There has been nothing on my TV but the Winter Olympics for the last 2 weeks...so why not just go with it and watch a movie full of Snowboarders? I'm talking Mountain Dew, baby!
We originally saw Ragnarok months and months ago, while it was still in the theater. It was a hilarious and amazing film, so I don't know why it took me so long to put together a review. Maybe it's the gushing - I feel uncomfortable gushing - it's so much more fun writing about a stinker. Ragnarok is definitely no stinker. But then I saw the deleted scene that was released this week in anticipation of the DVD release.
One bad chicken nugget, that's all it takes.
Several months ago, I caught Lily watching this movie. I snatched the remote QUICK. I'd forgotten about it until I was chillin' with my friend Rachel. She lured me in with the promise of a glorious merkin...and y'all know how I feel about merkins.
I know it's a risk, but I'm risking my kids aspiring to truancy by introducing them to Ferris Bueller. It's a risk I'm willing to take...
The Breakfast Club meets Apocalypse Now - how's that for a fucking amazing tagline?
The people who brought us The Haunted Trailer were back at Frightmare with another locally made horror film. I was tentatively afraid that Getting Schooled would be a rehash of Haunted Trailer, but it was totally different in tone and content. Lucky Chucky is no one-trick pony. Yes, it's horror and yes, it's funny...but there wasn't a single fart joke in the whole film. Not even a church house squeaker.
I didn't realize how out of touch I am with the film world until thus weekend. I thought that this was opening weekend for Night at the Museum 3, but turns out it actually opened before Xmas. Doh!
When Anchorman 2 was announced, before all the hype, the special appearances and Dodge commercials, I badly wanted to see it in the theater. Then I (and probably the rest of the country) got kind of sick of seeing Ron Burgundy. And then I forgot about Anchorman 2 until the DVD came out...
Everything is awesome!
Actually...the only thing about The Lego Movie that's not awesome is the song, "Everything is Awesome" - because that song has been stuck in my head for weeks on end. It's the only thing I hear. Maybe I shouldn't have switched my ringtone from "What Does the Fox Say?" to "Everything is Awesome"? Maybe it's my own fucking fault?
Unless they were swinging their trouser snakes around, this movie was utterly boring.
