She's the Man

I should have seen this movie a long time ago.

It was FUNNY.

I hate Amanda Bynes on principle, but in this she was hilarious.

Movies in the theaters right now!

In my favorite theater in town, the current ticket price is $11.50.

This is the list of shows playing:

Eat, Pray, Love (I don't want to see it.)

The Expendables (Heard it was terrible. Not surprised.)

Inception (Saw it. Blogged it.)

Lottery Ticket (Rental at best.)

Nanny McPhee Returns (Probably a good kid movie but not something I want to dish out $11.50 for. Sorry, Emma Thompson. [But between you and me, Audrey Hepburn can't act. But nobody cares.])

The Other Guys (Saw it. Blogged it.)

Piranha 3D (Rated R.)

Salt (Saw it. Hated it. Blogged it.)

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (If I wanted to see a movie trying really hard I'd re-watch Titanic.)

The Switch (I want to see this, but it's probably terrible.)

Vampires Suck (My least favorite movie genre is made-in-3-seconds-spoofs. You'd have to pay me to see this movie.... You'd have to pay me a LOT.)

So here's a trivia question for you, which movie genre is my favorite?

Lucas, what are you thinking?

I just finished watching ORIGINAL, original Star Wars, and I must say I've missed it.

There are few things that completely disgust me in this world. This is one of them:

We all know it should look like this.
Why doesn't Lucas know this?

And I know Hayden Christensen has been in Return of the Jedi for a while now, but I'll never, ever, EVER get over it.

Honestly. Lucas... WTH are you thinking?

Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon

I assume most people over 26 have seen this movie. But if you haven't here are some reasons why you ought to.

1. Visual effects.
2. Musical score.
3. Beautiful characters.
4. Lovely plot.
5. Incredible fight scenes. This wasn't the first movie to show people floating over rooftops, but it was ground breaking in the US, much to the same visual way that The Matrix was.

Just remember that when you rent it, be sure to watch it with subtitles in the original Mandarin! (I believe it's Mandarin. I forget.) For the love of Pete! The English-speaking actors who dub their voices do nothing for the movie.

I H8 Valentine's Day

But I love spelling "hate" with numbers.

Anyway, here's a list of things I hate, (besides Valentine's Day.)

1. The movie, I Hate Valentine's Day.
2. Movies that are as slow as snails on pot, (like I Hate Valentine's Day.)
3. Movies that are based on stupid ideas, (like I Hate Valentine's Day.)

We Netflixed this movie. It's actually playing right now. It's not even over, but it's soooooooooooo boring and pointless. Save yourself the pain and Netflix 30 Rock. (It shares some cast members.)

You'll notice I added pictures to the posts, including this one.

You're welcome.

The Other Guys

Don't be late when you see this movie. The best part is the beginning. Samuel L. Jackson and The Rock are hilarious. I want to see a movie starring them in these roles.

Oh, the rest of the movie was funny too, but the first 10 minutes was filled with enough comedy to last me the rest of the movie.

What I could have lived without:
1. The woman behind me who obnoxiously laughed at everything.
2. The woman-behind-me's kid whose vocabulary rivaled the entire US Navy.
3. The man who WHISTLED each and every time a woman in a DRESS was on the screen.

For once in my life I agree with something Entertainment Weekly said about a movie.

I loved this movie. I love all Christopher Nolan movies! But Inception was missing something.

People compare it to The Matrix. While Inception is mind-bending like The Matrix, it's missing The Matrix's sense of humor, romance, and one-liners.

As the book Audition says, many actors (and directors) think that romance is weak. But love is the strongest human emotion, nothing "weak" about it.

An A+ movie has, what I like to call, "moments." You leave the movie thinking, "I love the part where Trinity appears and holds the gun to his head and says, 'dodge this.'" My ONE and ONLY complaint about Inception was that it was void of moments.

The Fight Between Good and Evil

How do people rave about Salt, yet hate Dinner for Schmucks? This notion confounds and confuses my husband and me.

Why Salt was a disaster film:
What's my favorite word? No, not tacky... SLOPPY! My cute little make-believe puppy, Alfred, could have shot a better film. You know that part where they're in the air plane talking, then they cut to the air plane taking off, then they cut back to them talking... ummm, what's the point of that? I'll tell you the point of that... oh wait, no, there is no point, it's just sloppy.

If you felt that the movie completely surprised you, then I don't know what to tell you. It was completely predictable. The major thing they should have changed is to let the audience in. Tell us, "Hey, she's (SPOILER) innocent and this is her plan." Because... we already know her plan. Uck, I hate it when movies think they're fooling you. "Didn't see that coming, did ya!?" Well, actually, everyone saw it coming.

Why Dinner for Schmucks wins the battle:
It was cute. It was funny. It had Steve Carell and it wasn't Evan Almighty. Oh! And it had Roy from The IT Crowd. Thank you!
