, he probably won't beat anyone up in front of a lot of people, but still!
I, on the other hand, went full-on fanboy at Seth McFarlane! Can you blame me? The man's a genius! I grew up watching his shows: "Family Guy," "American Dad," and the like! And now he's venturing into the 'toys-becoming-alive' genre? Now that's a risk! And I'm sure glad he did because it paid off! Whoever doesn't realize this man's genius is stupid! Hollywood should be grateful that it found a talented gem like him! Offended by his jokes? Well, who the fu** cares!? McFarlane's the man! I still can't believe I met him in person!
By the end of the night, to my complete surprise, my cousin got most of the cast's autographs. That's how awesome he is at this thing! As for the movie? I've already mentioned it—five stars!! I have a newfound respect for Hollywood and the autograph-hounds who keep the hype alive!
