Iâ€™ve not been watching movies like I used to watch them, mainly in part because of Tivo and the three or four hours of TV that I usually have waiting for me each evening. Donâ€™t worry, I donâ€™t watch every episode of Trading Spaces or Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. I just like to keep recording them in case I need something to watch. Because my 200+ DVDs couldnâ€™t possibly be enough.
Derailed (courtesy of Netflix) â€“ It took me two tries to watch this. The first time â€“ I watched the first 20 minutes, and the last seven minutes. The result? I thought the movie was stupid. But when I sat down to watch it last night all the way through? Super awesome.
I love Jennifer Aniston. Without spoiling the end of the movie for you if you havenâ€™t seen it, I really like her in darker roles! The Good Girl? Thaaaaaatâ€™s not Rachel from Friends! And thatâ€™s what I like about her in non-comedic movies.
The movie screws with your head, at least it did mine. It also made me question why people love Clive Owen so much. I didnâ€™t really. But it is a good movie.
Just Friends â€“ I donâ€™t like Ryan Reynolds too much, but watching him lip-sync â€œI Swearâ€ while wearing a fat-suit kind of made up for my dislike. It was kind of a weird movie. In some scenes, you wanted to cheer for the main character and in other scenes you seriously wanted to kick him right in the throat.
In the end, I really loved it. It made me go â€œawwwwwâ€ at the end and also made me throw up in my mouth, but in a good way.
The Benchwarmers â€“ PeeWee wanted to know what I thought of this, but that was a couple of weeks ago. But hereâ€™s the damn review!
I love David Spade, I love Rob Schneider, and I love the kid that plays Napoleon Dynamite. But I donâ€™t love them together. If the Napoleon kid would have played role that was may just the ever bit slightly different then the his previous cult-followed role, then it may have been entertaining. But I kept waiting for Uncle Rico to pull up in his van, and I hate it when movies overlap that bad.
It was funny, it was about baseball, and there were midgets in it. I donâ€™t know how a movie could get anymore entertaining. Be warned: itâ€™s stupid humor. Itâ€™s a Happy Madison film, so donâ€™t go into it thinking thereâ€™s a deep story line or a soul-wrenching plot, because thereâ€™s not. Thereâ€™s crude, foul, disgusting, and completely wrong humor. Thatâ€™s probably why I liked it so much.
