This movie was awesome. One of my top favorite movies of all time. The story was perfect, the visuals were perfect, and my lack of knowledge about the movie was perfect. I knew nothing about the movie before seeing it and I’m glad. I was surprised by everything including Ellen Page. I don’t want to spoil anything about the movie, so I’m not going into detail here. I just wanted to give it my star rating and tell everyone to watch it.
Rating: +1 for being that awesome.

I had a great time watching this movie. Notice I didn’t say this was a great movie. I would explain this movie as exactly the same as She’s Out of My League with magic added. Basically Nicolas Cage is a sorcerer looking for “Neo”. Once he finds “the one” he starts fighting his arch-nemesis to save the world from being taken over by zombies. Jay Baruchel is “the one” but is also in love with a hot girl he shouldn’t really have a chance with. Throw in a couple more love stories, some fake science, a few huge Tesla coils and BAM! you have just made this movie.
I went to see it with Alii and Strages. Alii was a hoot, she was laughing hard at every little thing. It made the movie experience great. Strages and I were just floored by the ridiculousness of the movie.

I went to see Iron Man 2 over the weekend. I hadn’t seen it yet simply because I didn’t feel like fighting with a bunch of people opening weekend, and I was out of town for a while. Anyways I went to see is Sunday night at The Monaco.
First let me say, holy shit Scarlett Johansson hot. I just couldn’t keep from staring at her. Then the scene with her changing in the back seat! Oh man, just awesome.
Anyways, on to the film. I liked the film but thought the first Iron Man was better. This one seemed too “comic book like” is the only way I can describe it. I know that probably doesn’t make sense, but I don’t know how to explain it. I didn’t like how “I know best for the world” Tony Stark was. Also I didn’t like how through the entire movie broken glass was treated like confetti! Everywhere you looked glass was being broken, but not a sole was hurt by falling shards of glass. How many times do you think you can blow up a bottle of wine at a party before someone gets hurt. I’m guessing it’s like once. Not Iron Man, he just keeps blowing shit up.
Now I really dug Samuel L. Jackson. The scene with Samuel L. Jackson and Iron Man sitting having breakfast in a dinner was just awesome. It was reminiscence of the dinner scenes in Pulp Fiction.
So in conclusion I liked the movie, it was very entertaining but I felt the first one was better. Not by much mind you, just enough to give this one a 4.5 instead of 5 like I would have giving the fist one if I had seen it in the theater.

A couple weeks ago I was finally able to see this movie. I had seen the previews and heard all the good reviews, so I was very much looking forward to seeing it. I’m glad I didn’t wait until the DVD for this one.
The movie starts out as a very geeky comedy. Boy likes comic books a lot and wants to be a super hero. Then it turned violent. Boy tries to become a super hero and fails. After this, the movie kind of turns into a dark comedy. You start laughing at people getting shot, and how ridiculous some parts of the movie are. By the end you are laughing your ass off at a dude getting his head blown off by a shot gun. If you think this is a geeky comedy, then hold on to your seats because it turns dark quickly.

Again really late. Opening night I gathered about 10 people to see this movie, and what a great movie it is. It’s great if you are into comedies. Many funny jokes, as well as some stupid ones. The movie has John Cusack in it, how can it be bad?
