Best of 2014: Movies – Best Comedy

Another year is in the books, and we here at Hush Comics couldn’t pass at the chance to rank our favorites of this year’s releases in all types of mediums. Some of the winners will surprise you; heck, some of the results surprised  us. The results are completely subjective, and therefore were chosen with infallible logic. We would love to hear your opinions on what we have chosen, or if you thought we missed anything. This should be a fun review before we gear up for 2015.

Best Comedy

  • 22 Jump Street
  • A Million Ways to Die in the West
  • Knights of Badassdom
  • Neighbors
  • Sex Tape

WINNER – 22 Jump Street

Let’s be honest.  No one goes to see a Jump Street movie because of the plot. But that doesn’t make the franchise any less hilarious.  This time, cop duo Schmidt and Jenko are working undercover as college students.  While the hijinks were the same, I found this movie funnier than its predecessor because the kids that were doing bad things were actually of age.  Ice Cube was hilarious in this movie, particularly when it came to his daughter.  There were many laugh-out-loud moments, making it our favorite comedy of the year. Plus Channing Tatum never hurts.  – Adrian

Second Place – Neighbors


Although North Korea has made America look like pansies by canceling The Interview with Seth Rogan and James Franco. In 2014, we need to remember we had the next best thing, kinda. We had Neighbors with Seth Rogan, Zac Efron and Dave Franco. This movie was filled with all the classics the world expected out of a Rogan-Franco film; drugs, penises, and the most amazing  dildo sword fight scene known to cinematic history. This film was hilarious, and allowed me to see how non-stressful and unserious the world can be sometimes. Without a doubt, 2014 became a little more comical with Neighbors. – Evan

Third Place – Knights of Badassdom


For 90 minutes (ish), Knights of Badassdom made LARPing the coolest thing in the world – and not in that dickish sarcastic way. What really drew me in were the guest appearances by Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister in Game of Thrones) and Danny Pudi (Abed Nadir in Community), not to mention that Firefly’s Summer Glau is the main love interest. This movie does have a bit of horror mixed in, but it’s much more Tucker & Dave Vs. Evil than Cabin in the Woods. – Sherif

RUNNER UP – A Million Ways to Die in the West


Don’t get me wrong, A Million Ways was not a great movie. It was barely a good movie. However, it was a Seth McFarlane movie, and that much it lived up to. This cast of relatively big names leads a fun adventure with the typical Seth McFarlane-esque humor. There are guest appearances, mustache dances (pictured above) and a lot of innuendo – thank you Jesus for Sarah Silverman. I especially enjoyed the commentary on how primitive a time the Wild West days actually were. People died, a lot. Fun fact: Liam Neeson, who plays the bad guy in the movie, insisted that he keep his Irish accent, only to pay homage to McFarlane’s joke on Family Guy of playing a cowboy with an Irish accent. It’s no coincidence that Seth McFarlane gets to cast a bunch of great actors; these guys love him! – Sherif

RUNNER UP – Sex Tape


One thing is for certain: nobody understands the Cloud. It’s almost like those hackers got their idea from this movie, because damn, how could that timing be any more awkward, right? Aynway, this movie revolves around an aging, but still somehow kind of hot Cameron Diaz and the sex tape she made with Jason Segel. There are tons of penis jokes – I know those are all the rage now – but the funnier part to me are the ones that make fun of how little this generation understands about the technology we use every day; isn’t that right, JLaw? You’re not gonna see anything spectacular here, but Jason Segel fans will still love his comedy. – Sherif

Weekend Wrap-Up…May 11, 2014

Happy Mothers Day to one and all!


And now our geeky presentation of this week’s news…


Hi diddly ho, neighbor! Seth Rogan and Zac Efron’s new comedy, Neighbors, came out Friday.  So far, the reviews are great.

Here is the full trailer for the Street Fighter: Assassin’s Fist web series scheduled for release on May 23rd.

Amazing Spider-Man #1 is the best selling comic in over a decade, beating The Walking Dead #100, Diamond Distributors reported this week.  Perfect timing with the movie release?  Seems like it.

More Better Call Saul casting has been announced, although no one is from Breaking Bad.  But, really, is anyone else not buying that Xfinity ad with Badger in it?  Especially because he is wearing a cardigan?  Really?

In the saddest news of the week, Community was canceled.  There may not be #sixseasonsandamovie, but there is this lovely article chronicling the series and the past season.  And there will always be Troy and Abed in the morning.

Want to know what to expect for next season for all shows?  Check out this handy-dandy guide.

The Flash is official for The CW.

DC’s iZombie is also on the way for The CW.  They may be the best network on basic cable this fall!

An awesome show starring a female lead on ABC?  Looks like Agent Carter is gonna be a real thing!

Fun Frozen fanart!!!

It looks like Han Solo will not be a cameo role in the new Star Wars films, but rather strong supporting roles.

The Flintstones are back.  Or they will be shortly in a newly green-lit animated production out soon.  But the questions begs, do kids now-a-days even know who The Flinstones are?

Norm Wilson to play Wallace’s dad?  Well, sorta.  Reg E. Cathey has joined the cast of the new Fantastic Four as Dr. Storm, father of Johnny Storm.

Even DC is into the old-school pin-up art that is everywhere.  Check out all of their pin-up inspired Bombshell variants!
