“I’m the black MacGyver, BlaGyver”: The Losers

Five super studly hot guys and Zoe Saldana being awesome. Thank you, Christina, for convincing me to watch this. This was yet another film that I accidentally fell asleep during, but in my own defense, it was Thanksgiving and I was in a turkey coma.  I only slept through like 20 minutes of it, though, … Continue reading “I’m the black MacGyver, BlaGyver”: The Losers

Someone else’s much better explanation: The Last Airbender

Nope.  I surely did not see The Last Airbender.  It looks like a terrible kids' movie, and from everything I've heard, that's exactly what it is. I'd imagine if I ever saw it, it would go a little something like this... Someone else's most likely completely accurate review of a movie I am not going … Continue reading Someone else’s much better explanation: The Last Airbender

“I feel fraudlent”: I’m Still Here

I'm pretty sure Joaquin Phoenix has mental health issues.  I'm like 98% positive.  He definitely needs to seek medical attention of some sort. I don't really know what to say about this film.  I'm convinced this whole thing was just a hoax for the sake of this film.  I'm Still Here, however, does everything it … Continue reading “I feel fraudlent”: I’m Still Here

“What’s his problem?”: The Expendables

Have you ever told a joke that you didn't actually understand the punchline yourself?  That's what this movie is.  Someone told Sly Stallone, "Hey, you know what would be a really great movie?  If you got all you old mother fucker action stars together, and made a sort of tongue-in-cheek action movie." So he tried … Continue reading “What’s his problem?”: The Expendables

“Everything that’s important gets cleaned”: Eat Pray Love

It's official.  Julia Roberts has the biggest mouth ever.  Not metaphorically speaking; I mean literally.  Her mouth is physically huge, and I think this movie is really just a showcase for that. When she smiles, it's huge and bright and wonderful.  When she's sad, it's the largest frown ever recorded.  Check Guinness.  It's a fact.  … Continue reading “Everything that’s important gets cleaned”: Eat Pray Love

Blast from the past: Quiz Show

I had never even heard of this movie before we watched it in class, but it came out in 1994 and was nominated for four Oscars, including Best Picture and Best Script.  I didn't realize Robert Redford was a director, either, but that's an impressive title to add to the list:  actor/producer/dessert namesake/director. All in … Continue reading Blast from the past: Quiz Show

“You like me, huh?”: The Misfits

I questioned whether or not I should do a post about this film.  It had such an effect on my psyche and mood, I didn't know if I wanted to revisit it.  Then I realized that's why The Misfits is so amazing.  Sometimes I need to challenge myself, because that is merely a dare to … Continue reading “You like me, huh?”: The Misfits

Blast from the past: In America

This was the first film I ever watched in a college level film class.  We watched it twice, actually.  It was the first and last film we watched in that class.  I've seen it at least once since then.  Great, great film. Much like Witness, I had to watch the first fifteen minutes on mute.  … Continue reading Blast from the past: In America

“There’s no such thing as a lost cause”: Charlie St. Cloud

This is the movie Zac Efron had to get ripped abs for?  I mean, I ain't mad at him, but why, exactly, did he need more muscles than before to play this role?  One of life's many mysteries. I was pleasantly surprised by Charlie St. Cloud.  I was afraid it would be just an okay … Continue reading “There’s no such thing as a lost cause”: Charlie St. Cloud
