Moonrise Kingdom

moonrise-kingdom-poster1

Moonrise Kingdom is a movie by Wes Anderson. Love Wes Anderson. As usual, you can tell this is his movie. It’s always done a certain way and he really sets up the scene so you pay attention to everything. It just looks awesome. There is the usual Bill Murray in this movie which I throughly …

21 Jump Street is a comedy re-make featuring Jonah Hill and Channing Tatum with a hint of Ice Cube. I saw the preview for this movie and thought it was probably going to be terrible but reviews of it said otherwise so we went to see it. This movie was hilarious. Brent and I left …

The Hunger Games

the hunger games

The Hunger Games is the first in a series of movies to come based on the books by Suzanne Collins. Oh YA novels made in to movies, how I love thee. I hear they are breaking this 3 book series in to 4 movies (a la Twilight) but that’s dumb. These three books aren’t even …

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy

Tinker Tailor

Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy is based on a book and stars Gary Oldman, Colin Firth, and Tom Hardy. Who doesn’t love those first two actors? Amazing! It’s the Cold War and there seems to be a Soviet spy among the MI6. Who better to bring back from retirement to figure this whole thing out? Well …

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (English Version)

girl with the dragon tattoo

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo with Daniel Craig and Mara Rooney has finally arrived. So exciting…with soundtrack by Trent Reznor. Amazing combination. One thing that I found kinda strange but still really liked was the intro sequence. It seemed like a NIN music video with a Led Zeppelin remake song. It was like watching …

Breaking Dawn: Part 1

Breaking Dawn Part 1

Breaking Dawn: Part 1…what can I say…I love me some terrible acting or maybe it’s just that Bella looks perpetually unhappy or in some sort of pain. I think she had a total of 5 min of happiness even though she got married to her beloved Edward in this movie. Does this show my love/hate …

Moneyball

Moneyball

Moneyball is about Billy Beane (Brad Pitt) who is the general manager of the Oakland A’s and his new thought process to use statistics to create a successful baseball team. Jonah Hill was also a big character in the movie but from looking up some info on wikipedia it seems his character is semi-fake. At …

Senna

Senna

Senna is a movie about Ayrton Senna, a formula 1 driver, that died tragically in a race at the young age of 34. He was also a 3 time world champion of formula 1 so he was very good at what he did. He was really big in the late 80s early 90s and is …

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2

harry potter and the deathly hallows part 2

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 is the last movie of the series. I don’t know why it took me so long to write about it. It has been quite an adventure and I can’t believe I got Brent to go to all the movies with me. Now I just need to own …

Bridesmaids

Bridesmaids

OMG (according to the woman I sat next to in the theater…along with her over the top laughing and stomping feet) Bridesmaids is a hilarious albeit crude movie. It is co-written and starring Kristen Wiig, who is amazing. It also stars Maya Rudolph, Rose Byrne, and some other ladies. There is also love interest with …
