If there is one thing you can count on in this world, it’s that John Rambo will never let you down.

Weirdsville

It’s Canadian! Woohoo! Three stoner friends get mixed up with a wannabe-drug dealer and in the process of extricating themselves get mixed up with a group of well-dressed, not-so-smart Satanists at the abandoned drive-in. And then in the process of getting away from the Satanists, they decide to burgle the mansion of an old, handicapped […]

Die Nacht der lebenden Loser (Night of the Living Dorks)

Another zombie movie. This is a German movie, dubbed into English, targeted towards teen boys. It was decent for waht it was. From what I saw on IMDb it looks like they’re planning a North-American version. Yay for us!

Mansfield Park

Ennh! A Jane Austen comedy. The story is decent enough but I’ve always found it slow. I much prefer Pride & Prejudice.

Game Plan

The Rock in a Disney movie about a self-involved star quarter back and the daughter he didn’t know he had. The little girl who plays The Rock’s daughter is impossibly cute and the movie is brimming with wholesome family values. This is a perfect family movie for a Sunday night.

The Pleasure of Your Company (Wedding Daze)

I’m not quite sure what the proper name for this movie is. The trailers and IMDb both refer to it as “The Pleasure of Your Company” but the DVD copy is called “Wedding Daze”. At any rate it’s a funny movie. It stars Jason Biggs and Isla Fisher (the crazy girl from Wedding Crashers) as […]

Hot Rod

This movie is awesome. It’s about a bunch of dorks who try to raise $50,000 to buy Rod’s stepfather a heart operation to save his life. Hot Rod also answers the question: Who would win in a fight, a grilled cheese sandwich or a taco? Every scene is funny in so many ways. This is […]

Life has been hectic around herelately and I’ve been delinquent in my postings. In the interest of catching up in a hurry, I’m going to be short and sweet about it:

No Country for Old Men

Based on the 2005 Cormac McCarthy novel of the same name. Tommy Lee Jones is a tired old sheriff in this modern western. Oscars nominations abound. Watch.

The Big Bad Swim

An indie movie about a group of people who meet at an beginner’s swim class for adults. I enjoyed it but I think most people wouldn’t and for that reason I must say: Pass.

Blonde Ambition

A movie starring Jessica Simpson, produced by Joe Simpson. And Willie Nelson is in it. During it’s opening weekend in the U.S. it grossed $1,771. Dollars. Not thousands of dollars. Dollars! It’s bad. Very bad. People watch this movie for the same reason that people watch train wrecks. Don’t watch.

The Big Empty

An actor named John Person, a cowboy, a free-spirit teenage girl, a lunatic FBI agent and an alien-abduction-truck-stop. Hmmm. This movie had the same feel as The Big Lebowski. If you like quirky movies, watch.

Nancy Drew

Watch.

Across the Universe

A musical. First 30 minutes: “Awesome! This movie is going to be great!” Second 30 minutes: “Huh? I feel like I should be stoned to understand this” Last 30 minutes: “OK, I give up. I don’t think stoned people would be willing to sit through this.” Don’t watch.

Juno

Excellent. The hype is true. “Cautionary whale.” Watch.

2 Days in Paris

If I ever have 2 days in Paris like this I think I would shoot myself. Watching the movie was torture, but I endured it just the same. Don’t let my suffering have been in vain. Don’t watch.

Meet the Robinsons

I’m going to call this one of the best movies of 2007. I added it to my permanent collection. Wartch.

Evening

This will probably be up for an Oscar, simply because of all the big name actors in it. Meryl Streep, Glenn Close, Toni Collette, and Claire Danes. Pass.

Broken English

Nope, can’t remember anything about this movie. Nothing.
