Movie Review: The Magic of Belle Isle

This is another Redbox gem that my girlfriend and I came across. It's the story of an ex-writer who is being forced to live in this little quiet neighborhood for the summer by his nephew, and plays out the interactions between he and the neighbors, particularly the family next door.

Now this is no "Inception" so the plot really doesn't get very deep and about 10 minutes in you can probably tell whats going to happen, that being said, when I come across movies like this I then need something else to keep me intrigued in lieu of having plot twists. This movie delivered in that respect 10 fold! The writing and the acting in this movie were remarkable in my opinion, even the child actors were very good.

I wont give you any "spoilers" but I will give you my favorite line of the movie, the main character, Monty (Morgan Freeman) is in charge of the dog that resides at the house he is staying at. On their way back home from dinner next door Monty tells the dog "Your behavior tonight was exemplary, in response I've decided to lift the ban on farting."

All around the movie was awesome and left me wanting more. Morgan Freeman and usual was amazing and they surrounded him with an array of spectacular characters and had a good enough story too keep you entertained, and not too cheesy to turn you off.

Two thumbs up from this blogger!

Movie Review: Red Dawn

In this film, the North Koreans have managed to invade and take over the entire United States.

This movie was terrible, don't waste your time streaming it, buying it, redboxing it, thinking about it, or even reading this blog about it at this point.

That is all I have to say.

Movie Review: Kick-Ass 2

So I watched this movie last night and I was not disappointed! Often times with silly movies like these, the sequel ends up being so much dumber than the first that you wonder why they even bothered (see dumb and dumberer), but the creators of this franchise did a good job of creating a interesting plotline derived from the first movie, and still playing on comic book lore (i.e. obtaining the will power to be a hero from tragedy).

I did NOT know previous to starting the movie last night that Jim Carrey was in the movie! It was a happy surprise, and I was even more pleased to see him in a not so normal role for himself (see dumb and dumber and Ace Ventura, even "The Truman Show" lent itself to Carrey's particular brand of acting). He was able to speak with a very deep southern type accent, and to my knowledge the first role where he fires a weapon!

Overall the movie was entertaining, not going to be wining any oscars or golden globes, hell it probably wont even win a teen choice award but if you want to be entertained, than I would go check this film out! It's on redbox now!

What Will I Read Here?

Most of my blogging has to deal with weight loss, if you can tell from the tag cloud above. I didn't want to use my blog to just be like "oh, here is what I did over the weekend," my life isn't that interesting. Instead I began this blog in hopes of expressing a lot of the thoughts I have about my own life and life in general, as well as share a lot of the humerous things I see out on the net including chat conversations. This blog might seem random and all over the place but serves as a great deal of inspiration not only formyself, but it would seem for a few others. If you have come here I hope you are either inspired, or at least entertained. Enjoy!
