Keep an eye out on these movies for 2011.
Some of these movies will either make you laugh, anticipate more action, jump from the suspense or say “this could win a couple of awards’.
In no particular order:
The Tree of Life
The Green Hornet
Battle of Los Angeles
The Hangover 2
X-Men: First Class
Cowboys & Aliens
The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo
Of course there are many more to think about, but these are the first that crossed my mind. And, I’ll probably end up mentioning those and these in the near future.
This is what happens when you’re in a relationship…
One day you find yourself saying, “Hey, do you want to see, enter chick flick title here_____________”, and your lady will of course answer with a “Yes”. And, suddenly you’ve established the fact that from this point on, you don’t mind seeing these types of movies. Now here comes the part that will blow your mind…you know like chick flicks.
With a unique cast featuring Mindy Kaling of The Office, Christopher Brian Bridges aka Ludacris, the Swan Queen Natalie Portman, and Demi Moore’s husband Ashton Kutcher you’ll enter this movie questioning if I’m supposed to like this. Within the first three minutes when a conversation segues into “My parents are getting a divorce…Can I finger you”, your ears will suddenly perk up and your interest will be heightened. From this point on the humor becomes even more clever and relevant to situations that you believe can actually occur. If you’re looking for something to see with your lady (which will allow you to see the Mechanic with Jason Statham) this is the perfect movie that a couple or even someone single will enjoy.
No Strings Attached Red Band Trailer:
Working title for my chick flick, where simply the main characters will immediately “catch feelings” and cut out all the time and commitment involved in watching the inevitable conclusion where both parties decide they want one another. Like most genres the formula can always be tweaked to get through the menusha associated with watching someone figure out “oh…I think that I’m in love with you”.
*ALL LITTLE PERSON CAST*
The results of true isolation from the world.
In the first minute of this movie you’ll realize that there is something a little off about these characters. As a young girl presses play on a tape recorder to listen to the lesson plan prepared by her mother, the vocabulary used is to continue the isolation these kids have from reality. Altering the meanings of words so the children aren’t exposed to the ills of the world and continue to be oblivious to the real world around. To continue this necessity to obey their parents the children (who are near to adult age) are given the belief that a brother that they have never seen has been banished to an enclosed area because he decided to disobey his parents. And, therefore increasing the idea in their minds that it’s better to pay attention or they’ll be removed from the family.
Now this may not seem too disturbing at this point but allow me to spoil a little bit more of this
1. To keep the son in check the father hires a girl that works at his job to satisfy the young mans sexual urges.
2. Dimensions have been obscured to a point where these teenagers believe that they can grasp an airplane in the palm of their hands because of course this has been perpetuated by their parents.
3. THEIR GRANDFATHER IS FRANK SINATRA.
I’m sorry I feel as if I’ve said too much…in retaliation of not getting satisfied orally the girl hired to please the son, decides to trick the eldest daughter into going down on her. Which suddenly causes her to reel into rebellion in ways that make you question the pre-production process of a movie, is there absolutely no person around with the gonads to say, “You know what, maybe we should do something else, this feels like a steaming pile of camel feces”. Nope, cut that check and hook me up with a credit.
I think that’s all I’ll say on that. Watch and form your own opinion I guess. For those with Netflix out there it’s a movie that can be watched instantly.
*Garbage always slips through the cracks, somehow this supposed “good” movie got nominated for an Oscar in the Foreign Film category, what a load of shit. Why not just take the Illusionist out of the animated category (since Toy Story has better chances since it’s in that category and Best Picture as well), and put it in Foreign Film so a good movie can actually get this award*
This is what a got from this movie. If you happen to be a lesbian couple that decided at some point you want to have children, and to share that responsibility the both of you will use the same sperm donor specimen to fertilize the egg laying asleep in your belly so your kids will have the same father or the same genes in a sense…make sure the donor isn’t Mark Ruffalo.
On a serious note, this movie displays the great deal of emotion that can occur from introducing your family to the person responsible for the children that you have. The story told here isn’t meant to reflect every family but it’s the unique situation that changed the lives of all the people involved in this “unconventional family”. The acting is superb and I hope everyone involved gets some type of recognition during this time of bestowing awards for a job well done. I’ll allow you to watch it and form your own opinion but trust me you’ll enjoy the outcome.
Kids are All Right Trailer:
This is one of those movies where midway through you try to figure out who got caught with their hand in the cookie jar, you know what I mean. Whose got photos of the director of this movie doing clown porn? Did the writer of this movie hate his childhood, therefore felt like if I can screw around with the mental state of the child actors in this movie than I’ll feel better about myself? Hmmm…I get a sense that I’m not explaining this movie at all, here we go.
Christopher “C-Dub” Wang, wants to play basketball (even though he’s no good at it), cant keep down a job, and happens to be a disappointment to his parents. Through his mischievous actions as a irresponsible bastard, his ping pong prodigy brother and mother get in a car accident and now he is responsible for running his mothers Ping Pong school. Being a comedy I understand having a main character that is flawed but has a good heart as your protagonist. But, this guys is just unlikeable and loud. The story literally goes nowhere, the sudden loser to winner montage is forced, and the over emphasis on Chinese stereotypes as a defense for being an asshole is poorly used. This movie is meant to play in the background as you cook a three course meal, while playing heavy metal music to the max. Skip it and watch Balls of Fury.
A sad day for a trailer:
If you’ve never seen this movie stop what you’re doing. Log off of facebook, close down your twitter, upload in an 1hr and 30mins on tumblr, go to Netflix and watch this movie instantly. You’ll thank me later.
The guy who danced about in a hotel through the musicals powers or Fat Boy Slim, the fella that almost murdered the Batman franchise, the dude who played the host of a roach like alien in Men in Black, and the chap that tried to revitalize life into the Punisher franchise. Come together to tell the story of David Greene, an Irishman who pissed off some Italian gentlemen and want to see him “whacked”.
