Recent Movies

Ok, I'm not a real big movie fan, but my wife and I have watched about 4 movies in the past 5 days. Here they are and my thoughts.

Drag Me to Hell
Not like gory-scary, but more like things popping out at you scary. I screamed like a little girl at one point, I'll admit. I've never seen Evil Dead 2, but according to my wife, this was very similar as far as the type. I thought overall it was a good film, it was a kind of silly but yet scary with a pretty good storyline. I'd recommend it, but don't expect Friday the 13th kind of horror.

Tropic Thunder
Well, I think this was hyped up a little too much for me. I didn't really read the cover so the whole actors doing a movie in the movie was a little suprise for me. From there, it was just bits and pieces of humor. I will say that Robert Downey plays one hell of a old school brotha. He kinda made me think that's what Ving Rhames would sound like in that role playing himself. It was pretty good. That was easily the best part of the movie. Maybe I missed something, maybe it was hyped up too much for me, but I've seen and laughed harder at other movies.

Pineapple Express
Lots of smokin goin on in this movie if you know what I mean. It was ok. Again, another movie I thought I may have read too much hype on. It was funny, but some of that dumb college mary jane goofy humor. Not was I was expecting. Seth Rogen played perfectly into his role in this movie. However, seeing Harry from Spider Man (James Franco) in that part was really wild. That was surely a different side, and yet he was pretty good.

The Number 23
I love Jim Carrey, I've always thought he was a great actor and had great sense of humor. Liar Liar was probably the funniest movie he's done, though Ace Ventura was really good too (part 1, not part 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6). Anyhow, this was surely a brain trip. Right when you think you have it figured out, or even if you're on the verge of still being confused, it takes a quick right turn and you're like "WOW, didn't expect that!". I liked it, check it out.

This concludes the movie review list for today. Hopefully I'll have some more reviews for you coming up soon.
