  • “One Day” Movie Review

      The reason I go to the movies, and read, is to be transported to a world not connected with reality.  A mini-vacation.  A state-of-mind where I can be an ape leading a revolution, a plain man learning how to pick up beautiful women, a skinny kid super hero, a chubby zookeeper talking with animals, […]

  • “Zoolander” Movie Review

    “Zoolander” Movie Review

    We watched this on VUDU. Ben Stiller (as Derek Zoolander) is the top male model in the world.  Unfortunately, his brain power does not match his looks and this makes him the perfect person to train to assassinate the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Will Ferrell (as mega designer Jacobim Mugatu) is off the wall bad in this […]

  • Lu Chen Magician

    Chau sent me this a few days ago.  Amazing!  I wonder how he does this…. For more on Lu Chen, go to this WikiPedia article on him. — — Drive Safe!  Never Forget.

  • “He’s just not that into you” Movie Review

    “He’s just not that into you” Movie Review

     (Confusing, Scarlett Johansson) — — We watched this on VUDU. A cast full of stars agonizing over the fact that if a guy wants to call you back (or marry you), he will.  If he does not want to call you back (or marry you) he won’t. DUH. A fun movie, funny in parts, angst […]

  • “Cowboys & Aliens” Movie Review

     (intriguing mix, great action, scary aliens) — — With all the negative reviews I have been hearing…I was hesitant to go see “Cowboys & Aliens” in the movies.  Truthfully…I have no idea what movie those other people watched….I saw a GREAT movie! There are three unique aspects of “Cowboys & Aliens”: 1. It is, as […]

  • “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” Movie Trailer

    Coming in December 2011.  Looking soooo forward to this one! — — Drive Safe!  Never Forget.

  • “Take Me Home Tonight” Movie Review

    (fun coming of age movie) — — We watched this on VUDU and really enjoyed it.  If I would have known how good this movie was when we went to see the awful “Rango”, we would have seen this movie instead. It’s 1988, and recent MIT engineering graduate, Topher Grace (as Matt Franklin) is working […]

  • “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” Movie Review

    “Rise of the Planet of the Apes” Movie Review

     (tense, frightening, realistic) — — James Franco (as Will Rodman) is a brilliant scientist testing the effects of a drug he has developed to, hopefully, cure Alzheimer’s.   The mission is personal since his father (the brilliant John Lithgow as Charles Rodman) has that disease. Franco’s latest breakthru is a chimp named “Bright Eyes”.  But something […]

  • “Crazy Stupid Love” Movie Review

    “Crazy Stupid Love” Movie Review

    We have seen a number of great movies lately.  When you are swept away in a world of fantasy for 2 hours while the cares of the real world drift away…that is a great movie. This is a great movie, complete with the most surprising twists I have seen, and the funniest 7 or 8 […]
