Planet of the Apes: Legacy Collection

I am so psyched right now. Maybe a little too much, but whatever. I’m the proud owner of The Planet of the Apes: Legacy Collection on Blu-ray. ($20 at Walmart? Yes please!)

I’ve only just started the set, but so far it’s fantastic. The image is spectacular (in my lowly opinion) and the movie sounds great. I’m excited to get through all 5 of the movies. Continue reading

Old Boy

OLD BOY TRAILER

This is a remake of a 2003 movie by the same name. It is a hardcore ride. From what I read it is actually massively edited (by the studio) from Spikes original 200 some odd min version. I would love to see his version. It apparently had more character building. I will try to watch the original as well. I’ve read its superior. I personally loved this movie. It is not for the faint of heart. I will make you feel things. NOT all good things. Josh Brolin is of course amazing. The fight scenes are just fun to watch. Netflix is currently streaming it so its easy to come by. I don’t want to say much because its a movie you just have to experience.

How to Train Your Dragon 2

How to Train Your Dragon 2

This movie lived up to every expectation I had. It ran me through every emotion I had and then some. Time has passed and Burke is bigger and better. The scenery is amazing. The new dragons are just wonderful. I can’t wait to buy it so i can see it in 3D. The first movie was one of the best 3D movies I have ever seen and this will be well worth the money. I suggest seeing this in the theater so you can experience the movie in larger than life aspect.

Maleficent Review

In the first real blockbuster of the summer (sarcasm) the classic ‘Sleeping Beauty’ story gets a fun, new twist. Angelina Jolie, as you already know, stars in this wonderful fantasy adventure as the evil, mean-spirited and hateful Maleficent.

Some people probably think, “Oh, it’s Sleeping Beauty. I’ve heard that story a million times.” or “Didn’t Disney already make this movie a million years ago?” Well I’m here to tell you…. Continue reading

Godzilla

Alright. I won’t lie. I was super pumped to see Godzilla. Not only was I a little let down by the 1998 version (come on, it really wasn’t that good (no, not even after watching it as an adult)) BUT after movies like Cloverfield and Pacific Rim, you have to expect amazing-crazy-epic-crap from a movie with this much hype. I mean, you just have to! Right?!

Well, I’m here to tell you…

Wondering about Wanderlust? — A Wanderlust Review

It doesn’t take long, maybe 5 or 10 minutes, before Paul Rudd and Jennifer Anniston bust out the awkwardness. This fantastic piece of romance/comedy/nakedness comes from the people that brought us Role Models (another great Paul Rudd movie).

George (Rudd) and his wife (Anniston) are headed down to Atlanta, or like the kids say, HOTlanta, when they stop by a Bed & Breakfast—which is actually a commune, a society of people living off the earth—and the adventure begins.

IRON MAN 3 REVIEW (and a Lammy update)

Iron Man 3
What can I say about Iron Man 3 that hasn’t already been said? Tony Stark is back and he has some new toys! I thought the first 10 – 15 minutes of this movie moved insanely fast. I felt like I was being pushed through the fun stuff (seeing War Machine Iron Patriot’s new armor for one). I thoroughly enjoyed the action scenes. It was good to see Tony Stark fighting people outside of his suit. It shows that he is able to hold his own without the suit. It’s just a nice upgrade over his normal self. When it came to the last 10 minutes of the movie, I felt things kind of slowed down a bit. It was a strange feeling. Speaking of the last 10 minutes…

HOLY JEEZ THERE ARE A BILLION OF THEM! Iron Man and his buddies take on every Twilight-extra known to man as they battle the Extremis (infected? injected? enhanced?) goons in a shipyard, because hey, why not? Having not read any of the Iron Man comics, I was/am completely unaware of what Extremis is. The movie did a decent job explaining it, but I felt like there was so much more that could have been done with it. Maybe it could have been something that carried over to Iron Man 4? I was also bummed by the lack of an Avengers cameo, but I suppose I can wait for Thor 2 for that.

All in all I would give Iron Man 3 an 8/10. It had everything the casual fan would want, plus more. And you can’t ever go wrong with a sweaty Gwyneth Paltrow.

Ever.

Lammy Update
Unfortunately Cody and I didn’t win the Lammy for Best Vlog. I have to say, it would have been pretty sweet to hoist up the virtual trophy and slap a sweet graphic on our site claiming victory for ourselves, but it’s probably for the best. If we had won, we probably would have been offered a lucrative contract from some super awesome production company, all of the morning shows would have wanted us, and honestly, ain’t nobody got time for that.

The nomination was definitely appreciated. Thanks to Lindsay at French Toast Sunday for that. Congrats on your 2nd consecutive Best Design Lammy! You guys truly deserve it!

LAMMY TIME!

Howdy Internet folks!

We are honored (surprised!) to announce that we’ve been nominated for a LAMMY AWARD in the Best Vlog category! Pretty awesome if you ask us.

You can click the banner to the left to view all of the nominees, but really, we’re the only one you need to know about. Well, us and French Toast Sunday, because they rule.

Anyway, wish us luck and who knows… maybe we’ll get a reunion show in line, if only this summer had some good movies coming out…
