I thought I’d make a few comments on some recent movies I’ve seen. Not reviews per se…
Super 8 – Boring, catch ET instead.
The Smurfs – Not as bad as you’d think.
Horrible Bosses – Pretty good though a bit darker than I expected. You go into these movies expecting wacky hijinks and life lessons to be learned, instead we get actual murder.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Stranger Tides – Yawn. I think we’re done here.
Bad Teacher – They accidently had a funny part when she’s grading papers. Otherwise movie is dull and boring. I’m also unsure if we’re supposing to be actually rooting for Diaz’s character. It’s not that she’s a teacher with a few vices, she’s a repugnant human being with no redeeming qualities at all.
Tucker & Dale vs Evil – Catch the red ban trailer, all the good parts are there.
I caught a few older movies as well recently:
The Hunt for Red October – Still awesome.
Air Force One – Another one that holds up quite well, logic leaps aside. Glenn Close really should’ve signed the paper.
