You know you want to see this.

The director of 2009’s Zombieland has a new movie coming out called 30 Minutes or Less. 30 Minutes or Less has the director reuniting with Jesse Eisenberg. In this, Eisenberg plays a pizza delivery man who is forced to rob a bank by two men in monkey masks (Danny McBride and Nick Swardson), or else a bomb strapped to his chest will go off. He reluctantly goes to a friend he more or less betrayed (Aziz Ansari) for help.

The Red Band trailer was recently released and yes, the film actually looks as hilarious as its ridiculous premise. Action comedies are usually hit or miss, but I’m hoping this one is more like Pineapple Express than Your Highness.

30 Minutes or Less is set to be released on August 12. Usually, a mid-August release date means a film isn’t very good. However, this will hopefully be good because nothing makes the end of summer a little less depressing than a good comedy with a cast this good.

I don’t know how you spent your spring break, but I spent a very strange part of mine watching “Birdemic: Shock and Terror.” Fans of bad movies everywhere might have already heard of it. Three years after being made, “Birdemic” is finally available for all to see on Netflix. It’s not as bad as the trailer makes it look; it’s worse. Filled with awful special effects, nonsensical dialogue, terrible editing, and an environmental message that sends the environmental movement back about 30 years, few films can top this catastrophe created by James Nguyen.

No bad film has ever made me this angry. After watching “Birdemic,” I felt the need to break my television set, and then watch something good in order for me to regain my grip on what a good movie is.

“Birdemic” might anger you, or possibly bore you to death, but I can’t say you won’t have a good time watching it. Just get a big group of friends together, and prepare to laugh out loud for 90 minutes straight. “Birdemic” will certainly one day earn its place next to the likes of “The Room,” “Troll 2,” and “Plan 9 from Outer Space” as one of the worst movies ever made.

To get a preview of the ridiculousness, watch the trailer after the jump.
