Movies Out This Weekend
The Watch - Seth Rogen and his writing partner Evan Goldberg team up with the scribe of “Mr. Popper’s Penguins” to bring us this tale of neighborhood watchman and aliens. The trailer looked pretty funny, and Moss from “The IT Crowd” is in this. My wife and I are going to see it today, so you’ll know if I liked it next week.
Step Up Revolution 3D - The revolution will not be televised--it will be in theaters in glorious digital 3D! Watch people dance and shit in this movie, if you want.
Movies I Watched This Week
The Dark Knight Rises 10/10 Great movie. Anne Hathaway is beautiful and Christian Bale has a beard.
Miss Congeniality 6/10 Really dumb, but fun. It’s like an 80s movie. Like “Mannequin” or “Weekend at Bernie’s.”
The Girlfriend Experience 4/10 Kind of boring.
My Science Project 7/10 A funny and ludicrous 80s comedy. Best line: “I’m so scared that I’m thinking about God.”
