The other night I went over to my parents house where mom and I watched Ghost Town on DVD. I remember seeing the previews for Ghost Town and wanting to see it, but 2008 was a busy movie year so I never did. Mom added it to her Netflix queue and the next thing we knew, we had it!

I Love You, Man Review

23 Mar

I know today should be a Wii Fit update, but I haven’t had a chance to take some pictures. So I’m going to skip a week and continue on.

On Friday night my good friend and roommate Rob and I went on a “Man Date.” At least that’s what all my female friends have said it was. We had dinner at Red Brick Pizza at The Loop before catching a movie. First off, Red Brick Pizza, they have the potential to make REALLY good pizza, but it was just WAY too greasy again. The last few times I’ve been there the pizzas come out of the oven with at least 4 or 5 tablespoons of oily mess on top. It really wrecks the pizza. Anyways, on to the movie.

Bee Movie DVD Review

6 Jan

If you check my blog recently you know that yesterday was Free Movie Monday from RedBox and I decided to rent “Bee Movie.” Yes I know, a cartoon for a lonely 27 year old male isn’t the most obvious choice, but I don’t care!

Bee Movie is a DreamWorks picture, so it couldn’t be that bad. The animation, like ALL DreamWorks pictures is amazing and the movie has a TON of stars. It, of course, stars Jerry Seinfeld as the lead character but also includes Renée Zellweger, Matthew Broderick, Megan Mullally, John Goodman, Chris Rock, Kathy Bates, and Patrick Warburton (from my favorite show of all time “The Tick“).

The Curious Case of Benjamin Button Review

On Christmas Day mom, dad and I decided to go to see a movie. There were three movies that we were contemplating going to; Doubt, The Spirit and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. Since the three of us are bad at making decisions, we decided to flip a coin. Mom was flipping and she wanted to see Doubt, so we first flipped between Spirit and TCCoBB eliminating The Spirit, which may have been a blessing in disguise since the reviews have gone downhill. RottenTomoatoes.com has it at only 16% (ouch). Obviously in the final flip Doubt was eliminated. NOTE: The Wikipedia links give away the WHOLE movie. BIG spoilers! I will not spoil anything past the break in this post.

Role Models Review

If you have read any of my other reviews you probably know that I enjoyed this movie. “Role Models” is a comedy starring and written by Paul Rudd. The movie also stars Seann William Scott (you may remember him as Stifler from American Pie), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (McLovin from Superbad), Elizabeth Banks (she is in a lot of movies right now), Jane Lynch (Paula from The 40-Year-Old Virgin) and Bobb’e J. Thompson (who I have never heard of). The movie revolves around what happens when Danny (Rudd) and Wheeler (Scott) get court ordered time being “bigs” in a mentor-ship program called “Sturdy Wings.” The court ordered time is due to Danny’s breakdown after his girlfriend, Beth (Banks), dumps him after a half-hearted proposal attempt.

Zach and Miri Make a Porno Review

7 Nov

On opening night (Halloween) Kori, Joal and I went to see the newest Kevin Smith creation, “Zach and Miri Make a Porno.” Kevin Smith is the famed writer/director of Clerks. This movie contains his normal amount of language with some nudity (hence the porno name) so it earns its “R” rating. For fans, this movie does NOT take place in the “View Askewniverse.” This movie stars Seth Rogen and Elizabeth Banks as Zach and Miri.

War, Inc. Review

My most recent RedBox rental was not using a free promo code I got from my friend on Monday. It was a code that RedBox sent me for filling out a short survey after renting a movie. Yes, I rented a movie for them using a promo code and they sent me a survey about the rental experience in order to give me another promo code for a free rental! I LOVE this company! I decided to rent War, Inc. a newly released (on DVD) movie starring John Cusack. You may not have heard of this movie since the Wiki entry claims it released in only 30 theaters nationwide. I will say that after seeing it, it should have been a MUCH bigger release. This is a good movie.

Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist Review

After renting and watching Juno, Rob and I went to the theater to see Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist. The common denominator in these movies is Michael Cera. This is the third movie I’ve seen of Michael Cera (Superbad and Juno) and its the third time I’ve seen Cera play basically the same role. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, because it comes across as very real. It just sometimes feels like you are seeing the same character in three different movies.
