I'm sure "real" movie critics have a lot of arguments against the supposed greatness of this film. They always do. They can suck my balls. This movie was awesome. All I knew going into it was that everyone seemed completely mindfucked by the film, and "It's about dreams." Well, that's helpful. If you are still … Continue reading “Give him the kick”: Inception
For the select few out there who care, I'm sorry I've been terribly unmotivated and have failed to write any reviews in more than a week. Sometimes lazy wins. Especially in winter, as I'm learning. But about this movie. Three minutes into Going the Distance, my cheeks were already sore from laughing so much. … Continue reading “This isn’t a mustache; it’s a time machine”: Going the Distance
I really think this movie should be called Scott Pilgrim vs. the Universe. It sounds cooler. I guess "World" is fine. It's just rhetoric, but connotations are important. It doesn't change how awesome this movie is. It's time for more full disclosure here: I watched this movie while writing my Grown Ups review, eating lunch, … Continue reading “I just spilled hot cocoa on my crotch”: Scott Pilgrim vs. the World
I swear this movie's conception came about by Adam Sandler sitting down and saying to himself, "What kind of movie does Deanna want to see?" Let me start by explaining the awesomeness of this cast. I love them. I love them all. I will now list the cast of Grown Ups, in order, from least … Continue reading “If Elvis was an Oompa Loompa, he’s right in front of me”: Grown Ups
Sarah Friesz, we can be friends again. I have finally seen The Princess and the Frog. I liked it. Maybe a lot. But I think I had too high of hopes for this movie. It's no Beauty and the Beast, but then again, what is? Well, The Lion King was, sort of. As oddly realistic … Continue reading “I think I chipped my favorite tooth”: The Princess and the Frog
Glory, glory Hallelujah. For various reasons, I was prevented from actually seeing this movie when it was in the theaters. But alas, I have finally seen it! I heard from various sources that this movie was disappointing, not as good as the first, and more like an episode of the show than a movie. To … Continue reading “Twenty dollars for shoes?”: Sex and the City 2
Holy crap. I thought I knew what I was getting myself into watching this movie. I was wrong. Having been too young to understand what was going on when this was actually happening during the 1990s, I had no idea exactly what Jack Kevorkian did. Of course, thanks to I Love the 90s, I did … Continue reading “Terminally ill is an undefinable term”: You Don’t Know Jack
The Rizzos are not just another dysfunctional family. They are, perhaps, the most interesting and attractive dysfunctional family I've ever seen. Certainly more attractive than the Conners.
Are you as tired as I am of comedians making the same Irish-Korean jokes? Yeah, I didn't think so. In fact, I didn't know Irish-Koreans existed. I mean, theoretically I figured there is a combination of every type of heritage imaginable, but that is just one of those combos that never really crossed my mind. But here is comedian Steve Byrne, living proof that Irish-Koreans exist.
